what a bear

The medicine I am taking right now makes me depressed, mean, tired, and cranky.

Either cheer me up, or get out of the way.

Consider yourself warned.

the end.

thanksgiving wrap up

I had a GREAT holiday.
I hope yours was the same.

I spent time with my family, saw some of them that I haven't spent time with in awhile, which was very nice. (My cousin slightly objected to being called "a myth," but it had seriously been awhile!)

We shopped until we literally dropped in true Black Friday fashion. We didn't have anything that we NEEDED, so the pressure was off. We could just relax and enjoy the crazies out there. (At a decent hour - NOT 5am!)

I didn't cook this year, so I am not enjoying the usual leftovers. I kinda miss them.... I may have to make a turkey dinner one of these weekends just for kicks.

I was sad when everybody left.... Why are we all so far away???
You know it is a good visit when you miss them before they are even gone.

Happy Holidays, Everyone!!!!

under lock and key

This may come as a shock to those who actually know me IRL (since I am so blunt), but I think I tend to be quite guarded. I am private by nature. I don't like people knowing my personal private business. In looking back at my blog, I notice that I tend not to put the truly personal stuff out there. When there are big gaps between posts, it is usually because I am going through something and I just don't want to talk about it. I usually don't bring my problems to other people, I sit back and wait for and hope that somebody will notice. Usually they don't, because I am quite sure that everyone has their own stuff to deal with and can't be bothered worrying about mine! Other times I hold back my thoughts and opinions too long and then it all comes out like verbal diarrhea, which can be more hurtful than it is productive. As a result people don't always know the real me. I guard myself too closely. I need to open up more.

A while back I challenged my friend to start a blog. She responded by using her myspace blog. Touche. I can't respond to it because I don't have a myspace page. Because that would involve having my privacy invaded. Oh no! Well, I think I'll venture over that and see what I can do. But I still think she should have to start a blogger blog in return!

are you ready for some football?

I'm not sure when I became such a football nut, but it seems this fall my life has been overly consumed with the game. My weekend plans have pretty much been driven by the football schedule. This weekend was an exceptional weekend of games, both Saturday and Sunday. Sadly, I gave up my ticket to what was supposed to be a washout, and it turned out to be the game of the season. I was watching on tv, but knowing I was supposed to be there rather stung a little! I've tried to be adult about it, but well... you know. Inside I'm still pouting. Sunday's games more than made up for it. And even though my team disasterously blew an enormous lead only to lose in the last two minutes of the game, it was still a great day for the sport. Anyone who caught that Giants / Bears game, knows what I'm talking about!

riddle me this

Do you enjoy your free time?

Then DON'T play.

(Don't say I didn't warn you.)

Just when I am feeling sorry for myself.... and I mean REALLY feeling sorry for myself, really IN it, drowning myself in it, swirling around in the gloom and getting lost in the darkness.....

I am greeted by my light.

I wander into the kitchen to find dinner and candlelight and wine.
Cause he knew that it was what I needed.
And we talked and laughed and enjoyed each other's company.

Cause that's what we do.

He is my soft place to land.
My strength and my hope.

My everything.

mama needs a brand new bag

I have been informed (whatEVAH, B!!) that the bag that I've been carrying around was made for an old lady. Actually I think what she said was "When did you turn old enough to carry around a bag like THAT???"


So, apparently I am now in the market for a new bag. I need something that functions like a briefcase, mostly to carry back and forth to work. I've got my planner, some papers, a book, etc in there. A little of this a little of that, ya know?

The bag has to be large enough to hold my stuff, but I don't want to be lugging around a suitcase. Oh, and I guess it wouldn't hurt if it was stylish.

I came across these.... what do you think? Please let me know if you have any suggestions I haven't thought of and where I can find them!

ticketmaster has all my money

It's true. What I spent on tickets today should have been against the law. I have no idea what I was thinking. I keep waiting for the credit card company to call and ask me if my card has been stolen. I think I have spent my entire entertainment budget for the next year. I had to write B a "Dear John" letter and let her know that we can no longer be friends because we spend too much money together. I'm thinking we need to get together and do free stuff from now on. How about a scrapbook day? We keep talking about it and never do it. (Cause I procrastinate like it's my job!)

But what else can I do? *sigh*
BNL stalking season has officially begun.
