Braved killer traffic to get Laurey to my parents house this morning. My condo was being inspected before they do blasting for the bridge construction project. I wasn't taking a full day off from work to sit around and wait to hold my dog down while the inspectors look around. Made it to my parents after work, traffic was insane again. Dad and I walked with Laurey and Tripper but not very far. Dad made very yummy chicken for dinner.
I wore my pink clogs again today, so comfy and cute.
I'm sure I have more to say but I can't think of more so I'll just say G'bye and G'nite. L, E

wkend in No NY
Spending time with Grandma and Aunt Mil was nice. They are both doing well for being 88 and 95. I wonder if I will ever be that old.
Laurey survived the kennel once again. Her bark was a high squeek, so cute. Poor baby. She is always happy to go there and happy to be picked up. I don't blame here, its always nice to come home and get to sleep in my own bed. L, E

Going to G'ma's tomorrow, have to drop Laurey off at the kennel and be to mom & dad's by 9 and then I'll be sleeping the whole way there. Dad will be driving, I think we're taking his Toyota Tacoma truck...such fun. Doing laundry right now so I have some clothes to wear to church on Sunday morning.
So cold, wish I had hugs and kisses. No one is online to IM with me so I guess I'll go back to the sofa and heating pad and then to bed soon. How does that song go? "Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, guess I'll eat some worms...." L, E

Since Laurey is going to the kennel for the weekend when I'm in Canton, NY I had to get medicine picked up for her at the vet. Luckily my co-worker and friend Heather drives right by the vet office on her way home so she's picking it up for me. Had to float a check at the grocery but since tomorrow is payday its all good. Had onion rings and a sandiwch for lunch...so yummy!
Leaves are starting to turn colors and fall to the ground. Wish I had someone to go hiking with and find a nice quiet place to "be alone".... I know just were I'd want to go. Oh well. L, E

so smart you have no idea
Yes...I'm also a little goofy today but I'm also smiley. I like smiling. I like me smiley. I hope you do too.
This weekend my dad and I are going to visit my Grandma and Great Aunt in Canton, NY. I was looking forward to the visit when my dad called me last night and asked me to go with him but tonight my mom told me that we are going because my Grandma has announced she isn't going to Florida for the winter (she has to go to keep her FL residence which she needs to keep) and my Great Aunt Mildred has just moved into an assiated living place and I guess she's bitching nonstop. So I was asked to go to talk with my Grandma and see if I can get her to say why she doesn't want to go to FL this winter and to talk with my Aunt Mil and do what I can to make things better. Should be fun. Actually I don't mind because I would be talking with both of them anyway and having specific things to talk about actually makes it easier. Plus I might get a trip to FL out of it if my Grandma goes and I get to visit her.
Laurey and Tripper (my parents dog) did about 4 miles today, so nice outside even thought the sky was cloudy but the temperature was nice and there was a wind blowing. And I look exceptionally cute in the pretty pink shirt my bestest friend Bethie gave to me. I'm at my parents house right now, its Tuesday so I was here for dinner, and I need to go home and do some laundry, such fun. L, E

Wkend was ok...rainy and yucky outside but Laurey and I finally got out and walked on Sunday 3.5 miles, did 4.5 today and it felt good to get my fat ass outside. Sunday was Evan's B'day...he's 31! HAPPY BIRTHDAY EVAN! I know he doesn't read this but I'm saying it anyway.
So smile and be happy because life is good! L, E

Rainy and gray day today, nothing much to do.... Talked on the phone a little and watched some tv/movies. Need to do some stuff for the condo meeting this week, gotta love procrastination!
I think this will be a good week coming up. What do you think? L, E

Toys R Us
Friday was a good day. I was smiley and pretty much happy and that just pissed off my coworkers and that helped too. Had my 1st physical therapy appoitment and that nice lady told me that its not perminate damage to my arm, just the muscle was strained and it should heal so I was happy to hear that. She did the ultrasound and some electric shock thing and then gave me a splint for night and taped my wrist and arm so it would help me keep in in the correct position. The tape really helped, wish she could tape it for me every morning before I go to work.
Was pouring rain when I got out of work. Laurey and I tried to walk but within 5 minutes of being outside we were both soaked so we went back home. The elevator was broken in my building so I harassed the fix-it guy a little...I thought I was being cute and witty but I think I might have just been annoying.
Its Saturday morning and I just pulled the tape off my arm and now my skin hurts. Such is the price I pay. Going to be a rainy weekend...oh well. L, E

