i'm getting blisters. it hurts pretty bad. this is no fun. i'll probably be put off from cooking/baking for awhile.
i burnt my hand. it hurts


i just woke up. i woke up by timmy's phone call. at 10:10 i turned over and could have gotten up but i didn't. i would have had 8 hours of sleep at that time too. at 11 something i turned over again. i kept going back to sleep. sleep is nice. but then my day got all mixed up. i was expected ribs at my parents for dinner. then i got the call saying they were coming out of the oven. so i'm messed up. i'm going to shower there before calie's party so i can give my opinion on the showerhead that everyone else hates. i have a bunch of stuff i'm supposed to take over. i'll probably forget timmy's notebooks again. he was supposed to get those from me in August.

pb and i made very good cookies today. then nobody wanted to eat them. they said they'd get fat like mikey. mikey gained 8 lbs since he's been home. he's only been home for 4 days.


i watched all the episodes there are for CSI now. I watched the last 3 episodes made in season 7 today. i've watched it all in the past few months. ther were 23 or 24 episodes per season.

now i have to figure out what to get into next.


i was so tired last night i almost went to sleep at 8. then i decided to watch tv since it was too early for lseep. then i ended up staying up til aroundd 2. i fell asleep on the couch so i'm not sure of the exact time. then i slept until i woke up.

Friday, December 29, 2006


i felt so tired this morning that i anticipated wanting to drink coffee. i even took some instant to work. i didn't have to drink it though. i wasn't tired enough.

nobody was at work.

i went to mad mex for dinner tonight. my nose is still running a little bit.

Wednesday, December 27, 2006

today is my last vacation day this week. it is going to be rough having to wake up and be at work tomororw. the last few days i've been sleeping until 11.

Tuesday, December 26, 2006

i did a little shopping today. its amazing how much money you can spend in such a short time.

Sunday, December 24, 2006

i just got home. t his is the second night in a row i'm up hours past my bedtime.

Saturday, December 23, 2006


oh so our doorbell tonight worked when the first people showed up. then after that it wasnt' working. i dotn konw for sure if they were hitting it right but you'd assume people knew how to work a door bell. we should look into that. what a time for the doorbell to break.


people said they'd show up and they didn't. they make me mad.

4 people rsvped on evite with a yes and didnt' show. there were 4 maybes (2 plus 1 guest) who said they'd come but didn't show. they didnt' change their maybe rsvp but they talked to me and told me yes.
my color printer doesnt want to feed 4x6 pictures in it anymore.

Friday, December 22, 2006

pb didn't get carded. i was with him too. back in the day they'd be carding both of us. i guess we really are old now. someone my mom knows gets carded and he's over 40!!!


i never knew heating milk and flour would make it thick. i wish i would have known that before my first icing attempt. then i ran out of vanilla. i also used tub margarine since i ran out of stick. it was quite an adventure. so on my 2nd attempt i only made a half recipe. now i have all these pizzelles that need to be filled.
making icing is hard work.

wow i'm such a posting slacker.

Monday, December 18, 2006

my nelnet automatic payment for the 21st of every month never gets taken out on teh 21st. well it's only been 2 months. the first time it was on the 20th and this time on teh 18th.
(forgot to hit post on above)

so now i have another cold. this sucks.

Friday, December 15, 2006


everyone probably remembers my posts months ago about being fat. well i got fed up with it, so i stopped exercising and eating healthy. my gut is gone and i basically lost the weight that i had gained being healthy. my gut is rather nice now compared to before.
sealing envelopes is the worst. too bad i dont have a sponge. at least i only have 10 more

Chrsitmas time

christmas card writing is time consuming. what's worse is trying to get addresses that i once had and lost. i stll haven't been able to get a few.

Tuesday, December 12, 2006

this may sound familiar

but i forgot to go to sleep tonight too. that 2 hour season finaly (sp) got me. now it's late. id idn't get to do my updating of my money files yet either.

Monday, December 11, 2006

i forgot to go to sleep. i dont know how ti got so late.
publisher likes to crash when i change the size of the paper. i don't know why.

Sunday, December 10, 2006

i blame it on my oven

i've made these cookies before. now they've turned out horribly. i'm so disappointed.


i keep sleeping too late on the weekends. it messes up me going ot sleep on sunday nights. this is about the third weekend in a row a least that i sleep 11 hours a night on the weekend and i sleep until about noon on sunday. this is no good.

Friday, December 8, 2006


microsoft access is being difficult. i wish i knew how to use it properly.
remind me to post about my adventure today. i'm tired now.

my first live steeler game

I just got home from the steeler game. it was cold. It was very windy. I'm wearing nice boots, wool socks, feet warmer things, 3 pairs of pants, 3 shirts, a hat, scarf, and headband(earband thing). I did have on gloves and mittens and a coat. time to delayer.

It was like 20 degrees with a windchill of 0. the steelers won 27 to 7 against the browns. parker set a record. there were 3 bad calls that ai could tell.

Man it was so scary to get way up to our seats, but once we got there i was fine w/ being so high. You could barely tell.

stupid weather. took us over 2 hours to get from my house to station square.

Wednesday, December 6, 2006

oh and i went to joann fabrics today to buy the 3 string colors i'm missing to finish the last ornament i worked on. they were out of BOTH. they were also out of many other colors. i was mad.

my body

so my scale makes me fat so i weigh myself on pb's scale. i've been doing this for the past month or so. now his scale says i'm fat. i wish my knee would get better. tomorrow it will be one month of it hurting. that's probably long enough that i should call the dr. but she won't do anything. she'll send me to a specialist and by that time it'll be better.

Tuesday, December 5, 2006

this week

i'm tired.

i'm going to the steeler game thursday. i'm going to freeze. i freeze in the mornings here when the thermostat is set to 69. i wore my scarf around at work today. then friday i have to be in pittsburgh at 6:30 am. i wont get any sleep. i'll be so hopped up for going to my first football game.

shopping adventure

Express had tons of dress pants. Then they had this one rack that had short, regular, long for black. They had the same style in other colors but did not have longs. I asked an employee about this and she said they only carry black since it’s popular. Said the unmarked ones are 2 inches shorter than the long. Also said most stores are the same. Said if I call around some other stores might carry gray. They had pin stripe, brown, cream, more stripes, and gray in the uniform length one. Made me mad. too bad i have black pants and i want brown. but i also only have 1 black pair that fits nicely. i wear black pants everday of the week (well sometimes only 4 days) so now i won't have to wear the other black pants as often.

Sunday, December 3, 2006


i'm never tired at night anymore and it's really annoyng me. when i'm not tired and i try to go to sleep i just lay (lie?) there in bed for well over an hour trying to fall asleep. most of my recent nights have also been restless. i don't get into a good sleep until close to when it's time to wake up for work or on weekends after the point that i normally wake up. then it's really hard to wake up. i'll be tired all day at work. i get home and i'm not tired anymore once it hits about 6:00 and i get a nice jolt of energy at 9pm. maybe tomorrow i'll just try to go to sleep at 6pm.

Saturday, December 2, 2006


i'm much happier the 2nd half of the month than the first half. the first half most of my money goes to rent and my dsicover bill. there is no room for me to play w/ the money and decide what to do with it. now the second half is so much fun. i have my car payments, car insurance, other cc bills (from any store cards i have an amex) and also money to play with to put into savings. how depressing that i have to wait 2 weeks just to get to the fun money playing time.


o man timmy is always so mean to me in my dreams.last night i was filling the pizzelles (the ones you roll up and put filling in them) and he kept eating them. all of them.. as soon as it was filled it would be eaten by him. these were the pizzelles i already made w/ gram that i have here that need to be filled.

Friday, December 1, 2006


so i thought my knee was getting better. really it was just because i wasn't using it for 4 days when i was laying on the couch sick. it is killing me now. perhaps i shouldn't have scrubbed the floor. bending my knee, going down stairs, kneeling, and and sometimes just moving it hurt. in case you forgot this is the same hurt knee that started hurting November 7. oo that was election day.


all i was doing was mopping. i have 6 cuts on my thumb/hand near thumb. how did that happen? then at McD's, i got cut getting na lid. that cut is on my pointer finger same hand.

today i swept, swiffered, mopped, scrubbed, then used magic eraser on the kitchen floor. i still think it looks awful. i also cleaned the 3 bathroom floors but not as extensively.

Thursday, November 30, 2006

i'm much healthier today. my nose is still raw. i even got out the cross stitching.

Wednesday, November 29, 2006


i logged onto my bank and then saw the amt. i checked it to my checkbook and wondered how they could think i have 12 more cents than my checkbook says. then i looked at my transactions and i got interest. this happens every month. i get tricked. i never remember the date i get interest on and i get tricked.

famous kennywood

season 4, episode 21. last minute of the episode of csi they are talking roller coasters. they are at some park in LV. they mention 2 other parks. kennywood /steel phantom was one. even though grism (sp) said he holds some record on the steel phantom. i dont know of any kinds of competetions like that for ridiging it continuously.

work internet

so the internet was broken at work today. that's why i couldn't connect to work from home. i've been wanting to check my e-mail. i think they are up now so time to get to checking.


what's funny is you always have 2 choices and for a lot i really didn't like one so i chose the other. but the other choice was also no good.


i went back to sleep and slept pretty nicely until about 1:15PM. i did have the weirdest dream. it wasn't even a nice dream. so maybe i didn't sleep nicely.

