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

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

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

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

3 different soups in 1 day. new record.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

my left arm and my face hurt. stupid sunburn.

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


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

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

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

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

stupid room.

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

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

Thursday, May 15, 2008

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

Wednesday, May 14, 2008

there's a cat here!

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

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

eventful time tonight.

well i saw 2 cars get totalled today or well at least 1.

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

i took pictures

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

i spent hours tonight cropping pictures for my calendar site

Sunday, May 11, 2008

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


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

Saturday, May 10, 2008

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


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

Friday, May 9, 2008


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

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

Wednesday, May 7, 2008

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

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

i didn't pack anything today.

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

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

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

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

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

Sunday, May 4, 2008

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

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

Saturday, May 3, 2008

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

5 years

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

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