Dreams vol. 2

The power went off this morning. Luckily, my alarm had already clicked on so I didn't wake up late. Had I been working for Head Start, this obviously would have cost me my job. Just another example of why their AWOL policy is completely unreasonable. Here's the summary from last night's dream-fest. Click on the links to see what the… Continue reading Dreams vol. 2

Buttering up

Rooferman called last night. He was so chipper I thought he was going to burst into song. He said "I'm really happy how things are going. Thank you so much for meeting with me." I was the definition of skeptical. Either his parents have actually talked some sense into him, or he's still trying to… Continue reading Buttering up

I went to bed at 9:30 last night, and woke up totally recharged. For some reason, these "tummy" episodes only last for about 24 hours, occurring every 4-6 weeks or so. I'm getting a little more concerned because they are getting closer together and are more intense. Time for another trip to the Primary Physician,… Continue reading Mutability

Boiling Over

Its day 2 of my new job and I'm exhausted. Last night I was sicker than a dog. I have no clue why. I think I really may have IBS or an ulcer or something, because these "episodes" are getting more frequent and have brought me to a whole new level of scary. I was sweaty and… Continue reading Boiling Over

No “Mercy”

I would like to educate the blogging world of the practices of an organization whose so-called "vision" is to "create a more humane world." Yes, I live in a housing project funded through a non-profit organization. I have been a resident of this apartment complex for 15 months. I have never once been late on… Continue reading No “Mercy”

Buffet for the soul

My daughter really is amazing. Mostly I just think of her as a very adaptable, intelligent, out-going, observant little 2 and a half year old. Every compliment she receives, I usually brush off with a "oh, stop." I'm the one who needs to stop, because she deserves every bit of praise. Its hard to stop and… Continue reading Buffet for the soul

2-Week notice

I'm in 2-week notice limbo. After the initial panic, my boss gathered her wits and asked me to write a list of everything I do on a daily basis, so she can see what type of person she wants to hire. Little did she know, the school district was not planning on hiring a replacement… Continue reading 2-Week notice

The interview

Since I had put my boss and one of my co-workers down as references for this new job, I had no choice but to break it to them that I had an interview today. I cried a little. I will probably cry a lot more if I actually do get the job. I don't know… Continue reading The interview

“You’ve made your point”

That was the first text message I received from Rooferman. The next one told me to "stay away from his family" and I had "already ruined his Christmas enough already." Unfortunately for him, both of his parents love me dearly and he has no control over our relationship, and (guess what!) we have to deal with each… Continue reading “You’ve made your point”

I feel skippy today. You would have never known that 48 hours ago I resembled single mommy roadkill on the bathroom floor. It felt good to be back to work. Everyone was so chipper and happy that I was feeling better, it was kind of nice. LB made her first appearance in the local paper this weekend.… Continue reading Skippy
