Today was beautiful. I went into the office for a while, took off my pants, went grocery shopping, blasted "I miss you" by Blink 182 with the woofers on in the car (because I am a REALLY cool white girl,) went back to the office, and all around had a pretty amazing day. The only bad part is that I got a sun burn on one side of my body from sitting in traffic on Whittaker Road.

When we got home, Holly and I rearranged her room, she's still up there putting things back where they belong, and I am once again, burning chicken on the George Foreman. I don't get it, I'm sort of a good cook (despite what Grammy says) but I just can not perfect the art or George Foreman grilling. It makes me crazy.

Someday, I will get it.

Anyway, dinner is now done and I have a lot more cleaning to do, plus I think I'll rearrange my own room.

See ya tomorrow,

Stupid People Genocide


Today has been chaos. When I woke up I felt like a complete zombie. I was probably sleep walking until about 10am, and I got up at 7am.

The office was freaking INSANE. When Holly and I walked in there was a tiny path that we could get through into the kitchen area if we turned on our sides. The whole place was getting new carpet and all the furniture from the side offices was sitting in the main entry. What I don't get is that the place was still open for business. People were still coming in trying to rent apartments. That's when Boss Lady and I decided that if we were to put a Stupid People Genocide into effect, nearly 97% of the residents would be in concentration camps. It's mean, but it's true.

Now I am finally home, and exhausted. I'm not feeling particularly hungry but I suppose I need to get the girls some food in their tummies, and figure out what's going on around here for the rest of the day. Hopefully, the day doesn't last much longer. I just need to sleep.

I suppose that's it for now, I'll be back tomorrow, and probably more happy because it's FRIDAY! WOOOOO!

Here's My Story


I fucking suck, I suck so much.

Yesterday Katelynn invited me to go see Hundredth, World We Knew and A Textbook Tragedy, and Continuance. I was very excited about this, because it had been a long time since I've seen a concert, or left Ypsi for that matter.

So I found out I was going to go at like, 1:30ish. I jumped in the shower, got ready, and waited. I was done by 5pm, I didn't leave my house until 6:30pm. I had PLENTY of time to blog, and I was just so damn excited, that I forgot. I feel really weird about it too.

So we ended up getting to the show a little late, but it was still worth it because we at least got to see A Textbook Tragedy, Hundredth, and part of World We Knew AND I'm pretty sure that everyone I've ever known in my whole life was there. I got punched in the head so many times, and I loved it. They're playing again tonight at The Modern Exchange and I REALLY want to go.

So anyway, when the show was over us girls headed to Meijer, and I bought alcohol for the first time in my adult life. Then we headed over to Mike's house and SURPRISE, A Textbook Tragedy, and Continuance was there, along with everyone else that I've ever known in my entire life.

So we mingled with bands, and friends of high schools past, I watched many games of failed flip cup, and drank a lot of things I usually wouldn't. It-was-a-blast. I also learned how to throw a punch the right way without breaking my knuckles. I don't know why they were teaching me this, since I clearly have never hit anyone, nor do I plan to hit anyone. But, I guess it's good to know.

At about 4am I started talking about how I have to be at home by 7am to get Autumn on the bus and go into the office. That's about the time we agreed we should probably go get some sleep. Originally we were on our way to Hilary's house to go to sleep, and she was driving because she hadn't been drinking, but half way there we decided it would be better for everyone if I just went home then. That way we could all sleep a little longer in the morning.

When we were about 25 minutes from my house, at 4:15 in the morning, I realized that I had failed. I didn't blog. So then I was just in the back seat yelling "NOOOOOOO!" and when I told Katelynn my issue, I think she was just as disappointed as I was. So when I got home, because my fingers were not working properly from the alcohol intake, I penned the few lines that I could, that you now see below this post.

But here's my catch, I DID write, and I DID write before I went to sleep. So for me, it was still technically the same day. That's my cop out and I'm sticking to it.

Today, I DID wake up at 7:37am to get Autumn on the bus, but then I didn't even bother going into the office, and I just went back to sleep because I felt like Hell frozen over. I finally just got up at about 1:30pm and I guess now I'm going to try and get my day started. I have a few things I need to do and the girls are going to be home soon, so I should get to them, and get rid of this awful hang over. Hopefully tonight I can make it to The Modern Exchange and see the bands play again and get hit in the head some more, we'll see though.

