And since when do you have to act a certain way if something bad happened to you? How do you even act like you know everything that's happened to me. And just because I don't bring everything bad up all the time to try to get sympathy doesn't mean it never happened. I know plenty of people who've told only me when something has happened to them and they don't act any different. MOST PEOPLE DON'T LIKE CONSTANTLY RELIVING BAD THINGS THAT HAVE HAPPENED TO THEM!

Okay, since my last little rant I feel a bit better. I think my complaining and frustration was partly because I was/am in pain, just generally don't feel good and was just frustrated at Corie. When she gets frustrated she whines and complains and yells and blames everyone (read:me) about even the tiniest things, like having to do dishes. She has it decided in her head that even though she's mom and doesn't have a paying job out of the house, it's still not fair that the only things she has to do around the house are dishes (not many since she insists we use foam/paper plates) and clean the kitchen. Somehow that's unfair to her. I don't get it. But it makes sense to her and that's all she cares about. Even if the rest of us don't understand. She gets mad if we point out that it doesn't make sense. And since a lot of the time all I do is listen to her complain, I get frustrated. And that causes fights because i question her and she thinks no one should question her.

I know I shouldn't really feel like any of this is my fault, but I wasn't really in a great mood. That made me more easily frustrated. I don't know. I think their trip to Chicago will be good. I'll be rid of her and she'll be rid of me. And afterward, when I have a little money, I'll be going to the movies. I plan on seeing Star Trek and X-men Origins:Wolverine.

The side effects of my antibiotics are starting already. I just hope my stomach-ache doesn't get as bad as last time. So far nothing too bad, so... Keeping my fingers crossed.

That's about all for now. I guess I should actually pay attention to the epis of house I'm watching right now, huh?

for about a week now. The kids were on spring break and brother has been working 7 days a week so I haven't had a lot of time online. I can pretty much keep up reading, but not post when I want to. Hopefully soon that will change. Brother and Corie are going to Chicago in 3 weeks and I told dad that I ant the comp set up down here before they leave. Brother has it up in their room, but I need dad's computer desk before he can bring it down. Dad got rid of the nice big office desk it was on.

Busy week last week. Like I said, kids were home and didn't go back to school until the 14th. Three obnoxious boys at home all the time = very little sleep for me. Not to mention Easter. Apparently, Easter is Thomas' fave holiday. The whole week they had off school, every single day, he'd ask if it was Easter yet. Easter day was no fun. Mostly because when I was changing the bandage on my toe, I noticed that something just wasn't right. I called my dad down to look at it and he said it looked discolored and I should probably go into the ER and get it checked out as that's how Uncle had lost his foot. One day he went into the Dr. with a slightly discolored toe, they waited 3 days for it to heal and the next thing you know, he's had to get half his foot lopped off. Yeah. Needless to say, that didn't make me too confident. Then when I was putting on my shoes and Corie was coming down the stairs she's all, "Are you going somewhere?" I tell her where and why. [very put out] "I guess we'll have to take the kids with us to the store then..." [/very put out] Thanks for the concern.

Spent a good 2 1/2 hours in the ER, saw one of the few competent docs there. I have, yet another, serious infection. When she told me they "don't do anything for toe's here, unless it's a fracture", I got the idea it's policy for them to just tell you to see a specialist. And why not. All the ones they suggest you see have offices in the hospital. Anyway, she had the nurse take a culture then scrub and soak my foot, which is more than any of the others had done. She then prescribed me 2 antibiotics and Vicodin. Dad picked up the antibiotics but not the Vic. If it doesn't stop hurting like this soon, though, I may see if him or brother will get it for me when they get paid.

Came home and everyone else was gone. They pulled in a couple minutes later. "We're gonna take the kids to town and spend some time with them." Big surprise, since Easter dinner had yet to be started! So, in pain and infected me and dad had to do most of the dinner ourselves. Oh, and just a little before the stuff we did was ready they came home. "Oh, we have to go back to town because we forget (a), (b) and (c) for dinner. We'll be back soon." 2 hours later and a phone call to do one of her dishes later they come strolling in. Yeah, thanks. No, I'll live and yes, I still have my foot...for now. Thanks for the concern, you guys.

