So, there you are..   Leave a comment

It’s been since the beginning of the month.. hell, the beginning of the year, that I last wrote in my own blog.  I’m terrible at keeping up with this thing, but I thought it was time I posted some kind of update.  So.. where to begin.  I guess, where I left off.. New Years..

My diabetes is still pretty much out of control.  Well, I can thank the constant eating of duncan hines or betty crocker cakes that my daughter asked me to buy so she could bake, and I could then make meals out of.  I do love me some cake.  Hello, who doesn’t like cake??  And that bike that dear hubby brought home for me, I’ve been on about 5x in all.  I want to, but damn I’m tired when we get home from work.  3 hours in a tin can truck, 5 days a week, on top of an 8.5 hour day at work, and up 2 hours before we have to leave for work.  I just want to collapse when I get home.  I don’t even want dinner.  I don’t even like my family when I get home, asking me “what’s for dinner?”.. most nights I’d like to tell them where they can take their hunger and stuff it, I’m tired.  So, some nights, I’ll cook something quick & ez (unhealthy), or make something that is cooked from refrigerated or frozen (even easier and probably even more unhealthy), or order out.  Yea, as you can see, all bad choices.  I feel like we can all say, stick a fork in her, she’s done.  Overall, I’m not really as unhappy as I sound right now, it’s just.. it is what it is.  I’m glad I at least like my job and it doesn’t make me dread the next day coming.  Been there, done that.. please, never again.  Otherwise, the 3 hours of torture in travel everyday, would be more than enough to tip the scales for me into saying the hell with making money and paying the bills, and putting food on the table.

How about something that makes us all happier!?  Fur babies!  As in, we are getting a new kitty, very very soon!  Her name is Lacy, and she is super adorable.

Lacy

You know it, I'm cute!

See what I mean?  CUTENESS.  Fluffy puffy furball of joy.  She is just about ready to leave mom & siblings, and we will have her next week!  I just hope the other fur babies take to her fairly quick.  When we brought in the last 2, Peaches & Ginger, the older female here, kinda took to mothering them.  I’m hoping this ends similarly, and they all get along as well.

Then, just when you think everything is going right and moving forward.. your tv dies.  Your awesome 55″ projection monster of a tv.  It was sudden.. no warning.. just dead.  We ended up going to one of those rent to own places on Friday night, after work, to “check out what they had” and by Saturday morning, we had in our possession, a new 60″ hdtv.  Guess what?  Our cable, gets hdtv channels.. but our cable box, doesn’t have the right connectors to get the hdtv signal.  See Steve turn red in frustration as he fights with it, only to realize, we NEED a new cable box.  And our cable office is never open on Saturdays.  And as he told the “person” on the comcast website.. “we work for a living.. send us a new box, we can’t sit at home to wait for someone, or get to the office during their business hours of 9-5, when we don’t get home until 6 or later.”  So, they are UPS’ing a new cable box to us.. I have no idea when it will get here.  And you know the great thing about getting a new tv?  You find out a lot of your other shit, is old.  As in, it’s becoming increasingly difficult to add our components to the tv (things like, vcr, dvd, & home theatre).  It may be time to update our home theatre system soon.. AFTER some other stuff is paid off.. like the new tv of awesomeness.

We're working on the setup of things still.

And because we love our fur babies so much, we got them some new furniture a couple weeks ago..

They love it, and have repeatedly torn the feather toys off of it in a frenzy, much like a shark after a tasty treat.  Fortunately, the toys are replaceable.  Someone was thinking ahead when they made these towers!

So, summing up, life is same ol’ same ol’, kitties are teh awesomeness, and technology is a pain in the rear.  My weekend is over half over, and laundry isn’t gonna do itself.  Damn.  LATERS!