Tuesday, November 28, 2006

tylenol nighttime didn't work. it did such a good job 2 nights ago. i slept about 2.5 hours all together. normally i dont even wake up until 8. i figured i'd get up and e-mail work and perhaps try nyquil
since i'm sick i didn't take these pictures soon enough and i didn't take the best poses. you can see some of the ornaments I made. Some blend in. i see 4 on each picture. 1 is the same ornament in both though. in the first one i know because i know where the one in a frame is but it is sideways so it just looks gold from the picture.
the tree top fell off the other night. it hasnt' made it back on yet. it was actually sitting on the floor in front of the tree just out of line of sight of the camera.

Tree from a bad angle because of the couch (note i broke all the rules in the book and used Silver AND gold as dominant colors.)

tree from a better angle but not the tree's best side
almost complete wreath (still needs 1 or 2 more s nowflakes and 2 or so more bells. i got tired and lazy)
a coworker said to me today "don't you know the rules, no getting sick on holidays or weekends, you save that for work days"


how am i so much sicker today than yesterday?
i wore my nice new sweater today and i only lasted 2.5ish hours at work.

it's quite hard to drive while constantly sneezing but i made it home. luckily i'm used to the windey roads. (i dont know the difference between windy and windey i dotn know if windey is a word. i dont think it is but i didn't want it to sound like the stuff that blows outside. i'm tired.)

Monday, November 27, 2006


i think i finished putting the ornaments on the tree. pb helped. it was so funny when he saw how you use hooks. he said that's so much easier than trying to jam the branch into the little hole on the ornament. i didn't believe him. i thought he was joking. he said when he put up the tree with his dad that's what they used to do. poor guys.


i'm home sick today.

Sunday, November 26, 2006

what's a show i should start watching? preferable one that aired the last few years so i can watch teh season over a week instead of having to wait until new ones air. i'd prefer one that has each episode tie into the last like what about brian or friday night lights or lost or grey's anatomy and not one like CSI or law and order.
i'm sick and feel misearable. i think i'll end up not going to work tomorrow. it'll be my first full sick day in 8 months.... the 8 month anniversary of me starting work

Thursday, November 23, 2006


it would probably make sense to use the same order polynomial for the trend lines on my daily weight graph and weekly weight graph. but i didn't. see.

cross stitching

i cross stitched 2 candy canes tonight. one is a mirror image of the other. i also used different shades of red. the 2nd one is too dark and isn't as good.

Tuesday, November 21, 2006

i still need a tree top and tree skirt. and probably some more ornaments.

if i only knew

what i did to my knee. it's been hurting for 2 weeks now. it started hurting the morning of Tuesday November 7. sometimes it is worse than others. going down stairs is the worst.

Monday, November 20, 2006

loans and interest

i was calculating how much money i pay in interest a day for all my student loans. it was a little depressing. then i did some math for pb's loans. it made my interest seem like nothing. then when i realized my interest is still rediculous, it was very depressing.

phase 2*

* or the rest of phase 2 or the rest of phase 1. since it's the same stage as the last picture and i didn't post any of just the ree and no lights

Sunday, November 19, 2006

i've wanted to try to make peanut butter fudge all day but the pyrex dish is dirty. i dont feel like washing it. it's no fun.

Saturday, November 18, 2006


tree so far. i ran out of lights. i have to make another trip tomorrow. but i'll need more ornaments too.

this tree is doing a number on my nails.
i'm going to run out of tree lights


a little more than 1/3 of the tree is up. i think it was a bad idea to buy a tree about 1/3 the lenght of the living room and then halfway from one wall to the next. so about 1/6 of the living room. the tree cut me up a little. i'm waiting to put the rest on until i buy lights. i think it'll be easier to get around all the branches w/o the rest of it on. some things i like bout this tree bette rsome things i like about the old style better* i got the tree at pool city. i've lookedf at a few places and i wa annoyed w/ the trees that have long needles and the short ones on teh same tree. i dont get it how there are 2 types of tree on one fake tree. that makes it seem super fake to me.

* oldl style has colors for each row and you snap them in. this one has 3 parts and all the branches just fold up. but around the base how the branches "connect" makes them a little wobbley.


i finally set up my e-vite for my christmas party. i bought a few christmas presents. well they are silly ones, but gifts none the less.

i'm hungry. i'm trying to decide ifi i should go cook.

Friday, November 17, 2006

i spent time shopping today with my parents today. i bought some christmas presents. i miss-bought a present. ithink i'll go back tomorrow.


i asked pb to cut 2 inches off of my hair. i gave him a low estimate becuase i know he cuts too much from previous experience. i measured one of the strands he cut off. it wasn't even the longest batch and it was over 3.5 inches. i dotn think it's straight. he also missed some hairs. i was touching it up and then added layers. i think i still missed some in teh back. he says it gives it character.
i think i've been a posting slacker. how nice is it to be on vacation today. i got to sleep 10 hours.

Wednesday, November 15, 2006


a coworker told me i can spend the next 2 full days polishing up my report and proof reading it. little does he know that that 1.5 of those days is vacation and dhalf the remaining day i have a meeting that will most likely run over by an hour. i guess i won't take my full 1.5 days vacation so i can get this thing done. i knew i would be at a crunch since i lost yesterday due to trianing that i wasn't supposed to have until after my report is due.

Tuesday, November 14, 2006

i keep getting headaches. it's starting to really annoy me.

i finished cross stitching another tree today. it's the same pattern as the last one but this time i used fabric instead of plastic. now i'm in the middle of another gingerbread man. i dont like this one as much. it's not symmetrical.

Sunday, November 12, 2006


my latest ornament took over 4 hours. but it was rough. it's rough to type too. i smashed my finger between an empty tv stand and the wall about 6 hours ago.

i should probably make my ornament posts private since they are boring. in a few years it's fun to go back and read stuff so i keep putting it in.

Saturday, November 11, 2006

hobby update...again

with my cross stitching, i'll think i'm almost done. all i have to do is outline. then another 2 hours later i finish that. then i spend an hour with the exacto knife cutting out the thing. fun times though. i shoulld post more pictures tomorrow of my newest ones.


i bought more christmas decorations today and it seems like i still don't have any.


i just inventoried all my new string. i did not do my old strign because it was purchased in bulk and doesn't have a DMC number or Anchor number or any brand number for that matter. next i'm finishing the wreath or at least using all the fabric that i have. i will decide if i need more. then i'll finish making the list of the string i need for certain projects or only what i need to buy for certain projects if i run out of time. them i'm going to the craft store to get more fabric if i need ti and then get more string. i barely have any ornaments done at all. i work on them all of my free time the past few weeks. it's almost discouraging. i dont think i'll have all i want done by christmas.


i made my christmas tree ornament into a magnet. i figured hanging a tree on a tree might be weird. so now it's on the fridge.

Friday, November 10, 2006

i was so tired all day today. then i get to cross stitching and i can't go to sleep until it's done. i'm not even tired. grr.

i got another headache. it's annoying.

Thursday, November 9, 2006


today was so much fun today at work. it shouldn't even be considered work. introduce a girl to engineering day was so much fun. some things were hectick but i think that's what made it fun. it was also fun to meet new westinghouse employees. it seems like they all enjoy their jobs so much.

then i came home from work and cross stitched for 5ish hours. i think i'm halfway done with the horn. i decided i'm going to make an excel file of the string colors i have (by number/brand and then convert to the other brand number) so then that makes shopping easier. i've purchesed the same colors on a few occasions. i'll use it eventually but it's not worth it now. i need to buy other colors that i have 0 of.

Wednesday, November 8, 2006

i'm a loser

SmilinColleen: i'm getting a headache and grinding my teeth. this happens all the tiem. i get so excited about my money file
KBRedXIII: hahahha

oh only if money information wasn't all personal and stuff, i'd be posting it on the internet. so exciting. it's not done efficiently. i need somethign better to be able to add what column it goes to. i have a differnet column for each category then sum those. there's gotta be a way that i dont' know. there's probably a better program than excel but i always fall back to excel. even microsoft money didn't do all i wanted it to do years ago and now i do more.


my new hobby is dangerous. i lost another needle today. i think i'm down two. i've only used 3. now i know why they sell them 10 in a pack. i hope i dont end up stepping on it later.

laon fun

paying extra on my loan (since i started calculating it) has saved me an extra cent a day on interest.

new shirt

i got a new shirt. too bad i can only wear it half a day tomorrow. nobody at work will see it. (well unless they are helping with introduce a girl to engineering day)

penn trafford, gateway, and hempfield are all sending kids. norwin isn't on the list. i think kids from 12 districts are coming tomorrow.

here's my shirt (and it's just like all the Westinghouse employees shirts they are wearing and the shirts the high school girls will be taking home with them)

grrr. jesse's server sucks. i can't get my webpage to load so i can't get the url to link to the pictures. the pictures uploaded fine. i dont get it.


closeup of insignia

back (the best part)

argh. i'm just posting this w/o pictures. you will have to return to see the awesome pictures. (i got them to work. but i'm leaving the arghs in here to remind me how mad i was)

and i volunteered to help before knowing i'd get a cool shirt like this. actually when i volunteered we weren't getting shirts. i helped convince that we should get them to wear so the high school girls know who is in charge.

Tuesday, November 7, 2006

i voted today. it was scary going to a new polling place but i did it.

