Maybe I can stay over at your place tomorrow after I vacuum.

Thanks for the thought, though!!!

To The Raging Hose Beast Known As My MIL,

F:censored:k you. F:censored:k you with a pine cone placed on top of a porcupine with a huge roll of sandpaper attached to said porcupine.

We have asked you to help us out with Child Rum 2 times in 2 months. Both times you said "no".

You said no even though you tell us to call you when we need help and we can't find anyone else.

Also, you were at BIL#1's house last night? Practically all day? WTF? Doesn't BIL# live like 1-1.25 hours away from you? And you say that the 2 hours away from us is "too far" for you to drive?

I told Mr. Rum last night that we are never ever ever ever going to call you in regard for help with Child Rum ever again.

January 8 (this upcoming Saturday) will be the only time you will see Child Rum for the entire year of 2011. (If I can arrange it). Hope you like seeing your middle granddaughter.

Also, I've let Mr. Rum know that he can go down to your house on the evening of the 7th to help you with putting up your artificial Christmas tree. Child & I will be arriving separately on the morning of January 8 (late) and we'll be leaving early. Without or without Mr. Rum following us in his car.

So :mad: I can hardly see straight any more,
Rummy

You're an idiot. A complete idiot with no missing parts at all. You're willing to miss out on the awesomeness that is Child Rum? I hope all the shows you want to watch are reruns of the ones you've already seen.

Dear Rads,

Thank you for the nice words. :)

I try not to let it bother me, but I'm mad for daughter's sake. Though mercifully with her autism, she's so much in to her own world, she doesn't know that her Grandma is shafting her.

*le sigh*

My mom & dad both think that even Mr. Rum shouldn't go down to his mother's house on the 7th to help put up the tree (which will be up for one day - for the benefit of the kids 'cos you know ... opening christmas-themed wrapped presents isn't enough of a give-away that we're celebrating Christmas :rolleyes:). We should just show up at the same time that the other sons and their families will be showing up.

I don't know ... she's his Momma, and he told her last night on the phone that he'd be down. :shrug:

To TRHB aka MIL,

Really?

Really!?

Really????

You can't be bothered to help me when I needed a second body to sit in the backseat of my car so I could get daughter home from the dentist yesterday? (BG: Daughter was sedated to get dental work done: 2 cavities filled, 2 other teeth sealed, x-rays done, sedative was just to make her less anxious during the procedure). Dentist office recommended 2 people come with said patient so one could sit in the back to make sure the patient doesn't get sick, or pass out and choke on their vomit, or whatever.

But nooooooo ... you couldn't do that.

But you're willing to watch Child Rum while Mr. Rum & I go visit a new winery in the area you live?

WTF?

WTH is wrong with you?

You think I'm going to ever let you watch her?

F:censored:k you.

Dinner is at 4 PM on Saturday and gift opening is before that? Don't expect me or Child at your house until 1 or 2 PM.

Wishing she could just skip everything on Saturday,
Rummy

You're right, she doesn't deserve Child Rum at all.

Hubs doesn't understand why I'm ready to break all contact with his mother. (Just me, I'm not saying "If you loved me, you'd break off all contact with her too", I'd never do that as she is his mother).

I'm angry on Child's behalf, not my own. She keeps giving us the shaft.

No more of it.

Dear Rads,

Mr. Rum & I had a discussion about him getting shafted by his parents last night. (Coincidence, yes?)

He said he needed to take his bike rack down to his dad's workshop & have his dad help him fix it. I told him I'd rather him take it any place else but his dad's workshop. Mr. Rum was confused as to why I'd say that because the work would be free with his dad. I told him and I quote: "Nothing is ever "free" with those two. And besides, even if you gave your dad plenty of time to know that you're coming down with the thing, once we waste the 2 hours to get there, he'll make one excuse after another about why he can't help right now. And it's just that attitude that they take with you and it spills over to their relationship with Child Rum. You might not mind being shafted, but I don't like it when it comes to her."

(Yeah, wonky segue, but you know what? It pisses me off that they give him the shaft and. he. lets. it. slide. because he doesn't want to "make waves". :rolleyes:)

He told me that I was being a bitch, but I pointed out I was being a Momma Bear and I was tired of sitting in the corner while they "grew bored" with our daughter because she doesn't come when she's called and would rather be doing anything besides sitting down with his parents and having to answer questions that she doesn't know how to answer.

