Jobless in this Economy.

So I have been laid off from my job. I'm kinda bummed because the pay check will be missed, but on the other hand I'm kind of excited to stay home with Munchkin and Dog. I have never really be able to stay home with Munchkin so I'm kind of excited. I don't know for how long I will be able to do this. But for the time that I can I'm going to enjoy every minute of it.

I'm trying to stay positive, if not than I will go insane.

Does anyone have any money saving idea's ? I'm really new to this unemployment thing. Cost cutting etc. Please feel free to post.

I hit a parked car, with the owner in it.

OK #1 I was not drinking or on my cell phone.

So I ran to Stop and Shop on lunch yesterday to grab something to eat. I was trying to pull into a parking space with my SUV and the car on my drivers side was parked on the line. So I back it up and pull forward I look to my right and I'm pretty sure I have that car cleared. I am looking on the left to make sure I clear the left front bumper. All of a sudden I hear scraaaatch and a small bang. "WTF ???? Shit" I look and yes I've hit the car on the right hand side instead.
The guy sitting in the car is like "what the fuck lady" (did I mention that the owner was sitting in the car, yup he was) So I get out of my car and I try to explain.

Me: Wow I'm wicked sorry, I thought I was clear on that side, I was watching the other side.
Pissed Guy in Station Wagon: Whatever, do you want to switch information
Me: Ummm OK
I drag out my info and hand it to him, her gives me his, I apologize again...
Pissed Guy in Station Wagon: Whatever, that's why they call them accidents. Hey you have commerce insurance too.
Me: Ummmm no I don't, I have Safety Insurance now, I have not gotten a new registration yet. Pissed Guy in Station Wagon: Looks at me even more pissed (thinking to himself "this lady is driving an unregistered un inssured car and hit me").
Me: Don't worry, I have insurance and my car is registered. (thinking to myself I fucking better)

I'm getting back into my car to leave, and he comes over to my car. Should I get your license number .... sure I grab my wallet its not there, fuck, fuck fuck ... I left it sitting on my desk with my credit card after I purchased something on-line.

Me: Ummm I don't have my license, its sitting on my desk at work.
Pissed Guy in Station Wagon: Look of death ... ( "what is fucking wrong with this lady")
Me: I have a license, its at work if you need the number call me. (this day sucks)

Damage done: My car: front bumper we traded a some paint and I have some big scratches.
His Car: front right quarter panel, big scratches, traded some paint and a dent. oops

This guy must have thought I was a total fricken loser.

Note- I do have insurance and I do have a license. I am pretty sure he is going to file a claim, he was kind of a dick for the amount of damage that I did. There was damage, but mostly cosmetic except for the dent.

My Hubby will never let me live it down.

Caught doing the deed.

This might be a little TMI but it was really funny.
Sunday, Mama went out for a bit and had a few cocktails and came home feeling a little frisky.
In the loudest whisper possible I wake up Hubby psssst "wanna fool around, (giggle giggle) meet you in the living room".
Now if you don't know me than you have no idea that, Munchkin and Dog spend most of there nights sprawled out in my king sized bed. So my love den has to be the living room floor, not that I even care at this point.

So we are fooling around like high schoolers on the living room floor. When we hear the pitter patter of little feet, "shit, she's coming and I think she's bringing the dog".

So we grab for the blankets and she comes in, "Mommy why don't you have a shirt on ?" "Ummmm I was hot , come on let's get you back to bed" I wrap a blanket around me and put her back to bed.
And meet Hubby back in the livingroom.

Is 3 the New Terrible 2 ?

So think I 've heard that 3 is the new terrible 2. I am starting to believe that.. Munchkin can turn me into a screaming crazy lunatic in No time flat.

Saturday we are up nice and early, we are going to go to breakfast before Disney on Ice so we don't have to re-mortgage the house to buy food.

I start trying to get her dressed around 7:30 .... she is having no part of this. I get myself into the shower (usually she follows me into the shower) not today.
8:00 am she is still not dressed and I think she playing in the living room. I call her repeatedly, I start the count down if you don't get in here before I get to 3 we aren't going. I show her the outfit (brown dress with red hearts and cute red footless tights)
She doesn't want to wear that, she doesn't want to wear anything (she is enjoying being naked lately). I start trying to get her dressed she throws a mental fit screaming and crying (like I'm killing her) She kicks me and I lose it.... I start ranting like a crazy person (I may have dropped an F bomb or 2) and I walk away from her. Its now about 8:45 and I've had it.

