“Anybody can be a Beer Bottle Junkie!”

I’ll explain in a minute.

Today is Sunday. Well, I lie. Wait, no I don’t… it’s still Sunday. My clock in front of me, not on the computer, says twelve oh five but I looked on the computer and it says eleven oh seven. So I’m going with the computer clock. I think that’s wise. So, it’s Sunday. Went to church. Had to wake up way too early. Oh, do I hate mornings. Maybe I should start with last night and why we had to wake up early….. not early, just not enough sleep.

Ok, we went to a concert last night in Altamonte Springs. Rick, and technically me, have a friend in a metal rock band. There called Beer Bottle Junkies. (That’s where the quote is from.) They happened to be playing in some bar in Altamonte Springs. Timmy Macks Irish Bar. Something like that. Let me tell you first off that you should stay far away from this bar!!! I can’t say that I’ve been in quite a few bars but this has to be the worst!! They didn’t even get on stage till eleven. Close to it at least. They played for an hour. Maybe they got on at eleven thirty. Maybe so. Can’t remember right now. Sleep deprived. So, I am quite sleepy because we didn’t get out of there till one something in the morning. We did not get home till two and then the dogs had to be let out. And fed. So while I fed the dogs Rick was supposed to take the dogs out. Way long story short, I took the dogs out and fed them. Well our girl dog, Tippy, is in heat. Yes, the excitement. Well it’s driving us all, Dewey included, bonkers!! Well, when I let Dewey out, we leave him out at night and he was walking around and I went to bed. Rick was walking through the living room and I hear him yell at Dewey and send him to his cage. Turns out Dewey was marking his territory! So, needless to say that Dewey has been in his cage a lot recently. Long story, long: We didn’t get to “bed” till after two thirty! And we had to leave the house at seven am!!

At church I stayed awake and that was awesome. Praise the Lord!! Mom and dad came to church for second service and then we went out to lunch. Went to Chili’s. Loved it. Great service today. Last time we went there we waited, literally, an hour just to get a drink. Craziness! I got these awesome chicken fingers with gravy. How can you go wrong with chicken and gravy?? I love it! Afterwards we, and when I say we I mean me, drove home. Got home and went to bed. We only slept three hours before we woke up. Funny little side story…..sometimes it’s not funny!! But in the mornings sometimes Rick will wake up first and he’ll roll over and wake me up. I’ll finally get up and then he’ll roll over and try to go back to sleep. Felt the need to share!

I was thinking about Valentine’s day because I helped Yazmine go through her Valentine cards. You know how in school you exchange Valentine’s Day cards? Well, I was reading who they were from and what good candy they gave her. Had to test some in case it was poisoned; just kidding. Anywho, I was thinking about when I was a wee munchkin and getting all those cards. I actually wasn’t wee. I was in fourth grade. Mrs Meadows. The year I had a “talking problem.” It was Valentine’s Day and I had Barbie Valentines. Don’t laugh. Barbie was hot! Not hot, like I love me some Barbie. She was hot, like way way way cool!! That’s right. I played with Barbies. I’m not ashamed to admit it. So I had these Barbie Valentines and I remember that I didn’t really look at the cards as I was putting names on them and this one boy, who I might add was like my best friend in second grade, made fun of me because of the cards. I gave him one that said something to extent of will you be my Ken. Something like that. I remember him laughing at me and getting everyone to make fun of me because of them. Man, that started off really awesome; such a great memory and that just ended like bam! That sucked. I didn’t realize how sad I feel about that. Isn’t that ridiculous. Go Barbie! And that’s all I have to say about that!! I love you ALL

“Get R done.”

I watched Delta Farce last night and Larry the Cable Guy was in it and he said this a few times. Ulrik had to go do the Elks thing last night so I was home last night all by myself. I had to find something to watch and that movie popped out in the shelf and shouted at me: “Watch me!” So I obeyed like a mindless drone that I am. I put it in. Kinda funny. Well, it had some funny parts in it. There was some stupid parts too. I think I want to watch that new movie with Larry in it too. It sounds stupid but I thought Health Inspector was funny. Anywho…….

