Happy day!

I am excited as this is my first day that I will be able to enjoy not having to study! I am actually going to do some things around the house, mow my yard and then hang out at the Mudhouse for awhile. I also am going to finish up these circle journals that I have so I can send them off and hopefully I am done with that. I will most likely wait till I am out of school before doing another circle journal. :-)

Last night I went out with a friend of mine for her birthday. We got downtown around 9pm and there wasn't that many people out yet. After walking around downtown for awhile, we finally ended up at the piano bar! I just love Ernie Biggs! It is quite an awesome place to hang out! It is always packed in there AND we ended up seeing Aaron Buerge from the Bachelor. It has been a few years since he was on the bachelor but he is HOT!!!! (The big for today is of Aaron!!!) My friend got her picture taken with him too! We asked some a group of people is we could sit at there table as they had two chairs that they weren't using. When they left, these HOT guys sat at our table! It was a fun time!

I am going to get busy with mowing my yard.

Lots of sleep!

Wow did I ever sleep! I went back to bed around 0500 this morning and slept till noon today! I think I have gotten around 15 hours of sleep! I just hope it last me all night when I am at work tonight. I am in charge today so I hope there isn't too much going on. That might be wishful thinking though!!! I am off to get my hair trimmed and then do a little shopping at Hobby Lobby for some ribbon then go to work! Later!

School is out!!!!

Yeah!!! I am excited about my 3 week break from school! I stayed up all night and got my papers done. This morning I was finally ready to watch Firefall and write about the music they played and the hours that the TV guide told it was, wasn't. I only got 10 minutes of it recorded! I tried to get ahold of the symphony that played and of course the lady that had the info was out for the day! I did what I could. It was too late for me to do something else. I also sat down and watch Cats today and wrote about all the music in it. I was so relieved that I got done with all this by 1230 so I could concentrate on studying for the final! YEAH!!!!

While I was trying to study this afternoon, my allergies stirred up! I have been sneezing like crazy!!! I went to the Mudhouse before school and was about to fall asleep - inbetween sneezing that is! I was sneezing all through the test. I was so excited about school being out that I was going to do something fun after class but I didn't want to go places being all sneezy! Plus, I had virtually no sleep also. I did run by Barnes & Noble and got the new Scrapbooks, etc. and Scrapbook Answers magazines and ended up falling asleep in my bed at 1900 tonight. I woke up at 0300!!!!!!! I am ready to get back to bed!

I am including a picture that was in my Intro. to Music book that is actually a pencil drawing but it looks like a photograph! It amazes me to look at it! It is a photo realism drawing. I just wish I could do drawing like that or just be able to draw! :-)

Less than 24 hours . . . . . . . .

till school will be over for me for 3 weeks!!! Here the day is almost over and I still haven't done anything towards homework! I am just not motivated but I am being forced to get things done now. I guess that will be my motivation!

I have trouble with my night shift schedule staying awake during the day. Today was no different! I actually got up around 0620 and got the trash out by the curb and was going to go back to bed but never did. I pondered around the house and then around 1230 I went and layed down to what was supposed to be for 30 minutes and then I woke up at 1630!!!!! So I finished getting ready, watered my garden and packed up my laptop and headed to the Mudhouse to get some work done.

I have to say I really enjoy my Napster account and I am currently listening to India Arie's new CD! I just love her style and really wish that I could have made it to St. Louis when she was having a FREE concert under the arch! Work got in the way. If I knew about this ahead of time I would have requested off. I am going to enjoy the tunes as I type up my fine arts report and do some needed research online! It will make it more enjoyable at least!

I took pictures of Chloe and Felix this morning. I am not sure where Pandora was for the photo shoot so I will have to get some new pictures of her soon. Pandora has learned she can sleep under my headboard of my bed and doesn't get bothered so I am guessing that was where she was at that moment! Chloe is getting fluffy again but her hair is still short compared to what it was before she got her lion cut. I really want to have there pictures professionally done and would like Chloe's hair to look like it used to so hopefully I can do that before Christmas and include them in cards! :-)

I had better get started with my homework so I am not here till midnight!

