And....it's only Wednesday....



Tired you say? Tired of what? Well...a lot of things....for starters, tired of not being able to sleep at night. I don't know what is wrong with me as of late, but I have great difficulty staying asleep...I fall asleep ok, for an hour or so, then I wake up, to go to the restroom, or what not...and I can't go back to sleep!
Last night was another one of "those" nights....

Lack of sleep ( I probably got two hours total), a major headache, coupled with some PMS...I feel like a walking time bomb....it's really going to be a long day.

At least "Mr. Burns" isn't here today....thank goodness. I wanted to kill him yesterday....between him and my job itself, my stress level is pretty high. I have finally started to see the light here at work.....the major part of my work load, that has totally consumed me for the past three weeks, was pretty much completed yesterday...so, I am somewhat relieved. I still have a few loose ends to wrap up, but overall...I am done with the "project"....

So...hopefully, I can get back to blogging a little more then I have....I haven't been around to read hardly any of my blogging buddies lately, so I hope to get caught up on all of your blogs soon...and comment.

That's another thing I am tired of...lack of comments....I know I don't post as often, but I have explained why, but seriously...comments around here are few and far between...and of the blogs I have visited recently, I have found that blog rolls I used to be on, gone! I am no longer on there...what the heck did I do? I guess I am just not entertaining enough anymore, huh? Dixie isn't bringing it to the table...Why? Well, it's this little thing called life! Or, as I have been told before, by another blogger that took me off of her blogroll, she removed me because of some of the bloggers I had myself linked to via my blogroll..she found them "objectionable"...okey dokey then....so, don't read the people I am linked to that you find objectionable..just because I find them entertaining, doesn't make me a bad person...good grief!
I find more and more, that blogging is somewhat like when you were in high school....there are so many little cliques out there....you are either in or out...and if you are out, then you can't help but feel like, "Why am I not good enough?"....well for me, I really don't care anymore...I blog what I want, when I want, for me.....I am so over blogging for other people...I am not going to worry about blog rolls, comments or anything....I don't like losing readers, none of us do....I don't think there is a blogger out there that is not a comment whore....everyone loves to get comments....I still love to get them, I am just not going to stress over it if I don't....

Moving on...another thing I am tired of...Dancing With the Stars...seriously, what the hell is up with that show? Cloris Leachman, safe last night....Toni Braxton sent home? You have got to be kidding me? This season just isn't cutting it for me....I am too busy, too disinterested, to spend my evenings in front of the t.v....I don't have enough hours in the day...I will blog about it when I can, when I find it interesting enough. Last night, I caught a recap of Monday nights show...just a few of the dances....the jitterbug, performed by Brooke and Derek was my favorite...Julianne and the kid (can't remember his name) did really well too....I felt Len judged badly, just because he didn't like the jitterbug....both Derek and Julianne and their partners should have all gotten tens...and to continue to keep Cloris on, just for "entertainment" value is wrong...I thought this was a dance competition? Guess I was wrong.....hence, my "tiredness" with the show....

Tired? Yep...tired of life in general...it is consuming me...tired of not having any time to myself....I hate my job, that is no secret...I give 110 % of myself for 8 hours a day, every day....then I have to take care of my family, which is a no brainer...I love my family dearly...but, ya'll...it is hard! It is so hard to work all day, take care of the house (cleaning, grocery shopping), cooking for my family, helping with homework, spending quality one on one time with the kids and the hubby, helping with things at my kids school, trying to fit in the gym three times a week, minimum....leaves absolutely zero time for me...unless, I forego sleep....by choice...and if you know me, I don't willingly forego sleep...I can't...I go go go from 6:30 in the morning, to minimum 11:30 at night....I am wound tight as a timex wind up.....I need some down time.....for me.....but, you go to the gym, you say? Yes, I do go to the gym, but I don't look at that as "down time"...that is hard, grueling, and painful....I don't take pleasure in that...I do it because I have to...many days, I literally drag my ass in there.....I have to make myself do it....if not, the 30 pounds I lost? Back on my ass...not going to happen! I worked too hard to lose it....so, regardless of how physically tired I am, like today, come 5:15 today, I will be on that treadmill....

Hubby and I are supposed to take a mini road trip this weekend to Nashville...I don't look forward to the drive..but, I do look forward to getting there.....because, I am going to meet my first blogger! Yay! I am meeting Flat...from Flat Coke and Flies...I can't wait...we have tried to meet up a couple of times, but for some reason or other, it just hasn't happend....this time, I am going to make it happen...You hear me Flat? I will be calling you sometime on Saturday for confirmation of meet up location, m'kay?

Well, my rant is over...back to work I must go...after I read some blogs of course..

Don't fault me...the cat's away...of course I am going to play some....especially after the day I had yesterday...

Later..gators!

If someone drops you from their blogroll because of the other blogs you link to, you should be glad they're gone. Fuck them.

(It's probably my fault.) :D

I don't comment much anywhere. I just never know what to say.

Sandy....Mr. Burns is exactly like the one from the Simpsons...lol...with a bad toupee.
Yes, I am sick of Dancing with the Stars too...Brooke and Derek are going to win, no doubt in my mind.

Ajooja...Amen my friend....no, it's not your fault, silly boy. I am the same, I don't have a lot of time as of late to get around to blogs, little long comment.

We don't get Dancing With the Stars here...I only get my updates from Perez Hilton and Yahoo....what the heck did Cloris say on TV that made the censors nervous? Didn't catch the rest of the news.....

Sometimes I like to imagine people who make me nuts as animation characters...makes them a bit easier to handle...or smoosh...or blow up...but that's just me.
have a better day...and look at it this way...it's almost the weekend...you can do all that AND have a drink! (or at least I plan on it!!!)

Dix. . . my two cents worth. . . what I like about your blog is the things like work, play, kids, school, stress. . . what I don't relate to at all on your blog is the TV stuff. . . not your fault, but I honestly don't watch anything that regularly. . . if anything I watch sports the most. . . . so when I see a blog about any tv shows I skim it at best.
Hope your weekend is great. . . . and I hope the weather is beautiful.
Ciao

Tired. I hear ya woman! I'm ALWAYS tired. No matter how much sleep I get. Which is often about 3 to 5 hours. Get up at the asscrack of dawn (6:35am) and don't go to bed until somewhere between 11pm and 1 am. Most days I'm draggin ass all day, then about 5pm, I hit that "second wind", and I'm wide awake! UGH

I started watching my 4 yr old niece in August, so that's why I'm gettin up at the asscrack of dawn. IF she goes back to sleep in the morning, I'll often lay down too. But, that doesn't happen too often. And IF she takes a nap, I'll take one too, but again, doesn't happen too often!

My Valley Fever is acting up again, which explains my EXTRA tiredness. Fatigue, really. It sux, but, nothing I can do about it.

As far as commenting. I do sometimes, you know! ;0) Sometimes I just dunno what to say, or haven't anything to say. And if you've been around my blog, you know that I rarely post on it! LOL

Taking you off of the blog roll, just because you read somebody that somebody else doesn't like is just wrong!! Can we say "high school"? PUH-fucking-leeze! I hate that shit!! I dunno, last time I checked I was 44, not 14, and I graduated from high school 26 years ago!! (Jeeeze I'm gettin old! LOL)

Well, little one went back to sleep this morning, I didn't, so I took this opportunity to blog hop! ;0)

Hope you get some relief at work soon, and get you some muchly deserved rest!!
