The Friday Five 

I saw this place online the other day and it has five questions to answer each Friday. He didnt have any this week, so I went to his archives....
You have just won one million dollars:

1. Who do you call first? My mom

2. What is the first thing you buy for yourself? Probably some jeans or a DVD

3. What is the first thing you buy for someone else? A shirt for Travis

4. Do you give any away? If yes, to whom? I share it with my family

5. Do you invest any? If so, how? I would probably set aside half of it into a savings account, cds, and mutual funds. I don't trust the stock market after working in it for 7 years.

That was fun!
I am off to Timberlawn today. We went to visit Cory last night and he seems to be ok. He is sleepy. I think he was asleep at 7. Which means I need to get there earlier in the day if I want to catch him awake.
OH MY GOSH.... It's Peanut Butter Jelly Time! ... This cracked me up. Helen sent me the link. She's a silly girl. :) I hope it makes everyone's Friday better! I think I will play this all day.

I can't wait to see The Passion of The Christ. My mom wants to bring the whole family and Timmy and Stacey. We are also going to stock up on kleenex now. I heard that everyone leaves crying. It's going to be horrible to watch, but I think it will also be good. I'm sure hoping someone else I know sees it firsts and tells me how it is.
Well, we had our first class of 1995 reunion meeting last night. We are thinking about getting a planner. I think it will be good that way. They will front all the money and we just give them the cost of our tickets. The tickets may be a little more expensive than normal. I'm not sure how much tickets normally are, but is $80 high? A person. Do we need to have a bake sale or car wash :) It's exciting. I can't wait for next year.
My counseling weekend was postponed, so now I have nothing to do today. I'm sure I will find something. I have never had a problem finding things to do.
I am having some trust issues right now. I have had a hard time in the past trusting people, but lately, things have happened that broke that trust. It will take a while to gain it back.
Cory is back in the hospital for his second round of chemo. Keep him in your prayers. I get to go visit him tonight. We will play games and watch tv and make fun of hospital food. Good times.
I can't wait until ACA (counseling) conference. It's in Kansas city this year. I get to explore Travis' home state. It will be fun. And I will learn lots of good stuff about counseling. Can't wait!!
Helen never comments on here :(

I never got a call back from Brandon's assistant. I called her 3 times yesterday asking her to call me back and give me directions but nothing. I guess she got mad that I didn't call her back on Friday. She kept calling while I was subbing and I would call back and get a voice mail. Then Friday I totally forgot to call her back with all the fuss over Janie's birthday. I did call her sunday night, though. Oh well. It's just as well I guess. I was a drive to downtown for 4 hours or work each day. I would have liked going several days a week for 8 hours instead of each day for 4. It kinda screws up the internship and class and anything else I have planned in a week.
Travis and I are going to see the Mavericks kick butt tonight. We ride the train out there, so we don't have to pay for parking. It's pretty fun. We met some interesting characters last time we rode.
I have a confession to make. I was once obsessed with watching the Golden Girls. I watched them several times a day on the black and white, 13 channel tv mom allowed me to have in my room once I was in high school. :) Did anyone else have a weird tv show obsession? I absolutely loved them.

I'm almost an adult 

My inner child is sixteen years old today

My inner child is sixteen years old!

Life's not fair! It's never been fair, but while
adults might just accept that, I know
something's gotta change. And it's gonna
change, just as soon as I become an adult and
get some power of my own.

How Old is Your Inner Child?

I had a great time at Hard Rock last night. We had 9 people show up. It was great. Thanks to Krystal, Chris, Ryan, John, Brian, Helen, and Travis for coming. We went to Red River after and did a little dancing. Thanks to all who came. I had a blast. I finally got to do some dancing. (I had been bugging travis for 4 months to teach me to two step) I can't wait to go again.
Tonight I went to a silent auction/ musical at my church tonight. I ended up winning a gift certificate to Dick's Last Resort for $25.00. I also won certificates to Malibu Speed Zone. It should be fun. And it was for a good cause - the choir.
There are a lot of good scary/creepy movies coming out soon. I can't wait to see them. Travis hates them so it's either bug him until he goes, or find someone else who enjoys being scared :)
Tomorrow Travis and I get to go shopping for crafty things for his homework assignments. It should be fun. I get to do most of the decorating. Baseball stuff, of course.

Spring Break is coming up in a month. I hope it is really warm. I hope my good friend Steve Wilson will let us stay at his house and we can hit the beach for a day or two. I wonder if it will be warm enough to have fun at the beach? I went in October and could still have a good time. Anyone up for the beach? :)

I went and got my oil changed today. I had a 10% off coupon and it still cost me $70.00! What the heck. Why didn't anyone tell me that when I got a diesel, my oil price would increase? That's more than I can make in a day. How depressing.
I did go see Monster while I was waiting on my oil change. It was a true story, but I don't think I really liked it. It was sad. It was intense. It was kinda boring. I still can't decide if I enjoyed it. Weird.
We are going out to Hard Rock for Janie's birthday this weekend. That will be fun. I tried to make reservations, but apparently they are all full. I hope we don't have to wait too long. I think we have about 11 people going. I'm going to make cupcakes for it. Yum.

