I wanted to put "that's what she said" after I typed that, but I was trying so hard to be good.

I won't even repeat what Mr. Spring said when he came in from work yesterday and I was slicing peaches. I live with a hormonal 17 year old boy.

Now how can I have a proper self pity-party when you guys are so great??? I can't even muster up another tear. Not feeling lonely or weird anymore. Tra la la.

Didn't mean to leave anyone out: xcptnl, moppy, tnb, rcw, all pets, etc.

Sorry: brain works on half-energy in high humidity. Also thinking about screaming "OHMYGOD will you SHUTUP?!" at dogs working on crunchy chew toy but am refraining since it's all MY FAULT for buying it in the first place but GEEZ! Will you guys give me a break? (Dogs not curlies.)

Where'd you get the peaches? A farmer's market? I've been a peach-buying maniac over the last few weeks. But I don't think they're at peak season yet. I've made 3 or 4 peach cobblers/pandowdies with subpar peaches. Still good, but there's nothing like a sweet peach...

springy, you just made me feel a WHOLE lot better!



(alas, i cannot access any video from work... it will all have to wait until i get home.)
The parts I caught last night did me in. The opening of the show has the whole famdamily (minus pappy) standing still like they are posing for a picture, until that picture shattered thanks to mama letting one rip. 1st class, all the way.

I can actually understand them just fine, but that's a job hazard. Lol.

I hope you get a chance to watch the videos. 1 & 2 are ridiculous and routine. The last I find hysterical, but I have a strange fondness for drug hallucination calls.

Wow @ the storm passing over my house. I'm waiting to see Toto blow by.

My Aunt brought homemade lemon poppyseed and chocolate cupcakes She's so sweet.


Worn out iPhone. Need I say more?

She'll say she's stressed over things (right now, it's' selling her house), and medicates herself by drinking two bottles of wine and that's when she just gets SO vicious and nasty and the things she gets angry about...and that's when everything is all my fault.

Last night, I was making conversation. This woman I work with left her job because she was living apart from her husband for over a year because of his job and it took a toll on them. She obviously wanted to live with her husband. Then her husband got a job in our city and she asked to come back. They didn't tell her no yet.

My mom said, "The DIFFERENCE between her and ME is that I would have LOOKED for another job."

('Cuz my mom's perfect and we should all be just like her.)

I was HONESTLY JUST MAKING CONVERSATION, as in, "Gee, I know how hard it is to get a job, so I can understand she at least TRIED to get the job back she had for four years."

My mom went ABSOLUTELY BALLISTIC on me. I have NO IDEA WHERE IT CAME FROM OR WHAT THE HELL SHE WAS TALKING ABOUT. Just SCREAMING at me that HOW DARE I CHALLENGE HER and TAKE "SOME PUNK KID'S SIDE OVER HER." (WHAT THE EFF?)

I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT SHE WAS EVEN TALKING ABOUT. She was possessed and crazed and very drunk.

Of course, this led her to start SCREAMING at me about what a loser I am, about how I've lost jobs, how I need to grow-up/wake-up.

ALL THIS STEMMED FROM ME MAKING CONVERSATION.

She even started screaming about how I "attacked" her about how she doesn't like gay people last week.

She disgusts me. I've had it with her. I can't be around her.

I'm looking at apartments every week. Only two were offered to me...one out of my budget and the other was just really disgusting and the roommate was a pothead, which I wouldn't be comfortable with.

She makes me a nervous wreck. She makes me crazy. She ruins ANY good thing in my life. I can't even TELL her about anything good that happens because she uses it against me. I can't tell her anything BAD that happens because even if she's supportive for five minutes, she'll turn around and use it against me in a few weeks.

I can't do it anymore Sometimes I'm just so scared I can never be healthy and happy because she's just done so much damage. I feel like she's killed my confidence and my spirit, and any other positive reinforcement I get from other people and areas of my life, she just overshadows and destroys.

Mmmm pie. Should I eat the rhubarb pie that I brought to work now or later? Why does it taste better with this pie rather than the one I made a few months ago? Was the rhubarb not ready yet? It sure was big enough. Or was the difference the butter I used in the crust last time and the Crisco the SO used this time? Inquiring minds want to know.

CIBC, have you ever read up on ACoA (Adult child of an alcoholic parent)? I found it very helpful.

cibc, have you looked into Al-Anon? I don't have first hand experience with them, but I believe they can be very helpful for the families of those with alcohol or drug abuse issues.

(((more hugs)))

eta: scrills beat me to it. I don't know the difference between the organizations, but I hope you can get some support for yourself on this, you don't have to deal with it alone.

From a fruit stand that sells local produce. These were freestone and HUGE. I only needed 3 and had almost 4 cups of fruit.

I wish Hope still covered 100% but I am grateful that it covers 80% of tuition...but books! Ugh. It used to cover $100 and the student paid the rest out of pocket. Now books are 100% the students responsiblity.

Will not complain. Can't complain. Nothing to complain about! It's the only reason I am able to go to school right now.

I don't want to start an Olympics controversy, so I'll post it here:

I understand why doping and deliberately losing are wrong; and insulting and discriminatory tweets are off limits, but getting drunk one time is enough to get kicked out of the Olympics? Most of these people are barely out of their teens, if even, and maturity levels vary.......

I feel that if an athlete is foolhardy enough to be willing to compete despite a hangover, good luck to him.
