sleep

well last night i couldn't fall asleep for over an hour and a half and then when the alarm went off this morning at 10 i couldn't managet to wake up. i just woke up now. going back to work is going to be ROUGH.

Sunday, December 30, 2007

oh boy

i stayed up too late.
also why is it that every time i try to clean off my table it gets messier?
i just woke up from a nap. i was sitting there on the couch. i wasn't even lying down. dave said i was out maybe 45 minutes but i think it was longer than tha based on the current time and based on the time last things happened.

Saturday, December 29, 2007

no matter waht i do my digital picture frame is making me mad. it doesn't work right or how the directions say it should. then i got my spare sd card since it won't do a slide slow from my usb drive and well nothing i copy onto there shows up on the frame at all. i must be retarded.

Friday, December 28, 2007

sigh

i just vacuumed the main floor and then put the vacuum cleaner away so nicely only to realize i didn't vacuum the steps and they are the worst. our garland likes to shed "berries"
how can something be sealed in plastic and then still smell like smoke when i open it. it's a picture frame that we got as a gift that was in a smokers house.
i tried so hard to wake up at 10 today. i failed. i just finally got out of bed. for 20 minutes i was sitting up in bed. but for the rest of it i was fighting staying awake and failing.

Thursday, December 27, 2007

my thumb is sore and stiff from crocheting. i'd say i'm almost 30% of the way done with this afghan. i finished 1 skein. i have 3. perhaps i'll be 33% done and make the afghan shorter.
i thought last year was eventful. but i think this year was too. last year i started at Westinghouse and got engaged.

this year i got married and i put money down to build a house.

Wednesday, December 26, 2007

i think i ate too much stuffed* yesterday. last night my stomach was killing me and i kept thinking i was going to throw up.

*stuffed from stuffed cabbage. but i don't eat the cabbage.

today we tried to buy curtains. we failed.

then we tried to buy some Christmas trays on sale. we failed at that. but i did buy some Chrsitmas tins so now i don't have to ask for the tins back when i give people cookies with tins. we bought a container thing to put our wrapping paper in.

i tried to buy ingredients for pepperoni bread but the super walmart didn't have bread dough.

i tried to buy invitation envelopes (aka the envelopes that i use for the cards that I make) and i couldn't find them. this is my 3rd trip to walmart and they don't have them. maybe i'm looking in the wrong places or maybe they stopped carrying them.

last night i calculated it out and it'll take me over 40 hours to finish the baby afghan i'm making (for a baby shower i'm going to on January 13).

so Betsy's wedding got moved based on travel arrangaments and now it's not in Kenya and it's here in like 3 days. looks like her gift isn't going to get made. i thought i had until the end of january when they had a reception. now i'm all confused.

i have to clean up and i really want to make this place spotless and get rid of all the junk but it never works. i need more cupboards for food.

we saw the remodeled dunkin donuts on our way home today and i went and used my coupon and got munchkins. my bill was 5.88 and i had a 10 and a 1 and wanted a 5 and change back but the guy gives me bck my 1 and gives me 4 ones. i didn't tell him. i just let him go and think i was the stupid one. now i have about 8-10 ones in my wallet.

i bought masking tape today so when i pack a box or put Christmas stuff in a box i can label it. all our boxes have been labeled a few times so now i know the masking tape labeling will be the most current. all the rest are just sharpie on the box.

update: correction now i have 16 ones in my wallet. i guess i should have counted first but i didn't feel like giving the guy a lot of ones. sigh.

Tuesday, December 25, 2007

now i just woke up from a 3 hour nap.
we just spent 2 solid hours cleaning up and being productive. i ironed 8 shirts and 2 pairs of pants. a lot of what we cleaned was in the basement. we still have tons to go. and i mean tons.

Monday, December 24, 2007

the visit to dave's family was a lot better this year. but i still hate hate hate coming home and having every single thing we took smelling like smoke. i need to remember to wear an old coat. i'm trying to air mine out right now. they didn't smoke around us and they think that solves the problems but when they smoke then come hug us or when they used to smoke in all the rooms and then they just stop when we visit the room still smells of smoke.

i had a fiasco with making pizzelles tonight

first i can't find the recipe from the box or gram's. i keep it all in the box so i was very upset. then i find the recipe on the floor. it must have flown out. then i get out the eggs (need to be room temp) and the butter. the butter has to be melted then cooled. then i leave that alone. i come back and get the rest of the ingredients out only to learn that we do not have enough flour.

but since i know gram doesn't really use a recipe i could make do. i had to kind of throw away an eggs wroth. i had all three eggs already in the mixing bowl. then i had to use less butter. it seems to be pretty good. i couldn't do like gram says and test the first one and add more flour if need be because i didn't have any. so i didn't get very many but it's enough to have like a dozen at my parents' house and then take a about 2 dozen to pb's family. i'm not even sure if my gram made any or not for this year.

oh i forgot. when i was trying to organize my bowl, the iron, and the cooling racks i burnt my fingers pretty good. they still hurt. it's been about an hour.

Sunday, December 16, 2007

house looking takes a lot of time.
it took me over an hour to fall asleep because of my cold feet. i kept trying to find dave's legs to warm my feet up but i couldn't even get through the covers to get to him.

dave went to sleep 5 or 6 hours before me and he's still asleep.

Saturday, December 15, 2007

i stayed up too late cross stitching. i also think it's bad that my feet are numb from being cold.

cookies 'n 'at

i made peanut butter fudge today because it's quick. i'm so behind on the cookies. i dont think i'm actually going to get them in. then this morning i get an im saying that dave's dad is having a birthday party on december 23 and can we be in town for that.

i think i'll make pizzelles since they are also easy and maybe call it quits unless i have time for sure. i'm not making candies. this year my cookie supply isn't very good.

but i'm not having a Christmas party. i'm sad. i didn't have time to plan one. but at least then i don't need as many cookies.

i should look in the freezer. i think i have 4 containers of cookies (some are small). to jog my memory of what i actually made. i think no-bakes, chocolate chip, and outmeal raison. then i have a small container of peanut butter balls/buckeyes that i never took out of the freezer when i had the wedding. i know i should make peanut butter cookies but i don't have the hershey kisses here so maybe i'll do regular ones or just forget about them this year.

finally

we finally went grocery shopping. we spent 120. i dont think we bought much meal food though. we also spent over 100 today at sam's club.

Thursday, December 13, 2007

i'm tired. my head hurts. my throat hurts. i only sneeze sometimes. i'm going to sleep. i slept 12 hours last night.

Sunday, December 9, 2007

to do list for today

how many of these things will i get done?
1. laundry. 1 load is in the wash. i'll have at least 3 loads to do it all. the 1 hamper weighed 32 lbs
2. clean up
3. set up to take the Christmas picture then take it (have to move some ornaments to the other garland since that is the one we're taking the pictures by.)
4. make cookies
5. go grocery shopping
6. go to target
7. make more Christmas cards

I've already spent 4 hours making cards and i have 10 made. i sent 39 cards last year and this year i have more than I want to send. maybe i'll find my store bought cards and use those but i have no idea where they are)
10.carry all my stamping stuff upstairs and put it back on the shelves.


already went to the gym

Saturday, December 8, 2007

we went to grove city today. it was exhausting. it was really busy. it took way too long to get around to all the stores.

Thursday, December 6, 2007

it's too cold in here.

i have a headache and i keep getting foot cramps. i'm supposed to be drinking lots of fluids. i drank 8 oz total today.

i donated blood today.

i'm skipping the gym today.

i am so tired. i think i'm going to attempt to go to sleep now. i've been so tired all week.

Wednesday, December 5, 2007

some friends came over tonight ot make cards. it was fun times.

Tuesday, December 4, 2007

Monday, December 3, 2007

so i wanted to be mean in an e-mail but sound like i'm not being mean and pb said most people just do that and it's not a big accomplishment. i think i failed though.

Sunday, December 2, 2007

i went ot the gym 3 days in a row.

may i'll look good for Christmas instead of looking gutty like I did at Thanksgiving. I have no self control with frozen no-bake cookies.

