Spring Snowstorm

A week after the first day of spring, and we are getting a LOT of snow. So much so that I went to let my dog out and the snow blocked the door and I had to go to the other side of the door and dig out all the snow. Not to mention the gate was frozen shut so I had to jiggle it open. AND someone either slid out of control or a snow plow knocked it over...our mailbox is snapped in half! And our shed caved in! My dad is pissed. Crazy shit.

Feelin' good

I am feeling calm and even excited for the first time in a long while. I am starting to talk to my RL friends again, after feeling like avoiding pretty much everyone for almost a month because I didn't really want to burden them with my crap. I might even start going to church again. One of my friends from there asked me if I could start coming again. Honestly, I don't see why I shouldn't. It could do good. I'm done being basically a shut in, really I am. *sighs*

I also got a call from another RL friend asking me if I could start watching her kids on a regular basis while she's at work. I love her little girls, they are ornery but really sweet, so I said 'why not?' She also said she'd pay me so I won't pretend that's not a bonus. *grins* I told her I wasn't asking for a whole lot. I'm going to meet her on Sunday to discuss the details. She lives in North Kansas City now, so depending on whether I can get there and back easily, she suggested I just stay there on the nights I'm supposed to watch the girls. There would be pros and cons to that arrangement so....I'd have to think about that.

I'm feeling pretty sleepy but I know that I won't sleep for another 3 or 4 hours. I really hate when my body does that. I woke up pretty late today. My sleep schedule's been all screwed up for a few days now, but it seems to me that I don't really fall asleep until the hour I got up. So let's say I go to bed around 3 in the morning. I won't wake up until 3 to 3:30 in the afternoon, and won't get to bed again til that same hour. This is because I don't have to get up at a certain time. At least until Monday. /Then/ I have to get up mucho early. Like 5 am. I haven't had to get up that early since high school. Dios mio. This will be an interesting 9 weeks. (Or more. My friend's job is a temp until they decide whether they'll hire her full time or not.)

Should I be worried?

So, desala, your LiveJournal reveals...



You are... 2% unique (blame, for example, your interest in rachell lutrell) and 34% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy video games). When it comes to friends you are popular. In terms of the way you relate to people, you believe in give and take. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is intellectual.

Your overall weirdness is: 18

(The average level of weirdness is: 29.
You are weirder than 37% of other LJers.)

Find out what your weirdness level is!




I'm herdlike. Don't know if I should be worried or not.

I don't think you'll have to read the article to know how bizarre this baby's name is. o.O Ickett? really?? MIA, i love you girl, but do you WANT your kid to be picked on? Dios mio.

Ahhhhhh!

holy hell you guys. o.O

Okay, so I'm an idiot. I've been wondering why I hadn't been getting my LJ comments. That's because it was under an email address that i barely check. I have no idea why I changed it or when. So...anyone who left me comments and I didn't see them...until now...I'm sorry! Don't kill me! I'll change it back. *laughs*

That is all.

Freaky Weather and Job News

Just looked at the weather today...high of 68 tommorow! Then 50s all this week, and high 40s all next week. It is very strange for Missouri this time of year. It doesn't usually get this warm until end of march, beginning of april. but my mom has been talking all winter that this spring she'll plant a veggie garden. maybe she'll get a good start...

I recieved a card last week from the company that bought the company i worked for last year. Centerplate is now Aramark, apparently.... I don't know all the details yet. Aramark invited all former Centerplate employees to apply again with them. I'm wary yet hopeful of this oppurtunity. I said to myself I would not work for them again but I do need work so I shall try again with them. So tommorow I'll go talk with them and we'll see how things work out from there.

Edit: I don't know if anyone noticed but the meme I stole from Lyndasty was the wrong one. I copied her entry and planned to erase her answers and replace it with mine to post and I put hers up instead! Eeep! *laughs*

Oct. 13th, 2008

I'm back. Earlier than I expected. Things didn't exactly work out. It feels odd to be in such a big space. My room was so small I started calling it home because it was cozy, not cramped. No drama, no dogs , no cats, it was tidy as I could make it and things weren't so damn complicated. This office feels so huge to me but I was suppose to be in a cramped office stretching my legs out when I could and chatting with my coworkers. Now i'm at home frustrated and emotionally drained. I had a disagreement with my boss. To make a long story short, it's my boss' side that the co owner took and fired my fat ass. I will say I'm not entirely blameless and I made it known that I was willing to apologize. But this one was over everyone's head, and what the owner says goes.

It's too quiet here, even with music on. Back in Rogers, Arkansas, where I was last at, we got our power from a wonky generator attached to a back of a semi. The motherfucker was loud, and it fried almost everyone's TVs the first night we were there, including mine. But I had gotten used to it in the background, and during work, the sound of the crowd and the even louder generator that provided power to the rides and such. When I stopped at walmart on the way home the crowd made me feel, well I guess normal because every night we made wal mart runs. It was where we got most of our stuff. Of course I did that back home too but I didn't do it all the time like I did when I was on the road. Back here I didn't have money, and I had at least 10 bucks on me every night when I was gone.

It was an interesting journey. I have various things I've found at fairs that I'm going to make into a little scrapbook. Mainly fair ads, newspaper clippings about the events I worked, cards for people running for various positions, things like that. Just to say I was there. I have only one picture, and it's of two of the ride jocks setting up the Ferris wheel. I don't have much money on me now, like 15 bucks. Better than nothing.

So it's back to job hunting. Not looking forward to it but I have no choice. It is good to be talking with friends again and hanging with Todd though, I will say that. So coming home early isn't all bad.

I'm pooped. I'll be hitting the sack soon, and hard. G'night.
