I'm Taking September By Storm

Monday, September 01, 2008

It's been way too long since i have blogged...August has been a busy month... waaaay too busy...even this kitty could not keep up...finally had to throw in the towel and admit...i was not Super Kitty... much to everyones dismay... lol.... but i'm ready for september..ready to get back to me...i have been working the last couple weeks getting back to me...getting back to center... it's been a round couple weeks...but i am finally getting there... it's still crazy at work... but things are finally on the wind down..and i should be seeing more normal hours very soon... the beginning of school had some uproar at the home front...but we got through it...

So friends...let's take September and make the most of it... hugs to each of you :)

You are such a strong and positive person - but not a Superkitty - just a super person. Look after yourself this month, and lets hope it heralds a calmer season for you...

    Hugs to you too!

It sounds like you're ready to move on to September. Getting back to center can be hard -- I think I spent most of August doing that -- but it's absolutely worth it. I hope you're able to stay centered and focused throughout the new month!

    It *is* exhausting to be super Kitty - I'm sure!!! Just remember SP shouldn't stress you out - it should be there to help support you! So don't worry about us... take care of you! :)

Glad you might have a chance to get back to 'normal' soon!

Teenagers are BRATS!!!

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

It starts at birth...you love them and spoil them..to find the little darlings know just how to manipulate you into holding them just because... then the terrible 2's hit...about 6 months way too early... then that independent streak where they can do it all... then school starts...and they learn things like there is a poor and a rich...and they don't care if they are poor...just so they can dress like the rich kids...and then the i wants start... here is where the sexes start to seperate...the girls go gaga over the cute boy and the boys go gaga over the pretty girls...though don't ever mention that to them...boys will do everything in their powers to deny and prove it wrong... then we move into the preteen stage..funny...i thought at that point i had conquered the i want i want i want stage...but it comes back...full force and plus some... then the stage where i swear...it's the terrible 2's all over again... their everywhere and into everything...except now they bring friends...as they near the adulthood line...you think, ok, this is fun... i can handle this...and then...you do something like..oh..take them to the mall... before i go on...i will remind you..this is a true story...and yes, i do believe my children are evil... and they learned it from their grandma... (read blog "Wow, What a weekend" from 6/7/08) ok..so i take the brats...um... little darlings, to the mall... we stop for lunch first thing...now..the plan is... i sit and relax and just enjoy the people...i love to people watch...and teenagers go their own way and spend all their hard earned money on over priced mall stuff... but noooo...girls want mom to tag along... but i say "i don't wanna" but they insist...it is after all, mom and kid time...ok ok...so i get up and we walk..son dashes off to a games store...as predicted... and girls and i walk our happy way... DD1 gets stopped by vendor to inquire about her lovely fingers...to find out she is only 17...so he moves on to mom... he asked my age...i told him to old for him to be asking such a question... at this point, he realizes i'm the mom and not the sister...which for some strange reason, people tend to think i am...not that i am complaining mind you...lol... so he puts all focus on me... i'm trying to get away by talking to my daughters...who by now are a fit of giggles... so mr yum (i call him this, cause though he was a salesman to the highest degree...he still looked yummy...tehe) is dragging me to his cart to sell me his wares of dead sea salt. by now...girls have disappeared... their giggles no longer to be heard... the brats deserted me...up and left the mother that was just plain happy to sit in her little corner and watch people...to give credit where credit is due... my hands are soft..i'll give him that...but for the price of $45...i don't think so... i tell him, after of course the full little pampering experience, that sorry, but i have no money..he asks then why am i at the mall...good question...i laugh, and point in the vacinity of the stores, and say, cause the girls you let get away are the ones that are loaded with the cash... so i walk away...with no products...and very soft hands...thank you very much... but the desire to strangle a couple teenage girls is still top priority..if i can find the brats... i go to the store we were suppose to go to..nope..no signs... so, thanking God for cell phones, call the oldest... with her giggles and hi mommy...i don't lose site of the goal nor do i get fooled by her false love... i growl...your both dead meat...more giggles as they ask how my hands felt... oh i'll tell you how my hands felt...as they are wrapped around your pretty little necks....more giggles...oh you'll giggle my pretties... as i tell you how my whole body can feel this good if i just buy this wonderful product for said amount...oh...and he would be soooo kind to give me, as a gift, the lotion to go with it... the girls are about in tears now from laughing so hard.... by now...dear son has joined them... on his behalf..he was not too happy with his sisters for leaving mom alone... i mean, after all, they were suppose to be watching me... so guess who the favorite child is now... lol... luckily for them...they did save themselves... when we had to walk past mr yum again..they blocked me in... and moved quickly... so no... they didn't die... my hands were too soft to get a good grip... emoticon

and for those that are wondering what the heck..no..i really would not kill my children... not even maim them.... make them suffer...oh yea...tehe... the nice thing about teenagers...especially the ones i birthed....is that yes...i still can make them squirm...mwhahahahahaha... emoticon

    Although it sounds horrible that your girls took off like they did...just a sec. That was horrible. and they're lucky to have a mom that would take them to the mall. Mine never did, well she dropped me off. Anyway, it's great that you were there for them but as they were supposed to be watching you, I assume due to your health, you're right they're BRATS! emoticon Not at all like you were expecting when they were little I'm sure. emoticonDo you wish sometimes you could shrink them back to an age where you could put them in a crib again or at least make the decisions where they would go?
It's a funny story...I never once thought you were going to strangle them.

