Doctors......YUCK

I had a doctors appointment today and it was not a pleasant one. Actually I think I have the same opinion about doctors as I do law enforcement (excluding a couple of friends that are in law enforcement)........ALL Y'ALL CAN JUST KISS MY ASS!! I am a very bitter person and don't like speeding tickets or doctors appointments and that is all these two groups seems to bother me for. As stated in the title I just feel really unsociable so that is all I will post for today.

Ever Have One of Those Days?

For the past couple of days I have just had that sorry attitude about everything. I just don't even like myself sometimes. Don't know why or how to make it better. It eventually fixes itself all on it's own but I just hate feeling this way.

Hello Again.........................


My significant other asked me the other day "Why don't you write in your blog anymore?" And I don't think I honestly remember why. I have been so busy lately at work and elsewhere that I had just quit so here is what has been going on since I quit.....

In July I took a fabulous vacation to San Diego with one of my BEST friends to see another one of my BEST friends that is stationed there.

I really do believe that San Diego is one of the most beautiful places in July. The sky was always clear and sunny, the temp was always comfortable, and of course the company couldn't be beat.


These are my two oldest friends from school Tonya and Heather. It seems strange that after all these years all three of us are not married, have no children, and even though we are across the country (sometimes across the globe) from each other we keep in touch better than I do with people I went to school with that live just next door. I am truly blessed to have them in my life.

To save the boredom of telling everything we did I will make this long story short......we did the usual....went site seeing, we ate, we drank, and we partied. I had a wonderful time but was glad to be home (not to mention that we missed our flight out of SD and had to make other arrangements just to get home on that day).


On to August............

Needless to say, anyone who knows me knows that this was not a good month for me. One of my other friends was shot in his own house by his wife's boyfriend which led to him being in ICU for 7 weeks and then in a hospital room for 3 weeks totaling 71 days in the hospital. How messed up is that?! To save from getting myself worked up over that again I will spare the details on that. I am just so thankful that he is doing well now. He has survived and progressed more than anyone thought he would.


September..................

We had a fundraiser for the above mentioned friend of mine. Chicken plates for over 1500 people is not as easy as it sounds. But through the trials and tribulations of a day from HELL, we survived each other and it was a complete success.



We also had someone donate a pair of Talladega tickets for a raffle. The winner had decided he couldn't go so he gave them to Tracie and I and wouldn't you know it, We had a BLAST (as usual).






October..............




October was filled with spending a lot of time with "The Circle of Friends" aka "TCF". We knew that our latest addition and founder of the "TCF" title was going to be leaving soon so we tried to make his last few days as eventful as possible. We spent lots of time at The Heifer, The Moose Lodge, and last but definitely not least The Living Room. The Living Room is now a social hang-out that we, "TCF", have been working on for a couple of months. We are converting a shop/storage space into party central. Grab you a case of beer on your way here and get ready to have a blast.

The rules of The Living Room are as follows...

  1. Do not buy anything for The Living Room. All items must be donated.
  2. No fighting in The Living Room. You must go out into The Yard to have any confrontations.
  3. There will be no "bitching" about anything in, around, related or unrelated to The Living Room. As a matter of fact if all you can do is "bitch" you might as well just shut the hell up.

    Other than the above mentioned rules all you have to do is have fun.

    This a view of a few of the founders of The Living Room. Several of the fine outstanding members of the community huh?! HEHEHE

FINALLY November.............

I had a surprise birthday party last Thursday at HoJo's. I was completely surprised and had a blast. Thanks to Tracie and Karl I had a wonderful night. I am very blessed to have them in my life along with all of my friends. I don't think anyone could have friends any better than mine. I am especially grateful for Karl. I know that I am not the easiest person to be with and he must have "the patience of Job". He has been so wonderful to me and I know I don't deserve it. I don't know what I would do without him.

Yeah, Yeah, Yeah........


I haven't posted anything in 2 weeks now cause it's just been a shitty couple of weeks to be blunt about it. Work sucks (yes both jobs) and when I have time off I am too tired to enjoy any of it. I actually did get to enjoy some time last weekend. Some friends and I got out of town for a while which was pretty nice. We basically didn't have anything to do but sit around and drink a little and fish. There was a little bit of drama and a few mosquitoes we had to deal with but not enough to complain about. I really hated having to come back Monday.

