Family Talks

So my cousin called today. It was nice we got caught up. I am excited she's coming to visit in Oct. And she promised this time so I am going to hold her to it. She's the blond. I think we are like 10 in this picture. I am not sure where I found this but I am sure it will embarrass her.
Oh and my mom called. She wants to come out for 2 weeks.
2 weeks. See I love my mom but I do not think as far as I can remember that we have ever really spent a lot of time together. She says her therapist thinks it would be a good idea for her to get away, lay in the sun, spend some time with family.
We have made plans for Vegas if she comes, you can not fly all the way out here and not go to Vegas. We are going to plan for the next couple of days.
Its sucks that I have to go back to work right now, but its probably better this way then we can spend time together at night. I love my husband to death but I think he will love me less if my mom is here for 2 weeks. We'll see how it all works out.

The hubby is at a job interview, his first now he's done school. I hate that we are both looking for a job right now. Its not as bad for him though cause he's already got a job he's been at for 4 years so he's stable there and its not a must that he gets a new one, all the pressure is on me.

Ahhh pressure

Its so gloomy outside

So we are supposed to get rain. And a lot of it. People are freaking out and its the only thing on the news other than the story about the mountain lion sleeping in someone's front yard.
Its funny how the weather sometimes plays with my mood. I wanted to stay in bed all day today, in fact I have moved momentarily to the couch to type this then I will iron my hubbies dress shirt (did I mention I do not iron?) he has an interview tonight so I hope I do I good job. It will probably still look like a 5 year old ironed it.
Hey I did not own an iron till I got married. If it needs to be ironed I do not buy it! Maybe secretly that's why I married a military guy. True story he used to iron the stuff at my place for me when we were dating.
Ahh I did marry a good man.

I am waiting to apply for anymore jobs because I have to call tomorrow to find out if I got the job I interviewed for on Thursday. I am going to be really upset if I do not get it.
I am excited about going back to work!

Yes it is possible

I have gone 2 days almost without blogging. I know weird. I usually post 3-4 times a day. The last few days have been uneventful. Nothing going on in my life other than the job search and hanging out with the Hubby. He's finally done school after 4 long years so the next few weeks will be an adjustment with him not going to school all the time.
It will be good to have a new job soon. I am dying to get back to work. I never thought I would say that, actually I was looking to go back to work after being injured on the second week, the first week was cool, time off but remember I was also laying in bed 24 hours out of the day because of my back.
I miss work.
I miss shopping for clothes for work.
If I go back to work I need to buy new "work" shoes. (sure I do)
I will also shower everyday (maybe depends how late I get up I am sick like that)
AAHH work.
I need a job...

Is anyone else watching the Olympics?

I have tried to watch some of it but it makes me fall asleep mostly. I try to watch the skating but after you have seen one routine they all seem to look the same. I like the summer Olympics better. I think I am biased though cause the summer Olympics has Gymnastics and well I am a big fan. Could be because I did 9 years of competitive gymnastics.
USA~ 23 Medals
Canada~ 20 medals.
I would also like to add that Canada women's Hockey team kicked ass and won Gold.
Looks like Canada is right on the US heals... Lol...

The best compliment EVER!

The weirdest thing happened today.
I went to the Casino to kill time while Craig was at school and I am sitting there minding my own business and this guy walks by and looks at me like he knows me (he doesn't) and he was with his girlfriend so I know he was not trying to pick me up, and then he walked by again and stopped and tapped me on the shoulder.
"Excuse me Miss? Do you do the Dove commercials?"
Me "I'm Sorry?"
"You have the most beautiful skin!"
This makes me blush (and it takes a lot to make me blush) and his girlfriend also agrees and says again out loud "You have such beautiful skin"
So everyone sitting at the blackjack table lean in and now everyone is staring at me some agree with them and a few of them nod and the lady next to me says "I was going to say something, it just so radiant!"
So now I am beet red and the guy says.
"I just had to stop and say something you are a beautiful girl"
Again his girlfriend nods her approval.
And usually I would be the attention whore and just love all the attention but I was just SO surprised and caught of guard.
What a great compliment.

So tomorrow I am going to find a random stranger and compliment them...

Friggin Hell!

Ok so I am an active Volunteer with The American Red Cross, and I had a meeting at the branch office tonight because my dumb ass agreed to do presentations for them at local schools.
When I agreed to do said presentations I did not really stop to think to much about it, I agreed and I had thought that 5 other people agreed but it was clear at the meeting that I will be the only one doing the presentations. Alone, in front of about 150 kids per presentation.
I am not worried about the presentation part, well because that's just me things like speaking in front of groups of people does not bother me but it's the commitment that I made. And seeing how I am the only one who showed up I feel bad about wanting to back out.
One day a week for 3 months. See I am looking at this in a selfish way because its a lot of my own time.
AH frig. I do love kids though so I guess it will be fun.....

Friggin hell who agreed to let me leave an impression on little kids.

My American Idol

So excited for the show tonight. I missed the ladies on Tuesday but the men did well so it is going to be a great season!!
So of the men here are my top 5
Chris~Ok he's hot and has a great voice~
Sway~ He was the only one who did something completely different~
Taylor~ He is so likeable, and such a great spirit~
Ace~ Because America is going to find him hot and he sings good too~
Elliot~ He's not much to look at but the boy can sing~

Not naming names but some of the guys really blew it last night!
And whats with the cocky bastards always looking into the cameras?? I HATE THAT! Why did the change things from last year and tell them to do this??

Anyways just my thought!

Who's your top 5?

WEEhooo I should have a job soon!

