Nice & Quiet

Both the girls are asleep and I’m relaxing for a bit. This has been one hell of a day! There was an extremely loud bell ringing at the fireworks place down the street from the time I woke up until about 1:30. My brother said it had been ringing since about 5 this morning. Just when I was about to get fed up with it and call the police (didn’t know who else to call), it stopped.

After that, Arien started getting cranky because she was sleepy. That girl just doesn’t like to sleep, and she fights it as hard as she can. Right after Arien finally gave it up, Gracie had her little accident and screamed bloody murder for about 20 minutes. I put her in my mom’s room and turned cartoons on for her, and she finally quit. Then she was convinced that she couldn’t walk because of the little scratch on her heel, and it took me forever to make her get up and walk. She walked to the bathroom and back and said, “You said it wouldn’t hurt and it doesn’t.” Well duh, I’m the mom and I know what I’m talking about. Maybe she’ll believe me next time.

I’m going to go take a nice long shower now. There’s nothing more relaxing than a hot shower, and I do mean hot. I have to have the water as hot as I can stand it, or I just don’t feel clean.

My Little Drama Queen

Somehow Gracie got her heel caught under the door a little bit ago, and she’s been screaming at the top of her lungs since then. She says that it doesn’t hurt, but she’s still screaming! I’m hoping she’ll scream herself to sleep, because I can’t think of any other way to get her to stop. She doesn’t want anyone to come near her, and I’ve tried everything to get her to sop.

Arien has been asleep the whole time she’s been screaming, but I don’t see how. I’m expecting her to wake up screaming any minute now. She’s got a cold and she’s been really cranky today too.

It’s 3:00

Why am I still awake? I’ve tried to go to sleep, but I just can’t and I know I’m going to pay for this tomorrow. It’s been a while since I haven’t been able to sleep, so I guess it’s about time for a bout with insomnia. Everyone else is asleep, and it’s kinda nice to be able to sit and enjoy the quiet, but there’s nothing to do. There’s nothing on tv but informercials, I’ve read all the books in the house, there’s no one to talk to, and I can’t clean because I might wake someone up.

Arien usually gets up around 6:30, so that’s what time I have to get up. That’s only 3 1/2 hours from now, so there’s not use in even going to sleep. If I only sleep for a couple of hours I’ll be more tired than if I don’t, so I guess I’d better go find something to keep me occupied.

12 Hours

I’ve had one cigarette in the past 12 hours. I couldn’t help it, I just had to have one. I didn’t buy it though, I bummed it off my mom. I don’t know if I’m going to be able to keep it up, though. I’ve eaten more today than I have in a long time, and I know it’s because I haven’t been smoking. If I keep that up, I’ll gain 500 lbs, and I can’t afford to gain anymore weight. I still haven’t lost any of the weight I gained when I was pregnant with Arien. I already look like the Pillsbury Dough Boy. If I keep gaining weight I’m going to look like the Michelin Man!

I’m Qutting

I bough a pack of cigarettes last night, smoked one, and went to sleep. When I woke up this morning, there were only 2 left in the pack. I can’t afford to buy cigarettes for everybody in this house, so I’m quitting. I’m probably going to be extra bitchy for the next few days, but I’ll try not to let it get too bad. Wish me luck!

Did I Do That?

I backed over my uncle’s explorer when I was leaving my Granny’s house. It didn’t do anything to it or to my car, but I still feel bad. Actually I feel more stupid than bad. That was just so embarassing. I’m usually such a good driver, but this time I misjudged the distance between the two vehicles. Maybe next time he’ll park somewhere other than behind me. There were plenty of places he could’ve parked instead of right there.

I got my dry dressing! You gotta love a woman who makes the same dish three different ways. She only makes the dressing to ways, but potato salad she makes three ways. The normal way – onions, pickles, eggs, etc. – for most of the family, no onions for my brother, and no eggs, no refrigerator for me. Potato salad just isn’t good after it’s been in the fridge. I think the cold takes away from the taste. Yes, I’m very picky.

I didn’t eat any dessert at dinner, I was too full, so I brought it home. I think I can probably hold some now. Pumpkin pie, here I come!