So I have another permanent injury from my job. And its a job I don't even like. I know...I have to stop that bitch because I'm the only one who can get me a new job and get out of the workplace from hell. I just feel like I'm kicked down so much there. Anyway....
I have 3 friends on my life who I truly care about and would do anything for. I have had people come in andb out of my life at different times but right now I have 3 that I care about so much sometimes it hurts. And I don't want to lose these 3 ever. And now I have hurt one of them. I should have known...I always fuck things up...it just seems to be what I do.
I have no idea how I have stayed friends with Bethie for so long, best friends even. I guess its because when we fight its big and teary and then we get over it with a yummy meal. It works for us, has for a long time so far. I am so lucky to have her for support, advice and a kick in the ass when I need it. And Evan is my best guy friend, I can ask him the "man" questions I have and he's doesn't hold back with me. He also is protective and encouraging and knows me almost too well. And I tell the poor guy _everything_.
And then I have my friend who I insulted. I don't know what to say to him except I am sorry and I hope he forgives me.
I was told last week that I'm a "discustingly" nice person. It wasn't a compliment. But am I as nice as I seem to be. I thnk I am nice. I say I am nice. But I don't really know that I am. I guess you'd have to answer that for me.
When I started blogging I promised myself I wouldn't make it emotional and mushy and all lovey-dovey. I guess this post today kind of breaks that promise but my mind has been racing all day and after crying in my jeep so hard I couldn't see and then walking Laurey for 3.5 miles and crying the whole time and then coming home to an emply house with no messages on my amswering machine again, I just had to type more then my usual day crap. Forgive me. L, E

This week hasn't been my greatest other then work. Yesterday my favorite sandel broke and today the ink ran out of my New York Yankees pen. Both are replaceable...I'll be returning my broken sandels, hopefully I can get new ones of the same, and I can buy a new ink thing for my pen. Just sucks when it happens, you know.
I so need a vacation....anyone have someplace nice I can come and visit? I have 9 vacation days left for this year. I want to roll over 5 for next year so I have 4 days, 32 hours, to use before 12/31/05.
I'm at my parents house right now since its Tuesday and I come here for dinner most Tuesdays. I guess we are all meeting at soime Mexican place downtown at 7, thats what my brother told me. My mom just called from the airport and he went to pick her up, she must have gotten on an earlier flight back from Munich Germany. I'll be sure to let you know if she brought me back a present.
Have been having strange dreams lately...I don't remember them all so that might be why they are so strange...oh well. Any insights? L, E

Other then that today wasn't all too bad...can't complain too much. Had promo orders to enter, did 7 of 12 pages so I'll have them finished by noonish tomorrow. Then I'll have nothing to do again.
Its freezing in my bedroom right now! My fingers are numb. Its really muggy warm outside, walking with Laurey was not fun and I was all nasty sweaty when we got back. I just turned off the a/c and opening the window because I'm so cold. Will probably be muggy warm in here in about an hour but right now I don't care. I had salad for lunch today and again for dinner, after finishing off the bag of peanuts and I'm already sick of salad which isn't good because I have stuff for at least 3 more. Oh well.
Oh...my new "Support our Troops" yellow rubber bracelett came today and I don't think I like it. Haven't decided. This one has the twisted ribbons between the words on it. My old one didn't and I liked the font the writing was in better. Oh well...I shouldn't have lost it.
I'm shivering cold and my fingers are numb so I'm going to go back to my sofa and cuddle under my blanket. Hope you are having sweet, sexy dreams! L, E
PS- Wkend was nice overall. Perfect weather and I got to hang out with Bethie and her husband Mark for a few hours. And I had 2 surprise phone calls and lots of smiles...:)

Didn't write last night, just didn't know what to say. It happens, yes I can be quiet! Plus I was only only for about a total of 10 minutes, no one on my IM to talk with me. Laurey and I walked 4.5 or so miles in the rain. Luckily it didn't start really pouring until the last 1/4 mile so while we were both wet, we weren't too soaked. Ordered pizza with pepperoni and mushrooms for dinner...yummy, but then I ate too much and my stummy was hurting. Would have rather had that really yummy salad at this place near my best friends house in CT. Have been drooling wanting that salad for awhile now.
No big weekend plans. Going to hang out with some friends. Trying to talk my dad into going to a movie. Should clean my house and jeep some, have to wait and see what gets done. So email me, write me, IM me, call me, let me know you are alive. L, E
PS- Next Saturday I'm going to my friend's little girls 2nd birthday party so I get to go present shopping this weekend for her and her bother!!