Until tomorrow,


I failed.

I'll explain why once I sleep.

It's not a good enough excuse.

I Won't Forget to Put Roses on Your Grave


Today has been, once again, uneventful. I can't even think of anything even mildly interesting that's been happening in the world that I would even want to talk about. Um, Brett Michael's head is hemorrhaging, so I guess we should probably send good thoughts and prayers to him in hopes that he pulls through it all with lo lasting effects. I'm definitely not a fan, but he seems like an all right guy, and no one deserves to get injured and stay injured.

Other than wishing Mr. Michael's well, I chatted to my brother today. He called because I messaged him telling him about a dream I had. We got to talking about the Memorial Day Party and tubing on the Rifle River again, which I hate talking about because it makes me way too excited and anxious. Once I hung up the phone with him, I went to check the mail and found dead flowers in the mailbox. There was no note, so I don't know who was the culprit, but I do hope they sent them in hopes if reminding me of The Rolling Stones. If not, then they totally suck.

For now, I'm going to go and see what everyone else has going on in the house and try to wind down the day.

I'll be back tomorrow, of course.

Sunday, April 25, 2010


Let's see here, I have spend 45 of the last 48 hours ALONE.

I am absolutely developing Cabin Fever. I've done the weirdest shit this weekend, I randomly called someone and cussed at them, I locked my dog outside in the rain, I've slammed cabinets, I slept for 14 hours straight, I've drank two pots of coffee, killed off my Sim of Prince Harry and made a Sim of John Green, who actually is an awesome writer, (though he is way more rich than John Green,) and I started chatting to people I'm not even friends with on Facebook.

I am losing my fucking mind. See, I'm cussing like a sailor. I don't cuss like that, it makes you looks stupid. I'm sure I look stupid, but honestly it doesn't even matter.

I am going to sit here and listen to Bright Eyes and blow up people's Formspring pages until someone finally comes home to save me from myself. That seems pretty normal, Bright Eyes, Formspring. I can do this.


So yeah, should anyone want to come visit and make sure I haven't started pulling my hair out or something, that would be acceptable.

If not, I'll be back tomorrow just like the sun.

Wow, I'm such a lame ass. "Just like the sun?"


Saturday, April 24, 2010


I'm just going to get this over with while I'm waiting for my day to move in a different direction.

I've literally spend the last 24 hours with no human contact and minimal interaction. As you might imagine, I was about ready to pull my hair out. Luckily people started showing up, and I have my sister here and the neighborhood boy outside mowing the grass.

Tonight could go in a variety of different ways, I know I am personally rooting for one particular outcome, but it probably won't happen, because the cookie just crumbles that way.

As for now I'm just waiting for neighborhood boy Matt to be done mowing the grass so I can thank him, pay him and send him on his way. Then I'm going to get in the shower and see which way the night turns out.

Hopefully I have some fun things to spill tomorrow, don't get your hopes up though.

Less Than Four

Right this second is the first time I've thought about blogging all day. It's just been one of those days where it kind of just slipped my mind.

It could be because I've been working really hard on something this past week and just now in a matter of 15 minutes, I completely blew it. I'm so disappointed in myself, but I know I can get it all fixed tomorrow. It just sucks when I fail at something. I feel really shitty about it. I know that I don't need to sit around and beat myself up, but I'm kind of mad. To the point where if I had someone to join me, I'd totally drink a glass of wine and lay on the trampoline and wallow in self pity.

Hahaha - it's whatever. I'm not going to think about it any more today. For now, I'll be happy.

On a different, more serious note:

Tonight, I'm hoping to be able to catch up with an old friend that I've been meaning to tell some things to. He is more important to me than I think he ever realized. So in case I never find the right words at the right time, I want to dedicate this blog to him.

P -

Every major event in my life since I was like, 17 - you've been there for me. Everything anyone could think of, we've shared with each other. You've always been there for me unconditionally, in a way no one else probably could have. When my dad died you knew the things to NOT say, and would sit there and listen to me in my drunken grief, blabbing about delayed grieving and God. You were there when I lost my virginity (not psychically, but you know.) You talked me through the weird emotions and eventually told me to suck it up, because shit happens. You've been with me through births, birthdays, weird obsessions with The Jonas Brothers, and even got Maureen Johnson to tell me Happy Birthday (it wasn't John Green, but close enough.) One year you were even my Valentine, because I was a cold, lonely girl.

