let us begin...again

To finish up on the post below:

AAAAAnd since last year, this very same J-erkward (the boys new name) moved in two doors down from us. How in the world is that even funny? The girl and J-erkward are still friends though. He's dating someone on her softball team so it was awkward at first but they seem to be back to where they were, talking almost everyday. On the phone, not in person. Last week, hubby being gone overnight to Arizona to pick up his brother, she came in and said, "mom, can me and J-erkward take a walk around the block?" I gueeeeesss was my reply. It was only 9:30 but still. Anyways, she came back about 15 minutes later and I asked what they talked about. She said that mostly about nothing other than her making fun of him because he doesn't like scary movies.
I knew I had a good reason not to like him.

Jump forward to the future now and here we are June 22, 2010. Some updates.

Hubby - still not working. Bastard.
the boy - still not working and going to summer school at community college.
the girl - will probably never work and is spending the week over at sis #2 house.
me - the only stupid motherfucker working.

Sadies from hell

The girl decided to ask her friend to the Sadies dance in two weeks. I said it was ok because she would have been grounded for 6 weeks by then. *using the internet on her phone for 180 in charges.*
She and I made shirts that had spelled out Sadies?. She gathered her 7 friends at the front of the gym and waited. It seemed that the guy had been tipped off and had to have his brother take him there, panic attack and all. He is exremely shy and I think this was too much for him. It turns out that this guy likes her and he didn't know what to do. When he saw the girls there all lined up, he turned heel and ran. The girl laughed it off and they went back to lunch. While there, she saw that his brother was leaning down at him and she heard him ask..."do you want to go?" and he had his head in his lap and nodded yes and then took off like a bat out of hell. He didn't return to lunch. She saw him getting ready to leave and she hopes to god that she didn't see that his eyes looked different. She feels bad. Like she really embarrased him..Don't get me wrong , she's highly pissed too but he is a good friend to her and she thinks that maybe she messed up by doing this.
I gave her permission to give him hell tomorrow and ask him what's up. She said she needed to talk to him but if this is how he acted in front of people, she knows he'll be embarrased to talk to her face to face.
She says she doesn't like him but now that she knows he does, if she gives him the speech "i don't like you like that" then I know. If she doesn't....that's a whole new ball game.
She had a junior friend that she found out thru the grapevine that he liked her. She confronted him and asked him and he said "yeah"...she then said "welli don't like you like that but I hope we can still be friends." That boy doesn't go to school anymore. He's home schooled now. My girl don't mess around. she is not afraid of confrontation and if she wants to say something, she will. NOt mean but she gets her point across.
We'll see what happens tomorrow.

The girl is going to ask a boy....to Sadies. We made shirts last night. Each white shirt had a letter spelling out Sadies ? . She will ask him tomorrow because today he had a baseball game. She doesn't know if he will say yes or not. Ineresting.

The boy practiced with "the band" yesterday. They are called Chasing Tomorrow. We'll see how that goes.

I called in sick today....sssshhhhh don't tell my brother in law. :)

I found this sheet of paper in the bathroom this morning from hubby to the girl.
When I saw it, I started to cry. The girl didn't know what the hell was going on. I explained to her that my dad used to leave us notes for us to find in the morning of things he wanted to say. He didn't leave them in the bathroom but he would leave them on the countertop always in the same place.

Dad worked nights and left around 2:30 in the afternoon and wouldn't come home until 1:00ish or so. If we weren't up at night, he would leave us notes :
"here is your lunch money"
"good game you had today"
just stuff...and he would sign it dad but he would also sign it "D".
So when I saw the note, I started to cry. I found one of those notes out in the garage when cleaning up mom's garage...I gotta go find it now.

smoke 'em if yo got 'em

did i mention that i stopped smoking? i did? did i mention that it sucks balls royally? i said that too?? ...damn now what else can i talk about. i can't think about anything other than food and smoking...i think about eating and then smoking.
oh well move on ...get over it.

the girl started softball practice monday. she has only been going for 3 days but so far she loves it. the team sucks though. hubby went out there and watched and they are like the bad news bears...literally. the Varsity coach wanted to know if hubby would help out and coach the JV team..now i know they're desperate. he said he would help out but that he has a new job coming up and won't be around too much.

oh yeah...he had an interview for a trucking outfit that would have him driving to LA and San Diego and back. He would be gone every other day and be home on weekends. Be still my beating heart. We'll see. He has to take all his endorsements again and has begun studying for them. Unemployment called and they were just as confused as he was as to how this all got so fucked up. Suffice to say they will be sending out paperwork for him to fill out and then it's all gravy from there. They will cut him a check for back pay. Yada Yada yadda. I'll wait and see what happens next.

I'm hungry.

a slow but sure death

17 days without a cigarette.....
2 days on a diet...

ugh...a surefire way of quitting before you start. Never try and give up your own two worse vices around the same time. I haven't even finished up with my shakes from the cigarettes and now I'm adding hunger??? Who am I trying to impress?! What the hell is wrong with me.
