{April 29, 2018}   Dress Code

Thursday I went for my interview so I had on a nice pair of jeans boots and nice top. I forgot to toss a work shirt in the truck and was rushing to get there on time so I went in what I had on. I was told I was dressed improperly. Because I didn’t have the t shirt with the work log and name on it. I was told they like you to wear something with it on it but was never told you had to. There are girls in here all the time working in what looks like pajamas and nothing is ever said to them. We wear flip flops most days. At least I was dressed nice. But whatever.

Then yesterday I wasn’t bothered about going to work but I just did not feel like wearing shoes. I just wanted to put my flip flops on and go. I thought I seen my friend wearing them before, I text amd ask him. He said no he didn’t think we could. I said fine I will be there in a bit, I’m trying to force myself to put shoes on.

I get there and it is slow, him, the other driver, one of the owners and I were standing around talking. My friend says the owner said I could wear stripper boots but not flops. I said well great I broke my stripper boots, thats why I had no shoes the night you picked me up from my friends house. The owner said something about having stripper boots. My friend said you do forget she is good friends with me nothing should really surprise you. We laughed. I said I do have a rather nice collection of stripper heels. But I do not think they would be good to deliver pizza’s in.

The poor kid that dives with us just stood there not saying a word and looking a little unsure.

Maybe I should get an outfit to go with my steipper heels and wear them. Maybe I would make better tips.

I just find it funny I am dressed nice amd professional and something gets said because I am not wearing a tshirt and flops or sneakers. But then they say you can wear stripper boots just not flops at the other job. I know she was joking but not joking at the sametime. She knows I wouldn’t but if I did who cares as long as I have shoes on and working basically.



{December 6, 2016}   Good Morning

It’s 8:30 and my two little ones should already be at school but they are not. One is somewhere in the house doing who knows what and the other is sitting in the floor throwing a fit because she wants to wear her black sparkly shoes. I don’t care if she wears rainbow colored sparkly shoes but she can not wear her black shoes because cause she decided to wear them in the bathtub last night and they are still wet. So now she is rolling around in the floor crying. Shoes are a battle I do not pick to fight or worry about as long as they fit, match, and they have socks on. But I can’t let her wear soaked shoes to school.

Now I am sure her hair is going to need to be brushed again she is rolling around and now she has one shoe off. I guess she will be going to school with her shoes in her hand because she is wearing what she is told to wear. When she gets there and they tell her she has to put them on she is going to have to listen or sit and watch all her friends play and do fun stuff.

Now the boys decide to eat and put all their lunch stuff in their lunch boxes. I don’t know why they didn’t put in their boxes when they laid it all out 30 minutes ago. I have to go to the SSI office and wanted to be there by 9 it looks like I am not going to be there until 930 at this rate. At least I get in and out most days.

I should be up after them to get ready but I am not in the mood to fight with them. They are lucky my Little Bitty don’t get counted late since it is more like daycare and my kinder isn’t late until like 9. His teacher lets them have free play and takes care of things she needs to do so she don’t count them late if they miss free play.

Now my oldest is asking for help putting her earrings in. Why I don’t know because she never wears them. I mean never ever in her life does she wear them. If she wears a pair once every two years is a lot for her. That is why she needs help putting them on her holes kind of close up.

Now the little has ripped her shoes and socks off and putting her wet shoes on. I guess I better go make this child listen. It is to early for this I didn’t sleep good and I got beat up all night from my little one sleeping in my back and tossing turning and kicking me all night.



{September 5, 2016}   Money is Money

Me and the kids went the store last night or the night before everything is one big day right now. we were looking around some how we ended up in the shoes. I seen two pair of boots I wanted, one I wanted last year but they didn’t have my size. The others are new this year. I was going to get a couple pair and let the kids pick out a pair or two and put them on layaway that had just started. I told my oldest to go over and ask how much we had to put down on layaway to start it. They told her you can not layaway clothes and shoes. But you can layaway Tv’s, video games, toys and all that kind of things.

I don’t understand their thinking here. What is the difference if I put $$400 worth of clothes and shoe’s in there than if I put a $400 tv or $400 worth of toys? $400 is $400 whatever I spend it on. Way to go lets make is easy and convenient for parents to come in a spend $100’s on crap for their kids that they don’t need but god for bid we make it a little easier for them to buy them things they need and can use like shoes and clothes. It’s not like I even wanted to leave them that long. I just wanted to put them in so everyone could get the ones they liked and the size they want while they just got stock in and had a nice selection. I could pay them off next week when I get my money. They had some other clothes I would have liked to put in there for the kids and me as well to get ready for winter. I have good mind going somewhere else next week to look for shoes when I get my money. I hate shopping there but it is the closes store to get things at without going 10 or 15 miles away. Maybe more and I don’t want to do that just for a few things here and there so I end up shopping there.



{August 14, 2016}   Cleaning Day

I haven’t felt good most the day, I woke up sick to my stomach with pain in my right side but at the same time really hungry and craving different odd foods. I ate a little off and on and had dinner it is still hurting and it is almost midnight. I am thinking it is my gallbladder but who knows really. I am going to get on making doctors appointments and things this week.

Despite not feeling good and hurting I have been in cleaning mode since I got up until I hour or two ago. I made everyone one at a time empty their dresser and closet of all their clothes and bring them to the couch. I then went through and took out anything way to big, to small or that was a rag and gave them what was left back. I made them count their dresser draws and told them how to divide them all up and put them away. While I was doing all that I had the two older ones running the washer, drier and the dishwasher. I am down to having my room and the clothes from the washer to go through. I then have to go around and gather anything they missed washing and get it started so that they can wash dog blankets tomorrow and I can get any other blankets out there washed.

Tomorrow I am going through both bedrooms and getting rid of everything they don’t play with, have outgrown, that’s broken, or just needs to go because they have to much. While I do that they are going to vacuum and mop. I have asked long enough for them to do their stuff and get it all out of the way and from all over my house so that I could clean the rest of my house. They haven’t and now they can clean while I clean out and I now have the say in what stays or goes. Thinking about that reminds me I need to get the bins to my daughters cube thing in the living room and clean them since the new ones i bought don’t fit in it. I am going to put a few things in them she can keep in the living room to play with and the rest has to be kept in the bedroom.

I start 4 of my 5 classes Monday the other one next month. They were all supposed to start Monday and some how I got put in the wrong class. I tried to change it and the one I want is full. I want everything gone through and put in it’s place so that we can keep up with it better now that we are all back in school.

With everyone gone most the day it shouldn’t get messed up as bad or as fast. I have a chore chart I made awhile back I am going to revise and we are going to start following it. In stead of making everyone in charge of washing their own clothes and having them mound up I am going to start having everyone put their clothes in one basket after they shower and the next day when we get home then someone will be responsible making sure that load gets done for the day. Everyone will still be responsible for their own bed stuff. I will wash mine and the little kids bed stuff, towels and things like that during the day when I am here and they are at school. I think I have it all figured out to make things run as simple and as smooth as possible for us all.