Saturday, December 1, 2007

here it is

the skirt that I wore tonight:

it took a lot of figuring for what shirt to wear. i wanted to wear a button down shirt but if it was untucked then it covered the waist band and if it was tucked in then my waist was entire too high (even though that's where my waist is. i'm too short waisted for it to look good)

my clothes and the party

we had our work christmas party. we got free beer. but no other booze. we do an elephant gift exchange .i ended up with a clock. i brought my tic tac toe drinking game. people liked that. it kept getting stolen. i knew it would go over well with the drunkards. i didn't' expect people to actually get drunk. then we ended up with 2 more gifts because one guy didn't want 13 bobble heads. and craig was nice and gave us the electric screwdriver that he got. and pb also ended up with 3 boxes of chocolate. the chocolates were our gift from sue this year.

i wanted to wear something i can't or don't wear to work and it was buisness casual attire. i wore a short skirt. i'll post a pic later. well i sure looked pretty in my nice outfit. but a short-ish skirt and drunkards don't go well together. i got embarrassed. one guy at the group christmas party kept making remarks about my skirt and how i should be vana white (when we were doing the gift exchange) and even commented on it again later. i can't even believe the drunkards. girls complimented me on my nice outfit. i actually only wore a skirt because haley said she was and i couldnt be outdone by her because jason has pics of her up at work and people think she is all hot. well i won. she did not look good.

weekly update since i'm a posting slacker

Tuesday I went to Joe Mama's in Oakland to meet my mentee from CMU.
Wednesday I went to dinner for gram's birthday. it took an hour to get to mckeesport because of a stupid car accident. then we went to my aunt's and had cake. my aunt told my uncle to buy a red cake. she meant red devil's food. he got yellow cake with red icing. it was a funny looking cake. then i headed home so stacey could come over to stamp. she was supposed to come at 6:30. but i had to change because of the impromptu birthday dinner.
Thursday we went to Johnny Carino's and went to Target after. We bought some Christmas decorations and I got a nice new coat.
Today I napped on the office floor while Dave was reading his e-mails before we would watch TV. then we watched TV and ate, and i've watched more TV. then we went to the deauville park gym. and i've been watching taped TV through my computer ever since.

Monday, November 26, 2007

how about that steeler game? i saw maybe 5 min of it. 1 min here. it was boring. turned it off. then watched 45 min of a show and then turned on the game. boring again. then another show. then show is over and i watch teh rest of the game.

how about that game causing me to miss dancing with the stars.

wedding pictures

i did some fancy photo editing to 14 pictures in 3 hours. and all of the editing wasn't fancy. some of it was only changing color to black and white. i still didn't figure out how to do what i wanted to do. i did some weird things that i don't think will turn out right when printed. we will see. this is a step in the right direction to making a wedding album.

Friday, November 23, 2007

i get up from the chair after eating a snack
pb: goosey your pants are unbuttoned
me: well i had to so i could eat more.

Thursday, November 22, 2007

i hate when there are too many choices. it just makes it too hard to decide.
we at a big meal at 1 but my big meal isn't as big as everyone elses. so i ate again at 5. then i took a 2 hour nap.

mike gained 7.5 lbs from lunch, timmy gained 5.5. and dave y gained 3. i didn't do a premeal weight at home so i couldn't tell for sure what the meal weight gain was.

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

i just sent my dad an e-mail asking him if he'd make me a shelf like this for Christmas. i said i'd help. he has a saw. that's really all i need him for. but it'd be nice if he bought the wood too. note the comment that her husband made it for her. i told dave this and he said he can't make things like that. it involes stainine or painting and that's too much for him...he could do it.
my weight graph is updated and i'm in the process of updating my calendar site. i'm almost done with july. i'm a little behind.
tonight i ate the last 8 nobake cookies out of the upstairs freezer.

Sunday, November 18, 2007

these no-bake cookies are going to make me so fat. i just keep eating them out of the freezer. i hope i don't have to make another batch before Christmas because I ate them all.

Saturday, November 17, 2007

this morning

this morning i decided to clean. i got the bathroom upstairs cleaned and both sinks. th en i went downstairs and did a little to cleaning the living room dining room. i didn't vacuum yet. then i decided to make no-bake cookies for Christmas since i ate all the tones already for Christmas that i had made a few weeks ago. i kept making them too big today. i'm so mad. they are too big they don't look nice. then i thought i could make peanut butter fudge. but the marshmallow cream was a partial container so i couldn. then i thought i'd make lunch and while deciding what to make i realized i had gotten out all the ingredients for oatmeal raisin cookies. it took me until I was getting out the mixer to realize. so then i made a double recipe of that. i'm starving now and a little lightheaded. time to go make some angel hair. then i might clean up or i'll make a mess while scrapbooking.

Friday, November 16, 2007

Tuesday, November 13, 2007

my foot hurts so bad. my shoe wasn't nice to it today. mind you i've worn these shoes many times before. but then during the long walk to the car i really died. i think it took us 15 min to talk to the car because i had to walk so slow. it would have been a 10 min walk normally. the upper lot at work was totally full so we had to park in the back parking lot.

Sunday, November 11, 2007

dinner

so around dinner time i asked pb if he would cook dinner for me since i cooked breakfast for him (note last post)

he said he could type and order pizza via the computer for dinner if i wanted


he did more than that. he actually called on the real phone to order pizza from a new place. then he was giving our phone number. it took him 4 tries. i had no idea how or why he was messing up so much

breakfast

i made pancakes, bacon, eggs, and toast for breakfast today. dave didn't have any eggs. breakfast was at 2pm.

bacon and eggs on toast is wonderful
i slept more than 12 hours friday night and last night i slept over 10.

Saturday, November 10, 2007

Thursday, November 8, 2007

so most girls ask the guy if this or that makes them look fat. well dave just volunteers this information. then today he said "i know why it makes you look fat, because you are fat.

Tuesday, November 6, 2007

i'm so tired but really i have a lot of stuff i want to get done to better prepare.

Introduce a girl to engineering day and a stampin up workshop.

Sunday, November 4, 2007

i stayed up way too late.
pb wanted chocolate chip cookies so i made some. last tray is still in the oven.

i don't like making cookies. but i love making them. but i don't like that they don't get eaten. i don't really eat any. pb eats like 3 and if i don't give the rest away right away they go to waste. well this time i'm freezing a container full for christmas so then i don't have to make chocolate chip cookies if i don't want.

Saturday, November 3, 2007

today i recognized my dad from the front windows of a store. his coat gave him away. they were in some furniture place at the mall. i was coming out of the mall after exchanging a stupid necklace and on my way to johnny carino's. then they joined us for dinner.

Thursday, November 1, 2007

pants

they are hemmed. halfway through hemming them, i decided to look up on the internet how to do it. i did it all wrong. there are like 8 billion steps. i did 2. one i should have probably done was try on the pants and eye up how short they should be. oh well. i dont think i did the stiches right either. i also did not remove the old hem or trim the fabric.
i'm finally hemming my pants. i'm hemming them 2 3/4" ...do you believe that. well the inseam was 38.5 inches. i guess still is. i did iron up where i want the hem though. i dont knwo how to hem. i never did it before. i hope it goes well.
i thought i got home late on monday when i didn't get home until 9:30. but i went grocery shopping then. today i got home at 9.

Wednesday, October 31, 2007

haha

I just got an e-mail with the subject "How much do you like your friends?" I found that comical.

allergy shots

my allergy shots always make my arms so itchy. i just noticed now that when i just scratched my arm i ended up taking off 3 scabs from previous shots. my arms look awful. good thing it's long sleeve weather so nobody sees.
i just looked down at my desk and there are 3 cordless phones on it. one plugged in and 2 i carried from somewhere else in the house. that makes 4 phones right now in this little room.

Tuesday, October 30, 2007

so yesterday i mailed my parents a thank you card for helping us move furniture and get gram's recliner and rearrange furniture. today my mom got it. then she took it to dinner and showed it to my 2nd grade teacher.
today we left work kind of early. we were gone too long last night. i'm ready for bed already.

we left work a little after 4:30. got home 4:45 and i cooked. then that was done at 5:45. now mind you some of the sauce was frozen and i had it thawed so i didn't have to cut up the sausage or chicken. i forgot about the garlic bread in the oven. it was solid black when i remembered. i made skilletini and fresh steamed green beans with butter for dave and regular angel hair and sauce for me. but the pepper or spices or whatever i used made the sauce so hot that i had to stop eating before i was full. my mouth burned so much.

i've gained a few lbs lately. i ate 5 no bake cookies for my dessert today. i ate 3 w/ my lunch.

Monday, October 29, 2007

Monday

I woke up at about 8 today. i got to work at 8:35. i had a club type meeting during lunch. i left at 4:45 to get an allergy shot. i returned to work at 5:30 and worked until 7:32. then went to Kenny Ross and dropped dave's car off. Then we went to Taco Bell ate quickly and went to giant eagle. We went to the North Huntingdon Giant Eagle. Then we came home and got here at 9:40pm. long day. now time to do 8 billion things from my to do list.

we spent 80 bucks at giant eagle. we got barely any food. we really only have enough food for 1 meal..spaghetti. i did buy some spices but i didn't buy the chicken or whatever else we need.

last monday we spent 100 bucks at giant eagle. something is wrong here.

Sunday, October 28, 2007

Sunday

today we met with a lady from Heartland Homes. I didn't realize what incentives they give. They were giving some pretty nice ones that we coudl afford a way more expensive house. she said they give higher incentives at the end of hte months and each month the incentives change. then we went to the target and walmart in cranberry. they were very nice. i was surprsied that target had different and better stuff there. the walmart had all sane people. i didn't want to go home back to monroeville.

