I won’t start this post by saying, OMG, I haven’t blogged in months! I think you can see that already. I’ll just jump right in like I’ve been here every day. =)
Today is Monday and I hate Mondays. But, I hate this Monday even more. This week is the last week that I will have 2 of my daycare kids full-time. They’ll be going down to 1 day a week, which is basically nothing. NOTHING! Dear Internets, this is cutting my already mediocre income in half. HALF! I’m trying not to stress it because, amazingly, I have gotten 4 emails and 1 call about potential kids. Really odd how that happens seeing as though before last week I was barely getting calls. *hmmmm* So, I’m going to enjoy this week and then PANIC LIKE HELL on Saturday and Sunday.
Anyway, there’s so much going on in my life (some good…some bad) and I don’t have much time right now (or desire) to get into it. I did want to pop in and say I AM ALIVE! Still doing daycare, still homeschooling…and still…well…not much has changed (sadly). Hopefully I can remember to login and share what happens in my world at least once a week. (meh)
My girls woke up at 8 AM. I let them look at what was in their stockings, then they woke their brother to begin the gift opening. Everyone got what they wanted. I told them they were only getting a couple gifts each, so they were pleasantly surprised to see more. We spent much of the day being lazy, then playing High School Musical Sing It and Mario Galaxy on the Wii. They got a total of 10 new games for the Wii!
This year, I tried again to keep up with the mess (check last year’s post), but failed. I have an excuse this time. A real one. I went out to Walgreens last night to grab some milk, cereal and a few stocking stuffers. I was pushing the little cart to my car. The cart hit a small hole in the ground and tilted forward, as if it was going to turn over. The bar near the back wheels came up and my shins rammed into it. I swear I broke my leg. I heard a cracking sound. There was blood. I got home and could barely walk up the stairs. The pain just got worse and worse. I was in so much pain I was shivering. I thought I was going to pass out. The skin was split and my leg was swollen. I figured since it was Christmas Eve, I’d just wait it out. See if it got worse today before seeing a doc. I was so out of it last night that Ray had to make the Christmas cookies and put the movie on for the kids (our Christmas Eve tradition). I did participate when they opened their Christmas Eve jammies though. I took pain meds and passed out on the couch. Later on, I felt much, much better! My leg was still in pain, but the swelling wasn’t as bad and I wasn’t shivering. I managed to play Santa by hopping around (at 4am =/ ). Certain positions hurt my leg, but I can pretty much walk on it. When I showered I almost screamed because the water hitting the wound was a bit painful. But I’m good. I think.
So, I am supposed to have tomorrow off. I take care of one child during the week. (Used to be two, but that’s a long story). I’ve been caring for him for a year and a half. Anyway, I told his mom Friday, if she couldn’t find someone, to let me know b/c I might be able to take him on Wed. Well, she sends me a text. Tonight. At almost 10pm. Why? When I didn’t hear from her, I figured she found someone. I’m supposed to be out with my mom tomorrow…so um. I’m not sure what this kid’s mom is going to do with him. I feel bad, but then again…she should have given me more notice than THAT.
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!!