Monday, November 6, 2006


my bloodwork a few months ago had my cortisol level at 35.3. normal is 4-22

website quote 1: stress hormone cortisol, a chemical released by the human adrenal gland when it is under stress, has now been shown to have a detrimental effect on memory. In addition, this stress hormone may lead to illness and weight gain.

website quote 2: Higher and more prolonged levels of cortisol in the bloodstream (like those associated with chronic stress) have been shown to have negative effects, such as:

* Impaired cognitive performance
* Suppressed thyroid function
* Blood sugar imbalances such as hyperglycemia
* Decreased bone density
* Decrease in muscle tissue
* Higher blood pressure
* Lowered immunity and inflammatory responses in the body, as well as other health consequences
* Increased abdominal fat, which is associated with a greater amount of health problems than fat deposited in other areas of the body. Some of the health problems associated with increased stomach fat are heart attacks, strokes, the development of , higher levels of “bad” cholesterol (LDL) and lower levels of “good” cholesterol (HDL), which can lead to other health problems!

i saw something on pbs the other day about working out and watching tv isnt' always a good thing. if you are watching the news and you get all riled up that's nto good because it increases your cortisol level. that's what had me looking this stuff up again.

another quote from website 2: Studies have also shown that people who secrete higher levels of cortisol in response to stress also tend to eat more food, and food that is higher in carbohydrates than people who secrete less cortisol.

carbs are my fav.

and another thing

fox news was on one of the tvs at the gym. it got me so fired up. afterwards pb was all fired up complaining about the same things. o man that o'reily factor.
oh i forgot. pb sai d"you're face was the reddest thing in the room"

i bought gas today. last tiem i bought gas it was 2.92 a gallon. so this time i got 20.316 mpg. my car is supposed to do much better than that. last time it was 19.8 mpg


day #2 at the gym. 2.47 miles in 30 min on elliptical.

how do you get those heart rate things to work. the ones where you just hold one ot the metal that are in the normal holding position. my heart rate never goes above the "below" marker and at one point it said 39. it only got up to 98 once when i was killing myself trying ot get my heart rate on that thing up. my chest is tight. i wonder where my inhalers are.

yesterday i did a different preset and did 2.85 mi in 35 min. the last 5 was cooldown.

Sunday, November 5, 2006

pictures of the rest

finished santa

the finished snowman head that u saw before. ok u bought frames like this years ago. 3 for a buck at the dollar tree. i tried to go back and find them and i coudln't they also had a plastic cover and a better back. if you buy a frame like this at the craft store you get 1 for 1.29. has anyone seen these frames anywhere? (a better pic of the frame is shown in the last photo)

the ifnished snowman that you didn't see before (with the other snowman)

my most recent work of art

i should have probably resized the picture better. it is only about as long as my fingers. and the width of my fingers. i'm not in the dimension guessing mood right now.

more are here

the santa took over 12 hours. the tree took about 2-3 (that was my first one). the candy cane took 3. it was my 2nd one. the snowman was my 3rd. it was harder since my hoop wasn't big enough to get all the edges in it. i made the snowman in the plastic stuff (not cloth) next (no picture) and it was quicker. i also altered the pattern a little.

you know

my new hobby helps me to not be sad about people not posting everyday. i think i went THREE days in a row without even checking. then when i did, i loved it. there were posts. there weren't even that many but enough to make me have fun reading them.

also i'm still obsessed with checking my loans on-line and seeing after payments post. i sent more money that will post tomorrow. this is probably a good addiction to have. then my highest interest rate loan will be paid off in no time. (i haven't started paying off extra on the smaller interest rate ones yet.) pb's interest rates are higher mostly, but his loan websites aren't as fun.


i checked everywhere and it was less than a foot from me when i made hte last post

uh o

i can't find my new voter registration card. it was in my purse for so long but it was too big for my n ormal wallet. i took it out jsut a few weeks ago. where did it go???
the gym was fun today. if they didn't close i would have stayed. i got addicted to the lifetime movie. there were maybe 15 women there. there was one guy when i got there but he left. i guess the football games keep the guys out of there.

Friday, November 3, 2006


i went to crafts stores 4 different days this week. (starting monday)

if i wake up earlly enough tomorrow i might go to delmont to the dollar tree to buy some craft accessoories. i'm also going to pat catan's tomorrow.

Wednesday, November 1, 2006


i went to joann fabrics today. i saw stuff i bought at pat catan's eysterday and the day before for double what i paid. some things were only 1 cent more or 10 cents more. well to be fair the 1 cent more thing was 28 cents to 29 cents. the thing is joann fabrics had a bigger selection. i wandered around the store a few times and couldnt find the pencils you use to draw on fabric. i was afraid to ask someone, since the fabric lady kept talking to me forever. also pb cooked dinner and i was in a hurry. stupid traffic.

on a side note; the dinner was tortillini. it was supposed to be cheese. it was homemade from the italian bakery that is by miracle mile. but it was meat. i was highy disappointed. so then i made a cheese quesadilla. the chicken and cheese one was better the other day. but that one was cooked on the grill. the grill would be better anyway. but i think the chicken was better anyway.

happy halloween

i didn't do anytihing on my to do list except give out halloween candy.

then on the news they talked to some pediatrician and she said kids should only have 1 piece of halloween candy every other day. and she was talking like that's a lot and that's if you want to get them fat.

lab reports

well you know how when you write a lab report and you're on the results section and after liek 3 hours you hate it. and you just want to quit. well imagine doing that 8 hours 2 days in a row at work. results section is 40 pages long w/ . also that it's hard work and you're totally confused. the more you look at it the more confused you are. it makes the day so tiring. ugh

Monday, October 30, 2006


i just cross stitched a christmas tree ornament for my tree (that i don't have yet). i went out and bought supplies. i need to get more. i still need to buy fabric to make my werath. this cross stitch job is plastic. i know you can do fabric ones but i'm not sure how to end those. well i wasn't sure how to do w/ the plasitc but it's plastic so it won't fray. maybe i should read directions.

Sunday, October 29, 2006

oh how easy it is to get up with an alarm w/o hitting snooze 7 times when it's daylight outside.


today after i was awake about 4 hours i started to get dressed. i put on a shirt but left on my sleeping pants. then a few hours later i decided i was going ot the gym and put on gym clothes. then i got home and ate and then showered and put on pajamas. yes it's not even 5pm and i'm in my pjs. these pjs are real clothes for some people but not me.

i'm up

i didn't sleep til noon today. i didn't even sleep until what noon would have been if the clockes werent' changed. go me. i actually only changed some of the clocks in the house so far.

background info: from as early as i can remember utnil i went ot college i only got 3 headaches (i can tell you about them if you want). in college i got a few more. sophomore year i even had one that lasted about 2 weeks.

now everyday for the past week i've had a headache. i quit taking medicine for them. what is causing my headaches? sometimes in teh past week it's been what i thought might be a sinus headeache (right at my forhead) and now it's higher than that that hurts.


the test is over. 8 hours of fun. the pm part was much harder. i didn't know how to do the thermal or heat transfer ones. maybe i'm in teh wrong profession. pb couldn't do them either. the rest were ok. the morning part was so much more fun but i ran out of time.

FE exam tomorrow

i did some reviewing. all the stuff dealing w/ my major i had trouble with and had to look up the equations. when i got to the chemistry section, i got 90% of them w/o even having to look up an equation. i even remember molecular weights of different elements. i swear all the questions dealing w/ my major seem harder for me since i'm used to problems that take a half hr vs 2 minutes and so i dont have the simple equations memorized as much.
i took a half day vacation to come home and study. i ended up staying at work an extra 45 min . then i came home and showered. i think i might nap now. maybe i should eat lunch first. i'm a fatty but i should still eat. normally i eat at work but i didnt want to take a lunch and then have to stay 30 more min (even tho i did anyway). rick says i don't need to study/review. he says dave has the right idea. he doesnt know how stupid i really am though.

i'm home

the flight back wasn't so bad. the hardford airport sucks.

i can't believe how often the power goes out in our townhouse.

Wednesday, October 25, 2006

business trip

i'm in CT now.
that flight was the worst ever. my ears killed me. the last half hour or so were the worst. it took about 20 min after i got off the plane for my ears to get back to normal.
the plane was so small. i had 3 seats across. the aisle was not wide enough for 2 people to pass. it was funny watchign a guy walk to the bathroom and then someone being in it so they both have to back up ot one of their seats in order for the other guy to go buy. the seats were sos mall they looked like miniature seats. the flight was also quit bumpy at the landing. everyone was talking about how it was the worst flight they've been on (the landing was). i've only flown 4 other times so i dindt have much to compare to but some of these guys are in their forties and have traveled a lot.

Tuesday, October 24, 2006


i've realized i dont' exactly remember how to do engineering problems. they are so familiar but i dont remember how to do them. now it's me being scared time.

tomorrow evening i will be on a plane to connecticut then do work stuff. then all day thursday (about 9 hours) i will be at training then spend about 5 or 6 hours doring the whole airport and flying back thing. then it will be bed time. i guess dinner will have to be in there. then friday i work. then saturday i have my FE exam. i need better self discipline. oh plus my project at work is behind so i have to work extra.

just curious

has anyone been invited to a wedding that they barely knew the person or didn't want to go but felt some obligation. they either went anyway or thought they had to give a gift since they were invited?

i had a coworker that complained she was invited to a wedding of her old roommate and that she didnt want ot go but since she had to get a gift anyway she might as well go for the free booze. do most people feel if they were invited to a wedding that they have to give a gift?


man i can't wait until tomorrow. another loan payment posts.

i've got to be the biggest loser ever. i wish i had more things that i could check the status of. i hope when i get my next RPI loan bill that they tell me how to check it online. at least when i can finally check that one it iwll be like christmas.

csi is going to give me nightmares. a rat just crawled out of this dead woman's mouth.

Westinghouse sale to Toshiba

Someone might be interested in these - Post Gazette - Tribune Review

I have not read the Tribune Review one yet. I'm about to.


2 nights in a row we cooked a real meal with multiple food groups involved. i still have 3/4 of my chicken breast left from tonights dinner. iw ould take it to work to eat but i dont' want ot have to deal with the hastel of taking it off the bone. i'm too messy and take too long to eat.

Sunday, October 22, 2006


this CSI episode is going to give me nightmares. also it was goign to me my last episode of the night. i'd definitely have nightmares over it then. i might be forced to watch another one now. i've watched about 4 in a row so far.