Saturday, October 27, 2007

somehow i think i should have eaten dinner already. also i should have taken the pumpkin pie out of the truck of dave's car.

today dave and i were both dead tired so we skipped westinghouse science honors institute but it was alright because we got an e-mail yesterday saying they were running it yesterday and didn't require our help but we could still go to see what it's like. so really it would have been stupid to go. then we went to sam's club for pumpkin pie and that was just a mess. 22 is awful. then we went to johnny carinos and the bookstore. then we came home and met my parents here. took the seats out of my dad's van and stuck them in our garage. then we went to gram's and got the recliner. and got the kitchen table. we did not take the dresser that we were thinking of taking originally. one drawer is broken. dave and i don't fix things so we figured it would stay broken forever so we aren't taking it. we removed the mirror before we decided against not taking it. then we came home and moved the recliner to the living room and moved the loveseat to the basement. then we rearranged. that was an ordeal. it's odd but interesting. i might be able to put my Christmas tree up now. i'll just have to leave off half of it and make it like a half tree at the bottom few rows. i shouldn't have purchased a 54 inch diameter tree. oh and during all this moving furniture we ended up making a mess just cleaning off the furniture and then my dad gets a bag and starts going through stuff to throw it away so i have to like follow him around and go through it myself for like 20 minutes. that was good though. newspapers on our table got thrown away finally. my dad always forces me to clean up when he's here. i didn't know they were going to do the chair today or i would have cleaned up first.

so

so i sent an e-mail to the friend who is the one who prompted me to make the post a little while ago about if i expect too much from my friends. i used to get 20+ e-mails from her a day and now i'm getting like 4 a week max and the ones i get are very very short. about as long as my last post. so last night i got up the nerve to e-mail her about this and ask if she meant to be pushing me away and how it was really bothering me. i sat there for like 20 minutes without sending it. i almost didn't send it at all. then i did send it... we'll see if i get a response. it's not that just fewer e-mails but there is no hanging out. she'd even ignore my questions and i never heard anything about her life. it was like they moved (and i helped for many hours) and then slowly she falls off the face of the earth. and it hurts. ugh

i need more friends that i'm close to so that when something happens with one then i might not notice or something.
last night i was dead dtired at 10pm but didn't go to sleep. then i got a second wind. i was so mad. then i stayed up entirely too late.

Friday, October 26, 2007

pb is ready for bed. it's not even 8 pm. he went to sleep at 8pm a few nights ago.

Wednesday, October 24, 2007

i'm not even tired. i have tons of stuff left on my to do list but i feel i should go to sleep now.

i watched 3 episodes of dancing with the stars tonight. the mythtv only keeps so many episodes so i missed an episode and just saw teh results show. i think i missed episode 6.



and i forgot to tpost this last night

i tried to go to sleep. it didn't work and also i had an awful time all night sleeping. i woek up about every half hour

Monday, October 22, 2007

do i expect too much out of my friends. i'm beginning to think i do. i don't think i expect that much thought. ugh
i am never going to giant eagle tonight. iv'e had bad experiences but they are nothing compared to tonight.

i was in liek for lunchmeat 20 minutes. i was waiting for the butcher for 8 minutes (maybe more. i didn't look at my watch right away). i waited in line for 32 minutes. there were only 3 people in front of me in line.

i guess i forgot to post that before

Sunday, October 21, 2007

pb had the windows opened last night and i had the worst time sleeping. aka the past hour i couldn't sleep and i kept sneezing and blowing my nose and it's still all stuffy

in one of my dreams, a dog died from eating chocolate. that was an awful dream.

Saturday, October 20, 2007

so there's this spot on my upper arm that i try to scratch and when i rub that area it sends shooting pains into my hand...like when you hit your funny bone. so theni tried my right arm. i can do the same thing. it doesn't hurt as bad though.

but i keep wanting to scratch my arm from my allrgy shot and then i keep sneding pains down my arm.

Friday, October 19, 2007

i've been so tired lately. i've been going to sleep so i coudl get about 9 hours of sleep. but i never do. i always wake up after about 4 hours and then keep waking up after that.

Wednesday, October 17, 2007

wvu != smart kids
tiring day.
probably talked to 100 people
probably talked to only 3 good candidates. i wanted to keep the one intern resume for sue. but then it got mixed in the pile with all the losers.

Tuesday, October 16, 2007

i'm so tired. so very tired.

i did not like my drive down here. i'm at the waterfront hotel now.

i'm scared i'll get lost going to the career fair tomorrow

Monday, October 15, 2007

hate

i hate when you type a bunch of stuff in an e-mail or aim chat and then get a repsonse to only one thing or get no response at all.......hate it hate it hate it
there are pros and cons of e-mail vs face to face talking.

one con is that the other person can ignore you :(

Sunday, October 14, 2007

pb's trying to freeze me out. he also switched our sides of the bed so now he's right by the window and thus his fan is too. it'll just blow the cool air in.
i started reading a book Wednesday. I finished it today. i read almost 300 of the 369 pages of the book today. this is why i never read. i can't handle stopping because i really want to know what happens next and the cliffhangers at the end of the chapters are awful.

so last week i got nothing done because i was working too much and now i got nothing done because i was reading too much.

bank experience

today i finally went to the bank. it's been between 3 and 4 weeks since i should have gone. i had to change the total on the deposit slip 4 times.

going into the bank i held the door for this old couple. they were shocked. they thanked me. and then since i held it for them they were ahead of me in line. (they kind of signaled for me to go but i signaled for them to go ahead of me). it made me feel so good. granted there was no line. i almost wished there was so i could have signed the checks. so i had to wait all of 30 seconds. they old couple got the last available teller.

Friday, October 12, 2007

Tuesday

i keep working too late so then i get home and don't do a single thing. tonight was no exception. i'm actually going into bed now. i'll read first.

tomorrow i'm helping with WSHI again. i have to be at STC at 8:00AM (my mom told me how that's called the R&D center)

my allergy shots like to give me big bumps on my arm and that bump is really itchy

Tuesday, October 9, 2007

Tuesday

i woke up early but dave kept trying to hold me up getting ready so i didnt' get ready too much quicker than him. we got to work at 8. had a less than half hour lunch and left at 6:45. got home made some tuna salad and started watching TV. 5 episodes later i'm here making this post.

Sunday, October 7, 2007

updates

i still have the hive/welt on my back from ragweed from the allergy testing

yesterday we gave jason the kitchen table from gram's house.

my foot hurts.

my knee has been hurting a lot lately.

it's raining and i didn't even realize it was supposed to rain.

i have so much to do but i always want to do other things.

i seem to like cooking and hate it at the same time. i like cooking for other people and then i hate it when they complain. i like trying to cook new things. i tend to not use recipes. i also give people food to take home. i make food and then call people and give it to them (that part is mianly with desserts). i guess all that is the italian in me. or every italian i know is like that. also i cook way too much food when i cook for other people. that is always how italians are. my brother thinks he has the perfect amount of leftovers when it just barely all fits in the fridge.

magic

my kybaord drawer now opens further than it's ever opened. it opens as far as it shoud. it kept slowing opening less and less than you didn't notice until it wouldn't come out at all. today i decided to give it a pull with 2 hands and it kept coming. purely amazing. now my desk doesnt suck so much.

i got allergy tested today. now i'm on more medicines and getting allergy shots. fun times. i am not allergic to dust. i am allergic to ragweed. i am allergic to a bunch of trees and a bunch of weeds. i am not allergic to mold, cats, or dogs.

Wednesday, October 3, 2007

today i spend forever making a dinner. then everyone is late. some people 20 minutes and one person was an hour late and dave thinks he only showed up after he yelled at him and said his plate was still out. i ran out of pasta.

dinner took me a solid 1.5 hours to prepare. i even cut the vegetables last night. dave did prep almost the entire time too.

it's not worth it. i get thanked but everyone is late. the last 2 times people were late and i have to call and call to try to see waht's up. i'm not inviting anyone over until i get invited there for dinner first.

Tuesday, October 2, 2007

today dave and i drove separately so i could work late. or so we said. well i stayed an hour late. i came home. i then went to giant eagle. then on my way home, dave called to say he was leaving work.
i cant' wait until thursday is over. i'm going to rub my eyes out. i'm going to rub wrinkles into my nose.

my knee hurts. it hurt and then i showed pb how my knee caps move and now i'm in severe pain here.

i went grocery shopping sunday and bought 1 meals worth and then odds and ends. 53 bucks. then today i went and bought 1 meals worth and odds and ends (but this time one fo the odds was an extra serving of chicken) and i spent 45 bucks. these odds and ends really add up yet they aren't any food at all.

