Fuck you ! Fridays

It is that time of the week again. I don't have a picture for FU Friday. When you read where it is sent out to, you will understand.

I have run out of meds and my Doctor is on holidays til Feb 5th. I spent all day yesterday trying to get someone to give me a refill. No such luck. It drives me that you can't get a medically neccessary refil until your regular doctor returns. What am I supposed to do until then? Suffer I guess.

So I send out a big Fuck You to the messed up medical system.

My next one is a little more painful. I think of myself as a loyal friend. I will defend you to the end of the earth. BUT if you betray me or my trust, you are dead to me. I came home from school last night and found a letter in my mailbox. It was from the mother of the girl I am looking after for the week. She is bitching because I called her house twice and she wants me to stop. In truth, it was HER DAUGHTER calling to talk to her brother. Whatever. Then she goes on to say things that the girl's father had told her about me and my family. Things he was told in trust. I cannot believe he would stab us in the back like that. I have never been anything but supportive to him. Who took his daughter when her own Mother wouldn't. This is the payback I get. I am so hurt. I realize alot of her letter was bullshit, but someone had to give her the information. I know I didn't and I know my husband didn't,so who is left? I am now sending my next Fuck You to betrayal by so called friends!

Now you see why there is no picture. Kinda hard to come up with a picture for those kinds of things.

Have a good weekend all. Don't forget to let TG know that you played along.

This is my life.

I used to be a grownup. I used to have adult interests. Now I am trapped in a house with preschoolers. This is what my life has been reduced to. Instead of discussing with you the latest episode of Desperate Housewives, I am going to show you the intro to my favorite kid's show. I love this bear. When he dances it makes me laugh. Oh God, I need an adult to talk to.

Things here have been crazy! My friend had to fly to Mexico this weekend for his niece's wedding. ( poor baby. Wish I had to fly to Mexico) Anyway, his parents are too ill to travel so he went to represent the family.His ex decieded to be miserable and refused to take their daughter for the week. This is 16 hours before he is to leave. He was in a panic. To make a long story short, I now have an extra daughter for a week.

On Friday afternoon, I got a call from a Mom. She was supposed to go back to work on Monday. Her daycare plans fell through and she was desperately looking for someone to look after her 10 month old daughter. I now have a 10 month old girl here. She is adorable!

There were two deaths here this weekend. My friend's father passed away on Friday. She had to leave her kids again to fly home. My heart breaks for her. Then the Mother of a friend of ours passed away on Saturday. Cancer is a bitch. No two ways about it.

I hope all is well with everyone else.

It is that time of the week again. It is FUCK YOU! FRIDAY.

Today's episode is brought to you by idiot politicians. Today's winner is a man who (in my opinion) is a cross between a lawyer and a used car salesman. Yes, todays winner is none other than NDP Leader Jack Layton! This man needs to do some research before he goes anywhere outside of his home. This is the same man who thinks they way to stop terrorism is to sit down to tea with the Taliban.

This week our intrepid leader was at the Manitoba Ag Days in Brandon. The nitwit was giveing a speech to agriculture producers. He was quoted as saying to them "Another important issue is SARS. I was just talking to a cattle producer today who said the situation is worse now than when we were in the middle of SARS". Throughout his speech, he kept referring to SARS. Hello idiot! The issue to cattle producers is not SARS it is BSE!(aka Mad Cow disease) Get your facts before you open your mouth. SARS has not affected cattle. BSE is the threat to cattle. Then Eastern politicians wonder why they are alienating Western voters. This just pisses me off. We all know that most federal politicians believe the world ends in Toronto but can you at least pretend to have an inkling of interest in the issues that affect the rest of us?

So to Mr. Layton for giving us proof once again that eastern politicians do not have a clue about Manitoba, I offer you this week's huge FUCK YOU! If you want to know what FU Fridays are all about, visit the gang and let them know you played.0

Since it is Monday and I have been away for a while, I am going to empty out all the thoughts floating around my little head. Bear with me.

First things first. I would like to offer my condolences to all of Betcha's friends. While I never had the honor of meeting her, I know we read some of the same blogs. I always enjoyed reading her thoughtful comments. Losing someone so young and full of promise is just unfair. May her friends find comfort in their memories of her.

Now onto my bitching. On Friday, it was -48C here. According to a temperature converter I found on the Internet, that would make it -54F. In other words, IT WAS DAMN COLD!!! (Mark, if you still want to live here, you ARE the Lord of the Idiots. I will gladly trade you places). The School Division decided that it was too cold to run the school buses. Their reasoning was, if a bus should break down, it would take 15 - 20 minutes to get another bus there. (remember those times, it is important for later). They feel that is too long to have the students wait on the bus in the cold. It would be too dangerous to have to sit there for that long. IF, we lived in a rural area, I would agree with their reasoning. However, we don't. We live in a city. In the Capital city of the Province I might add. I can poke holes in their thinking. 1. If a bus should break down, the bus will not immediately become cold unless all the windows and doors are left open. The bus will stay warm for a while. The students would be okay for a while. 2. Being in the city, if a replacement bus did take longer to get there, the students could take shelter in any number of offices, stores, churches or community clubs they pass along the way. Sorry that argument doesn't hold water with me. If you need to cancel the buses, then cancel school all together.

