So here is an event from hell...

12/3/19 Tuesday- I get the girl and she comes over, we eat dinner, she showers and does whatever it is she does and while she is waiting on her mother to pick her up she says - oh hey I think they have bed bugs at shcool. I make a mental note and say that sucks.

12/5/19 Thursday - I don't get the girl because I was aggravated that she wants to buy her mom Starbucks because she's having a bad day. WTF!! (in my head I hear myself - her mom having a bad day taking care of her ailing husband who she cheated on with while being married to my husband - I don't care, I don't give not two not even one f&ck! And her father has had not one but two knee surgeries and is in pain everyday and goes to work and works is @ss off and never once did she say...hey my dad his having a bad day, let's take him coffee! And I go to work everyday and your dad goes to work everyday and your mom may or may not work and you want us to buy her coffee? WTF...again...NO).

12/5/19 Thursday evening - I am itching and have a string of red dots under my elbow up tricep to my armpit - I'm like WTH is this, i scratch and move on.

12/7/19 Saturday evening - I'm taking a shower and DH runs upstairs and is holding a bug...he asks 'what do you think this is? It was biting me. I say, you don't even want to know what I think! So after I get out of the shower and dressed and go down stairs I tell DH about the conversation the girl and I had on Tuesday night. He says...I don't think it's that but we check the mattresses in our bedroom and in hers for bed bugs.

12/11/19 Wednesday - I get the girl and she comes over, we eat dinner, she showers and does whatever it it she does and while she is wating on her mother to pick her up she asks - so why were my blankets and sheet messed up? I say...oh girl...well I had bites on me and your dad found a bug so we were checking for bed bugs. She says...oh, my school sent home a paper and said to spray with alchol water and if you don't like the smell of alcohol water add some fabric softener to it.  My mom has spray bottles in every room in our house. (in my head I hear myself...yeah right - your mom let you live with head lice for four years, so I seriosuly doubt she is going to have alcohol spray bottles in each room of your hosue for bed bugs).Not to mention my whole body itches!

Today on my way to work, in a traffic jam from hell DH sends a picture of a bug and says I found this bug crawling on me...its a f&cking bed bug. He said he found three more in his recliner! WTF....so we have bed bugs. I AM LIVID! I am just so totally disgusted with coparenting and being a stepmother. I hate it! I told DH to throw his chair out. I just bough the other furniture in June so it is relatively new and I can't afford to buy new furniture. I am beyond mad and disgusted and I would bury my face in a whole cheese cake to not have to deal with this right now...and I still itch and feel things crawling on me!

B: ezekiel toast

S: sweet and salty bar

L: tortilini with marinara sauce


So through with today and its not even 10:00.

BearCountryGG on 12/12/2019:
((HUGS))....You have my sympathy...we had foster kids arrive with head lice and dosed them within a couple of hours)...but never bedbugs.....we found out about scabies prior to arrival and prevented them from coming into the house....but never had to cope with bedbugs. One thing about bedbugs though is that they are larger and can be easily seen......One thing you could do with the chair after dosing it...you can use some wide tape wrapped around your hand...and let the sticky side pick up any stragglers. For any of her future visits she may bring them back though as well as spread them in your car....bedbugs infest hotels by luggage carrying them....( When staying in a hotel I always check under the mattress the first thing when I go into the room. Good luck....also vacuum everywhere including furniture and empty the vacuum every time you use it. At first I was surprised that they could be in school...but then I realized that they are probably coming into the school in backpacks.....I'm sad that you have to deal with all of this.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/12/2019:
I know a friend who had bed bugs and they had to bomb his house, or whatever thy do to get rid of them....i hope you are able to get rid of them very soon...i have heard they are a very big pain in the butt...

Donkey on 12/13/2019:
As Horn said, I would recommend bombing your house. Not literally, but there are pesticide bombs that you can set off in a closed house to kill off an infestation. After the bombing, it becomes nontoxic.

But this SUCKS.

legcramps on 12/13/2019:
Oh man, i'm so sorry to hear about the mess with the bedbugs. What an incredibly irritating thing to have to deal with! I hope it gets sorted quickly!

Horn_of_plenty on 12/15/2019:
i hope you are getting thru the bed bug situation. so sorry!

happy-1 on 12/17/2019:
The stories about the girl and her mother sound like child abuse / neglect. Might be time to call social services. Just saying.

The situation with bedbugs at her home sound like she is going to carry them back with her every time.

You probably have to fumigate and that is going to be a project. Make sure she helps with the labor to deal with it since she brought them in and she should be pulling her weight when she visits. She should have chores at your house just like she has chores at hers. The more effort she has to put in the more respectful she will be of your resources and the more she will value her relationship with you.

