Well, I've just realized that the last time I updated this is when I found out I was pregnant with my son. LAZY ME!

Anyhow we are all fine, he is growing and a goofball. I of course had to have a "medically complex" child.... which is just a fancy way of saying he digests food slow and has bad acid reflux so we have to give him prevacid and slather everything he eats in BUTTER or some other high cal junk....

Not how I expected to feed my child but he needs calories desperately. So we roll with it.

So now we are working on getting me to become a part-time working mom rather then full time. So I am looking into all sorts of survey sites and what not. I figure if I can supplement my income that way we might make it. Even 20 bucks a week is okay. I am also trying to get an Etsy site for my jewelry running for extra cash. I haven't been working on that one as much as I should.... been distracted by projects.... painting the livingroom, refinishing the kitchen cabinets, refinishing a couple pieces of furniture.... and then future projects, halloween costume for my boy (the joker), carpeting the livingroom, reupholtering the ratty but very comfortable couches, painting the kitchen. busy busy busy.

Anyhow thats really all I have for now....

and in light of trying survey sites to make cash forgive this shameless plug:

So let me get this straight - Larry King is getting his 8th divorce, Elizabeth Taylor is possibly getting married for a 9th time, Britney Spears had a 55 hour marriage. Jesse James and Tiger Woods are screwing EVERYTHING, yet the idea of same-sex marriage is going to destroy the institution of marriage?? Really? REALLY?? Repost to your page if you agree.

So my grandmother had this plant I remember from when I was a kid. It had pretty star shaped flowers they would drip nectar that I would lick off my fingers. I loved that plant but she never remembered the name. She never gave me a cutting or anything cause I was about 6.... and then when I was old enough the plant had died.

So I was visiting a friend's house last year and she had that plant and knew the name. I was SOOOOOO happy. She had said she'd get me a cutting but between normal forgetfullness, moving school, new job and what not I never got one.

I started searching all the greenhouses near me and half the time people looked at me like I was nuts. I would search the greenhouse at work every week for this plant too. Its the first plant that caught my imagination, or intrest. There have been soo many since. I get excited over new plants too the point where I'll be happy for days if I get one.

I was giving up hope and was going to order one online. However I was out trolling the local greenhouses seeing what was out and champing at the bit to work on my garden when I randomly asked the shop guy if they had any hoya, they did and I snatched it up without a second thought, and propmtly took it home repotted it and much plant happiness insued....untill I found out they don't bloom until root-bound, I already knew they liked to be neglegted and left in a sunny room. What kind of plant wants to be root-bound? Honestly its counter intuitive, forget about the plant, dont water it often don't fertilize it dont repot it and its happy. WHY WAS THIS PLANT SO HARD TO FIND?!?!?!?!?! Its the perfect plant for people who can't take care of plants.

Oh and then not a week passes and I'm out in the green house looking at some bamboo, cause well I want some and there is another hoya.....two in a week after TWO YEARS of looking. So I bought the one at work too cause well if one is good two are better..... I'm such a plant geek.

A list of my current leafy friends.... 1 poinsetta, 1 jade plant, 1 purple passion plant, 1 christmas cactus, 1 tea rose, 2 hoya, 2 peonys, my seedlings for my garden. Outside I have, mulberry, 5 roses, 1 wenglia, yarrow, carnations, blueberries, primrose, iris, daffofills, tulips, clematis, Dahlias....which are indoors atm, forsythia, hydrangea, rhododendreons, lilac, daisies, black-eyed susans, violets and a few others.

Yes I need to start my landscaping degree so I can just play with plants all ay long.

cell phones. People forgot all common curtesy when these puppies became big. You can see three people sitting at a table at a dinner all talking on their cell....whats the point eat alone. People check out at the store while on their phone and the cashier has to ask some questions like how are you paying today multiple times and then be told they're being rude. One time At the bank a lady was checking her voicemail on speakerphone mode while waiting in line.

Don't whip out you new boobies to show me at work, especially when I don't know your name. I didn't ask to see them all I said was "I like your nail polish" literally. Nail polish to boob show and tell tends to short circut my brain.

There are days when I really wish I could take my neice and nephew to live with me. My brother and his wife have huge moments of being really crappy parents.

For about the last year my neice has been messing up. Shes 13 and is depressed has experimented with drugs and cutting herself. I've been trying to figure out why and making myself available for her to talk to about anything and whenever. The change from her normal self happened within a couple months and I kept trying to talk myself into beliving it was "normal" teenage shit while knowing it wasn't.

I think today I found out why. My neice was over to hang out and talk like we tend to do. She randomly started talking about when her mom tried to kill herself about 8 months ago... roughly a month before Bear(my neice) started acting up. She was telling me how she found her mom out cold, bleeding wrists and all, in the bathroom and had to call 911. She talked about it like I knew her mom had tried to kill herself. I had been told Jeri had had an allergic reaction to some meds. I admit I am gullible and didn't ask more.

They act like its Shana's fault she is acting up and yell at her constantly. I do mean constantly. However you cannot tell me that a 12 year old child finding her mom like that isn't traumatizing and wouldn't have this affect. I feel so awful for her. I wish I knew what I could do to help her other then doing what I'm doing. I promised her that if she told me something I would not run to her parents with it, with the exceptions of drugs, talking about suicide or if she was preggers. I know if I confront her parents with it she will see it as me not keeping that promise.

I really really want to go yell at them, and beat some sense into their heads.

I have a few... I worked at a Panera Bread a while ago. Panera has well...bread, sandwiches, salads and soups. Deli fare. I was yelled at because we didn't have ravioli..... the guy ranted for ten minutes.

Or the lady who called because her order was wrong and after listening to her rant I started to say "Okay heres what I can do for you." but only got out okay befor the lady jumped down my throught yelling "I spent fifty fucking bucks at your place to get it wrong and all you can say is okay?" I promptly told her that I was going to do something for her until she bit my head off, but now she could just have a nice day and hung up... and then told my boss the whole situation.

On the more comical side at a different venue where we sell artifical trees customer comes to the register with one and asks if it will die before christmas, because it has to last to christmas.

Thank you America for deciding on Obama. I am so frigin' happy right now!

Unfortuately theres still tons of hate, people yelling muslim as if it ment the same thing as witch did 200 years ago. Yelling Socalist as if it ment a bad thing.... it seems to work for the French.

I was so scared that McCain would win treating us to another for years of Bush. I was even more fearful that he would win and die leaving that cold-hearted bitch in control.

Today is a happy day for America.
