Month: November 2006


I’ve been tagged again, this time by adamselzer.

Once tagged by this entry, the assignment’s to write a blog entry of some kind with six random facts about you. Then, pick six of your friends and tag them; no tag backs. This explanation should be included.

1. I edit. Constantly. Even when I’m in the store, or reading a magazine, my mind is looking for errors and mistakes. Often, things jump out at me if I’m not consciously looking, so I really cannot turn it off.

2. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. I HATE the sound of footsteps. Especially clicky high heels. Ugh.

3. I enjoy making fart noises with my mouth.

4. Mushrooms growing out of the ground give me the heebie-jeebies. They’re soooo gross-looking. There’s just something not right about how they pop up out of nowhere. Seriously, if I see any, even in a picture, I freak out. Ewwwww. *chills*

5. Before pink, my favorite color was purple. Before that, it was light blue. Before that it was peach. Before that, yellow. And before yellow, guess what. Yup, pink. Ha.

6. Solitaire, Text Twist, Boggle, and Hidden Pictures are very effective means of procrastination for me.

I tag:

helenatural, cassidyselzer, goaliej54, hybridpeach, swankivy, and newlifeinstpaul. Get to it!

I can’t stop playing the Hidden Pictures game on the Highlights for Kids website. Especially the ones with all the cool sound effects. Sad, huh?

I went home early yesterday and stayed home today. I slept a lot, and woke up a bunch of times today barely able to swallow because my throat and ears hurt so much. Things are still not ideal, but at least the rest of me feels close to normal. Or maybe I still AM sick, because I did the dishes, and you know how I hate to do dishes.

Drinking TONS of orange juice. I have to go back to work tomorrow, feeling better or not, so I hope the OJ helps. At any rate, I will be going to bed pretty early tonight.

Just went through and read all of my Sarah Dessen books. Not in order again, but close enough together that I began recognizing patterns and other characters making cameos. I LOVE when authors do that. But her main characters all attend at least one party, there is always a group playing quarters or cards, and people drinking (ew) beer. I got excited once I recognized places and characters and things all interchanging. Good times. I hope I get to publish more than one book so I can do that, too. Who am I kidding? I hope to publish ONE book. *sigh*

Anyway, I’m not going to sit here getting all depressed and whatnot. It’s probably time for me to eat some dinner, curl up with a good book, and make an early night of it, huh? :) ‘Til next time.

Thankful for…

1. Having a roof over my head, food to eat, clothing to wear, and material goods;

2. A perfect little boy;

3. Friends and family who love me;

4. Books to read;

5. A God who doesn’t give up on me no matter how angry I get at Him, no matter how much I push Him away;

6. A job I like.

…for letting me open my eyes today
for hearing all the things that I couldn’t say
for being strong when I thought I was going to break
for never letting me go
I just want you to know
I’m grateful….


I’m fighting a cold now, compliments of my little one. I’ve been trying to get a lot of rest, but not drinking enough fluids. The thing is–the OJ I got free from Meijer smells like armpits. Who wants to drink that? Ugh.

But if it’s not spoiled or rancid or whatever happens to OJ, I will go ahead and drink it. Anything to get this annoying feeling of bleh out of me.


Aidan really wants the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse for Christmas. After watching the show on Saturday morning, I can see the appeal. It’s such a colorful and pretty show, perfect for preschoolers and their mommies who happen to like Mickey Mouse as well. :) But the clubhouse is back ordered 8 weeks! And the people selling it on eBay or Amazon are charging twice as much. My mother said not to worry, that she’ll get it for him somehow. And the show really is cute. And Aidan deserves it. He’s going through a lot now even though he doesn’t really know it, and he’s such a little trooper. He’s been so great. So great. Such a good sport.

That’s the hardest thing to deal with. Leaving him. I enjoy the breaks, but leaving him is hard. Last night was hard, but I didn’t cry on the way to my apartment like I have in the past. I know he’s okay, but I’m a mom. And moms always feel some sort of guilt. At least, this mom does.


I’m off to bed again. First I’ll drink some OJ, then take some meds, plus my other pills. Work tomorrow is a tossup. We’ll see how I feel. I don’t have much sick time, though. This morning I went in with a fever. Eep.

‘Til next time…

Uh Oh…

I feel a scratchy throat coming on. :(

Maybe it’s just temporary. Although I was around a very sick and feverish little boy the past three days.

Eek. I think I’ll take some zinc and go back to bed. I’m fighting this thing!
