And I steal from Angel!

Okay so the first five people to comment to this will receive something handmade from me made by my own little hands!

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be a poem. It may be a painting or brownies or a scarf. I like to pretend I'm Martha Stewart so it could be ANYTHING.
- I am not to be held liable if you do not like what I make you. If you do not like what I make and send you I suggest you give it someone else who is a grateful and lovely person, unlike yourself.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to repost this. I mean, okay. You don't HAVE to do it--but think about how easy of a thing this is and the impact you will have on someone's day. IT'S WORTH IT.

Coworker:  Oh, how's your dad?  It was nice to meet him yesterday.  He seems like a real good dad.

Me:  ::choke:: Ha!  Mm, I don't know about that.  It's a love-hate relationship.

There is nothing more frustrating at work, right now, outside of constantly being ignored by your own boss!

Why do I even bother?

I may as well live in a bubble, by myself.  The end.

Angst: A rant.

Please do not
... berate me.
... dismiss me.
... play the victim.
... expect attention.
... make assumptions.

... I have feelings, too.
... that doesn't help the situation.
... this only makes it worse for yourself.
... that it didn't really work out well for Chicken Little.
... coming to me with a complaint is far more admirable than complaining behind my back.

I refuse to
... lash out.
... be forgotten.
... let it get to me.
... be the enabler.
... be underestimated.

I'm running out of steam on so many levels.

WTF 2008?!

Ever heard of a series of unfortunate events?  I never truly belived it could happen - that was until it happened to me.  I can only remember doing a whole lot more crying this year than I have laughing.  A terrible truth.  But as I reflect on the year - I have hope for the future.

January 2nd - Mammie passed
January 3rd - Auntie Dot passed
January 12th - Momma Mac passed
March 17th - I broke my ankle
Easter - my aunt is a scathing bitch and ruins Easter (my grandmother's favorite holiday) - Hurricane Patsy continues to plague the family to this day.
May 19th - baby Katie Manning born (with a heart defect - HLHS)
July - I go on vacation alone
Summer - family friend passes
October - bookstore coworker's father passes
My 26th birthday - forgotten and crapped on
November 9th - baby Katie Manning passes
November 16th - coworker falls out a window sleepwalking and breaks his neck

I have never in my life had so much happen to and around me in such a short time period (in the grand scheme of things).  This certainly isn't a whoa-is-me.  I just cannot believe the culmination that is going to be the unpleasant memory of this 2008.  It's a surreal thing and I thought it couldn't get worse after losing the most important person in my family.  However, attending the funeral of a five month-old baby girl that didn't have a chance to live out her parents' hopes and dreams.

A father that just wanted to walk his daughter down the aisle for her special day, instead, carried her casket to her grave.  For more about Katie's life and fight, read here.  I guess my message  ultimately here is that if you seriously think you've got it bad, read that blog from beginning to end.  Then try, just try to explain to me that your life is unfair.  Go out and do something about it.  I have learned so much from a tiny child.  It's so easy to take life for granted.  Go.  Be. Do.  You are what you do.  You can only fail if you don't try.  You can only succeed if you fail and try, try, try again.

Gotta love being single.  Can't get what you want, even if you wanted it.
