It has been a while old friend

So it seems that after I wrote about my blog being neglected I have really neglected it, lol.  At least this time it was for a good reason.  I have been back at work now for a little over 30 days.  It feels like I never left.  The only difference is now I am on graveyards.  I really love my shift.  I like not having the hassle of some of the things that occur on day shift.  The only downside I have seen so far is that I feel like I don't see much of my husband since he works rotating shifts. 

We started having problems with Drama Queen a couple months back...we found out that she was using her grandmother's (her dad's mom) house to have sex with her boyfriend.  I knew that she was getting to the age where I was going to start having to worry about her having sex, which is why I put her on the pill months ago, but I didn't know that she was going to be sneaky and a liar.  I am more upset about the fact that she basically used her grandmother to get something that she wanted that we didn't allow her to do at our house.  She has been "grounded" since we found out.  I took her phone away for about a week and she has not been allowed to stay the night at her grandmother's house since.  This weekend her grandmother took her to Waxahachie to her dad and step-mom's house to visit for Christmas.  Yesterday from her dad while I was sleeping after work informing me that Drama Queen is moving back in with them....during Christmas break!  I am not really sure what the heck is going on since the only thing I keep being told is that "we think it is for the best" but if that is what she wants then she can carry her dramatic, smart mouthed, bad attitude self back there and stay.  I love my child but I am not going to play the I am mad at you so I am moving game.  Once she moves back with her dad she is staying there...the end. I will not be a pawn in her childish games any longer.

In other news...It has nearly been a year since the dear hubby and I got married.  Wow!  How did he get so lucky? lol  No really, I consider myself to be very lucky.  I married a great guy.  Finally.

My poor blog is so neglected, it isn't that I don't have time to blog...I just don't have anything interesting to say.  I think that is very sad. 

Today I have a job interview at my previous place of employment.  It has been two years and 3 months since I have had a job.  I really really want to get this job.  I need it and want it.  It is not fair to my husband to be the only one bringing home the bacon.  I understand his frustration.  I am frustrated too.  I have been trying to get a job for all but three of the months I have not had one.  Hopefully today is the day!!

What just happened?!

I can't believe the phone call I just got!! My neighbor's wife just called and griped me out for talking to her husband.  I am a little confused as to why she thinks I am causing problems with her and her husband.  All I have done is speak to him when I see him and let him park his truck in our driveway so he could mow his yard! Oh and he brought a piece of mail over that got put in their box by accident.  Geez lady, you need to get your issues fixed! Pronto. Hey I know, why don't you drink another beer and call the cops when you and your husband get in a fight? Stupid people get on my nerves!!

No one said you have to like them.

URG!! I am so ready for it to be tomorrow....I know it is Monday, nothing special about it, except my kids will be at school.  I realize that some people may consider me a bad mother for saying this but I don't care, my kids are driving me insane!!  If I hear one more " he touched me" or " can I have" or " it isn't fair" I may scream.  I love my children, but right now, I don't like them very much.  I have found in reading other blogs and facebook status updates that some women never say a negative thing about their children and the things they do.  My question to them is this...What are you taking/smoking and can I have some please.

wait..tomorrow is Friday??

I have realized that it doesn't really matter to me if it is Friday or days all run together.  The only thing different about Friday to me is the knowledge that my children will be home from school for the next two days.  How pathetic is that?  Hubby and I don't go out on weekends, we don't go out on weekdays for that matter.  I wonder if people in the "real world" understand the differences betweeen their lives and the lives of people who work or live with someone who works rotating shifts?  I never understood before Hubby and I started dating and it didn't really sink in until we moved in together.  There is a lot of me sleeping alone, him sleeping during the day, and no sleep at times.  It can get a little depressing at times. :( 

Okay enough whining.  I submitted a resume for a job at RRAD today.  Praying and crossing my fingers that I hear something back from them.  It would be so great to get this job, I would get to go shopping!  Woohoo!  Usually the only shopping I get to do is for children.  So not as much fun as shopping for me. lol.  Also this week I have made some more hair bows for Elmira.  I was right and she loved the first one, so I got on Ebay and bought some ribbon and clips to make more.  I also got some really cute ribbon at Hobby Lobby that was on sale for half price.  Yes, I am THAT bored at home.  And YES, I am going to put a picture of them on here because dammit I am proud of my hard work.  And I burnt the tip of my finger making bows today!!  It hurts.  Badly.  There is a freaking blister on the tip of my middle finger.  I hope that Elmira appreciates the pain I go through to make these silly things for her.

I did it all by myself!

I know people make hairbows all the time...but I did this one!  And yes, I am super stoked about it because I didn't know that I could actually be this handy. lol.  I can't wait until Elmira sees it this afternoon, she is going to LOVE it!

NOT Oprahs Book Club...

Last night was our first book club meeting. It was great.  I had a really good time and I am pretty sure that Kathy and Renae did as well.  The book was okay but not great.  We read We Were the Mulvaneys, which I mentioned in a previous post, I would give it 3 out of 5 stars if I were going to rate it.  I won't go into any details just in case someone stumbles across my pathetic blog and wants to read the book, but if you would like to read a review of the book you can check out Kathy's blog here.  She reads probably more than I do and has a lovely blog where she reviews what she has been reading.  I sometimes use her blog for ideas on what to read next. We got our book for next month, Kathy's pick, it is called Jacob's Ladder by Brian Keaney.  I am really glad that all it took was me saying we should start our own book club for this to come about.  I have always loved the idea of a book club and now I am in one!  Next month we will meet at my house, which will be very interesting. lol. With our three animals who are very nosey, and not sure yet if my kiddos will stay here confined to their rooms or if I will try and find someone to let them come over for a little while.
