Where do I begin? What a day and evening!
I took pudd'n to the park and I noticed a mom watching my son. She approached me, her daughter was also autistic. Her daughter was in school and she was there with her son. We chatted for quiet some time. After the park, I went to the mall to get pudd'n some lunch and use some "freebie" coupons at Victoria Secrets. I went to the cosmetics part of V.S. first and got my mascara, since I also had $10.00 off, I got a perfume/lotion combo. Could not pass up that deal. Then I had to go to the "lingerie" department to get the other "freebie". Pudd'n was patient as a hungry little boy could be. When the sales girl tried to sell me on one of the bras I told her point blank "there is NOTHING in this store that will fit my curves". She gave me a blank look, ugh, listen lady, take a GOOD look. I am NOT a size 2. So I got my free perfume and left.
My girls came over and what fun it was!!! Lili was FINALLY here! Definitely did miss her energy. Venus brought her friend Dru. Poor thing wanted me to read her cards. I told her "now I'm a bit drunk, so I may not read them that good". Little miss smarty pants came back with "well the last time I was here, you were drunk, I see a pattern". Yeah, and your point is????
Venus, if you get your sweet ass to this site, BRING DRU WITH YOU ALWAYS!!
The girl knows the script to Super Troopers!!! OMG! She kept up with Lili! It was like hearing the movie at my dinner table!
Pudd'n delighted us all by running around naked, ok, maybe it was just me. He has a cute butt. Every mother thinks their child has a cute butt. My nephew & niece were over earlier to go to a hockey game with my husband. They brought a long a friend. The boys were running through the house with Pudd'n , Nikki was playing her saxophone and it was utter chaos. We loved it. Steve looked at me and said "so this is what a normal family may be like?" When they left, Pudd'n was so sad. He cried for a good 1/2 hour. I wanted to curl up with him and cry too. I comforted him as best as he would let me. I tried every trick in the book. My poor baby, it is so hard to find kids that will go into his world and play by his rules. It is a knife in my heart.

Well so much for sleeping in...........
Of course since Pudd'n has the day off, he's up with Daddy at crack o' dawn. Fuck! Oh well, it feels nice not having to get him ready and rush out the door. I'm looking about my house and putting off cleaning it. Ugh, where are the brownies to come clean in the night? Come on now, I leave cakes & ale for the wee folk after ritual! *Heavy Sigh*
Going to have a full house tonight. Steve is taking our niece & nephew and a little friend to a hockey game. Soon as they leave the girls will be coming over. I've got two new people joining us. Well technically Dru has been here before, she just hasn't done any "witchy" stuff with us yet. I've got my steaks marinating and don't worry Athena, you will get your pot pie too. First girls to get here at 6 pm gets to park in my drive way! (Parking SUCKS here). Well, I'd better go clean something. See you all tonight!

Well the teacher never accepted my phone call OR called me back. I went over her head to the principal. He was not much help either. I have to make an appointment to come in to speak with him and the teacher in a private meeting. He just said "the teacher and the staff felt you would not be a good match to work with the student". Okay, riiiiiiiiight. That is why he did all the work I asked of him. So I said I wanted an appointment. It won't be until after their spring break, I think I will make it and then cancel on them last minute. Spiteful? Yes. I don't give a fuck any more. I worked in a class today and what a difference in the energy! The teacher was friendly, gave direction and her aid was really nice too. Yesterday's class was like being the unpopular girl in the class. The aids were cold and distant, the teacher did not give direction. I've got some Two Buck Chuck, I'll be marinating up some steaks (and myself) for my girls tomorrow night. If you girls are REALLY good, I'll make pot pie AND the steak with fix'ns .

