The Endless Summer
It's Labor Day, the "official" end of summer. Which reminds me that last year at this time I was living in the land of "the eneless summer", Southern California. I really miss that place. I am happy with my new career and house, but I really do miss the beach and sunsets, driving up and down the PCH. One of our friends from Cali has had to move back home to Bingotown. Her hubby works for the same company mine does and it was time for them to return. They were there for 3 years. We will commiserate together this winter . Maybe I will get a tanning membership for the winter.
On the lighter side, the kiddos go back to school Wednesday and I can reclaim a small amount of sanity in the house.

I am at the office today, doing floortime and the phone has not rung once for me in 3 hours. I have gotten my desk organized, done some filing and ate some chinese food. No knitting. I am beginning to think about it more though. My class is over, and I have not finished my homework either. Or taken my test. Uggh. I have been very busy at real estate, and loving it. Can't wait for that first check, which will come on or about Oct. 25 if my first sale goes through. Yep. I'm gonna celebrate somehow when that happens, havent decided how yet. Probably I will buy myself a little sumthin, sumthin ya know, like a new purse or jewelry.

Have You Hugged a Bitch Today?
Man was I ever feeling bitch- aayyy
today. The heat, and humidity when combined with monthly hormonal fluctuations caused great internal distress for me. See, we bitches can't help it. It is totally out of our hands and we are just reacting to the idiots all around us who get in our way. Do I hear an Amen, sistas'? No, I have not been drinking.

What the 'h' is going on?
It's a pretty typical night at the Youngs house. The males are camped in front of the tv, alternately fighting over the remote or the computer, glad I don't have that problem anymore. They are watching some show about the real pirates of the Caribbean. I never get that damn remote anymore. It's always some show about war, or turkey hunting (incredibly booorrring) or chhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhghhhhh my h just popped off my NEW freakin keyboard. WTF? I was gonna say chopper show. Ok my h is all better now.
I have something to bitch about. It is nothing new, actually a previous post touched on this situation. It is my bathroom. Every, and I do mean every, e v e r y time I go in there (and I am usually doing the pee dance...) I have to clean the seat. WHY, oh WHY is this so? I worked very diligently with these boys with the whole aiming thing, lifting the seat etc when they were little lads learning how to go. My oldest is off the hook as is my husband, so that leaves 3 suspects and their friends. I may install a security camera or somethhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh there goes my h again. This time I think I fixed it for real. I thought also about "sprinkling" something on the seat next time I'm in there and a boy is pounding on the door yelling he has to "deuce". Vaseline? That would fix there little asses. I do really love them but this must end. The worst is when I have been gone for the day and I return of course really needing to go and somebody not only sprinkled the seat, but they didn't flush a steaming deuce. No fan going either so you open the door and its been dutch ovening in there for God knows how long. Alright, that was really gross, but its true. It's my life, the sad, sad reality of my life. This is what is has come down to. Me, writing about poop.

I am slightly freaking out because I need to get a head shot for my business cards and ads. I need to loose that 10 last pounds and my hair really needs to grow NOW !!!! Business cards are ordered in quantities of 1000, thats alot of cards with my pudgie cheeks and hair I don't luv getting passed all over Broome County. Not to mention the newsprint, internet and tv. CRAP. I know in the grand scheme of things this is minor. I know I am vain. Knowing these things about myself doesn't change anything though. I am giving myself one more week for the weight thing, and then thats it.
My brain is absolutely flooded with new stuff and business details to tie together. I have decided to banish self doubt and all memories of past failure. I can do this. I am capable. This business will be my largest stretch ever.
I haven't started my socks yet, but I think this holilday weekend I will cast on. In a couple weeks I will start more training classes for 6 weeks. I need to remember to build into my life that time to divert and create in the midst of starting a serious business. One of my sons asked me if I was going to ever have my cafe that I have always wanted but thought I could never do. This could very well be the vehicle to get me to that point. Life sure is interesting and full of twists and turns. A year ago I was preparing to move to California for 1 to 3 years. I couldn't have imagined what came next. What doesn't kill ya only makes you stronger.

Feels Like The First Time....
Ohhh yeah, baby... my first time with my new notebook. I am loving it. So yesterday was very interesting. We had this ginormous flood, and as the oldtimers say "Back in '72, Agnes wasn't this bad..." I do remember Agnes in '72. I was about 8 I believe. And I was living about 2 minutes from where I do now at my grandmothers house. We never got to go out and gawk at the flood. I went for a walk yesterday and tv just doesn't do the sight of a flood justice. Unbelieveable. I want to go back down and take pictures later. I feel awful for all the people who have lost everything, and especially those who just went through this last year. I am glad I live on a hill.
Ok, I just have to say that I feel a little like Carrie Bradshaw (Sex in the City). My favorite show, I think because that was always a dream of mine. Living in NYC with my other sexy single girlfriends, having a fabulous career, drinking cocktails and wearing fabulous clothes. We all have secret fantasies that will never become reality. And thats ok. I figure I get to try out all these different lives through my fantasy life. In reality it would never be as good.

I got through my first day of training at Century 21, my brain is a blur of new info to soak in. I feel like such a duh though because the phone system befuddled me setting up my voice mail. Oooh, yeah I have a desk and voicemail. I feel real. Of course I share the space, but it's still real. And I have been tracking my new laptop and it is due to arrive today...maybe this morning!!!! So excited. No more fighting off the boys to get on-line. They are obsessesed with Warcraft, and I mean all of the boys, big one included. I shall hide away with my laptop and swat their little hands away from it. Yes I will.
