Rainy Day Memorial Day

Working with Betsy today.  It's raining with thunder storming so we are grounded at plant for a "just in case" until it passes. 

It really isn't that bad but I am not so upset about missing memorial day festivities now. :P

Working on an ulitmate song list for running.  Any suggestions?  I'll post some of my list when I finish it.

What can I say?

Asher makes it practically impossible to update on my days off.  I'm sorry to myself.

I'm gonna try to have a good day at work today.  Working tomorrow, too, so that will be a nice way to get some easy comp time earned.  Maybe my mom will have a cook out and I can stop by on my break and grab some food. 

Anyway, to work!

Well, work is still down in the dumps for me.  It's something new every day... :(


Lola's was great last night.  I had pork shanks with cabbage and lentils.  it was the best food ever. ryan had scallops.  and the beef cheek pierogies...amazing.  What a great night.  And mom got icecream cake to top it off.  What a perfect end to a great evening.

Remember when?

Remember when I was so excited that I was getting something done at work, something accomplished and finally making a difference?  Well...i guess I was a little premature on it.  Cause the big boss green lighted it but my two bosses between him and I are roadblocking it.  I can not go around them.  I hate this, I can't stand feeling impotent.  And boy, I am just a giant loaded gun shooting blanks all over the place.  At least I don't have to worry about any unplanned parenthoods.

I woke up late today

Am kinda digging Robots in Disguise right now.  Maybe I should buy it. 

Had a good birthday yesterday.  Asher has Rosiola or however it's spelled.  That is why the fever earlier and now the blotchy patches. 

Ryan and I are going to Lola's tomorrow for dinner.  Hopefully I dont' feel stupid going to someplace so nice.  I need to find something nice to wear.

Happy Birthday to me!

It's my blog, I can wish myself a happy birthday if I want to. 

Ryan sent me roses to work today.  Big smiles.  Isn't he sweet?  He isn't very smooth about it, he asked me for the address here "for something for work" as his excuse.  I had a feeling i was gonna get something but...don't tell him I knew.  It still makes me feel super special. :)

I missed yesterday, too.  This sucks.  Well, yesterday I got up at 5 to work an overtime shift at work and then i was so tired the rest of the day and so was bear and so i didn't get it done.

It feels like monday today.  It's gonna be a long week. 

Here is a picture of me from yesterday's overtime.  Doesn't it look like I'm working hard?
Here is another one.

Getting to be quite a slacker

I just finished another book and i am on the waiting list at the library for the next one.  I'm totally hooked on Audio books now, i can read them while i'm driving or hiking or gardening.  It's super awesome and I don't know why i never tried it out before.  Unfortunately you get two weeks to keep a book and i can't figure out how to return a book virtually and i am 8 of 8 on the waiting list.  hmm...8x2=16 three months till i get the next book.  Frowny face for sure.  and it's not like you can just buy one, they run like 30 bucks.  for a one time use item.  bummer.

Ah...I missed tuesday.  My excuse is that the internet was out yesterday at work (where i normally jot these things down) and then ry didn't come home until 3:30 am from work so I was not with it yesterday. 

Oh, and asher woke up at 6 am today and ry is off today and asher is being a hellion.

oh so tired today.

Rain rain rain rain and some more rain.

I feel like all it has done this month is rain.  I like rain but I am in the mood for a little change of pace.  Is this Ohio's new monsoon season?  Do we now have a monsoon season?

Having a little birthday get together on Friday, looking forward to that.  Not sure where I want to go yet.  I'm gonna see if mom can watch the bear so i dont' have to.  Not that I mind but i won't be able to enjoy myself as much if i have to take care of him, too.

Took my mom and Asher to the zoo yesterday.  I think he liked it more than the last time we went, so I'm glad I bought a zoo pass. 

I forgot to download my podcasts for today, filmsack and the bugle.  I'm very sad.  At least I have my book on tape.

Carpet buyer's remorse

Oh, yeah, after spending 3000 on the carpet for the condo it better sell.  We went with empire carpet, the guy was pretty nice and we got 12 months same as cash so hopefully that helps.  Fuck you, sheree, saying it would only cost 1000.  

