since my last blog post:
Thursday: Went to Swichi's dorm room and picked him up. We went downtown and walked around. He bought incence and we had fun. Went home around 3:30 and made movies plans with ZamMan and then walked Laurey. Met ZamMan at the movie theatre...kinda cute...and we say The DiVinci Code. Movie was alright...little disapointed at the changes made from the book but was good overall. Beautiful scenery! Movie is worth seeinng on the big screen.
Friday: Swichi invited me over to take a shower with him. Passed on that but went over after I took my own shower. We talked and watched some TV and did a little kissing. Went home at 2 to make a carrot cake for my dad's B'day. Cake come out very yummy! Went to dinner with mom, dad and bro and meal was okay...very long! Swichi told me on IM that he gets a "feeling" when he first kisses a girl and when he gets this "feeling" he knows its not going to work out. I was like "No kidding! You are 18, I'm 31! Was just thinking we could have some fun together". So we decided to be friends.
Saturday: Slept most of the day. Wasn't feeling so hot, sore throat. Baked cookies and Tay and his friend Red came over and ate them. Watched "Rumor Has It" very cute!
Sunday: Up and out of the house around 11:30. Went into old old job to say Hi and peak around. Met old high school friend and saw X3. Movie was good...little disapointed but overall liked it. Went home and slept. Throat hurt more and more. Tay and Red came over around midnight and we watched movies, hung out. Tay went to bed and Red and I talked until they left around 6am.
Monday: Slept until noonish. Throat felt so much worse. Slept most of the day but Laurey and I walked 5 miles. Didn't do too much else, just relaxed.
Tuesday: Woke up at 7 with throat KILLING. Called doc office at 8 and was there at 8:45. No strep, viral infection...doc said to keep taking advil. *sigh* Came home and slept most of the day, again. Made spaghetti sauce and talked on IM. Was asleep around midnight.
Wednesday, today: Woke up around 9 feeling a tiny bit better but still taking the advils. Have been relaxing all morning. Took a shower but its so crazy humid/hot that my lotion wouldn't dry. Now sitting on my bed with the a/c blasting and fan blowing. Class is tonight and I'm all ready for it! Can't wait to go...love school already...:)
Sorry I didn't blog for a week. No reason really, just didn't. Have been reading your blogs though, don't worry!!:) L, E

S U N S H I N E ! ! !
Yesterday I spent the afternoon hanging out with Bethie, Kargurra and his parents. Bethie and Kargurra were working on their laptops, all hooked up to their jobs, and taking their conference calls. I just kind of hung out and we talked and I helped out a little around the house for Kargurra's mom. They invited me to dinner and we stuffed outselves with baked pork, potatoes, carrots and applesauce. Very yummy!
I had walked with Laurey and Tripper from my parents house and exchanged my school books for the right one and then left Laurey at my parents, so I picked her up on my way home. Crashed into a nap pretty much as soon as I laydown on my sofa. It had been one of the first days that I hadn't taken a nap or two during the day...:)
Oh, beautiful sunshine today!:) I've done most of my reading for class tonight and its not really the more entertaining, kind of dry, but interesting none the less. Laurey and I need to walk and I have to go out to Bethie's in-laws house to drop of some stuff that I forgot to give her yesterday. And I want to be at school a little early so that I can get a good seat.
I have movie plans to go and see the Divinci Code tomorrow so I hope that happens. Going to dinner with my parents and brother for my Dad's B'day on Friday, he's 61 on 5/27, and I'm going to bake him a carrot cake, his favorite! But overall no plans for the rest of the weekend. X3 is released on Friday and I really want to see that so I think I'll check that out. L, E

