I'm Not One To Complain........

I'm not one to complain....but, I waited till the last minute to finish my online class work. While I was working I felt my allergies starting to bother me. I took some of my allergy medicine. Now I am all jacked up at ten thirty at night. Which means I will not be able to get to sleep tonight. Not that I am one to complain. I got a card with some money in it from a family member for my graduation. I decided that the money is all for me. Me, me, me. I tucked it away in separate compartment in my wallet. I WAS going to put the money in my TV fund.

I have decided that I want to upgrade my TV. Which I will be paying cash for. So, I must save up the money. Sissy went off with one of her friend's this weekend. She didn't drive her car. That's fine. She calls me on her way home and asks me if I have any money. Now.....I just put gas in her car, and gave her some cash. The only cash I have on me is of course, the money I got in my card. She needs to give her ride some gas money. I was livid. Not because I mind to give money to my children. Because they usually end up getting my money anyway.....not that I am one to complain. I especially decided that this money was all for me.

I can't send her friend away with no gas money as Sissy stated that said friend was on empty. Plus, they did give her a ride home. Why didn't she just take her own car. WHICH HAS GAS IN IT. I gave her gas money on Friday. I have decided that it will be up to me to keep gas in her car until she gets a job. At which point I will hopefully be relieving myself of the title of "Gas Fairy". Not to mention that she called while I was in the middle of finishing a paper that is due tomorrow.

Which brings me to point out that my phone rang no less than four times while I was trying to finish the aforementioned paper. No ever calls me. My phone never rings. Unless I am in the middle of a paper that is due in less than 24 hours. Not that I am one to complain.

Now...The DQ decided that the best time to talk to me is of course, while I am trying to finish my paper. So, not only am I dealing with my phone blowing up, but also with a nine year old who wants my attention. I think she eventually picked up on my frustration, and left me alone. She actually tried to give me a back rub while I was typing. Which was really sweet. Hard to believe this is the same child who complained that her burger from Wendy's was too small last night.
Guess I need to write a strongly worded letter to the corporate executives at Wendy's who decided to make the Jr. cheeseburger so small, as I am sure this is somehow my fault. Not that I am one to complain about my children either. No sir.

The paper I am writing is an argumentative paper. Which means I must argue a point. During my research, I found evidence which goes against my argument. What should I do? At this point I can't very well change the topic of my paper. I am hoping that I will be graded on the paper itself and not so much the argument. Of course I had to leave out the opposing information from my paper. I DID NOT lie. I just used different facts and statistics. Had I done my research a little sooner, I would have had a chance to make the necessary changes. As everyone knows, I work better under pressure. It is so much easier to stay focused when you KNOW something has to be completed in a short amount of time. Had I started my paper earlier, I know I would have found many distractions to sway my attention from the project at hand.

I have been trying ALL day to post pictures from the blizzard, with no luck. Which I will not complain about. Yep, that's me. Just an easy going chick......that's how I roll.

Ok, I just have to say it:
Define blizzard down there in your neck of the woods.
