Spring has sprung! It was very late, but the sun is shining, the windows are cracked, the kids are going stir crazy and family activity is wild. For Easter we spent the day with the in laws. We had a an Easter egg hunt, birthday cake, board games, and fun. All in all, my first weekend off in months…was perfect!
To top off my perfect weekend, Paetyn passed her hearing test fully on both sides yesterday!! The doctor recommended speech therapy and full time preschool come fall. I don’t really believe in preschool, Kae never went and she’s top of her class. My mother was a head start teacher and I taught preschool for 2 years. I know what needs to be worked on at home…I don’t need to pay $125 a week for her to learn her shapes and colors…and I won’t. I do understand that her being within a group of children can hemp her speak more…but so can activities at the library, family get togethers and community activities. I’m just glad to know,she won’t need surgery or tubes. Truthfully,she’s just stubborn. Since removing the wax that was too far back for cleaning, she has been pronouncing better. She’s only getting better.
This week I’m part time for work, I’m excited! We FINALLY fired the drug addict, the new girl did ok while i trained and the new guy did great as well. This is the best staff we’ve had in a long time. I pray it stays this way!
I hope every one had an amazing holiday, that your all enjoying beautiful sunshine, and that you’re all feeling blessed.
Well world, in one week we fired the two new people, hired two more, fired an old employee and I some how agreed to take over management before December. That’s a mouthful huh?!
Life has been in full force, like always! But this has been a very special week! My sweet, yet feisty baby girl turned 3! Monday was spent saying “its your day!” All day! The girls godmom saved me a trip to the store and came over with a big chocolate cake and some gifts. All, in all…the day was spent with family
As I whined before Sunday I was forced to pull a double at work. 945am until 1215am…I’m happy to announce I did not kill any customers! It actually wasn’t that bad and I only started to die an hour before it was close. My sales were even good. There’s one thing I’m really good at, sales. There’s also one thing I hate doing, sales. Working in retail is a very bipolar career. One rude customer can just ruin an entire shift!
Back to the two new employees. My boss is trusting me with training! This Friday I train the girl, next Friday I train the boy. Oh and for the first time since JUNE, I have the next two weekends off! Maybe that’s why I’m in such a great mood lately.
I’m still sleep deprived. Honestly, I don’t think anyone can train their bodies to wake up 445am, again at 7am and stay awake until after 2am for work. Some days I get it done, others I’m running around screaming at hubby to get up or he’s gonna be late and bribing kae to let me drive her to school, so I can get a half hour nap. All in all though, its getting done.
My Mom was sent home from her rehabilitation. She’s doing fine and is still in her brace. I have yet to see her, but we text here and there.
This weekend is Easter…and like always the bunny is slacking and will be doing last minute baskets -_- I really need to master procrastination and over come it lol…one step at a time!
As for now, my house has been neglected and I need work clothes for tonight.
Ohhh WordPress family, how I’ve missed you. I’d love to come back after over a week of silence with some of my witty charm…but sadly…I have none.
Remember my “jumpy jumpy Joy Joy” over being back at part time? They lied. I’m still at 40 hours a week…they are even forcing me to do a double Sunday. Let me repeat that, a DOUBLE -_- 9:45am until 12:15am. At any other job, this would be a walk in the park…at this job…its death in a box. Customers don’t start coming in until after 1pm. I predict a funeral and I’m stating it here for the interweb to remind my family….I love them and that wedding ring is to be made into earrings for both girls.
Aside from never sleeping and never seeing my family…I’m finally getting over some weird bug. For 2 weeks I was on death row. Everything sounded like Charlie Browns teacher, my sugar kept bottoming out, I was weak, dizzy, felt like I could hurl all day and couldn’t eat. It was amazing! I then passed it to Pae…who couldn’t eat and was very cranky! Some how it skipped kae and daddy…lucky little jerks!
Life has been pretty amazing. Family time is non-stop, kae is reading chapter books and pronouncing “big girl”words. Pae is still my little goof (can’t believe she’ll be 3 Monday,wah). This morning I warned her to put her pizza rolls on the counter so Miss.Kitty doesn’t get them…”No momma”…I then watch the cat steal a roll and run. Within 5 mins I’m getting a ticked off toddler. She stomps her little foot, places one hand on her hip and the other hand points at me “Bad momma, time out”. She refused to believe me! I got put in time out by a almost 3 year old! She’s in all the nahnahnadabooboo phase as she shakes get cute wittle booty at you, so that you chase her.