I had an interview today that went REALLY well, I was not going to blog about it cause I did not want to get too excited however I am excited so here you go.
The interview was and hour and a half and they had me do 100 different test and other office stuff but I think it went well.
Now watch they hire someone else..
That would be my luck all excited and then not get the job. But it has yet to happen in my life time that I do not get the job after the interview (yes I am just that damm charming)
Here's hoping
Oh and the best part??
They offered me more money than I asked for.
And work would be 2.9 miles from home. How friggin cool is that??
When does that ever happen? You get more than you asked for and its a hop skip and a jump from home?
I will not know until Tuesday which just happens to be the day of another interview I have with the county.
So keep your fingers crossed for me ok?

I am not a horrible person!

Oh I forgot,
While sitting in the waiting room with the reading materials I brought from home to entertain me (a few magazines that I had read but was going to re-read and leave for another fan)
So I am done re-reading my magazines and start to rip the front cover to take off my mailing address and I hear directly across from me this "GASP"
I look up to see an older lady sitting rather properly staring at me in disbelief.
The GASP was so loud as to have other on lookers also glance and give me dirty looks, I rip an article of interest from one of them and another "GASP" even louder this time so for some dumb ass reason I feel a need to validate myself by responding to all the dirty looks and addressing the rather quiet waiting area.
"These are mine I brought them from home"
So the old lady looks at me disgusted with my behavior like I just slapped a little kid for doing nothing at all...
Anyways I explained to the room who was giving me dirty looks.
"Theses are mine"
What I should have said was
"What the fuck are you looking at?? Mind your own damm business"

I still felt guilty about ripping shit from my own magazines.


Babies any one?

So this friend of mine called the other day and she had a doctors appointment it turns out her husband was out of town so I offered to meet up with her so she would not have to be alone.
Yeah I arrive at what I thought would be a doctors office and it turned out to be a hospital
*** a little back story, not only do I hate doctors but I am deathly afraid of hospitals, Lets just say I have spent way too much time in hospitals and when I even get into proximity of one I become really nervous and nauseas****
Ok where was I? Oh we arrive
in separate cars at the Big Scary Hospital and go in, the smells start to make me sick and my hands start to shake, I put that to the back of my mind and try to remember why we are here. Not for me. We check in and proceed to the waiting room in the OBGYN.
I LOVE WOMEN WHO ARE PREGNANT. Not in a sick gross way but I think pregnant women are so beautiful, there were SO many!! Some with little bumps some with HUGE bumps one girl looked like she could go into labor any minute.
And today is a proud day that I did not even puke, there were a few minutes that I almost did and made sure I knew where the bathroom was in case, but I did good.

Oh and if he biological clock was not ticking before going there today it certainly is now! I was like a kid in a candy store peaking at all the babies coming in for check ups, playing peek-a-boo with the baby in the chair beside me...
Babies are so cute!!

Little Old Lady love it!

I made her cry, it was so cute she was SO surprised and ran around telling EVERYONE in earshot that her daughter baked her a cake, and insisted on it being cut into one thousand pieces to no one missed out on the tastiness...

AAHH to be old...

Wait, I am getting there, I found a gray hair today and it was long.
Guess what I did.... I pull it out.
Shut up I know 2 will grow back but I did it anyways.
I would be cute grey... Yeah right

No laughing at me for this!

Ok So I go to Bingo occasionally... In my Bingo adventures I have met this really cute couple and everytime I go I sit with them.
They are 80 years old, actually Lisa's birthday is today and she's 78.
So they made me promise I would be there tonight (they tell everyone at Bingo I am there daughter which is no way possible because they are Filipino but everyone goes with it and everyone knows me as there daughter)
Anyways so I baked her a cake. I know cheesy but she's an old lady and she loves sweets.
I also got her a little file folder thing for all her coupons because she's always losing things and I personalized it for her with her name and cute little flower stickers. Also cheesy I know but I hope she likes it.

I hope when I am 80 I will have the spirit that the two of them have, they are always joking around and hugging everyone. They are cute really.

Have I ever said "I Hate Doctors?"

Serious the doctor I am required to see is a dumb as we will call him Dr. Dumbass, so I go for a follow up today and he says
"So when do you want to do the surgery?"
"Yeah your only option now is surgery when will you be ready?"
"I think I will wait and think about it, get myself into tip top shape and then maybe we can talk surgery, this is what the "final" doctor said would work best, because is it not true even if I have the surgery it may not change things?
"Well that can be true but you will never know"

I HATE DOCTORS! One says one thing another says another.....

SO I declined the surgery for the time being and I will revisit the idea in about a year and see where I am at. For now I will deal with the Vicodin comas on my bad days and deal with the pain on the "better" days.

AAHHH good days

I need to get drunk!

I need to go home soon I think.
Its almost been a year, the longest I have gone without a visit.
Too bad I need to get a job.

On another note I got a note back from the County Exam I went to, they say I passed now they want to interview me. So 2 interviews this week 1 for next week.

"Love" In the Animal sense of it-Stupid facts

Porcupines in order to make love, have to put down their spikes. They must lay down their only defense against the world in order to make a connection.

What if love is about the willingness to expose yourself and expose your everything with the chance you can be hurt? You leave it all to fate and trust it will all work out?

Penguins prefer to be `married', but they suffer long separations due to their migratory habits. When reunited, a pair will stand breast to breast, heads thrown back, singing loudly, with outstretched flippers trembling. Two weeks after a pair is formed, their union is consummated. Neither penguin will mate again that year. Actually, the Adelie penguins are known to mate for life.

Monogamy in the animal world? Its beautiful. Penguins have it all figured out. The way they great each other after being away for a long while is VERY similar to situations I have acted out and seen acted out in airports, train stations, bus stations all around the world.