Last week was just plain NASTY! I don't know any better word to describe it. The whole week at work was one that I know I couldn't survive again without a shadow of a doubt. I was not that stressed but some of the co-workers that I have were either gonna blow a fuse or blow up. It was like walking around a "Land Mine" (proper noun). By the time Friday got here (besides being terribly hung over) I was in a fairly good mood but I finally decided that it would obviously be better if I just shut up since everything I said got my head bit off or offended someone else without reason. Just because someone is in a bad mood doesn't mean they have to make everyone else miserable.



Friday night I went out with a couple of friends of mine and blew off some steam which was nice. Saturday was pretty uneventful. Sunday was a total waste of time and money but still it later got better. Sometimes I forget how much fun it is to be the sober one and just sit back and watch the drunk(s). It is also good to return the favor and do the nursing for those who have nursed you in the past.

Guess what?! It's Monday again. It seems to be better than last week but you never know how the day/week will eventually turn out.

WEEKEND FUN

My weekend started bright and early Saturday morning. I got up at 7:30 and began cooking on the grill for a birthday party later that evening. I was quite proud of myself. I have never cooked on the grill before and I actually didn't do half bad nor did I burn the house down. Around 1:00 I hauled ass down to H'burg to visit a friend in the hospital. She was doing very well which took a tremendous load off my mind. I visited with her till 5 and hauled ass back. That's when the real fun began. I went and "kidnapped" a friend from work for her surprise birthday party. After I finally convinced her that I had everything covered for work, we went to the party. The night started off pretty calm and relaxed. Everyone outside eating, drinking, and socializing (the few that we still socialize with). One of her gifts was a bottle of "Jose Cuervo Black". When chilled it is a extremely smooth drink (almost too smooth). It was not one of our best ideas to drink that along with all the beer we were drinking but nobody ever said we were the brightest people in the world.


It was not one of our best ideas to drink that along with all the beer we were consuming, but nobody ever said were the the brightest people in the world. We then preceded to start a beer fight in the parking lot. I don't think everyone appreciated the shower of Coors Light or But Light that we were giving but we had a blast. After several changes of clothes, a lot more consumption of alcoholic beverages, and just plain ol' "stupid fun" we finally got to bed about 4-ish.

Sunday morning wasn't good at all. Trying to move furniture with that big of a hangover is not a good combination. Actually my friend and I didn't move much, thanks to the guys we just sat around and watched in misery. That afternoon was pretty nice though. After trying to choke down a few beers and then moving on to Vodka and sprite to cure my hangover, I finally got my headache to go away and went fishing (again my friend and I just watching the guys). Getting out in the peacefulness of the country was quite nice. In actuality the weekend was quite nice overall. Good quality time with people you care about seems hard to come by these days but I got a good bit this weekend.

Friday, Friday




Another week gone and it has been a long time coming. Have I mentioned how much I hate the first of the month?? This has been one of the hardest weeks I have had in I don't remember when. All this stress at work, stress at home, stress in my so called "social life" is going to be the death of me. I have actually slept though. The past two nights have been so wonderful. I didn't sleep that long but I rested. I had forgotten how lovely rest can be.

And the truth shall set you free...........or not!!!!

Why is it that some people, myself included and very guilty, only need a few drinks to open their big mouths and say things that pop into the mind no matter what the consequences. It is almost like as soon as you take one sip, the filter switch is OFF. On the other hand, why is it so hard to be honest about other things that are more personal, inebriated or not? At the beginning of my activities last night, I began sipping a shot of tequila and Diet Pepsi. Twenty minutes later, the truth started slipping out. The more I sipped, the more it slipped. By the time I was about ready to leave several truths were spoken. Not that I am ashamed of anything I said but that doesn't mean all of it should have been said. A couple of hours later after I had drank a lot more straight Diet Pepsi, my drunkenness subsided and my filter returned. Actually in this instance the filter was not one to keep me from saying anything stupid necessarily, but to keep me from saying something that would expose myself emotionally. That is something I am intent on not doing. Luckily my logical side stepped in which made me realize how stubborn I was being. As uncomfortable and irritating as it was being honest about myself I felt more relaxed than I had felt all evening. How ironic!

The sign of the day...........
