Before I stuff my face…

November 24, 2009 at 10:08 am (Daily Ramblings, Family, Movie Review, Road Rage!)

In answer to Blond Duck there will be a multitude of pies/cheescakes for Thanksgiving and I shall give a full report upon my return!!

Before I get to stuff my face eat like a lady this Thanksgiving I have to drive 12-14 hours and then help make the food. Even with the horrible amount of time we will be spending in our Trailblazer I am so unbelievably excited to go and get to spend a couple of days with the Fam!! And God willing we will be able to show Mel some parts of Chi-Town on Friday!!

This week at work is unbearably (sp?) slow! Everyone I email or do business with is out and won’t be back until Monday, and everything here is so quiet that I sometimes feel like screaming. You’ll be happy to know that I am to much of a lady to scream in my place of employment, but the moment I’m in my car I start screaming at all of the people who just plain do not know how to drive!

I used to do Movie Reviews, back in the day (like a few months ago) on here and I want to get back to that. This past weekend we were crazy and saw New Moon, but it was worth it. I loved the books and the movies are never as good as the books, but it was still a good movie. And I saw GI Joe, My Sister’s Keeper, and The Box (please do not waste your time on this). I know I’ve seen a few others that I can’t remember at this point. I will be starting up reviews after the Holidays!! So if you have an idea of a movie that is out on video or in the theaters that you can’t go see or want a review of let me know and I will do my best to watch it and give you the professional my critique! Although I must warn you I do believe in including the hottness of all male roles in each movie :)!!

Morning Construction and Where have I been?

September 23, 2009 at 11:03 am (All about the books baby!, Bitch, Bitch, Bitch, Daily Ramblings, Road Rage!)

Sorry I have been scarce lately, Mel and I haven’t had much going on unless you count buying a new bed  miracle! Mel and I had a good weekend, he has been going to a pain management clinic three times a week for massages and to see the chiropractor which he says is helping him a little! 🙂 YAY!! I love it when he says his pain is less, it is a difficult thing to see the one you love in so much pain and all you can do is be there for him and that still doesn’t take the pain away!

Ok, so back to my Miracle! Mel and I have been having really crappy nights of sleep for the past few weeks and we knew we needed a new bed. We were hoping to put it off but when we both started getting comments on the bags under our eyes we decided to go look for a new bed! We bought our first bed (queen size, pillow top) about 4 years ago, and we loved the bed and the bed treated us with respect and kindness…..BUT…..when we picked that bed out we didn’t know really what our preferences were in beds so we just picked something semi-soft and semi-firm you know half and half! Little did we know we both prefer ultra-soft beds that form to us and support our backs. Also we decided we NEEDED a King size bed because we are bigger people and we have a very spoiled kitten that likes to spread out even if that means kicking one of us to the edge of the queen size bed! Plus when we stayed in hotels on our way to and from Nebraska we had King sized beds and it was divine, he could stretch his 6’4 self out and still not encroach on my 5’6 terrirtory! I can’t tell you how many times I have had to wake up and scream politely tell him to get off my mother effing side of the bed! To make a long story short we purchased our new Sleep to Live KING size bed ultra soft and I even went to bed late last night and I feel unbelievably rested!! YAY!! Mel is in love with the fact that he can stretch and stretch and I don’t have to scream politely talk to him about any longer!!

Here is a picture of the bed with our Kitten directly in the middle! Also please don’t mind the outrageously 70’s wood panelling on our walls, it’s a basement apartment that we get for cheap!

I hit really bad traffic this morning for the first time ever! I usually hit traffic at night not in the morning! So I got to work an hour late, no one cared though which is nice! And I was off on Monday because of car trouble 😉 so I have to get to work!

P.S. I am going to be having a blog makeover by Miss Faith at her gorgeous website! So there are changes coming!!!

Eye Opening

August 20, 2009 at 10:05 am (Daily Ramblings, Road Rage!, Thought of the Day)

Yesterday I was coming home from work on the last highway only about 35 mintues away from home, I am in the right lane coming up on a subaru station wagon thing and all of a sudden he isn’t paying attention or someting happened. They started to veer off the road to the left and hit those bumby things that make noise when you hit them and a little further before he went to correct his mistake. He corrected to hard and went 80 mph into the guardrail! I have never ever seen anything so traumatic or devastating before, I pulled over but because I was ahead of them I just sat there to make sure someone had pulled over to help them. A bunch of cars pulled off to help, and I didn’t think it would be a good idea to reverse on the highway and run across when I would just be in the way. So I started to pull of and saw a state trooper police car beginning to turn around to get to the accident, so I instantly felt better about leaving. In the interum I had to swerve to miss this car when he over-corrected and it was beyond scary! I called my mom and I began to cry, and I re-hashed everything with her and ended up driving home just fine, albeit a little slower. What I don’t understand is why I’ve been so emotional lately, I have been up and down for the past few days and it is certainly annoying!! One minute I’m happy and tears of joy are present, then I’m just sad and tears are of course present again, and then I can get angry in a split second! Driving me crazy is putting it lightly! Anyway I guess the moral of my rambling is too slow down and pay attention on the the road and NOTHING else, please stop texting, brushing your hair, eating, or doing your makeup because it is ultimately at the expense of your life or someone elses!