School is almost over!!!

I can't wait except I still have my research paper, 2 concert reports, type up my fine arts report and studying for the final! I have to get this all done by 1700 on Thursday!!!! I was planning to work on my paper today but I was so tired from work that I slept from noon till 2330 tonight! I actually feel like going back to bed but I think I am going to at least type up my fine arts report before going back to bed. I hope that my research paper doesn't take me to long. YIKES!!!!!

I have a little less than 2 weeks till my vacation from work and I can't wait! My sister is going to be off a few of those days too so we are going to do some fun things together with my nieces!!! I can't wait! I hope that my nieces get to spend the night and they don't have that much going on and we can go play in the fountain at Jordan Valley! :-)

I think before I start in on my school work I am going to straighten things up in my kitchen! I can't wait till Thursday as I am going feel relaxed after school is out! :-) Better get busy . . . . . .

I finally found Elsie's book!!!!

I called all the LSS in my town and none of them had Elsie's new book. Creations Unlimited said they will have it August 6 as Elsie is having a book signing party but I have to work that day so I thought I might as well go find it somewhere else. I called a nearby scrapbook store this morning and they have it!!!! I took a journey to the nearby scrapbook store and got me a copy!!! I am so excited to finally have her book! I really can't wait till school is out next week so I can hopefully have time to work on some of the challenges!

While I was at this scrapbook store I also got me some cool new stamps my making memories that are flowers! I can't wait till I can use them! I have actually had thoughts of stamping my mailbox with them to make my mailbox more exciting.

School is going to be over next week and I can't wait!!!! I still have a research paper and 2 concert reports to do and I need to type up my fine arts report. I was trying to do research today but I was getting way to sleepy while I was at the Mudhouse so I went home and ended up falling asleep around 8pm!

Since I don't have my lawn service anymore my grass is getting a little tall. I realized it really isn't that bad since it has been so hot here. The grass is the longest around my little garden from it getting watered. I hope that it cools off a little so I can mow my yard. The temps have been around 100 and that is just to hot to be mowing a yard!

Anyway, I work the next three nights at work and that is going to leave me cramming all of these homework assignments in at the last minute plus trying to study for a final!!!! I am kinda scared of this final as he always has had us write out definitions (no matching!!!) and all the definitions are free game! Out of 5 test we have had about 90 definitions so I need to know all of them. There are only going to be 15 on the test! YIKES!!!!!! I do believe I am going to party after class next Thursday as that is when my summer will start!!! :-)

The challenge for today is: List 5 things that put you in a good mood

1. Listening to music! I love listening to music and it always makes me feel better!! I try to listen to it often!

2. My new Sony Ericsson w600i cell phone! What I love about my new phone is the walkman and FM radio that is included in it! I sometimes will listen to music that I have uploaded to my phone on my break from work. :-)

3. My cats. They are always loveable and cute and always can make me smile!

4. Being outdoors (when the weather isn't so HOT!) and enjoying nature by taking in a hike at the nature center or going to a bike trail.

2peas blog challenge

I was 11 when I went to Disneyworld in Orlando, Florida. I don't remember the rides very well but the one ride that I remember was the ride inside Epcot ball. I remember that we were told that we were going to be going up 18 stories and thought that was cool and kinda scary at the same time!

Another ride I remember was on top of a building and it was airplanes. I don't think my parents liked that one to well. There was a button to control how high you could go and I guess my sister and I was keeping our airplane up kinda high! Which it was on top of a building to so we could see all of Disneyworld!

I remember that it did rain when we were at Epcot visiting the different countries and we ate meals at Germany, France and Japan. I will never forget the meal at Japan as we ordered yukatori (I probably spelled that wrong!) but we renamed it yuckatori! It wasn't a very good lunch.

I would really like to go back to Disneyworld someday as I am sure lots has changed since 1984!

Trouble with the lawn guy . . . . . .

