Sorry I have been gone so long. I have so much to tell, but little inclination to sit and write. Not cuz I don't want to write, just cuz I am so ...overwhelmed by the crap in my life.

My darling sister in law is at it again. She let that asshat back in after the whole lawyer fiasco. I am not getting sucked in, I am NOT. I don't care what he does, she is on her own as far as I am concerned. He can scale her second floor balcony and steal her pay cheque every week, it is not my problem.

Still, it pisses me off.

Hubby is still out of work. I am not sure what the eff is happening..I know that the economy is going down hill, I know that people are cutting back, less spending, yada yada yada..Still, there has to be some work out there.

Hubby is feeling useless, and worthless and of course, he is cranky. I don't really blame him. I know that so much of his ego is wrapped in his work and his earning capability. There was a time when we lived life large, no worries, money to spare. Those days are long gone and we are resorting to other methods to pay our bills.

We still have our middle daughters bf living here with us. I am really struggling with this. Don't get me wrong, he is a nice kid. Sweet enough, and good to my girl. He is also, however, a spaz that makes me crazy and I am losing my mind at the lack of privacy in our tiny house.

Add to that the fact that his mother (he is 17) pays almost nothing to have him here. My Hubby has not worked full time since November..In fact, his entire income from Jan, Feb, and March is $600. Now, the boys mother knows that we have no money but feel as though she has no irresponsibility to care for her son.


Since when is he our problem?? I took this kid in out of the goodness of my heart (there is some goodness in there somewhere, I swear) and she has given us a whopping $140 in 7 + months. No, not a month, that is the total for all 7 + months.

Yup, then she has the nerve to call me a fucking lunatic to my kid.

Damn right I am. Who else would take in another woman's kid and give him the best Christmas of his life, pay for his grad photo proofs, his bus pass, body wash, tooth paste, everything without so much as a thank you?

That's right. His mother has never even thanked me.


It's not all bad news though.

My Hubby and I saw Motley Crue a couple of weeks ago with our eldest girl and her bf. Man, I saw SO much porn!

Lol. It made me itchy to watch it with my kid (even if she is 21) but we all had so much fun.

So, that's the long and short of it. Lots going on, too much head clogging crap. Life is like that, I suppose.

I leave with a joke that made me smile.


I was shopping at the local supermarket where I selected:

A half-gallon of 2% milk,

A carton of eggs,

A quart of orange juice,

A head of romaine lettuce,

A 2 lb. can of coffee, and

A 1 lb. package of bacon.

As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind me watched as I placed the items in front of the cashier.

While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated, 'You must be single.'I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelicts intuition, since I was indeed single. I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status.

Curiosity getting the better of me, I said: 'Well, you know what, you're absolutely right. But how on earth did you know that?'The drunk replied, 'Cause you're ugly
