Yes. As a Mom and an SQA engineer. You?
Happy Samhain, dear one.

Eek!

Yeah. Silver/gold pantaloons, blue jingle belt (someone thought I might have been Santa Claus until they saw me), fuchsia hair wrap, purple cutout shirt, earrings, and shockingly, makeup. Unless I’m interviewing, they ain’t gonna see *that* again. 🙂

Ear worm for you. No charge. Cause that’s how we roll.
Could have been worse you know. Could have been the Muppet “mah-nop” song. Or…(*WEG*) any one of these:::

Chili’s “Baby Back Ribs” jingle.
“Who Let the Dogs Out”
“We Will Rock You”
Kit-Kat candy-bar jingle (“Gimme a Break …”)
“Mission Impossible” theme
“YMCA”
“Whoomp, There It Is”
“The Lion Sleeps Tonight”
“It’s a Small World After All”

Now I’ve got this montage of “Whoomp There It Is” with “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” as the melody in the background. With a combo of Mission Impossible and Muppets for the chorus.
You suck. Srsly.

“eeevil unholy day of Sam-hane!”

This morning’s drive was beautiful. It was a perfect Halloween morning. Ground mist lingered in patches and swags of silver through bare tree branches. The eastern sky was hazily lit by the sun; a huge yet dim orange ball of fire. Too bad that there were other people on the goddamn road. They totally harshed my bliss. Otherwise, I could have really enjoyed the commute into work.

Still and all – can’t complain overly much. Its my favorite time of the year. Its my week with the Girlie; which means that I get to take her Trick or Treating. My sweetie was snuggled in the covers at *our* house, when I left this morning. There are a couple of bumps in the road but we are dealing with them.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Trick or Treating entourage will be leaving from my house around 6PM. We will be having a quick dinner; probably hamburgers and mac n’cheese— afore we leave. Anyone with kiddoes that wants to join us — or who just wants to be part of Sum’s* Honor Guard will be most welcome. Drop me a line here or in email for directions to our new place**.


* – Her Most Royal Highness, Empress of the World and All-Around Great Kid, the Lady Summerkins.

** – let me know and I will drop a burger on the grill for ya’ll as well.

srsly…

What a long week its been. Yes, I know that its only Tuesday. But, I didn’t really get a weekend break.~

Oh…Ferfuckssakes….

I just got an email from the Girlie’s teacher stating that she hadn’t turned in last week’s homework nor had she brought her homework folder to school for the past three days. I had noticed it gone last evening when I picked her up from school. She told me that she had left it at school.

Last week was her Dad’s week. I was on my “vacation” for the year — down in South Florida moving the BF up to TX.~~

Am I just expecting too much from him? I mean…how goddamn hard is it to make sure that she is doing her schoolwork? That it makes it into her folder? That her folder makes it into her backpack? That she has lunch/lunch money each day?

*chews on desk in frustration*

I think I may just have to re-negotiate the custody paperwork and take her full time. She cannot have this inconsistency in her expectations. She needs more structure as she’s borderline ADHD. I’m not going to medicate her — she doesn’t need that. What she does need is to know what to expect and when to expect it. That should not ever change no matter whose house she is at. It gives her the tools to help stay focused and on track.

And its not like exJ and I haven’t had this talk before. More than once. More than thrice.

Maybe his teeth are making him forget again. *high eye roll*