And since Sunday and the doc (one whom Corie trusts as well) said I have to try to stay off my foot as much as possible until the infection gets much better, things have been tense. Monday she did the laundry (usually my job) and put away 1 barely full basket of the kids' clothes and had a fit about it. Then last night or this morning she says "I've been doing everything..." FOR 2 DAYS! Get off your high horse and accept the fact that someone else needs your help for once. God forbid anything should make her life any harder or inconvenience her at all.

And now they're home and I'll have to get off here. Guess I'll have to finish this rant and the other stuff I wanted to say later. As usual. *sigh*
domino43: (Depressed)
Sorry I haven't been back online. The internet has been back on since August 12th, but no one will help me finish clearing out my room so I can get my computer set up. They outright refuse.

Everything else is crap. I keep getting yelled at for things that I say. Completely innocent comments. And I actually got told I'm not allowed to go anywhere or do anything. Yes, at almost 28, I get told I have to stay here all the time just because I have no money (not totally my fault) and no car (again, not my fault). I'm stuck here with kids 24/7 and am not allowed a break. One of these days I'm going to take off without saying anything so people have to deal with their own kids and will realize how much I actually do. Maybe I'll get the appreciation I deserve if I leave for a week or two. Yeah, and I got told that I do nothing. Exactly. Oh, and I better make sure Corie doesn't find out about this entry. I also got told I couldn't talk about things that happen here to other people.

Anyway, I swiped dad's comp and internet to check my email, but it won't let me log in. And when I try to reset the password it says I can't reset my password online... O.o Huh?

I should get going and try to check my email again. Besides, dad is going to want his computer back any minute I'm sure. Hopefully I can get some help soon (HA! Fat chance)and can get the comp set up.

I've decided ^that^ is Ryan's new theme song. The twins went to the dentist Monday. I guess Ryan was being mouthy and kept telling the hygienist that he didn't have to do what she said and to get her hands out of his mouth. At least once he told her, "I will bite you." And he did. They had to do his x-rays 3 times because he was moving so much. The boy is a freak of nature. He's 5 1/2 and he's got all his baby teeth. Like, including his 6 and 12-year molars. How does a 5-year-old have his 12-year molars already? They weren't concerned about it. He's also got his first loose tooth. That should fall out by this weekend. They also said he should have all his adult teeth before too long at the rate his teeth are growing. He also has 2 cavities. He's going back Friday to get them fixed. Because of how much he moved, they're thinking they'll have to knock him out to do it. They don't want to accidentally drill his gums or cheek. RobbieThomas'* exam went well. Dentist said his teeth are perfect. He was extremely well behaved considering this was their first trip to the dentist and he was terrified for the whole week or two before they went.
*They're changing his name to Thomas as soon as they get the DNA results in a week or so. Gotta start calling him that now.

OMG. I'm about to rip my hair out. Connor is driving me batty. He's gotten to his "terrible 2s" even though he's nearly 4. He's gotten extremely nosey and has this sense of entitlement. It's crazy. And he will not listen to me no matter what. None of my punishments work, none of Corie's, none of brother's. He'll cry and then be good for a little while, then go right back to what he was doing to get him in trouble. I'm about to string him up by the toes.

Brother is on vacation this week. They were going to take the kids to the zoo Saturday, but I just found out that they can't afford it now. They spent more than half the money he had left driving around looking for a certain pipe they needed for the new well pump. Turns out they didn't absolutely need it. Dad just cut it off for them and he's just going to set it about a foot higher in the well. It won't hurt anything. They've been over there everyday, all day working on getting the house all clened and everything fixe and stuff moved around since Saturday. Everyone has to be out of here in 1 1/2 - 2 weeks. It's going to be hectic. Brother wants to start moving things like movies and books over starting tomorrow. Besides a few appointments they have for the next couple of days, they'll be out there the rest of the week. Their zoo trip was supposed to be my break from the kids. WAAAH! No I'm not going to get a break for who knows how long. I'm going to go insane by next week.

