More Baby Pictures....

Sorry, I could not rotate this one for the life of me....Tilt head, ever so slightly to the left, please.

And one with Gramma and Aunt Robin...
I know there are thousands of more important things to write about, and I should write about them but somehow I just can't right now.
Hey, the President is going to talk in about an hour from now, so let me just say in advance, "What he said." Will that work?

A Happy Baby

...always makes me feel better. Can you believe how big she is now? This is one of my favorite pictures, and never fails to make me smile. Oh, btw, she knows what "no" means now, and knows how to say it-a lot.

Holy Crap Again!

No baby pix yet; that's because baby's mama (my daughter) was admitted into the hospital this week with pancreatitis! She was quite ill until they took out the gallbladder---now she's feeling much better. But what a week; babysitting, visiting, buying groceries for her (she had none)---very hectic.
Went back to work this week at my old job part time, as the paycheck from my new job just isn't as big as I thought it would be, especially after taxes. I am anxiously awaiting the supposed tax cut President O is going to give us. We need it now!

at the library....

Holy Crap!
Has it really been 2 months!!! So sorry, y'all!
I have been so busy adjusting to this new job, plus my computer is currently in the dumper---I hope to have it fixed by this weekend, so keep your fingers crossed...Right now, I'm at our beautiful new library, take advantage of their computers which I love; the only sucking point is the 45 minute time limit, a necessary evil. If all goes well this weekend, I should have a plethora of pictures to post regarding the details of my life, which are probably of no interest to anyone but me, but I'm postin' them anyway.
To update---We had a grand Holiday season, despite the fact everyone is stressed out and broke (so why should this year be any different?), my car broken into (smashed the windows, but stole nothing). and best of all, my daughter Robin graduated from law school! (Hope to have some pictures of that too). Other stuff: S/O's business is in trouble, but we're working like mad to make things work, and there's some other health junk going on (life with an autoimmune disorder). But all in all, we're hangin' in there. Thanks to those that wrote, and sorry I've been out of the loop---New Year's Resolution 2009---BLOG MORE OFTEN----MORE BABY PICTURES!

I Have A New Job!!!

Yes I know there are more important things to blog about; the election (which btw, I'm very happy about!), Proposition 8 (which I'm not), even my granddaughter's impending birthday (her first!), and my new Dykes To Watch Out For book arrived (hooray---and free, even). But I'm still giddy over the prospect of health insurance, paid bills, and (dare I dream?) a savings account. Plus, they have tuition reimbursement, so I could go back to school for my LPC. I start Dec. 1st; candles, prayers, and/or positive vibes will be accepted...

my next nervous breakdown

It's been a rough time at Casa de Shadocat. The Car was resurrected from the dead, this due to a new/used engine put in to the tune of $3500 . S/O's vertigo is past, but the effect it had on our pocketbooks continues----she missed a lot of time from work, and sick leave didn't cover it all. I am working both jobs at full tilt just to get the bills paid---I miss blogging, but there's no time, just no time! I would say I'm sick of this whole election, but I'm so desperate for Obama to win, if this nail-biting process will make that possible, then I'm all for it.
Grandbaby's first B-day is coming up next month, and I'm actually thinking I might not be able to afford a present. And forget about Christmas; seriously, this year, could we really forget about it?
Oh and last week, guess who chipped off two of her FRONT TEETH and can't afford to have them fixed? C'est moi, tis I.
And yes, I blame this all on the Republicans. Why? Because if say, Al Gore had become the president, maybe we wouldn't be spending a gazillion $$$$$ on TWO WARS, and maybe the economy would've been better regulated, and wouldn't be going to hell in a hat box. AND MAYBE then, there'd be more jobs around, even for a fat-ass, middle-aged cripple, and I could have one good job, instead of two crappy ones.
Thank you to all who read this post, for letting me bitch and moan---I actually feel a little better now. Break over, back to work!

yes, it's true

I borrowed this picture from Feminsting----I know it's hateful, but I thought it was kinda funny...
Has it been over a month since I was here last? I've been out of the saddle for awhile due to health reasons, but now I'm feelin' pretty good (knock wood). So maybe tomorrow, I'll write a real entry on something important....
