    Yeah. Technically he used it then kept it so I didn't use it afterwards or he would most def be on the street. Unfortunately he's my boyfriend's ex best friend (because of this ****) so my boyfriend isn't comfortable just booting him, but knows I'm not overreacting, either. He paid through the month so we were letting him stay, but now he's going to try to pull some bullshit because of the appendix thing, I know, and we're stuck watching his **** dog. By "we" there I mean my boyfriend, because I could care less about any of his crap.

    On a drink related note, I am frustrated that I cut my soda intake in half and replaced with a zero calorie flavored sparkling water, only to see the scale go up. I should probably try it straight for one week and see where I'm at.

    The drink is sucralose based which, upon research, seems to be one of the safer sweeteners. I did see a note that sucralose can cause weight gain but I wasn't sure if it was propaganda type stuff. I wish I knew what research is objective and unbiased.

    It's raining do hard here that I am sitting in my driveway unable to even open my car door to get myself and Joey out. If I open my door my entire interior will be soaked before I can get out of the car.

    This hockey game is terrible. TERRIBLE.

    Also blaahhhh work tomorrow. On Wednesdays I'm kind of like the 3rd wheel, I don't really have a designated position so I basically just fill in where it's needed when we're busy. Well at the moment we have like 4 appointments tomorrow afternoon sooo it looks like it won't be busy enough for me to do anything... as much as the money is nice, days like that make me wish they would cut my hours back to me getting off at 2pm instead of staying all day :( Looks like I'll be spending my day with a bucket full of soapy water cleaning things. What fun.

    Ok, so my first world problem of the day - I ordered a prescription for my daughter through the mail order pharmacy I'm required to use for "maintenance" medications in order to "save money". The order popped up with a high copay (which I expected) and I acknowledged it and said it was OK to order it. I get a phone call the other day asking me to call back so when I called this morning they said, "We cancelled the order because the copay was so high. Do you want us to order it for you?" My answer was a resounding "YES" because she is out of this medicine while you jerk me around in your order system.

    I hate it when people plan my days off for me. I have a day off today, an unexpected one. My next day off is at the end of June, possibly (possibly not even even then). I just want to do what I want to do today. I want to go for a walk, go work out, take pictures of my dogs, and make harnesses. That's all. I don't want to do your stupid plans that you make for me. I'm not cleaning up your yard. It rained all day yesterday and all night last night. I'M NOT WORKING IN YOUR YARD. I hate this. HATE IT. I want to cry because just once I want to have a day off and have it REALLY off and get to enjoy it.

    I keep flip flopping between cutting my father out of my life and trying to work it out.

    He's such a selfish asshole.

    But sometimes he'll say sorry and talk to me like I matter.

    And then he'll ruin it by making some mean, selfish, ridiculous comment.

    Ugh. I just wish he would grow up and stop using his 'disability' as a crutch. And stop acting like I am THE WORST DAUGHTER EVER.

    I'm not a bad person. I'm not a bad daughter.

    But telling yourself that only works for so long. Am I bad person/daughter? Or is just an ass?

    Nothing like your father questioning your sense of self....

    This cough and sore throat will not go away. I'm generally capable of ignoring sore throats, but this one is persistant and stabby. Throat looks fine, though, so I'm assuming no strep, etc. It was rent paycheck period, so I feel too poor to justify spending $45 at the doctor and then whatever on meds, so I need wait until the next pay period. Particularly since the lad his chaperoning the senior trip to Disneyland and other such theme parks and, while the trip is free for him, food and whatnot is not. So that's several days of eating out in California.

    Stupid germs:rolleyes: Yesterday I coughed so much that I threw up an apple:mad: (the gross things you learn)

    A good client of ours at work found a gorgeous, handsome black Chow/Samoyed mix and couldn't keep him, so she was looking to place him. He would have been PERFECT for Mike's mom. She's said off and on she's wanted another big spitzy dog, not only for companionship, but also for protection. Mike has been looking around for one that would be a good fit, to hopefully help her out with her mental issues. So I contacted Mike, who is down with his mom currently, to see if she would want this dog. It would have been an awesome match.
    But she doesn't want him. Which is really frustrating, because when she is in her good mental state she wants a dog, it is just when she is having issues with her depression she feels like she isn't worthy to even have a dog...and I really think this boy would have helped lift up her spirits and give her a happy thing to come home to in the evenings, and he would have done an awesome job of being a watchful, protective presence.

    *sigh* It is hard to help someone when they don't want to, or can't, help themselves.

    I tried making bacon-wrapped eggs in muffin tins...but they just sorta ended up grease balls. The bacon isn't completely done and the eggs might be overcooked.

    Sigh. Failure.

    Yeah, you need to either cook the bacon first most of the way or use some of the pre-cooked bacon. I only did it once but still found it to be SUPER greasy, the bacon was chewy and soft, and I didn't like it. Not enjoyable to eat. x_X
    Instead I just cook my bacon and chop it up into bacon bits. Mine are layered - cooked crumbled sausage at the bottom, bacon bits on top of that, cheese on top of that, then an egg on top. I also like to crack my eggs into a bowl and stir them all together instead of just straight cracking the egg.



    The air conditioning is on in the office and the fans are all on so high papers are flapping around and I can HEAR the fans spinning. I'm f***ing FREEZING.
