it's an awful idea to go grocery shopping right after eating too much

Sunday, December 28, 2008

18 episodes of the OC is more fun than cleaning.

one tree hill is better than The OC though.

Saturday, December 27, 2008

i just watched 12 episodes of the OC. Oops.
i just said to dave "looking at this house, you'd be surprised we're having a party here tomorrow night."

it's so messy. i should probably clean instead of playing mario kart.

i have a nice to do list. it's the list of stuff that needs to be cleaned. i made it for the last party i had. i just changed the dates in the hater and uncrossed stuff out. i had to add stuff. but i did get to take stuff off of the list too. there are probably only about 50 things left on the list.
it sucks that i just had to use a stamp to mail a $1 medical bill.

BTW I hate medical bills. I get too many.

laundry

i've heard of losing a sock in the wash but never half a bra.
it tore or something in the front. i only have the left piece. i don't know how that happened. i wonder where the other half is.

update: i found the other half of the bra. it was stuck in the dryer.
2nd week in a row that we forgot to take out the trash.

Friday, December 26, 2008

today

i did some shopping today.
i spent my Christmas money... times 3. oops

i bought a white (or maybe it's off white) suit. i got some sweaters and long sleeve shirts.
then at target, we got some Christmas stuff on sale and I found arch supports there. Everywhere is always out. I bought 1... they only had 1. I also bought a jewelry box at Kohl's. I wanted a 30" chain but they were out.
target and kohl's were mad houses. i hated it.
anne taylor loft and new york and company weren't that bad. well new york and company was a little bad. they had stuff on manicans but i couldn't find the shirts anywhere. and i couldn't find workers to ask.

Tuesday, December 23, 2008

i fell asleep through 30 rock. so i tried to watch it again. and i fell asleep. i think i did a 3rd time but PB wouldn't let me. then i napped. and woke up 3 hours later.

i had some crazy dreams. one was that gram was living at her house on the main floor and someone else lived upstairs.

we were all baking cookies and weird desserts for my wedding. we were doing it at grams but for some reason we had to park way down the moutain. the mountain part of it i think is because of jason's house. not sure about the wedding part of it. i just know that the cookie part of it is because i need to make more cookies.

our neighbors have a Christmas party tonight. it starts in 3 hours.

Monday, December 22, 2008

today

I made so many cookies today.
ok i barely made any but i spent pretty much most of the day. I still have to cover the peanut butter balls. the sugar cookies sure are good.

post from 3 days ago

the following post is from 3 days ago. but my program on my mac kept having a server problem and wouldn't post.

i stayed up too late
the last 2 episodes were hard to stay awake through

i probably only have 10 more before i'm totally caught up with all 6 seasons

Friday, December 19, 2008

i bought a new watch today. a fairly cheap one.
but in the past month or so my one watch battery died and the band on that one was about to break. then i lost my dressy watch that became my everyday watch. so then i finally used my old watch that was so worn down. it was silver and gold. but some of the finish kind of wore off and turned red. well i left that watch at my parents.

i'm naked without a watch. and meetings at work are awful without a watch.

Tuesday, December 16, 2008

i just took a 2 and a half hour nap. i think i should go to sleep for th enight or something.

Friday, December 12, 2008

i'm so tired. i didn't get to sleep enough. My heart attack alarm died in the night. i shook it and it started ticking again but i don't think that is smart. i shouldn't trust it for another night unless i get new batteries in it.

Time to finish getting ready to head to my parents.

I really wish I would have had some cafeine yesterday. I might have some today. we'll see.

work party

tonight was our work christmas party.
that was an awesome Christmas party. it kind of sucked
but then someone (the VP of my business unit at work. aka the highest ranking person at our Christmas party) talked with me and a friend for like 25 min (well and this other guy) but then he talked 1 on 1 with me. Based on our conversation he said i would be good in projects. that what i said. that's what dave said. he said it and i didn't tell him that's what I thought.
... while we were talking as a group that other guy was hitting on Jen. and then he made fun of her and then we started talking with VP right after that. i think he was hitting on me. he kept inches toward me and we were touching arms. and i'd move away and he'd do it again (then after my friend noted that to me too). and at one point he put his hand on the small of my back and like moved it up and down. i forget what it was about. one of the party coordinators walked over and said to the VP that of course he'd be standing next to a pretty girl... we talked work and stuff. it was just interesting to talk to him. i also talked to people in Quality and not just my quality group. i talked to a few other people i knew there. i didn't mingle much but i didn't know too many people first. i'm still kind of freaked out about talking to dan.

there were more things that made the day interesting too.

one odd thing was i only knew 2 guys in NPP outside of quality and outside of the managers that I know because of CAPs. both of those guys were practically the only guys who danced. very odd. numerous people tried to get me to dance. mostly girls in my group and guys in my group (who wanted all the girls to dance). i was not dancing though.

Tuesday, December 9, 2008

7 horus of sleep total in 2 days. not good.
time to go to sleep. i didn't even get to sleep early tonight.

i want more One Tree Hill but it'll be 6 days before Season 2 is downloaded.
they are up to the 6th season. I can't stop thinking about this show.

Monday, December 8, 2008

i accidentally stayed up too late.
for the 2nd night in a row.

i have PT at 7:30 tomorrow. this is going to suck.

i was up until 4 last night.

stupid TV show.

Saturday, December 6, 2008

i put the lights on the tree last night.

too many on the bottom so i was running out so then the top isn't as densly populated.


i took pictrue.s

now i'm filing down my shelf so it will actually fit in my bookshelf. my dad cut it about 1mm too long.

i added 5 new albums and 1 picture in the random gallery http://picasaweb.google.com/colleen.michelle.mccloskey

Wednesday, December 3, 2008

lights

i put tree lights on today. only 3 strands. so if i do 3 strands a day. the lights should be on in 6 days if i put as many lights as last year. i did want to put less.

Monday, December 1, 2008

i stayed up too late.

for the last hour i've been so tired i could barely keep my eyes open.

Friday, November 28, 2008

i'm at my parents again tonight. i went shopping with them today. my leg gets worse and worse. my mom was limping and limping just like me. i think i conked out before she did.

on our way home from kmart my dad remembered that he had to go to a funeral home tonight.

i'm hungry and there's no food.

Thursday, November 27, 2008

all the kids (besides PB) weighed ourselves before and after eating today.

i had the 3rd most lbs weight gain, and the 2nd most percent weight gain. i wrote down the numbers so i can put it in the scrapbook. timmy won

Thursday, November 20, 2008

all the roads 'n 'at are snow covered. i wonder how they are to drive on them.
today my knee felt the best that it's felt in awhile. i started to almost think that i might become normal again.
then i took the shower. that hurts.

it made me forget about the hurt from my flu shot yesterday and the hurt from my allergy shot the day before.

allergy shots don't ever hurt. or didn't used to ever hurt.

last night i didn't sleep well. i couldn't sleep on either side. and i'm a slide sleeper so it wasn't fun.

Tuesday, November 18, 2008

today is the first day since i got my laptop at work that i didn't bring it home.

tomorrow is going to be a long day. the warranty guy shows up at 7:30am. i hope he's not early.
then after work I am giving a stampin' up class here and providing dinner (salad and stuffed shells)

Saturday, November 15, 2008

haircut

I saw the hair cutting scissors so i decided to give myself a hair cut.

i tried to link it to the picture but after i loaded it once it didnt' show up. so you have to click to get to them i think

before (note the location of hair to wording on shirt): before

i cut it but dave said it looked the same: middle (well after first cut and before second)

then i got a shower and dave cut more: after

very upsetting

well a few weeks ago i got new VS pants with a 36" inseam so that's nice
i wore the one pair of black pants and all they did was stretch all day.
that was stupid
the next thing was they say to line dry
well i forgot.
and
well they shurnk 3.5 inches. .......... so mad.

Friday, November 14, 2008

i'm still trying to get my work laptop to work right. i woke it up from hibernation at 9:15 and the usb mouse wouldn't work. then other stuff wouldn't work and i tried to reboot and that wouldn't work

ugh. i came upstairs to post this and do a few things. it's attempting to log me in right now. and it's been for awhile.

partial update

this is the first time i've used my mac since monday.

tuesday and wednesday night i slept at my parents house so that i didn't have to drive as far to get to WM for work the next day.

