One of the funniest comericals ever...


Sometimes parenting blows....

So today after I picked Clayton up from school we came home and started watching the new series Life. The series is totally awesome, but I digress. Clayton took an orange soda into the living room and proceeded to spill it everywhere. Like half of one of those 20 oz bottles. Ug. So then I got down to clean it up and use my carpet spray and I discovered that I didn't have enough. So then we had to run to Kmart and buy more spray and run back home before it dried and completely ruined the carpet. After it was all cleaned up we both laid down and took a nap. We woke up and I made dinner. I made Clayton his favorite dinner, shrimp pasta. He sat down and took two bites and told me that he wanted to lay down. About ten minutes later he got sick all over my couch. Ug. Between the soda and the sick, my living room had a really hard day. I think I have scrubbed more today than I have in years. Here's to hoping that Clay doesn't get sick again. He is in bed now and hopefully he gets a lot of rest and kicks whatever he has.

Other than that today was a better day because it was my short day from work. I just wish that I hadn't spent most of the afternoon scrubbing. It was nice not to be at the office all day today. I am getting seriously sick of that dude at work. Today he asked me how my "husband" was. He knows that I am divorced. I said my ex is doing fine. Then for some strange ass reason he asked me where we went on our honeymoon. What kind of weirdo asks someone who is now divorced where they went on their honeymoon? I can't wait until he is gone. Well I am going to go check on my little man now. Here's to hoping that he doesn't get sick again.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy

If my name was Jack, I would be pretty dull. I have been working so much lately. This tax season is kicking our ass more than usual. We have a temp working in our office. This guy is super annoying however. He is creepy in that used car salesman way. He makes me uncomfortable, not in an "oh my God he is going to kill me" way but more in an "eeewww don't talk to me way". He argues with the other professional in the office, even though he doesn't know what he is talking about. He is constantly leaving the lid of the copier up and he sighs all the damn time. So work isn't even a comfortable place to be. I am going to be so glad in 17 days when tax season is over.

Well I need to hit the bed, but I have a bunch of stuff to catch up on in this blog... like the fact that my best friend is preggo and found out today that she is having a boy!

Playing solitare

Urg. Been working a lot lately. This next weekend is my ex's weekend with my son and I would love to go out and do something fun. The only problem is that I have allowed my circle of friends to get so damn small that I have no one to go out with. My friends either don't go out, or they are too tired to go anywhere. I think that is the most bothersome part of being single. I wind up staying home alone because I don't have anyone. Literally.

On a lighter note, I flipped some people off today. There were a bunch of right wing assholes standing on the side of the road protesting, “Obama care”. I figured since they felt like they could stand on the side of the road and push their political beliefs in my face, that I had every right to flip them off. I might be wrong, but I really don't care.

I'm baaack...

So it has been awhile since I have posted anything on here. I have been a bit busy. We had to fire someone at work and it totally screwed up this tax season. It has been good for me though. I basically got a promotion and a raise at work. While that is nice, I have to spend every moment that I don't have my son at work. Between work and school I have been really super busy and very tired.

The stupid damn water company that my grandfather left my dad has been driving us all up the wall. We have had two major leaks in the last month. My poor dad has been standing in holes scooping muddy water out. I swear that every time that something happens with the water company, it takes six months off my dad's life. We have been trying to sell the water company to the City for years. They have not moved forward with it. They either need to proceed with the sale or let it go. It is killing my parents.

To top it all off my ex has been a mega ass lately. He thinks that he can lose the things that I buy for my son and that I will be ok with it and that I will just turn around and replace it without a cross word. He has now lost two jackets that I bought for Clay this winter. He just expects me to replace them. Ass.

The one bit of good news is that Clay is doing much much better at school. I have him in counseling and that has been working wonders. He is getting older too, which helps because he is better able to explain when things that make him mad. We are working on it, and now that I have some professional help with parenting issues, I feel more calm.

I am going to try and post everyday now, at least with some goofy anecdote from that day.
