Subject: What Did Or Are You Going To Do Today

Written By: RockandRollFan on 06/05/04 at 4:04 pm

Today I went over to the same park that I've been going to for the past 16 years to play basketball. I finally had a great day! We had a couple new guys there and on my last 2 baskets one that was covering me backed up and said "Five"...not knowing what he meant I shot and scored both times. When we were all getting ready to leave he came up to congatulate me and put a $10 bill in my hand! I asked why and he said that is what he meant..five bucks if you make this shot! I tolod him I appreciated it but made him take his money back ;) Now I'm waiting to see if Smarty Jones can win the Triple Crown and later hope the Flames can win the Stanley Cup :)

Earlier I went a bought a bunch of healthy food at Albertson's. Then I watched my sister clean my room. Now I'm just loafing around because my family is making me. And believe me, it's not as fun as it sounds. :P

Two hours left in the day. 

More than enough time to Build a Bill Gates doll and stick knitting needles in it, after finding that "Files and Settings Transfer Wizard" DOESN'T do what it is supposed to, and therefore all my desktop files have been blown away after my OS re-install.

Spent most of today writing my job profile for a new evaluation process.  The deadline is today.

I knew back in October vaguely when I would have to do it, at least a month ago exactly when I would have to do it and I did make a small start a while ago but left it to the last minute as usual.  I wouldn't mind but I'm one of the trained assessors so it should have been a breeze!

Now i'm going to sort out some other stuff I've been putting off.  One day I'll get round to replying to the procrastination thread  ;)

That's okay. I'm kind of p*ssed about it, though. We had everything planned, down to the wedding which we had planned, or whatever..

Now Louise tells me she loves me, and I can't do a thing about it. So I have to break up with Mel to keep her trust.

And she at least deserves to know that I still want her trust, if nothing else.

I don't even know any more. I just don't want to... do anything. Man, depression strikes.

Just got back from Yellowstone National Park. We had a really good time. It was great to get the whole family together again. Plus my car performed flawlessly (which means I'll probably keep it for a while longer).
      If any of you should ever get the opportunity to visit this great national treasure, I wholeheartedly encourage you to do so. We didn't have enough time to really get out and explore the park--it was mainly a driving tour, but the loop around the park is very scenic and takes you to the main points of interest. The geysers were really neat and we saw quite a few elk and buffalo from the road. Also, the Old Faithful Inn is a must-see.
Ever get to Colorado Springs?
No, I never did get too far south on that stretch of I-25. I've heard it's a really cool town.

I was SUPPOSED to have my first obstetrician's appointment today. When I got there, they told me that I couldn't be seen by the doc because I didn't have my Medi-Cal card yet nor did I have a temporary one. Now let me explain this: When I first went in to the social services to apply for Medi-Cal, I asked about a Presumptive Eligibility card and was told I didn't need one. When I took back the rest of my paperwork to the SAME office, I asked about a temporary card and was told that I didn't need one of those either, that I just needed to tell the doctor's that I had applied and give my case number. Obviously they were wrong.

So thanks to the wonderful (and snotty) workers at the social services, I got screwed out of my doctor's appointment and I now have to wait probably another month before I see a doctor. Thank you, government offices. ::)

Like a few people, I am doing laundry today-YUCK!  Would someone please answer this question for me? Why is it when I do laundry once a week, with the two of us, I only have to do one load. But, if I miss a week (for whatever reason), I end up doing THREE loads? It would seem that if it was truly a load a week, then the second week I would have to do two-not three. I am still trying to figure that out.

Sorry Cat, I can't answer your question.  I have only my husband and myself and it seems that even though I do laundry every week, it's always about 3 loads a week.



We have a BIG washer-at my insistance. We did have a tiny one and it took me about 3 or 4 loads a weeks. I was VERY happy when that washer died!

What other bands do they have there even if they are cheesy 80's bands?  I don't live very far from  there so I may take a drive down.  I happen to like some cheesy 70's & 80's bands.  Hope you had a better time than me working in a cube in a big office all night.

It was only after everyone had left (I stayed and ran a mile around the track) that I realized my keys were locked in my car! I had to walk 7 miles to my shop in Manitou Springs to get the spare and then me and Elizabeth walked back to the car....we were about 2 blocks away when the sky opened up and the rain poured down on us. We got to the car and the battery was DEAD! SO, I had to push it 4 blocks to a store where a couple guys gave me a jump start....Now I am at the shop and heading home soon to RELAX!

I spent part of the day formatting my computer (for the zillionth time).  I visited a website to get some cheat codes for a Playstation game for my kid and a darn trojan installed itself onto my hard drive.  Norton removed it (or so it said) but everytime I came back on the internet it installed itself again.  Why do people create these things?!  This all happened after work and I was already tired.  Something I didn't need....oops, this isn't a B**** thread is it?  So now I am updating everything again.  Takes time when you are on dial-up.

Today, I am going to Cardiff (Capital city of wales) by bus. The first thing I'm going to do here is go to the Fitness First gym down Newport Road, followed by a slap-up meal at TGI Friday's (www.tgifridays.co.uk). The last time I went to one was in November/December 1998 and I was in Bristol at the time. I remember seeing Babe: Pig in the City at a Warner Brothers cinema afterwards. I remember having a choc chip milkshake and cheese and ham wig wams for dinner. Here's my meal plan below:

Appetiser - Friday's Mushrooms 4 1 (£4.45)
Main course - Chicken Finger BLT (£8.35)
Side Order - Onion Rings (£1.95)
Dessert - Three scoops of Ben and Jerry's in Phish Food, Caramel Choo Choo and Peace of Cake flavours (£3.45)
Drink - Holiday Isle (£2.70)

The total cost for this meal is £21.40. I'm good at maths because I got a C in that subject when I did my GCSEs last year.

After my meal, I'll be going shopping around Cardiff and after that, I;'ll do my homework for college and spend the evening watching the two Lindsay Lohan (She's 18 today) films mentioned in my Happy Birthday LL! topic in the 2000s forum.