We did introduce a girl to engineering day at WM. http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/tribunereview/news/westmoreland/s_598423.html the girl they quoted (april) is a volunteer that i put in charge of a certain area. i never get interviewed or my picture taken but i do a ton of work. IGE was on both Wed and Thurs and the Dry run for volunteers was on Tuesday.
On Tuesday I went to Aunt Elaine's afterwards to visit the baby. He ws fussy since he has an ear infection.

I was so exhausted this week that i fell asleep on the couch a little after 9 on Thursday night. so i didn't get to do all i wanted to do.

i called and got my MRI results. I need surgery. well 2 options. surgery or PT. i've done PT. they said that surgery will only help for a short while or something like that. it won't make it good forever and also said something about that i'll get arthritis. i didn't get the actual letter yet, i called and made them read it to me over the phone.

more has happened but i need to get my knee brace on and do some stuff that i've been putting off.

Monday, November 10, 2008

my laptop took 3 min to boot up from shut down. but it takes forever to wake up from being asleep. perhaps no more putting it to sleep.
it's cold.
at work it was cold. my feet were numb. i left work 15 min earlier than i planned because i couldn't take the cold. now i'm home and my feet are numb again.
i'm ready for bed. i stayed up too late.

Sunday, November 9, 2008

today i've watched tv, gone to the movies, took a nap, watched tv.

oh i guess after movies and before falling asleep i ate at steak 'n shake. that was the only meal i had today. i did eat popcorn at the movies.

Saturday, November 8, 2008

my laptop took 17 minutes to boot up. i timed it.

took 17 minutes to wake up from being asleep. i should time it it from being shut down.

i forget what i even wanted to use the computer for. and while it was booting, i thought up 2 other things. if only I could remember.

Friday, November 7, 2008

super tired

still about an hour of cleaning to do if i can suffer through the pain
then 2.5 hours minimum of cooking

people arrive at 12. i'm so dang tired.
i had to search in my email to find out what foods I'm cooking tomorrow. i couldn't remember. i probably should allot an extra half hour for something i forgot to buy at the store.

so 4 hours
so start my "day" at 8.
hmm i need to allot for 20 minutes of the heating pad at least once in there.

am i allowed to wear my pj pants tomorrow with company here?
my laptop takes about 20 minutes to start up now. i don't know what's wrong with it.
so tired.

Thursday, November 6, 2008

it's probably bad taht i didnt' buy the food for Saturday yet.
and i won't be home until 10 tomorrow.
it sucks that i still need to go grocery shopping for food for saturday and for stuff for tomorrow. i can barely walk. stupid knee

Wednesday, November 5, 2008

of coruse iw ork tomorrow and this is the altest i've stayed up all week.
we dropped dave's car off to get an oil change and warranty work. then we went to dinner. we went down route 8 and didn't find anything so we turned around and went on the turnpike to cranberry and then went to on the border.

i didn't do nearly enough on my to do list.

i did aboug 5 of 58 yesterday
and 1 today
i started a few things but didn't finish. i still have some time before my next break. maybe i'll get some stuff done.

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

I'm up

i'm up already. on my vacation day. i wanted to go back to sleep. i couldn't. am i turning into an early bird or something. i haven't even been staying up past 10 lately. i used to stay up until 1 all the time. and that time difference is more than 1 hour so it's not only the clock change.
i'm so tired. this isn't good. i need to stay up for awhile to see election stuff.

Monday, November 3, 2008

i am never going to make it staying up late tomorrow. i'm so tired right now.

tomorrow is more exciting than Christmas so maybe i'll be hopped up on excitement and stay up all night.
also tomorrow is like Christmas but better.
all i do is eat.

I didn't get paid for 12 of my OT hours.

all i want to do is eat.

i didn't wear my knee brace to work today. i wish i had.

we had 21 kids for halloween here. one kid took 3 candybars and then he kicked our obama sign repeatedly.

splitcoast stampers website is so slow lately. it makes it take longer to get card ideas.

Thursday, October 30, 2008

cookies

so i made no-bake cookies tonight
i thought i could take some in to work for my group
then thought I could take some in to JD
then remembered tomorrow is Friday... so it's JD's birthday.

so then i made JD a birthday card
then i went to go put cookies in containers but they are not cool
i want to go to sleep since i have to be at work really early tomorrow

but i'm the type of person that can't fall asleep knowing there is something to be done. sigh
i have a feeling they have hours before they arent' soft.

i put some in a ziplock and put them in the freezer. i hope that doesn't ruin them.

you use ziplocks so when you sneek some frozen ones, you don't end up breaking the container.

anyway so now i have to put the cookies in containers tomorrow morning. and i already have to get to work super early and hate to wake up in the morning. now i have to make sure my alarm is set early enough for me to have time to get ready. and i didn't even change my regualr alarm. so i'm only relying on heart attack alarm. it doesn't have a snooze. this could end up bad.

and it could also end up bad in taht sometimes when i'm afraid i'll sleep in, i don't sleep well the entire night.
we'll see how it goes.
i decided since i email people about all kinds of random stuff but the don't respond that i should just post it all in here. people don't respond here but at least it's all compiled nicely together.

i hope i can remember that i decided this.

pants

last week i got so fed up with my pants not being long enough and not being able to find pants long enough anywhere in stores that I ordered pants from Victoria's Secret

so 2 days ago they were delivered. i was pretty excited. and afraid that i would have picked the wrong size

the "yoga" pants are awesome. they are long. my ankles don't get cold. they fit at the waist and the crotch.  i hope they wash well. if they lose an inch or 2 in the length they will still work because i got 36 inch inseam on all my new pants.
the new black pants, i wore yesterday stretched the entire day.  so they got way too big.  sadness.  they are long enough though.
the khaki pants (i wore today) are nice and long. they fit well and they did not stretch.

so 2 out of 3 isn't bad and the 1 that i don't like i still like better than my other pants.

Monday, October 27, 2008

make my nose stop dropping. that's all i want for now. i can deal with my nose,upper lip, and eyes being super dry later.

Saturday, October 25, 2008

so how come PB got me sick and he was only sick for 2 days and I'm on day 5 of being sick?

Thursday, October 23, 2008

i went to work wednesday then went to giant eagle on the way home because dave wanted me to and i said i'd just grab a few of the things we really need. i bought the entire list. i'm dead today. sicker than i was. and now my throat is killing me.

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

so i had bloodwork done at quest. i get separate bills for all the different tests they ran. they cost me stamps and each bill is under 5 bucks.

cancel Amex card

I tried to cancel my blue cash and my blue for students amex cards today. I have my coporate card and my Citi Amex still.

So I call
put in numbers to one of the cards
a choice is cancel card
i say it. it can't hear me or understand me.
i repeat. it still can't understand me.
so then i hit the number associated with canceling a card (you can say "cancel a card or press 4" (or whatever number it was)
and it then takes me to "add a card" not "cancel a card"
and i cant' get out of it right. i can't go back. at other areas it says you can say "go back" and it will take you back.

The 2nd time i called, i didn't say or press the cancel a card and said representative and then hit 0 and i got to one.

then there were all these problems and slowness on their end. I only got 1 card canceled. The guy apologized. the 2nd one wouldn't go through. I have to call back another time. These cards haven't been used in years but i want to get rid of it.

stupid stupid stupid


(i guess i forgot to post this yesterday)

pictures

house pictures

very few uploaded yet. but finished house pictures not halfway built house pictures

dinner

I only ate 20 small cheese raviolis for dinner.
normally i eat 45-55. sad times. i also ate less bread than normal.
well i'm home sick today and my nose won't stop running. i'll probably go through over 1 entire box of kleenxes. i have been searching for vaseline but can't find it. my nose is starting to get raw.

Monday, October 20, 2008

I'm probably getting sick or sick when I go to sleep at 10pm. and if i go to sleep at 10 2 out of 3 nights, i know something is up. i'm just preparing to get sick now.

well and my nose keeps running.

Sunday, October 19, 2008

so many things make me mad.
why is it that when i bump a knee it's always my bad knee?

i just swiveled in my chair to get up and really bumped my right knee. i almost knocked over the bookshelf (if it was just free standing, it would have been knocked over)

Saturday, October 18, 2008

now our lawn has 3 heights. it got dark too soon.

and i keep grass staining all my pants.

the grass is always wet. today is the first day it didn't rain. it was still wet.
it's too cold in here. we should turn on the heat.