WHITE-FRONTED PARROTS-These birds, native to Mexico and and Central America, are believed to be the only species besides humans to kiss. Before actually mating, male and female will lock their beaks and gently flick their tongues together. If kissing is satisfying for both parties, the male boldly takes the next step, by regurgitating his food for his girlfriend, to show his love. White-fronted parrots also share parenting, unlike many other species. When the female lays her one egg, both parents take turns incubating it. When the baby hatches, the couple feed and care for their offspring together.

How cute. I am not sure about the regurgitation however I am sure its a real "turn on" for the ladies. (the birds I mean) I think its amazing that both the male and female take care of the babies.

LYNX SPIDERS-When a male lynx spider feels the urge, he will capture his beauty in his web and wrap her in silk. Offering her this elegant meal (the silken web) is his way of wooing. When the mood is right, the female, distracted by her feast, will allow her suitor to mount her and begin mating. Oblivious, she ignores him and enjoys her supper.
(sorry no pick just looking at them on line gives me the creeps!! And they are one ugly ass spider!)
Does this draw a resemblance to anything we do? Dinner offering lol. If she's "satisfied" she allows him to mate with her??
Spiders EWWW I thought the resemblance to humans was uncanny

Ok really what else can I post about @ 3 am in the morning with insomnia attached to me like I had beat it to death and stole its dog?
Sounded funnier in my head
HOLY SHIT! Did you know MTV shows music videos this late at night? Serious I have just seen 3 in a row with no interuption of reality TV or Room Raiders!! (true story my friend works for FOX who actually films Room Raiders and she is required to watch EVERY episod to screen it for foul language, as well as NEXT. Serious she's the "bleep" girl)
I would shoot myself if I had to watch that crap ALL DAY!!

Ok this was disturbing!

Pick your language, watch it once.

What Really Happened to the Pentagon on 9/11?

Then watch it again!

My reaction?
"What the Fuck!"

Sunday, February 19, 2006


OMG!! And the caps is to emphasis how much I LOVE the show. See last week was a carry on from the week before THAT WAS FANTASTIC!! I love this show. If you have not seen it yet I would HIGHLY recommend you start to watch it.
She's going to break his heart we all know this and the red head bitch will move away with the scorn lover because lets face it the marriage is over because of her bitchy whoring around ways...

(and for all those adoring fans... Yes I found a picture that did not have the cheating scanky wife I LOVE IT!)

Anyways I am hooked its addicting. Its weird as I re-read what I wrote it sounds like I am talking about a soap opera....Its not. Just a show with GREAT writers!

Blogger is eating my post???

So I have had a few people ask "What happened to that post?"
Blogger is eating them...
Has anyone else had this problem? I post it and then its gone??

Things that have been eaten

American Idol- Rantings in Red (pointing to the side bar) her friend Patrick Hall has made it to the final 12 men on the show. So if you would like to vote for someone who sort of knows someone who's blog you read then vote for him.

I love a good pedicure was another post.

Pretty interesting stuff really, I think blogger is eating the shitty post and does not like American idol or feet apparently.

Reasons I want to buy a house

1. Then there is no excuse not to have
2. I could have a scrapbook studio.
3. I could have a dog.
4. I could park my car in a garage. (not that it matters this is southern California)
5. More room for my shoes and purses.
I would say #6 is my favorite, cause if you buy a house you then must furnish and decorate said house.... Ahhh what fun at least the hubby and I have the same sort of decorating ideas...

Fight with the hubby

I'm not a fighter I'm a lover.
Sometimes you need for things to be put into perspective so that you can move on.
God I love that man!

Thursday, February 16, 2006

Ok I am done being upset.

Its a bit because of PMS a bit of the husband stressing me out more than I need to be.
Yes I know I need to get a job. Yes I know I need to get a job quick. Yes I realize (in fact I spend most of the day worring about this) we will be up shit creek if I do not get a job soon. Yes I applied for a million jobs today. Yes I checked that site too. I am doing all that I can but it will not make it happen any sooner.
Ok really done now.

So frustrated I want to cry!

I actually already did but I think I will again.
So frustrated with everything right now.

Looking for jobs sucks

I found a few that I will apply for.
The California DMV is hiring. Yep I was going to apply then I stopped to think about it. Guess what they are looking for? Driving test people.
ARE YOU FRIGGIN NUTS?? You could never pay me enough money to test people on there driving skills. Although I did score a 99% on my own driving test (as she pats herself on the back) I could never spend an entire day with new drivers... Props to the people that can, I could never. And guess how much they start out at? 8$ an hour, then they move up in salary but could you imagine?
No thank you.
So I have spent the last 3 days applying to every position that has come across my lap that will allow me to sit all day (not because I have a choice either)

Dropped a few bags of donations at goodwill.

When I got home I was so excited to see the message light flashing, I quickly got a pen and paper to write down all the names and phone numbers of people who want to interview me. I was so excited.

No one called for an interview,just the-mother-in-law.

One flaw in Women


By the time the Lord made woman,
He was into his sixth day of working overtime.

An angel appeared and said,
"Why are you spending so much time on this one?"

And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her?
She has to be completely washable, but not plastic,
Have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable,
and be able to run on water and leftovers,
have a lap that can hold four children at one time,
have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a
broken heart,
and she will do everything
with only two hands."

The angel was astounded at the requirements.
"Only two hands!? No way!
And that's just on the standard model?
That's too much work for one day.
Wait until tomorrow to finish."

"But I won't," the Lord protested.
"I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close
to my own heart.
She already heals herself when she is sick
AND can work 18 hour days."

The angel moved closer and touched the woman.
"But you have made her so soft, Lord."

She is soft," the Lord agreed,
"but I have also made her tough.
You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.

