You Missed Me & You KNOW It.

They remembered their lunches!

Why yes. I do know it’s over a week later. I have been *mad* busy. =D

I finished my classes (well, 3 of the 4). And I’d like to say that I passed all of them and even got some A’s! I have an astronomy (why did I type astrology first?) class for the rest of the summer. Seems to be much of a group effort. Which I hate…but…whatever.

So, the reason I haven’t blogged (like I usually blog everyday) is because I was finishing up school and I’ve been totally engrossed in the Jessie Marie Davis case. I think mostly because it’s so close to home, but also because lately, I’ve been reading/hearing so much about men killing their wives/gf’s and kids. I cannot wrap my brain around this. I mean…I tried to think of all the possible reasons I could want to kill a spouse or SO and I cannot come up with one reason.  None. It’s become dangerous to be involved in a relationships these days. You think you know someone…next thing you know….”schlick”….<—that was me doing the knife across the neck thing. lol Anyway, who knows if these people show signs of “crazy” before the snap. Perhaps they showed signs that we don’t even know about. But it’s scary to think that your “love” appears totally normal and then out of the blue…well…you know. I feel so horrible for all those involved, especially little Blake. To think he watched his father murder his mother…my goodness. =(

So, I’ve been reading and posting on a message board about the case. Even neglecting my own forum.

Today the kids acted so crazy (d/c). I’m gonna blame it on the heat b/c it’s so very hot. I had the air conditioner running at 8 am, which is a no-no for me. I never turn it on before noon. lol I’m not cheap. I’m frugal. =)

One of my exes called me today. I was a bit caught off guard and since I had screaming kids in the back I told him I’d call him back when all the kids were gone (d/c – mine never leave) to see what he wanted. I haven’t called him back. I can’t imagine what he wants, but b/c of other calls, I get the feeling he might be trying to “move in” on me. If you get my drift. *wink, wink* I loved his friendship…but um…..NO!

Tonight I plan to eat my dinner (which I haven’t had yet), work-out a little bit (just a little b/c I wasn’t feeling so hot about an hour ago), work on these discovery questions for a lawsuit I’m dealing with =/, read a little of my assignment and hit the HAY!  Such an exciting life I lead!!

Happy Father’s Day.

Today is Father’s Day. I’ll be calling my dad and Ray. But that’s about it. We have no plans, but I think Ray wants to get the kids.

More would have been planned but I’m so far behind in assignments that I need much of the next week or so to catch up. I took 4 courses this semester. 2 of them were self-paced PC courses. Hardware and programming. Two things I excel in. So, I put it off and put it off and put it off and now the summer semester (session I) ends this Friday. That means 3 of my classes end. 2 of those are the PC courses. LOL. So um, yea…I’m playing catch-up. The hardware course is going along smoothly, but the programming course was giving me some issues because I couldn’t get Visual Basic (the version I have) to install correctly on my 64-bit Vista PC. UGH! After hours of trying to figure out the issue, I gave up and got a new installation (trial) from Microsoft. Of course it’s different from the version I’m used to, so it’s slowing me down. *sigh*

I want to try to get a lot of it done today, but I do need to take time to get this house in order because the kids (daycare) will be back tomorrow. I’m excited b/c I sent out a notice Friday that I’ll no longer be serving lunch. The kids will have to bring their own. It was becoming insane because one kid has allergies to tomatoes, oranges, and strawberries. And he can’t have fish or peanut butter (peanuts is understandable). So, that cut out a lot of meals! I serve a lot of oranges and strawberries. ha! And once I started paying attention to labels b/c of his allergies, I noticed I was serving a lot of things with tomatoes or tomato flakes in it. His mom was supposed to bring an alternative on days he couldn’t eat what I served. She hasn’t. So each time I’d give him a Gerber Toddler meal and those things cost close to 3 bucks each. They only pay 5 bucks a week for lunch! Ugh. Then the other two kids I watch don’t have allergies, but their parents won’t let them eat pork, beef, or have milk (they have to have soy milk) and the kids don’t like cheese. I was totally running out of menu ideas. My kids don’t care if they eat peanut butter and bananas every day. lol. I’m just hoping everyone remembers their lunch tomorrow. I’m sending out a reminder email this evening.
