 Okay...so seems like a bunch of things have happened, P's dad thought he was having some kidney problems thankfully its just two cracked ribs from his fall. Last night I had to go to a meeting with the boy as he's going to Europe in June and they are having some planning meetings. It's pretty uplifting to see him excited about something like this.

On other bad news, I am no longer being considered for one of the positions I applied for, it's the one I had the telephone interview for. FINE, I didn't want to work there anyways! Who cares if I never get another stupid job in a stupid library again! Who cares if I wasted 18K+ on a stupid degree that I won't ever get to use. piss off everybody...

Sounds like I'm angry but really I'm not, I'm really feeling more apathic than anything.

I did realize what I want though...

I want to go to a motel for the weekend, one that won't have too many people at it. I want to swim in the pool, relax in the sauna and soak in the hot tub. I want fresh healthy food brought to me and lotion for my dry dry skin. Maybe read, watch a movie, cuddle with my sweetie, sleep in and then I want to come home to my bathroom repaired and I don't care what it will look like (tile or surround).

I had to work late last night, with about an hour left for my shift, I decided that I better prepare for my interview that was today at 8am. The challenge is that it's for a school that is 60 miles (one way) for a one year temp position. Advantages are that it's only 5 miles from P's house. I really liked the campus as it's pretty secluded. They have a larger population of non-trad and ESL students which is appealing to me. The other nice thing is that I would be able to learn some skills other than reference. Apparently all librarians learn everything because you're often on alone (with student worker help).  I think I would enjoy it, continue to expand the people that I know in the library community and maintain my faculty status. If I stayed at P's house twice a week, the mileage would actually be shorter. The boy is 15, I wonder if it would be okay to leave him home alone so regularly?

I should probably just wait and see, perhaps they won't even offer it to me, but I felt it went well.  I'm still waiting for my current job to offer me something more too. 

So last night I worked until 9pm, stayed until 10pm preparing and then was home by 11pm. I finally fell asleep sometime near midnight and was up by 5am to leave the house by 6am (I wasn't sure about the traffic). P printed my handout that I created for the interview and so we met up at the parking lot of CVS. After the interview, I drove to work and have to be at the desk until 4pm. Driving home to P and then we're going to the Pride Art show opening with her son R.

Tomorrow we will be hosting our couple's group at my mom's house and then (maybe) going to P's Aunt's birthday party.

Sunday is dad's day and he will be coming to Buffalo for a picnic lunch and time by the lake.

The boy had his first behind the wheel hour today. He almost had to miss it because he couldn't find his wallet that had his permit in it. It took him at least an hour before he discovered it underneath the chair by his computer. He'll be going to his Dad's this weekend, back on Sunday probably in time to celebrate Dad's day with my Dad.

back to work, still sick and I've not gotten good sleep the last 3 nights. I sure hope that it doesn't make sick worse, but I'm sure it will.

The boy has been a pain in the butt. He didn't tell me he wasn't going to be home last Thursday after school because they had practice for his performance. I told him he was going to get a consequence and gave him the chance to come up with one for himself. He didn't and he also disputed the issue of having a consequence. First his excuse was that he *had* told me which wasn't true (he told me about Wednesday not Thursday) then he said he *forgot* but I told him that doesn't excuse him from consequences. As I'm so tired of dealing with consequences with him, I didn't know what to do. If you remember the debacle of him cleaning his room this weekend, he thought that was part of his consequences (ahh...no, normal responsiblities kiddo!) I also took his computer and decided that on Monday he was grounded (after he asked to go to his friend's house). He took it upon himself to leave to his friend's house even though I told him he was grounded. I told him that if he wasn't going to follow my rules, he could live somewhere else. (this was on the phone talking to him while he was at his friend's house). He said he needed time to think and etc. when he said he wasn't going to come home, I told him that I was going to pick him up. P had a dr appt which I was taking her to and he proved himself untrustworthy and was going to come with us. I went and picked him up and took him with. I don't think he liked it too much but what can you do? Surprisingly he wasn't *that* bad. We ended up doing a bunch of errands and got home very late because the car broke down.

The car broke down (I don't know why) and so we sat at the side of the road in 10 degree weather. Fortunately we were about 20 miles from home, my lovely sis picked us up and we sat waiting for the tow truck in her warm car. She was happy to do it as P has rescued her before when her car was towed. We haven't heard about the car yet (it was towed to a garage where I've purchased many of my cars that I've owned for the last few years, I trust them and they were just a few miles the other way).

Did I tell you I was back to work? It's workshop days and so I need to pay attention and not fall asleep, yesterday not too bad but today is hard.

Sunday actually turned out to be a pretty good day. P slept in until about noon. I had a breakdown feeling overwhelmed with the boy being so obstinate. I did get him to finally start doing something by agreeing to split the dishes (he did one sinkful and I did the other). As I went first, he worked on the basement. After I was done with the dishes, he started with his half and I worked on the basement. I got that mostly cleaned up.

P worked on the bedroom, she had lots of great ideas and did a really good job cleaning. She also talked about ways of making it better. It was really nice of her and I felt taken care of, this is very hard for me. She also talked about what she was going to do after the bedroom and that she was going to make dinner. I thought it was a little optimistic and I was correct. She did a great job of moving things around in the bedroom and coming up with some great ideas but didn't get past the bedroom. She did have the idea for dinner which I ran out to buy the stuff and proceeded to cook it for her. It felt very good to have her at my back.

