The Best Resignation letter ever...

So this has been making the rounds on the email circut and I think it is so funny that I have to post it here. No this is not me. No I don't know her.

Reportedly an actual letter of resignation from an employee at Zantex Computers, USA, to her boss, who apparently resigned very soon afterwards!

Dear Mr. Baker,

As a graduate of an institution of higher education, I have a few very basic expectations. Chief among these is that my direct superiors have an intellect that ranges above the common ground squirrel. After your consistent and annoying harassment of my coworkers and me during the commission of our duties, I can only surmise that you are one of the few true genetic wastes of our time.

Asking me, a network administrator, to explain every little nuance of everything I do each time you happen to stroll into my office is not only a waste of time, but also a waste of precious oxygen. I was hired because I know how to network computer systems, and you were apparently hired to provide amusement to myself and other employees, who watch you vainly attempt to understand the concept of "copy and paste" for the hundredth time.

You will never understand computers. Something as incredibly simple as binary still gives you too many options. You will also never understand why people hate you, but I am going to try and explain it to you, even though I am sure this will be just as effective as telling you what an IP is. Your shiny new iMac has more personality than you ever will.

You walk around the building all day, shiftlessly looking for fault in others. You have a sharp dressed useless look about you that may have worked for your interview, but now that you actually have responsibility, you pawn it off on overworked staff, hoping their talent will cover for your glaring ineptitude. In a world of managerial evolution, you are the blue-green algae that everyone else eats and laughs at. Managers like you are a sad proof of the Dilbert principle. Since this situation is unlikely to change without you getting a full frontal lobotomy reversal, I am forced to tender my resignation, however, I have a few parting thoughts.

1. When someone calls you in reference to employment, it is illegal for you to give me a bad recommendation. The most you can say to hurt me is "I prefer not to comment." I will have friends randomly call you over the next couple of years to keep you honest, because I know you would be unable to do it on your own.

2. I have all the passwords to every account on the system, and I know every password you have used for the last five years. If you decide to get cute, I am going to publish your "favorites list", which I conveniently saved when you made me "back up" your useless files. I do believe that terms like "Lolita" are not usually viewed favorably by the administration.

3. When you borrowed the digital camera to "take pictures of your Mother's birthday," you neglected to mention that you were going to take pictures of yourself in the mirror nude. Then you forgot to erase them like the techno-moron you really are.

Suffice it to say I have never seen such odd acts with a sauce bottle, but I assure you that those have been copied and kept in safe places pending the authoring of a glowing letter of recommendation. (Try to use a spell check please; I hate having to correct your mistakes.)

Thank you for your time, and I expect the letter of recommendation on my desk by 8:00 am tomorrow. One word of this to anybody, and all of your little twisted repugnant obsessions will be open to the public. Never f*** with your systems administrator.

Why? Because they know what you do with all that free time!

Wishing you a grand and glorious day,

A few fun things...

Does anyone out there have a boss like this one?

Some day I would love to get into one of these outfits and take out my aggression on some one in a way that could be pain free.

Why men don't ask for directions? Finally answered...

And the oldie but goodie....Pet of the week.

Lucky? No I don't think so...

In the last 72 hours everything has just started coming together for this missions trip to Jamaica. Some would call it luck but I believe it is God providing the way for His will to be completed in my life.

I told God I would be obedient and go on a missions trip but He would need to provide the finances for me to go. The day before the first installment of money was due with the application I had some people come through and donate the money to the cause.

Today I went down to the local county type building to obtain a copy of my Birth Certificate for the purpose of gathering the all important Passport. I walked in and after only 5 minutes ( a miracle in itself) walked out with my goal achieved. As I was leaving the building I ran into a fellow church member that happens to work in this building. After the usual pleasantries she asked why I was there. I explained in detail as she is a friend of mine. Get this...

Are you ready...

She pulled out her checkbook and wrote a substantial check toward the cost of the trip!