The Lord replied,
"Not only will she be able to think,
she will be able to reason and negotiate."

The angel then noticed something,
and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek.
"Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model.
I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."

"That's not a leak," the Lord corrected,
"that's a tear!"

"What's the tear for?" the angel asked.

The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy,
her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love,
her loneliness, her grief and her pride."

The angel was impressed.
"You are a genius, Lord.
You thought of everything!
Woman is truly amazing."

AND SHE IS!!!!!!

Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness,love and joy.

They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.

They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.

They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel

They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.

Women have vital things to say and everything to give.

The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.

Isn't it funny?

How you check your bank balance hoping that somehow it has changed and there is more money than you thought?

(insert title before each sentence)

How no matter what time of day you go to Wal-Mart there will always be a screaming kid following you around?

The bread always falls peanut butter side down?

When you are in a hurry you ALWAYS end up behind "Miss Daisy"?

How when someone is a bad driver we drive by yelling at them as if they can hear us through all the windows?

And It makes you feel better?

When you drive by a car accident you pray under your breath that everyone is ok?

We will always decide to eat better ...Tomorrow?

That just when you need them the most, a random friend/family calls?

That its seems everyone else's lives are way more glamorous than your own?

That the simple things in life are what pleases you most?

That children can be so honest and say whatever comes to mind and ask a million questions?

That as adults for some reason we lose that due to our own insecurities of for fear of what people might think?

How as you age you sometimes think " If I knew then what I know now?"

That when you hear a young child laughing hysterically it will make you smile?

That no matter how much you eat at a dinner out you will always think about dessert?

That for some reason most women have some sort of insecurities about our bodies?

For no reason at all?

That when you find the one person you are supposed to be with in your life you hold on like hell and breath a sigh of relief that your soul in now complete?

That even thought someone says "Don't worry" it never eases the worry?

That when the shit really comes down your family and friends will come out of the woodwork?

That you wonder some times how a celebrity can be so stupid?

That you have planned a few times over what the first thing you would do if you won the lottery?

Just thinking out loud....

Nothing like chocolate for breakfast

Ha ha.
And you know what? I am not even going to feel guilty about it because I am certain that I am not the only one who woke up this morning and has only consumed chocolate. And even if I am the only one eating chocolate for breakfast I will let you know that, that is also what I will be having for lunch....'
hummm Chocolate.

OK too funny not to post.

The hubby asked me not to but being how I found it hilarious and we laughed about it for about 1/2 an hour I need to post it.
He had school tonight and I went to bingo instead of staying home alone. We talked on the phone and concurred that we would exchange Valentines stuff later in the night when we were both together. When I got home there were pretty flowers and lots of chocolate waiting for me. My husband always has the nack of picking out the most beautiful cards. If you ask him he would deny it because he's a tough guy but I know better.
Anyways we open the cards together and I am stumped, I start to laugh my ass off and he looks at me and says "What?"
This was the card I received.

For those who are just tuning in.
We have no kids.

I started to tease him that this was proof that men really do not pay attention or even like Valentines day.
Of coarse there was an explanation and a beautiful letter inside but its still hilarious.

This is one Valentines day I will never forget. And I can tell the grandkids about for a good laugh.

Reasons I love my Husband- Part 1

Because its Valentines Day this was a good day to post the first even installment of the Reasons I love my husband.

1. That even though there was no way possible to keep the puppy he feverishly searched the internet for ideas of where to get her shots, where to have her groomed, where to get the best pet supplies and food, even researching the best dog food for a little puppy and when the realization came to us both ( it was 4:30 am and the puppy had just startled us awake for the 10th time that night and was licking and kicking) that we could not keep the puppy, he held me kissed my forehead and said "At least we are not sending her to the pound, you can at least visit and take her on walks whenever you want, (He holds my head up looks in my eyes) AND I PROMISE AS SOON AS WE BUY OUR HOUSE YOU CAN HAVE ANY PUPPY YOU WANT"

2. No matter how my body changes good or bad I still catch him stealing glances and me.

3. He always kisses me when he comes home or when he is leaving and he also tells me he loves me at least 3 times a day.

4. When Oprahs show comes on about Sexless marriages he turns to me coyly with a little wink and says "Well we had better make sure OUR marriage is not sexless" and chases me into the bedroom screaming and wrestling me down to the bed, where he (after I am pinned) looks at me and tells me "I love you so much"

5. The way he smells.

6. His hands.

7. The way he kisses me and takes care of me when I am sick (and I happen to be sick or hurting a lot lately.)

8. That if my insomnia is bad he will wake up at the wee hours of the morning and because I am still not in bed he will check to see if I am ok.

9. For better or worse he is always optimistic about everything even if I am freaking out.

Happy Valentines Day Everyone!

Oh and for all you single ladies I found a great deal on Husbands at Target. So I was wondering who would like me to pick them up one? I know there are no targets in Canada so Sara, Lisa, Shan I am taking orders. I amuse myself sometimes. I am also thinking coming up with my own series of Valentines cards. The first one would read (for the men) Happy Valentines Day Then on the inside This better mean I am getting laid because I did remember to get you a card. I am thinking of other ones too. Valentines day is almost as bad as the day before Christmas at the stores, I wonder why we put so much emphasis on Valentines day. Weird. I just do not understand, maybe its cause I am spoiled and I have always had someone on Valentines day?

