Peaches has now laid FIVE EGGS!!! What the hell am I gonna do with five more birds???? Oh Holy God I may have a crisis on my hands when these little critters are born!! Granted, all the eggs may not hatch. Then again, Peaches might not be done laying her eggs! I thought it would be fun to have two babies. TWO! At this rate, I’m gonna be starting an aviary in my little micro-apartment!! Time will tell what becomes of this Crazy Bird Lady . . .
Today I am going to Mom and Dad’s to be the maid. That’s what I do on Mondays and Fridays. And I don’t. Want. To. Go. I am SO LAZY!! And I have to work HARD there!! Being a maid is fucking hard work. It’s getting later and later . . . I should be in the shower by now . . . the resistance is strong in this one . . . dammit fuck. I guess I better force myself . . . get used to what it will be like to have a regular JOB!
Speaking of which I have gotten some calls regarding jobs I’ve applied for . . . jobs I am wildly unqualified for, but dammit I got these certifications and I want to work in the Security field! SOMEONE has to be willing to train me! One job sounds perfect . . . it’s right here in Longmont and it’s only 25-30 hours per week at $40/hour, hell I could live on that and part-time is right up my ally. I get SO BURNED OUT working a full-time job, I’d KILL for a part-time job!!! They are sending the company, Crocs of the ugly shoes, my resume. We shall see.
Well I better get my ample ass in the shower. Those red beans & rice aren’t gonna cook themselves, neither is the wall gonna paint itself. Fuckers. Have a great Monday!
Today I am celebrating still having a Dad. The past year has been full of turmoil, with Dad visiting the brink of death multiple times. He was so sick with C-Diff and Pneumonia and Sepsis, and I spent multiple nights at the hospital, wanting to be there with him if he died. It’s kind of incredible to me that he didn’t die. The whole family was prepared. Lots of tears were shed, believe me. But, Dad is a fighter and he loves his family like crazy and he doesn’t want to leave us! So, amazingly enough, we have made it to another Father’s Day. Each holiday and birthday is bittersweet, because I wonder if it’s Dad’s last. Maybe I don’t need to think that way, but I do.
Because I’m such a good daughter, I bought Dad a flashlight for Father’s Day. Wooooo!!! He should be overwhelmed. I’m so tired of trying to figure out what to buy him! He doesn’t need anything! He has enough shirts. But his flashlight is broken so boom! I saw something I could get him. I broke the bank at $6.97. I got cards for Dad and my brother at the dollar store, spent $1.14. The cards aren’t as good for sure but dammit I can’t spend six bucks on a card any more. My money is tight!! I’ll try to write something sweet to make up for the so-so card.
Because I am now a Crazy Bird Lady, I just have to include a tidbit about Peaches and Herb! Peaches laid a fourth egg today. She is staggering them in a weird way! She’s supposed to lay one egg per day and then start incubating them when the whole clutch is laid. Well, she started incubating two days ago. So I guess she is gonna have a train of babies born over the course of a week or some strange shit. Herb is super-excited to be a father. (Ya see how I tied that in to the post? Snazzy huh).
To all you fathers out there: Happy Father’s Day. I hope you can enjoy the day with loved ones and feel appreciated and cared for.
