I just spent $38 including shipping on CDs for Tony for Valentine’s Day off half.com Because nothing says love like rock ‘n’ roll.
Neither here nor there today
Very blah feeling. Not unhappy, not happy. Not sad or angry either. Just blah. Maybe I’m depressed? Maybe I’m just bored. I’m 220 (my magic number) pages into the Physick Book of Deliverance Dane and I sort of wish I could just go lay on my bed with it for the rest of the day and ignore all my responsibilities. I’m going to go make turkey spinach meatballs and clean...

I’m not worried at all, in the slightest. My Dd did an STD test on me a while back for something stupid and unrelated, and was surprised when tada… negative. I made the same joke with him back then. Still not...

Last week was a very stressful week work wise and also physically for me it was a bad week. I don’t think I’ve...
The library book I got is “The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane” by Katherine Howe in case anyone is interested. I saw it at Barnes & Noble for $6.97 the other day, thought it was interesting looking but forgot to buy it. Hooray library!
Weird is pretty normal around here
Hannah just came into the living room covered in 35 calorie fudge-cicle and said, “I choose ice cream!” Then Jeremiah asked her if she could see up his nose. I had a meeting with my boss tonight— the head children’s director for a multi-million dollar church, and during the course of the night I suggested I may have gone home from an event and drank and I also said if...
I don't have a knitting project to take to ballet...
What am I going to do?
I’m also getting a little nervous about the meeting I’m having with my boss tonight to discuss my job security; considering last week I forgot to pay 11 people and Friday night for a big event I’m going to have to leave for an hour of it.
OKay body, what gives?
I’ve felt great for the last 3 weeks. I totally quit drinking soda, I’ve been eating healthier. I haven’t hurt all over, I haven’t been exhausted every minute, I’ve only had a headache an average of once every 9 days as opposed to every day like I used to have them. Then last week hit. I am exhausted. I’ve woken up from at least 9hrs sleep every morning for...
We’re skipping church today. There’s no way Jeremiah, Hannah and Tony can shower and we can all eat breakfast and be ready to go in the next 10 minutes. (We got up at 10:30 but still, that would have only given us 45 minutes to do all that.) Plus I am still really hurting. I’m going to drink coffee and read the kids a Bible story. Christianity at it’s finest, I tell...
Home at 2:30am. Full day. Tony was off. We had a good time. He got Mom’s car running again while she and I saw One for the Money. Then we picked up favorite cousin in law and hit the used bookstore. The happiest place on earth. Then back to Mom’s, where Caty says she loves my family and their house. Then to MIL’s to visit with aunt and other cousin, cousin’s girlfriend,...
iknit replied to your post: I can’t figure out the stupid damn tail on this… can Ravelry help? Probably but my formerly jovial mood is disintegrating rapidly so instead of spending an hour pouring over project pages I’m just gonna wing it. Hell, Caty won’t know if the tail is wrong.
I can’t figure out the stupid damn tail on this dead fish hat.
Tonight while walking around the grocery store it hit me that I made mistake in scheduling a major event on the 3rd— a mistake I am reacting to as catastrophic because I am high strung and excitable, a mistake that in hindsight will probably be just a little hiccup. The gist of this is that I scheduled myself to lead and coordinate said major event, when in reality for 1 hour of it right...
Money, money, money
Thank the Lord I have a great, understanding and generous boss. She suggested I pay everyone I shorted an extra half an hour to make up for the fact that they’ll have to wait 2 weeks to get it added to their next check. Money greases wheels. I have no idea what people will say behind my back (nor do I care) and at least to my face, er… via text, they’re being very nice about...
It’s true, I grew up with chickens, but I hated them and they hated me. Mom...– Taken out of context from FreeRangeGrizz in this post http://freerangegrizz.tumblr.com/post/16578069982/meating-the-austrain because was beautifully written with truth. Chickens suck. They peck the feet of children. Eat them. That is all.
That didn't go like I planned
Yesterday was going to be a lay around the house and rest all day except from 4-5:25 when we go to out to taekwondo. Then my MIL called and said my favorite aunt and cousin-in-laws are in town for the weekend, and to come have spaghetti for dinner. So we did. I made the spaghetti and some cupcakes to go with it once I got there. I over beat the cupcakes and they turned out to be light airy...