*le sigh*

Sorry for the venting,
:ashamed:

Dear Apartment Complex Office,

You are legally required to provide enough heat so that it is a minimum of 68 degrees in here between 6am and 11pm, and 65 overnight. We have the heater turned up as high as it goes, and if we're lucky, the thermometer occasionally reads 68. When I get up in the morning at 6:30 it's usually 63-64 degrees. When I got home from work at 6pm tonight it was 66. I don't know if it's the shitty insulation or you just don't have the heat up high enough, but I am going to call you tomorrow and I want it fixed. I am not going to spend the winter shivering under 5 layers of blankets. And you better not try to suggest (like you did last year) that I have the thermometer too close to the window (it's not) or that I'm blocking too much of the heater with furniture (it is not possible to not block part of the heater, unless we move all the furniture into the middle of the living room, and we pulled the couch out several inches on the one wall, and the entire front wall of my bedroom is unblocked).

It would be sad for my infant nephew to lose his mother but in the long run it would be better for him, so he doesn't grow up to be a lazy, stupid, entitled, vindictive, greedy, controlling POS like you.

Drop dead,

Ana

PS I know this sounds just terrible, but here's a taste: when my brother wouldn't pay her outrageous cell phone bill because he had no job and no money, she sent him pictures of his baby son with the caption "Daddy I hate you". And that's the tip of the iceberg, believe me.

I might lose more if I were to actually do more than an occasional mosey (a really slow walk), but for this week (at least), I can barely do even that. :(

I hope to do more exercise starting next week. I might go from mosey to an actual slow walk. But! I have been eating more fruits and vegetables and cutting back on fast food and soda.

Going really slowly,

Dear RP & Peppergirl,

Thank you for the encouragement!

You know PG - you & Taboo & Jack T. Chance need to move closer to me so I can get my very slow walking in. That way I don't look silly walking so slow around the neighborhood. :lol:

And Mr. Rum is obsessing about my weight ... AGAIN. I can't tell if it's because he's genuinely concerned about my health, or because all of a sudden, he's lost over 170 pounds and now he hates everything/one fat.

Love,
Rummy
-------------------------------------------
Dear BE,

My thoughts exactly!

I had to wait for the bus in almost-waist-high snow and then when the bus was discontinued for my area, walk in it.

This was Nebraska. With its horrendous snowstorms. In the 80s. When I was much much younger.

But do you know what's even worse?

The parents who drive less than half a block, in the fall/summer and keep their kids in the car until the last possible second to keep their kids in their air conditioned car. :rant:

Too much mollycoddling for me.

Feeling old now,
Rummy

iradney
01-15-2011, 01:56 PM
Dear Rummy

Weight loss is actually 80% eating and 20 % exercise. You also don't want to injure yourself by doing too much too soon. The fact that you're going on walks is a BIG thing, and by the end of the year, you will be walking faster and further than you thought you could!
It's baby steps. This month you may just walk around the block, but next month, you might walk a block and a half. If you carry on like that, by the end of the year you'll be doing over 6 blocks in December. That's alot!

Love
Rads

Dear Rummy,

When I was in elementary and middle school, my bus stop was in front of my neighbor's driveway directly across the street from my house. If the weather was bad, or just really cold, we watched out the front door until we saw the bus coming then ran out across the yard. When my brother (2 years older) was in middle school, the stop was moved to a house down the street, and only once do I recall my mother driving down to meet the bus, and that was during a windy, torrential downpour.

In high school, my parents drove us in the morning, only because we lived a half mile from the school and all left at the same time. My brother took the bus home; I walked, 10-15 minutes, depending on the weather and how fast I felt like walking. (We only got a bus in the first place because we live just inside Town Township and the school is in Town Boro, and the sidewalk only extends to the Boro line, and if you live outside the Boro they have to provide a bus.) The bus stopped at the end of the street and we had to cross the highway and walk to the house from there (third house from the end).

