wow...what a week! (ok, maybe month) believe it or not...i have not even been able to sit down here at the computer!!

work is still much hidden stuff...we're relatively sure, wal-mart has placed a bounty on all the heads of long term associates....i.e., if, as a member of management, you can get an 'old-timer' to quit,or fire them... then your year end bonus is gonna be a few grand heavier!

sux to work like that...i love the company, at least the company i started working for...and now i have to watch my back, closely, as they are watching every move i make. and they are digging for NOTHING.... They've tried to fire one...who fought her way back....sent one home for 3 days, on bullshit charges...and surprisingly enough...she came back (i thought she would lose her temper, and quit...and im sure they thought the same thing) and they just shamed another into just quitting....after she committed the UNGODLY walmart sin, of having angina ON THE CLOCK!! man, when i got that report back from the cardiologist...i would be walking it right over to the best attny in the states....i would NEVER just give in like that....NEVER

i would hope, they would just ask us to leave if they were done with us....shit, it's not like we work in bentonville, and are gonna file for, and receive a 6 million dollar severance, like EMBEZZLERS DO!! "reward the assholes, and crap on the foot soldiers"...seems to be the new walmart phrase now.

just don't ruin our names, and destroy our psychia by this mind hosing!! They have no idea....this is not just our livelihood....this is our life work and committment (we committed to sam)....and by trying to destroy it...they are treading on human cruelty!

i hope they mounted ole sam, on a skewer in his he's doing alot more than turning over, in his grave.
my supervisor, but more appropriately, my bestest bud at work, lost her son last saturday, under 'inconclusive' circumstances....which almost makes it worse, if there can be a worse...

he was found at an apt/home he'd rented, with a 'less than savory' family...with a gunshot wound to the head. How that happened is still a little up in the air...we're all leaning toward suicide, but there was something at the scene that puzzled he was sent to Little Rock, for a closer sure it will be weeks, before a conclusion is found.

we had a memorial service yesterday, and hopefully, this family of a loving mom (whom had been estranged from her 21 year old son...under 'tough love' type circumstances)....and two little sisters....who adored their big brother, and whos young lives will now be altered by this event.

ive been so worried about them...and between the stress of that situation, and the extra load at EXHAUSTED!! one more day of work, today....and then off for two glorious days...YEA. It has been too her and i have shared the problems of having over-testesteroned young men/sons...we compare our problems with them daily, and ache over them scares me to think that this could ever be a possiblitly, for a child to choose.....and our lives too are now can i gripe about gabe to her now???

and instead of keeping that boot in gabe's ass, all the time....maybe i need to spend some time apprceciating him more...he has so much potential....and maybe college isnt gonna be in his future....maybe i should just support him a little more....

if you pray...offer a few for this family.

my uncle in colo, died also this week, and i really wanted to be there for that, and for my dad...who i know was reeling over this one....but i think that wouldnt work out...cuz i needed to be here for and dad should be home by now...and getting back to some normalcy in thier must be so hard, to be at an age...where all of your buds, and now your siblings, start to just drop off...i cant imagine, and hope that there is a tougher exterior to my heart, by the time i get there!

the weather finally turned here in southern missouri....too wonderful and strange in our little part of the woods...we went from 93 degree days, and green a cool and colorful about 12 hours!

molly kate jumped right on to the band wagon, too!! after a relatively uneventful summer (health wise) her little lungs are now loaded with fluid....and occasionally she spikes a fever....we've taken steps to combat the fluids, and are waiting to see if this goes away, or blows up into pneumonia....tick tock...tick tock....tick tock....

little bill brought his woman home, to meet mama....and it was good that molly was off a few days, gave up her last dental appt, and that mama's time at the funeral,all fell right in the same week....

everyone got a little time together!

angela seems to be a nice girl....although too little frame wise...and bill seems very comfortable with her...

somewhere this last year...when i wasnt looking....he became a man.