I didn’t have to go to work on Monday and Tuesday because Judy and Yazmine were sick. So I got a little vacation! It didn’t end up being a vacation becuase me and Rick ended up working in the house both days. I was scanning old documents and getting things on the computer straightened out. Sort of. It was fun just being at home with him. I really enjoyed it. I think he did too. He’d better. But I’m at work today becuase Bobby needed help! He texted me this morning and was like please come help me!! So I am here. And Judy’s in her room sleeping and Yazmine’s in her room sleeping. So, I’m sure she’s going to wake up soon and then I’ll have to get off the computer. I am ready for a nap now too because I have worked my butt off like I was here on Monday and Tuesday.

I love you ALL

“Come my lady. Come, come my lady. Your my butterfly. Sugar. Baby.”

Not quite sure if those are the exact words to that song but they sound like it. This song rocked back in the nineties!! Oh yeah. I don’t even know who sings it. Or sang it. Whatever. I do remember that he reminded me of Mark McGrath but I knew it wasn’t him. He was weird looking. The guy who sang this, not Mark McGrath. Anywho…..me and Rick watched Orange County yesterday or the day before and this was a huge song in it. Stupid movie but great song. Thinking back it was an incredibly stupid movie. I don’t know why I wasted my time with it…….

Well, Valentines Day has come and gone. I had bought Rick three different cards and I hid them around the house in obvious places so he would definately find them. I hid one by his toothbrush. One by his vitamins and one in his study book he’s been reading. He found one of them and called me on my way to work saying he loved me and all that mushy stuff. I got off at five instead of five thirty so I got home a little bit earlier. I put my purse down on the kitchen table and he had the cards on there. I was like, oh you found them all. We were talking, I walked into the kitchen and got something to drink. Talked a little bit more and he said he was going to go back on the computer for a little bit. So he walked down and I’m walking about five steps behind him. Then I see on the table is a vase with roses in it and a card. I asked him if he was going to let me just walk around and not even read my card!!! I’m sooo blonde. I can’t believe I didn’t even see it. It was right by where I set my purse!! Funny. So it was a nice night. Ordered some pizza and watched some movies. Great time.

Didn’t have to work today. Presidents Day and all. Just kidding. I didn’t get off because of Presidents Day. Just a quick side note: Does anyone know which Presidents birthdays we celebrate? Or technically which one? Anywho……..I love you ALL

“The touch. The feel. Of Cotton.”

Does anybody else find these commercials hilarious? It’s February, right? So everyone knows that it’s Black History Month. Right? (And if you didn’t know, then you must not be around any tv or radios because they seem to think the world has forgotten what month it is. Why can’t February just be known for Valentine’s Day? That’s it. Anywhoo…..) I was watching tv the other day. Possibly yesterday and this add for cotton comes up. And it’s going on about everything great about cotton. As it’s going over the great qualities of cotton the background is a cotton field. Get it? Black history month. Cotton fields. Now do you get it? If you don’t, comment and I’ll explain. I laughed my butt off and I told Bobby and Judy about it (both of them black) and they laughed too. Funny stuff. What will they think of next?

So tomorrow is the “big day.” Big day being Valentine’s Day. Exciting and nerve wracking at the same time. I don’t know what to do……and I don’t know if Ulrik has something planned or not. It’s not like he has to have something planned but I’ve never really had a Valentine. (Romantically.) So does it make sense for me to expect something? Right now I’m trying to tune my brain into thinking of nothing. Expecting nothing; so that way if nothing does happen (or whatever) I won’t be dissapointed. (It’s sad that I might be dissapointed anyway. I can’t get this mindset out of my head.) And if something does happen then I’ll be extra happy and excited because I wasn’t expecting that. Am I making any sense at all? I keep trying to pry information out of Ulrik but I can’t tell if he’s lieing to me or he’s actually telling me the truth when he says he doesn’t know what were doing. I just have to remember that happiness is a choice and tomorrow I am going to choose to be happy no matter what because I am with the love of my life and I get to be with him forever! And I don’t need chocolates………..

