Lemme say it's hotter than than a cat with gasoline drawers! I don't know what that means........but coworker is always saying it.
Hump day heats up for me beginning around 1am....my left eye was in pain...gotta be a migraine I finally said to self about 6am! Now to find the Imitrex and I'll be good to go. Emailed coworker and said "going back to bed to die". 9am eyeball still wants to fall outta the socket. Hmmmmmm not a migraine anymore eh? OK, 4 Advil and back to bed. Then me thinks to self again "Self?".... Remember Monday when you were having trouble with that foggy vision from staring at that bright window? Is this the same eye you have that freckle on (dr said it was OK but don't let it turn into a tumor) ?
Could just be J-land-itis from reading all these entries LOL!!!! Nah, I think it was a migraine gone wacko. Hubby cooked a chicken stir fry last night and I'm pretty sure there must have been some MSG hiding somewhere. That stuff knocks me for a loop.
So Miss Tara has left the building. She had an Acro class at 6pm then it was off to a friends home for the night....I'll pick her up tomorrow for her technique class. This is the same friend whose Dad calls me whenever he has her and he wants a "babysitter". I told the Mom that I've been ignoring her X's calls lately for that reason. She says she just wishes he'd give up and go away! He is a control freak and is so trying to prove she's an unfit Mom. Duh, what will he do with a 9 year old 365?? Sure ain't gonna pawn her off on me.
I think I've been missing the point with this kid though. When she called me Monday, she said "I haven't seen Tara in sooooooo long and I miss her"....guess I've been forgetting that part all these times that I've been dissing the Dad. I just want him to take responsibility for her and his time with her. If he knows she'll be with him this weekend then DON'T make other plans and say OH WELL, Sharon will keep her. Don't get me wrong, he's not a deadbeat....owns his own business and pays his CS. And I don't mind if he's working late or on a Saturday to have his kid, but..........make your plans to be with your child! (Plus I don't always want to be bothered by having another child around - especially when I have to pull teeth to get this one to behave or clean up)
Yeah, OK, in a perfect world, I know
My kid is well mannered and rule oriented. She knows better. I don't just say this because she's mine. It's her genetics plus people tell me that she is very good. I tell them they have to be brutally honest with me. If my kid is a brat TELL ME! But I know she's not, she's just not made up that way.
We did have some drama today.....I had told her she had to straighten out her room. Boy was she hating it that I was home today. I reminded her of it constantly. She griped a little, but she did make her bed and rake out a pathway for me to get to her closet LOL!! She also wanted me to write her a check....................HELLO! for what??? She said it was for special occassions. I said "like buying Chase a birthday present this week?". She said yes, but it was probably to go along with me writing her a check. So I made HER write out the check. I gave her one of mine, said "look at it good" and tell me what goes where.
She wanted $50............she called her Grandma.
Grandma agreed to split it with me, she'll give her $25 and I'll give her $25. Afterall, we are going to Myrtle Beach this weekend and it WAS Grandma's idea that Miss T go to Build-A-Bear. So it's all too fair that G-ma pay, right? RIGHT! Now Miss Priss has a check in her wallet for $25. Told her now she'd have to go to the bank to get the money. This should be an experience for her!
The pool boy is having a time. We bought a chlorinator with this pool. It makes chlorine from salt that is added to the water. Well, it doesn't seem to be working. So he's calling and calling to find out whatzzup. Yes, he's cleaned it according to the instructions. Yes, he's tested the water. What? They want a copy of a water test done by a pool company. Jesus Louisus....He ran by a place today on the way to T's class...all levels are great, but the chlorine level (duh). He's outside now, adding shock, muriatic acid and topping off the water. OH yeah, it's just another day in paradise.
thank you Chris!!
