Dear Diary Saturday...

If you had been here with me, you would have had a project to do! Today was "cleaning day"...and I mean the tough, get into every nook and crany, kinda cleaning that I love! I did 6 loads of laundry, scrubbed the downstairs bathroom from ceiling to floor, dusted the whole house, cleaned my room, including under the bed (I know Toni, I'm weird), cleaned the parents' room (including inside their closets), cleaned anything with glass on it, cleaned all of the ceiling fans, and helped to make a pot of homemade chicken soup....AND managed to have all of this done by noon! I have no idea why I had so much energy, I did not even bother to take any of my vitamins today! And like I said, if you were here and in my got a project. My mom's project was to start the chicken soup and then to go downstairs and quilt. My poor daddy got to clean the drain of the bathtub (was draining slow), and then to empty out their huge closet so I could vacuum and dust, and then to change the light bulbs in one of the ceiling fans!!! Fortunately, tomorrow will be a relaxing day as all we are going to do is go to breakfast and then go book shopping for my mom. Oh, and for all of those interested...I found a wonderful cleaning product for showers called "The Works" and I found it, of all places, at Big Lots! It REALLY cleans the hard water and soap scum off of everything in your bathroom...I was truly amazed!!!!

Poor Dylan can not get a break! His mon's surgery went well, she has very little pain...then his dad had an entire toe nail removed and a corn dug out.....he is doing okay, hobbles and has pain....AND THEN his great grandmother gets hospitalized for fluid on her lungs!! SOOOO, we spent yesterday visiting his great grandma, saw a horrible, yet very entertaining movie, had dinner, did a little window shopping, and then headed back to his place to check on the folks! I swear, when his family decides to get sick, THEY ALL GET SICK TOGETHER!! And here is poor Dylan, doing all he can for everyone!!! Send him your energy....I think he will need it!

So, is anybody's car as FILTHY WHITE as mine is? I can't wait to wash it....

Dear Diary Thursday...

All is well. Dylan's mom's surgery went splendid and she is actually back home this morning feel pretty good and being yelled at by Joe to go lay down. She spent the night at St. Marks and I made sure she kept pressing the little morphine button so that her body would be in a nice state of relaxation to help heal. She will be on a clear liquid diet for 6 days and then soft foods for two weeks and then she should be recovered. I am pretty sure she is going to be cabin crazy after three days, so I am not sure what we are going to do to keep her down!

I am off of work! I took two days off of work for some well deserved "down time" for me and just in case Dylan's family needed me for any a four day weekend for me! Unfortunately, I woke up with a headache that could kill a rhino today!!!! Not sure where that is coming from, as I slept wonderfully last night, but I am sure I will be doing everything in my power to get rid of it and in a quick fashion!

The weekend looks to be a good one. Dylan and I are going to spend tomorrow together, hanging out and seeing a movie. Saturday and Sunday are completely UNPLANNED, which is a first for me, but I wanted a weekend that I could relax and do whatever comes my way. No shopping, no scrubbing, no laundry...just relaxation!

Dear Diary Tuesday...

It was HELL-DAY at work today. Non-stop faxes, non-stop phone calls, non-stop e-mails, non-stop projects....but I managed to stay sane in all of the insanity. I had a couple of "close calls" but I survived. I did get a huge giggle out of work today....I turned to one of my co-workers and said to her, "Do you ever have moments where you feel....overwhelmed?" And she burst out into large gales of laughter and looked me dead in the eye and said "Every single day that I work here and it is really fucking nice to finally here that from YOU!" That made me laugh to the point I had tears in my eyes. The facade has fallen....I can not do it all and I admitted it!!!

Anyways, things are moving alone nicely in my universe. I have not allowed the insanity of my sister to over come me, but gave her back her unhealthy energy. My folks and I are getting along swimmingly. Work is hectic, but fun. I am going on vacation in the next couple of weeks, and looking forward to it for a change. I have amazing friends and my relationships are getting stronger and stronger with each and every one. And an amazing fiance. I know longer allow, or try not to allow, unhealthy, vengeful, spiteful, or insane energy into my life (i.e. people like my SISTER) and feel a growing sense of peace. I have only my Gods and Goddesses to thank for that strength that I have achieved in the last year. Oh, and a few shoulders and ears from my great friends, whom I love dearly!!!

Question of the is a fun one...if you had one sexual experience you would like to DELETE out of your past, what would it be (getting caught, too quick, couldn't remember a name, etc etc etc)?

Dear Diary Monday...

The word for the day...exhausted. I woke up exhausted, worked my butt off today, came home exhausted. I could not figure out why I was so exhausted....then it dawned on me, or rather, hit me....I am getting a headache! Every time I am about to get a horrible headache, I become terribly tired....LIKE NOW! Kinda scary it only took me 32 years to figure that out!!

Work was draining today, just because the paperwork has gotten to be almost out of control. I took care of over 60 different fax issues today, cleaned our the research IN box four times. Thankfully, I think as the week progresses, thinks will get more in control....or at least that is my pipe dream for today.

Well, the "beloved" sister came over yesterday, and thankfully, she took note that I was not feeling well. I did scamper off to take a 30 minute nap while she was here, as my stomach was trying to come outside of my body, and I hoped that she would leave. But alas, she stayed around and left shortly thereafter. While she was here, she "managed" a major under taking of my daddy and my neighbor. We had a HUGE limb on our HUGE pine tree break due to the snow and it was hanging onto our sidewalk. So our neighbor came over with his massive saw and took care of the issue. Unfortunately, as I was turning onto our street this evening, I noticed another huge limb is broke near the TOP of the tree.....I wonder how many bones I will break after I climb to the top, cut the branch off, and some how manage to fall out of the know as well as I do that it will happen!

Question of the day....we were discussing this at work....."when does the "desire" leave a relationship?". My one co-worker SWEARS that it leave the relationship after about two years of marriage, another co-worker said it was after the first three months of moving in with her live-in, and another co-worker stated that she has been married over 20 years and the "physical desire" has NEVER left the relationship. Is it just individuals opinons of what that is?

Dear Diary Sunday...

Last night we had a wonderful time hanging with Jeffy. We decided to hit the Happy Sumo for sushi. Well, my taste buds and my stomach have both decided that we do not like sushi, as I am still enjoying the experience this morning! After the wonderful time we had at dinner, we traveled down and split up with the boys going into Virgin and myself traveling to Lane Bryant. I have been on a quest to find some cute t-shirts for when Dylan and I go to Vegas. Now, here is the problem...they have to be 1) very adorable, 2) great colors, 3) 3/4 length sleeves as it will still be FEBRUARY when we go, 4) not too big, and 6) not too expensive as they are T-SHIRTS. Well, I found them and I was thrilled! They were only $10.00 and I got burgundy, cherry red, dark pink, olive, and black. Adorable v-neck with lace, 3/4 length sleeves and BEYOND ADORABLE! What more could a girl ask for! Then I met up with the boys and I got a Starbucks coffee, hoping it would kill some of the weird tastes attacking my tongue and then headed to Jeffy's to play videos! Unfortunately, poor Dylan had to go to work early in the morning and was falling asleep on the floor, so we left Jeffy at about 11:15.

Today, I am planning on doing NOT A DAMN THING! I will make dinner, probably do some laundry, do a little cleaning, and relax a whole freakin' bunch! Like I stated earlier, my stomach is rolling on itself, so I think a day of doing nothing but enjoying the beauty of the snow outside will help me out!

Colors....Sunday-yellow; Monday-white; Tuesday-gray; Wednesday-peach; Thursday-turqoise; Friday-pink; Saturday-Brown
