Worn.

I'm feeling really worn out. I had to run all over 3 different counties today for the job. This person has a piece of broken equipment here, that person has a question about a home alarm there, can you come check this job here...... sigh.... I stayed in the car all. damn. day. By the end of the day I was so freakin tired, I stopped off at Jimski's to get hot dogs for everyone for dinner. Yep... Mom of the year right here.

HHH got some news today. Not going to say what it is just yet, but suffice it to say while it makes me happy for HHH, I'm not sure how it I feel about it's effects on me. I guess that's what marriage is all about. Making sacrifices for the one you love, even if you might not like it. (And HHH, if you're reading this, I've followed you every other time we've had to go somewhere, this time is no different. Don't read too much into this post.)

OK, time to get dressed for practice. We have a derby bout this Sunday. Not gonna plug it too much because it's an away game and no one ever goes to watch me anyway. Wow... that sounded really depressing! Fuck it.

Thoughtless

I've noticed a trend with our clientele lately, and I don't much like where it is headed. In the last couple of weeks I have had clients call at the last minute for changes in schedule.... some of them same day, other clients have "forgotten" that it was their day to be cleaned and left doors locked, forgot to have a method of payment available, etc..., and then to top it all off, last week we were cleaning a house that is always shitty to begin with, but then when the girls were half way through they found a whole stash of lice killing shampoo, furniture and bedding spray, etc...... Yep. The house was infested with lice and the client "forgot"to tell us. The girls were skeeved out after finding it and left right away. Unfortunately, they had been bitten by then and I had to seriously disinfect all the towels they had been using there, & the car they drove in! Holy hell people!! How freaking disrespectful is that?!?

I know, I know.... being the housekeepers, we strive to clean for our clients without disturbing them. We try to be noticed for our quality, not, say, a loud talker, or a crazily dressed worker, or even a BAD job..... We really want just the clean house to be what the client remembers most. Still, I would hope that the clients remember that it is a living, breathing person doing the job. When we're treated like less than nothing, it tends to sting a little. From turning off the A/C in the high heat of summer to trying to heap on tons of extra work wit out telling us ahead of time, the disrespect is starting to pile up. The lice thing was the last straw. Can we say "EEEEEWWWWWWW!!!!!!"

I'm not saying shower us with gifts and flowers, but at least kick the air on for when we're there. It's the least you can do for the people who know aaaaaaaallllllllll your dirty little secrets.

Heh, heh. It's always good to "know" things.

Busy Bee.

Ok. Tuesday started off really messed up. The girl who was pregnant came in but was having stomach and back pains. She's only 4 1/2 months along!!! We called 911 immediately and sent her off to the hospital. Later that afternoon she finally called me and said that she and the baby were OK. She has low blood pressure, the baby is breech, and she may have placenta previa. Wow.

I am really tired from derby practice last night. We were hitting hard last night. I don't think we should be hitting too hard right before the bout though. Case in point, we had some newer skaters going around for a practice run and when the seasoned jammer came knocking through the pack, she smashed into one of the new girls and down she went. We think it's just a bruised knee or something like that, but still, we shouldn't be killing each other right before we need to be going and killing the other team!!! BTW, the bout is this Sunday at Florida Wheels in Bradenton. It's supposed to start at 6:30pm, but it's probably going to start at 7pm. Come watch!!

OK, I need to get going this morning. Being tired isn't going to stop the kids from going to school or the job from needing to get done.

Have a good day!

