Let's see, who wants to hear about all the stuff I got for Christmas?? Anyone? Well, I'll tell you anyways, I got a book about birds, one of those Audubon Field guides, I love those books, plus I like birds so its cool. And I got a flash drive (because I LOVE them), a star necklace that it very pretty, I got this handy dandy labeler thing, that once I have some time I'm going to label everything! I got 2 little cases that will hold my flash drives, I didn't even know they made stuff like that! I got some body wash, socks, binders, a WILD shot glass, and 2 Old Navy gift cards, they have the best tank tops in the summer and I LOVE tank tops! And my crocs. I'm trying to think if there is anything else..Then I got some other stuff that was in my stocking, post-its, some socks, lip balm, a cool little brush and a nail file.
I'm not sure what is going on for New Years..maybe nothing, maybe if it isn't too cold we'll go ice skating or something. Who knows. Well, I guess that's all I have and since I'm a dill hole I don't have any pictures because I forgot to put them on the flash drive so that I could post them..Hope everyone has a safe and fun New Years!

This week is a full one for parties and free meals, tomorrow we are having a ham at work, its like a potluck/pay if you aren't bringing kind of thing. We had on last year and it wasn't as big as we would have liked but this year a lot of people have signed up to bring stuff so I hope it will be good. I'm not a huge ham fan but last year it was yummy! Then on Friday we are having a "Thank You" lunch, who knows why but that will be catered so it should be good, plus we might all get to leave early, which is always a plus. Then on Saturday is the work Christmas party. Which is kind of a joke because I wasn't actually invited to the party even though I work here!!! So I'm going as my Mom's date. Haha, I'm going anyways, stupid heads! but I did find out that I have 80 hours of paid vacation that I didn't even know I had. Now when I take days off I'll actually get paid for them! Woo Hoo! Well, I guess I don't have anything else to write about. See ya'll on the flipside!

But the new skates, still in the box, are hockey skates so maybe I won't have the wobbly ankles I hated so much.. It will still be cold but this time I will have the B/F to hold on to me so I don't break my wrist or something, not that I would care so much if I did. Any reason to not come to work is OK with me.. Isn't that sad!
As far as projects, I don't have anything going on right now, mainly because its been snowing on all the days that I would be able to get out and pick stuff up. However, I am going to decorate some bell ornaments, I'm going to put names on them, since they are all sold out of the "pre-made" ones at the craft store. I mean I can write names on a bell, how freakin' hard is that? Note that if the next post I'm bitching about writing names on bells, it is indeed that hard! I'm pretty patient though, I can stick with something even if I'm having a hard time making it work or getting it figured out, a lot of times I'm "winging" it to some degree so that makes it a little harder, but at the same time makes it more fun. I like to have a plan for things, but sometimes with some things I'm OK with not knowing how it's going to turn out or how it's going to go.
It feels good to just let go and not think or worry. I think that's why I had so much fun at the hockey game last week. I laughed and had an awesome time, I didn't care that it was COLD and we wandered around St. Paul looking for the restaurant. I didn't work myself up about what was going to happen or what time we were leaving or when we couldn't figure out how the hell we were supposed to get into the parking ramp that our pass was for. It felt really good to just have fun!
Sometimes with stuff like that I freak myself out and get all full of anxiety and then feel like crap half the time I'm out so it makes it hard to even have a half way fun time. It hasn't been that bad in a long time, so that's good but it just sucks sometimes..Like you aren't really even in control of your own body. Its hard to explain but its just stupid.
Wow, I guess I had a lot of things to say today.. But on a totally different note yesterday when Mom and I went to lunch we got some cool icicle lights, they have a plastic icicle around the light and they change between white and blue AND they are LED lights, and they really don't get hot! I put them across the big window in the living room. We also got these ones that look like branches with lights on them.. And either today (if it isn't snowing) or this weekend I am going to do something that we have never done at my house put lights up OUTSIDE! On the only bush that we have. I'm going to do blue and green and here is why: a few weeks ago, the police department went on TV (some reason that I can't remember) but they asked people to include blue lights in their displays to support law enforcement and to remember those that have died so I thought "why the hell not" So I'll try and get some pics of that(when it happens). Hope ya'll enjoyed my ramblings!

