I am posting from my iphone. Cool :)

Moving on... I had a bad day at work today. Being memorial day weekend it's one of the busiest of the year. Which is ok. That is, if your staff showed up on time. So my day didn't start out as planned due to this.

And I don't understand why people feel like they can be dowright mean to sales associates. I got yelled at for something a customer misunderstood. She thought we refused to ring her daughter up when in fact the daughter wasn't ready. She insisted we were wrong. Ugh whatever. And little teenage rich girls just love treating us like we are beneath them.

On the up side on the way home from work I daydreamed about taking my someday kid to the zoo and a picnic in the park thanks to a radio show I listened to called Greasy Kid Stuff (google it!). It was kid songs that were all punk and alternative. My favorite was "who put the duh in dinosaur, must have been the dumb brontosaurus". I think it was by Snow Patrol but I'm not sure. I just happened on the show because my radio dial was on 94.7 Alternative Portland. I love that station. I think you can stream it if interested.

Also my tattoo is looking good, almost healed :) for those of you who have a tattoo know that it goes through a gross ugly stage which I won't get into. It's looking prettier now.

I also have my ivf class on tuesday yay!!! I am excited but my husband is in for a nice shock I think. Especially when it comes to him injecting the meds for me.

Oh and to those who have asked, I will post pics of the new finger puppets when I finish :)

Finger puppets! Yay. I love puppets. (OK, now I'll be more serious.) I enjoyed reading about your daydream for taking a child to the zoo. A sweet dream. Best of luck on the IVF.

Yay for the IVF class. I avoid the stores like the plague on holidays. I'm one of those people that makes sure I'm done xmas shopping by the first week of November.

Those sweet daydreams will come true in the very near future. I just know it! Sending lots of BFP vibes your way. Hang in there!

Oh, Lucky, I don't know why people have to be rude. There are people with chips on their shoulders and a sense of entitlement. I don't know what to do about them. I find myself acting passive aggressively toward them. The customer is NOT always right.

It's nice to plan and think about the things we want to do with our future children, isn't it? I do it too... the places we'll go, the things we'll do. It's exciting.

I'm SO looking forward to seeing the new puppets!

People suck. Sorry you had to bear the brunt of other folks' bad behavior.

That kids show sounds pretty rad. I'll have to add it to my list of cool thing to indoctrinate future child with.

just me, dawn said...

Good luck to your husband at the IVF class. :) I daydreamed about taking my someday child to the zoo too this weekend. Then said F-it, and brought my husband to the zoo instead. It was fun, even sans children. I hope now that Memorial Day is over, the rest of your week at work goes by much better than today.

That radio station sounds awesome! I'm going to have to check it out.

What did you get a tattoo of? I have two largish ones and want another.


Kristin said... I officially feel stoopid because I commented before I realized I looked at your tat during show and tell.

Sonja said...

I work retail. We didn't have too many rude/mean people this weekend, but holy Toledo, it seemed like no one could read signs; yes, buy one get one free means just that!

You survived tho :-)

Love your tattoo, it's beautiful!!
