Anger Management

I must confess that I have a problem in becoming angry and belligerent to people. Innocent people that have nothing to do with why I am angry. And there never is just one reason for the anger. It's an accumulation of irritations and obligations, etc. I have behaved badly at stores in front of customers and especially to the cashiers. I have yelled, cursed, and threatened many customer service reps on the phone whether it be the phone company, the electric company, for myself or for my mother. I take things out on anyone near me. Last Friday, I had a problem with my virus protection program on my computer through my cable service provider and did the chat thing with a customer service rep. Yes, I typed plenty of inappropriate things to let him know the depth of my annoyance.

Don't worry, karma did bite me in the ass today at work. A patient treated me in the same exact way that I treat other people when I'm pissed. No, it did not feel good and I did get angry at them. So, …

Another Birthday and a Broken Foot

My other daughter's birthday is today. My 2 oldest kids are 2 years and 4 days apart. She is 24 years old. She also amazes me. She gave me nothing but grief when she was a kid and we didn't get along at all. Now, we have plenty to talk and laugh about and have a lot of the same interests. Although, everything I wear is still hideous to her. She is also a great mother who has lots of patients for her brood. I love you Nathalie!!

On another note, Nat's 3 year old daughter broke her foot on Monday. She hasn't been able to walk and horse around since then. She had a cast put on today and has to wear it for 3 weeks. She can walk now but will not do so yet. She has been a trooper about it.

Thank You, Hubby!

As I was reading my posts in FB this morning, I ran across a link about dads and I was thankful that I have the husband that I have. The link was to a blog post, titled, Calling all Dads, from the blog, Dad Revolution. The post was about how the government census classifies dads and how society still thinks of dads as babysitters.

I am thankful that my husband has changed plenty of diapers for all four of our kids. He has made bottles, gave them baths, walked the floors with them. He cooks, does dishes, and picks the house up. He will do laundry also. He does have many faults, but, all in all, I choose to put up with them in order to experience all the goodness that I do get. Also, now that the kids are adults, they have a great relationship with their dad still.

Now we have 6 grandchildren and they all love him dearly. He gives them plenty of attention, kisses and hugs, and shares his coffee with them. Also, when I watch the kids for my daughters, I can count on him to help me take c…

My Little Girls Birthday!

Today is my oldest child's birthday. She is 26 years old. Not a little girl anymore. Although, she will always by a little girl to me. She has a lovely disposition and it amazes me how she turned out that way having the parents that she has. We are anything but lovely. lol. I am looking forward to watching her grow even more into the woman she will become. I love you, Patricia Marie O'Donnell, with all my heart!!

Wonderful Tuesday

For the last two months I have had Tuesday's off from work.  That is my laundry day and I try to make a home cooked meal and see the grand kids. Today, I am happy to say that I did my dishes, cleaned the kitchen, and toilets in the morning before the grand kids came over at 1 p.m. Then while watching the kids, I did my laundry and started supper at 4:30 p.m. By 7 p.m. supper and dishes were done up and I had a nice visit with the hubby.

Kendra kept sneaking off outside to play and Kaydence was getting upset because she wanted to go outside also. I handed Aubree off to my son while I took her outside. She didn't want to stay out there long because the wind was too strong and cold still. They played good together for the most part. Only a few tiffs and swear words. I now have 6 new kid apps on my phone that Kendra picked out. Thank goodness they were free.

We are busy making plans for a garden and chickens this spring. I plan on getting an area cleaned and painted for my sewing …

Day Off

I had a day off from work today and drove Trish & the kids to Canton so that she could pick something up. Then we stopped in at Nathalie's for a couple of hours. And then Trish & the kids came to my house and Nathalie & her kids followed a couple of hours later. So all day was spent with my kids and grandkids. We sang and danced and played the day away. It's fun to watch all the kids and their attitudes, laughs, and smiles. I am in love with all my grandchildren!

Good Day

Today was my day off from work. I slept in, surfed the net, watched several episodes of The United States of Tara. Finally, I ventured downstairs and did the dishes and eventually 4 loads of laundry. And knitted 8 rows on my dishcloth. I did not take a shower and forgot to take my meds. I'll just pop the sanity one here in a bit and 1 more in the morning so that I can put up with people at work tomorrow.
I had dinner done before 6 p.m. Dinner consisted of browned cubed chicken breasts (youngest son cubed it) in a general tso sauce. I have never bought this sauce and it wasn't bad but sure wasn't worth freaking $4 a bottle. I wanted to make a blogger friends sesame chicken recipe but the ingredients were too expensive. I will have to buy the different sauces one at a time because I definitely want to try it.
I had a few calls and texts but thank god nobody demanded I go do something for them. So, now I'm just killing time on the internet before I take my husband to wor…

Blah Mood

Yah, this is the mood I'm in quite frequently. I get really bored easily and working; taking care of the house; adult children and grandchildren leave me exhausted. There is a million things I want to do and all I see is obstacles and work and no money.
