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.

Ever have one of these days?

Work most of the day was all right. Just as I was up to full staff though two people went down again. That I’m used to. It’s the home front stuff that makes me crazy.

Arrived home from work last night and every kitchen cupboard door was open. The patio door wasn’t locked, the tv was on in the basement and RJ was nowhere to be found.

I tried to use the telephone to call a friend and let her know I’d be late to see Midsummer’s Night Dream at the park and damn Rogers home phone… NOT WORKING. Neither was the internet Forty minutes later – no resolution and chances of either being fixed before FRIDAY was unlikely. No no no I told them that was unacceptable service. I was told I’d get a phone call first thing Tuesday morning. I missed my window to get out of the house and to the park where the play was on – a 40 minute ride away. Couldn’t call my friend because even though she has a cell phone she never uses it so it’s rarely turned on.

By 11:30 am today Tuesday, still no call from Rogers so I had to call back and yet again go through the routine, name, address, postal code, mother’s maiden name, blah blah repeat the story , check your file, and finally - an appointment during the proverbial noon and 7 PM time slot on Wednesday.

In the meantime I guess I will hit the library for my Facebook fix and whatever else I need the webs for this evening.

I took Bell’s name in vain. I think I am going to switch my home phone back to Bell. I am paying a whack of money a month and no service is making me a tad cranky. On the upside I finished reading a book that has been sitting by the bedside because I’ve been wasting time online.

So I am breaking my wine habit, now I am forced to break my internet habit, and maybe that’s all a good thing. Perhaps I will actually read another book this evening since the library closes at 8:30 and my internet fix will have to be done.

A story for another day. How I caught RJ in a lie when she told me she was going to a friend’s house, didn’t want me to drive her and I lay in waiting at her father’s house and was not disappointed. When I called XSU and told him RJ was in the house against his wishes his response “what am I supposed to do about that?” Seriously dude. Put your daddy hat on !

SU is full of fail. What is he supposed to do about that? Oh dear lord. I can only roll my eyes in disgust.

I hope you get your interwebs and phoned fixed soon.

I thought I responded to this but now that I think about it I made some comments via email. LOL! Not very helpful for the bloggy though, eh?

love ya!

Hold it, you lost me at you're taking a wine break!

Seriously, where was RJ and why did she leave the house in such a state??? and why was she going to SU's??? And why is she not in N.S.?? I'm going to re-read all of this....

as much as Bell is a PITA, it is better than Rogers....

LOL I am taking naproxen and it states clearly on the bottle 'do NOT consume alcohol while taking this medication." The pharmacist told me it is harsh and the drub in combination with any amount of alcohol could rip a whole in my stomach!

RJ was in summer school Lily. That's done now, she got a 90 % in the photography course that she took, and is now hanging out out until I put her on a plane to NS for 10 days. She's driving back with XSU. She told me she was going to a friend's over night but was sufficiently vague that I knew something was up. I caught her red handed!