Plus, I haven't been sleeping well. I'm tired all day. And my back has been hurting. And I've been having headaches everyday. Yelling at Connor all time isn't helping those. I think part of it is CONNOR these kids getting me so frustrated all the time lately. And Corie turns the A/C on as soon as it hits 70 outside. I get cold and it hurts my joints. I keep telling her that just b/c it's 70 outside doesn't mean it it inside. And she leaves it on all night. The bedroom is a couple rooms away from the kitchen, where the A/C is, and it gets really hot in there at night. I understand that. But then it gets chilly in the living room. It makes it a bit uncomfortable for me. I NEED A VACATION! I can't wait til we're all moved in. I need a real bed again and I can take naps when I do. And the twins should be starting kindergarten in the middle of August. YAY.

Ugh. I guess that's about it for now. I really need to get to bed. I should probably eat something, since all I've had today is some ramen and french fries for lunch but i think I'm too tired. bleh.
domino43: (Depressed)
WARNING: Exclamtion point and possible CAPS LOCK abuse ahead!!

I am dangerously close to having dad come get me and leaving these kids here by themselves! If I was a MUCH worse person, I think they'd be covered in bruises by now! Brother and Corie went to a concert tonight. Well, it was in Detroit, so they had to leave at 3 in order to get there a little early. Well, the kids were good for the first hour or so. Then they suddenly got horrible. They went outside by themselves, got into brother's bedroom and got stuff they know they're not allowed to touch, won't stay grounded, and Ryan just said the F-word to me! Like right this second! They've been SO BAD today that I have a REALLY upset stomach, like I've nearly thrown up a couple times, and I have a headache because of them, too. I know part of the reason they're being so bad fopr me is that we haven't had a breack from each other in about 2 WEEKS. 24 HOURS A DAY! They're fed up with me and I'm fed up with them. I've had a short fuse with them for the last week. I think that I'm going to hide out and probably nap all afternoon tomorrow. I tried to lie down in brother's bedroom for 5 minutes earlier, but they started playing with the NEW phone/answering machine.

I can't take much more of this. I'm about to rip out my hair and I think they're giving me an ulcer. I'm serioulsy close to walking out the door and not coming back and not ever showing my face around these kids again! I NEED A VACATION!! I wish I had somewhere to go for even ONE DAY. I have a cousin that said I could go over there, but she has 2 kids that are 4 and 1 1/2, so it really wouldn't be much of a break. True, it wouldn't be THESE kids, but her daughter, the 4 year-old, is just like them!

And all I got out of this lousy deal was a $5 footlong from subway! And that was my lunch AND dinner.

And now the kids won't shut up and go to sleep! AAAHHH!!!!

So, I haven't read the interview, but I think people are over-reacting a bit with this whole boycott thing. Yes, communication is key in a business. Yes, users should be informed of changes before they happen. Yes, LJ has been a bit lax on those things recently. Every company has their faults. Every company has times they lack. I just think the whole thing is being over-exaggerated. And everyone starting Insane Journals because of it? Maybe it's the conspiracy theorist in me, but did someone from Insane Journal make the first post about moving over there? Come on. What are the chances EVERYONE who's "fed-up" with LJ lately just happens upon Insane Journal?

Onto the things (that I know of) that people seem to be boycotting for.
1) Fanfics being "targeted" by the filter. Guess what, it's all been fixed and is back to normal. Already taken care of. No need to boycott for it.
2) No new Basic accounts. Umm...How many of you actually have a Basic account? And how many of them have been created recently? How many were planning to create a new Basic account in the future? Exactly. I thought so. Are the ads really THAT much of a problem? If you have that much of a problem with ads, you'd better just turn off that computer you're sitting at and get off the internet.