How I ever survived, I'll never know. :rolleyes:

-BE

PS, sometimes when I stop at Starbucks on my way to work, as I come down the road to get back to the one that takes me to the town I work in, I see a minivan at the end of one of the side streets, waiting for the school bus. These kids are high school age.

"Dear" MotherRum & SisterRum,

Please stop arguing and making me be in the middle!

I'm the one who is supposed to get mad and throw things and ignore everyone's phone calls.

So Mom decided to bail and not come over to your house when she said she would. I was over there with breakfast just for the two of us. She didn't want to be a third wheel.

Mom, you should have called and not just decide to not to come over.

Please, both of you ... grow up the :censored: up and let me be the dysfunctional one in the family. If not, I'm going to have a nervous breakdown and you'll have to visit me while I'm in a padded room.

Dear Everyone,

I am a bad Momma.

Child Rum was screaming, crying, sitting in her chair and pushing it hard against my buffet table, wouldn't settle down, wouldn't listen, and Mr. Rum wasn't much use.

I had stuff I was going to take to my Mom & Dad's house tomorrow. I grabbed the bag of said stuff, grabbed keys & purse, and drove to my Mom & Dad's house.

It was so easy opening the door and leaving. I could have gone anywhere and no one would have been the wiser.

Mr. Rum didn't call my parents to le them know I was coming over. He didn't even call me at any time to see if I was okay.

When I came home, Child Rum was all lovey and huggy and kissy and telling me that she missed me.

I'm at the end of my rope ...

Dear AnaKhouri,

Thank you for that.

Apparently, as soon as I left, she calmed down, did her homework, and was back on the laptop watching videos.

I think me leaving shocked/scared her. Also calmed her down too.

And Mr. Rum understood I was frustrated. As soon as she got off the bus, she was screaming about wanting to go to Chuck E. Cheese (fundraiser for the school night - Chuck E. Cheese made it to her school and that riled her up).

But yeah, he had to deal with her by himself. He's becoming lazy again. He's been shirking his "Daddy Time" a lot lately. I'm going to have to put my foot down again.

You have been running this database multiple times a day for at least 2 years. I do not understand why this is so difficult. The second shift is not having a problem figuring this out.

Dear Ana,
Totally wish I did. lol. He started walking when he was 9 months old. And we were going through some hellacious stuff during that time. Things have just finally started calming down. My fiance's family went psycho on me. and we decided to move to Indiana with my mother. And the my grandmother died, then my fiance's step father goes all internet stalker on me. then christmas. So it was a crazy crazy year. Am just now starting to lose the baby weight.

Mono,

Dear everyone,

I was totally emo last night on FB. One of my friends had unfriended me and it hit home that I have no friends here. I understand that my friends from Omaha are moving on with their lives. That I am not a part of it because I am not there. It just hurts. When I was younger and an air force brat I moved all the time. Losing the friends hurt but it was a quick pain simular to ripping off a band aid. but with FB I am seeing them drop off one by one.

I am just feeling so very isolated. I stay at home with the kids all day. My step father is always here but he almost never leaves his bed. My fiance seems to always be closing and sleeping. Ive been alone the past 6 nights in a row. Luckily he is off today. And my mother stayed at a hotel close to work the past couple days because of the blizzard. So its just been me and the kids. I tried texting people but no one really wants to talk. And even if my motehr was not at the hotel she gets off work at 8 and therefore not really company. I just feel so alone.

emo and lonely,
Mono.

AnaKhouri
02-04-2011, 05:37 PM
Dear mono,

That sucks! It's really easy to become isolated when you're a stay at home mom, and I guess if the weather is really bad you can't get out either. But when it gets nicer maybe you can take the kids to library story time or find a mothers' club or something. Like today I took Khan to the mall to play at the indoor play area there and we went to lunch. You HAVE to get out of he house at least 3 or 4 times a week.

I think if the people at Cici's Pizza knew how much he ate, they would change their policy of letting kids under 3 eat for free.

Dear <coworker>,

Don't you ever get tired of talking? You chatter constantly from the time you arrive at 8:00 am until you leave at 4:30. You don't talk about work, and you never have anything interesting to say. Nobody cares whether your cousin's daughter picked the blue strapless dress or the pink off-the-shoulder dress for the dance. And don't try to draw me into the conversation. I don't want to talk to you about horror movies. And don't presume to tell me what kind of movie I would like when you know nothing about my taste in movies. Just shut up for 10 lousy minutes.

