Changes & New has been FOREVER since I've sparked my fingers to the keyboard for a blog post. Thanks to a dear friend for reminding me that I even have a long lost blog awaiting my every command. :P Here goes...another attempt at becoming a regular poster again.

To catch many changes...

1. I'm Engaged! Yes, it happened! It was the Magic Kingdom at that and we are planning a wedding soon as we can figure that out. He still makes the butterflies flutter...after all this time. :)

2. I've lost 70lbs. Melted it off with hard work and determination. I have some more work to do but maintaining what I've done so far is happiness on the scale.

3. I moved! I have my own little casa of my very own and am living peacefully with my editor-in-chief El Bandito. Lonely at times, but nice to have my own kitchen to make a mess in.

4. I'm a Vegetarian! Yup...a hippie chick through-and-through and now internally too!

5. Work is Nuts! What's new there? Well, we don't know who 2 of our senators are yet, the House as a 30/30 split, the Senate Majority leader resigned his leadership position, my boss is retiring Dec 31 with no replacement in near sight and my favorite coworker has gone to bigger and better things. This session looks to be quite interesting.

6. The Celibacy Clock is STILL proudly ticking away! *giggle* Not for too much longer...with a wedding looming in the near future.

7. I have made the most important decision in my entire life thus far and I can't declare it to the world yet. Keeping secrets KILLS me! Soon...I'll let it all out.

8. I've been watching as both of my grandmothers' fight for health. Getting old is a little too real these days.

9. My Dad experienced what we are calling a "wake-up call" by suffering a TIA (mini-stroke) and is making amazing life changes - quitting smoking, diet, exercise and stress management. I'm so proud of him for taking it seriously and even more proud of my Mom for being his rock when I know it is hard for her.

10. I'm happy. I think, even with all these crazy things, that I am the most happy I've ever been in my entire life. Things are finally going in a direction I can be elated about! I randomly burst into song and dance just thinking about my happiness. I'm know, I'm still an incredible dork.

Brief I know, but that's a quick catch-up on the life of Me! :) I'll be here more and more since big things are about to unfold in my life. Excitement abound!

Here's to a new chapter...

New Technology

I downloaded the Blogger app to my iPhone in the hopes that I will find the inspiration to post more. Here's hoping...

I Promise I'll Write...

I haven't written in a long, long time. I'm so sorry. :(

Tomorrow there will be a post of substance. Tomorrow there will be letters.

I have the perfect boyfriend, perfect relationship, perfect family, perfect friends - but everyone I love is so far away from me. I feel so very imperfect. I'm alone.

I'm losing it.

All my friends are either getting married or welcoming little ones.

Instead of happy, I'm sad. I wish it was me.

I'm almost 30 and going nowhere fast.

One month left until I see him again. This time I don't want to go home. Every time I have to say goodbye to him it is harder and harder to recover. I walk around for months afterwards like some sick drug addict who can't find a score. Depressed. Lonely. Wishing.

Things I Need...

1. Him

...just him. :(

Really Now?

I know I haven't posted anything of substance recently, and this certainly doesn't account for such either, but I need to vent a few things to anyone who has an open minute to read them.

There is a hurricane brewing within my family and soon the full on storm will hit. Each day the winds get stronger and stronger and I don't know if this makeshift shelter I've built for myself will withstand it. I don't make a habit of wishing angry things on people, but for this person, I wish to them exactly what they deserve.

Let me issue a full on consumer warning to everyone: Do not do business with Dish Network. They are still trying to bill me for an account that I didn't sign up for service to a house that has been sitting vacant for over 3 years. Yay, more attorney fees. /sigh

Yay for Friday. Bleh for Friday. I get to "celebrate" a coworker's birthday that totally blew mine off last year. While I don't expect a present, just for her to attend the little lunch we hold, she unexpectantly "forgot to turn off her curling iron" and had to run home during mine. Then she preceeded to question me about what my boyfriend bought me for my birthday when she clearly knows he doesn't do the birthday-thing. I think I'll work really hard at being sick on Friday.

I don't even want to talk about the economy...other than that the fools running this garbage now won't live long enough to feel the brunt of destruction that they have placed in my already burning hands.

Another gem for today...I'm wearing two different socks I've discovered. Yes, both are black, but indeed different.

Can this month get any worse? /tear

My New Love Affair

Can I be any more in love with technology?


Thursday, March 12, 2009


I’ll be the first to admit that I’ve been lazy about writing anything in this blog. I’m also slightly convinced that even if I did that no one would read it. Being negative has been a trend of late.

My hour morning commute to work is getting worse every month. I don’t understand with the unemployment rate being so high, how they are honestly more people on the roads. Since just January I’ve passed by 3 fatal accidents, witnessed 1 minor accident, was almost involved in an accident 4 times and have experienced countless moments of fear from other people driving recklessly or burning tires of road rage. One would think that a simple straight stretch of road would be so easy to drive. Apparently not.

After a trip to the “eyeball doctor” this week I found out that my consistent headaches, itchy eyes and minor blurs in vision are not allergy-related. I’m suffering from a case of severe eye strain due to my continual daily use of the computer. My eyes are so used to living in the nearsighted world that my far sight vision has been grossly affected. A minor prescription for glasses was recommended. :P

Session is going as usual, well, as usual as one can expect considering the state of Oregon’s economic status. When you don’t have money, how can you spend it? Apparently the triple-majority is still finding ways to do so as they are continuing to spend my tax dollars on ridiculous things such as a bill to make “throwing feces, urine or semen at another human” illegal. Do we really need to specify that in a law? I personally, see that as a form of assault without having to define it. Another bill would lift the “pet to work” ban from the recently remodeled Capitol building sponsored in-part by a Senator who is pissed that she can’t bring her hairy dog to work with her anymore. What kind of people do we have in Oregon? Really.

My only glimmer of happiness is that I’ll finally be able to escape to Arizona in July and see my precious boyfriend. He keeps my feet on the ground and my easily annoyed mind at ease. I’m so thankful for him.