Kiss, Kiss, Bang, Bang

  • I and the family was woken up by a huge storm last night. Granted it wasn't anything like Mississippi had to endure, but it was still loud, bright, and frightening.
  • My son said he peed himself because the lightning scared him. He was laughing when he admitted this, so I suspect he was just going for the comedic laugh.
  • I decided that I wasn't going to take the kids to school in the thunderstorm. It was bad enough I had to go to work in it. I got them up, gave everyone shots & breakfast, then sent them to watch cartoons.
  • As soon as I got to work, the sun came out. Fucker.
  • Monday at work was all sorts of messed up. One client canceled, another didn't remember to leave the garage door unlocked for us, and during this I was trying to get shit arranged for the rest of the week. Sigh....
  • I have an even more jam packed day tomorrow.
  • Sunday we have our SRG bout against The Bradentucky team. Can. Not. Wait.
  • One of the roller girl's significant other is an artist. He designed our SRG logo for us and last week he put out a facebook message to us that he was willing to design personal logos for each skater! How cool is that?!? I thought about it for a while then messaged him back with information about me, who I am, and why I have my name and number. I am 5th or 6th in line for getting my own logo that can be put on merch we can sell for the league..... AWESOME!!!
  • I expect all of you to buy a t-shirt! OR AT LEAST A BUMPER STICKER!!!!
  • Aunt Flo is beginning to make her exit, so my joints are starting to lay off. Gosh knows I need all my movement for Sunday!
  • I'm watching WWE tonight w/HHH. It's Draft night. Is it bad I care more about this draft than the NFL one?
  • Probably not.
  • Time to hit the hay so I can get up and do it all over again!!

?

I could write about how I still feel really painful from Aunt Flo deciding to be a bitch this month.
I could write about how I wanted to spend the day with HHH because that's what makes me feel better.
I could write about how much derby has changed my outlook on life.
I could write about how I was so sad at one point in time this month I made a criss cross pattern in my arm.
I could write about how I wanted to be a Sillybring this past Saturday, but the pain in my joints made that impossible.
I could write about how I almost got the house cleaned this past weekend, but I only had enough energy for a couple rooms.
I could write about how I am starting to worry that the fibromyalgia that stalks my family is sneaking up on me.
I could write about how Beerher sounded so frickin awesome from all the tweets I read.
I could write about how work is starting to shape up nicely.
I could write about how HHH is trying to find another job but I don't want to move again.
I could write about how my son is becoming a jerk. I see problems in the future.
I could write about how I really want to get away for the weekend with my family to Universal. We haven't been there together yet this year. What's the point of having annual passes when you don't use them??
I could write about how I am grateful to all my fans on Facebook who liked my fan page.
I could write about how.......

Nah, that's enough.... and I didn't write a damn thing!

The Grind.

It happens every month. Like clockwork, I start to feel the grinding in my joints, almost like there is sand in between my bones. I feel the grinding every time I move. Each little step aches. I'm lucky it only happens when Aunt Flo swings by for a visit, but this time is the worst so far. I'm attributing this to the fact that the storm that is currently menacing the mid south right now will be rolling this way. Yeah, yeah.... I feel the weather when it's coming this way.

So I basically started Saturday by sleeping in till 10am, riding with HHH to get a mediocre breakfast at Waffle House, then we came back home where I cleaned the shit hole that was my children's bathroom.Man, I never knew 3 kids could make such a mess! I had enough get up and go for that bathroom and then my kitchen before the pain got the best of me and I had to stop. After resting for a bit, HHH and I had to run up to the local Wall to Wall Mart to get some fresh veggies to roast on the grill. As we're riding up there, we slowed and stopped for a red light. Just as it turns green HHH goes to hit the gas and something popped and the bike lurched forward violently! I, just as violently, lurched forward boobs first into HHH's back.

P-A-I-N!!

Lot's of it. Aunt Flo has my bosom feeling a bit tetchy. (that is so a word!) Let's just say I'm not gonna be sleeping on my stomach any time soon.

So now I am medicating myself liberally with booze and Tylenol, watching TV and hoping the people of Mississippi are holding strong after the tornadoes that have blown away parts of their state! I made the comment on Twitter that Yazoo Cityt MS was blown away so where was Ray Stevens going to sing about now? Yeah.... not seeming so funny right about now. Stay strong people, and on a lighter note, I hope everyone is having a totally awesome time at Beerher, Sillybring, and Tequilacon. I'll raise a glass to you as I sit in my comfy recliner with my cranberry/vodka.

In conclusion, the breakdown here is pain, bad weather, and alcohol.

Sounds like a good weekend to me!

Weekend Weekend Week-END!

