Ya...OK hoping to be back on track...

Since the middle of June at work it has snowballed to complete hell...meaning being overwhelmed and getting fiercely behind which has caused severe stress, anxiety, no sleep, over eating, over drinking, blah blah blah!!  3 weeks ago I fell and broke my elbow.  I really feel that this has given me a chance to get caught up, as sick as that sounds.  My boss has covered my court and as of today I am completely caught up.  I cannot tell you how good this feels.  So I will start fresh tomorrow and I will STAY ON TOP OF THINGS !!  Right ? Uuum Yeah !

My poor mother is being threatened with her job.  Because she is not able to work certain hours and certain shifts so she could take care of my step-dad so they told her "you do what you have to do" and "we'll do what we have to do".  She is hysterical !!!  I don't know what to do or say to console her.  They can hardly afford to live where they live let alone anything else and with my step dad's brain injury he is unable to console her the way he normally would have and I know she terribly misses that !!  My fear is that I am going to be pushed to get a place with them...which is my worst fear !!

DD is still not talking with her grandmother and that is adding to all the has now become my refuge ... pretty sad !!

Out of hair dye....take cover !!

After a long week at work of trying to hold up my end and maintaining my major hormonal ups and downs and the pain of my elbow (see previous post) I finally got to go out with my dear girlfriend and her family to a movie to see "The Help".  I was so damn excited that I left work, ran errands...I did not even go home to change out of my work clothes, I just met them at the theater.  Aaahhh...finally sat in my seat and enjoyed a wonderful, awesome movie !!! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT !!  In a great mood with the remnants of the movie still in my head as I reach for my cell phone and noticed 8 missed calls with 7 messages all from my DD.  Knowing that anything over one call and one voice mail is complete trouble, I listened to the messages only to find out I am a terrible mother who lost the ability to read minds and naturally just know what my DD needs.  HAIR DYE....yep.  The crying, hysterical messages were all about needing hair dye and needing it now.  I called back thinking I might be able to fix this catastrophe only making it worse because I just "don't listen".  Well that wonderful feeling that movie left me with was gone before I sat my ass in the truck and cried all the way to Walmart to buy fucking hair dye so the rest of my evening might not include my death !!!!!  Next time the evening out will include alcohol !!!

Storm clouds...

Something so magical about this one !!

More yummy rub love...

Just had to share !!

Face Plant... a hurry to leave and pick up my DD who's car is broken down and in the shop and get her to work on time when I stepped off the last step and did a beautiful face plant right right in the main foyer and in front of 3 security officers.  Small rug burn on the forehead and cheek, skirt slightly hiked up and my pride completely shattered.  I tried to push myself up with my right arm and realized that it hurt too bad to do that but doing it anyways because I was too embarrassed to do otherwise.  After hoisting myself up and dusting myself off and fixing my blouse to make sure that things weren't hanging out that should not be hanging out, I sheepishly left the building and quickly got into my truck before calling my daughter to cry and laugh at myself hysterically.

Next day when I could not pull my own pants up I knew something was wrong so I went to the ER to be told that I chipped a bone and cracked another one in my elbow.

It has been 4 days and believe it or not it is starting to feel better. No cast, no brace.  I was just instructed to not use it, but move it !!

Note to self:  pick up the feet !!
