>On Tuesday

>I posted about being tired and not being able to post. Part of the reason I was so tired was the children had upset Em – she was yelling at them, something they did or more likely didn’t do. She told them she would not be going to Manhattan ever again since she cannot trust them to do what they are supposed to do.

Of course she is not going to stick to that but maybe this Saturday we will stay home, I hope so, I get so tired. These is the purposed plan for 16 May 2009.

Of course I will be back to let you know how it turns out, I am voting to stay home. But I am also weak.

I didn’t post the plans for this Saturday because they have already changed. D has convinced Em she should go for the day without children. Today she told me, he had to get the serpentine belt replaced on his van(he’s in Canada on business, that was an unexpected expense). But she still wants me to get a ticket for her, which I did. (Told you I was weak)

On another note, one of my weird things I used to post, I was on the subway reading the ads encouraging people to take the bus and the train. Isn’t that kind of like preaching to the choir as the saying goes? Shouldn’t they put them up at, oh, maybe the DMV?

Today, I saw a man with a weird beard. His face was shaven down to his chin line, then below that he had a beard. So the beard was under his chin and down his neck. If people do things like that, they should expect people to look at them funny. This is just my opinion. Don’t shoot me for it.

I told someone I was having a personal crisis and wouldn’t be posting for a while, then I realized I can’t do that. Even if I don’t talk about my crisis(and I’m not going to), typing in my blog is kind of a release for me. It allows me to let go of things so I can really obsess about what is bothering me. LOL!