Today is my late day. I went to the chiropractor and had a very good appointment. Dentist for me and the boy (yeah, no cavities) and lunch. He ate a regular sized quiznos sub and breadbowl chili. He tried the salad but thought the vinaigrette dressing was too vinegery.

I got to work late so I missed the faculty meeting which was really okay for me.

I'm always sleepy during my late days.

love it

I love being able to sleep until I wake up. I love that I can take my time putzing this morning and do nothing if I want to. Actually I'm probably going to go work out (and hope that no one else is there). Then I'll come home and take a nice shower before getting ready for the meal at my sister's. We'll likely play cards and games all night long, eat too much and the boy will be picked up by his father to go shopping. He's going to take him over night and return him when they are done shopping.

I spoke to his father to ensure we didn't duplicate gifts. He's going to be purchasing him a video camera that takes pictures. I was going to get him a camera but now it seems silly. I'll likely get him a really nice bike bag, I caught him eyeing one of those recently. I think I'll also take him shopping in the city when things have died down. His father tends to go overboard in my opinion, last year it was a computer. My goal is to invest in him in terms of time versus shower him with presents. My job is to "grow" him with good skills and abilities instead of be his "best friend" with gifts.

Anyways, I hope you are all having a day exactly how you want it (or at least parts of it)

My boy

Pardon me being so busy to update my blog. I've been attending the state conference which has had some really good things come out of, personal and professional.

I better run pretty soon, they're having the awards dinner. Never turn down a free meal!

Yeah, driving home from work I got pulled over for headlight and brake light out. I knew about the brake light but the headlight was new. I hate dealing with that kind of stuff. Yesterday morning for whatever reason (weather?) I decided that I didn't want to be an adult anymore and wanted to be a kid. I want someone else to take care of me for a bit so I can just be. I don't want to worry about the camera the boy lost, replacing the lightbulbs in the car or cleaning the house. Monday nite I talked with P about maybe having people over for a fire on Saturday night. This would mean that I'd have to clean the house but when I got home, I was overwhelmed with the mess. The boy is in a power struggle over cleaning his room, he's not doing it and I've taken the internet from him. ARGH!

P left for her Dr appointment today, she's going back half days starting June 5th. I know that she's happy about that. She also has to have ANOTHER round of antibiotics because the Dr. says that she's still got some fluid up there. 

I rode my bike into town, 8 miles round trip, to return some DVDs and pick some more up so that I can watch them while I'm doing laundry. I can tell how out of shape that I am, I did the same ride last year and it wasn't too bad, I think I'm going to be in pain later.

The boy is being a HUGE pain in the butt. He's got 2 days left of school and has a report on Russia that is late. He's playing this power game about how I should trust him to get it done despite the fact that he's only playing video games when ever I walk by. 

I really want to go to sleep but I've got to get SOME laundry done. I'm going to also have to take the ethernet cables from the computers so the boy doesn't try to go online.

My sister (the one who can be really mean) ended up having her car towed. She works downtown (hour away) and she tried to call both parents but she wasn't able to get a hold of either of them. After she called me, I offered to go pick her up and take her to the impound lot. I think she was surprised that I was willing to do that for her. After I told P about it, she offered to do it. I'd be totally up for it and okay doing it but I've only had an hour of sleep since yesterday.

It also means that P's on her way here....Grin

The boy took off to go be with a friend for a couple of hours. He's going to his Dad's tomorrow and will be back on Sunday afternoon. I don't think he's going to do anything for mom's day, I don't expect it but sometimes I feel taken for granted. I sent my own mother an email greeting.

I'm not sure what the weekend will bring other than I'm going to coffee with the girls on Sunday afternoon.

I'm also feeling pretty good because I've only got 4 more days of work until I've got 2 months off! I've got a plan to get on track with things, let's hope I can do it.

Much too busy to keep updated. I've started my job and I think I'm going to enjoy it. I know that I'm driving less and working about the same, it's just more compact. Monday was only 5-8p. I used to leave for my Tuesday and Thursday job around 7:30am to get there by 9am and left by 3pm to be back to my evening job that was 5-8p. Wednesday I was leaving at noon to work 1p-9p, home by 10pm. Friday I'd leave the house by 7am to work 8-4p then home by 5pm or so. Every other Saturday I'd work 10-2p.
Until Tuesday, now I work 8-4 except for Thursdays 1-9p and one Saturday 10-6p.

I'm going to hopefully be able to get my boy to improve his grades. I just got his report card, D in shop, D+ (drop from B- last quarter) in English, C (drop from B last quarter) in Science, C+ in Math (increase over his incomplete), B- in Science (drop from B) and A in Phy Ed and Band (both increases). I've told him he's going to be limited to 1 hour of screens after his homework is done until he can maintain a B average.

I also feel a little out of sorts, like I've got so much to do around the house, laundry and etc. I just don't want to do it...but what do I want to do? I don't even know.

I should go eat dinner. My stomach is hungry but my mouth is not.