God is providing the money just like I knew He would. When I stepped out in obedience I knew He would provide the way for me to earn the money and put the people in my path to help me out.

I don't believe in luck. I believe in God and His blessings. I believe that He is providing this because He wants me in Jamaica at that time for His reasons. I believe I have a divine appointment.

I know that He will continue to provide until the cost of this trip is met. I believe between the ideas He has given to me and those around me and the people he is prompting to provide money to this cause I will be in Jamaica in November for Him.

My Superman RIP

I've posted the story before on why my Dad was Superman to us.

My sister has even posted on it her blog in her Father's Day post on June 16th.

Today it has been 7 years since we said goodbye.

Goodbye for now...I know I will see him in heaven.

One of the last days he was coherent and awake my Dad spoke of the lights and angels he could see around his hospital room.

My Dad would be happy that Mom and Beau are planning on a wedding. He wouldn't want her to sit in a chair and rock herself into eternity. They had the kind of love that few ever truly understand.

Rest in Peace Dad...

Sunday, June 25, 2006

Well... it is official

I signed up and put the down payment in place for the Jamaica Missions trip in November. There is no turning back now. Myself and 9 other ladies will be heading out in November for a week.

Now before you start thinking "Oh yeah Jamaica. That's not exactly a rough place to have a missions trip." I need to tell you that I don't think I will ever be anywhere near a beach. I will be up in a mountain at a children's home helping the existing missions staff. I THINK they have running water but I'm not sure. All I know is as an act of obedience I'm going. Well that and I need to get my Passport in line pretty quick.

I have been given a few good ideas on how to raise the rest of the money. AND I have had 3 more people tell me today that they will be making a contibution toward the cost of my trip. Yeah! To quote a friend, "This is a doable amount of money!"

Mom and Beau have promised not to plan the wedding for November while I'm gone.

On a side note I never realized HOW much I jiggle my legs until the backs of my knees became sunburned. And if one more person looks at me and says," Have you heard of sunscreen?" There may be a death. I can't state this any clearer.

I WAS IN THE SHADE FOR 90% OF THE DAY! When I was out in the sun it was for only maybe 10 minutes at a time before I retreated to the shade again.

Whew I feel better having cleared the air on that.

Saturday, June 24, 2006

Oh so tired....

So I attended the auction of Beau's property and some of his personal items as he and my Mom are going to marry and combine our lovely families.

Most of the items went way too cheap...Beau pulled the plug on few items because well... you should not be able to buy an upright freezer that is only a year or so old for $5.00...

Still counting on God for the other $900.00 I still need for the rest of the mission trip money. Not all tomorrow! But by the end of August.

I have proven once again that yes folks I CAN and DO burn in the shade. Even the backs of my knees are burnt this time. Because I had shades on at least my eyelids aren't burned this time.

I listened to the Kenny Chesney CD and yes...I do believe that I like it.

I am sure I will have much more to say in the morning about my day with Junior aka Squirrel on Crack boy.

A few thoughts ran through my head...

Patty reminded me about this site when she posted this about her brush with animal control. Did you go look?

I'll wait go ahead...

I had a few odd mental pictures about her neighbor who will be known in my mind as Mr. Cat Lover. One of which would be the view of Mr. Cat Lover's (who is reporting her dogs) window with his attack cat taking aim at her dogs.
I found it ironic that Isaiah 40:31 is the Bible verse at the side today. I think I just posted on
that a few days ago in reference to my friend Jane. I have been molting these last few days. I needed to be reminded that God will lift me up just like the eagles.

I am still waiting to see if I will have the money to go on the missions trip. The first installment is due on Sunday. Anyone feeling generous?

I'm linking another new blog at the side. She is a friend of mine who has been bitten by the blog bug too. So go visit Kim-Possible and encourage her to keep going.

Wow I do have quite a diverse group of friends don't I?

By the way I bought copy of Be as you are by Kenny Chesney. Haven't listened yet but I'm jumping on the bandwagon as well.

