My aching back…

I am just about done cleaning out my inbox.  I thought I was done with this bullshit when I left Corp. America but alas, I’m not.  I have been catching up on Weeds on Showtime today, I only missed about three episodes, and I have been looking for a new Bed/Desk.  My bed is killing my back, right after I had my oldest daughter I was rear-ended by some asshole on a rainy day like today.  I was so concerned for my little one (she was about two months old) I took her to the Pediatrician but never went to the Doctor’s for me to be checked out.  Apparently, I found out a couple of years later, the accident may be the cause of my lower lumbar pain I experience constantly.  And since I either have insurance and no time (because of the job providing the insurance) or time and no insurance to get the problem totally checked out and (if possible) fixed.  I do however make sure I have an excellent bed and frame (most times) and I try to do Pilates everyday *Sidebar, if you have back problems, Pilates is for you.  I feel like a million bucks whenever I do it.

I digress, I bought a cheap and cheesy bed that I have been sleeping on for the past six months ( I have a habit of throwing out the bed that I have had when I’m in a relationship when the relationships over, crazy I know) I just got around to getting rid of TV Guys bed recently and the replacement sucks!  I wake up in pain just about everyday.  So now I have been on QVC.com all day looking for a replacement because I just can’t take it anymore.  PS, I eff love QVC.com, they are cheap about a $100.00 more than in stores but they have excellent customer service, great warranties and nice shit.  The other customers are adamant about posting likes and dislikes to their site (I have never been steered wrong by them) and man can they be brutal.  So I am bed searching.  If any of you guys have a suggestion about beds, please feel free to shoot me a comment.  Too many more sleepless nights because of back pain will send me over the edge.

Later Days,

Cleaning out my inbox is a BITCH…

Hello all… Due to Hurricane Irene, I have had no internet, no cable and way too much time on my hands, smh.  I have, however, had time to type over 20,000 words for my novel, it has changed direction again.  Made (temporary) amends with my ex (my youngest daughter’s father that I sent to jail for domestic abuse), enrolled in school (again) and have become friends with my neighbor who is an extremely funny Drag Queen from Africa.  When I have finally given the book I am writing to my agent, I will definitely pen something about “her” and her boyfriend.

As you can see without access to the outside world I have been extremely productive.  The girls are “tucked away” in their school schedules so my days are pretty free again.  I will be starting school in the Winter 1 semester if there aren’t any unforeseen circumstances.  The young bike I was riding is now given away, lol.  I got tired of the constant maintenance.  Having a boyfriend or bed buddy for a single mom can be like having another child, which is why I wasn’t in a rush to get into another relationship, even though I am still looking for Mr. Right for me. I am still quite busy as you can see  and am trying to find time to update that blasted advice column that my stupid ass decided to start a while ago.  Since that bitch Irene hit the East Coast I haven’t been online except once (using above mentioned neighbor’s internet connection) because  I used that time to update my status on Facebook rather check my inbox, I had over 2000 emails.  I would love to tell you that 1500 of them were spam but only three were 😦  So I have dedicated today to inbox cleanup day. My neck, back  and my hands are all sore.  I took a break to blog and to catch up on all of my favorite shows I have missed, including the season finale of True Blood,(any other fangers out there scream OMG at the TV when it ended.)  I hope to be through them by tonight and to be caught up on my sister/brother bloggers’ lives by Sunday Night (You guys have been busy while I was away 70 emails were just from you guys).  So you can look forward to my cynical, paranoid and strangely hilarious comments in the next couple of days.

Being without internet made me feel like I was in the dark ages, so glad to be back.

Later Days,