Today was Monday and my first day of school! I went and got my books at the bookstore around noon and managed to buy the wrong ones but I will exchange them tomorrow. I also picked up a parking pass so my jeep won't be towed, always a good thing. I left extra early for my class because the schedule said the room is in Joyce Hall but there is only a Joyce Student Center on the map so I was a little worried I wouldn't be able to find where I needed to go but Joyce Hall and Joyce Student Center are one and the same and I found the right room on the first try! There was another girl there, we were both 30 minutes early, and we chit chatted while waiting and that was nice. Her name is Nea (Nay-a) and I think we'll have fun together in class.
There are 18 people in the class and I didn't know any of them but it looks like a good group and some of us, including me, spoke up. I actually spoke up first! The teacher is kind of wacky but funny and keep me entertained. Sometimes he tends to mumble towards the end of a thought but that happens. In the synopsis of the class it says that we will be writting lots of papers...well we're not! We will have a quiz at the start of every class but he said it will be multiple choice or full in the 1 or 2 word blank. And there will be 2 tests but he'll give them to us as take-home. So I'm really feeling very very good about this class!! Oh, and the teacher let us go at 8, 55 minutes early.
Tomorrow I'm going to walk Laurey and Tripper from my parents house to exhange my books and then we'll check out the campus a little. The crazy thing is that I have lived within a few blocks of this school for most of my life. For 6 years I walked down the sidewalk right next to the school and I couldn't tell you where anything is on the campus! In my defense, they have expanded and built a lot of new and big buildings. But I did find my way around today and I'll check it out tomorrow a little more. The bookstore is teeny tiny but the lady that works there was really nice and said I could bring Laurey in sometime so I'll have to let her and Trip poke their heads in. Oh, and the notebook I bought has a pretty yellow color, it looks like sunshine...;)
I hope your weekend was good and your Monday was too...mine was! L, E

I used my parents vaccum on my livingroom, getting behind all the furnature and under the sofa and was quite disappinted with the 'sucking' power of it. But its better then nothing that is for sure. I did some of the kitchen and bedroom and bathroom but need to do some more at some point. And I need to do behind the sofa too. Its all mostly dayhair. I changed the vaccum bag hoping that would help but it didn't so I took off the air filter, it was full anyway, and that helped a tiny bit. So I guess tomorrow I'll attack some more.
I'm totally craving something sweet, maybe chocolate mint, but I don't know what I want and I don't have anything really in the house. Need to go to the grocery tomorrow I guess. I'm so sick of cereal and sandwiches and even cheese and salad so I don't know what to buy. I guess mac & cheese would be good so maybe I'll make that tomorrow. Or maybe spaghetti and meatballs. And I want to bake cookies again this weekend.
Once again it seems that everyone I know is all busy for their weekend and none of their plans include me. Oh well. This is the last weekend until the middle of August that I won't have homework so I guess I should enjoy it!!:) L, E

Most expensive dog in the world!
Last night I did get some good sleep but not as much as I would have liked. I did make it to my parents to pick up their vaccum and got to hang out with my dad for a few minutes which was a nice surprise. I also dropped off the clothes and stuff I have had in the truck of my jeep for a few weeks at the Salvation Army donation center. Traffic is crazy! I don't know when it got so bad but its insane!
I'm sleepy now and have been dozing for a little while. But as soon as I lie in my bed with the light off I'm wide awake. Its a crazy mixed up world!!:) ~E

Yesterday, today and Monday
Today I pretty much did the same as yesterday.... I couldn't sleep last night, was tossing and turning until 2 and then I sleep all day again.... *sigh* Its really getting to me but I don't know what to do about it. Laurey and I walked again in the rain but didn't get as wet since it was just sprinkling and stopped for a few minutes. Every place is really muddy. And I really need new hiking boots and sneakers.
Monday, May 22. I will be starting school!! I know I had said June 5 before but talking with my counselor I decided to take two history classes along with the law class. So I'm signed up for:
Legacy of World Civilization I (Students will explore the nature and evolution of the major contributions of world societies from their ancient Near East origins through the 16th century. In addition to gaining a valuable historical framework, the student will also build critical thinking skills by taking an analytical and thematic approach. Themes might include: the changing status of women; the human perception of the divine; the question of individual freedom; culture as a mirror of society; the development of Western thought. Students will be evaluated primarily on writing assignments.)
Legacy of World Civilization II (Students will explore the nature and evolution of world societies from the 16th century to the present. This course will build on HIS 210, both in regard to historical framework and developing academic skills. Students will study history through a thematic approach and focus more on challenging analytical assignments. Themes might include: the expanding role of women; the influence of nationalism and imperialism; the expansion of individual freedom; life in the shadow of war. Students will be evaluated primarily on writing assignments.)
Business Law I (An overview of the entire legal system, with an emphasis on contract rights. The essential elements of a contract, the breach of contracts and the remedies for breach are discussed. Business and consumer laws, including white-collar crime, landlord-tenant rights, real property interests and administrative law are presented.)
So I'm taking World Civ 5/22 - 6/30, I'll be in class Mon and Wed evenings from 5:30 - 8:55. Then I'll be starting Business Law I on 6/5 - 7/14 and that will be Mon and Wed mornings, 9:30 - 12:55. And I'll finish up the summer with World Civ II from 7/5 - 8/11 and that is Mon and Wed evenings, 5:30 - 8:55, same at level I. Wow. I'll be in school in just a few days! So excited!!:) I still need to buy my books and they are crazy expensive too so Daddy is going to need to cough up the credit card for some help with those.
Tomorrow is Thursday. No plans...hoping to get over my sore throat and maybe see some sunshine! But I don't think the sunshone will happen. So I am putting clean sheets and blankets on my bed as soon as I'm done here and I'm hoping the snuggly-ness will help me go right to sleep. I'll let you know! L, E
PS- The mascot for my new school is a beaver...........feel free to laugh!

