Here we go.... yet again

Dear body,
I am writing to you with much frustration. I now need to put "the smack down". You will start functioning properly.... or else. Yeah. That's all I got!

Lets see here, I look like Stevie Wonder at work today, I've had a migraine for 3 days now.


The front yard is just about perfect. This weekend with some digging and weeding will make it so very beautiful!

I will get before and after pictures up- promise! :)


we had a tornado warning yesterday, I was like what? we didn't move to Oklahoma.

Otherwise things are okay. I get a little lonely every now and again, but seem to find something to do.

Fishstick is wonderful, at least to me if not to the world.

We have some family comin up soon- love that!

For Lecram

Carole King
You've Got A Friend
When you're down and troubled
and you need a helping hand and nothing, whoa nothing is going right.
Close your eyes and think of me
and soon I will be there
to brighten up even your darkest nights.
You just call out my name,
and you know wherever I am I'll come running,
oh yeah baby
to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer, or fall,
all you have to do is call and I'll be there,
yeah, yeah, yeah.You've got a friend.
If the sky above you
should turn dark and full of clouds
and that old north wind should begin to blow
Keep your head together and call my name out loud and soon
I will be knocking upon your door.
You just call out my name and you know wherever I am I'll come running to see you again.
Winter, spring, summer or fall
all you got to do is call
and I'll be there, yeah, yeah, yeah.
Hey, ain't it good to know that you've got a friend?
People can be so cold. They'll hurt you and desert you.
Well they'll take your soul if you let them.
Oh yeah, but don't you let them.
You just call out my name and you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again. Oh babe, don't you know that,
Winter spring summer or fall,Hey now, all you've got to do is call.
Lord, I'll be there, yes I will.
You've got a friend. You've got a friend.
Ain't it good to know you've got a friend. Ain't it good to know you've got a friend.
You've got a friend.
Love you lots honey

Da Count- life

Good, bad, busy, trying

Happy, sad, frustrating, satisfying

Loving, loved, hugged, kissed

Things are so often taken for granted

Life and love should never be on that list

Loving with the whole heart

Wanting with the whole soul

Listening with strong conviction

People, places, things

full of love, full of smiles

Love fully, love often, love hard.

The trip home.....

was mixed for me. It was nice seeing people and the town, but sometimes (more often than not) my family dynamic is so off it just frustrates me. I honestly thought 5 months gone from certain people would have been long enough to at least warrant a hug or a hi, guess not.

I wish and hope that some of the relationships I keep will change, I attempt to change them, attempt to accept them but neither seems to happen. Maybe these relationships are so set in a screwed up way that change is impossible for them, maybe this is how they are to be, I am not sure. I do know however that I cannot and will not keep up always being the "trying" one. The one that makes the effort, the phone calls, tries with the hugs. I just don't have it in me to do so anymore.

I am having iron problems again, in tandem with girlie problems and really needed my family to talk to, bounce things off of and just be with. Most of the family was there to talk, listen, try to understand. The one person I needed wasn't. She always pulls away. I am always the one to over react, it's hard. She's the one person I need to tell me it's going to be okay, give me a hug and a kiss and let me know she's there- and it NEVER happens.

It's going to be quite a long time before I come back to visit. I'm okay with that now.

I'll get pictures up here soon.

life, in general

is pretty good.
Spring is trying to come to the INW (inland Northwest) like nothing I've ever seen. But, winter keeps attempting to disrupt the beauty that is Spring.

Cisco is great- adapting really well to his new home, and lovin the backyard!

The house is slowly coming along, although we have had a few major hiccups in the past few weeks. 2 water pipes exploded and the washing machine broke. YAY! Sometimes I think renting really is the way to go. LOL

The job is wonderful, and Fishstick seems to be loving his new line of employment. That man never ceases to amaze me, he thrives and rocks any and every challenge that he comes in contact with. Man I love him.

We just ordered the MLB package on Comcast so we can see the Giants play some baseball!

For our one year anniversary we will be trekking across the state to see the Giants battle the Mariners over Memorial Day Weekend! I can't wait.

