Therapy, Scouts & Parking Attendants

It's no surprise that I have not been in a normal state of mind lately. I'm struggling with my moods and often find myself in such a funk that I don't care to do anything.

Last week, my BFF calls me (I think she's making sure I'm not slitting my wrists or eating an entire bottle of pills) and we chat and next thing I know she's talking about kidnapping me that weekend.

She arrived at 9am Saturday morning and whisked me away to Galena, IL. It's about a 2 hour drive - and at one point I considered jumping out of the moving vehicle while she pressed on and made me reach so far into my brain that I thought I'd get lost in there.

I survived the car ride and we arrived in Galena ready to enjoy our girl's only weekend. Imagine our surprise when our first sight upon entering the town are poncho-clad boy scouts! And HUNDREDS of them. While she tried to run them all over find a parking spot, she commented on her knack of having the best timing.

We finally find a lot that's open with a sign that reads "All Day Parking". We wonder if we need to pay (most parking in Galena is free), and then realize we don't see any attendant anywhere. In the meantime another car pulls up, and we graciously let them get out first so we could follow their lead.

Just then, a pimply faced, rather large just-outta-high-school boy saunters over and sticks out his fat hand for his pay out. The occupants in the other car are conversing with him; telling him that he should at least turn the sign around to let everyone know that it costs $10 to park there prior to pulling in.

His comment?

"Well, then no one will come park here."

Seriously. He also had the audacity to say "You have the option to leave."

Listen here Hefty-Boy. I also have the option of punching you in the face.

I'm certain I saw him later in the chocolate shop buying his weight in fudge with a fistful of $10 bills.

Ups and Downs

There are decent days, there are bad days and there are days where I can't imagine making it thru the entire day.

I am bouncing around with emotions - from complete hatred, to disgust, to fear, to sympathy, to complete exhaustion.

Prior to the job loss event, I had plans to go out with friends to Dave & Buster's on Friday night to celebrate my birthday and another friend's. I still planned on going out, and hoped I'd be able to enjoy myself and not bring anyone down with my mood.

I got there and walked in to the table set with party decor; tablecloth and confetti, birthday balloons and a gorgeous cake.

There were presents galore, and best of all....friends. We enjoyed a meal together, laughed (alot!), and then hit the games for a bit of fun.

I've got wonderful friends, not only for remembering and celebrating my birthday with me, but for caring about me. Thank you so much: Kathy, April, Nicole, Jace, Tina and Caroline; for a night full of smiles, laughter and memories.

And a big thank you to my BFF, Melissa, for harrassing me by phone to check up on me, and not giving in to my bullshit, and for going the extra mile just to show you care.

When Life Just Really Sucks

I probably won't be posting much. I haven't had much to say as it is.

My husband lost his job today.

With my recent reduction in pay and hours, I don't know how we will survive.

I've Got Nothin'

I cannot think of an entire thing to write about these days. You'd think the fact that my 29th birthday was this weekend and my husband didn't even get me a card would be enough to warrant some sort of post.

Or that I almost wasn't allowed into the casino boat when my BFF and I went for my birthday.

Or the Adventures of the Ho-Mobile.

But, really ... I got nothin'!
