I'm still alive

Wow, I didn't realize it had been so long since I've been here!! Don't you just love life? Hubby is still unemployed so that make week 4 I believe. But keeping fingers crosses, hopefully he'll hear from a job tomorrow! Work sucks right now. Plain and simple I hate it some days. Two people trying to do the job of 3 or 4 isn't cutting it. Speaking of that today is the last day of the month so I've got to get back to the grind. I'll update more soon!!!

Hurrican Ike

GO AWAY!!! Simple enough. Why? I don't like paying out the ass for a tank of gas. $3.59 to +$4.00 pgal in the course of hours is a little bit uh um idiotic!!!! Yes the refineries are shutting down for a couple of days. But what about the stuff that already been refined that sitting there? And oil priced dropped today! Imagine that. It seems like every time they drop we rarely see a decrease, but let them rise the least little bit or have a hurricane blowing through the gulf and we're screwed!!! I don't see the reasoning behind all the people going berserk and filling every car they own, filling every extra container they own. This is why we are having a shortage folks! If you would just continue like normal, get gas when you NEED it things would continue to run smoothly. Now if you are an evacuee, FILL YOUR TANK!!! You my friend have the reason to be doing so. Yes, I filled my tank last night. Before I heard any talk of prices rising. And why? Because my little gas light came on, so therefore if I didn't want to be walking the 20+ miles to and from work (with a 4 year old punk), I thought it would be a good idea to fill-er-up! LIKE NORMAL!!!! Just chill people! Hopefully after tonight/tomorrow Texas will still be there. I hope for that damage will be minimal and not "certain death" as I have read online today.

week 2 of.... yeah you know

Well we have embarked on week #2. I believe in the previous post I said something about hubby cleaning and straighting stuff out. HA HA!!!! I think he did pick up 2 pieces of clothing and put them into the correct dirty clothes bin. And no people, I am not joking. I wonder if I made a list if that would help? Uh NO!! Know why, cause he'd hold on to that list until the punks got home and handed it to them. And of course there's not much of a problem with this, except that they only do a half-assed job of their particular job and consider that done. Now, don't get me wrong, I'm no perfectionist by any means, but come on! When you load dishes, take the two seconds to turn around and pick up the pan sitting on the stove less than 2 feet behind you. Oh, sorry there. That will be a different post for a different day. Back to hubs! Still unemployed, no foreseeable employer in the near future, no word on unemployment compensation.

PS: Don't ever do a stupid thing like I did when researching online colleges: which would be putting your phone number out there. I have one freaking one that keeps calling and emailing, you'd think they would get the point!

week 1 of unemployment

for hubby that is....

Hubby says that since he is "off work" right now that he is going to get things 'round the house straightened out. Oh boy! He's planning on going through stuff and getting rid of a lot of things. I told him that he's done that before but the keep pile is always bigger than the go pile. LOL Isn't that how it usually works? I would really love to get in there and do some deep deep cleaning on the place. All that has been getting done lately is a light surface cleaning. S17 has been helping me out so much in that area. I know she hates doing it, but she is one of the only ones that will do it without too much attitude. I have thanked her several times for cooking dinner while I shuttle punks to soccer practice and all. I hate putting so much on her, but she takes most of it with stride. Yes she can be sneaky as all get out, and yes she will do things that she is absolutely not supposed to do, but I guess it sorta balances out in a weird kind of way.

Got a little of subject there. Anywho, anyone want to take bets on just how much junk we are rid of while hubby is unemployed? Anyone want to guess how many more gray hairs I end up with by the time this is over? Will I be able to handle the stress that comes from cleaning? As long as all my rubber bands hold together I think I'll be ok....LOL
