Are We There Yet?

This is one crazy journey.

Okay so yeah I ended up working on psych. It was fine, mindnumbingly quiet, but fine. But you know it was just the cherry on top of my shitty ass day.

Thank the good Lord it’s “Bitchfest” tomorrow at Starbucks. 🙂

 

Bad day already March 30, 2006

Shitty day already and I haven’t even been up an hour. I am exhausted, got woken up by the phone. It was my husband and we had a stupid fight. Things are worked out, I think, but I’m still feeling like crap about it. We have no groceries and I have no idea what I am going to have for lunch or take with me to eat at work for supper. So even better, I get this phone call from the staffing office at work saying that psych (where I once worked) is super short and the unit that is my home unit has some extras and so I might have to go work on psych tonight. Fuck…jeez I knew I shouldn’t have answered the phone.

 

The Truck Rocks, etc.

So, the truck rocks. Love it! Now I want a new vehicle….wahhhhhh!!

We picked up the wedding pictures we had professionally framed. They turned out beautiful. Oh I love them and can’t wait to hang them. The framer did such a good job and I’m so glad we got them done, even if it did cost us a two arms and a leg. 😉

Well I just got home from work – it was painfully slow. I’m not complaining because it’s been so busy lately, but it was really slow.

I just stuffed myself with a Wendy’s Mandrin Chicken Salad – yum and am just waiting for the forums to open back up again after the nightly maintenance.

 

New Truck Tuesday March 28, 2006

Today’s the day…

 

Are we there yet? March 24, 2006

Anyways my husband’s car needs some major repairs that will cost $2000 – yikes!! So we’ve decided that it isn’t worth it to fix the car and so we have decided to sell it and buy a new one.

He calls me this afternoon from the Toyota dealership…lol. He’s out test driving a Tacoma and the dealership is looking over his car to see how much they will give him on a trade in. So they’ll give him $4000 for his car, which is great since we was going to ask $4500 if he sold it himself.

So he comes over with this truck. It’s very nice, very tempting, all shiny and new – and fact of the matter is we do need it. I know we need it, but why is it so scary? Why am I freaking out?! We will be able to make the payments – no doubt of that. We need it – no doubt of that. Why?? This isn’t our first major purchase. We own our own home and bring home relatively decent pay cheques and we live a comfortable life. We aren’t rich but we don’t want for anything either. That’s why I’m struggling with my feelings of fear.

Why? For the first time we had to consider if a car seat would fit in the back for our future children. BTW – no we aren’t pregnant and won’t be for a year and a half.
Maybe it’s that this truck is just the starting point for the rest of our lives…

 

Straight to Hell

I just got off work and I’m sure I’m going straight to hell for telling a lie to an old confused lady. But seriously I was going to admit myself to the psych ward if I had to listen to her asking where the train her husband was on was one more time. Yep, straight to hell.

 

My cousin… March 15, 2006

Will explain more later, but my cousin Brandon will be taken off life support in the next couple of days. The cancer has scarred his lungs beyond repair…