Its never a good day when you wake up with diarrhea

Too much info I know but that's life.
I blame my husband, he's been sick with a cough for over a month now, I was sick for a bit but then I got over it. He's still hacking and wheezing, and now it seems I am getting sick again.
Anyways so the bowels are taking life out on me, which is so much fun when I had to go do an exam where you are not allowed to leave the room "in case" you cheat.
The exam was funny.
Some guy left because "If you do not let me use a calculator I am not going to bother finishing this exam"
The lady took his test ripped it in half and asked him to leave.
He must have gotten stumped on the question that said
"Park admission is $0.50 per person, you have 3 people including yourself and give the lady a $5 bill. How much change should you receive?"
I could see how that would complicate some people.
Oh and someone forgot to send me the memo that I was required to wear ripped jeans, flip flops and a dirty t-shirt to the exam.
I hate when that happens 30 people in the exam and me and one other guy are in suits everyone else looked as if they had receive a party invite to the beach or a frat party after the exam.
I am slowly learning how they do things out here.
I feel like I am going to puke and shit at the same time.
What fun.

It has come to my attention that I have a big ass

This is how I feel. I posted this so you could grasp the magnitude of my ass issues. I need to get back to the gym. I know I say that once in a while but it is time. When I can feel how big my ass is, its time.
My goal for this year was to run a 1/2 marathon, its something I always wanted to do and I could have if I had kept up my conditioning ( I used to run cross country in high school but that was a long time ago) but with my back being so messed up the doctor said I should take it easy...
Getting back into shape sounds like fun (sort of like getting a pap smear sort of fun)
Serious though I need to do it. And hey the better shape I am in the more I can eat what ever I want. I always say I could never diet, I love food too much and I worry that if I am taken from this world tomorrow I want to know I ate and enjoyed the dessert I had with dinner. (this is how my ass got so big)
Tomorrow is a new day.

You are all lucky I do not own a digital camera!

I know, I know yes its the year 2006 and I am probably the only one on the planet who does not own one. The Hubby has offered to purchase one but I keep telling him no. I have been tempted on 2 occasions last year I almost buckled and bought one (once before Hawaii and then again when we shipped out with the Red Cross) but for some reason I prefer the little Fuji quick snaps. Maybe its because I love to scrapbook and with a digital camera I would always be afraid of losing it. (sort of like the camera that was left on the plane after finishing the film on the way home from Hawaii)
When I am bored I amuse myself. If I has a digital camera you would all know probably too much about my life.
I would post pictures to amuse myself.
I may even go to the mall and snap a pic of a "cheesy" outfit or of a classy guy with a mullet. Who knows how far I would go.
I am snickering at the thoughts of me posting pictures of random strangers and making up of stories about how they are my friends.
To be honest I do not know anyone out here. All my friends are on the East coast.
I miss them.
Oh and I thought I would rub it in to all my friends that it was 76 degrees out today and I got to wear a tank top and capris.
I know you are jealous.
Oh and for your amusement I found this picture of me when I was blond which was about 7 years ago (I finally came to my senses).
I can not believe I am posting this. I think the picture is hilarious. I am really not that scary looking in person.
Or maybe I am and no one has told me to my face yet.

A relaxing Sunday

Not much to report of the weekend. Being that I am broke and will be until I find a new job (hopefully soon) I stayed close to home. The hubby and I went to do groceries today which is always fun.
I like being an adult sometimes, you get to buy as much junk as you want and no one can yell at you for it.
He laughed at me when I grabbed a box of fruitloops. I like them even thought they have way to much fat and sugar in them, sometimes you have to eat bad to feel better.
So early tomorrow the job hunt starts. I have an exam to do at 11am with the court house. Nothing bad its for a job with the county but the give you an exam to make sure you can read, write and understand English. Last time I checked (ok yeah I usually use spell check but who doesn't)I think I should be ok.
As long as they do not test my French skills I should be good.

I am really looking forward to Grey's Anatomy tonight, they left you hanging last week and it was SUCH A GOOD ONE!

When a stranger calls

It goes up there with one of the worst movies ever. Its so predictable and some of the stuff is just plain stupid!!
Do not waste your money. I would not even recommend renting it.

My idea to make me millions

Ok serious.
I have a problem.
At first it was not a big problem.
Now its a big problem.
I am addicted to blog.
Serious. I have a problem sleeping (I always have) and now more than ever I find myself surfing blogs to kill the time from I'm not tired to I have read enough.
I am certain without a doubt that I am not the only one with this problem.

Yeah you know who you are (and laugh at just reading that)

You check your "favorites" feverishly through out the day to see the latest updates?
You need to comment because "They like to get comments and really care what you have to say"

YOU LOVE IT WHEN YOU GET COMMENTS, and you check a few times a day to see if anyone reads this shit and has something to say about your life.

And when they comment like a mouse scurrying for a piece of cheese you fly over to there blog to see what there life is like? (because it's got to be glamorous if they are reading your blog) you engross yourself and when you get there you add it too favorites to see if maybe you will come back?

And if its really FABULOUS you add them to links?

If you have ever "just been bored" and used the little button at the top NEXT BLOG, "just to see" who's updating?

If you have ever watched the sign in page to Blogger and caught someone updating and snuck a peak into there lives?

Ah yeah.

So I am in the process of writing the 12 steps to blog addiction (and why when I spell check BLOG is spelled incorrect and not in the directory?)

I will keep you all posted as to the progress of my book. Oh and you will all recieve a free copy (I KNOW WHO YOU ARE)

Friday, February 10, 2006

So I got this email

And you send it too everyone in your address book and ask for them to respond in ONE WORD what word they would use to describe you.

Here's the List




INSANE (in a good way of course)



These responses have not been altered in any way. So I learned some things about myself.

I only have 6 friends. Where in fact it was sent to about 30.

Everyone sort of thinks I am crazy. And for some reason I have no idea where they get this from? ** insert looking surprised and eyelash batting****

So for the readers who really do not know me I tried to find the best pictures that would really give you an idea of what I am like.