Sunday, September 30, 2007

dinner was good tonight. dave loved it. he said it was the best thing we've made. i think because it was fresh in his mind it was the "best" but it was still good. skrat liked it too. he had 2nds and 3rds of things. we have no leftovers at all.
i need to bulk up. my sports sleeve for my ipod is about an inch too small.

pb got me this armband for my birthday

Saturday, September 29, 2007

timmy always wins telling me happy birthday.

i forgot i was going to eat less to hack my weight graph and make my brithday weight seem low and then i could tell people what i weighed on my birthday.

well i forgot and actually ate 3 meals today. that never happens
2 bowls of cinnamon toast crunch for breakfast, a hamburger, a cookie, a 1 oz bag of chips, 1 oz bag of pretzels, 1 oz bag of fritos, and 1 oz bag of cheetos (these may be 3/4 oz now because companies are cheap. i forget), and 2 glasses of pop for lunch, then for dinner i had cheese fries with ketchup, a ceasar salad but w/ ranch dressing, and a bowl of potato soup all from outback. i'm also ready to eat again.

dinner

we went to outback for dinner tonight. haley bought us our dinner. i think this was because i helped her move until the wee hours of the night. but then i saw her giving about a 12.5% tip so i snuck in my wallet and got out a 5. i sneekily put it in the check thingy while leaving. now teh waitress got a 20% tip. it was good service. we usually give beeen 18% and 20 but they usually give less than 15. i'm usually not good at being sneeky.

pretzels 'n 'at

i made chocolate covered pretzels. then i made peanut butter covered pretzels. then i made peanut butter covered pretzels that are also chocolate covered on half. then i put nuts on some. then i made some with chocolate drizzled on top of the peanut butter coating. a few i covered totally with peanut butter but when i went to cover the entire thing with chocolate then the peanut butter got too melty and it didn't work so wel. so then i just called 2 people to offer them some and neither were around. i'm quite disappointed about this.

oh i'm also disappointed that the bag of pretzels was mostly broken ones. so i have a ton of broken ones covered because i ran out of whole ones. i wanted dave to go get more pretzels but he wouldn't. i actualy still have broken ones left but broken ones aren't very pretty.
my knee hurts.

Friday, September 28, 2007

i worked 8 hours today and then spent 8.5 hours helping friends move. i'm tired beyond belief.

Wednesday, September 26, 2007

shoes

i bought shoes saturday. i wore them sunday and slightly scuffed them. tonight i wore them and i really scuffd the toe. i really have to learn how to walk.

Tuesday, September 25, 2007

i should probably go to sleep early.

i need someone to host a stampin' up party so i can demonstrate and don't have to deal with hosting it at the same time. anyone want t host one or know anyone that might?!

wedding RSVP

today my parents got a wedding RSVP. they had me guess who it was from. i couldn't guess.




It was timmy.

Sunday, September 23, 2007

music

pb was calling me. i didn't hear him because i was listenign to music. i almost thought i heard him calling and i took off the headphones and there was nothing. then a few seconds later he came into the room. he was shocked i was listening ot music and said he has to write this down.

so now it is written
today i went to joann fabrics and then michaels. neither had what i wanted. i had to go to pat catan's. they had what i wanted. they had 2 versions of what i wanted. time to try it out.

russ might like this story: so i own 4 cds. 3 of them timmy made for me. out of hte 3 timmy made for me 2 are scratched and songs skip on them and i just have to skip to the next song. so half my cds don't play properly.

today i realized (but i may have realized this before but forgot) that my jeans that got the hole/tear in them are in fact the newest jeans i have. they are from the gap. my other jeans are all from express. so does express make better clothes or did i like my gap jeans more and wear them more?

so i never got my form from the dmv to go get my picture taken for my new license. i have a week. i guess tomorrow i should call. ugh. i hope i don't forget.
i just made 2 christmas cards. it was fun.

Saturday, September 22, 2007

i went to bed at 7pm last night. well on the couch at 7. then at 8 pb woke me up to go upstairs. he was sleeping too. i was going to stay up. he said to go to sleep for the night. so we did. i woke up a zillion times in the night htough. it was hard sleeping through the night. then i was up at 7:30 this morning and out running at 8.

Thursday, September 20, 2007

my first stampin up party was good and also a wreck at the same time.

Tuesday, September 18, 2007

my life lately

i stay up too late. then i can't fall asleep in bed anyway. then i dont' sleep well and i wake up because my allergies are so bad. then i go to work an am extremely tired and i'm busy all day at work but things don't seem to go right and my files get corrupted and i go home an am exhausted but i have so much to do and then i want to watch tv. and then i have more to do and then it's late again. and repeat.

Tuesday!

today i thoguth ti twas thursday.

then after that i kept thinking tomorrow was thursday.

neither of which are true. yet i keep making the mistake over and over and over...

Monday, September 17, 2007

it's been over a month since i updated my weight graph.

i fell asleep in my computer chair and on the phoen today. then i got off the phone and slept in the chair and after a few minutes i realized that was stupid so i went an curled up in bed and slept. but dave kept talkign to me and telling me about when he was going ot wake me up and stuff so i didn't sleep that well then i went to sleep hardcore and he woke me up like 20 minutes later for dinner. i came and replied to e-mails first. i was such a horrible typer but i fixed most of it.

Sunday, September 16, 2007

the whole in my jeans is 3-4 inches long now. my toe got caught in the hole while putting them on today and made it bigger.

wow

so 2 years ago august someone i graduated high school with died in a car accident. this morning his brother died in a fire. at some point between 2 years ago and now the other brother almost died in a car accident. he was shot through the windshield of his truck and landed in a tree. they thought he would die. this seems to be a very unlucky family.

newspaper article

allergies

i couldn't sleep in today because my allergies were so bad. i can't breathe so i can't sleep. you know i always thought i slept with my mouth open well apparenty i don't and then i attempt to breathe through my nose. well when you cant' breathe through your nose it sure sucks. i take medicine and i'm still miserable.

Saturday, September 15, 2007

oh i forgot to mention. it's a wedding scrapbook. and everyone knows everyoen jacks up the prices by liek 400% for anything wedding related.

please respond with something

i've been asked to make a scrapbook for someone for money. they'd buy teh supplies but i'd pay for the pictures and then my labor. for 50 pages (25 fronts and 25 backs) how much do you think a scrapbook would be worth?
i just gave dave a haircut. i didn't finish cleaning up the hair yet but i'll get to that after i finish this card.
the hole in my jeans keps getting bigger. perhaps i should have hanged into other pants.

oh boy

so the jeans i wear every weekend possibly both day sand then if i change my clothes after work i put these one on about half the time finally wore out to the point of a hole. i've been showing people how thin the fabric was getting and how some of the threads were visibly breaking. well i just looked down and on my thigh there is asmall hole. it's almost like a slice and how the hole is. it will get bigger i guess maybe i should get new jeans soon. my jeans are from 2003 or 2004. i think these are my 2nd to newest pair.

Friday, September 14, 2007

so i changed my last name. this involves me getting new credit cards. well discovered spelled my middle name wrong on the new card. so i told them about it and they said they'd send a new card. i got the new card. middle name is still wrong.

should i just leave it alone?

stuff

i got a letter in the mail today from day chevrolet saying i was probably due for my 18,000 mile checkup. i find this funny since i'm only at 12,500.

tonight we watched 5 episodes of studio 60 and i finally got to relax. i just have so much to do it wasn't much of a relax but it was better than nothing.

i want to know why it takes from the 10th to the 14th for a package to go from new stanton to here. it shipped across country in 2 days and then it arrived at new stanton. it makes me mad.

Tuesday, September 11, 2007

Monday, September 10, 2007

my opinion

i think that if you receive an e-mail and do not respond to the person who sent it about the topic that was discussed that you do not have the right to talk about the topic with other people. even if you respond, you might not have the right to talk about it with other people. but if you can't even give the courtesy of replying to the person about it, that must mean it's not a worthy topic or why else would you not respond. things like this have made me mad. i've sent e-mails about a topic to person A. then person A does not respond to the e-mail or even with an acknowledgment and saying something that doesn't involve much thought but is a reply to the e-mail. then the next day i hear from person B about said e-mail. it makes me mad. so there was enough of a reaction to the e-mail to prompt discussion but this discussion was not with me. what was said. i dont know. do i want to know?0 yes. that is the whole point of sending the original e-mail. i dont just send e-mails with a story and with questions to not get anything in response. sometimes i even say that i expect to hear the persons reactions. i dont always get that.

more distractions

http://web.mac.com/colleenmccloskey

i am so busy yet i did this

hmmm http://web.mac.com/colleenmccloskey/Site/Blog/Entries/2007/9/8_Photo_of_the_Day.html

busy

shower then doing at least 5 things from my to do list. i miss things on my to do list that take 5 minutes. these things that take hours really bug me. i never get anything done. i need to start sleeping less than 7-8 hours. i seriously don't have enough time in the day. i don't know how to make it better. while i'm at work i just think about all the stuff i have to do at home. while i'm at home i think about all the stuff i should have done at work while i was thinking about all the stuff i had to do at home. it's a vicious cycle.

then i keep doing things at home that i kind of want to do and don't get the things done that need to be done.

sam's club

based on the size of my order, my 1 hour developing is going to take 3 hours.

this might be the last of the wedding pictures to print. these are almost all pre-photoshopped. i need to get rid of red eye. i need to crop. i will get to that eventually. i guess this way i'll have good copies in teh scrapbooks and i have have a generic photo album of all of these. these will be like the proofs i guess.

pictures

i'm uploading what i think is my last batch of pictures from my wedding. well my last batch pre-edited. then i'll go through and edit, do fancy things, and blow them up and print more to make like a real album

yay

i found my camera. i found it. yay yay yay

also when i open ijournal how do i get it to not be the mood and tags from the previous post.

