Another WOW :P [Friday

[ mood | sick ]

Well, it's been a while since I've been here again. Last time I was here was just a couple of days after surgery. Everything has healed fine, but not back on hormones until end of this month. That can be a good thing if will help the small bouts of depression and the hot flashes.

My mom came to visit around my birthday and that was a good time. Though my birthday at home was a wash. Should have stayed with my mom that night also.

Christmas and New years were okay. Not a lot happening. but my mom gave me a amazon gift card so I got myself a wii fit. I love it.

Valentines day sucked royally - but story of my life.

Gayle is looking hard for work. The other one - he doesn't go out that I see to look. I know I need to get rid of him, just haven't done it yet. I'm a wuss with things like that.

It's been a long few months with me wanting to give up and tell everyone to go to hell and kick at least one out, but I hold my temper and don't.

My job is great, i love the kid i take care of. He's wonderful. And the family is great. I'm more than just the nurse, I'm a friend and part of the family in a way. Been with him, and the company, for 2 years now. Sometimes it feels longer and others it feels shorter. It is definitely a good job.

And that's everything up to now. Yeah, not a lot, but guess that's why I don't get over here as much. All I do is work, play my vamp game and sleep. Or that's how it seems anymore :P. Though I have stayed sick since December - getting better for a short time then having it hit again. I'm tired of being sick but can't afford the doc. Again - story of my life.

Wow [Friday
August 29th, 2008
It's been ages since I've been here. Not because I haven't wanted to - but because I usually don't think about coming over here.

Lots has happened over the last few months.

In September my bf's parents came to visit. That was a joke and a half. And he said he was seriously thinking about taking the offer his parents gave to him - to move back to FL in 9 months, learn and then take over the family computer business. I must have took for granted I'd go with. With that tho I think I lost one of my very best friends because it wasn't long after that she quit returning my calls, quit everything with regard to me - or almost - I was still getting emails once in a while.

In November I had a cystic ovary and tube removed - also had endometriosis on them and was down for around 6 weeks. Found out my friend had had a death in the family so ok - could understand not hearing anything.

Fast forward to June. Still nothing from the one I think I lost - not even emails now. So now I wonder what I did and call weekly or every other week. June 1st - bf leaves for FL - with no real backward glance - not seeming to care how much it hurt me - especially not knowing for sure I wasn't going until a month before. So Gayle and I move to new apartment - better neighborhood and on ground floor.

July - Not calling so much - guessing I'm not someone she wants to talk to anymore - but haven't given up. Bf tells me he shouldn't have moved because not working out like he thought in FL so he is moving back. Go to Doc and find out endometriosis hasn't gotten better with shots I'd been taking so surgery again.

August - Get ready for when bf coming and for surgery. Bf arrives. Surgery on Aug 25th - total abdominal hysterectomy. Calls to friend even further apart. Called last weekend (weekend before surgery) and still nothing. At this point - I'm ready to give up. I have some stuff for her and she has stuff for me. She had talked about coming to visit before the family death but now I have no idea. Hell - I have no idea if I pushed her away or how - well I have one idea but only she can verify that.

Anyway - that's what has been happening with me.

*hugs* to you all.

Well now.... [Tuesday
February 26th, 2008
[ mood | sick ]

It's been a long time since I've been here, I know.

had surgery in November, on the 12th - cystic overy removed along with the tube, then found out I have endometriosis so am now getting Lupron shots - tho had to miss the one in January. come to find out because I had worked very little in Nov my benefits were stopped tho i could have done cobra but they never told me that at the time, so when got Cobra info, didn't fill it out - thought i didn't need to. Still trying to get bills and everything caught back up because of that lost time/lost money Nov-Dec, but slowly getting there. We had a good but quiet Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years.

We've had a good deal of snow - just had a storm this last weekend that dump a load of snow.

