Hello Dearies, it's been an interesting day so far....
I didn't have to be at work until 8am, so I set my clock to 6:30 and got an extra hour of sleep....almost. There was a lot of noise and activity last night. I got woken up several times. I opened my eyes this morning and almost pissed myself with how bright it was outside. My first thought was "Oh Fuck" I over slept! I looked at the clock and sure enough it was 6:25. Fuck fuck fuck fucktty fuck! I don't have time for a shower and I'm going to be late. Then it hit me. I hadn't overslept, my alarm wasn't going off for another 5 minutes, I didn't have to be at work until 8. Damn! I could have slept another 5 minutes.
Work today started out pretty good, but by lunch time the suckiness had set it. The Ass was in one of his moods by then. He's in front yelling at me for not helping the new guy. At first I cocked my head puzzled. After getting yelled at a few times I had, had enough and started yelling back. I was running my board and helping on both of the others, and this idiot is screaming at me for not helping. One day the Ass will realize that I'm not a kid and can't be bullied. The new guy (no cool blog name for him yet) seems pretty cool and a hard worker. I was disappointed that the Stripper wasn't working in back with me until I saw I had Boobie. Boobie is very cool and into the whole DIY thing like I am.
I had talked to a woman on FB yesterday about buying some fresh blackberries from her. She brought them to work for me. Oh nomnomnom. Those were the sweetest blackberries I have ever eaten.
The MIL picked me up from work. I almost cried on the way home. I pulled down the mirror in her truck to fix my hair and found not 1, not 2, but a whole strip of grey hair in my bangs. How can this be? I'm not old. Not even close! I knew I had a few scattered over my head, but not a whole fucking lock of hair! It was all I could do not to break down and sob like a baby. The Chief says I match his beard now. Screw that! His beard is sexy and looks so good on him. Not so much on me. The urge to run (not walk) to Wal Mart and buy dye is almost overwhelming.
Tonight is my niece's graduation party. Guess who isn't going to be able to go? That's right me! My parents are sick, and I'm not sure what's wrong with my sister.
Time to pull up my big girl panties and try to find a ride.
Thank goodness for good neighbors and good friends. I now have a ride to the party. I would have been heartbroken if I had missed it.
So thanks to my downstairs neighbor ( I promise to walk lighter) I got to go to my niece's party for a little bit. I didn't want to stay too long. I really don't care for her father's family (I only like one of them), and the Chief hasn't been feeling very well. It was so great to get to see all 4 of my girls and my OLDer sister. I do miss her terribly. I had a nice visit with my sister, her girlfriend, my sister-in-law and her husband. I must say I have the prettiest nieces in the world. I can't believe how grown up they all are. Niece #1 lives with her boyfriend and is a cosmetologist. Niece #2 just graduated and wants to be a chef. Niece #3 is almost 16 and an awesome artist. Niece #4 is a dancer. I miss the days I had to change their diapers, but I'm so very proud of them!
So now I'm home, the Chief and kids are eating a very late dinner, and I'm thinking it's almost time to lay down watch some Lost with the Chief and get my snuggle time. Damn, but 5:30 comes early!
