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.

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 :(

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.

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?

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.

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.

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!

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.

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?

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.

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!

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!!

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!

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.
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.