Traveling with the best of em’

August 7, 2009 at 10:39 am (Bitch, Bitch, Bitch, Daily Ramblings, Family, Gotta Love Men!, Road Rage!)

Alright, so here is my long awaited post about my vacation! If I was a professional at this I would have taken a TON of pictures, but I didn’t even take my camera out of the case I was so frickin busy! From the moment I got there to the Saturday before we left I was busy and a roller coaster of emotions! I cried when I hugged my dad when I first got there, I cried AFTER my sister got to the church in her dress and saw my dad (I dressed her and help her put on all her undergarments, but didn’t cry until AFTER all of that, wierd) it took me like 10 minutes to compose myself and another daddy hug! Then I had to try and pull it together for the pictures, and then cried again throughout the ceremony and almost tripped on the way up (in my defense almost ALL of the girls tripped, because we had one hand around the groomsmen arm and the other occupied with flowers so we couldn’t lift our dress on the way up to the platform). The ceremony was short and so was the reception (no alcohol or music as per her religious beliefs) people just ate and left! Then I finally got to spend time with my dad and family I hadn’t seen in 5 freaking years! Then Sunday we went out to brunch with my dad and step-mom and three step-brothers and then we left from Omaha, where you guessed it I cried again hugging my dad good-bye! Holy Crap who knew I could cry so much! And then of course I cried 6 hours into the trip because it finally hit me I was already headed home and my vacation was pretty much over! WOW did I just ramble with run-on sentences? Yep I think I did, it is what I DOOOO!!

Overall we had a great time and M. was a damn trooper putting up with everything! He said that we might move out to the midwest eventually, and that I shouldn’t count it out! YAY! I hope everyone has had a good week/weekend and I am slowly getting back into my routine of blog updating and stalking reading!

Thank God it’s Friday my head hurts from all the crying!

Here we are again!

June 25, 2009 at 7:00 pm (Daily Ramblings, My heart is breaking, Road Rage!)

Ok so M. is working on some other project involving cars tonight so I am all alone again!! You know it’s not so bad, because this time I had GREAT traffic and actually have a great new book to read, and a brand new recipe thing from Borders that I can transfer all of my recipes!! Again I am showing everyone how nerdy I am, but honestly this is awesome for me…like a fat kid loves cake….like most college students covet free beer! But I digress…

I am so excited to start Emily Giffin’s “Something Borrowed” I found her as I was ordering some more Jen Lancaster and Jodi Picoult on Amazon. I love Amazon they take your purchases and then come up with suggestions that you might like, I found Emily Giffin and started reading some of the info on her books, perfect chit lit for a night alone with my Fanta Orange soda and a banana (what a duo egh?) I hope all of you can have time to yourself once a week, I am soaking this up because the moment we have children (far in the future) I will not likely have much of this time left!

ON another note, I feel compelled to share how unbelievably ignorant some drivers can be on the evening commute!! I work in Accounting and once I leave my desk to head home I am like any other New Yorker (pronounced with appropriate accent, New Yalker) and I want to get the eff home with no incident and in a timely manner. If you plan on going below the speed limit and NOT pass any cars in the slow lane then please for the love of all things holy get out of the fast lane otherwise you will be flipped off with the most disgusted look, hands in air screaming with the windows up “what the fuck? are you kidding me?” I wish that people could just get it through their heads that it is not ok to be in the fast lane and NOT pass anyone in the slow lane!! GRRR!! Also there seems to be an over-abundance of one religious group around where I live/work (I’m not naming the group I don’t want to offend) that about 91%(I’m in accounging remember?) of the accidents are with them. Up to and including flip overs, rolls, and your average rear-ending! I make it appoint to go around said people because I do not want to be entangled in any sort of accident they have looming in their destiny! I am an aggressive driver and I am REALLY (read=a little) to calm down as to not give myself a heart attack at age 21 and to not be the next accident on the parkway/highway! Thank you all for listening!

P.S. I can’t believe it, Ed McMahon, Farrah Fawcett, Michael Jackson!! Three great people gone!

Because it’s just so fun!

April 16, 2009 at 3:17 pm (Road Rage!)

One of the things I hate MOST about my commute, besides the idiots on the road and the terrible pains I get in my ass from sitting so long, is the look and questions I get when people ask me where I work. Usually it’s

“Are you crazy, I could never do that…” (Thats nice for you, but I have to support my habit of wanting to have a home and food to eat, I really need to go to a meeting about that!)

“WOW do you know how far that is?” (No I don’t I just blindly drive with my thumb in my whoohaa and have no idea what time I leave in the morning and when I get to work)

And then theirs the blank stare followed by a face of pity to which I like to respond (someone has to do it, and I am the one to do it, I call myself superwomen!haha)

Assclowns are born every minute just to toy with me while driving! But rest assured that you all will be the first to read about it when it happens!
