Seriously, is “copiously” a word? A test: DH: “Are you drinking tonite, dear?” Me: “Copiously.” Kids: “Mom, are you eating the Halloween Candy?!?!” Me: “Copiously” Yeop. It’s a word.
Your job is now your Time Lord name. The last...
yhf: (source: thetardis) The Developer 4th regeneration Black suede jacket I’m not doing this part, because I had to answer a question my ex-wife asked about the kids, and fuck that noise: eight years was long enough. “Gravitas.” The Secretary 9th regeneration Black Hoodie Tinman Copiously (Is that even a real word!?!)
Oh my word, these last few minutes at work are...

Nope. Not for a meme. Today was supposed to be my quiet day. No students. No teachers. No one but me and Arch Nemesis, who doesn’t do a thing anyway so I figured he’d disappear most of the day. Instead…3 maintenance trucks have shown up and the Fire Inspectors. Inspectors are playing with the friggin’ fire alarm. It’s wicked loud. First they let it run for 5...
And popcorn...I love popcorn!
(You might not be able to get me to stop now…)
Love: my kids music yellow starbursts school holidays the sound of rain on our tin roof Hate: living paycheck to paycheck not having a bath tub missing someone who doesn’t miss you waiting rain leaking through our tin roof
Confession: I have tried not to freak out over it over the last 14 days or so, but the wait must be getting to me. I had nothing but nightmares the last few nights. Last night - Hospital nightmares. Going in for my mammogram & ultrasound and having them plop me into a hospital bed for an immediate biopsy. Then they lost my babies who were sitting on the bed. My son kept getting tangled in the...
If I took as much time off as the rest of this staff, they’d be screwed.
I hate answering phones
There’s a reason I was never a secretary prior to taking this job. Because when someone calls from a University and says “They’re calling with UTI,” someone who is serious about being a secretary would never reply “that sounds painful” … as I do.
A day late and a dollar short ... as usually
Set up the Google+ thingy over the weekend. (Someones Sister) Don’t know how I’ll use it, or when … but it’s not blocked by the school like Twitter and Facebook. So, we’ll see.
Oh the Irony
I’ve had a headache and a stiff neck for literally over a month now while I stressed over Autiboy’s bad teacher. Now that his IEP is over, I actually had no headache yesterday. So I celebrated with too many White Russians last night and woke up with a huge headache this morning.
12 is PISSED cuz teacher told her she can't ghost...
I texted the hubs today...
(I don’t have a smart phone. I have a “Kin” which is funnily (?) appropriate for where I live - cus we’s kin to everyone! - so I can’t post those pretty lil screen shots of our convo.) Anyhow… Me: I’m eating half melted fudge and a banana at the same time. I must need extra oral stimulation today. Hubs: POINH! And now I am frantically searching for...
The lie is #3…never been on live stage. Except for 8th grade school play. I’ve been on TV several times, mostly through my gigs on radio. I worked in radio for years before parlaying that into a career in publishing. I worked at a radio station on the Cape, the radio station Charles Laquidera started at outside of Boston, and most notably WRKO in Boston at the time in the late 80s...
Two truths and a lie
I’ve been on TV. I’ve been on Radio. I’ve been on live stage.
Day 17: Lessons Learned from Life
From my Childhood: Don’t eat sand. Do not pick up bees! You are allergic to bees! NEVER wake up your Dad. Read. Read all that you can. Don’t take candy from strangers…hold out for the cash. Be a good girl. From my Teen/College years: “Listen up and listen well, to your friend no secrets tell. For when that friend becomes your foe, your secrets everyone will...
Day 17: Something you're afraid to admit
Most of the time, I don’t know what the hell I’m doing. (Except at work, I always know what I’m doing there. I mean I know what I’m doing. I don’t necessarily know what I’m doing there.)
And all this time I've been worried about the...
Thanks all for the nice words. It’ll be nothing. Then we’ll all laugh!
Crap. Just got my results back from last weeks mammogram. They want me to come back in for further imaging. A left breast special view mammogram. Not going to worry. They’re just bewbie papparazzi. They want to get more pictures of the perky one. That’s all.
I’ll give you sex injuries… Stretch marks, epidural headaches, episiotomies, ripped who-hahs, sore nipples. Now those are sex injuries.
Day 16: Things that make me happy
Aside from memes like this (I’m totally a list person!): my husband my kids my friends CHOCOLATE a clean house a good hair day compliments margaritas new things/stuff new friends ice cream crossing things off my To Do list crossing names off my shit list (for one reason or another!) actually finishing a DIY project creme brulee making people laugh making babies (practicing...
factualfiction replied to your photo: My favorite cheap tequila. My girls’ Barbies have… I want that backsplash. Easy DIY project. It comes in 18x30 inch panels from Lowes. A little adhesive and Cut ‘n Fit. Voila! (The counter tops will be a lil more involved. But we’ll get there!)
A glimpse of my Saturday night...
Hubs to 4yo: Put the kitten down! She’s not a puppet. Me to hubs: Don’t you mean Doll? She’s not a doll. Hubs: “…” Me: 4’s just carrying her around. It’s not like her hand is up the cat’s butt. That’s all I’m saying. 12: (trying to hide giggles from her father) Me: Glad I made someone laugh tonite.
zerovalent replied to your photoset: GPOACHYAPO (Gratuitous pictures of a couple… Hahahahaha! That was my bedhead this morning!!!!
What to do? What to do?
Hubs is working today. I need to go grocery shopping. The house needs a douche. I need to cut Autiboys hair. I have to document all the crap that’s been going on at school for the IEP meeting. Oh, and I have a baby shower at 3pm for someone I work with, but don’t hang with. Not enough hours in the day to do all this and still enjoy my weekend. So… I’m going to hang out...
totalinnerbitch replied to your post: SST Does your state have a law or anything that would require them to get an assistant for him/the room? Surely there is something that can be done. Hugs When I went to the head of EC, for some of which I mentioned earlier, but also reports from staff and students that she was being “mean” to my son and putting her hands on him, I asked for a...
I realize I contradict myself. I have been playing on Tumblr during work this week. And I did comment that I wasn’t doing much work the last couple days. I am rebelling. I’m a rebel. (But I still get my whole To Do list done, cuz it would drive me crazy if I didn’t!)
Today that means sucky sucky thursday. I cried at work today. I am having the worst school year, so far, when it comes to my son. He’s got a teacher who understands nothing about autism and is basically ignoring and refusing to help him. I’ve already reported her to the head of EC. And our IEP is scheduled for Wednesday. At this point, because I work next door at the high school, the...