So I found these. Yes those are super heroes and I have no idea where this pictures was taken ( I am in the red)
Oh and the tiara? Yeah I do not know how this one got in there but yes I have a tiara and yes that is a wedding dress. Ha ha.. Now who went as far to alter this picture of me, a lady of distinction and class like me?? Double fisting on her wedding day?? Come on?

What a day

So I had an interview today at Adelphia in the call center.
I get there the girl gives me the one over (I was in a suit and she was 17)
Anyways we are walking down the hall to met the "others" that would be interviewing me and she starts
"Well the position pays $7 an hour....."
I cut her off
"Oh I'm sorry did you say $7?"
"Yeah the position is in one of our retail stores processing payments"
"Oh I thought this was for a call center position"
"No we are not hiring for our call centers right now"
THINKING IN MY HEAD WHAT THE FUCK ITS 8am IN THE FRIGGIN MORNING and you guys mess up and drag me out here...
I apologized for MY confusion (knowing damn well that I never applied for the wrong job) And I kindly decline wasting any more of there time.
Anyways needless to say I never finished the interview.
I was really angry actually about the whole situation then I come home and check the web site. Yup still says call center.

Sorry bad day.

Then I call the lawyer about my paycheck from workmans comp. It turns out the insurance has over paid me (they were supposed to go down to 1/4 of the payments on Dec 14th) I thought they would at least mail me something about the change but they have not and they go from the day that the final doctors report went out.
So that means by my calculations that they will not be sending me anything for the next 3 months.

SHIT...The next couple of months are going to be crap.
So that means I need to have a job secured by yesterday. So I went down the Appleone employment office, I had been there once before when I had just become legal in the states and it never really panned out for anything. But I thought what the hell I'll try again.
I was there for over 2 hours, they did a bunch of testing 2 interviews they even offered me a job with them working the front desk. Funny how things happen, 5 minutes after talking to me she told me I could have the position because she could tell I would fit well. After watching the receptionist for about an hour (while I was doing the testing) we talked about how well I would fit in. It was a lot of work and she rarely has time to sit.
Which for me poses a problem, I explained I would need to get something that I could at least be seated for most of the day as to not hurt my back any more than it is.
I told her about my accident and she was shocked. I of coarse made everything positive "Everything happens for a reason, blah, blah, I look as my glass half full because I could be worse off, blah, blah"

She told me she liked my attitude.
And guess what?
She leaves for vacation tomorrow. Yep just my luck.
She said she would make sure someone else was looking for a job for me while she was gone. So we will see how it goes.

Monday I start to pound the pavement and spend the day "networking" and applying everywhere I can.

What fun!

I am so sick of this picture

Yes it was wrong and horrible and it makes me angry to see.
But do they have to lead of the news with it for 3 days in a row? I mean yes it was a mistake but lets be real the only reason she got caught was because she was famous. It scares me to think what would have happened if there was an accident.
But serious Loretta King Scott died, one of the most influential women in the civil rights movements and Britney gets more air time??
What is wrong with society?

The puppy is gone

Sniff sniff.
I had to bring her back this morning. As soon as the hubby left for work she started to cry and bark at the door as if he was coming back.
I tried to hold her and cuddle her but she was still fussy. It could be cause he let her in the bed with him for about 1/2 before he actually got out of bed.
She knew what was coming and fought me like crazy to try to put the leash on. I finally got her ready to go and then she would not get in the car, so bad so that she tried to put her paws on the frame and push away she was shaking like crazy. I took her for a walk when I got her back to Noras and held her, she was shaking like I was going to beat her. Poor thing.
I talked to Nora and she said Brandy (the dog)is totally house trained now. She goes out to pee now on her own and everything.
So one night peeing and pooping all over our place and she's trained.
I am going back over later to take her for a walk.

I almost killed us in our sleep

Being the great wife I am I get up (some days) to make the hubby a warm breakfast before work.
Yeah today I woke up and there was a funny smell in the house.
The gas was on.
No breakfast for him.

So Sad but puppy has to go

She's so cute though.
I tried to put her leash on her this morning to take her home. She's knows and refused to let me get her.
1am dog jumps in bed.
2am dog jumps in bed
3:50 am dog jumps into be and hubby says "Just leave her alone she'll go away"
This ensues licking and kicking and she was soon banished to the living room again.
6:15 alarm goes off and she jumps into bed.
6:20 she runs outta room and pees on the couch.
I'm going to be sneaky and get pee pads and see if she uses them.
Actually I can not even do that though...
I am so sad, even if I did the pee pads she's starting to bark and we are not aloud to have animals so it would be a mess anyways. I'd get all attached and then I would cry giving her back.
And now she won't even let me walk her cause she knows I need to take her home and shes not having it.
Poor thing

