7:32 pm - You know what I hate....
i  HATE  my JoB!!!

WhY???

Well I put in my request forms for time off in July (Back in May is when I turned them in) and they got DENIED.....with no real reason for them to be denied! Can I say I hate this new Admin. Manager?! I had good reason to need those days off. My brother's wedding and I am heading away for my birthday. It pisses me off. Never have I had my request denied in the year and half I have been there. I don't call out of stupid reasons, in fact the last time I called out was when my hubby got shot. I even worked after my visit to the ER...I came to friggin work with a stomach ulcer, a very painful one at that! I always show up to work when scheduled and I haven't requested time off since LAST year!! 

I need to look for a new job, you know it's time to leave when the job you once loved becomes something you dread even the thought of going there.

I am thinking I will start looking and try my damnest to stay until the next two mass receivings are over. That is where the good money and over time are, of course it also comes with HARD physical labor...but that's the price you pay. To bad the next mass receivings are in driving distance of my store....no hotel and paid meals for me this time :( Now I would be happy just to be sent around to do mass receivings...of course the hard physical labor would eventually kill me! So it ain't all that bad.......J/K

current mood: pissed off

7:19 pm - Survey 1

Has anyone ever told you you have pretty eyes?
I have been told I have beautiful eyes and it made me feel amazing!

What did you do today?
Woke up, had a little fun....remembered it was trash day so the hubby and I ran around the house (flight of the bumblebee style) to get the trash out just in time. Hubby surprised me by taking me out to lunch. Then we went to a gun shop. Next we made a stop at the vet, then did some shopping. After that we went to another gun shop. (I think I am getting myself the Walther P22!) Then we went on a long walk.

How many different people of the opposite sex have you cried over?
There has been 3.....make that 4 (R.I.P Timothy Gibson) 

What brand of body lotion do you use?
Lately Dove

What color are your eyes?
Brown

If you could live in any other country, which one would you pick?
Duh.....Scotland!

Where were you when you heard about the World Trade Towers?
I was at school in US History (Mr. Lemay). We were the first to find out before the rest of the school. Class stopped and we watched the news on the TV. All I wanted to do was hug/hold my Bob, but he had already graduated so he was not there at all. After school I went to his house and we held each other and watched the news with his family.

Do you like your phone?
It's old and not all the buttons work all the time, but it's still okay. Not like the hubby's old phone that the battery dies after a couple calls!

Last tv show you watched?
Law and Order: SVU - Last Friday, while I watched my hubby and Erik practice handcuffing for work!

What color are your bed sheets?
Tan and Brown, with my quilt that I made over them.

Do you ever keep arguing even when you know you're wrong?
Depends on the situation and who i am fighting with! I mostly just throw out the whatever than I am done (huh bob?!)

Do long distance relationships work?
They can work but they are not easy.

What's your favorite girl scout cookie?
Thin mints

Have you ever slept in a bed with the opposite sex?
Yup, everynight! I love it! Sometimes cuddling up to someone is all you need to make everything seem like it doesn't matter! (Just because you are in a bed with the opposite sex does not mean you have to be having sex! Besides sex happens in more than just the bed....  )

Is there any part of your body that hurts?
Usually my lower back, comes from having big boobs! My knees hurt me alot of the time, although today the haven't.

Are you happy with your life right now?
Right now, yes. I have everything I want at the moment with a few extra bonuses! A little while ago was a different story.

What's one thing you've learned recently?
That good things come to those who wait! (This is really true, I have everything I want because I was patient and didn't rush/push to get them. You will get them when the time is right. Fate, i guess.)

How do you earn money?
I work hard at a job that I don't always like. I hate retail and working retail hours, but I work it anyway. I have always worked hard for everything I have.

Last time you took a nap?
Sometimes it's the only way I get to see my hubby lately. I hate him working third shift as much as he hates to work it!

Who made you laugh today?
The guy at the first gun shop who was amazed that a girl who likes guns was in his shop! And of course my hubby always makes me laugh!

Are you slowly drifting away from someone close?
I hope not....although I did think of my friend Kim today and how I have no way of getting ahold of her. I miss her....so maybe I have drifted away from her but not on purpose.


When was the last time you cried really hard?
A little while ago, almost cried this morning. I haven't had nightmares in a long time but for some reason I had one last night, and it sucked!

Who was the last person who IMed you?
I couldn't tell you, it's been that long.

When was the last time you held someone's hand?
Today while on a walk with my hubby, we held hands for a little.

Who do you tell everything to?
My hubby. Other than that I have a couple of others who I can tell anything to.

Last bed you slept in?
Mine, I am married remember...there is no more "bed hopping" for me. If I was sharing/using a bed other than my own I would be staying over with my sister. Or on Morganna's (Bob's God Daughter) bed. Or at a hotel....