Thursday, June 22, 2006

I love these things!

I was always one of those people who when at the mall would go into the store that had these pictures...spend 30 seconds looking at it and "get" the picture. If you are not familar with this concept....
1. Pick a spot to look at the picture preferably close to the middle.
2. Relax your eyes.
3. Try to stare through the picture and let your eyes cross a little.
4. The picture should "pop out" so you can see it in 3D.

The above picture should "pop out" One4JC when you see it.

If you want to make your own you can go here to create it.

I have had a headache since Sunday afternoon. I asked to take tomorrow off work to sleep in and try to kick it.

I have heard from a couple of the people I sent letters of support to about the Jamaica trip. I hope to have the down payment on the trip by Sunday.

My cat doesn't like the new cat food. It makes her sick.

The scooter still has a flat tire. I have the new tube and the patched older one I just can't get it on the wheel.

I sent out several more resumes tonight. You wouldn't think it would be that hard to get a job with health insurance.

The new Superman movie comes out next week.

Sometimes when you give it everything you have it still isn't enough. Sometimes you are so emotionally drained that you have nothing left to give to anyone.

I can't wait to go to Heaven and see God face to face.

Is Clinton still in Washington?

I am still playing with my new tool but I found this on my site meter page and the question begs to be asked:
Is Clinton still in Washington? Someone from the DC part of Washington did a search for "didn't have a bra" and ended up on my site, TOO FUNNY!

Feel free to click on the image and enlarge it to read it more clearly.

Big decisions...

So I have a few decisions to make this week. I need to prepare the application and finalize the finances for the missions trip to Jamaica by Sunday. I know several of you that read this are people that pray. If you are so inclined please pray for the finances to come through for this trip if I am really suppose to be going.

Father's Day

To me when I think of Father's Day I think of Superman. I picture my Dad in the outfit here. I'll give you the condensed version.

My Dad had cancer. Round #2 to be exact of a different type of cancer. He fought hard to live. He spent the last 6 weeks of his life in a hospital fighting for his life. He even agreed to be put on a ventilator for "3 days only" to clear up his pneumonia. We postponed giving him his Father's day present by 2 days so that he wouldn't know how many days had passed. Ironic in hindsight...

As a family we were called in too many times to count in the middle of the night because "death is immanent". That phrase became important to us as a family because it meant that more than 2 people could be in the room with him in CICU. We needed to have a chaplain from the hospital come in and write up a special "contract" (as the staff called it) to outline exactly when and how long the family could be in the room with him. It also detailed the services that the hospital would provide to my Mom a pager (that worked inside the building) so we could get her to walk down to the cafeteria to eat, someone from PT to come up and make sure she got a massage 2x a week to help control her arthritis and other muscular issues since we couldn't get her to leave the hospital. The contract was signed by all 3 children, my Mom (who signed without knowing what it said because she was going to do what she wanted anyway at this point and didn't leave my Dad's side to participate in the negotiations), the Head Chaplain, the head of the nurses in this unit, the Head of Security and at least one of his many many doctors. We all (children) had to carry a copy with us and have one posted at the nurses station and in his room. We have always been a strong willed family.

So we gave him his Superman shirt and he would look up at it hanging in his room and roll his eyes at us because he thought we were nuts...but he smiled every time he looked at it.

And yes we buried our "suit and tie wearing" Dad in this T-shirt with the blue button down shirt slightly open to see the "S" bursting out!

My Dad changed. When I went to college I didn't really even like my Dad...he was mean. He got colon cancer my sophomore year in college and he changed. He called it his "reality check". He became a different person. This is the Dad I remember the most. He was the one that hugged me, told me he loved me and talked to me about God.

So when I think of Superman I think of my Dad. The 7 year anniversary of his death almost coincides with the release on Superman Return on the 28th.

I know Beau isn't trying to replace my Dad. He's not that type of man at all...It just makes me miss my Dad even more.