I wish everyone could have a friend like that, but unfortunately there is only one of you, and I doubt you could befriend the world.

S.A.R.P - You know who you are, and you know you will always hold the most special place in my heart. We can go days, weeks and on occasions even months with out talking, and I can pick it right back up with you. Nothing every changes between us, not from the beginning, and not at the end. I'm always going to need you, no matter how much I grow up.

Thank you for just being -- less than four.

Earth Day!

Happy Earth Day!!

I hope you all tried to decrease your carbon footprint and planted lots of flowers, plants and trees. I especially hope you did lots of those things to make up for what I didn't do. Generally every year on Earth Day I'll plant our flowers for the year, or find somewhere to put a tree, but this year I did neither of those things. The closest I got to it was planting a few trees on The Sims 3 and watching Green Day on Fuse all day. I failed the Earth this year, and I'm ashamed.

Other than my Sims playing, and Green Day watching, I didn't accomplish much today. Hannah was home from school so we cleaned and did laundry, but I do that every day so I still feel pretty unaccomplished for the day.

The good news is that tomorrow is FRIDAY! Hopefully this weekend will be good, and we can have (virgin) margarita trampoline parties, or at least one party.

For the rest of the night, I'll probably just read Philip Pullman's "Northern Lights" or as you probably know it "The Golden Compass." I've read the whole "His Dark Materials" series before and LOVED them, so I decided it was about time to give it a reread. I've started to notice a lot of what people have been saying about "Harry Potter" author JK Rowling in my reread though. I've picked up on SEVERAL things in "His Dark Materials" that Rowling seems to have jocked. Don't get me wrong, I'm a huge Harry Potter fan, but it definitely has a lot of parts that are clearly unoriginal. Pullman's novels were published several years before Rowling even started working on the "Potter" books. I think it's safe to say that old girl ripped off his ideas.

As I go through the series again I'm going to make a list of things that JK Rowling clearly ripped straight from "His Dark Materials" and I'll post them so we can go through and agree or disagree.

I guess for now that's it, I'll see ya tomorrow.

Wednesday, April 21, 2010


Last night I had a dream that I was driving my dad around town, and his car kept malfunctioning, and he wasn't even yelling at me about the malfunctions or my driving.

I woke up realizing that I've started to miss the little things about him, even the things that irritated me, and not just him as a whole. I kind of would like to hear him yell about my "below par driving skills" and laugh until he's weezing at the same joke he had been telling for the last 15 years. There were many little silly things about him that I JUST MISS. I kind of think it's starting to make me crack up. I opened a drawer today to look for something to wear and saw one of his shirts and just started smelling it. Who smells clothes? I've gone through death so many times, I've lived it over and over but never anything like this. I thought I was being the strong one, holding it together for everyone, but now it just seems little by little, I'm losing it.

It's taken me a really long time to write this blog today. My editor has been sitting open practically all day and here it is, nearly 9pm and I just don't know what to say. I feel lost for words, for the first time in a long while.

It's a weird feeling.

For now I'm just going to try and lose myself in a book for a while before I slip into dream land, where hopefully I'll get a little relief.

Have a good day.

It's 4/20 - National Day for Stoners Everywhere. I know I shouldn't be aggravated about it considering I used to smoke and go to Hash Bash, the whole sha-bang. I just don't get it anymore though. I never really liked it so I don't see any fun in frying your brain, or watching other people fry theirs. I know that it effects people differently but it's still irritating to sit there and watch someone fry out and act like a zombie for the next three hours of life. There is so much more you could be doing with the day than toking up and acting like an idiot.

That's just my opinion though, if you want to smoke and waste your time and money, then there isn't anything I can stay to stop you. I just know how much time is wasted because of it. I had a lot of fun when I was a teenager, and I understand teenagers wanting to try it every now and then, but it's a WASTE. Look where I am right now, it's not any place that I imagined myself when I was younger, and I blame that on my wasted time. There's not any reason to cloud your brain, and muffle out the world. It's a beautiful place we're living it, so don't drown it out.

