Now that all my son’s bad days are behind him, I am ready to kill him again. I finally talked to someone at the paper office today, and sure enough, he has been missing one customer every day. I am sure it is just that he is trying to learn the houses…..the lady at the paper place was a little short today about it though. When I went and met her, she was super nice, so I do not know if she is just having a bad morning, or what, but he needs to correct this problem now. It is just a matter of him memorizing the houses, which he thought he had, hence the one missing daily, mostly the same customer, so he did not remember that house. Problem fixed easy enough, hopefully. Then today, I asked him where his drop sheets are, and he informed me that he never takes them with him. So I asked about where his garbage is, and he told me he just leaves it where he picks up his papers. Really? REALLY?? So, today, I made him go and collect it, and told him that I want to see that every single day, along with his drop sheets, so I can see if he is missing people or not, and to ensure that his garbage is getting to the garbage…..This better be the end of this problem, cuz I do not want to deal with that lady again!
Today I am on my way off to the doctor. I see the doctor a lot, as I have a few chronic health problems, but today is different. 12 days ago, I got a cold. Fair enough, I do not get those too often, but when I do, I get hit, and hard. I had a fever and was super sick for the first four or five days….since then, I seem to be getting better except for one thing, my nose. I can blow and blow and blow and it never, ever stops. And it has killed my sense of smell and taste. I mean, killed it. I am so sad to have gone over a week without smelling or tasting anything. And I mean ANYTHING. I bought extra strong mint halls, which normally I cannot even handle, and I might as well have been sucking on a button. Its maddening. I just want to be able to taste something, anything. I miss food. I do not even want to eat certain things, cuz I almost feel like I am wasting it. Now, here is the biggest piss off to this problem. Two weeks ago, I had plans with a friend to go to Red Lobster for dinner, I had to cancel as something came up. Actually, it kinda pisses me off, cuz that thing that came up was also postponed to the next day, so we could have gone for dinner. Anyway, then I got sick, so we decided to wait, and then this week I told her, we would go next week, as I am not able to taste anything. Well, I saw a facebook update today that said that the promotion we were going to enjoy (festival of shrimp) ends on Thursday…..so, now we have planned to go Thursday, and I am going to pray I can taste some of it, or I am gonna be livid.
At this point, I am kinda assuming I have a sinus infection or something, and need antibiotics. I just hope whatever she gives me will make me feel better fast. I am so sick of being sick! There is a small deli across the street from the DR office too, and sometimes when I go, I will have lunch there and read a book, have some alone time that I crave more often than I get it, but it’s rather pointless when I cannot taste the food. And I am so sick of blowing my nose! I must own shares in the Kleenex company by now! I have been using the ones with Vicks in them, not that I would be able to tell by smell. I actually rubbed Vicks all over my nose and under it, and I could not tell at all, might as well have been Vaseline. I would love to be able to smell again too!
That is really all for today, there is so much more I could write about, but will have to wait for next time, as I must get ready to see the DR…..I will, however, leave you with a Top Ten for the week, as it has been a while since I did that.

What a month. My poor son has had life chew him up and spit him out this month…..man, and now I am kinda nervous that something else bad might be coming his way….I will always try my best to protect him all I can, but I can only do so much…..
It started two weeks ago, when I got a call from a newspaper service that my son delivered. It’s a rather long story, but the long and short of it is that they offered him a route that was NOT suitable for a kid, or teenager, or anyone that was not driving the route, to be honest…..he tried his best for several months, but they called him that day, and fired him. Needless to say, he was very upset. He has become very used to having his own spending money, and he was also upset feeling that he failed this. Two days later, I was able to get him another job with a different paper. One problem down, several more to go.