Today I am going to call the teacher and see what exactly is her reason for feeling that I was not qualified enough to work with T. We'll see if she has the balls to talk to me today, Lord knows she didn't have any yesterday. I know I won't recommend her to any one if they ask. If she can't properly communicate to me, how can she teach non verbal children? Challenging children?
Last night I pulled a 3 card spread asking about this situation. I got
King of cups
9 of swords
5 of cups
It took a minute for me to get the message, but it was loud & clear. When I had told Steve what was going on he put it to me this way:
Back when we were house hunting, we both fell in love with a place on a street called Telmo. Our bid was not accepted and the house was sold to some one else. We were crushed. The housing market was on the rise and everything with in our price range was a dump. We were afraid we'd never find anything we liked (the rental we were living in was sold and we had 30 days to move out). But then a few weeks later we found the current home that we are living in. Needless to say, we love it here. I've got a yard & huge patio that I would not of had had on Telmo St. I'm 5 min. from my horses & job.
Steve asked me, where would you be rather living? Here or Telmo? I did not hesitate, "here!" I exclaimed. Alright then, something better that you will like more is just around the corner. This job was not meant to be and you will probably get an easier kid, better location or what ever it is that will make it a better job than the one you just lost.

I am so fucking pissed right now I could spit. The one on one job fell through!! WTF?! I get a whimpy ass phone call from the office on my voice mail saying my services were no longer needed, they wanted to find another aid for T. Lets see, once the kid got done tantruming (for an hour) with the O.T., I got to have him. The kid was AN ANGEL!!! He did the work I asked of him. The fucking cunt teacher said "yes, we'll keep you until June 9". I had given up my Sundays at work, starting looking forward to at least having 1 weekend day off AND gave up a sub positition for later in the week. Great, just mother fucking great.

I always say, when life gives you lemons. Make lemon drop martinis.
Yeah, I've been drinking a lot of those since my son was diagnosed with Autism 5 years ago. It's also "sink or swim". I've become a pretty good swimmer and a damn good drunk! I spent the day at a seminar for Autism. I stopped going to those things the first year Pudd'n was diagnosed. They could not tell me nothing I did not already know and had nothing new to offer me. So why did I go today after so many years? Dr. Temple Grandin. She is a high functioning autistic woman. She's traveled the world, written books and is in demand for constructing cattle shoots at meat packing plants. She is the first one to give me a glimpse of what my son may be thinking or feeling. My son is non verbal and damn is that challenging. If I ever hear "P.E.C.S." leads to language again, I will fucking scream. But that is another story.
Temple has a sense of humor, she is articulate and a great speaker. She does have sensory issues, but has learned to work with them. She was the first one to show me that my son won't go up to be a vegetable. She gave a list of great jobs for Autistic people to do, the key is to find what they are good at and build upon that. Great, good, but now what the hell is my son good at? Right now, not too much. He is not a "savant" (like most people think all autistic kids are) hell, he can't even tie his shoes. Temple also talked of the horrible teasing she got as a kid. Autistic kids have a hard time telling facial expressions. I hope to Goddess my son does not encounter people like this when he is main streamed. When Temple was finished, she got a standing ovation. She rightly deserved that. I wish all those close minded, snot nosed brats could see her now (maybe they have, she's also been on TV).
Another reason I went was that Temple's mother was also there to speak. It was like she was speaking directly to me. She knew my deep dark fears, she gave me hope. She is a mother that had a severely autistic child in a time where the blame was put on the mothers for the condition (50's -60's). I came away from the seminar with a little glimmer of hope. Some day, if I'm lucky, it will be my son up there showing the world that Autistic kids can do great things. That they are people too, they hurt, they empathize and they LOVE.

A twist on horoscopes.......
I am a Libra.
(Also known as "Scales")
My Horroscope starts like this:
" You have to be a real loser to be born a Libra. Libras are born with two left hands, both of which grow out of their ass. They are tone-deaf and generally have poor eyesight. The senses of self-esteem and humor are in embryotic states at best. " (Read more | Find yours)

I was talking to Spaz tonight and I was telling her about the pidgeon eating that Sam did earlier in the week.
Me: So I walk in and I notice feather's EVERY where.
Spaz: Riiiiiiiight, blame your chicken sacrificing on the dog. Come on, we all know that you killed the pidgeon for a sacrifice!
Me: Dork, that is VooDoo, I practice Wicca.

