V Day cards

Before I forget...I made valentines day cards for all the nieces of nephews.
Here was the one I made for the girl. Baby sis got involved and naturally drug me along to make V day cards for a forum that we visit that has to do with , what else, Twilight. so if I had to make complete strangers cards, I sure as hell was going to make them for my family.

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.
