I have some friends who do throwback Thursday or something on Fridays, etc. And today, I got a very random thought bubble and decided to look up the archives of my old, OLD Diaryland account. Oh what? YOU used to do Diaryland? If you DID, please stand up and be noted. Hi Reva, Hi Joyce. Anyone else? Never heard of it? Well, it was my first try at "blogging" though it really was more diary like at times, and somewhat more private. Anyway, it goes from 2002 to 2006, and reading some of it makes me sad, others were funny. AND, it covers some rather important events in my life, such as gastric AND announcing my pregnancy with Maggie.
ANYWAY....randomly reading entries (sidenote: some of my titles were way funnier than actual entries) and decided this was an easy way to 1) get an entry and 2) share some interesting bits of my "former" life.
So, read on friends, this one is short and sweet. I KNOW RIGHT? Who WAS I?

<- That DID happen! ->
You see that? Do you? Huh? Are you thoroughly grossed out yet? No? Well, let me tell you a little story.
It's Tuesday morning, 2 a.m. I'm SOUNDLY sleeping when suddenly, I wake up, freaking out. I don't know why, I have no idea. All I know is, something is wrong. My ear is hurting, something is WRONG. I start thrashing about, and screaming. Jer wakes up scared to death. I'm yelling something is wrong, shaking my head around. It feels like water is gushing out of my ear or something, but no it's not. Then I realize, there is a BUG inside my ear. I can hear it on my eardrum. I freak out even harder. I shake and pound my head harder, and yell some more. Then, I FEEL it come out of my ear. I scream "It WAS A BUG, IT WAS A BUG IN MY EAR." Jer turns on the light, and sure enough, there was that hideous bug crawling on the covers. I jumped up, got a papertowell, picked it up, squished it to death and threw it away. Then, I went to the bathroom where I was so freaked out I could barely function. I found some cotton and put a piece firmly in each ear. Ain't NO WAY some nasty ass will EVER take up residence in MY ear again. Holy SHIT! It was sick and horrible. Anyone else ever experience that? Let me know.
So, there's my "excitement."
This whole week I've been watching my sisters kids while she's been doing the back to school getting ready stuff. I'll be watching her little girl (I'm talking about Brooklyn here, who is now 4 practically 16. So strange to go back in time BEFORE Brooklyn) for the whole school year. Oh, what's taht you say? You thought I was teaching school? Yeah, so that was my big news. I QUIT!!!(Did you know I taught school? Yeah well, I wasn't so great at it) I will NOT be returning to the evil spawn of satan school. I will NOT be teaching. I'm so happy. It was the BIGGEST relief in the world to give them my resignation letter. They're dumbasses and wholly evil and corrupt! May they rot in a fiery hell forever! I'm FREE!!!
Well, must run!!
There ya have it. Consider yourself "Thrown back". Now the girls and I are off to make some cookies and then perhaps I'll think about dinner. I'm cool like that.
