Something New...

Okay, I know. I suck. I haven't posted in FOREVER...and for that I am sorry.

I am also, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, VERY sorry to do this to you people again, BUT....

I am switching my blog, yet again. What can I say? I'm a creature of change. Apparently I get bored extraordinarly easily.

My new address:

Go there.

Do it.

You know you want to.

26. CDs from friends who know my taste in music so well that I could tell them to go buy me a CD that I enjoy or I will kill them, and they'll do it without any problem. It rocks.

27. Friends who get me wind-up chickens who lay bubble gum eggs.

28. People who don't think my THUMBS ARE FAT.

This is all.

25 List

Okay, since I haven't posted my "list" for what, like, five days now?...I figure I have a lot of catching up to do. So, here is my list of 25 things I am thankful for.

1. Birthdays.
2. Cards from friends with pictures of me on the toilet. No, not a "real" me, a "fake" me. If my friends had pictures of me on the toilet, that would take our friendships to a whole new level of weird...and they're weird enough.
3. New Bibles with THUMB INDEXES. I've wanted a Thumb Index Bible since I was like...five. I don't really need a thumb index...but they're just so cool. They make me feel special.
4. People like Sean and Loni who point out when I've failed miserably at my attempts at being thankful. Seriously. I was wondering if anyone would notice that.
5. Boys who take me on birthday weekends to Duluth and buy me things like Air Purifiers and Jewelry.
6. People like Sharon who want me to post again
7. Moms. Because they go out of their way to make life easier, happier and gooder. And besides, they just rock. That's what they're there for.
8. Coworkers who buy me lunch for my birthday. Even though I think it's part of a conspiracy to make me fat.
9. Snow. Yeah, I know, I don't like snow either...but the more snow we get now, the less chance we have of having forest fires this summer and burning down the entire town.
10. Pop...and coffee.
11. New running shoes that I swear I will start using once the snow melts. I have to burn off the pop and coffee somehow.
12. Flowers sent to my work place from afore mentioned boy.
13. Springtime...despite it's absolute opposition to showing it's shining face anytime soon.
14. Customers that willingly offer compliments.
15. Reaching the age of 24...I mean, 19...without having done irreversible damage to my life, my future, or my health due to irresponsible decisions.
16. Easter.
17. Awesome siblings who never forget my birthday and always send something special for it.
18. A brother-in-law who likes me enough to leave creepy phone messages as "Phil" telling me how much he misses me and our walks in the park. I know, it's weird, but it made me laugh.
19. Boat Neck Tees.
20. People that make me laugh. And not laugh as in, "I feel sorry for you," but laugh as in, "Whoa, hey, ho, that was funny!"
21. Chicken strips with barbecue sauce.
22. Ice cream cake.
23. Weird people. Because they make life more interesting.
24. Sunshine.
25. Packaging tape and permanent markers. Don't ask. Just accept it and move on.

That's all I have for now. Now you'll have to excuse me before I begin to gush.

And another five

Things for which I am thankful...

1. The fact that my boss didn't call into work today so I didn't have to waste 30 minutes on the phone listening to him tell me to do things I already did three weeks ago and have him think out loud over the phone to me saying things like, "Uh...yeah, don't remember what I was going to say." REALLY?

2. Special K Breakfast Bars. Those things are CRAAAAAZY tasty. As in, Fried Chicken crazy tasty. But they don't taste like fried chicken. They tast completely different. Just really good.

3. My coworkers who make my job and life a little less boring and a little more tolerable.

4. People that don't drive stupidly. Like not trying to figure out if they can turn right on a green light. Those people that don't waste my time being stupid kinda rock.

5. People that speak well. Then I don't have to obsessively correct their grammar. And their stupidity. "That flashlight is broke. I had came to pick you up. I had went to find you." I would like to thank all the people out there who do not speak like this.

This is all for today. Pretty sure it's only day three and I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel.

5 more things

1. Naps. Being THIS tired all day, I definitely deserve the second best thing God ever invented. I bet you're wondering what the best thing is, huh? Napping, idiots.

2. Loralee. 'Cause she makes me laugh my guts out and if I lived in Logan, I'd arrange it so I could live next door to her so I could bother her night and day.

3. Rain. Especially on tired days where you want to take naps.

4. "Criminal Minds". No, not actual criminal minds. That's just sick. I mean the show. 'Cause it's the best show ever and it's on tonight.

5. My new resolution to start running this spring and summer, because after getting small amounts of exercise I've found it really helps physically and mentally. And I think I might actually stick to it this year.

And no, Loralee...Mitt Romney will never make it into any of my Top Five sick little sadist.

New Leaf

After the past few weeks of feeling emotionally, mentally and spiritually drained, and after one too many afternoons of lamenting the situations that make up my life... I have made a decision to turn over a new leaf.

As I was sitting in this little coffin of a room, tap-tap-tapping away on my computer, obsessing over things that I can neither control nor fix, lamenting the sad, sad situation which is my job search, wondering if I will be left to rot in this hellish little town with six cats and the charming little title of "Old Aunt Sue" or "Crazy Cat Lady"... it occurred to me.

I complain and whine and get frustrated and feel sorry for myself and obsess and worry and try to please other people WAY TOO MUCH. I mean...seriously...get over myself...who do I think I am?'s the new plan...each day I have to list five things which I am thankful for or tell five good things about my day. I'm going to practice being positive. And I'm hoping...having a thankful heart will help me to see things rightly and I will be able to pull myself out of this rut I currently find myself in.

Here goes.

1. Today, it is BEAUTIFULLY sunny and warm and just plain gorgeous. It is awesome.

2. Today, I received six job offers. Okay, I didn't, but a little positive confession never killed anyone. But I AM thankful that I currently HAVE a job where I can pay all of my bills.

3. I have awesome friends, family, boy and coworkers. Awesome. Oh...and awesome blog buddies too. And they never, ever irritate me or make me want to smack them or shove their faces in. (Another positive confession there in case you couldn't tell.)

4. I am not sick. Not anywhere. No aches, no pains, no 24 hour flu bug, no sniffles, nothing. Go Vitamin C.

5. I have a birthday coming up. It's a birthday. I'm supposed to celebrate it. So, I'm going to.

Know what's funny? That was actually a little bit painful. It's so much easier to whine, complain and moan. But no. I'm going to work on that. Seriously. I'm going to be so positive, I'm going to be like your own personal Pollyanna. It's going to irritate the crud out of you people.

Oh. My. Goodness.

I love Blogger.

God bless Blogger.

People at Blogger are the best people in the world.


They're even better than Mormons.


Because they...


Oh my gosh...seriously, I could kiss their feet.

I am a happy, happy girl once again.

You people rock.

Now...if I could just figure out how to access it...did I have an old password? How does this work?

Either way...I have it back. Now I just have to figure out what I'm going to do with it...
