The States & Lem

Well...I have two countdowns going on in my head..

1 countdown is for "D" day....

the other one is for :

Orlando....

I'll talk about the latter...

Couple weeks back...me and my mom got into a really bad fight...

I love my mom. She is a good person, most of the time.
But lately, she's been in menopause and is driving everyone up a wall.
The fight, as usual, was about Miss C.

It seems that nothing I do for her is right and she always has to put her two cents into stuff when she is not asked to give em'.

Case is: She did not want to take care of Miss C after school anymore.

Cuz she didn't have 'time for herself' anymore...

Bare in mind: She volunteered to do this..and I was paying her.

Miss C is the only grandchild on my parents side. One would think there would be more 'love', blah blah blah...but in my house..

No f*cking way...
Miss C and I are welcomed for a limited time only...

So she tells me this on a Friday, a very bad one too, and I had to scramble and find a plan B.

This is not the first time she has offered to do something and has not come through, so naturally I was upset.

So I told her:
"I can't take this anymore..blah blah blah (insert rambling on how my life is difficult...blahblah)"

and she's like "ur so dramatic...i have done so many things for u and ur child"
UR CHILD!!!!!

IT'S UR GRANDAUGHTER LADY!!
( i swear if she wasnt my mom..i'd wack her soprano style)..

anyway.so we get into this heated argument...and i tell her i am not 10 years old, and that i am a good mom dammit..and that i am sick of my authority being taken away...that i am sick of having 0 support in that house..blah blah..and she's like: "dont take that tone on me, u ungrateful...blah blah"

So how do u come back from that:

"Well....u need hormones...u are menopausic..and driving everyone in this house mad...ask dad!!"

and I take my "child" and leave upstairs..adding that I was moving away to the states...

She's like : do whatever u want...

FINE!!!

anywhoot after that incident...my dad comes upstairs and tells me that, he knows I am right, but that I should still apologize...

WTF???

Now, ur probably reading this and thinking...u poor thing...I am so sorry this has happened to u..but u know what?..like my fellow blogger Aimée says: There is always someone further down the line...so I ain't sweatin' the little stuff...

What doesn't kill me..makes me one hell of a mom...

So after this incident..and no kind of consideration at all..I have decided to look for opportunities elsewhere...

I am going to Florida to visit some schools, check out some apartments..blah blah...

Now, I kid u not..Florida is not my dream destination...*hint hint* last year's hurricane season...
but...alas, I have relatives there...and my ex will be moving also, and has agreed to help...so there..

I am psyched about the schools, cuz everyone has been so friendly and helpfull...just like here..where u gotta wake up at 3 am to get to the Board of Education's offices at 4 am to get a number...only to realize that when it is finally ur turn...no one knows what the hell is ur issue and how to resolve it efficiently....

on the phone with these Florida peeps it's like:

"Hey Ms. ...how are u...I got ur email!! (yes...via email)...We so looking forward to ur visit...can u bring ur daughter?? Of course!!! blah blah.."

I felt like so estatic!!
so I'll post about that soon enough..but I will sure post of the horrors of traveling with toddlers and making suitcases...which is extremely difficult for someone like moi...

In other non-related issues...
**SPOILER ALERT**
For those who have missed out on tv lately...that's u Mr. Vazquez..the following contains a recap of my favorite program...

Lem might die!!!!!!!

so, u ask: who the f*ck is lem?

Curtis Lemanski...my secret crush on The Shield...after Vic Mackey, of course...
Yesterday was the episode before the great season finale next week...
Recap:
IAD is breathing down Lem's neck...(he stole some heroin to blackmail someone and forgot to return it, IAD found it in his glove compartment)...
Lem is gonna go to Jail...and Anwton Mitchell, this ass from the previous seasons, who is in jail..has threatened to kill Lem...

So what does Vic Mackey, leader of The Strike Team and Lem's buddy do...
He sleeps with the IAD's ex wife, who is mentally ill by the way...and then tells the IAD investigator right to his face, in very pretty words men use...

What does this fellow do?
which by the way is Forest Whitaker...
He goes and sleeps with Vic's ex wife...who by the way, in the series has two autistic children..(that story line develops in season 1 & 2)..

Meanwhile all the other cops are busy trying to catch a guy who puts rat traps in these 'glory holes' in rest rooms, where men stick their weiners for joy...and get their glory's smashed...

So back to Lem..he is the most loyal one on that team..and decides to plead guilty to his drug case, but u see, IAD doesn't want Lem...he wants Mackey for corruption...Lem decides to take one for the team..but Vic decides to take him to Mexico...
As the episode ended, they hugged goodbye...and "Killer in Me" by Smashing Pumpkins played in the background...


tsk tsk tsk..this is the only series i religiously watch...and by religiously i mean..i put Miss C and myself to bed at 9pm..set my alarm clock for 10:55pm and wake up to go watch it at 11pm..and go to bed at 12am...evey tuesday..non-stop...

damn u Vic Mackey!!!
************
