Well, we went to see THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW, but ended up seeing Laws of Attraction. The day after tomorrow was sold out. I was pretty bummed, but the other movie was good. It was a chick flick (sorry John) and so romancey. I love romance movies. I want to be romanced. I want to be sent flowers and love notes. I want someone to take my breath away. I want someone to love me so much they will do whatever it takes to make me happy. Is that too much to ask? :) I certainly hope not. I would like to get married and have kids before I am 90! Yep, I plan on living that long.
Today we did more work on the house. Well, we had lunch for my aunt's bday at Culver's. Yum! That is a great hamburger place in Rockwall. Let me know if anyone wants to go there. MMMM MMMM Good. Then we went to Home Depot and Lowe's afterwards to get tile and floor stuff. We also got junk for our chiggers. Aint those fun?! I'm all itchy from those little buggers.
Tomorrow is Memorial Day. I hope everyone takes the time to remember those who fought and served this great country of ours. Sure, we have our problems but I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Have a good week!

Will our house ever be done? I ache all over. It's hot out there since we have no electricity. It's dirty. Blah.
I got to see Raising Helen tonight. It was a good movie. I really liked it. Although, my throat hurt pretty much the entire movie from trying not to cry. Kinda left the theatre a bit bummed. So I guess I'm not up much for writing.
I hope everyone has a great Memorial Day weekend....

I want these

Wednesday, May 26, 2004

Oh my gosh. This sounds pretty true.
You're chocolate. You're the old soul type, people
feel that they have known you their entire
life. Many often open up to you for they view
you as thoughtful and trustworthy. Although
people trust you, you have a hard time trusting
them. You prefer to keep your feelings bottled
up inside, or display them very quietly. It is
alright to open up every once in a while.

Which kind of candy are you?

Ha ha. Ick. 

"Are caterpillars good to eat?" asked Little Johnny at the
dinner table.
"No," said his father. "Why would you ask a question like
"Well, there was one in your salad, but it's gone now."
I am done. Done with subbing for the year. I watched Drumline today for the first time. It was a pretty good movie. Had more cussing than I thought it would (since I was showing it to my whole 1 kid in class today). I liked it.
Anybody want to go see Jessica Simpson in concert? I think she is coming in June. I REALLY want to go. I might be a little obsessed with her. :) Any takers on joining me? I had a dream with her and her sister in it two nights ago. (I have been having lots of weird dreams lately) We went to her house and I was friends with her sister. Who we called Jesse, not Ashley. They lived in a log cabin thing in the woods. There were some mean animals out there, too. Odd.
Well, it's off to find more floors for our house. I can't believe we are putting floors in... I think that means we are close! YEAH :)
I'm getting Chipotle for dinner. Oh my gosh... it's so Yum. I am so freaking excited. How sad is it that I get that so excited over a darn burrito? They must put some sort of addicting substance in those things. I can't wait. John is bringing it over because I taped 24 for him. He is coming to watch it. I'm sure I will be reading or something seeing as how I have NEVER seen it. Why start now. :)
Today is the last day with the kiddos at school. I only have 2 classes and we are just watching a movie. Easy day. It's going to be weird not having to wake up at 6 tomorrow. It will be time to start a major full-out job search tomorrow, too. Must make income....
Stacey's birthday is Thursday. We are going out somewhere fun to celebrate that. Can't wait! I still have to finish making her birthday present tonight. I hope it turns out ok. I also have her a shirt that talks about Trading Spaces. She loves that show. It's pretty cute. It says "I'm a fan" and has a fan on it. Ha! Hope she likes it.
Gotta get to school. Have a super day!

We had our last game tonight. We lost. So our total for the season was 2 wins and 8 losses. I think we may start up another team on Friday night. I want to play both, but I will have to see what happens. I sure love playing.
The Rangers won on Friday! And on Saturday. I am not sure about today. I sure hope they sweeped them!! It was a great game Friday. We sat 3rd from the top :) Awesome. It was my present from John. I hope to go again soon.
Other than softball today and putt putt last night I have been working on the house. We have had to clean all the junk (drywall, paint, dirt, etc) off the floors so we can stain them. It was HARD WORK. I am not used to working that hard. My degree is in Counseling. We don't do that. I am beat! I am sure it was good exercise though... makes me feeler stronger already.
Anyone have fun things planned for Memorial Day? Have a good week!

More pictures of our house! It's painted now!

