Your worst date EVER

Okey like the title says.. this is all about your worst date.

I will start with mine.

OKey so I had just split with my husband of 4 years.. Complete bastard that he was... I was happy and excited to hook up with someone who actually liked me. It had been 4 months after I left my husband.. and I went to some Country bar, this was in 1993.

Sooooo right before I left, I met this guy, he seemed very... enthusiastic. OK so I full on was kissingon him before i left. I am sure I was drinking.. thats my story and I'm sticking to it.


Anyhow..I think we exchanged numbers.

We went out a couple of times, dancing, etc.. then one night he picks me up... and i was all dressed up.. i think he says something about wanting to go to this campground place. I was like ok.. so we went. (ok cmon i was starved for affection) .. Anyhow.. so he puts up this little tent.. for us to get into.. and I was all dressed up!! Anyhow.. this was in my .. not so secure days.. so I figured in order to keep him.. I had to sleep with him.. and hey I thought he was hot at the time..

So that was our date.. romantic huh? Most of our "dates" after that were usually just sex.

Soooooooooo then came the kicker..

I got a babysitter for the weekend for my kids. I drove 3 hours to where he was. Stayed in this teensy room with him. We went out the first night... and he bought me one beer. I didnt have any money on me do I couldnt buy anymore. meanwhile the whoel night he played pool with some other chick.

Then he procceds to tell me he is too drunk, and I have to drive him back to where he lives. Well hell, I didnt know where I was going, but got him back. Then in the morning, he didnt offer me anything to eat for breakfast, but he ate what he had there. Then we walked around where he worked.. and he ran into one of his boss' bosses. So he tells them that I would be HAPP to get them all lunch. So they give me the money.. and ME the visitor, runs to go get them ALL lunch!!!

Then when i got back.. he had the NERVE to complain that it took me an hour to get them all food.


That was the end i think.. at least I would hope so.. I got pneumonia, and he said he was afriad he woudl catch it so he couldnt come visit me. A girl called me and told me he was out dancing that weekend.. of course.. Sooooo I think I stuck with him for about.. jeez. 4 or 5 months..

Then I met Scott.. and dumped the other guy on his ass.. I still see him from time to time.. jsut shine him on... I mean .. he was the worst guy I had ever dated.


Pretty sad huh?

OKey now you all have to share too.

Lots of stuff here..

OK so here goes.. yesterday and today have really tried my patience. Why? because I am out of school and thus here to sit.. and think.. argh.. LOL.. but mostly what got me.. ws the call from school.. Yeah ..those of you who are parents know what this means...

So apparently my son "kicked" this girl in the leg and the girl was having surgery on her knee the next day, it was already damaged, but my son hurt this girl.

Yeah, talk about feeling like CRAP... so i asked my son... what the heck were you THINKING??? He says.. well mom i didnt really kick her.. I just put my leg in front of hers, to try to make her trip... (yes that is SO much better) .. then he says.. well we do it all the time... *exasperated sigh*

SOOO I told him.. you are now like a Disneyland ride.. keep all arms and legs to YOURSELF... hope that works well.


My daughter is again pissed at me and Scott for not being millionares able to buy everything the little princess wants.

I told her.. she isnt getting anything until her birthday, which is in June.. nooo she want sa new skirt.. too bad.

There are people in China that dont have new skirts..and she isnt getting one either..

Arhghghgh


So anyhow..


Scott asked if i wanted to got ot Home Depot.. said we could hit In N Out and grab some cheeseburgers... ok now.. I havent eaten real food since Monday... the whole of this week has been spent eating oatmeal and drinking coffee, an occasional popsicle thrown in .


So i decided to try to eat something at home.. It went down ok.. so I called Scott up and said.. lets go.. get away from the kids. yayyyy..


So we had dinner. Then he says..you want Starbucks? I was like.. oooo okey :D So then I got my grande cafe mocha with whipped cream... yumm... then Walmart, where I proceeded to get more stuff.. then he filled my car's gas tank full of gas!! woohooooo! I hit it big tonight! :P I thought it was very nice of him to do all that. Especially the gas because I am headed to my sisters tomorrow and its bout 90 minutes there.. and another 90 mintues back. I think he feels guilty missng another family occasion. But he has to work on the house...plus usually when we do go to a family function, he shows off all his battle wounds from work.. LOL.. He is such a baby that way.