Last week, a week after this, he was walking home from school, and his iPod slipped out of his hand, and hit the sidewalk, and cracked. And I mean CRACKED, the screen was in a million pieces. I felt terrible for him, and he felt horrible too, of course. Those things are not cheap, I think he paid almost $400 for it, out of his own money, that he made, doing papers for hours and hours each week. The next day, I call Apple, and get a total jerk on the phone, that basically tells me that even though he has had it less than 90 days, and BOUGHT A CASE THAT WAS SUPPOSE TO PROTECT IT FROM THIS VERY THING his only option was to buy another one, which they offer at half price cuz this happens so often. Well, that did not sit well with me, so I looked around for an Apple store, as I heard they could do a screen repair. The closest one was an hour from where we live. Brilliant! So, I make an appointment at the ‘Genius Bar’ for a week later….which was today…..anyway, back to his week.
On Monday, his basketball got stolen from right in his classroom, RIGHT AT THE TEACHER’S DESK.
Then Wednesday, they had a book fair at school, so he brought his wallet. When it was time to go up to the book fair, his wallet was gone. Someone went right into his backpack and stole it. It contained $70 cash, his bank card, a future shop gift card, and a Dave and Buster’s card with about 1300 tickets on it. Not to mention that was a new wallet that I just bought him for Christmas. Unfortunately, He did not tell anyone while he was at school, as he was afraid that he would cause a problem, to come home and find it sitting on the table or something. When I got home, he told me, and I emailed the school, the next morning I talked to the Principal, but of course, once it leaves the school, it’s too late to get it back. I felt really terrible for him again.
The next day, I told him to head to the bank to get a new bank card. So he walked there after school. I was at work. He called me when he got home, to tell me that he got his new card, and went into the restaurant next door to the bank to get himself some dinner since I was sick and working late, and the kids were on their own for dinner. On his walk home, he fell in the mud, got covered in it, and his dinner ended up all in it too. My heart was just breaking for him at this point, I mean, how much can one 13 year old take??
Today, I went to the Apple store, and got his iPod replaced, for free (thank God), so, that is good. The police came, and took a report about his wallet, and talked to his class. But you all know, as well as I, that his wallet is gone forever. He found his basketball today out in the field behind the school, so that is good. And I got him some dinner on the way home, lol, just cause.
The thing too, is that my son is a really good kid. He has worked his hardest his whole life. Sure he messes up things every now and again like any kid, or any person in general, but overall, he is a really good kid. He never gets in trouble at school, I have never had any major problems with him here at home, he is a good student, and hard worker and very loving and giving. He gets up every morning at 5:30am to deliver papers six days a week, and plays on school sports teams, and maintains an A & B grade average....which is no small feat for a kid with ADHD. He also does his chores at home without problems, and is very polite and well mannered (sometimes a little too much if you ask me). Its just hard to see such a hard working kid get such a shit deal sometimes. Esp all at once in a two week period like that.
Now, the only thing left that is bothering me, the paper route he has now is going good, but they called first thing this morning, and I have no idea why. I know that they are affiliated with the one he got fired from, so I hope nothing weird is happening that way. When I got home at noon, I called back, and then called another 50 times during the afternoon, and could not get hold of anyone! Maddening. For someone with an anxiety disorder like mine, it will never leave all weekend it will be in the forefront of my mind. It could be any number of things they are calling about, but right away my mind goes to the worse one. If I get any more bad news for my son, I do not think I will be able to handle it, never mind him. Although, I do have the argument that the first route was SO not suitable, and he has been doing good on this one, also, he had a similar route for another paper that he did successfully for a year, until it self-dissolved……I am just so irritated that I could not get anyone on the phone the entire afternoon to put my mind to rest….oh well, I guess all I can do is hope for the best…..have a great long weekend everyone!
Friday, May 6, 2011
Wow, its been like two weeks since I wrote a blog….this past week has been an INSANE week…..in fact, insane does not even begin to cover it…..I have had more problems and stress than I care to count for one week…..I am just hoping it’s over now…..tomorrow, I am doing as little as possible….I am gonna wake up, finish this blog….fuck around online, cook myself some brunch….watch some TV….go for a walk if it is nice…..cook dinner, have a shower, read for a while, and go to bed early…..YES, it’s gonna be a great day! I just wanna forget this last eight days even happened…….
