I need some advice..................

So I'm sure you all remember my date that didn't happen and how i was really say the least. Well......I heard from Mr. No Show, and I'm leaning toward giving him a second chance. I know I know, but here's why.

He says he was in the hospital. Says he went in Wednesday with a pulmonary embolism in his lungs. He said he was fine Wednesday morning but as the day went on he started to feel really bad, he said he thought maybe he was having a stroke, which reminded me of our conversation on Tuesday where he stated he thought his heart was going to jump out of his chest it was pounding so fast. I said it was because he was chatting with me, I have that effect on boys, he thought it was perhaps the dozen cups of coffee he had. Anywho. Maybe it was a sign of things to come on Wednesday. He said he spent almost a week in the hospital hocked up to machines and feeling every out of it.

He text me Friday after he was out of the hospital, apologized a number of times and said how bad he felt, and again how sorry he was. Apparently he's on lots of pills, antibiotics and has to use an inhaler. He's worn out and exhausted and was sorry he couldn't reach me sooner. He goes back to the doctor this week and is hoping to make it home soon, as he's staying at his moms house.

I figure he MUST be telling the truth because, WOW that would be SOME lie. My thought, if he didn't want to go out with me he was in the clear. No need to contact me again right? So what do you think guys, should i believe him? And give it another shot? I think I'm going to because as i said the first time around, I really thought he was genuine and honestly wanted to go out on a date with me and get to know me. We are back to talking everyday and it just seems like an awful lot of effort if he didn't really want to meet me. So what do you think guys??

Flash Backs

so they said it was going to snow again. ON NO. So of course everyone went and bought eggs, milk, and bread, apparently snow brings out a mad craving for french toast, and buckled down for the SNOW. It barely covered the ground. As many of you know, aside from my friends in the warmer weather, we did get hit rather hard a few weeks ago and I finally have a few pictures to share from my weekend TRAPPED in my house with....MYSELF! And just let me tell you, kind of a snob.

This was from the first snow i had to shovel to my car, that thing with the snow drift almost as high as it. I spent 3 hours shoveling. and I HATED every HOUR of it.

I took this later that night, you cna see how the snow is filling in my hard fought trails!

And this is the snow from about a week later when we got hit with yet another bad storm. this was the day I was stuck at work for 7 hours with no power. Oh the joys!

top ten reasons I'm better off

Mama Kat's weekly writing assingment

1.) 10 Reasons why you’re better off without him….or her….or it.

2.) Brea from Tomika’s Treasure Trove wants your advice: Quick question. I am new to the blogging world, having clocked up less than 2 weeks worth of posts, and I have just had an ‘Anonymous’ commenter slam me for blogging about my daughter, mentioning her by name, posting photos and up-to-date stories about her. I have not mentioned anywhere in my blog where we live, Country OR State, or what school she goes to. I have also seen, on several other blogs, that other parents do the same thing as me. Some even mention where they live. I was wondering, as a fellow blogger who posts about your family, what are your thoughts on the subject?

3.) “What images inspire you immediately? Open a magazine and create a piece of writing (poem, story, essay) about the first image that captures your imagination.”

4.) “Why do we watch them? Make fun of soap operas with a piece of writing.”

5.) Craft time! Do share.

I'll take option #1 please

10. More time to devote to my soaps
9. Don't have to play the "how much of this conversation is a lie" game anymore.
8. Who likes the Ravens anyways
7. No more stupid questions about who I was with last night.
6. I sleep in late, since the 4 am texts stopped.
5. I can finally start that girl band I've been dreaming about.
4. I FINALLY threw out those horrible thigh highs. ugh.
3. Don't wonder what he's doing when he's not with me.
2. Stopped being the sole supporter for Kleenex.
1. Cry a TON less

OH Man

So tomorrow is the big night. D-Night. DATE NIGHT! I keep telling myself, try not to act like a dumb girl. Try not to get all self conscious, don't change your outfit a hundred thousand times, because that will mess up your hair and make-up. Do i even OWN make-up? Oh man is that a pimple?? Great. Just GREAT.

So needless to say I'm anxious for my date tomorrow night. I'm having lunch with my cousin tomorrow, will I'll ramble over what I'll wear, we might do some shopping because i need a pair of jeans that can hide my airplane hanger sized Ass.

The plan is he'll pick me up and we are going to a hibachi place for dinner. I love those places and it's a fun atmosphere so that should be cool. Then maybe bowling afterward, something other then a movie. That was his suggestion, no movies, because we can't talk at the movies. What if i don't have anything to talk about. Maybe i should make some note cards. LOL

OH MAN! I'm sure my afternoon will look something like thisI have NO idea what I'll wear as of now. And I've been thinking about it for weeks.

I wish my BFF was here, I'm not very good with the whole hair and make-up thing. So it will probably be straight( the hair) and a little mascara (the make-up).