Anyhow.. I made him open all the doors for me tonight.. It was quite nice... of course.. It may also have something to do with me actually "putting out" this evening as well. LOL I'm sure thats TMI for y'all..b tu hey.. I was radioactive for a week, and then the monthly thing.. I think its been way over 2 weeks.. poor guy.. LOL

Oh well..

My next entry is going to be about your worst date.. think about it.. while I write..

Pain.. pain.. pain ... ouch

OK so here is the deal. I gotr this radioactive iodine two weeks ago. The Doctor said that I may have a sore throat and flu like symptoms and that was normal.

So yesterday.. it was weird.. everything I ate felt like it was scraping down my throat... i figured maybe it was swollen.. no problem.. i ate dinner last night with not too much problem. I woke up this morning..and grabbed one of those store bought cake donuts.. OMG PAIN >>> my throat didnt even hurt before i took the bite.. its not like normal sore throats..I guess its swollen and the food cant get by so it is killing me instead.


I will be taken all further food today in a blender ... or maybe i wont eat.. omg it HURTS

*cries*


Hopefully it will go away soon.

The End of Another Semester is near!

OK .. I managed to survive semester TWO.

With a few small problems.. :P

OKey so I marked the answers on the test sheet and forgot to bubble in the scantron.. arghghghhghghg remind me not to do that on the final.


And the skills check off.. insulin should be drawn clear to cloudy.. . not cloudy to clear.. hey I cught it.. my instructor loves me.


I'm sure its because of my cheery outlook... or perhaps because I am going to teach Hyperthryoidism to his class next semester.. hmmmm

In any case.. my final is on Tuesday. so cross your fingers for me.. there are about 3 or 4 people that may not pass this class.. luckily .. none of them is me.. but cross your fingers for them too..

Although.. my friend Brenda is going to join me in this semester.. as one of the people in my class have not a snowball's chance in hell of passing this semester. So Brenda.. my pal from Summer 2003 Chemistry... are going to graduate together.. how fun is that???


She is an LVN, so she only has to complete 2 semesters to be an RN.. woohooooo

We are almost there!!!

Ok going to study now.. bbl!

Skills Check Off

Ok so Friday was the skills check off in my nursing class. What they do is over the semester they show you how to do a skill, once.. in that once .. you are suppose dto practice that skill and all th eother one syou learn over the semester and know how to do them at any given time.

OK, now you all know me, and if you dont.. now you will... LOL... I am Ms. Procrastinator.. Ms. Last Minute, ok we need to study this one now because its in 3 days.

So, I went early to school on Thursday, and practiced all day Thursday, then on Friday i got up and I hung IV's on the back of my bathroom door. I suctioned pink doggy's trach (pink doggy is my stuffed dog, and is pink:P) I irrigated pink doggy's foly catheter.

I was practicing and practicing.. when it came time to drive over, my friend Flor, whom I really like.. but she has a habit of making me crazy as well. Anyhow.. she tells me how scared she is about the check off. I am getting more and more nervous. I'm doing some deep breathing.. then she does.. we were both making big sighs on the way there.

and I am 4th.. I dont want to be 4th.. but I have to be.. its my scheduled time..

Then suddenly this song entered my head, "Be not afraid... I go before you always, come follopw me, and I will give you rest"

OK Ia m not the most religious person in the world. I used to be Catholic.. in fact in my heart I do believe i am still Catholic, but..I was really sick of going to church and being asked for money. I dont have it. And for the other church i went to .. they are snobs. I supose if I just went to church and went home it would be ok.. but.. i dont like the politics behind that other church, which is not catholic btw.

Anyhoooow.

That song.

Be not afraid, I go before you always..

I was terrified of this skills check off.. and i happen to think of this song.. and think.. He is with me. He always is and will always be. But at that time i needed it.

I calmed down a little until i got there.. then I was pacing and a sudden calm came over me.. I was called in.. I performed my skill, (with a couple mishaps.. but i corrected them), and I got a 94!!!

woohoooo!

Now, I do believe in God.. and I do belive in my own religion. Which is mine. I dont project my beliefs on anyone else and I expect the same in return.

but it just made me feel safe.

over and out

On being a parent of a teenage girl

Now, being the parent of a teenage girl you would think most of the time I would like to strangle her. Not so the case.. She is a pretty good kid. She does ignore me some of the timewhen I ask her to clean dishes, or put stuff away. But, she is a good kid..

