I think I am a work-a-holic. Well, no...maybe I just like getting decent looking checks and to make that happen I need to be at somebodies job for a good amount of time.
I was supposed to work a full day at the state job today. Was kinda looking forward to the digits on that check next Friday. But Pooka came down with a tummy ache and needed to rest. Her health is more important than anything. Silver lining: if she wakes up at a decent hour (it's 11:30 and she is still out like a light) I can take her to work with me still making a few hours and the $$$ I paid to have Pooka in camp today can get applied to her care during the school year! YAY!
I don't go back to school for 3 weeks! I have a loose plan of what I will be doing! My step mothers family goes to Myrtle Beach for a week every summer. It's their tradition. They are driving there Monday and me and mine plan to meet them there the same day. My birthday party is the Sunday before so the time the party ends will determine what time we leave on Monday! LOL! I am not sure if I can be around my father for an entire week so at the moment I am thinking I may bring it on back to NC on Wednesday. We will see.
For good reason, my step mother thinks my father is cheating on her. I am not surprised. I wonder if she ever asked him why his first two marriages didn't work out. Knowing him he would have lied anyway. *shrug* My father is an asshole and doesn't deserve my step mother. I told her so. She told me that my sister (from his second marriage) told her the same thing! *sigh*.
After I get back from the beach I plan to work and spend time at the buck fiddy movie theater. There are a few movies that Pooka, Snookums, and I haven't seen that are playing so I can see a few trips there in my future. I haven't seen my mom since her surgery so I might drive up to say hi next weekend. Which will serve double purpose because Pooka's dad wants to hang out with her next weekend. Sidenote: Babydaddy stopped by my grandmothers job this week, just to say hi. Weird! LOL! When I asked him why he did that he just said he was in the area and thought it would be a nice thing to do. I don't buy that 100% but whatever.
The weekend after that is my biannual family reunion. Thankfully this year it is in Raleigh and less than 5 miles from my place! I am not really in a family reunion mode, but I paid for it so I'm going! :-)
The last week of my vacation I am planning to work a full 40hr week. With all the traveling and Pooka's next school year coming up fast I need to have my $$$ right to take care of everything. Fun stuff! One good thing is that I already had most of the stuff on Pooka's school supply list from last year! YAY!
In other news: my family and friends are not having great times in their lives. I was telling Snookums last night that I wish I could find a big, bright, pink happy pill with sparkles on it and have everyone take a piece of it. The last couple of weeks I have heard my share of Lifetime network and Discovery Health type stories and I am just about filled to capacity. It's weird because I am no where close to being a psychiatrist, psychologist, or counselor so I never have the right words to say when they drop their verbal load. All I do is provide a shoulder, a hug, say "Damn that sucks", and "I couldn't imagine what that's like". My aunt called me up last night to dump and I had to cut her short and told her that everyone has a story that sucks right about now and we all just have to pull our grown folks underwear up and do what we can to make it through. I hope she didn't get offended. I just couldn't listen to anymore stories right then. Maybe I will call her and see how things are going today. *shrug*
Since I probably will not blog again till after the birthday. I will use this part of my blog to celebrate me! :-D
This is a picture of a picture of me in the hospital...
...and this is me almost 30 years later!
I haven't loss my awesomeness or my cuteness if I do say so myself! *cheese*