I kidnapped a puppy

she's a mutt And she's so cute. At first I was only going over there to take her for a walk. But before I did I needed to take her to Pet Smart to get some supplies. She picked out her own collar. Its purple and no its not cause it was MY favorite color, serious I held up 4 different ones that I liked and she grabbed the purple one so that's the one I went with, and then of coarse the leash. I was surprised that she walked so well on a leash. As first she put up a fight and would not move and then she realized I was going to leave without her so she follows.
Yes I talk to her like she's human.
Her name is Brandy. (my favorite cats name but I had to give the cat back) She was already named that so we just kept it.
The poor thing has been in 4 different homes already and she's only 2 1/2 months old. The sad thing is that the first people who had her used to kick her and she's really been traumatized by that. Whenever you walk passed her or if a you walk up to her too fast she pees. Its her defense mechanisms sort to speak. So needless to say its been an interesting day. I picked her up at about noon and after we got supplies I took her for about a 2 hour walk. She was so good. She knows to sit when I say wait, if there is traffic (it scares her so she sits to watch) I tell her stop and she sits.
All she needs it love. My mother-in-law has had her about 2 weeks but there is never anyone home over there so the dog is left alone all the time and is still not potty trained.
I though the hubby would freak cause I have been asking for a dog FOREVER he promises that as soon as we sign papers for a house that we can go strait from there to buy me a puppy.
He likes her and she seems to listen to both of us already. We have to break her from a few habits because when she was at Nora's (mother-in-law) they gave her the rule of the house and she peed and pooped everywhere (no one to really train her) and they also let her in the beds and on the couch.
In one day we have the peeing down to a science as soon as she wakes up from a nap she needs to go (I learned this the first time she peed) and then we left the screen door open and she went out by herself after watching her it was obvious she would not pee so I took her downstairs (she's afraid of the stairs too) and as soon as she was on grass she peed.

This happened 3 times then she pooped in the bedroom.
Its a lot of work so we will see how it goes.
We talked tonight before bed about if we are going to keep her (I love her already)
but there are so many factors about not keeping her. She's a mix and the Vet at Pet Smart said she'll be about 30 pounds so she will be too big for our place (its only a one bedroom) its big enough right now but she's going to be a bigger dog. Also the hubby brought up the fact that I will be going back to work soon so she'll be alone all day, we also travel a lot.
When we got into bed she jumped in and pretended like she was there all along she's so friggin cute.
tomorrow I am going to get her pee pads to train her with.
If we don't though she's only at the mom's so I can visit and take her for walks.
she's a mix between a golden retriever and a Dachshund.

I am headed out for a walk

So bored at home. Yesterday I went shopping to avert going to the gym. After 2 hours of being on my feet my back was killing me. I think I will be less aggressive with myself today and just go for a walk, after being on my feet for 2 hours there was no way I could get comfortable without pain when it was time for bed. You know what my hubby says when I get into bed with him now at 11pm. "Why are you bothering you know you are going to get out of bed in like 5 minutes anyways". He's right though, I lay there and try to sleep but my eyes are wide open and my mind is going a million miles a minute.
I did not finally get to sleep last night till about 5am, after fighting with the husband who can fall asleep standing up and because I am such a light sleeper (when I sleep) he gets loud in his sleep and it always wakes me up which makes sleeping even harder.
He suggested separate beds
My response?
"No WAY!" I would sleep less if I did not have him right next to me. And besides I did not get married to sleep in separate beds. And he gives off so much heat when I sleep that my body automatically trys to get closer to him when he sleeps. Sometimes I can fall asleep listening to him breath.
I think I am going to go to my mother-in-laws and take her new puppy for a walk. The poor thing is left in a pen outside all day and never gets to go for a walk.

I am so going to order this T-Shirt

So I was perusing through the vast amount of blogs I love to read and I found a link to this t-shirt company, when I learn how to add links I will post the link to the site.
I am ordering this t-shirt that says

I publish intimate details of my life on the internet and I don't know why.

Its funny you have to admit.
New word in heaving rotation: Perusing

Computer withdrawal

The hubby took the computer to school tonight so I was left alone to Tuesday night TV. Funny thing was it felt so strange not to be perusing the internet. I felt like I limb was missing, every time I looked up I was expecting to see the glow and hum of the computer sitting on the table. The spot was empty. It was weird. I have fun reading about the glamorous lives of the internet world.

Finding Nemo

First I gasped then I laughed. And yes I like Nemo and Sushi

Monday, February 06, 2006

Today was a great day!

So as you all have read I have been told that it's ok to start to look for a new job.
(A little back story I was injured and work almost a year ago and the final doctor has ruled that there is no way that I can go back to my previous position)

Soooo that leaves me in the market of looking for a new job. Well things are looking up I hope, I have already secured a job with Century 21 as a Real Estate Agent (as soon as I get my license) but of coarse that takes time.
And I have an interview this Friday at a VERY LARGE CABLE company in there call center. And before everyone who knows me goes "WHAT SHE"S GOING BACK TO A CALL CENTER!" because as you all know I already committed 3 years to a Cable Call Center and at the end, actually most of the time I really hated it, but I have to go with what I know. I have so much experience in customer service within the call center that I would be crazy not to pursue it. And money talks with the experience I have it would not be entry level. And if it was? Well I would need to decline the offer. With my back being messed up like it is I can not stay in the field I was in AND LOVED. SO I need to get something where I can be sitting for most of the day.
And plan 2 is I have an exam with the County working at city hall on Monday as a customer care representative. Soooo hopefully I will be back to work soon.

Oh and also I am being shipped off again with the Red Cross to complete another tour of duty for hurricane Katrina as of after my interview on Monday. I am going to go this time without the husband so I can find a bit of myself. They mentioned sending me to either New Orleans or Washington? Not sure what I would be doing but that's the way the Red Cross works.
I need to do this for me to refresh my head before I go back to work.

And also starting in March I will be going to local schools to do presentations on behalf of the Red Cross about disaster preparedness. It's been a long time since I have had to speak in front of large groups but I think its a great opportunity for me. It's totally something I am into and believe in. I am a little worried about public speaking in front of THOUSANDS of kids but I love kids and there honesty, it should be quite interesting so I will keep you posted.

Red Light Camera's cont'd...

The cost for running a red light and getting caught on camera...
Drum role please.....


Friggin hell. Serious when it first came in we thought maybe $50-$80 bucks but $361!!!
Needless to say hubby will pay extra attention to red lights from here out.

I suppose the cost of this ticket will help to pave the roads and fluff up the pockets of the dirty president.