The yard is slowly starting to take shape, and flowers are blooming. I love color, and I love not having everything look so darn barren. It's beautiful!

I travel home in 21 days to see family and attend a wedding, and I am so excited for my trip! It's been 4 months- almost 5 since I have seen my family and man O man do I miss them. It's going to be really weird not seeing Joel for 4 days, but a good healthy dose of family is what I have been needing as of late.

I hate my body right now.
I love having someone to love.
I wish I could control certain things.
I'm kinda down right now, but I am not going to stay down.
Coffee good.
I have never been more ready for spring.
I can't wait to get back into school.
I will be an MD some day :)
It blows me away how rude some people are.
It's going to be a music filled Sunday!

I am so sick

of hearing pregnant women attribute EVERYTHING to being pregnant. I don't want to hear about your pregnancy. I don't care that you are pregnant. Please keep it all to yourself.

Da Count

I'm missing my social life I had, but I know another will develop. So this Count is going to be short and sweet. To building a new social life, and life in general in a beautiful new area. I do miss you all and hope to see everyone soon.... ( wink, wink, wink I have a trip home scheduled in May)

Happy Valentine's Day! :)

Hope it's great!

I made 4 dozen of these and heard that they were awesome! :)

Oh Dear God.....

Sometimes I can't believe people are like this!

"Lone Grove firefighters methodically searched each damaged or destroyed structure, spray-painting a large "X" on homes after inspection. Residents were then allowed to check for belongings.

Authorities gave as much as 35 minutes of warning that a twister was approaching.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado warning at 6:50 p.m., meaning a twister was imminent and residents should take shelter. Another warning was issued at 7:15 p.m. when the actual tornado was spotted. It hit Lone Grove at 7:25 p.m.

"A lot of people just didn't leave," Carter County Sheriff Ken Grace said. "

Link to full story

is it sad that a tornado wiped a town out, yes
should these people look to live where tornados don't roll through town, yes
is 35 minutes more than enough time to remove your ass from where the tornado is going to hit- DUH!

and all I can do is shake my head!

My first home improvement project...

The dining room needed to be tackled!

So it's the first room I decided to re do. I am very pleased with how it came out. It feels very very warm and cozy now!


Border Gone and spackled the holes...

Let the painting begin!

And the finished product!

This is what happens when I have too much time on my hands...

Your Spiritual Number is Two
You bring kindness and harmony into other people's lives.
Whenever a situation or idea seems extreme, you try to lend some balance.

Right now, your life is about benefiting from choices you've made in your past.
You have done your best to be a good person, and it is starting to pay off.

You are an idealist with interesting ideas. You can't help but see all of the beauty in the world.
But you are also aware of the world and its limitations. You have realistic expectations.

You Look Like an Aquarius
It's likely that you are very striking. You stand out in a room.
You are probably also taller than average, and that also helps you get noticed.

You have classical facial features... what some might call a handsome face.
You have are attractive in a cool way. You're so attractive, it's intimidating.

Like most Aquarius people, you are probably extremely independent... both in your thoughts and actions.
You find other people fascinating, and you develop deep, long lasting friendships.

You Are Buttermilk Pancakes
Your prefer traditional, old fashioned foods.
You shy away from anything fake, and you like meals with simple ingredients.

It's not likely someone would find margarine or diet soda in your kitchen.
Instead, someone might find a loaf of homemade bread baking or a soup simmering.

Your Word is "Hope"
You see life as an opportunity for learning, growth, and bringing out the best in others.
No matter how bad things get, you always have at least a glimmer of optimism.

You are accepting and forgiving. You encourage those who have wronged you to turn over a new leaf.
And while there is a lot of ugliness in the world, you believe that almost no one is beyond redemption.

You Are 20% Pirate
Arrr, yer nay a gentleman o' fortune, an' ye dasn't make like yer one.
Ye rather stay on dry land than take to the seas lookin' fer booty.
Peg legs an' eye patches really aren't yer thing. And parrots scare ye.
So stay away from the Caribbean, unless yer prepared to walk the plank.
