Rambling along

I know it's been almost 2 weeks since I've posted. Can't say why I haven't. I have had some good ideas for posts, but the thought of actually writing it quickly turned me against posting ever again. What can I say? I'm moody like that.



cancer


cancer

Cancer is symbolized by the Crab. You're deeply emotional and intuitive, and your top concern is family. Something of a homebody, you prefer to stay in rather than go out on the town. You can be moody, drawing into your protective shell if things get too intense around you.

See? I told you so! ;)

Which also, I guess, is why I haven't posted. So, I can, in fact, tell you why. Please disregard the second sentence.



Anyway.....


My friend from work and I have been going to workout after work these past couple weeks and one night we were heading back to the Ladies' lockerroom when 3 young boys were standing in the hall probably waiting for their mothers. Anyway, the one was saying"Hold your horses! That's an old saying! They said that back in the old days. Hold your horses!" S and I just laughed at the little boys. They were probably no older than 7, but probably younger than that. It was just funny hearing them say things like "They said that way back when" I used to say that! Crazy!


I'm going to see if my one professor was being real when he said that I could teach a studio class. I was thinking of getting a part-time job and this would be far better than any other job I could get. I mean, I really don't want to do anything retail again. Been there. Done that. So, keep your fingers crossed. I think it would be great to do. It would probably be for a tech drawing class where we learned how to hand draft and I think it would be great to renew those skills myself. Plus, I could pass on some wisdom to the kids in the class who think this is just like "Trading Spaces" or some HGTV show. I know I thought that when I started school, but I quickly grew out of that mindset.



I paid my credit card bill online last night and realized my APR was 15%! Are they crazy?!?! I've NEVER had one higher than 9.9% and now they've felt the need to raise it to 15%?! I think I should get a much lower one just for dealing with all the crap they send me in the mail CONSTANTLY!!! I mean, they would call me night after night about joining their credit protection program and even though I'd keep telling them "NO!" they'd still call the next night. So, I finally told them that I do not want it now nor ever so please take me off their list. They said they would. So, what happened the following week? You got it! They called me yet again to join this program. I got a little agitated with the person calling me and told them what had transpired the week prior and how I had been called incessantly by them for this program. I haven't gotten a call since!


I'm looking to get a new car. I really would like to get one before winter really arrives. It's been snowing off and on here the past couple weeks, but nothing that has really stuck to the ground. They've called for snow all week this week and we haven't seen much. I think they just call for it b/c they have no idea if it's really going to happen or not. Oh and they've called for sun too a couple times, but I haven't seen it in about a week. This is when fall/winter begins to suck royally around here. Having gray(grey) skies constantly is enough to make any sane person want to gouge their eyes out so they wouldn't have to see it any more. Can you tell I'm not a fan of winter in Ohio?


I'm mad at Skii right now. She told me not to come down this weekend! I was just going down there to help them move, but I guess I'm not wanted. Oh, sure, she'll tell you that they're not moving this weekend, but probably next weekend, but still. I can't believe she would tell me not to come down there! I mean, it's not like gas is an arm and a leg and I'm made of money. Geez! Seriously, wouldn't you be ticked?! Chad gets it! He figured it out since I didn't answer Skii's calls or reply to her texts last night, which had nothing to do with the fact that my phone was upstairs, in my purse, on silent, but all to do with the fact that Skii told me not to come down there this weekend. Yep. That's it! This 28 year friendship is OVER!!! Got it, Skii?!



Whew! Glad I got all that off my chest. Thanks for listening and I sure hope I didn't bore you all to tears. I know how it is reading these posts that just ramble and ramble on with no point or end in sight! We all read Phats' blogs, so you know what I'm saying! :D (just kidding, buddy! I'm sure your posts have a point, I just don't get them!)