Here is where I get royally pissed off. If you are a bus student, Friday was an excused absence for you. If you were not a bus student, you were expected to be at school. (Remember the time limit?) It takes my son 15 - 20 minutes to walk to school from our house. If he didn't go to school it was an unexcused absence for him. How is that fair? 15 - 20 minutes is too long for students to sit on a disabled bus, but not too long for my son to be in the cold. WTF???? It has always been that way, but it just strikes me as unfair. My friend's son lives one street over. He is classified as a bus student, but he never takes the bus, he always walks with my son instead. The Vice Principal called their house and told them that unless the boy had a ride both to and from school, he was not to come to school since there was no bus. I don't have a car, so my son still would have to walk and still have an unexcused absence. It drives me mad!

Thanks for listening to that little rant. My family is sick of hearing me complain about it.

Next up. Here are a few stories about what a bad parent I am. My son has been sick with a cold on and off for about four weeks. I tried to get him into our doctor, but it was impossible. You know how wonderful our medical system is. Anyway, on Wed, I decided that enough was enough and we were going to find him a Walk in Clinic. While we were at it, I had a sore throat I thought I would get checked out too. The usual Clinic we go to was closed for the whole week. Shoot. Okay next plan. The next Clinic I thought of was an out of the way place, not many people knew about. We had never been there, but I know I had seen a sign stating that appointments were not needed. Great except they closed at 5 and it was now 7. Last chance, one more clinic. This clinic was so full people were standing elbow to elbow. My son looked at me and said that he didn't want to wait, he just wanted to go home to bed. So we gave up. I did mention to him that we had passed at least 4 Vet offices. They were all open and didn't look busy. He didn't see the humor in that. On Friday, my one daughter was complaining about an earache just like me, so I took both of them to one of the walk ins we had tried earlier in the week. Luckily, the wait was only an hour so we all go in.


Here is where bad parenting came into play. When the doctor saw my son he asked "HE HAS BEEN LIKE THIS FOR HOW LONG?" I guess he was a little more ill than we had figured. He has a throat and sinus infection and is on heavy duty meds. I felt rotten. Poor kid had been sick for so long, I should have taken him in earlier. On the plus side, the boy did tell me that he thought it was just a cold and nothing worse. Bad Parent, Bad Parent.

This next bit is hard for me to talk about. I cannot see the silver lining in this one and I for sure cannot see humor in it. I just have to get it out. Be gentle when you judge me on this one.

My one daughter S is a difficult child. When she was two days old, the nurse was waiting for us at the hospital door. She announced to us " Little Miss has an attitude" Little Miss was only two days old and two months premature. I knew right then, we were screwed. S is described as lively and feisty. She is also stubborn and quick tempered. Lately, things have been getting worse. She has started having accidents and throwing tantrums. Not little tantrums, I mean big 45 - an hour tantrums. She is starting to get violent too. I am sure some of this is brought on by the rotten kid at school that keeps harassing her. The School doesn't see these tantrums so they don't understand what a problem this bullying is causing. I guess they figure if they don't have to deal with it, it is not a problem. Anyway, the last time we took her to the doctor, I told her Dad to tell the Doctor about all this. He didn't see the point, but I made him promise to do it anyway. He did. The Doctor suspected ADD might be the problem. She is not disruptive in the classroom. As a matter of fact, her grades are very good and she is well liked by her teachers. We were referred to a Child and Adolescent Treatment Centre. They have since done an in ital assessment. They have decided that she is Not Add but she does need help. The wait list for help runs about 12 weeks. So we won't get in until Feb or March. In the mean time, they want us to get her assessed by a psychologist. Great. I will do whatever we need. The uh-oh part is that they warned us, it is not covered by the government medicare. The cost to us will be about $500. Okay, that is alot of money, but it needs to be done. When I actually made the appointment, it is not $500 instead it is $1100! Yikes. I don't have that type of money and I am not sure where I will get it from. Something is not right with this program when you have to pay that much for this. It is not something we did because we felt like it. This child needs help that I can't give her. I don't know why she does these things. The last meltdown she had, she tried to hit anyone near her and threatened me with a knife. She is only 9. If we don't get her help now, what will happen in the future to her? I can't help but think there is something that I did wrong to make her this way. Am I that bad of a Mother that I have damaged my daughter in some way? When she says she would be better in foster care than with me, I have to wonder what horrible thing did I do to her? What kind of mother am I ? This is so painful to feel that even your child feels she would be better off away from you. I don't know how to fix it because I don't even know the cause. I feel like my heart is breaking.

Those are the thoughts that are running through my head, and hopefully you now understand where I have been lately. I will try to check in with everyone this week. Take care.

Back To Normal ( or at least what passes for normal around here)

Woo Hoo!! I survived Christmas holidays. It was touch and go for a while there but I squeaked by. I have taken a poll of local parents. We have decieded that two weeks off is way toooo looooonnngggg. One week would be perfect. Okay, having school seven days a week for 10 hours a day would be perfect, but I will take what I can get. Our holidays were topped off with a snowstorm on New Year's Eve. The husband threw his back out shovelling, so our new years consisted of him laying on the couch moaning in pain. Do we know how to ring the new year or what?

I am happy to report that we made it through the holidays without any trips to the emergency room. No broken bones or gopher hole falls this Christmas. That in itself is something to celebrate.

I received the greatest present this year. From my kids, I got two tickets to see the Trailer Park Boys live!! I can't wait! Ooops my white trash roots are showing again. The TPB will be joined by Swollen Members and Helix. I didn't know Helix was even still around. It should be fun. The official countdown has started. THERE ARE NOW 24 DAYS TILL TPB!!!!!!!!!

I hope y'all had a wonderful Christmas and a great start to the new year.
