is that baby ugly. Some people just shouldn't procreate.

I know. I know.

It's mean to say a baby is ugly.

But...it is.

It really is.

I feel sorry for it.
so I lied.

Accidently, of course.

I do have more than one J/C icon. I just forgot that I'd made this one.

to the Chakotah/Janeway fandom.


As if I needed another one.


I've made a wallpaper and decided to share. I've also made an icon...as you can see ;).

It's in her eyes )
This had some weird pictures in it and a naughty one of Cary Grant! Oy! LOL

My Interests Collage! )

Oh boy!

I'm under a tornado warning and the sirens have just now stopped going off. It's now 7:20, the time when the storm was supposed to come and go through town, but the warning doesn't end until 7:45. My niece heard the sirens and got scared and went to the storm shelter instead of coming here so she's all by herself.

Since I live in the basement, I'm as safe as I can possibly be in a tornado. I don't know if it will actually touch down here, but it has done damage in two other towns on its way here.

I'm not necessarily scared for myself, I don't scare easily...and I've lived with this all my life, but I am worried about my family that aren't as safe. I have siblings that live in mobile homes, and my father's home doesn't have enough room that's safe to hold everyone. I'm aslo thinking about the stuff I could lose that can never be replaced (besides family) such as my photo albums of me as a baby with pictures of my mom.

I have my place in the closet all ready for me to take the laptop and sit and wait it out, but so far the sirens haven't come back on so we'll see.

I'll be back later, if nothing happens, to update.

ETA: I'm okay. Still under a warning, but it's actually pretty calm right now. From what I've heard it's on the other side of the county. I've been without power until just a few moments ago (about 11 p.m. CST) so that's why I haven't updated until now.
to be able to sleep past ten o'clock. I actually got nearly nine hours. No disturbance at all! And then...I took a nap this afternoon.

Now I'm sitting here wishing I didn't have to go to work tomorrow, but I keep reminding myself that I will have five days off after tomorrow. It's going to be nice, even if it will be hard on the paycheck.

As of five o'clock today...I'm off until Sunday!


I can sleep in tomorrow!

Sigh...the things that make me happy LOL

It sucks because we have to do inventory.


I'm so tired.

Two days of counting clothes...over ten thousand pieces. Between the two days...it took us eleven hours.

And now, because of the holiday...I have to work ten days straight before I get a day off.


I'm tired.
that sat in the middle of the room all day just sort of put a damper on things.

I got to see Mia, twice as a matter of fact (once Christmas Eve and then tonight), but not having Keelie there...it just...

I was afraid to even talk about her. It just wasn't...well, it just didn't feel very festive.

I got sick as a dog at about seven this morning so I didn't get to sleep as well as I'd like to have. And then with the Keelie thing...

I just wasn't in a holiday sort of mood.

And what do I come home to?

My *@!# neighbor doing whatever it is they do with the scraping of funiture back and forth across the floor and the stomping etc.


I'm a scrooge and I know it.

Not so scroogy that I didn't get a few pics of Mia.

Mia says 'cheese' as I snap the picture:

more Mia )
I took a Christmas present to M.O.M. (my other mother) and got to visit with her a little before going to work. I got some sad news from her, her mother is dying, but we didn't dwell on that because she and I have been there...in reverse...and she knows that I know how it is when you want them to be well and that is something that won't happen while they're here.


I got to see the baby doll! I heard her crying and knew it was her, even though I couldn't see her, and was so afraid I wasn't going to get to see her...but her mama brought her over to see me. Keelie even let me hold her and gave me kisses even though she wasn't very happy...she hadn't had a nap.



Then, we had our Christmas party tonight. I had steak, Texas toast, fries, fried okra, and green beans...then for dessert...a piece of pumpkin cheesecake that is so sinfully delicious it's absolutely decadent!

I got a very pretty pink sweater from the assistant manager, who had drawn my name, and some Bath and Body Works Japanese Cherry Blossom lotion from the manager who always gets us all something.

Even though I'm tired...all in all it was a very good day!

ETA: Oh yeah...I forgot to say that when I got home, I had a Christmas card from the owner of the apartments that I live in...and inside was a gift card for $35.00!

How cool is that?

I have the twinkie dinks (my twin nieces)...and they're crazy! I think they've had too much chocolate LOL

Crazy girlies!
a very happy Christmas.

Thanksgiving was happy because of the baby.

But the baby won't be there for Christmas.

I might not ever get to see the baby again.

It's a long story, and one I don't want to go into because I could cry, but suffice it to say..her momma left and took her with her (with good reason).
after having a person around for nearly thirty one years, the family still doesn't have a clue who this person is?

My family knows that I have trouble sleeping. They know that I go to bed late and that I don't get up early unless I have to.

So why do they call me at eight thirty and then another one at nine forty five on my day off?


Just because you're up at that time, doesn't mean that everyone is.

Good grief.

Today has been a long day thanks to those phone calls. I hadn't been asleep for more than two and a half hours when the first one came in.

And then work calls...and calls...and calls...and calls...after I decide to go back to bed and take a nap.

I work in clothing but yet it's like I'm in the medical field or something where they're on call twenty four/seven.

Okay...enough complaining.

The ice is here. The trees are covered with it, although it isn't on the roads...yet.




I don't want another ice storm.




But we may get another one Sunday into Monday.



For those of you who haven't heard, there was a shooting rampage at the Westroads Mall in Omaha, Nebraska. The company I work for has a store there...right next to the store where the shooting happened. The manager of our store there was in tears because they'd heard the shots and then got as many people in the store as they could after they ran screaming from the Von Maur store, taking them to the dressing rooms and the back room as they pulled the gate and waited. The SWAT team came and got everyone and took them to JC Penny.

I can't even imagine how scared they all must have been and still are.

Nine are dead, including the shooter (they believe he killed himself), and five are wounded with some in critical condition.

We were all a bit skittish after we found out because our mall is older and doesn't have security guards, cameras, etc. and if something like that could happen at a newer mall with all the security features...

And the shooter was only nineteen/twenty years old.

How sick is that? He couldn't just blow his brains out at home if that's what he chose to do? He had to take eight, possibly more, people with him?

More reason for me to find a job where I can work from home.

My thoughts and prayer are with the families of those lost and wounded today. Their Christmases aren't going to be very bright this year.

ETA: Here's a link to the story...mall rampage.

It's petite. P-e-t-i-t-e.

Not peteek (the way they pronouce it...I'm not sure how they'd spell it).

Drives me insane.

That and they always add an 's' to our store name.

The store name is all over the place. My name tag, the signage, the bags.

It all has our name.

And yet they still insist on saying it with an 's', and writing it with an 's' on their checks.

I've taken up gritting my teeth.


Enough with the pet peeves ;).
decorate for Christmas and I can't afford to buy the tree and decorations.


I've been given a tree from the lady over maintance of the mall. She has a few trees that they aren't using there at the mall and she said I could have the best of the bunch. She also said I could have the unused ornaments and decorations. And I can also get Dad to bring me the stuff that we used to decorate with when I was growing up.

I think I'll have my niece come over and help me figure out just where to put the tree and then decorate it.

I can't believe I'm going to have a Christmas tree after going without for over ten years.

My footies hurt.

My legs hurt.

My knees hurt.

My back hurts.


I hate standing on my feet eight hours a day.