The funny thing about the "caught in the act picture" was there were 3 other people running the light as well 4x$361 = $1444 ON ONE RED LIGHT!

The government is racking in the cash with these new cameras. Not to mention the court system of all the people who are dumb enough to try to fight the tickets and all the people who pay late...
The government is laughing all the way to the bank!

Women can be evil

I just got off the phone with my brother. Poor thing. He's been dating this girl for 3 years. She just happens to be married. No it's not what you think, when they met she was legally separated from her husband for over 3 years when they met. Well my brother and her dated for 2 years moved in together and everything. Well a year ago the "ex" came back into the picture he wanted her back ect. So because she never finalized the divorce she went back to him...Well sort of. She still lived with my brother and told her "husband" that they broke up.
Well now its been a year of her telling my brother that she loves him and she's going to leave her husband (her husband makes lots of money and spoils her) and she still lives with my brother without her husband knowing??? I know messed up, anyways her husband just sent her to Cancun for 2 weeks with her girlfriends ( the husband paid for the trip for all the girls to go) and my brother is sitting back at home and has (hopefully) decided to move his shit out.
See he's so torn cause she's been playing him for over a year and because my brother does not make a lot of money (he's a firefighter) the husband has been paying all her bills which has left him feeling like less of a man.
I tried to talk sense into him, because any women that would do this and carry on for a year is evil. Anyways I talked as best as I could but you know how it goes with brother sister talks. I told him he needs to give her an ultimatum either she stays married or stays with my brother and files for divorce. I hope he heeds my advice.
I wish I had the cash and I would send him a ticket to come visit so when she gets home all his stuff is gone and he's out of the country.

A soldiers Last Letter- Daniel Clay

I am not sure if you saw the The State of The Union Address? Anyways this was a soldiers letter to his family if he was killed in Action, parts of it were quoted by President Bush in the address.
He was so brave and this made me cry. What a sacrific his family gave to America.

MOM, DAD, KRISTIE, JODIE, KIMBERLY, ROBERT, KATY, RICHARD, AND MY LISA: Boy do I love each and every one of you. This letter being read means that I have been deemed worthy of being with Christ. With MaMa Jo, MaMa Clay, Jennifer ..... all those we have been without for our time during the race. This is not a bad thing. It is what we hope for. The secret it out. He lives and His promises are real! It is not faith that supports this ..... But fact and I now am a part of the promise. Here is notice! Wake up! All that we hope for is Real. Not a hope. But Real.

But here is something tangible. What we have done in Iraq is worth any sacrifice. Why? Because it was our duty. That sounds simple. But all of us have a duty. Duty is defined as a God given task. Without duty life is worthless. It holds no type of fulfillment. The simple fact that our bodies are built for work has to lead us to the conclusion that God (who made us) put us together to do His work. His work is different for each of us. Mom, yours was to be the glue of our family, to be a pillar for those women (all women around you), Dad, yours was to train and build us (like a Platoon Sgt) to better serve Him. Kristie, Kim, Katy you are the five team leaders who support your Squad ldrs, Jodie, Robert and Richard. Lisa you too. You are my XO and you did a hell of a job. You all have your duties. Be thankful that God in His wisdom gives us work. Mine was to ensure that you did not have to experience what it takes to protect what we have as a family. This I am so thankful for. I know what honor is. It is not a word to be thrown around. It has been an Honor to protect and serve all of you. I faced death with the secure knowledge that you would not have to. This is as close to Christ-like I can be. That emulation is where all honor lies. I thank you for making it worthwhile.

As a Marine this is not the last Chapter. I have the privilege of being one who has finished the race. I have been in the company of heroes. I now am counted among them. Never falter! Don't hesitate to honor and support those of us who have the honor of protecting that which is worth protecting.

Now here are my final wishes. Do not cry! To do so is to not realize what we have placed all our hope and faith in. We should not fear. We should not be sad. Be thankful. Be so thankful. All we hoped for is true. Celebrate! My race is over, my time in war zone is over. My trials are done. A short time separates all of us from His reality. So laugh. Enjoy the moments and your duty. God is wonderful.

I love each and every one of you.

Weird stuff

For some reason I have lost the last 3 posts. Has anyone else had this problem?
So Weird. They were there and now they are gone?

Anyways to sum up the ones that were lost.

I was in a funk. I am done with it now.

I watched this show on NBC about child predators. It was crazy and made me really angry!

Thats all I have to say about the 3 posts that were lost.


My fun weekend

I went out twice this weekend which is a record breaker since I have been in California.
Saturday night the hubby and I met up with the brother in law and his new girlfriend for dinner. It was nice, mother in law and her boyfriend also joined us. Turns out BIL girlfriend is from Iowa and was only down for 4 days and this is the first time we all got to met her. He's been out to Iowa 2 times now so it was nice to finally put a name to the face. He's smitten and I think they will be married by the summer. If not married I think they will at least be engaged. This is the first time I have seen him with a girlfriend so it was kidda entertaining.
The food was FANTASTIC and so were the drinks we went to The Elephant Bar it's a really nice place very safari like. The hubby drove so I got to drink 3 drinks and I was 2 sheets to the wind. It was fun.
Superbowl Sunday we went to a friends house for a superbowl party. The hubbies night to drink so we took my car. There were a few people there and I got coerced into playing this game called Apples and Apples, its a funny game if you ever get a chance to play it I would recommend it. It would have been better if it was a drinking game.
The hubby got drunk and I drove like a bat outta hell to get home so we would not miss Grey's Anatomy.

We missed it.

They failed to mention that it would not be on at the regular scheduled time.
I hope they re-run it next week.
It was nice to socialize again. Its almost like I forgot.
But nope I still have it......(and I am modest too)
