This sounds like a good idea...

I am not so much feeling the holiday spirit this year. I have not started shopping, holiday decorations have been sitting in a box that I look at every day, and my tree has been up for a week with no decorations. I am just not feeling it this year. The sad part is that I am pretty sure if I didn't have family coming into town I would not be even attempting to decorate. Call it bitter, call it lazy; call it what ever you want. I want to wake up on a beach for Christmas. I think that is a good way to spend the holidays, right? I want to see palm trees not christmas trees. I guess that is just some good, old fashioned, wishful thinking.

I do love clean laundry...

Anyone who knows me knows that I take cleaning things VERY seriously and this includes laundry. How upset was I when my dryer died on Friday night while I was trying to de-wrinkle a shirt I wanted to wear. So after a few days and a weekend of not being able to wash clothes, I am happy to say my dryer is fixed. I never thought I would be so happy to wash and dry a load of laundry. I am a nerd, this I know.

Apparently I need more laughter in my life

So it is now official - I really do need to laugh more in my life and my sign came today. So I have wanted the words Live Laugh and Love scrolled across the wall in my kitchen. I finally got the correct size, font, and color. Don't you know that Live and Love go up just fine. Laugh, however was a different story. Seeing as how it was not perfectly centered between the other two words, that had to be fixed. Wouldn't you know it that the word is now messed up and I have to wait for a new one. Ain't that a bitch?

Should I take that as my sign to stop stressing over all the little things and kick back with a good laugh now and then?

Its Been a While...

So it has definitely been a while since I have posted. A lot has happened and many things have changed. To start, I have officially been single now for 8 months. That's right. After 3 1/2 years I had to end a relationship that I had become too comfortable being in. It is scary to think that one can spend that much time with another and share your home and bed with them, only to realize that you don't even know them at all. Things are never what they seem. I know that there were red flags every time I turned around, but then again I just wrote them all off as little quirks. I cannot believe that I was so stupid as to let someone in my life like that; to let them fool me and make me feel stupid and taken advantage of. This is where great friends come in. If it was not for them, my blinders would have remained on. I truly appreciate them more than they ever know. They helped me and supported me to make a very big decision in my life. Trust me, some days it still sucks, but I am very much so better off and a happier person.
I have learned to re-connect with friends that have seemed to fall by the wayside. I have had a great go of it and have met some new friends along the way. Unfortunately, I have even lost a friend or two along the way. I have had some of the craziest and longest nights that I have had in a long time. Got to love livin' the single life.
Through all this, I have also learned a lot about myself. I am not going to let people continue to walk all over me. If I don't like a situation, I leave it; If I don't like a person, I walk away. So, in my new fashion, I left my job and got a new one. It was definitely time to move on. It was getting to the point that I did not even want to get out of bed in the morning. This was not the traditional case of I don't want to go to work blues. I did not feel productive, useful, or appreciated. So, I moved on. I found a new company and took the job. I am loving the fact that I no longer have to drive down town every day. I no longer have to dish out money to park, am saving miles on my leased car, and don't have to fill up as often. I can even go home on lunch when I need to - how nice is that.
As much as things have changed, I still feel like I need a big change in my life. I want a bold statement. I want to be successful. I want to move. I just want to be happy. This means that it is time for me to be a better person. One that is more cautious of others motives, one that is more confident in themself, one that makes things happen and puts my best interest at heart. Sometimes I wish I could just pack up my house and dogs and move to the west coast. At least that way there would warmer weather, right? But, I have realized that is not the way things go. This means that I need to become a new person, the person that I want to be. I am ready to move on; To meet someone new and to take it slow; to be comfortable with myself and the image I have of myself; To be happy again. Game on life - I will win.

New Years!

So how excited am I for Martis' New Years party! It is going to be great. I got the light up hats, the cool glow in the dark bracelets for the dance party, and I am getting my pajamas ready because Martis said no one was allowed in if they did not have pj's on. The best part about it all is that we get to go to Martis' house. I love that place. There is always fun stuff to play with. This years toy of the evening I am sure, will be the Wii. This is especially true because she now has Wii Fit and I want to know what it says about me.

tax the sugar - that will get 'em!

I think that it is absolutely crazy that there are people in NY that want to tax sugared drinks to cut the obesity rates. Have they ever thought of taking some of the tax dollars that they make on the crazy high tax rate they have to offer nutritional assistance or exercise programs to people? Call me crazy, but I am pretty sure that adding a bit of tax may not so much make fat people want to buy a diet soda instead.

Really? A shoe?

Who throws a shoe at a US President? Idiots. In my opinion, if you are going to throw something at someone, at least pick an object that will make a mess such as a pie or dog poo!