Okay. I just read the interview. I think people are blowing it out of proportion. People are all, "he's saying the boycott is blackmail". Um...isn't it? You're saying, if you don't do what we want, we're leaving. I do believe that's the working definition of blackmail. (brother just pointed out that that would technically be extortion, but...) I think these people are just mad that they're being called out.

Anyway, I don't plan on participating in the boycott and I think it's not going to work. If I happen to not post on Friday, it's totally coincidental. In fact, I may try to post on purpose. Just because I think the boycott is pointless and stupid.

[ETA]If you disagree, if you agree, please feel free to state your opinion and why. I'm not going to jump on you for it.[/ETA]

Okay, this is probably going to be a long rant about health issues. Feel free to skip it.

Okay, where to start. I guess the first thing on my mind is my psoriasis. It's been getting progressively worse over the last year or so. i guess my health in general has, but this is the most noticeable. I'm starting to get patches on my feet. They've even started wrapping around to the bottoms of my feet. I've never even had small spots on my feet. Now I get this horrible itching on the arches of my feet. All my psoriasis itches, but over the last 20 years I've pretty much gotten used to it. This is SO much worse. You'd think it wouldn't be, since the bottoms of your feet are less sensitive than other skin. Not the case. I really need to see my dermatologist. Too bad I can't afford it. plus, I think I may be starting to develop really bad psoriatic arthritis in my spine.

Which brings me to my next problem. The last two years or so I've been getting really bad pain in my back. And my knees have been getting worse. Like, if I stand for more than 5 minutes at a time, my knees lock and I can't bend them. And my back aches so bad that I have to sit down for at least 15-20 minutes before I can get up again. And it seems to be getting worse. My back is in pretty much constant pain. The only thing I can do is take lots of ibuprofin when it's unbearable. But I can't afford that. And I can't afford to go to the doctor to see what it is for sure and see what can be done about it.

Both of these problems are starting to worry me. unfortunately, worrying makes my psoriasis worse. It's a vicious cyle. lol I wish there was something I could do.

I went with dad to his 'other job' yesterday, just to get out of the house and, as is our practice when we're away from home, we talked about Uncle Sam. The man is driving me nuts.

I was about to go nutso there for a minute. I was trying to update and it kept automatically going to Rich Text and I was SO frustrated. Luckily I looked around and saw that it's set to use what you used last. I guess I should keep up on this kind of stuff before I get ready to throw the comp out the window, huh?

Anyway, a couple of quizzes for you.

And is it bad that I'm glad I didn't have to see/talk to my mom on Mother's day?

And why do people have messengers when they never sign into them? But then on the off chance you actually forget to sign into one/all of them when they're on they freak out? You know who you are. IF you even bother to read this. If not, well, point proven.

Okay, so I can't keep silent about it anymore. That was a bunch of CRAP! I'm sorry, but no. It was totally uncalled for! Could have been taken care of NICELY at least. Though I AM glad I'm not the only one that's a little peeved about the situation/"solution". And I'm glad that at least one of the involved isn't letting it get to her. Sorry, but I anger easily and stay that way. I probably will only be seen in that place sporatically for a while. You'll know where if you go there. And no, there's not really anything any of you can do. Nothing to worry yourselves about. *sigh* Okay, end of rant.

And because of that, here's a couple quizzes to take your mind off it.

I am such a KLUTZ!  So, last night I was slicing up some potatoes to make me some French Fries.  And stupid me wasn't paying attention and cut my thumb.  Now, I don't mean, like close to a paper cut size cut.  I mean, I cut INTO my thumb.  Like, If I had cut about 1/4" more, I'd be missing a peice of my thumb.  Bled through two paper towels before I remembered that we had some gauze and tape hiding in the living room.  My thumb's still kinda tingly/numb and hurts a bit.

And I wanted to rant about something that I forgot the other day that's been bothering me lately.  So I'll do that now.

Rant )

Guess that's it for now.

