Sunday, August 31, 2003Boy, I haven't posted here in ages. Things are so up and down in my life - it's amazing to me, I've tried to live my life without hurting anyone, I've tried to treat people as I want them to treat me, I've tried to be honest and upright. And still there are people who hate that I breathe. I don't understand them, and I've given up trying to. I refuse to give them the power to hurt me anymore.

Tuesday, November 26, 2002I have become a blog slacker. I feel quite bad about it, but half of the stuff going on in my life is definitely not for public consumption ~ no one would believe it anyway. Screaming matches with evil step sisters, one of whom demands a meeting to talk about "things" and when I ask what those things might be, she replies "JUST THINGS!" in an extremely snotty tone. Well, forgive the crap out of me for asking. Geez. And then I'm not supposed to think they're ganging up on me? When they all know what these THINGS are but I can't be told?
On a lighter note. I went to see not one, but two plays the other night. A high school Shakespeare festival was going on, so we got tickets to Julius Caesar, which I had never seen, and to As You Like It, which I had never read or seen. We sat nearly on the stage, it was wonderful, the kids did a great job and we had a wonderful time. Got home at about 11:30 and started downloading music for a CD, groups I'd never heard of with very odd names, but my great-niece was quite happy about it. We slept downstairs, she still can't bring herself to go up and I didn't want to leave her downstairs alone. I ended up on the floor, I couldn't sleep well in the recliner, I think I just spent too many nights there and the memories are too fresh. Otherwise, it was a really nice visit, we looked at old pictures and giggled and had a few tears and a lot of laughs.
The next day was horrid. My eldest sister is tossing up roadblocks and demanding that things be done her way and refusing to tell me what she's so upset about and then she had the nerve to tell me she was worried about me. Hunh? She hasn't done anything but express her disapproval since I was a teenager and I'm supposed to believe in this sudden concern? I think not. Well, at least the police didn't have to be called ~ yet.
Tonight was my last class for the semester. WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I am done till January 13, when the stress will begin anew. i'm going to be catching up on my recreational reading and sorting out the house. So much to be done and so much trouble. But I reminded myself tonight ~ I am my mother's daughter, far more than my sisters know. And I will be fine.
Greggie, thank you for the poems. I know you didn't write them just for me, but they were exactly what I needed and I can't describe how much they meant to me. You know that I'm not a big fan of poetry ~ so when I say that these are truly beautiful, trust me, they are worth reading. Go, read them, love them, and tell the author how much you appreciate that he wrote them. The princess so orders. :-)

Thursday, November 21, 2002I have been given some extremely bad advice, some very good advice and some very hilarious advice in the past couple of days. It's amazing how many people know the law ~ who really know nothing at all. The good advice has come from someone I trust, the bad advice has come from the wicked stepsisters and the hilarious advice came from a good friend. Someone who has known me for a very long time, and knows how much I really hate confrontation and how easily I give in when someone expresses displeasure with me advised me to "find my inner bitch." While this may not be the best way to handle things, it has certainly made me laugh and given me the courage to stand up to them.
Along with a lot of pep talks from my bear. :-)
It's been a quiet night at work. The problem with this is that in an effort to avoid doing my tax homework I have been playing online and eating chocolates. My boss is so good to me, he keeps his desk filled with totally delicious chocolates ~ and I have no will power to resist right now. I shall have to ask for a raise so I can buy clothes that fit soon. Nah, the Princess will never again be a chubby cubbie. ;-) Been there, done that, have no need to go back.
I got registered, finally, for next semester. I think I've lost my mind, I'm taking 2 courses, one grad and one undergrad. Tuesday and Wednesday nights. I'm gonna be so stressed. Ah, hell, it can't be worse than this nonsense.

Wednesday, November 20, 2002I am cranky. After telling the stalker student that his constant praise made me very uncomfortable, and being quite nice about it, I might add, not only did he get defensive and make me MORE uncomfortable, the dumb richard emailed me tonight. I do not need this at all.
Then I decided to check the cute little counter thingie and see who's been reading this. Daily it seems someone hits me through my aol profile page. Daily. The same person. You would think by now they would have figured out that they could just click the little heart thingie and save it to favorites and do it in one step, now wouldn't you? Why does this annoy me, you ask? Stupidity always makes me cranky. And I did mention that I was cranky, didn't I?
So how do I handle the stalker? And what new piece of hell will I be faced with tomorrow? I was thinking about Christmas tonight. There's something I really am not ready to face. Maybe I can just take a nap that day.
