Horoscope/other random shit

October 31, 2006

Today will present some excellent opportunities, as long as you don’t rest on your laurels, Aries! Financially you’ll get the chance to make a few extra bucks, which will come in handy for any Halloween celebrations; you’ll just need to work that extra bit hard today!

Yeah right.  December 1 they’ll cut me a check for over 100 hours of overtime.  I wonder if the stars know that I’m a workaholic.  My family does. 😀

Saturday I went to the kids soccer game.  I yelled so hard I was tired when it was over.  Took the boys back to the house and the cooking class invited me to dinner.  Which I graciously accepted.  They made a very tasty burger with all the trimmings, fries and cookies.  Next weekend ribs are on the menu. 😀

btw – the kids lost their soccer game.  I’ll probably have a heart attack if they ever win.  They play twice this next weekend.

Love to all.  Sorry I’ve been such a slug about writing.


Another weird dream

October 28, 2006

OMG – I dreamed I got married again.  The problem is that I dont’ remember who it was.  I do however know that it was not a dream about a past marriage, because I remember saying I can’t believe there is going to be a number *@#!

I don’t hate anyone enough to do that to them – really I don’t


Brain dead

When one of the bastard clan gets writers block the whole friggin family gets it.  We’re close like that. 😀

I’ve been having a lot of fun carving pumpkins and creating ink blots for my shrink. 

Work is what it is…..dealing with the grown ups most of the time it is work.  Dealing with the kids is a gift that God blesses me with.

The youngest bastard in the making, Ryan, turned two years old today.  He is the youngest of the clan, even younger than the great grandkids.  Holy shit sometimes I feel old.  Mostly though I am in denial.  I pretend that I adopted my children when I was 10…..and so were they.  😀


Weird dreams

October 22, 2006

I dreamed I was walking down the hall at work, holding my clothes in one hand and a towel around my naked body in the other.

 Shit, that nightmare must have been the result of something I ate.  It must have been rotten too. 😀


Yes! A day off!!!

October 15, 2006

In the past two weeks I’ve put in 35 hours of overtime.  Need I say more about why I haven’t posted?

For the past three or four years I’ve had Friday and Saturday for my days off (which makes no frigging difference if you don’t take them).  This week I’ve changed to Sunday and Monday.  It actually feels weird having a Sunday off.  I slept 9 1/2 hours last night – it was an all-nighter. 😀 

I went to church this morning, came home grabbed a bite to eat and took a wonderful nap.  I’ve done absolutely nothing.  No cooking, no cleaning.  Just vegging out.  It is wonderful. 

I’m grateful for my job, my home, my family.  But for today I’m a slug.  I’m doing nothing.  And to anyone who doesn’t like it….fuck you in the neck with my extra pillow. 😀


Speed Traps

October 10, 2006

In Richardson, Texas State Trooper was running radar. He had a perfect spot to watch for speeders, but wasn’t getting any. Then he discovered the problem. A 12 year old boy was standing up the road with a hand painted sign which read “RADAR TRAP AHEAD!” The officer later found a young accomplice down the road with a sign reading, “TIPS” and a bucket full of money. (And we used to just sell lemonade!)

BETTER:                            

A motorist was mailed a picture of his car speeding through an automated radar post in Plano, Texas. A $40 speeding ticket was included. Being cute, he sent the police department a picture of $40.  The police responded with another mailed photo of handcuffs. BEST:

A young woman was pulled over in Austin, Texas for speeding.  As the TX State Trooper walked to her car window, flipping open his ticket book, she said, “I bet you are going to sell me a ticket to the Texas State Police Ball.” He replied, “Texas State Troopers don’t have balls.”
There was a moment of silence while she smiled and he realized what he’d just said. He then closed his book, got back in his patrol car and left.  She was laughing too hard to start her car.


weekend

October 7, 2006

The kids and volunteers had a booth at the church craft fair.  We made about $200.00 and had a ball.  I took 8 kids last night and they had an incredible time.  I think it is the first time they’d been to a fair in their teens when they did not do drugs or get into trouble.  Our priest was dressed in baggy shorts and a tee-shirt and hung out with the kids all night.  You couldn’t tell the difference in him and the boys. 

I went in early this morning to put up another load and ended up transporting kids to their soccer game.  That was fun too.  They lost, but we all had a good time.

After lunch it was back to the craft fair.  The kids I took today were more subdued.  Everyone was getting tired from a busy day.  I took them back to the ranch tonight, barely slowed down and kicked them out at the front door.  I don’t think they were hurt. 😀  Not really.  So on my day off I spent 13 hours with kids and an hour and a half driving. 

I need my head examined.  It was fun though.

UPDATE:

I checked my blog this morning and found that the post didn’t get published when I wrote it, but was saved.  I love wordpress.
