Random on 3/3/08
Yesterday I was officially inducted to the Honour Society. At the last mintute I kinda wanted people to be there, but everyone had their life going on. It was boring anyways and the chicken they had afterwards was dry. I'll focus invites on my graduation. That's more important anyways.
Speaking of invites, some classmates of mine thought I was crazy for not planning to send invites for my graduation or buying a class ring. As long as my momma and 'em know when and where to be on that day I'm good. Knowing my momma she gonna call everyone and tell them what the deal is anyways, so why buy or make invites? LOL! I don't wear jewelry that much so again, why pay for a ring I won't wear? The only ring I wore consistantly was my engagement ring. That's about it! LOL
A certain (ex)blogger is newly engaged! YAY!
Today, 3/3/08, makes one year to the day of my first (technically 2nd) appointment to see Jey my loctician. The first one was a week or 2 prior to help me with the locks I tried to start on my own. After washing my hair and looking at what I attempted to do. She told me what my hair would probably look like later and basically asked me what I wanted to do. Once I told her, her suggestion was to start over and to come back with my 'fro on the third. Thank God that I did cuz I am loving my shake and go right about now! LOL
Spring break is next week. I took a few days off of work too so for a few days I won't have nothing to do while Pooka is at school. I CAN'T WAIT! I plan to be away from everything except my car, bed, and kitchen. I wonder how long I can stay in my pj's? Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
I need to increase my social circle. The mother of Pooka's classmate was doing the social thing and gave me her number. I think she is a single parent too and she lives near by. We plan to get the kids together for a playdate of sorts since there are not many kids Pooka's age on my street and the same for her. Pooka's classmate asked me if she could spend the night. I don't have a problem with that if it's a slumber party type situation. I know they are young but I am not going to send my daughter over some little boys house by herself. If there is a few kids that means there is a chance someone else can be the patient when they play doctor...feel me? LOL
Some people are fortunate enough to have met and interacted with their true love. I am not one of those fortunate folks, but Snookums is. Their relationship ended suddenly years ago and she just kinda dissappeared off the earth. He didn't have an explaination or anything. Just BOOM...gone. This weekend I offered to use some things I have access to to help him find her. It may seem odd that I would offer something that could hurt me in the end, but if you knew you could possibly make the life of someone who has hurt so much and that you care about better and brighter, it would be wrong and selfish of me not to at the very least offer to do anything.
Starting Thursday I will be doing an hour a week at an orthopedic clinic. I haven't stopped at the outpatient clinic and don't plan to until April when the semester is done. It just that things came a bit earlier than expected. The aide at the outpatient clinic didn't sound too excited about her interview last week. She said that they would tell them by the end of the week what the results are good or bad. I still have my fingers crossed she made it in so I can have her job. But you never know. If she stays then I would have already put my foot in the door of the orthopedic clinic. Oddly enough because of the hour slot that I preferred, I get to shadow with the supervisor over there! Guess it's time to pull out the killer smile :-D Maybe it will keep her from looking at my belly. The orthopedic clinic has a much stricter dress code which includes a solid color polo shirt TUCKED IN to some khakis. Being the woman of size I am I never really wear shirts tucked in. But hey, I gotta do what I gotta do. Guess I need to find my good and strong pair of girdle panties! ROFL!
The apartment complex installed to shower and faucet heads in the kitchen and bathrooms. I like 'em. The shower heads are the ones you can adjust so it can do a light rain on one end of the spectrum, then have 3 strong beams of water on the other. Good stuff.
I went to the laundrymat with all my clean wet clothes. In the second time going to this particular place I noticed that it was like 80-90% men. The place is in an Hispanic strip mall so it was 80-90% Hispanic men. In my head I was like "okay so Maria don't wash clothes." Or maybe Jose is single and has no choice but to wash his own draws. *shrug* I am not big on gender roles and what the man or womans job is, but it's always and interesting site to see a man washing, drying, and folding clothes.
My cousin who was pregnant with the twins had her babies on 2/29! Leap year babies! YAY! More cousins for me! I am going to wait until they get some more weight on their bodies and their immune system is stronger before Pooka and I go down there and play with them. The girl was 4lbs and the boy was 4lbs 3oz. Awwwwwwwwwww so very tiny! YAY!
