Sorry…

It has been forever again since I have posted.  I have thinking about just stopping with all this blogging thinig, but then I remember that my Mom and Dad read this (waving at them) …
I have been fighting depression that has been brought on by the fact that we had some serious money issues in May.  It was very unexpected and I was thrown for a loop when it happened.  Things are looking up this month…which is good since I owe bills. 
The Ball was okay.  I was the only one in a Signal Orange dress and of course everyone noticed it.  Most of the women there were wearing pastels or black and here I am with a loud assed primary color.  The people in the receiving line thought that we were "the perfect Signal couple".  Whatever…I wanted to get the hell out of there.  I am going to be 37 next month and the age difference between me and the other wives was obvious.  Most were just a few years out of high school or just making 25…I really had nothing to talk about with them.  They were all asking me "how" I could wear such a color…It is really easy.  Just put the damned thing on…but I guess with age comes great confidence and basically I didn't give a rat's ass what anyone thought.  I loved the color on me.  Right now I am sporting banana cabana colored nails (shocking) but you know what…I like bright colors and they are my nails.  I have been getting comments about my hands and my feet since I put the color on.  Next week I will sport lime green.  I guess I am just saying…I am getting older and I am starting to notice how most people do things just because they are afraid of what others think.  I used to be that way…now I am just being me and that makes me happy…
Okay, just went off on a tangent there….:D
The Girl is in summer school.  At first she was resisting the idea (I am the Borg…resistance is futile.  She figured that out.) then she warmed up to going (like she had a choice).  My husband and I are taking turns getting her to class since both of us have the type of jobs that sometimes makes it impossible for us to get away.  The other day the child called me frantic because she was going to be late for the class.  Maybe she is learning something.  By the way…she is going on to the next grade.  She passed, but I still put her in the Math summer school so she will be ready for the 8th grade.
The Boy…well, he is being the Boy.  He is trying to be a thug and I am trying to beat it out of me.  I understand that teens have to find themselves…get into a groove so to speak.  But my son is really trying to find himself on the receiving end of an ass-whupping from me if he continues to rise up on me.  I don't tolerate yelling very good.  I have never liked it and I won't have it from my children.  He is turning 15 next month and that is really bothering me.  I remember bringing him home from the hospital.  (sigh)
I also remember telling my Mother when I turned 30 that I wanted another child.  I am so glad that I listened to her when she told me that I was "Out of my mind" and to remember how old the child will be compared to my age.  I would have a 7 year old right now…Lord have mercy.  😀  Thanks Ma for the advice and saving me from myself.

…work.  Work is going well, so well they want to send me to Sacramento for training. Me…on TDY?? Wow I am flattered, I am excited, I am so ready to go…BUT…


They are telling me that since I am NOT a frequent TDYer I cannot get a Government Travel Card, but I need a Card to purchase the tickets.  They are working on it as I am typing, but it looks like they are about to tell me out-of-pocket.  Um, no…unless they make me a Grade 9 or above I cannot afford to pay for all of this while they are trying to get me straightened out in the system.  It would be fun to go…I will have a room to myself and the biggest perk..,peace and quiet.  I need a break before my husband leaves for Iraq …again.
Posting from work right now since my children are teens and there seems to be no time on the computer.  They are either on the phone talking to friends or on the computer talking to friends.  I am considering the library so I can keep in touch with folks :D.  My cell phone is working again so I am set as far as communication is concerned.  The library is a perfect new home for me…
I have some work to do before I leave here.  I am also making a jambalaya from scratch (It is cheaper and I have all the ingredients in my house) for tonight, so I am leaving work early…
I will try to post more.  I like updating, but I don't have the time these days.