Saturday, October 21, 2006

me = nerd

i'm so hopped up from exciement. the excitement is my new money file. i have ti add up all the food stuff and all the loan stuff (etc) and then put it in a new sheet in comparison to what i have in my budget. it needs some revamping since my budget is only 1 month worth but some bills are only every 3 months. on mine i have it divided by 3. maybe i'll make 3 month comparisons. also because you can go shopping right at the end of the month and it makes it seem like you spent more in that month and then less in the following month.

maybe i'll also add a pie chart of how my money gets spent. ooo that's what i'll do now. o man the excitment. i can't even sit still.

Friday, October 20, 2006


i put sponge curlers in my hair last night. i only curled the very bottom. my hair is so much smoothier and nicer today. too bad i dont usually get my shower early enough in the evening to have my hair dry enough to put the rollers in and still have my hair be dry in the morning

Thursday, October 19, 2006


ok this is a felicia only post. i hope i did it right.

so excluding this week because the meals have been crazy at work. i've been eating healthier lunches. i'd take green peppers and carrots with my lunch (if i had both. i run out of green peppers first) most nights i don't snack at all after dinner. i still need to work on healthier dinners. it doesnt' help that pb doesnt eat anything healthy and then i have leftovers forever and a year. he also doesn't eat leftovers on stuff he likes the first time. so if it's unhealthy i still end up eating leftovers for awhile. i've started doing crunches again. most of the time i do them while i watch tv. i brought my weights upstairs to start lifting. i've only done that twice. i need to put together my heavier barbell so i can do things like squats and have them mean something. i walk everyday at lunch at work. so that's monday through friday. usually i do at least 20 min of some type of exercise each day on the weekend even if it is only vacuuming that is hard work.

i need to work on what to eat for breakfast. i eat breakfast at work. i take it in. usually i have multiple honeybuns or something so i dont have to take something in daily. i can't think of what else now but i have to get downstiars. i have food in the oven (broccoli and cheese thing)


yesterday after work deer were crossing the street at the deer crossing sign. it was on the westinghouse driveway. the 6 deer waited until the cars went by and then they crossed. i wish i had my camera. i always comment how they never cross at the sign. some were standing before the sign and some after but all immediately surrounding the sign.

knowing things

did anyone every wonder about a person what it is that you dont' know about them or what MAJOR things you don't know about them. i do. i love knowing details about people and things about people even if they are minor things. i know some people don't care beans about that type of stuff. how can i make myself not care or as timmy calls it being nebby?

aparently i never hit post yesterday

this is not a fun line to read on my student loan website:
Expected payoff: 11/01/20
is it bad to get a certificate of completion for a course and then leave the class? the class was just about to start. the last class. we needed the certificate of completion for our manager so we didn't have to pay back the company.

Tuesday, October 17, 2006


I figured out how I got the big bruise on my knee.  It is from a support bar on my desk at work. I found out by hitting my knee in the exact same place. Timmy would sure have fun poking this bruise. A little touch and it hurts a lot.

another comment

i'm not just fat. i'm gutty. i haven't gained weight. this may seem odd. i've also had bloodwork and i have high cortisol levels. if you read up on it a side effect or something of it is being gutty. it's been a month or so since i looked it up so i forget all the details. i believe i have mentioned this before. but this is just something that shows that beign gutty isn't all my fault. my levels were WAY high. my doctor didn't say anything about it thought so just maybe it isn't affecting me at all. who knows . it' sjust an explanation that i remembered while laying in bed and thinking.


maybe i should give up on aim and livejournal reading. maybe i'd get more done and be happier (happier in more ways than 1)
i was told i shouldnt just say that i'm fat. since i'm not really fat i'm just fatter thanb efore and if all i did was eat all day and never exercise it's my own fault. i was told to say what i'm doing about it.

nobody cares tho so i'm not.


i'm such a loser that i'm more depressed at home than at work.

I think somethign is wrong with me but i dont know if it's good or bad.   Twice in 2 weeks I start sneezing and feel really sick and blow my nose and then 20 minutes later I'm cured. the good part is i did not get a full out cold for days and days but the bad part is why did i feel so sick for that short period of time.

today i ripped off part of my lip. well the dried skin. but you know how it's all dry and comes off easy and then you are at the point when it's not dry/dead and the last yank is the hard part. well that last yank today caused my lip to bleed for an hour and fifteen minutes. about an hour into it i researched on the internet and a few sites i looked at (all the ones i looked at but only a few sites) all said to see a dr if your lip bleeds for more than 15 minutes. it hindered my work for an hour becuase it is hard to type and hold a kleenex onto your lip. it was a pretty stead blead. if i didn't have a kleenex on it for a second there was a huge bubble of blood. then the lip rebled 4 times during the next 3 hours of work. it only lasted a few minutes those times though. of all days for me to run out of kleenexes at work. i walked to pb's cube a few times and grabbed a bunch of his, but i still ran out. it didn't help that i also sneezed a bunch of times.

also i have a gut. i'm sick of people telling me i don't. so i'm posting some gut pictures.

There are some before-ish and then now pictures.last year i had a little gut. i've never had a "flat" stomach but now i can't fit into my pants. if i eat i unbutton my jeans and unzip them.

my birthday gut

note i did not resize the pictures so there is no significance to my huge gut picture being the biggest picture on the page. some might think that some old pictures i'm standing and in the new ones i'm sitting so i'll get a pic of me standing.
Sept 9, 2006. it is hard to tell because i'm in black but you can see how my stomach bulges out. too bad my butt isn't in this picture. my mom has told me from pictures that it looked like my gut was bigger than my gut.

sometimes i'm not the nosiest person

timmy had me beat the other day.

then tonight he sends me this funny conversation. i was laughing for a few minutes.

TENroaches: so your dad didn't even divorce his wife before your mom until you were a month old?
other person: who told you that?
TENroaches: i found it online
other person: WHAT?

then timmy's away message: i rile people up. it's what i do.

well maybe i would be that nosey to look up divorce dates if i knew of people with a dovorce that i thought of on the top of my head. i tried to look up houses of people i work with. the guy with the last name smith was a lost cause. there were at least 10 people with the same first name.

my mood of fat is because i ate cereal a little bit ago so now my pants are way too tight and i'm sitting here with them unbuttoned and unzipped.


mallory just left! she was here she really was.

i offered her some practice candy and she looked confuse. doesn't everyone know about practice candy?

Saturday, October 14, 2006

a fun time Then click on Real Property.


i'm a tag and mood slacker. i was doing so well for awhile. pages are so boring without the mood on there.

my parents just left. they commented on how we have more food than them in our fridge. it's so poorly organized that just having three things seems like a lot. also i doubt 2 of them will get eatten.

i'm doing laundry now. i vacuumed the living room earlier. i was about to do the stairs when my parents showed up.

mallory is supposed to come over tomorrow. what are the chances she will? her visiting isn't the onlyr eason i'm cleaning. the vacuum has been out downstairs for days. i always do laundry on the weekends. but since she is supposed to come i figure it should look kind of nice for her. her mom cleans non-stop so she's always known clean house. she probably won't show though. she'll probably call and cancel.

oops i forgot to post this from about a half hour ago. now all i have left to vacuum one flight of stairs. i vacuumed the rest of the house.


i made a new icon to show that my hair is shorter now. this is after about a month of it growing though.


i added a little tid bit to my calendar site. lets see if anyone notices what it is. it IS little. well 2 things are different. i'll tell you the one that isnt important. i put may, june, july on a separate link so it doesn't take forever to load.

Friday, October 13, 2006

o man

it's such a shame that i had to delete such a funny picture. a friend made me promise i'd delete it after i saw it. i dont like to delete pictures but i promised. man it was funny.

i've watched 4 episodes of CSI tonight. I should be cleaning or something. well really i just want to vacuum in front of this couch. the chip crumbs are really annoying. i don't do any of that because i'm too busy watching tv.

Thursday, October 12, 2006

fun times

you know what is extremely fun.

going to my loan website and looking at my montly payments and how much is principal and how much is interest and how much i still owe. oh it's so exciting right after my payment has posted.


i cut an inch off the layers of my hair. the bottom is still the old length. i didn't want to go too short but i wanted to get all the perm out. well there's still almost an inch of perm left. maybe in a month i'll do it again and then cut the bottom 2 inches.


i already got in 3 tv episodes and it's only 8pm. how exciting. i have time for 3 more.

Wednesday, October 11, 2006


the 2nd night in a row i had awful dreams. 8.5 hours from the time i went to sleep to the time i quit hitting snooze did not turn out to be 8.5 hours of sleeping

Tuesday, October 10, 2006

bad memory

i just thought of something i want to do tomorrow since it's so late now. then i thought i shoudl write it down so i dont forget. as i was picking up the paper, i thought of another thing to do. i wrote that thing down. now i can't think of what first thing was. i've sat here for a few minutes trying to think of it. that never works. it didn't work. i dont' know what i was supposed to do.


the oven burnt my arm. i hate how i always wish i had aloe yet i never have it.


the allegheny county assessment website is addicting. i learned fun things about different relatives houses.

Monday, October 9, 2006


i hope it doesn't rain overnight. maybe i should bring the vacuum cleaner back inside. i hate it though. i have a new one on my christmas list already. maybe if it gets ruined i'll be more likely to make it to the store and actually get one. but i'm afriad it will suck like the upright bagless that i have now. i hate bagless.

i'm obsessed. i still haven't eatten lunch yet. i did eat a snack at dinner time. i'm a big loser. i have such a headache.


oops. i just remembered I didn't eat my lunch today. i meant to put it back in the fridge when i got home from work. i forgot.

good or bad?

i just went downstairs and checked and at least half the lady bugs are no longer there. i'd go w/ bad.


and holiday park just called. the guy won't come tonight. the maintenance guy will come tomorrow or we can take care of it ourselves OR we can wait until the 3rd Thursday of the month for the bug-man (that's what she called him) to come and spray
we are infested with lady bugs. the maintenance guy is going to come sometime tonight. right inside the front door entrance there are about 100. then around the house there are only a few on each window or ceiling. the front entrance is the worst.

