Sigh………..Finally….I’m home and have two hours of free time. How do those of you with kids find time to blog? I’m being serious. How do you do it all? In my eyes, if you’re a parent, work, do the laundry, cook dinner, take care of the kids, go to the grocery store, and blog, you’re a super hero in my eyes. Give yourself a huge pat on the back. Bravo! Yes, please….take a bow. You deserve it.
I’ve had a lot going on the last couple of weeks. Last weekend I went to visit my Tennessee girlfriends and had a fantastic time catching up, shopping, pedicures, cocktails, music, etc. We had a slumber party sort of. There were four of us in our jammies piled up in a king size bed talking girl talk, watching movies and gossiping. It was so much fun. I miss them already.
This week at work has been hectic. I’m afraid our newest member of the team is falling short on his responsibilities. I’d love to say he’s just new and a bit slow but nope, he’s just fucking lazy. The management doesn’t seem to notice it or want to do anything about it. This kid was in the air force too. The other day I told him I didn’t believe him and he proved it to me with showing me his military ID. There it was…proof. He worked on planes too. Yikes. Anyway, he has set us back a bit. He’s been there almost five months. He should be up to speed by now but continues to take anywhere from six to eight smoke breaks a day and puts things off. Even hides work and tells me he’s done it. Shaking my head. I’ll have to come up with a resolution to fix this issue since management won’t. I’ll be scheming up something.
On Friday my Mom arrived for a visit with us. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed her being here. I never get alone time with her so it was really nice to shop and have lunch with her. She left this morning or I should say this afternoon. She stays up until 2 am and then sleeps until 10 or 11 am. I don’t see how she does it. I go to bed at 9 pm and get up at 5 am. It’s just my nature. Due to having that schedule during the week for work it sticks with me on the weekends.
I have a God daughter that I adore and love more than life itself. I don’t believe I’ve blogged about her before. She’s such a beautiful, carefree, loving, exquisite soul. I love her unconditionally and always will. She lives a few states away so I don’t get to see her as often as I’d like. She’s 19 years old and has always looked like an angel to me. She has milky white porcelain skin, just a few freckles, big beautiful doe like eyes with the longest eyelashes I’ve ever seen. Her long auburn hair lands at her hips and she is an old soul to say. She has an eclectic type of personality. She loves everyone and I swear in a past life she was a hippie from the sixties. She came out to me a couple of years ago when she came for a visit. She told me she was in love and her girlfriend meant everything to her. Just last week they broke up and now my beautiful God daughter has cut her hair off and completely stopped wearing make up. Not that she needed any at all but she looks more like a boy to me now and no longer that sweet beautiful girl I’ve always known. I support 100% on being gay and whatever you wants to be in life. It’s going to take some time for me to get used to her looking completely different now. It all happened so fast with her now looking more like Justin Bieber than a beautiful girly girl. Any advise or suggestions for me are welcome to get used to it. My love hasn’t changed for her at all. I’m just trying to understand the whole change the look thing. I don’t want to ask her why she cut her long beautiful hair off and why she isn’t dressing girly anymore. It’s kind of obvious in her pictures that she’s transitioning into a more masculine look that will make her happy. And that is what I want, her to be happy.
Anyway, now things will soon be back to normal with my schedule in blogging and I don’t have anymore trips planned until September. I’m looking forward to diving into some good stuff to post and catching up with all of you loves.
So, I’m thrilled to say that I’m celebrating my one year anniversary here on WP. I’m so shocked I’ve stuck with this blogging thing. Normally I don’t stick with hobbies. I’ll find an interest in something and within a couple of months I lose interest. If you’ve followed me for some time you know I have a few commitment issues so I’m ecstatic to say that I’ve done this for a year and I absolutely love it. I love all of you. You’ve encouraged me, inspired me, lifted me and I’ve found so many new friendships here. I’ve learned so much from you as well. I love that some of you write poetry, stories, funny things, serious heartwarming moments, share your recipes or what’s new in your lives. I enjoy seeing your photo’s and experiencing where you’re from and the many different cultures. You’re all teaching me so much. Thank you for following me, commenting and sharing so much of yourselves with me. I’m so happy to call all of you my friends. I’m a lucky girl that’s for sure. I’m now up to 300 followers and I’m totally blown away by that. If you would’ve told me a year ago I’d have 300 people following and reading my blog I would’ve laughed hysterically. Thank you for making me feel special and for being here.
Now, Happy 4th Of July to all of you whether you’re in America or across the pond or on the opposite end of the world enjoy your Sunday and I appreciate each of you so much!
