Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.


Feels like a Monday

Since yesterday was a holiday, today REALLY feels like a Monday to me.

My dad is having a colonoscopy today. He couldn't eat anything yesterday and I felt really bad when he made my all-time favorite meal of his - noodles and meat along with mashed potatoes. He was having to drink what seemed like gallons of water and nothing solid. Yuck. I told him that I hoped everything came out ok. He shot me a dirty look and then started laughing.

Got a call this morning from the surgeon's office that my ultrasound results are in and the doctor wants me to come in to discuss the results. My instant reaction was one of panic, but he did that to me last time when he just needed to tell me that it was a fibroadenoma and was no big deal. So, I'm trying not to worry, but can't help it. He could get me in on Monday, but that is my first day of work, I'm not going to do that to my new boss. So, I'm going to go in on Thursday morning the 27th. I asked the nurse if she could tell me if it was good or bad and she said she didn't know, but she thought if it was bad, the doctor would fit me in sooner. So, I'll take that as a good sign.

Stinkerbelle will be having her class pictures at her Children's Day Out program that day, so she'll go back to CDO that morning to get her picture made. One of the teachers there is a friend of mine and she is going to take Little Bit home with her after preschool is out. So, that worked out well.

One of the stars, Ruth Warrick, from the one and only soap opera I ever watch died. All My Children is the only show I've watched consistently since I was a kid (my mom watched it and got my hooked, which is bad). I don't watch that crap hardly at all any more because it just kills brain cells every time I do it. I sit there and wonder why I watch. So, when I discovered that Deep Space Nine is on the same time, I stopped watching.

I'm going to do career day Friday for my boys at their school. Should be fun. I'm trying to wrap up some stories this week before I start the new job. I gotta go pee in a cup today for pre-placement drug testing. Yippee, can't wait. Promised the kids I'd take them to the airport to see where mom is going to work. Stinkerbelle went with me last week, but Hot Rod is anxious to see the airplanes. I will drive under a couple runways and last time an American Airlines plane was driving over us.

Yesterday was nice. Hot Rod and I got him some much-needed new shoes, got me a new dictionary and went to eat ice cream. Then, we visited Birthday Boy again. 1 of 5 (my best friend from childhood) said my therapeutic boot makes me look like a Rescue Hero. Ha ha. Very funny. But, now that I look at it, I sort of do look like that. *shrug*

Hot Rod got to drive Birthday Boy's tractor, which he thoroughly enjoyed. The other kid was another friend that was visiting, too.

Visited with my parents for a while last night. They kept Stinkerbelle Sunday and Monday. She loves to stay with them.

Better go get everyone ready for the day. Got hair to cut, pee to be put in a cup and airplanes to see. The boys are back in school tomorrow.

    That you watched AMC and got hooked on it by your mom just made me laugh. So did I. I haven't watched it in years, but I bet if I sat down and watched I could figure out pretty quickly what's going on. I used to go home from school for lunch and my mom also came home from work for lunch so we would watch it for a half and hour. She's been watching it since the very first show. She no longer is at the job where she could go home for lunch, but I'm fairly certain she tapes it!

    I did that forever until just a few years ago. My best friend watched it, too. Don't know if she still does. I got really disgusted with the show last summer when Bianca's baby was switched with Babe's and all that shit. *shaking my head*

    Just realized that I'm too smart to watch this crap. Unless of course, I'm checking out Tad. Meow!

    Also miss Jake and Noah. Those were some hotties. Edmund was good before he got paralyzed and then he got all whiney. Ryan is hot, too, now that I think about it. Leo was cute for a skinny boy.

    I'm so scared that I know all these names STILL.

    I still remember Billy Clyde and Estelle, Donna, etc. Those were the OLD days. Nina and Cliff were the Romeo and Juliet of the show.

    *shaking my head and backing away slowly*
