Life recap

HerNameIsBuffy

775 views

Just checking in.  Have been crazy busy for the last month or so.  Doing what? (Asks no one...)

  • working long hours on the biggest project of my career.
  • dealing with the logistics of my divorce including now having to pump my own gas, which is ridiculous.
  • keeping a low profile so until I'm capable of communicating without bleeding my barely contained messy psyche over even innocuous comments.  (You're welcome)
  • coming to grips with my full blown Cinderella complex which is an affliction I've always had, but completely forgot about until it flared up and took over my life
  • getting slapped in the face with shitty messages from the universe which are crystal clear and unambiguous and even I can only ignore for so long before I need to accept.  And respond...

I'm sorry there is so much suckage in your life right now. Thinking happy thoughts for you and Hello Kitty cupcakes for your return.

Hello Kitty cupcakes make me smile no matter what.  I'm convinced I could be in the process of being murdered by a giant squid and still have a surge of happy if someone waved HK deliciousness at me.  :)

I'd chop the squid and make calamari for days! I'm from Jersey so pumping gas isn't my thing, either.

It's settled.  Cupcakes and maybe a knitted plushie. With glitter yarn.

I don't mind pumping gas/putting petrol in the car.  It's pumping up the tyres that I really hate.  And I'm so relieved that they check the oil and water at the yearly service so I don't have to,

But seriously, I hope that the universe gives you a break soon, buffy.  In the meantime, cupcakes sound like a good plan.  Hugs.  :hello-kitty-clap:  (I can never find the hug emoticon despite every other poster on fj finding multiple ones, but this one kind of looks like a hello Kitty is trying to hug you)

Note that the dadgummed thing is DEAD in this.  @HerNameIsBuffy may be perfectly reasonable in her fear of Squid 

Quote

Odori-don is a Japanese dish that literally means ‘dancing squid and rice bowl.’ Pouring soy sauce over a recently dead squid or cuttlefish makes it 'dance’ because although it is deceased, the tissues are still alive and reacting to the high sodium content.

Were that served to me idk if I'd be more horrified by it trying to murder me for the afterlife (squid zombie) or the fact that I would have just wet myself in public.

you win the Internet!

Giant hugs to Buffy. Sometimes life just sucks. I also hate pumping gas. I can't think of why, but I just do. 

The squid is going to give me nightmares. How could anyone EAT that?!!!!!!!!!

Kind of in the same boat. Having to now learn how to deal with my own finances b/c someone else has been doing it for me for the last 13 years. It really sucks. :tw_bawling:

I don't even know how to deal with the Internet going down or if the computer stops working or if eleventy hundred other things go wrong.

I told my fears to my daughter (who just turned 18 2 weeks ago), and she said: "Mom, it will be fine. We'll get a landline like no one has anymore and we'll get a fucking Mickey Mouse phone and we'll be fine." :pb_lol:

It will get better. Just remember that. It's hard right now, but it will get better.

   Buffy, thinking of you and wishing you the best. The weather will warm up soon and pumping gas won't suck as much! Your clever as fuck, and highly capeable. Don't forget that there are tons of internet strangers that care for you and your well being.

:hug: Buffy! So sorry that life sucks at the moment.

On another note - I learnt to drive here in Thailand at the age of 50 - and I don't KNOW how to pump gas - all stations here are full service - FSM help me if that ever changes.......

      They're going to come home losing the suit and it will be thrown out of court. I can see them all building cabins on the Duggar compound.

      Maybe Jill filed the lawsuit and she assumes it will take a long time to settle it. She will need to be nearby for the lawyer meetings, depositions and trial. She hopes that Derick will tire of waiting to go back so he either gets a real job or goes it alone with Jill staying here with the two children. And all of y'all thought Jill was dumb.

      What am I missing?  Why do people get stressed out?    Because they want to? Sincere question - not being an ass.  Just wondering

      Ha! You don't get stressed out because you want to- it just happens. Personally, I'm a very type-A person. I need to plan things or I'll be stressed. And I'm a natural caregiver. I like feeding people, entertaining people, and if they're not having a good time, then I feel as if I've failed, somehow. Maybe some people view that as foolish, but if I'm throwing a party, I just want everyone to be happy and have fun. I also despise being the center of attention. And I have a massive, somewhat judgmental Catholic family. I would probably stand up to them to get what I want, but come on, at any age, having a dozen people badger you about everything you're doing wrong is stressful. Especially when they're the people who are supposed to be on your side and support you. Not to mention the drama that can arise- and before people say to cut the dramatic people out of the wedding/my life, I love them dearly despite their flaws and would want them to be there to celebrate with me. So the idea of throwing any kind of event or party, especially one focused on me, that's a direct reflection of myself, is stressful.

      Y'all underestimate my crazy.

      OMG that's Katie with Addie right?  She looks like a completely differently person from the dragged down, bedraggled, sad-eyed, constantly pregnant Katie of old.  

      She may have 7 children but in the photo she looks and is dressed  like a normal (non-fundie) mom

      8 children. 

      And she lost 175lbs of useless dead weight overnight. I imagine that must feel pretty good :my_angel:

      I kept my maiden name as my second middle name, partly because I like having that tie to my family of origin, and partly because I work in higher education and my degrees are in my maiden name. So at work I'm Jane Smith, but my full email signature has Jane B. Doe Smith...but if and when I get a job at another place I'll probably do Jane B. D. Smith.

      I swear it's not as complicated as it seems by my description haha, and I really like the combination of my 4 initials.