I love my family.
I’m beyond blessed.
I don’t know what I did right, to deserve the happiness that fills my life.
I know I’m currently slacking on my blog, in my defense I got annoyed! Seems WordPress was against me, and many others. I wasn’t informed of comments, replies or even emails of the blogs I follow! So to atlantamom thank you for the beautiful momma award! To the wishes to my mom, thanks…and for the encouraging words about my whining over working full time THANK YOU!!!! 😀
Not much is happening in my house hold out of the norm. Today I finished my last shift of full time (insert cheesey grin), Friday my husband was released back to work! Kae loved her book fair! She found a monster high chapter book that we’ve been working on and tomorrow Pae has her ear appointment!
I don’t really talk much about Pae whole ear thing on here but she’ll be 3 the 25th and still isn’t fully talking. So we’ve been told there’s a chance of needing tubes. We shall see tomorrow morning after her test. The girl can talk and is finally understandable with 80%, she has that typical excited toddler stutter and than she has her own language. Being her parent, I understand everything she’s saying 99% of the time. For us its just crazy, only because kae was speaking full sentences before she was 1….she still is always talking! Mainly I made the appointment to shut family up. Growing up the oldest of 3 kids.. The oldest tend to always talk for the youngest! So I’ve just been saying she’ll talk when she’s ready…she’s getting there.
For now though I’m going to get lost in my kindle. This series has sucked me in and refuses to let go…hopefully I can stay awake to enjoy it.
Ok, so my title is actually a lie…due to being here at work. I’m impatiently waiting for Thursday! I’ll be free from work for 2 days and the best part…this is my last full time week!!! You can’t see it but I have the biggest smile ever!!! Ok, I promise to lay off the exclamation marks and while I’m at it, I’ll step off cloud 9.
My post lately have been very dry and straight to the point. Today maybe I can actually type out life and who knows give a giggle or two.
We hired a newb at work, she’ll begin Monday. I haven’t met her yet, I will Monday afternoon thou. I’m a good judge of character…hopefully my intuition thinks she’ll be drama free and a good addition. Also, we had what looked like our windows shot during the week. Boss is declaring it was someone spinning out and happened to spit ice all over…I don’t know that I believe it. Why? Ohhh, because one “ice chunk” went thru so hard it damaged a video case! I guess either way, they well say whatever to keep customers and employees happy. I mean, who is afraid of ice holes!? I’ll let you be the judge…bet you’d choose ice too.
This week is a fun filled week for Kae at school. Monday is the book fair (she’s obsessed with reading, like her momma), Thursday her change collection is due to help raise money for the school library to get new books and Friday is her spring pictures. If you haven’t caught on yet…this week is expensive! Miss.Diva already had a book sneak peek and needs almost $20, her change bag is barely full and pictures are $44. I guess working part time again should scare me, haha. But who can deny her the fun? Lol
Friday is hubby doctor appointment. He’s still feeling what he calls “an air bubble” around his incision and it still hurts to bend or tighten his abs. I’m hoping the good ol’ doctor says suck it up buttercup and ships him back to work Monday. Mean wife I know, but he’s been out of work since January! Plus if I’m back to part time, we’ll need that lovely income. I know if he had his way he’d be a stay at home daddy and honestly I think the divas would ok this! They all have such a blast together and love him being around daily. The few times he’s actually left for “Man dates” they had withdraw.
I guess I can’t blame them, I remember moments like that with my Dad. In all honesty they are the only few memories I have. Soon after drugs and disappearing took over the family time. Im glad my girls will never have that empty feeling. I may say stuff and act like he does nothing, but he’s an amazing man. I guess I key my jealousy get the best of me at times. Let’s face it ladies, the men always have easy with the home life…don’t act like you’re not jealous at times.
I’m pretty sure zero is finally out of heat, thank goodness! She’s mommas baby but good grief she was a furnace! She’s become very jealous of my kindle lately and seems to always find ways to Katy on it as she attacks with kisses. She’s lucky she’s a cute mutt!
