I woke up feeling perfectly fine headed to my new (2nd) job…got there and got settled in for the day…well I didn’t get to settled…out of nowhere and without warning things got bad and fast. I was lucky my boss was there….I felt faint and shaky…yeah I forgot to eat breakfast so I thought a couple of cookies would help…I didn’t feel hungry but I ate them anyway. Soon, very soon we could tell that wasn’t going to cut it so he offered up a candy bar. But I needed to lay down or pass out, did that…but it didn’t help. So I came home and made it to the sofa but then I had to run to the bathroom where I puked up about 5 pounds worth of fluids…not good but I felt better so I went back to work. Big mistake….I managed to hang on for at least an hour then I gave up and came back home. I am now down 10 pounds and not feeling all that great. Hope I feel better soon…I cannot afford to stay home and this is no way to start off at a new job. I’m feeling too pukey to stand for long and I dread disappointing boy # 3 when he gets home shortly….he was wanting me to take him to the mall but driving is out of the question….wish I had a bitch right about now….
Day before yesterday as I sat outside enjoying the pleasant weather I saw a butterfly, hadn’t seen one in a while, it never stopped long enough for me to take a pic….
Today my beautiful friend posted a picture of a butterfly as it reminded her of me….
Today I felt butterflies….mixed feelings on those….my heart went pitter patter…yep I heard it.

Vanity be thy name, well no not at all.
There is a creature of sorts (my guess would be a fucking cutesy squirrel that ain’t gonna be so cute if we meet) chewing on something under my house. Not sure what the fuck it is. The damn squatter will hopefully be smart enough to leave on its own after we (by we I mean my boys) move some boards or die soon….then of course I may end up having to contend with the death stench. Life just doesn’t want to come easy….sheesh…if I didn’t marinate in bad luck I’d have none of it.
Went shopping today….stop number one yielded a skirt and a blouse, stop number two was more giving…I ended up with a skirt, jeans, bra, shoes, tights, trouser socks, and some other socks, some organic conditioner, 3 bags of Godiva chocolate, an HDMI cord and I paid nothing! (cause I used my gift cards and gift certificates I earned from my rewards cards.) I still have enough left over to shop for the boys….but I’m waiting for the prices to drop some more.
I did a load of laundry and I’ve yet to iron it….I did manage to put most of it away….that included stuff from the last time I did laundry.
Had a short convo (if it can even be called that, heck it wasn’t even long enough for me to bother spelling out the whole word) with the oven this morning….I am just left SHM….and wondering…oh well…on to other randomosity….
Got my nails done….by self…and tomorrow I will probably be undoing and redoing again. I am just no good at keeping my nail polish from smudging or chipping.
Also thinking of going shorter with the do….we shall see….I love the lightheadedness….
Back hurts, back is a bitch…which serves as a reminder that I am one too…..
Having lunch with my daughter from another mother tomorrow….can’t seem to decide on the where…last week we had lunch and I was so Italianed out…but funny thing is I’m craving Italian again….but I think I’ll cook Italian Saturday and leave it open for either Mexican or Chinese tomorrow….
It’s all I have for now….unless I can think of anything to add to this….
And piss on any busy bodies reading this….yes, PISS ON YOU!!!
We (my Auntie (newest Magnolia) and I) left last Thursday to the little city of Grand Saline the name is taken from a large salt deposit in the area, currently mined by Morton Salt. I like my salt so knowing there is plenty of salt if I needed my fix was comforting.
There were to be 8 Magnolia’s to be meeting up for a 4 day weekend, no men, no children, no worries and no drama. Many of us were meeting face to face for the very first time, but the connections had been fostered prior to our actual face to face encounters. My big moment of sadness was our missing Magnolia, the beautiful, funny and very much loved MzTracy, and my BFF. She was with us in spirit but having her there would have been the icing on the cake. Life and its effed up circumstances prevented her from joining us, so we have to find a way and a date to get to her…and we will!
We played a couple of fun games, one was “The Storymatic” and the other one I can’t remember the name of, but it was designed to prompt responses that would reveal tidbits of who we are and how we think and feel about certain things. I would have loved staying up later and playing either one but we were all tired and fighting sleep.
The biggest take away from this weekend were the bonds we created and strengthened, we have built a connection that time and distance will not hinder. For me it was a refreshing reminder of what true friendships mean, my tolerance for superficial friends is low and I value my time with friends, I want to be present and I want my friends to be present and that we did.
For my she-roes…y’all are the wind beneath my wings (yes I have wings and when those don’t work my broom works just as well)
Did you ever know that you’re my hero,
and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle,
for you are the wind beneath my wings.
It might have appeared to go unnoticed,
but I’ve got it all here in my heart.
I want you to know I know the truth, of course I know it.
I would be nothing without you.
Go to the volunteer gig for a couple of hours…√
Stupid sleep fairy is pissing me off…I tried going to bed early, but all that does is give me about an hour of sleep and then I’m back to being up…still haven’t trip checked my car, so maybe later this morning I can get it taken care of, then I have my volunteer gig at 12:30, I think I will put a roast in the crockpot….maybe make baked potatoes too and some veggies…I’m hungry.
I got rid of a bunch of magazines yesterday, some more books and some clothes the boys had outgrown. I was able to sell some of their stuff, may have the flute sold as well. I don’t mind giving away their stuff, but if I can make a little money to replace their clothes then I need to do that. It is amazing how much stuff they have in their closet that just doesn’t get worn….it’ll make it easier on me for the next school year, I just need to find them pants, socks and underwear…shirts are the easy part. It also makes me feel good to know that other kids will have “new” school clothes.
I should just get up and start a load of laundry….but I’ll wait…maybe I’ll go back to reading…or stay up another hour and a half and get the boys up, then go back to attempting sleep. FML & FY2
that’s enough mindless dribble out of me…i love u
Early yesterday there was a shooting involving a police officer, he was shot at and luckily was wearing a vest. The wanna be cop killer is still at large, not good news, especially in light of the fact that he is allegedly holed up a few streets away from here. I have two precious babies to protect…and nothing to protect them with…aside from a phone. I don’t think that is causing my anxiety, but because I’m awake, it is on my mind…
Of course, now I’m thinking maybe I should buy a gun…I’m no longer married so I don’t have to worry about killing a husband that pisses me off…but I do have a couple of teenagers frequently at odds…so a gun may not be a good idea….oh well…guess time for plan C…I don’t have a plan C…yet.
