The Holidays

Hey everyone,

Well, Christmas is over - and New Year's is just around the corner. I have my fingers crossed that 2008 will be my come back year! More excitement, more travel, just more, well, everything. 2007 was more uneventful then almost any year I can remember. I didn't do much, I didn't travel anywhere, and I didn't do any of the things that I love to do. Part of that had to do with job stress, losing one, starting another, not having the money to do everything, etc., etc., - but realistically, I just wasn't motivated. I didn't really care that much about anything. I don't know what my problem was. I didn't even blog for crying out loud.

So, 2008 is going to be better, because I am going to MAKE it better. I'm the only one who can after all. I already have a trip planned for the first part of April. Now granted, it's just to Reno - but it's one of my closest friend's 40th birthday party (FORTY HOLY SCHNIKEY!), so no matter what it will be a good time. I have other tentative plans for later in the year, but we'll see what pans out and what doesn't.

My sister bought a new house, so a trip down to see her and the kids is a must. And chances are there will be more than one - she informed me that the house has 5 bedrooms, one of which is designated just for Auntie Siesha. That's VERY exciting! I can't wait to see it in person! I'm so happy for them. The kids are going to be thrilled to pieces.

Now if I could only afford to buy my own place... soon enough I hope! It's my "before I turn 40" goal. I have a review coming up in a few weeks, which should produce a raise, because - let's face it - I RULE at work. I know what I'm doing, and I do an awesome job. Hopefully it will be enough to put me on the right path, but honestly, in the mortgage business, ANY raise is a good sign.

And on that note, I'm going to enjoy the rest of the first day off in a 4 day weekend. You all do the same, and keep smiling - a new year is just around the corner.

Who'da thunkit!

I know I've been gone forever and a day, but life was just well, boring to be honest. Some neat things happened - I got a new job, with a major company that should NOT be folding any time soon, I've made some really cool friends there and it was a pay raise. I guess in retrospect, maybe not so boring? Maybe I just assumed it would be boring to everyone else.

So anyone who has read my blog in the past probably remembers hearing about a guy I was seeing. Ya, well, I went to his wedding - no no, not to me - to his freaking WEDDING! mm hmm, ya. And then he called me a couple days ago, and well, there's now going to be a baby. a freaking BABY! Now, if I listen to critics out there, I should snuff all of my feelings and just be happy for him. Which I am, I really truly am. It just hurts my feelings a little bit. I can't help it man, it is what it is. It didn't help with his dad telling everyone over and over and over and over again at the wedding that he didn't think his son "would EVER find her. No one was EVER right for him." Ya pops, I'll give you right! HA! It's all good though, I'll get over it.

So anyway, I will do my best to keep up with my blogging, thank you for the support and I'll stay with ya!

Next week we'll talk about Paris Hilton! No wait, Brittney Spears!!! Lindsay? Naw, screw that - ain't gonna happen kids!

Happy Saturday (it is, after all, THE GREAT DAY OF THE WEEK!)

Huh. I don't know what to say.

Anna Nicole Smith Dead

Anna Nicole Smith has died in Florida, her attorney, Ron Rale, confirmed to MSNBC Thursday. Sources say Smith was rushed to the hospital after being found unresponsive in her hotel room at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla., where she was staying with her companion, Howard K. Stern. "At 2:49 this afternoon we were advised by hospital personnel that Anna Nicole Smith died," Seminole, Fla., police Chief Charlie Tiger told reporters. "Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family." Her 5-month-old daughter, Dannielynn Hope, was not with them, sources say, but is being cared for in the Bahamas by the mother of Shane Gibson, a high-ranking Bahamian official who is a close friend of Smith's. Before learning of Smith's death, Rale told PEOPLE, "She hasn't been well the past few days, she's had cold and flu symptoms." According to Access Hollywood, she was rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital shortly after 2 p.m. ET on Thursday.
On Wednesday, a Los Angeles judge had ordered Smith, 39, and her 5-month-old daughter Dannielynn Hope to submit to a DNA test by Feb. 21. The test is tied to a paternity lawsuit filed by photographer Larry Birkhead, who claims he is Dannielynn's father. Smith's companion, Howard K. Stern, is listed as the infant's father on her birth certificate. Anna Nicole Smith had been enjoying a vacation weekend at the Hard Rock Hotel. According to Julianne Carelli, the public relations and advertising manager at the hotel, Smith checked in on Monday night and was due to check out Friday. Carelli says Smith was a "frequent guest" and celebrated her last birthday at the hotel and casino and filmed a TrimSpa video there.

