Tell me something good.

I feel that I have been a bit negative, which, unfortunately, has been happening a lot lately. So instead of ranting about the nitwitted people in my office, I thought I would go somewhere positive. (Don't worry Carey, I'll save the rant for next week.)

Tell me something good about your week. It can be anything, big or small. Your favorite food was on sale at the grocery store, you got a good parking spot, you got a raise, you had fantastic sex, anything.

I’ll go first. I got in four workouts so far this week. I am headed to the gym again tonight and tomorrow for spinning. That? Pleases me to no end. *hops*

And in other news, Poopie is 8 months old today. I took her out early last night so that I could bring her up to bed with me to cuddle. DH found us later, sound asleep under the covers, both of our heads on my pillow, with me spooning her. I must kiss that dog 100 times a day. There is nothing like coming home with her wiggling like crazy, ecstatic to see me. Love that.

Your turn. Tell me something good.

Places that make you hate.

Why do we go there?

OT lately has made me absolutely abhor a few people. Why do I do that to myself? I am having a fine day and then I go to OT and I find myself wanting to rip my fucking hair out or worse yet, pop certain peeps heads off like dandelions tops. Are people seriously that obtuse? Other than checking with the weight loss carp and AI threads, I think I should stay away all together.

What places make your blood boil? Do you repeatedly go back? Why?

P.S. In the course of typing this entry, I went and looked again and ended up sending an angry pm. Oh goody. I am ready to fucking scream.

A story for Augie and Carey.

I tell my DH a lot of what goes on here and he used one of your expressions this past weekend.

He was craving flat rice noodles from the local Chinese joint. So he goes up there at 12:00 noon when they open only to find it to be closed. No lights on, door locked, etc. He’s terribly disappointed and decides to go directly next door to Subway. About 5 minutes later, he has his sub and comes out only to find the Chinese place is open for business, lights on, doors open, people behind the counter. When he came home, he told me the story and when he finished, he turned away and muttered, "damn sneaky chinese." He felt they were purposely withholding Chinese noodles from him and tricked him into getting a sub instead. *shakes head* Poor DH.

Decision to remain childless.

As many of you know, DH and I have decided to remain childless. I had a big hand in raising my brothers and really have no desire to be a mother after all the crap we've gone through with them.

HOWEVER, I worry constantly that something is going to happen to DH and then I will be alone. I can't even begin to describe how awful that would be. Last night, I actually began to rethink my decision. DH told me a long time ago that if I really, really wanted to have a child, he would be okay with that and that ultimately, it was my decision. Is that a bad reason to have a child?

I know it's Friday and this is a little heavy, but I was in tears last night over something happening to DH and not having a piece of him left behind. Hell, I'm in tears right now!

What area of your life...

..would you change or eliminate?

There has never been a time in my life where everything was in sync. Something is always amiss. If work is going well, my personal relationships are in the toilet. If personal relationships are going well, I'm fighting with my family. Everything else is going well? We have neighbor issues. ALL relationships going well? The chimney needs to be repaired at the tune of $5,000 cash that we don't have.

Pick one area of your lives and change it or elimiate it.

Me first. Work. If I could quit, I would. But since I can't, I'll start with firing fuckhead TEE (and kick her in the ass on the way out the door), hire two new people to decrease the workload on my counterpart and myself.

Your turn.

This is the dress.

This the dress that I must wear in 166 days. I am not ready to wear this dress yet which is why I am spending every waking moment I can in the gym. FYI, she's having us wear cream, not white.

Do you think Carey could get the zipper undone without using her hands? *grin*

Look at me posting pictures! Weeee!
