My Computer Lives!

on February 5, 2010 - 12:28pm

Dear FOJG,

I haven't been able to use my laptop since the 25th and today I the new AC Adapter cord I needed arrived in the mail! Naturally, I plugged it right in and here I am :)

In other news, my car is running much better. The problem was with the starter. My dad replaced it for me and I saved money on repairs. I just wish I knew how to fix cars then I wouldn't need to bother him. My car hasn't been running very well since August or September. I don't think it drives as smoothly as it used to. Even though this most recent problem has been repaired I still feel like there's something with the breaks and because I don't have to drive long distances I get a lot of build up on the fuel injectors so I've been adding a cleaner every time I fill it up.

Got my hair cut a couple of weeks ago. It's really short. I like short hair because it's so much easier to take care of and there are so many cute short hairstyles. Long hair on me makes me look homeless.

Rainy Saturday

on January 30, 2010 - 11:12am

Dear Readers,

In actuallity it isn't raining very much, but the sky is gray. I have to work today at 3pm. Right now I'm at my parents' house because living where I work it's distracting with kids in the house.

I don't usually drink coffe, but last night I drank a cup because I was feeling tired and after that I drank another, and then this morning I've been drinking it. I think I may have opened up a can of worms, ha ha.

I have a second room now at the house which allows me to have both a bedroom and a seperate office. So far my office has become a catch-all for everything that doesn't fit in with my room and all of the papers and bils and things that I keep meaning to sit down and actually organize. This morning I woke up really early, threw all of the piles of papers into a bin and am now spending the morning trying to organize everything. I like being organized, I like the feeling of peace that I have when I know where everything is and I can get to it easily. It's the getting things to that point that are difficult, but I have to make myself do this now or life will continue feeling overhwlming and chaotic.

I Miss The Old Layout

on January 7, 2010 - 6:37pm

Maybe I've already said this, but one feature I liked on the old FOJG site how you could see who had posted the last was it 15 or 16 journals. You had faster access to the fan journals, and as a result it was easier to keep in touch with everyone. Now we have to click on the Fan Journals section. Okay, forget I said that. Now I sound so lazy!

Currently, I'm watctching an infomercial for the "Perfect Brownie Pan" and I'm wishing I had some brownies right about now. I had the day off, and I haven't been getting enough sleep. So, this morning I finished working and then I had to pack up because I'm house-sitting this week. When I arrived at the house I took a 4 hour nap and when I woke up my eye was in a lot of pain, and it was constantly tearing up. It's better now, but I have a long day tomorrow and I just hope it feels better by morning.

My day off has been relaxing for the most part, but I still wish I had another day off tomorrow. There's never enough time is there.

Kacie Mulhurn, you're my hero

on January 3, 2010 - 2:52pm

Randomly titled journal. Kacie, if you're reading this I don't know that you're really my hero, but I have been wondering about you throughout the day, so you get a shout out in this entry. For those of you who care, Kacie and I were in high school choir together.

So, the holidays have come and gone and I could have done without the presents. In recieving so many nice gifts I once again realized there's nothing material that I need. I feel a little guilty for having so much. I hadn't planned on it, but waking up on the 1st I had this urge to de-clutter. So far I've taken 4 bags of clothes to the Goodwill, and I'm in the process of cleaning out my office. I'm so sick of stuff. Especially stuff that I don't use. So my resolution is that I will either start using the things I have or it goes bye bye.

My usual resolutions remain from last year: lose weight, get organized. One more I should add: stop feeling old. You're NOT old!

The Cats will protect me, right?

on December 7, 2009 - 9:32pm

I'm house-sitting again! I was looking forward to being here. It's like a mini vacation to get away from my house for a while. This time I'll only be here 5 days, and then I'm going to Spoakane to see my brother. I'd like to be asleep right now, and I should be. This morning they called to tell me they were leaving and that one of the cats had brought a small rat, a live rat, into the house last night and they were unable to catch it. So, how am I supposed to sleep with the possibility of a live rat in the house?! Stupid cat doors!
