So in order to get my dad to answer the call. I have to call three times in a row. The first time for him to ignore it. The second time for him to get to the phone only not in time to answer it before voice mail picks it up. The third time for him to actually pick it up. No, it’s really not worth it.
I finished reading Dune Road by Jane Green. It was a bit odd reading some of her British colloquialisms in an American novel. She went into a lot of detail about her characters and I almost feel like this is a beginning of a series. But she did seem to wrap up all of the storylines neatly at the end. I do wonder about her title choice of Dune Road. Not much of the novel takes place there. It...
Wow! I am actually full from dinner: 3 cups of broccoli & and a slice of pumpkin pie.
Poppa throws a half dozen questions at Ryan in about 30 seconds. Ryan doesn’t answer because he can’t process them that quickly. Poppa gives up and starts his rosary. Ryan begins to engage and Poppa is angry at the interruption. Ack!
OK so each malted milk ball has only 10 calories. I am still not counting the 3 I ate. It was barely enough to taste. Bring me a box and we’ll talk.
Not sure about this skirt.
Website down again. Boys sick & staying home. Stress levels. Very high. And not in a good way.
How odd that a day could start out so good and end like shit. Trying to look on the bright side but it’s too dark right now. Sex would be great right now. Something to completely take my mind off of this crap. Hmm…
I am really sad tonight. I knew the store wasn’t going to make but I was hoping to last a little longer. The hackers are too much for me and I don’t have the skills to get rid of them. I could hire a web developer but that’s just more money for a store that isn’t generating anything. So I will start packing things up and having more frequent garage sales. What else can I...
This might be the last straw. Apparently they just can’t leave my site alone. I don’t have the energy to keep up with it. It’s not worth the aggravation and stress. I FUCKING had hackers!
Am I a bad mom?
ruthakers: I don’t think I could live with myself if you said yes. But I need to know. Do my kids deserve better? Bad moms never ask the question.
I hate rude people. It’s only going to get worse as we get closer to Christmas. Ironic? This is why I try to get done with my shopping early, to avoid the nastiness of the season.
Too tired. Too anxious. Too guilty. Too fat. Too irresponsible. Too broke.
Something is really odd. I don’t remember renewing Martha Stewart. I clearly remember seeing Dec09 on the label and thinking I won’t renew. But I looked at my latest issue, December 2009, and the label says Dec11. I am pretty certain they aren’t auto-renewing on my charge card since the card I would have used is gone. Is someone renewing a gift for me? Who? Is it Lisa? I...
Guilt. Hank is in bed b/c he felt dizzy. I am going out anyway. I suck.
My stomach is in knots. Think I need to poop. Note from Ryan’s teacher that he has missed 3 assignments. Email saying I cancelled my Internet service. WTF?
I am starting to like this Tazo Sweet Cinnamon Tea.
“As a rule of thumb, if the protein, fat and fibers grams are equal or great than the carb grams, it’s low glycemic.”
Going to be late to my meet- up this morning. But I didn’t want to take advantage of dad 2 mornings in a row. He hates to have his morning routine interrupted. I understand.
The Kelby seminar was great. Though I feel like a dork waiting around for attention. Thankfully those I admire were gracious enough to pet my on my head.
I had a very off dream this morning about the Kelby seminar today. First off, I was late. I missed a good portion of it. Bonnie & Tina were there. Tina? I sat next to Tina, Bonnie was at the far end of the table. RC was nipping around. Then we had to put together some Children’s toys without direction. I think we were supposed to think like a kid. I picked a parking garage toy but...
I AM excited to go to the seminar tomorrow. I just wish I didn’t have so much to worry about with the boys. Dad just isn’t the support he used to be.
So… is the point of saying a daily rosary and reading certain passages from Bible to waste time so you don’t have time to have fun and get into trouble?
I finished Julie & Julia by Julie Powell. Bonnie lent me the book. It’s not one I would choose to read on my own. It was OK. It’s hard to believe she has become a writer out of this. I don’t think she is all that good. But who am I? Grammar, yes. Writer, no. Anyway, I didn’t like the hops and skips through time. It did read like someone was talking to you but with a...
My efiin’ site was hacked AGAIN! I am ready to give up.
I have no husband to vent about. However, my father arrived a week ago.
I really hate the fact the iphone restore doesn’t restore. Sure, it can restore to factory settings. But don’t ask it to restore from backup. It doesn’t.
merlin: lonelysandwich: “Violin” by Roxana “The ‘clean your bathroom’ comments on the Put This On video made me dig up this little clip I made for Adam the first year we started dating. Also, I DO clean my bathroom!” -Nerd Boyfriend’s Roxana Altamirano She does. She does clean our bathroom. I just love this so, so much. Roxana should be the Pope of Something.
I KNOW I should be grateful that my father is alive, well, and willing to do the grocery shopping. I just wish he would listen to me when I tell him that I will get the bananas.
Except for the chiropractor, my dad is free. Should I go to the zoo? I really need to take some pictures.
The problem with being a good baker, is that I want to eat ALL the cookies. At one sitting.
No school tomorrow. Go out or stay home? One boy says out, one boy says home.
Hiding in my bedroom. I am 44 years old and this is my house yet I am hiding on my bedroom with the door shut. I just don’t feel like being social at the moment. I feel like journaling, in a book, with a pen. But all I can find are filled journals. Should I buy one? Will I use it?
Reading this series of books makes me want to get back into journaling. But I had hating having keep track of a physical book. I know where my iPhone is most of the time. And it fits in my pocket. Then again, my life is not filled with single-hood angst. There are no crushes to write about. No obsessions about ex-boyfriends. No eye-rolling at parents who don’t understand. Oh wait. I do...
New pain in my ankle. Making it very difficult to walk. So glad the weekly meetings are back. Can I go back to bed?
And so begins all the little annoying things that dad does. Let it go. Let it go. Let it go. Is it working?
I cheated. I had to know if they eventually get together. Frankly I HATE on-again off-again relationships in books and tv that string us readers and viewers through it all. I am too emotional. This is probably why I really never dated.
I hate when couples break up. I get nauseous. Yes, they are a fictional couple. I am reading a book.
Busted at Starbucks by Andy’s teacher and her boyfriend Brad. They are going to VW car show in Dade City. I’d love to go, great photo op.
Today begins a new season of the Church of Starbucks. It’s busy & crowded. I don’t like it.
No suspended account this morning. This is good. Let’s hope they stay away.
I am almost afraid to even try to post to my blog for fear of my account being cancelled. Hopefully the upgrades will keep things safe but who knows.
Did well on the garage sale, over $300. Almost bought 3 books because they were 40% off. Then I checked amazon and saw they are even cheaper there. But I can wait. I have enough reading material at home. I checked the bargain area but nothin appealed to me. I feel like I should be doing something while Ryan shops. Queue is too long for tea. Too full from lunch anyway. I SO hope I fixed...
I am really troubled by my neighbor’s behavior. I emailed her daughter. I hope everything is OK.
