The Voices Inside My Head


I didn't get it

They decided to re-evaluate the position. I am very bummed out about this.
I guess I will be spending my days pounding the sidewalk looking for another opportunity.



All this rain, which is good for the area, Is causing massive problems. We have a lake out front, one in the back, one running down the driveway and thru the rose bed next to it. Not to mention the soggy conditions of the grass out back. There is a missing lake near the entrance to under the house, luckily its dry under there, but umm yeah not a good place to have flooding. Eveything in the house is damp, the heater is on the fritz. That goodness I am in so Cal or this could be much worse.

Today is also the day I hear about my dream job, wish me luck.




Today is International Very Good Looking Damn Smart Woman's Day, so please send this message to someone you think fits this description..

Please do not send it back to me as I have already received it from a Very Good Looking Damn Smart Woman!

And remember this motto to live by:

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, margarita in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Have an amazing day!


Happy New Year

I've been a bit remiss in posting, and am going to do my best to post as often as I can.
I really hope this year turns out better then the last. While there were high points: getting married & buying a house, there were lows as well: the passing of my grandfather, getting new of a layoff in the 4th quarter, countless job interviews that went no where, with the exception of 1.

Keep your fingers crossed that on Friday i get happy happy joy joy news.
That is if I don't float away by then.

I seriously need to get a job, hopefully one while i am still getting paid severence, as the money will come in handy to replace the windows we have. Seriously the condensation on the windows, walls and odd places around the house because of the cold Alaska storms headed this way bites. I am on Mold alert all the time. BLECH

Here is to you and yours, HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!


A new way of life

I've decided that if I want to improve my life, beyond getting a new job, then I need to rework the way I live it.
- As of last week I am going to the gym 3 days a week. I already feel less stressed.
- Most Financially responsible. I have generally been tiht with my money, comes from having none while in school. I've noticed myself spending more, and with the prospect of no job, I'm spending less. I make sure items in the weekly menu are reused, like Tacos, then chicken salad wraps for dinner. No more tortillas sitting in the fridge.
-Meet with my friends more often. I know we are all very busy, and it hard to get together all the time. But I think we can all fit in a dinner every few weeks
- start painting again.
- Finish my house projects. This one is driving me nuts. I didn't realize it till i looked into the second bedroom and noticed that you couldn't walk into it again. We hung up some of the pictures that were taking up the space. Once i finally paint the office ( i know i know) The rest will be up. I may just hang them up anyways.

I also need to finish Christmas shopping. I think a few iTunes cards for the kids who have Ipods and toy ones for the others would be good this year. Siblings on the other side, no idea. Its hard buying a present for SIL's hubby when he makes you angry. Hubby is all done, except for some stocking stuffers.

Off to work. Enjoy the day


Wow its been a while

I've been busy lately. With everything that is going on, I know need to get ready for the holidays.

This weekend I plan on cleaning the house, and starting to decorate. maybe we can get a tree.

Its also been freezing here most days, which sucks. Why live out west, if its going to rival the north for lows. yikes.

More later, back to work


Its Raining..... Again

Several people have gotten their notices, myself not being one of them.
I'm not worried, but being in limbo is oh so tiring.

With all the rain, we actually have green stuff in the front yard. Its not all grass, heck if its even 20% grass that would be amazing. We have lots of weeds, but it does make for a better looking yard when their is something other then DIRT. Well besides those damn freaking gopher wholes that are back.

Week 9 for football is done, my team is better then can be expected. The only problem with football season, is i tend to mark time by Football weeks. Football season is small, only till January, and that means we are getting closer to the holidays. Time moves way to fast during football season.

Better start cranking out those Christmas lists
