I don't know what it's going to take to get my zest for reading people business back! LOL I'm still working on it.
If I have your number and you don't have an answering machine or voicemail and saw someone from a 919 number call you this weekend...it was probably me. I am trying to do the reach out and touch people thing. My phone never really rings, but the phone works both ways so I called a bunch of folks. I still don't believe there are folks around that don't have some kind of leave me a message service or machine of some kind....hmmmmm
Pooka's classmate had a party at a local park. I was the ummmmm token family there outside of one Hispanic family. Everyone was really nice and I was more comfortable than I thought I would be. There were 3 other parents (another single mom and a married couple) I kinda stuck with and they were a mess! Esp. the father of this little girl! There are no words! LOL An interesting thing was that there were some things that I just could not id with. They were not redneck or nothing but I felt I would have been kinda bougie wanting to say that I was going to Riverdance and Annie around them. So I didn't. The strangest feeling I swear.
I brought a Wii yesterday! Wasn't really planning on it. Took my van to Wally world for a routine oil change and while Pooka and I was killing time she ran to the playable Nintendo DS to play. I watched her play for a minute than started looking at the Wii games behind the glass shelf. As my eyes scrolled on down I saw this box at the bottom chilling all by its lonesome. I didn't know what the box looked like so I got the attention of an employee....
"Is that a Wii?"
*she smiled probably laughing internally at my question* "Yesssssssssssssssssssssss"
"Can I have it?"
"Yesssssssssssssssss" she was funny.
I just so happen to have my credit card so we walked to the checkout and badda bing badda boom. I have a Wii. Pooka and I are very excited! I have not hooked it up yet but I will by the weekend. Pooka said at one of the centers she goes to that they have a Wii but the bigger kids are always on it so she never gets a chance to play. Well now she got one at home that she can play! YAY!
I have officially retired my credit card till I can pay the balance off. Between my "stimulus" check and my paycheck I should be able to cover my summer school cost without pulling out the plastic devil again! LOL
Speaking of school....why did I call Duke admissions to ask a general question and ended up talking to the chick for about half and hour. What makes it cool was I wasn't the one extending the convo. I called her at work and as my coworkers filed in they would say good morning and I would say it back. Then the admissions chick would say "oh do you have to go?" to which I'd quickly respond "no, every things fine". I mean the more positive time I can get with people connected to the program the better! What's even cooler is that I called the same person a few months ago to sort out some things and she remembers me! SWEET! She mentioned somethings that I mentioned to her months ago! Yeahhhhhhhhh baby! So anyways, she basically answered my question and then some which fortunately went the direction I want (at the moment).
I secured my A in Independent Study. So that's 2 down one more to go for the semester.
RIVERDANCE IS TOMORROW! YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! I am sure I'll give my 2 cent about it Wednesday!
