Back To Reality

I can definitely tell that I am not in the Magical World Of Disney............
No fairy tales or Pixie Dust anywhere to be found.

It seems all there is around here is STRESS!!!!!!
Stress at home, stress at work....UGHHHHHH!!

While I was in Disney World my stomach and intestines were fine. I pretty much was able to eat what I wanted to, with only minor problems. I didn't go overboard with the spicy or fried foods, but I did eat french fries, hotdogs, chinese food, and ICECREAM. I love icecream and usually it does a number on my tummy. Every now and then I can sneak a bowl in without any problem, but usually dairy products kill me.

Anyway, as soon as I got back, reality and STRESS..........

It started with the phone. I am constantly telling Lindsey that she is on the phone too much. I know that she is a pre-teen girl and that is what they do, but I think the phone is permanently attached to her ear. I received my phone bill the other day and I knew that is was going to be higher than usual, because of Adam's trip to Mexico, but I sure never dreamed that it would be $728.00. Some of my rollover minutes expired and we used up all of the ones that I had left. The Mexico calls were high, but there were some charges that were really high (like one $45.00 charge for data transfer) and then all the text messages that my kids think they have to send. Add in all the overages that they charged us for the calls over our plan minutes and you have a $728.00 phone bill. My daughter alone talked 4,000 minutes. I love to talk, but 4,000 minutes a month..........I don't have that much to say.

At work, things are always behind when you come back from a vacation. I have spent the last week getting things caught up and now we are getting ready for inventory on May 7. Inventory is a task in itself. I have been pre-counting the jewelry in my department, which means, once it is counted if you sell anything or receive any new items that the counts have to be changed. So it takes longer to do the everyday things. Plus it's my job to keep a check of the counts, because the night time people don't always change the counts like they are supposed to.

Then we have my son, who over draws his checking account and comes to Mom for help. Nevermind that his rent is due in 2 days (which I pay). So I sent him to his Dad. Dad needs to help too, afterall, which he did. But then a day later I come home to find my son here at 5 pm when he should have been at work until at least 6pm. So I ask, "How come you are here so early?" He says,"You probably don't want to know." So I am thinking that he got fired. No..... he quit. He has two jobs thank goodness and has applied, interviewed and taken a drug test for a summer job at the Corvette Plant. I sure hope that he gets that one.
He got to work (his afterschool job) and they told him that they needed him to go to one of the other schools and that he may have to work there until the end of the school year. He has been there for quite sometime and felt like someone else should have to go instead, but they told him that it had to be him. So he quit. He didn't stop to think that they just might want to send him there because he has the most experience and that the others at that school are new employees.

Of course we can't leave out 2 sources of stress in my life. Michael and his son...........

They can be two of the most spoiled people on the face of the earth. The two of them have been so used to getting their way that it can really be a challenge to deal with them at times.
Am I ready to go back to Disney World or any other place far far away...........YES!!!!!!!!
Take me away.......
