Today has been fairly uneventful. I watched a movie with Jeremy and got some laundry folded. I am actually holding Garth right now instead of Coco. She is laying down on the heater vent. I am not sure why, since it is not running. But my poor little Garth, we shaved his furr off his back to help him get rid of his fleas and it hasn't helped too much. I love him to death. I am just so glad he is such a good puppy. He hasn't put up a fight or anything. He is just so cuddly in his own way. Like he only wants your attention when he wants it. He has such a sweet gentle nature. I am so glad I got him. I don't know what I would do without my babies.
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.

First Day of Work

I had Chris take these pictures of me on my first day of work! I really like the uniform, but I think I look like a guy.


I actually took a risk and put an add on craigslist. I am hoping to find some one special. I have gotten a few replies and they have all been pretty great so far. There is one in particular I am interested in. I can't wait to see what I hear back tomorrow. I have been hanging out with Brandon a lot more. It has been really nice.
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.

First Day of Work

This is me on my first day of offical work!!! The first day I worked was on Saturday the 24th!!

Friday, November 23, 2007


On the biggest shopping day of the year, I but jewelry. I am going to put the pictures of my new stuff on here!
I really love jewelry and have a huge collection.
SO if you ever need a gift idea for me, you can never go wrong here!

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.
I learn something new every day. Like today I learned it takes eight 2 liter bottles of water to fill up the back of a toilet to flush. Also I have a new appreciation of indoor plumbing. But it seems my house is forcing relaxation upon me. Because without water, we can't do laundry or wash dishes, so it does limit my amount of cleaning I can do.
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 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.

First Snow

I have not blogged in a while. I keep intending to but, I have been really busy. Yesterday and the day before were my first two days of work. The orientation went very well. I wasn't too bored and actually had some fun. I am now TIPS certified. Our water went out here at the house, because Jeremy broke a valve. It really wasn't his fault. He just set a box on a pipe that was about to die anyway. When Chris removed it he told me that it was corroded. Things are going pretty well now. Today is my day off. I don't work again until Saturday. I am excited about it. I am not sure when I get off though. Because it says I work from 2pm to close. Well if you know Prairie Meadows, you would know that it is open 24 hours a day. I am going to be working part time, but as soon as a full time position opens up I am going to try to go after it for sure. I don't get any benefits or anything until I am full time. Me and Mom still aren't getting along. It really bums me out. She promised that her and Butch would help out with all these repairs with the house and they just let me down again. Chris is starting to pull through for me though. He has some one lined up to do the re-wiring. Plus we are going to be working on water proofing the basement soon. I am really excited about that.
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.

Okay, I know I have not written in a while. But I am writing now. Zack was evicted due to his behavior and that was bad. He got all confrontational and we had to call the cops on him and his day because they wouldn't leave the property. There was a fight between him and Chris and I got hurt. My wrist is badly bruised and I have a big cut on my thumb. He is to never come back here again. He lied and was rude and just terrible. He can't be trusted at all. He really showed his true colors.
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.

Sunday, November 11, 2007

I guess I had a pretty good day. I worked form 11:30 to 5:30. I hung bedding mostly. I was able to hang over $400 worth of bedding!! So I am pretty happy with myself. I hope this impresses my manager, but it probably won't. I went over to my moms after work. She came into GoodWill today. She got a bunch of clothes for the kids and some for Koty and stuff. She went and bought Christmas presents for the kids today. I am going shopping with her tomorrow. I have to get the check book balanced. I have been putting it off. I got three pairs of pants hemmed up for Mickey last night, but forgot to take them to her house. So I am going to take them over there tomorrow. I have to be at moms at 9am. She has some doctor appointments she has to go to in the morning. Then we are heading out to DesMoines together. Chris fell down the stairs last night. I was really worried about him. I think he is going to be okay though. I think he might have broke his wrist. But he says it is ok. He said he should be abck to normal tomorrow. I think he should just rest until it is entirely better. He played my pokemon game on the DS. Which is so much easier because of the pen pad.I got some puzzles today and I am going to start one soon.

