WTF? These parents get to have kids and I don't?!?!

OK so sorry I have been away for a while. I have had a lot of things going on. I promise I will get caught up with all of you over the next few days and actually write a post. To hold you over take a look at this FABULOUS parenting job these parents are doing...

WTF? The parents of this child are allowed to procreate and I am not! This really pisses me off!

Crap, CRap and more CRAP!!!

What a week the last week has been! It has sucked to say the least! First I worked my moms driving job on Monday and I thought things went well. there were only 2 stops and it went smoothly. There was a stop where they wanted me to pick up like 20 or so HEAVY parts. When I got there I had 6 to drop off which were VERY HEAVY and I have a bad back. My mom told me to just ask them to help. I did...they did not. They told me to back up the car and they would load it with the parts they needed to return. My mom told me to tell them I could only take back 2. I did...they got mad. They then took a lot of time to give me the paper work before I could leave. I knew they were doing it on purpose so I kept a smile on my face and just waited. It did not matter to me at all...I was getting paid by the hour. Anyway, so the next my mom went and they gave her a hard time too. She then gets a call saying they called to complain about her and me and so she was fired from that route. That is a bunch of CRAP! She has worked for them for 3 years and everyone else on that route LOVE her. They kept asking about her while she was gone. The person that called to complain made up lies about what happened. Saying either I or my mom (not clear on who he said) had thrown a part across the floor. I could barely lift them so I KNOW I did not throw them! Anyway, I was very upset and feeling really bad! It really sucks when you KNOW you did nothing wrong yet you are getting screwed! Or rather my mom got screwed. I am not sure what she is going to do now and I just would really love to give someone a piece of my mind. Please say a prayer for her that she finds something soon!

Then of course I got a SEVERE toothache at 5:00 on Friday. Does that not figure? So I had to go all night before I could get into the dentist. I never slept because I was in so much pain. It came out of no where my tooth never even twinged before and then it went from 0 to I want to shoot myself in the head in 1 minute.

I got a new cell phone and have had to send it back for a new one 3 times due to no signal at my house. The latest one I received still is not getting a signal but I am still receiving calls so I am going to wait a few days to see what happens.

I applied for a job that my resume was a perfect match for. I mean everything I had in my resume was EXACTLY what they were looking for but today I get an email saying I am not qualified for that job. I just do not even understand. These people are not even reading my resume...OBVIOUSLY. IT is so so FRUSTRATING!

This week I have a million and one things to do. I really hope this week goes much better. How are things with you? I hope well...I could use some good news!

The Celebratory Society

Celebratory Soceity

Mel, in her infinite wisdom, and her ability to always seem to know exactly what I need, came up with a new idea...

Think of this as the most interesting delurking project you'll ever participate in.  After giving back to others at the Celebratory Society, I have decided to participate in it myself.  You can understand the project in full by clicking here, but in brief, the Celebratory Society is an online festschrift for a blogger--a way for you to tell me what my blog or actions mean to you.  

It feels weird to be asking for compliments but after the last year month week day I have had I could really use it. But this isn't just about me--this is about you too.  And I would love it if you returned to your own blog, started your own Celebratory Society post, added it to the main project list, and gave me the opportunity to tell you

Driving myself crazy!

This week has been kind of a crazy week. My mom had to fly down to Florida because my grandmother is not doing well at all. They are trying to figure out what to do with her since she can not be alone because she can't take care of herself. It is basically a mess and it is very aggravating to me the way my mom and Aunts are handling this but anyway...

So my mother has a job where she delivers and picks up parts from transmission shops basically all over the southern half of our state. It is crazy that she does this. I mean she drives thousands and thousands of miles a month and does not make hardly any money for it especially when you figure she basically has to get a new car every year because driving this much ruins her cars. Plus the gas, regular maintenance and the time. We have tried to tell her it makes no sense that she does this job but she does not listen. So anyway, this last week she told them she had to go to Florida to see her mother that was sick and they told her she had to find someone to cover for her and do her route. Now this route goes hours away from where she lives and she has to do it EVERY DAY. She told them off and told them they would have to find someone because they could not prevent her from going since it was an emergency. She then thought since I needed some money and I could use her car she asked me if I wanted to do it. My first reaction was NO WAY! But after some thought I realized I could use some extra money due to my current financial situation and since it really would not do anything to me because I would use her car I thought sure I would do it.

