Apologies and Good News

Tuesday, June 15, 2010

I feel I should apologize for the blog post yesterday... I was overwhelmed with emotion, hurt by someone who has been my friend for 15 years, and freaking out over what I was gonna do. I called my best friend, but she couldn't talk (she had surgery this morning, outpatient, and she's doing fine, but that's why she couldn't talk yesterday), another friend seemed to have no empathy, and I just needed to vent. Thank you all for dealing with me...let's move on!

I got a placement with the temp agency starting tomorrow!!! They do temp-to-hire stuff, so if this is a good fit it will be a permanent job! I'm excited! Wish me luck :)

Sorry you are having problems with friends and glad the one came through surgery well. I stopped by to say hi and see how you are doing as you where one of my first spark friend. I am trying to get in touch with all of them and I will am going to do that every 2 months or so.

You are a pretty gal and I know you will stay true to yourself and continue in your healthy eating, routines exercises to reach your goals. May God bless you richly every day.

Temper Tantrum

Monday, June 14, 2010

I am so MAD right now I'm shaking as I right this! I've been living with friends for three months looking for a job. I am collecting unemployment, paying my share of the rent, and sharing a room with my ten year old son. Not to mention I clean up after just about everybody. In three months that I've lived here I think two of the three roommates have done the dishes two times each, and the other one has never done it. I've cleaned just plain gross things out of the bathroom that we won't even talk about, and although only one of the three cats inside is mine my son is the one who takes care of the litter box and feeding them WITHOUT EXCEPTION! I have done everything I can to not be a burden to my friends...

I just got asked to move out by the end of the month. It was done in a very passive aggressive way by one of the roommates. The one who likes things his way, and his way only, but doesn't really have the balls to tell you exactly what he wants, but instead makes you feel like a piece of shhh. He let me know that I've over stayed my welcome, and that the other two have been asking him what my plan was. By the way, both of the other two have told me on more than one occasion that they've enjoyed me living here, that having a kiddo around all the time is different, but their learning to deal with it. I think he's full of shhh! (BTW, my kiddo left last Thursday to visit family for two months).

Yes, its been a tough change for everyone involved. I'm NOT used to having roommates at all. I've done things on my own terms my entire adult life. Yes, it sucks that I don't have a job or my own place for me and my son. This is not the ideal place for me BY FAR! But I'm doing what I have to do. I don't have a car or a driver's license, and still I'm looking for work. He should know how tough it is because he lost his job right after I did, and is still unemployed. He's just lucky he didn't live where he worked and loose him home as well, like I did.

OMG I still feel like punching something!!! I hoped getting this all out would make me feel better, but it hasn't. I'm ticked...

    Hi WYNSDAYSCHILD;

My heart goes out to you and your son and I know how horrible it is for you. You didn't ask for any of it and he should have some compassion toward people. He will find out the hard way how people should be treated because it will come home. Because this is several months old I hope you have found a place of your own and a job. In today's world that is not easy and I don't know what State you are in but our little State is hard to get a job or place. My prays will be with you and may God watch over you always. Stay strong and keep yourself focused on staying healthy for your son and you. The Spark people will be there to give you support.

    I'm so sorry to hear about this. I wish I could help. Some people are just.... bad words! I hope everything turns out, and in the meantime I'm sending you lots of mental hugs.

    UGH! Nothing worse than a passive aggressive and unappreciative creep to ruin your day, Particularly one who clearly lacks any sensitivity when it comes to understanding how tough it might be to be an unemployed mom! What a jerk.

I am sorry to hear you had to deal with him, maybe HE should move out... ;)

Sick

Monday, May 24, 2010

I hate being sick... the coughing, sneezing, sniffling, going from hot to cold, looking around the house and knowing the dishes need to be done, I still need to unpack, and my kid will eventually want to eat, which means I should cook *something*. And I have a tendency to get down emotionally as well, and I want to eat every salty, carb loaded thing in the house! I take things others say the wrong way, and snap at my kiddo for the littlest things. I feel like some wounded wild animal that knows its about to die...gawd, how morbid and depressing can I get???
I just want to feel better! It seems that when the crud and mucus that's currently seeping from every hole in my face starts to clear, the fog lifts from my brain and my spirit. I wanna feel good again. I like being the smiling, positive, somewhat goofy, friendly face, not this ugly, twisted devil twin of myself.

    Hi WYNSDAYCHILD;

No one likes a cold because they make you feel terrible and hard to breathe. This is an old blog and sure would like to know what is happening with you now. Stay focused on your healthy living, eating healthy, exercising and reaching your goal. God bless you always. Learn form Spark people.

    I like to think of being sick as our bodies way of telling us that it just needs a little break. Drink lots of fluids, get some rest, and I hope you feel better soon!

    Weird. I'm not feeling well today either, and didn't do a darn thing around the house or go to the gym. I hope you at least got to have a good weekend out of town.

Feel better soon, okay?

random thoughts after a date

Sunday, May 16, 2010

One thing you'll get to know about me, if you hang out long enough, is that I don't always express myself best verbally. Its easier for me to write and sort out my thoughts before I express them.
You asked me what I was looking to happen between the two of us, a hook up, a boyfriend, a husband. I'm not sure how eloquent I was in answering you, so I give you my answer here now...
What I'm looking for: A friend. Someone to go out with. Someone I can enjoy good, intelligent conversation with. A lover who will make mad, passionate love to me and not hold back.
I don't care (at least not to the extent of it being my personal business) about where you stand financially. I can take care of my own, and I want you to be able to do the same, not for my sake, but yours.
Most importantly, as of this moment at least, I want to simply enjoy being with you... Have fun, laugh, and enjoy one another's company, and encourage one another to follow their passions. Keep it light...ya know?
What I don't want: someone around 24/7. Now don't take this the wrong way... I want to be with you. But I've become very accustom to doing things my way. Integrating you into my life (and me into yours) will be a process, but one that is worth it should we both put forth the effort. However, I have a child at home for whom I'm the sole provider, and I also have my own goals I'm striving for. You have your own ambitions, and I'm sure you wouldn't want me to be a hindrance to them either.
If it sounds like too much to ask for then I apologize. Maybe I'm asking the wrong person... If not, then let's give it a try.... I think you're kinda sexy and fun. Maybe we can experience life together for a little while...

    @Chattiegirl~ thanks for the input! I put off getting into a relationship for so long because I wasn't sure what I wanted. I was kinda stuck in a "love stinks" mode after a couple of relationships went sour. But being asked point blank what I wanted made me want to write it all down...that's the best way for me to prioritize. So I posed it in this blog as if I were speaking directly to that person thinking maybe it will help me be able to answer that question should it come up again.
Best wishes to you as well!

@Laura~um, yeah.... He asked me to come watch him play the other night, then we went and over to Jackalope afterward. Don't say anything though...shhhhh! I'm trying to play coy, but I suck at it! lol

    Hi WYNSDAYSCHILD;

I think a lot like you, since my husband died in 06 from cancer and left me a young widow, I am trying to find a friend. I am 66, retired and have 2 dogs,children grown and grandchildren, great grandchildren. You are just starting life, but surprising our thoughts run parallel. I want a friend to spend time with, go to dinner, shows, have fun. Passionate sex is out at this point but who knows what my turn up. My problem is I had a wonderful husband in everything and it would be hard for a man to come in my life and go up against his memory. That is why I just want a friend to get to know and go from there. After 36 years marriage and in my house for 20 + you know I don't want someone coming and changing things.

Life is a mystery and we have to solve the puzzle. Good luck darling and try and be open to your new friend. May God watch over you always.