Just got back from spending 5 hours at the hospital with my mom.  And, since the broad (not a nurse) at the nurse's station in the ER is an idiot, I never got to speak to the doctor as she had told him we had all gone home.  I was standing right there when my dad told her "I am leaving but my daughter is going to stay...will the doctor talk to her to tell her what's going on?" and the lady said "Yes".  So, after asking for the third time whether or not she was back from her CT scan, a nurse told me that she had been taken to the ICU and took me down there and apologized for them not letting me know she had been admitted.  I said I must've been in the bathroom when she got back, and she said, "Well, we didn't even look for anyone as we were told you all had gone home".  Too bad I didn't get the "idiot's" name or the hospital would be getting one helluva nasty letter from me >:(

We finally got out to the boat yesterday. We were planning going up the lake to watch fireworks but one of the owners of our marina said they were going to have fireworks there. So we went to our mooring and did some fishing until the lights went down. (Well, fishing a bit of an understatement-they weren't really biting and what was, were very tiny-no fish for dinner). We did have a great view of at least three fireworks displays. Perfect view of the ones our marina set off and two off in the distance. We didn't know where to look. I'm sure we had a much better view then the people on the dock. There were others being shot off close by but we could only see the sky light up once in a while and heard booms-off in the distance. So very cool. I'm sure we had a much better view then the people on the dock. It was funny after a batch was set off and they were "reloading", everyone (my husband included) started tooting their boat horns, and making a whole bunch of noise. There was one person on the other side of the lake with a cow bell. What bothered me is that a few people on the dock had their own fireworks and were setting them off. We were down wind (and the wind was really whipping) and a few of them ended up right over our heads.  :o I have never seen the lake so busy after dark.

We spent the night on boat but was woken up about 4 this morning by rain, rain, and more rain. When we woke up this morning, it was dark and dreary so we came home-didn't get in ANY sailing but had fun watching the fireworks anyway.

For those of you who don't know what that is, its a Urinary Tract Infection and let me tell ya, I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy! The best way to help prevent it is drink LOTS and LOTS of water and Cranberry Juice. There are also vitamins to take as well. The only way to get rid of it though is with antibiotics, which I am on now, finally. *sigh of relief*

(Sorry if it grosses you guys out, but I wanted to say something so people know how to NOT get one of these babies, cuz they HURT!)

After that, I went to get my Rx filled, then came home.

Ouch!  You my sympathy on this one RIo.  UTI's are not nice.  You're right about the cranberry juice.  It helps kill the bugs that cause the infection.  There are sometimes some other causes

I have to agree with you about being careful in the sun. Unfortunately, I had skin cancer removed from my nose a few years ago, from all of the sun worshiping.

Okay. Tomorrow's the day. I'm not going to tell anyone what I'm going to do, but I'm going to do it. I put it off yesterday, I put it off today, and I'm going to finally get it done tomorrow. But I'm not going to say what it is until it happens.
Well Bobo, maybe I should start a thread called "What Are You Doing Tomorrow" and then you'd tell us! Seriously, I hope it's something that will make you happy :)

Went to church.  Didn't stay for the two sessions of nursery, though.  Sarah had a tummy ache so we went home.  I felt like I was playing hookey or something. ;)

Tonight I will be bringing Sarah back to her Aunt's house for her last week before the sitter comes home.
I hope she feels better, Dagny :)

I wouldn't mind some of that myself, truth be told...but, in the department marked 'Real World', I am currently up to my armpits and back in dusty old boxes and archive files, as the firm is 'supposed' to be moving at the weekend...

Fine, Paul! You've got me in a position I can't get out of, now.

To tell you the truth, it's worse than that, and she has the engagement ring as sure proof. Mr. Sneaky Matt, on the other hand, was far too sneaky for his own good, and this will surely come and bite him back in the posterior.

This made all the more easy by the fact that I'm now for certain not going to go to college next year, and I can spend 297 of next year's 365 days practising playing Scrabble at her's.

(Edit: But keep it all shushed, there are certain people I don't want knowing!)

I hope the work situation is sorted out at your end, Paul. As for me, for the next eight months, the signature line, courtesy of W. H Tyrus, is enough to put across everything necessary.

At the weekend we're getting together with a friend at his house.  It looks like the weather should be decent so we can kick the kids out into the garden (his two are similar in age to mine) whilst we catch up on whats been happening.  We're planning to go camping with him and his children at the end of August so we need to make some plans.

It is seriously raining here today.  I was going to pop into town and buy myself to trousers I spotted in a sale on Saturday (if they still have any in my size).  However I don't really fancy doing that given how heavy the rain is.

I also need to go to my daughter's sport's camp today to sort out all her lost property.  She has managed to loose a waterproof coat and her swimming kit and the leaders don't seem to know where it is or care that it is missing.  >:(  Although she is a reasonably bright child she is only 5 years old and still needs reminding to keep her kit together.  They don't have any coat hooks or anywhere to keep the stuff so it just gets left in whatever room they are doing the activity in.  Then when she changes room she just forgets to pick her bags up and they don't seem to check that the room is empty before letting it be locked up.

I'm getting very fed up with them this time.  There has been lots of niggly things going wrong all the time.  I think its getting time to write to Head Office!

I have made a big decision regarding my job. 

Work has been really slow and I had to go from being the Quality Control Director back to just being a keyer.  It has been an average of a $2-3 an hour cut in pay.  Well, I was looking at my paycheck stub today and realized that my insurance premium has doubled.  Apparently, the boss decided she couldn't afford to pay as much of our insurance as she was.  that doesn't bother me so much, what does is that she didn't tell us to give us the chance to cancel.

Well, I decided to cancel my insurance (pray that my daughter doesn't get sick) and look for another job that will give me hours.  I am the sole support of my family and can't afford this anymore.

I'm going to Pizza Hut for lunch.  It's just opened here so people from work are going to check it out.

I'll have to leave work early today because hubby is working away (in Seattle) and I'm fetching both children.  Sports camp finishes earlier than afterschool club did and its further away from work so it's a bit of a rush.

Thanks, all.