Even though it still chaps my ass it wasn't us Seahawks. ;o)

New Year, New..... whatever

Wow it's been a long time. I haven't had much to write about, well, actually, I've had a ton to write about - just not much I wanted to share.

Work hasn't changed. I'm thankful to still have a job most days, but there are times... boy howdy are there times when I wish I could huck it all and just go away to someplace, well, different. Being as I'm all "responsible" and shit, that probably isn't going to happen any time soon.

Let's see, what's been up. Well, my ex is getting married - and for some WEIRD reason everyone seems to think I should just "get over it" and suck it up. I understand that for the most part, because we stayed friends. And we really are friends. I went out with him and his fiance' (who, on a side note, he's only known 8 months, moved in with after about a month, and her daughter was calling him daddy after about 3 months. Huh.). It was um, uncomfortable? Weird? HARD for me? I don't know how to describe it. I don't think they felt it, I'm VERY good at hiding when I'm uncomfortable, and they called and invited me over for Superbowl Sunday. I don't know that they would have done that if they felt at all uncomfortable. Now, the thing is, that he can never know how I feel about this. He deserves to be happy, and he deserves his "friend" to support him in everything. I just really wish sometimes that the people around me, the ones who have no vested interest in him or what he's doing, would take a minute to shut the hell up and just let me feel badly about this for awhile. It's not easy, and quite frankly it sucks. And I know it may sound petty and childish. I understand that, but it's how I feel - which means it's not wrong. Deep in my heart though, after all of this ranting and raving, I truly wish him happiness. Which is why I will never talk to him about how I feel about all of this. I'm sure everything will work out for them. She's really quite nice.

The whole thing put me in a bit of a "mood" though. I'm having a very hard time shaking it. My friends have their own stuff going on, I hate to bug people with all my petty crap. (Not petty to me, but petty to most everyone else), so I am now going to just throw it out into cyberspace instead.

Other than that, well, there's been nothing all that exciting. I had a great Christmas with family, and I get to have ANOTHER Christmas next week with my sister and her kids (see above, aren't they the CUTEST!) are finally making the trek in from out of town. That will be fun. I missed watching the kids open their presents. I'm very excited to see them! My unconditional love from the kids. You gotta LOVE that!!!

The other notable thing that has been done so far this year was a trip I took to the Ocean for a few days. It was SO WINDY, but it was incredible. A friend at work loaned me her house, and Pam and I went and had a blast. It was relaxing, we played a little at the casino, read, relaxed, went down to the beach for a minute until we almost got blown into the sea! But it was exactly what I needed.

Well, for now that'll have to do. I have to actually do some work. I'll try to keep on it from now on. Happy Friday!

Happy St. Patrick's Day and junk

Ya sorry, I've been busy and I was sick for 10 days! 10 DAYS! That's ridiculous. But I'm on the mend now, so I'll try and post more. I don't have a lot of time right now, but I did want to say Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!

I hope everyone finds their four leaf clover. ;o)

Last week was friggin CRAZY, it was crazy I say.. work sucked, and I was running around all week long. It's a new week, people are back at work, and I can relax a little. Thank GOD!

Last night I watched the Oscars. Well, most of them. I missed the first 45 minutes because who knew they'd be on at 5:00 on the West Coast? I didn't even turn on the TV until 5:45 when I realized I had already missed some of it. SAD! But I was happy to see

Ms. Witherspoon winning that Oscar. That was a very sweet speech she gave.

I was also partial because just Saturday I finally watched Walk the Line. What a GREAT flick!!! I totally loved it. That whole cast was awesome. LOVED IT! I also saw Crash a few months back, that too was an awesome movie. But that one was hard to watch, at least for me. But it was so well done, it deserved the win.

That's all for now, I have to get back to work. Happy Monday!
