so I sell my stuff on Ebay...she sends payment 2 or 3 days later w/o contact or anything :angry: ....that was a Friday eve, so Monday morning I ship it, and Tues am I get some note explaining the $ had been withdrawn BACK out of my account! and so I send her and email trying to figure out WTF is going on
turns out she is having problems......OK, BUT IT IS ALREADY IN THE MAIL! she says to remind her to pay in a couple days and she will remit payment then....has been a couple weeks! my FIRST freaking sale and the ***** is bailing on me! I did EVERYTHING right.....I made the auction immune to those with non-paying status, I checked her feedback (at that point totally 100% + ), I waited until payment
I am so steamed....problems or not, I just reminded her AGAIN and will be contacting Ebay Friday....email today said 3 days....I am sorry she screwed up her bank account but she isn't returning emails and isn't being a good ebayer....I can see if she was in constant contact but she isn't
damn.......my first sale.......and a nasty taste.....peachy
on the other hand.....Mom is going to show up here in 30 mins or so and I am headed outside to work on the fence....I have more errands to run this afternoon and am going to see if she feels ok can she take Brian home and I will come get him and the utility trailer tonight.....if not, *sigh* ah well, will see what I can do (NO PROMISES) but I need to get the dogs in for shots, wormer all around for the cats too (they don't go tho), go back to the linoleum place, drop off the samples (and hopefully get my forgotten sunglasses) and maybe head to the bead place (but ONLY if things go VERY well!)
sooooooooo.......guess I had better get us all dressed.....Alex is being a sweetheart this am and is crashed on our bed....Brian is another story but he is also 2.5 so what should I expect
oh yeah, and red is gonna get a hair cut today and that'll thrill him to pieces.....I should just take him to Walmart....I don't much care to do it.....altho Mark trusts me and says I can cut his when I am ready....he is getting shaggy too am still pretty scared to do his.....ah well, it looked really good last time.....maybe I can do it again
but then again if I screw it up he won't ask me again :rofl: naw......I wouldn't do that to him ok, not on purpose!
oh man, been a LONG week.....yesterday Brian was SUPPOSED to go to G-ma's house, and he has been CHANTING it since he left her house last weekend.....NAW, she doesn't spoil him at all so anyway, we invited them for dinner, fresh corn (sugar sweet), tomatoes, sauted zuccini, rotis port loin.....OMG good let me tell ya!
right before dinner, Brian gets even more clingy then he had been the last couple days and sits in G-pa's lap and passes out cold.....so we put him down for a nap and he is hot.....not REALLY hot but def not feeling good either...decision is made he isn't going
he wasn't happy about it either.....but also didn't wake up til about 8:30 when I GOT him up and fed him dinner......he went back down about 10ish and came in the room sometime later....when I woke up to feed Alex Mark was gone.....that was 2ish (I think?)
so Mark came back later on, and this am at 6 something Brian was back and Mark got up.....
at least I think that was last night I am a bit tired, did I mention that? *sigh*
so anyhow, he had a slight temp again this am but it cleared right up with Motrin and I honestly just chalked it up to teething (droolin too ya know, ICK)
his girlfriend (Merrick the wonderful) came to watch the boys for us today and off on a date we went MEXICAN FOOD omg it was SOOOOOOOOOO good......and then off to look at linoleum, tile and formica.......we ACTUALLY have the linoleum picked out, will see about the rest.....but had a ball getting ot where we are anyhow....we were out about 3 hrs
the boys were good for her too.....even did a tandem sleep for her *grrrrrr*
that ISN'T fair! ah well, at least we weren't called back early and we DID have a great time out....got home shortly after Alex woke up and he took a lightish snack and went BACK to sleep after having the third explosion in two days AND THAT was after he power spit up
ah well......and I did cut Brian's hair the other day.....it looks bad, but then it was a fight from the beginning and it doesn' tlook THAT bad I guess.....ah well
had a great talk with Merrick too.....and now Mark is out mowing the lawn, soon to be back in for Monk
is nice that Brian is with G-ma, but I feel guilty cuz she said he isn't feeling that well....I honestly don't think it is much, and if he does have something it most likely came from down there....I am still not conivinced it ISN'T teething....tomorrow we head to the Art show (maybe) and possible the farmers market
we will see.....I don't care.....sex would be nice, THAT I care about.....we shall see....
so today was a pretty good day, ended up getting a much needed nap, but awoke in full psycho ***** mode...and I mean REAL ***** mode...and after such a great night I DON'T understand why! Brian stayed with G-ma last night and Mark and I had fun!! TWICE
and yet, here I am contemplating strangling my son who REFUSES to even attempt potty training, fighting more anxiety attacks, and having to deal with rage issues
this isn't good...I at least got Brian to pee in his potty....of course he missed more then he got that ****ty lil trainer of his....I don't know what MORON developed it but he needs to be shot....several times....creating a very slow and painful death....
