Ahhhhh the holidays. Gosh the irony of the whole thing this year is just about to (wish there was a smily face icon wrapped in twine that unravelled himself insert here make whir noise) make me crazy. Thanksgiving Day I worked and what an eye opener. Twelve long hours of people throwing down, beating the snot out of each other, yelling, screaming, wanting to kill each other. It was the most ridiculous day I have spent there to date. I figured there may be accidents, or things like that. Lots of EMS calls for choking, and we saved lots of people from sudden death by eating too fast. But if we took 3000 calls? 2500 of them were for family arguments, fights, and neighbors calling about other neighbors parking on, or near their yards, and getting into fights OVER that. Honestly? Really people? You can't go out and just say? Could you move your car? Ugh. We did not celebrate the day. Why bother? After a day like that who wants to come home and have dinner? lol. I had Fruitloops planned. DF made broccoli soup and biscuits. This is the first year in a long time that I think we all "COULD" have been together....and yet...again we were not. So it got to me. K and the baby in Illinois. They're doing fine, except I don't think her and Dude are going to every get together. Her family hates him, and are begging her at every corner to never see him, never let the baby see him. He's in FL, and going to school for his GED, and has plans to go to college after....but his behavior and depression get the best of him and I swear I'd love to shake him until his teeth fall out. Ive never seen two kids who love each other or like each other and fight like they do. OVER THE PHONE...detach.....detach.....detach. (oh my word....I love them but they fight and then each one texts me and Im so glad I work 12 hour shifts) because usually by the time I'm done working it's blown over. Well this fight? He dropped that good old F bomb on her...followed by U....and it also included for whatever reason one for ME. Holy Coyotes.....what did I do? I got up at 4 am and wished him a Happy TUrkey day and said I love you. ??????? SOmehow her text got sent to me....and I am just gobsmacked. F me? Nice. Very very nice. Gosh mom I need XX for school can you help? Then nothing, then F U two weeks later??????? Hhhhhhhh.mph. I haven't gotten a word from her.....or him......and I don't think I'm going to send one either. I think she was trying to fwd the text to someone else and had a blonde moment......and now it's like OH CRUD.....she had sent me a picture of the baby before that. Uh huh.......bummer. Oddly enough - the day AFTER Thanksgiving......there WERE lots of accidents.....(and not just the F bomb fwd text) ......and it seems so IRONIC to me.......Lets all try to kill each other on Thanksgiving, get into HUGE family fights,,,,,,,,,then run to the mall and buy each other a lot of presents......because we LOVE ONE ANOTHER. (BLARGH) I told you------I really do like my dogs more than most people. I'm off to Petsmart......Santa Paws IS coming to town. The only poopin MY WAY those kids do is in the backyard where they're supposed to. And they don't text either.
