Friday Flip off’s 8/19/11

To follow up on yesterday's post.. Actually.. it is the stove.

My stove is still broken...  I came home last night to a ticking stove. (like when you're just lighting a gas stove.. tick tick tick...)


No clue what the problem is.  I didn’t cook anything yesterday morning.. God only knows how long it was ticking for too since I was gone all day too, so I unplugged it and called my LL’s son.. Who didn’t call me back until this morning (he didn’t recognize the # so I’ll let it go this time).  He said he was going to make a phone call.. I’m still waiting to hear back from him.

I’m supposed to cook something to bring to my cousin’s party tomorrow.. So far, this ain’t happening.  This has been all.damn.week.

So.. Flip off you stupid stove for being a POS

My bestie, she’s leaving today.. Back to Mozambique (really, not everyone gets to say that, so in theory it’s cool, but Damn!) I won’t see her, in the flesh until next summer :(  but in between I’m thankful for Skype.  I didn’t spend nearly as much time with her as I hoped. But I’m still thankful for the time we did get to spend while she was “on vacation back home” My kid tries to put things in perspective for me “well mom, it’s not like you’re NEVER going to see her again.. She will be back next year and you have skype” He just doesn’t get it.  But I do admire him for trying to soothe my craziness.

I had to make a Target run before work this morning.. My cousin is having a 1st birthday party for her son tomorrow and in the craziness that’s been my life I hadn’t gotten him a gift yet... Now, I love target first thing in the morning because I love shopping when there’s nobody else there, I was in and out in 10 minutes but the jackass that decided it would be a good idea to repaint the lines on the highway the normally 5 minute drive back to my office from target took me almost 15 minutes.  I walked into my office at 9:00 on the dot.

The rain.. this crazy ass wicked lightning filled storm that came around last night scared the freaking Hell out of me... Thunderstorms I can deal with.. I actually like them and find them soothing.  But this storm that hit last night was pretty scary.. and as I'm looking out the window now it looks like we're in for more today.  yay  I'm fine with it.. but just as long as the bestie & her son get to Newark ok I'll be alright Less crazed stressed.  yeah.. a little less stressed.. at least until her plane lands in Portugal (for 4 days) then on to Mozambique.
