If Mama Ain't Happy Monday

Well, it's that time of the week again so let's see why I'm not happy this week..

~Mama ain't happy that it's time to clean the fish tanks again's a gross job but Davis just isn't old enough to do it yet.

~7 weeks and still no fan for my sweetie. I tried calling on Friday and got voicemail. No one has called back and I really don't expect them to. Plus, when I talked to David earlier, he said the property officer is on vacation this week anyway so that means he won't get it this week.

~Davis may have to take a couple weeks off from school because the payments won't be made from the 23rd til the first day I start classes. I get financial assistance paying for his daycare so I guess I shouldn't really complain, but he LOVES school and will get bored and irritable quickly at home unless I come up with plenty of activities which means I'll be exhausted.

~Mama doesn't like being hung up on by an automated system. I tried to call today to apply for unemployment and was told I had to call back another day because they are now scheduling callers based on their social security numbers...then the system hung up on me. This process is so frustrating because I've tried going into the office in person twice now and both times I've been told their list is full for the day so I have to come back. Apparently I need to be there by the time they open to get my name on the list for the day. Oh well, I'll just have to try again tomorrow.

~ I'm really annoyed by this fly that won't go away.

~ My aunt, uncle and cousins (except Bryan) all left tonight for Camp Sunshine. I will miss them and so will Davis.

~It's been over a month since Davis and I have gone to visit David, I just haven't had the money.

Okay, so now on to the good things..

~I feel like I'm getting better at this blogging thing, little by little.

~My aunt, uncle and cousins are all away at Camp Sunshine til Friday which means Davis, Bryan and I have the house to ourselves and I won't have to listen to the bickering Alec and Tommy for several days. Camp Sunshine is a retreat for children with life threatening illnesses and their families. My family has been going for years because Lindsay has Lupus. She's there as a volunteer this year, helping out with some of the younger kids.

~Davis showed me a bunch of his art projects in his classroom today. He seemed so proud and went around the room pointing out all the projects he had done.

~I got to talk to David on the phone! It's always great to actually hear his voice.

  1. Oh, I'm SO with you on the getting hung up on by the automated phone systems. SO irritating! And it usually happens after you've been pressing buttons trying to get to a person for 10 minutes!

    And the fish tanks...we only have one but it seems like I'm cleaning it constantly!