Laurey and I walked about 4.5 miles and it felt good. Its hard to keep up with my walking because I truely get bored walking. 4.5 miles takes about an hour and its quite dull walking around this big circle over and over, day after day. I know that once the time change happens I'll have to be driving up to St Michael's College and walking there and thats a little different, but there I have to walk around in circles too to get enough distance. I feel strange about complaining that I'm bored walking. I guess I could pick another "sport" to do for my daily exercise but walking is the only one I have found that is free that works for me and Laurey. I guess not totally free since I need new sneakers and hiking boots.
This will be a payday weekend...woohoo! So I'm going to go and see if I can find any good deals for the things I don't NEED so much as really want. While I don't NEED new sneakers and hiking boots, I do have a pair of each and I can wear them, they just have holes in them and no tred, I'd really like new pairs of each. Sometimes its very hard to tell between a want and need. Sometimes you make a want into a need too. So maybe I'll be telling you all about my new shoes this weekend...don't you just want to know every detail?!
Got a paper cut on both my pinkey fingers today...:( L, E

Monday and today
Today I so didn't want to get up and go back to work. Even though I get up at 7 every morning, when I know I have to go to work it just hurts. Tried on 6 shirts before deciding on my pink striped one with a collar and my jean skirt that is too big. Work wasn't too bad, solved all the problems and did my usual amazing customer service. came to my parents house for dinner, dad made spanish rice, very yummy. Walked with Dad, Mom, Tripper and Laurey, not nearly as far as I would have on my own but it was nice to have company.
Thats about it....just the usual SSDD. L, E

Sunday night at the fair
So off to bed...cuddled up all alone with my teddy bear. L, E

possible to really do nothing?
So after my shower I pretty much just went back to the sofa and tv and dozing. My friend Evan called but we just talked about if it was really going to rain or not. Finally, at 3:45 I leashed up Laurey and we took off for 4.5 miles. Lazy ass dog kept pulling me under trees so she could stop and rest. Got back and had my ass on the sofa again. Checked my IM list online a few times but no one was there to talk with so I sent a few emails. I even called a few friends to see if anyone wanted to go to a movie or something with me but everyone was busy or not home. Watched "The Fast and the Furious"...I so need to get a pimped out car like they have.
So I should go to bed at some point. Wish I had money so I could go shopping. I have so many ideas of surprises and things I'd like to do..just can't w/o $$. Maybe I'll count all the change in my Tigger bank today...that would keep me busy for awile. Any other ideas? L, E

So the week from Hell is over! Woohoo! Just 1 more day of covering and then I am back to my own job and being able to do my work to my satisfaction, not just doing the basics so I can keep up with everything. Have 2 sets of spreadsheet orders to enter next week...will keep me busy but thats just fine with me.
Dragged Laurey for 4.5 miles tonight on our walk. Had to stop for 1 "panting w/o walking" break for her. Felt so nice to be outside in the air and trees and nature. I really need to buy new sneakers and hiking boots. My sneakers have no tred left on them at all and my boots have a gaping hole in the left one. Was kind of hoping to make it until Christmas/B'Day for new boots but I don't think that can happen since I'm pretty sure it will snow before then. Have to wait for a couple of paychecks though since I have some other thing sI am saving up for. Don't you just love it when you have a friend who likes surprises...:) L, E

wow and thanks
Today was just chill at work...can't describe it with any other word. I don't so much feel like I'm waiting for 'the other shoe' to drop and that helps. I feel more that I know what I am doing or maybe its that I have accepted that I while I don't know exactly what I am doing, I can fake it well enough the others don't know. As long as I am my superstar, #1, bestest customer service agent selfI can be then its all good.
Laurey and I did 3.5 miles tonight in about 35 minutes...pretty good time. Felt good to stretch my legs and move my ass. No big plans for the long weekend. I wanted to go to visit my Grandma in Canton, NY but with gas prices well over $3 I'm not going very far. Oh well. Have a nice night everyone, I'm crawling into my bed now to read my book and then drift off to sleep. L, E
PS- Happy September! Woohoo!