Saturday, September 8, 2007

houses

we looked at some houses today. wexford has some nice ones.

so i was a little scared when i saw the hookers

today we tried to go to the waterfront. dave checked online and it said the parkway was open. it said only ramps were closed. well they were wrong. then they had detours labeled but apparenlty that was before and didn't account for teh parkway detour and then they quit labeling them. and so we messed up and there were no street signs. then it became the ghetto. then there was a gas station and there was a hooker at each pump. it was REALLY weird.

luckily we weren't shot and we made our way back and then went to the waterfront the back way. but then we got there and the movie sold out AS we were in line.

sigh

so in ijournal it uses awake instead of a blank mood. so i have to fill it out. also i can't figure out how to edit last entry on this thing. oh i found it.

camera

so i still can't find my camera

iJournal

I journaled this with iJournal.

Friday, September 7, 2007

i don't know how to do anything on a mac except the internet and that took some figuring.

some updates

i have a new computer. i dont know how to use it. i dont know where to start. i dont know how to install anything or use anything that it has on it. silly macs.

also i need a second mouse pad. ok i just stole dave's he's downstairs anyway.

in the same day i was told i was gettin fat and i was told i was looking skinnier. (2 different people)

we need to go grocery shopping and have food in this house.

i have so many things on my to do list. and these aren't simple tasks. they will take forever to do. grrr.


how much heat does a mac generate. it's really hot in this room.

if anyone knows anything about macs and would like to tell me anything at all even basic things that one should figure out by playing, you can go ahead and tell me. i'd like to hear it.

also i keep hitting the space bar when i don't mean it. i attempt to fix all the spaces but here and at work it is pretty annoying.

Thursday, September 6, 2007

Tuesday, September 4, 2007

i can't find my camera
i just woke up from a 2 hour nap. dave and i left work early. well we left after core hours ended so we didn't take sick time. then we came right home and went to sleep after taking medicine. now i have to eat some dinner.

Monday, September 3, 2007

allergies

my allergies are so bad. when i woke up, my nose was bloody. my nose is also raw. i can't find the vaseline (sp). i can't stop sneezing or blowing my nose. it's so awful. it's not fair.

Sunday, September 2, 2007

i just spent what feels like 20 minutes trying to get this huge sticker off of something i bought. then i even used goo gone. it's still sticky though.
sometimes people are rude and it bothers me. then i think about if i'm rude and nobody tells me. people should tell me if i'm rude. to set me straight.
i visited gram last night. it was fun. she liked the wedding pictures. i need to print them all and order them all and then go from there. i hate having them out of order and i also hate not having them all and some that i don't have printed are really good but if people look at a lot then they won't look again so they miss out on some good ones. maybe i'll put in an order before i go to pat catan's and giant eagle today.

Friday, August 31, 2007

i've become a posting slacker.

tonight i finally got to give my dad his birthday card. i told him he has to take it to work to display it.

we went to bubba darius for dinner. and bubba came out and asked us how things were and we told him how we love it and how we love the bread. then he came out with 3 loaves of bread for us to take. how nice. no charge for those.

Monday, August 27, 2007

oi

do i have enough time to go to sam's club and pick up my pictures and go to the social security office and do the whole name change thing tomorrow during my lunch hour?

nobody will probably read this before then.

then after work, we're going to the pirates game. i still have to make a few thank you cards and i have a lot to write. i wrote 5 tonight instead of going right to bed. but that took 45 minutes. i really don't understand it. i think i'm spending too much time making pretty cards. but it's so fun and addicting. but the cards get prettier so then the older ones seem uglier so i have to write and send before i make more or i'll never get rid of the sucky ones. i think i'm sending 45 or so homemade ones and then like 20 or so store bought ones.

Sunday, August 26, 2007

i was in bed for more than 2 hours last night before i fell asleep. it wasn't fun.
i have so many things i want to do and i can't decide where to start. so i decided to play sudoku instead of doing anything i need to do or want to do.
does someone want to go grocery shopping for me?

Thursday, August 23, 2007

today i left work early and took some vacation. it ended up sucking. like the worst vacation hours i ever used.

Tuesday, August 21, 2007

i was extremely tired at work today. i didn't get much work done because i was doing so much other stuff like trying to change my name on everything at work. then i got home and reheated the dinner and then i napped for 2 hours. i'm still a little bit tired.

Wedding Photos


http://picasaweb.google.com/ColleenCherepko/Wedding : pictures from the reception
http://picasaweb.google.com/ColleenCherepko/WeddingCeremony : pictures from the ceremony
i put my athletic pants in the dryer. i think they got 4 inches shorter.
today i left the garage door open when i left. sigh
i think i slept about 11 hours. i was so tired last night i forget what time it was. i ironed the new sheets and the bed skirt so they looked pretty, then put them on the bed then went right to sleep. it sure feels nice. except now i have so little time left in the day and so much i want to do.

Sunday, August 19, 2007

oh

my poor car. sad times. stupid garage door went on attack.
so tired

that is all
my feet have never been so sore. when i walk it feels like there's a ball under my foot but it's just my foot.

Friday, August 17, 2007

my brother, dad, and mom took pictures yesterday. i tried to get them printed today and walmart gave us trouble saying they wanted a release. they thought they were professional.

Tuesday, August 14, 2007

note to self: next time you make wrapping paper, don't use cardstock. just use regular paper.

Monday, August 13, 2007

pictures

i think i will use this now instead of the gallery i used to have.

Sunday, August 12, 2007

i forgot to mention that i went to sleep around 6:15am last night (this morning...). so i really did stay up too late. then i woke up at 11 when timmy called on the phone. i'm kind of tired now but i want to do some more stuff. well anything really. i haven't done much. i did watch 3 episodes of tv. maybe 4. been watching tv since dinner. earlier today i did some errands. i haven't liked any of the guest books i've seen at stores so i decided to just buy a scrapbook and make my own. i have to make the sheets now. i tried to find dave a silver tie but they didn't have solid colors this time at burlington coat factory.
i made a to do list of all i have to do in the next 2 days. oh boy. i also hav eto watch the season finale of jericho.

Saturday, August 11, 2007

i keep staying up too late. i'm addicted to making cards. it's better than scrapbooking but then i don't get to keep my work forever so then it's worse.

oh and last night i didn't end up going to sleep until 1am.

investigating

so today we got a wedding gift. it came in the mail from jcpenney. but then it didn't have any paperwork and only had the address label over the box like you'd buy in the store. i tried to find out online who it was from. that didn't work. but then finally i called and waited on hold for 10 minutes and learned. what an investigation

Friday, August 10, 2007

i'm so tired. i think it's bed time. last night bedtime was about 4am.

Wednesday, August 8, 2007

i won 3 ebay auctions in 24 hours. i lost a few too.

i decided i will be a stampin' up demonstrator. the problem is that i will need to find customers and people to host parties. any takers out there?

i'm getting fat. i told dave i was starting my after marriage weight gain early.

Tuesday, August 7, 2007

Monday, August 6, 2007

so i have 1 week to make chocolate chip cookies for the wedding. that seems like a lot of time but it's not. oh boy

ugh

i bought a new skirt Friday. i wore it today. the button just came off now.

Saturday, August 4, 2007

oh and today i had on shorts with pockets like in most girls things. almost nonexistant. well i had my camera in my front right pocket. i had to no smoking sheet in my left front pocket along with coins. i had my abridged version of my wallet in my back right pocket. in my back left i had my food tickets and my cell phone. then when dave showed up i had his keys in my left front pocket too. now that's a lot of stuff.

amusement parks

i went to kennywood today. i went because jason and haley were going and asked if we wanted to go. then i found out it was my dad's work picnic so i had him get me cheaper tickets. then dave didn't want to go all day so i decided to go early with my parents have dave meet me for bingo w/ my dad's work then we'd meet haley and jason at 5 when they showed up. i only learned later that jason's ticket he already had was for a nighttime ticket. i was surprised how early dave showed up. that made me happy. well after i'm at kennywood in the awful heat i learn haley and jason aren't going. made me mad for many reasons. i spent maybe 3 hours walking around the park and eating w/ dave. we only rode the marry go round. then i rode with my parents, but mainly my mom sat on a bench while my dad and i rode. so dave was there for a total of 6 hours. in the hottest part of the day. he parked in the 3rd parking lot and then when he tried to get back up there the ski lift was broken so he had to WALK up. also after he got up there he learned they do shuttle busses too. i was only there for about 2 hours after dave left. my parents wanted me to spend the night at their house and not bring me home but i talked them into bringing me home since we didn't stay until the park closed. i barely rode anything but it was still fun. i need smaller friends. i need friends willing to go on rides. i need friends willing to go to the park. it's sad.

so today i learned a story about a time i was at an amusement park up near Erie. i was a year and a half old and apparently i could talk really well at that age. well my parents wanted me to go on the train but i wanted to go on roller coasters. so i kept yelling at them that i didn't want to go on the train. my mom said i was a wild little girl. they thought i'd be scared but i liked rides. now they don't let you on so young. kids are missing out. they used to have the you have to be at least 48" (or some height) to ride this yourself but if you were shorter you just had to ride it with an adult. well now they have a hight like say 36" so you have to be between 36 and 48 if you want to ride it with an adult but can't ride it yourself. i've also noticed that lots of rides don't even have the shorter restriction and if you are under 48 you can't ride it at all. also the enterprise (now the volcano) makes you be 54" to ride the thing. that was NEVER the case before. insane.

so today my food was
2 donuts from dunkin donuts
big strawberry parfait with frozen yogurt on it.
french fries with cheese
and ice cream sandwich
half a piece of pizza (dave didn't like it so i got half)
some bites of his strawberry parfait with cool whip
french fries with cheese
dippin dots (cookies 'n cream)

and now i'm hungry and i'm going downstairs to eat.

hot

it was too hot today. we applied for our marriage license today. then went and parked for the game. but i walked over to tall girl and bought pants and walked back to the car and then i went into the game. then i still had an hour to kill before the game. boring. then we left the game at the 5th inning. or something near the fifth inning. it was 2-2 when we left. it ended 6-4. pirates lost.