3 thermometers upstairs read 64, 65, and 66. brrr
garage door opener is now installed.
and the garage is in the midst of being organized

i also wiped off the layers of dirt from our front door and porch railing.

Wednesday, October 15, 2008

all it does is rain. well rain for a few minutes

our grass has been half cut since Sunday.
i just ironed 14 things.

11 more to go (at least)
UPS said they delivered a package but I never got it. They said they left it on the porch.

My mom needs surgery on her knee.


I am finally going to iron. (I didn't say I would iron all my clothes that need to be ironed, but some will get ironed.)

Monday, October 13, 2008

the worst time getting gas today.

the card wouldn't swipe
the pump didn't work

they did charge me the wrong amount too. that was 20 cents under. but more than whatn I lost got sprayed out from the pump. stupid thing.

Sunday, October 12, 2008

also our upstairs toilet is clogged. we bought a plunger today but the plunger seems to suck.
lawn mowing is nothing but trouble
it takes too long
also i need to buy a weed wacker. i was going to get one today but felt ready to pass out at sears so we left after we bought the garage door opener and before looking at weedwackers.
i finally made a new icon. I think it's been 2 years.

Saturday, October 11, 2008

i was gone from the house for more than 12 hours today.

my legs are going to be sore tomorrow.

Sunday, October 5, 2008

it is not a good idea to watch criminal minds right before bed. i think i've said that before too. i guess i didn't learn. i was in bed trying to fall asleep for over an hour and was scared because of the show I just watched.
I want to watch more TV. I didn't do anything this weekend that I wanted to do. I did some stuff I guess like laundry, yardwork, and carry some stuff upstairs.
i just spent 40 min puling weeds and cleaning up straw and you can't even tell.
i watched lots of TV shows last night. i stayed up until 4:30 am.

My knee really hurt when I woke up.

I have tons of stuff that should get done today but I want to finish watching TV. I should probably make a to do list and finish a few things.

Saturday, October 4, 2008

wedding

i have to go to a wedding today. i had to figure out what to wear a little bit ago.

i decided to wear a skirt/shirt since my dresses suck or are summery and then i remembered this one outfit that i wore in summer 2005 that my mom said "it looks like you are going to a wedding" so i had to dig that shirt out. i havent' worn either since. now i have my outfit picked out and i don't have to go shopping.

i would upload a pic but i don't know how to upload to my site from my mac. it's probably really easy. oh i can upload it to my picasa. ehh i'll do that later. no i'll wait until i'm actually ready for the wedding instead of dripping wet hair and upload that pic so i look nice in it.

Thursday, October 2, 2008

i have a tripod that is more than a few inches high. now i can take all kinds of pictures.

i have to c lean. but instead i am watching keith. then going to watch the debate. then going to watch post debate coverage.
i got home from work a little bit ago but I ate and it got so late.

Sunday, September 28, 2008

the weekends just fly by. i need another vacation day. or 2.

we can get our cars in the garage now. just the rest of the house is junky. our kitchen is too small. i think if we didn't switch the powder room and closet then we'd have enough space. it's like i need one more cabinet. and i would have had that. it's because we buy too much food at once beause we really hate to go to the grocery store.

we tried to buy some furniture today but we can never find anything that we are looking for. i wish the room was a foot or 2 deeper and a foot or 2 wider then we wouldn't have to worry about dimensions.

Thursday, September 25, 2008

weight graph

i finally updated my weight graph
http://colleen.akwire.net/weight/
the last time was July 28. I always forget to change the last updated date on the page.
it's normal to use 3 computers at one time. right?

Wednesday, September 24, 2008

chair

id on't think my black desk chair is going to match my room.

but right now i'm sitting on a step stool since my chair is downstairs.

Sunday, September 21, 2008

Saturday, September 20, 2008

we spent about 4 hours at ikea today.

one of the things we got is missing the box of hardware.
also we tried to be sure we didn't lose the receipt and i kept it this time. and then we get home and it's not in my purse. it disappeared. i wanted to analyze it too.
everything we bought just barely fit into the car...using the trunk and back seat and making the front seats be up further than normal. this is the impala too.

Friday, September 19, 2008

gram is out of intensive care.

3 days in a row i didn't get home until after 9. so tired.

Thursday, September 18, 2008

Sunday, September 14, 2008

last night i rode a mechanical bull. my thighs hurt so bad right now.
I live in the sticks
pizza hut doesn't deliver here.

Saturday, September 13, 2008

i'm at a conference in Erie.

It's fun. it kind of sucks having to be somewhere by 8am on the weekends though.

Monday, September 8, 2008

1.5 hours into putting up this tv wall mount my arm is sore. the directions say it takes 10 min to instal.

today someone told me: i didn't even recognize you. you look so pretty
i didn't do anything special. i even didn't have a necklace on. i had on a skirt. curled my hair ends under.

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

well

well i finished my conference call for work.

The cable guy left.  He was here over 2 hours.

Monday, September 1, 2008

complain

I seem to like to complain. --well it seems that i like to anyway.
I logged on to post that my shins hurt.

Sunday, August 31, 2008

during the day it sure is bright in this place without blinds. i better go to sleep now so that when the sun wakes me up I at least have some sleep in me.

I have really come to the conclusion that I can't decorate. I don't know what towels or rugs to get for the bathrooms. I also need to know what pillows to have for the family room. I need a non-engineer to help.

My body is sore. My shins hurt.

It's so odd to have a house.
I'm moved.

I have a ton of unpacking to do. I still have some carrying from the POD to do too.

It's tiring.

i have a lot of buying to do too.

The master bedroom seems so empty.

Thursday, August 28, 2008

ugh. why is it so hard to take a pill at 11. fast take a pill at 11 and extremely hard to fast, take a pill at 11 and then get bloodwork at 8. i should have taken the pill with me tonight ugh.


also i was never so happy to find 286 in my life. i was so lost out in the boonies. streets aren't even labeled. the gps wouldn't turn on. i mean ti turned on but wouldn't ge ta signal and low battery light was blinking.
i have to get an 8am cortisol test
i need to fast for it
and take a steroid the night before at 11pm

i've tried to do this everyday for a week. i either don't fast because i work too late, forget to take the pill at 11 or have an early meeting at work that i can't get it done.

now tomorow is my last chance to do it before my appointment.

Saturday, August 23, 2008

my shins hurt

that is all
i want to train for a half marathon.

i just don't know how to start.

last night i was jogging on the treadmill and as soon as i got above 6.2 mi/hr my knee had sharp pains. if i ran at 6.2 i was ok.
i went to home depot today. i ended up looking for a paint color for my craft room. so the only thing i decided is i don't want yellow. i picked up paint samples of practically every other color and a ton of each color because there are different shades. i can't decide.
less than a week and i'll have a house

Sunday, August 17, 2008

lunch

my lunch consisted of steak and chicken today. i did eat a little leftover angel hair with marsala sauce too.

Friday, August 15, 2008

i'm getting fat. it's because i eat all wrong (even worse than before). i'm way too busy at work so i don't eat "breakfast" anymore. then my lunch is super small because i hurry to get back to work. then i don't snack at all anymore. then i eat a huge dinner. then i eat snacks at night and eat while sitting in bed right before going to sleep.

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

i walked on the treadmill tonight. i tried to read a book while walking. it made the time go quicker but my eyes hurt. it's rough work trying to read while walking. and read a soft back book.

Saturday, August 9, 2008

here i am wishing i had a mouse pad with a wrist pad. and then i realize my other computer (this one.the mac. sitting right beside it has one.)
i slept too late and now i stayed up too late.

Friday, August 8, 2008

Thursday, July 31, 2008

i'm so tired.
i'm mad that people volunteer to do stuff and don't.
im mad that i did TONS of work and was a "co-chair" to the event with Jay yet everyone said he did a wonderful job and didn't say anything about me. i did a TON. i hate when I don't get recognition.

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

i hate when people are like "don't worry about it" but i'm not worrying i just want it planned. ugh

Tuesday, July 29, 2008

bubba's wasn't as good tonight. then near the end i heard someone say that some girl was back there cooking (possibly with bubba) but i could tell something was different.

Monday, July 28, 2008

I hate how things take longer than you guess they will.

Sunday, July 27, 2008

now i really stayed up too late

oi

I think I stayed up too late.

Today

i woke up around 10am. then around 11:15 i decided i needed to curl up on the bed under an afghan. after an hour or so dave came over so i asked him to cover me with a 2nd one. he did and also covered me with a third one. that was nice.

