Micheal looks sooo cute with glasses.
We had a wonderful time hiking out in the bad lands.
There was a lot to see, North Dakota is beautiful.
The river was frozen.
He took me back to his house and showed me his room where I would stay while he slept in the family room. I put down my stuff and got comfortable. We laid on his bed and talked for a long time, but at some point we fell asleep. He had to work that day, but I was so tired from the trip that I slept most of the time he was at work.
Most of my trip after that blurs together, because there were so many happy moments. We went hiking and went shopping together. I got to meet some of his friends and some of his family. Every second we spent together I felt closer and closer to him. I have to say now, and I have not said this in a long long time, but I am now truly in Love with Michael. He is everything I have ever wanted. Because he knows what it is like to go through what I have been through. He is also bi-polar like me and is on medications for that as well as depression. We have been through such similar things and see things a lot a like. We were born only a year and 5 days apart. Making us both Gemini's. Which is really unique in itself. But he is truly everything I could ask for in a guy. He is tall, thin, handsome, funny, smart, and caring. He played football in high school and was in drama and chorus. He sings and that is soooo sexy. He calls me princess and treats me like one too. He is always telling me how much he loves me. I could not ask for more!
Michael works at Wal-Mart right now. We want to be together as soon as we can and he is moving here in Jan. The last week of Jan. I will be going up to him and driving with him on the way back. I am very excited. I am going to be taking a second job at prairie meadows as a cocktail waitress. The extra money would be so wonderful.
I really missed my family and the puppies while I was gone. I got stuck up in Minneapolis Minnesota on my way back and Butch drove all the way up there to get me so I could be home for Christmas. I had a very very wonderful Christmas with my family.

I get my first check from Prairie Meadows on Friday! I am very excited. It should be pretty good. I only work two days this week, but I might get called in. When Jeremy gets home today I am going to help him fill out his application for Prairie Meadows, because he is taking a year off before he goes to college. He needs a decent paying job. Plus I think he is beginning not to like McDonalds anymore.
I think Koty is coming back over later to watch the movie with us. He went home this morning while I was on the phone to mom. She is going out to Prairie Meadows now, because she went and tried on her uniform and it was all messed up. So she is hoping they can fix it before Friday, because that is her first day. She had her orientation Monday and Tuesday. I am excited for her. This is the first real job she will have had for years! She has been doing Passion Parties, but you work for yourself. Then before that she did mystery shops and stuff like that. The last job I remember her having is when she worked out at Hansen Directory. Which now the Newton Clinic as bought out and it is a physical rehab center for sports injuries. A lot has changed since I was a kid. Like the mall is almost completely gone now, because they are tearing it all down for the new Hy-Vee parking lot. But I guess life is change.

I have to get everything done with the bills today. I have been putting it off forever. But it needs to be done. My back is so sore from work last night. We set up for a party of 500! Then we served them everything and took plates and cups. We had tons of cleaning to do. After we were done with the party we ahd to clean out the room and house keeping had to come in and clean, so we could divide up the room and set up for two more parties the next day! We did get out at mid-night. But these 12 hour shifts are killing me! Having to lift up all the chairs was the part that really killed my back in it all. Then two people got sent home because they ahd bad attitudes. But I am meeting a lot of new people and I work with a lot of nice people. There are only two I don't care to work with too closely. Thats only because I like to do a good job the first time and get things done right as well. I hate when people slack or half ass it. But all in all I really do like my job, it is just really hard!!

Chris went into work early. He does that a lot. I wish he would get a better paying job. Because there are going to be a lot of time where he is going to have to walk home in the cold because me and Jeremy are working. Not as much cleaning as I wanted got done today, but thats ok, it never does. But we did get the hallway cleaned and blocked off from the puppies. We have this very simple carpet layed down in the bathroom, and they have been tearing it out. It doesn't really matter because it is crappy carpet and we are going to remodel. But it does make one heck of a mess. Plus they tend to think it is a good idea to run off with my underwear. So it is best they are only in there at night when it is bed time.
We got some laundry done today which is good, because I like to have a lot of different things to chose from. I am so one of those people that has like their favorite pair of underwear and favorite pair of jeans. But then I love clothes, so yeah.
Chris had to go into work early tonight. So he will have plenty of hours on his check. Jeremy went and got his check cashed today. So I need to go and put the rest into the house account and make the house payment. Tomorrow is my last day off before I work a hard streak. I am a little nervous. I should be good the first night, but the nights after that should be interesting. I have never worked 12 hour shifts before. But the pay is really good, and I like what I do.
I am still having major trouble with Garths Fleas. I need to take some time tomorrow and see if I can find some natural home remedies for them. We even shaved off his fur. Poor little guy has the worst of luck really. But him and Coco have become really good friends, and play a lot. I love seeing them run around together. Now Coco sleeps in bed with me and Garth sleeps beside my bed at night. They are my babies.

