Rain..Rain...Go Away...



What a rainy, gloomy, dreary day it is today...I have been up since 4 a.m...woke up to a terrible thunderstorm....just couldn't go back to sleep...I laid there in bed, watching the numbers change on the clock..counting down....2 1/2 hours until I have to get up and go spend my day in hell....(job)....then 2 more hours..then 1 more hour..so on and so on.....I hate when I do that!

It is still raining, thundering, lightning..the office lights have flickered a couple times....it would be so cool if the storm knocked our power out, shut down the computers and we could go home....ha! Who am I kidding, that has happened once, in the three and a half years I have worked here....

Thanks to all of your wonderful comments about my job....I truly appreciate your advise....I can tell everyone that I think the idiot..."Mr. Burns"....well, let's just say, "his days are numbered".....he is not being favored by anyone...in fact, a lot of our techs, our managers, etc...have nothing but negative things to say about him. The branch manager himself is quite irritated....so, unless he pulls his head out of his ass....he may be looking for a new job. The Region Manager is coming down tomorrow, to pay him a "visit"...that can not be good. So, I will keep you updated as to what happens with that.

I sure hope the rain lets up....I spend my morning counting down to lunch time...just so that I can escape out of this office for an hour. I don't care to get wet and get my feet soaked (hello, strappy high heel sandals)....it was funny, this morning, hubby pulled the car in front of the house, so that I only had to make a straight bee line to the car...well, as you come down the steps, out the gate....there was a huge puddle of water, at least ankle deep, right where I needed to walk to get into the car...instead of moving the car, hubby picked me up, umbrella and all and carried me and put me in the car...lol...it was so funny....some guy was driving by, I thought he was going to break his neck looking at us...but, my feet stayed dry! He is too much sometimes.....

So, let's talk school....can you believe it is time for the kids to go back? I can't....either the summer is getting shorter...Or I sleep walked through most of it....I have to go buy school supplies today...new book bags, lunch boxes....that is where I will be at lunch time...hopefully, it hasn't been picked over too bad. Nothing like waiting until the last minute....

Max is starting kindergarten....I find that so hard to digest...he is my baby....does not seem like he should be ready to go to "big boy" school....he is very excited though. We have bought all new school clothes...new shoes, etc....he is so ready...I am just not ready to let him go. (sigh...teary eyed)....Aaron will be going into second grade...I have still got to buy his school clothes this week...he has been at his dads for the past two weeks and I just have not had time....that will have to be done this week as well. Tomorrow is registration...maybe after I take care of that, we can run into the mall and do some shopping.....Justin will be going into ninth grade, first year in high school...I am very nervous for him....it is going to be a completely different expierience for him....He is a great kid, and I am sure he is going to do just fine...and my oldest Tim...wow, he is going to be a Senior this year....Damn, I am getting old....(37)....where have my babies gone?

Okay...enough melancholy thoughts....I hope all of you have a great Tuesday...

Only three more days to the weekend.....Yay! Now, lets all sing together...

Loverboy's...."Working for the Weekend"....

Everyone's watching, to see what you will do
Everyone's looking at you, oh
Everyone's wondering, will you come out tonight
Everyone's trying to get it right, get it right

Everybody's working for the weekend
Everybody wants a little romance
Everybody's goin' off the deep end
Everybody needs a second chance, oh
You want a piece of my heart
You better start from start
You wanna be in the show
Come on baby lets go

Everyone's looking to see if it was you
Everyone wants you to come through
Everyone's hoping it'll all work out
Everyone's waiting they're holding out

Everybody's working for the weekend
Everybody wants a little romance
Everybody's goin' off the deep end
Everybody needs a second chance, oh
You want a piece of my heart
You better start from start
You wanna be in the show
Come on baby lets go

(quick break)

You want a piece of my heart
You better start from start
You wanna be in the show
Come on baby lets go

You want a piece of my heart
You better start from start
You wanna be in the show
Come on baby lets go

Hi Dixie, well Katrin isn't up for adoption yet but we are thinking she will be 'high maintaince' with grooming and nail polishing. We might can to that ourselves but her deceased owner didn't. Thank you for peeking in at her.
Actually there are a raft of stories about how to get even with a bad boss. I suppose a few of them are true.
Your babies are still home! Even when they go off though, they will still be your babies. Just got pretty well grown up. Ours (five) are.

Jim...she is adorable. My kids would flip if I got them a dog like that..shoot, I don't have time to take care of them, little long a dog...so, until they get more responsible....they won't be getting a dog anytime soon. As far as my kids go, you are right, in my heart, they are always going to be my "babies"...


Sandy....working on it!
