Holy CrAp Have I Been Busy!

Standard

My blog notifications told me that someone “liked” one of my posts yesterday, which made me check my stats.  I found that there have been days when NO ONE VISITED ME!  This is horrible, just horrible!  Then I realized that I have been so stinking busy that I haven’t had time (or inclination) to blog in a while.  So, here’s an update on what’s been going on:

Diet Week 10 (or whatever the hell it is) – I’ve lost 15 lbs!  It is really hard, particularly when I’m doing fun stuff like baking apple pies (which I managed not to eat whole, thankyouverymuch…I left that to the Hubster.  He didn’t mind.)  It’s really awesome to have to wear a belt to hold up my pants. Pretty soon, I’ll have to go shopping!  Woot!

Death and Illness – Keeping up with tracking WW points has been rough this past week.  Sadly, the kids’ grandmother passed away on Wednesday, which led to a quickie visit to PA for the funeral on Friday.  This is just six months after their dad died, so it’s been a rough year for the kiddos.  On top of that, my uncle has not been well and it’s been touch and go for a couple of weeks.  I said at one point that it seems everyone I know is either unemployed or sick.  Your odds are not good if you know me.  If you just read my blog, you’ll probably escape with a mild cold and missing a day of work.  Lucky you.

Employment – Speaking of unemployment, after quitting my job in a very dramatic fashion, last week I started temping  for an agency while I keep looking for regular work.  My first temp job is sorting and tracking campaign contributions for the Romney campaign!  I think my mother summed this up really well when she simply said “karma”.  I’m so anti-Romney, I think I’d rather see Mickey Mouse in the White House than elect Romney.  Wait, that’s pretty much the same thing, isn’t it? (Which reminds me…I haven’t posted a political rant in a while.  Keep your eyes peeled for one soon.  I’ve got one simmering and if I don’t get it out soon, it’s going to stink like rotten eggs.)

Squirrels – And on a completely random and unrelated note, THEY’RE BACK!  It seems that the dry summer has seriously put a dent in the squirrel population and there have been far too few of the little critters to keep me sufficiently amused for quite a while.  However, the cooler weather has brought them out, looking for their winter nutty goodness, to my unconcealable delight.  Yesterday, I sat for MINUTES watching one sneak attack a group of band students, darting between trees and running up the backside as to remain virtually invisible.  (They are sneaky little critters, those squirrels).  I was utterly entertained and I’m sure I appeared quite mad as I sat giggling to myself for no apparent reason.  I guess the squirrels aren’t’ the only ones who are a little nuts.  😀

  1. 1) My mother is not dead. If she is, she’s got a computer and internet access on the other side.
    2) If Mickey Mouse is in the White House, then Romney is going to lose the election to Micky Mouse. Yeah…that’ll look real good on his resume.
    3) I can post a political rant if I want. It’s MY blog! That’s the beauty of it. No one can tell me to shut up. 😀 Besides, the one or two political bits I did had record high readership. They’re still getting hits. So, someone out there must agree with me.
    4) Dave….<3 You'll get the hang of it, dude. lol

  2. You HAVE been busy!

    So sorry about the passing of the kid’s grandmother 😦 and hope your uncle gets better soon

    Wonderful about losing 15 kilos (wow) 😀

    Looking forward to the political rant 😉

  3. If Mickey Mouse gets re-elected, what will that say about this country? I’ll tell you what it will say…that there are a whole lot of people out there who don’t have a clue. Also, if you’re political rants get a lot of hits, it may be because a lot of people like to rant at the computer like most people rant at the tv.Just sayin’. Luv ya. 🙂