Have a best friend I haven't talked to in a couple of months and i miss her greatly. she had a loss in her family so I can understand and I call at least once a week just to let her know I'm thinking of her and love her. I keep hoping she'll call me back, but *shrugs* I don't know. I don't think she's ignoring me, but sometimes I wonder.

have sinus infection now, been off work two days now, and tho I know I need it, it's rough because I know I need the money.

Anyway - all else is going good. Things are going good with Ed and I and Gayle (tpeej) is working at WalMart Portrait Studio.

Just figured I'd do a catch up since hadn't been around much.



Happy Birthday to me on the 29th [Saturday
September 29th, 2007
[ mood | blah ]

Well - it was a birthday for any that care. Got my nails done, banked, went grocery shopping at Wally World and Costco. Then Ed and I went to see 'Good Luck Chuck' - it was good and very funny. then went to dinner at TGIFridays. It was good - I'd go again. Got some pretty flowers (see attached photo) from my mom and dad and some Barbie's from Ed :P. A check from my grandmother and nothing from my real father. Also got some nice cards - a good one from Gayle (tpeej) - nice one from my cousin, a real pretty one from my grandma and a nice one from my father - so yeah - got a card from him but no call or anything else from him. And got a IM wishing me happy birthday from sheltered_dream and another friend. got a few Happy Birthdays from a list group I'm part of and a couple from 2 in a group I run for the vampire game I play. Have one other place to check Got a cake from a place called 'nothin but bundt' - it's good - had a piece already :P:D. Anyway - that was my birthday - Woo Hoo - I suppose.

[ mood | happy ]

You Are 80% Good

You are a good person. You do the best you can to be ethical, fair, and moral.
And as you know, being a good person means making hard decisions... and following them through.
If you're confronted with an ethical dilemma, you will usually do the right thing.
Of course you do slip up. No one's perfect. But you do your best to correct your missteps.

You are also probably: incredibly honest, especially with yourself

Right now you are on track to being: A respected leader

To be a better person: Be kind to someone who is not very kind to you

Update About thekristeen [Sunday
August 19th, 2007
[ mood | hopeful ]

(Thought I'd share the update I received)

Hi all, Kris came out of the coma Friday afternoon and is communicating though still confused at times. They have not figured out the cause and are still fighting multiple infections and flucuating blood sugar levels and blood pressure. Will keep in touch, her sister kathy


About thekristeen [Tuesday
August 14th, 2007
[ mood | sad ]

I got this in an email from Kris' sister and thought I'd pass on to all (to anyone else that knows here):

Hi, for those of you wondering why you haven't heard from Kristeen I afraid I have sad tidings. Saturday morning the nurses called from the facility she has been at since January. Her blood sugar and blood pressure were both low and would not come up with medication so they were calling the paramedics for transport to the hospital. She had been having problems for a couple of days and very lethargic. Friday night when I left she said she hadn't felt good all day but was confused enough not to be specific with thew reason. Since Saturday morning she has been only responding to painful stimuli. They have run multiple tests, cultures and CT scans and have found no medical/physical reason for the "coma" She is breathing with assistance and her blood pressure sometimes drops but comes back with medication. As for now I keep trying for a response but nothing has worked. in my opinion she has just given up. I saw a change in her starting last month when they informed us they were looking for another place for her since she did not require any of their particular services any longer and was refusing to get out of bed at all. Someone mentioned nursing home and that was not a place she wanted to go.
I would appreciate you passing this new alone to anyone you may think would be interested. I will let you know is her status changes in any way.
Her sister, Kathy

[ mood | creative ]

I will send a 'handmade' gift to the first 5 people who leave a comment on my LJ requesting to join this PIF exchange. I don’t know what that gift will be yet, but you will receive it within 365 days. The only thing you have to do in return is "pay it forward" by making a similar agreement on your blog.


Hehe... [Monday

[ mood | calm ]

Hey vagablonde - saw your boyfriend yesterday at the Circus and he said to say hi and that he misses you and loves you :D. As do I. And yeah - I know - took me long enough from when you asked to get here :P.