You know, I can deal with teenagers smoking, I really can. As long as they're not doing it 24/7, then whatever. They're young, they're rebellious, and they're definitely going to do what they want. What I don't understand is the adults who smoke every single day like their lives depend on it. Isn't weed suppose to be the drug that won't leave you with an addiction? Shouldn't they be able to carry on with their lives and leave the highness of their teenage years behind them? I did, I just don't understand people who don't. I think maybe I don't understand addictions period. If you have the will power and the drive to stop, then you can stop. Trust me.

If you're going to indulge in a smoky treat today, please be responsible. Stay off the roads and out of the public eye, for your sake, and everyone else's.


Have a happy day,

Babies and Prayers

I've got two things going on in my head today.

Thing #1: Baby Fever -

I don't know what my deal is, obviously I know having a baby is illogical. I mean, I don't have anyone to have a baby with, and I'm not financially responsible enough to take care of a baby. I keep thinking that I've turned into one of those 14 year old girls who have daddy issues and purposely get pregnant just so they have someone to love them unconditionally. I've seriously gone that crazy. Of course I'd never act on my baby fever, I'm not that stupid. I just have this need to care for something that needs me. I care for people all the time but none of them REALLY need me, I don't know. It's weird. I was in church yesterday and this lady came up to my grandma with a tiny baby in her arms, it was her granddaughter that she has custody of or something, and I was SO jealous of her. I think someone probably needs to just lend me a baby so I can get it out of my system. This is something that probably needs to pass quickly. So, find me a baby.

Think #2: National Day of Prayer -

I've been reading a LOT of Facebook status updates that are saying thinks about how President Obama had no problem supporting the Islam Day of Prayer that happened on September 25th, 2009 yet he's cancelling the National Day of Prayer for Christians. Firstly, let me say that The Islam Day of Prayer WAS held on Capitol Hill, but it was INDEPENDENTLY funded. President Obama did NOT have anything to do with this day of prayer, nor did any other members of the United States Government. It wasn't funded or supported by anyone besides an independent Islamic group. Just because it was held in on Capitol Hill doesn't mean it was President Obama's idea or that it was supported by him. He is NOT a terrorist, and he is NOT out to get you.

NOW, about this Christian Nation Day of Prayer. To have any kind of nationally recognized holiday based on a religion is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. You see, there is this little thing called Separation of Church and State and because of this, the government doesn't get to tell people when to pray, and they certainly don't get to tell people to pray to a Christian God. Sure, President George W. Bush supported this "holiday" but that shouldn't be surprising. There wasn't much that man did the right way. The government can not support a holiday of this nature without breaking the Constitution. But, my friends, don't blame President Obama for this, if you must pick a fight take it out on Judge Barbra Crabb, for it was her ruling that the National Day of Prayer no longer be national because of it's unconstitutional nature. To hear people say that President Obama stood behind a "Muslim Day of Prayer" but is not allowing the Christan Day of Prayer INFURIATES me because neither of these claims are true. We are still celebrating a Christan Day of Prayer, on the same day and in the same place as always, it's just not going to be called "National" and members of the US government have the option to attend or not attend.

It's simple as that folks, check your facts before you go shooting off at the mouth, or the Facebook status update.

Now, I'm going to stop ranting, and do something productive with my day. Go read a book and get some knowledge.

First Communion

All right,

So today has officially been the longest day of the year so far. I woke up at 6:30am to get ready for church, and Autumn's First Communion. I cried, of course. I don't know what it is with me and these girls but any time they make even the smallest accomplishment. Anyway, after that we came home and got the breakfast buffet going, and it went off without a hitch. By 11:30am Hannah and I were snuggled up on the couch and we both passed out. I woke up about 1:30 to see people putting together the trampoline. The kids were pretty excited about it, so hopefully it makes a nice addition to the yard this summer. Once that was over we kind of just fluttered around the house cleaning up and doing random things. I finished a book I was reading and now I'm feeling kind of lost as to what to do with myself. I know it doesn't seem like much happened, but it all went by SO slowly. I seriously can't believe it's only 9 o' clock.

I'll probably call it a night here shortly because my mid day nap didn't do me justice. I'm such a tired person lately. Hopefully if I sleep enough tonight, I can get it out of my system and make tomorrow a productive day. I'll get around to posting pictures from today eventually, the camera isn't in my direct vision and I'm too lazy to go look for it.

So, I guess that's about it. I hope everyone had a fantastic Sunday, and as always, I'll see ya tomorrow.

Crazy Days

Today has been a long day.