If my Dad was here Big Red either wouldn't be alive or he would have ample help to "pull his head out of his a$$" LOL

For more thoughts on my Dad you can check out Coffee's post it is titled Ok, the Father's Day post.

Coffee is alive...

Coffee is alive but a little loopy at this point!

After I received a phone call from Coffee (before the paramedics took her phone away) I ran to alert Mr. Manly and watch over Junior while he checked out the damage to the car and to her.

She is VERY LUCKY that she is not hurt much worse than she is hurt. I included the before picture of what her car should look like and you can click here to see what it looks like now on her post of My Plans Crashed literally.

I'm still working on my Father's Day's a tough one this year.

Water Day gone horribly wrong...

So I was off to work with the anticipation of enjoying a fun day outside spraying children with a hose, filling buckets of water and watching the little ones dance and cavort in the sprinklers for our first water day of the summer at school.

It started off well but then a bit of a water fight erupted between two of the teachers "supervising" the children. Soon I was the only dry teacher left standing...well not for long.

A BUCKET of water was literally poured over my head.
Well myself being in charge of the hose was not about to have this act go unpunished. Many buckets of water were thrown at each other, hoses were wrestled over and all 3 of the teacher were DRENCHED!

I looked like I had stood outside under a waterfall without an umbrella. Or maybe some poor soul caught at Sea World without the $10.00 Parkas they sell.

Crappy looks were given by the office folks when we responded that we did not have extra clothes with us. We begged and borrowed spare clothes from fellow teachers, dramatic play dress up clothes, the extra large shirts we use at lunch to protect the children's clothes on messy lunch days and even an extra shirt a Pastor had with him.

FUN? The jury is still out on that one...

My turn to vent now so click off if you don't want to hear it...

It's hard to have a good day when one is wearing a wet bra and underwear under the borrowed clothes. So I figure why not....I'll check some of the finances that Big Red was supposed to be taking care of that have my name attached in some way or another.

Yeah...the credit card...deep breath...Big Red has chosen to charge 2 tickets to Las Vegas for August. He had previously told me they were for winning a pool tournament and that he needed to play at the National tournament...but not to worry he would be reimbursed for the airfare by the league once he provided the receipt. As he said he was the only member of the 4 person (all male) team that had a credit card.

Yeah...Credit card....deep breath....I checked the online account today again and found that he has charged the 2 tickets and one is in the name of 20+ years friend! Or you can learn more here or here or here or maybe here or well you get the picture.

It just amazes me that he can stand in front of me and flat out lie to me. How can he lie to all those people at church and the pastors? I have no tolerance for people that lie. I don't have room in my life for the deceptiveness they bring to relationships.

I know I should be over this by now but I'm not. I think it is all part of the process. While I process and vent it all out I am actually healing.

He will probably be getting subpoenas soon for all the information he "can't find" or hasn't made copies of it yet. That will be interesting! I'm guessing he wants this over before he flies to Vegas with the 20+ years tramp in case he wants to visit a wedding chapel and be married by an Elvis look-a-like LOL

A new link

So I found this blog called Carrie On. It's fairly new and seems to be very real and honest blog so far. I will be adding it to my blogs of interest at the side in my links.

In other news Big Red has annoyed me once again...I know it comes as a complete shock right? I can't wait until this whole thing is just over...

And a few funny one liners to lighten my mood:

Forbidden fruits create many jams.

Don't let your worries get the
best of you; remember, Moses started
out as a basket case.

Some people are kind, polite, and sweet-spirited
until you try to sit in their pews.

Many folks want to serve God, but only as advisors.

The good Lord didn't create anything
without a purpose, but mosquitoes come close.

Oh the humanity!

So I think you might have read about my flat tire on the scooter issue on Coffee's blog under the title of

Yet the oddity continues . . .

Sigh...I miss my scooter! I was out driving around blowing off some steam to begin with and BAM! Flat tire.

I personally want to blame the city of Fort Wayne. The way I figure it if they agree to drop the ticket (A stupid parking too close to the corner ticket of which I was more than the required amount of space away from the corner) I will agree not to ask them to replace my tire.