Monday, July 30, 2007

after much searching last night and being disappointed. today i found a strapless bra that fit my criteria. how exciting. except i wanted black or nude and ended up with white. at least it's something.

Saturday, July 28, 2007

food 'n 'at

i made another batch of peanut butter balls tonight. well i made the balls but still have to cover them. i was about to go to sleep but i think i might go down and do round one of chocolate covered pretzels. i will do a new thing i learned a sam's club. it is you cover with the melting peanut butter then cover w/ chocolate after that. i don't know if it will work. but sam's club sells some like that. i guess it is too late and i only have about 8 inches of wax paper. i guess i have to wait. we need to make a shopping list. i don't know what to make. theni dont' know what to buy. last week we went and spent like a hundred bucks but we ended up not really buying any food food.

Thursday, July 26, 2007

my advice

when you plan to get married, just elope.
i brought work home to do tonight but i think it might be better. i messed myself up by watching 3 episodes of the biggest loser. i love that show.

Monday, July 23, 2007

Saturday, July 21, 2007

the pirates won. the sky was so pretty that i wanted to go over to the other side of home plate to take pictures of the field and the skyline. i didn't though. i was lazy.
Angie came today and we made great cards. Actually one she made was cooler because she saw how mine was set up and we decided it wasn’t pretty so she altered the plan slightly

Then I went and dropped off the rest of the silk flowers at the florist. They were so busy. I didn’t get to talk to the main lady, Liz, so I had to give the message to another lady. I better call next week to verify that Liz knows what flowers go with what.

Then I tried to go to gram’s to get her mixing bowl she said I could have. Well my relatives must have heard how we break in through the basement (well we told them) so then they blocked the door from basement to kitchen so I couldn’t get up there. I was so mad. after I left I realized there was another door I could have sneaked in. that door is about 1.5 feet wide. There’s no way they thought to block that one off. i better not say anything though or they might block it off too. my parents are supposed to get a key but they don't get it to him

Then I got carried away at Pat Catan’s and bought tons of cool stuff. but it is really cool and some of the stuff was very similar to what i was going to order from stampin up. but then it was like 1/3 the price

what an injury

the other night i was trying ot get my leg out from under the covers when i was sleeping. well doing that made my knee hurt. now my knee still hurts. it's my bad knee that hurt for a few months before.

Friday, July 20, 2007

i lifted some weights tonight. my butt feels like it had a workout. i hate when i workout and i dont feel like i had one.

Wednesday, July 18, 2007

today i ate a salad for lunch but then i was starving later so i ate a few candy bars.

Monday, July 16, 2007

dairy queen

dave and i both got something. i got a medium vanilla cone with rainbow sprinkles. dave got a 10 inch ice cream cake.

fyi: the ghetto DQ behind the mall is about 40 cents cheaper per cone than the fancy plum DQ. their cakes are cheaper than the DQ on 22 in Murrsyville.

updating

i spent all day updating 2 sites on my webpage. my calendar site is now updated. it only has pictures from May, June, and July though. Jesse still has to copy over the past 2 years of pictures. i also updated my weight graph. let me know what you think of my addition of vertical lines to help show why certain things happened.

Saturday, July 14, 2007

i put together center pieces today. we also worked on the bustle on my dress. i bought ribbon for scrapbooking too.

some more updates

so my knee is hurting again.

i went to my asthma doctor today.he's now my allergy doctor too. i think i left with 5 different things of free samples. it was like a giant eagle type bag full. he also told me about the half marathon that i posted about earlier. we talked about weddings some. i saw him jot down a few notes about my breathing tests. he told me they were good but his notes said something otherwise. some type of obstruction at the end or something. i was confused. i didn't ask. i told him how i started running again and i am so out of shape and i said about around Christmas when my knee hurt for so long. i told him how it hurt for 2 months before i went to the doctors. he said "you think that's bad. well i went 4 months before seeing a doctor about my ankles" ...he is a doctor.... 4 months... he explained his problem and fix too and last week was the first week he could run again.he won't be doing the half marathon this year. my mom doesn't think i can handle training for that and planning a wedding. i really want to do it to prove people at work wrong. they dont think i can. i never wanted to. i wanted to do a 5k. then this other person was going to do a half marathon with his gf and his gf asked me to do it and i didn't want to and she was saying how we should and this and that. but then their training lasted about a week so they aren't doing one. their half marathon is sept 2 in maryland. i guess whatever gives me inspiration. but i'm not sure i can really do it. i think it'll be really hard. i can at least finish but not do it in a good time.

i really need to work on drinking water. my feet kept cramping up today in the pool. i probably drank a total of 8 ounces of liquid today (all water) and maybe about 8 yesterday.

go me

tonight i did a pool workout and then i just got back from a jog

ok

should i do the 5k or the half marathon? i'm doing one.

now mind you i've only gone running a few times in the past year. and by a few i mean you can count the times on your hand. i've gone swimming a lot the past 2 weeks.

Wednesday, July 11, 2007

dave and i went running today. well we were both at the track.

i did my first lap of run 100, walk 100, run 100
lap 2 run 300 walk 100
lap 3 run 300 walk 100
lap 3 and on run 200 walk 100, run 200, walk 100, run 300, walk 100, run 100, walk 100

if my calculations are correct that's 6 laps. i did the first lap with dave. then the beginning of the 4th lap with him then the last 200 of the night with him.

Tuesday, July 10, 2007

it's a shame that it's so hot out and yet i have to wear a hoodie inside because it's so cold in here.

Monday, July 9, 2007

Saturday, July 7, 2007

i used my neti pot today. it didn't give me instantly allergy relief like it says it would. i've been miserable all day.
we bought numerous small things at ikea today. numerous small = spent a lot.
i slept about 10 hours. i have so much i want to do today but i probably won't end up doing most of it..

Thursday, July 5, 2007

i stayed up too late. there was a the biggest loser marathon on. i even taped it when i left to go running. that show is addicting. now i wish i saw the first half the season.

hmmm

should i get a text messaging plan? would anyone text message me?

i got a new phone today. this one i don't know if i'll read the directions on how to use it but i'm sure having trouble figuring things out now. i'm not really able to handle the lack of how the things on the top part aren't real buttons.

more exercise

well the deauville park gym wasn't that good. the only weight machien for legs was broken. so i did 1 set of all the arm ones i have done before w/ the machines there. next time i might read the directions to do more. and then i did the exercise bike for 5 minutes at the end. the tv wouldn't turn on and i didn't feel like spending time fiddling with it.

exercise

dave and i walked for 10 min then i came in and folded laundry and changed. then we went to the track and ran/walked. we alternated almost evenly. with running and walkign except i ran an extra lap in the middle. i did 6 laps and dave did 4. it was close to 25 minutes or something. i wish my athletic watch didn't have a dead battery.

Wednesday, July 4, 2007

lunch went ok. i spent over an hour and a half solid cooking to prep. dave wanted me to mop the floor then got mad when i didn't. you can't do that in the middle of cooking. he's insane.

Sunday, July 1, 2007

we played basketball tonight. 12 minutes. actual basketball players showed up that can shoot so we got scared and left. then we played catch with the football. we played sports for a total of 25 minutes.
our wedding cake will be unique
i fed the cat this morning. i sneeked out when she was eating so i didn't have to try to keep her in the door when i left. i felt bad though. she misses her owners and wanted some petting.

Saturday, June 30, 2007

someone broke my scale. it says i way 3.2 lbs less than it should.
somebody also put a bug on my wash rag to try to give me a heart attack while in the shower. the big bug was alive. scared me to death. i was about to just grab washrag to wash face. this time i turned around to grab it so i saw it. then i threw it in the trash. the whole wash rag. i saw the bug crawling around. then after shower i got out wash rag. no bug.

record for shortest run

today i have the record for the shortest run. 4 minutes. i got lightheaded. so going in the morning isn't good. well morning to me. after 12 hours of sleep and being kind of hungyr last night and lacking energy wasn't good. i should have eaten last night when i was hungry. so i guess for me running at night is better. i need someone to run with.