Happy brown stained carpet weekend
I really want to take out the carpet in the livingroom, its really nasty from Laurey's 'deposits' and her running around. And I have always prefered wood floors anyway. I really can't afford to but wood flooring or a new carpet but maybe if I look around I can find a deal and get some daddy help.... I'd also like to paint the walls in the livingroom, kitchen and bathroom. Dad mumbled something like "yeah" when I talked with him about it a week or so ago so I'm hoping I can get his help on that project too. Have to wait and see.
Today is rainy and cold and I just want to curl up and sleep. I hope your weekend is better then mine!!! L, E

Its raining today and going to rain all weekend. I don't like the rain so much, makes me feel lonely and sad. I have tried to make plans with some friends for this weekend but everyone either has plans with other people or they are too busy to call me back. *sigh*
I watch "Aeon Flux" last night and it was alright. Kind of predictable and it seemed like I have seen it in a combination of a few different movies, "The 6th Day", "Minority Report" and "The Matrix" Trilogy. But Charlize Theron is so beautiful...sure wouldn't kick her out of my bed! Didn't do all too much yesterday, just more picking up and cleaning around my house and organizing and stuff. Laurey and I went to the dogpark and she played there for about an hour while I walked around with her. There weren't too many other dogs there but Laurey had fun playing and I got to pat some extra dog backs.
The landscapers came and mowed the yard today, finally! I love the smell of fresh cut grass and with the light rain at the same time it smelled really yummy. Laurey is on her dogbed, chewing on a bone and all happy cute. I was hoping it would stop raining so we could take a walk without getting soaked but I think we'll have to brave the weather at some point for our exercise. L, E

All white and clean
I went to the grocery today and bought some magazines, I have a small addiction to them. Bought some food stuff too. I love the grocery...:) Went into Kohls too and picked up 2 more tank tops with the little straps, addicted to them as well. And I bought a cute jean skirt that is teeny tiny but fits me as long as I don't want to breathe too deeply...;) Just need someone to be checking my ass out it in and maybe even touch....
Some friends of the family are coming into town this weekend. They are from Australia and own and live on an actual sheep farm. They are very nice and I'm looking forward to seeing them again, its been at least 10 years since I last did. I think we are having a BBQ Sunday evening for Mother's Day so I'm thinking I'll make raspberry pie and deviled eggs. Yummy! Do you all have plans for Mother's Day? Don't forget, its this Sunday!! L, E

