Time for a LIST!

Things that are aggravating me today:
  • WORKERS COMP! W had an appointment today, and we thought we would be moving on to scheduling the next thingymajig, but NO! He drove the hour and a half plus today, met with the doc, only to be told he has to come back tomorrow for three hours of tests. And before we can move on to the thingymajig, he'll have to go back to review the test results first. NOONE TOLD US THIS! (until today. this pisses me off!)
  • MY HUSBAND! While at his doctor appointment, an hour and a half plus away, he locked his keys in the truck. Left them in the ignition, something he has never done before. THANK GOD for the roadside assistance with the warranty on the truck because they came out and got him back in and it didn't cost anything. I was going to be furious if I had to leave work, drive out there to unlock the truck and drive back.
  • WORK! This place is just driving me absolutely crazy. My bosses are never here, but I have so much stuff piled up that I need them for. Then they act all crappy when I am swamped with stuff and can't do this or that at the drop of a dime. HELLLOOOO! Come to work for more than a few hours a day and I wouldn't be as stressed out.
  • HOLY SHIT MY SON WILL BE FOUR IN LESS THAN TWO MONTHS!!!!!!! I am not prepared for a party, the inundation of gifts and more meaningless JUNK toys and stuff. If I thought it would be effective, I would institute a "no toy" gift rule. Books and clothes or puzzles, instead of useless piles of plastic crap he doesn't need. Then Christmas is shortly after that and my inlaws do NOT know the meaning of not going overboard on him. I'm glad they love him and so on, but my house is too cluttered.
  • CLEANING! The belt on my top of the line Dyson vacuum cleaner broke. After six months. I looked for one in about five different stores this weekend, with no results. Turns out, they aren't sold in stores. One call to the company, and a new belt along with a new complete brush component, since they updated the part after we bought ours is on the way. All under warranty and free of charge. Guess it does pay to have a deluxe vacuum cleaner. 'Cept I can't actually, you know, VACUUM until the stuff gets here. Two dogs, two cats, a messy toddler, and hair that falls out of MY head with a slight breeze makes for gross carpets. But forget I mentioned any of that if you ever have a chance to come visit me! (hahahahahah)
  • K, I think that's it. Must go back to this pile of meaningless work on my desk, even tho the bosses don't seem to care about any of it, so why should I?

Hope you all have a good week. Talk to you soon.

P.S. This is my 100th post at Blogger!! WOO!

What's that strange sound?

Oh yeah, it's SILENCE!!! And I don't mean from me and not posting forever, but in my house, because there are not SIX extra people in it. And an extra dog, who did NOT get along with my animals at ALL! One of my dogs went to the vet after a minor scuffle. Then my one cat, you know, the one with the claws, shredded the visiting dog's nose and face. Why? Because the stupid dog didn't get the clue that when a cat is hiding under the bed, and is growling at you, it might NOT be a good idea to get all up in her face. This is after my non-clawed cat beat the hell out of the dog, too, and bit her ear. Who said dogs were the smarter species??

Anyway. The inlaw invasion is over, they are home safe and sound and no permanent damage was done. By the end of the week, nerves were frayed and everyone was getting snippy, so it was good once they left. We did tons of stuff in the evenings, Bubba stayed up late all week, regardless of my objections, of course. I ate way too much junk food, way too often. I don't know how I didn't gain ten pounds.

Work is crazy and I would love to write about this crazy case we took that keeps snowballing into more craziness, but I just can't. Maybe when it's all settled, which won't be a while considering all the aspects of it.

W has been down in the dumps again. We've not been fighting bad, until he blew up the fricking computer at home. Joint effort got it up and running again, but not before some ugliness. I've been telling him and telling him to quit downloading so much junk, but he never listens and then gets pissed when the computer goes kaput. Damn thing is only a year old. But it's all fine now.

His next appointment is Monday, but it's with the shrink he has to see before following through with the next step. Which, hope against hope, is going to relieve pain in his back, but we just won't know until it happens.

Bubba finally got a haircut. He kept telling us he wanted to let it grow, it was getting pretty shaggy, and he finally said we could cut it, and we quickly ushered him into the bathroom and buzzed him up good. He looks so much older. OH! He's getting FRECKLES!!!! Some very light ones under his eyes and on his nose. Thought it was dirt at first, but no, cute, adorable little freckles. He spent a lot of time at the beach with the inlaws, and even smothered in 45SPF the sun still got him freckles, and I LOVE THEM!!!! But don't call him freckle-face, he gets mad. Freckles alone is ok, but not freckle-face.

I did find out, officially, that I will be meeting Big & Rich next month with the station. I volunteered to help out on site, with last minute giveaways and what not, and that was appreciated. For the chance to totally embarrass myself a little work seems miniscule. I need to plan out what I'm going to say, when I finally get my chance, because I really don't want to totally embarrass myself. Not to mention, I want to ask them if I can party with them after the show. Not sure that will go over well, but you never know.

Ok, I gotta get back to work. Hope all is well in your worlds. I haven't chatted with any of you in a while. Thanks for stopping by, I'll try not to let so much time go in between posts.

we're alive

I don't get much computer time when the inlaws are around, so I'm trying to make a quick post from work.

Our weekend was fantastic, albeit expensive. We gambled away everything we took with us, which we expected, we were just hoping to win big and be all happy and such. We had fun, the slots were great, different, and the concert. Oh man, it was phenomenal. My voice still isn't back to normal, it's all scratchy and hoarse, but it was so fricking worth it! I tried to crash their after party behind the casino, but W wouldn't let me, and I was kinda scared of getting arrested. I hope so bad I can meet them next month when they are in this area.

Took some pics, but not many, was fighting with the camera, I really need to learn the settings better.

The trip up was nice, it was gorgeous driving through the mountains up there. We want to go back, for a longer trip or vacation, stay in a cabin by the creeks or something. Dreaming big, but probably won't ever happen. We still talk about going back to Williamsburg, too, but doubt it will happen.

Otherwise, the weekend flew by. Bubba had a fantastic time at G-ma's with my brother and his son. He's currently being spoiled rotten by Grammy and company. He's still having meltdowns at times, but I'm dealing with them.

Today is the first day in about four days that I have not had a splitting headache. Even through the casino/concert, etc. and popping W's migraine pills, I was quite miserable at times. Yesterday was the worst, but it seems to have gone away after a night's sleep. Don't know how long that will last since work has me crazy.

Off I must be, got to get some junk cleared off my desk. Boss2 has been out since last week, so once he appears this afternoon, the craziness will begin. And no sign of Boss1 yet today, either, tho I have discussed some new calls with him.

Hope you all had a good Labor Day. We grilled about ten pounds of chicken, and my refridgerator is completely stuffed since we have so much company. Normally it's empty but for soda, milk and lunchmeat and water. I should take pictures of the difference.

Have a good day y'all. Hope all is well.