Last night I woke up around 2100 with a phone call after sleeping all day. I decided after I got off the phone to look out in my backyard to see if my lawn service had mowed my yard and they didn't. I went to go get the mail and I had a bill attached to my mailbox from my lawn guy. At first I thought he was charging me for something he didn't do and then when I looked at the bill again a little later realized he had it dated for 6/27 - the last time he mowed my yard. I had mailed him a check and he has also cashed my check as I can see that it cleared my bank on 7/3. I even am able to with adobe reader see my check and see his signature!!!!! I can't believe it! He isn't keeping very good records of who pays him! I have written a letter to him stating the above and I am also said that I will no longer need his services as I am going to start mowing my yard myself so I don't have to worry about details like this in the future. It was nice having lawn service will it lasted!

A couple of tickers for fun!

WOW!!! School is going to be out soon! That means that I need to get BUSY!!!! I still have to type up a fine arts report and then do two concert reports. I also need to start my research paper! This class had went fast!

I can't wait till my vacation in August! I won't have to go to school or work! Just relax! I really hope that I can spend time with my nieces and we can run and play in the fountain at Jordan Valley Park and maybe they can even spend the night! That would be great!

Just wanted to add some tickers for a couple of events and actually need to go back to sleep as I work all night tonight! I also need to wake up and get my study guide done so if time allows at work tonight I can memorize all my terms!

Pet peeve - 2peas challenge

Okay, I couldn't think of a pet peeve earlier when I read the challenge for today but I have one now!!!!!

This happened while I was sitting in my allergy doctor's waiting room. There is this one particular lady that when she comes in she will sit in the waiting room and try to start conversations with anybody. She had a conversation with me one day and she was trying to have a conversation with me today but I was trying to study. I told her I hadn't started studying for my test tonight and I was crash studying for my test. I was hoping she would let me study but NO!!!! She would be quiet for a little bit but then "Let me ask you a question". Then she started telling me stories regarding her family!!!! I wanted to say "I am trying to study! Stressed out Student here!!!!" Then they called my name for my allergy shot and when I went and sat back down I started studying and then they called her name and she left. After she left I was able to get some studying done till I had to have my shots checked then I left to go to the Mudhouse to study.

I am still cramming for my test but feel like I have memorized enough. He is going to drop our lowest test score so this one might be it! I have 35 more minutes to study!

A normal day?

I accidently slept ALL day yesterday and had some things I wanted to accomplish yesterday. I thought since I slept all day that I would be able to sleep last night but I did! I fell asleep around 0230 and woke up around 0900 without my alarm! I had my alarm set for 1100 just in case I didn't wake up with my alarm. I feel somewhat normal today!

Today I have a test in my Intro. to Music class and I have done all of the study guide except the essay question. I need to get that done this morning and print out my study guide to start memorizing it! I plan to get my allergy shots today and then go to the Mudhouse and study! I hope that we don't have all 5 hours of class tonight but it depends how much material there is for next weeks test! Last week we got out at 1 1/2 hours early and I was so glad! I had only had one hour of sleep since getting off from work that morning and kept falling asleep! I went home and fell asleep without meaning to and woke up at 0400 with all the lights on, still in my clothes and I still had my contacts in! Ohhhhh, I was tired!

This morning I have enjoyed slowly doing what I want. I have been enjoying my favorite tunes from my Napster account. I need to get in the shower so I can get dressed and take care of my garden and flowers. Then find the answer to the essay question and then print out my study guide and spend the rest of the day reading it! I had better get busy!

Fun 4th of July!

I had a fun 4th of July with my sister and my nieces! We went to the "I Love America" fireworks show. I hope to someday be able to spend the day there and see the air show but since I worked the night before I had to get some sleep and was to tired to wake up early see the air show. We didn't arrive till 1945. We had planned on being there earlier but I slept through my alarm! I have some pics I need to upload from my digital camera still but I did upload some from my cell phone. I learned that my new phone has some awesome features! You are able to select different effects for you picture so my sister and I was curious what solarize would do. It is to much fun! I am going to add that picture here! I also took some videos from my phone of the fireworks show. I will have to play around and figure out if I can upload those here or not.