I talked to my boss today.  I am going to drop coverage on the short one...my boss pays 100% of my coverage and I pay 100% of the kids.  I am going to check into the local CHIP program, which is reduced or free insurance for lower income children.  I am also going to see if I can get just individual coverage for her at IHC.  I am also going to check with her school to see if they know of anything.  Her school is in a low income area so they might have information on insurance for the kiddos.  Until I find ins for her I will take half the premium I usually pay for her and set it aside as a sort of medical expense account. 

Our insurance at work is incredibly expensive because we have people with diabetes, heart problems, lots of babies, hypochondria, etc.  It sucks, but what can I do.  I think that all insurance companies need to have a medical savings plan so that people like us don't have to be penalized for the people who are always going to the doctor.  I visit once a year and Sarah goes once a year.  We haven't been to any other appts (sickness or emergency) for 2 yrs.  My premiums more than pay for what we get out of it.  Medical savings would be the way to go.

I feel like bad mommy dropping her health insurance, but also needs a roof over her head.  It sucks when it comes down to this.  I need to find a job with a company that doesn't rely on work from other companies outsourcing.  When the belts get tightened in the bigger companies the first thing they cut is the outsourcing.

I feel like bad mommy dropping her health insurance, but also needs a roof over her head.  It sucks when it comes down to this.  I need to find a job with a company that doesn't rely on work from other companies outsourcing.  When the belts get tightened in the bigger companies the first thing they cut is the outsourcing.


Asking her school is a good idea.  There should be options for insuring a child.  Now on a lighter subject, how is Nomar?  I am from Massachusetts, but not a Sox fan, would love to see him in the series.  He did a lot of charity stuff here, you guys will love him.

I did a search online and found a policy for her only for $39 a month, and her doctor is already a provider.  I am going to call the ins company tomorrow for more info.  With my employer, I would have to pay $160 a month for her.  Slight difference.

I should be able to find another job.  I am not picky about what I do, I just need to be able to pay the bills.  If I do quit my job, I can cash out my 401K and there is enough in there to pay off my credit cards, which is a huge chunk of my bills.

Danoota, as for Nomar...I am not in Illinois, but I am dang happy the Cubbies got him.  He seems to have added what the team needed...they are doing well again.  Thanks for handing him over, even though it probably sucked to have him leave.

Maybe you should see if you could talk to some kind of financial advisor before cashing in the 401K.  That should always be a last option. Get all the credit cards on one low interest card(internet search), a budget , anything.  I've seen to many people who just needed some help managing what they have, instead they have put themselves in a bigger hole.

Thanks for the advice...but I am on a budget.  I just am not getting the hours so I am living on $50 a week after all the bills are paid.  I am only in debt $7000 with the credit cards, but they are a huge chunk of the budget.  If I could get my hours I would be ok.  It's just that I am not getting the hours.  I am on my last options now...aside from losing my house and living on the street.

Written By: Dagwood on 08/12/04 at 8:40 pm



Dag, Danoota's right...cashing out the 401K wouldn't be in your best interests. First off, they take 10-20% right off the top as a penalty and then you get screwed again when you do your taxes. If at all possible, keep paying the minimums for now or consolidate them all onto a new one with an introductory 0% interest rate (or see if one of them has a 0% balance transfer option) and pay the minimum until you get back on track. As a last resort, you might be able to borrow against it, but then you'd still have an additional payment until you get it repaid.


The problem with this is my credit sucks.  I can't consolidate, believe me, I have tried. (I am paying minimums now)  The way my 401K is set up I can't borrow against it, unless I am in extreme hardship, basically loosing my house.  I refuse to let it get that far.  The only other way I would be able to get the money is to terminate my employment.  Hopefully I will have a better job soon and it will be a moot point...I will be able to roll the 401K over to an IRA or something.  There is only $5000 in there right now, anyway, so with my loss of income so far this year, it would put me where I normally sit.  I don't make a whole lot and being a single mom don't pay alot of taxes.

Talking to the credit card companies could help, and chop the things up.  I am a single with one and make very good money, but it hasn't always been this way.  Now I am playing catch up with things like retirement and preparing for old age, so my house is small, cars are used, vacations are few, wardrobe is small, and the credit card(one) stays home. It also helps if you date a mechanic.

Today I am going to check on that insurance policy for my daughter, then I am taking her to the eye doctor.  School starts in a week and she needs glasses.  There is a place here where I can get two pair for $69.95 plus and extra $15 for the warranty.  Jumping on that.

It makes me sad to think that these issues are causing you so much worry.  Although Australia is nowhere near perfect you could go to a Public Hospital and get glasses for your daughter for a nominal amount.  When my mother's brother and sisters visit from America they are amazed at the price of our drugs and medical procedures.  My father underwent a medical procedure last year which cost $168 and my aunt in America has just had the exact same test which cost $750!

That's a great deal (America's Best?) It's OUTRAGEOUS what they charge for glasses these days. Luckily, hubby has insurance or our oldest's would've cost us almost $300 :o



Yeah, America's Best is a great place.  It cost me $78 and that includes the lenses and coating.  The frames I wanted to get her would have been $200 or so..they are the ones that bend.  Makes them hard to break.  I guess we will stick with two pairs in case one breaks.  I will be able to pick them up Friday.

I applied at Debtfreechristian.org to help with my bill situation.  I can't get the cc companies to drop my interest but companies like that can...and they can deal with them companies.  I know it doesn't look good on my credit, but I am paying the bills and it looks better than a bankruptcy.  My credit isn't a big deal right now, anyway.  I am planning on saving for a new car...no more car payments.  I like not having a car payment.

I am with you on that one.  I could never understand working for a car, because that is what you do when you are making car payments every month.  It is good if you know someone who is a good mechanic, and do some research to find a dependable car.  Like I said in another thread, I have a 75 Plymouth with very low mileage.  That is the way I prefer to go. Solid, used, dependable, Low maintenance.  Of course if I hit the lottery I would go for the Cadillac, but I don't see that happening to soon,  :o wait,  :o :o  I feel some vibes..., gotta go... gotta play a number.

