for her birthday, her family is taking her to Florida to Swim iwth the Dolphins!!  isn't that Da Bomb???

i've always wanted to do that, and i know she has, too. but i'm really happy for her, not jealous.  she has such a deep connection iwth dolphins, it's almost scary. when she went to Sea World and visisted the dolphin petting pool, *all* the dolphins in the pool gathered around her and wouldn't leave her. she had to eventually physically walk away from the pool before the dolphins would even approach someone else!!!  isn't that cool?

i can't wait for the pics!

I called my absolutely *favorite* vendor yesterday to check on a detail; found out she had been laid off just the day before and her  company may not survive this "economic turndown".  i was heartbroken for her, especially considering she had lost her house a few months ago, had brought her family to live iwth her brother, and then bought a town house just last month!! 

we gotta take care of each other.  seriously.

so i'm sitting here having the time of my life

i have so much work to do for the office it's not funny -- i'm carrying a bulging briefcase of papers that need to be dealt with back and from from home to work and back. and that's not counting my to do list.
there is so much that is behind at home it's scary -- bills and car payments and laundry and filing papers and cleaning out the fridge, and more i can't even write up.
my kids are arguing more frequently than not;  i'm glad to see that my youngest is standing up for herself, at least.
my eldest won't even speak to me when she calls the house and i happen to answer the phone.
my son got caught with pot at school last month; 7 packages of it!! as usual, he got off with a slap on the wrist: a few days suspension and they let him back in. -- no expulsion.  he got off with a $100 fine from the cops, and 10 hours of community service -- and a DARE program.  how terrifying.  that'll really scare him into obeying the law, right?
my son is batting aboutr 1,000 tonite; he had two friends stop by outside the house; he wanted to go outside to talk to them, and was furious when i told him he couldn't --  i told him, if  you want to see your friends, they can come upstairs and come in the house like repectable people. buncha fuckin' stoners.
this is the 2nd time in two hours that i've been in tears about little nothings -- i hope to the Gods that this is PMS.

at 5:50pm my son asked for permission to go out to dinner with his best friend.  he had no money.  his friend was going to pay for dinner.  <will this damn kid EVER get a job??>\   i agreed he could go.
 
a minute later, he tells me that they are going to a restaurant in Westboro (about 15 minutes away) and they may not be back by his curfew of 8pm, and could i extend it for tonite. i agreed to that, too, against my better judgement.

note here: when i was in high school, i was home by 6pm every day except for school events and work.

ok, so guess what time the friend picked up my son??  yup, 7:10pm. so guess who *definitely* won't be home till 8:30 or later??

i'm taking bets on how late he'll be. 

damn, i hate being played.

Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you're in a heterosexual marriage and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.

i'm having weird music cravings. 

not cravings for weird music, just weird cravings for music that i'm not used to craving.  i'm not sure how to explain it any better than that.

it's October, right?  i'm dying for xmas music.  i never do that.  every year, i won't let the kids play xmas music before Thanksgiving is OVER.  it's just not ... ... normal.  the 12 days of Christmas START on 12/25. 

so it's 6am and i'm the only one up in the house and i'm listenking to The Irish Rovers singing Down Among the Bushes of Jerusalem. 

other music cravings incxlude Jambalaya by Harry Connick Jr., Alice's Restaurant by Arlo Guthrie, and Chicken Cordon Bleus by Steve Goodman. 

i'm sure this would say something very profound about me if i brought it to Signor Freud, but to me, it's just Weird Music Cravings.

Today is a New Englad day that is God's reward for living in this part of the country.  the air is cool, crisp, and clean, the sun is bright, and the leaves are at PEAK. 

and the Red Sox came back from a 7-0 deficit to beat the Rays 8-7.

cheers