Saturday, July 26, 2008

update on yesterday

after i posted more things went wrong.

Friday, July 25, 2008

the day goes bad. you think it can't get worse. then it gets worse. then worse. then worse.

Monday, July 21, 2008

someone who went to RPI got married. a friend sent me the pictures. now i've been looking at the photograhers pictures for over an hour. i don't even knwo any of these people. the scenery is so nice.

the guy from RPI actually talked to me once saying he was in a bunch of my classes. i said "oh i didn't notice" and he left and never talked to me again.

http://rjtpictures.blogspot.com/ Sunday July 20 show his wedding pictures. the engagement photosa re a few pages back. I found those in my browsing.

update: here's the post where I wrote about the guy the first time around: http://smilincolleen.livejournal.com/262971.html
i accidentally napped for 2 hours tonight. maybe closer to 3. going to sleep tonight is going to be rough. i was going to use the treadmill but slept instead.

Saturday, July 19, 2008

i just added more layers to my hair. it was already slightly layered before. i cut about 3 inches off the shorter later. then i went and asked dave if he noticed that I cut it. He did not.
i walked for an hour tonight for relay for life. it was hot. luckily it got a little cooler by 8pm when our hour started.
i'm sick of people who think they are better because they have a master's. it really bothers me.

Wednesday, July 16, 2008

Saturday, July 12, 2008

i just updated my weight graph file. and i don't even feel like making the jpgs and updating my weight graph website. i must be sick or something. and the graph is even nice.

gas price

this was almost a month ago at Costco

Thursday, July 10, 2008

the slip i wore today was from october 1991. that's 2nd grade. the wedding was october 5.

Wednesday, July 9, 2008

i worked 9 hours 45 min at work today. then i worked 4 hours at home. insane. after my meetings tomorrow and early Friday i'm going to relax a bit.

Monday, July 7, 2008

i couldn't fall asleep last night. so then i came home from work tonight and got really tired. took a half hour nap. except it wa really a 2 hour nap. now i still have to get some stuff done.

Sunday, July 6, 2008

i helped my parents paint timmy's old room this weekend. it's suppose to be a grayish tan or something. it looks purple now though.

Friday, July 4, 2008

i use the treadmill just a little and now my knee is killing me.

time to shower. then off to the atm to deposit checks.

Saturday, June 28, 2008

i was eyeing up my MRI films to see how my adenoma has progressed. once i figured out where the adenoma is, it was easy to find. i didn't have the different years side by side so i couldn't fully tell. it was still interesting to be able to see it for myself.

Friday, June 27, 2008

i need something to do.
we just sleep or talk to timmy on the phone it seems.

Monday, June 23, 2008

busy day

I had training 8-12.
i didn't even get lunch somehow i had get my time in and then in that time i remember what happened someone asked me a question. i heated ez mac at 12:50 but i only at 4 bites. it got dry and i didn't have any water. i was so mad. the walk to the water would have made me late to the meeting unless i took food with me. but i didn't want to do that.

then meeting 1-2
meeting 1:30-2:30 (note overlapping so i actually left the 1-2 one early sincethe 1:30-2:30 one was with a manager that was more upper level than the 1:00 meeting and the 1-2 one was only 3 people versus 10 )
meeting 2:30-3:30 (maybe it was more like 2:30-3:15 or something. because at some point after this meeting and before i got up trackign stuff down someone from my old group came to visit me to ask for help on CAPs stuff)
then follow up on who i have to get stuff to. finally sat down at 4:30 as the phone was ringing. as i got off the phone i had to rush out to get an allergy shot.

i'm starving.

Sunday, June 22, 2008

stampin

this weekend I decided to make some things that weren't cards to show at stampin' up parties. I made 2 different kinds of mini legal pad covers. then i got mini composition books and covered 2 of them. that may seem simple. it took the better part of today and yesterday. well 4 hours today was spent typing up a tutorial with illustrator to draw where to score lines and stuff.

i went and showed my mom just now. her reaction was "why are you making so many of those?"

btw the reason i covered 2 composition books instead of one was becuase dave saw my one and thought it looked nice and said he'd like one.

Friday, June 20, 2008

Sunday, June 15, 2008

i'm still sad and depressed about the pictures i lost. there are probably a ton of things that are gone that i don't even realize.

i don't have my college graduation pictures anymore. i wonder if my mom has any i sent her an e-mail asking.
3 years worth of pictures.
a ton of stampin' up files
all gone gone gone

for the past few weeks i've had some hope that by chance everything could be saved with addtional things we could do to save it.

hard drive

so my harddrive still doesn't work. i still haev it. i want pictures from it.

someone at work tells me about freezing it. dave has heard of that. says you freeze it and sometimes you can get the stuff off of it .

we froze it.

didn't work.


while it was in the freezer my dad checked to see if there was bread. i said not to mess with the hard drive and he said "what hard drive?"
he checked the entire freezer for bread (said there wasn't any) and didn't notice the hard drive just sitting there on top of the boston market mac n cheese dinner.

Giant Eagle

I hate Giant Eagle. I went again last night. They were out of green beans again. I want to eat healthy. i can't. they are always out of it.

Saturday, June 14, 2008

today was a busy day.

left the house around noon
came home around 9:30.

update on my aches and paines

my shoulder doesn't hurt anymore. my feet barely hurt (they may hurt if i have to walk or something though). my knee hurts.

Thursday, June 12, 2008

ugh

i had to leave work at 3:30 so that my dad could pick me up , he could go to the doctors while i got a shot.   then i dropped him off at penske. then headed back to work. i was going to work but no time. just grabbed my stuff and left.     this process took an hour and a half.
then half hour to get home.
ate dinner.
then moved all of timmy's crap into a penske truck. that took until 9.
i did something nasty to my shoulder when i tried to lift up that wooden TV from my old room. my dad commented that he was able to carry it with my older brother (who is bigger and goes to the gym regularly and is a guy).   so then my dad comments that i messed up my shoulder by "almost picking up a tv"   i used the heating pad on it.   ok i guess we were done moving around 8:40 and i iced until 9. then i showered. then ate a snack and it's now. time to do work that i didn't get to do earlier.

my feet hurt so very bad. my right knee hurts so bad. i meant to take medicine but i didn't.

i think at this moment sitting indian style my knee hurts the worst. if i try to walk or use the gas or break petals (i drove to spee-d to get chips) then my foot hurts the worst. otherwise it's my shoulder. my shoulder hurts all the time. my knee wasn't hurting if it's in a decent position.

now i have to make up an hour of work tomorrow. i couldn't make it up earlier this week because dave kept pressuring me to leave right on time since he was fighting getting sick/sick and needed to rest.

edit: the tv had wheels so it was easy to move to the steps. then it was too heavy and since it was at the steps and it's wide dave couldn't even come up to help because he wouldn't have been able to get by it.

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

i got blood work today. my arm hurts now. the girl taking my blood was surprised at how many litlte vials they were taking. and they werne't even testing as much as they normally do. then the ride to work was awful. we were behind this cement truck going extremely slow for entirely too long.
i drove by jason's house today. he was out. we didn't get a good look. we drove around the block. he definitely looked at the car the second time. he was trimming his hedges. he's definitely on to me. i need a more incognito car.

Monday, June 9, 2008

ugh

well 3 hours after the scan disk was going pb held the pwoer button. he disconnected the 2nd harddrive* and it seems that the first harddrive will work.

my mac fan is still noisy. it's still hot upstairs around my computers.

i'm still upset. i'm even more upset because i wasted so much time on my computer and got nothing done that i also didn't get to get anything else done. my to do list gets so big that i don't even look at it.

