Listening to: Simple Plan - Perfect
First of all:
Happy Bday to Gma who turned 83 yesterday!
Interestingly enough the date is 11-12-13.
Went to Daniels Orch concert at Weber on Sun and listened to the Nutcracker songs. A straight 1.5 hours of music. It was like a movie, but just music. Nevertheless some of us got bored or didn't want to sit that long. I liked it. It got me excited for Christmas. I was amazed they could play that long and that fast. They juss kept going and going. A lot of notes. Man oh man.
The director threw his baton once and it looked like his cumberbun fell off his waist and down his pants and he stepped out of it and kicked it onto the podium. Interesting fellow from Spain. The other director guy was like angry and yelling at any noise in the auditorium. This Spain guy is like professional and used to ppl who could play it perfectly the first time and so it was different for him to come to college level...
My gas cap broke off the string yesterday. Now I suppose its the cars turn to break down?
The boss this morning started this rant as soon as I walked in the door. "Do you know when you push the do not disturb button on the phone that it doesn't ring and I had an important call with the court this morning and I think I missed it." *blink blink* At some point he mentioned that he can't hear the phone ring from his office. Wait, I thought you just said it didn't ring at all when the button is pushed. He's been here in the morning before me before and had to answer court calls and he's managed to get them, what's his handicap now? Why he blaming me? "They tried to get to my voicemail and I was running in here to get the phone" Why was he running into my office when he could pick it up in his office?
Then he concludes his frustration and blaming skills with "I called the other attorney and he said he hadnt gotten a call from the court yet" And it was like a big scoff moment for me. See, fixed, so why you yelling at me? You juss felt like yelling at me about yer difficulties, which were nothing new to you and nothing I could do, just cuz you could huh? The problem is fixed and you haven't missed the phone call, you just needed to blame someone for your slight handicaps? Okay. Whatever. And then he picks up the phone on the first ring the next time it rings like he doesn't think I'd pick it up. Oy vay. I didn't say a word. He just went on and on and didn't give me a chance to say anything. Just smile and nod. I won't even point out the fact that his problem is fixed, he obviously hasn't missed the phone call by his own verbal conclusion.
Apparently my Mom seems to have some case of narcolepsy. She came over to my house, yeah thats right, all the way to my house that has no babies for her to see me. Well, I can't exactly say to see me specifically. Apparently my new fridge was more interesting than me. Whatever. She came and laid on my bed and we were talking and she fell asleep in mid sentence. It was slightly awesome to witness. She said, "The babies were so sick on Friday...." and she stopped and then she started doing those twitches you do when you are falling asleep. And she was gone! Seriously. I've never see anyone but children do that while eating or crying or something. And then I supposed to let her drive to Gmas after that. I'm not so sure about this womans health anymore....
Well, before Mom starting falling asleep in mid-sentence she was telling me that Dad was sick and tired of the family he let come live with them and was kicking them out of the house currently, like that night I guess. He came home to take a nap and ended up hauling their stuff out of the house. Interesting. I am really curious to see how that went, if it actually worked. Dad doesn't get mad and make a decision without caving in usually. He went on and on about his sympathy for them and her crying and their misery, but I bet after a month or so of their behavior he doesn't have anymore sympathy left for them. He doesn't strong arm people and win most of the time, the last time I saw him strong arm and actually make a decision and only went through with it cuz he was mad was when Dustin was around. I mean, he does that to Mom all the time, which is how they got into that situation in the first place. But when he's mad and makes a decision and is somewhat determined to go through with it, its something to see.
So maybe I'll feel comfortable coming to Thanksgiving at their house this year if they actually successfully get rid of them. And then my house currently. Natalies family is getting sick with viruses and bacterial infections. Great, just great. Mitchell is as violent as ever. The baby is sick with the virus and needs constant attention and holding or she cries. Arthur comes up with allergies and a claimed 'broken foot' he walks on. Natalies got the bacterial diseases, we won't go into detail. Sigh. I can handle this week, but not another week. I'm ready to put up a Christmas tree.
Monday, yesterday, I was looking at my bills and trying to figger out what to pay and when I slowly realized I couldn't really pay my bills. This doesn't usually happen to me. I thought it was weird. I mean I know the fridge was unexpected and would put me back a few hundred, but I can usually pay my credit card bill, I have this planned out in advance all the time. So as I sitting there contemplating my money I decided to double check my next pay period. Meanwhile, in the office the boss says outloud "Did we miss a pay period last friday?" We both look it up and sure enough we didn't pay ourselves last Friday. No wonder I can't pay the bills! It was Fridays check that was designated to pay my credit card bill and the unexpected fridge expense.
We prolly wouldn't have noticed for awhile if it wasn't for his wife, who is also on payroll, who emailed the boss and complained "Why didn't I get paid on Friday? I'm broke!" I guess I was on the way to checking that out at the exact same time the boss was thinking about it. Weird.
And as for the boy, he has fallen into a little depression of locking himself in his room for days and doing nothing but playing games and surfing the web and watching Netflix. I'm sure what to do to uplift the kid. I'm not really sure its my responsibility to uplift him and make him happy. Its his choice and I can do whatever I want and put all this effort into it, but in the end its his decision and he has a pattern of choosing to be sad no matter what and catastrophize. Its only been one week with no job and he's already gone this far.... If he is jobless for months we are all going to go nuts or we'll never see him again and he'll be a permanent attachment to his bed.
We were in that weird friends-without-any-obligation type friendship before and he was just rude during that period and now its like 10 times worse cuz money is apparently involved in everything we do. He didn't treat me like a friend, a good friend, he was so focused on himself. When we go out to eat, he doesn't care about my opinions anymore, he wants what he wants and he isn't paying for me and he has no obligation to listen to me anymore, yadda yadda. Theres diff between friends and ...good friends. But now he doesn't even feel the obligation to actually drive to a friends house anymore cuz it takes gas = money. But yet, somehow when it comes to food he finds a way to eat everyone elses food so he doesn't have to spend money or he'll go to activities if someone will drive him or whatever. So if I want to hang out with him I should expect him to eat my food and use my gas. Oy vay. I'm so glad I dont live with him anymore.