Friday, June 29, 2007

we saw artie lange tonight. the parking garages were full and traffic was awful once we were downtown. we were late. but they started late. so we didn't miss anything. we were over a half hour early but then no where to park. stupid city. he wasn't as funny as i thought he'd be. some of the people who opened for him were funnier than i thought they would be.
my cousin knocked up his girlfriend. he's 26. they kind of broke up like 3 weeks ago or so and got back together a week or so later. i wonder if that's why they got back together.

Thursday, June 28, 2007

so i'm cat sitting this weekend. then i get the key and learn i have to go in the morning and evening.

yay

angie canceled so i have no plans for tonight.

Wednesday, June 27, 2007

i keep trying to clean off my table. it doesn't work. i get distracted.

i bought center pieces today.

i'm thirsty.

Tuesday, June 26, 2007

busy bee = me. but next monday through friday i don't have any plans.
i'm so mad. i bought birhtday cards and father's day cards well in advance this year. i can't find them. note father's day has passed. i'm still looking. i'm still looking for the card i wanted on june 1. i bought 5. and if i don't find 1 by tomorrow then they will all be late or nonexistent. i tried to be fancy and have real cards. i like to get ccards so i thought others might. grr to buying cards in advance. everytime i do this i mess up.
well at least someone liked the cookies i made yesterday.

today we went to the post office. i had to wait in line. while in line a couple was there weighing their wedding invitations but they didn't put the map in yet. silly people. i learned in 2 days wedding stamps are coming out but only in the 58 cent ones. then we went to paintertown fire hall to meet the caterer. i called my mom on the way and asked the best way. she told me to take school hill 1 and if i missed that i could take school hill road 2. that's pretty funny. i made the first one. we were like a minute late. the meeting was awesome. they provide way more than i thought they would.

then we went to bubba darius for dinner. dave loves their pizza. we got fries first then pizza. then the table next to us did the same thing. i guess we aren't weird.

then it was off to target to return the broken fan and try to buy a new one. well they all sucked. but i did buy a purse, some insoles for my shoes, and a new wallet (2 actually. i'm so bad. really i am. i can't afford this now).
then we went all the way down 30 to 66 and took that to delmont and went to that walmart. they had a fan that dave likes. yay. we tried to go to dairy queen on the way back for dave but they closed at 10:30. we got there at 10:28 and they locked the doors as we were pulling in.

Monday, June 25, 2007

i don't get nearly enough e-mails throughout my day.
today was not a good day. then it got better. this evening was good and th en it became awful.

Sunday, June 24, 2007

i can't print out the maps. the picture of the map disappeared from the file my mom sent me. it only has the words directions. now i might have to visit them tomorrow evening to print them out.
oh and i thought i'd have time friday but we're going to see artie lange at heinze hall. so i guess i will have "free" time on saturday so i can talk to a baker.
so today when my dad was giving options about picking up timmy and mike in brooklyn and also moving timmy out of brooklyn right at the time of my ceremony, my mom started yelling saying she didn't have to go.

i'm sick of it. i know why people give the advice of just eloping.
after going to a million stores in the mall, i bought shoes for the wedding. i hope they don't end up hurting. they probably will.
i think i forgot to mention how yesterday my mom made me add eat to my to do list today since i forgot yesterday since i didn't write it down and i just went boom boom boom through my to do list.

Saturday, June 23, 2007

oh boy

so today i went for a run, showered, ate a muffin, went to the jewelry store,michael's, bed, bath, and beyond, sam's club, joann fabrics, kmart, then back home to drop off the stuff, then to my mom's. we worked on the bussle for my dress. i got lightheaded and was blacking out so we had to stop. i ate a granola bar and drank a small glass of milk. then it was off to spy in erin's new house that she bought. then joann fabrics, linen's and things, famous footwear but it wasn't there, so i went to marshalls. then kohls, famous footwear, world of values, and payless. then it was 9pm and time for dinner or lunch or whatever. we went to pugliano's. oh yummy pizza. then it was back to my parents house. i did the 2nd half of the shopping with them. we then looked up white shoes since i failed at finding white shoes at stores. well it was not easy to find white shoes while online either. now i have to hit up the mall and see if some of the stores that we found white shoes at actually have them in the store. so now my tomorrow plans are changed. so i got home like 10 minutes ago.

tomorrow i have to go to the mall, go to pat catan's, then go to my parents to actually make the bussle with the ribbon, then it's graduation party time 3-7. after 7 i will put stamps on the invitations. i didn't get to do that today. i have 3 new addresses so i can actually print those ones. i'm still missing at least 2 addresses though but i think i'll mail the rest without them.
so i just returned home. left the house around 1pm. so last night was my early night returning home. i got home around 10:20. i forget what i did monday or tuesday. so they may have been early nights. i'll check into that now. ok tuesday i was out until like 10:30. i forget what was monday.

more plans

while i'm thinking about it, i'll post. Thursday Angie is coming over to scrapbook and make cards. we've had the plans for awhile. they were originally for last Thursday but I postponed them to this week. that means prior to Thursday i need to print some pictures and also make / find some card examples.
there were too many people out and about today so i stopped my run incredibly early. my face was red i could tell. i didn't want people eying me up.

so 10 minute slow jog for me today.

Friday, June 22, 2007

upcoming plans

saturday (tomorrow): jewelry store, sam's club to pick up pictures and buy kleenexes, Bed, bath, and beyond to buy the other tv tower, Joann fabrics to use my 50% off coupons for wedding stuff (expires tomorrow), get bussle put on my dress
Sunday: graduation party
Monday: work then dinner with Adam
Tuesday: work then meeting with the caterer at the reception hall
wednesday: work then dinner with my mom and Kris to discuss wedding decorations.


oh and i have to make a map and directions to the reception hall, print them, put them in the envelopes, print a few more envelopes. put stamps on the envelopes, and mail it all.
i really want to get in a run every other day at least. i haven't run since monday. i'm going to run at least 1 5k this summer but hopefully 2. i have to research where and when.

and thursday is too far in advance. i probably have something.
i'm such a girl. we looked at wedding bands today. we are going back tomorrow. dave's ring size is big so they aren't sure of the cost so he was checking online and he couldn't find prices either.
i just napped for about an hour. it wasn't nearly long enough.

Thursday, June 21, 2007

busy bee

well i got home today at 11:13. so that's earlier than it has been. plus i was home for about 5 minutes after work and before i left. time to shower.

Wednesday, June 20, 2007

i think i'm going to die from being so busy and not being able to sit and rest and never being done.

Tuesday, June 19, 2007

we went ot dave and busters. it was fun. but it was too crowded so we didn't cash and buy anything w/ the tickets. so now i have to keep this dave and buster's card for next time. it actually wans't as fun as before. it was too crowded andd i didn't' get to use my favorite games.

Monday, June 18, 2007

i only ran 18 minutes today but th eworkout was way harder than the last time i ran at 15 minutes. i went on northern pike and then the 2 housing plans. i should have done the dead end first. that hill was rough. i also ran around the plan a little before northern pike.

Sunday, June 17, 2007

3 loads of laundry done. well the last load was just a comforter. i didn't put it in the dryer. it's hanging over a shelving unit to dry. my hands are so dry from the laundry detergent.

last week i picked a place for the reception and picked a caterer for the reception.

this week i hope to talk to the florist and also talk to a few bakers (or maybe just one baker) about the wedding cake and cookies. i will also mail out invitations. if i am still missing a few addresses, i'll catch them the next day. i'm also still deciding if i should register and where. i thought i should but my mom thinks i shouldn't she said you do that for a sh ower. well i'm not getting one so i think i should do it anyway. i've already had someone ask what to get me.

things that bug me

so i gave dave's mom picture from April 2004. these pictures had Dave, Justin, their great Aunt Florence, and their mom. well what bugs me is that dave's mom only makes a big deal about loving hte pictures with justin and she wants me to get her 8x10 of them. she doesn't say anything at all about the pictures with dave. doesn't say she likes them. doesn't take a second look at them. granted justin died but shouldn't you like to have pictures of your living son too. grrr. should i be letting this bother me as much as it does?
how is it already 9pm. i have os much that i want to do. i also have ot do laundry. i have to clean up.
worst bed ever.

the bed we lseep in when visiting pb's family. it's the worst.

Friday, June 15, 2007

i just finished making pizzelles. the first few were too thick and fluffy. i learned to cook them longer. the rest were more like gram's. some are a little darker. i got about 3 dozen with 3 eggs worth of ingredients. my gram gave me the recipe today for 6 eggs worth. that's the only ingredient she measures. i mostly followed her recipe but i didn't put as much anise in it. i probably only put 1/8 of what she puts in.
the loop in our apt complex is so small i get so bored with it. i even switch directions and do different turns to do the circle and i do all ways and it's 15 minutes. that's what i did today. it was too dark or i was going to run on the main road to a different complex.

