It feels so good to have two days off in a row. But, I had to meet my son at the emergency room because he was riding on a go-cart and got a deep gash in his leg. He had to get three staples and a tetanus shot. Then he went on to football practice. Good thing I was off today since I usually work on Wednesdays.

The weather had been feeling so good and now it is hot again. At least it is not stifling hot.

My grand-daughter starts headstart tomorrow. I can't believe she is three already. They grow up so fast. My mother and I went to take her a new outfit to wear to school tomorrow. I told her mother they need to get their yard cut before a snake comes up. Low and behold she said she came home and a snake was in her house right by the front door. I probably would have died. Snakes are the most terrifying thing to me. I can't even look at one in a book! So scary and frightening. uh that just gives me the creeps.

Anyway, I guess I will go and finish cooking porkchops. Yummy.

I am so tired. Been staying up to 2 and 3 in the morning and sleeping until about 11 am. Been off work for the last four days and have to get back on schedule. Oh well, got my new ipod today from my dynamic rewards from the job. It is so tiny, but in my favorite color purple. Guess I will go download some songs now and try to get to sleep a little earlier tonight.

Excessively hot day.
The weather man said today was an excessively hot day in Oklahoma. I really believe he was right. Went out to get in the car and heat took by breath away and everything was blistering hot in the car! Ok.I just don't understand how anyone can say you forgot and leave your 8 month old baby in a 95 degree car! The mother said she had been busy all day and forgot her baby. I just don't get that. You may lock your keys in the car, forget your purse etc. but not your baby. Some people.

Today at work was so long. I was so not feeling the customers. After only 4 hours of sleep I lived off of caffeine all day. I will be going to bed very soon. Just got through watching a movie called Deja Vue. Really interesting.

Oh well, sleep is overtaking me.

Fun night
I can't believe that I am still awake. Just got home about 3 a.m. Went to eat at Chili's with my 2 aunts and two cousins. Food was delicious. Had tortilla soup and the chicken fried steak dinner. After eating the delicious soup of course I could not eat my chicken fried steak. But the best part was the two strawberry daiquiris that I had. Oh they were so good! Had not had a drink in about two years. Not that I was ever much of a drinker. Plus since I am a diabetic alcohol is not high on my list.

After dinner we dropped the kids at home and decided to go to the casino. I knew I should not have went. Did nothing but lose money and just now getting home. That's why I do not go but maybe once or twice a year.

I did get a air conditioner so it is no longer 100 degrees in my house. It is just a small unit but it helps.

Oh well, I guess I better get some sleep since I have to get up and go to work today. . Lack of sleep will make me a bad customer service rep today.

Still hot!
Today was my off day. Stayed at home all day under the fan. Watched t.v. and that's about it. I hate my off days are split up. Back to work tomorrow. Wish I had something sweet to eat. Oh well, tomorrow is payday. Back to watching t.v. Too hot to do anything else.

Sunday is my long day at work. I work 15 hours. 9am to midnight. My knee has been hurting so bad. Took some anti-inflammatory medicine. Hope I can sleep better than I did last night. Plus I don't have my grand-daughter in the bed with me tonight so that makes a difference. She won't sleep by herself and she is 17 months old. She is with my mother tonight. Oh well, off to bed I go.

I have been working 12, 14 nad 15 hour days. Tonight I go in at midnight and I am supposed to get off work at 8am. But, that is no guarantee. I need the money right now because I am behind in my house payments and don't want to lose the house. So I have been very stressed lately. Then my mother calls and my 20 year old son is in jail for two city warrants for unpaid tickets. The cash bodn only is 900 dollars or he can stay until October 25. He will just have to stay. He could have paid those tickets. I am tired of bailing him out of trouble. At least I know where he is at. Give him time to think and want to get his life together.

Had to go pick up my grand-daughter from daycare this morning because she was sick. She came home with me and slept almost all day. I should have been sleeping also. I am going to try and get a nap in before I go to work tonight. Hope everyone had a good evening.