I went shopping over the weekend…..did alright, but nowhere near my best….saved about $85.00 between ad matching and coupons. My two Jamaican guys think I am a nutball…..but they both love me best….so that is all that matters….lol. It was another late night too, for some reason, it seems they only work late on shopping week…..O also told the girl that shopping with me is torture…..to which, I replied, of course, that torture was my specialty…..Hahahaha
The girl I speak about, is one that I have been training, off and on, for a few years now. Because of her lack of experience, and the constant strain of illness and chaos that has been my life….and the fact that she always has had a secondary partner….it’s been more off than on. As of late, it has been heating up a tad again….
She sells Epi Cure products. I wanted to have a party last fall. The rep I knew was having a hard time coming at the time I needed her. Then I found out this girl sold it as well, so I booked the party with her instead…..all went well, and we have been talking more…..I have told her I do not care for her having secondary partners….I like to have several partners at once but am not a fan of sharing myself…..well, sometimes it’s fun, and sometimes ok but sometimes it just gets in the way….like with this girl. Well, over the course of the last while, this girl has made some bad choices. She left me waiting on her once, which was not that big a deal, esp since she was not the driver….but I do not like to be kept waiting, esp for slaves.
However, the bigger mistake, by far, was outward disregard for my rules. I have explained to her, like any others I am around that there is certain behavior I do not care for from a slave, that I find very unbecoming and rather inappropriate. One of these is swearing. I swear, a lot, maybe more than the average person. But I am aware that in certain places, it is not appropriate. That goes for slaves as well. However they want to chat amongst themselves or whenever I am not around, I really could not care less, BUT I do not think it is appropriate to hear it coming from a slave’s mouth, so I do not want to hear it when I am around. One night, we were chatting online, and she just totally disregarded this matter. I was shocked to say the least, and this is when I realized that even if she was not mine, I needed to make sure she still remembered her place, or this was just going to snowball. It would not be good for either of us, if I let it go so far that it caused problems. As of now, she has written me out lines, and is doing a daily assignment until I see her next Friday to give her a more direct and swift punishment. That should put the matter to rest, I do not think she will make the same mistake twice. Once all that is done and over, I shall post some of her assignments for my readers to see.
This girl really has no idea what she is in for. She will not leave here without blood, sweat and tears. I will make sure she understands what I expect and does not just do as she pleases with me again. She is rather inexperienced, I think that that vast majority of her experience has been with me, and as I said earlier, we have not seen each other that much….so, what happens Friday will not be so much what I plan to give out. It will more so depend on how much she can take……but I will make sure she suffers enough that she will not want to repeat this, and that she does not forget any time soon.
One of the funniest parts of this is that her ex husband is also on fetlife and has read her notes and such, and just thinks it’s hilarious, he cannot stop laughing about it, and even offered to take photos for me. LOL
Well, its Friday now, and I had the worse sleep ever…..stupid construction guys working on the balconies, first thing in the morning, when it was already suppose to be done……I was in bed until after 11am. Mostly because I was being woken up every ten minutes to them working and/or talking, so the sleep was so broken it was crappy…..I had the STRANGEST dream too……
My sister is on her way to Ghana, Africa, right now as I type this. She is going with 9 other people from her work for two weeks to teach in a school and work in an orphanage….she is an avid traveler and has been to every single continent in the world now after this trip. I always worry when she is away, even though we are not close, I still love her and her family. And she has two small children, and is the families breadwinner……travel makes me nervous, so I do not do it myself, but even her doing it is enough to cause me stress……good luck to her though, what an amazing experience and awesome thing to do.