Goat puppy update:
Sam the Chiva puppy is fine. He has some sort of bacterial thing going on. Probably from eating something, it scraping his intestine and causing infection. Meds should hopefully clear it up in 3 days. His ears are better, the left one still is a bit red. Jack the old fart (literally.....you don't want to be around when he rips them) is fine. They are doing blood & urine work on him because of his advanced age. I got to see Mr. Hottie Vet Tech. Of course because I had no make up on. I did color my hair, so it was a lovely shade of "chocolate cherry". He is more interested in my dogs, which is fine really. It's just nice to have some thing purdy to look at while they ream your visa on vet costs. Samwise goes in for the big "snip snip" in 2 weeks. I'll get him micro chipped too. Well almost time to get my Pudd'n. I can't wait to kiss his sweet face. I miss him so much when he's at school. Soon it will be Easter break and I'll get him all to my self!~

Last night was a blast. Athena brought the most sinful chocolate cake (I'm eating some for breakfast). It was fun to look up our totem animals, I'm going to read my Ted Anderson book for a more in depth description. I was very excited to get the horse & dolphin as some of my totems. Actually, we all got some pretty good ones. I look forward to the medicine wheel we will make at a later date!
I don't know what the hell is up with my knee, S.O.B. is throbbing like an idiot. It started last night after dinner, at first I just thought it was the weather change. But it is still hurting pretty bad today. I'm going to color my hair this morning and then take the dogs in to the vet. Sam is still having bloody stools and Jack's hair has not fully grown back in in a spot that was shaved a few months a go. He should have a full hairy butt by now.
I can't believe how tired I feel this morning too. I could barely stay awake to watch Insomiac last night. I just want to grab pudd'n right now and go curl up back in bed. I'm sure it won't bug him at all to miss school. I wonder if I should put the attempt into looking half way decent in case I see Mr. Hottie Vet Tech.?
Eh, why bother? Every time I do, he's never there.

My magic works. I should of been in a horrible car accident this morning, but by the grace of the Goddess, my "travel talisman" and our guardian angels, we are safe. I was merging out of the car pool lane and some dumb ass cuts in front of me, only to slam on their brakes because the person in front of them suddenly stopped. I swerved back in to the car pool lane, luckily, no one was there.
My good luck continues. I got a call from a local school looking for a teacher's aid. I'll be working one on one with an autistic boy. The only thing that has me worried is "he can be defiant". Oh GREAT. Does that mean I'll get hit, kicked or bit on a regular basis? Any way, I'll keep good thoughts. I'll be working until the summer, this is what I've been wanting. I don't want to work nights any more. I'd rather be home snuggled up to my Pudd'n and smelling his sweet hair as he falls asleep. I'll keep one night at the restaurant. The money is too good to pass up. Well time to finish cleaning the house. The girls will be over tonight and we'll be working on Totem animals. This should be fun, haven't done this yet. Steve may even join us on this one. Right now, life is pretty good.

Between the treadmill, horse back riding and the pilates in a box, I can now feel a slight difference in my clothes. Nothing earth shattering like "holy shit, I need to buy new stuff". It's more like "wow, finally noticing a little difference". I'd like to find a yoga cd especially for the evening. Something for relaxation. I'll check Target today when I drop off my last roll of film. Yesterday when I showed some friend the photo of "Jiggy" I had (he was wearing shorts) they all noticed and said the same thing about his legs "hot damn!". I'll never forget the time when the sports channel did a show on the Red Wings. They showed Shanny in some short. The only thing that kept me from licking the tv screen is that I hate dusting and I'm sure there was about 6 inches of dust on the tube.
I am due for a good drag show. April 21 st cannot get here fast enough. It is so much fun to get your girlfriends together and go for a show. I told Lili she had to bring her brother again. We got served MUCH faster and our drinks were stronger. Hey Paco! Up for a show?! Why not come on out? I'll show you all the bars that I took Aussie to and handed her back to Athena a wee bit "pissed" (That's aussie slang for "blind stinking drunk").
I just also realized that our community garage sale is next month. Why the excitement? I live in a heavily populated Latino area. I LIVE for Mexican food! Everyone cooks HOME MADE stuff and sells it! Tamales wrapped in banana leaves, FRESH salsa! Carnitas! Yeah baby! We just walk around to all the neighboring cul de sacs and graze.
Well time to get off my butt and get my Pudd'n ready for school. Yesterday when I came to pick him up, he and his teacher were playing "chase". I'll give you 3 guess' who got tired first........And we ALL know it wasn't Pudd'n!

