So jacob wasn’t feeling well when we got up this morning and I debated on if I should go to work or not, but he seemed to get better once he finally ate.
Then my manager phoned to tell me it was such a slow day today that she only had two clients booked in the afternoon and I had nothing so if I wanted I could take a voluntary day off. She assured me she wasn’t cutting my hours but there was no point in me coming in if there was nothing to do. So now I’m sitting here w a kid that seems to be fine now and nothing to do. Maybe ill take and vacuum the porch and work on my cross stitching project and then have a nap w jacob and then take him outside for a run around the block! Days like today I wish I lived closer to a mall so we could go walk around for a couple hours! Ack! Well I’m gonna go now!

I’m sorry it’s been so long for an update, things have been pretty wild lately, i’ve recently returned to work and all that fun stuff, i love my job!

Then yesterday i went to bed with a sore neck, took an advil and went to sleep. woke up with Jacob jumping on my tummy and causing my neck to hurt even more then the night before. i couldn’t move my neck so i called my doctor’s office to get an appt and as usual my dr was booked so i went to another dr in the office. Had to call my manager to tell her i wouldn’t be into work.

She checked me and asked me some questions and decided to send me to get blood work done as i had pretty much all the symptoms for early Meningitis, except the fever, but i had taken another advil just before i had left the house. She told me to stay at home and take my temperature later in the day when the advil would’ve worn off.

I Got blood work done, then went home and slept for almost 4 hrs. with a Magic Bag wrapped around my neck, bc i wasn’t allowed to take anymore medication. God Bless those Magic bags!!!

So by 5 pm i hadn’t heard from the dr and i wanted to know what was going on so i could tell my manager what was going on, the receptionist said she’d get a nurse to call me back. well half hour later a nurse did call me back and she said that my dr liked personally calling his patients to review the results so she’d leave him a note to contact me immediately.

My dr doesn’t work until the afternoons, so guess who’s off work yet again! eff! Bc if i did have Meningitis it’s contagious and that’s the last thing i need to bring into work! ugh!!!

Well i need to sleep. i thought i’d post so if anyone is reading this blog that they’d know i’m still alive… barely… but alive…

I’ll update another day about everything else going on.

Eventful morning – April 2nd, 2010

April 7, 2010

So as I promised I will tell you about my April Fools Joke yesterday, but right now i’m going to tell you what time i got to bed last night… ALMOST THREE AM!!!!!


God damn fucking kids!!!!! That stupid kiddy gang that drive me up the fucking wall most nights by by 1 am are off the streets… no last night decide to play in my back yard, which is muddy as hell so i could just imagine what it looks like today. then ran up and down the sidewalk between my house and my neighbours then were throwing rocks at vehicles.  At one point they were fighting and one kid got hurt and was laying on the middle of the road. Now if someone had driven down the road he could’ve been killed!!!

So i phoned Mobile Crisis and they said the best thing to do is phone the police, so i did and gave them all the details and once i hung up i kinda kept an eye out my window when i noticed a cop car down at the end of the street and the kids had scattered like little rats. so i grabbed my keys locked the door and went outside when i noticed another cop car on the side street by my house, the officer driving shone his light on me and drove up in front of my house. I told them who i was and they told me that they caught the kids and told them all to go home or else.

Thank god! I even noticed few days after the cops would make rounds. So far it’s been quiet!

So April Fools joke, i just couldn’t think of one to do, then i thought hmm i’m gonna call joey at work and tell him jacob went pee on the potty… so i phoned… he was out driving 😦 so i had to wait until he got home. So i texted my sister and told her that and she didn’t fall for it. Called my mom, same, she said “you have to get up a bit earlier to try to fool me”

Finally Joey got home from work. so i said to him “guess what! Jacob went pee on his potty today!” Joey got soo excited he says to jacob “hey my big man did you pee on your potty! right on! Gimme a high five!” and i was laughing so hard when joey turned around and he looked at me and i said “april fools!” what did he say in reply? “FUCK YOU!!!” he was soooo mad LOL!

So joey went to have a bath and i decided i needed to try to get one more person… hmm…. oh yes! i’ll get Linda, joey’s mom! so i phoned her and we talked a bit then i said “hey guess what jacob did today? he peed on the potty!” she got even more excited then joey had and was going on about what a big boy he is etc etc when i said “hey linda…april fools!!” and she stopped, got all quiet and said “i think i have to hang up on you now!” then admitted it was a pretty good joke and that i’m not going to be able to use Jacob for my evil april fools jokes for much longer and that the joke was realistic b/c jacob could be potty training right now. 🙂 yep i’m that good!!

Oh and my mom tried getting my dad by saying there was a moose in the yard… but he didn’t fall for it! lol

Anyhoo i’m gonna go now bed is calling me 🙂