First disappointment of the day. She's been skipping swimming practice. She wanted to be on the team.. but she had ot practice.. and practice requires commitment and dedication. Well. I think because she wasnt that great swimmer, she got tired of working on it. She was dead last in one even at the last swim meet and my mother was there watching her.. So I think that the daughter was embarrassed. So, she has been skipping practice so she doesnt get to go to the meet tomorrow.

Scott, is pissed at her. For not following thru. But.. I mean if the kid really really doesnt want ot o do it.. I dont believe in forcing them. I mean if sh eis 19 and living at home.. eating all my food and not working or doing anything around the house because she doens twant to.. no that wont happen.

But, I dont believe in making her work at this swimming even tho we spent a couple undred bucks on getting her set up for it. oh well.. I mean my mom probably paid thousands in Community College courses I never followed thru with and i was 17!

I think they should try different things and find out what they like. Its what I am going thru in Nursing.. I keep trying different areas to find where I'd really like to be when I graduate.

Anyhow.. that was the first thing..

The second was she broke up with the boyfriend. Now he bought her roses and paid at the movies.. and called her.. and etc.. so we all know.. he is a "nice guy" and will finish last right? Well I dont know what was involved.. but she says.. she just didnt feel the same way about him anymore.. So she broke it off with him.

He left two message on her cell phone.

One said.. I hate you and i never want to see you again..adn never want to talk to you again.. then he hung up.


The next one said.. oh yeah . I forgot to tell you .. you are a slut..

She checked her mesages and ran to her room crying..

Now.. I wan tthis kids head on a pike... and I dont care how it gets there.. but its going.. I asked her for this kids number.. and his mother's number... daughter wouldnt give it to me.. I said fine.. I want to send him a text message.. she said no to that too.

She was crying.. when i went in later at dinnertime..she said." I dont want to live anymore" and cried more..

Well, that is my biggest fear.. teenage suicide.. tried it myself a couple of times.. but I was in a big family and no one really knew me anyway.. but since i've been through it I have talked and talked to my kids.. nothing is as bad as it seems when you are a teenager.. its the end of the world.. then later when you are older.. you look back and think.. well thats stupid.. I'd of told him to fucking piss off..

But now its devastating..

And my heart ached for her.. my poor child.. my poor little girl..

So I hugged and hugged.. todl her everything was going to be ok. and that .. her ex was a big jerk.. lashing out at her. because she dumped him.. he didnt mean what he said.. and he was just hurt and angry.. and later on in the year.. sooner or later.. they would be friends again ..

She didnt eat dinner.. just stayed in her room.. sitting there in the dark..

well i was NOT going to stand for that!! no kid makes mine run away from her family! The little shit... so .. after I ate.. well heck I gotta eat.. the thryoid is still in my system for another couple of weeks.. :P

So.. after I ate.. I grabbed The Wedding Singer.. daughter's favorite movie.. got a couple Drumsticks from the freezer.. and a couple Diet Cokes.. and went into her room.. when I flipped the light on.. and popped the movie in..

So we had a good .. about 2 hours of a fun movie and ice cream.. I think she was feeling better when she went to bed.

I just hurt for her.. and wish I could make everything alright.

oh and kill the kid who hurt her.. .I told my son to tell him.. if he saw him.. that he was in big trouble with me.. and I best not see him..

So we'll see.. son will probably forget :P .. But he was upset that someone made his sister cryl.. I know other days he give her shit all the time.. but this is an outsider.. one who needs his ass kicked.. but my son is 12 and this guy is 14.. so my son won't be strating anything..

But I'd really like to tell this kid.. hey i understand your feeelings were hurt.. but my kid aint no slut.. of course I'd be saying this as he lies on the ground writhing in pain from the kick to the nuts.


Anyhooow.. yes I'm a bit overzealous.

Been gone awhile

OK as the title suggests, I've been gone a bit, will catch up on all of your blogs over the weekend, while I am pretending to study ok ? :P

Well April 3rdish, that weeekend I went to Laughlin, it was REALLY fun. Then I got back and there was a paper due, then school, and then I got my radioactive iodine treatment. The day I got it, i came home and slept for hours. The day after, which was yesterday, I felt nauseous. Today I went to the store and the bank, now I'm tired.

I need to eat the donuts and Gatorade I bought.. chocolate always makes me feel better :P

I missed you all.. and will reply to anything I missed later.!!! *hugs*