Saturday they were predicting a big snow storm, so Mom and I went shopping, I think that in MN when they are saying its going to snow 6-8 inches people feel the need to go out in it and drive around, doing exactly what they are telling you not to! It started snowing about 8:30 or 9:00 am and I didn't see a snow plow until later in the afternoon.. There were something like 800 accidents that day.
Sunday, B/F and I went to Wal-Mart which I was initially excited about but then, people drive stupid and act stupid and pretend that I don't exist and it pisses me off. So then I was just irritated with the whole thing. I don't really get Mad about anything, I just get irritated and then it just gets worse from there, until I have like 15 minutes of peace and then I am ok. But it was a needed trip, the B/F bought some winter boots! Pretty exciting shit around here. But we only got 5 inches of snow, and then on Sunday when Mom went out to shovel the driveway, which is really long and a lot of work, Brian the plow guy who saved our asses last year showed up and it took him about 5 minutes to do 3 hours worth of work. So that was cool that he remembered us! I hate shoveling and I usually don't have anything to do with it.
We took pictures at the hockey game but it was with my sister's camera so she has them all. I'll have to get them from her today when I do to babysit so I'll be able to post them tomorrow. Hope you all had a great weekend.

And the other I took of myself in my fancy new hat that I made. I've thought about making some more and donating them. The pattern is so simple and they seem to be warm and not to hole-y to let wind through. Maybe some little kid would like one or something. The picture of Owen in the star is funny because he is inside but wearing the scarf that I made him. He was wearing it when I got there, and then it kept coming off and he didn't want to wear it but still wanted to carry it around. He's so funny.
I did start another hat, its dark green with lighter, brighter green stripes. Its going to be the celery hat I think.. Let's see, I guess nothing else is new or exciting. We are doing a Toys for Tots drive at work and I'm thinking about getting some toys for that. I just need to figure out what to buy. I don't want to get all little kid toys, but don't really know what to get for the older ones. I guess they don't get as much stuff for teens, most likely because the little kid toys all have ages on them, so its easier. I don't mind spending a little time looking around. Have a great day everybody!

Thanksgiving was fine, there was just 4 of us but it was fine. We managed to break another shredder somehow yesterday so I had to return the one that I bought 2 weeks ago, that was fun...I did a little shopping, but not on Friday.. I felt like I should just because the news was talking about it and slamming me with so much information, but I resisted and stayed home. I don't really remember anything that I did besides doing a little shopping on Saturday... Sunday I made some Christmas ornaments, one with Owen picture in it and one with Dagwood's.. Ohh, and I made a hat. I have pictures of all this but I really don't feel like getting the camera out and the USB and DLing them so maybe I will do it tomorrow..
This week is going to be fun! Because on Friday we are going to the WILD game, it will be a first for 2 of us. SO I hope they win and that its a good game. I'm going to record it so that I can see if we make it on TV! That would be cool! Other than that I don't have anything else going on this week, besides bowling..I think. I'm never sure when its my turn to bowl. I'm trying to slowly get my Christmas shopping done, I don't have very many to buy for so I never get stressed out or anything. I just have Owen and Mitch, the two little guys, Mom, Sister, BIL, B/F, and my uncle.. And I have some stuff for the little ones already, B/F got his hockey ticket so now its just the other peeps. The scary thing is that its only 4 weeks until Christmas! Where does the time go? It just seems to slip away, it seems like just a few days ago it was my birthday, and just a few days before that it was Owen's birthday..Those things happened months ago..
Well, I have some work to get done, so I hope that everyone had a great Turkey Day. I'll see ya'll later!
Monday, November 19, 2007
Saturday B/F and I went to the Mall and I did some early Christmas shopping, even though I declared a few weekends ago that I was shopping online for everyone. That way I wouldn't have to deal with stupid heads. Then on Sunday I was very sleepy and I did laundry and slept on the couch in between. I did finally get up around 2pm and got in the shower. SO it was pretty uneventful, but that's Ok. I feel much better today, just a lingering cough and feeling dry, but it's really dry at work so I try to keep up on the water.
This week is a short week and I love that. I have some wacky hours this week since people are gone so tomorrow I get to come in late and stay late, and Weds I have to come in brite and early at 7, but then I'm going to try and leave early.. But then its Turkey Day and I love T.D. Maybe its all the preparing (which I don't have to do ALOT) or maybe its just because the house gets all warm and smells like turkey.. hmmmm..turkey day.. Its different now than it was when I was a kid, the entire family doesn't get together anymore, and Gram and Gramp aren't around and stuff like that but I still like it. Even though this year it will just be Me, Mom, Uncle, and B/F if he decides to show up. I guess I'm not sure why he doesn't want to stay with his family because this year his sister and her clan are not going out of town. This will be the first holiday that his nephew has spent with thier family)he's 2 1/2, they usually go out of town. But anyways. I could probably ramble all afternoon about misc crap. But I'm going to go eat lunch. 11 days until I get to see my MN WILD play. Whoo HOo.. Ya'll have a great munday (like mundane) :P

