ugh.

I really don’t like using this blog to vent about things, but I figured since I do pay for the domain and hosting here, I can use it for whatever I like.

I am just really tired of being used. I am tired of people only contacting me when they want something. That’s the only time they ever call/text. But I find it hard to say “no”. I know that if I do, they will probably get mad and stop talking to me. But hey, I’ve figured out, when people are angry with me, they don’t ask me for favors all the time. They pretty much don’t talk to me. So maybe that’s what I need to do. I just really hate to have people mad at me. I’m hesitant about putting details on here just in case they find this blog. I will just say that the person texts me at the last minute needing a favor. And I think they do that because they think I’ll feel obligated to do it if they make me think they have no one else to help them. It just makes me angry though. It makes me angry because they don’t consider that I may have things to do. I got a text tonight from the person and I have chosen to ignore it for now. If they needed my help that much, why not text me earlier tonight or even earlier today?
Maybe I should just make everyone mad at me so they will stop asking for stuff all the time. It would be nice not to get texts all the time from people who just want to use me.

Trip to the zoo!

We decided a few weeks ago to go to an overnight trip to Louisiana. We stayed in Slidell which is about 30 minutes from New Orleans. We’d never been to the Audubon Zoo there before so we decided to go. For the most part, people in NOLA are pretty nice, except for the drivers. Some of them would honk the horn as soon as the light turned green. I guess they expected you to punch the gas as soon as the light changed. But for the most part, people were pretty friendly.

I took a bunch of pictures. I’ll post some and then you can look at the others on photobucket if you want :).

Snow day!

I still have no idea how to get the backup of my wordpress uploaded. I’ve tried everything I could find online.  So I guess until I learn how, I won’t have any of my archives on here.  I’m trying not to let it tick me off too much.

Anyway, the kids have a snow day today. Well, the school was actually open but I got a text from the alert system they have here in the county and it said that several bridges were beginning to ice up.  I was not about to put my kids on a school bus.  So they stayed home and played in the snow a bit.  Of course, in Mississippi the snow doesn’t last long. It all  melted about an hour ago.  But I did manage to get some really good pics earlier today.

I don’t even know where to begin to get all of my old stuff back, I have a backup but I’m not sure how recent it is. And I don’t have the money to pay anyone to help me sort stuff out.  The webhost was basically just like “If you’ve been hacked, you’re on your own”. That was not their exact words but that was pretty much their attitude.  I am not that happy with them lately anyway because the company who used to own them sold it to another company. And they went up on the prices. This is not the first time I’ve been hacked since I’ve been with this company. The last time it was supposedly because I didn’t keep wordpress updated. Well I made sure that I did that and I still got hacked. So I may try to use another company or something. I don’t know.  Ok, well I need to go and upload another picture and redo the whole about me section!
