this year totally sucks big (and small) ones.
it started out with B being unemployed. which went on and on and on.
then his truck was totalled out by the insurance company.
then he finally got a job.
then he got a new car.
yesterday he was put on hiatus.
really? i didn't know you could do that to a person. perhaps a crappy TV show for retooling. but a job?
this year sucks.
now, while neither of us are exactly sure what a job hiatus is, we do know this. the company he works for, their largest client cut their advertising with them by half. so, their knee-jerk reaction was to put B on hold for two weeks.
decorum and respect for my husband prevent sharing my opinion here. but if you know me, and most of you do, you've got a pretty dang good idea what i thought.
and what i still think.
so we'll see what happens - they should know if B stays or is voted off the island by end of next week.
in the meantime, i for one will be glad to kiss off 2008.
and it's only August.
happier posts later.
OK - that was long enough.
the Kindergartener and her mom called me today - and believe me, that call made my day.
the Kindergartener lost her first tooth today - it was sideways, and, when she showed her mom, my sister in law told her to pull it out.
which she did.
ohgoodmoogleygoogley. not a chance in hell i could do that.
so the Tooth Fairy is making a stop in Reno tonight, extracting teeth and leaving a fiver. why a fiver? because the Fairy ran out of cash when the Boyo lost his first tooth and it was either a $5 or a $20.
sometimes, the Fairy needs an assistant.
but, they both know now that, while the Tooth Fairy leaves $5 for the first tooth, every subsequent one only nets $1.
i'm hoping for photos of the toothless wonder. hint, hint, Maureen.
here's hoping tomorrow is a better day.