Last night I got home and starting cooking, usually I wait and don't eat until later in the night. I roasted from acorn squash, made some dressing and some pumpkin risotto (which was in a bag). It all tasted good...except there was a spice in the risotto I didn't care for.

Between DH getting home between 1:30-2:00 and my crazy animals, I'm lucky if I am beeing getting about 4 -5 hours of sleep. Tonight I will try to go to bed earlier...I'm hoping for 10:00.

I have to get the girl tonight. I told DH if I have to wait another time for her to get home, I am not going over there anymore to get her. I will not condone this treatment, it is NOT ok to make me wait when they (the girl and her mother) know what time I get there. It is unacceptable to me...and if it happens again, I refuse to go over there to get her. This is her dad's visitation time (and he is at work) not mine. I know I sound harsh...but again it is NOT ok to accept this. AND yesterday was officially the girl's birthday and she calls DH and asks if she can buy Starbucks - DH says yes, because it is her birthday, but then she asks, can I get my mom some too. WTF??? Her mother should be buying it for her...it is her birthday! OMG I hate this woman with every bit of my being! I'm just not going to exert any more effort in this. I need to take care of my own self.

B: ezekiel toast with PB

L: PB sandwhich AND I hate about four/five sugar cookies with icing...because they were in the break room. I suck today!

D: mashed potatoes, turkey sausage (for the girl) with grilled onions and peppers

The girl wanted the cranberry creamcheese dessert, I may make it for her, I may wait until the weekend. I D K.

Work is very slow lately, I'm just hoping I can make it through the new girl without using more of my annual leave and sick leave.

Have a great evening iP!

These are trying times, indeed.

There's a lot of sugar crap at my office too. Finding it very hard to resist.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/11/2019:
I'm with you...girlie should be ready for you :)...i hope they can work it out for you!

love your sausage and peppers. i want to make this.

cranberries with cheesecake....great idea. i may have to make this at some point,too.

I thought I was doing better, but I had another bought with my depression and tears and just having the blues in general. Made an appointment with the therapist to maybe start with some medication...last resort.

DH called me last night, he had fallen at work and they thought he broke his hand...after an ER trip and xrays - it is just badly bruised...thank goodness.

Last night I cooked onions, mushrooms, garlic and spinach and I put this on flat bread - this is a cheeseless pizza. It tasted good.

We decided early on that we were going to only get a few gifts for the kids for Christmas - I am doing a snowman for each of them like below...

And I was doing Zentangle as a stress relief and made these three to go on the envelopes (to distinguish) which snowman belongs to who....I thought they turned out nice - or at least it helped me.

I think the V is my favorite.

I took the dogs and went to get gas last night. THese little guys just love to drive in the car.

Have a great day! IP

Therapists are helpful. I am going thru something i wish i wasn't going thru right now. I hope to get better, by finding coping skills and working on my confidence. I still have a ways to go.

Your dinner of cheeseless pizza sounds amazing and your art is also amazing!..i like them all, i think i like them all the same and cannot choose which one is best...but if i had to - the K or J is my personal favorite! :) It takes a lot of patience to do that kind of art!

Donkey on 12/11/2019:
I kind of like the K...

I left work early Friday - not sure why, I just didn't want to be there. I got home and DH was gone, he went with a friend to lunch. but we put up the Christmas tree when he got home.

Saturday I get up and go get my hair cut and touched up - covered the gray. I went with DH to his company's Christmas dinner. It was nice. I do get uncomfortable as I do not know these people nor do I want to. We sat in a photo booth and had our caricatures drawn. And then we drive home after the prizes were given away....we didn't win. I ate a small piece of roast and 1/2 piece of cheesecake...this was a big mistake. My body says WHY? I had bathroom issues all day on Sunday and some cramping. So won't be eating meat again anytime soon....or dairy.

Sunday laundry day and house clean day. DH went to pick the girl up and take her to orchestra rehearsal. He does this because her mom won't....she would rather go pick up the 'family friend' from work than take her daughter to an extra currircular activity..DH doesn't mind, but I have an attitude with it. Sunday we had brocoli potatoe soup and baked beans.

Here is the caricature from this weekend.


Dinner tonight, probably baked potatoe with onions, mushrooms and spinach.

Have a great day. IP

Your reaction to meat was very interesting! I can see why that would be rough on the tummy.

I love the caricatures - quite cleverly done!

So I burned dinner last night...forgot all about it being in the oven. Thank goodness for smoke alarms. No one was injured in this unfortunate event!

