There is a certain sound that a child makes that all mothers know well. Kind of a whimpering unhappy desperate sort of noise. It roughly translates as 'mom, you're gonna be spending the next hour or five cleaning'.

Tonight it meant that I'd be cleaning up pee that had been sprinkled like fairy dust from the top of a loft bed all over a ton of things including the carpet. Son couldn't make it to the bathroom in his dazed state so he super soaked his bedroom (but didn't 'pee the bed'). I didn't get there in time to stop the flood, only to witness it's ravages. Needless to say, I'll be breaking out the spotbot tommorrow as it's too late to do it tonight. There is a load of laundry as well and I wiped down said child and half the toys in his room. He's REALLY going to clean them up tommorrow cause if they'd been in the damn toybox I'd only have had to clean up the carpet instead of 4,000 peices of stuff. Lego, I hate you.

And hugs hm. I'm sorry that happened.

So... 2200 pieces of truck to off-load, my poor manager will be there as long as she can, drive home, sleep a couple hours, and get up and come back to the store, and then deal with the corporate visit.

Makes my piddling "I have to get up at 7 am :cry" seem selfish and horrible...but there you are. I am not looking forward to that. But - coffee and doughnuts. Yay. Ok I'm off to get everything ready so all I have to do is roll outta bed...

He's back!

I don't know if it's my browser or not. My pictures seem to come and go.

It's a mystery.

I think I will just walk away from the computer for a while.

Yikes. Kind of makes you wish he'd peed the bed doesn't it?

So...

TWO WEEKS of making our store PERFECT, and by perfect, I mean we brought out our inner perfectionists and went over that sucker with a fine-tooth comb, and did super minutiae detailing.

Two weeks of my poor manager stressing out to the max and going a little nuts...

Two weeks of ME going nuts over my art dept section.

Because the art dept buyer, the photo album buyer, and the photo frame buyer and our District Manager were all showing up to see our store.

(see previous post about late night and early starts)

AND THEN.

The miserable bastards stayed for maybe ten minutes. And only then because they felt that if they skipped our store, my manager would be upset.

And all those :yell had to say was "Oh, could you switch the Oil Paints Section with the Kids' Section? Bye now!"

Neighbor's cat showed up in my back yard with part of his ear chewed off a few hours ago. The neighbors weren't home and still aren't.

Remember a couple of years ago I had what was thought to be a full stroke and started a flurry of tests that discovered the weird bit of dangliness at the back of my brain? Well, thankfully after the cluster of attacks back then (each one was like having a stroke that wore off after a couple of hours - numbness, inability to speak, disorientated etc etc etc - and left me feeling very drained and worn) I haven't really had them.

...Until now.

I had a very bad one on the frikkin' BUS on the way home. Full on, couldn't feel a damn thing, hands went dead, left side went numb, couldn't move, slurred speech, the whole nine yards. Stupidly I didn't let Pup phone an ambulance (I know, I know) and by the time I got off the bus I could at least walk. Ish.

The same night? Massive epileptic seizure.

The next day? Rinse and repeat. Luckily minus the seizure and it wasn't so bad. But now I'm shaky and I've got the random numbness back as well as all the rest of the issues that had faded without me really noticing.

Graaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah.

The cafe next to my office is playing horrible jazz-ish music today. It's really loud too.

On the bright side it seems to be keeping the students away.

Our times are posted on the door - please for the love of god, would somebody send a memo and force customers to read it and obey the times for me, as my methods are apt to get me fired?

My daughter ran off at the water park today. We were in the kiddie area and she ran to the other side. I thought she was just gonna climb up to do the slide again. about five minutes went by and she was still no where to be seen... so I turned to my mom and said "Where's Jaydn??" she looked around and said "I don't know..." so I ran around to look for her. it took us half an hour or more to find her. She's 3, gonna be 4 on sunday, so she's not totally sure what to do if she gets lost. Turns out, a lifeguard had found her and kept her with him until the woman who was helping us search found her and brought her to me. Scariest time of my life.

I'm so glad you found your daughter. It really amazes me how fast kids can wander off, especially in a sea of people. I've had similar experiences and nothing is more frightening.

*hgus* I'm glad you found her, hun. Kids seem to have it ingrained to make their parents panic.

My ass for the day? Hayfever sucks. I feel like I have flu when I know I don't. Also, so does vertigo. Oh, and having a scalp that HURTS because I had my dreads tightened yesterday. Owowowowowow...

As is made of suck. /pout

Dammit, I just heard about a better job than mine that is available but I can't quit this job and go for it. (Not without looking like a fucking douchebag anyway.) That one has only a three day work week (currently at four) and 10 hours a week (working 15 now). It's also only like 30 min from my house (current job is 90 min). Would expect the pay is equal or better. I have job envy so bad right now. AARGH IT BURNS. NEXT YEAR YOU'RE MINE, JOB.

Next year.

I haven't been dealing wtih the heat very well. Usually it's not too bad but this year? Yeah no. So today I feel like something that you can't identify on the bottom of your shoe but smells really bad, and it's 32 C out there and it'll be 32 tommorrow and guess what I get to do?? Go to the inlaws to help do a garage sale. Outside. IN A GREENHOUSE.

Whee.

Maybe if I pass out they'll cut me break.
