Who’s got the gold?
Who holds the purse?
Why do I feel time accelerating?
Why does that make it worse?
I drift into space
To a far away land
Every time money comes up
Every time I see money in my hand
Why does it make the rules?
Why does it dictate?
Why can’t we all be equal?
Why is it used to differentiate?
I used to feel on top
Now I feel I’m down below
Deep in the tunnels
Where all the survivors go
Why does it happen to the good?
Why do people have to suffer?
Why does it encourage more hate?
Why isn’t there some sort of buffer?
If I won the lottery today
I could help ease many a problem
But I can guarantee
That it takes more than that to solve them

Seriously tedious day.
I was up early after a restless usual no sleep night – partly I am sure to the fact that my mum and I watched The Thaw horror film late last night about a parasite that crawls into your skin – just thinking about it again gives me the shivers!! I went through bedbugs and so naturally anything about small creatures crawling over you is not the greatest way to make me feel relaxed. How could it to anyone!
Anyway, we had a workman come over early so was up early and had to be out of my room so I literally spent the whole day upstairs at the desk where I can get Internet….doing tedious things….dealing with tedious things! Literally – I was there from 10am sitting at that desk until close to 7pm!
First I spent hours looking for a flight for my dad to come over to London. It’s his birthday in two days so we’ve been searching for a flight over tomorrow for the week so we could be together and there was simply nothing! I mean, I would not give up as I really thought there had to be a way – I searched air miles, all airlines, cheap websites, combinations of planes…the only flights I could find that we’re not sold out were outrageous in price! So now we’re all disappointed. I can hear it in my dad’s voice too. I’ve never spent a birthday away from him. And I know he will be over for when the schmonkie is here and that’s not far away, but it’s just sad.
Then I had to move on to figuring out Stuart’s flight to come over for when Fashion finishes. So more searching and irritation at how expensive things are. I was however able to figure out a way to pay out less by using some of my mum’s air miles. Annoyingly I discovered that my mum’s United air miles had expired and she had lost a lot – enough for two trips to USA and back – and this happened in March when my parents were sick and of course pre-occupied and nobody checked. But there was an option for reinstatement for money so to do so and use air miles brings the price down for Stuart. A little more successful, or we’ll see, but again was not ideal.
Then had to deal with mortgage emails and a lack of understanding and miscommunication with back and forth of emails that were driving me crazy! They kept saying they didn’t have attachments when they did and not understanding what I was talking about, and all of this is from my blackberry as my work email is on there. I was trying to take care of things to keep Stuart from having to deal with it as he was busy at work today, but my blood started to boil….I was already stressed from the day so far and I just couldn’t deal with re-explaining again and again, using different tactics. I had to give up and asked Stuart to just re-send what we had sent over ten days ago on his lunch break.
I knew I needed to get out and away from the desk and soon.
Instead I tried to do as much as I could as I was already at the desk. I have to swap over planners as my current one ends in three days and I have been putting it off! I have to copy by hand all my notes and all that into the new planner – yup, I still believe in hand written planners versus on my blackberry. I fear for everything being wiped! And actually something happened to my blackberry a few weeks ago and all my photos were wiped! Which was horrible!! So I now have less faith in the technological planner than ever! But copying everything is….
Anyway, it got to 7pm and I just couldn’t do anymore. I needed to get up and out and some fresh air…to breathe out the stress of today.
Out for a walk around the park!!
What a day. A tedious one.
Day 174: June 30th, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!
Cardio was = Walking
Dance of the Day was = “Breakeven” by The Script
Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Baby Shower”
Anything to Note =
Today was my baby shower!!
Thank you Paloma, Tess, Brianna and Elisabeth for hosting and throwing me a wonderful and amazing baby shower!!! You guys are amazing and the best, and too good to me!!
Thank you guys for also creating the Fat Jar! And taking some of my money!!! ARGH!!! I was warned this would exist at the baby shower – if I called myself Fat I would have to put a dollar into the Fat Jar! Well, I thought it was just the word Fat, but apparently it applied to any synonym of the word Fat…so when I called myself a Whale…twice apparently…I lost some money!
And I really had to catch myself since I wore a form-fitting, or rather bump-forming, dress today. I figured I had to actually show off the bump since the day was about the bump!! And celebrating the bump! So I couldn’t wear my usual hiding massive outfits!
So when I tried to lie down on the loungers to do some Zoe tanning, (although people came to get me out of the sun and not overheat the little schmonkey so that failed), and people were taking photos I called myself a Whale….and BOOM!! There went some money!
So it worked guys as I held back as much as I could after that!!!
It was a great day!! Even though the little schmonkey did not give Tess or Michelle what they wanted – a bubble!! The little schmonkey was probably mad at me for being in the heat, and on my feet all day, and eating all kinds of random food!
Tess tried very hard to get some sort of kick – she sang to the belly, she spoke to the belly, she blew raspberries into the belly! She even went through names to see if any of them would get a reaction! Sadly, he did not give Auntie Tess anything! Already a rebel, I see!
Thank you to all that came up to the rooftop in Harlem to celebrate with us – especially to Michelle who traveled all the way from Maryland to be with us today!
I will miss you all when gone for the next six months!! 😦
No really….that’s SOOOO weird!