Teenagers were a mystery to me when I was one (I was not very typical) and my own teenagers really 'do my head in'!

    This was hilarious!

Breathe in, breathe out....remember they are WIRED to make you HATE them so when they move out? You're not sad, lonely and depressed. You don't want to commit suicide because your precious babies moved out. Instead, you're in the street dancing after having packed them in record time! HAHA!!!

Where's the PICTURES of the obnoxious brats, eh?

:) Hope you had a great weekend. Thanx for the laugh.

  AHH, the teenage years!!!! I say the only reason you have children, is for the GREAT (meaning good not 3rd generation!!) grandchildren. They are always happy to see you, never complain, no expectations of what you should do for them, and the BEST is they are returnable!!!! With two daughters I remember the malls..... Do they still go to every clothing store, try on every outfit, only to not buy a thing!!! Then have to start all over again to decide which outfits they really want to buy? And of course the constant changing outfits every two hours at home when they aren't even going anyplace!!! Never a need for carpets in their bedrooms cause all the two hour and clean cloths they took off cover the floor quite nicely!! Did I mention after my girls left the nest it took me 10 years before I could walk into a mall? To this day i avoid malls whenever possable!!

    Really sounds like a delightful day. I was at a mall recently and got corned by this lovely young girl who wanted to see my nails. She proceeded to polish and shine one really shiny and would include the free lotion/oil and something else.

I told her it would only work as long as she followed me everywhere I went and did my nails for me as I would never get around to getting them done.

I got away.

But I couldn't blame no one for getting trapped. But that's ok. I love a good sales pitch. I can easily say no.

Where The Kitty Is...

Sunday, July 13, 2008

Well, most of my team mates know, but just to let everyone know... the last couple months have had me working some major hours... good for the pay check, not so good with life... but i was able to keep up some semblance of normal...until this week... my home life has gone crazy, my work life is crazier...and i'm just left spinning around in circles... needless to say...something had to give...unfortunately...it's sparks... i'll still check in everyday, and say my hello's...but all the extra posting is on hold for about a week...hopefully next weekend will be back to normal...but right now i have to concentrate on my daughter moving back, under much destress, leaving us all on a emotional roller coster...then making room for the extra child... and let me tell ya...that's a whole other type of fun when you live in a 2 bedroom apartment...lol...and on top of all this...working 12-15 hour days... so this week i'm concentrating on just getting back to a somewhat normal... hey...it can happen...lol...even in kitty's world emoticon

    Sorry that life is so hectic for you right now. Your daughter is so lucky to have a loving mom like you. She must be so glad that she could move back in with you. You're such a great mom, Kitty.

I hope you're able to squeeze in at least a small amount of time for yourself everyday, even if it's just fifteen minutes to close your eyes to meditate. Please take care, and I hope everything will go smoothly with your daughter's move.

The Week Is DONE!!!

Friday, July 11, 2008

I knew it was going to be a long exhausting week...and it was... i think the most sleep i got was a 5 hour night..the shortest day was an 11 hour day... i clocked out at 65 hours tonight...i am tired...but satisfied with a job well done... we had our stressful times... the crankies sneaking up at times... and some good times...like when i went and bought coffee...and gave the receipt to him and when he opened his mouth to say something, i told him hey, since we are like old married folks and spending all our time together, he may as well pay for my expences also...lol... it was right after that he told me i was acting like a nagging wife..tehe... we've also been bickering like married folks do... we've also had our moments of just sheer fall over exhaustion... but we did make it through... though the ones watching are still wondering how...all i can say is...thank God for caffeine...lol... out of this i have gotten some extra pampering also... drivers bringing me candy... cause chocolate is a girls best friend after all... and yes..i ate it in moderation... the new girl has made and brought me coffee and this morning stopped and bought me some of the super charged coffee :) the dock guy stopping on his lunch break to buy me some of the super charged coffee...and the sales rep bought me some flowers and a card that said thank you... the supervisors are going out of their way to say thank you and working double time to get another girl in the office so this does not happen again. all said and done...i do love the extra attention i am getting and more along the lines of knowing that it is appreciated...but even better...i know i have done a good job...i know i have gone over and above what was expected of me...i know i went the extra mile...and i did it well... and though i would not recommend doing this... the fact is.... i have a sense of something good...yea...i'm exhausted beyond belief... i also feel as if i have accomplished the impossible... and with people i love and respect... and good thing i do...i have spend more time with them than my own kids...ikes.... but no worries...the weekend is scheduled full of rest and family.... no drama...no outsiders...just rest and family :)

I just read an article about the affects of working long hours, and I didn't like what I read. Ok, off the soapbox, LOL!!! Have a great weekend!!! And maybe week, don't know if I will get a chance to find an internet cafe while we are gone.

Grrr, that will suck if I can't log on all week, but I will be thinking of you all! Can you send me the daily dares for next week in an e-mail so I can keep up with them? If you send them to me by Sunday night, I will get them before I go.
