I suck at this ‘blog’ thing…

It’s not that I haven’t thought about writing, because I have.  I just haven’t done it. Clearly. It’s been since the first of the year that I’ve written anything. Good job! Slacker of the year award goes to Me. There has been so much that’s gone on this year, so it’s not for lack of things to write about.  I think I have a complex when it comes to blogging. Sister K is the writer, Sister L is a good writer too. My Texas  cousin has a phenominal blog. Maybe I should just get over it and write.  We’ll see how it goes.  (that’s my excited, yay I’m going to do this voice!)

July.

6 days into July and so far it’s going alright. It’s our year end at work, so I imagine it might be a tad stressful, but I’m not going to let it get me. Ha! Nanny, nanny, boo, boo, you can’t catch me. (that’s my taunt to stress.) The 4th was a good time. I went to my friend SH house, or rather her parents for a cookout/fireworks. They live alll theee waaaay out in Choctaw or the outskirts somewhere out there. It was a nice drive but I couldn’t imagine making it with ice/snow on the roads. Too many big hills for my non-adventure self. I told her those hills were the closest I’d ever get to riding a roller coaster. Her parents place is nice. I mean nice. 5 acres of land, cute house, only a couple of neighbors, a little slice of heaven. Her mom made enough food for a few neighborhoods and all of it was DELISH! I did feel a little awkward only because I didn’t know anyone, but I still had a good time. Everyone was very nice. The fireworks were fun, even in the rain. Yeah it rained! We certainly needed it. So the 4th was good.

Tomorrow Sister K is having ear surgery. She’s virtually deaf in her left ear, something about an extra bone on her hammer that is making it not work right. So they are going to go in there and remove the little bone so she can hear again. It’s been so long since she has been able to hear, I wonder if it’s going to be sensory overload for her? I really hope I can get off work to be there at the hospital during her surgery. I know my mom will be there, but I wanna be there too. I’m definitely saying my prayers that the doctors are successful and have steady hands. *(God, please watch over them and keep them in your capable hands.)* If anyone besides me reads this, say a prayer for K too. I’m a little nervous for her, but I know she’ll be alright. I know it.

It’s been a while….

since I’ve written anything here. Sometimes I think it’s because I don’t have much to say, but probably it’s more of a “where do I start?” The past month has been interesting. My baby sister moves away without telling anyone, gas continues to rise closer to 4 bucks, groceries (even the cheap brands) are going the same way as gas, my car wants to leak antifreeze like there’s no tomorrow, and I ended up moving out of my apartment and in with my Nana. I thought at 34 you’re supposed to be doing alright and able to take care of yourself? But for this 34 yr old, that isn’t the case. I’m trying to keep on the positive side and realize this is the best thing for both of us. She’s in her 80’s and has lived alone for the past two year since my Papa died. Her house is on a nice street, but not in the best neighborhood. My monthly expenses were more than my monthly income, so the best case scenario – move in with Nana, so I can try and get back on track and she can have someone there to watch out for things. She’s still with it and all that, she just gets lonely. The only thing that isn’t 100% ideal is her yappy ass dog. Why is it everytime I walk in the door, the damn dog barks like it’s the first time he’s seen me? But if you threaten him with a “squirt” (from the water bottle) he calms down a touch. :o)

So I’m now at Nana’s and it hasn’t been bad. Granted I haven’t even been there a full week yet, or maybe today makes a week? Anywho…I’m there and thank the Lord. Because the move about did me in. I lived in an upstairs apartment and it was fucking murder moving this time. I pretty much did it all on my own – although my sweet nieces helped, and Sister K came over one afternoon. I had to borrow my brother’s expedition and while that was a saving grace, have I ever told you how much shit I own? It really should be criminal for one person to have that much stuff. And this time for the first time, I got rid of A LOT of stuff. Almost all of it was donated to the crackheads in the building. I think they were pretty appreciative. I was just thrilled to not have to pack one more piece of junk downstairs. Note to self – when I get my own place again, I DO NOT NEED another set of measuring spoons. Why when in the midst of packing did I come across 5 different sets?!?!? I kept three and gave the other two away. It makes me tired thinking of all the packing, etc.

On other news….my baby sister is still in Texas and while I thought she was going to come home soon, it’s not so. At least not right now. So she says. I wish she was coming home, because I’m worried about her, but I guess she has to figure it all out on her own. She is supposed to be here sometime this week for a visit. I hope that’s true. I really do miss her.

Good news – I’m getting a cell phone tomorrow. (thursday) I must be the only person over 30 and under 80 in America that hasn’t had a cell phone. While I’ve managed to get by without having one, moving in with Nana has made me see the light. Especially since you don’t dare call her house after 10p.m. and I need one so the Red Cross can locate me. I’ve missed several chances to go to fires because they haven’t been able to track me down. :o(

OH and even better news!!!! My Alabama sister came home for a really quick July 4th visit. It was a super short trip, but really fantastic to see her. She has this really cute, short haircut (that looks great on her!) and she seems to be really happy. I’m thrilled for her! Hopefully next time she comes it can be for a longer amount of time. OR maybe I can save my pennies and take a trip there. :o)

Okay – there’s my month in a nutshell…I’m sure something else has happened, but right now I can’t think of it. And I need to get back to work. LOL….Hope you have a great rest of the week.

Why?

after 34 years do I still get my feelings hurt when I’m dissed by a sister? Why did I just use the word diss? :o) Seriously though…they, K&L just have a way of making me feel like shit. Like I’m not important. Typical phone call is:
Me “blah, lallala” Them “Oh yeah, lalallalala…Hey let me call you back.” Which never, ever happens. I guess I just need to toughen up and not let it get me down. But you’d think after all this time it wouldn’t bother me. But it does.

“Let me call you back.” Yeah right.