Sincerely,

Ghel

Dear MotherRum,

Just because I take Child Rum to Hooters, and Denny's, and let her stay at the ARC for 4.5 hours, does not mean I have to stop taking her there and to other places.

She has strep throat.

I doubt Hooters served a side of strep throat along with the chicken wings, or Denny's added it to the pancakes, or when she was at the movies, they added it to her popcorn.

Please. Your logic has made me break my brain. :cry: It's the only brain I have. And now I have to use superglue or something to put it back together.

No more logic from you MotherRum!

Your Daughter,
Rummy

Dear Dalesys,

I'm glad I wasn't drinking while reading what you just wrote. :roll:

Yes, my mom has strange ideas. If it were up to her, Child Rum would only leave the house to go to school and then come back home. We can't take her out at all.

Dear Rummy,

Here this might come in handy. *Hands a tube of brain glue* It's better than superglue.

*wondering* Did mother Rum keep all her children at home forever when they got sick? if so how did anyone ever meet and create Child Rum? How horrible would the world be without the wondrous Child Rum? GRRRRRRRRRRRR to mother Rum !


Ponderingly,

Pepper

Dear Shpepper,

When I was growing up, the only time we ever ate out, was when we either went to the Officer's Club (when my mom's parents came to visit - Papo was a retired Air Force Officer) at Offutt Air Force Base, or when we'd go to either Lum's or Country Kitchen after church. Always on a Sunday. Otherwise, no eating out.

I moved out of the house when I was 28. If I hadn't done that, I doubt Mr. Rum & I would have met and married. And then the world would be deprived of Child Rum (though with her meltdown last night, I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have missed Child Rum, momentarily, - all her anger was directed at me - nothing like getting pelted with anything & everything Child Rum could get her hands on *le sigh* - yeah, not a pretty sight).

Anyway, MotherRum thinks I should bubblewrap Child Rum before I let her out. Doesn't help that when she was 6 months old she got Respiratory syncytial virus or RSV (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0002531) and was in the P.I.C.U. for 2.5 weeks. It was touch & go & we possibly could have lost her forever.

But we didn't. But MotherRum is still nervous. But I can't see hiding Child Rum forever in the house.

Mebbe I'm wrong?

Don't get me all excited about a MMPORG, promise that we'll play it together, and then spend the ENTIRE WEEKEND playing it with your friend!!!
Playing it with the same friend that you played LoTR Online, Age of Conan, HON, Dota and god knows what else MMPORGs with. Would it kill you to just have a game where we actually play as a couple? You know, kind of like Fallen Earth, but where we actually PLAY TOGETHER instead of playing the same game at the same time, but at different levels and at different parts of the map? WTF dude? I'm spending money on something I don't ordinarily spend it on!

Dear Everybody,

Child Rum is having an MRI on March 25, 2011. She will also be having blood work done at the same time. She will be given anesthesia to knock her out for the MRI. (She won't be able to lay still for 45 to 60 minutes).

I'm going to be a nervous wreck during the time before the date of the MRI, the actual day of the MRI, and the weeks following before I get the results.

:cry:

I was very very good these past couple days. I have apologized for wrongs that I did not do. I have made baked goods and food for a greaving widow. I have encouraged Fi to reconsile with his mother. I have been as nice and as good as I can possibly be these past couple months. I have not gotten all bridezilla when things went wrong int he wedding planning. I have been quite calm.

Can I have my reward be that the Mamma Drama goes away. Am so tired of feeling like a Drama Llama. So tired of the Harassment, the Stalking, the whole everything. I didn't even do what I am being punished for.

Please excuse me while I curse for about ten minutes straight.

Dear CS people.

I made a mistake. I used internet exploer on this computer instead of mozilla. Did not notice for a couple minutes. The thing is, my mother used internet exploer and it was logged into her FB account. noticed that the Future mother in law was posting about how she got the wedding invatation. Her friends and family chimed in about how aweful it must be to have her son marrying me.

