Last call

Wow, am I ashamed

I haven't posted anything here in a long time. How shameful of me. I have been busy with facebook and not much else. Anyhow, I hope this post finds everyone well. I have been busy as usual. Not too busy where I didn't spend Saturday finding geocaches in the Amsterdam, NY area. Got 12 to be exact! I get kind of a geocaching fever this time of year. I want to be out all the time looking for them. I know it sounds kind of stupid to some people. My sister and Dad both have the same problem! Poor Rich has been so good about it though and tags along. In fact he usually finds them before I do.
Speaking of Rich, we are ENGAGED! He popped the question in geocacher fashion by hiding a fake cache for me to find. When I found it, I opened it up and there was a piece of paper inside that said "Marry Me cache". I turned around and there he was with a ring! I had told him I wanted a non traditional engagement ring so he got me a sapphire surrounded by diamonds. It is very pretty!
I also have more news. I got a new position at my job. I will be an Inhouse transportation CNA. Also staffing clerk on the weekend I work. I start that job in a week. I can't wait to get out of rehab, it has become unbearable for me lately. I hate it. Not the residents of course, just the job and the monotony of it. I'm afraid I have been feeling awfully lazy about it too and uncaring. I have no enthusiam for it anymore. Of course having a co-worker you can't get along with doesn't help at all. Mrs. Snarky comments still is at it and probably is thrilled that I am leaving. Well good for her, she can have someone else to torment now. Hopefully whoever fills my spot won't put up with her crap. I am too soft, that is my problem.
Two and a half more months of school. My son will hopefully graduate. He keeps teetering on the edge with his grades. One falls and then he brings it up and then another subject falls. He is lazy and doesn't want to really try. He has a book report due tomorrow and he hasn't even finished the book. In fact he has been reading the same book all year! Maybe he can come up with something of a report to turn in. He is doing volunteer work at Saratoga County EOC for his Participation in Government class. He has been helping Gary with various tasks. Gary had hernia surgery and can't lift so Travis is his lifter. Travis has been working on arranging a freezer for a couple days now. I am supposed to meet for the bankruptcy on Friday. I am still lacking some paperwork and hope it comes in the mail this week. The credit card companies are really breathing down my neck as I haven't paid them for a couple months now. I probably should of and will get yelled at by the lawyer more than likely. But if I am filing bankruptcy what difference does it make really? My credit is ruined anyhow. Ok have to go to work now. Hope everyone has a good week... Linda

Happy St. Patrick's Day


Anybody going to drive any snakes out of Ireland today? Not me, but I am going to have some corned beef and cabbage!
We had a fairly good trip to the Great Escape lodge. Kids seemed to have a good time although Travis was more concerned about talking with his friends on his laptop as that is what he did most of the time. We did a bit of geocaching this weekend. Got over 10. Hope everyone has a good day today! Linda

3 almost 4 day weekend

Had to leave work early today which was fine by me. Sarah got "sick" at school again. Funny she is always fine once she gets home. We are going to the great escape lodge again this weekend. We went last year and had a good time. We won't be going until Sunday afternoon and then spending the night and coming back Monday afternoon. Here is a picture of Buzzy who appears to be a "little" happy to see me! Click on photo to enlarge.

Remember my post about drugging the kids?

I am sure some of you remember my post about drugging up the kids at the dentist. This Youtube video is viral right now...

Sleep study


I went in last night for my sleep study. What a crummy experience! While the staff was polite, the experience itself was not fun. I had wires all over and bands around me and things stuck up my nose. It took me along time to get to sleep. I am being tested for sleep apnea. Maybe this will help me find out why I am so exhausted all the time. By the way, that is not me in the picture, but I had wires like that all over me! I won't get results for about a week. Linda