These pictures were taken on different days. The hand at the top is the big gash Zack put in my hand. The bruises on the other side wouldn't photograph, but they were the size of two fifty cent peices. The other pic's are of Brandon playing with Coco, Zoe, and Jeremy trying to aviod the camera. Oh and I had to make a pic of me looking mean, so I could win a photo battle on my year book,lol.
Zoe is in heat. Which has been a interesting experience so far. She follows Jeremy around like he carrying catnip. Plus she is eating more then usual, which is funny because she will meow at us really loud until we feed her. Then at night she uses what I assume is her sexy kitty voice and meows half the night away. I feel bad for her. If it weren't the middle of winter, and we weren't so busy, I would see about finding her a boyfriend. I wouldn't mind the pitter-patter of kitten feet. But I think we will wait until next time.
I have been playing around on myyearbook.com a lot. I really like the site, it is really fun. Plus I am meeting a lot of new people and that's always cool. I am kinda hoping I meet a guy on there. I have met a few, but nothing really serious yet. I just want some one special to spend my time with.
I have some pictures of the house and some other ones I think I will put up in a separate post. I am still not talking to my mom. So now our Thanks Giving sucks. But it never has gone well before, why should it go well now? Mom hates Chris again, because he stood up for himself. I had Jeremy ask her for help with the plumbing, since he broke it, and she even got nasty with him. So I hope she is happy. Jeremy wants us to make-up. But I don't see that happening. I am still upset with her, because every time I get up set she basically says I am crazy. I hate that so much. I have a right to have feelings. She thinks I should just not be upset over things.
Chris might be getting a car. Which I think is great. He is working out some sort of deal with his boss to buy a car that was theirs. He is getting it relatively cheap too. So I am impressed. Jeremy has been helping me clean this morning, which has been really nice. We got a lot done. I haven't been feeling well. I don't know what is wrong with me, because none of my symptoms are consistent. I have a itching stuffy nose and sneezing, but not all the time. Like now I am fine, but 15 min. ago I was sneezing all over the place. And like right now I feel so drained and just want to sleep and last night I got well over 8 hours of sleep. So I don't know what is going on with my body.
Wednesday, November 21, 2007
Oh and the most exciting thing that has happened all day is today was first snow!! And oh boy is it snowing. It has been snowing for like the past couple of hours, and I think we are coming up on 6 inches! If it keeps coming at this rate, then we may have a foot or more! At first it was kind of light,, and then the big fluffy flakes started coming down. It is sticking to everything but the road. There it just turns kinda mushy.
Zoe my cat has been out and about a lot more lately. I like having her around. It is like a sign of leisure and comfort. She is always resting some where. Her usual spot is on the small table in the middle of the room. Right now she is laying on my sewing table, right in front of the window. There must be something special about the spot because she isn't getting any warmth, and no sun really. It is still light out, but it is usually dark around five now. Chris told me the other night that it was very weird to him for it to be so dark so early.
The puppies have been good. Garth is getting more and more social. He will come and curl up with you now while you are watching TV. But don't let Coco see, because then she will have to be on your lap too. Then the fighting will ensue. They are funny yo watch play. I love them to death. I was worried for a while that I was allergic to Garth, because it seemed like when I was around him my sinuses would act up. But now I realize it is just the season and I have try to keep things more clean inside. I have to vacuum a lot more because the dander can get to me. I made sure to pick up some anti-histamines at the store, so when I do get all stuffed up I have some thing I can take. Plus Jeremy has been having the same issue.
Chris has been doing okay health wise, with he exception of his fatigue. His job is really straining him because he is not on a regular work schedule. So I don't know how to help him. He says he wants another job, but wants to keep this job. Which I understand he is good at it, plus it is very secure. They need him and trust him there. But he needs to make more money. He said that he would wait on getting his own car so he could get a computer for his college. But I think he is going to regret that choice once he has to walk home from work in the snow. I don't know what to do though. I am going to have to wait and see what my pay checks are going to look like first.
Speaking of pay, I am hoping that I do get a lot of hours, because I want to be able to get Chris and Jeremy good Christmas gifts. I want this Christmas to be really special. Since it is the first one in our new home. Plus the three of us will be here all together. Oh and I don't know if I put this on here yet, but Jeremy has found out when he starts college. I can't remember the exact date, but it is in the beginning of Feb. SO I am really excited for him. I am so proud of him too, all his hard work. He is getting straight A's. Plus he has lost a lot of weight. He just really amazes me. That's why he totally deserves a wonderfully awesome Christmas gift.

