Like Something Out Of A Movie

When I got off work tonight I called Matt, like usual. He told me something bad had happened. His Great Uncle Don had passed away. He died in a car wreck, which isn't uncommon here but the details are. Candace, Matt's 14-year-old cousin, usually rides with him. If she had...she would be gone also. Don was T-Boned by a car/truck going about 90MPH that ran a stop sign. Matt's Unlce Rick was ahead of Don in his truck, along with Candace. He was on the phone with him when it happened.

Don was killed on impact, but the car exploded and caught on fire along with three other cars. They had some ammunition in the backseat of Don's truck, so when his truck exploded the ammo started going everywhere. With that being said, the firemen weren't able to get him out of the truck til it was safe.

Life Is Passing Me By

Today was not the greatest day. I woke up today with a horrible headache, it was so bad that I had to call into work sick. I started to fell queasy not too long after, and as I expected...yup. So I went back to bed and woke up around 2 or 3 o'clock. Luckily I don't have class in the morning because now I can't fall asleep. lol

The other night as I was driving home I had a thought, "Maybe Lance would like to go with me to the U2 concert?" So I called Matt and asked him about it. He called and talked to Lance and I've finally got someone to go with me! I was wanting to find someone to ride over there with me and back, but this is better than nothing. Plus no one else would enjoy the concert like Lance would, so I feel like that's worth it.

I got on facebook tonight and found some interesting news. One of my friends from working at Lowe's has gotten engaged! That's great news for her, but I feel like I'm stuck. Andrea, Carly, Alecia, and now Carrie are either engaged or married. Carrie and Melvin started dating a good while after Matt and I did. They met when they were working together at Lowe's also. Carrie and I used to be good friends but the past couple of years, not so much. There was a point where there was no doubt that she would be one of my bridesmaids. I just kinda feel left out in a bunch of ways...

Gone But Never Forgotten

Yesterday mom and I were talking about some of the stuff I'll need for when I move to Blounstville. The bed frame that I've been using for the past couple of years, nanny's old bed frame, is starting to fall apart. I knew that if I had to a had a plain metal frame in the garage that I used to have. I was talking about me wanting to go and look at some furniture stores and mom told me to come out to the garage with her.

After I managed to somehow get to the back she pointed to this white (maybe cream) colored headboard and footboard. It didn't look familiar and it was a full size bed, I've always had a twin, so I thought that it must have been mom's at one point. I was wrong. Nanny bought me a bed and a dresser around the time Jessie was born. She would come and stay with us a good bit and needed somewhere to sleep. I had a twin bed, obviously that was too small for the two of us, so she bought it for me and her. I don't remember well because after we moved my new room was smaller and I didn't have room for it. I have not seen that bed since I was about 8 years old. Sometimes my mom hangs on to most stuff for way too long, but I'm really glad that she kept this...especially since nanny isn't with me anymore.

Well, mom just came in here and said that she's not sure if we still have my dresser. If they gave that away that will make me so mad, unless someone REALLY needed it. Nanny didn't buy that for them, she bought it for me.

Just Let Me Be Myself

So apparently the money from my mom's 401k has came in, or is about to. Yesterday my mom said something about going and looking at stoves today. I tried to get her to go when she asked me about it (because I have stuff that I need to do) but she wouldn't listen to me. To make a long story short...we don't go. Mom starts trying to give me a guilt trip, which doesn't work, and now my dad just came in here and tried to do the same. I am so freaking tired of doing stuff to make everyone happy! Yes, I slept late and I didn't get to go shopping them. I'm sorry that I had a bad headache, took something for it, and slept like Rip Van Winkle!

She starts going on about how after I move that it won't be the same and that she plays second fiddle to all this stuff in my life. Well let's see here, I am 28 years old and I should have been outta here a long time ago. She does have another daughter that needs her mom. I have moved back home after moving out and guess what? It was apparently has been "the same." And another thing, it is not uncommon for peoles priorities to change as they get older. I will always love my mom, but her and dad are not on the top of the list anymore. As I have heard them tell me, "When i was your age your father and I had been married for three years and had already had you." Call me crazy but hearing stuff like that and some other stuff makes me feel like they want me to leave...which is fine.

I'm Ready For An Off Day

We are having company come to our lovely Academy store tomorrow! Exactly a week ago we had inventory, so our store is still trashed. Today and yesterday wasn't busy with people buying shoes, just people messing up the shelves looking at them. I get so tired of having to hold peoples hand while they shop. I understand that people need help, that's why I have a job there. But when someone needs a Nike shoe and they grab a box that has New Balance on it...I get frustrated!

I am ready to get out of Glencoe. There is nothing wrong with Glencoe, Al. I am just tired of being in this messy house! The hot water has been off since around May, we've had a small water leak about a month ago and Dad turned the water off. The oven doesn't work and there's only one eye that works on our stove. Besides of all the stuff that is wrong with my parents house I am basically ready to be out of the house again. I have a lot of things i need to take care of before I leave. I think I've decided on the bedding that I'm going to buy for when I move.

A New Start

It's been a long time, but I'm back to blogging again. The purpose of my previous blog was to share my life w/ my friends, but that's kind of hard to do when no one reads it anymore! lol So here I am, this time it's for myself. I have a myspace and facebook account but when I get frustrated about something I feel like I can't get it all out because I worry I'll make someone mad.
