LOL...I'd have done that too with the car remote. I've used the remote to find my car too. HaHa. People respond in such odd ways.
Yeah, she did look pretty beat up. Like she'd been in a car accident or somethhing. There was a lady we knew who worked in a local dollar store we went to a lot, so she knew us. Said she saw us in Walmart when we went into the dollar store the next day. No makeup, but she was relieved. Said she looked like she went through a window or something.View Thread
OOOOHHHHH...Speaking of the girls and my best friend. Halloween before last the little on wanted to be Chuckie for Halloween. So I started on her makeup in like Sept so when Halloween came around, it would look good. The first time we did it, she wouldn't let us take the makeup off and we needed to go to Walmart to shop. It was freaking hilarious cause people were doing absolute 180's once the saw her. She was having a blast just smiling at all the attention she was getting. Everyone thought her injuries were genuine. For Halloween we spray painted her hair with orange hairspray. The whole costume with a fake knife and she ran around asking everyone "wanna play?"
This was what she looked like on the trip to Walmart View Thread
Everyone always says I am a crack up. I have no idea why.
Remember the Geico commercial where the pig hung out the window of the car with the pinwheel?
My best friend's girls who were 5 and 3 at the time DARED me to do it. So we made a cardboard pinwheel and attached a straw to it. I waited until we were in the middle of town, stretched out the window as far as I could with the seat belt on, stuck the pinwheel out and did the piggie "wuh, wug, weeeee, weeeee, weeee" all through town. The kids and my best friend were dying the whole time. My kids don't believe me, so I made one here and they're afraid I might. LOLView Thread
It has been rough and it always seems like more comes as I get rid of it. I'm tired. But somehow I am hanging in there. I honestly don't know how. Maybe because I am this close to getting the kids back. Or maybe it's because hubs is going through such a really bad time. I honestly don't know, especially with my own health issues.
I've had 2 pdocs rule out conversion disorder. An opthalmologist tell me that there is nothing wrong with the eyes or the muscles. But they aren't moving properly. As in they're going in different directions or slower or something. He said that it is definately neuro. The brain and the nerves that control the eye movement aren't working properly. So he fell very short of but definately implied a TIA. And every day my vision deteriorates in the one eye that is somewhat ok. If I'm tired, everything is blurry. My normal eye glasses make it worse, and he said the prescription is totally wrong but he wants me to be seen by a neuro before he prescribes anything or sends me to an optometrist.
I'm looking for that job, but anything call center related or directly phone related scares the living poo right out of me. I'd like to do something with people, but I'm afraid I'll have one of those "moments" at the tiniest stress. Especially on whatever else I have going on.
Hubs is resting and will start his rehab program on the 26th. I'm trying to hold on until that is begun so I am less worried about a relapse. He's serious this time for a change. He's still having a few issues. Saw our grandbaby for the first time in MONTHS yesterday and it was the first time I'd seen him that happy in a long time.
As for me, I see the neuro on the 14th and it's only going to mean one test after another. I already know what they're going to say - TIA. But the damage is done. With everything going on, I could be going blind. My other senses are already compensating for the loss of the right eye and the deterioration of the other. The headaches are horrible. If I don't have a full night of rest, like last night with Junior, the eye strain is unbelievable. I have a patch that I don't normally wear outside of the house, but it was so bad this morning, I wore it to OT. I keep telling hubs whose stress is my loss of eyesight that people live blind all the time. I will adjust. He will adjust. And Lighthouse for the Blind will be an asset in getting me through it IF it comes to that. But who the heck knows?View Thread
Yeah...on total disability, but trying the ticket-to-work again. The Avon thing I tried crashed and burned big time cause I couldn't handle the stress.
The thing is, with all the medical stuff going on the bills are piling up. Hubs was working on and off at the labor pool to help cover things, but with him being 100% out of commission now, we're short big time. As in, I'm going to have to go down to social services and beg for assistance. He's hot all the time, even with the cooler weather. He's sweating bullets which means the air is set way low and that means sky high electric. Bills are late because of the lack of $. And I've reached a point this month where with everything going on, that I've told the ex it might be better if he kept the kids for the weekends because I cannot afford to feed them and change to the heathier diet options so hubs lives between the diabetes and the heart stuff.