Mom told me she was posting passive agressive stuff about the whole situation on FB. I didn't notice that they were saying such hateful things about me. Saying they were sent a invite so I would get a gift. UGH! I didn't want to send them an invite. It was my mother's idea.

SO angry,

The woman is crazy and her husband is creepy. He has been harassing me and sending me emails from made up email address basically internet stalking me. Last one was from when I visited Omaha a few weeks ago saying that he saw me and I looked fat.

Can't she just go away and leave us alone?

Dear Mono

Let me get this straight - she just "invited" herself over? Didn't ask, wasn't invited? That's freaking RUDE. I highly reccomend Fiance mail her back and say "I'm afraid that won't be possible. We have plans this weekend and are unable to change them at such short notice. In future, please call and check our availability."

As it's FIANCE's mom, he needs to take care of it, otherwise you're that "interfering bitch that stole her BABY". Don't tell her what the plans are (lying around the house in your jammies COUNT AS PLANS), just keep repeating "I'm afraid that won't be possible".

Good luck

*warning incoming whine. You may skip, I just need to say this to someone and I can't bitch to mom or hubby, they get enough of this*

Dear Life in general,

I hate you. I really shouldn't be this miserable. I am betting that I am just about to start (which one shouldn't get the week before their birthday) and it is making me moody and cranky. But I am just sick of this crap. At this point I just want to curl up and cry. Nothing helps.

I want my life back. I want to get away with the hubby (won train tickets want to use them) but be dammed if I can get vacation around here. Hell I would take vacation just to be able to clean my house. But since there are 5 of us at work (at most) I can't just stay home. And since I work with morons of the highest order I have a nightmare to come back to. And we can't get away, they just call us if something breaks. We lost a quarter of one vacation to this place. I don't know how I think we can go to either England or Disney World.

So to the cat (believe that someone is in charge, be it man woman or cat (leaning towards the cat) in charge, could you maybe knock it off. I want to have a life, not this miserable thing that I have right now.

Els the cranky one

Dear Kilt Boy-

I am pissed at you right now. Why you may ask? Because I spent all day with you today. Or rather I should say I spent all day at your house. In your room. On the Internet. While you were in the other room with your housemate playing Pokemon or WOW. For 6 hours. I got you for 45 minutes to watch an episode of Doctor Who and even that was split by dinner. Then you brought me back to my dorm to do homework at 9:30 at night.

There are several things wrong with the above paragraph. Let's play 'find the fuck up' shall we?

1. Ignoring the hot chick who wants to jump your bones who is lying in your bed and that you haven't seen in a week and probably won't see for another week and a half or so.

2. Actually lets re-read 1. and let that sink in for a minute.

3. The homework you had is several days late and frankly should have been done instead of WOW. When you have time for a game or me while I'm up there because of homework I should win out.

4. I had my laptop and was already working on my homework when you kicked me out. We've both done homework together before but apparently I had to leave tonight.

This? This is why gamer guys have a hard time keeping girls. Not because we don't want them or don't find them attractive. But because no one likes playing second fiddle to a fucking pixel.

Get the Hint?
Shanky.

BamaBabe
04-07-2011, 06:21 AM
Dear Shanky,

Take a deep breath, then tell Kilt Boy to fuck off. If he hasn't gotten the hint by now, he never will. Why waste your time and hotness?

Go forth and be awesome.

Dear Mono

Now it's time to call the invited and ask if they are indeed coming or not. I had a similar issue with a few of our guests as well. If they didn't RSVP at all, I marked them as a no, and told TTO that they would be booted from the venue if they dared to show up.

*HUGS* It sucks though. It's terribly rude and inconsiderate when people don't RSVP :(

Love

I totally started the calling yesterday. mostly because I am irritated I spent the money on the response cards and I want them used. Should have listened to Nate and not done them.

I don't care who all shows up. Its a city park bbq wedding. I have enough food to feed double what I expect to come. Heck if any of you guys are in the area......

Go Cake!

Dear Rads,

I am sorry that you are missing cake too.

Why do you hate me?

Child Rum is sick with fever and stuffy nose and it's spring break!

I need to take her out so she can run around and exhaust herself.

Instead, she's now cooped up inside, driving me crazy, and I'm in desperate need of rum ... er .. .coffee.