I'm pretty proud of myself this week because I have been early to work 2 days! I'm still not caught up from Monday but I'm planning on getting it all done before I leave today. Later on I'm going over to my sister's to make a hand turkey with Owen because they will be gone over Thanksgiving. Last year we made a hand turkey and he was only 6 months old, so somehow my sister traced his hand.. This year I am anticipating that I will have to trace my hand a few times before he lets me do his..I am interested to see how much bigger his hand is than it was last year, they seem so itty bitty now, but I'm sure its huge compared to last year. But there will be two of us there so we should be able to, how you say "git-r-done"! We are also going to glitter snowflakes. I'm not sure what all is included in that but she asked and I said "sure".
Well, like I mentioned earlier in the week I am taking tomorrow off. I have high hopes for getting things done. I have a lot of old junk, like bills, pay stubs, info and miscellaneous crap like that.. I was never sure what to keep, how long to keep it and such so I just kept it all..And I'd really like to get it organized or at least have less of it, so I'm hoping that I can get some of that done. I'd also like to go over to the B/F's house and hang out with his nephew. He is older than Owen by about 9 months (and the only other small child I know) and it's fun to talk to him and see the words he can say and he likes to show off for me and acts "different" when I'm around. I'm not so sure what that means but that's what the B/F says..I don't really ever see him and I just think he's fun.
And I just want to say a big THANKS to Kim for telling me that I'm pretty :) And awwing over my nephew. And if you want to see more pics of him Kim you can hop on over to his mommy's blog. Let's see. I think that's all I have. I'm going to take some pics of the Adventures of the hand turkey.. I think I'm going to make my own this year..Maybe some funky paper and real feathers.. AND they have to have a googly eye..I love those things. So I hope that everyone has a great weekend.. And if you're looking for something to do, make a hand turkey!

s-n-o-w (pretend that I'm spelling it out) because Mom wouldn't like it if I was "saying" it. She no likey the snow! As for tomorrow I don't know what I'm going to do..
I have so many projects that I would like to make right now.. I'm working on two scarves, and I just started some boottie things for Owen.. And there are like 3 other things that I want to make. I think that I need to just start something and finish it before I move on to something else, other wise I get to the point where I have all these things going on and nothing gets done.. I'm guessing that when it gets colder out and I can't putz around outside then I will be able to get some things done (I hope). Now that I'm thinking about it maybe there are more things than that, argg! I'm just not going to think about it. And I'm feeling stupid because it was just Halloween and my almost favorite holiday is coming up which is Thanksgiving and I'm thinking about Christmas. Not like really thinking about it but just trying to see what's out there. I like Christmas, but its alot of work and it can be stressful. I try not to let it be, then it is no fun. Well, I think that I'm going to get back to "work". Which means that I'm going to sit around and try to look busy for an hour and a 1/2 until lunch! Ya'll have a great weekend!
Wednesday, October 31, 2007
Hmm, I guess its been awhile since I posted last so I'll do a re-cap. This weekend was very busy. I love having fun things to do on the weekends but it seemed to be non stop last weekend.. Friday night was pretty boring, B/F was helping his friend move and it ended up being an all day and night thing, which he hadn't really planned on, but he isn't the kind to just skip out on helping if there is no one else. So then Saturday before the bowl-a-thon, Mom and I went to Michael's and then to the grocery store, where I was invisible (but not dressed up like one) and almost got run over a bunch of times, stupid people! Then my sister called and wanted to know what we were up to and then she and Owen came over and we all played outside basically until it was time for Mom and I to leave for the bowl-a-thon at 5 pm. We had to drive to Eden Prairie (a long ass ways a way) and I fell asleep before we even got over by our work, which is like 15 minutes away. I can't stay awake in the car, plus I was tired! So, then we got there and we bowled and I had a 189 and a 148 games! That is better than what I bowl on Weds! But the most coolest thing is that they had a silent auction and some of the stuff was cool. But they had WILD tickets and I was so excited. Because I love <3 class="blsp-spelling-error" id="SPELLING_ERROR_5">whoo hoo! I was so excited. Mom bid on and won some stuff that was travel themed, its was a model car, 2 DVD box sets and 2 magnetic travel games. It was really fun but it was a long day. Sunday B/F and I went to the Mall of America and that was fun but I was tired and its such a huge place but they were having a "Canstruction" contest, teams were building sculptures out of cans of food and then afterwards all the food was being donated to a food shelf. I have pics of that but they are on B/F's cell because I didn't want to bring the camera with me. SO I'll post those when ever I get around to putting them on the laptop. So I guess thats all I have..I can't really think of anything else exciting.. Hope everyone has a great Halloween!

