OK, I don't know what happened, but somehow I posted the same entry twice....

I guess I had a blonde moment.

I'm entitled since I'm a blonde....

It's coming soon!!!

Less than 2 weeks to the release of 'Awake Live.' I cannot wait!!! I can't wait to see it again. To relive that concert again! GAH!!! It's gonna be awesome!!!!!

On Tuesday night, I was texting Joivana, and I told her that in less than 2 weeks she's going to be a star. And when she is, I want her autograph. hahaha.

They better have kept her hug from Josh in there. Or I'm going to have to have some words with Mr. Groban. hehehe

Like he'd listen to me anyway.

OK an update on the BIL from hell. I sent that 'apology' that I really didn't want to send, and I was only trying to make things right.

Well, I don't know about anyone else, but a 'normal' (or what I would consider 'normal' I guess) person would graciously apologize for their part in the misunderstanding also when they receive an apology from someone laying out their side of the situation....but....

He sent an e-mail and after taking a few more shots at both me, and Sam...he said (and I quote):

'but you apologized and I graciously accept your apology.'

HUH??? In my opinion, taking a few more shots at both of us before saying he accepts the apology is not accepting it graciously....

But hey, he mailed Sam's software to him, and he stopped sending harassing e-mails to Sam, so that's really all I care!!

Oh and did I's less than 2 weeks to 'Awake Live?' GAH!!!! I can't wait!!!! GAH!!!

Oh good God...the petulant child rages on!!!!

on April 9, 2008 - 8:16am

'Petulant child' Where did that come from? Oh, only from my reference to my BIL who has turned out to be even more of a SH*T than I ever imagined he would be!!! He's like a child in the 'terrible twos!'

He has been badgering Sam something awful since we got home. Sam forgot some computer software at their house. So he sent an e-mail to ask them to send it. He said ok, they would send it. Then ranted and raved about how terrible we were etc.

Now they decided they won't send it until we send them money to cover postage. Oh, and he told Sam if he 'stole' anything from the office when he (Sam) went in there to get something that belongs to him, BIL is going to press charges.

WTF? Over this? He would accuse Sam of possibly stealing something, when he knows damn well Sam never would take anything that wasn't his? He would press charges? Because he thinks I insulted his little wifey-pooh?

People are freakin' insane. Well, not all people. Only him!

OK, so for Sam...I wrote a letter with the best apology I can muster, without letting him off the hook. I worded it very carefully...

"This letter is an attempt to ‘make peace’ as it were, because frankly, I am tired of us all acting like petulant children instead of the Christians we profess to be. Whether or not you accept this is not my concern. I know I will have done everything I can to patch things up.

I honestly do not know what exactly it is I did to make you so angry with me. But whatever it is, I am sincerely sorry. It was not, and would never be my intention to hurt anyone’s feelings or step on anyone’s toes.

I do admit, I was rather out of sorts by Saturday night. I felt on the defensive almost from the time we arrived, between the constant badgering about our marriage and the nearly constant, snide opinions offered regarding anything that I appreciate or feel strongly about. By Saturday afternoon, when I felt attacked over a personal trait of mine that I really have no control over, I had about had enough. (Name deleted) knows what I’m referring to, because she witnessed it, and even commented on it.

I really tried to overlook these things because this was supposed to be a happy occasion. Obviously, I failed miserably. For that, I am truly sorry.

As far as leaving without saying good-bye, I saw little purpose in sticking around to say good-bye to people who were not speaking to us anyway. If I had known Sam would be ignored all day on Monday while I was out with my friend, we would have left that day instead.

Please find enclosed a money order for $10. That should be more than enough to send Sam’s software to him."

I'm sure he will still find reason to be ticked, but if they send the software, I don't really care. If he continues to harass Sam, I will try to get him to just block his e-mail. It seems to me the only option left.

Anyway, I referred in my 'letter' to all of us acting like 'petulant children.' But, in my opinion, there is only one petulant child in this mix, and it's the ranting and raving lunatic idiot who keeps harassing Sam.

So...I've done my bit to patch things up. And if it's not good enough, oh well. The hell with them then. Because I refuse to subject myself or Sam to any more of this nonsense!

OK, on to happier things....I cannot wait for the "Awake Live" DVD to be released! It is going to be so freakin' awesome. I'm bummed that NWIA isn't on it, but I'm sure it will still totally RAWK!!!! Go Josh!

That's a week of my life that I'll never get back!

on March 28, 2008 - 1:00am

Family is a funny thing. Especially when it's not your family. And I don't mean funny--haha. I mean funny--strange, or in this case rude.

We spent several days with members of my husband's family over Easter. I didn't want to stay at their house, but they insisted we not 'waste our money on a hotel.' Why don't I listen to my gut instincts, that are NEVER WRONG?????

By Monday, things were extremely tense, and they had basically stopped speaking to us. Who does that to guests in your matter how angry you may be at them? I certainly wouldn't, but then that's me. I would do my best to 'make the best of it' knowing it would all be over soon. But not them.

Apparently one of them was angry because I was 'rude' to his wife. Honestly, maybe I was a bit rude at one point on Saturday evening, but it certainly was not intentional.

And anyway, 'he' was 'rude' to me almost from the moment we walked in the door. It seemed anything I said, thought or did, he had a snide or rude or nasty comment about. And I didn't say anything. I did my best to ignore it because I promised Sam I would 'play nice.' I let several things go until he finally made a personal attack on something I do unconsciously. Then I still didn't say anything, but I did withdraw and reduced my amount of interaction with them. And perhaps later that night I was a bit short with his wife after the third time she asked me the same question in less than 10 minutes.

Long story short...I think I'm done 'visiting' my in-laws for awhile. If Sam ever wants to go, I'll happily buy him a bus ticket, and wave bye-bye and say have fun. I don't know how soon he'll want to visit them either though. They were downright rude to him too by the end of our visit, and Sam was pretty angry when I enlightened him as to how rude 'he' was to me the whole time we were there. Oh and on a side note...why are husbands oblivious to the way their family acts toward their wives? I guess they just don't see what's 'normal' behavior for their family as anything other than...well...normal.

Now you understand the title of this little blurb. That truly is a week of my life that I'll never get back....although if I could have it back, I would stay in a hotel. ;)

Same-o, Same-o

Nothing exciting going on here at all.....except that I'm on vacation...sort of.

I have to go to my second job for a few hours this evening. Yippee!!!

But on Wednesday, we are going to Salt Lake City for a week. To visit my brother-in-law. He is getting baptized this coming weekend. Oh and I plan to have some retail therapy and to see Joivana too!!!

YAY just for getting out of town, even if it's only for a few days.

Yup, that's about it....oh and waiting for that new CD/DVD from some guy named Josh Groban....of the Salt Lake City concert on August 28, 2007. So I can relive that night over and over again. *hehehe*