Hi there! I'm tired. It has been a whirlwind of a week. Wanna know why? Well...
  • Had to go clean the crazy woman on Monday again. I cannot wait till they sell that place. This woman's toxic aura just oozes evil.
  • Also on Monday the new lady who was supposed to be taking a managerial position with the company called in AGAIN saying one of her dogs was in labor. This isn't an unusual thing since she raises pure bred dogs. What gets on my nerves is when she interviewed, she said "Oh my mother is retired and living with us so I won't have anything to keep me from work. My mom can do it." Uh, nope.
  • The we had Wednesday roll around and same employee was going into on of the downtown buildings to clean a condo and the building security wouldn't quit following her. She calls me and asks me to come to the building. I get there and she basically takes off!! Totally left her partner and everything! Come to find out she had worked for another company before and while she was cleaning in that building she was caught on video stealing entrance rugs from the buildings garages.
  • Said employee was fired by me on Friday.
  • Derby practice has been off the chain lately! We learned a totally cool move on Thursday called the "Waitress Whip". It is totally cool and involves speed, coordination, skating backwards, and blocking. I am in love with it now! Can't wait to learn the next new thing!!!
  • I have been sick all week. Not cough cough, hack hack sick, but OMG I have got to stop eating gluten because I'm eventually gonna die if I don't sick. My Aunt Flo swinging around this coming week wasn't helping any since I was craving supersized fudge rounds. I'm so Screwed.

So there you go. That is just a smidgen of what my week was like! I do want to give a special shout out to SCARlet Frenzy for throwing some business my way in the form of employing my company to clean her offices! Thanks babe! You are awesome!!!!

Alive


e
l
c



Yes I am alive. I know I haven't been on here lately, things have been busy. What with derby, work, derby, work, kids, husband, work, derby..... well, you get the picture. Anywho, today was "Take Your Offspring To Work" day. HHH took Junior with him, and I took Morgan with me. I even got her a uniform and everything!Morgan was working hard first thing this morning. She folded towels, helped fill bottles of cleaner, helped me with scheduling and accounting, then she went to the bank, the vacuum repair shop, checking houses, and then on a couple of estimates. She did it all and did it all really well! I am so proud of my little worker!

Now back to the grind.

Earth Day


I am a warrior for our planet every day. It's one of the things I REALLY enjoy about my job. I love the fact that we can clean something with all natural products and it does the same job as using harsh, crappy chemicals. Living in Sarasota where the ocean is so close, that really hits home. I love working over by the beach and on the intercoastal, seeing the dolphins play in the waves and the birds teeter in the sky.

It's the only planet we got.
Let's not screw that up, k?

Again


Monday wasn't all that great. I feel like I'm doing the week before again.

Come on Tuesday...... don't be a shit fuck like last week!! I'm counting on you!

Quickie

This is a quick one written at work while the Boss Lady isn't looking!!! I Have derby tonight, and dinner, and working late, and ,.... oh jeeze,.... a fuck ton of shit I have to have done so I can get the hell out of Dodge this weekend and go see Chicago the band with CissaFireheart! I can't wait. I wanted to stay home with HHH this weekend because of his "episode" on Tuesday, but he has threatened me with bodily harm if I don't go. I guess it seems I am a little stressed, what with the kids, job, and everything. So seeing as he says he is feeling fine, I am heading out bright and early Saturday morning and headed for Fireheart mansion. I told Cissa I was bringing my gear so we could go skating with her minions before going to the concert.

On a totally unrelated aside.....SOME DAMN FOOL STOLE ONE OF MY CHERRY PEPSI'S FROM THE WORK FRIDGE!!!!!!

How do I know? Well, I only took two of them in to work and today when I went to the fridge to get on, it was missing. Only a sad empty space in the shelf where I so lovingly placed it yesterday morning!!!! WTH man?!? Anywho.... Boss Lady is going to use her fancy new cameras to check and see who it was. I think the girls forgot she installed them! Hee hee hee!!!!! That makes me think, has anyone had to deal with workplace fridge theft, and what did you do to find/catch the thief??? Comment on this for me!

OK. Back to work.

Bad to Worse

How do you take a week that's only one day in and make it completely worse?

Have to take your husband to the ER because he's having chest pains and trouble breathing...... at age 31!!!!!