Tuesday, February 17, 2004

I hope everyone had a fun day off. I didn't actually have a day off. I guess it was about half and half. I went to Timberlawn.
Mom bought all the towels and fixtures and everything for the guest bathroom. That will also be mine and Timmy's bathroom until we can get our houses built. I am not sure Timmy will actually be living on the land. I know he will have his studio out there. I think that is almost done. It has a roof and walls and a floor. I am sure we will all be painting it soon. I am a little frustrated about where to put my house on the land. Mom and dad took the place I was going to build mine at. And my house won't be able to be seen from the road. :( Oh well, I guess I won't have to fix it up nice :)
I get to go to a lecture tonight about being "Addicted to Love". I hope I don't find out that I am addicted to love. :) It will be interesting. I can't wait!

Well, it's the day after Valentine's day. We had fun yesterday watching movies and eating pizza (and some chubby hubby ice cream). We watched Alex & Emma (great movie... Travis says "basic") and Underworld (not as good as I thought it would be). My flowers smelled awesome! I love getting flowers.
I have a tape due for class this week. I am pretty worried about it. The first grade is always the most important. She expects a lot out of me because I had her before. There's nothing like a lot of stress to start out the week!
Travis and I have been arguing a lot. I'm not sure why. I guess it's just something that happens? Maybe it's the distance. I have never dated someone that lived that far before. And I absolutely hate driving. It makes for a bad combination sometimes. It's every little thing that is setting us off.
I think we now have electricity on the land! We still just have a concrete slab, but I think they are going to try to work at the end of the week if it dries up. This darned rain is keeping them from getting our house done. Ugh. I can't wait for it to be done. I have no patience.

Quiznos took their idea?? 

Cracks me up!
Today is 4 months for me and Travis. He took me to Red Lobster and brought me cookies from Corsicana's famous fruitcake bakery. They are soo good. Praline, Cherry, and sugar. I am going to get as big as a house from those darned cookies! :)
Only two more days until the weekend. And Friday the 13th. I would love to play a prank on my brother. Does anyone have any ideas?

Tuesday, February 10, 2004

I got shrimp tonight! Yum. It wasn't all you can eat, but it was shrimp Tuesday. 30 shrimp in two styles. I couldn't even finish that. We got a free appetizer for joining the club, so we had mushrooms and scallops in bacon. It was great!
I have to get my resume together. I must start earning money. I also need to write my article review about the modified life style assesment theory/technique. I even have to write an outline. I don't even know what the outline should be or how to do one. Do I outline the article or do I outline my review of it? Why do we need outlines in Counseling? Didn't we cover those in high school? Can I be done with school now??
Cory starts chemo tomorrow at 6 pm. Keep him in your prayers. He goes to the hospital at 8 am. That is a lot of waiting to get started. I guess they have tests and things to do.
I helped Timmy and dad work on the studio. It has a roof and walls now! It's very exciting. Our house still has no electricity ... or anything. Just a slab of concrete. I hate waiting.

The Watson Compound 

Yahoo! Photos

They want to cut School Counselors 

American Counseling Association: Briefing Papers

I just got back from volunteering at Five Star Kids Roundup. It was for kiddos that had parents with drug or alcohol problems. It was through the Betty Ford program. It was really neat. We made affirmation cards. They are a lot of fun. I talked to one lady who had custody of her grandkid. He just got out of the hospital for a suicide attempt. He was 8!!! It is so sad. Why can't parents learn how to take care of their kids? Why do they become parents if they don't want kids? It makes me so mad!
I am thinking about going to Austin for some music festivals. I have a friend who is letting me know the scoop about that. I can't wait. It would be fun!
I want some all you can eat shrimp at Red Lobster. I think it is only good for one more week. Hopefully I will get to go before the deal runs out. Yum. I love shrimp. And Lobster. And crab. Mmmmmm
Hope everyone had a great weekend!

It's Friday! 

