MAJOR ANXIETY/VENT/WHATNOT. I AM MORTIFIED BY WHAT MY LAND LADY HAS DONE TODAY!!!
I can't stand the woman and so I spent the whole time in my room pretending to be sick. She was supposed to be here at 10am with 3 screens to put in downstairs. Somehow she forgets something on one. These are pop in screens, honest, 2 mins to get in but still I planned an hour for her to be here cus she is slow.
I was supposed to meet up with my friend Trish, her boyfriend has a truck and she was going to help me move stuff after the LL left.
Well, LL shows up after 11am...puts in the screens like we had talked about and then decides she is going to do something to the bathroom door. Then decides to clean out the bathroom fan. Then decides she's going to go through all the cabinets/closets in the bathroom. Now mind you, none of this was pre-planned and she did not ask either of us. Dh was down stairs doing homework and noticed she was working on the door, then it she went on and on.
She removed the whole bathroom cabinet! I have sink standing up on just the frame and all the pipes and such bare and showing!!! What if I had guest coming over or a party this week or sometime today??? She wants me to call her so we can talk about getting it fixed and what not LATER this week or this coming Monday. WTF? Could she not have left it and come by with the new one and had it all done at once instead of leaving me with this mess for everyone to see?
But the hour late and ripping apart the house and doing things not listed and infringing on my time don't compare to the mortifying thing she did in the mist.
Trish came by and asked for me. LL answered the door and told her I was sick and couldn't come to the door. (Ummm shouldn't she have gone and gotten my husband? What if I don't want the world knowing I'm sick and wondering if I'm okay?). Trish tells her okay and then the LL askes, "Where do you live?". Trish thought this was odd but points to the house across the street.
At this point the LL says to her, "Do you plan on cleaning up the garbage in your yard? We like to keep the neighborhood looking nice."
OMFG!!!HOW CAN YOU OPEN UP SOMEONE ELSE'S DOOR AND QUESTION THEIR COMPANY AND THEN MAKE A STATEMENT LIKE THAT TO THEM???
Trish responded with, "I'm moving in and the stuff in the yard is being moved in. No one in the house minds and none of the neighbors have come to us and complained so I don't see where the issue is."
The items in the yard being moved in from her apartment? Futon, Bed, BBQ grill and yard chairs (they BBQ on Sat and we did it on Sun.)oh, and a swing set for the baby (infant/toddler small thing with just a swing).
I have not gone face to face with Trisha yet but I'm so humiliated by the fact that my LL did this. Not only was she nosy going through cabinets, inconsiderate by showing up late and staying later than needed because she decided that she was going to do whatever she wanted and leave us with the mess but then she questioned and insulted not only a friend, my company but one of my neighbors! Until I leave this house I'll have to deal with Trisha in one way or another.
I've dealt personally with this woman calling my personal belongings "Trash/garbage" and insinuating that they are but she went a bit too far when she opened my door.
Her favorite line, "I want this house to feel like home."
My home or your home cus things like that would never happen in MY home.
This is the type of stress that is getting to me.

Okay for those who don't know, I love to write. Nov. is National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) and the goal is to write a 50,000 word novel.
As of the 20th I needed 24,999 more words to go. I've managed to write everyday for at least 15 minutes but I just haven't been feeling this story. I don't plot, don't write up character sheets and the such, I just sit down, write for 15 minutes and hope and pray that something comes out of it all. Well, normally it takes between 7k-15k words but this time it took until last night. Yep for days I thought that I was going to end up scratching this whole piece but last night it worked for me.
Today I got some time to shower (4 kids, one bathroom, having time is a blessing). In the shower something came to me. It's the first time that anything has "come to me" . By the time I sorted it all out, I ended up with a title to my book!
Tonight I did my art cover and tomorrow hopefully I will have something to go with it.
I hope to have it posted up by Monday.

Lost my keys, kids didn't get to school, searched and destroyed the whole house, even dug through the garbage...yuck. I had no food in the house but pasta so we had dry cereal for breakfast...yummm(today was food shopping day since we missed it yesterday). Dh got hit by a semi truck that merged into him while he was in the left lane. He was able to drive the car back and give us lunch, since I couldn't even walk down to the store and pick something up because my purse was locked in the car. He did give me his key and guess what...my keys were in the back of the car (thank you girls for dragging them there!). So then the phone calls from schools, insurance companies and yada.
Anyways, everyone is safe and alive and that's is all that matters.

I think it's time for me start over. I brought back the challenge and got myself through the first two weeks but I really think I need a kick in the rear. I love my cardio and without the gym and with this weather that I can't take the babies out into, I need to find my own kick in the butt, my own cardio to get me going.
So I dug back through my files and said, yep, this circuit program kills me...sounds good, let's do it!
"Now when we fought, you had that eye of the tiger, man, the edge! And now you gotta get it back, and the way to get it back is to go back to the beginning. You know what I mean?'
Yeah Apollo, I hear ya, time to start back at the beginning, time to get my eye of the tiger back.

I can't believe that it's been 2 months since my last blog entry!!!
There are somethings that just scream, 'YOU'RE OFF THE WAGON!!!' and not blogging is one of them.
I feel that when you take the time to reflect on what is going on in your life, health life, you take the time to realize what needs to be done. Some times we just "forget" and it's way too easy to do compared to having it up front in your face all the time.
So I know that when I'm not blogging then I'm not focused on it.
It's the same for when I'm not running from my buddies sparkspages and blogs. People inspire people! When I see and read about how someone is doing something, I sit back and say, "Daaaamn I need to get moving"
When I hear about how someone gained massive weight I think to myself, "After this cookie, I'm putting the box away."
Okay so I should just put the cookie down but let's be real here...we all know I eat it first and then say, "Now I'm putting the box away." LOL
So, I need to reflect, I need to surround myself with supportive people, people who will motivate me and keep me going. For me what works is putting it all right up in my face. True life stories, daily chats with real people who are in the same struggle.
Soooo...From here on out, for the next 30 days I'm going to either write a blog a day or I'm going to visit ....3 blogs a day (let's go for 3!). I'm going to read up and see what inspires me to do better and maybe in the process, I'll inspire someone else.
CUS ALL I WANT TO DO IS GO THE DISTANCE BABY!!!