I actually got to sleep in a bit later than normal though, so that was a plus. But once I was up it was go, go, go. We had a lot of things to get done before Autumn's First Communion tomorrow so there was so time to stop. The only really good things about the day was when I went to my Grammy's to pick up Autumn. Hannah and I got to spend some time with her and laugh about chicken and roast beef sandwiches. She's a hoot. After that I stopped at The BK Lounge because Hannah insisted on the previously mentioned chicken sandwich and I ran into an old friend who just got back into town. It was really good to see him, and hopefully we can get together again soon.

After all the running around was done I came home and we all started cooking. Holly whipped up some egg salad and a giant, entire gallon of milk batch of sausage gravy to put in the crock pot tomorrow. After Autumn's communion, we're doing the traditional breakfast buffet thing. The only bad thing about that is ALL the crazy cooking and work we have to do. It'll be worth it. I took some pictures of the awesome cupcakes that we made but I'm not going to post them until tomorrow. BE EXCITED!

For now, I have to go straighten out my nappy hair and then hopefully go to sleep. See ya tomorrow!

Emotional Rescue


I'm exhausted. I know it's Friday and I should be excited to do something fun, but I'm really not. I basically had a very rare emotional breakdown today and it sort of drained any energy I had left.

I did end up making some stuffed shells for dinner, and people to munch on since I believe there's going to be a movie night tonight. I kind of hope not though, I'd rather just crawl into bed and sleep for the whole night since tomorrow is going to be a pretty big day. Autumn's first communion is on Sunday and we have to prepare a little breakfast buffet and bake her cake. It's definitely going to be fun, it a LOT of work. It's worth it, she deserves to have a party in her precious little honor.

So, as of right now I plan to shower and put on my jammies. If anyone has anything good going on that would be worthy of me getting dressed and venturing away from the house for, let me know and I just might do it.

For now, I'll see you tomorrow.

Thursday, April 15, 2010



Today it was like 80 degrees outside and I was supppper excited about it. I jumped out of bed and into a skirt. No pants for me today!

This blog is going to be pretty short, I'm in the mist of cleaning up and watching Vampire Diaries, plus I don't really have anything to talk about.

I SINCERELY hope that none of you wore pants today though, seriously. The weather was too nice for that nonsense, especially because shitty weather is something at us in the next couple days.

Tomorrow I don't have much going on, I think I'll head to Monroe in the evening because Katelynn is having a bon fire, should be fun.

Anyway, I'm out - commercial is over hahha.

I'll see you tomorrow, and you may wear pants.

Grammy's and Earthquakes.

Hey Folks!

Today has been another one of those obviously long day. I did about 46 loads of laundry, two of which I am still not done with, took Autumn to dance, got bitched out by the evil dance studio owner because of something that is CLEARLY not my fault, visited my Grammy and Aunt Kathy, was late picking Autumn up from dace, came home, made dinner, and now I'm just waiting to go pick up Hannah from church. Run on sentences FTW.

Weird part is Grammy was making weirdo jokes about her name already being on her headstone, and that we should just cremate her and dump her in the grave. I don't really even know what she was talking about, it was strange.

You know what though, EARTHQUAKES. WHAT THE FUCK? In case you are in the Land of Oz and didn't hear, China had themselves a pretty sever earthquake today. I just don't get it, what goes on with all this crap? We are only four months into 2010 and already we've had more deaths via earthquakes than they did in 2004 when The Indian Ocean earthquakes happened, you remember, with the Sri Lanka tsunami and all. That is INSANE. Those earthquakes happened at the end of the year too, so I mean, it's a pretty magnificent number. It's starting to freak me out a little bit. What do you guys think? Is the world ending in 2012? Nahh.

Anyway, I'm about to be late, Canton, here I come!

See ya tomorrow,

Is This Day Over Yet?


I just have to get through this post and my day can be done. It's been the longest day that I can remember for sometime now. I got up and went into the office this morning, of course everyone was in a pissy mood so they all got on my nerves. In the middle of that I managed to take Angie grocery shopping, and work on some filing, both sucked equally.

After the office we headed to Monroe to try and get Hannah's nose pierced again, with no luck. Apparently they're pretty strict on the whole "You must be 16" law. Whatever. Once that was done we headed over to Brad's, hung out with him and his kids, had dinner, and I failed epically at Guitar Hero. But that's nothing new.

