Job hoppers

Ever worked with a "job hopper"?

Someone who constantly applied for internal job postings and is not afraid to admit she's been in 7 different jobs in just as many (or less) years.

We have an opening and I would love to apply. I am, honestly, afraid she will apply... I don't think I can work directly with her.

I'm having a rough start today.

Writing a book...

Has anyone gone to the next level and written a book?

Did you convert your big posts to your story?

What were your next steps?

I'm getting the bug to want to take the next step... Just need some guidance.

Attending a wedding

My son and I recently attended a wedding for a friend of ours. 

The last time we saw her, she was multitasking, overactive, and a tiny girl. It's been so long since we've seen each other.

She has found herself a happy place I her life and found someone who makes her happy. This is good. I am happy for her.

She seems to be happy with who she is, where she is, and what she is.

Dressing professional

I work in an office and we have a dress code, by which we need to follow.

I guess that what isn't covered tends to be the issue. It talks about sandals and short skirts but it doesn't talk about tops.

We have one girl who always wears low cut tops that are snug, so her chest is always showing. I'm sure she gets special treatment and no one says anything because the guys in her dept don't mind. 

I find it unprofessional. It my top feels snug, I change it. If I can see my bra, I change it.

Why is that such a difficult concept? Are hers fake? Or does she crave the attention?

Really have to wonder.

And then we have casual days. A fellow co-worker wore jeans and a tank top with a blouse over the top. Okay. But the blouse was unbuttoned and the tank top was white. She is petite and larger. The top was inappropriate... She kept pulling the blouse closed and didn't seem to notice that tanks are snug. I didn't understand that either.

I, myself, get very self-conscious and would not be able to be comfortable.

How about you?

Times like this...

I'm stressed, I have been munching, I've had an anxiety attack and I could really use a hot bath, but my son is in the tub.

I could really use a 2nd bathroom right about now.

Today was my final exam in class, my computer went wonky and I'm anxious.

This sucks!

Today has been a long day. Got up and was going to hit the kickboxing class and then the gym, but I didn't. I'm going to walk tonight and I was cleaning the basement today. Just want to chill after a week of constant running and meetings.

Not thought through

My son wants to paint the joists in the basement ceiling (it's only been 40+ years since they had paint). 

He was all gung-ho so I bought him paint, a roller, and drop cloths... And now he's finding out that painting a ceiling is a lot more work than originally thought. 

My mom wants me to move stuff for him. I want to see if he's even going to think about painting anymore of this.

If he paints, I will move stuff...

My boy's a teenager

Okay, so he wants to move into the basement. Okay, fine. He also understands that our basement is an OLD basement with low ceilings and poor layout. Our house was designed with a basement for storage, not comfort. He is aware that he will be sharing his new "space" with storage... Of everything that is down there. I have gone through and emptied boxes, thrown stuff, recycled magazines/papers, donated stuff, and put stuff away. He has tons of toys when he was growing up.... And now he is willing to go through his stored shit and clean it out. He is purging his stuff. I guess I can move forward with him moving downstairs. If he can clean his stuff, find room in the basement, and then move his stuff downstairs, I get my room back and will have my own space that I haven't had for over 16 years.,

My son and me dressing up

I started wearing makeup again. I bought this awesome 3D Fiber mascara (check out her website at: that can only bought through a distributor! Anyway, I started putting makeup on because I feel pretty.

My son keeps asking me "why are you suddenly wearing so much makeup?" I guess ANY makeup after NO makeup, it could potentially be considered "so much".

I just wear eye liner and mascara because I don't feel I need all the other stuff I used to wear. 

I don't know if he just doesn't understand the concept, or if there's a reason I'm wearing it. I'm not sure. 

I guess for him up see his mom wearing makeup is a little strange. I wish he could understand but I doubt it. He is used to seeing girls wear makeup when they are dating someone or going out with someone. 

Me, I'm alone and he is the only man in my life.

I just want to be pretty and attractive. Maybe someday I will find happiness.

My sons girlfriend

Has your child dated someone you just didn't like? Well, my son has his first girlfriend. She is younger (2years) and she asked him. I think it's sketchy but I'm a mom.

My son is quiet, reserved, and low-maintenance. She, on the other hand, is a girlfriend version of a younger bridezilla! 

She has anxiety issues, doesn't want to be alone, doesn't like gatherings, is secretive, is kinda rude.... And the list goes on.

This fall my son will be a senior, at a different high school, and his job is picking up, so there are two reasons she is upset with him. Oh well, that's life.

I told he that he "isn't married up her" and that he can tell her "no". 

It's a long story, over these past four months.

I  ready for him to move on. I am also ready to tell that "little lady" to "suck it up buttercup and GET OVER IT!" (Or would that be rude?!?!?!$

Little things can cause stress

Sometimes I know that my mind gets the best if me and I let little things wear on me.

I know things go wrong, and in my brain, I scream and holler, rant and rave, but nothing ever comes out if my mouth. I can't yell and scream, so if I do, it's a rare occasion that concerns people.

I get so mad at stupid stuff but then i don't day anything because I feel it's not worth an argument!

Today (and yesterday), there were several  things that happened to really piss me off, but I take the easy way out, not saying anything, because it's really just not worth it. 

I know better but oh well.

Have you ever had a friend who was your best friend in the whole world but then there were times when you weren't sure where you stood?

It suddenly is like you don't exist. Like you are a best friend when it's convenient and they have time for you, but otherwise they don't go out of their way.