It’s been a pretty big news week as well. With our Canadian elections and Osama being killed. Our election pissed me off to no end. First off all, it upsets me that Canadians are so stupid to trust our country to someone like Harper. WTF is wrong with us, guys?? This guy wants use to become the US, and while I love my sister and many other Americans, and while I love the states in general, and am glad we are right beside them, I do NOT want to be them. If I wanted to be American, I would move to the states, so I do not need the states coming here…..this guy wants more or bigger prisons, he wants to take away gay rights, and buy fighter jets…..and lock up pot smokers……and fuck us all up the ass as hard as possible while not using lube to save on costs, WTF people??? I am not the only one upset either….let me share with you a few of my favorite status messages from the night of the election from facebook,……
Congrats, Canada; you are an idiot. Watch what happens next..
~Conservatives are like Nickelback. I don't know anyone who likes them but they always seem to do well.~
every Canadian should protest till Harper is behind the bars he supports so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Harper again people... seriously???" "Do you need him to come to your house and rob you, before you realize he's a crook?" lol...
Welcome, Canada, to the United States of America. Idiots...
I just knew the pale zombie with Lego hair would win again....
The United States are liberal and Canada is conservative? Yeah definitely didn't see that coming.
As you can see, I am far from the last person upset about this. Not only am I upset that this nutball has another four years to fuck us all over, but I never realized until this election, how messed up our voting system is…..how is it possible that we have a MAJORITY government that only 39% of us voted for? That in itself is fucking retarded…..seriously…..it would take too long to explain our voting system here to a non Canadian, but it’s stupid. The long and short of it is this, each city votes in a MP, and then for every seat or MP that party wins, its another vote for the Prime Minister, basically. So, to take it into small numbers to understand, the vote would look like this:
City A has 4 residents, 2 vote CON, 1 votes LIB, and 1 votes NDP….giving CON 1 seat.
City B has 5 residents, 3 vote CON, 1 votes LIB, and 1 votes NDP…..giving CON 1 seat.
City C is bigger, and has 20 residents, 5 vote CON, 3 vote LIB and 12 vote NDP….giving NDP 1 seat.
As you can see, NDP got 14 out of 29 votes, and CON only received 10 out of the 29 votes, but because CON won two of the three seats, there is a CON majority, and a CON Prime Minister…..fucking stupid…..there is something wrong with our system when we have a majority government that does NOT represent a majority of Canadians……
The next major news story this week is the demise of bin Laden. This coverage has been bothering me as well…..I think it is great that we got him, and I do not disagree with them killing him, he was dangerous, and needed to be stopped….period.
What does bother me, however, is all the after effect. First of all, as a Christian, I do not celebrate ANYONE’s death. Secondly, do you all really think it is wise to start making a big song and dance out of the whole thing? Do you not think there is not a bunch of other nut cases dying to take his place? We had to get him, we got him, now shut up about it. Let’s not make a mockery of this whole situation. Let’s not forget the real issue at hand which is those 3000+ people that lost their lives almost ten years ago, let us not forget that is who it is really about. And as far as releasing the photos of the body, I think Obama made the right choice. The media is not entitled to everything, and again, do you not think that might piss someone off? Also, I do not want my children seeing that, and I do not want anyone else’s children seeing that either…..why do we need to see that?? And for those saying that perhaps Obama is lying, I think that is so stupid, I HAVE to reply. bin Laden’s favorite thing to do all these years was letting out tapes about how stupid the US is….do you think Obama would take that chance, so a tape could be released next week?? Really? REALLY??
Of course, the one thing I did not talk about yet was the Royal Wedding….and you know why….cuz I DON’T FUCKING CARE. Seriously, people all over the world get married every single day…..get over it…..it’s not like William even did anything to be famous, he was just born into it, and Kate slept her way into it, big fucking deal. I will say though, that I would have just been indifferent to the whole thing, except for the fact that the day before the wedding, over 300 people died in the US from tornados, and you could not find coverage for that to save your life. Really CNN? REALLY?? Shame.
Well that is all for now, dear readers, I do hope you enjoyed my rants and stories this time along…..