We had a great time!  I don't skate, so I took video of the kids' first adventure on ice.  My 8-year-old daughter took to it well and was out there the whole time.  My son, who is much younger, tried it a few times (with his daddy by his side) but then gave up.  I'm sure both the kids will be good skaters after a few more trips to the rink!  :)

That's great. :) Like I said, I've never been ice skating, but I have been roller skating.
I was 8 2/3 when I first went roller skating. The date was March 21, 1989. A kid in my third grade class had invited me to his birthday party at the "Skateland" and I was inexperienced at roller skating. So one of my friends (who happened to be there as well) showed me how. So I became progressively better, and four months later, I had my birthday celebration there. In December of that same year, my mom had a roller skating accident; she fell down and someone accidentally skated over her (ouch! :o) and permanently dislocated the bone in her right wrist. (I didn't see it happen, but she explained it in the car on the way home.)

I haven't been roller skating the day after Christmas in 1996 (I was 16 at the time), so if I should go again, I'll probably forget!

i was in winnipeg(canada) a couple of years ago to visit friends..while we were having drinks before we headed out to party,i mentioned that it would be so much fun to go rollerskating again since i hadn't gone in years and most rinks have closed..my friend opened the phonebook,made a call and the next day my dream came true  ;)
the funniest part was telling my friends that i thought my skates were broken as i stood on the carpet forgetting how to move my feet..my friends reassured me that if i could move them at all,they weren't broken,i was just timid.after the first twenty minutes,i was back in my groove!

Went to a first birthday party for Carlos' granddaughter. She was so alert and was right there enjoying the spotlight. It was also a baby shower for Carlos' eldest daughter. It was a lot of fun. When we got there, I got drafted into playing a couple of games of "go fish" with a 6 year old attendee. (I did win one game.  :)) We drove up in the pouring rain but on the way home, it looked like the Sun was trying to make its appearence.


Tomorrow we head out to sea (ok out to "lake") for an extended trip. It is last full week of summer vacation and our calender is FREE! We are bringing the cats with us and who knows when we will be back.

We got back from our boat trip today. It had good points and bad points.

Bad points: We got rained on-AGAIN.
-We had one day when the wind was whipping really hard, the waves were up and we were being tossed around all day-and night.
-We have two sinks. The one in the galley works off of the battery which is great-hands free. But we lost the pump to our water system. So we had to use the one in the head that you have to physically pump.
-It got really cold at night. We do have extra sleeping bags which we finally took out. So, even though this was a bad point one night, the next night it didn't matter because with those extra sleeping bags, we were nice and toasty.
-And the worse part of the trip-today, after we put the boat on the mooring and was rowing to shore in the dinghy, I got stung by a bee-TWICE in the arm. It still hurts.
-Well, not really too sure if the bee stings were the worse-what may be worse was listening to NPR on the radio and they played Bill Shatner "singing" (I don't think you can call that singing) Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. AGGGGGGHHHHHH!!!!!!

Good points:
-We did have one nice day of sailing. The wind was steady but not too much.
-The cats seem to take it all in strive. They seemed ok-even when the boat was rolling and pitching constinately.
-Last night's fishing was GREAT. Got a lot of white perch.
-Just being out there.

He goes back on Thursday. He is in special education because he has PDD(pervasive development delay) which causes him to have a hard time having a conversation, but he does well with the help he gets.  I'm a bit worried because this is the year when we may see a bit of a rise in kids who will make fun of him, but he has a few of the boys who look after him, they are impressed at his skill on the game boy, so hopefully it won't be too bad.

Don't worry about your son, Danoota.  It sounds like he will be fine.  It is a good thing he as boys who will look out for him...that will rub off on the other kids, I'm sure.

Church then home.

I did get good news today.  There is a chance I could be a full time member of the Children's Ministry.  It is a paid position.  I am going to go talk to the head of the ministry and the Pastor tomorrow.  I would love to work full time at the church.  If it is what God wants for me I will do it.

Well, by my calculations, today is Monday, and I've only got one more week of summer left. It sounds like I'm not going to be able to write the best music album ever in just one week's time, and finding the time to do it otherwise sounds impossible.

But who knows, if things work just right, the dice may land in the right place and.. who knows.

One hour later, or thereabouts, and I'm more certain of today's plan. Having had the strangest day in memory yesterday (my memory only spans one day at the very most), I'm going to visit a certain friend of mine and do what I do best. Make an a*s of myself dab in front of the person I love most.

And then there's tomorrow which will be a bit P-Q-leah, but I'll get to that nearer the time.

I'm not too sure how I feel about it because I really love the time I have alone when he is at work. I guess I will have to come up with a "honeydo" list-"Honey, do this, honey do that"  :D  ;)

Taking early retirement is cool (I wish I could do that  ;D). I know how you feel about your private time. Since I have been with my girlfriend, I have valued my private time with a passion.

Ok, now listen, I'm older and have been around. Find that man a job!  It seems that the one thing I hear from women is that having a guy around the house all day is a killer of relationships. Perhaps he has always wanted to write a book, or do volunteer work, or whatever.  Or maybe it is time for you to get out and return to what it is you want to do, and have him be the stay at home. Whatever it is, do it. People plan their careers, it is just as important to plan their retirements.  This is all tongue in cheek/serious. that being said, we are all here for you, the "my husband retired and is home all day please help" Club :o ;D ;D ;D

I'm glad that you're finding a bit of time for yourself, Cheer.  My husband is trying to convince me to go back to school, especially since he is now working for the University here (which means I would get a tuition waiver).  I'm so used to being home all the time for my kids, but if I can be sure that it wouldn't be a problem for my father-in-law to watch my son for a few hours each week, I might just enroll.  Perhaps in the Spring...I really need to think about it some more.  :)

Well, today, the first thing I'm going to do is weigh up the pros and cons of each pronunciation of the word 'oregano'.

Then when the real world starts, I'm going to be a good boy and visit my girlfriend when she least expects it. Eight o clock in the morning. Unless I'm not finished with the 'oregano' problem, in which case I'll ask 'er kindly to hold 'er 'orses and wait slightly longer in the event that I'm not going to be ready to trip out at that time.

o-RE-ga-no? O-re-ga-no?