Sunday, October 8, 2006


i'm getting a headache. i think it's because i stopped watching TV. I better get back to that. Boy was it joyous to read LJ posts though.

My tongue is only a little bit swollen today. If i try really hard, I can speak almost perfectly.

I bought thread today so now i can fix 2 of pb's shirts and my suit coat (those buttons have been held on by pins for a year on October 13). I'm still not fixing PB's pants but now there is thread for HIM to do it.

It was hotter today than I thought it would be.

I also bought a hook so now i can hang up my robe. i almost bought a desk chair at staples but then the seat wouldn't raise high enough for my liking so i decided against all chairs. I spent a total of 6.59 today.

I watched some Scrapbooking shows that my mom taped for me. On the one show they were amking this silly ice cream cone out of paper. well that made me want kerbers. we went to kerber's. Oh how yummy. i also bought orange drink. too bad i forgot my orange drink at my parents house. i also watched "flip that house" and i was getting so addicted. i had to leave between shows so i didn't end up staying utnil 3am when they stopped showing episodes.

oh the reason i originally went ot my parents house was to go to a home show with my mom. we went to 1 in north huntingdon. the house was $500,000 and we kept finding things we didnt like about it. i think i'm going ot have a hard time finding a house i like when i buy a house. the basement was "finished" it was so funny. it was carpeted up to pipes coming out of the floor for a basement bathroom. how stupid is that. there were a lot of outlets in the basement but there was no cable jack. how stupid is that. the master bedroom walk in closet was as big as timmy's room at home. the bathroom was crazy. the rest of the bedrooms weren't that big but they did have semi nice closets.
oh how exciting. i checked my LJ after less than 10 hours and there are a lot of new posts.

Saturday, October 7, 2006


pb and i bought practice candy today.

i'm also practicing making different kinds of cookies and desserts for christmas. if anyone wants to taste test any with me, let me know or just drop by.

Friday, October 6, 2006


my swollen tongue still hurts. when i try to eat, the pain is so bad that it almost makes me want to pass out. it is a constant pain. when i talk my words are slurred. at work today 2 different people had to ask "what" when i was talking to them. I only talked to 3 people and one was PB. he's pretty good at deciphering me. many people were on vacation today at work. so pb and i decided to join the crowd and we took a half day vacation. the tongue and my cold were my main reason but i didnt' think i was sick enough to use a sick day.yet i thought i was too sick to get work done.

also i'm still getting lightheaded. it's not to the extreme as it was on 9/20 but when i stand talking to people at work after a few minutes i spend most of my time trying to stand and not fall over than paying attention to what they are saying. this isn't good when i am actually trying to get real work help. that was also why i wasn't getting any work done today. i can't remember all teh stuff uri told me for how to check what i was doing and make sure it was ok for this one thing and then if i twasn't do this other thing. i couldnt figure out how to check it so i was trying to do this other thing but i couldn't figure that out either.

Thursday, October 5, 2006

nobody on my friends page has updated since october 2. i can't take this. 1 days is bad enough to go without post reading.


i bit my lip today when i was eating my bagel. it got swollen that other people even noticed. then later i went to finish my bagel and i did it again! i threw away the bagel. i didn't want to be tricked into biting it again. my tongue is already swollen on the same side from biting it yesterday. it's tons of trouble to eat now.

Wednesday, October 4, 2006

i turned off my computer last night for today and then the power didn't go out.

Tuesday, October 3, 2006


two days in a row the power went out here. today it was longer than a second because more clocks had to be reset. today it was while we were at work. yesterday it was a few minutes before we left. it went out today around 10am. the power also went out for someone else in the plan yesterday so its not just us. i wasn't around to spy out and see how far the power going out spread.

Monday, October 2, 2006


i watch tv from the time i get home from work until i go to bed. i'm such a loser. but tv is so wonderful. and veronica mars season 3 starts this week. oh how exciting

Sunday, October 1, 2006


mallory was supposed to come over today. this is like teh 3rd or 4th time we've scheduled and one of us had to cancel. she's sick (cold) so she called and canceled. i was sitll sleeping when she called. now i have to find something to do today.

sleep #2

last night i fell asleep on the couch. i was up an hour later tha normal. then i went upstair at 2ish. i fell asleep and slept until 12:13. i can't believe it was that late. well i got a lot of sleep this weekend.

Saturday, September 30, 2006


my away message said i was tired last night around 9pm. i did manage to stay up until maybe 10:20. i'm not sure of the time but i was watchign 20/20. then around midnight i was really confused and tried to answer the phoen but by the time i said hello, i heard pb saying "bye". then i questioned him about it and how timmy called to say happy birthday. i'm not sure what else was said in that phonecall. pb is a very bad person to get details from. then when pb came to ed i got hot. then he turned on the fan and i got cold. pb told me about this when i woke up. i kind of remember something about it. then in the middle of hte night i woke up a few times not being able to find one of my three covers. finally around 5am i found it. then i slept until 10:55.

Friday, September 29, 2006

i'm so full. i'm so tired. i think i'll go to sleep. all week i didn't go to sleep before 12:30. i'm a loser.

Thursday, September 28, 2006

big loser

i just did 1.5 hours worth of work just because I can. i'm such a big loser.

i watched 3 episodes of CSI Miami earlier. You know I don't even like CSI Miami. I like the Las Vegas one better.

my productivity is unreal

i just filled out the info for my dlel recalled baterry. it's only been on my to do list 1.5 months.

the tub

i can't believe myself. i've never been like this before. i jsut went into the bathroom and looked at the tub. i thought "that's a little dirty looking" and so i got the cleaning stuff and cleaned it. it was barely even dirty. it just wasn't the super white that it's supposed to be. i think most of it was just dust from not even using the thing. but not to worry. it's super clean now.

(I cleaned the shower and the downstairs sick on Sunday)

how often do normal people clean their showers and sinks?


yay. i got remote desktop to work from home. now i can do work from home. go me. now don't get me wrong. this does not mean i'll do work all the tiem. this just means i don't have to go in on a weekend or something to get a few more things done. i can do it from home. or say i waste an hour talking at work then i can do some from home so i don't feel guilty (or get behind).

now this isn't anything new really that it works. i got the e-mail on how to set it up exactly 1 month ago but i never tried to set it up until tonight. but luckily i talked to pb before leaving work to realize i needed my work ip address.

to celebrate i'm off ot wathc some more tv.

Wednesday, September 27, 2006

oh that tom

so kid in training yesterday was pretty sick with a cold. he sits right behind me. then today out of 8 people he had to be in my group and then sit next to me. how long before i'm sick?

*sick kid = tom

Tuesday, September 26, 2006


i'm fatter today than i've been since 2003. i swear the scale has to be wrong. then i tried the other scale.

i'm not writing it down. maybe tomorrow i won't be so fat. i dont' want this to mess up my weight graph.

i only weighed myself when i couldn't get my pants buttoned. well i also weighed myself in teh patns but even subtracting what patns might weigh, i'm still fat. i have dents and red marks around my waist from these pants. i took a picture, but it'll probably stay on my camera for awhile.

update: i decided to write it down AND update my graph.
i'm still itchy.

training was rough today standing. at first i was really tired too. we were sitting and i was tired. then after lunch it was time to stand. it wasnt' fun.

Monday, September 25, 2006


i'm itchy. ITCHY. i can't take it.

double oi.

i think it might be hives. i took benadryl (sp) but i only had allergy and cold one. i hope it works. they seem to be getting worse. i feel all hopped up. i should be in bed.


i have what appers to be about 15 bug bites around each of my ankles. i would say they are mosquito bites but they aren't all swollen. they are so itchy. i also have one right above my waist on my back. i wonder what they are. i also have one on my left arm near my wrist.
does anyone else get sad when they check their LJ friends list after a day and nobody has posted?

Sunday, September 24, 2006


i'm cleaning off my desk. there are 15 tablets on my desk right now. i removed 5 while i was cleaning it off too. it just made me laugh. some ar elittle post it tablets, some are spiral and kind of small, 4 were about 8.5x5.


i cleaned up the clothes off the bedroom floor, vacuumed the bedroom floor, swept the kitchen floor, swept the laundry room floor, took out 3 bags of garbage, did laundry (4th load is in the dryer now), and cleaned the shower. i also worked on making a shopping list. i was disappointed to learn i didn't have a recipe for dirt. so i couldn't put those ingredients on the shopping list. i will be going shopping soon. hopefully in the next hour so i can make it to radio shack to buy a tv antenna before they close at 4 (the one in murrysville closes at 4, the one at miracle mile closes at 5). i also loaded pictures from my camera onto my computerm, balanced my checkbook, and made sure all my bills are set up to pay. i also arranged to actually hang out with mallory this week.

i still have a lot more to do.

Saturday, September 23, 2006


it's way worse here than grandma's house.

all i want to do is go home and clean and throw everything away.

it's probably worse jus becasue of the smoke smell. justin's old room is looking very similiar to uncle bill's old room.

Friday, September 22, 2006


i went to the phillies game. they won 5-2. it was boring. it was sold out and so getting out of the parking lot sucked at teh end.

we got to pb's house. it was locked. its never locked. he doesnt' have a key. his dad isn't here. he is at his gf's houes. his mom isn't here. shawn isn't here. it's so weird. make the smoke smell go away.