Dear Child Rum's School,

I've been asking for the past 2 years to have Child Rum placed in Summer School (aka Extended School Year). For 2 years running, you said she didn't need it, but if we wanted to pay $400, we could enroll her on our dime.

NOW you're telling me that she needs it this year for reading and math?

WTF?

Dear Becks, Mono, and Kanalah,

Thank you! Virtual Rum does work wonders. :D

Actually, now Child Rum is feeling so much better after 2 doses of Children's Advil and Children's Dimetapp. She has miraculously recovered and can do anything she wants.

Yeah, she'll run down in a few hours.

And then she'll be crying and throwing things again.

Hoping she does get better quickly,
Rummy
---------------------------
Dear Becks,

At least this year, it's free for her to go Summer School for ummmm ... 2 weeks(?). I think it's 2 weeks. June 27 to July 15. And right smack dab in the middle of that is her scheduled eye surgery (to get her cataract removed from her eye).

Worried,
Rummy
---------------------------
Dear Kanalah,

My daughter is a fair-to-middling-to-high-functioning autistic child. My mother potty trained her in one week. Actually, it was less than a week. I left her with my mom on a Thursday and by the following Monday she had daughter potty trained. (Daughter was 4 when she was officially potty trained).

You can either ship child to my mom's house (don't you love how I just militarily volunteered her? :D) or follow my mother's method which is: Follow child all over house. If child looks like they're going to go potty in their pull-ups (or diaper), immediately place them on the toilet. Let them sit at least 5 minutes at a go.

Child Rum now only has an occasional accident (i.e., if she's really engrossed in something and doesn't realize or if she doesn't go potty right before going to bed, and even then, in the 3-almost-4 years of her being potty trained, I can count on maybe 2 hands how many accidents she's had).

But don't forget: You're a Momma. And Momma Determination is the best determination to have!

Encouragingly,
Rummy

Dear Rummy,

I'll try that. I think her main problem right now is that she doesn't realize she's actually doing anything until she's already done it. But we're going to try just putting regular clothes on her and see if we can get her to understand that wet pants = bad.

You can be a butthead sometimes, you know that?

Child Rum has been doing the listening therapy for 2.5 weeks and she's doing more imaginative play and becoming more interested in other things that are age appropriate. How can you NOT attribute it to the listening therapy?

Sometimes I want to do: :runaway: 'cos you're driving me crazy.

Dear Life, Child Rum, God,

Is this some kind of conspiracy against me? Designed to drive me crazy?

For 2 days Child Rum has been taking the antibiotic for her ear infection. She was fine. This morning, I give it to her, and she immediately throws it up? I'm going to have to call the doctor on duty this weekend to ask for advice.

*le sigh*

:cry:
Rummy
------------------------------
Dear Child Rum,

Mommy's sorry that she made you take that strawberry medicine again, but the doctor told me I had to!

You threw it up. I'm waiting for a new prescription for you so I can get you more medicine. One that (hopefully) doesn't make you throw up.

At least now we've found at least one med you can't take!

Looking on the bright side,
Mommy Rum

Dear (not-so)BFF-(right now): I am so sick of this behavior. You do this every time I get real and tell you what I really feel about something. Why can't you accept that this is how I'm feeling right now and you don't have to fix it? Why do you take it personally that I don't need you to fix it? I just need you to listen. The stereotype is that women understand that concept, but you've thrown that one out on its ear. So thanks for bailing on me this morning; I've been feeling bad all day now. And to think, you told me I am not a good friend. At least I can listen and not absorb, but just be there. Just ask B.

2. Your bedroom is on the 3rd floor (top floor of our townhouse)
3. Do we even try to go out the house through a window?
4. Doors are the ONLY way to get out of the house (unless there's a fire and you have to jump/climb out the window, but even then, it'll be dangerous).

Fortunately your Daddy came home and did not go to the gym. I hope to God that the window lock he bought will work.