So now here I am, with a pounding headache from his big ass TV in his small living room, and I just want to sleep. So that's what I'm going to do.

Goodnight peeps,

Lactose Forgetfulness.


Today, I applied for a job working in a kennel. I'm not entirely sure why I did that, but it sort of sounded fun, and I just had the urge to do it. I like dogs, I like Macie anyway.

After that, I made a pot of coffee, didn't drink a single drop of it, and drank a glass of milk instead. Biiiiiig mistake. I don't even know why I drank the previously mentioned glass of cow juice. I can't remember the last time I even THOUGHT about drinking milk. I don't drink it - ever. So it was about 10 minutes after that that I remembered my mild case of lactose intolerance. It wasn't pretty. I had to go get Autumn from church in the middle of my little, puke my brains out episode. It wasn't awesome, that's for sure. Luckily the nausea passed with in a couple of hours and as of right now, I'm feeling pretty good. Hopefully it stays that way.

Tomorrow I had to go find cake pan shaped as a cross somewhere. Autumn is having her First Communion this Sunday and we're trying to get all the loose ends wrapped up for it - weird cross pan included. So if anyone knows where I'll be able to find one of those, please let me know. I don't want to go on a scavenger hunt.

Oh! Hannah is looking for a sweet band to do a project for school on. I'm trying to convince her to do Bright Eyes, but she seems to be resisting for some freak reason. So, if you know of cool bands, send them our way.

As for now, I'm done.

Sunday, April 11, 2010


Hey aye, aye!

Today has been absolutely beautiful. Holly, Autumn and myself went to breakfast at The Stony Cony this morning, then came home and did work and stuff outside until about an hour ago. So there really isn't much going on with me.

I kind of just want to go to sleep, there doesn't seem like much else to do today. I'm kind of dreading the week ahead of me, I don't have ANYTHING going on at all so I don't really know what I'm going to do with myself. It's making me oddly nervous and irritable. I'm so sick of not doing anything, I wish I could bring all the good people out of Monroe and plant them into my neighborhood hah. I'm in a whiny mood, and no one wants to read a blog about nothing but whines, unfortunately that's probably all I have today. So I'm going to keep it short, and end it now.

I'll see you tomorrow.

Opening Day - Complete

Ayeeeee -

Better late than never today, huh? Yesterday was a pretty successful Opening Day. Aside from a hurtful moment at the end of the night, everything went off without a hitch. The Tigers won, Matt Giraud was a giant surprise, singing the national anthem, and we arrived home safely. Today I've basically just been recovering. I'm losing my voice and I'm still not feeling 100% well. I was thinking about venturing out into the world, but seeing as it's nearly 10pm and I still haven't showered or gotten dressed, I'm going to just assume that's not happening.

So, because I'm feeling pretty lazy, today you mainly just get pictures from yesterday. Enjoy - and I'll see ya tomorrow.

Happy Home Opener!


I seriously almost forgot to blog. We're set to leave in 10 minutes and I totally forgot until I looked at the computer and saw the Blogger icon! Whoops!

Last night I didn't fall asleep until 2am, partly due to excited nerves and partly due to snoring in my ear. So eventually I went downstairs to sleep by myself only to be woken up at 6:30am to Holly's angel voice trickling down the stairs talking about Macie having diarrhea in her room. So we cleaned that up, took showers, got ready and now Angie just got here with my awesome birthday headband. No worries, there will be pictures.

So yeah, we're heading to Detroit to do some major celebrating. Hope you guys having a happy Home Opener!


Thursday, April 8, 2010


Today has been a mix of aggravation and happiness.

Let's start off with the fact that I woke up to my niece coming down the stairs saying "You know it's noon, right?" I did not know it was noon since I had been freakishly sleeping like a rock. I don't even know why I slept like that, I am almost ALWAYS awake before 8:30am so there was really no explanation. I know yesterday was my 21st birthday but I can promise you I didn't drink a drop of alcohol so my elongated sleeping is really unexplained.