I am wanting to do something consistant but PT but I need to find it. In the meantime, labor pool it is. And if no work, them I am going to go one off later in the day and do applications. I'm 40 years old and competing with babies, so to speak, for the jobs. I just....oh I don't know.
I guess the last couple months of one thing after another are just finally catching up. And Mon I see my new pdoc for the first time, and one of my issues is too many meds and their neuro impacts...so I'm expecting a med change as well. Wooohooo.View Thread
So you were trying to start a riot, huh? LOL. I'd probably do something like that too. HAHA. I know I've said some pretty nasty things to people in the store about cutting lines. But not that bad! ^5View Thread
Oh I've got tons of Black Friday stories. JCPenny's had a sale on pillows for $4 that were normally $30. They've got one of those pallet bins with them in the front of the store and of course a plethera of women descend and begin to fight over the 40 pillows or so that would fit in there. I watched this amused for a good 5 minutes. I'd come for the same pillows. Soooooo...I get bored, start roaming through the pillow section...and look!!! 3 full racks of the SAME pillow. So I take my 8, stuff them in the cart and make it a point to walk by these dumb women literally getting ready to go to blows. One notices my cart stuffed full and just stops still. Points to me. All eyes turn to me. And I went, "So.....you idiots fight over pillows here and there's at least 3 racks full in the PILLOW section you dumb b's" and I go off to check out with no line cause of course chaos is all over the store.View Thread
UGHH...First of all I want to be clear that I am not liking the whole webMD thing right now. I can't find posts and such!
Anyways, with dh completely out of commission, I am having to re-enter the working world. Figured I'd start with some temporary labor stuff because my computer office skills pretty much sucketh and I don't want to do phone work in call centers anyways.
Well, not only do I have to BE at the Labor Pool by 5:45, I have to sit and listen to the male chauvenist comments from the workers. Then there's the outright discrimination against women even though the office is staffed with ALL women. Job came up this morning for laying Pergo flooring and laminate tiles. Easy peasy stuff and I got passed up for some man. By 8:30, I finally left.
I'm not scared of the people there, I'm just scared about working period. The last attempt failed miserably. And now, I really don't have any choice.View Thread
Year before...hubs went with not the crazy girl, but the other one. She and I can be a little bit crazy too...well...more than. We'll be walking through stores and a song will come on, we'll simultaneously start dancing down aisles and singing along. People thing we're nuts. Anyways, just the way she is. We hit Walmart first, divide up with lists. Hubs thinks it's completely crazy as we stand him at the pallet for a $10 some kind of appliance. They're pushing and shoving and he's a pretty big guys but manages the crowd to spite his rising anxiety and paranoia. Friend and I finish our lists in record time and make it back to him. He's just standing there as the pallet empties so we muscle through the crowd, yell catch!, and throw him a box about 30 ft. away.
Then we hit Bealls with is a big FL store like TJ Maxx or Marshalls. Anyways, again the list. Separation. Except in the racks and people we can't find each other. So we're roaming through the store yelling "Marco" waiting for one of us to answer "Pollo" We found each other, but it started the whole store doing it. Apparently the same people went to the same next store and we were all roaming around yelling it.View Thread
Going not so sexy right now....but hilariously funny.
Picture this: Three very uninhibited mom's with a 15 yr old boy shopping on black Fri. 2 moms in jeans, but one doing the whole people of walmart thing. Fuzzy jammie bottoms, big baggy t-shirt, no bra, well endowed. Ds1 loving black fri cause he's a people watcher. All of our taste in music except ds1's is varied, so we keep switching channels. 4th store, so ds1 has settled into the routine.
So she cranks it up. We're all singing along...sort of dancing in out seats....so she cranks it all the way up and she's got a system in it that is blastin. She jumps out of the drivers seat, throwd the back door to the mini van open and then starts to dance and sing as loud as she could....going absolutely crazy....things bouncing everywhere. DS1 turns like 10 shades of red. I'm debating joining her. She's drawing a crowd now. T shirt was scoop neck and I swear her you know whats touched her chin a few times. Instead I did into my purse and fish out a couple singles....try to get ds1 to tip her.....and she finally turns to us on the last refrain and I reached in and stuffed the dollar bills between her breasts.
So now if he's mouthing off in public I start to quietly sing and wiggle around and he quits. He tested that once and I went crazy and he was so embarrased. My friend wants to know when we are going "dancing" again. LOLView Thread
