No Such Luck

Well, I got turned down for State School Research Center this morning, which doesn’t really surprise me, but it is still a little painful to acknowledge. I do have an interview on Friday, though, with a marketing company. It’s a permanent gig, and within my price range/compensation range, so we’ll see. Sometimes I hate being bipolar… I’m getting inordinately upset about that job, and I already had it in my

Party Completed

I’m still in a way recovering from the weekend. Elizabeth’s Birthday went well, even though the majority of the kids that we invited from her school didn’t make it. She took it in stride, though, saying to me that she was kind-of sad that they didn’t come, but it was their loss because they didn’t get any cake. This morning she got to wear some of her new clothes, her

Avoiding the Issue

I’ve been very Nano-centric lately, I think more than anything to keep my mind off of the fact that I’ve invited absolute strangers with their children over to my house tomorrow. Strangers. In My House. With Children. Yeah, can you tell that my agoraphobia has kicked into high gear by inviting these people to my “safe place”. Silly? Yes. Debilitating? I’m trying real hard for it not to be. I’m

If Wishes Were Horses

Working at a college makes me jones just a little more to go back to school. Maybe it’s getting confused for a student occasionally, or just overhearing some of the classes that are going on around me on my floor that does it. I do want to go back to school so badly, but I’m having problems paying my bills already (including the student loans from my BFA), I don’t

Feeling Kinda Random

Yeah for a positive amount in the bank account. I got paid last night, so that means that I can actually go out and buy things for my child’s birthday this weekend. Not a lot, though, as the car payment still must be paid. Will someone come over and finish cleaning my house for me, please? Because I just don’t have the energy. Flash is kicking my ass at work

Ideas, People… Ideas

I need ideas, people. I’ve been trying to find cheap or free activities to have the kids that are coming to Elizabeth’s birthday party do. I’m lost, and I’m broke…. any ideas?


I’m feeling better, other than the regular old sinus crap. Which is probably a good thing, since it’s taking everything in my power to stay conscious today at work. If you take a look to you right, over on the sidebar you’ll see a new button with the great Yoda on it. What the hell is NaBloPoMo, you ask? Well, the Absolutely Fabulous Mrs. Kennedy over at Fussy came up