To all - everything is good. had 2 weeks last month it was tpeej and I while my boyfriend was doing his annual training for the National Guard. And this last weekend I went to Winters, CA and watched my oldest nieces Becky and Katie in a Shakespeare play called "Love's Labor's Lost" tho the director of their production set it in the 30's. It was really good. I also had a good visit with my brother, his wife and my youngest niece and my nephew who is youngest of the four. And got to see my folks - which is good. Drove home after the play - 3 hour trip there and 3 hours back - so made for long afternoon/night - but wasn't bad. Had to take Ed (boyfriend) to armory on Sunday morning early cuz he had to work (he worked this last week at the armory which is good for the extra money that we need :P). Otherwise same ole thing. Love my job and only have one client now Monday - Friday.

That's all for me.

*hugs* all

Your Inner Retro Girl Is

Your Relationship is Still Building Strength

You're relationship is fairly strong, but you're still working on making things solid.
Make sure you're both treating each other with kindness and respect, even when things aren't going well.

This next one asks about 'tv reality shows' - I anwered what I would watch - if I watched any at all (which I don't :P)

You Are Ready to Get Married

You've done more than dream about the dress and the honeymoon
In fact, you spend a good deal of your time thinking about what makes a relationship work
And from your answers, it looks like you have the skills to say "I Do" and mean it
You've dated enough, learned your fair share, and you're ready to settle down.

Guys Think You're Easy to Be With... But Not Easy

You're definitely a flirt - and a good one.
But you also know that you shouldn't make a move on any cute guy who passes by.
You save your seductive moves for someone who already knows the real you.
That way, your sex appeal is just part of the whole package.

For the next one - I'm more flirt than it says - but I don't really flirt as much anymore so harder to answer the questions

You are 33% Flirt

You are a Great Girlfriend

When it comes to your guy, you're very thoughtful
But you also haven't stopped thinking of yourself
You're the perfect blend of independent and caring
You're a total catch - make sure your guy knows it too!

Your Love Life is Like The Princess Bride

"Since the invention of the kiss, there have only been five kisses that were rated the most passionate, the most pure. This one left them all behind."

For you, love is like a fairy tale - albeit a fairly twisted one.
You believe romance is all about loyalty, fate, and a good big of goofy fun.

Your love style: Idealistic yet quirky

Your Hollywood Ending Will Be: Perfectly romantic

(Don't know about that for what movie my love life is like - but slightly weird questions :P)

Hypothetical Question [Friday
May 25th, 2007
[ mood | curious ]

How do you tell someone you've been friends with for a while and that you care about very much that it's time to start looking for somewhere else to live.   You don't want to be a total bitch, but when only two of you are putting in for the household bills (and one of those may be hard to get to pay their share for this next month since the third person hasn't fully paid for this last month) it makes it just a bit harder.  You are getting the impression that this person isn't (doesn't want to) seriously look because they know that they will have to move, and they are making you feel like they are renting the room (and for free at that) from you and not on the lease (which they are) because all they do is stay in their room and don't help for keeping the rest of the house (or apartment) clean, don't help anymore for cooking dinner for household unless specifially asked (only cook for themselves and does their laundry) - yes, does go down and get (or check) mail, but no longer (that you notice) starts the dishwasher, or puts clean dishes away.  You feel like your being taken advantage of by a friend you don't want to lose, but you don't like (and are starting to resent) being taken advantage of.

So - how do you tell this person all this without sounding like a complete and total bitch and losing a friend?

Happy Dance [Monday

Magnificent Seven Season 2 arrived today

To Smallville fans - Sort of Smallville spoiler :P [Saturday
May 12th, 2007
[ mood | amused ]

I was reading a magazine today at work and saw something interesting regarding Smallville. Looks like they are going to kill off one of the 4 main characters. As it stated (and we all know) they can't kill Clark or Lex. That leaves Chloe or Lana. Now they didn't tell which it would be, just asked - and I'm asking also - which one it would be. So - what do the rest of you small ville fans think: Chloe, or Lana. I'll tell you my opinion (and Gayle's) after at least one person responds with a guess :P.