Talking about chocolates, I saw this V-day (is that appropiate to say?) card at Target that had this man and woman on the front of it. They were talking and the lady was saying “You know, size really does matter.” And the guys face is kinda shocked. On the inside of the card the lady’s holding a huge box of chocolates and it says something about how the bigger the box of chocolates the better. I thought it was funny. I didn’t get it, I got this really good one though. Can’t put it on here because Ulrik might read this before tomorrow!

I may be getting ready for a job change. It’s a little earlier than I expected to but just pray for me. I don’t know if you should pray that I get it or that I don’t get it. Just pray. Because I need it. Anywho….I love you ALL and if you don’t have a Valentine for tomorrow I would love to be yours!!!

This always happens to me. I get to Xanga, I click new weblog and then all of a sudden I forget my quote that I was going to use. Everytime. Does this happen to anybody else? Does anybody else still write on Xanga? Does anybody still read this? Anywho……I shall overcome. I will think of a new quote.

“I’m forever your girl.”

Paula Abdul. Ulrik had this video and many others from the eighties and we were watching them last night. It was funny watching them. Some of the people I had no idea who they were or the songs. Rick of course knew them all. The best one was the Paula Abdul one. No, I take that back. It was Tone Loc’s Funky Comidina. I love that song. I have it memorized and now it’s going to be stuck in my head all day. It’s a good song to have stuck in your head. Catchy.

This morning me and Ulrik were eating our cereal outside on the back porch with the screen door slightly ajar. Were eating away when all of a sudden Dewey tries to come in the back porch with a stick about four feet long! It was soooo funny because he’s holding the stick and he keeps backing up and trying again. Staight on. So the stick is longways and obviously he can’t get in. He backed up and tried I don’t know how many times. Finally it fell out of his mouth and part of it came in the door so he picked it up and was able to finagle it in the door. Then we had to yell at him to take it back outside. It was funny. His look was “I just got this inside and now you want me to take it back out the door? Your crazy!” I had to get up and pick it up and throw it outside. I thought he was going to take me down!!

Today is the really long day. Every week, after work, I go to choir practice and then right afterwards is band practice. So that’s not over till nine pm. And then it takes me almost an hour to get home. But most of the time me and Sara have “girl time” and I go over to her house and talk for awhile. It’s really fun. I don’t have any friends close by and it sucks big time that everyone lives so far away. But, anywho…..no use thinking about it. I love my life. I’m blessed.

Anywho….moving on. Anyone know anybody in the market for a new car????? Were trying to get rid of the Bug and any help we can get the better. Please email me if you know someone. Please. I love you ALL

“IIIIIIIIIIII want to rock and roll all day.
And party every night!”

As I’m reading that it doesn’t sound right. Does it to anybody else? It seems like I wrote it down wrong. Well, I don’t know. If someone cares enough to check tell me if it’s right or wrong. Right now, it’s not bothering me.

Ulrik is talking to me right now. And I’m typing. Is that wrong? He’s telling me about Britain and water and something about cancer. And the drugs in the water. Should I be listening? Seriously not caring about Britain and their water. I want to work…..which is strange, right? But can’t do that yet. Well, I had to pause because he looked at me….. I had to pay attention. Hee hee. I know he’s going to read this, and I love you honey.

Candy is coming over today and were going to Buffalos. It’s this awesome restaurant over here. Right across the street. They have some great food. Now, I can’t really say that. I’ve only been like five times and I’ve gotten the same thing every time. It is the best though. It’s called a burrito wrap. AWESOME!! It comes with these chips that are just perfect and the wrap itself is soooo amazing. I can’t wait to go now. She just pulled up. I gotta go……
I love you ALL
