Shutting Down.....

One of my best friend's (pictured above with her little sister) is on her way to say good-bye to her grandpa this weekend. He has Alzheimer's and she got the call from home this morning saying the doctor's said he was starting to shut down pretty rapidly now and would probably pass sometime in the next couple days.
So as I type she is at the beginning of his end.
Everytime I think about the situation and her I feel weird in my stomach and get burny eyes only because I imagine the good-byes are going to be brutal. Still..what an important thing to do if you have the chance, which they do.
She's a rock so I know she'll be there for everyone and they'll be there for her, but I still feel a million miles away and useless which is MY hang up, of course. I think I'll go and keep her kitties company this weekend while she's away.
ugh...poor Anners and family.

Someone call a scientist!

Because I think I'm onto something here. It is no secret that I am VERY challenged in the numeric arts. Always have been most certainly always will be. That's not me selling myself short's just true. I'm great at other stuff like....umm.....getting to work on time....and...enjoying nice weather.....etc.
But I digress.
I've discovered that when I am forced to deal with math that I become PHYSICALLY tired at the end of that particular day. At my last job I had to do TONS of really difficult accounting stuff that I didn't understand, and I was ALWAYS exhausted.
Now at my new and great job I have to do some very light, but still kind of tough, budgeting work and sure as long division makes me car sick....that little bit of numbering made me sleep like the dead the past two nights.
So here's what I'm wondering. Is the ONE thing in life I loath the most the key to helping me finally get some good sleep, something I LOVE the most?
I understand if you'd like to take a minute and let this all soak in. It's a lot to absorb on a Wednesday afternoon. Get yourself a glass of water and sit a spell. It's okay. My genius makes me dizzy as well.

There....feeling better? Good. Because here's my plan. I'm going to try to do some hard math in my head tonight an hour before bed and see if x=y or all the sides of the triangle divide by...3 or whatever. Dangerous? Definitly. But it JUST might be crazy enough to work........

If my plan is victorious the irony will be delish.

There'll be a new score in town, so called Math.

Numbers = 1
Crescent = 1

which equals.....hold on.....let me get my calculator......

CRESCENT ANNOYED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!! (SMASH DESK!!!!) HATE WORKING WITH NUMBERS!!!!!! TOO HARD!!!!! (KICK GARBAGE CAN!!!!) GRUMBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHY EVERYONE UP IN GRILL TODAY!!!!!! (PUNCH WALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) WANT TO GO HOME AND WATCH TV WITH CATS!!!!!!

I am so cranky right now and I was trying to figure out who or where to vent some of my toxins....but then I realized none of the things that are annoying me have enough valuable content to warrant dumping them on friends and family. Then I remembered my sweet little blog. She'll love me no matter HOW crabariffic I am. See...I already feel better.

I guess I wasn't even all that mad now that I think about it. I only get really mad about once a decade so maybe that was it for the two thousand oughts. Cool.

Back to work. tra la la.....

Spring Fever...

Tomorrow is the first day of spring. The day my middle sister was SUPPOSED to be born. Instead she hung out a little longer and made it until the 23rd. She doesn't like it when I use her pictures too much so I'll just post a picture of her favorite flower instead.

My dad's birthday is April 1st....for's not an early April Fool's joke...(it would be the worst one in history if it was a joke). "I really pulled a good one THIS year! I made some blog readers think my dad's birthday was on a different day than it actually WAS!!! should've seen their faces when I told them the truth...ahahahahahahah...I'm a genius...a genius of prank."

Anyway, we are having a combined party for both of them next weekend back home. AND I still owe my other sister a b-day present from I have to get my act together this weekend and do some hard core gift shopping. (the shopping will be hard core...the gifts will be regular core)
