Ugghh it's only Thursday? How can that be? All day long I've been thinking it's Friday. I'm so over this week already, actually I was over this week at about noon on Monday. So it's not really Friday, correct? But it IS June? Not April? Because you sure fooled me Mother Nature. On one of those days this week that I was wishing was Friday, but was really Tuesday, it rained FOUR inches here in J-town! IN TWO HOURS! Half of my backyard was under water and I still haven't checked the crawl space. I'm afraid, very afraid of what lurks in THE CRAWL SPACE. The way I figure, if it's damaged, it's damaged, nothing I can do to salvage the crap in there anyway, and if it's not flooded, well than all is well. Just saved myself the aggravation of hauling everything out of the closet to take a peek. I should take a peek though, no? Maybe tomorrow, which would FINALLY be Friday and a day off for me, yippeeee. Just found out this morning, it was unexpected and I'm still doing the happy dance.
So I've been thinking of what I could do on a day off during the week. I could sleep in and/or sleep all day. I could clean my house, or not. I could catch up on soaps and Lifetime movies. I could go garage sale-ing, but it looks like more rain. I could go to the mall and get annoyed by all the teenyboppers that infest the place instead of being productive young people. Nah, I'll pass on the mall.
Perhaps I'll just sit around and ponder my latest dilemma....
As you know, my step-daughter, Augie Dawgs is pregnant again. Long story short, we found out about her 1st pregnancy about 2 months before TOF's arrival and it was winter, blah blah blah, so there was no time for me to plan a baby shower. She and her mom, Whynot's ex-wife, have a complex relationship and they weren't speaking at the time and long story longer, now they are civil with one another and Lord Helmet (the ex-wife) has announced that she would like to throw a baby shower for Augie Dawgs.
Since I've lost most of you in the above confusion, I'm just going to ramble a bit more here. Lord Helmet made life a living hell for all of us, and she has NEVER called me by my real name, I was always referred to as HER. My kids were always HER KIDS. As in, "look your dad is spending all his time with HER and HER KIDS!"
Now imagine Augie Dawgs' shock and surprise when Lord Helmet asked her if she would like to invite Megryansmom and Glittegurl to the baby shower. She looked at Lord Helmet and said, "my God you know my sister's name!!??"
So now I am faced with this predicament.....do I go and bury the hatchet, or stay far away in fear of the hatchet being buried in my back when I 'm not looking? If I go, should I bring all my own food and beverages? Or just say, "no thanks, I'm really not hungry and/or thirsty." I really want to go, because I'm a bitch like that, but of course I would never cause a scene. And it has been TWENTY friggin years! Glittergurl has already requested the day off at work, she's definitely going because she wants to meet the crazy lady that always made a scene at Jewel when we all happened to be there at the same time.
What do you guys think I should do?
p.s. If I do go I already told Augie Dawgs I'm bringing a cheap, cheesy, crappy gift, because I'm a bitch like that.