OH! and {{BIG SQUEEZING HUGS}} to [ profile] lotrjunkie009 for the 1776 icons!  They are SO COOL!!  That SO made my day!  *still running around the room jumping up and down excitedly*

Okay, it's not like I have any money or anything, but has anyone noticed that there is a real lack of Argentinian Futbol Merchendise readily available for us here in the U.S.  Let alone, way up here in Ohio?  Now, if I go to the Boca Juniors site, they have a store, so at least I could get some merch. from my MOST FAVORITEST Argentinian team.  But I can't find anything but a few shirts for San Lorenzo out there.  Just a couple shirts!  What if I wanted a pin, or a necklace, or some socks?  And there seems to be even less for Racing Club.  What, then I have to go to Argentina?  That sucks!  At the Boca store, I can get everything from shirts, to bathmats, to mate cups, to WINE!  WTF?  I want some stuff for my other teams, too.

And speaking of San Lorenzo... I don't even know what Viggo was talking about when Dave asked him about them, about how they were doing, and his response was "I like the New York Mets too", or whatever it was he said.  I was looking at the places for this year and it looks to me like San Lorenzo is pretty far up on the list so far.  They're even just above Boca!  And he's being a big freaking baby whining about how bad they are!  Whatever.

Okay, so my plan for my eventual meeting with Viggo (HA! In my DREAMS!) has changed.  Now, I want to get some Boca merch. (shirt, cap, pen, etc.) and have it on me, visible of course, so when we meet, he'll notice it and then we'll get launched into a discussion about Futbol.  Whad'ya think?  Think it would work?  Nah.  Me neither.  But it's worth a try, right?  *hopeful (read: desperate!) look*

Well, first off: I'm sorry to anyone who worried where I had gone.  Will explain that later on in the post.

Secondly, I have so much to say since last Thursday, I'm compartmentalizing and doing this update in several updates.  Does that make sense?

Okay, on with the ranting...

Long, rambling rants... )

I guess that's enough rants for now.  Will recap my stay with Corie and the boys next.

domino43: (Default)

First off, when one of them (Neal.  He's the BAD one.  The gun incident...) came home he ate a Honey Bun and decided that MY FACE was the perfect place to put the wrapper.  He's such a CHILD!  Whatever.  Not a big deal, but annoying anyway.

Then one of them (Paul{y}), I asked him if he'd keep my photobucket accts upgraded for me since I STILL haven't found a job.  I borrowed a phone from someone and called him and the phone went dead a couple times before I got the question out.  Then I got it all out and it cut out.  So I called back to get his answer.  HE F*CKING IGNORED ME WHEN I CALLED BACK!  WTF?  Like $18 is gonna kill him?  He knows that as soon as I get the money I'll get it to him.  I'v paid him back money that he FORGOT he had loaned me before.  So what's his problem now?  I mean, COME ON!  $18!!  It's not like I'm asking for $1800!

At least ONE of them (Clayton {Iggy}) was nice to me.  (WHAT?  And he's even the one that's usually a little annoying at least.)  He snapped a couple pics I've been needing for me.  And then he let me watch Bourne Supremecy.  I have only ONE word to describe Kirill... GUH! Talk about THUD-worthy!  And Karl speaking Russian.  YUMMY!  Unfortunately I don't think I'll be watching it again anytime soon, since I HATE Matt Damon with a PASSION!  Almost as much as I hate Tom Cruise.  And if you know me AT ALL, you know that's pretty bad...

Then, Neal and his friend decided to watch movies in the living room (read:I sleep on the couch) while I was upstairs in Clayton's room watching BS (hehe).  Well, they fell asleep, so I've been up ALL NIGHT, 'caus I've had no place to go to sleep.  So it's either sleep all day, or DON'T sleep at all today.  What to do...

Speaking of Kirill...I'm serious, Anita.  We need to write that Kirill movie.  And since we'll be the screen-writers, we'll HAVE to be there for the *CRUCIAL* scenes.  **wink, wink** *g*.

And, yes, Anita, I'm working on Chapter 2 right now.