HHH's family has a history of early heart disease. His dad had his FIRST heart attack at 26, then his second at 28. When it comes to heart trouble and chest pains, we don't take any chances. Unfortunately for us, the hospital ER didn't do very much but give him an aspirin, and percocet, and take his blood twice. No CT scan, no echo test.... nothing. They kept him there for 7 hours and all they could tell us was it wasn't a heart attack. Thanks. Glad to see all those student loans are paying off for ya there. They didn't even remember to take his IV out. He did that himself and then as we were leaving the hospital HHH gets a call on his cell. It's the nurse asking if he still has his IV in because she didn't remember taking it out. Sigh..... This is our medical care system we are shelling out for.

So now HHH is feeling better. What ever it was went away thank goodness. Now I just get to worry till the next time.

DOUBLE SIGH.........

Bad


  • Had a shitty day. The two new girls were late, but then were put out when I had rearranged the day so they didn't have as much time as before. Uh, sorry bout your luck but when you are consistently late I can't count on you and you get the short shifts. If it wasn't for Boss Lady putting them on tomorrow's schedule, they would have been shafted for tomorrow. I'm done playing with people!
  • People still can't fucking drive around here! I swear to Baby Jebus the next fucker that pulls out in front of me and slows down to 5mph is gonna get the holy living shit beat outta them with the appendage I rip offa them and then I'm gonna stuff them in their trunk and push them in the bay!!!!
  • I had about 3 different customers forget that today was their day to be cleaned. WTF?? It's called a calender people! Fucking USE it!!!! And try to wrap your teeny brains around the fact that when you change your cleaning day for whatever stupid ass reason, just because you moved up or back a week doesn't mean you get to go every two weeks from then. You have to get back to your regular schedule or you fuck over everyone else that has that day. No you aren't special. No you cannot change permanently. Suck it up, buttercup!
  • I didn't make the next bout roster. Guess I suck ass. Go me.
  • Gobo is being an ass. He keeps getting up into shit and destroying shit. I didn't want to crate him, but it looks like I may have to. Boo.
  • I miss Toby.
  • Please let Tuesday be a better day. That is all.

Sprung!

Sunday was spent relaxing and planting my new containers full of herbs. It was raining when I woke up, but it stopped later yet still stayed cloudy. Yeah... not the best of weather for things I had planned for doing, such as skating the trail and riding the motorcycle with HHH. Bah!
Still.... it looks to be a really great start for my garden. I need to have fresh herbs for cooking. I miss having fresh rather than dried stuff for seasoning.

And now on to the week at hand. What do you all have on tap for your week?

Weekend Baby!!

Thanks for stopping by Blondefabulocity. Blondefabulous isn't in right now. After working her ass off for the last two weeks thanks to everyone taking vacation all at the same time, Blonde is going to take the next couple of days and relax. She's going to go to the pool. She's going to go to the beach. She may scope out the competition in Bradenton by attending the Bradentucky Bombers bout. She is definitely going to drink a little bit too much, and ride the motorcycle and have naughty time with HHH!

And she is definitely NOT going to go by the office. At All!

It may not be an actual vacation, but it will have to do. At the tone, please record your message. When you are finished recording, press the pound button. To leave a call back number, press 5 now.


BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

Saturday, In The Park....

I am making plans and getting things organized. I have something important coming up.....

Chicago will be playing the last night of Mardi Gras at Universal!!

And yes I know it won't be the exact same guys, well, a few of them will be the same, but I Looooooooove Chicago. All of it! I listened to their early stuff, (25 or 6 to 4, If You Leave Me Now, Color My World, etc...) and their 80's hits, (Hard To Say I'm Sorry, Hard Habit To Break, Stay The Night, etc....) and I have to say they are a musical entity I have always wanted to see in concert. And I am just lucky enough to be able to go with the lovely and amazing CissaFireheart!! Yes, on April 17th I will be bunking down at Fireheart Mansion with the Minions and Misk. I'm even going to bring my gear so we can go skating!! Hopefully the vehicles won't have any problems this time...lol!

