Freaky was right, I'm a non tv watching mutant! At the weekend job a coworker, a new staff that's training to work with me, and I were watching Real Housewife's of ATL and The Game. By the conversation you could tell that the other 2 knew all about these shows and by all the questions they could tell I didn't watch as often as they did! LOL! So as I got filled in, I learned that...how did my coworker put it? Oh yeah "all the black shows got cancelled because you (meaning me) didn't watch!" She said it jokingly and I laughed and told her that I didn't watch the white, hispanic or asian shows either so I'm fair! LOL!
Life is short. Folks say it all the time but I swear that every other day it feels like someone is passing on. The latest is my industrial rehabs vice presidents mother. She passed Friday morning from a battle she'd been fighting for awhile now.
My body finally started to tell me to let something go. This something was the volunteer work I used to do on Monday mornings. Once Pooka got back from summer vacation and I got back to running around with her, something had to go. I haven't been in like 2 or 3 weeks. I kinda miss it.
I love and hate that my mom is staying with me. The things that I hate are small, like her eating or letting Pooka eat the last of one of my favorite types of ice cream when I specifically brought everyone their own ice cream that they wanted just so they wouldn't touch mine! But everything else I can deal with.
I know I said it before, but taking care of things for my mom and Pooka is expensive! Mo told me to get a Sam's card and I just might do that. I want to see if I can get one of those free passes first though.
I learned how to braid hair with extra hair involved! For some reason I thought braiding with the extra hair would be difficult, but Pooka's hair came out great last night! I'm quite proud of myself.
I must let go of my pack rat ways. I cleaned my desk off at the house and it makes no sense how much paperwork I keep!
I have finally decided to give my room a black, white, and red gansta theme in my bedroom. I gotta find me a Scarface poster! Can't have a gansta room without a Scarface poster! LOL!
3 day weekends are not long enough. I did not learn this last week, it just got reinforced this weekend!
People will always find a reason to complain. What is the big deal about the president telling the kids to stay in school? Granted, I didn't read the speech that he is going to give so I don't know exactly what the speech is going to be about. But from what the media is saying, it's not going to be a "become a socialist" or "be a democrat when you get older" type thing. So what is the big issue?
Dry cleaning is expensive. I have to take Pooka's Tai Kwon Do uniform home every Friday to wash. I thought it would be a good idea to have it dry cleaned to help preserve the logo and other things on the uniform longer. When the chick told me how much it was I was shocked! $10.76 to dry clean a child's uniform top and bottom! *smh* This may not sound like a lot to you, but it does to me! LOL! My grand diva said that price sounds about right, but it still didn't make me feel better. Next week her uniform is going in the washing machine!
I want to start up a truth or dare game on the blog like some other bloggers did like a year or 2 ago. I wanted to play then but I didn't have a digital camera to take and post pics of the response. It's coming though. Just have not decided when.
Slim Shady just invited me to a fight party at her house in 2 weeks. It's going to be a kid friendly party. Half of me wants to go cuz her and her friends/cousins are STOOOOOPID so I know I'm going to be laughing and I've never been to a fight party. But.....the other half of me is telling me to stay away from that party. My gut says stay home. When is the Mayweather (sp) fight anyway? If it's on a weekend I'll be working anyway! Gotta look that up!
That loan/scholarship that I got from the state where you get a loan and if you work in the field you went to school for after graduation the loan is forgiven and it's a scholarship. Those folks are tripping! How about my father, his wife, and I fill out all the documents we are supposed to and mail them in. You can check to see what documents have been received and check your scholarship status online. Being me, I check this site everyday and will until every doc has been received and marked complete. I got this call last week from the master promissory note chick that tells me that my father's wife has to re notarize her sheet because she didn't put the date at the top!!!!!!!! WHAT!!!!!!! You won't process my money because of a date????? UGH! I shouldn't be surprised because at the state job we won't release money unless everything is intact, but still!!!!! That thing pissed me off! I called just about everyone in my phone just to bitch about it! LOL! I sent my father's wife another form to complete. She should get it today and hopefully she will send it off in the SASE I sent with it ASAP! The promissory note chick said that if she don't get it soon I'd have to wait until next year to get the money! UGHHHHHHHHHHHH!
It's school fund raiser time! At the state job the cheap and highly over priced catalogs have started to circulate! Pooka hasn't gotten her's yet but I'm sure she'll have hers before the months out! LOL! I try my best to buy something from each kid in hopes that the parents/grandparents will buy from Pooka. Key word is TRY! LOL! Anyways, I place my order with my coworker and I need to write a check since I don't carry cash. I ask her who I should make the check out to. She says she doesn't know and tells me to give her a check and she'd fill it out. It's not like I don't trust this particular coworker but HELL NAH!!!! I filled out everything except the pay to line and told her she can complete that line. Who the hell is going to give someone a blank check without the word VOID on it? LOL! She lost her mind thinking I'd give her a blank check! *smh*
