There was a 1996 Mustang in my drive way this week. Now WHERE the hell did that come from I wondered? No doubt Rebel's BF had something to do with it. And where was the 2004 Impala that he "gave" her. This was gonna be good.
Didn't that idiot do a trade - the Impala for the Mustang. Well, so much for Rebel's car, given to her by her BF. phhhhht. gone! And what about the insurance for her that was tied to the Impala on my policy? I told Rebel it had to be canceled because insurance rates for her to drive a sports car would be through the roof because of her age. She was okay with this. And infact said she'd get on that ASP. For a 31 year old man, this guy really thinks like a 14 year old. He traded a newer car for an older one with no price change. UnBELIEVAble! But typical. And now he's driving around in a 14 yr old car that he says is "better" than a 4 yr old one. Okay.
I asked Rebel what the deal was and what about the fact that she no longer had a car. Some gift. She told me her dad was going to allow her to drive his old station wagon that he's replaced with a new Fusion. Good! ok. Whatever she is feeling about the BF giving away "her" car she isn't saying.
Not sure how all this will play out.
Rebel Junior sent me a note from France on what she is doing in school all day. Doodles on note paper. LOL She doesn't have to keep up with their work because she does have her own work, however she is finding it hard to understand what's going on in the classrooms - even the English class. That's okay. It's good for her to stretch herself. I am sure she is learning "something" just not sure what.
I am going h0me to visit my dad and brother and a few good friends right after Easter. I can't stay at my brother's house because of the family's two Siamese cats. I have allergies that cause no end of sneezing and itchy eyes around cats. So my dad set me up in a guest suite at "the home." I will be hanging out with a bunch of old folkscarpet bowling, and playing bingo and who knows what else! RJ suggested I hook up with someone and date while I am there. My sister in law tells me that my dad is the spry-est of the bunch there... so no date options. This time!
Lately, a whole bunch of high school and elementary friends have found me on Facebook. I've turned down two friend requests because even though a couple of them seem to know me, I cannot for the life of me remember them, so no friend connections. One of them is a RCMP cop so I am sure he'll get it.
Had drinks with a colleague from work last night. She is going through a separation from her second husband. He and XSU could be twins. He won't leave the house and doesn't want to separate until after next Christmas because he wants to stay in their house but can't afford it. I told her EFF that... sell the damn thing if he can't afford to pay you out now. She said her lawyer told her she couldn't do that. I told her to get a new lawyer. There oughtta be a club.
I am applying for two different jobs in my organization. One would be a promotion, one would be visibility. Both would be equally challenging and out of my comfort zone. I am thinking money over visibility is going to have to win. I will ponder further if I get interviews to discuss- but given how government interviews, I doubt it will hep much over my informal chats with others in the organization.
Oh and the Meez over there is in scrubs because this is the Telethon Sunday. Rebel and I will be live on tv answering phones for two hours. The hospital also has another profile of her. I had wanted to post it on my FB page, but A - she didn't want me to, and B it's in some fancy movie or video format that is not compatible and wouldn't upload. I have to take it some video production type place and have it transferred to the the right format - for a price. It's only about 3 minutes long so it wouldn't be a fortune. I might still, if I can get Rebel to change her mind.
Moving on .
I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.