Friday, November 09, 2007

Well today has been a pretty awesome day off. Me and Chris went and deposited our checks. I made the car payment. I nearly forgot last time!! But all is good now. We went and ate at the A&W Long John Silvers place. It is soooo good there, but can be pricey. But it is worth what you pay, because their food is good and not all greasy. We went and looked around Pappys Antique Mall. Then we went to the appliance store right next to it. We found a awesome fridge there. We are going to make payments on it. Which isn't bad because we are establishing our credit that way too. Plus it is perfect for the house. It is really cute, and neat looking. Plus we are probably going to go back and get a deep freeze for in the basement. They have one there that is the perfect size and for brand new, a awesome price. The brand new fridge all together with the installation included is just less then $500. SO I am pretty happy. I think we will be getting a lot more of our appliances there.

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.

Pretty Good Day

Today has beena long and interesting day overall. I had my interview and had to watch Mickey before and some after. I picked up Holden from school too. Jeremy went with me. It was nice to have his company. My interview went AWESOME!!! I got the job as a banquet server. I am really excited about starting there. I got Coco and Garth many different types of flea protection. I think I put too much stuff on Garth because he started acting sick just a little while ago. I am holding him now and typing one handed. So it is slow going. But I love to blog. Coco is sleeping on my lap too. We watched the movie The Invisible. OMG it was really good. I cried. Like a lot. I really liked the movie though. Jeremy recommended it for us to watch. He has really good taste in movies. Chris made tacos for dinner, but Zoe ate the leftovers while we were watching the movie. She was very stealth. My mom is working at getting on at Prairie Meadows too. She was talking to them today. I picked up my paycheck from GoodWill today too. Chris gets paid tomorrow. So we will be doing much better really soon. I bought food today. We really needed it. I need to re-apply all of us for food stamps. We need it really bad. There is never really enough to eat around here. Plus it doesn't help we can't keep any freezer food because we are still using a tiny bar fridge. Eh, but I am off to bed now.

I am so happy it doesn't make sense. But I don't have time to write I need sleep for my interview! SO TTYL!!!!!!!!

ummm thoughts

Well, I am here to write. But I am starting to maybe wonder if my blogs are boring. I don't know. I don't have a very interesting life. Jeremy had a friend over yesterday who brought his Wii. It was kinda cool. I got off work at seven last night. So I bought some stuff. I got this Proactive acne stuff. I thought it would be a good idea to use it, but I probably won't. I am like that. It is kinda cold in the house this morning, but it doesn't really bother me. I want to get dressed, but I know I need to wash my hair, and the whole idea of getting wet is just not appealing. SO I am sitting here putting it off. I need to buy groceries, but we really don't have the money to. There isn't much in the house. There is food, but only like odds and ends things you can make with meals. If I was dressed I could go over to my moms and eat. I am such a mooch, lol. But she loves me. Me and her talk about everything. I am supposed to start my period today, and I think that is why I feel so blah. I got that stuff last night and it is still on the table in bags. Which I am usually excited and want to show everyone what I got. But they are still there. Chris is in bed sleeping, because he got off work this morning. He went in early last night too. He starts his college in Jan. I am so proud of him. Speaking of proud, I am extremely proud of Jeremy. He has lost so much weight. It shows too. He can wear some of Zacks clothes. I am so proud of him. He eats right and goes for walks. He doesn't see the difference, but everyone has been giving him compliments.

Monday, November 05, 2007


I have been super busy today. I sorted some of my cards, then I sewed a few pairs of Mickeys pants. Zack fixed me some tator tots before he went to work. I went over to my moms and just got back. I got a call earlier and I have a interview at Prairie Meadows!! I am so excited! It would be so awesome if I could get a job out there.
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.

The Worst Day Ever

The title of this post says it all. I wanted to get on here and rant and rave about how bad my day was yester day. Because it was really bad. I had a bad day at work, and was in a lot of physical pain. Then I was so excited to see Todd, and we get in a fight on the way to DesMoines and he basically tells me what a worhtless piece of shit I am. Then leaves me at a gas station. Which I sat on the ground in the cold and cried for an hour. Because he made me feel like I was the one who was screwed up. But this morning I realized, I have life so much better then him. I got three awesome guys in my life who love me, and were completely there for me last night. I have great parents, and a great life all together. I don't need that kind of person, who feels they have a right to hurt others.
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.

Good Morning

Well, last night at work sucked. But I am feeling pretty good this morning. SO it is all good. Todd sent me some of the pictures from Tuesday, so I am very happy about that. I am about to smack Garth, because he heard Cy outside barking and is walking around going Arf! Arf! He doesn't even fulling bark, it more like a weird puppy sneeze. I have to run to WalMart today and get puppy wormer. Then I need to pack my bag for this weekend. I am very excited about everything we have planned.
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.
