Ok, lots of things happening this month. First of all is the Sad- I lost my job so if anyone owns or runs a store in St.Louis and needs to hire help, i'm available. I had a really bad head cold and let some bad parts through on my line. I had 2 warnings and got my 3rd on the first of December when I was sick. I was fired for the first time ever. I can't blame them but I didn't like it either. I wanted to keep my job untill after the hollidays and then find something more suited to me... not scramble for a job and end up on unemployment. To make matters worse it was freezing outside that morning as I left and my car door was frozen shut. I managed to get the passenger side door open and got into the driver side. Some other women where getting off of work and their doors where frozen to so I let them sit in my car till someone brought us some hot water to put on the locks. Second is the Bad...Ok its not really bad. My boyfriend and I have now been dating for 5 months. I'm very happy with him even though he's a dirty minded "bad" boy. We want to move in together but both of us need jobs right now. Thats what is really bad. His job ended cause it was seasonal so now we both need jobs. I hate where i live but their are some good paying factories down here so he might move down here for a job. I love the thought of liveing with him but I would have prefered to move up where he lives. We will just have to wait and see what happens as far as that goes. I can put up with living here if I have him with me. After all I can always drive to the city when I want and I have put up with this place for over 10yrs now so a few more years here isnt going to hurt. The Trip- ok I went to visit family for christmas. Told them about my boyfriend. They want to meet him. I seid if we get jobs and have a week off together we might go see them next summer. My uncle wants me to move in and watch over his daughter and help his wife in return for him paying for my school and me not getting a job but I have to many bills besides school to pay like my car so I told him no. I dont think he realizes how expencive school is either. The party- Ok normally on newyears I go to the bar with my friend and I bring in the new years jeolouse of all the other girls getting kissed and me sitting their with no one. This year I had several different places I could have gone to but my boyfriend was fealling antisocial so we stayed in with his sisters and their familys and hung out. They played a bord game while I watched. We talked and had a lot of fun. The only thing missing was my boyfriends mom. Shes alot of fun but she wasnt feeling good that night so she stayed home. I had fun anyways though. I really like my boyfriends sisters. They make me feal comfortable. They are easy to talk to and one of them even hugged me goodby. I can see me being a part of their family easly... I'm so happy about that cause that means I dont have to worry about any tention in the future as this relationship with my boyfriend grows. The only thing I'm worried about now is if my brother and mom will give my boyfriend a fair chance. They both tease me a lot about my boyfriend and say mean things about him as a joke behind his back. It makes me feal bad. He's so nice to them and they act that way. I would like to say something to them to make them realize how rude they are being and that I dont want to hear that kind of thing but I dont know how to say it without exploding in anger. I thought better of my family. I thought they knew better than that. Thankfully the one person I thought would be a grouchy mean person about me haveing a boyfriend is actually really supportive. My dad, he actually invites my boyfriend over for dinner, he seems to like him, says nice things about him (only critizinig his lack of job), and says he thinks that my boyfriend is the one and that he sees us never breaking up cause we are just a very stable couple together. He seid that we seem to fit together. So thats it. Everything is mixed up and upside down. The people I thought would be nice about things are being rude and the one person who I never expect support from is the one person who is acting like a decent person. Life is weird... Thank god I have the ability to deal and friends I can talk to.

Thanks for your advice wanda_world and jjiggl. Im trying to work things out with my brother and mom. Mom isnt the easyest person to get through to but I have managed to have a couple conversations with my brother. He understands a little better now but hes still being a big mouth smarty about it. He blames it on being a teenager. I blame it on his open mouth insert foot syindome hes had since childhood and never did learn how to fix. Anyways I love them despite all that. Its just hard sometimes because it shows how little they know about how I am as a person now instead of how I was as a teen. Somehow despite living under the same roof they didnt notice that Im not a hormone ridden teen anymore and that Im an adult with diffrent views on life than I had when I was younger. Anyways I have other things to worry about. Im starting classes in phoenix online ( I had to transfer from my old college. I had to long of a break from them cause of my old job and I figure it would be easyest to do online classes since I dont know what my future holds at the moment since i have no job and my friends and my boyfriend want me to move in with them someplace around St. Louis once I do have a job) and I still need a job. I had an interview with torrid and was suppost to get a call soon. If they dont call by tomorrow morning Im going to call them. Its only part time but if I find another part time job then at lease Ill be working and off unemployment. Plus I love the idea of working for Torrid, they just have such a possitive attitude their and I love the clothing so having an employee discount would be awsome.

I'm very happy for you that things are going well for you and your boyfriend. Perhaps you losing your job will in the end be good for you, as it is making you look at other options besides working where you were. Your Mom and brother may actually like your boyfriend; they may just also enjoy picking on you. Just very nicely say to them one day something like "I know you love me and we all laugh and joke at times and you enjoy picking on me and (boyfriends name), but deep down inside it hurts me so I would appreciate it if you didn't say things that aren't nice about him, even if you mean it as a joke." If you can't just come out and speak it, one day before you leave the house, leave it where your Mom will find it while you are gone. Good luck. I hope you find something you enjoy doing soon.

Curvy Tigress: I always enjoy reading your posts. Sounds like you have a lot going on. But like they say, if you didn't have bad, you could not appreciate the good. I think it is great that your dad is getting to know your boyfriend. Usually, if a dad likes the boyfriend, then the boyfriend must be alright. I am sure that your mother and brother will fall in line soon. They are probably not used to seeing you with someone so this is just their way of dealing with it. It sucks, but that is family. Anyway, I wish you luck in school and in finding a new job.
