I don't remember which Stephen King book SSDD is from. I don't even believe I was hooked on Stephen King books at one point in my life. I should really pick up a book soon!
Anywho, I have avoided the blog world long enough. No excuses, just didn't feel like sitting down and typing anything really. *shrug*
Tomorrow will make an official week that Pooka has been in MD with my mom. Everyone keeps asking me if I miss her. Hmmmmm it hasn't set in yet. I mean the first night at home totally alone sorta scared me a tad, especially when I heard a noise and couldn't automatically think it's Pooka in her room. But I got over it quick. As I type she is at the mall with her father. YAY! I like knowing she's doing things I didn't get to do with my father. I got her report card in the mail yesterday and she is officially a 3rd grader! YAY! A few of her grades went up (including math, thank you Jesus) some stayed the same and her social studies went down. I am cool with it because the overall card was good. Along with the card I got her supply list for next year. I think I will knock it out next weekend. Why wait for tax free weekend?
Has anyone had lupini beans before? If so what do they taste like? I brought some and started the soaking process *sigh* From what I've read online they are worth the wait and time to prepare. We'll see.
Since Pooka started her vacation I have been pretty much all about me. Working, working out, eating and sleeping. I am feeling pretty good but most will think I am ignoring them because I have been to myself doing my own thing lately.
My supervisor at my industrial rehab job is pregnant. She found out from her doctor this morning. I, along with another coworker, told her she needed to piss on the stick 2 daggone weeks ago when she was having multiple symptoms. *smh*
I am loving the fact that my career choice is in demand. This week I took the very last part of my NCI training for my weekend job. One day I had on my NCCU shirt. One of the trainers asked me if I went there then asked me the basic questions that follow (when you graduate, what was your major, etc....) while the first trainer was asking me stuff the second trainer said that she knew I was glad I was done with school. To that I told I was glad I graduated, but I was going back in January. She asked the normal questions (where you going, what for, etc....) and when I answered she said that they'd wait for me. I started to laugh and with a straight face she said she was serious! WHAT! Many people in the field have told me that once I pass the board everything is smooth sailing and I am continuously learning that they are right! YAY!
Next month is my birthday month. I'll be 29 years old! Why is that not really clicking with me? I won't be going out of the country like I told myself I would around my birthday last year, but I will make it my business to enjoy myself anyways.
Why oh why has Pooka's paternal grandmother been texting me FORWARDS like nobodies business ever since she got my cell phone number? Hasn't anyone told her that I don't care for forwards in email or text message form unless they are really really good? I don't want that "it's beautiful sisters day so send this to 20 million sisters or you'll die" stuff! *sigh*
Call me dumb, but why are a lot of people pressed for the government to apologize for slavery. I don't understand.
I don't understand why TLC is trying to create buzz about Jon and Kate's announcement on Monday. Who gives a flying donkey.
Why was the media all over that Michigan man who swore out he was that baby stolen in NY back in the day? Now that it has been proven he not that kidnapped kid will he be invited to his real families family reunion? LOL!
I am slowly gaining an addiction to the card game Phase 10. I play it during the down times at the weekend job. It's so great I brought my own deck recently! Now if I can find Pick Up Stix it will be on a popping!