GODDAMNED MOTHER FUCKING GOAT PUPPY!!!!
Our neighbor's cat killed a bird in our yard. Samwise took it upon himself to eat what was left of the bird IN MY FUCKING LIVING ROOM!!! I come home to what was left of the bird carcass and feathers EVERYWHERE. Now mind you, I left the dogs with THREE bones to chew upon today. THREE!! The two older dogs wanted nothing to do with them, Sam ate 2 out of the three bones. Plus a plant, my jeans and now this fucking bird. I swear if he was not so good with my son I'd kill him. I'd fucking choke the living shit out of his little goat/puppy ass.

Where the hell do I begin? Last night was incredible! Now mind you, my team did lose, but at least it was a good game. The first 3 goals in the first period had me wondering if this was going to be a boring slaughter. There is no fun in watching that. The Ducks came back to life in the 2nd period and the Pond really came to life!
We got there nice & early so I could snap a few photos. No one was on the ice yet, so I took the time to spike up my drink liberally with some Jameson. Young & Old Steve went walking about to "check things out" (yeah right, who are they kidding? I know what they are "checking out"). I find out which end of the ice my boys will be at and make my way down there. I get right up behind the goal and settle myself in for some photo ops. I then realize I forgot my sign. Oh well, I'm just going to skip going back, I'm NOT giving up my temporary primo seat. Ah yes, my sign...........and Steve's sign.
Mine: "Kiss me Shanny, I'm Irish"
Steve's: "Shanny, take my wife PLEASE"
(the please was also underlined, that part was my nephew's idea)
Then my boys come out and the world is suddenly golden. They've got Manny in the goal crease and the boys are shooting some pucks. Hull is looking cock sure of himself as usual (RRRRRRrooowwwwwwRRRRRRR!), McCarty is looking pretty damn cute too, who cares if he's missing a couple of teeth? Holstrom.......Damn fine piece of realistate. And then the man him self.....SHANNY!!! I cream my pants on the spot, I resist the urge to lift my jersey and press my naked breasts against the glass. I feel a tap on my shoulder, it's Steve! And he's got my sign! What a good husband! Then I notice, he's got his sign too! Bastard! We put them up and I can see the guys chuckling amongst themselves. Hell, who ever was around us was laughing at our signs.
It's time for the national anthem, so we make it back to our seats (behind Ducks goal). A 13 year old local girl was singing our anthem and man did she ROCK! We had a bunch of friends that were behind us, they were divided up between being a Duck or Detroit fan. We instantly became friends and had fun cheering, cursing and giving our teams the arm chair coaching they needed. During 2nd intermission our two rows were trying to get young Steve a shirt the "winglets" were throwing around. Dumb bitches didn't get it any where near us.
The next two periods were an awesome blurr. The Pond was packed and it was LOUD! A section of Detroit fans booed Federov when ever he touched the puck, I did not participate. At first I was out raged he would ever leave such a fine team. But then I realized maybe he wasn't feeling challenged enough. Well he's getting his challenge now! If the man is happy, that is all that matters. If you don't like your job, you play poorly. So, good luck Federov, maybe next year your team will play like they did last night and make it to the play offs again. I enjoy a good game, I want to be entertained and kept on the edge of my seat. I like it when the teams are close in goals, it makes them more hungry to win.
Well time to get off of my ass and get my kid to school.