I'm still up a plasma tree with this one. But worry not. I'll decide eventually.

And then, at five o clock in the afternoon, maybe I'll get back from there, eat some food and dream of the future.

Thankyou, as ever, for your eloquent relief. What's hardest to cope with is that I'm sure something could have been done. But I'm better today than I was yesterday. I still don't think I'm going to get over it easily, though.

Thank you too, Bobby. Stuff happens, but stuff sucks. I don't know any other way of putting it.

Why would she do it? I guess she was looking for the shock she would (and has) given me, and the relief of being where I get the impression she wanted to be.

I don't know. I'm still struggling to understand what went on, and trying to sort through all the memories and everything she's helped me with over the last four months or so.

Part of what I'm trying to deal with is the trauma of it. Last night I totally flipped out in terms of what I was thinking, about simply never being able to contact her again, never seeing her again, never hearing her again. I know what she wanted was to be happy, but I didn't know truly how this could have been.

I'm trying to remain philosophical about it, but I'm struggling to find words to explain how I feel, and feel it at the same time, without totally driving myself mental.

As well as catching up on my normal stuff I've been helping pack stuff in another building here at work.  Almost everything needs to be put into storage or moved to a new location.  The building is about to be gutted and have all the asbestos removed.  Originally they were supposed to start work in late June/early July but they are starting next week.  The students arrive 3 weeks later!  So I'm going to be sharing my office and work area with another technician and trying to teach 120 students in a lab space for about 30!  should be lots of fun.

As I first forecast, today's was a McDonalds breakfast, as my girlfriend woke me back up at around 8:25 to head out for a trip. As neither of us are compos mentis at that time in the morning, we phoned for a cab and had it drop us off at a local swimming gala, surrounded by the most beautiful parkland in the world (and, at that time in the morning, no toddlers on pushbikes to try and get one over me, as they so often do).

Being the easily drownable type, I figured it just as well to bring with me a regulation soccer ball and chocolate biscuit or five, instead of swimming accoutrement.

After taking a walk or two down the path, kicking the ball up and down the width of the pavement as necessary, we headed into town, and I got a few stern looks from close friends who happened to notice me, even at that time of the morning. We headed to a coffee bar for a bite to eat, and of course the coffee to go with it.

But as anyone who knows me knows, me and coffee are a dangerous cocktail and as such, I can prove to be dangerous for the rest of the day. So, cradled in each others arms, I decided to sleep it off the only way I knew how. By sleeping.

Good times I've had today, and I hope tomorrow is also so good that I remember so much of it.

Today I went and bought a new tail light assembly to replace the one broken Tuesday.  I went to a Ford dealership parts warehouse and they charged me $56.  Checker wanted to charge me $193 and told me I had to buy two.  Can you guess which parts store I won't be going back to?

Today I worked, then stopped at the Vet on the way home to buy the pooch some Frontline for her flea problem. Actually, OUR flea problem. Her scratching is driving everyone nuts! Then home for about an hour, then back out again to stop by the store to pick up a few items needed at home, then dropped off the teen at her youth group. Now, I'm home for a few until I have to go back out and pick her up. I'm tired today, just want to go to sleep, get up tomorrow and do it all over again!!  ;)

Today is allegedly Friday. That means that next Monday, I start college. I'm filled with a mix of anticipation, trepidation, and vanilla ice cream. Later on today, I think my girlfriend wants to go home. I don't want her to, though. I may well go with her, if she decides to. The fact that she's made this house her own home (in more ways than one) is not something that I want to contravene if and when she leaves.

So I think today's just gonna be really cool. If I can persuade her to stay, anyway..

Do you mean go home with her as opposed to going to college? "cause if that is it go to college.
Believe me, been there, and college is so cool, a big difference from school as you knew it and
the people and the life and the things you see and do, I'm all giddy just thinking about it. Both you

Sorry for the confusion. I have to say it did sound rather ambiguous at the time, but then, my ambiguity is the best thing about me. And my scary shirt.

Sorry to hear that Fuss.  It's hard enough nursing aging family but the dementia just adds to it.  My aunty was very ill for a long time and my uncle struggled to cope.

Yesterday I went orienteering with the family.  I aimed to finish my course in under an hour and took 59 minutes 59 seconds!  I was about 8th overall.  I really must start doing some more training now the navigating skills are coming back.

Today I'm in work and I expect to be doing more furniture shifting whilst we completely clear a building for renovation.  I've also gots loads of data entry to do but I keep putting it off because its boring.

I've fancied trying double dutch skipping but have never tried it.  When it was popular here in the 80s a friend and I fancied having a go but we could never get her sisters to turn one skipping rope properly, never mind two so we never tried it.

Today I got up at 8:30 which is really early for me, went into Hailsham* town (I'm staying here at my mums while I look for a flat in worthing with my boyfriend) and brought new batteries and put some credit on my phone, then I came back home and sat around talking to people on msn before putting the washing out and doing the washing up, then I went offline after looking for jobs played on my gamecube for a bit and now I'm back because I'm bored....I'm also feeling a little sad at the moment because My boyfriend is all the way in Worthing and I'm stuck here on my own while everyone is at work or school, and I have nobody to talk to :(
But I'm a bit happier because Me and Chris have made arrangements to meet up in town on sunday and then we'll go and stay at his parents til monday when he's gonna come stay here til wednesday night so i'll have a bit of company in this otherwise boring (in a so boring washing up and laundry becomes appealing kind of way) town. I'm happy though because even though I don't post that much anymore (apologies I can't get online much at the moment) I like to read whats going on in all your lives and it always cheers me up to know that distance doesn't mean that you can't feel close to people and thats part of the reason I think me and chris are still together even though we're miles apart at the moment. So Thank You All for cheering me up when I was feeling all down.  :)
Now I'll probably sit around here for a bit til mum gets back and we go and get my youngest brother from school and then I'll probably sit around and watch stupid kids tv with him and eat food and maybe play more computer games...lalala lifes so not thrilling at the moment :P