Anyway, once I was finally up for a while Joe Bro called. Which if you're a continuous reader you understand my weird issues I've been having with him. The whole feeling like we hate each other thing. Today's call totally erased all of those feelings and I'm feeling pretty excited about it. We talked for about 45 minutes and I convinced him to get a Facebook account. It was a good conversation and hopefully there will be many more in the future. ALSO! Last night Holly bought a new coffee pot, so I got to have coffee today, hurray! The bad parts is basically just that something personal came up with our driver to Home Opener tomorrow so we're kind of stuck without a ride. Everyone keeps suggesting stupid ideas that would obviously not work, so it's getting aggravating. Half the people are whining about not wanting to go now, and the other half are whining about not wanting to do one thing or another. It's whatever though. I don't even care at this point, Happy Birthday...

Right now I need to get Autumn reading for Church pictures and I'm sort of in the middle of watching the Tigers catch up to the Royals. We'll see..

I'll be back EARLY tomorrow...well that is if we still go and everyone stops whining.

21 is Upon Me.

Welp, it's here.

I'm 21 - and no, I don't feel any different. I'm not sure if that was because I had my good friend Tabitha with me these last six months and I could go and do whatever I wanted, so I'm used to it? Who knows, but if today is any indication of what the next year of my life is going to look like, I should probably just do away with myself right now. I've been sneezing all day and my head is pounding. The headache I'm going to blame on the fact that my coffee pot has been broken since Sunday so I haven't had coffee all week. I'm addicted, and what do you do when you're having withdraws? Sleep through them. So that's what I did today, slept, and sneezed. Awesome

No, seriously though, I've gotten a lot of birthday wishes and I appreciate every one. I even appreciate the people who seem to have forgotten hahaha. I am going to make the best of the remainder of today. After Holly get's home we're taking Autumn to dance class and then Hannah to get her nose pierced. In there somewhere I have to go renew my license, which I'm not excited about. It makes me mad I have to spend $20 on my birthday to do something I don't want to do. After that we'll probably just lay low and sleep some more ;).

But once today is over that means ONLY ONE MORE DAY UNTIL OPENING DAY!!!!!! HURRAY!!!

I can't wait!!

I'll see ya'll tomorrow!

Nearly There..

This post makes 90 days. If I were temping for a job, today I'd be hired in. I feel kind of accomplished and proud of myself. One of my niece's friends came over here yesterday and said "Aunt Faith, I'm thinking about starting a blog." All that I said to her was that it takes a lot of dedication if you want to do it right. Even I am not fully dedicated yet, there are days when I completely half ass the blog. Quite a few of them actually. I hope that she does start blogging though, it's really therapeutic and I know that it could help her as long as she devotes some time to it.

Anyway, enough of that. Tomorrow, I turn 21. It's so weird how all through out my teenage years I longed for this birthday. I seriously couldn't even wait, I wanted to be able to buy alcohol and go out whenever I wanted. Now it's here, and I really couldn't care less. I'm not going out at midnight like I always thought I would, and I'm really just not excited. The only thing that makes me happy is Tiger's Home Opener on Friday, and I'd be excited about that, birthday or no birthday.

So here's to another year, 21 have passed and I hope to at LEAST triple that. I need to triple it. If so little has happened in the past years, I know I need a lot of time to make up for it and get the things done that I need to get done. It's time to start living, I'm going to start 21 out right, healthy, happy.

Wish me luck..

Detroit's Opening Day!

Today is Tiger's Opening Day! Baseball season has officially started bitches! I'm so excited! They're playing KC Royals and the game started off pretty good, but it's now 1-2 - Royals which is kind of annoying. It's whatever though, we're only in inning four. I'm sure it'll all turn out in Detroit's favor.

Besides baseball making me entire day, it hasn't been so bad actually. Considering I woke up with a cold and unconsciously blew my nose on a shirt laying on my floor in the middle of the night, I'd say things are going well. The weather has been beautiful so I've kind of forgot all about my untimely sickness. I've just been cleaning up around the house, and cleaned out a few more closets in the process. I found a pair of Ed Hardy flip flops, which I thought was hilarious. I wasn't aware I live with anyone who attended The Tool Academy. Hah

So right now I'm just experimenting with Easter leftovers, hoping to have my Alexander Graham Bell Food Moment. We'll see how it goes, but it's usually not a good outcome when I experiment. I've failed so big, so many times. Hopefully the girls are not really hungry today.

Anyway, the kids that Hannah babysits just arrived, so I guess I better get off here and stay out of the way. Not to mention I have a baseball game to watch.

I'll be back tomorrow - just one day before I won't have any cool birthdays to look forward to.

See ya!