Second round black bean burgers with avocado and garlic bread with baked beans. Too many beans last night.

The girl called DH and asked if she could buy her mom Starbucks! WTW!! Hell to the NO! I told him to lock the card and don't let her use it, apparently this was a very bad idea! Lesson learned. I was so mad I even told DH I didn't want to go get her tonight, I don't even want to deal with her. Not to mention the last two Thursdays I picked her up I had to wait. For some reason when her mother picks her up from school, she doesn't take her home. Instead the rude ass mom takes the girl to pick up their 'family firend' and I'm sitting there at their house for 30 minutes waiting for them to get back. I told the girl...she knows what time I get there and her reply was...I know but my mom won't bring me back home. What EVER!! I'm not waiting tonight...that for sure!!

I asked to take off tomorrow, but I haven't heard back from my boss. I really won't have anything to do and will just mess around and pretend I'm busy. Oh well we will see.

No plans this weekend. I may go shopping for a few other things.

I have no idea what to cook tonight for dinner. I thought I wanted to girll onions, mushrooms and spinach and put them over a baked potator. Or I could try the garbanzo/artichoke patties, I still haven't made. I will see how I feel when I get home.

B; bagel

L: left over black bean burger with avocado, banana

S: pop tarts

I will say...that there is nothing like earning the money themselves to make them appreciate it. Maybe time to encourage babysitting or some other part time job...if she is 15 she is old enough.

Donkey on 12/06/2019:
I hope you got today off.

I give you guys credit for trying to work with the girl. It didn't work, but it was a good try.

If she doesn't have money to do things with friends, all the more incentive to get a job.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/06/2019:
your lunch sounds tasty!

and dinner sounds amazing!

anyways, i do agree that babysitting is a great part time gig on the weekend for someone girlie's age :)

I can't believe that her mom would be so rude. She should have given you a heads up then driven her to your house.

Well the week started off ok...

Big fiasco with the girl - I can't calculate in my brain how to deal with it...so I avoided it all together. The girl had mentioned a few times during the last couple of months that she had opportunities to do something with friends...but didn't have any money. So for some reason I had it in my head that she needed money. I gave her $20. The next time I see her she has a new phone case. I told DH that I thought she needed money and we talked and came up with the idea we would make her an authorized user on his credit card. We gave this credit card to her for her birthday, with specific instructions that if she went to dinner or a movie with friends she could pay her way. She would just have to call DH and ask him to unlock the card so she could use it. She said OK.

So Monday at work I get a phone call from the girl asking me to unlock the card. I told her I can't unlock the card because I don't have access - It's not my card. She calls her dad, he's at work. He unlocks the card. He asked her why...she says she was at the store buying hair products and personal hygeine stuff and needed to pay. She spent almost $50.00. I was a little confused as to why she was buying personal hygeine stuff. She was just at our house for four and half days and never once did she mention she needed shampoo or hair gell or hair spray or personal hygeine items....Anyway...totally not using the card as intended. DH explained to her again, we would buy this stuff she would just have to let us know.

In my mind of minds - I'm like she told her mom she had a credit card and then she bought stuff for her mom and step sister and friends and this really irked me to NO end. DH cut the limit down to $100...

Tuesday my mom called and told me she was in the hospital for a few days with some kind of infection and has to have an MRI to check a mass around or near her appencix, so this has me concerned. Also a friend of mine from highschool, husband passed away from complications from kidney disease ultimately from diabetes. I'm sad for her. And then I get the girl and I just can't even talk to her or try and figure out exactly what happened with the credit card so I say nothing. I didn't ask...she didn't say.

I get home and cook dinner which was chicken alfredo with brocolli - I just had the brocolli alfredo, but I was sprinkling bread crumbs on the top and putting it in the oven to bake a little. When I went to put the bread crumbs back in the cabinet I realized I didn't have the lid on all the way and bread crumbs spilt all over the stove and right in the little crevice where the stove butts up against the cabinet. I hear it rain down like little pebbles all over and under my stove. What a mess.

After eating I swept up the bread crumbs I could reach and then pulled out the stove and cleaned up the bread crumbs and all the other crap that was under there, swept and mopped. Then I did the same to the refrigerator and then swept and mopped the entire kitchen. Not whay I really wanted to do on Tuesday night....but it is done now.

This morning, I don't know, but I cried all the way to work and then sat in the parking lot and cried for an extra 10 minutes until I felt I was composed enough to go into work, where I sit now. I'm still miserable and just wonder how I am going to get through the day.

Not a fan of today....