When the show is over, there is always over half the town wanting to leave to. When we parked I had everyone look at our surroundings so we could find my car later. I thought we did a good job on looking at our surroundings. We got lost trying to find my car! There were other people lost to so I didn't fell as bad . . . . I just remembered we parked near a tree with the RV's behind it. I didn't realize how many other trees there was till we were walking back! I have decided I should never go walking in the woods as I would for sure get lost and then I could film the next Blair witch project!!! :-) It normally takes about 2 hours to get out of that huge field with everyone leaving at the same time BUT while we were waiting and my nieces getting anxious cause we weren't moving, we noticed all these other cars behind us moving so we decided it would be a good thing to check out. Good thing we did! We got out of there in about 20 minutes instead of 2 hours! Yeah!!!

I need to get to bed as I have to much to do today. Hopefully I can get a few hours and stay up all day! That would be nice for a change!

Tour De France!!!!!

I forgot all about this! I am sitting at my kitchen table reading the morning paper and got to the sports section that I never read but decided to look through it today and saw the stats for the Tour De France! I can't believe I forgot all about this! I am curious who is going to win this year since Lance Armstrong has retired. It looks like the overall standings after stage one is George Hincapie of the United States! Maybe one of Lance's old team mates will win! I will have to start watching OLN to get the updates of what is going on! I am just glad that my memory was jogged before it was over! I guess I will be reading the sports section this month. I have stayed up all night and need to get some sleep as I work tonight!

Quite the sleepy girl I am!

I woke up around 4am and was planning to go back to bed after I turned all the lights out. I didn't get myself back to bed till about 10am and forget to reset my alarm so I didn't wake up till a little after 4pm!!!!! I was so tired I didn't get up and finally got up about 7pm! I have basically slept my day away . . . . . I was going to go to the mall to find me a new faceplate for my phone. I can still make it to the Mudhouse as they don't close till 11pm! Maybe I can stay up a little later tonight and get my house a little organized and go to bed about 3am and get up at 3pm and get ready for work. Ohhhhh . . . . I need to figure out everyone's total for the Mary Kay orders! Yikes! I have slept all weekend and not gotten anything done! I had better finish getting ready and hope that I am productive tonight! :-)

New Phone!!!!

After I got off from work on Thursday morning, I had a few errands to run. I happened to drive by the main Cingular store about the time they were opening so I decided to try in the store again to plead my case. I pleaded my case to yet another person. It was a shorter version as I was getting tired of telling my story! But he asked to see my phone and went and took it somewhere. He came back and told me that they would trade it out as a 30 day return! Yeah! I didn't even have to argue about anything - it was too easy! He said that I would have to bring the box and what came with the phone and they would credit what I paid on that phone towards the new phone. I went home and got everything and went back and got my new Sony Ericvsson W600i Walkman phone! It also is an organizer which I really like. I have uploaded "The Very Best of Macy Gray" on my phone! I am happy with my trade and this will keep me busy till I can upgrade in 2008! :-) My next thing to do is to find a pink faceplate for this phone!

I was really hoping to go see a movie last night When I woke up I felt like going back to bed! I didn't think sitting through a movie was going to be a good thing since I was wanting to sleep! I went out for ice cream and came back home and ended up falling asleep till about 0400 this morning. I meant to go back to bed but it hasn't happened.

Sunday is "Pancake day" and "Mudhouse day"!!! I consider Sunday pancake day because when I was growing up my dad would always cook pancakes on Sunday. I don't make pancakes every Sunday but I do alot of them! Saturday was egg day which I hated and still am not very fond of eggs. I will dabble in egg beaters as they are healthier! I like going to the Mudhouse on Sundays as they give double punches on your drink card! Two fun events for a fun and lazy day!

I need to work on my study guide for my Intro to music class. I also should start deciding what I am going to write my paper on and finish up my concert and fine arts reports! I only have about 4 weeks till all this is due! This class is going fast!
