Black Cloud or Loser? You decide

Well, yesterday I left work.
Started my minivan.
Wait!
Let me rephrase...attempted to start.
Died.
Right there.
In the parking lot.
Had to leave it over night.

Ok no problem.

Got a ride to work from the moms.
The pops was coming to get it towed.

Then it happened.

Sybill Hitler or as I like to call her....that fuckin bitch (oh yea, I said it!) got her way.
I started @ 8:30.
By 9 am I was "Let Go".
Yep.
Nice way of saying "FIRED!"

Really?
Is this a trend?
Am I just a loser?

I was told I don't have the passion for my job.
Um, it's a data entry job, you order the product, you set up the shipment.
You close.
You bill.
You collect the $$$.
I don't know what passion they were friggin lookin for.
Was I supposed to show up everyday with a red rose between my teeth & do the tango?
Was I to grab my coworkers & jump up & down with joy when my salesmen got orders?
Bitter?
I don't know yet.
Upset?
Yes very.
Worried?
Yes but not as much as last time. Odd.
Self confidence destroyed?
OH YEA!

So I stopped by the temp agency that got me the job that let me go & they are going to help me find another one.

Now I have to return to this job on Tues, Weds. & Thurs so I get the health benefits for the month. Bobster will be picking up Cheeks on his. I will go without for now.
Great news eh?

My big boss offered to keep me on for a month.
I declined.
I told her I would feel uncomfortable.
Hell. I already do.

My official last day will be Sept 10th.
They are giving me 2 weeks severance + my unpaid vaca days.
Told me they wouldn't deny my unemployment either.
How nice of them!

My big boss told me she understood I had a lot on my plate & a lot of stress.
Really?
Really?
So I guess losing my job elevates some of the stress?
Hmm...don't know her thought process but whatever.

Wait, saved the best for last.
I had to sit, outside, with my sweater that I kept in the office for cold days & my 3 bags of crap that I had in there while I waited for my dad to come get me b/c the darn van was still dead.
Good times!
Good times!

So.................
Wish me luck.
If you know of a company hiring, let me know, I'm there!

Rant over.
Woops out!!

On my mind...


Honestly, doesn't he make you want to jump up & down & laugh!

Anyway, tonight I have been thinking of Michael Vick.

Yes, he's a poor excuse for a man but today he gave his "statement", in between his endless mutterings of "you know" which by the way, I don't know. That's why you are telling me.

He mentioned that he found Jesus.

Now exactly where did he find him? Was under the sofa cushion? Was he in the kitchen cabinet behind the canned green beans & when Mike moved them, Jesus popped out & went "BOO."

I think it's a wonderful thing when people have religious & religious values but it is a sad thing when celebs say they "found Jesus" b/c a PR person told them it will improve their image. I don't feel Michael Vick was sincere in his "apology" nor do I think he really found Jesus.

I think he hopes this will lesson his sentence & people will take pity on him.

Well Mr. Vick, why don't we take you, put you in a fight & when you don't perform well, we will light you on fire, kick you & torture you til you can't stand it or worse! Would that make you see what you did was wrong? I don't believe you in a second. I think you are only sorry b/c you got caught. If you never got caught, you would have continued your activity.

On that note...

Woops out~!

And that was the week that was

Just a random photo I chose to highlight. This is from the first celebration we had to celebrate Cheekers 1st birthday. The Thurs before Bobster left for the Land of Goya.

On the right, is Danny, our 11 yr old nephew. The left is Christopher, he's 8. They are chowing down on the cupcakes I made & Erin iced to celebrate with. They were some damn good cupcakes.

So as I type I am watching "Snakes on a Plane." People, if you haven't seen this, please don't bother. Cheesy is not the word. Altho. I do think Julianna Margolis lookes like Alison, Chris & Tim's mom. The movie tho. well the acting is terrible but I think it's the type of movie that every time it's on HBO I will prob. watch it. Pathetic? Yes, yes it is but it's better than "Elmo's World."

Bought Chris sneaks today & the store was having a sale. The second was 50% off so I got Cheekers his 1st pair of Converse.
OMG!
Freakin!

Adorable!

He has been on the move lately. Not walking but crawling, pulling himself up, cruising while holding on.
BUT
You can not help him to walk, b/c he will go limp & sit down.
Yep.
That's my kid.

On a more downer note, I went thru some of his clothes from last year to get ready to either give away, sell or donate.
Talk about heartbreaking.
We aren't haing anymore.
Financially we shouldn't
&
I am not the most happiest person when pregnant & I had post partum so I don't want to put everyone thru that again.
Plus, Cheekers has been sleeping thru the night since he was 9 weeks old.
Sleep is a glorious thing!
So why didn't anyone tell me it would pull on my heartstrings to go thru his stuff. I did keep a few things & I haven't gone thru it all but WOW! Made me get all sniffley.
Plus he's now on 2 sippies a day.
Bottle only with breakfast.
I know I should break him of it BUT this is the one thing that is keeping him a baby.
I know!
I know!
I am terrible but he's only 12 mos old.
He has one bottle & take the binky here & there.
Am I a terrible mom?
Honestly, I don't think so.
I don't see him in 25 yrs in therapy b/c I gave him a bottle & binky after he was 12 mos.
If he's going to therapy it's because I have screwed him up mentally in other ways!!! :>)

Alright, I am exhausted.
2nd load of wash in.
One more to go.
Then it's "C ya in the morn!"

Woops out~!

33 3/4 inches long.
And he is 12 months & 4 days old!

Getting the boys this weekend & next so we can get back on the schedule that we were on before Bobster left for the land of Goya! Should be a fun weekend.

Day after tomorrow my baby turns one!
ONE!
ONE!

Where did the year go?
Why didn't anyone tell me the 1st year goes by in a blink of an eye?
Wasn't it yesterday that I was bitching because my belly was so big, I couldn't lift my left & I was uncomfortable?
Wait.
Yep, that was indeed yesterday....man! I've got to loose this weight.
Seriously, my stretch marks are still vibrant purple. My Cheekers can not be one! I won't allow it!

Join me on Thursday for his One Year Portraits that I will upload.
All I will say is....Aloha, Mr. Hand!

Woops out!

Anyone miss me?

Haven't posted in awhile.
Lots have happened but it would take me forever to post it all.
So in short here is what has been going on:
Bobster home, got kids for the week.
Pizza Hut, gave my food away to someone else with the same name "BOB", me = not happy, me = yelling for the mgr. Mgr came with spear thru his skin right under the lip.
Very attractive.
Ended up with free dinner.
Sybill been super nice.
Took kids home.
Cheekers getting molars! Cheekers is crawling all over the place.
Today:
Bobster left for the big PR.
Not happy! Me or Him.
So that's what has been going on in a nutshell.
If you need me to clarify anything, just ask.
I still have questions to answer from an older post.
I remember one of them was from Jacqui who wonders if I got married & she just missed it.
So in answer to that question Jax......
Nope, not yet.
Still just living together :>)

Woops out!