Epic Failure

Hey hey,

So much has been going on today and yesterday that blogging has once again slipped my mind for a while. I would be a lying fool if I said my party went off without a hitch. I'm not sure if it's failure was due to the weather, or the fact that I don't have friends anymore. A lot of people said they were going to show up, and not a lot did. I only had like two people show up who didn't classify as family - and one of them I didn't even invite. It was just weird. Last year we had so many people there but that was probably largely due the fact that there was a keg and I had only recently moved away from Monroe. It's whatever though, I'm not even worried about it. I had a good time with the few friends who did show up, so I'm not complaining.

This morning I woke up and got to listen to Denise and Tony bitch at each other for a while, which was humorous as always. I swear they don't even need to get married, they're already like an old married couple. Tony made me some weak ass coffee, and I helped Denise make deviled eggs. After that they scooted out to K Mart so I went next door to hang out with Ollie and his family before he took me home on his way to work. When I got home Angie and her family were here and Holly was cooking Easter Dinner. Hannah and I went to the store and like the most awesome niece that she is, she bought me Starbucks for my birthday. That definitely made up for the horrible coffee Tony made. Once we got back we ate dinner, walked the trail and forced Holly to actually throw away the clothes we put in her throw away pile. Now, we're kind of all just chilling.

I think tomorrow will be good, the weather should be fairly nice, so I'm thinking about finding some fun, outdoorsy spot to watch the first Tiger's game of the season. I can NOT wait. I'm so freaking excited, I don't even know how to explain it. What is not exciting is the fact that it's not only going to storm Wednesday and put a damper on my actual birthday, but it's going to rain Friday and put a damper on the Tiger's Home Opener and my birthday celebrations. Sucks!

Anyway, I'm going to try and wind down for the day and hopefully get a good night's rest. I'll see ya tomorrow.

Party Day!


Today is the big day! Unfortunately I am already irritated, surprised? I've got to get my irritability in check or something. I think it might just be the morning time that's been ticking me off. Especially when I couldn't fall asleep until 2:30am and when seven year olds and fat ass dogs run around the down stairs it sounds like a stampede when you're sleeping in the basement. ANNOYING.

On the plus side, I'm definitely in the mood to watch some drunk people, so I hope everyone gets wasted today. It should be a GREAT time. Especially if Mandy Pannies shows up with 47 bottles of wine in tow. Awesome. I'm excited to see my friends, since it has been forever and a day since I've hung out with anyone not 10 years older or younger than me.

Anyway, I have a lot to do before we head to Monroeville, so I hope to see everyone in a few hours, and if I don't....well, you obviously suck.

Happy Birthday Ollie!


Today has been soooo long. I didn't get to sleep last night until like 3am, and then woke up at 7:30am and went into the office. I putzied around there for a while doing notices and trying not to make fun of maintenance men before I went to Kroger to do some shopping for the party tomorrow. Which, brings me to the most important issue of the day: My brother Ollie's 31st birthday.

Now, I love all of my brother's, but Ollie is the one who could probably never get mad at me, and has always been there whenever I needed anything. He's usually there when I even want something. I don't know how I got so lucky to end up with family members like I do, but I don't think there is much anyone else could ask for. Ollie is the truest, most genuine man that I know. Not only has he always been the best brother there is, he's a terrific husband, and a loving, nurturing father to two awesome boys. Plus, he has he lets me share his birthday glory every year, so really what's not to like?

I have so much to thank him for. From the way he ALWAYS insist on opening my car hood whenever I'm in town, to how he always ask if I need anything at least once, even if he doesn't have anything to give. There isn't another guy on this earth that I would trust the way that I trust him. I sincerely hope that my future husband is even half the man that he is.

Happy Birthday Bro Man. You deserve it.

I'll be back early tomorrow before the party! Be sure to be there!

April Fools!


I seriously almost forgot to blog today. I'm such an ass.

I've been so wrapped up in April Fool's Day and pulling off my fake relationship with Sloppy McSlopshot that I totally forgot about blogging. Not to mention I spend FIVE hours cleaning out Holly's closet today. It was pure hell.

So now, after all my fun pranks are pulled I'm just relaxing trying to find something to do tonight. No one is really home and I don't have anything to do in the morning so I'd definitely like to have some friend time. So, bring it on!!

Anyway, don't forget mine and Ollie's party is Saturday! So you all better be there!!