Well, let me tell you...that job sucks. First my mom tells me how she loves the new car she got. I HATE it!!! I felt like I was fighting with the car the whole time about whether or not it wanted to stay on the road. Of course I got all the stops that she said she hoped I would not get since they were so far away and hard to find. I also am a person that gets stressed out when I am driving in unfamiliar territory. Once I have been there once it is not bad but if I have no idea I HATE IT! Well seeing as so far on the 2 days I have done it all the stops have been different except one it has not been easy. On the first day after driving forever I got to the last stop and realized that I forgot to pick up a part at the previous stop I then had to backtrack 35 miles and go pick it up. It sucked! Plus I was using my moms GPS and when I had it take me home it led me right into construction hell. It took forever to get home. I would have used my phone GPS that tells when there is a traffic back up or construction but I do not have a car charger for it yet so the phone would have died when I needed it most. So there I was stuck and going crazy. It was very FRUSTRATING!

Then yesterday it was stormy and rainy and the GPS kept going out on me. I would call my mother and she tried to tell me she never had that problem with GPS on rainy days but I find that hard to believe. It did clear up later and I was able to finish without having to call my mom every 5 minutes to find out where to go. All I have to say is THANK GOD for GPS! I would have never done it had it not been for that wonderful piece of technology.

So I have 1 more day on Monday to do this and then I am done. The only thing I worry about is now my mom is talking about all this time she wants to take off and have me fill in. I told her I did want to do it for the next 24 days so I could make enough for my bankruptcy. She laughed so I am taking that as a No. Oh well, pray that Monday goes better then Thurs and Fri. went.

Today, I am feeling crappy! My sinuses are horrible and I feel like someone has knocked me over the head. tomorrow is mother's day and since my mom is not around I will be going to MIL's and I am nervous about that. We still have not talked to her and it is going to get quite unavoidable since she is expecting us to make our monthly payment to her. UGH!

I do have to say that this last week has not been the dreaded week before Mother's Day it usually is. I think its has made a big difference not working. There is no one around that is constantly saying, "what are your mother's day plans...etc"  So that is good...I guess.

Anyway, I hope all is well your way and for all the Mothers I really hope you have a WONDERFUL MOTHER"S DAY!

Bankruptcy drama

So how is everyone doing? Me I am ok I guess. I have been dealing with the whole bankruptcy thing. We ended up finding a new lawyer because the last one ended up being an idioutt. This new one is great! He gave us some good news and some bad. The good news is we can claim chapter 7 which I am very happy about. the bad part is...well a little back story.

We borrowed some money from my MIL to help purchase our car after our last one was repoed. Well it turns out that the courts may go after her for the money we have paid her and slit it between my creditors. Our lawyer told us not to pay her any more money until after we are discharged. He said to tell her that if they do go after her that we will pay her back that money as well, which obviously we will but I am TERRIFIED to tell her. I am trying to get hubby to go have a talk with her WITHOUT me. I am afraid that she blames me for all of this and she is already not happy that we are declaring bankruptcy. We have no choice though. If we do not do the bankruptcy soon we won't be able to pay her back because they are going to be garnishing hubby's wages. We received notice that they entered a default judgment against for the car so it is only a matter of weeks before they start taking there money. We also have to figure out how to pull 1200 dollars out of our butt to start the process. I am not sure how we are going to do this. It is constantly on my mind and I am so stressed out!!!!! I guess asking my MIL to borrow the money is kinds out of the we are screwed. I keep trying to tell myself this will pass. Once we get through this hard part a lot of pressure will be taken off of shoulders but that just seems so far away right now.

We went and celebrated BIL's b-day today. My nephews were cute as always. We babysat on Friday and then I saw them yesterday but when I walked in today No.ah said to me " I missed you Aunt Shell". Aww that just melts my heart. I made the cutest recording on my phone of him saying his ABC's. It is the cutest ABC's ever. I listen to it all the time just to bring a smile to my face. I am trying to figure out how to get on my computer so I can share it here. When I figure it out I will post.

Well, that is pretty much all that is going on here. Hockey is starting and as many of you probably know it is my favorite playoffs and my Red Wings are playing. Go WINGS!!!

If anyone has any advice on how to break this to my MIL PLEASE let me know. I can use all the advice I can get.

I hope all is well with you!