So today is Tuesday, nail clippin' and ball cleaning day. WHoo hoo. Both of which I do every week but forget until 10pm that they need to be done. So in case anyone wants to know, my huge blister is less huge but still bigger that I'd like it to be..But it doesn't hurt so thats good..right? Well, so far I've collected $20 for my bowling team, I'm thinking that I might bring it with me to the bowling alley tomorrow and work it..I mean the worst thing that will happen will be people telling me to "F" off. I'm ok with that. Let's see.. I could give a weekend re-cap but it wasn't a very fun, it was pretty depressing so I don't feel like blogging about it. Maybe I'll post some pics tomorrow.. I have to go now :P

Let's see, I haven't had a garden update in a really long time.. After the hail I was pretty sure that my bean plants were goners but they weren't they recovered and produced many a yummy bean. On Tuesday I went out and picked 91 beans, that is the most this year.. I took a pic of them all but forgot my camera so I'll have to post it tomorrow. In addition to the 91 I picked there were 3 bags, plus I have given 2 bags to B/F's mom, she loves them. And I gave a bag to his sister. So we have plenty of beans for a while. My pumpkin survived the hail but I think that I planted it way to late, it got more babies on it and I was excited because I thought that they would turn into pumpkins, but they was just get yellow and die.. But its still growing out there. The peas were basically destroyed but it was kind of cool because some of the plant had pea pods on them and when the pod dried up the little peas inside there sprouted new plants.. I was really surprised. So, 1 out of 3 of the things I planted made it. SO next year I am not waiting until June to plant stuff...
On to sports junk, my hockey team the MN Wild won again last night, they are 3-0! So ya'll have a good day!

Before I post some pictures I just have one question...why don't people turn on their headlights when its raining and dark out?? I mean really! So here is the circle blanket that I made for Dag It's green, purple, and blue with a purple fringe, which is more like a bunch of fingers..But that doesn't really matter...

1. I wish that I wasn't working here, and that I was doing something with my college degree... (this is sort of well known to some... but I'm puttin; it down)
2. I have an unnatural love for my flash drive..Its pretty blue light is blinking at me now, telling me thank you for saving loads of info and songs and programs on it and making if feel used! :P
3. I hate driving in the rain at night, and snow storms...
4. I always have my toenails painted, even in the winter..Because there is little difference in color between my nails and my toes so it looks totally creepy, like I don't have nails at all.. eeew!
5.I forget things alot. I have to make lots of lists and then I still forget things...
Well, that took me a while to write.. I'm glad it was only 5 and not more! I guess thats all I'm going to do for now. Ya'll have a nice nite
Friday, September 7, 2007
1. Why can't people use turn signals? Its it so hard to flip it on and flip it off? I mean its harder to make a call on a cell phone (which might be the reason for not using it in the first place) but really-
2. Stupid co-workers. This general category encompasses a number of common co- worker types. The "ass", this person is just an ass, not really mean, but just an ass. Like a 6th grader.. Most of these are specific to my own work place but could be stretched out to others as well.. The "little buddy" Gilligan, need I say more? Anyone else have one of these? "Turbo" a fat lesbo who does nothing but feels entitled to anything and everything.. The "little buddy" and the "turbo" get along pretty well but not with others.
OK, I think I'm done with that for now.. I guess I don't really have anything else.. Mainly because there is nothing going on. B/F and I are going promoting this weekend..I can't remember if I brought that up before but he is on a street team for a local record label and they have a new release coming out so we are going to go out and put up posters and flyers and take pictures and stuff, he's on the team and I'm not but I feel like I am, but it is kind of fun.. SO, ya'll have a nice weekend!