Aside from my life, I’m doing good. That feeling of depression has started to fade. The sun is out and shining with no snow for once and I’m excited to go home at 5. I miss the divas….and the hubby.
I also am going to show a picture of my moms disgusting neck. You’ve been warned. As for her, she’s still hating rehab from what she’s been posting online. We haven’t really talked. Evidently she’s allowed alcohol there, or she’s at least sneaking it. I have nothing positive to say about it, so I’ll just post a picture.
Makes me wanna hurl 😡 nasty, nasty, nasty.
Moving on! I’m currently reading the Argeneau Vampire series by Lynsay Sands. If you’ve read the Highlander Series by Karen Marie Moning, and like vampires, you’d love the series. If you like romance with suspense I highly recommend both series. I’m including links for book summaries!
the highlander -just an fyi book one made me wanna rename my husband Hawk and I was close to buying a kilt 😉
Well interweb I’ve made it a full year at work (for me that’s amazing, I have really bad job a.d.d.). An entire year of listening to men whine that their wives dress like men now, wives complaining their men lost the romance. A year of explaining ways to spice up your partner/yourself…a very long interesting year. My boss thanked me with a pizza party and Michigan helped me have an easy day with a huge blizzard.
Before I move fully off the work topic, I’m going to educate you ladies real quick. Listen up! Your husband lies to you. He does not like you walking around in sweats daily. He’s not thrilled that it looks like you robbed his closet. He does notice when you stop wearing make up or doing your hair. He secretly wishes he had the balls to tell you himself but he’s a male! Also, my male readers…your girls are not scared to try new things!!!
Moving on from the place consuming my life currently! Aside from that, my mother is now moved to rehab center. She’ll be there for 2+ weeks…from her few texts she’s over it and misses her boyfriend.
Life at home: hubby tried going back to work 2 weeks before his (hopefully) doctor release. He lasted a full shift and 2 hours of second shift…it was too much. He is currently back at home and waiting for his appointment Friday.
The divas are great though! Pae birthday is coming up and I guess it’s officially time to quit calling her my baby. On the 25th my baby will be 3 :(. The funny part is Kae class celebrates summer birthdays throughout the spring…her school “birthday” is the 26th! Which means I’ll have twice the cupcakes to make….this is exciting for her. Life is as good as it can get for all the chaos going on.
I hope everyone is doing great.
Well I’m still working full time and it shows no signs of stopping…wahh! I’ve been the right hand man at this company for majority of the year I’ve been here…more so with the new Guy. I don’t mind, I mean we need the money, but man these 40 hours of night shifts and attempting to not be a zombie in the morning are killing me. My days off are spent sleeping! This week I was suppose to be part time…yeah I got called in Tuesday! Only good news is I pulled up to “Now Hiring” signs in the window. He’s had enough of the trash employees and is going above the next in commands head to remove them. This is exciting! I’m constantly called in to cover their shifts, I’m stuck fixing their mistakes and I’m missing out on my kids while they drink and do drugs!
Now that Kaes in school, any week day shift means I see her as we go to the bus stop and as I pick her up from the bus stop 😦 I can’t stand it and I feel like she’s going to hold it over my head that im not around. I know she won’t, she understands daddy isn’t working and that in order to get fun stuff, I have too. But….it’s putting me into a real depression. I miss my family time Aside from work, all is the same here. Except for my mother. She’s been battling a “pinched nerve” for 6 weeks now. Well after a MRI tonight she was sent straight to the ER. She has to have an emergency neck surgery -_- She’s getting it first thing in the morning and it’s scary. She already had a failed back surgery that has scar tissue climbing from her butt crack to her shoulder blades. The Dr told her she’s lucky she’s not freaking paralyzed. -Emergency Corepectomy? With fusion. They are going thru the front of my neck AND back. I have to get two vertebrates removed that are broken and decayed. – That’s from her.
So now I have the stress of this to add to my daily work stress. Blah. I’m just praying it’s all ok and that everything will work out this time. Other than that I crafted cute owl earrings and ordered the sexiest purse ever and have been lost in reading! ❤ Hope everything is going good for you guys.
are they adorable! ❤
Seriously thee most amazing purse ever! I’m beyond in love! And so glad I finally bought myself something!