Follow me here..

I remember driving through the intersection of Main and Fairfield where an abundance of sawdust-like material was spread over a prior accident that must have occurred. Less than 2 blocks later the scooter is out of commission over a flat tire.

So therefore the "shard of metal" plucked from my flat tire was the fault of the city!

So I am informed by the testosterone laden folks in my life that I need to replace the inner tube like thing so that I can continue to scoot about. I managed to find one available and a place open on I scurry off to purchase one.

As I'm being given instructions on how to install it a Friend's husband offers to just come over and do this job as it is "simple". He comes over and the children play at the neighbor's house with my supervision of course. Gets it all done and Presto!

The new tire leaks!

So after a consultation it is determined that I will be purchasing a few tire repair kits to fix the old tire and the new tire as well so I will now have a spare as well if all goes well.

So off I journey to the store to get the necessary parts.

Superman Returns

I'm not sure you have noticed but.....


Ok I am so excited about the stinkin' movie coming out that I can't stand it!

You can find the cast and crew here along with the movie trailer.

And you can find more movie info here and order movie posters.

Here is the Superman of the best that I have found.

Wow screen savers, backgrounds and more here.

And it goes without saying that I want this computer!

Well what about the Superman Museum? How could I forget that!

If you like the newer merchandise you can go to the Kryptonite site.

If you like the older stuff try this search on eBay. For a reality check sort them by Highest prices first.

Whew I feel better now...I never realized how many links I had on my computer to Superman stuff...Of course the most important is the posts that my sister and I had on what Superman means to us and why we associate him with our Dad...but alas half of those posts are gone..maybe another day for that.

A little reflection

Do you remember Jane from this post?

Well I wanted to let her know how much I appreciate her so I wrote this today:

A long time ago during a rough point in my life I was struggling to get out of bed. My skin had even turned a shade of green from the sheets that I had laid on for over a week. I was having difficulty accepting help from anyone because I was too independent. I was wallowing and could see no way out. You explained to me Isaiah 40:28-31

28 Do you not know?
Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and his understanding no one can fathom.

29 He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.

30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;

31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

You then went on to explain the life of an eagle. How when an eagle molts and loses its feathers it depends on the other eagles to help it survive.

The molting eagle ends up in a valley unable to fly or hunt for itself. The other eagles come by and drop food to this eagle so that it will survive thus sustaining it. Once this eagle is strong again it continues the process in helping out the other eagles by reversing the roles.

You explained what I couldn't put words to. I was molting. I needed to allow others to come along side of me and help me walk out this part of my life. I believe this was my first introduction to the "Titus Principle". ****

I have had peaks and valleys. I have experienced death and life, sorrow and grief, happiness and joy. I have since found myself being in the position of both eagles. I continue to molt and soar in different seasons of my life.

I recall this story you told me only because I want you to know that what you do matters. As I am coming out of a molting phase I want to thank you for allowing God to work through you and thank you for teaching me that it's ok to molt. Thank you for utilizing the gifts God has given you.

**** The Titus principle is found in Titus 2:1-6. It involves bringing along those younger in the faith than yourself. To help them and not hinder them.

Someday I'll run this off and give it to Jane. Someday hopefully when she needs the encouragement she will be able to reread it and know that she is working in God's plan.

I am feeling stronger...

I hadn't realized how much stronger I am as a person...OK not the kind of strength pictured but emotionally stronger.

So I went to the northern counties to attend the annual "town wide" garage sale. Now this entails about 100-150 sales spread across the town with a population that only swells to about 8,000 people in the summer because there is a lake. Sometimes you find good deals sometimes not. Today I did and Coffee will be happy once Mom relinquishes her hold on the goodies purchased for Coffee and Junior.

Anyway back to this stronger thing...