* the one with the files that i want.

more

i also didn't mention that my mom drives me insane

today was just overall awful

the morning flew by w/o me getting much done. pb had training all day so i couldn't even talk to him. my phone still doesn't work (at work) and my boxes did not get delivered to my cube at work. they also couldn't deliver them today because they were too busy getting ready for the picnic. pb got out of training and was miserable and hard to deal with (he's getting sick) then we went to the picnic and he was so slow and made us leave and i wasn't even full. also i let him talk me into going to the picnic before my 8 hours were up. and from 3:30-4 there were about 10 people near the windows looking out at the picnic saying how it's too hot and that they aren't going out there and that they need binoculars and just pointing out everyone they know and people they didn't know. that made it so hard to get work done. i spent like 15 min trying to reword one sentence. i just couldn't get through it. they were so distracting. on a normal day i could put on headphones but not today because i didn't have my boxes. then we got home and i was hungry but i couldn't eat because my mom was cooking. then i tried to boot up my computer (my one that i was complaining about a week or 2 ago) and it's still trying to boot. every single "file record segment" "is unreadable" it numbers them as it goes. it's been over an hour and a half now. oh and at work my "offer" needed to be signed and turned in by today. well sue had to sign it. i gave it to her on about Wed but she had a question. well she got her question answered. and well now she lost the form. it was due today. i did talk to my new manager this morning and mentioned she hadn't signed it and he said it was alright to get it in a day or 2.

ooo the first file segment that hasn't popped up as unreadable is 33397. i don't know what this means but i just noticed that it missed a number. first number it's missed in an hour. well it kind of missed 2 numbers but the one before it has that it was deleting the corrupt attribute.

i want to get 2.5 years of pictures. i'm so mad. i can't handle this.

3 more corrupt attributes being deleted.


i also forgot to mention that my mac fan is extremely noisy and i don't know why.

Saturday, June 7, 2008

today my alarm went off (after sleeping 8 hours) and i was about to get up. dave turned over and cuddled/put his arm around me. i said "ok. we're not getting up?" and went back to sleep. then i woke up 2 hours later. now i'm behind schedule. i took a shower and uploaded pics and it's an hour later.

House Progress



the house from the front on June 2



the house from the back

House


the foundation on May 25 from the back of the house.

fan

so my mom unplugged my mac on monday because she was trying to figure out what was making her am not come in right. well it was on. she didn't see a light so just assumed but mac doesn't have a light.
well i finally booted it today. the fan is extremely loud. it blows stuff on my desk (stuff = kleenex that is half under my keyboard). it is strong but it's not supposed to be this loud. it's too hot up here for me so i wont even try to get files off my other computer. time to go downstairs.

Wednesday, June 4, 2008

busy

we met with guardian on monday. then last night we met with brace flooring. that was a long appointment. i didn't like it. today talking to my mom she said shopping for flooring is so much fun. she said flooring and lamps are the 2 best things. she's' insane.

Monday, June 2, 2008

Friday, May 30, 2008

very upset with my computer. it just adds to the things that aggrivated me today.

my computer with my pictures and old files and website stuff wont' boot past the windows screen. it freezes/dies. it clicks a lot. dave is sleeping so he can't help me. now i can be mad about this the entire night.

oh now it won't even get past the windows screen

Thursday, May 29, 2008

cat

a cat appeared on our porch yesterday. it was afraid of the camera yesterday. it reappeared last night and spent the entire day on the porch. now it's not afraid of us. http://picasaweb.google.com/colleen.michelle.mccloskey/MysteriousCat

Wednesday, May 28, 2008

soup

today i ate chicken noodle soup for lunch (healthy choice)
for dinner i ate baked potato soup and broccoli cheddar soup.

3 different soups in 1 day. new record.

i had to add pepper to the potato soup. it didn't have flavor this time. last time it was wonderful. i took a few years off eating it because i said it was inconsistent and sometimes not good. i guess it's still that way. the pepper made it kind of better.

Monday, May 26, 2008

i wish i knew what the pay of my "promotion" is when i switch groups. i also want to know what sue's raise would be in june. i am figuring out some money/house stuff now.

i also don't know if we should get a security system or not.

my knee is still killing me. i'm not sure if my feet hurt a lot and it's just that my knee hurts worse so i don't notice or if my feet are actually somewhat better.

Sunday, May 25, 2008

church

i'm going to church today. with my parents and grandma
my grandma doesn't normally go but she has been saying she wants communion before she dies. she's been saying this for about a year. i guess she finally decided to go.
we barely had anything left at teh apartment. well we worked a solid 8 hours yesterday. we got mostly everything into the pod. i did bump my knee on the grill and now it HURTS. it makes me not think about how bad my feet hurt. a bruise is forming on my knee. or well it was last night. i forgot to look today.

Wednesday, May 21, 2008

computers

so there were 13 computers in this house the other day.
maybe more if more ar ehidden in the back room.

but anyway i wanted tos et up my computer on mikey's old desk. there's a big picture on it. my dad said to use the sewing machine desk. said that's what it's for. so i did that evwn thought it's smaller. now i don't have enough room for both my computers (which my mom called nerdy when she just saw me and my dad said at least pb uses 1 keyboard and mouse and it ried to explain that i have 2 computers not duel monitors) so i think i'm moving to the deks. oh when my mom came up she said i was supposed to use the other desk not this one. miscommunication. sucks.

note throughout my years of shaw the school had 13 computers.
i set up my computers. i still need to get pb to fix it so my pc uses my macs wireless

Sunday, May 18, 2008

since i already stayed up too late i decided to do a sudoku before bed.

it's funny how i got a 2nd wind tonight and then a 3rd wind. i'm on my third wind now.

packing

i almost went to sleep at 10:30 but then i decided to finish unhooking my other computer.
i did that and packed my printer and packed 1 box. it's 3 hours later.
i talked on aim for an hour in there though.
i did clean off my computer desk and dnow it's ready to go. i put my monitor in teh box too. all the end crap is awful. it never fits right in the boxes. then there are all these misc boxes and it's ahrd to fill a box so then you got get something that doesn't belong just to finish it. i hate this part.

home

i'm home. so glad to be home. i hate driving.
it took us 8.5 hours. it usually takes us 7.5 hours
it took us 8 hours to get to kates
we had too much stopping for food (and stopping for food and not getting it so stopping again) and that makes me mad. i had to drive too much.

Saturday, May 17, 2008

my left arm and my face hurt. stupid sunburn.

also this is early in the year for me to have my first burn.

graduation

it was so hot.
i didn't get any good pictures of timmy.
i missed Pip crossing the stage
i got sunburnt and th elast hour i had my coat over my arm to stop from getting burnt.
my left side is more burnt than my right side.
i have an odd tan light since i had a short sleeve shirt on but the short sleeve went almost to my elbow.

pb ditched me like halfway through graduation
i sent more text messages during the ceremony than ever before in my life. i think 3 or 4.

Friday, May 16, 2008

we got a stupid 2nd floor room at the hotel.

my parents are here. my mom called me while my dad was in checking in. my dad called after he checked in but before he went back to the car to say roughly the same stuff.

stupid room.

i'm pretty sure i left my sunglasses at kate's

pb yells at my driving constantly. too fast. too slow. pass this person. get over for this person. but don't get over all the time because you don't want to slow down at all. i cannot win. it's SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO annoying. (it warrants that many Os.) it makes the trip awful. he doesn't talk at all except about driving.

Thursday, May 15, 2008

we did a bunch of stuff today. my body didn't really like the elevator ride to the top of the library. pb kept trying to scare me.

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

there's a cat here!

we arrived and kate wasn't at her house yet. we sat in the driveway for 15 minutes before knocking and having her roommate let us in.
kate arrived, we left and went to see her office and lab then went to ABC (amherst brewing company)

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

i was packing. until i found the sprinkles. pb had them buried behind all of his hot chocolates. so now i'm on an ice cream break

eventful time tonight.

well i saw 2 cars get totalled today or well at least 1. http://picasaweb.google.com/colleen.michelle.mccloskey/AccidentNearPanera

my car was almost a 3rd one but while parking i skipped over a spot and didn't want to park there. decided to pick a different one. dave was even like "now what was wrong with that one" and i said "it just doesn't look as nice"
and if i was in that original spot i would have be what stopped the one car instead of the light pole right past the spot.

i took pictures

one guy hurt his head/eye from the airbag dust or so some other guy thinks that's what it was.

this was on 22 by panera. we were coming out of panera.

i was almost parked between the red thing and the SUV thingy but instead i'm on the other side of the red thing.

the lady in the last picture that you can barely see is the one that was driving the blue car. the blue car was at fault.

i definitely saw a truck that had a dent in the bumper like it was hit too or hit the other guy and it just left. i guess the guy didn't car or know that his car had a dent in the bumper. if my memory card didn't have a "card read error" when i first turned it on, i may have gotten a picture of that truck.

the guy in the tuxedo shop says to never park there because there are accidents all the time. he said within the past week there was another accident right there. he said the fence was fixed from that one. but the fence is missing the end post so it must not have been totally fixed.

dave is the one who called 911. there was a panera employee sitting on the bench smoking as we left. he saw/heard it and ran to the car to make sure everyoen was alright. i didn't have that fast of a reaction. i was pointing (literally pointing) at it and stopped in my tracks.