I'm just hoping the night doesn't end like this. Oh Please don't let the night end like this. OH PLEASE!

I must be on TV

My life is like one endless running joke.......on ME. Just when i think things COULDN'T get any more...............MESSED up. they do.

In the past 7 months I've talked two DIFFERENT guys. Both turned out to be HUGE A*holes. But that's not the messed up part.

I've meant a new guy who SEEMS nice and I can't wait for our big DATE on Friday. Still not the messed up part.

The messed up part is that A*hole one doesn't get the point that I really don't want to see him anymore. See he was less then HONEST about EVERYTHING he told me. Including the COMPLETELY SINGLE part. unless are you single means, "Beside the pregnant girlfriend who lives with you and who you've since MARRIED, are you seeing anyone else". So needless to say i don't want anything to do with him. He doesn't want to let up.

Next messed up part, A*hole two, who i haven't seen or heard from in over a month texts me some VERY inappropriate stuff yesterday about certain parts of his body....if you get what I mean. GROSS. When i told him I was SO not interested and did he really think that after not talking to me for a month I would just jump at the chance, his response was "I was busy". My response was "Leave me alone, your lame".

The truly messed up part, it's like they know. Know that I'm going on a date with a guy who seems nice and they better try to mess that up for me. I'm starting to think the A*holes know each other and plan this shit out. The new guy and i haven't meant yet, face to face, but we've been talking for a few weeks. I meant him on Plenty of Fish, a dating site. We have a similar sense of humor and he's easy to talk to so I'm excited. But not that excited.

Ok I'm PEE my pants EXCITED! I'm night before Christmas excited. but I'm also VERY nervous, Bush was running for reelection the last time i went on a really date. I have no idea what to do, how to act..........this should be interesting. LOL

Ok so we were lucky enough to receive even MORE snow. Thank goodness because I was starting to be able to see the street again, and i hate when that happens. We had Blizzard like conditions on Wednesday. Most people stayed home, MOST being the important word there. I. However. Did/ Could not. so off to work i came. I didn't have any trouble, my little Vue sure can roll through the snow piles. Once i got to work ( an hour late because i had to dig out) they told me we would be closing at NOON and could i have everything wrapped up by 1 p.m. Sure why not. I'll give it a go. At 10 am we lost power. which delayed finishing the paper. Apparently we can't leave without having everything done so Myself, and 4 other women from my department stuck it out till 5:15 p.m. when the lights FINALLY came back on.

I have to say there really isn't much to do at work, in the dark, with no power. I voted for getting drunk, but that didn't go over well. When the lights finally came back on i finished up the obits and left at 8 p.m. to head to my parents house, where i was camping out. I couldn't get to my apartment because they hadn't done anything to the roads in the borough. Needless to say I'm pretty much over the white fluffy stuff now. Although it seems to be coming for yet another visit this week. GREAT. I'll tell you this, after about an hour all the emergency lights go out, and the heat is off and it starts to get a bit frigged in this place. And I thought Hell was hot? interesting.

s-NO-w, s-NO-w, s-NO-w

So last weekend we (along with a few of you) were the lucky recipients of WAY TO MUCH SNOW. And word on the street is, we are in for more tonight and into tomorrow. SUPER. Now i haven't been able to upload pictures from last weekends snow. I've only have one i took with my cell phone but i think it'll get the point can almost see the trailed i shoveled down to my car, it's the first one next to the unfinished shed (that's a story for another day). Needless to say because of the drifts it was RIDICULOUS. I'm hoping my SUV can drive over whatever amount we get tonight. They are calling for 10-15 inches. I shouldn't have any trouble. but I couldn't drive over the stuff in the above picture......well let's just say i decided not to try to drive over it.

Lucky for me I was a girl scout so was prepared for a weekend spent inside, ALONE, with no Internet or cable.
Good times. Even Luckier for me, tomorrow i get to GET UP and COME to WORK. Regardless of the snow! OH BOY!

FYI~ I don't like to talk about stuff that's going between me and members of the opposite sex. Feels like whenever i get excited about a guy and tell people about him. it BLOWS up in my face. BUT.........I'm horrible about keeping things like that to myself because I'm so excited about it. SO.......I've been talking to a nice gentleman who I'll be going on a date with (fingers crossed this doesn't jinx me) next week. And i just HAD to tell all of YOU! Maybe this guy wont be a douchebag like the last 2. We can only hope right.

In YOUR face LADY!

I deal with a lot of CRAP, not as much as my uncle who owns a septic service (now there's a ton of money in that job), but a lot of crap none the less. And some days I can't believe I don't go through the phone and grab a hold of the person on the other end. My favorite is when a man calls and yells and belittles me, I just want to say "Wow sir do you feel better about yourself? Calling and trying to intimidate a girl" (i sound roughly 8 years-old on the phone). Or the arrogant people who call and lay into me about how everything is my fault....and I'm not even the right person. Sure blame me for your wet newspaper, missing circular, world hungry and The break up of N*Sync. that's fine.