Our last stop is to a sale of which my Mom had some interest is a civic type organization that my Madre belongs to at the moment. So we are sitting, talking with some friends of hers, enjoying the food that is being sold and someone new pipes in and asks Mom about her participation level. Same as every year no changes at all...She helps price and set up others do the manning of the spot and tear down.

No change there...

But a crappy look is given behind my Mom's back and two women (note I didn't call them ladies) scoot into the kitchen just inside the door not 15 feet from where we are sitting. In this room are about 5 other people as well.

One proceeds to speak very loudly, obnoxiously and just plain rudely about my Mom. I am not pleased as I can hear every word being said. I look at dear ol' Mom and explain the situation and tell her I'm going to take care of it.

I enter the house (small town atmospheres enable people to do this without being shot or maced) and say, "Hi I'm One4JC, (Mom's) daughter. Could you try not to talk loudly enough so that everyone can hear as you are so rudely discussing my Mom."


She shoots back with, "I was just repeating what happened!"

I say, "She (meaning the lady she was complaning to) was out there. No need to recap. Your tone is rude and I see no need for you to be rude about it so just stop it. Thanks a lot." I say with a smile and I walked back to the garage.

I informed Mom of the exchange and she tried not to laugh...I guess everyone is afraid to stand up to this lady because she is SO rude and talks behind everyone's back.

We discussed it on the way home and told her that if she gets any crap about it tell them that she isn't responsible for the things I say (as I am an adult) and if they have issues with it have them call me.

Now back to the point...

Six months ago I can't say that I would have walked up to this lady and did this. I KNOW a year ago I would have shrunk back and said sorry Mom your on your own.

I feel stronger because I am getting stronger. YEAH for me!

Borrowed from an email...


1) Zero Gravity

When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ball-point pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat this problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 million developing a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside-down, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to over 300 C. The Russians used a pencil. Your taxes are due again--enjoy paying them.

2) Our Constitution

They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq. Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, and it's worked for over 200 years. And, we're not using it anymore.

3) Ten Commandments

The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments in a Courthouse is that you cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians It creates a hostile work environment.

Three thoughts for the day. Have a good one.

That tag that I've been meaning to do....


The first player of this game starts with the "6 weird things/habits about themselves" and people who get tagged need to write a blog of their six weird habits/things, as well as state the rules clearly (copy/paste works). In the end, you need to choose six people to be tagged and list their names. Don't forget to leave a comment for them stating they're tagged and that they need to read yours...

1. I am so white I am almost transparent. You can clearly see the veins under my skin on my arms. I am so white that I can burn outside in the sun within 30 minutes on a sunny day. Of course I don't tan out and turn that nice golden brown you see people in the summer doing...Oh no I got from red right back to white!

2. I work with children and serve breakfast to them every morning in the classroom. I have noticed that when I use the tongs to serve the fruit pieces I MUST click them together 2 times between grabbing additional pieces of fruit to serve. I know I know odd...

3. I really really like to watch those stupid crime shows like City Confidential, American Justice, FBI Files and the New Detectives. I am fascinated to say the least.

4. I was young when Princess Di married Prince Charles. It happened on a Saturday morning and I was up to watch the event. I wasn't up for the event. I was up to watch cartoons before the crack of dawn. I actually cried when I heard the news that she had been killed in the auto accident. I never really followed her life aside from these events. Sure I heard news clips now and then but I didn't go out of my way to learn things about her and her life. I recorded the funeral as it was broadcast here in the US and also strangely awoke at 3 am to watch it as well. Somehow these events that happened years apart have left a very big impression on me.

5. If I had to I could live on Mashed Potatoes and milk. I eat Mashed Potatoes 4-5 times a week and I actually have to limit myself to a set amount of milk each day. When I was a child I drank an entire gallon in one day and got in a lot of trouble for doing so.

6.I always have a koosh ball, a stress ball or some other toy in my purse. I don't sit still well at all. As an adult I have learned how to occupy my hands when I have to be still for a long time so that I am not too distarcting. If I was a child today I KNOW that I would be medicated.

