So, GICOE is still gone. Its so nice and quiet around here...everyone is walking around with smiles and I swear I saw a co worker actually floating down the hall earlier. The air is just so much lighter around here.
Im having second thoughts about taking the other job IF I get it? Why? Because at this point I dont want to work HARDER. Yes, I would get away from GICOE...but I would have to do all my homework at home, and its just easier to do it here. But...I might change my mind if GICOE was here right now. I'll probably decide I dont want it, and then he will come back and I'll kick myself for not taking it. I dunno. I guess Ill just wait and see.
I have learned a very important lesson this week. See, I have never thrown a kids birthday party, so I made a rookie mistake. I bought the plates, etc, BEFORE I ordered a cake. Now I cant just find a cake that matches. She wanted Barbie and I thought I could have a Barbie cake made to match the plates etc (that are NOT Barbie)...but the only Barbie cake our local bakery has is purple. Yeah, not pink..purple. They said they cant change it up because its "copyrighted". Okay. They said they could make a pink cake and I could put my own Barbie toys on it...but I keep having vision of CAKE WRECKS...so Im not going to do that. Instead Im taking in a cup today so the decorator can make a cake that matches the decorations. So, no Barbie cake. Its okay, I really dont like her anyway, she is so fake.
We had a yard sale this weekend. I sold a van that doesnt run. Cheap....some guy bought it for parts. I was practically giving stuff away. I just want all the crap gone...and the van will be gone from the front of the house, so it makes it all worth it. My new chair with the hood over it (for shade) didnt work out as well as I hoped it would...I still got sun on my face and its pinkish now. I prefer to be a pasty white, thank you.
I had a good chuckle over a note between L and S that I found. She had written out her party guest list with the title "My Birthday Party Girls". It listed a bunch of her friends, one which was Caty (not her real name). Now, Caty is a girl who chases L around. She chases him at school and she chases him at church camp. He calls it "torture"..."she was torturing me". Lol. Anyway at the bottom of the list here was the correspondence between S and L:
S: Danger, L. On March 27th, danger. Caty.
L: Who cares, S.
S: I do.
L: I dont.
S: What if she takes your back pack and wont give it back?
L: Mom will make her give it back and besides, I am stronger than her.
S: Im just warning you...danger.
L: I dont care.
It cracks me up that they must have sat at the table and pushed the paper back and forth at each other...like it was some huge secret, and then leave it laying there. So funny.
Im going to be posting a clarification on the title of my blog. I feel its misleading in a way. I mean, it makes sense to me, but I am afraid that it is misunderstood by some people that I love, and so I want to clarify. I'll probably do that tommorrow. Or maybe later today, if I get a wild hair.
