    A Work of Art

    If I were a work of art, I would be M. C. Escher's Lizards.

    I am a bizarre juxtaposition of the real and the unreal. Based in the realm of mathematics, my two-dimensional appearance belies a complex and free-willed behaviour which both delights and confuses people.

    Which work of art would you be? The Art Test

    Best thing that happened today
    Let me preface with this. My kids have never mentioned the 130 pounds I have lost. I'm just Mom to them no matter what. We used to have a little neighbor named Jermaine. He's like 11, was James's best bud until he moved the end of August. Well he's back visiting family this weekend. He came to the door while we were eating and I told him James would be out later. I guess when James went out later Jermaine said "Wow your Mom has lost a lot of weight. I didn't even recognize her." Boy, did that make me wanna go out and hug that boy. :)

    Thanksgiving Aftermath
    Well the day went off without a hitch. Food was good and we actually had some turkey left over. Maybe because now I can't eat three peoples share. Even got the kitchen all cleaned up. My sister got me 40.00 to spend at Wal-Mart and my mom made me an amazing scrapbook. I can't wait to go to Wal-Mart and get some sweatpants, a flannel and some socks. Sexy Momma, that I am. :) Think it's time for round two of dinner.

    Thanksgiving Prep
    Well I have everything done that can be done the night before. I have a damn blister on the side of my finger from peeling yams and potatoes. I really need some sharper knives. I'm also excited because we'll celebrate my birthday tomorrow. It's not until Monday be we always do it on Thanksgiving. I wonder what my Mom and sister got me. Theresa got me an awesome silver art deco watch. But I won't get it for like another week because we ordered it tonight. I'll lament on getting old on my actual birthday. This is my first big food holiday since my weight loss surgery. I'm not to worried because I can eat everything I like just not a lot of it. I'm sure glad I had the surgery when I did. It would suck to be newly pre-op at the holidays.

    Trivia and Nachos
    Just got back from meeting a couple I had only talked to on-line. They were very nice and I had a really good time. I think better than Steve did. He's such a stick in the mud. He says he wants to meet new people locally so we have someone to go out with. Then he can't wait to come home and get back on-line to play games with his on-line "friends". Oh well atleast I got to play this really cool trivia at the bar/resturant we went to. Plus they had great nachos. We were going to go out dancing afterwards, but we're too tired. Maybe tomorrow night.

    Poor Tree
    I just knew something was up when she came home crying. Stupid men and thier stupid issues. She's been dating O for like 2 months. Hell forget dating, let's just say living with. She stay there or he stays here every night. It's been that way since a week after they met. He's the one who brought up them not seeing other people. She's in love with him, but she refuses to be the first to say it. Which I totally understand, I was that way with Steve. I really thought this guy was the one. But of course he had a fucked up ex-girlfriend, so he seriously believes he doesn't deserve to be happy. He think's he not smart enough and doesn't do enough for Tree. Which is BS of course, he's the nicest guy she's ever dated. Now he's doing that "I don't like who I am and I should be in love with you but I'm not" But of course he still wants to date, etc etc. Of course, anything I say to her is not what she wants to hear. No one ever said losing weight would solve all your problems. She's thin now and having the same problem with men that she did when she was fat.

    Great..the sore tooth I have bee fighting has become a full blown toothache. I hate going to the dentist. I have so much work that needs to be done. Plus our dental insurance is kind of sucky. But I did take tylenol PM's for the first time since surgery last night and they worked really well.

    Current Mood: sore

    Another thing
    This seems to be a new thing since I've lost weight. When I'm upset by something, I feel really fragile, like if someone touched me I would shatter into a million pieces. After I got my rotten news and Steve tried to comfort me, I had to push him away. If he would have held me like he wanted to, I would have been hysterical. I think using my weight as a shell to protect myself is finally backfiring on me.

    Jobless Again
    I got hired as a telephone operator back in September. Training wasn't until 6 weeks later. But I was willing to wait because I really wanted the job. 1 week before training was suppose to start they called and said it was canceled. Of course I was bummed. No I was more than bummed, I was crushed. Me interviewing for this job was a big step for me. I haven't worked with the public in 9 years. Well a week after destroying me they called back and said they had a different training class starting on the 26th. So I said okay and waited another 4 weeks, just for them to call me today (2weeks before my training was to start) to tell me it's been canceled again. At this point I wouldn't work for that company if they paid me 50.00 an hour. I've been waiting 2 1/2 months for this job. But I am SO disappointed. Now we're REALLY going to be sucking for money. I was counting on my first paycheck to pay for Christmas.