I have a shit eating grin on my face and I am giggleing like a 12 year old school girl that just found her mom's play girl magazine. What has me in such a state? Hockey players.......NHL Hockey players. We went to the "end of season" party for the kids club. We got there early and went inside the ice rink. What did I see? The Mighty Ducks practicing on ice. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOO baby! Ms. Maeve dumped her husband & child and made a bee line for the rink. There was Sergi Federov, just a few feet from me. Gerber was in the net and I saw Mr. Hottie Keith Carney out there too. I made a bit of stir myself, Gerber kept looking over to where I was standing (up on the stairs to get a better view). I was wearing a black tank top, I guess not too many people wear tank tops in an ice rink. Ok, so it was a tank top with my push up bra and slut red lipstick. Their practice ended and we went out side to the party. There was really not much to do for an autisitc child. It was a bit over whelming. We took a few photos with "wild wing", ate some pizza and just walked around and enjoyed the sunshine. I sudgested we go back in to see what was next for the players. The boys went to go play video games while I went back into the rink. I notice a few people standing back up by the bleachers and they seemed to be waiting for something. Then it dawned on me, THEY WERE BY THE LOCKER ROOM!!!!!!!!!!!!! So, like a good bitch groupie that I am, I went too. I got a great photo of Federov, one of "Jiggy". He was in shorts and that man had some FINE legs. I hear that Carney is still due to come out, so I run in, grab Steve & Pudd'n and bring them back in. Just as we get there, Carney comes out. NOW I really turn into a idiot, I called down over the railing "will you take a photo with my son?". He said sure and I was allowed down to the ice level. Of course Pudd'n wants NOTHING to do with my idea. Keith was a good sport and we got a photo. The usher asks if I want to wait for any of the other players. More? Who? Can I go in and check to see who's left? The girl laughs, what? You don't think I'm serious? Fuck, watch me walk in!!! But then I glance over and notice Steve, ughhhhh, no that's ok. We'll be going now. I know Pudd'n would not of waited for whom ever was next. He didn't give a rat's ass. It's mommy that is a hockey nut case. On our way home we are talking about what a nice afternoon it was. I mention to Steve that we can do the same tomorrow after the hockey game at the Pond. Fans can wait in the parking lot for autographs. I told him that only this time I'd be looking for Detroit's bus. "So you can figure a way to break into it?" says Steve. Hell yeah! I'll offer to be towel girl or massuse! He just rolles his eyes.........fat chance. Hey a girl can dream............

What a wonderful relaxing ride I had on Kip today. I swear that horse is better than sex! I'm looking forward to this weekend, have lots planned. On Sat we will be going to the "end of season" celebration for all the "wild wingers kid's club" held by the Mighty Ducks. Yes, the mighty duck fucks. Steve signed up little steve & anthony as members. So Ms. Maeve is hopeing that some hockey players will be there. Keith Carney is a hottie for sure! RRRRRRRRRRoooooooowwwwwwwRRRRRRRrrrrr!~ On Sunday we will be going to see a REAL hockey team play. The Detroit Red Wings will be playing the Ducks. I have camera & flask ready. I need to make up my sign that says "Kiss me Shanny, I'm Irish". I can dream..........
Picked up some duck food too, we will go to our favorite park to feed the ducks. Well, I'll feed them and Anthony will chase them. Still feeling all warm & fuzzy from having a great St. Patty's. Or is that feeling due to me wearing my new sexay red robe? I never knew I could get so geeked over a bath robe, but damn! This thing is SOFT! Well time to shove some lunch in my face and go clean something.

Ah yes, the morning after............a couple of breakfast Jack's to help ease last night's booze fest. Actually I didn't get THAT hammered, I'm just getting old. It was nice to hang out with everyone. I did miss Lili though, just wasn't the same with out her. My neice has a project for her first grade class. I am suppose to take a photo of her and "do" things while holding the picture of "flat Nikki". I am then suppose to send the photos back to the class and they will talk about where "flat Nikki" went and her adventures. So being the loving aunt that I am, I've got lots planned for "flat Nikki". I thought it would be good to have "Nikki" on the alter when I do ritual. Then Steve said "well why not tape her to the head of the bed and we'll snap a photo of us having sex?". OOOOOOO good idea! Flat Nikki in her first porn!!! I think I will go lay back down now. I'm tired and can't hold a train of thought.