Thursday, September 21, 2006


pb is on the phoen w/ his mom . he said "OH NO"
i said "what?" then he says in just a normal voice "Kitty's* dead"

Kitty is his cat from home.

Then he asked how she died but i haven't been informed of it yet. i know she was old.

Dave's dad never told his mom that we were visiting this weekend. We'll be there tomorrow.
i woke up and dind't have a fever. so i went to work. thinking and moving at work was nto a good idea. i left work at 10:45ish. i came home slept, took my temperature, drank water, watched tv. then around 2 i ate.

Wednesday, September 20, 2006


i blacked out today at work. i still don't feel well. i was clammy, then i got lightheaded then i left my meeting and tried to scurry back to my desk before i passed out. i had to crouch down twice from blacking out so i wouldnt pass out.

i just took my temperature. it's 99.7.

Tuesday, September 19, 2006

i have to learn that these windows need to be closed at night or i won't wnat to get out of bed. it's so cold in here now.


oh and afterwork we went to target. they actually had a double boiler there. they also were not out of the tongs. go me.

i came home and made chocolate covered pretzels and oreos. i only had 14 oreos since i didnt' think about buying new when i was out. i did get to cover 67 pretzel rods though. some are in white chocolate and the rest are a white chocolate/milk chocolate mixture.

if anyone visits me they can have some.

can you freeze these like you can cookies?

donated blood

i gave blood today. my iron dropped (didn't even need to get spun). My temperature was 98.9.

I was able to give.

I did not even get lightheaded.

I walked at lunch with pb (very shortly after giving).

also they didn't question my weight. this is the first time ever. they use a certain size bag for 110-119. then 120 and up. well i dont' know they might have a third size. today they blieved me. i gave the 120+bag for the first time

i wanted doughnuts. they only had cookies and pretzels *pouts*

i didn't think it was very crowded today. i told my dad BPMI was more crowded. then at the end of the day today they sent out an e-mail pleading people to donate saying they didn't get the turnout they needed.

i finally unpacked my color printer. about a month ago i bought new color ink for it. well i think i need the black ink now.

o man

my mom just left me a voicemail. as pb put it "she sounds like someone just died" really it was only her car (again...she didn't even get it back). now the car is towed to the dealership. it needs ap art. its the 3rd one of the part they've put in. right before it died the mechanic put the inpsection stickers on it.


aldi's had green peppers today.i'm so happy. we got green peppers, carrots, french fries, some kind of flavored rice, and cheese in a can for 6.55. I hope all these not name brands are good. I know the carrots are good. I think the green peppers will be good. the rice is a name brand so we're set there. i'm making the french fries for dinner so i will be able to tell. i'm only making half the bag. the bag was 99 cents. i wonder what else i'll have for dinner. the oven takes 8 years to preheat that i'd probably have time to make something else too.

we rearranged the den. the big stuff is where it goes. i have to figure out what to do w/ these plastic drawers so that they look nice. i brush burned my elbow organizing computer cords.
today i had about a half lb of bacon, 2 pancakes and 2 pieces of toast for breakfast.

so sad

last night pb couldnt figure out why i was so depressed. then he told me to go back into work because i seemed happy there. i almost did it.
i'm depressed. i can't figure out what to do to be not depressed.

Friday, September 15, 2006

i've been bummed all day thinking about my weight graph

Thursday, September 14, 2006

i'm just a failure

ok i also can't find an LJ setting where i can get it if youwant to post a comment in my LJ that you can actually view all the comments not just the one you are posting a reply to. i used to have it do that. now it just shows one. i never changed anything (that i know of). i can't find where it is. does anyone know?

still sad


the curve is pretty funny that's why i left it.

now i have to start weighing myself everyday to get some more data points.

so sad.

oh no

my weight graph file only goes up to october 2004. how could this be. where did the recent file go. i wanted to update it too. this is sad.


i showed someone i work w/ my weight graph and my calendar site. he laughed. he didn't know if he should think it's funny or be disturbed. he said he'll get back to me. he was laughing alot while showing it to him. he commented on how i need to get on the ball since i haven't updated it since april! so tonight i will update it.

Wednesday, September 13, 2006


so a few weeks ago i told pb how work should have something like the wikipedia and it would help new hires so much and even help the older ones that we ask questions all the time.

then he goes and makes an innovation thing about it. now he's workign on making a wiki and our manager loves him for coming up with this idea. i need to learn to voice my ideas to not him and get credit for them myself.


today wasn't that much better than yesterday. i got to work at 8. i was done working at 5:45. i went to class at 6.
i came home watched TV, used the computer,watched some more tv, and played on the computer.

i've been meaning to do laundry for a few days now. i might wear brown tomorrow just because i don't have any clean black socks.


oh man i didn't post yesterday. maybe it's the fact that i got up and went ot work by 7:45. worked until 5:10ish. came home changed my clothes and headed to the baseball game. well that didnt' turn out so well so we ended up at primantis. pb didn't like it so much. i tried really hard to stay awake on my way home. i fell asleep anyway. i came home and went on the couch and fell asleep. pb kept asking me "shouldn't you just go upstairs to go to sleep?" "or is upstairs too far?" then aroudn 10 he woke me u/i woke up and went upstairs and changed my clothes and went to sleep.

Monday, September 11, 2006


this is the worst family picture i've ever seen. well it's almost one of the better ones of my dad. he almost looks like he's smiling.

oh this one is a little better


we no longer have cable. the put the filter on when we were in vegas. well the filter is so strong or somethign that the internet is really bad and it is so slow that our internet phone doesn't work. then today we got a bill in the mail. we were charged the cancellation fee and also charged for next month with all the cable and also charged the higher internet charge .

Sunday, September 10, 2006


oh and i forgot to mention how the las vegas airport was awful. no wonder they tell you get there 2 hours early. it was kind of nice when they let the people going to pittsburgh bypass the last 100 or so people in line. i've never even seen lines that long.

then my watch broke or my watch battery broke so i never knew what time it was going through the line. and i couldnt tell what time it was on the plane.
the girl beside me on teh plane trip home asked me when the wedding is. almost as soon as we sat down people noticed she had an engagement ring. even after he told me it took me awhile to see it. we talked for awhile. she's from pittsburgh and her wedding is in oakmont in december. one of her bridesmaids was on the plane. somehow they didn't get seats next to each other even though that's what they picked online. her wedding will have about 300 people at it. she was hoping for 225 (hoping that people from far away would say no)

Saturday, September 9, 2006


the guy came to start cleaning the pool so we got scared and left. even though the pool is open until 11:00.

well we were in the whirlpool when he started cleaning the pool. we were in the pool when he started organizing all the pool chairs. the pool was freezing. the hotel claims to have a heated pool. if you touched the lights under the water they were a litte warmer. maybe the pool would have been super freezing w/o those lights. the lights in the whirlpool were not on so at first we thought it was turned off or not working.
i'm fat. pb keeps making fun of me.


i never get up to pee in the middle of hte night. sometimes i do if i've slept 12 hours. but even with that i probably only have to wake up to tinkle once every couple months. well last night i got up TWICE to tinkle. that's a record for me.

Friday, September 8, 2006

class is over. now time to do stuff. people asked me how long i worked at westinghouse. i said about 6 months. they all asked where i workede before then. nobody seemed to think i was in school right before then. I'M OLD.

Thursday, September 7, 2006

i'm so tired now. i spent a buck and got 6.50 but then pb told me it's not any fun to just stop. so i lost it all. i also lost 20 cents in the nickel machines. but the monorail was expensive over to there.
it's only 8:48 here. it feels like it's way past my bedtime. i just got back from dinner with the group. it was expensive. it kind of tasted ok. everyone liked how fancy it was. now pb wants to go to the strip or something.

day 1

of training is over. it was pretty fun doing example problems and trying out a new version. i'm still mad my last problem didn't turn out right. the guy in charge even checked over everything and it was all input correctly... so why isn't the answer correct. he said it must be something that i can't see. jeeze. i wanna know what it is.

big brother makes me so mad. i can't believe that endurance competition.

fun day at work

today at work nothing worked out right that i was working on. i had to try to figure out where the errors were coming from. i'm probably 6 hours behind where i shouldl be but today was so much fun. it wasn't boring.


how much spending money do you think i will need in Vegas. I'm arriving late Wednesday. I have training classes during the day on Thursday and Fri and I fly out on Sunday.


i just rotated my computer desk 90 degrees clockwise. now i can lean against the window and admire the nice outside. this is such perfect weather. i could also spy on the neighbors easier now.

Monday, September 4, 2006


i went to sleep at 1:13am. i woke up at noon. pb tried to get me to wake up at 9, at 10, and at 11. at 11 i was so going to wake up. i only closed my eyes for a few minutes. then at 11:57 he came back in and woke me up.

Saturday, September 2, 2006

the cake

i got home from work and used the computer for a few minutes then went ot sleep. 5 hours later I woke up. It was 9:30. then i used the computer for a while then watched 7 episodes of Bones.Then I played some gameboy and headed back to bed. pb tried waking me up at 9:30 but i wouldn't have that so then he woke me up at 10:30

Friday, September 1, 2006

now i know y it is SO hard to wake up to get to work at 7 now. it's way too dark. it's only going to get worse. this is no good.

well i'm gonna play some gameboy and go back to sleep. pb slept fromm 4 til 4 so i think he's staying up.


my mom tells everyone how dave and I are going to Las Vegas next week and she'll be disappointed if we come home and we aren't married. then she said "how many mothers want that?"
it's firday night. we should have done something fun but instead at 4:30 we went to sleep. i woke up now even though after sleeping that long i was trying to sleep the night.

