Definately Worth $9.00

I did end up taking R something for lunch on Saturday. Which. he. didn't. even. eat. Until Sunday. I guess I tried.

I did, however, use the trip as an excuse to treat myself and the kids to McDona*d's drivethru. I got a happy meal for T1, a cheeseburger meal for me (since I wasn't really SUPPOSED to eat anything but SOFT foods) and chicken nuggets for T2, figuring he would just share my french fries.

I should have gotten him his own fries. He ate nearly ALL of mine. He loved them so much that he tried to eat the ones that had fallen on the floor and had been thrown in the trash. I'm sorry I didn't get a picture of him. He seriously had one in his mouth and one in each hand all at the same time.

It was priceless.

Men can be such assholes sometimes! I came home yesterday from running errands around 11:00 am. R was nowhere to be found, even though he had been home when I had left a few hours before. I figured he was out running errands of his own and puttered on the computer and then fixed lunch for me and T2. My mom called while we were eating, we went shopping later in the day and returned home around 6:00 pm. R is still nowhere around. I called his cell phone and got voice mail. I left a quick message and decided I wasn't going to bother him any more than that.

My jaw started hurting quite a bit before I went to bed last night so I put off doing most of the housework I had intended to do. Around 3:00 this morning R came home drunk, made tons of noise and collapsed next to be in bed on his back. Of course within minutes he's snoring and I can't make him roll over. My tooth sockets were aching so I got up and took something and finally fell asleep only to be awakened by R stomping around the house at 6:30. In the process he woke T2 up meaning the end of my sleep so I got up and fed him.

At this point R is still noticably drunk. He put a pot pie in the microwave and never went back to it so it was soggy and ruined, woke everyone up and then proclaimed he was leaving for work. I told him I hoped they fired his ass for showing up to work drunk, but he didn't listen.

I think I'll get around this morning and go to my parent's house to visit. I don't feel like telling him 'I told you so' when he comes home all pissed off about getting fired.

**update: R called me a little while ago and wanted me to take him something to eat and drink. I told him I would but that it would be awhile and he then said to forget it. No mention about anyone noticing he was a bit under the weather, so I don't know. I guess it could be much worse, but I still don't like it. I think we're going to wait until tomorrow to go to my parent's tho, cause I want to watch NASCAR on their big-screen TV!

A Few Words of Wisdom

My wisdom teeth are gone and my right jaw feels as if I've been punched in the face. The doctor said he had a little trouble getting all of the one that had been causing me so much pain. Not much of a surprise, since it was more cavity than tooth. Apparantly the root broke off unexpectedly and caused the wisdom tooth to damage to the molar in front of it. He attempted to get the root but decided it was too close to the nerve and left it there instead. Now when I go back to the dentist next month she'll have to repair the molar when she fills it. **sigh**

On a lighter note, the weather here has been perfect the last few days. It has been brisk in the early morning and cool during the day. Makes me want to get out the hot cider and cuddle up with a good book! The kids are loving it too. Trevor goes to the door and points outside whenever someone goes anywhere near going out. He loves discovering the leaves and feeling the cooler air on his face. And Tyler, well, he just likes getting rid of all the excess energy he has. If he isn't riding his bike he's attempting to learn how to skateboard. (And he isn't half bad either, if I do say so myself). It won't be long and he'll be doing tricks at the local skatepark I fear.

Well, I'm off to find something interesting to read before bed. Toodles!

Looking up

Well things are starting to look up for us some. R has found a temporary job that is scheduled to last about 8 weeks and since it doesn't pay great, he will likely get to keep part of his unemployment benefit too.

The kids are at the moment at least both healthy and I have a WIC appointment for T2 on Tuesday to take advantage of the WIC foods and such. I have been told that they will assist with filling out the paperwork for the state-funded insurance program (All-Kids) too, so soon I can stop worrying about that also.

The only bad thing right now is that I have a horrible cavity in one of my wisdom teeth so after a trip to the dentist resulted in a referral to an oral surgeon to have all of my remaining wisdom teeth removed, I am going in on Wednesday to have it done. I'll be out of commission for at least a day and off work for 2 1/2 days, but at least after I recover I'll be pain free!

Update on the Williams Summer Home

T1 is now 8 years old. We didn't really have a big birthday party for him, but that's another story. He made out pretty well, much better than he expected I think.

T2 is 13 months old and starting to get a little attitude. He has very annoyingly (and sometimes terrifyingly) taken to throwing himself on the floor when he doesn't get his way. This is either very early 'terrible twos' or mimicing what he sees the other children do at daycare. Last week was their last week, so if it was the latter it should hopefully cease soon.

R and I are now married and have settled into a comforting normalcy. This is probably due more to the fact that he's not working and less to us being married, however. He has also decided that he wants to be home with us every night, so no more over-the-road truck driving if he can help it. I'm excited because for the last 8 years I've felt like a single mom. Now I'll have someone who can help out with the kids and give me a break now and then.

So that's our update! More later, I hope.