I just found out my lovely Volkswagen Beetle only has 90 horsepower. My old mustang had 260 horsepower. That is a HUGE difference. My beetle is nice, though, because I get 45 mpg on the highway. I really like that. I just didn't realize it had absolutely no umph.
I went to the Ft Worth rodeo yesterday. That was a lot of fun. One guy was actually knocked unconcious and had to go to the hospital. the announcer said he was ok, though. The rest of the show was great. A lot like the Mesquite rodeo.
Anyone out there want to be in a band? Bass player, guitar player, sound guy? We are looking for some to be in a country band.
I can't believe Friends and ED are both ending this year. I am very sad. I should have a farewell party :)
We are celebrating Janie's birthday at Hard Rock on the 20th. Anyone who wants to is welcome to come out and play. I think we are going dancing at Have a Nice Day afterwards.
I want to go somewhere. I want to take a trip. I was supposed to go to Kansas to see the Rascal Flatts play, but it was snowing like 8 inches. That is kind of a catch 22, with the snow. I really want to see it and play in it, but I dont want to drive in it to get there. How do I get there? Hope its clear the day I go and come home but hope it snows a lot and then melts real fast while I'm there? Anyways, I would love to go to San Antonio or Austin or Oklahoma or something for a little while. Anyone want to join me? We could turn it into an event. (as you can guess I really like having lots of people around all the time)
Cory starts his chemo on Wednesday of next week. That or Friday. It will be 5 day inpatient the first time. Keep him in your prayers. The doctors are very hopeful with the way they are approaching it.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

I'm thinking he's a computer nut! 

HOLLAND, Mich. - Some parents will name their son after the father, tacking a Jr. or II onto the end of his name. This tradition was apparently too common for one engineering techie who decided to add 2.0 to his newborn son's name. Jon Blake Cusack persuaded his wife, Jamie, into naming their child Jon Blake Cusack 2.0. Version 2.0 was born at Holland Community Hospital last Tuesday, and he was taken home Friday. Cusack said he wanted to name his son something different and came up with the idea a few months ago. After encouraging his wife to go along with it, she finally conceded a week before the birth. The proud parents sent out an electronic birth announcement after 2.0's birth. "I wrote in the birth announcement e-mail stuff, like there's a lot of features from version 1.0 with additional features from Jamie," said papa Cusack.

It's a new day! 

Happy Wednesday! I feel like I didn't sleep at all this morning. I have to get up and go to Timberlawn, but I want to just sleep and make this headache go away. We got back pretty late last night. (well, 12:30, I'm so old now!) We went to meet with the band Travis is joining. It sounds like he will have a good time. The head guy is willing to financially back it and he owns his own print shop for publicity. The singer is also really good. And of course the drummer kicks butt. 459 It is going to be hard, though. Travis will be practicing on Tuesdays, Saturday days, and Sunday nights. Tuesday and Sunday nights were our nights to hang out. I will miss that. Now I will see him on Saturday nights and Fridays after I do dinner with my family. (We have always all gone out together on Friday nights... family bonding) Anyways, I am sure I will get used to it and I know he will have a lot of fun.
Brandon told me to send in my resume. Ugh. I guess I need to re-write my resume first. I'm not even sure I know where it is. It would be a good idea to have it since I will *hopefully* graduate in May and should start looking for a big girl job. That seems so scary. I think I have been a little too sheltered to want to hang in the real world for very long. It is too much for me to handle! Can't I just stay in school forever? I could get my doctorate. Be called Dr. Watson :)
Well I suppose I should get to Timberlawn before I am super late. I am always late, but I don't want to be that late!

Tuesday, February 03, 2004

Right now I am currently trying to get my friend Brandon to give me a job. I see absolutely no problem in working for him. I do what the boss says when I am there and then I gripe about him behind his back. How can that mess up a friendship??
Speaking of friends... I have a friend in Hillsboro who is a great guy. He is one of my greatest friends a gal could ask for. Thanks Ryan.
I talked to my friend Brian about getting his iPod. Those suckers are expensive! Especially for someone who has no job (which would all change when Brandon becomes nice). I guess I will have to hold off on that. Ugh. I want it!!
Have I mentioned that I love the Newlyweds? Something about watching them fight and make up and yet still enjoy being with each other. It's nice to watch famous people be real. I think the first season is out on DVD already. (hint hint... just in case someone wants to buy me a present)
Tonight I get to go to Logan's. Travis is meeting with a band that wants him as their drummer. They should - he's the best drummer ever. I'm excited for him.

It's me again 

Chipotle is a burrito place. I heard it was the poor man's version of Free Birds (at big A&M). Everyone should look it up and taste it. And bring me with you!!!
I subbed for home ec at high school today. It was odd since it was my old rival school when I was in high school. Very weird being there. I even had to send a kid to the office. Ha! Take that South Garland High School. Lakeview is still in control :) What's that about 26 year olds having to be mature and adulty?
I hung out with my friend Brandon tonight. We watched Average Joe 2. That is just so mean to get the "average" guys hopes up. The other set of guys are hot. I didn't think I was shallow, but MAN! Very nice. We also got slushys...smoothies. whatever. It was fun. It had been since October. We always have a good time just hanging out.
I started my list of things to do for the week. I have two and a half pages. It seems a bit much. I sure like the feeling of crossing things off when I'm done. Because of that I put "shower" and "sleep" on my list. At least I will cross something off. Its a great feeling.
It's now bedtime for Jen. I love this blogging thing. Everyone should do it! It's so much fun.
Email me!