B: Ezekiel bread with nutella

L: left over brocolli alfredo, apple

S: banana

D: to be determined, but I'm pretty sure it will be garlic bread and baked beans because that is all I feel like I can accomplish

This to shall pass....have a great day. IP

BearCountryGG on 12/04/2019:
AWWWW ((HUGS))......that is a lot to deal with. Just a thought.....some stores sell visa cards when you put a certain amount on them...like a gift card....that might work for her and would prevent her having access to her Dads....and you could load it as you wanted...and maybe she would budget it better if she knew there was a limit or that you might not add anymore to it....just a thought. Sending prayers for your Mom and hoping that she gets through this quickly and gets back home soon. Well....now you don't have to clean under those appliances again for a long time.....at least that is behind you!!

happy-1 on 12/04/2019:
Geez... If I wanted hair products when I was a teenager, I had to buy them with my own money... And $50???? Has she not been to the Dollar Store? Everything you need is there for a dollar. I started working at 14... Sounds like she needs a babysitting or dog walking gig.

innerpeace on 12/05/2019:
I know right! WOW have times have changed...dollar store brand is not good enough for the hair that hangs down to her a$$!...that gets all over the house.

And hugs on the crumbs/cleaning/everything is too hard scenario. If I was there, I'd give you a hug.

Donkey on 12/05/2019:
(((hugs))) Sometimes, we just need to cry it out.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 12/05/2019:
yes, a good cry is ok.

but, with the girlie, you know it's really a small issue and it can be talked out. it's a small issue since DH was able to place good limits on the card. Yeah, maybe let him chat it out with girlie instead of you :)

i'm sorry to hear that some of the health issues your loved ones are facing..and wishing your mom to feel better soon.

happy-1 on 12/07/2019:
She needs to braid that up. It's not cool to do that to someone's home and not pitch in with the cleaning. Hand her the vacuum before she leaves.

I can't believe how fast these four days just flew by.

DH smoked a turkey - it was beautiful and he was very proud of it. I did have a piece of turkey breast - BUT - I kept picking at it because it looked like something was coming out of it - a worm (it was probably just tendon or some other body part) I fed most of it to my dog...but it was moist and tasted good - not too smokey. - I ate brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes, cranberry sauce and some dressing. I then had a piece of sweet potatoe buy DH bought, but it was really spicy and I didn't eat the rest of it. I did good for Thanksgiving.

Friday - we ate left overs - We went to see It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood - not my cup of tea - but it was good.

Saturday - left the house a little for shopping - but then had a panic attack and didn't stay out very long - We celebrated the girls 15th birthday (it is actually on the 10th - but since DH is working 2nd shift - he is never home on the evenings she is over) and then...FOOTBALL!

Sunday - domestic cleaning, laundry, kitchen and helped DH put lights up for Christmas, actually that was an all weekend kinda thing.DH heated some potatoe ans spinach peirogies - these were good. I made a mushroom, onion & pancetta (bacon like for flavor) stromboli.

Monday is Monday. Slept well and have been having crazy dreams.

B: toast

L: stromboli, apple

D: TBD - I may tackle my chickpea/artichoke heart patty that I still haven't made - tonight maybe a good night for this.

Have a great evening! IP

I'm not interested in the Mr. Rogers movie for seeing it in the theater, maybe once it comes out, i'll watch it on Amazon prime though!

The smoked turkey sounds AMAZING. so he did it whole? Or did he smoke it in sections? I'm guessing whole.

Your patties sound both creative and TASTY!

Still around.

Still meatless.

Looking forward for the four day weekend. May do some Christmas shopping.

We are celebrating the girls 15th birthday and DH wan'ts to go see a movie.

DH is smoking a turkey. I am making the sides - Brussel sprounts, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, and green bean casserole. I also wanted a corn casserole but I am the only one that likes that. We also have a small ham because the girl doesn't like turkey.

Doing good and feeling good.

After Thanksgiving I may start trying to be move active, I have been dreaming of running so I'll see.

Last night I made an Asian salad with cabbage it was good.

Tonight, I will probably feed the girl periogies.

I am going to try my hand at an chickpea, artichocke patty if not I will eat a black bean burger and avocado.

I hope each of you have a happy Thanksgiving and appreciate all you have in life...be thankful and be kind.

We hadn't planned on having Brussel sprouts, but I'm going to see if we have some frozen, just for me.

Are you planning on having a vegetarian Thanksgiving too?

I get the girl her Chick-fil-A. Drive thru was closes so I had to park and go in. And I felt rushed. I don't get there to often so I don't know the menu like the back of my hand. I get her nuggets, DH chicken sandwiches and I get a salad.

