Today, when I looked outside, I realized that I wish I could quit my job. It's not that I dislike my job. I just miss having summer's off. I could go wherever I wanted, when I wanted, and it was nice. Absolutely awesomely nice.

The beast that is my mother!

I posted this earlier on Yahoo! Answers!

Should I disassociate myself from my mother?

When I was pregnant with my second child, I was living with my mother in law. My parents were having some trouble paying their bills, and wanted to get government assistance with their utilities. So, my mother asked me if she could say that my son and I live with her. So that her income would be for more people, making her eligible for more money.

During that time, I was looking for an apartment, to move out of my MIL's house. So, I told her that she couldn't use our information. She proceeded to call me selfish and self centered, and all of this other jazz. I stopped talking to her, because I didn't want the extra stress with my pregnancy. Two weeks later, her mother died, and we started talking again.

Three months after I had the baby, I got an apartment, and moved. She saw my place, loved it, and decided to move into an apartment in the same neighborhood. Right around the corner!

Three months ago, the kids started going to daycare. I asked her, if she wouldn’t mind taking me and the kids up to the daycare every morning, and I would give her money for gas. It worked fine, for the first month. But, after that, she started making me late in the morning. I would call heart 7:45 to get me at 8, and she wouldn’t show until 8:15. This makes a huge difference, since I am catching the bus to work from the daycare. This past week, I started calling her earlier in the morning, and telling her that I had to leave earlier. So I was on time.

I just got paid on Friday, but I am running behind on my bills. So, I told her that I wouldn’t be able to give her money this week. I told her this on Saturday. She came over to my house on Sunday, with my brother to take the kids to the playground. I called her yesterday morning, to take me up to the daycare, and she doesn’t even answer the phone. She lets my dad, who almost never answers the phone pick it up.

She has him tell me at 7:45 in the morning that she’s not going to give me a ride. That leaves me no time to get to work on time. Seeing as they already issued a warning my way about lateness, I called out.

I’m not upset about the fact that she decided not to take me to work. I’m upset about the fact that she treated me like so random person and couldn’t tell me herself the day before. I know that she knew that she wasn’t going to give me a ride. She wasn’t even going to call me that morning. Am I wrong to be mad?

I hate the damn bank!!!!!!!

I am so scared right now, that I will be fired from work. Or, possibly written up. This past two weeks, I have been late to work, almost everyday. This is kinda fault of my own, and something that I am trying to fix. I get a ride from my mother every morning to my babies daycare, then I catch the train to work from there. Most mornings, I tell her that I want her to come to my house a 8:00, and I generally will call her at 7:55. She normally says "Ok, I'll be there in 5 minutes." Then show up at 8:15. Occasionally she shows up at 7:55, and complains about waiting, because I'm not ready. The thing is, with me taking the train in the morning, it is a very big difference between 8:00. and 8:15.

Then, one day last week, I call her at 7:55, and my dad answers the phone. He says, "She's in the bathroom, I'll tell her you called." She calls back about 10 minutes later like, "My IBS is acting up, I'll be there in 15 minutes." Since I wait for her in the morning, taking the bus isn't an option, because then I'll be really late. But, that day, she showed up 30 minutes later, and drove me to work, because she was going to the doctor that day. Of course we ran into traffic, and made me so late that I would have had a better chance just taking the bus. I just don't know what to do about it. And, when I tell her that I'm running late, she says, "Oh, well there's nothing you can do now."

So yesterday, same scenario, I call her at 8:04, thinking that if she has more time, she'll still show at the same time. But, she doesn't show up until 8:25. I still had to go to the store to buy some diapers, for my son to go to daycare. So, we go to the store, I grab the stuff in a hurry and go to the counter. The guy scans the stuff, I swipe my card, and the guy tells me "DENIED". I said WHAT?!?!?!, are you serious? So I go out to the car, borrow my mom's phone, and call the bank. Turns out that I had scheduled for them to send out my rent check for this month, way back in April, even though I thought that I had canceled it. So my account was overdrawn a whole bunch. So I go on the online chat with one on the bank people, and try to explain the situation. He tells me that I can't stop payment on the check, because it already posted to my account. Well, at least my rent was paid.

Today, I look at my account, and it is no longer overdrawn. So, I'm wondering where I got money. Turns out they returned the check, and charged me a fee. So, I had to pay them a fee, and when my landlord notices that the check bounced, I'll have another fee to pay.

At least I was on time to work today.

Pregnant? NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, the diaper hunt is over and I am back to continue blogging. This past month has been a very unbusy one for me. Besides diaper hunting, I haven't really been up to much. I have been starting to feel alot less depressed as far as attitude goes, and I'm beginning to think that I suffer with seasonal depression.

But anyway, because who cares about that. I finally have permanent birth control. I have been scared that I was going to get pregnant again, since I gave birth to Donny. But, yesterday, I went to Planned Parenthood, and got my IUD. YAY ME!!!!

Almost forgot. I decided that trying cloth diapers is a good idea. So, I bought a package with prefolds, covers, and snappis, and decided to give it a go. And, it is awesome! I absolutely love the diapers. I want to try other types of cloth diapers and everything. I love the whole cloth diapering thing. With all of this said, if anyone ever decided to take a glance at this blog besides me, you can try cloth diapers too. Tiffany at Nature Moms Blog is offering a cloth diaper giveaway. So, if you'd like to try cloth diapering too, leave her a comment for a chance to win.