Monday, May 12, 2008

i spent hours tonight cropping pictures for my calendar site http://colleen.akwire.net/_clothes/

Sunday, May 11, 2008

i hate how the pittsburgh post gazette calls about 3-4 times a week trying ot get us to subscribe to the paper again.
about 4 different times this morning i thought about how i was goign to forget my mom's mother's day card and i better remember it.
well what do you know, i forgot it. :(

power

the power went out twice while i was cooking. it came back on after a minute but still.

Saturday, May 10, 2008

i made a workout buddy. too bad i'm essentially moving out in 3 days. (moving out in over a week but will be out of town after that.

packing

i did a decent amount of packing yesterday and now my foot is swollen. i hate this.

Friday, May 9, 2008

moving

our pod arrived today. time to start loading so then i have room to pack more stuff.

anyone who wants to help load up the pod just let me know :)
Some people are coming May 19 after work if you want to join.
my tummy hurts. dinner didn't seem to sit well. now i don't know if i'll make it to the gym tonight. i only lifted weights yesterday.

Wednesday, May 7, 2008

we had our preconstruction meeting today. i didn't like driving home. there was entirely too much traffic on the parkway.

i also ate too many krispy kreme donuts. i did stop dave from ordering 2 dozen though.

i didn't pack anything today.

in a week, dave and I will be in massachusetts visiting kate. i'll miss 4 days of work. and i'll miss 4 different meetings (fun kind) at work.

Tuesday, May 6, 2008

i couldn't find my masking tape that i have been using to label boxes i've packed.
well it was in the laundry basket that is full to clean clothes. no wonder it took me so long to find it. i should have bought 2 things of tape so then i could misplace one and still have one to label stuff with.

Monday, May 5, 2008

nice

i ate a huge dinner
weighed myself
worked out and got naked (to shower)
weighed myself
and i gained weight
that is all
tonight was lots of exercising. still won't make up for my unhealthy lunch and dinner. good thing i don't work that way or it'd get discouraging.
i went for a nice walk with pb and we explored some side streets around here. we walked over 40 minutes. then i went to the gym and used hte exercise bike (because some girl was on the elliptical) she had her ipod but i still felt bad if i turned on the tv so i didn't. so it was awfully quiet for me for 20 min and instead of thinking about stuff in my life i kept doign the math of my percent complete. my guess of my milage i'd have done. my calories and stuff with the other numbers on the display.

i burn 2 calories in 25 seconds.
i burn 2 calories in a tenth of a mile
i go a tenth of a mile in 25 seconds.
i figured out the first statement based on the 2nd two.

i just checked some data i had from before and i went further per min than i did today and burned more calories per minute. hmmm i guess i suck now.

Sunday, May 4, 2008

i went back tot he deaville park gym. i hadn't been there in ages. because the bike was broken.

well now the bike is fixed AND they added an elliptical machine. they should have updated me on this information. i would have gone more.

Saturday, May 3, 2008

i bought a potato masher thing today so now i can make mashed potatoes if i want to. but i'm scared. i don't want them to be all lumpy. and i don't want them to be /get hard. and i don't want to use scary ingredients.

5 years

i've had LJ for over 5 years. i posted almost daily through it all until the last month or 2. i'm slipping up.
i just finished scrapbooking june 8-12, 2006 when gravester and kate visited.
i had all hte pictures glued in. i just needed to glue in the memoribilia and print the journaling. i had over half the journaling typed too. it still took 8 hours today and a few hours yesterday and then dave even found 2 typos in my journaling. i should probably reprint those so it can be complete and good.

it's the first i've scrapbooked in awhile. i may want to scrapbook or i may not. i don't know. should i take it to my parents when i live there or should i put the supplies in storage for a few months?

Friday, May 2, 2008

my nelnet loan is down to accruing 20 cents a day. how exciting. also this loan is now under 1,000 bucks.

Wednesday, April 30, 2008

my dinner/dessert tonight was 1780 calories

last night was more because the pizza alone was 1690

fun times

oh boy

i just took out a measuring tape and measured my waist, hips, and bust.

so my waist is still 6 sizes bigger than my hips but now i'm at new numbers.

if you look at a juniors sizing chart my waist is OFF the chart.

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

nap

i just had a wonderful hour long nap. i've been so exhausted and still wasn't able to get a good sleep in at night.

Sunday, April 27, 2008

i put 53 bucks worth of gas in the car yesterday.
i remember when you could fill your tank for under 20 and i'm not even that old.

Saturday, April 26, 2008

i've just done it again a few times.

and .. i already forget why i started this post.

oh and i'm going crazy. i keep thinking i hear the dryer beeping. i already folded everything about an hour ago.
today i really don't get anything done because while doing one thing i get distracted about another thing that needs to be one. or that i want to do. then then that other thing doesn't get done because something else distracts me. i even forget what the earlier things were i was doing. not good.

Friday, April 25, 2008

i'm gettin too fat. everyday i think i should exercise. i don't though.

Wednesday, April 23, 2008

i can't believe how many days in a row i have things planned. or even i have things double booked. not cool.

also i left work too late today to have time to get an allergy shot before my work dinner.

i have so much over time to put in since i've been working on an internal audit and boy do i not want to do it.

Monday, April 21, 2008

we went to obama tonight

waited in line forever
super long line

got an alright seat
the lady beside me smelled and we just couldn't take it so we moved to the other side which would make it so we can see obama's face. but then we forgot that he moves around when he talks. it was a little far away to get good pictures. i still tried. we'll see how they turn out.

Sunday, April 20, 2008

tonight, i had a dinner with people who are on the iternal audit team with me. i remember all the names but not which person goes with which name.
I just updated my weight graph.
I'm still 2 months behind on my calendar (clothes) site.

Friday, April 18, 2008

the three hour nap that i took earlier really messed me up. i really need to get to sleep
i just woke up from a 3 hour nap.

4th nap t his week. 4th night too

i have to make a wedding card but myt able is so messy.
i also have to make a christening card.

Thursday, April 17, 2008

Wednesday, April 16, 2008

ok i'm awful
i just got an e-mail from someone who i have been in the car with her driving a few times and she's almost killed me a few times.
the e-mail said she totaled her car and i thought "nice" like maybe she'd learn how to drive now. but she just got this car less than a month ago. it's used but new to her.
someone rear-ended her and as a result she rear-ended someone else. so i don't know if they put any fault on her or not but the way she drives i'm surprised she hasn't caused numerous accidents. literally i HATE driving (hate it so bad that sometimes dave and i don't go out to eat because neither of us will drive the 3 min to a restaurant) and i would drive if we were going somewhere together.

then i told pb about her totalling her car and he said "nice" and went on about deserving it because she's a wreckless driver. he said a lot more and explained himself with specific examples. he can comment if he wants them typed.

nap

i ended up take another nap tonight. i think it was about an hour. last nights was longers. tonight i needed something becuase i was mad. still mad though but not about to explode

Friday, April 11, 2008

i think i accidentally stayed up too late.

i'm going to the bank tomorrow. i'm not looking forward to it.

i'm so tired. i brought work home. i didnt' do it. sigh

Tuesday, April 8, 2008

ok
fitflop fitness shoes by Victoria's secret. they say that they burn calroies and tone legs with every step. so i'd say all shoes do that in some way. what's special about these. really someone answer me. but model they have wearing these shoes has mighty thin legs so i bet tons of people by them.
i started off today thinking it was wedensday. then i thought it was friday. rude awakening when it was only Tuesday.

Monday, April 7, 2008

so for work i have to write this guidebook based on an analysis i've never done for a plant i've never even worked on. it's hard work. it's taking me longer than they guessed. they being experienced people at work and they guessed it would take me the same amount of time it takes them. grrrr. and it sure sucks not knowing and not being able to find the stuff because the previous calc notes that i'm looking at are not documented well.

Saturday, April 5, 2008

when we come home, we notice the house smelling. like mildew or something. couldn't figure out what it was for days. i think i figured it out last night. the potatoes we bought a week ago were all liquidy of some sort in the bag. a brand new bag never opened. grrr.

