Nice title! Just to warn you I’m in one of those moods. My head hurts and I’m as grumpy as an elephant without a trunk (ha ha).
Do I look old
Yesterday I went to Wal-mart (fabric at a good price), hate going their otherwise (I’m more of a Target girl). While in the fabric area, my dad came with Julia. Well as soon as Julia saw me, she wanted to sit in my cart. So, I placed her in. While walking around and looking the sales woman comes up to me and says, “Is this your granddaughter?” What are you smoking?! I wanted to yell. Do I look like I could be a grandmother. I know my hip and knee hurt at times (and I feel like a grandmother), but I didn’t think I looked like a grandmother. I usually get the compliment of how young I look. I guess my weekend away in Tioga made me look 25 years older. And the funny thing was, she was just talking about how she was going to be a grandmother.
I want out
I want out of the city for the following reasons. I’m starting to loose my cool with some people around here. So, watch the news. You might see about an old looking 30 year old who went crazy and took out her whole street. So, here are my reasons.
- I’m tired of smelling the neighbors smoke coming into my house. I can’t stand that I have to close my doors and windows when they light up. Don’t they get the message, every time they light up my door slams shut and windows close. Don’t they hear me complain rather loudly about their toxic fumes coming into my house and the damage they are causing to my children.
- College students. I know I was one, but do they have to be so loud on a Monday night at 12:30 am?
- Someone stole my plant off of my porch. I have had my plants on the front porch for 7 fricken years during the summer and no one has bothered them, until this weekend. I’m ready to go and search houses. I bet reason #2 did it.
- Parking – due to reason #2. They take every spot in the world up.
Did I make the right choice?
I’m still doubting my choice of switching jobs. Today was the first student day back and I was bored out of my mind. I wanted to help so bad, but every time I went to help, they asked me to stop. I just don’t get it. Whenever I had an extra hand in the classroom I loved it! I wasn’t able to get work done because my supervisor and others were in my office using my computer, so I basically read about some of the tests I need to perform. I know you all keep telling me it takes time, but how much?
