ren festing and whatnot

 Soo... went to the Ren fest for the soul purpose of teasing the other derby coach who was there - in a kilt (bonus! guys in skirts!) and was singing. We had a long (long.. long) derby board meeting this morning where TJ mentioned he had to go because he was expected to go sing at the fair and we were all like WHAT?! SING??! then we wouldn't let him leave until he did it. He did.. but it was suddenly when we were not expecting it and nobody had a video ready :(
  ... My daughter (the oldest) gave him a dollar when we got to the fair so he would sing again and he did - but we made him do it again - for free - because he sang a repeat of the one from this morning. It was cute - she blushed.
  It was a pretty good time, the people were really excited because the group of us (kids included) were all wearing our Grand Junction Roller Girls shirts (so we stuck out.. a lot haha!) and since our group is pretty new, the people are excited to hear about us, and see us in the community.
Oh Drama.. why do you love me so? I think we should see other people.

make it up! you're good at that...

 So tomorrow I'm being filmed for www.ahamoment.com  who recently contacted me regarding starting the Grand Junction Roller Girls roller derby league and how it has since changed my life.
  I have no freaking clue what to say.
Honestly I LOVE LOVE LOVE roller derby but starting it here was a total fluke. I wanted it, I was sick and had nothing better to do besides sit in bed so I was like "fuck it! lets start a face book page and see if anyone ELSE is interested around here" then it was like BAM! instant derby league, just add drama. LOADS AND LOADS of drama that frequently make me ask myself what the hell I was thinking.

*clearly* I cannot say *that* so I have to pull something amazing and thought provoking out of my ass...
  Went to the college book store today to get my books. They didn't have them all yet, and they didn't have the correct versions of some of the ones they *did* have. I had Jenna and Jules with me also. Jules was great, he carried around my books for me and helped me find them but Jenna wandered around the store asking for stuff. She didn't get anything and that pissed her off but she got over it. THEN the check out lady did not know how to process my order right since Voc Rehab is paying for it and when she said "your account is empty" I nearly threw up on the register. I don't handle stress well these days. I usually handle it by vomiting which on one hand could be considered a good method of weight loss - isn't consistent enough to be all that effective.
 
  Once I got home I found that Jason had gotten off work several hours early - but only because he had to turn right around and go back out and may not be home again until Sunday morning.. this means it'll be left to ME to be the coach for Derby practice tonight and tomorrow night which I'm not very good at because I'm totally impatient. I usually coach a *segment* or two of practice but never the whole thing... I'm actually praying for rain. I hear a teeny bit of thunder! .. I think.
 
     Let's see... oh! adding to my list of reasons I need a time out is that Jason's Great Aunt wants me to sell her car on Ebay. .... for $40,000.00
Keep in mind I don't know how to sell a flashlight on ebay let alone a damn car! I've never even BOUGHT anything off of there before!  Did I mention she wants it done in a week? A WEEK! As if I have nothing else in my life going on.. I have to drop everything and get her car sold, and do it NOW. (this car, btw, is a 1958 Chrysler Imperial Convertible) ..

FML.

  So I guess I should get the ball rolling with my first post or whatever. I'm about to start college (real college, not online school like I've done before 2 times already) in about ..............................  18.5 days. Damn. That's just a little over 2 weeks! I'm freaking out a little over it. .. and a little more every day. I'm hoping that once I actually start and get used to my new schedule I'll be ok. I'm just so used to being HOME all the time, cleaning and whatever, having the freedom to schedule all my appointments during the day while my younger two are in school. But MY classes are arranged around *their* class schedule so that I can still always be home when they are, unless one of them gets sick - in which case I'm fucked. See? here I go getting myself all worked up again. gotta stop.

  ... So.. I'm going to to pick up my books for this semester tomorrow. I'm a little excited but kinda not too.  There are a TON of books for just 5 classes. I mean, WHY do I need 4 books for an anthropology class?
My spanish book.. Over $200 bucks?! seriously? Thank God Voc Rehab is paying for it because otherwise there is no way I could do this. When I found out books come out of pocket then you reimburse yourself from whats left of your student loans (if there is anything) I had a mini mental breakdown and cried my eyes out for like an hour... because there is no way I can afford these books out of pocket. Spending money kinda makes me want to vomit. I hate to spend money - especially when we *need* it for bills and things. When we bought my Derby skates... I threw up. I wanted them, I needed them.. but it still made me throw up and that's even WITH the discount that I got from the store.