Well today takes the cake. A women calls and starts yelling at me about an obit that ran 2 MONTHS ago that I didn't put the photo in for. First off we don't keep the hard copy of the emails for that long, so i can't verify that we every received a photo to run with this obit. When i question her about whether of not the funeral home sent the photo she said and i quote "I can guarantee the photo was sent because they sent it to all the other photos so I know it was sent to you and you dropped the ball. How hard is it to do your job correctly." It's at that point I have a lot of trouble keeping my cool. It played out something like this.

Me~ Mame I'm very sorry but I don't have the information form that far back so I can't confirm if we ever even received the photo. Are you sure they sent a photo, because we keep all the photos on file and there isn't a photo for her for the day the obit ran.

Bitch lady~ I know they sent a photo. You didn't put it in and it cost so much to run the obit in your paper and you couldn't even get it right. I can guarantee you the photo was sent, everyone else got it right but YOU just couldn't do your job.

Me~ Mame had you notified us when the obit ran we could have corrected it for you.

Bitch lady~ It had already run, you couldn't have fixed it.

Me~ Mame we would have run the obit the next with the photo at no charge.
Bitch lady~ Well i was to busy to worry with it then, this is the first time I've had time to call and complain (in 2 months this is the first few second you've had!). If you would have done your job from the beginning and run the photo they sent you...

Me~ (i cut in) Well Mame we faxed or emailed a proof copy for the funeral home to view prior to print so I'm not sure why they didn't call when they saw the photo was missing.

Bitch lady~ Oh....I was unaware that...

Me~ (I cut her off again) Yes Mame you are unaware so maybe you shouldn't be yelling at me and making accusations if you aren't sure what your talking about. I'll take your name and number and you can talk to my boss, because the obit was billed through the funeral home so we can't refund you any money.

So she talked to my boss and yelled at her. Afterward my boss and i were discussing it when the women called back. She called the funeral home to tell them how WE were blaming them and the funeral director told her "you never told me to send the photo to that paper, so it was never sent" BINGO! NOW what bitch. I was surprised she actually APOLOGISED. I told my boss that made my day, her being proven wrong and calling to eat crow. MADE MY DAY!

I might have mentioned it vaguely the pother week that we were having a "ladies lunch" with my cousins and aunts. Now it's important to mention these are not ALL of my Aunts or female cousins. WE have a whole slew of them that couldn't make it, or choose not to come....whatever.

But WE had a birthday lunch, which appears we will be doing a few more times till we get everyone in, last Saturday at Logan's. It was fun......all 3 hours of it. Good times.

Some of us haven't gotten together in a LONG time. My dad is one of 8 and after a falling out a few years ago over my grandmothers care, we stopped having all the big family parties. So us ladies are slowly working towards getting those up and running again.

In this picture is Me, Melissa( in the green), Tammy and Bonnie. Melissa and i go to lunch as often as we can, and her twin girls stay with me pretty often.

And lastly, who's family doesn't make them want to drink, and drink, and drink and drink, sometimes. CHEERS!

Jokes on me

To whoever locked the copier door:

Thanks. Now I'm just sitting here, forced to blog because YOU locked me out of the Copier room and I can't make copies of.........stuff I should have copied last night while the room was still unlocked. So yeah THANKS for pointing out that I didn't finish all my work last night. You couldn't just let me slip in here at 7 a.m. make my copies and have everything done and ready to go before everyone else gets here at 8 a.m. NO. I see how you are. Guess I could have come in later today, seeing as how I'm not doing anything anyway. THANKS. I could be in bed right now! Enjoying the comfort of my bed (worst bed ever) and wrapped up in my soft blanket all warm and toasty. So yeah THANKS. Thanks for proving to me why I should have made those darn copies last night.

My thought was I've been here since 10a.m. it's now 8pm and I just REALLY REALLY REALLY want to go home, I can make my copies in the morning, set up the page dummies and still have time to burn..........You showed me!

Go You!
Up the creek

Caught me!

I don't know who posted this picture of me on the Internet. but I found it today!I mean really guys, come on. that isn't very nice. What I do on the weekends is my business. Even if it does involve laying on the couch for hours at a time watching TV or playing video games.

I did stuff. I went to preggers on Friday and played with Logan for a longtime. Where are those pictures??? Huh? The one of me letting him fall face first into my shoe would have been great to post......but NO! You pick the huge potato photo. THANKS.

Or the photo of me at lunch on Saturday downing two 22oz draft beers. Where's that photo. Hey if you had to attend lunch with my aunts and cousins you would need an IV of alcohol also. Trust me.