I really hope this sells the condo.  

Getting my driver's liscense tomorrow.  God, it feels weird to think this is the last year of my 20's.  What did i do with all that time?  Did I waste it?  i dont' even know, it all went by so fast.

Poor old Zig Ziglar

My supervisor told me about Zig Ziglar, she said he was really old and coudln't remember what he had said so he repeated the same story four times at his motivational meeting yesterday that I skipped.  She said his daughter came up and was telling him what to say and that it was really sad. 

In other news, my boss Collin Coy is retiring tomorrow.  we went out to lunch with him today.  I think I will miss him, we have had our ups and downs here but I've learned a bunch from him and will miss his perspective on things here for sure.  It's a little meloncoly today.

Post 60!

Hey, I made it 60 posts, who's proud of me?  Well, I'm proud of myself so there.  Everyone else at work is at a motivational seminar with Zig Ziglar and Rudy Guiliani.  I opted to stay and be the lone ranger today.  I think I got the better end of the deal.

I almost missed updating today and completely missed yesterday.  Boy do I suck.

It's crappy and raining out, cold and yucky.  I finished making the invitations to Asher's Bday party.  Cause that's how I stay productive at work.  Yeeha!

Asher is boycotting sleeping in the mornings.  I am not a fan.

Not so good with the weekends

So, I find I can't update both weekend days, I just don't have the time.  Oh well, I'm still updating this as regularly as I can so I'm pretty proud. 

Today is mother's day but we celebrated yesterday.  Just have to figure out something fun for fathers day.  Hmm...

Dr visit

Yet again another doctor's visit for Asher where she can't do anything for him.  At least this time he is actually sic and not just cranky.  Being a parent is hard.  Oh, and just for the record, Asher is experiencing his first ever common cold courtesy of his good buddy Katya.  This post is snot colored in homage to his never ending snot fountain called his nose.

So, tell me why it's okay for a company to block a lane of the highway deadlocking traffic for a mile and a half without putting up an signs saying that they were blocking traffic and to change lanes?  I think they owe me the time that I missed at work for being unexpectedly late due to their lack of common courtesy.

I love the taste of unpredictable licks

Oh, that Prince is so sexy dirty with his lyrics.  Shame on him!  *blushes*

Anyway, gonna take the boat out at work today, how fun is that?  I know you are jealous. 

And in a sad note, Ryan's uncle Butch died two days ago, the funeral is Friday. I know it's just stupid supersition but I'm a little worried about things in threes....I wish I wasn't so stupid

So, looks like I might be moving to first shift at work.  All of us are moving to first shift.  I don't know what i think about that yet, i guess I'll wait and see. 

Asher is feeling a little better.  He woke up at the butt crack of dawn again, but part of it was thanks to the trash truck making lots of noise and beeping at 7:15 this morning.  Thanks guys!

It's nice because mondays are my tuesdays.  It's all kind of weird. 

Pretty sure Katya got Asher sick, he has been feverish and whiny and won't eat.  Hopefully he's feeling better soon. He is a crabby bear when he is sick.

I have the Gorrilaz song Super Fast Jelly Fish stuck in my head.  Thanks ryan. 

Yesterday was really good, we went down town in Hudson and went shopping, we went to teh cupcake store (I was disappointed, it was just a cupcake, nothing super duper.  Maybe i went on the wrong day), then both toy stores and I was introduced to Play Mobil toys, the awesomest toys ever.  I can't wait till asher is old enough to play with them.  I want the ghost pirate set.  And we went to Vertical Runner and I got a new pair of work shoes for half off, they were the last pair and in my size, it was meant to be.

no friday post

cause i was super busy and didn't have time.  Tough.  Feeling like a bad mom cause Asher wouldn't fall asleep with his bottle and now he is crying his heart out in his crib.  he almost fell asleep but he just wouldn't relax, his eyes said sleep but his arms and legs need a straight jacket.  I feel bad but at the same time i wonder if he will ever figure out how to fall asleep on his own, he just fights and cries and hurts himself.  

The joys of parenthood.
