11:15 am - So much has happened...
since my last entry on June 14. The very next day my SO had an accident at work and broke his arm. I was in my OBGYN's office when my cell phone rang and I told them just to ignore it. "It's only my SO." I said, "He'll call back." He did call back, about 5 minutes later and told me that he had a broken arm and was on his way to the hospital. I called work and told them I wasn't coming back from lunch and I headed to the hospital. I called my dad on the way and told him what was going on and he said he'd meet me there. When I got to the hospital most of my in-laws were there and my dad and one of my brothers arrived shortly thereafter. I went into my SO's room to see how he was doing and his mom was in there with him. He was in a lot of pain and the drugs they'd given him weren't working. It was really hard to see him like that. I guess it really got to me because I started getting really warm and sweaty and my vision went blurry and I passed out!! His mom caught me before I fell over my SO's gurney and landed on his broken arm. The nurse gave her a wheel chair for me and told her to take me to the nurse's station. So we come out of the room, me passed out in a wheel chair! The whole family started freaking out and I started to come around. They brought me some water and the nurses took my vitals and brought me a Coke and some pudding. They wouldn't let me go back into his room after that because they didn't want me passing out again.

He ended up being transferred to another hospital for his surgery and has had 4 casts on in the last 7 weeks. This one should come off in a week and a half. I can't wait until he has use of both of his hands again. It feels like I've been doing EVERYTHING for the last 7 weeks. I don't mind it too much but I wish I felt a little more appreciated than I do. I don't think he realizes just how much I do each day. From getting the kids up and ready, working all day, picking the kids up, cleaning the house, cooking dinner, washing dishes, doing laundry, and giving the kids a bath... it all adds up. I don't have any time just for myself sometimes. There's times I'd like to just go to the bedroom and read a book or watch t.v. with no interuptions but I don't because I feel like I should be spending time with the kids. Argh! I've got to stop rambling!

current mood: stressed

1:56 pm - Work, work, and more work!
Will it ever end? I took Monday off and I was sick Tuesday so I left at noon. I'm leaving at 3:45 today but that's not soon enough. I've been running around all day from meeting to meeting and not getting anything accomplished. I have another meeting in 10 minutes and I really don't want to go... but I have to.

I'm so glad tomorrow is Friday. I plan to take the kids shopping Saturday to buy a Father's Day gift for their Daddy. He's going to be at work for a few hours on Saturday so that's the perfect time to go. Then we're going to a BBQ at a friend's house later that evening. We'll have to get a sitter though... it starts at 7:00 and I doubt we get home before midnight.

I had a wonderful Christmas. I took off work on the 22nd and didn't go back until the 27th! It was great. The kids had a great time too. Briana was soooo excited when Santa came! She got two Barbies, just like she asked for and tons of stuff from all her grandmas and grandpas.

New Year's Eve was rather un-eventful this year. We went to my brother's house and ate dinner, drank beer, and threw darts. We were home and in bed by 12:30... mainly because we had to pick up the kids at 8:30 and wanted to get some sleep!!!

I'm back at work now and don't really have a lot to do today because my boss is still gone. The week will probably start to pick up tomorrow though.

current mood: bored

I'm ready for the week to be over. I'm going to take Friday off work and get my Christmas shopping done. I haven't even started yet... how awful of me! I'm trying to get my Christmas cards sent out today but I don't know if I'll be able to do it. I have about 5 letters that I need to write and stick in the cards. I only have about 15 cards to mail and the rest of the people are getting e-cards! But I'm going to attach a couple of pictures to the e-cards so that's another thing I have to do!!!

current mood: very tired too!

I've had a really shitty week. Worse than usual too. I think that things are finally going to start turning around for me and BAM! Something happens to push me back down again. I'm getting really sick of it too. If it wasn't for Matt and the kids I'd probably just say, "Fuck it!" I'm at my wits end and don't know what to do. I'm not going to write about it anymore. There's not a damn thing I can do so just forget it.

current mood: pissed off

I've downloaded the software for updating this journal but it isn't working for some reason. I don't know what I did wrong but when the LiveJournal box pops up I put in my username and password and click on Login but my entry window never pops. Oh well. If it doesn't start working I'll just uninstall everything and forget about it.

current mood: aggravated
