Away on an island...



You are going to crash on a remote island with no hope of rescue (think LOST, but alone and nothing supernatural). You have one standard size suitcase. You put anything in it that will fit, regardless of whether you actually own it, are able to afford it, or could get it through airport security. What do you bring? 


Gonna have to go with the same answer as last week:
My Hubbly.






I'd Never survive without him... Saddest part? I know he'd fit.
I've stuffed him in my standard many many times... :D

Who said it better?



Just in time to be in the Thanksgiving spirit...
...some great Thanksgiving Quotes!



"Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action." ~W.J.Cameron


"On Thanksgiving Day, all over America, families sit down 
to dinner at the same moment - Halftime." ~Unknown


"Thanksgiving is America's national chow-down feast, the one occasion each year
when gluttony becomes a patriotic duty." ~Michael Dresser 


"Coexistence: 
What the farmer does with the turkey - until Thanksgiving." ~Mike Connolly




"Thanksgiving, man. Not a good day to be my pants." ~Kevin James




"The funny thing about Thanksgiving, or any huge meal,
is that you spend 12 hours shopping for it, 
then chopping cooking, basting, and blanching...
Then it takes 20 mins to eat it, then everyone just sits around in a food coma,
& it takes 4 hours to clear it all up!" ~Ted Allen




"You have been given a gift of 86,400 seconds today.
Have you used one to say 'Thank you'?" ~William A. Ward




"I love Thanksgiving turkey. It's the only time in L.A. natural breast!"  
~Arnold Schwarzenegger

Just a few letters for you...



Today's Letters



Dear Hubbly, I love how much you snuggle me just to help me get to sleep. 
Watching you tip-toe around while I pretend to snore is adorable.
Dear Parking Maid, You keep staring at me as I put on my make-up, checking your watch, & waiting. I will pay the parking fee, soon as I walk my little butt to the box 
with my change. It's just really cold, & I'm stalling.
Dear Lint Roller, I really wish you would just do your job & clean my coat in 1 or 2 papers, instead or dawdling & using 5 or 6. I REALLY don't have time for this. 
Dear Head of Hair, why must you look absolutely adorable the night before work, 
only to be flat & greasy the next morning. Do you hate me that much??
Dear Ryan, Thank you for loving me the way you do, 
as much as you do, for the last 9 years.
I love you.

2 week work UPDATE




My first two weeks at my new job have been... a little rough.

To be honest, I'm nervous about what I can & cannot say here for the first time ever. I've never really worried about the things I say here in my own little world, aside from trying my best to stay politically correct & as family friendly as I can. I understand that it does not always happen, but atleast I make an effort.

So, all that aside, working my new job has been... for lack of better words, rough.
Not because the job itself is taxing... Actually, it's really very simple. It's more the enviroment there that is almost to much to handle. Now, I pride myself on being very mature.
Yes, my Husband & I like to indulge in childish moments now & again,
(him ALOT more than me.) but I believe that it is key to living a full & happy life. 
Now with that, the cumulative mindset at work is very childish- high school. Not all, but most.
Fake smiles, two-faced grins, back-stabbing hugs... & the whispers. The whispers are the worst. I understand that gossip is the common in most workplace. Especially when the majority of your co-workers are female or gay boys.

(Out of a hundred people working there,
5 are straight men, & they gossip just as much as the rest!)

If it were just normal, petty things, I wouldn't even be bothered. But on my FIRST day on shift, about to clock out, a co-worker turns to me and says:

"You know, I really like you! Your not half as bad as they made you out to be!"


EXCUSE ME?!?


Who are "they"? What was said? I'm glad you like me & all but 
what the FREAKING HELL?!?!?!?!?!?!

Again I try to turn away. To not pay attention. Then I am told who it is that has been spouting of these uncomfortably rude bits about me...Some one I really thought higher than. Yea, we might not get along outside of work, but I would never go to where she worked & talk crap about her. (She works with me now.) I had actually said really NICE things about her the whole day! 

So when normal people get to start a job fresh, 

I get tons of preconceived notions to prove wrong. 


That seriously hit a nerve with me. But again, I soldiered on. Then the next day, I hear that ANOTHER person who I was being really nice to had over heard somewhere that I had said we didn't really get along. & she decided that ment every time I was nice to her, I was really just being a kiss-ass. 


ARE YOU SERIOUS?!?!?


I had NEVER said that. Not even anything CLOSE! & I was beeing nice because thats what NORMAL people do... plus, I have NEVER been a "kiss-ass". EVER. & i sure as HELL don't plan on starting NOW. 
uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuugh.


Know this: I live with being extremely Bi-polar. (Among other things.)  I have to make a choice every hour, every day to be happy, nice & postitive. Sometimes, I don't win that battle, Most of the time I do. But it is STILL a struggle. My manic is anger, it is the easiest for me. So when I work my butt off to be nice to someone, & the baisically spit in my face, It's a HUGE trigger for me. I want SO BADLY to show them exactly how nice I WAS being, & how NOT nice I really can be. I have to remind myself that it is not thier fault that they do not know how hard I am working. But It is also not my fault that they are simple minded & niave. 

*Juuuuuust BREATHE, Jaimie. & thank god that irrationality & stupid is NOT contagious.*

So now I have calmed down. I have taken my breath.
What am I told next? 


"Oh, By the way. One of the girls heard you mention that you had a miscarriage. That made her uncomfortable & she did not feel like it was appropriate work conversation. Just a heads up."

THAT my friends, was my final straw.
I could no longer control my rage.
I. WAS. LIVID.


Let me explain why:
  • My lead is preggo. She doesnt say MUCH, but I do get to hear bits hear and there everyday about the nursery she's painting, her sleepiness from anemia, or how the baby is kicking. 
  • Melissa's baby, (Niecie) is talk of the town. Not that I mind, but since everyone wants common ground to talk about, I hear about it from EVERY SINGLE CO-WORKER.
  • (This same day) I received an announcement email full with picture, weight, length, & footprints of a co-worker-I-havn't-even-MET-yet's new baby.
 
 
Now all I did was simply state that my husband & I had experienced a miscarriage last October but we are doing good, & trying again, when ASKED if I had any kids. 
 
Seriously, If I get called into the office or talked to for that when EVERYONE else is talking about THIER little ones, I will have a COW. 
 
A giant speckled one that gives strawberry milk & a swift kick in your ASS.
 
Just because mine was not actually born? 
Please say something & push me over my edge. 
I'm already hanging on by fingertips as it is.

So yea, I'd say this past 2 weeks has been... a bit rough.

Just a bit.

OMG! ...My bad...



I just realized that I completely didn't have my MFB Questions of the week set up!
This job is running me out.

So THIS week, we are going to have 2 questions, Last weeks, AND this weeks:




If you were given the choice of having $500 to spend on yourself OR $5,000 to spend on someone else, which would it be, what would you buy, and why? 

I thought originally this would be a hard choice, but in the end, I'm way to much of a giver. There are so many people that I could help with that money, it would be completely worth it.






In 50 words or less, tell us your life story. 

Loving, loyal, motherly, & trustworthy. Out on my own since 15, been with my husband just as long. Singer, writer, baker, photographer, artist. Finally married in 2009, Miscarriage in 2010. Pink lover, Pug owner. 
Addicted Keurig User. Living life with OCD, Bipolar, & PCOS. Love blogging, though not very good at it. 
Planner, organizer, Secret COD player.


Make sure you weigh in
& tell us your answers!!
