Leesa’s Life

Archive for November 2009

Most homes, on the eve of Thanksgiving, are beginning to have the wonderful scents and aromas of delicious food wafting throughout.  Mine, however, is a different story.  My house stinks.  Why?  Because my hubby hit a SKUNK on his way back from town tonight and it sprayed my car…A LOT!  Even after running my car through the car wash FOUR times, it still reeks.  Even parking the car OUTSIDE and not in the garage, the stench has made its way into the house.  I have candles galore burning.  I’ve sprayed air freshener all over the house.  NOTHING IS WORKING.  It’s to the point that the smell is making me sick to my stomach.  Maybe it’s a good thing that I’m not cooking a big meal for friends and family tomorrow.  I don’t think anybody would have much of an appetite.



Wow!  I can’t believe that I didn’t write any posts in October.  I knew it had been awhile.  With everything that has been going on, I guess my blog was the last thing on my mind.  Let me give you a short version of all the things that have been happening.

1)  Hubby and I came thisclose to getting a divorce.  Things had been getting worse and worse between us and the stress finally caught up with us both.  We’re working on it now, things aren’t too bad (depending on the day of the week), but I still wonder sometimes if I should have just went ahead and gone through with leaving.

2)  My cousin died unexpectedly two weeks ago.  She was only 38 years old.  One minute she was there, living her life…the next minute, she was gone.  They think she had a massive heart attack.  At least that’s what the coroner says.

3) Daughter was diagnosed with depression then a few weeks later she passed out in class and we thought that she might have a heart problem.  The doctor did a bunch of blood work and ruled out anemia, blood sugar issues, thyroid issues, etc and the next step was heart tests.  She had an echocardiogram and thankfully it came back normal so we are back to square one.  ECSTATIC that she doesn’t have a heart problem, but still looking for an answer as to why she fainted (this was the 3rd time that it happened)

4) The holidays are coming up and, for me, I really wish they would just go away.  I’ve become such a Scrooge about them in the past several years.  I think because of  all the problems with hubby that I’ve had.  It is hard to be excited about a holiday when you know there is going to more then likely be a fight at some point….either over money, an unwanted gift, too many visitors, etc…there will almost certainly be some sort of tiff.   I watch Christmas specials (movies) on tv and they actually piss me off anymore because I’m annoyed that my life isn’t like that.  Not exactly the point of a holiday movie, is it?

That’s pretty much it.  Guess there was  a reason why I hadn’t written any posts.  My life has been hectic, but really not post worthy.