Look what I made yesterday!
I have a friend who keeps asking me about knitted earband/headbands so I decided I’d surprise her by sending her some. I’m going to knit her a “Calorimetry” too. Might come up with a 3rd all on my own. This pattern I found on Ravelry and it was simply titled “Simple Bow Headband.” It took about 2hrs to make. It’s a little tight for my head, which...
I outlasted our niece. I gave her back to her parents at 4:50pm, and she promptly fell asleep in their car. I made it through work, even though I had to move 2 TV carts across the church, outside and up a ramp because they made it “easier” on us by installing a Mac so we wouldn’t have to turn 14 things on to use the DVD player. Only I can’t get the damn thing to...

Supposed to be doing paper work and next months’ schedule for work. Blinking a lot. So sleepy. Willing the next 35minutes til Tony gets home to go by very quickly.

misspoppet: srtadnasty: Cushioned toilet seats are gross. And that’s all I’ve got for today. And they hurt like hell when you get up if your butt is sunburned. So one time I laid in a tanning bed and burned my butt so the next time I went I wore panties so it wouldn’t happen again. Then later on that night I was getting in the shower and panicked. I come running out of the...
I can’t tell if she is the most curious child ever as a sign of intelligence, or if she’s just the nosiest freaking kid. But she’s just all up in everyone’s business all the time.
naimhe replied to your post: Seriously, seriously considering getting pregnant as an alternative to a period next month. try taking black cohosh. it’ll take a couple of months but should make your female life a lot easier to live with. Thanks, I’ll add it to my list for this weekend. Usually my monthly cycle isn’t a big deal, my PMS symptoms vary month to month on a cycle all their...
I spent $83 at the grocery store Sat night. I bought absolutely NO junk food unless you count the hummus. We are out of food already today. I mean seriously. Nothing in the freezer. No bread. Very little lunch meat that was reserved for dinner tomorrow night (sliders). WHAT IN THE EVER LOVING HELL?!! I WAS TAUGHT TO BETTER CARE FOR MY FAMILY. I suck at all the things this week. ALL THE...

I love the new Captain Morgan commercial
Where the scurvy pirate captain wakes up and takes his clothes off thru the ship so he can use the plank as a diving board. Don’t know why. But seriously. Half naked pirates and booze. It’s a good commercial.
I had a rough night. Hannah broke a bunch of little blood vessels around her eyes when she threw up last night. My inlaws are fine, just emotionally exhausted. Going to get my niece on our way to taekwondo this evening and she’ll spend the night here. My BIL’s work is paying for a 5hr cleaning crew for them and someone at their church is giving them a dryer, so all they need is...
Discovered at 12:15am that I was all out of pads and we were all out of toilet paper. Had to make a midnight run to the gas station. Picked up a candy bar while I was at it. Logged on to facebook to discover my SIL’s house caught on fire today— no idea why, or the damage. Only that she, her husband and 5 year old daughter are staying in a hotel for the time being and that she had a...
So…. Hannah exploded an entire packet of cocoa all over the kitchen, and her newly showered self so when it hit her wet hair it turned into cocoa sludge, after I’d just told her 2 or 3 times to not touch it and let me make it. I smacked her on the butt with my hand. She started crying so hysterically that she went into the bathroom and threw up on the floor. So I have cocoa sludge...
Finished Hannah’s legwarmer. Cast on the 2nd. Kids at work were great. Monday can suck my balls. I’m crabby and stabby and people suck. Not you. But people. Cranky Des is cranky and probably needs to go to bed. But the kids want hot cocoa instead. Bah.
I exploded a 100 calorie Monster coffee/energy drink all over the dashboard of my truck. H&R Block got us back $150 more dollars on a tax return *after* we paid them than we were going to get if I did them online. I’m OK with this. Tony says, “Oh good, you can get a new pair of shoes!” Apparently he was thinking that I need sneakers badly and not along my same peacock...
About every 33-35 days I get to thinking… Maybe 10hrs of excruciating labor would be a nice trade off for not having debilitating cramps 2 days a month for 9 months? Things to ponder while I put myself in my second Midol-induced coma for the day.
