howdy my peeoples and peeple-ettes :)) how the hell have y'all been lately?
me? busy. very busy. if not busy, then i been recoverin from busy. some days - between the busy -- and the snow and ice storms --- pain and recoverin from pain has been number one on my agenda as well. that or trudging thru the damn pain. today is a pain day fo-shizzle. to the point of bein glued to the couch all morning. and looks like for the rest of this day as well. so far - since i had to replace my car, after soulkid wrecking it - on new years eve day -- she has not been allowed to drive the new one. i have done well in sticking to that rule. today? i was forced to give in. i was supposed to drive her to work and pick her up -- i saw no way of driving today even being close to a possibility - in my physical state -- so i offered to let her drive my car. of course she was thrilled -- me? ugh. that's the only word that comes to mind. she has been driving her dads truck since the accident - on occasion... but my car? not once, since the day i got it. whaaaa.
so-- if you aren't on face-book? some wonderful things have happened for-and with my child in the last few weeks. #1? she graduated high school! at the ripe old age of 16 ! before all of her friends... they were all shocked, and jealous. they all have the rest of the year - some a whole nuther year , before they graduate! she surprised us all :)) not only did she complete 2 years of high school in FOUR months- she did it with 'high honors' ! when that girl sets her mind to it -- she can do anything.
days after her graduation -- she was hired at her very first job -- :)) for part time -- she is packin in the hours- (5-7 hours a day!)- workin very hard. she is well liked by all - from coworkers to upper management!
i don't have a pic of her in her uniform yet -- but i don't think i need to tell you -- she is more than adorable in it !!! - i will get one up heah soon. but here's a hint --
no worries -- my soulkid is a GIRL - as most of you know. i said a hint - and thought this one was kinda fun. :))
she got a jeep - from us - for her grad present -- but it needed a lot more work - and parts than we were aware of -- and now - to ensure it to pass emissions - it needs a trip to a mechanic for a tune up--- which the bad weather -- mainly ice -- has pushed back til tomorrow -- but it will be road worthy by monday or tuesday -- registration and all.. it's already insured. but it will be a welcomed relief - for all three of us when that is done. and-- i was able to full coverage on it with a low deductible for less than 40 more a year --- than it would be for liability --- gotta say that's not much considering what it could cost if she needed to replace it in the first year. let's all hope that is NOT the case tho. i hope she has learned her lesson at being more careful at the wheel eh.
so -- do i sound proud of this girl or what? she has done a full 180 this passed few months. and i gotta tell ya -- this job is the best thing that has ever happened to her -- her habit of respect at work -- has carried over to home. i'm lovin that you know!
hmm... i was gonna tell ya 'bout my pain, and my - what i think to be a manic-spending spree -- but i shall spare ya the deets til next time :)) kinda nice of me huh? why turn a positive post into a cry baby post? which really wasn't gonna whine too awful much -- but ya never know -- once i get on a roll - ya never know what ya might get -- :))
so. things are actually goin pretty well overall around here. i sure hope y'all are doin well in your worlds too!?
tell me bout it eh-- wussup?
happy friday peeps!