Last words you spoke?
"I am NOT evil, I am just laying here....I love you, have a nice night at work!"

What's your natural hair color?
Brown with natural red highlights! (I did dye it a while ago so you can't tell it has the red highlights but it does!)

What is the next concert you're going to?
Don't know. I would like to see the Josh Logan Band play...but just to see my friend Nate play!

Can you play guitar hero?
 You know so many people play better drunk! Yup I can play....

Do you like someone?
I love my Bob. I like alot of people...some more than others and all in different ways!

Do you prefer warm or cold weather?
I prefer cool weather. Not too hot...not too cold

Where were you three hours ago?
Out gun shopping. Hubby needs one for work (Probably the Springfield XD40). I just want one for play (Probably the Walther P22 or the new Walther PPS!)

Are you wearing socks right now?
Wow, stupid question...knew there had to be one in there! I think the person who wrote this has some strange foot fetish or something, cause what does it matter?!
But to answer the question: Yes

When was the last time you went out of state?
Last month

Have you been to the movies in the last 6 days?
I have not

Last movie I saw in the theatre was Meet the Spartans

The hubby

A new pair of pants and a couple of bras.

Do you have a pet?
I have 3: Two cats (Scrapper and Avalanche) and one dog (Thistle)

What do you know about the future?
That it's the future?! Um I don't really know where the future will take me. I do know that I hope to have kids in my future and that I want to own my own house. I would also like a Shelby Cobra GT500 (I would settle for a GT350 if I had to) while we are making the wishlist for the future. I would also like to own my own metaphysical store but mainly just to be better than one that I use to work at!

7:10 pm - Argh.....they make me want to scream.....
 I HaTe lawyers!!!! (Hate is a feeling I try not to feel towards anyone)

So it looks like I am heading back to court..... Stupid f**kers....if they would just give me a number to get a hold of them this wouldn’t happen. I could call them and let them know I am down to only a part time job to pay for EVERYTHING...this sucks!

oh if they gave me a number than they couldn’t charge me:
$95 for filing
$42 for the summons
$58 for Sheriff’s Service
$1,321.40 in attorney fees
and the remaining principal balance (which I am not getting into)

When do I stop hitting brick walls in my life?!

5:26 pm - little update....

So yesterday was.....interesting from start to finish! It started early in the morning with me getting up with the hubby and telling him "maybe you should have left earlier this morning cause of the weather!?" Yeah the snow and "our" car suck together. And this is what happened....hubby leaves around 4am and then he calls around 4:27am to tell me that he went off the highway. He is stuck....the cop came by around 4:47am, he was a dick, but called a tow truck. The hubby calls back a little while later to tell me that the tow truck driver is taking the car cause we didn't have money to pay him! (Today is payday...not yesterday) So the car gets taken, but we get it out later and the hubby gets to work! (I love my family)
So I go to work and stand around for eight hours, cause almost no one came into the store. Then I get a ride home, and when I get home, I discover that I am missing my cell phone! Oh crap....it ends up being at work, when do I ever put it in my vest?? Yeah like NEVER!
By the time hubby gets home it's to late to cook, so we go and get my phone, then its off to Wendy's for dinner! I forgot my wallet...oh crap! That's okay, we end up not having to pay for any of our food...i like knowing people in "yummy" places! We were there over an hour, the time was spent eating and laughing with the crew! Before we go, since it's after 10, the hubby washs all the tables...what a nice guy!!

That brings us to today, I got a Friday off of work!! I been just hanging around the house, watched tv, took a nap, cleaned a little, and been working on the comics!! Fun stuff....I don't want my day off to end! But it's back to work at 6am tomorrow!!

7:44 pm - yes I LIVE!!!!!
so it's been a while....a very long while since I updated this thing!!  Allow me to bring you up to date on what happened while I was away........ready?
Okay it went like this:
The "rollercoaster" ride of life went up with excitement and went down really, really fast into the depths of hell where I thought I would never come back up again......UNTIL the ride came ever so slowly up to where I am right now waiting in suspense as to what will happen next!! In other words it sucked and I don't wish to go over it in detail again......the way I see it, I lived it once, I care not to recap it because that would be like living it again! And that my friends is BAD MOJO!!

12:38 pm - No I'm not dead....
Just wanted to let everyone know that...No I am not dead!!! I haven't disappeared either...I just now am living with a good friend, have no car at all, and both Bob and I are out of jobs!!! So, how is life treating everyone else?!?!?!

Anyway the wedding was awesome, and the honeymoon was a dream come true! Had I known what was waiting when I got back, I would have had my cats shipped over, Bob would have took the job offer over there and things would have been great!! Oh well, things will get better!

Wish me luck on getting my dream job....I am one interview away (that would be the second interview with the head manager!)Hope everyone had a great Turkey Day!! Talk to you all later!