Thursday, June 14, 2007

ack. i missed posting yesterday because i left at 7am for work and then didn't return until midnight.

Wednesday, June 13, 2007

i don't have enough time after i get home from work and before it gets dark. it's so annoying.
i just ironed 6 shirts. i hate these new shirts nowadays that you have to iron.

Monday, June 11, 2007

we went to the pool tonight. it was tiring.

i'm sick of my shoes. my shins hurt.

i went to target with Haley. i got what i forgot to get yesterday. tennis balls and bleach for colors.

Sunday, June 10, 2007

today

i bought invitations today and a tiara. i also bought a bra for under my wedding dress. i looked at shoes.

i spent an hour trying to decide which invitations to get.

i bought new chocolate for work but forgot to buy bleach for colors. pb and i went to gateway high school track to walk.

now i'm doing laundry. i need to do some westinghouse work before the night is up.

i just took out the tiara to show dave and a little bead came off. i could glue on a new one but stupid thing fell off. i can't find where it bounced to.
15 min run today. i had to spit so i returned.

Saturday, June 9, 2007

Friday, June 8, 2007

i hate vonage. i always have. i dont understand why/how pb loves it. it always breaks. now i'm going to go way over on my cell this month because that one sucks.
i guess things are better now. there are more choices. i decided not to give away dates just yet because things seem to change every time i do.

Thursday, June 7, 2007

mad

hate hate hate

hopefully tomorrow it will all work out but i'm not even going to get into it that's how mad i am.

but it does involve a paragraph in my previous post.

a few things

so why does david's bridal keep sending me post cards about their gown sales. i already bought a dress through them. yes through them. that's how they got my info. do they think i need 2 dresses or something?

today dave said "look there's a hottie" and when i turned to see who he was pointing out, he was pointing to me.

i booked our ceremony place and honeymoon today and moved up the wedding a few months. so the wedding is in about 10 weeks.

i made dinner tonight. 2 kinds of spaghetti because i'm a good gf. i made angel hair for me and regular for pb. then i made a separate sauce for him too with tomato chunks.

our cable keeps going out here so i didn't get to post this earlier.

Wednesday, June 6, 2007

i unpacked a box today.

and by unpacked i mean i took all the junk out of the box and put it down on the carpet beside the box. the junk also blocks the doorway to the den (not sure what we are calling the room, it's computers, scrapbooking, and my old bedroom furniture)
i went running tonight.

today

i made dinner for 5 people tonight. i sat on the back of the couch to join the table. not enough chairs. dave was originally going to sit on the couch but decided to join everyone else. brian complimented me on my potatoes. some guitar hero was played and then once everyone ate they left. i wanted them to stick around a little.

Tuesday, June 5, 2007

Monday, June 4, 2007

this was such an awful weekend. everything went wrong so then i didn't have time to do other stuff.

at least dave discovered that if he moves the really really old cable wire away from the power strips then the internet works again. but i doubt that was the problem but what a coincidence that was.

Sunday, June 3, 2007

the dryer now works. the washer does too. the washer liked to drain onto the floor. we learned that the floor is sloped in the exact opposite corner of the drain. sucks
i've spent about the last hour playing guitar hero. i can't even believe it.

oi

i sent my mom my link to yesterday so i wouldn't have to retell her. then she complained about how she wont read my journal and i said to read it. then she sends me an e-mail correcting all my typos. she copied the post into her e-mail and changed all the words to red that she changed. if she only knew every post was like that then she wouldn't get on my case. she told me not to get mad in the e-mail.

more

also it makes me so mad that jason and haley won't ever drive and always want dave to drive. they never ever pay for gas. they dont pay for parking. i had to pay for parking last night. they even comment that they don't really care about money but they never pay enough when we split a bill. friday night at dinner they only gave us enough money for an 11% tip. i call them on this and they say that's all they give. but if he was putting it on his credit card he'd give more.

this is continuation from last night because i had to pay for the parking. so it was like one thing that made me mad after the other.

pretty much the worst day

I didn’t get any unpacking done yesterday. We spent forever trying to get our vonage phone. well mainly dave did it all. i didn't do much except help him plug and unplug things upstairs. he even called their customer support and talked for what seemed like a half hour when i was upstairs. they finally fixed it but through that ordeal happen to break our wireless router so we had to go buy a new one. he broke the router by plugging the vonage power into it. it did something to the wireless but it would still work as a router if you could plug in. but vonage doesn't work now because he moved vonage to upstairs before realizing that he broke the router.

while we were out buying the router, we also bought a 3 prong cord for the dryer instead of our 4 prong one. now i can do laundry. not that i want to but i need to. *

we had plans to go to a baseball game. there would be 5 total. dave didn'' want to drive since he felt like he was getting a cold and had be taking cold medicine and he felt that he shouldn't have to since he always does. well nobody else would so if he didn't we weren't going. he was mad. he drove. we left at 3:40 to go to fuddruckers before the game. It took us an hour and a half to get down to Fuddruckers. i was in so much hate of all the traffic and waiting 20 minutes on the bridge to even turn right and then also people going fast in the left late (the wrong lane) and then cutting over at hte last minute, that i wasn't even hungry anymore. Then off to the game. the ride to the game wasn't as bad as to fuddruckers but i still think it was worse than theride down used to be a few years ago. at the game i bought food near the end of the game that i would get to finish by the end but stupid 9th inning, we had to get the other team out in 3 fly outs so it was over so quickly and then since we were ahead we skipped the last half inning. i still had half my nachos left. it made me mad. i got up to carry them out and eat while walking and got cheese all over my shirt. they were impossible to hold w/o using my thumb which had a splint thing on it. so i held them like a waitress holds a tray. my arm was frozen in that positing. then while getting into the car i notice a note under the windshield wiper. the note said that they watched someone back into our car and leave and gave the plate number but they didn't sign it. so all four of us have to get out of the car. dave made me call the cops but after he was already leaving the garage. we had to wait for the cops. It only took them 2 hours to find us. We weren’t exactly at the spot we said we were, we moved down to the end of the block to pull over and not be in everyone’s way. But it was at least an hours wait before the original guy tried to show up. I think more like an hour and a half.

also jason deletes pictures from my camera. gravester and pb probably still remember the time they did and how mad i was. and they deleted one of mine in may of 2003 and it was only 1 picture. jason is never touching my camera again.

* update: i tried to hook up the new 3 prong and it's the wrong kind of 3 prong. who knew there were even 2 kinds. now i have to go out again. this sucks.

Friday, June 1, 2007

i just made a car appt. i described my problem and then the guy just started busting out laughing. sigh

i also made an apt for an oil change since it's been a year. the oil reading thing still says 53% but since it's been a year i shoudl do it.

the problem w/ the car is that i thought the turnsigal light was out. but then it'll work again. then the next time i drive it won't. i assume this means it's electrical. how should i have explained that to get the guy to not laugh at me.

well if i even knew how to get ot the turn signal i could change it myself but i don't. i wont ask people becuase they'll think i'm stupid. also it may not be electrical. i just think that they'll find nothing wrong and then laugh at me again.

Thursday, May 31, 2007

i was so exhausted last night so i was going to go to sleep early. somehow that didn't happen. i was up til midnight. there just isn't enough time in the day to unpack and catch up on all my files that i update and rest.
there is too much to unpack and not enough room for it.

Wednesday, May 30, 2007

how exciting

dave and i got cookies today. the note says "from your stalker"
it's too hot. the thermostat is st to 70 and it's not running0 so apparently it's 70 downstairs. but ti's 77.5 upstairs. they said we'd get a set back thermometer but we didn't.

so tomorrow we need to call the apt people about the set back thermeter, pugliano's about getting our deposit back, and dave needs to call erie to change his insurance address. then i need to change my address on my credit cards. we need to change our address at work.

so much to do that i even got distracted in the middle of this post.
we got our new a/c today. it's huge. i haven't gone down to see the new furnace though.

Tuesday, May 29, 2007

yay for internet. not yay for not being able to get cable in the 2nd bedroom. not yay for not having a/c yet. not yay for not having any silverware here so i couldn't eat my cereal. we even bought the milk yesterday.

Monday, May 28, 2007

busy weekend

our new place is smaller but a lot of things are better about it. last night i wanted to walk around the nieghborhood and peer in people's windows to see how they figured out how to arrange their furniture but i got distracted unpacking and didn't get to it.

it was too hot yesterday to work so i didn't get much done at all.

i have numerous bruises on my arms and legs. moving really does a number on me.

yesterday we bought a new micrwoave. we bought the same one my parents have. it's about as big as our kitchen. it actually is too wide to fit on any of our counter space so we have to put it on the desk. i can't figure out how to organize anything in the kitchen cabinets.

we'll have internet tomorrow at our new place. i'm not sure about what the window is for the cable guy. i guess i should look into that. i have to so some work for Westinghouse tomorrow. oh and i have to do my time sheet. perhaps i'll do that now since it's due by 9am.