Friday, May 21, 2004

Wow. This has been an eventful almost weekend! :) Last night we went to the Winstar casino out in Oklahoma. It was pretty fun. I lost all my money. :( They don't serve alcohol there, which was odd for a casino. They did have a self-serve drink station. You guys know how much I like my beverages. Especially when I can just go get them whenever I want. I think I peed like 5 times last night!
Tonight I am going to the Ranger game. I can't wait. I hope they beat those Yankees. I even have a Ranger shirt to wear to support my team. Go TEAM! That should be fun.
Tomorrow I am doing something but that is TBA. I will find out shortly.
Sunday is our last game of the spring season. I hope we win again. It's a nice feeling, winning. Everyone should experience it at least once a season :) Then in 2 weeks we start summer season. GO GOOD TEAM!! Anyone out there know how to pitch?
I think I get to go to Galveston soon. That will be fun. I love the beach. Steve is always gracious enough to let us take over his place for the weekend, too. Nice guy. :)
It's Friday! Yeah. Only 3 classes until the weekend.

Andy Kaufman Returns 

Andy Kaufman Returns Do you really think this is him and it was just a stunt for all those years? Holy cow. I saw the movie. It could have been a joke I guess. But man....
This is a fun test: "77% Southern = You are a proud Southern Belle/Gent!"
Happy Wednesday. I went to visit Cory yesterday at the hospital. He had the surgery to remove his tumor. The only problem is that they couldn't get all of it. It's wrapped around too much stuff. So now we have to wait on all the biopsies (biopsys) they took and hope that the chemo and radiation shrinks it until it's totally gone. Keep praying for him. He had just gotten out of surgery yesterday so he was still pretty doped up but he seems in good spirits!
I am now subbing every day until the end of the school year. The doctor told her that she probably shouldn't go back to teaching yet. She is really dizzy when she moves her head and it hurts her pretty bad. (the tumors are in her head now). So keep her in your prayers. I know the kiddos miss her quite a bit. Maybe she will be able to visit!
I got Johnny Carino's last night for dinner. It was yum! And the guy even wrapped up a new loaf and gave me a little container of oil for my bread. How cool is he? I just might marry him! I mean, I do have my ring already picked out and everything. :)
The painters are done with the inside of our house! I have one blue wall, 3 white walls, beige doors and frames, and dark brown stained window sills. I am hoping to find the perfect curtain material to pull that all together. It should be really pretty. I think the painter is also doing the outside of the house. I hope to get some new pics up soon!

Well, I succeeded. I kept him awake way past his bedtime. :)
Happy Monday Everyone! My weekend was AWESOME. I hope everyone's was just as good.
Went and worked out at Curves 4 times last week. I will be the strongest chick in the world, yet!! Go me.
My party/get together on Saturday was a blast! I had so much fun. Thanks all you guys for being there! I had a great time and it wouldn't have been as fun without you all there. I ended up staying up pretty much all the night. It was super chilly and SO wet. It was almost like rain, but apparently it was just dew. That's what we have to look forward. Wet mornings! Yeah! And Brian will always hold the world's record for largest sausage. Hee hee. Camping is fun.
Sunday I got to go to Helen's house for her grad. party. That was also a lot of fun. Her mom made enough food to feed the entire city of Richardson. I think I ate enough food to feed 3 families. It was so yummy. And I got to see Helie. Yeah!
We also won our game last night! Woohoo. We were ahead 3-10 and then they came back to almost beat us (us silly heads just couldn't get it together once we started winning) 13-14. We won! We have our last game next week. It was nice to win this game, though. A couple who had defected from our team after thinking they were better than us and knew how to play better than Timmy (the coach, my brother, and the guy who has played baseball since he was freaking 3). So they were on the team last night. They beat us last time but we had our comeback!
I am off to sub for the rest of the week. I have a week and a half left until school is out. Then what will I do?!? A job? The real world? Scary.

I thought John would like this. Go Mavs!

Well, I had some fun on Monday. We went to subway at lunch. The guy at the counter and I had a communication problem (aside from the HUGE chip on his shoulder). I walked off and let mom handle it. Well, as I am walking off, mom hears him call me a DumbA...... Can you believe it? Right there in the Subway. I had already gone to the car so I missed the excitment. Mom tore into him. Got him fired on the spot. I just can't believe he was dumb enough to say that at all, much less loud enough for someone to hear. Especially someone that knows me.
I am subbing every day this week for the high school kids. It's so sad, the teacher found 2 more tumors in her brain and will be in there for radiation. It just seems like she is overrun with cancer. Pray for her.
Hope everyone has a great day!

