APARTMENTS, CHRISTMAS SHOPPING AND DINNER WITH GRANDDAUGHTER

I got the apartment..Now all I need to do is move..argh...I start freaking out every time I think about packing up all this shit I have accumulated over the past 61 years...And the fucking books..Judas priest..The books..And boxes of arts and crafts crap..boxes of picture frames, kanick kanacks..And more books..Think I may just put a match to it and start from scratch...
Was going to go to Waco yesterday to do some last stuff Christmas shopping and thought I would see if Jenny wanted to go with me..She said she would have a early dinner with me but I couldn't come shopping with her as she was shopping for the family and that meant me too..So I met her at her restaurant and had a great Mexican meal with her and Jason..Who pissed her off cause he was already late and stopped by his house to shave...I think the blush is off the bloom here folks..She called him an asshole dickhead....and a few other choice words I didn't know she knew..Was torn between being appalled and proud...Ha..Gee wonder where she got that from?...

I had a combo fajita place..with shrimp, chicken and beef...didn't eat the rice and only a few chips with the salsa..but decided to go for it..as I had been good for so long and wouldn't eat any thing later on(right...).
I tried to make it to our big mall, but had been so long since I had been there..I got lost..what a riot...they had built another mall..like a shopping center.I saw a pier-1...I love pier-1...but quit going after they stopped carrying the funky clothes, jewerly and shoes..Mojo and I loved those weird rope and canvas shoes and I could get some incredible bargains on the jewerly and crap made in 3rd world countries..but they stopped doing that and now are so up town saturday night that I don't enjoy them at all..But did find these beautiful beaded and material covered heavy boxes for jewerly that I know the girls will love...they are small, but so cool looking..got 3 for $7.50 and 3 for $6.00.. they were solid red, pink and silver...I was going to go from there to the big mall, but I kept getting lost..and at 8pm I said fuck it and went to Dairy Queen and got me a giant ice cream cone..hadn't had one in over 6 months..was sooo sorry..they are huge now..I know that fucker must have weighed 3 lbs...by the time I got home I was nearly in a sugar coma..but blood sugar was only 169...but it was high this morning of 161 too..so will have to really watch it today..fuck...now I have to worry about the food police..
I rented 2 movies..dead man's chest which made me laugh out loud..but damn..it sure was a long movie..and then rented the ice storm?? is that the name..? with Billy Bob Thorton..and John Cuisac...that movie was terrific...I loved it...John C. is the best...
Got a late start to the library so only got to read babs post and this do this..so will catch up Monday..have a great weekend...Cowboys play tonight..everyone cross their fingers for me...the way I have felt lately..the lost of another Cowboy game would just be enough to push me over the edge and send me on a shooting spree...that is if I had access to a gun...thank the Goddess for the 7 day waiting period ...If not I would already be doing time....
fuckme till I pack heat...

"Was torn between being appalled and proud.."

thanks for the laugh, needed it!

Good luck w/ the move- moving in real life is way worse than switching blogs.

I need the food police here, I've been soooooo bad. Working all this overtime, I just grab whatever's handy for meals and it's usually junkfood. Then all I do is sit on my ass in front of a 'puter for 12 hours at work (and the 'puter police are on days, so I have to covert blog if I get to blog at all) and go home and pass out till the next day. You can tell all this by the way my ass is spreading out.

But I'm on a whole weeks worth vacation starting MONDAY. Yeah!!!

Try to stay out of trouble and I'll catch up with ya later.

I know you love books like I do, I found gorgeous link/artist that took real pics of libraries over the world - they are awesome. I'll share on blog in day or two :)

Moving is a pain in the ass! I think I smell a yard sale coming.
I know what you mean about going to the big city and getting lost. I go to a town that is about 30 miles from here so seldom that I have trouble finding anything.
The trouble with going on a shooting spree now is that they happen so often that you have to do something really strange and different to get the attention of the press or maybe even get the police to notice you.
I swear I’m gonna write something soon.

I don't know about our boys. I'm watching the game right now.
Dinner sounded yummy. Now I'm hungry, bitch!

Granny said...

I rented Dead Man's Chest and Over the Hedge for the girls this afternoon. They'll have one or maybe both in their stockings but they don't know that yet.

If I had to move I think I'd pack up the computer, walk out with the kids, and light a match.

There's always Goodwill to start over.

Goodwill is good for the soul, but yard sales are fun. Just pick out what you absolutely can never live without, lock it up and have the kids take over the rest of the sale. I vote for yard sale. You should be able to get some good blogging out of that experience.

Hey congratulations on the new apartment! They'll let you take Annie, right?
Moving out sucks....all that cleaning and organising, it's kinda depressing. Moving IN is much nicer, I think.
I had fajitas last night too. Pork. Yum.

61 years is a lot of time to accumulate stuff. As a packrat myself, I can only wonder what sorts of things you have in your collection.

Do you save the fortunes from fortune cookies? I do...

Sorry to hear you have to pack up and move. I'd be there in a heartbeat to help if I could.

Good for Jenny in telling the little dipshit off!! I hate people that are late all the time. It's just laziness on their part most of the time.

Well, the Cowboys won and the Lions got their lame asses kicked again. . . I really hope Bill Ford Sr. finally kicks Matt Millen to the curb this week. The man is an asshole!!!

Hope you can take the "Saucer-Eyed Psycho Bitch" with you to the new place. . . .

If I don't hear from you before, have a Happy Holiday!!

Love ya!!!

HUGGSS!!

God it feels like forever since I've been here. Kinda in the Christmas funk department. Moving? When? Let me know as I am mailing you some stuff soon.

I accumulate so much stuff, in 5 years, I can only imagine 61 years of stuff! I'd help you move if you lived closer. I love Mexican food, the hotter the better.

Big Pissy said...

As a person who just moved after having lived in the same house for 13 years, let me tell you: get rid of as much as you can!

I did.

and three months later I'm still finding shit I should have gotten rid of when I moved!

Mexican food in Texas is the best! :)

I used to go through Waco all the time on my way from Ft Hood to San Antonio......
