Time? Why is there never enough?



Update my blog? Does anyone even really care, I wonder to myself....do I care? Well, hell yes I care...I figured my small misniscule hand full of readers might be wondering where the heck little ol' Dixie is....I haven't posted in oh...three/four days...the reason, you ask?

I have nothing....I mean, if you want a run down, timeline, whatever of my past few days, well...I must say you would be sorely disappointed. There is nothing noteworthy....every day, even this past weekend, has went by in a blur...get up, go to work, deal with my shitty job all day, go home, prepare dinner, go for my hour walk/run, home to clean up, shower, spend time with kids/hubby, then to bed, get up wash, rinse and repeat.

Seriously....Friday night was drop off Aaron (8 yr old) with his dad,(Max was already with Grandma), come home after a horrible day at work, and imbibe in a large 1/2 bottle of chardonnay....oh, and I watched all of Season 3 of Weeds....Love that show! If you haven't seen it, please rent it, watch it, all three seasons...seriously, you will be addicted, rather quickly....I promise. It is so funny, drama filled, the plot keeps you on the edge of your seat.

Um...Saturday, what happened Saturday...oh! The usual...get nails/pedicure done...hubby and I went to Hell-Mart...grabbed lunch at the Subway in the Hell mart...interesting to sit and watch people come in/go out of the store....people watching is a favorite past time of mine....seriously...I wished I had brought my camera and took some pictures...where is a camera phone when you need one...I could have done some serious secret squirrel damage, which would have been hilarious...you would have agreed..trust a chick on this! Hubby slept Saturday afternoon for awhile...I watched more weeds....then we went to the Dancing in the Streets festival, here in our town..well actually we live outside of Lafayette on the East side...and the festival was in West Lafayette...what kind of festival was it you ask?
Ummmm...well, there were classic cars, lined up and down the main streets, which were blocked off and there were a lot of different bands playing..mostly 70's and 80's music...we met up with some of my hubby's friends..well, actually a Guy Friend (D)...who came with his wife...she is a strange one...(picture me twirling a finger round and round my head, on one side...um, crazy much?)in case he were to read my blog...I won't say anymore about that subject...anyway, here is the link to Dancing in the Streets.....There was also food vendors from local restuarants....after a half hour or so...I was hungry, so I grabbed a sandwich, some wine....walked around a lot, listened to a little music, Saw a transvestite...very simalar to this picture...

Except it had longer blond hair, was wearing a white tankini and mini skirt, white high heels...everyone, and I mean everyone, was turning around, doing a double take at this person...as we were following behind them...watching peoples reactions, hubby would turn around to the watching people, and say, "Yep, you're right, it's a chick with a dick!"...OMG...I was so embarrassed...and I so didn't want this person to hear us....with the high heels on, they had to be at least 6 ft 4 and I so didn't want to get in a fight with a transvestite..luckily, they exited ahead of us, we didn't see them again...anywho...we stopped for a coke and
then we left...went to a couple local bars, ended our night fairly early....I only had a couple glasses of wine, the remainder of the night, I drank diet coke...I would say at least five large diet cokes, I was so wired when we got home, I couldn't sleep...by six a.m. Sunday morning, I was near tears..I was so tired, couldn't go to sleep to save my life..so, I umm...took 2 sleeping pills...and slept until five p.m. that Sunday afternoon..I was so pissed at myself..my day was gone! Hubby had slept too..so, we finally rousted ourselves out of our sleep induced coma and dressed and went for dinner...

Oh, yeah....the fair is in town. Yay! Just kidding...I hate the fair, but Sunday evening, after dinner...hubby had this bright idea...let's go kill an hour and walk around and smell pig poop....Ewwww....great place to people watch...again, no camera...I know if I am going to be a serious and entertaining blogger...I am going to have to start carrying that damned camera with me everywhere! It would have added such enlightment and entertainment to this post....

On another note...work is kicking me in the nether regions...I have posted about how much I hate my job...things have not changed on that front...just gotten worse. I won't elaborate as to the reasons, just in case anyone from work finds my blog, and reads it...I don't want to get dooced....I want to quit, not be fired. So, I will save my defamation of my "co-workers" and this ridiculous excuse for a job until I do quit...I am currently updating my resume' and I am a lookin'....so, thus the reason I have had no time to blog....

Things can only go up, right? As far as the job looking goes? Hubby doesn't want me to quit this job..he basically just wants me to "deal"....that is unfair, because he likes his job, and he makes good money...I on the other hand, want to work somewhere fun, that pays well, and where I can make friends...the people here hate me....maybe, hate is too strong of a word, but they don't go out of their way to befriend me..yes, I have tried...and been shot down...so, screw em'...and I will find another job.

Well..time for lunch...so, I gotta fly....

I was shopping in Ann Taylor once when I noticed the "lady" next to me was actually a man! So hard NOT to stare!

First it is easier to say than do. . . . but I would not let the office biatches run my life. . . . I would stay in their face and act. . . . note act. . . . like this is the best job you've ever had and that you are not going anywhere. . . . women are clickish. . . . don't let them get the better of you. Again I repeat. . . easy for me to say. . . . harder for me to do.
Ciao

I'm sorry your job is sucking some serious pond sludge right now. But congrats on trying to get out of there!

Diva..I know...it is hard not to stare. I know they are really trying hard to pass themselves off as a woman, serious gender issues, I guess....but, seriously, don't they know how ridiculous they look?
They are truly not fooling anyone.

Sicilian...honey, you sound so much like my husband, but...it is easier said than done. I get my feelings hurt very easily, and I have never had such a hard time fitting in anyhwhere before. Plus, I am used to being the boss, not used to being treated so inconsequential...there is no room for advancement, it will never happen...I found "brain dead" here...you know?

Emily, like them carnies do you? LOL.....

Country Girl..thanks hon!