We spent the morning at the park. Pudd'n gleefully chased any and every duck into the many lakes at this park. It was cute to watch him, but I did feel sorry for the ducks. When we got to the play ground a couple pulled up with some kids in the car. I was happy for that, kids for Pudd'n to watch and model from. Then I looked at the little girl, she was standing and waiting by the car. She had her hands held over her ears. Steve and I looked at each other, we knew right away the girl had Autism. When they got her brother out, we noticed he was also Autistic too. Two kids with Autism. Damn, that has to be hard. That is the exact reason why we did not have any more kids.
Later on we went to Omar's Exotic Bird shop. Pudd'n made a bee line straight for a blue & gold Macaw. Only thing was, that bird wanted nothing to do with Pudd'n. Of course Pudd'n does not recognize this and I'm having a hell of a time keeping his little fingers away from that damn big beak on that bird! Turns out the bird wanted nothing to do with kids, just liked adults. So I figure I'll hold the bird and maybe then pudd'n can pet him. Well this damn bird had other ideas in his little brain. It made it's way up my arm (no matter how hard I tried to put him back on his perch). My shoulder was not good enough........nooooooo. He wanted to sit on TOP of my fucking head!!! So he's grabbing on to my hair clip and getting his claws all in my hair. Now would be a good time to streach his wings right? So he starts flapping the damn things, I can't find Steve and pudd'n is off stemming some place or terrorizing some other parrot. I'm trying not to freak out, what if this thing shits in my hair?? I finally get Steve's atendsion to get his ass over to help me. "Well just put him back on the perch" he tells me. No fucking shit! Don't you think I've tried this already? He gets the bird untangled from my hair and tries to put it back..........with no luck. I smirk with statisfaction. "Told you so!". Finally a store employee came over and got the bird back on the perch and we came out of there with all of our fingers intact.

Bangers & Mash any one??
Had an awesome time at the Irish festival today. Poor Venus pulled an all nighter, but she was a trooper and kept up. I picked up some Rum (yeah a bit out of character for me) and filled my flask on the way up. We get there right before they open and what is waiting in line? An Irish Wolfhound. I begin to drool excessively and jump out of the car. Her name was Meggie and she was one fine bitch! Now I love my Samwise puppy, but damn, what I wouldn't give for one of those dogs! She was half the size of my horse Kip! Venus is making fun of me, but who bee lined it for the petting zoo when we got inside? Well twist my arm any way, they had goats. Goats ROCK!!!
We walked around and looked at all the pretty shiny things. The only major disappointment was there were hardly any hot men in Kilts. They were all old men..........No fair. The stew in the bread bowl was awesome. Venus got a cute green hat to wear, she will be quiet dapper for St. Patty's day. I got Pudd'n a button that says "Irish Prince", now hopefully he will wear it.
unfortunately, we only saw Lili on the way out. They got a late start in the day. I had to work tonight, so we had to go early. She had a great time herself. Time to go finish that bottle of rum.............

A shit, I have to take Sam into the vet today. I usually will take the dogs for a car ride when dropping off Pudd'n to school. I pull up and notice that Jack had puked up his breakfast. Great, the damn dog still gets car sick. I get needed supplys to clean it up and then notice that Sam has now puked up. He's been puking non stop ever since. So in to the vet we go. Fuck, shit, piss and damn. Looks like I won't be going in for my last day at the school, I'm too afraid to leave Sam alone until his appointment. fuck.

Today I dropped Pudd'n off at Grandma's house. My mom rocks, she made me 3 different meals (with out being asked) for me to bring home. I have enough time to get a manicure, pedicure and I'm going to go for it and get an upper back/neck massage. I deserve it! So I'm driving home, all nice and relaxed and thinking of all the nasty things I am going to do to my husband. The kind of sex where the whole neighborhood knows your getting some, the kind of sex where a washing machine will be needed and you run out of lube and need new batteries for your toys. Yes........I was going to get it and give it good. I walk through my front gate and I notice a few of my potted plants are missing. I soon found them.......or what was left of them ALL over my living room. Seems Samwise (dear sweet puppy) got bored and thought I needed an indoor garden. Dirt EVERYWHERE, the pots chewed up and the flowers ingested. Then Sam & Jack (my older senile dog) start wrestling around the living room, grinding in the dirt. I scream at them to "get out". I take a deep breath, well Steve will be home soon. I'll just lock the dogs out and we can clean up the living room after we are done. I pour myself a glass of wine and I play the messages on my machine. First one is Steve.
"Hi, I'm going to see the tax lady right after work and then I'm going to Jake's to finish the phone work".
Fuck, shit, piss and DAMN! So much for my afternoon delight. *Heavy sigh* Looks like it's just me and "Bob" this afternoon. ;)