On a semi unrelated but related aside, while I was on the phone with Cissa talking about the concert and whatnot, I saw something that scared the holy living hell out of me. You all know I got HHH a motorcycle, and we have been out riding all over lately. Well, as I was talking to Cissa, I see this guy with his shirt off over on the shoulder of the road (and he was hot!), as I got closer I see the smashed crotch rocket laying in SEVERAL pieces and the Ford Excursion that has the rear gate caved in! I start freaking out on the phone to Cissa, and now I'm noticing the guy holding his shoulder and walking around in a really agitated manner. I imagine he was cussing up a storm while he was doing that too! I just got a shiver because I was thinking back to several times when HHH and I have been riding where someone just pulled right in front of us without a thought as to if we can slow down in time, if we had the ability to change lanes in case we couldn't, etc..... I imagine there was two possible scenarios that could have happened. Either the guy was being a showoff dick and wasn't paying attention, or like I said above, the Excursion pulled out in front of him and he had no choice but to hit them. Either way, the dude had on a full face helmet and I just bet that saved his life!

HELMETS SAVE LIVES!!!

So now I am at home relaxing before Derby practice and watching my incredibly sexy HHH make me dinner! With no shirt on!! Bonus!!!!

Uh..... I gotta go..... dinner!

Music


I've started adding more music to my iPhone. I need music to skate to, music to run to, music to work to......

I need music.

I was always a musical person. From when I was a child to right now at age 37, I can chart my entire life to music. I can match songs to Jr. High and High school, boyfriends, events... you name it. I work better with music in the background. I was a band geek and learned about all sorts of music. Now I add songs according to how they affect me when I am listening to them. Just this past year I got back into listening to Information Society, but lost the whole album when HHH accidentally downloaded a virus to our lap top at the time. It had a good beat to run to. Now I have been getting newer music.... Lady Antebellum, John Mayer, Pitbull..... the mix is both weird and eclectic. Toss in some Weird Al Yankovic and Michael Jackson and my iPhone sounds certifiably insane!!!!

Meh..... what do you all have on your music lists??

Good Days

Today was pretty darn good! Work went almost decent, I got out at a decent hour, and afterwards HHH and I rode down to Spanish Point Marina to have a drink with the other maintenance guy, J. We took the motorcycles down and it was absolutely perfect. We got drinks and sat outside by the water as the sun went down. Above is a photo of the view from our table. It was nice to sit back, sip some wine (for me) and beer(for them) and just talk. I was in my derby outfit because practice was later so of course I was getting stared at by every damn body. What is it about fishnets and knee high socks that makes people go batty??

Unfortunately, HHH and J bought me enough wine to get me pretty much schnockered! Yeah, and I had to ride a motorcycle home?!? Oh shit! Lucky for me HHH got me back OK. Didn't even lose me off the back of the bike! Next problem..... Practice for derby at 8:45. Yeah, that wasn't gonna happen. I was already having problems standing up, I DID NOT want to put that hot mess on wheels! So I stayed home and let HHH take advantage of my tipsy nature.... heh..... for about 2 hours! So now I'm writing this at 10pm and I am finally getting un-tipsy. Yay for being sober! Now to go get in bed...... heh, heh.......

Oh hoooooooooooney..............

Still Riding High!!

Bone Crusher has been at it again!! She's been taking the photo's she took last Saturday and tweaking them with titles. It looks awesome! I am still riding the high from the sheer excitement and exhilaration! Heck! It got me through today's cleanings, and that's saying something since I had to clean the crazy woman's place today!

So that's all for now. Not too much going on right now. Hopefully as the snow birds leave things will settle down and I'll be able to take more time to blog, Lord knows they give me fodder for it every day!!

More From Saturday.

What up yo?
Skate intro's w/ Scrap Metal.
Knocking down the opposing team!
Group skater photo.
1 second to smash!

I swear, this sport is better than therapy. I can get all my frustrations out and still have a good time. GRR played a little dirty, But I held my own as did the rest of the team. I had two really good sweeps at the end of the bout where I set two different girls into the suicide seats! That's what the folks pay to see! All the above photos were taken by the lovely Menopausal Maniac, or as we like to call her, "Bone Crusher" since she was the one who broke Scrap Metal's leg at practice last month. She got lot's of photos and you can view some of them on my Facebook and Flickr.

Can't wait till May 2nd Bout now!