Tag 6 people you must be kidding! Last time I tagged people there was public outcry, protesting and....ok well people just weren't happy about it...If you want to do it leave me a note so I can check it out...

Observations on the web

I have been surfing these last few weeks and I have found several really funny things. These sites and places actually made me chuckle:

How to know when you are getting old. Some of these rang a little too true for me.

Crouching Mommy, Hidden laundry has a wonderful post on the things that little ones say in tense situations.

Despite the language in this Fireman Post from She just walks around with is HILARIOUS! Complete with diagrams and pictures...

Oh and lest I forget the Sound of Music... 'Nuff said.

I hope you enjoyed them as much as I did!

Blatant honesty coming....

You know being faithful kind of stinks right now. I am still married in God's eyes and legally for that matter.

I take the Bible very seriously. I think that is a given to anyone who has read this blog for very long.

That being said....

I REALLY miss that aspect of my marriage!

BUT when I made a choice to live my life for God I decided that I would follow Him in every aspect...including only having sex within a marriage.


I know what you might be thinking.

Yes I know I'm still married but who knows what I could possibly catch from Big Red if I went that route.

I know there is nothing I can do about this. I'm just whining.

What a day...

I accomplished a lot today but was amazingly able to relax at the same time. I was able to do several loads of laundry, work on the blankets I'm selling for the missions trip, clean up around the house and still play on the computer!

I was able to continue the never ending job search. I just want to be able to live on my own and have medical insurance. Is that really too much to ask? With this whole APS thing I don't think I should be without insurance. After the insurance was done covering the last ER visit I still owe over $600.00! Without insurance I can't even imagine.

On a good note I have managed to avoid Big Red for just over a week now! And almost all of the utilities are in his name by now or shut off and he's sitting in the dark... A few more notarized letters and all will be settled on that front.

The only thing I missed doing today was taking a spin on the scooter. But there is always tomorrow....

Pat Robinson

Now I know that he has blamed the Hurricanes, Tsunami's etc. on God "settling things" and pointing firmly to the book of Revelations...

What do you suppose he will have to say about this?

Will the headline of

"Learjet registered to Pat Robertson crashes"

be attributed to an act of God as well? Will this be God "settling things" with good old Pat for presuming to know what God's plan is for the world? Or will this just be a "tragic accident" because the appropriate spin can't be found for Pat?

So I borrowed...

I borrowed a few quiz type things from Coffee and found a few fun things on my own to share:

How You Life Your Life

You have a good sense of self control and hate to show weakness.
You're laid back and chill, but sometimes you care too much about what others think.
You tend to have one best friend you hang with, as opposed to many acquaintances.
You tend to dream big, but you worry that your dreams aren't attainable.
How Do You Live Your Life?

You Were a Fox

A good observer, you often watch others while remaining unseen.
Cunning and courageous, you also have a gentle side.

Can you tell the difference between a computer programmer and a serial killer?

And if any of these things make you nostalgic or homesick in any way you might be a redneck...

The reality sets in...

After several failed attempts to put Beau's children and my Mom's children together a few things have been made clear.

1. The schedule can be changed at any time with or without notice being given to all people involved to benefit the schedule of Beau's children.
For example: I was preparing to walk out the door on Memorial Day to head to the required destination for the "meet and greet" and I called to see if anything was needed before I headed out on the 1 hour drive to the lake. I found out that it was a "meet and greet" which I hadn't known AND that the time had been changed by 2+ hours.

2. My Mom is not "firing on all cylinders right now". She says she has done things that she hasn't. She says that she has told both Coffee and myself things that neither of us have heard.

3. I think that I am about to be put up for adoption. I feel that Beau's kids are taking priority over me. That may seem selfish and I know that I have complained for months about how much I was ready for her to move. BUT I didn't think that it would mean her cutting almost all contact except for when it fits her dance card and Beau's children.

I don't know maybe I am just moody right now...tired and temperamental..that's me.