But anyways, moving on. This week has been interesting. I went and took my physical for Prairie Meadows and I am in!!! I start my orientation on Monday! I am worried about mom because they said she was over qualified for the cocktail waitress, so they won't hire her. So she is trying to get on for the cage cashiering. She really needs this job. We just found out my dad has a really bad heart condition. Basically if his heart is under too much stress it could just stop beating and he could die. So it has been really hard for all of us to deal with this.
I quit my job at GoodWill on the spot. I worked a 8 hour Saturday shift and then I was reprimanded later on because I refused to let a lady use the dressing rooms. I was facing a possible 5 day suspension, so I told her that it was quite unreasonable and left. She should have fun covering my shifts, because I worked all this week. But that wasn't the only reason. She also basically said that she wouldn't work around my new jobs hours and was going to fire me anyway. SO I don't know what will happen there, because when I told my mom she made me come forward with all the sexual harassment that I have been receiving from my managers husband. I had kept quiet all this time because I never wanted to cause a conflict were I worked. I loved my job at GoodWill. It really does bum me out that I can't work there anymore.
I have this new found allergy to dog dander, so I have been working on cleaning the house. Plus we are rehoming Cy and thats going to be majorly important to that. He sheds a lot, plus every night he gets worse and worse and tears up stuff, so we know he needs some place new where he can be happy.
I think I have really updated on everything. Oh I have been doing puzzles and gluing them down, they are coming out well. I am going to hang some around the house today.

Oh and then Chris took me home so I could rest because I am not feeling very good because it is that time of the month. Every now and then I feel sick then. Hopefully I feel better later on. Oh and we stopped at McDonald's and rented Spider man 3. It was pretty awesome. There was a lot of emotion and evil in it! I was pretty amazed at the action. I really liked it.
Then Chris went to WalMart after he dropped me off. I was resting when he came home. He went and bought me a new keyboard. He is so wonderful. I really needed one because Jeremy's old one was really nasty and a lot of the keys stuck funny and it was hard to type on. I am trying to increase my speed at typing. So have a nice keyboard really helps. Overall I have had a great day off.
We have been having some serious issues with Cy. He has been tearing into food, and going to the bathroom in the house. At first we thought it was just an issue with being in a new place. But now it is getting worse and worse. Plus with me taking a second job, I can't be here to clean it up and have others clean it up. No one can manage to clean up stuff unless I am here to tell them. I know several people have been down stairs to do laundry and no one folds the clean, so it gets washed over and over again. Then Cy has been pooping down there and no one cleans it up, even though I know they see it.
Okay, I saved the top to a draft and I am writing again later. This evening was not as nice as the earlier part of the day. I had to get on Zack and Jeremy's ass to clean up and it all went down. We all ended up fighting. I decided that Zack needed to get out and told him I would call the cops on him if he didn't leave. My brother told my mom and she came down and resolved everything for us. So now we are going to have a chore chart thing. I have to work with it with my mom tomorrow. I am still very pissed at Zack. I also found out tonight that Jeremy will be living at home while he goes to college. His college isn't as far away as I thought. I am actually happy about it. Although I did want him to leave with Zack earlier. So I am hoping now things will get better.

