Example of Duhhhh

In my cube farm there is me and other guy. The IT dude was there and another guy comes in to play. Let me tell you how this played out.
Other cube guy will be person"A"
I am person "B"
IT dude is "C"
another guy is "D"

In the cube farm persons A. B & C are in conversation. Person D comes over and says to person A. Do you send out purchase orders to vendors once approved? Person A responds with a yes, if a request is made to do so. Person D says well how does one request you to send a PO? Person C says Hey A send a purchase order to XYZ Corp. We all start to laugh and person D says no really how do you request a PO be sent? C & B in unison say "Hey A send a PO to XYZ Corp."
He still did not get it.

Just stuff.

Woosh! That is how things are once again. It comes and goes in waves. Bud was sick all weekend again! He missed his game and tried to convince me, in between episodes of barfing that he was able to skate. Umm yeah, I was born yesterday. So in the house we sat all day. Alllll daaaayy! I needed to go to the store, but never made it. The hubs and I ended up going out to eat with another couple that night as my cabin fever was hitting an all time high. We had a lovely time. It's been a while since we went out like adults. Not that we acted like them, but we went out like them. After dinner we went to another friends house. We played cards and then entertained ourselves with the Nintendo Wii system.
HOLY CRAP! After playing the boxing game my arms were killing me. It hurt to put on my seat belt yesterday. I did enjoy playing the game, but not the Walmart price of 598.00. My friends got a deal before Christmas. Now since it is so popular and out of stock everywhere they can charge an arm and a leg. Lucky them.
Bud is all better so I am trying to figure what is up with the sickness that he has had on and off for the past 4 weeks. ugghh! If its not one thing it is another.
so... that is all
enjoy life!

short & sweet

I have been attempting to post something....anything for the past few days. I have nothing to talk about. I started yesterday with a post on being rude. It's awful where I spend physically 40 hours a week, but I did not want to do that. Then I started about the hockey thing and thought you would be bored off your arse. So I went to the next logical thing. Spring. Today its here tomorrow it will be gone. So there you have it.
Random updates:
Did I mention that I gave up soda for lent? I can't recall, but with 18 days left it is a struggle. I am tired of water, lemonade and cranberry juice. I am soooo weak.
I have crossed the 365 day threshold for being on the receiving end of another stroke. Yeah! Just out of curiosity who sets up that time frame?
I have lost no weight like I wanted to.
I want to see Blades of Glory.
Bud had "graduated" to the big donuts. On Sunday we went on our weekly trip to Tim Horton's and he said "mommy I have graduated to big donuts now,.... may I have one?" He is so funny.
I have to deal with the neighbors everlovin' cat poo again now that spring is here. That feline uses my flower box as a personal litter pan. Grumble grumble grumble.
So there you have it.
Short and sweet with nothing going on. Nothing at all.

Feels like all grown up

Today I had to Register Bud for Kindergarten. I have all of the necessary forms and I stroll in to the board room and away I go. Now he has been going to pre-school for two years. No, he is not a flunky. It is just what they call their program. I have mixed emotions with this. Yeah! he is making another leap in life. Boo! He is growing up too fast. I know I am jumping the gun, the school year does not start until September, so this summer is going to be the best summer evah!

Yesterday was the opening day of Papa Jacks. We were there right after dinner getting ice cream with our winter coats on. Sounds strange, but that is the practice in our little neck of the woods. We are supposed to get a snow storm again. I digress honestly there is nothing like a fresh batch of custard with fresh hot fudge. It is the smoothest & the creamiest in the world. A week from now it will still be good, but not as good.

On our way to Papa Jacks I asked Bud which he would rather do. Since we are not wealthy, we have choices to make. Does he want to go to Disney World or Hockey Camp? He has seen the pictures of Disney and looked at the travel book with us when we were deciding where we were going to stay. He thought for a minute and then said Hockey Camp. I was a bit surprised, but honestly not really. The cost is the same. Camp is expensive. We will still go to Florida, but we will not be going to Disney World. He said can we go another time? I said sure, but not this year. He was fine with it. I was bummed, I wanted to take him to Disney. I wanted to see the look on his face when he saw Mickey and Buzz Lightyear. I guess that is not going to happen. Pretty soon he will be too "old" for that stuff. He clearly is not a baby anymore.