Had a great time at Venus' house tonight. She had a cool spell for us to work. My candle burned out in less than 5 min. I put it out side to burn, don't want the smoke detector going off. The thing looked like a mini blow torch or something. Got to chat with Paco, well sort of chat, I was too busy hacking up a lung in the poor girl's ear! I have an appointment to go to the dr. tomorrow. Only two more days at the middle school. I won't be subbing for some time after that. I need a break! The money is nice, but feeling worn down is not!

Today I had to mind the WHOLE classroom while Mrs. S was in a meeting. A regular teacher was there to supervise, but she had no clue as to what was going on. Now mind you, I'm with A.D.D. kids and they chew up & spit out any sub that walks through the door. Well..........Until yours truly showed up! Working with these kids has been a pic nic compared to the pre school & elementary aged Autistic kids I work with. A few times they tried to test me, I gave them "the look". "The look" has been handed down on my mother's side of the family along with our dark hair & eyes and our ability for holding great quantities of booze. "The look" tells you to "don't fuck with me, I WILL put you through that wall and enjoy it". Plus I've been told I have a really evil smile. Throw that in and screw with their little heads. Sorry kids, you met your match with me. The sub was amazed at how quiet and on task the kids were.
This weekend is the Irish festival. I can't wait, hot men in kilts! Music........FOOD! I am SO there! I wonder if the guy with the life sized wooden rocking horse will be there. Missy & I turned a few heads when we rode that thing together. Picture this if you will............Life sized rocking horse, Missy (petite, skinny, blonde) and me on this horse together. She starts moaning like she is ready to orgasm, she starts calling out my name. "Oh Maeve, yes Maeve, OOOOOOOOhhhhhhhhhh baby yeah...........You get the picture? A group of men got whip lash trying to see us. And there is poor Lili, trying not to pee her pants laughing. Oh wait, she was standing funny not because she had to pee..........C had fucked her silly and she was SORE. Yes, I cannot wait to see what fun awaits for us this year.

Didn't get that nap in yesterday, but we did go down town to walk around a little. We went to the petting zoo where I fed goats (goats are COOL!). I tried to show Pudd'n a guinea pig and the look on his face was hysterical! He looked at me like "get that fucking rat out of my face mother!!". He tried to feed the bun- buns, but the poor things were too hot & tired. The dogs enjoyed the outing, Sam did pretty good. It's my last week at the middle school. I am looking forward to getting my ass back on a horse. Unless I get the teacher's aid job I just applied for. We'll see.

What a nice day. I found a top to go with the awesome skirt my friend Kari got me for Yule. Well, it was a skirt I had in layaway forever and she paid the balance off. I'm going to wear the outfit tonight to the Seance. We loaded up the dogs and Pudd'n and went to the park. I worked on Sam's obedience, he's doing really well. Pudd'n had a great time, he is so damn cute. Tomorrow the dogs get a bath, I got two brushed today. Stupid Jack got a hold of the bag of chili I had thawing in the sink. A HUGE bag of my mom's chili. He's going to be squirting liquid out of his ass for days. Dumb dog.

You would think that after my nap I'd be a bit more chipper, but I am still sluggish. I hope to Goddess that I don't have Broncitis. It kind of feels like when Toezer used to lay on my chest.........heavy, a heavy sensation. Man that cat was fat in her younger day. Sam excelled at puppy class, he did MUCH better than that border collie mix. And what is up with that? The new "mixes" and people charging a shit load of money for them! Border/Aussie , Bullmation, Labadoodle. WTF? Those were known as "mutts" and you got them cheap. Jack & DeeDee got to go with Steve to pick up Pudd'n. Sam does not know what to do with himself with out the other two dogs here. Soon my son will be home and I can't wait to kiss his sweet face and tell him how much mommy missed him today.