I don't whats wrong with me, because I have been missing Todd. It is just that he was so nice, sweet, and funny. I liked him a lot. I just can't believe the way he acted. I would never do that to someone.........
But anyways, I need to get a few more things done defore I go to work.
Sunday, November 04, 2007
Mom got me up at eight this morning and we took the kids to church. We went to Wal-Mart and got Mickey some of her Christmas presents. Mom had some coupons for toys. Money is really tight, so she if trying to find ways to get them good presents.
My brother, Koty, and his friend spent the night last night. They were all playing Halo with Jeremy and Zack. I am glad they all get along. Koty's birthday is in a few days.
I am going to work in hemming Mickey's pants now.
Friday, November 02, 2007
I don't know if I could ever smack Garth, because he looks like such a cuddly teddy bear. He is just so cute. When he touches you with his paws, he is just so gentle. He is still walking around barking at nothing in particular. If Coco wasn't such a big Mommas girl then I could hold then both on my lap. But Coco is my big baby, she has to sleep with me and everything. But thats ok, I love her. She just looks at me with those big brown/green eyes and I just want to give her anything she wants.
I need to go over to mom's house today too, because I have some new clothes for Mickey, she needed long sleeve shirts. I still really need to find my pedal for my sewing machine. I have like a dozen pairs of her pants here to hem, and she needs them. She doesn't have a lot that fits right because she is so short and round, lol.

Mom is having me and Koty go in and resign our advertiser routes. Mom told me that Koty and Jeremy are tired of doing them. Which is fine with me. So I have to go do that in a just a little bit. I also have to stop by the bank and deposit my GoodWill pay check. I got paid late. But it is ok, it is just nice to have a regular paycheck again. Mom is trying to get on at Prairie Meadows with Butch. If she gets on there, when my birthday rolls around they are going to try to get me hired on there too. Which would be really awesome because they pay like $10 starting for a lot of the positions. Plus they awesome benefits and right now I have none.
I had this nightmare last night that I got in a fight with my manager at GoodWill and like clocked out and left in the middle of my shift. And I was at home freaking out and my heart was racing and I kept saying I need to get back to work right now, but I kept finding ways to stall going back. So I don't know whats up with that.
Tuesday, October 30, 2007
Me, Mom, Mickey, Holden, and Todd all went trick or treating together. It was a lot of fun. We went walking done the streets in me and moms neighborhoods. The kids did pretty well. We went to the church after that. They had whats called Trunk-or-Treat. People sit in the parking lots with their trunks open and the kids trick or treat there. Then we went to the hospital. By the time we all got there, we got through pretty quick. So it wasn't too bad, besides it was hot. Then we swung back by the church again. Finally we went and ate at McDonalds. They were having .59 cent cheeseburgers today. Mom bought us all dinner. Which was really nice of her. We went back to moms and unloaded. I had Todd bring me home, and I showed him around my house some. It is wild because I own so much stuff. But he has to work tomorrow, so we said our goodbyes. I have to say I had a overall Awesome day.
I had a absolutly wonderful date with Todd. I had so much fun. We went to lake Red Rock. It was a spur of the moment idea. I was a little nervous at first but that wore off very quickly. I feel so comfortable around him. We both took some nice pictures. I put some of the pictures I really liked up here. Most are of the view, but one is of the little hike we went on. I saw a lot of beautiful views and we talked a lot. It was so nice and refreshing. He is so easy to talk to and funny too. We went down by the waters edge, and there was a lot of drift wood. The rocks were worn down and it was just neat. The wind was just right, and it just felt so nice. I wore flat shoes, so I wasn't going to go climbing around. But he totally amazed me when he just climbed down the edge and was taking pictures of everything. It was just a wonderful unqiue date. I see him again and sunday. I can't wait.

I have updated my new site and it has new items up for sale! I still in the process of moving and cleaning, so not a lot of new items. But I hope everyone enjoys! In the future I may have lots of childrens clothing. I have been helping my little sister sort out her clothes and I think my mother would give them to me if I asked, or basically consigned them for her. We got a lot done today at home. It looks much cleaner. I was going to upload some pictures on here, but it is not very happy with me, so you can just check out my link above.
I guess this is just a moment to be thankful.
Mickey is watering coco. She is so sweet. I am lucky to have such a nice little sister. Holden is here playing one of our game boys. Zack is sitting in the living room watching full metal alchemist. It is the final episode which is really sad.
But I guess I am going to get my butt off here. I need to brush my hair and get to cleaning.
I picked up some bread some HyVee tonight and Chris is going to make me french toast in the morning. I am excited, but then not really, because he going to make it for me at 6 in the morning. I need to call Linda tomorrow too.
Oh, and I so going to bed now, Jeremy is standing behind me singing the crabs song. It is from Dave Chapelle. I am not sure if I spelled his last name right.