Stupid guy "well, how many bones are there?"
Stupid girl "well, I'm not sure but I think its like 500 something"
Me "are you kidding me" runs to co-worker and says .. "aren't there like 200 some bones in the body?"
co-worker "yea there's 206"
The stupid girl is fat so maybe she thinks she has extra bones in there holding the fat together..Well, thats all I have for today, I'll have to take a pic of the mushroom now thats its brown. Kepp it real!
Friday, August 24, 2007
We're going out to eat and stuff tomorrow so that's cool. Plus, its one more weekend that I don't have to work. WOOHOO! I guess I don't really have anything else to ramble about- I mean I'm sure I could but its not really worth it. So, I hope everyone has a good weekend, and be safe!
Monday, August 20, 2007
So, Mom wanted her foot in the pic and so I decided that it would be funny. She only has 4 painted nails! But in this picture are: 4 Compasses, 4 protractors (that are flexible, so cool), 4 more packs of pencils, 5 boxes of Crayola markers (that cost 25 cents each), 3 more packs of pens, 6 packs of high lighters, 6 prs of scissors, and 5 packs (15 total) pink pearl erasers (also 25 cents each). There was more stuff that I wanted but they were out of it all because the price was only 1 cent. And why don't they have a cent key on the computer? So, I've got a whole lotta stuff. If I can find the 1 cent stuff, I'd buy a bunch of that too. The kicker is that I went to the store 1 hour and 15 minutes after they opened, there had to be people waiting to get in or something! SO I guess that's really all I have for today. Ohh my MN Twins were awesome yesterday. Santana had 17 strikeouts, that was a new club record! Well, if I can get some pics of my car during lunch I'll be back to post them- Ya'll have a good day now, ya'hear!

These pictures are from my house, we got hit with a hail storm, notice the LARGE, Freakin' hail.. Well, we need a new roof, and I have hail damage on my little car-The first pic is in my back yard, its it a PILE of hail under the valley of the roof. It was like 2 feet deep- and it was cold! It was golf ball sized. It was the craziest thing I have ever seen in my life. It started out small, pea sized and just kept getting bigger and bigger.. Now I am faced with the challenges of getting my car fixed.. and I've never had to deal with something like this before, so its kind of hard. I just feel like I don't know what to do.. B/F's truck and his mom and dad's cars are all dented up also. Its just the craziest thing. I live a pretty smooth uneventful life for the most part, and I'm still just trying to ignore it all! I took some cool storm pictures a few days before all this crap, I will post them tomorrow. Our gardens are practically destroyed, but I'm hoping they come around. I can't bring myself to go look at the pumpkin again, but maybe tonight I will, it has a lot of broken leaves, but the main stem and everything looks pretty good..Well, that's all I have for today, or for now..
Tuesday, August 7, 2007
Ok, so this is a mushroom..Let me tell you the story. Friday night B/F and I ordered a pizza. Its a Philly Steak pizza and it has green peppers, onions, mushrooms and steak on it.. with some kind of white sauce or something, anyways, minus the mushrooms, and the onions I can see, its good. Well, I opened the box and this was looking at me, and I laughed and said "You have to come look at this mushroom". And I thought it was so funny. And I even kept it..Its in a ziploc in my fridge..staring at me when I go in the fridge...Even looking at it now, I'm laughing. Its so creepy looking...Moving on! Here is my daisy. Now, this is a gerbera daisy that we bought 2 or 3 years ago, I think they are supposed to die , but I've had luck with 2 of them.. This on I love, and I hope it never dies!What else, ooo, I have flowers and little tiny beans growing. I'm excited for them, they were so much fun last year. I would come home from work and pick 10, 20 or 30 beans every day. Its fun. I also have a bunch of peas. Now these..lemme tell you, first a bunch of them didn't come up, then some of them got eaten off..plus they are supposed to be a small variety that doesn't need a trellis (the ones I wanted got like 6 foot vines) well, no one told me they would need a stake or something. They are like a a cross between a vine, and bush.. because I didn't stake them so the grew about 6-7 inches then flopped over then grew up some more. Its like they can't support themselves. They are so crazy. But I'm trying to get them to grow up-right. Either way they are getting peas, so that's really the important part. This weekend was pretty nice, it rained most of the day on Saturday, but Mom and I moved the fence that is around the pumpkin, because it was trying to bust out! Hopefully, it will be happier now and have enough room , I mean they grow for another 2+ months. Well, I think that's all I have for you peoples today. Happy Tuesday!