2:29 pm
So there is 20 more days until my wedding, which means 21 until I am in Scotland! Yesterday we (Bob, me, the sis, and my soon to be father-in-law) traveled 2 hours to see Clann An Drumma play at the Pipes in the Valley Festival in Hartford! It was an awesome show (the festival was bigger than the vermont games, but the vendors were a let down)before we left, we all talked to the guys for a while. They all got the wedding invitations, and were touched that we thought of them! (They will be unable to make the wedding, because they have a show at the Stirling Castle in Scotland on that day!) However they are going to get together with us while we are over in Scotland! Hooray!!!

Other than that, a lot has happened since I last posted...
here is a list of a few of the things:
~Went to the NH Highland Games (Clann An Drumma was there)
~Enjoyed an awesome memorable C.A.D show at Blazers (though the butts still give me nightmares, and next year I will remember to bring a hard hat....you had to be there!)
~Had a bridal shower
~finally bought/found the material for 3 great kilts in cotton (along with all the other needed dress!)
~got to try on my wedding dress....and lit up while marking it for alterations
~got the dress pinned to me by accident!
~been losing weight...in a healthy and rewarding way!
~got wedding bands for FREE!!!!! (yes Free, we enjoy that word!)
~my oldest cat is having seizures and Miss Nikki isn't doing well
~Designed my next tattoo...and the one after it!
~Jacquie's mother died :(
~Joe was unable to make it for the reminder of the tour
~I am going to try like heck to make it to the last stateside show on the C.A.D tour this year in PA...I remain hopeful.

And that is all I can think of for now....

8:13 pm - Hey All....
Just a little update! We are all moved into the new apartment and things are going great!! All last week Lailoken (Erik) has been staying with us, as he is up here from Texas before he goes back to Iraq! He will be coming back for a little while longer. Yet again we are all talking about living together! This is great, he will be done with the army by next August! It's nice having him up with us, but at the same time it sucks since it means he can't be at the wedding and that he is soon heading back to Iraq! Poor guy, he has so much on his mind...I am glad we have spent so much time talking though, he doesn't share to much with others...he really should! Anyway that is what is happening right now. Since he has been up, there hasn't been much happening for wedding plans!! Oh well, two more months!! It will all get done, we will get there!

11:14 am - Just to give everyone a heads up....
As many of you know, very shortly I will be moving into my new apartment...this means that I will not have internet access! I am also not sure how long I will not have internet, it depends oh whether or not we get cable right away, and how much comcast charges for hooking up the cable modem! The scheduled move in date is this Wednesday so I may not be on after Wednesday morning/afternoon! We also are not planning on hooking up a landline right away, however (have no fear), Bob and I can still be reached on our cellphones! We will be able to get on and check our email, although not as often and from a parent's house! So if you must email...we will eventually get it! I will also try to update everyone on this while visiting parents if I can!
Thanks Everyone...I will try not to be gone that long!

Yesterday afternoon, my hamster (Elvira) passed away. The cats all could tell something was wrong with their hamster buddy, it was cute but at the same time sad. We had a nice little burial for her. We made up a box (actually it was a French Vanilla tea box) complete with bedding used for her cage, a handful of her favorite food, and a small chew biscuit. We let each cat have a turn to look at her and smell her (even kiss her) one last time, then we closed the box and found a nice spot out in the woods to bury her! It was nice, and when we got home both Bob and I felt good, we knew it was the right thing to do.

12:06 am - Sad....
My hamster is showing extreme signs of old age, I sat with her, after I did some major packing, for twenty minutes or so...and it made me feel sad! I got her shortly after I moved here, and it's sad to think that shortly after I move out she may pass. I have to admit she has lived a long hamster life and was a mother to six beautiful babies (which I had to round up almost every night because of my cat Avalanche), she is about four years old! Most hamsters show signs of old age after the first year! Tonight I made sure she is as comfortable as possible, I cleaned her eye for her so she could see again, I made sure she ate and had water(as in hand feeding, yeah it's that bad), and I made sure that Bob got to pet her before he feel asleep! Besides turning the AC off tonight there is not much else I can do for her until morning. (I am turning the AC off so that she doesn't get cold, as she can't really cover herself without it taking all her energy!)

Now all we can do is see what morning brings....

7:55 pm - This kinda sucks....
Since I no longer have someone making my cake anymore my parents have volunteered to pay for our wedding cake as a wedding gift! Well come to find out the lowest we have found, so far, for a cake is $3.75/person!! This brings the grand total to: $468.75....way to friggin much money for a damn cake!! Even if we cut the people down 25 it's still $375! ARGH....eloping sounds pretty nice right now!!

To pay more for the cake than the reception hall, that is the question!?!