Love and hugs Kay xxxx

*Hailsham is a small town just outside of eastbourne for those of you who don't know!!  ;) :)

I ended up going to my mom's house to borrow a ladder so I could shut down my swamp cooler.  It was rather funny when I called her.  She said "hire it done, I'll pay".  I told her a friend was helping me and I wouldn't actually be on the roof and she changed her mind.  I think she was mainly worried that her klutzy daughter would be dumb enough to try to climb on the roof. ;D

Usually I sing the same stuff I listen to. The place we go to has Ultravox, Midge Ure, Depeche Mode, The Smiths and lots of other good 80's artists, so I sing whatever songs they've got of theirs. I'm the resident "80's girl." :)

I actually had a tough time with "Endless Love" because the man I was singing with strolled over to my booth and was staring at me while singing his part.  It made me feel a bit uncomfortable (especially with hubby sitting right beside me) and I ended up missing a part that was supposed to be mine.  People still applauded though!  :D

You didn't go on stage? Or was there a stage to go on to? I've always gone on stage. The only thing I find intimidating about it is how high the stage is. Rush and I used to go to this one place where the stage was so high that, because of my enormous fear of heights, it took me several weeks to get used to. I was shaking the first few times!!!

I can sing just about anything...even country. I used to sing some Shania Twain songs once upon a time, but I didn't want to gain a reputation as a country fan, because I'm not!! I can't sing heavy metal though (not that I'd want to) and I sound terrible singing punk. I have enough power in my voice through loads of practice to handle stuff like Ultravox, but I've had times where I couldn't muster enough of it and it sounded awful. Anyway...I'm sure you could sing "Vienna" if you tried!!! ;D

It was excellent. But we forgot our book for him to sign.  :\'( I did manage to get the college's "photographer" to get a pic of Carlos and him together. He seemed very nice and very insightful.

The funny thing before he spoke, a collegue of Carlos' introduced him but did mention Carlos' letters to the editor. (He did get some applause). He also mentioned that Howard Dean will be there next week and we can all come to hear him "scream". lol

Dean came here to campaign for his cousin who is running for County Mayor.  I didn't go hear him speak, but he did an interview on a local radio station.  It was interesting.  He seems like a smart man...he didn't do the scream, though. **pouts**

(I was voting for his cousin anyway...his opponent thinks she is above the law and needs to go down)

To my surprise, the woman in the other car was very calm about it.  On the other hand I could hardly write my name and address as I was shaking  :-\\  Total impact speed was about one MPH, I should hope they were ok !  ;D

Damage was done, to HER car, see below for details !  No enough to call the fuzz, no  :)


Has your daughter got over the trauma yet?  ;)


Yes, she is by now old enough to have wisely chosen not to have made a big deal of it.  Clever Girl  ;)


Fuss, you got her more, right? ;)  Sorry to hear about your little fender bender :(


Ummm, yessss.....  She had backed out behind me, from a different position, 2 up from me.  She had reversed 'further' than normal, because she wanted to turn out of an adjacent exit.

I on the other hand, had looked the other way, and seen nothing, and started backing up.  I remember changing from the over the shoulder view to the rear vision mirror and seeing her there.

I remember that just as I hit the brake, the cars hit.  Bummer, split second too late.

Thing is, I have a towball on my car.  Her rear door and rear wheel guard were no match for my towball's incredible 1 MPH inertia  :o :D :-[ :-[ :-[ :-[

The funny thing is the next couple of days it should be warm enough to use the cooler, but it will cool down this week, so no biggie.  We had a couple of days last week where it only got to 55 for the high...I almost had to turn on the heater.  Not going to, though, until it gets a tune up.  Don't want to die of carbon monoxide poisoning this year.

You were very lucky Mark.  A friend and his brother died from carbon monoxide poisoning after a condemned boiler was reconnected by their landlord.  The landlord's defence was that they had asked him to do it.  ::)

It resulted in a change in the law here in Britain, that rented accomodation must have annual gas safety inspections and tenants have the right to see an up-to-date certificate.

Today I'm doing some more cleanup around my house. Yesterday we cleaned out our garage some more and made things look neater; in one really big box we found tax returns and other stuff dating back to the 1980s; we've shredded quite a few of those papers, but there's lots more to go. So I spent last evening doing some shredding, and did some more today. Also, in the garage, I helped my dad assemble a shelving unit and made sure that we didn't make any mistakes. I'm good at making sure we follow directions according to the visual aids in each step.

I've just done the usual sort stuff at work today.  Now I'm going to fetch my two children and sort out dinner.  My husband won't be back till later tonight so it's up to me.  He's spent the day in France with a work meeting.

I was supposed to be meeting a new Cub Scout leader tonight and introducing him to a group but unfortunately he can't make it this week.  I'm going to nip down to the group anyway to let them know that.

Actually I miscalculated the fact that I was doing nothing. I won my first game of 14-letter-Scrabble inside college grounds today (a highly dangerous activity), and, amongst other things, got away with the unacceptable (but perfectly plausible enough to be in the dictionary) "thelarche" (thus scoring myself 60 bonus points for using eight of my letters..)

That's a sneaky move that's going to be in my repository from now on, anyhow. (wink)

Sometime ago I read that it actually puts the flu virus in your system and somehow is supposed to keep you from getting the flu ??? not sure if thats correct, but I have noticed at work that a lot of people who get flu shots end up sick and others who don't get it (such as myself) don't get sick.

Hope you get to feeling better soon Jessics ;)

For those of you who are not preggers (and over the age of 21) and have the flu, have you tried a hot tottie yet? I make these when I am feeling under the weather and they seem to help.

I make a hot cup of tea and add a tablespoon of lemon juice, a tablespoon of honey and an ounce of Jack Daniels (or your favorite other comforting medicinal type liquid ;D ) . Then drink. The combined ingredients and the warm drink will help break up what ales ya warm yer insides as well.