Tuesday, April 1, 2008

i filled up my gas tank yesterday. it stoped on exactly 49 bucks. i even bought gas at the station that was 6 cents per gallon cheaper than most of the other ones around.

loan-dream

i'm so weird. i had a dream that was exciting. but this would not be exciting for anyone else. i dreamed i sent $3 to my nelnet loan. there was this long figuring as to why i sent it. oh man so exciting. (the balance of my nelnet is about a grand)

very odd

so last year i got my mom this gameboy game for christmas. she already had it. i was going to return it. i couldn't find the receipt. i knew teh price and that i bought it on oct 22 (2006). well i requested a receitp from discover. that recipt didn't show much so i never returned it. i still have the game in the box sealed. well yesterday i found the receipt. just magic sitting there on the floor. friday i refound the game.

nap

i just had a very nice nap. perhaps too long of a nap. it was so comfy and nice.

i was so tired. even this morning i couldn't wake up. i just didn't want to. i stayed up a little late last night but also 2 nights ago i barely got any sleep and my body wanted it.

Sunday, March 23, 2008

sleep

i had an awful sleeped. i tossed and turned so bad. i kept waking up. i barely got any sleep at all.
i only wish i had plans today because nobody else is on to im me or e-mail me.

Saturday, March 22, 2008

all of those clothes are now at goodwill. they filled my trunk. i did decide to take one last peek at my dress before giving it away.

Friday, March 21, 2008

impressed!

Once we got home from dinner, we started going through boxes in the garage. We had these 2 big containers (well not as big as those plastic containers you used to pack stuff in when you moved) and we filled both 4 times and threw the stuff away. Then we also through away some broken up boxes with stuff in them. Sometimes I had to fight Dave to get him to not through away some of my stuff though. We didn’t totally finish. There are 4 or so half full boxes that we need to condense, then 2 thatthat have some scrapbook stuff in them that I didn’t realize were down there, and one more big one with blankets in it. Oh and the wedding centerpieces boxes that I’m trying to sell to someone.

Dave said that gram’s table was the best table we ever got. He said he wouldn’t have worked as long or gotten as much done if he had to keep getting up and down going through boxes. We were able to pick boxes up and put them on the table as we went through them. I also took inventory of the boxes. So I’m glad we had the table. It’s always so boring to do stuff down there myself. So in the past I’ve quit after like 5 minutes.

This morning I was also going through some clothes. If you add up the clothes I went through a few weeks ago that I haven’t given to goodwill yet and these clothes, it’s 64 things. I think I need to go through my shoes again.
I hate how I like shoes but then I wear them and can’t walk for a few days. Next time I wear the one dress shoes with a skirt I’m wearing in my walking shoes and changing in the building and changing before leaving too. That would help A LOT.

I’m also giving my wedding dress to goodwill. I was going to throw it away but remembered how they have dresses there and some people can’t afford to buy it new.

at 5pm when i hadn't gotten dressed yet I didn't think my holiday from work would be a productive one.
around 1:00 PM i started watching Men in Trees. I watched 4 episodes today. I guess it was fun to relax.

house

next weekend, we are meeting with someone from Heartland Homes and picking everything for our house and giving the rest of our deposit. It's not really picking everything, we don't pick the countertops or the handles or any of the flooring (unless we are getting hardwood).

seriously

how hard is it to reply to an e-mail with a sentence or even one word? if you have to research something and your reply has to be long and involved that may be a different story but really i'm sick of people not responding to e-mails that clearly require a response.

Tuesday, March 18, 2008

ugh update

i really am very miserable. so miserable that i made phone calls today to movers just to get out of doing work. like seriously i hate the phone. i have no ambition anymore. the one thing i liked my manager made me give up because most groups rotate this task after about a year. even though nobody in teh group wanted to do it. and she basically forced someone to do it. and he complains all the time about hating to do it.

i still have my eye twitch. that's been a few months. it's not as bad lately. almost not as bad since i applied for a new job because now there is hope to get out of the group.

also i was talking to dave asking him why the past few months i'm never fulfilled when eating and i just want to eat and he said that's because i hate work and that's how he was.

even when i'm home enjoying myself i'm not because of the thought of work the next day. sundays are actually the worst. i know i have a full week ahead of me. i just dread the entire day knowing the later in the day it is the closer i am to work.
i had cake for dinner
yellow cake with chocolate icicing
dave and i made it last night.
we got some pricing from movers today.
they charge a lot.
we'd have to pay even more since we're double moving (well moving to storage and then moving to the new place a few months later)

so we might try to move it ourselves and be people to help us. anyone want to help or should i say willing to help? it'll be in mid-may.

Monday, March 17, 2008

i always get distracted with TV and don't get done with what i want to get done.

Sunday, March 16, 2008

update

i didn't sleep well. around 8 i was tossing and turning and super hot. i finally got to sleep and slept until 10:30.
my feet hurt so bad. just laying in bed was a kliler because they hurt so bad. then the first few steps in the morning are so awful
yesterday we finally used our linen's and things gift card that was a wedding gift.

i lost my paper when i inventoried the clothes for goodwill so i'll have to do that again and then i think we are going to drop them off. i just want to get it out of hte house.

i have so much that i want to get done today, just like every weekend. it's not going to happen though.

Friday, March 14, 2008

i just got home. i'm a rebel staying otu so late. i was at kelly's stamping. it was fun.

Thursday, March 13, 2008

i'm tired so i'm reading then goign to sleep. i couldn't connect to work tonight so i couldn't do any of that.

today i ate cheeze itz around 11:15. then 2 oatmeals at lunch (well i didn't finish the bowl) then a bowl of broccoli chedar soup at panera, a panera bagel, and then ice cream. i wonder if that's a normal amount of food or not.

so the 5 lb weights were too light so i used 1 15 and 1 5. now my butt muscles are sore. i was doing step ups (or whatever they are called)

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

pb's computer is having all kinds of troubles. he was booting it up again to try to figure out how to back up the harddrives adn then it wasn'te ven working. gives hard disk drive errors or something. then we go to watch tv and the computer downstairs is broken in some way. he doesn't even know what is wrong with it. he's sad he can't get a new computer right now.

Tuesday, March 11, 2008

my Berry Bliss class went well. I was shocked that nobody ever made origami boxes growing up.

my scrapbook for Betsy has 31 pages. I just took pictures of the pages instead of scanning them in. I'm lazy.

Monday, March 10, 2008

i accidentally made too many pretzel clusters (i made up this name. i don't know what they are called but the are like coconut clusters but with pretzels and not coconut so i assume i can call them that).

i made 66. 37 white chocolate, 29 milk chocolate. i made about 50 cocnut clusters and 9 almond clusters yesterday (the bag of almonds only got me 9 clusters). i made these plus cookies that i'm making tomorrow for 4 people. i think i went overboard so i'm going to take some to work tomorrow for my group.

Sunday, March 9, 2008

pricing keep going up and it makes me mad

i've noticed things at the grocery store being higher and higher every time.

also yesterday at staples the 250 pack of envelopes that was 18 bucks when i went with my gift card that didn't work was now 23.99. still cheaper than smaller boxes anywhere else but it was like 2-3 months ago that they were 18 bucks. so discover being stupid cost me 6 bucks plus another trip in gas out there.



i just made coconut clusters and almond clusters. i hope nobody gave up sweets for lent that's coming to the class on wed. it seems that more than half the people i hear who gave up something, gave up sweets. i want to make white chocolate covered pretzels since i like those the best but i just got aggravated with it all since i was doing laundry at the same time and that's rough work. half of the coconut clusters are using white chocolate. i hope that's good. dave said it would be. i don't like coconut so i can't verify. i almost have enough to take some into work but there's too many people in the group now.

Saturday, March 8, 2008

late

oops i stayed up too late really it's only 2:15

but really that's too late too

interesting

i bought windshield wipers finally. it got so bad that the right one wasnt' working at all. the blade was only halfway attached.

walmart will put them on for free.
the guy had tons and tons and tons of trouble getting the drivers side one off.

then on the way home we were goign to stop at DQ or Dunkin Donuts. between DQ and Dunkin Donuts a guy in a truck almost hit me. then he over compensated and hti the guard rail and got stuck. and hit some sign too. he kept spinning out for a good minute. we then left Dunkin Donuts because PB said he's probably insane and is mad at me. then we came home.
i had 55 small round cheese raviolis for dinner last night. yummy.

well next time i doctor up the sauce i'm nto putting hot pepper flakes in. there were only a few in the entire sauce pot and it still burned my mouth.