I have one friend I've known forever and we are really close. She came to visit and made time to spend time with everyone but then expected me to make the time to go to her, although she went past me two or three times. So I missed out because my schedule didn't fit in because I had to work. Part of me is sad because I didn't get to see her but part of me is upset because she could have taken a few hours to stop by and say hi.  Oh well. 

And then I have a second friend who is busy with her world but finds me when she needs something. She can't pay her bills but she can go out to eat and take her child places, and do the recreation things. Her bills include paying me back when I helped her out, but I guess I should know better. She has people buying her things and she doesn't seem to hesitate going out... With her pretty friends. I feel negative about myself as it is, but the fact that she doesn't go hang out with me, instead she does things with her "pretty & sexy" friends... And then floods social media with photos... I feel like a piece of shit.

What the hell is wrong with me? I have such a low self-esteem... And my friends seem so pretty and popular that I feel like a reject.

Monday morning

I am laying here, listening to the fan... And my son snoring. I start work an hour later today so this schedule has me all messed up, not to mention my poor kitty cats. 

Tomorrow my son starts summer school and we will all be up early... At least for the next four weeks...

I am still tossing around ideas for writing my story. I have stuff written, I have thoughts in my head. I just need to put it together. 

Well, my kitty is here to cuddle for a half hour so... Until later my friends.

Writing my story

I want to write my story. There is do much that people don't know... And I believed I can share myself to let those who have gone through the same, that they are not alone.

Sunday, June 15, 2014

List my mind

I know I do too much and spread myself too thin... But today made me see that clearly. 

Everything written said my son started work at 4.... I took him to work at 2.... 

I guess I need to stop stretching myself too thin.

OCD and getting turned around

My son has ADHD, anxiety, and slight obsessive disorder. He has patterns and routines.

Tonight, him and a friend went for a walk. It got dark and they got turned around, ending up in a area they had not planned on.

They got back on track and he called me to tell me they were on their way back. I could hear the anxiety in his voice and breathing.

His friend doesn't know about this.

When he got home, he was short and snippy. Then he started to tear up. Yep, I'm a mom, I hit the nail on the head when I asked him if the stress was from "getting lost". Yep, sure enough... And then the flood gates opened and he sobbed.

This is sometime I have learned to recognize and defuse but it's tough when his mood is sharp.

He is in a hot bath and relaxing. Time for bed... Its been a long day...

Early morning church, breakfast, movie, family dinner, went for a walk, went to his friend's, went for another walk, got turned around, and finally got home...

Oh yeah, long day...

Happy Easter everyone!

News on TV

I wake up in the morning to find my mom watchimg the news.

She then proceeds to tell me about the accidents, deaths, storms, and shootings.... At 5am.

Once again, I remind her (as politely as possible) that there is a reason I do not watch the news... And it is by choice that I don't watch it.

If you want to tell me that they have found a cure for cancer, or stopped all child abuse, or saved all the stray animals.... Fine, but the negative I can do without. 

My mom is 82 and spends time flipping between local and world news. It is truly no wonder why old people get so cranky and ornery.... Especially when they watch the news!!!!

Turn on the Brady Bunch, Dick van Dyke, or even Phineas and Ferb.... And laugh & smile! It won't kill you!!!!!

If my son sheds tears when our fish dies.... What is he going to do when someone breaks his heart? Mom can buy new fish.... But the broken heart... That's a bigger task....

My world has been in a spin...

I started my MBA and finally got over my bronchitis, sinus infection, and war infection.

I made it through my first class with a B so I was thrilled.

My son is struggling with school, especially since he is a junior and they are looking at graduation.

I couldn't handle the roller coaster. I took 2 weeks off school so I can help him, support him, and get him through this. 

I return to class next week. I have helped get him on track. And I hope we are good. He just needed to understand that I am always here to support him... He just has to ask... But he asks for help as much as I do (hmpf!!!)... So I know the signs!

Hopefully next week we will be riding a little smoother!!!!

Have you ever faced a time in your life, or with your child, that you just want to throw in the towel? I don't know what to do some days, how to respond, or how to react. I feel like I'm at a loss. 

Thursday, February 6, 2014


We spent thanksgiving and Christmas with my son being sick with a virus and pink eye. Once he started getting better, I went down with a sinus infection and ear infection. Today I am still down (5wks later). I haven't had an ear infection since I was 10 or so... And trust me, I DO NOT miss them!!!!!! Might as well get this out of my system so I can get on with 2014!!!!!

Today has been a bad day

My mood is down

I am bummed

No ability to be patient

Not impressed with anything

And really don't care today....

Today is a bad day....

Bath time

My son lives in the bath.
He used to hate water and baths. He then took swim lessons and I think he mutated with a fish!!!!
Every morning he takes a shower because he needs to wash his hair... And then he takes a bath every night before bed. He lounges in the tub for hours. He uses bubble bath and lights candles... And just chills. I can appreciate that.
I am happy my child is clean and his hair is washed. Too many kids don't do that regularly.
I guess it's not so bad....

It's good when...

Your teenage son is not afraid to introduce you to his friends... And admit that you are his mom.

A child's pain

How do you convince a 16-year old that his BFF is only moving 30 minutes away... Not around the world?

She accepts him for who he is and they hang out, laugh, talk, be serious and be silly.

He is heartbroken. I am also.

The hardest part of being a mom is seeing your child in pain.