Yeah it puts like a really weak strain in to your system like a strain that is almost dead anyhow, thus allowing your body to recognise it and sort out the anti bodies that it needs to kill it. So in theory if you catch the flu your body has all the right stuff to deal with it, but some people just re-act badly.

I know a bit off topic but since some people are feeling under the weather, I thought that I would mention my "cold cure". I usually get a bottle of brandy and take shots all night and get totally drunk and go to sleep. I usually feel better in the morning. (I wouldn't recommend this for Jessica right now though). Or you can put some ginger slices in brandy and let it sit for at least two weeks. (This definately needs to be prepared before the cold/flu season). You can sip the brandy or eat the ginger slices (which will help with a sore throat).

But, if you are running a fever, put onion slices on your feet. I know that sounds really strange but keep them there will socks. The onion takes the fever out of the body. I have also heard that just keeping an onion in the same room also helps.

Yes, I have been studying homepathic remedies. I'm not an expert by far but these are some idea. Besides the first one about getting drunk (that one I didn't read, something I did on my own), the others really can't hurt.

I hope everyone is feeling better. If anyone is interested in other homepathic remedies, PM me and I will see what I can do.



Ok, back to topic.  :)

The first ones a nice suggestion but anyone with young kids will probably agree that it's not feasible.  It's hard enough functioning the next day when I've been up in the night to sort one of the little buggers darlings out.  The thought of getting up in the night slightly drunk and then in the morning having a hangover does not bear thinking about!

I hadn't heard the onion one.  My feet are smelly enough at times so perhaps I won't try it.

Today ?

Sat through what I thought was an earthquake (scared the daylights out of me) (and the cat !  :D) only to find out later it was a sonic boom from an Air Force F1-11  :o

Refer : http://www.abc.net.au/news/newsitems/200410/s1218919.htm

A sonic boom has shaken coastal areas of south-east Queensland sparking fears of an earthquake.

The ABC switchboard has been flooded with calls from people in the Brisbane area who have felt walls shake and seen windows rattle.

The tremor was felt at Clontarf, on Brisbane's bayside and on Stradbroke and Bribie Islands, and at Deception Bay and Redlands.

Patrick Leahy FussBudget ;D from north of Brisbane says you could not miss it.

"I felt a very sharp sudden shaking of the house windows and doors rattling quite viciously," he said.

Paul Lineham from Defence Public Affairs says an F-111 being tested off-shore created a sonic boom.

"Now normally people on the coast won't hear or feel that but sometimes the sound waves can get trapped in a temperature inversion layer which obviously happened in this situation and it broke closer to shore," he said.


Even though it was a false alarm, it was scary enough to imagine what sort of terror the real thing must invoke  :(

The best description I can give is that it was like someone was holding the house and shaking it as quickly as they could

I don't know if they ever closed down, but they did change names for a while. It was called The Chaos Chameleon for a while (and that's when they found a dead body in the wall), and I guess at some point it changed back to Die Maschine. It's not two floors anymore though. There's some club on the main floor that has bands playing there. I forget what it's called but Dayglo Abortions were there recently (remember them?). Die Maschine is upstairs with just the one dance floor and a pool table. 80's Night used to be Thursdays, but now it's 80's and 90's Night. Friday is Dark Wave, Saturday is Industrial.

ACK! The Zoo! I went once with a bunch of people (not necessarily friends but people I was acquainted with who live in the same apartment block), not knowing what sort of bar it was...and there was a KISS tribute band playing there!!!! Not my kind of place at all!! The Toad is cool, though I'm not much of a beer drinker, and as I recall, that's...pretty much all they had. Nice place though. Haven't been to the new one yet.

I painted this week as well, (absolutely hate it, but it had to get done).  Next the bedrooms.
Then turn over the garden, going to start a brand new one next year, different plants, different
arrangement.

We got some more painting done today; pretty soon we're gonna get back to it. :)

A friend is trying to get tenants out of his house, I know what you are going through.  The house is
his moms and after having 50 years of good tenants all of the sudden they are saddled with a
couple of absolute bone heads.  This is the first bad experience they have had and has just about
soured them on renting.
Today I may do some painting(bathroom), and start to think about a better exercise regimen.  I have
been expanding, I feel like a house(with a two car garage) :P

We have a slew of "tenents from hell". Had to evict one, another trashed the place (and THEN called the house inspector AFTER they moved out), etc.  Actually, we really like these people who are there now but they have a problem with paying the rent because of the economic times. We are trying to help them out BUT, enough is enough. This is why we don't want to be landlords anymore and we are going to take over the entire house. We will find use for the entire upstairs apartment.


Today we are celebrating our anniversery. Yup, that's right it was one year ago today.  ;D So, we are going to go out to dinner to the place where we had our reception and probably watch the videos of the best day of my life.  ;D ;D ;D

Beans in your chili depends on where you are from. My wife being from Ohio likes to put those darn kidney beans in her chili, but down here in the South we generally don't use beans. Although I like to add red beans and cheese to my chili. Back when I used to do BBQ and chili cook-offs during the rodeo season it was a SIN :o to put beans in your chili and you would be dis-qualified.

Hey Joe, where is your wife from in Ohio? That's where I live. And yes, my mom always put alot of beans in her chili and she made it way too thin. I like it really thick with lots of shredded cheese and crackers. I guess you could say I like a little chili with my crackers  ;)

My computer still isn't working properly so I can't do any work on it.  Aparently it didn't recognise my profile (or couldn't find it, forget which) and so nothing stored in My Documents is there or anything.  And any work I do might not be recoverable after its sorted.

Yeah, you should call a doctor. That has lasted too long. If it is just a minor thing, it usually goes away (or starts to feel better) after a few days but it has been 5 days. Time to call the doctor.

