Right now I am determined to be happy and content from now until Thursday. Despite the negative thoughts and stuff falling apart around me, I am going to be fine. It nothing huge, it's just little things after little things after little things after little things. For instance, yesterday my coworker brought in some coke in cans. I should have left it alone like I usually do but I took one and put it in the freezer. This morning I saw that it exploded over everything in the fridge so I had to clean the freezer out and wipe off all my co workers stuff! It's not big deal but still! I just want to scream. I WILL have a happy birthday tomorrow, even if I have to pretend that all is right with the world to get it.
27 is NOT old Mistress :-). Don't be mad cuz you are 3 days in and I'm still 26! ROFL!
I haven't felt much like blogging nor responding to comments, but I will today.
Did Harry Potter die? I know someone knows. I've watched the first movie and that is as far as I've dove into the series, but I am curious if he died at the end.
Drew Carey is replacing Bob Barker. WTF? *cue losing music..boom boom boomboom woooooooooooooom*
I got the back crawl, now the breast stroke is messing with me.
I went home early yesterday because the maintenance folks were coming out to evaluate the plumbing issues I was having. While chilling on my couch watching my daytime court shows there is a knock on my door. It's my neighbors 7 or 8 year old daughter wanting to know if she could use my phone. Okay fine. I didn't stand over her as she made her call so I didn't know at the time who she was talking to. She finished her call and went about her business. I assumed that maybe my neighbors phone was out and she needed to make a call. No big deal. I had my front blinds cracked looking out for the maintenance dude, so when I peeped out the window the little girl wasn't in site. I assumed that she went home.
The maintenance dude comes and he is going in and out getting various things and when he comes in with his ladder he tells me a little girl wants to speak to me outside. I go to door and it's my neighbors daughter. She asked me if she could have something to drink. This led me to ask her if she was locked out the house. She was and the call she made was to her mother who was now on the way from the next town over. I knew it would take her mom 15-20 mins. to get home so I asked her if she wanted to come in and wait for her mom to get home. Granted it was not as hot as it has been lately, but it was still too hot to be standing outside. I offered her a glass of water because that is the only liquid I have in the house right now. Why this girl scrunch her face up but accepted the offer? I am sorry but me and Pooka don't have issues drinking water so that look took me off guard. It's hot, she thirsty and she frowning up at some water. She better recognise!
Anywho, she is sitting on my loveseat that is next to a coffee table that currently holds my media. No, I haven't brought a media storage tower yet, hush! LOL Then without asking she starts flipping through tapes and cd's. I didn't say anything. Then as she was going through my cd's she placed one to the side. I just sat there and watched her do her thing. Then she looks up at me and asked "you don't got no rap?" I tell her that I mostly listen to r&b then she asked if Pooka listened to rap. I tell her that I don't allow my daughter to listen to it. Which isn't completely true we both hear rap songs on the radio. I just don't buy it. I haven't brought much of anything in awhile but that isn't the point.
As she is rummaging through the things (which she still never asked if she could go through my stuff) she saw her older sister come home. She hops up, grabs her things and leaves. When she gets to my threshold she says that she forgot the cd. She turns around, goes back to my coffee table and picks up the Faith Evans cd she had placed to the side as she was looking at what I had. Instead of asking if she could borrow the cd, she says something like...Imma listen to this, I'll bring it back and walked out. I wish I could remember exactly what she said but it wasn't "May I borrow this cd?" *eyeroll* Again, I brushed it off and said "well you know where I live" and closed the door. I know I may never see my Faith Evans cd again, but to be honest I may have listened to that cd 2 or 3 times in the many years that I've had it. I am not going to have a stroke if I never get it back. *shrug* Did you think I got a thank you, head nod, kiss my foot, anything for the swallow of water she took out my cup or for letting her sit in the AC while she waited for her mom? Nope!
The lack of manners the entire time blew me!!!! I mean really! It made me realise the importance of enforcing and installing manners into Pooka. What made it even worse was when I was telling Snookums about it he asked me did the mother come by to thank me. I didn't even think about that! I mean I don't live in a bad part of town, but people are crazy! People will snatch up kids that are alone in freakin' heartbeat!!! There are others things that were wrong about that whole situation and wrong in general, but I have to remember that that household isn't mine and I don't run nothing over there.