I called my mommy to see if this was normal behavior . Apparently it is, she told me "to get used to it because she is going to act like this till she moves out". Thanks Mom

How much longer till she moves out ?

Bento #6

These are the same lunches, green beans, green container ranch dressing for dipping, Annie's bunny crackers, jalapeno shaped cheese, a kitty shaped PB & J, grapes, mini oreos, and a cereal bar.

They kept her....

I cannot believe Bat Shit Crazy Tatiana made it to the top 36. She can sing, I will give her that.
Jesus Christ now I have to go and vote her off ....

They did keep a lot of good people though :O)

This is all I have to say about this matter ....

American Idiot ... I mean Idol

So there isn't any talk around the water cooler where I work.
So don't really have anyone to talk to about Idol last night so I'm going to blog.

Why the hell did they keep that crazy biotch Tatiana.... OMG ! She had waaaaaaaay toooooo many awful runs while singing "I'm your baby tonight". Munchkin wanted to know why I was yelling at the T.V last night, "because sweetie this woman is bat shit crazy and the judges have just moved her on". WTF
You know they were second guessing themselves when they went in to the room, and was she begging and being all annoying. I hope she doesn't make much further, I would hate to have to vote her off (but I will). Another annoyance is Norman the weirdo can really sing but seriously I want to punch him in the face for that get up and how he acts !
He is getting on my last nerve too .... Just sing and look normal you fricken idot!

I have my favorites but I'm not getting attached till after next week .....

Jordan's Furniture

Hold on , I am going to blow a gasket. I will never buy another thing from Jordan's Furniture.

I bought a sectional couch from Jordan's in the summer of 05 by the time Thanksgiving of 05 came around. The couch was falling apart cushions were ripping, the rip cord for my armless recliner was fraying. I called Jordan's and they offered to replace my couch with a new one free of charge. We went in spoke with the sales person, we explained what we needed something durable we had and infant and a dog. The sales person suggested leather but it would not be an even exchange, the leather couch was about $1,000 more than the couch we already had. (which BTW was $2100.00.)
Plus I am not a huge fan of leather couches. So I asked for the next best durable thing, Microfiber.
Sold to the cranky lady with the infant strapped to her chest. So we order a new couch and it won't be in till January. Fine
So we go to the counter to fill out papaer work and BTW my new couch free of charge now is costing me an extra $300.00. Whatever I pay and and we go on our merry way.
Couch is delivered 8 weeks later and its fine life is normal in our house.

Now less than 1 year later we are having problems again (with the new couch), the cusions are falling apart at the seams, one of the sections won't stay together and the rip cord is fraying. Are you Fing kidding me. So we have a teach come out and assess the damamges and they order new cusion covers, fixes the section that won't stay together, and the stupid rip cord. The new cusion covers are supposed to come in about 4 weeks . 2 months later cusion covers are still not in and we have to re-order it will be another 4-6 weeks for covers. Finally after about 4 months and a few phone calls, the cusions finally come in.

Now we have my newest problem, the Fing rip cord on my armless chair ripped right out. Ummm we don't abuse the furniture although, that chair does get used a lot (its my chair), the couch is only 2 years old and the rip cord is only 1 year old. ( I work 5 days a week 8 -9 hours a day, I come home cook and clean up. How much do you think I actually get to sit down in it?)
Seriously WTF
I call again, and schedule an appointment the guy comes and says that he has to get the part. I have to call and make another appointment to have it installed. I make a new appointment (for today) I have my father in law waiting at the house from 9-12 to greet the rat bastard. Lo and behold the couch is still not fixed he didn't have the part. Seriously are you fing kidding me. Now I have to call make another appointment and have someone wait at my house till they get there again.

I wouldn't buy a stick of gum from Barry and what ever the long haired hippies names are ever again.
Sorry but I'm going to lose my fing mind on the next service rep that answers the phone....