Buddy, beat O'Haire International for 16 hours.. I kid you not, got in and was expecting a 2 hour wait, so we were informed that due to bad weather in the St. Louis area we would be waiting another 2 hours, ok i can deal with that. So after 5 hours, don't as where that extra one went, we were informed that it would take an hour to sort out our plane. Ok.. OK.. 6 hours  :( im gettin annoyed now... anyway, about an hour and a half later the plane we were supposed to be getting, not only broke down but one of the engines burst in to flames, needless to say this scared me a bit, especially because it was the first time i had gone trans-atlantic on my own (i had arrived at O'Haire from heathrow). Anyway after nearly 10 hours we were told another plane was coming along, but it needed to refuel... grrrr then we were informed that something had gone wrong there and that the fuel tank or fuel coupling or whatever the hell it is called had caught fire and they would need to repair it. Right so finally after 15 hours, we were told the plane was ok.. (well this is a worry cus that plane had caught fire earlier but by now i didn't care) anyway after 15 and a half hours we were on the plane and some time later we were finally in the air. I could have caught the train or rented a car or something.. hell i could have gone greyhound.. but I paid $100 for my plane ticket, damned if i'm getting stiffed out of it  ;)

O'Hare is the WORSE!!! If I ever fly again I will make sure that the connecting flight is NOT through O'Hare. It never fails, you plane comes in one end of the terminal and your connecting flight is on the other end. You need to take a shuttle plane just to get from one terminal to the other. I was stuck there one time when my connecting flight was cancelled and what a mess that was. There was a long line (about 2 hours) to get your luggage-but that was only to say that you wanted your luggage-then it when you told them that you wanted it, it took another couple of hours to GET IT! I decided that I could live without my luggage for one night. (But, it actually got to my destination before I did). NEVER, NEVER again will I EVER fly through O'Hare!!

The party was great (as always). We didn't find a pumpkin but our host had extra so I carved one of those-my usual cat. We didn't really eat dinner per say but we basically nibbled all day -and now I am full. The pumpkins turns out great as usual. One person did a carving of Johnny Cash which turned out cool. I did take pics-have to wait until they are developed (yes, it is on film-not digital) before I can post them.

We left early because we both were kind of tired (the rain started to come down just as we were leaving). We felt bad leaving so early but we were also cold. On the way home, this skunk jumped out in from of the car. Carlos had to stop the car and the skunk just stood there. He hooked the horn and the skunk just stood there. FINALLY he left the road. It was a big one, too.

But, it was a great party as usual.

Tea tree oil shampoo works well as a general preventative.  The lice can't stand it apparently.

When mine have lice I use a ton of conditioner to get the hair really slippery and then comb out and squish the little buggers.  Then do the same a couple of days later and a few days later again to really get them all.

are never more than 4 or 5 people drifting in and out in the early hours.  Today I had to stand in line and there were at least 75. :o

We both went to an Arts & Crafts fair and I was the gentleman to offer her a jewelry gift but she said "no,not athe moment". :(


Oh. That's a shame. Maybe she is not ready for that kind of gift at the moment.

Put some new door signs up at work.  The boss reckons they're all on crooked - even the ones I measured.

Wrapped our thermal manikin up in cling film and then restitched him into his top.  I sewed it up yesterday but then someone cut the bottom part off and the stitches undid!  >:(

This is our manikin

That stuff always happens to me, people I never met before start talking about all sorts of wierd stuff.  Some
one once told me I just had one of those faces people could talk to.  I'm not sure what he meant, but I guess
he is right, and actually I usually like it.  Gives me perspective. :)

Just got back from voting!

So, here's a head scratcher. My husband and I vote in different precincts, but both in Snohomish County. Oddly enough, I voted via touch-screen and he had a paper ballot. It makes me wonder how the percentages work out in our state regarding computer vs. traditional poll sites.

Stopped and rented a few vids on the way back home so we can watch something entertaining on our day off. I'm sure we'll switch to the news at around 10 or 11pm and see how it all turns out. Whatever the outcome, I just hope it's a quick process. 2000 was sheer torture, wasn't it? BTW, just saw footage on CNN of P. Diddy voting, so I guess he's not going to die?  ;)

What is wrong with your ears, Alchoholica?

Yes car insurance is dead expensive apparently (I don't own a car personally). What type of car do you own?

Well now.. Iv'e had a bit of pain in them recently.. not much but enough for it to be uncomfortable, like a dull constant earache. I know why, it's because i do a lot.. A LOT of swimming and i get water trapped in my ears. Basically i am going to ask the doctor if he can syringe my ears so the water dosent get trapped. I havent had them syringed before so there will be a lot of wax in there trapping the water. The other reason i am going is that i sometimes get a real sharp noise in them, but i imagine getting rid of all the crap in there will also sort that out.

I am getting a 1.8 Litre Puegot 206, that's why it is a bit Expensive.
Car Insurance falls under different bands. To actually insure even a relativley powerfull car is cheap, however the total figure is multiplied depending on things like how old you are, if you are male or female, where you live, where you keep your car, how many miles you do, what you use the car for and a number of other things.
So being a young male it is pretty expensive, however, because we don't live in a bad area, it is a very common car, it would be kept in a garage and i would be doing less than 10,000 miles a year (maybe) then it might not be totally crazy. I think i can get it for about 850-900 which isn't too bad.

Ah I get you. I get it very occassionally. I haven't had my ears syringed either - I think I ought to.

At least it will help you once you start swimming again.

Umm. I don't think that was us. The boat has been out of the water for weeks now.  ;)

But, we had a hell of a time getting that tarp up-the wind was whippin'. At one point it came on really strong-I wouldn't be a bit surprised if that gust was a hurricane force gust-NO JOKE-it was that strong.

Tea tree oil shampoo works well as a general preventative. The lice can't stand it apparently.

When mine have lice I use a ton of conditioner to get the hair really slippery and then comb out and squish the little buggers. Then do the same a couple of days later and a few days later again to really get them all.


Sorry I didn't get back to this.  Haven't had time to go online lately, been busy at work.  I have a friend who told me about the tea tree oil shampoo, too.  I am going to pick some up.  The conditioner thing is funny, too.  My daughter washed her hair Wednesday and she used tons of conditioner.  I haven't seen any eggs or bugs since.

What really made me mad was that I called the school Monday to let them know.  They said they would check the other kids.  It has been a full week and no check.  I guess it isn't much of a priority to them.  Tea tree oil shampoo will be a constant in my house from now on.