and then he starts to wail.....like I had taken every toy away from him he has ever owned....but I have had it....he is 2.5 and MORE then old enough to start, AND can communicate and from here on out I am sticking to my guns.....after breakfast in the am he is GOING to sit on the potty until he does SOMETHING...until SOMETHING gets into his brain
damn, I need to go out, get semi to fully loaded and dancing....so I can remember just how fat I am if nothing else.....and then I wanna screw Mark's brains out.....and not be so tired that yeah, it is good, but ALL ya wanna do is sleep.....dang, I don't even remember getting snuggle time afterwards....and this am...more.....it was better, but I was still pretty tired and then in the middle of snuggling, Alex wakes up, and of course I leaked some
I feel so f'ing sexy
I want a vacation...one from life.....one from anxiety.....I want to be an adult again.....contributing to the coffers and not just a boob and the spoon bearer (the spanking spoon)....not just the poop patrol and laundress.....I want to be able to go shopping w/o worrying about OH SH!T I FORGOT MY LILYPADZ...and not worrying about Alex and is he starving to death....or Brian and his damn teeth....
I need some valium or something......really.....fork me, I think I am done
oh hey, I know this will offend many, but honestly I don't care......sue me
Dad sent it to me and I like it
Subject: bill of rights/wrongs
The 2005 Revised Version of The Declaration of Independence
"We The People Of The United State s"
The following has been attributed to State Representative Mitchell Kaye from GA. This guy should run for President one day... ( Hey, I would vote for him. (Jim))
" We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other bed-wetters.
We hold these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are confusedby the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights as such:
ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.
ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended.This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone -- not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.
ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful, do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.
ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes.
ARTICLE V : You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we're just not interested in public health care.
ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don't be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.
ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don't be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won't have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.
ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of free education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful.
ARTICLE IX: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.
ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country. We don't care where you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from!
ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country's history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!!!!
If you agree, share this with a friend. No, you don't have to, and nothing tragic will befall you if you don't. I just think it's about time common sense is allowed to flourish.
Sensible people of the United Statesspeak out because if you do not, who will?
got up this am at aroung 7-7:30 (I think)....Mark got up with Brian and they had breakfast and I vegged (aka semi-nursed) Alex for a couple mins....got up, put Alex in his swing and got breakfast (I was STARVING!) Mark headed outside to set sprinklers, and Brian and I stayed in the house and no, that didn't go over totally well but we managed (he doesn't like getting wet, that water is COLD)
and I run to the bathroom in time to see a huge cloud of dirt, a raised pick-up in the ditch and a sm car sitting crossways in the road with a steam cloud going pretty good (popped the radiator)...Mark is headed down the driveway and I yelled GO HELP I GOT 911! and off he goes at a good trot (he wanted me to know where he was headed)
the guy in the truck was ok and I could see him trot over to the car...obviously HE wasn't under the influence and was ok.....so, the short version is the guy in the car was trapped, and everyone said he was on something (one said something to the effect of the f'ing crackhead is tripping...a neighbor)...he wasn't hollering or anything.....no clue what is going on there....the other guy was just out early going shooting before it got too hot.....his wife and two SMALL kids show up and she is fussing all over him....he made the comment had she or the kids been in the truck he would have killed him (me too, boat races or no there is NO excuse to be out wasted or high in a car) Mark got back after fire and rescue showed up (and police) and it took them a lil to get him extracted...I took a cooler with water, ice, dr pepper (hey, it's what I got!) and cups for rescue etc and it made me feel pretty good to see em running around with the water
and once again, I am seriously battling anxiety.....Mark drives a lil car...NO, he doesn't do it intox or wasted but going mano e mano with a full sized truck or suv scares the hell out of me....
at least I don't need a nap.....nope, higher n a kite on adrenalin still and here it is a couple hrs later....just what I needed
on the other hand, I do have more jewelry stuff....I DO have some stuff to take care of....I need to work on Chimmy's bracelet too....AND Mark and I are seriously talking about an addition
just when life starts to calm down life spins up again
I hate this house.....and Mark thinks he can make it all better by remodeling and updating
he can go to hell.......I will still hate this house.....it has one of the most stupid set ups known to man....and it is SMALL.....remodeling won't fix that.....it has a big feel in places like the openness from the dining to the living room, but said "open" space makes things difficult to decorate
this house sucks
I wish it would burn down....I just don't want to loose my stuff or my pets
am not having a good day.....and I want to visit harm on Mark as well....not good
ah....the day got better....went to the grocery store and bought an obscene amount of groceries...with Alex in the front pack...Mark took the boy lest I kill him publicly...things went smoothly and some rough looking angel (driving a Ford dually no less ) helped me load them into the truck...bless that man, honestly he made my day
off to Walmart....where 3/4 of the way thru things I wanted to get Alex explodes....OH ****...literally....SO I quickly but deliberately get things paid for, forgot a few things, but left anyhow