Oh my. I'm not sure I like this new blog setup. I was just getting used to the old one ;)
We had our double header tonight. We did not win. Either game. I had fun. I was hitting really good....fouls. I can't seem to straighten them out for some reason. It was hard to get everyone there on Mother's Day. Next week it is at 7:00. Anyone want to come watch?
I also got to go bowling this weekend. I actually bowled around a 150. We only did one game. It has been a LONG time since I have bowled. I need to do that more often.
I hope everyone had a great weekend. :)

Saturday, May 08, 2004

We had our first lookers at the house today. They called at 1:45 and showed up at 2:00. We weren't quite prepared for that yet! :) Then they stayed maybe 3 minutes and then left. Apparently our house was not the one for them. I don't think they even went upstairs. All that work for nothing. Hopefully more people will start coming by so we can work on the drill!
I think a full moon must be out this weekend. Everyone is acting crazy! What's the deal?
I started working out at Curves. I have gone one time, but I really like it. I think it will hope me lose weight and tone my body and build muscles. (I wanna be able to throw the ball further) Jennifer Smith and I are going to start doing it together. It will be good because I will have someone to keep me accountable. If I didn't, I probably wouldn't want to drive out there all the time. I'm excited. It was pretty fun.

You’re all of the ‘Friends’!
How did that happen, you say? Maybe you’re vegetarian like Phoebe, a dinosaur-lover like Ross, and, at the same time, a clean freak like Monica. Maybe you take good qualities from Joey, and bad ones from Rachel, or vice-versa. As Chandler would say: Could you BE any more undecided?
Which Friend Are You? -
Our game was cancelled again! We are going to be playing a triple header if we don't get to play soon! That will probably kill me! :)
I didn't get to go to Corey's housewarming party. I had forgotten that we all had tickets to see Bill Cosby, so the family went and saw him. It was a good show. He does good clean comedy. I like that. He doesn't have to cuss or be crass. It's just funny stuff.
I am pretty frustrated right now with most of my "friends". I am graduating and having a small get together for it. (it is no longer called a party) I figured most of my friends would actually want to see me and hang out and kinda celebrate this big deal with me. - Just because people think Counseling is easy, does not mean they could all do it. It's actually pretty hard (but that's a whole 'nother soap box) - I just thought they would all make an effort to come out and see me. If not to stay the night, just to hang for a while. I make an effort to see them. I drive out to their houses or plan their parties when it's time. I make an effort to tell them happy birthday and see if they want to hang out every few months. It's never here at my house, though, it's always at their house. So I go. I figure it's what friends do. Well, I have maybe 6 people coming to the get together. I think I sent out like 50 invitations? How sad is that. It kinda makes me think about who my real friends are. I am tired of trying to hard to stay friends with the people who put no effort in it.
It's the same with dating. I am tired of putting so much effort in it, when all I do is feel like crap after. I never see any effort. I'm tired of it all! I don't want to date and I don't want friends. Why should I have those things that I have to work so hard at and never feel good about them???
It's just sad. My feelings are actually pretty hurt, too. I mean, these people could work around it. They could make an appearance. I am just not worth the effort. I will eventually make more friends. I know, once you get out of high school and college, your friends are few. At least those 6 people are my best friends! I'm glad they will be there. :) It will be fun with just us.
I think I will talk about my counseling coursework. This is turning out to be a pretty long blog. Everyone insists how easy counseling is. "oh, I think I could do that. It will be an easy A." "maybe I should go into counseling like you, you never seem to look like it is hard". Whatever. Counseling is tough. It takes a lot of work and a lot of practice to actually be a good counselor. Yeah, you could sit down and talk with someone, but that is not what counseling is. It's helping them. It's saying the right things so you can get to the bottom of the problem. It's not offering advice. It is enabling them to be able to learn from their counseling and then make better life choices in the future. If we do our job right, they won't be back after the first series of sessions. It is not that easy. It will become easy with time, but it is a struggle. It takes a lot of work and a lot of paperwork. Just because I don't stress out over it or act like it is a big deal, doesn't mean it's not. I am very proud of the work I have done to get my Masters. I have worked long and hard for this degree. I have written many a 20-25 page paper for every class. I have had 3 hours of homework a week for just ONE CLASS. It is not that easy, guys. I wouldn't turn your profession into something so simple as to say I could do it without trying or should sign up for it because it wouldn't take much work.
Well, ok. Now that I have gotten those two frustrations off my chest... hope everyone had a good weekend. Weird winter weather in May! It was awesome. (although I already packed my sweaters... brrr).