Wednesday, August 30, 2006

birthday cake

I forgot to mention the birthday cake we got my dad said "Happy Birthday BigJCJC" I took a picture of it. It's still on my camera.

veronica mars

i can't wait until veronica mars starts again. too bad it's still over a month away. i have a borrowed season 1 dvd here. boy is it good. i watcched deleted scenes tonight first. someof them i didnt know which episodes they went with so they weren't as good. then i watched the episode called "leave it to beaver" it made me cry even though i knew what was going to happen.
i'm wondering if the wireless thing in my computer is broken because i can never stay connected.

today was a long dayi even slept in until 8.

Tuesday, August 29, 2006

i stopped at subway today and showed mallory my ring. she's busy now with school and work.

Monday, August 28, 2006


nobody responded to any of my long LJ posts so maybe i shouldn't be so descriptive.

i'll give it another try.

today i slept in until 7. I got to work at 7:45. i forgot to walk at 11:30 so I ate lunch quickly at noon and then walked afterwards. I worked until a little after 4 and we headed to Kenny Ross to drop Dave's car off. My mom met us there and picked us up. We went back to their place and watched some TV until my dad got home. Then we left in my car. He had my car at work. as soon as we got home we made rotelli with meat sauce. we have just enough left to have some in our lunches tomorrow. well we both kind of stopped eating to make sure we had enough.

We watched 1 episode of Bones then I gave Dave a haircut. I showered and now I'm here posting.

I might get to go to Kansas City, MO for a SWE conference in October. My manager talked to me today about my interest in going. I was asked if i had interest. I just didn't think up about the conference on my own. I learned today I'd have to make a trip report for the conference. I also learned that I will have to make a trip report for my Radtrad training in Las Vegas next week. I still need to find out what a trip report consists of and the format and style of Westinghouse.

Sunday, August 27, 2006

another thing tonight

at the tail end of dinner, we were really low on ketchup. i said it was time to get the spare out. nobody believed me that i bought a spare. we couldnt' find it in the cupboards. dave and my mom say they checked every cupboard. i said it would be hidden in the back behind things. they couldnt find it. i found it hidden behind the rice krispie treat box. well i didn't find it until i was going to eat some leftovers a few hours later. but i knew it was there. sometimes my memory is right.

oh and

last night the pain of my ring being too tight woke me up in the night. i couldnt 'geti toff so i kept going back to sleep. i couldn't get it off for about an hour after waking up. i couldn't get it on again utnil about 5 hours after i woke up. well maybe i really COULD have if i really reallly really pushed. i did not want to do that.


Today I went into work for 4 hours. Then I went and had my ring resized again. I also talked to them about mothers rings since that’s what Dave’s mom wants for a gift. I can’t believe she’d ask for such an expensive gift but I decided to ask while I was there. I ended up killing enough time that it was ready. They tell you three hours. I didn’t want to have to leave and come back. It was ready after an hour.

Then I came home, cleaned the kitchen, did laundry, and cooked dinner. I invited my parents over for hot dogs and hamburgers and roasted potatoes. Earlier in the week I originally wanted to have work people over. But then I knew I was so busy I wouldn’t have time to clean for them since they’ve never been here, I thought it should look nice. So then I invited my parents over. Originally I told them 1. but then I changed it to come at 5. Next time I’m cooking, I’m not going to do laundry at the same time. It wasn’t any fun. I got my dad a birthday cake. I only thought of it yesterday. He said he guessed I’d have a cake. I asked how he knew when I didn’t. He said he thought that’s why I invited them over so close to his birthday. I bet if I didn’t have a cake he’d be disappointed. Dave isn’t a big fan of cake and I eat like a bird so I saved me a piece and sent the rest of the cake home with them. It was three layers. 2 of chocolate and 1 of yellow. I only like yellow anyway. I didn’t order it in advance and my dad likes fudge icing. That was the most yellow I could get and have fudge icing. It was the hugs and kisses one so it had the white icing too in stripes. They stayed for a few hours and talked. While my mom was here she wanted to check her e-mail. I was downstairs talking to my dad. After about 20 minutes I wondered what she was doing. Finally she came down and said she looked at her church website and learned stuff looked so different on my computer so she started updating her website. I was telling my dad about how Westinghouse does things. He was surprised we get paid straight overtime once we finish our “casual overtime.” But he was also surprised we don’t document how much time we actually work a week. I said we only put down 40 hours unless we get our special permission to put down OT.

A new guy started in my group to replace the girl that quit at the beginning of July. So he didn’t even apply with Westinghouse until July. Then he had 2 interviews and was given an offer all within 2 weeks. Then he started 2 weeks after that. That’s all the time the background check took. He was surprised at how long I took. He graduated from Pitt this past May.

So my mom’s van has kind of been in the shop since April 20. She had it back for a little while while she waited for a part. It used to be drivable. The mechanic keeps putting new parts in and making it worse. Now it’s not even drivable. He has to take it to Kenny Ross Ford for something since he messed up. He has to have it towed there. My mom is hoping to have it this week. If not she said she’ll just have to quit her part time crossing guard job. She said they can’t afford a new car now. My mom feels awful borrowing my car. We can make due with 1 car. But Dave never works Overtime so if I ever want to I have to know in advance and drive separately. He won’t really stay late (he’s ahead of schedule with his work). He also won’t come back and pick me up. I have a TON of work to finish in the next month. All for 1 project. I’m a little behind and we started it over a month late so we’re cramming a lot in. I’m also helping the new guy get all the training and everything he needs. I remember when I started having a million questions, so I’m trying to help and tell him things so he doesn’t have to go wondering for months like I did. Some new hire things it’s hard to know unless you just went through it.

should i post like this often?


Friday night I slept 11 hours and 45 minutes.

Saturday we tried making an appointment for Dave’s car. We also tried to do this Friday. Nobody ever answered the phone. We tried going up to see if they could fit him in. They couldn’t because the guy that would check out the electronic seat is only there Mon-Friday. He was going to make the appointment for Monday but we can’t since I lent my parents my car this week until my mom’s van is fixed. She’s a school guard for a month or so until they find someone. It’s not where she used to be so she can’t walk there.

Then we went to Ponsi’s to get some insoles put back in my shoes. That took over an hour.

Next Dave went home and I dropped in on my parents to help them plant trees. They did not know I was going to do this. I even bought a change of clothes. I knew my mom said she was worried about my Dad doing it. Well they are paying to have the hemlocks put in but they were planting some shrubs. I helped with that. They had just gotten home from buying the plants and dirt when I got there. They were going to wait until it got. My legs are a little sore today. I wasn’t really heavy enough to stomp on the shovel to get it down in. So I used this other tool that I keep forgetting what it is called (maddock or mattock or something like that). I got so sweaty that I showered at my parents house and then left there by 5pm.

I came home and ate a little since I hadn’t eaten since breakfast and that wasn’t much. I felt a little weak from all that hard work and lack of food. Then we went grocery shopping. I think I just watched TV after that.


Friday I got to work at 7. I left at 5pm. I also worked through lunch. I went right to a jewelry store to check into getting my ring resized. They could do it. Next I went to Kohl’s to get my dad his birthday present. Then we went to Olive Garden for a little engagement dinner celebration. We hadn’t had time since Sunday to do that. Then at 8PM we went and picked back up my ring. Well the worker miss-sized me and it was too small by .5. I wasn’t sure if I could live with it or not. But it was so tight in the mornings I couldn’t take it. (I took it back today to be resized back up. But now the band is way thinner :( )


Thursday I slept in and got to work at 8. This was a planned sleep in because the Engineering Services Picnic was Thursday night and I was on the committee to help plan/decorate/etc. I left work at 2 to help with that. At 10 pm I gave up waiting for people to leave so I could clean up. Normally I am in bed by 10 and play gameboy until about 11. They bought way too much beer, pop, and snacks so I took some home with me.

Monday, August 21

i just sent Melissa an e-mail and Dave said I should post things like that in my LJ. So I'm going to break up the e-mail and make a few posts.

I invited myself to my parents for dinner because I loved what my mom was going to make. She made the mistake of telling me she was going to cook it. She didn’t seem to mind though.


people in the jewelry store are so impressed by the quality and clarity of my ring. and by people i mean 4 people (or was it 5).
we canceled our cable and our replay TV. i'm not sure how much money will be saving. i know replay tv was 13 bucks a month. we had digital cable and had 2 boxes before. i hope we still get local channels without the cable. i wonder if there was a basic package like in Troy that you could get for 7 bucks. it should at least be saving 60 minimum and that should help.


my parents were here 2.5 hours for dinner. before they got here i called them twice telling them about things i didn't have but they might want. both items i don't use and neither does pb really. lettuce and rellish. my dad expected a cake. he thought there would be one since this was so close to his birthday. i can't believe that. i thought i was so good coming up with the idea 2 days after inviting them.

i'm so old

i forget to eat. and sometimes i forget that i ate.

friday at 9am i realized i hadn't eatten breakfast. then i went back to my cube. i seem to have forgotten to eat. at 10:30 i e-mailed my mom telling her how i forgot to eat. i was going to eat right after i sent the e-mail but i forgot.

