"Mommy, I'm sick. My tummy hurts," Grace said.

"I'm sorry baby. Do you want to go to the store with Mommy?" I said, like an idiot, thinking she was fine.

" Yes!" She replied, happily.

And we were off to the store to buy all the fixing's for ice cream Sundays.

We'll we tried, anyway.

We weren't even past the carts in the store when Grace puked....3 times.

I'm a fucking idiot.

Karma is a bitch, too.
Within 2 hours I was riding the flu train too.

Can I Please, for the love of all that is good in this world, get a MOFO BREAK!!!!


Let me tell you how the last 2 weeks have gone.

Sinus infection

Double Ear infection

And the best part...The fucking flu....

All which seem to hit on my days off.

Last week and this week.

So, If you my wonderful friends out there, think I've been avoiding you, I have not.

I've been drowning in my own misery.....or shitting myself in my sleep.... Take your pick.

My Mom says I'm "special"


I have a bad head cold. Yesterday, while on my way to the Dr., I was listening to the radio and they were talking about what they were giving up for lent. One of the DJ's said he was giving up " going to the park" by himself. I sat there thinking, wow, it shouldn't be that hard. It's still cold outside.


I can't believe I didn't catch that he was talking about whacking it.

A thin line between love and hate


I work every Thursaday so I DVR Gray's Anatomy . I start watching it, remembering how much I love it. Then it ends and I hate it for leaving me hanging. Damn you Gray's - I love you.

" Tellllllllll me why ya gotta go and make things so complicated....."

I haven't had a good rant in a while, so why not?

First and foremost I want to say that I love my job.
Really.
I took a big pay cut going there, but hey, I love my job, so it all evens out, right?
Lately, I've been kinda frustrated.
And it isn't the job, it's the people.
When I first started last May, I was bound and determined to walk in there and be the best behavioral health tech ever.
Well, I crashed and burned.
I set really high expectations and was really hard on my self.
I'm sure that I was looked at as " too eager", but I was, so that's ok.
All I wanted to do was make a difference. Feel like I was doing something positive to help these kids.
I've come to grips that I am not quite Master of the Universe yet ( not until I'm 30), and I have areas that I need to develop.
Area 1. ) My Voice Tone
Sometimes what I say comes out more harsh than I mean for it to.
Area 2.) Having good Boundaries
I can't help but be "attached" to the kids I work with and care for them.

A co-worker told me that another co-worker thinks I have " horrible boundary issues" with the kids. That I get too personal, almost coddling the youth.
And I know that's true.
I've always been the mothering type.
I had a friend once tell me that I was trying to save the world bit by bit.
Maybe I am.

The woman that said I had bad boundaries has a very different teaching style than I do.
Don't get me wrong, I don't dislike her. I'm sure that if I had met her on different terms we'd probably be friends ( I like to be friends with everyone - I'm lame that way). But I don't feel comfortable giving her feedback and I know she doesn't feel comfortable giving me feedback.

So, how do I not be personal, but not robotic and harsh at the same time?
I've got to find a happy medium.

There seems to be such a clash between the "old school" and the "new school" staff.
People are burned out and the kids know it.
New staff want to quit because of the old staff.
I know what that's like cause I was totally there the first 2 months.
It makes me sad because we all have the common goal of helping these kids.
The good Lord knows we aren't there for the money.
And you can get easily burned out.
These kids aren't in a locked facility for singing to loud in church on Sunday, ya know? They have issues. But for the most part these kids are good eggs that have had crappy things happen to them or no structure.

We're supposed to be a therapeutic environment and the adults can't even get along and communicate properly.

Bargan Shopper

Yesterday I went to the Salvation Army thrift store to look for yarn. It's amazing what you can find. Not only did I find BRAND NEW YARN to make a ton of Irish baby blankets, I also found a BRAND NEW PINK Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sports bottle. I am the shit
It was the best 59 cents I spent all day.

Sometimes you gotta do whatcha gotta do

I work every weekend. That's right Every Friday and Saturday. And I think my friends are getting tired of it. My friend B, sent me this email in response to me saying , " No, I can't go out Saturday- I'm working a double!!!"

"I'm sick and tired of your working excuses! Fuckin' call in. What has ( the company I work for) ever done for you? Now ask yourself, what has beer ever done for you? Eh. Get my drift? "

I still went to work. Dude, I have a morgage, 2 car payments, and 2 kids.
Smetimes being an adult blows.
Then to add salt to the wound, I found out they went to my favoriest dance club, The Max.
You know what I was doin' while they were dancin it up? Sitting in a hallway, croching a baby blanket, doing 15 minute checks on the kids.
LAME LAME LAME.
Again, it's a good thing I love my job. 6 years ago I would have totally called in.
I've been working a lot. That's my excuse. But here are some random things:

Why do they always cancel the good shows? First it was Arrested Development, then Carnivale, and then my mostest favorite, Dead Like Me. Kinda pisses me off, ya know?!

*********************************************************************

I'm a rebel without a cause. I went shopping for yarn the other night with Jen. Instead of going to the bar, we stayed in and worked on blankets while watching I Love New York.

************************************************************************
People are listening. I currently have 4 cousins growing me a baby!!!!!! AND I have friends that are due in like 5 weeks. Babies, bring 'em!!!!!!!!!

******************************************************************
I haven't talked to my sweet K in months cause I'm a shady bitch. K, whereever you are, I still love you.

******************************************************************

We're wating for Randy's cousin to send us pictures of his birthday party. Simmer down, Justin. Shouldn't you be doing 5 billion things to get ready for the baby? Remember - Give Jenna whatever she wants.