I get home and pick the chicken off my salad and give it to my dogs. It was a great salad though.

After the girl left I had the munchies and ate two sweet and salty bars and then when I was making lunch (PB&J) I also had a half PB sandwhich.

Yesterday, I did get the apology email from ER saying...oh, sorry, I was looking at the wrong calendar, you date is correct. Thanks. I'm glad I got this, however, I am still attitudinal with my boss and his through process that we are always wrong....anyway!!! I will just have to deal with him tomorrow, because I took Friday off - mental health day. And then Thanksgiving is next week and I will work 2 1/2 days and be off 2 1/2/ days this I love!

I have been doing recipes searches and there are several groups on Facebook who have WFPB recipes and I have tons, now, its deciding on what I want to eat and how much prep work I actually want to do. Eat the rainbow!

Tonight though...DH sent me a recipe that is for a grilled mushroom and onion grilled cheese. So I will use the last of the swiss and gruyere cheese we have in the refrigerator and never by cheese again! I haven't been having too much trouble not drinking milk, but I do mis it. Cheese...cheese is the DEVIL! With that being said, I have found some recipes for vegan cheese and I may just have to try this and test it out.

Friday, DH and I will be trying to find someone to make us a Riverdale cake for the girl's 15th birthday. It is on the 10th, but we are going to celebrate it on the 1st, because after Thanksgiving DH won't see her again until the weekend after ther actually BD so he wanted to celebrate it early. She doesn't mind.

So shopping and Thanksgiving and shopping!

Have a great day! IP

i haven't been to chick fil'a in awhile either but it sounds like it'd be very good! :) at least good chicken! nice meals you all got.

yes, it's def so NICE to be out on Friday after thanksgiving and not have to go in that very next day indeed. i usually get that day off, too. this year i'm not working that week at all...

yes, maybe you can find a good Vegan cheese which a cheese lover like you would be hard to do...since i doubt it tastes the same but it could be good in some recipes that require herbs.

i cannot wait for Tgiving to be over....because i hate how it's overeating for me....

had a horrible day at work. Three months ago I did a promotion personal action and submitted it to be processed. I was told I had the wrong date, that all promotions must start at the beginning of a pay period. Lesson Learned!

Yesterday I submit another promotion and before I even had my boss sign it, I checked that date no one or two time...but FIVE!! I didn't want to have to resubmit an error. My boss signed it, I told him, I check the date and it was right. He replied...'great I don't want another nasty gram from ER (our regional headquarters)." Well I don't either that is why I checkd it several times.

I get home and make the mistake of checking email and this Mother trucker at ER has that email...this must start at the beginning of a pay period!! WTF!! Are you freakin' kidding me? Well I guess I don't know how to do my job afterall. I was miffed all evening.

For dinner I put together a vegetable soup with brocoli, carrots, cauliflower, mushrooms and onions I used the better than boullion vegetabl broth base and it turned out pretty tasty. I also added some spinach ricotta tortilli and it was delicous. D@mn Cheese!

So this morning I get in and my boss is like....JoAnn your date is wrong! Why is it that I am the one who has to be wrong? I told him I checked the date five freakin' times. Why doesn't he have my back! Why doesn't he trust my work. I pulled up the calendar and I pulled up the promotion form and showed him the dates. He said I will respond. He writes the email saying our dates are correct according to the pay calendar, is there another error? Again why would he just automatically assume we are wrong! I hate that. I am automatically the one in the wrong...whatever! I am glad he won't be in the office for the next few days, until I get rid of my attitude!

I have to pick up the girl tonight. I told DH I would stop at Chick fil A and get her something to eat. I didn't want to hear her complain about her no meat or as she calls it 'rabbit food'.

People irritate me!

B: French toast toast, iced tea

L: left over vegetable soup

S: sweet and salty bar, apple

Work does suck indeed! WTF! It makes me wonder if it's an automatic response to say the date is wrong... you jeebus, line when you send an email and you get an automatic generated response, "so and so is out of the office..." Sheesh!

Your veggie meals sound so delicious! Giving up dairy would seem monumental to me. What is life without cheese? And don't even get me started on cream for coffee...

you know, what's wrong with the cheese!? sounds good and tasty with the veggie soup! your soup sounds amazing!!!! if you like cheese, eat some cheese, i say! that's what i do, but with chocolate / candy / chips / protein muffins (can't wait to have one SOON!)

seems very odd about your dates on your submitted paperwork, maybe someone in HR is incorrect. doesn't have to be you....weird thing indeed!
