Discovered just how STUPID I can be with 48 hrs of NO SLEEP.

Family of Origin lessons:
1.  I come by my obnoxious, tease people you don't know behaviour from MY AUNTS
2.  My dad will never get over my mother
3. My cousins don't see the alcohol issues in the family unless you POINT IT OUT... then the lightbulb goes on!
4.  Not all my cousins are hard to talk go
5.  Dancing with my Aunt Grace can be FUN
6.  It's good to know when to walk away
7.  My Aunt Jeannie has TACT but...agrees with me most of the time...
8.  People need CELL PHONES

Me stuff:
I miss the country.  Driving through the country was relaxing and awe-inspiring.  Abandoned farm houses, make me want to claim them and take love and laughter back inside them.  Rural yard sales ARE THE BEST.  Mudcats are a type of catfish, but really just an excuse to party.
I like vodka, cranberry & OJ.  I can sneak OUT the vodka and everybody thinks I'm still drinking!!  Don't go to weddings in the mood to find a booty call!!

Spent today at University Downs Neighbourhood Associations Party in the Park. Had a great time working with the book table.  Got too much sun.  Met the PERFECT man....  (no I didn't ask for his phone number!! and didn't offer mine)... I'd rather not find out I'm not his perfect woman!!!

I was away to Port Colbourne yesterday for a funeral. Good talks with my cousin, saw unexpected people, and quiet time with family.

Today I'm working from home. Going to delay my drive to TO as long as I can...and wait and see what this weather intends to do.

Getting tired of not sleeping and being restless at night. Doing lots of late night reading on topics....interesting and challenging...

Off to make calls for work and "fill" my dayplanner for NEXT week.
locus_ofcontro: (Work)

The new family is moved in....settling has begun.  There's likely to be a slight delay in interweb connectivity ...so expect some silence from the household.... I'm posting from work right now.

Yup work.  Still have a killer sore throat and a desire to curl into a ball and sleep, but I'm at work.  Thank ghods for Ibuprofen and Tylenol.  WHY you ask?  Cause my supervisor guilted me on Wed!!!  And now I'm here.  Trying to find a kid on my caseload who appears to be AWOL and a 14 yr old girl from a file I closed (in the summertime) who also appears to be AWOL..... Will be attending with Police on that one this afternoon.....

This weekend, I'm headed first to my mom's to deliver my kidlet for a visit, than off to Belleville for a visit with 

[profile] shadoridr ....to help read some paperwork he's dealing with, and generally get some F2F time...then collect kidlet and go home..

Sunday evening will see the first of the "household" meetings.

Mon & Tues see me in Brantford for Forensics Training, and catching up with clients in the evenings (yup..planning on doing some O/T to catch up from this hell-cold) ... so I don't in trouble in Supervision on Wednesday.

I'm tired of being tired, and sore... and behind at work.  Have to find time for some blood work to be done (FULL WORK UP ordered...it's been a while...)  Looking forward to these meds actually resolving the sore throat so that it's GONE.  I'm alternating between Hot and Cold stuffs to keep me going.

gah....time to head out.

My head is BUSY...I must find writing time.

Purple lollypops make you run faster.

Almost 4 hours to get there, just over 1 hr to get home.

My dad is a cantakerous drunk.

My cousins spouses are pretty cool, so are most of my cousins.

Rain, is just rain.

Driving during an anxiety attack....sucks...

K asks 20 questions to keep from falling asleep.

4 pools, in 1 day = exhaustion

GIGGLES in the morning.

Capturing The Thrill
Do What Excites You

Each human life has the potential to be dramatic, thrilling, and awe-inspiring. Our lives are, in truth, ours to design. Each day, we make choices that influence the character of our experiences, and our decisions determine whether our paths are rousing or tedious, breathtaking or tiresome. We can create an exciting life by simply doing what excites us whenever the opportunity presents itself. Your passions may ebb and flow, and what excites you one year may not excite you the next, but when you make excitement a regular part of your existence, life becomes more fun and more fulfilling.

If you are somebody that tends to live practically, excitement may overwhelm you at first. To ease the anxiety that prevents you from incorporating all that you find exciting into your life, acknowledge that you are alive right now in this time and every moment matters. When you choose to do more of what excites you, even if your choices requires you to make certain sacrifices, your daily life will soon be imbued with exhilaration, pleasure, and optimistic anticipation.

To understand what excites you, you may need to observe and ponder your reaction to the activities, events, circumstances, and concepts that make up your life. What makes your pulse race, what makes you want to get out of your chair and take action? Try to avoid getting too wrapped up in life’s details; their tedium may cause you to plod through your existence unaware of prospective excitement. Once you have created a substantial list of what excites you, find ways to integrate each item into your routine. You will soon find yourself riding a wave of excitement that lifts you up and makes life truly worth living. What excites you in your life?

A quickie

2. Laundry
3. General tidy
4. Groceries & start dinner
5. Take computer components to chez [livejournal.com profile] gracyelala

Ok so I guess I'm not doing so bad...

Meanwhile, I've also read book 4 of "The Walking Dead", added a new friend to my chat list, and looked long and hard at my doll house. A story about the doll house..

When I was (13 maybe) young, my mother ordered a dollhouse from Sears catalogue for me for Christmas, but it was made of cardboard. She and my step-father took the pattern and cut out the house from wood. They decorated the house, my grandmother made the fixtures for the bathroom from ceramics, my grandfather made bits and pieces of the furniture. Over the years, I have recieved more furniture and miniature pieces for the dollhouse and it's been stuck in storage.

It's now in my daughters room. She enjoys pulling the pieces out and playing with the dollhouse. I reviewed some of those pieces today.. .The flooring needs to be replaced, the wall paper has fallen off and the furniture needs to be repaired. It's going to be a project. I have small clamps and good wood glue. Someday, I'd like to add electricity so the lights can be turned on. It's not a well -made dollhouse but it was made with love and caring that no other gift I have recieved over the years was.

My grandparents are still alive, and there are pictures in albums of that christmas morning. My step-father has been dead now for several years but when I look at the house, I don't see the flaws in the structure or the work needed. I see the love in the actions that motivated my family to band together and make something for me. My family, that spends so much of their time splintered, and at odds, worked together on that piece.

It's funny, I know for [livejournal.com profile] zagatto, what he sees is the amateurish construction, his dad is a woodworker after all, but me, all I see is peace.

Feel free to join us and see the 4yr old devour Udon noodles!!