Okay, I just noticed something.  Lately, like the last few months, I've been capitalizing whole words a LOT.  I have BOLD and ITALIC buttons right in front of me, but I go through the trouble of capitalizing.  I think I spend too much time chatting with Anita.

ETA: Oh, yeah! But at least I finally got around to making my new siggie!

Why does all the bad stuff always have to happen at once?  The last couple days have freakin' SUCKED!

First off, it was REALLY warm out the last couple days, so all the snow melted and has been causing a LOT of flooding in the area.  Well, near the rivers.  Luckily we're about 10 miles from the nearest part of the nearest river.  But our yard is still soup and the basement is flooded.  Good thing we don't ever go down there.  But, on the bright side, the well is actually full for a change.  So, at least the water doesn't smell as bad as it usually does.

Night before last I was cooking and I saw a mouse.  **shivers**  Now, anyone that's ever lived in an old farmhouse knows that you get mice from time to time, but this thing was, like, RIGHT THERE.  And I HATE mice.  ICK!  Took me a few hours to be able to even walk through the kitchen.  Now I'm going in there and warming things in the microwave, but I'm very wary.  And I;m going to make sure that I stay away from the cooking area for a couple hours around the time I saw him.  Aperently he likes to peek at my dad when he cooks.  So, no cooking or anything at that time of night.

So, anyway, my fever finally broke that night.  Woke up feeling alright.  So that was good.

And that night, it was VERY windy and it knocked the internet out.  Was out all that night, yesterday, last night and earlier today.  Finally came back on about 11am.

But then last night, I was arguing with my brother.  Well, more discussing... having a heated debate.  That sounds about right, yeah, heated debate.  Anyway, so we're 'debating' and I said something about his best friend having lived in the house for a couple months over this past summer.  And I said, playfully, like we always pick on him about this guy and him always being together, "What, you had to have your boyfriend close by?"  You know what the f*cker did??  He picked up the shotgun that he had been looking at earlier, walked over to me and swung it like he was playing major league baseball and my leg was the ball!  He hit me right where the leg bone connects to the knee...  OMG!  I thought he broke my leg!  He broke the stock off the gun.  I called my dad in to look at my leg, he didn't think it was broken.  But when he found out the gun was broken, he was not pleased.  Aperently they stopped making that particular gun in 1962-63.  Then my brother was all, like, "I can make a stock for it that looks just like that," except that he doesn't do wood-work, and "I'm sure you can buy a new one", but we know that he won't.  Anyway, he got ready and left pretty quickly after that.  If I had had a way to the hospital, I would have gone in, just to make sure there was nothing too wrong with my leg.  But I didn't, and I can walk on it, though it hurts like h*ll to do so.  And my whole leg is a little swollen and there's a MONSTER bruise forming where I got hit.

So, you see what I mean when I say the last couple days have SUCKED??  I need some cheering up...

Okay, I was feeling all creative yesterday and I was actually going to work on my Karl story that I started a little while ago.  Since I've been using someone else's computer, I'll type stuff up in my e-mail and send it to myself.  Had the begining all done and perfect.  Then I went to retrieve it yesterday morning and I found that I had absentmidedly erased it.  A little annoying, but I had it mostly written out on paper, so I was fine.  ThenI spent all day looking for the notebook it's in.  And I CAN'T FIND IT ANYWHERE!  I want to scream!  I hope no one threw it away while they were cleaning, or HEADS WILL ROLL!  And that was the notebook that had TONS of space in it.  GRRR!!

Arthritis is acting up in ALL my joints, but especially my knees/feet, so it hurts to walk.  And to top it all off, I've had a fever, however slight it is, for three days now and it still hasn't broken.  I've taken aspirin, actually got a lot of sleep last night, NOTHING!  I HATE being sick.

But I did find out today that a company in a near-by town is hiring for a secretary, so I think I need to re-do my resume and send it to them ASAP.  Only part time, but it's still money.

Hopefully I'll find my notebook so I can get that story underway.  And I hope this fever breaks soon.  I feel like crap!

How about some lovelies to make me feel better?


Orlando looking his usual lovely self... )