I am so fucking tired right now I can't see straight. I'm coughing up a fucking lunge and it feels that my cold is coming back in force. There will be a sub. Teacher in class today, which means my lovely little A.D.D. kids will be acting up more than usual. I am emotionally drained too, a dear friend of mine is involved in a toxic relationship with a man. I need to learn to step back and not get so emotionally involved. It is hard, I love her dearly and hate it when ANY of my friends hurt. That is why I am drawn to witch craft so much. It's all about the healing and getting in touch with your inner Goddess. You are feeling down? Here, try this herb or stone. Want a boost in your love life? Let me look something up, you deserve to be happy. Boss causing stress at your job? Here honey, wear this to deflect it. Feeling depressed? Here is a talisman to carry. Some days (like today) I feel I'm giving too much of myself away. I feel that I am so busy trying to be accommodating to everyone but myself. I just want to crawl back into bed and sleep the entire day away. But I can't, I have a huge list of things to do and it does not get any smaller. The list just keeps on growing. Last year I went to a very powerful meditation at the Chakra Shack. George's words are ringing true in my head right now. "You want to heal the world. You have to take care of yourself before you can do that. Take care of yourself and you will easily heal the world". (or something to that effect........It's been a few months). For me "the world" of course is my son. I am of no use to him when I am this tired and drained. Fuck, I have to get my shit together and get to school. I'm late already.

What an awesome circle we had tonight!! The energy we raised was awesome! We were all paired off into little groups to do some spell work. Each group had a certain spell to cast. Our group had Prosperity. I smirked in satisfaction, I do those ALL the time. Brian had a rhyming chant whipped up in nothing flat, I was very impressed. Other spells cast were knowledge, courage, healing, uncrossing, truth.......Etc. Stuff like that. There were A LOT of new faces. K and I were vying for the attendsion of one new hottie. Every time K had Mr. New hottie alone to himself, I'd find a reason to butt into the conversation. It was so fun. I leaned into K and told him "share your toys". I am so hyped up from the energy raised, I am going to be lucky to get to sleep before midnight. Sir Donald walked me to my car, held my elbow and every thing. Made this old broad feel like a real lady!
Oh yeah, some one brought a can of whipped cream for an angel food cake. Ericka and I got a hold of that can and did all sorts of nasty things with it. Nothing was sacred on that table. We turned every bit of food into something sexual.

Had a nice afternoon rolling around with Pudd'n and blowing raspberries on his tummy & back. We snuggled up and listened to the rain. Well, he watched Thomas the Tank engine and I read my book/listened to the rain. Any one want to buy some "Cookie Lee" jewelry? Pudd'ns class is having a fundraiser, the consultant will donate 20% of all sales to special day classes at pudd'ns school. I found a few dozen things I'd like to get, I'll have to narrow it down to maybe half dozen. My nephew Steve came into my classroom again today to tell me how excited he was that he was going to the Red Wings game with us in 19 days!!! I am thinking of making up a sign that says "Kiss me Shanny! I'm Irish!". I will refrain from pressing my naked breasts against the plexi glass. Only because Little Steve will be there, Big Steve (hubby) is used to the shit I pull.
Estee Lauder is having a "gift with purchase" sale going on, and being the good make up whore that I am, bought stuff. I eye balled the purple mascara, made me think of the blue stuff I wore in high school back in 82-83. EEEEEEEkkkkkkkkkk!

Hear that? Listen close........Real close...........It's my tread mill. It's mocking me again. Daring me to get my lazy ass upon it. I've had the thing for a month now, but I can't see any improvement. Ok, maybe if I cut back on the booze (aaaaahhhhhhh ANY thing but that!). I know I need to re evalutate what I'm cramming in my mouth. My mom's wonderful cooking is not helping. I pig out on the stuff, they don't call it comfort food for nothing! My hips do feel slimmer, but when I put my jeans on, they are still tight as a drum. WTF?
If I get up now and jump on it, I can have some time in before the boys get home. Or I can sit at this computer, drink beer (michelob ultra) and do nothing. OOOOOOOO but I did get a new spell book today! That is exciting. 150 spells, all with pretty pictures. Finally got to use the gift certificate my siblings got me for Yule.
