Im a witch!

Anyone ever read the Dresden files?

You know how the main character makes electronics go nuts and sometimes his car refuses to work?

Im convinced that I must be magic and my magical whatever is making my car hate me!

Every now and then my car just refuses to work. When you go to turn it on it sounds like its not getting enough gas and cuts off. It doesnt do it all the time. Sometimes I can go a week with no problems and other times it happens for days on end. It doesnt matter how full or empty my gas tank is. I tried putting in that engine cleaner. Nothing works. The worst thing is I took weeks before anyone believed I had this problem. It would act up, I would tell Maor my car didnt start, he would come out and try it and started.

So I got fed up on Friday and took my car over to a place close to where I work. They checked it over and called me up to let me know....they didnt see a problem.
Apparently it started just fine for them! They checked the computer and 3 things were going off that had nothing to do with the car starting....or anything else. 
Their only answer was to reset my computer and let me drive it around some more. They told me to bring it back in after its acted up at least twice. They will check the computer again and see whats going off the second time around then go from there.

Good week

This week was a very good week.
My boss made the mistake of challenging me and another coworker to collect bad debts from customers. For 20 people we collected on that are 60-90 days overdue he would give us a $50 gift card to anywhere we wanted...except Victoria Secret, because that probably wouldnt go over well with accounting or HR. The catch was we had to get the 20 people in a week.

He must have missed the shit eating grin on my face because he smugly added that for every bad debt we got that was 90+ overdue he would add $5 and that he will do for the rest of the month.

I had my 20 in two days. I stopped trying after 4 days because it gets boring calling bad debts and to be honest, my boss currently owes me more in gift cards than I believe the company is going to allow him to comp. 
My coworker also got her 20 but it took her till the last day.

This weekend my mom, little sister, and little brother came to visit. They were only here Fri and Saturday. I didnt get to hang out with them much Friday because I was working but Saturday we went to the opening day of the Renn Fair. 
It was a lot of fun. The jousting and shows arent that great at this Renn Fair compared to others but I love the demos the vendors do. Lea enjoyed herself so much that she slept through most of the day. She just couldnt contain her excitement.
Im actually pretty surprised she wasnt awake more. She doesnt sleep much during the day anymore. Shes getting so big.

...I havent posted a picture of her in a while...I should fix that

Also, thanks to everyone who has taken part in donating to my "Treating myself" fund.
I still dont know what to do. I think Im going to keep going with it until people just stop showing an interest and go on a shopping spree. I did buy myself a HUGE lemon blueberry cupcake. It was awesome! I wanted to take a picture of myself eating it but I was at the office...and they dont need to think Im any crazier.
I might have to get another one this week.

Treating myself

I do work full time but my paycheck goes exclusively towards bills. Because every week my paycheck goes towards daycare (which is about 80% of my paycheck), household bills, and groceries I dont have anything left over to spend on myself. I could ask Mo for money to go get a latte or get myself a massage but that just feels weird. I dont even like asking him for money to go pick up formula. I have no idea why.

So to generate some fun money for myself so I can grab a fancy coffee or maybe splurge and get a massage I'll be doing pictures for fun money. For a $5 donation I'll send you 1 picture of your name (written on a post it note) on my arm, leg, face, ect... you get to choose but no nudity. For a $20 or more I'll do the same thing except you can have nudity.


Thats a cropped example...

If you want to take advantage of this please donate to my chipin then email me at with your request. Please give me at least 24 hours to fulfill your request...seeing as I work full time and have a 4 month old.