I am up late tonight. It is really storming outside. Hope it stops before I have to leave for work in the morning. I hate to drive on the highway in the rain.

Finally things are leveling out on the job front. I am getting better at doing customer service and being able to answer customers questions. Still having a bit of trouble with the technical issues but that will come with time. As long as I can activate peoples phones and take payment, read their bills, provision certain features in their phones etc the technical issues I will just send to tech support.

I got my vacation schedule back and I did get the week off for Christmas. I was really surprised since we go by seniority and we have to bid on days we want off and our vacation time.

Been having trouble with my eyes again. Went to the eye doctor and the pressure was up in both eyes. Cornea transplants only las about ten years. I go back next week. Hopefully the pressue will be better.Well I guess I better go to bed. Have training most of the day tomorrow. Then off Friday. I am ready for my day off.

Happy Valentine's Day!
I hope everyone has a Happy Valentine's Day.

Even though me and my husband or still seperated he sent me a dozen roses and a balloon. That was nice. They are so pretty.

Everyone try and enjoy the day.

Went and paid and mailed out bills today. The lottery started in Oklahoma on Wednesday. I'm not too excited. But if there was a guarantee that I would win that would be a different story. There are only scratch off tickets right now. The Big Bounce or whatever they are calling it where you pick the numbers or have them picked for you starts next month. Now I might buy one of those.

Me and the husband went out and ate dinner tonight at this place in Weatherford called Willie's. We had the ribs. They were really good. Then on the way home he wanted to go to the smokeshop and get him some cigarettes. So then we went in the casino. I lost of course. I play twenty dollars and I am ready to go. He broke even.

Came home and played my new Sims2 Nightlife on the laptop while he was supposed to be watching a movie called Sahara. I am in the living room on the other computer on lj and the movie is watching him.

Got some Halloween decorations out on the porch. Even though we live in apartments we have a huge porch. It is very private if you live upstairs which we do. Hung out some pumpkin lights and other decorations.

Well he just woke up when the movie went off.

Guess I will close now. Hope everyone has a good weekend.

Was the sub today in a 5th grade language arts class. The kids were pretty good. You will always have the usual cut-ups. Now I think I will go and take a nap.

Subbed at the Middle School today. Started out helping in the library. Then watched the art class for a little while. Then showed a film to the band class and then spent the last three hours in the 7the grade English class. Kids were pretty good. They were hyped up because tonight was the High School homecoming. Which they won 38 to 10. They are a class A team. And they are 6 and 0. This is a real football town. Now I am waiting to go pick up Aaron from something called the overtime party which ends about 11:30. I am ready to go to bed. Plus it is 50 degrees so I am ready to get under the covers.

Hope everyone has a good weekend.

The only thing I have to say about the Katrina disaster is this. I have a friend that moved from Louisiana to Oklahoma some years ago. I asked what would bring her and her family to Oklahoma. She stated that it is a very poor state. Jobs are hard to find. That being said people keep saying why did they not leave? Probably because alot of the people had no money or transportation. These people have been through enough. It is easy for people to voice their opinions when they are sitting in their nice comfy homes. This whole situation makes me sick. Yes there are good people and their are bad people but unless you have been through what they have don't be so quick to judge. Everyone is not out to beat the system.

I'm up late tonight or should I say this morning. Husband had to go to Oklahoma City. So he is pulling an allnighter. I don't work anymore. My knee was hurting so bad I could barely walk. I know eventually I will have to have surgery. I have injured my right knee too many times. It even hurts when I lay down. The only thing that helps is naproxen. And that just dulls the pain. I wasn't feeling too good so the husband sent me some flowers. Really pretty roses.

My son Darren starts work this morning. Thank God. He was needing a job really bad. Hopefully he will keep this job. He needs to so he can take care of his baby.

Guess I will turn in now.
