Six Word Saturday

Baby Showers are Raining Down Today

I've gotta go to my Step-Brothers (well his girlfriends) baby shower this evening. Why you ask is it being held at night instead of the 'normal' morning/mid-day shower? It's being held this evening because pretty much it's more of a party than a shower lol. They are roasting a pig and having a keg! So I'm guessing it's gonna either be a great time or a big PITA lol. While I'm hanging with the drunks Mena (in case anyone is still reading an cares we changed Nannas name because Zilla refuses to call her anything but Mena) is taking Zilla to a birthday party where they are gonna have a huge waterslide! I'm thinking the little monkey is gonna have more fun than me!

Family Trip

Yesterday Zilla and I along with Mena and my Aunt started our fun journey up to Atlanta, GA for a family reunion of sorts. I had to wake up at 5:30am and once we finally left and started out for the almost 8 hour trip I was in much need of coffee. After we stopped off at Dunkin Donuts, cause everyone runs on Dunkin, we played a word game while Zilla watched a movie and played his leapster. I just have to say that my family is just crazy because the words we were coming up with were just nuts. We finally made it up here in the evening and got settled in. I managed to get some school work done since this is my finals week. Today we went around to some yard sales and goodwill where I found an almost brand new Thomas the Train lamp for only $3.50!!!!! Zilla occupied himself for half of the day with Thomas videos on uTube that were linked from his favorite website - he can even tell you the name of the site! We had a good time this morning and I'll post again tomorrow with more adventures from the greater Atlanta area. Nighty Night Night!

New Layout for my New Mood

I liked my previous blog layout made by The Cutest Blog on the Block but they said something about it expiring this week so I needed to go search for a new free blog layout and I found Dotty Dot Dot. She's got lots of pretty blog layouts but I wasn't really interested in a "pretty" one I needed something a little darker for my darker mood lately. This whole divorce thing is really kicking my butt. Don't get me wrong I have ZERO ideas of "fixing" my marriage because it's totally over and I'm more than cool with that but just the whole divorce thing sucks. Divorce means lots of headaches and money spent that I'd just rather not deal with. I finally found myself a lawyer I think I'll like - I'm meeting her on Monday lets hope we mesh and she won't be charging me my next born child - or well maybe that would be good since I probably won't be having any more LOL. It's just really a PITA but not much I can do about it since my soon to be ex has found "the one" and would like to get rid of "not the one" aka me haha. Wow this is coming out like I'm bitter but I'm not I swear I'm just not looking forward to all the things I didn't want for myself aka being a single mom and the majority parent (baby daddy is military so thats the nature of the beast). I just never wanted that (I know, I know who does but still) for myself or my BabyZilla. It doesn't help my mood that finding a job in this economy SUCKS. Here's hoping the second half of 2010 is better than the first.

Classes and Update on the Crazies

First the update on my call regarding the crazy pavilion stealing lady: I called and was first told that "they don't really offer refunds unless it rains out" , "well we can give you a pavilion for another day if you want" and "well you did have your party" as well as "the people you talked to didn't have the authority to offer you a refund"- I didn't think I could get any more ticked off about the situation but I was wrong. After explaining that I didn't get what I paid for she finally said that I "should" get a refund but it will more than likely take two weeks or more! Yeah I'm calling again on Friday and then next week I'll be going down for my refund in cash and they better be super apologetic. Oh and the lady also said that through all of that ordeal on Saturday apparently no one got the crazy lady's name so they don't know who she even is!!! So if your in the Central Florida area - DO NOT deal with Sanford Parks and Recreation because they are MORONS!!!!!!

