“Ketchup” Post.

KetchupPost(newest) Catching up on what’s happening:

– My hubby was making fun of my TV shows I watch again when HE watches stupid redneck stuff like hockey and wrestling( the LOWEST form of “entertainment”) and those late-night talk shows like “The Daily Show” and “The Colbert Report”( that makes fun of American congressmen and senators that we’ve never even heard of  in this country so how can he even “get” the jokes when he doesn’t even know who they’re talking about?)so what can HE say about MY shows? My family always makes fun of EVERYTHING that *I* watch, say, do, or like and I’m tired of it.

– One of the 14 YR old’s friends came over and she thought our house was “weird” because we have 3 floors plus the basement and that my hubby has an office in the basement.

– For over 2 weeks straight my bad headaches and high BP are back again but we can’t reach my doc so just keep leaving messages on her answering machine…

-It’s back to cool again( 12 C like fall) but for 4 days in a row it was ungodly hot ( with the humidex it felt like 36 C) and I was tired of it already but we can’t afford to run the central air. It was 85 F in the house and we had to go outside to cool down!

– My hubby always likes to make disparaging remarks about Europe( even though he’s never actually been there himself) just because he knows that I love it and he likes to hurt me.

– I had a dream I moved back to my old Toronto house and I said,”There should be a Chihuahua here!”

– Our oldest is moving out to Calgary to find work(Go West, young man!) and it’s hard to believe that he lived in Montreal for 5 YRS( for university) and in Toronto every summer for summer jobs. It’s a 5 HR flight.

– The 15 YR old jeered that we’re “a redneck family” and I told him,”Speak for yourself! Only half redneck; from Papa’s side of the family!!”

– My mother thinks that saying her prayers for a mere 10 minutes a day(but not bothering to go to church,not caring about God otherwise,mocking my religious upbringing of the kids, being selfish and mean and making my life a living hell and ruining me emotionally) is “enough” to go to Heaven and I told her it takes alot more than that!

– My brain “fog” and forgetfulness is much better now I stopped drinking my smoothies… maybe my mother really WAS poisoning me,afterall?

– The 17 YR old passed her final driving exam and got her license so now she’s an official licensed driver.

– The 6 YR old hit the 14 YR old and yelled at her,”DIE!” He really IS disturbed.

– My hubby was playing laser tag in a town with a group on a military base when the military police came over and told him that flying the Jolly Roger(pirate flag) was illegal( they were playing Capture The Flag) and ordered him to take it down or face arrest! At first when he told me I thought it was a joke! ONLY in Canada! This country is soooo retarded! Canada sucks!

– I overheard one of the kids say to another,”Why is everyone so selfish?” and another replied,”Because we’re Mama’s children!” They say cruel barbs like this about me all the time(and always blame me for everything) and it really hurts. Then they wonder why I wish I never had kids, feel like an outsider in my own family, don’t want to be around my own kids,and want to leave home.

– The kids were insulting me again and when I got mad the 18 YR old said I “act like a child” and that I “initiate it”(blaming me for being bullied) and my mother jeered that I “can’t take a ‘joke’!” and I told them that I’m sick and tired of everyone always ganging up on me and picking on me all the time; of always being the butt of everyone’s “jokes”, that it’s NOT funny, that I’m NOT laughing,and one day when I finally succeed in killing myself because their cruelty has pushed me over the edge it won’t be so “funny” anymore!

– Our oldest said he always feel so tired, run-down,life-less, and has no energy when he’s here and it’s this going nowhere godforsaken hick-ass “Bumble-F*ck” town; it sucks the life and soul out of you until you either slowly die or end up drinking or drugging yourself to death to try to escape your miserable existance.
