Holy cow, what a day.  I get so tired of asking Drew to do stuff over and over and over and over.  I feel like I am talking to myself... So frustrating.  The baby is sick today.  cold, runny nose, ear infection, not sleeping, what a tough day for him.

$1 a day.... I don't think so

Well Chris is doing much better on his meds.  We also joined a gym, so he is exercising regularly.  All in all, much better.  I think we still have a ways to go, but time will tell me what I need to know. 

So, I asked for another raise at work.....  We had already done this at contract negotiation time.  But when I got my paycheck, my raise only gave me $5 a WEEK in extra takehome pay.  I thought that that was crap.  So I asked for $50 a week takehome and we will see what happens.  When I told her about it being $1 a day, she was shocked.  She thought it would be much more than that.  I told her that I thought it would be much higher as well.  So I'm just going to sit back and see what they say.  But deep down... I know I am worth every bit of a $50 increase each week.

update and a dog

Okay, so I'm doing much better now.  I don't want to drag up all of the drama from the last week of my life, but here's the gist.  My husband has OCD and tourette's, and his meds were way off.  He was acting very strange, but we nipped it in the perverbial bud.  So now I am trying to enjoy the last two days of vacation that I have. 

My newscast just did a three minute spot on a dog that died.  It was the pet of the Chief Meteorologist (Gary) and was on TV with him all of the time.  Gary will be taking a few days off, which sucks b/c he is by far the most accurate meteorologist in town.  But it is sad that the dog died.  Poor Gary.

When I lived in a Pitt, I used to watch the news every night.  I would watch the weather and then go to sleep.  Well then they got a new sportscaster, and oh man was he hot.  So then I started watching the sports section also.  But I didn't care about the sports at all, so I muted the tv and just watched the hot sports guy.  Man I miss that news station......

Where did it go? I know it was here a minute ago.....
You know those times when you are hangin' out on the internet, just checking out all of the blogs that you check in on from time to time..... There are the blogs that you read daily, b/c they write daily.  And then there are the blogs that you check every couple of weeks, b/c that is how often they update.... (yeah, kind of like me, but I'm worse.)  Anyways, I was checking out a blog that I drop in on and........(cue dramatic music) dun, dun, dun......it was gone.  GASP!  This has happened to me before, and it sucks.  I feel like I get to know someone a little, and then the page is gone.  No explanation, no goodbye, no forwarding address, just a "cannot find server" message.  What a crock.

contracts

So contract negotiations are on Thursday.  I'm going out to dinner with my boss for a review and negotiations.  I'm so pumped.  They never low-ball me on overtime pay or anything else really, but I'm still nervous about my raise.  I'm cutting back my hours from 51 hours to 47-48ish.  Not a dramatic cut, but it's all evening hours, so I will actually SEE my husband.  I've heard that this is a good thing.

work contracts

Holy bejeepers.  It's been FOREVER since I have written last.  I missed a month.  A MONTH!!!  How is that even possible.  Work has been very busy, but still. 

It's time to renew my contract at work.  I am cutting my hours to 45 base, plus overtime.  I'm looking forward to seeing what they offer for the new year.  I would like them to start paying for my cell phone, because I use it for them ALL the time.  I had to switch to a free incoming plan because my boss would always call my cell phone even when I was at their house.  That is fine, but it would be nice if they would cover it.  We are going on a trip next week, so I'm guessing we will negotiate after we get back.

scattered thoughts
Well, pink eye is done, and we are starting Drew with the potty training experience.  He is really doing very well.  He's such a smart little boy.  ~Of course I'm not biased at all!~  This week is going to be very short for me.   I'm only working Tuesday, Wed, Thurs, and 1/2 of Friday.  It will be great to have some time off.  We are heading out to San Diego for my sister-in-law's marathon for Leukemia and Lymphoma.  She is running 26.2 miles!!!!!!  Great googily moogily!  I get tired just thinking about it.  I'm a wimp though.  And it sucks to admit that.  I used to be so athletic, long and lean.  Now I'm just very tall and thinnish, but not the toned kick-ass body that I used to have.  I'm in the same size jeans that I was in at 20, but they don't fit the same.  And I definately don't look the same in a bathing suit.  I know I need to get moving and tone up, but darned if that doesn't take effort.  I've been relying on good genes and God's good graces so far, but I think that gravy train is about to be derailed.  Okay, enough of that.  No one wants to hear ANOTHER person bitch about their butt not being as perky as it used to be.  But in the right jeans..... I think it still looks damn good.