Panic Attack!

As the norm for a random Friday night, Bud & I are at the Hockey game. He says he is hungry, and that he wants a hotdog. OK, no big deal. I reach down in to my purse and pull out my camera. It is the same size and weight as my wallet, so I dig around a little more. No wallet. Thinking that I am looking in the wrong place, I start all over again. Reality sets in, it is not there. Do I panic....Nope. I am sure that it fell out of my purse when I turned the corner to pull in to my parents driveway. So when we get to my parents house I look in my car. Not there. Am I panicking yet? Nope. I get home and look there. The hubs says he did not see it. Now I start to panic. I drive to the office, knowing that I for sure had it there since I let a co-worker borrow my wholesale club card for gas. I get to my desk and Nope. Not there. I go back home in a tizzy. Did someone take it from my car when I went to pick up Bud from Pre-K? I log on to the computer to see if there are any charges on my cards. Nope, so no seasoned thief took it. In my living room I get on my hands and knees and look everywhere. Then out of the corner of my eye I see a glimmer under the hubs recliner. My wallet was way far under the hubs recliner. Apparently when Mr. Oblivious sat in his recliner he did not see it on the floor, and when I asked to check around his chair getting up was not an option for him. Thanks for the help dear! Anyways HUGH sigh of relief, and I ended up staying up until 3am since I was so wound up. That was the start of my weekend fiasco.

enjoy life!

Getting Lazy

It's not that I have nothing to say, it's not that I don't have the time to say Hiya. Well, that may be partially true, but I just can't seem to get my thoughts together.
So here is one that has been brewing for you.

I had scheduled a series of interviews for a job opening in my current organization. We (me & HR) call on two people who were referred by a recruiter. The first one came in smelling like a pack of day old smokes, and went in to too much detail about her baby mamma drama. The second came in pretty much together and in my opinion under dressed for the interview, but dressed appropriately for the position. The third was dressed appropriately, however she kept looking out the big window we have in the office and swaying her head.

I have made a decision.

When the time comes, and the position is right, I am pretty confident that I will not have a problem finding a job if the pool to choose from is anything like what I saw. I am still absolutely amazed. I reflected on how I interviewed for my current position. I took a shower that morning, wore a suit in a neat and trendy manor, I brushed my teeth, touched up the makeup and made sure I was not smelly. I looked the interviewers in the eye and answered their questions. That is all.

I guess people are not reading those tips on the websites for interviewing techniques, and they wonder why they are not getting the job.

There is hope for me!

enjoy life!

gene failure

I have been playing hooky with my child by taking him to skate with the players, and as you can see he loves it. The player in this picture has the same number as Bud.

Is there such a thing as gene failure? I feel like I have failed my child. He has fallen victim to poor eyesight, cowlicks, and now he is having issues with fluid build up in the inner ear canal. So my adorable sweet child is trying to get thought it all taking it in stride of course. meanwhile, I feel like a failure. I have been crying most days and he says "mommy, why are you crying? It will be ok" I say to him "you are right. It will be ok". I feel like I produced this child and I have let him down by not taking in to consideration the medical issues that are hereditary. He has to get glasses in two rounds. His eyes are that bad that it can not be done in one shot. How could I not notice that? How could I be with my son everyday and not see that he could not see. What else and I missing?

That was just the beginning.

I am now a choosy mother. So long Peter Pan. I loved you for 30 years. My son loved you, now because of you, it has taken me 2 weeks to get Bud to eat peanut butter & jam. He loves PB&J.

damn you!

Now for a bit of pleasantry, this is what I see outside my window at work everyday. I would much rather they be in my freezer as food, but over the past few days they have managed to bring 6 friends to eat what the downstairs people provide. It eases the stress like you would not believe.

enjoy life!
