It’s going to be a LONG DAY!

September 22, 2008

This weekend flew by.  Friday morning, I was up bright and early at 4:30am, and on the road heading to my home town by 6:30am.  One of my best friends got married on Saturday and I was in her wedding.  Some of the girls were meeting for breakfast at 9am on Friday, and of course I didn’t want to miss out.  So three TIRED hours in the car and I made it there by 9:15am, not bad.  We are breakfast, then went and got out nails done.  A lot of running around was done on friday, it was an extremely busy day.  Saturday was the wedding which was a lot of fun.  I’m not going into many details as I will save them for another post.  On Sunday, once again, up bright and early to be to my brothers by 12pm.  They had asked me to watch my nieces on Sunday as they too had a wedding to attend.  Of course, since I’m NEVER asked to watch them, I jumped at the opportunity.  My brother lives about 3 hours from my hometown, so it was another three LONG tired (not quite hungover but close) drive.  They got home from the wedding at 12:30am.  I sat and chatted a bit then, was on the road by 1am to drive home to my house.  I arrived at 2:30am, safe and sound.  but let me tell you…it was a LONG ASS Drive!  I had my brother pick me up coffee on their way home so I had something to keep me awake while driving.  I have been known to get extremely sleepy at the wheel, yes I have actually fallen asleep..it is very scary.  I got home, unpacked, made coffee for morning, brushed my teeth and was in bed by 3am.  With my alarms set for 5am, because yes I do have to work today, I prayed that I would fall asleep quick.  Hmm yeah that so did not happen.  At 4am, I was still tossing and turning and still WIDE awake.  I finally said screw it and came out on the couch, hoping I could sleep there.  Yes I dosed a little, but I didn’t really sleep.  It is now 5:55am, and I now have to get ready for work.  Dear GOD, I traveled about 500 miles this weekend, and I’m working on MAYBE 8 hours of sleep in 48 hours.  So yes I’m tired, yes today I will be dragging.  Please let me get through the day without my eyes slamming and my head bouncing on the desk!

Sorry…

Until then, I hope are all doing well….talk to you soon!

Where the hell have I been???

September 8, 2008

Now that is a LOADED question.

Life in my world has been absolutely crazy.  Basically, I’ve been busy helping one of my friends.  This is the friend with the baby, the one who HAD the bipolar boyfriend.  The one who’s boyfriend was abusive.  It’s been an absolute nightmare but it’s getting better.  At the end of August, my friend showed up with her baby at my door at 6am.  Why? you ask?  Well because her BF hit her, not once but twice!  The asshole!  She had no where else to go.  Thankfully, I was on vacation and she was able to come her.  So then it all began.

That day, we waited until her BF was out of the apartment, and went and did a “quick” packing up of necessities.  This was the final straw.  My friend decided enough was enough and is done with him.  The following day after all this took place, I went down to family court with her.  She just asked questions as to what to do. 

You know it’s easy for me to sit here and wonder, why didn’t she leave earlier? Actually, it’s easy for everyone.  But one thing I’ve realized, I’ve never been in an abusive situation, where the threats, were a reality, both verbally and physically.  I’ve never lived in fear.  I have no clue, I am no one to judge.  I’m just SO GLAD she has finally decided she was done and wants nothing to do with him.

I have tried to be available to her whenever she needs someone.  I’ve been going over to her mother’s house (which is where she is moving too) at least every other day. 

This past Saturday, we moved all her crap out of her apartment.  HOLY CRAP!  Talk about work!  It has been a long time since I’ve been that sweaty! Damn…if I didn’t lose a million pounds running up and down the stairs that day…I’d be surprised.  But we did it!! All in one day..she is offically moved out.  I’ll spare you all the drama, because in the end it means nothing.  Right now, she is completely free of this asshole.  She shut his phone off so he has no way to contact her unless it’s by payphone, which really, he’s way too lazy! 

The funny part is, On saturday (the day we moved her) one of my other friends, had invited me up for dinner.  I had told her I wasn’t sure if I would be able to go because of us moving. I told her I’d send her a text to let her know.  Well around 3ish, I sent her a text stating there was no way I’d be able to make it.  We had way to much to do and we weren’t nearly finished.  She then called me and stated, “YOU HAVE NO CHOICE!”  I was like why?  She then proceeded to tell me, she had planned a surprise bday party/cookout for me.  I was totally surprised.  I had no idea.  SO after moving 8 hours, I then had to leave and run home and shower and get ready.  To say I was beat is actually an understatement.  But I was excited too!  I get to their house on time, and was really surprised, because my parents were there as well.  They drove over 6 hours (to and from)  just to be there for my party.  They didn’t spend the night because they already had plans for Sunday and couldn’t cancel them, so they drove all the way down here for a couple of hours.  I thought that was so nice of them!  We had a great night!

There is plenty more to tell you about the past couple of weeks…but I’ll spare you all the details.  Let’s just say…it’s been crazy!  Ok?  We’ll leave it at that!
