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.

Sunday Snippets

Rebel seems to think my car is for sharing. She was not happy when I suggested otherwise. I think I was just un-invited to one of her two birthday dinners. The girl does give good attitude. I just wish she could re-direct it to her idiot BF, who had the gall to ask me to move my car so he could park his precious Mustang in my driveway. I said no. That was fun.

Marking is nearly done. I haven't decided if I will teach again next year. It's a lot of work, for not really enough money, but it is fun.

XSU was sick this week, and didn't get to the bank to drop some cash on Reb Junior in France. If he had told me I could
have topped up earlier than I did. She's in Paris this week. Then it will be three weeks and she's home pending volcanic ash clouds over Europe.

I seem to have developed an insatiable craving for sushi. Particularly salmon pizza sushi.
I've had it three times this week. That's right - every day since I've come home. Thank goodness all three times it was different people at the restaurant and so my fix is
not quite noticeable to any but me - so far.

Best Buy has a trade in your old tv for a new. They don't make it easy though. I have to get one monster tv, one small tv and a computer monitor into the store all at the same time AND buy my new tv that day. I need a friend with a truck to help me get the stuff over there. AND I need to get the research done and pick a tv. The consumer reports on tvs - plasma, LED, HD etc etc is all too much for my middle aged addled non techie brain. I might just go in and blind fold myself and say I pick YOU! as long as you're under $1300.00 because I will also need the blu ray player, the brackets for the wall mount and the sound system too.

I learned why I can't start an annulment until after the divorce. The church wants to ensure all the "legal" stuff is done. They don't want to hand out annulments only to find out that legally people are still married. So the deal is - get the legal stuff out of the way then we can talk, because in the secular world legal is what counts on paper. Makes sense. Though I am not in a big rush deal to get the divorce thing done. I have decided to let the XSU handle that one. Let him pay for it and hand me over the paperwork to sign.

While at home the girls went out for dinner and we're thinking of handing out west to BC to visit yet another one of our girls. We spent our 40th birthdays together and had such a great time on Salt Spring Island we want to do it again. We may get together this summer or perhaps in early Fall.

Our high school is having a big 50 aniversary party next year and we're talking about that too. Time to get in shape for that. I was very surprised while visiting my brother and sister in law to learn that my SIL has had "work" done. Nothing big... but those needles that fill the lines in your face and a little botox for the frown lines. While I HATE needles she nearly had me convinced to head right over. But I have to deal with my tooth first. Bone graft for the implant on one, and then perhaps I can think about plumping up the cheeks. Being a cougar is gonna take some work and even more money!

It ain't easy being cheesy

oh wait, that is Chester Cheetah not a cougar

had to laugh at bf having to park in the street. sucks to be him.

and little miss rebel can just share cars with her bf since that is the whole point of living a life together. She's out of HS, your job is technically done. Go talk to your father, go talk to your bf. It's your problem and MY car. bwahahahaa

can you tell I don't have much sympathy for daughters these days? :-P

Attitude. I do not miss attitude. And yes, she does indeed need to redirect. It was the BF who got rid of the car she was using. That is ALL him.

What? You surely didn't actually expect him to tell you that he wasn't able to get something done. That would require that he work WITH you. WoW! Only three more weeks. I hope you have enjoyed your relative peace and quiet. Or at least be doing what you can for the next three weeks anyways.

Sushi. No. I prefer my fish cooked, thanks. That being said; if you know what you like you should eat it without care to what someone else might whisper as they see you in the shop for the 3rd time in a week. tee hee!

Aw. If we lived closer the kid would be over there helping you schlep the old things over and getting the new one home. He's a good young man.

Have fun doing that cougar thing!

love and hugs,

Right ON Rudy,

Rebel can deal with BF in an adult fashion that one has when one lives together..sharing, rent, cars, love, repect for parents...oh, sorry I I take it he's a bad smell. GAH

No, No, No to any injections of gorp or otherwise toxic substances, whether it be crystal meth or Botox...are you mad woman???