one more day of work...still forcasting a warm weekend...well...until my first day off, on sunday.....then rain....BOO!! oh yea...BOO!! halloween is monday off...and have to find a game to play with molly's classmates!!

after all my elder kids are raised, im finally getting to enjoy being a room mom...and all that stuff i missed, while i was slaving my life away, for a company who is done with me, now!

good morning

finally getting back in here!! we've been so busy, enjoying the onset of fall. Got some fall bulbs purchased (but not in, yet) closing down the pool, finishing up innoculations, getting into the routine of a school year ...and you know, with us, that school, college, and kindergarten...heheheheh...and trying to get ready to lose this fabulous summmer...

we have one more day of warm, and then the cooler weather is rumored to start down...there are pumpkins and mums in the front yard, on a haybale, with a scarecrow stuck in it.....a jack-0-latern in the front window, and little ghosts in the trees....

im up early, enjoying don imus' bad mood, and wondering how he keeps all his friends...i notice not a word from bernie....they are all cowering...crazy at is seems...between him and jon stewart, i seem to be able to decipher all the news of the day, in a more sane way. That doesnt say a whole lotta good, about all the news of the day....

my uncle don is in salt lake, and was just put on a afraid he's lost his battle, and im sorry that my dad has to go through the loss of another sibling...our family has been so unscathed by any tragedy...and this year, with bury two of the remaining 7....this is my dad's YOUNGER im sure that makes it doubly hard on him...i hear him wanting to be there, but afraid to go and look death in the's so heartbreaking, and the mortality of parents and uncles, are leaving a lasting impression on me, also.....sometimes this 'circle of life' majorly!

ive always said...i really think, hell is here on earth...and heaven is when you get to stop it...kinda like when you stop banging yourself in the head with a ballpeen hammer....

my smoking is still happening...(even though ive enjoyed the wonderful benefits of trying to stop, like eating my co-workers alive, and gaining 25 pounds)

and after the wonderful day at walmart world i had yesterday..ill probably keep on puffing!...ugh. I cannot WAIT to retire from this job, and do something else...they are sucking the life right outta me!!

they cut our i agreed to pick molly up from school, and let the sarge run around with his bud, and do man things for the day (poor guy) and as i left the store, it was rumored that we were to have a visit from our regional!! i knew the rumor must be true, because all management was frothing at the mouth.

i noticed our fearless leader was again, unseeable....if you're there'll catch him touring, but you never see him again....i should have such a job

Im glad i got to slip away would not have surprised me, if they would have made me stay, and held it against me, if i refused so as not to leave my child stranded on the street....they don't seem to understand those responsibilities.....and i worry about their children.

anyway...ill start back on the nicotine patches tonight...if i can get them bought, which seems to be the only hold up so far...having the strength to stay ONE MORE SECOND in that store, longer than i need to!!

plus the fact, that i hate seeing ole beady eyes, in my former position.(i miss the work of the pharmacy, but am glad im outta that one) ...staring and making her little barbs

I stopped to see one of my FRIENDS in there the other day...and ole beady, just about fell OVER herself...getting to me, thinking i had a script to drop off (fat chance)...she was so embarrassed, that she couldnt pull back.....all i can ever think of , while im ignoring her, is the phrase 'bitch slap'....:-)

the bad thing about making the decisions to change pharmacies, on principle of course, with me, it's always about principle's the fact that my new pharmacy, has not an Rx right, yet...last month, they misfilled my levothyroxin....not a big deal..but wrong anyway! you just can't have consistant wrongs in a pharmacy, and they are definitely consistant!! ill have to move again...and it's a small town, so there isnt much move space available!!

im going to make it happen (the smoking, not the bitch slapping)....i tried the hypnosis, (don't waste your money), but it did help me realize that there is going to be no easy way to accomplish this....but i know it has to happen, and it has to happen now!

wish me well, ill keep you posted, and you'll probably get sick of my rambling, once the weather turns, and im stuck in the house....bored outta my mind, and i move into my blog page!!