Okay on to other crap before I get my blood boiling again. I'm almost done with my degree (again lol) only two more classes and then I'll be the super proud owner of two shiny boring business degrees!!! I'm currently taking two super exciting *I don't know if you can read the sarcasm in that but it's there* accounting classes and I found out that my last two don't have to be accounting or business related so I'm flying high on that news!! More than likely one will be boring accounting but I'm looking for something else that actually interests me and instead I'm finding that there are A LOT of odd classes offered that I wouldn't ever think about like: Strategies for Success in College (um it's called do the work and pay tuition!), Chemistry (how do you take science classes like that online?), Organized Crime (does it teach how to spot them or how to start them?), and E-Marketing (I guess it makes sense but I just never thought a whole class would be dedicated to it). I also never realized how many History and Religion classes their were. I have narrowed it down to a few: Fund and Government Accounting (I know its gonna be boring but I wanna work for the Govt so it will be ok), Personal Financial Planning (I'm not sure if I've actually already taken this though so I'll have to check that) and Digital Imaging (I would have to buy photoshop for it though and thats crazy expensive so we'll see. Everything else just seemed boring or I would need pre-reqs that I don't have. I'll need to decide soon though so I can order my book in time for the class to start. I can't wait to be done with school  because my brain is done with being a student! Ok thats ok for tonight peeps. Deuces

Crazy Ghetto Pavilion Stealing People

Yesterday was the day that we celebrated Zilla's 4th Birthday by having a great party at the park/splash pad. Or well at least that was the plan. I decided in June that Zilla would totally dig having his party at the splash pad (which he did) so I called and rented (and paid for) a pavilion then told everyone and started planning this super awesome day - that never actually happened because the Universe apparently decided to mess with me this week. I'll start at the beginning - Friday I was gonna make the cake and cupcakes but that ended up being a mess in which I will never work with Fondant again and I'm not 100% sure I'll make any more cakes ever again. I went to bed kinda hoping that it would rain and the party would be cancelled - it was just a crappy day that apparently decided to continue on to Sat. So Saturday I left at 12pm (the party was for 2) to go get my 10 balloons blown up an hour later - yep Party City was just hopping - we got some Chick-Fil-A and went to pick up the cake and head over to the park. I got to the park a few minutes early and found people in my pavilion so I informed them very politely that I had rented it, thinking that they just made a mistake cause it happens, but I didn't get a polite response back. The lady at MY pavilion rudely told me "No this is my pavilion and I'm not moving" - so I'm standing there with Zilla and a ton of balloons with some hijacker in my pavilion I was really ticked off cause she was being a bitch to me and I was already in a bad mood. The park people got involved telling her I was on the paper and she told them "You double booked it because I paid for it two weeks ago so that's your problem not mine" - that was her anthem. They eventually (at about 2:40)  told her they had no paper work on her so then she offered me two of the tables - how nice right since I rented the whole thing! The park guy was really trying to get it all figured out for us but this lady was just crazy because she kept insisting that she had rented it and wasn't going to ruin her son's birthday party – apparently MY son's party meant nothing. They moved us to a pavilion that opened up and we got everything unloaded and set up even though by this point the whole party atmosphere was completely ruined because it wasn't just me that was ticked off it was my whole family – the only one that didn't have a clue was Zilla! She actually had the nerve to say “Oh so you were supposed to be somewhere else” when they moved us! I wanted to punch her in her stupid face but I didn't cause there were kids present. The City Parks Superintendent showed up and apparently decided that it would just be better to let the lady have her way than calling the cops (cause trust me she wasn't gonna leave on her own). The pavilion that they moved us to had people coming at 4pm (my party was booked until 5pm) so when they got there at 4:30 we packed up and all the while the whore who stole my damn pavilion continued on with her party. It turns out she rented the pavilion but for another day NOT the 17th and just 'made a mistake' – did I get an apology from her? Hell no I didn't the only person that apologized was the Parks Manager! I will be getting a refund but in my opinion that's the least they should have done for me considering my party ended up going from 3 hours to barely over one. I know it's not the parks fault some crazy bitch came that day and Zilla had a great time and I know that's whats important but she still ruined my guests and my day. I know that mistakes happen and I probably would have been semi understanding if she hadn't been a total and utter bitch the whole time.
That was the condensed tale (trust me there was more) of the crazy ass lady that managed to jack up my babies birthday party! I'll post pictures when I get them loaded.