Wednesday, March 5, 2008

i brought work home and didn't do any of it. i hate when i carry it just for nothin.

Tuesday, March 4, 2008

sigh

i cooked tonight and it took entirely too long. simple stuff even takes long. i didn't even make the potatoes in the oven, i made them in the microwave.

i made pork chops, corn, and parsley potatoes.

it took a solid 50 min to cook. i guess maybe between minutes 5 and 10 i was looking for mashed tater recipes so i wasn't cooking but based on my recipe searching i just made parsley potatoes. i decided i need to buy a potato masher before i make mashed potatoes.

Monday, March 3, 2008

my arm is really swollen from this allergy shot.

another thing

another murphy's law thing from Saturday
I called the Pittsburgh post gazette and their system was down so couldn't access customer info so couldn't cancel my account. first i tried searching online to cancel it there or figure out how to log into ez pay to stop that at least.
so it's nice and warm.

the snow melted mostly around oru bushes. i noticed we have 4 newspapers under the bushes. now i hear pb laughing. i bet he sees them too. he just got home.

Sunday, March 2, 2008

so i can print from my pc that uses the internet through the mac and uses my mac's printer but it won't print from my mac. sigh

Saturday, March 1, 2008

Murphy's law

today so many things went wrong. i can't even remember them all.

i tried to print pictures from Monica's shower and it says they printed but they didn't. i had to leave so i couldn't fix it.
then i get the mail. i get my spending account card and it says to activate it by calling the number on the sticker on the front of the card. there is no sticker
the fries at wendy's weren't the goodness they usually are, they were raw and greasy and just overall yuck.
then my aunt made a cake and it was red devil's food. i dont' like red devil's food. sigh
then we missed the beginning of SNL to see the nice political skit
then i got pulled over in trafford for going 36 in teh 25 and i was even thinking about getting pulled over seconds before it because i was riding the break the whole way and still wasnt' down to speed even though i've never seen a cop there. i didn't get a ticket though

there was more. i'll type later. oh all that stuff i typed above was since 5pm today.

wow

i went downstairs to eat. i'm back upstairs now and i have forgotten to eat. i did put laundry in and clean up the kitchen.

Friday, February 29, 2008

dreams

i had a few very weird dreams last night. one was where i was trying ot take pictures quickly. my camera was taking like a minute to take the pictures. i hate my camera that way. it doesn't actually take a minute but it takes awhile and i can't get good shots while driving. so the next camera i buy will be an actual photographers camera.

i did take pictures of the pretty snow on our way home yesterday and i kept missing all the pretty shots.
i went to sleep around 8:30 last night. i fell asleep on the couch. then pb woke me up when he got up. but he made me go to sleep on the couch down there. i dont' know why but i did. then he yelled down and woke up up to come up to bed. he sure was waking me up a lot. so i slept almost 13 hours

Thursday, February 28, 2008

and now it's even later. the longer it is until i get into bed, the more dave is on my side of the bed.
crap i was going to go to sleep an hour ago. sigh. i've been so tired all week.

Wednesday, February 27, 2008

sleep

i keep staying up too late. i keep not getting what i want to done. tv is too good and the episodes are too long. we watched season 1 of the wire this week. it was really good. that show is on hbo so those episodes take a full hour. then american idol is 1.5 hour show. then there is big brother. i'm a day behind on american idol. today i watched 2 episodes of big brother to get caught up.

Sunday, February 24, 2008

i went to a bachelorette party last night. the melting pot was very good. too bad i left my leftovers in Jackie's trunk. then we went to a few bars. it was interesting meeting new people.

Thursday, February 21, 2008

oi. i did some coloring

and i'm mad my one stamp is on crooked so now i always seem to stmap my words crooked
and so then i just had to find a fix for my stamp being crooked.

always going to bed too late.
i realized it was late tonight and i didn't do what i watned to do. then i also had to shower. i brought work home but didn't do that. instead of doing the work and the shower i decided to make some cards. i half made 4. i just have to color them. i guess i'll go shower now. then sleep.

Wednesday, February 20, 2008

i always stay up later than i want to. then i sleep in later than i want to. but lately i've been saying up too late.

i don't seem to have time to do anything in my day. a random vacation day or even a half day is wanted. i don't know if i'll do it though.

Tuesday, February 19, 2008

Monday, February 18, 2008

i keep wanting to stamp and make cards. i do not have enough reasons to send cards out. well plus i like hoarding them for myself for some reason.

i started uploading some of the cards i've made to splitcoaststampers. i have 4 i uploaded so far. look it's a start. i have more. i find it pretty impressive that 1 has over 100 and one has 90. they haven't been on there 24 hours yet.

Saturday, February 16, 2008

me and pb just slept 12 hours. we were even in bed just reading a lot before we went to sleep. the past few nights we've been sleeping over 8. i'm surprised we slept so long today.

i almost woke up at 9:30 when my alarm went off but i wanted to get back into my dream. well the dream was different when i got back into it. it was the same setting but the happenings of the dream were so different.

Friday, February 15, 2008

yay it's friday. but not really. i have so much to get done this weekend.

Thursday, February 14, 2008

i think my eye twitches because of my dislike for work and the fairness of it. it's been twitching for like a month. some days are worse than others. today is a particularly bad one.
i just spent forever updating my checkbook in excel. making a separate file for 2008 and then updating so all the future months have the correct payments that are automatic. and excel crashed. it's still trying to recover. i don't think it will. this will teach me to not save it throughout. grrr


*update. it wouldn't recover. i lost it all.

Wednesday, February 13, 2008

i went to mad mex tonight. i need to quit ordering their cheese. it's been way too hot for me twice in a row. now it's time to watch big brother. i hope this season isn't stupid

Monday, February 11, 2008

soup

i made chicken noodle soup for dinner. it looked like a ton. i ate 3 bowls for dinner. pb ate one. then i packed 2 containers to freeze and 2 containers for 2 days of lunches (the glad or are they ziplock continers. the ones that you can also get lunch meat in and then they have a red lid) i didn't even fill the 2 for work. then i made a container for haley since she's sick. ...then i only had a tiny winy bit left. wow.

it took an hour and 15 minutes to make it.

Sunday, February 10, 2008

aim conversation i've proofread 4 pages in an hr and a half brothers and sisters starts in 4 min Rukky G 9:56 hahah you're fast and efficient

me: i've proofread 4 pages in an hr and a half
pb: hahah you're fast and efficient
we went to rivertown. i got the same thing as last time but i got about 2/3 the amount of food as last time. the power flickered a few times while we were there and based on the reaction of other people, it had gone out before that. we were at giant eagle around 11. when we left it was so windy and snowy, you could barely see. but by the time the trunk was loaded, it wasn't snowy and was just windy.

then later the power went out for over 2 hours. i was reading. then i napped. what else to do when the power goes out.

update

we need to go to the grocery store but i'm thinking it's already too late in the day and they'd be packed.
i went to sleep before midnight last night. i slept about 10 hours. i took an hour nap yesterday. 2 nights ago i got 8.5 hours of sleep.

I made coupons last night for SU. I also made pb 2 bookmarks. we watched Terminator 3. We went to Target after WSHI because Giant Eagle was already too packed. Then we went to Panera. They never have potato shoup when i'm there anymore. Luckily i like broccoli cheddar soup. it wasn't filling so i ate when i got home. We ordered pizza from amili's. i'm sick of think pizza that i don't like. luckily i got fried zucchini too. fried zucchini is so much better with ketchup than it is with the marinara sauce that you're supposed to use.

i have so much to do, but i always want to do other stuff. i think i need a random vacation day or something.

i'm trying to decide if i should go to the gym before my shower this morning. there are pros and cons but the main con is that when i do that i usually get lightheaded. my body doesn't tend to like to go in the morning.

i want to visit gram. i'm always afraid i'm intruding on meal time or something for my aunts family so i don't go. i tend to tag along with my parents when they go

Saturday, February 9, 2008

i went to sleep before 11 last night.

i woke up before 8! i had to. i was helping with Westinghouse Science Honors Institute. by the time that was over, Giant Eagle was already packed so we didn't go.

i made dave 2 bookmarks. one with snowflakes for winter and one with green leaves for spring. so now he has 3 bookmarks and he's just missing a summer one.

one of these days i need to finish Betsy's Wedding gift. I have finished what i thought i would do but i added to it and i didn't do that yet.

Thursday, February 7, 2008

wow i am so tired.
