I broke my glass snowdrop.

And? The movie I wanted to see that Eliz has taken off from work to keep Emily for me- won't be playing still by Friday.

Emily decided to run away today. We fought this morning because she threw her breakfast in the garbage and then lied to me about it. So before I got home, she took off and left a note saying she would be back by tomorrow.


She's home and she's safe... this time. I had visions of trains, snakes, heat exhaustion, rapists, murderers and other sundry dangers attendant on a 13 year old walking down the road unattended.

This is not the first time she has run away. The next time, I'm not even going looking, I'm calling the police immediately and she can spend the night in juvenile.

I finished the library curtain. I think it looks terrible, Emily doesn't see anything wrong with it. What do you guys think?

This has been a day for sure!

Em got caught trying to skip class on the 18th so she has Saturday School for 8:55am to 12:00pm Saturday the 2nd. She also left the homework assignments she was supposed to do at school. And she's complaining of being tired- but I was still trying to get her to go to sleep at 9pm- an hour after bedtime.

Eliz ran the red light at the same corner she did before- and since there are cameras there, I got another ticket on her car. (Car in my name, ticket in my name- thanks honey.) I already knew about it since she told me when it happened and she'll pay for it- but still.

Bitsy broke her collar so I had to go to the pet store after work and buy her a harness. That's needed doing for some time now- she pulls a lot on any leash or tie out and hurts her throat. But did it have to be today?

I had to stop on the way home and try to fix my neighbour's Direct TV which is getting no signal. I think their dish needs realigning. So, of course, after a solid hour, I still was not able to fix it. I wish I could talk them into fiber optic- their service calls would be free and very fast and I wouldn't feel at all guilty calling the service department for them and asking someone to come out to fix it. (Why am I fixing my neighbour's TV? Because they are a sweet wonderful brother/sister couple in their 80s and they don't understand all these new fangled electronics... and their family doesn't help them out like they should.)

Arrgh! F*cking sweet potatoes!

I entered a drawing again- I don't know why. I never do win them.

Willie came and changed my window out yesterday. Yay! now all I have to do is hang my panels and trim it out and make a new window treatment and I will have my window. I'm going to try to get that done in the evenings this week so I'll have my all quilting day on Saturday.

I splurged on some wine last night called Red Decadence. It's flavored with dark chocolate and is simply wonderful as an after dinner sipping wine. I also got Barista which has coffee with red wine. We'll try that tonight.

The reason I was buying wine- very angry at my Mom )

I've been working on Don't Go Out A-Lone Star- the points are going to take me somewhat longer than I thought but then I get to the spiderwebs after that. I'll probably work on it some Saturday but I also plan to clean some in the sewing room and get Granny's Quilt on the frame so I can start work on it for Emily.

I got some bad news on Friday- Emily does have state insurance- they reinstated her. But because of the bobble, it's a different type and they canceled her old insurance... and the new one does not take effect until February 1. This would have never been noticed if I hadn't needed to refill her prescription Friday. As it is, I have just barely enough meds to get her through Tuesday morning. Thankfully, I'll be able to pick up her prescription Tuesday so I won't have to send her to school without meds. That would be a recipe for sheer disaster.

I also got a bill last week for a doctor's visit that I paid over two years ago. They're re-billing me and saying I still owe it and I can't get their customer service on the phone to fix it.

I did get my windows and they are beautiful and not broken but I won't be posting pictures until I have them hung which will take some time. I have to get our handyman to replace the library window before I can hang them and trim out the inside and he's slow... and I will have to special order the window which takes at least two weeks.

I did not get two other packages- one from England and one from Australia, that I ordered before Christmas. Grr!

Friday, a very very hot pan got dropped on the kitchen floor... and melted part of the vinyl. Since I was already planning to replace the floor this is a very minor annoyance, I just need to come up with the money sooner... like as soon as I finish the library window. And no, nobody was badly burned, thank goodness!

Add to that I hurt all over and you've got one pretty miserable, stressed wren.

Ok, Which f*cking minor deity did I piss off and how do I make amends?

My telephone is out tonight. Internet, I have and power (and still heat, thankfully)... but no phone.

Not in a good place this morning.

Cut for ranting )

If this doesn't mean you, you know it. In fairness there are a couple of people who don't give me this feeling and most of them are right here.

Edit: Well, that was nice. I have a little sanding yet to do and Emily commented that one of the doors was hard to open. Well, it is- yet. I told her I still had sanding work to do on it and she smarted off with "Ya think?"

Nasty thought I didn't say )

So now I'm in a total mood when I was feeling kind of nasty already but not at her. And I'm kind of regretting the fairly nice breakfast I made for her. Should have stuck with oatmeal.
wren08: (hides)
Well, it's Friday night and everyone I know has something to do or someone to be with except me, it seems. Me? I get to take the dog out- over and over and over. And fix Emily's shoe. And- well, you get the idea.

To combat this, Emily and I made fudge- which took too long and she had to go to bed. So I kept stirring. Obviously I didn't stir hard enough or something because while it cooked long enough, the sugar didn't all melt and it's grainy. I have the sensation that I have wasted both time and materials that could have been better used.

I think I should just put this hurt ankle to bed- today is not going to improve and tomorrow could be better... although right at the moment, I doubt it.

Well, I feel very much thrown back upon myself.

I need an intervention.

I have found the perfect floor for the living room... and it's about 3 times what I should pay for it.

Somebody talk me out of it!