It was the weekend
Went home and relaxed and dozed a little. Talked on the phone with a friend or two. I went over to a friends house just before 5 and met with another friend there. Hadn't seen JH for quite a few years so it was nice to hang out together again. He took me out for dinner at Sirolin Saloon, so yummy, and then we went to my house for him to see Laurey and to talk for about an hour. Then we went back to other friends house and another old friend was there too. All 4 of us went to see Mission Impossible: III. Big action movie with cheesey lines...kind of what you expect from Tom Cruise. Overall it was bang bang good. Worth seeing on the big screen.
Was home around 11:30 and called my friend in Canada and he was so sweet to hang up from his game addiction to talk with me. We didn't talk too long since another friend beeped in ad then I was asleep just after 1am. Slept through the neighbors alarm Sunday morning, woke up at 9:30. Dozed and relaxed all morning which was nice. Talked with Dad around 1:30 but he had invited my brother to see go to the movies with us so I decided not to go. I was hurt but I had expected him to ask my brother along too and since I don't want to be anywhere near my brother and I didn't want to fight with my dad over it just bowed out.
I went shopping for her sneakers since my old ones are just about dead. I couldn't find anything I liked so I went over to Kohls and bought a pair of shorts and another tanktop. I am really addicted to the cute tanktops with the little straps. So comfy! Laurey and I took a nice long, 3.14 mile, walk around 6. We played with some other dogs and had a nice chitchat with the dog's mommy. I had made a tomato pie earlier in the afternoon so I had that for dinner, very yummy! Relaxed and watched a horrible movie, Star Trek Nemesis, and then some tv. Was asleep by 11:30.
Now its Monday morning... I was awake when my alarm went off at 8 and now its almost 10 and I am going to take a shower pretty soon and find something fin to do outside of my house for today. Laurey is sleeping on the floor, snoring away. I hope you all had a nice weekend and I want to hear all the details!!:) L, E
Friday, May 05, 2006
Came home and took a nap. Wish I hadn't but I couldn't keep my eyes open. Feel kind of groggy so hopefully I'll sleep tonight. I'm watching the movie "Abandon" with Katie Holmes (pre TC) and Benjamin Bratt. Its actually pretty good. I had rented it before when it first came out on DVD and can't exactly remember the ending. I wonder what will happen...:)
So tomorrow I'm going to the baseball game with my dad and then dinner with an old friend, will be a nice day and I'm looking forward to it. Its just after 9:30 on Friday night and I wonder what you all are doing. Hope you are having a nice evening and you have a nice weekend too!! L, E

to finish off the day
One of my friends was suppose to come over and hang out with me tonight but he canceled again. He has canceled plans with me so many time and I think I might have reached my breaking point with him. He had a good reason but I'm still hurt and frustrated. Oh well. I guess I'll just see what happens.
Laurey is snoring on the floor, so cute. I was drowzy all day and now that I should go to bed I'm not anymore. Go figure. *sigh* Maybe my doc will give me something to help me sleep tomorrow at my appoitment. I guess I'll go to bed soon. Hope you are having good sleep! L, E
Rain and sun
Yesterday I did get my lazy ass out the door and to WalMart and bought a cute little $10 cordless phone for my bedroom. The regular phone they had just looked so cheep, was $5, that I didn't think it was worth it. I still need to get a regualr phone that doesn't need power just in case of no power but I'll shop around a little. The phone was the only thing I bought at WalMart! I had forgot to check what kind/size battery I need for my old cordless phone so I'll have it to get that next trip.
This morning Laurey and I lay in the sun for a little bit. I have been so sensitive to the sun on my face that I didn't want to be out for more then a few minutes. I have gone to using the Retin A only 2 times a week, it was just killing my skin and face using it every other night and my skin looks a lot better now. I have my pitcher outside with water and tea bags to make more sun tea, I've been drinking it nonstop lately!
Mother called this morning, I really didn't want to answer the phone but I did. She just wanted to get a couble of jabs in before she left for the weekend. She's doing some bike ride through the 5 bouroughs of New York City this weekend. I'm suppose to go see Mission Impossible III with my dad on Friday, and I have my 6 month check-up doctors appoitment tomorrow too. Saturday an old friend is coming up from Manchester, NH and we are going to have dinner and watch a movie or something. I haven't seen him in years and we useto be pretty good buddies so it will be fun to see him again! What wild and crazy weekend plans do you all have? L, E
Monday, May 01, 2006
Yeah, not telling you here. Haha.
So I'm having phone problems. First it almost never rings and when it does ring and I'm talking on it then it dies. Well my cordless phone dies and now the little phone in my bedroom is making crackling noises so it need to be replaced too. I ment to go out and do that today, phone shopping, but I didn't get up enough energy to go to the store. But Laurey and I did walk 2 miles so thats good. And I made sun tea.
I hope your Monday was good, as good as a Monday can be. L, E