DEar Cs.Com folks,

I can't do this. I just keep slipping and slipping back into everything else that's NOT work because it helps me "stress less." People want me to "stress less" but they don't realise that in order for me to do that, I have to pinpoint EVERYTHING down to the nth degree. I have to organise time for EVERYTHING. I have to set aside time for uni work, I have to set aside time for stress relief, I have to set aside precise times for friends and family, because if I don't, then I do too much of one and not the other. And then when I don't do enough of what I have to do, I get stressed because of that. Which causes me to be fat. Which then causes me to freak out and to need to slim down. It just keeps going and going. And if this is what's "normal" stresses, then I give up.

Morning comes at 9 or 10, what is this 7 stuff this morning? You know that I will be a raging B all day today right?

Want more sleep,
mom.

Dear new husband,

Do you remember how much of a jerk you were when you quit smoking? Why have you decided to take it back up? This is not ok.

Angry,
Mono.

Dear Prosciutto,

I :love: you.

I :love: you just out of the package, and I pull a strip off and just eat you, washing it down with a slice of cantalope.

I :love: you with a side helping of Child Rum eating a piece along with me.

I especially :love: you wrapped up in a white flour tortilla with just a miniscule amount of mayonnaise in it.

Happily,
Rummy

Dear Becks,

Thank you for the hugs. I've had a very bad weekend. It wasn't pretty. Especially this morning when I broke down crying because the tops of my feet and ankles were incredibly swollen. I have to watch what I eat. Keep my legs elevated whilst sitting and sleeping. And I need to start mall walking again - everything had stopped swelling so much.

Plus, I think my depression has returned - with a vengeance.

Dear Mono,

Don't come to Virginia. The state's slogan should be: "If you come here without allergies or asthma, you will leave here with at least one of them."

I just need to take better care of myself. (Like taking my advair 2 times a day like I'm supposed to for instance).

Which reminds me: I didn't take it this morning. :ashamed:

Stop being infected.

Dear Becks,

Try adding Neosporin to the mix. I clean my ears/earrings with rubbing alcohol, smear neosporin on my ears (especially the back of my ears), then peroxide/neosporin the earrings. Earrings will get slippery.

Hope this helps!

Dear Becks,

The Neosporin thing is something I follow since seeing a doctor about my ears. Turns out, I'm allergic to nickle. Now, even if they say "Nickle Free" and "For Sensitive Ears", I still do the Neosporin smear.

Hoping it works for you,
Rummy

PS As for the swelling of the feet: Welcome to my world. You might need to see a cardiovascular specialist or even a cardiologist. Might be a circulation problem. Go to your General Practitioner first and see what they recommend. When I went to my cardiologist, the first words out of his mouth were: "Did you know you have a heart murmur?" Yeah, not a fun time. :cry: Or you could be like my mom and the heat makes you swell?
-----------------------------------------------------
Dear Mono,

If toddler won't sleep, try playing Marilyn Manson music. Or other artists similar to Marilyn Manson. What you're looking for is the deep bass, drumming type of music. Puts children to sleep quickly. At least it used to put Child Rum to sleep.

Dear Mom,
I am doing the best I can to get my car fixed. I make 8 bucks an hour with a host of other responsibilities on top of getting the car fixed, such as rent, electricity, and fucking EATING. I know its inconvenient, its inconvenient for me as I hate driving your car, but please don't act like I am not doing anything about it, especially when I spent over 200 dollars today. It will only serve to piss me, and you won't like it when I get pissed off, and it is an argument you ultimately will lose.

Love,

Do not ever scare me like that again! I thought you got out of the house and I went hysterical. It wasn't pretty. I called my mom in tears. I had a breakdown on the phone with my Mommy over you. And Mr. Rum was mad at me because I couldn't watch the back door and Child Rum and him and the two of you cats (I have Kyra Rum aka the The Girl Cat, but she doesn't try to run out the door).

And all the time you were under the couch.

Please let me know the next time you hide under there I don't freak out.

Dear Coworker,
Don't make blanket assumptions and apply it to me. Not all long distance relationships fail. In the four months I've been with my boyfriend our relationship has been solid. Much more solid then my relationship with my ex when we were doing the long distance thing. And I talk to my boyfriend less cause he actually has a life unlike the ex.
Angrily,
Me

Ps: just cause one of my closest friends is a guy *does not* mean I wanna get in his pants. Or that I want him to get into mine. I have a boyfriend for that.
