Ranting Frenzy

*edit* I’m Site of the Month at Aneesah’s site! Thank you so much hun!

Due to my feeling crapalicious the past two days I completely forgot to thank everyone who voted for my bears at the Quilting Bee’s Dress the Honeybear contest. My Pixy bear was a Club Favorite and received 19 votes. Thank you very, very much to all who voted! .

Now, for my rants….

I loathe how over $50 million dollars was spent on Bush’s stupid inauguration. I guess he’s making up for the last election, where they threw eggs at his car and all. That money could have gone to something else. Something more important than a stupid ball and popular bands. I feel sick at the thought. Lloyd Garver from CBS news wrote an article entitled ‘Dear Mr. President’ and I couldn’t agree more with what he said. Argh, I’ll leave this at that, for I feel my blood pressure rising just thinking of it .

I’ve been checking my stats, since I haven’t done that in a while, and have noticed loads of people who aren’t part of the Nostalgic Sparkles Clique posting codes from the clique on their site. I appreciate that they’re even linking back to the clique, but the point is to JOIN and not just paste the code on their site as an adoption. It even says on the code page itself: “These are not for use on personal sites, graphic shrines, blinkie collections, etc. These are for my clique and members clique pages only.”

And while I’m on the subject of cliques, I find it not only hilarious, but absolutely disrespectful when someone steals pages from my site and then has the audacity to submit their site to my cliques. This hadn’t happened in a while, but while going through Lil’ Mama Clique submissions I found someone who did. It just boggles my mind how people can be so dense. Did they think I wouldn’t notice?!

Also, I hate how pixiehost is still having problems with my billing. They sent about 12 different e-mails trying to withdraw the money and it didn’t work. My CC shows no new transactions. They added a new “send payment” feature, finally, but I’m afraid if I send it that they’ll keep taking money out if they ever get the billing thing to work. All I know is, I need to send that payment. The last thing I need is for them to shut down my site again. Hisss.

I hate how I have my Popples in a pile on top of a dresser when I can have them on that empty shelf in the bedroom. The kids had been using it for their toys but no longer use their top bunk and can’t reach up there, so they took everything down and just put them in a Rubbermaid tote. I need to organize my new Rainbow Brite stuff and there’s just no space.

I hate now we haven’t gotten the frame and boxspring for the twin bed from storage and taken down that massive, horrible bunk bed. I hate looking around here and feeling claustrophobic. There isn’t space for ANYTHING! My desk is a mess, the table is a mess. Grr. Damn not having enough money to do/fix what we need to!

Okay, *breathes* I think that’s all I need to get off my chest. That helped a little .

Day 9 – Feelin’ Blah

I totally messed up my meals today. Slept with the fan on (on medium setting even) and woke up with a sore throat . Mario did too. After getting the boys ready in the morning and dropping Eenan off at school, I laid down to take a nap. Mom called at 9 and we spoke till almost 10. Mario woke up then and came to lay with Jaylen an I on the futon in the living room. He got up a while later and Jaylen and I stayed there, sleeping. Mario came in at around 11:40 and said he’d made breaded fish filets and if I wanted a sandwich. I said yeah and groggily made my way to the mom-in-law’s, since that’s where he’d been preparing the food so he wouldn’t wake us…. So I ate the fish sandwich and then my throat felt worse. I stayed up and cleaned a bit after that while Mario was at work trying to get the extra TV we have installed in the car. It didn’t end up fitting, so he came home. I went to pick Eenan up from school with Jaylen and felt like total crap the whole time we were parked. We got off to get Eenan when his class came out and I asked Ms. Ortiz how he did today. She said fine and told me how he was flirting in class, as always and was all happy when the little girls would button up his shirt. He got all dressed up for his picture day . I completely forgot to take a picture of him before he left to school this morning .

After helping Eenan with his homework and all of us having banana muffins Mario stole brought from work, I cuddled with Mario on the couch and we all watched the Ninja Turtles . I started dozing off, again, so I went to sleep in the bedroom. Jaylen followed me and fell asleep with me. Mario ended up falling asleep on the couch. When I woke up, I had an even worse headache and my throat felt worse too. And that’s because we’re taking Amoxicillin (sp?).

I felt really crappy, but made a simple dinner of Chalupas anyway. They were the best I’ve had in a long time, I’ve got to admit . I went inside to leave a chalupa for Mary and when I opened the fridge, a soda was just staring at me, begging me to take it with me. So I did . I hadn’t had a soda in over a week, but this headache’s just killing me so I thought I’d have just a little bit. God, I make it sound like I’m on crack. But really, I’ve had a headache EVERY SINGLE DAY since I haven’t had a soda. Or my morning coffee. I also read another e-mail foward about Aspertame and how it can make people sick, so I’m having second thoughts about drinking my Raspberry and Iced Tea Crystal Light on the go’s. I hate how everything can make you sick these days. (Hence the reason these headache’s have made me feel miserable–all I have is ALEVE!)

After dinner, we just chilled out and watched TV, read a few stories to the kids and Eenan went to bed, and then Mario and I (and Jaylen) watched the episodes we’d missed of Committed. I love that show!

Welp, gonna go before it gets any later. That, and I can feel Mario’s eyes burning holes in the back of my head. He’s waiting to get online buahahaha .