Saturday, August 26, 2006


i keep waking up in the night because of my ring being too tight. i can never win. the jewelry place doesn't open until noon today. i called yesterday and the lady that answered said i'd have to talk to the manager about getting it resized free of charge since i just had it sized there. i got the feeling that they wouldn't do it and i'd have to complain like nobodies business. the thing is i wanted a 6 and the sales lady kept teling me a 5.5 would be the best and i would be so happy with it after i got it. i kept saying "i dont' know"

update: also she said it's guaranteed for 30 days. she said that right after i said i thought the 6 would be better.


i'm so depressed. i keep realizing how i'm spending beyond my means. i can't wait until this furniture is paid for. but i have a feeling i'm in too much of a bind before that point. pb's depressed that of his 700 loan payments about 500 of that is interest or some crazy amount like that.

i need a boarder to live in the 3rd bedroom here. i should try to sell the old 27" tv, the end table/lamp from walmart, and the coffee table we spent 80 bucks on and used for 3 months. even this dresser i have sitting here from target.

my mom told me i should get married in vegas (next month when i go) and then just have a reception back here.

gram thinks i'm rich now (vs poor when i'm at school). she has it backwards. but she stopped giving me money here and there. i saw her give timmy money at the family reunion last week.

go me

i surprised my parents today by showing up to help them plant bushes. there weren't as many as i thought. i even took a change of clothes. i didn't expect to get so sweaty but i took a shower there afterwards.
so i've been so busy that my new ram was delivered like 3 days ago and i haven't put it in yet.


we slept about 10 minutes short of 12 hours last night.

Friday, August 25, 2006

i got my ring resized. pb's too paranoid now i'm paranoid. i dont like being paranoid. it makes me think . "pretty...or is it?"

(for those of you that don't know, i wouldd always say pretty looking at my ring prior to resizing)

Thursday, August 24, 2006


i want to have a picnic saturday. i'm afraid this is too short of notice. if you read this tell me if you would or would not be able to come. i'm not "planning" it yet because i don't want to be disappointed if nobody is available. make sure you let me know if you are or aren't


today at hte picnic word got around that i got engaged. people congratulated me. pb was beside me. they didn't realize i was engaged to him. he even said at one point "i think they are missing part of the equation"

Wednesday, August 23, 2006

i just made 2 new LJ icons

one was just my aim one. it was small and i realized it wasn't at that good of an angle so i made another. since pb got me the paid membership for valentine's day i might as well use usome of the 34 pics i'm allowed to upload.


i'm so tired. i kept having nightmares last night and thus didn't get much sleep. i wokred 10 hours and went to class for 1.5 today too. well i also worked through lunch.

so i learned that i can get my ring resized for free from the company the ring is from but it will take 2 weeks. i think it'll be super nice a half size smaller. but it's super nice to look at now. i can't decide what to do. i dont know how long a resize would take a store around here or how much it will cost. perhaps i should find that out before i get all bent out of shape of having to part with my ring for awhile.

Tuesday, August 22, 2006


i keep getting distracted by this super nice ring. at work it just grabs my attention and i stare at it. i swear i don't get any work done any more.


how come everyone says "nuh uh" when i tell them pb proposed via aim?

Monday, August 21, 2006

i only specifically told 2 people at work. it's awkward to jump out and say it.

Sunday, August 20, 2006

facebook has been updated

Polah Bea (8:58:35 PM): better update our facebooks
SmilinColleen (8:58:42 PM): good idea
yes he asked me online. we talked about it years ago saying how funny it would be to ask online since we always talked on aim especially when we first started going out. sometimes we were in the same room and still talked on aim.

more info

our family reunion was yesterday. too bad he didnt' show up at the reunion to do it. he did not go, because he didn't want to. our last family reunion for that side of hte fmaily was 15 years ago.

the ring arrived yesterday. i have no idea when the wedding will be yet. i didn't pick it out or know what it looked like. he knew what style i liked and i did specify i wanted 6 prong. it's platinum. he had the ring delivered to work. during the family reunion he went to pick it up. he knew it was there because of tracking it online. i'm thinking about a wedding next october or november but who knows. i dont know how people pick their dates or know their dates right off the bat. i also don't know where we should have the wedding.

when i told my dad about it and when pb got the ring. he commented how he could have showed up at the family reunion and asked me. that would have been embarrassing.

post other questions you may have so everyone else benefits from my answer on here.

I'm engaged

Polah Bea (8:28:32 PM): will you marry me?
SmilinColleen (8:28:55 PM): yes

check his post for some more details

Update: then after that aim convo he said "then i guess you want this ring?" and opened his hand.

Saturday, August 19, 2006


pb was stupid putting up the mirror. he hid in the closet after i yelled at him.  come over if you want to see some extra holes in our wall.

Friday, August 18, 2006


i'm laying in bed and then i hear the bathroo door open and close. i ask dave "did you just read my live journal?"  "uh huh. hey this bathroom door is broken"

he's not on top of things like i am. it took him a whole day to read my live journal/notice the door.

then i told him i was comign to post this becuase it was so funny. then on my way to my comptuer he jumps out of the bathroom and scares me.

Thursday, August 17, 2006


i'm a nerd. my nerdiness level increased today with my new knowledge. it would have increased yesterday if i paid attention to my class.

i need mike to correct my door terminology here

i just noticed today 2.5 months after living here that the main upstairs bathroom doesnt close properly. the part on the door (by the handle) that goes in and then goes out ot make the door "closed" is about a centimeter lower than the little whole in the wall. the little metal plate in teh frame is set too high.

my dad informed me the first weekend he was over after i lived here about the den (middle sized bedroom) closet door being the same way. well it's only set about 1/4 of an inch too high here. 

the door from the garage has something wrong with it too. i think the hole is set too deep or something. it's sooooo hard to get it to click into place.

update with the terminology from mike: the part of the lock that sticks out is the latch. the metal part on the jamb of the door that covers the hole is called the strike.

Wednesday, August 16, 2006


my cholestorl is 220 so i told pb i'm going on a diet, which is only eating 3 snacks a day. he asked "plus 3 meals" and i said yes.  he didnt' think that was much of a "diet"

really i said the diet thing cuz i have this gut  not cuz of the results.

also i have high cortisol. i'm not sure what it is. my mom looked it up and was getting all worried. my doctor didnt' tell my anything about any of my bloodwork results being abnormal.

Tuesday, August 15, 2006

i learned today that my laptop battery was recalled.

yesterday i ate a wrap. it was my first one ever. it was the worst think ever.

Monday, August 14, 2006

i'm cold right now from the a/c here but it's no where near as cold as it was today at training.

Friday, August 11, 2006

i need to amke a new LJ icon. my hair is shorter now and so my icons seem so out of date.

loser = me

i put clothes in the washer before i left today. dave was still home. i made sure all the clothes i put in went in the dryer of mine. dave was to put them in the dryer then fold them/ hang them up. well he hung up a few things and just threw the rest of my stuff in teh laundry basket. ther were 5 shirts in there that i hang up. 4 of which i wear to work. well they are more wirnkled than i've ever seen clothes before.there were also 2 tank tops and a pair of pants that are all wrinked now.  he thought that because they are tank tops they don't need folded. what does he think i do with them.  it's not like i can wear them now w/o rewashing them or ironing them or something.  things just make me so mad. earlier today at lunch everyone at work even agreed how he was in teh wrong and my manager said they gave me permission to beat him up.  i'm sick of it. can't have manners /common courtesy and be smart enough to know better.  maybe someday i'll explain lunch. i dont feel like typing it all now.
i'm so exhausted from walking in teh woods tonight. timmy took me crazy ways in the beginning. i didn't get to warm up walk in the woods.

y is it that i get in th emost mood to exercise right after i take a shower. then i know i wont' exercise becuase i dont want to have to shower again. i need to start eyeing up my gut pre-shower and exercise then.

we did not walk at lunch today.


i'm stressed because of work.  well my one code got an error. it's obsure and i have no reason why. i could spend 5 more minutes fixing it since i now have it deduced. pb wouldnt' stay any longer. it's not even like i'm going to be late or anything with any of the work. i'm just mad that i changed something in the code and the error is in anothe part. it's in the title it outputs. i dont' know why. i'm just gooing to change it. but the titles are identical except 100% becomes 80% becomes 50%  and they all work but the 50% ones. it just burns my toast.  i would be fine if i was able to stay and change it.    i also have class at 6. i don't want to go. i may skip again. 

*i'll probably be back to normal in a few minutes. i just got home now so i'm all riled up.

oh and is it sad that today i went from pj's to gym clothes to pool clothes to pjs? and i'm in my pjs and it's not even 6pm.
gym and pool in one day. amazing. too bad it was more jagging around in the pool than exercising.


pb made me pancakes for breakfast.
why can't pb just like his job?

calendar site updated
did anyone see me on any of those recent days that i'm missing and then happen to remember what i was wearing?


my gut is so big that i not only unbutton my jeans to sit down but i unzip them too.

here's a pic of me 4 days short of a year ago in shorts that are no where even close to fitting me now.

felicia has the same scrapbooking style as maggie. one may wonder what that is. it's more you put things helter skelter instead of exactly square and perpendicular to the edges. they also cut around the picutres instead of leaving them square or at least mostly there. there is more to it but nobody really cares.

timmy's garbage can.

last night i had a dream about timmy's garbage can. i told felicia about it and she said it was really weird. there was also a new garbage can that was similiar to his now. it only had an eye on it though. it did not have the face. i think it had the feetish things though. (i can't remember in the dream what was there and i can't remember for sure waht timmy's looks like. it sure was yellow in the dream. the new one was too.  maybe he'll take a picture of it for me to post.


today felicia came over and scrapbooked.we traded supplies then made pages. i can't* find my exacto knife. then we went to pat catans and i bought ink (for stamps but i use it to make paper edges pretty. i need a lighter. too bad i gave all my lighters away. i should get some matches too. if the power goes out we're out of luck here. i also need batteries for my flashlights.  then dave and i went for a 36 min walk. today was the 6th day in a row. i barely got any scrapbooking down. i spent more time going through my stuff to show her.

* the first time i typed that it was cnat'. i even posted it. dave read it. he made fun of me. now i fixed it.
