"I don't know, maybe it's a girl thing, but after we did it and he gave me the steak coupon I just felt good about myself."- Meredith, The Office

I just love this episode of The Office.

I made a big girl purchase yesterday and bought a living room set. It will be my first time as an adult not owning a sofa that came from a yard sale or friends getting rid of furniture. I am also looking at buying a house. It took me 5 years to buy a new sofa, so I don't think it will be a quick purchase. To be honest, excited and like I want to throw-up whenever I look at the current listing of for-sale homes in my area. I guess I'll know the house is right when excitement beats vomit.

I am so glad tomorrow is Friday. And I am glad that I don't have to whore myself out for steak coupons and product discounts.

Like I needed another reason to become a functional alcoholic

This has not been my best week. Mostly because I feel overwhelmed with my mom; trying to take care of her and still be sane. I have had two mini breakdowns in which I called friends panicky that these years might be the highlight of my life. So far I have two people on guard to monitor my downward spiral into despair (some mothers give pearls, the women in my family should give badges for bitterness). I know one day i will become a full-fledged Bitter-Betty Scout, but right now I hope I am still a junior bitter brownie. Maybe I should make a sash to hold all my badges.

To try and find some hope, I looked at my Chinese Horoscope for 2009. According to the website, the year of the Ox will only be 32% positive for me. I will have 8 (count 'em 8) bad months. It says my work will feel stagnant and trying to find a significant other will be mission impossible. Oh and I should not think about myself so much and take care of my family and friends more. I clicked off the site, took another drink of vodka and went back to watching the Hallmark Hall of Fame Movie. Here's hoping January is going to count as a bad month.

Oh Happy Day!

Happy Inauguration Day!! I am so excited for President Obama, and yet I am sad that I had to work today and I missed all the inaguration stuff. Here's hoping the next 4 years suck a little less than the previous 8.

Sorry I haven't posted in a while. I got sick before Thanksgiving and it has only been in the last week that I have felt better.

Here's to Obama and strong antibiotics.
