A Year Gone Bye.......

I made it thru Friday...September 19th....One year ago that day I got the worst phone call of my life.....My Best Friend passed away.....It was horrible....It was a Wednesday and that weekend I was going to go back to Illinois to see her....It was something I had to do....As you can tell I waited a week too long!!!!...Please any one who has the feeling they NEED TO SEE SOMEONE THAT THEY LOVE NEXT WEEK PLEASE DON'T WAIT!!!!!!.......
Any way my daughter called me thru the day to make sure I was ok....Physically I was but emotionally a wreck....I dreaded work I just knew something would happen and I would have a melt down....I warned the people I work with so they would know just to let me Melt.....Luckily nothing happened.....I cried some.....And worked....I sent a text to the girls that I was thinking of them and missed everyone....Then I got one back from one that said they were at the gravesite drinking coffee and thinking of me too..Yeah I cried some more but it made me feel like a part of me was there too.......
I will always miss my friend she was a lunatic (to use her daughter description that fits...That is what we love about my dear friend) and her daughters have so much of her in them that it is good....But don't tell the oldest I don't want her to worry about being sane....LOL...It is ok it is the rest of the world not any of us!!!!!...Well I better quit rattling mmmm I miss that about my friend also...She was so AWESOME.....Crazy or Not....

2nd shift life sucks!

I work 2nd shift at a local factory..which means I have NO life other than work sleep work. Oh and I don't dare to plan anything on a weekend that is just a waste since my supervisor somehow knows I have plans and I am almost always mandatory to work on that Saturday. Yeah I know it is all a coincidence but this shift sucks..oh well I have a good paying job..rarely see my husband, hey we don't have time to not get along so we should be married forever! Not like my past marriages but that is definetly a whole other story..Me and my soap opera life...I know this is boring but hey I get to vent some how...
I do have great things in my life..Like my husband I think I remember what he looks like..I have 2 great kids who are grown and live away...another reason this shift sucks by the time I get off work Friday nite and sleep I still don't have time to visit them. I have 3 Grandkids. Not that I get to see them much either..But if I didn't have my job I couldn't afford to see them when I can... I won't even get into the price of Gasoline! At home I have a 2 and 1/2 year old spoiled dachshund, a old cat that we are guessing at about 12 to 13 years old..We adopted her from the pound and her age was guessed at 3 to 4 then and we have had her 9 years...Then there is the orphan kitten my husband brought home and told me not to get attatched to. So guess who got attached first. yeah it is his cat!. the kitten is approximately 7 weeks old now, and is a terror! The old Cat hates him and the dog is jealous. well enough of this...off to sleep I go so I can go to work later today.
