I haven’t written on here in a looong time. I haven’t had the energy to sit and spill my thoughts. As I sit here, waiting for the clock to reach 6:55, I decided I’d write a little. No sense getting to work on time. Am I right?

The Hartman House is moving. We are in the process of packing still and attempting to weed through the copious quantities of CRAP that invades our house. Christen, Caitlin and I organized the garage to some degree last night and emptied the attic space. You would not believe the weird shit that was up there! I’m serious! OMG! So now we have a pile of junk to go to the dump, a pile to take to Tulsa and a pile to store at my mom’s house. We have already taken 3 loads of stuff to the Salvation Army and have at least one more to take. We have taken 2 loads to my mom’s house, two to Tulsa and one to Cashion. And we STILL have tons of crap! The girls and I took a mallet to an old desk last night. It was marvelous. The front yard looked like an Ikea massacre! Caitlin got hit by shrapnel and had to apply a Band-Aid to her wound! We had a bleeder!! We had Dory loaded down with a load of stuff to take to the new house but the current residents did not return my phone call. So, Dory is going to work with me this morning with a full load. Oh well, could be worse. I rented a U-Haul this weekend too! I’m excited! A 14 footer baby!! We’re gonna load that momma down! The house looks like mass chaos, but I at least feel like we’re getting somewhere. Caitlin and I had a game plan to take down her bed and make her room storage yesterday, but that didn’t happen. Oh steps, people. Baby steps.

I guess I better leave for work now. Blech. I have more to say but no time to say it! So, I’ll write more later. I’ll have to tell you about the wonderful, high inducing allergy medicine I took, the friend I made at Arby’s and my near death experience. You all have a great day and say your prayers to the Saint of Movers for myself and my fellow Hartman House family.

Love, Liz

Currently PlayingSongs Without WordsBy Various ArtistsTheme to Love Storysee related
So today I was introduced to the best blog I have ever seen!! OMG...I don’t even have kids and this site just down right rocked my socks off! I laughed out loud a number of times and I highly recommend you all check it out. This man, has inspired me to further express myself through sarcasm and embrace my inner smart ass. I have always felt I had it in me...but this man...he is The Man. Haha!

I felt the urge to go for a milkshake as I was on my way back to work. *sings, “My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard...”* I called Katie who was working the lunch shift to see how many staff were in the building and then I made a mad dash to Braum’s and bought us all a round of chocolate and chocolate mint milkshakes.
Mmm...heaven with a straw. I walked through the door shouting “Happy Thursday!” and I could instantly see the love and adoration on the faces of my coworkers and boss. Food in general may be the way to a man’s heart, but baby...give a woman chocolate, and a milkshake at that, and you’ll have a friend for LIFE!

And yes, as you may have guessed, I am writing this while I’m at work. I am SO LAZY TODAY! I’m gonna get my sorry ass fired. Good thing I brought the boss a milkshake too. She can’t fire me at least until she forgets I brought her chocolate. No really, yesterday I was all jumpin’ around, cleaning the countertops, ordering supplies and doing records. Not to mention the staff meeting I was finishing preparations for. But today, I don’t want to do ANYTHING.
I just want to sit here and contemplate how much longer until Katie gets back and I get to leave. I have to go petsit all the way in BFE tho...not really looking forward to that, aside from the fact that their paying me, is going to pay my rent this month! That’s always a bright side, am I right?

Well, okay then, I’m off to work now. Fine! I’ll go! Fine! Jerk.

Love, Liz

P.S. The music I'm listening to is the elevator music we have CONSTANTLY playing at work. Blah. I totally did not choose it.

Currently PlayingDrama QueenBy Judith EdelmanJust because I was feelin' the whole drama queen thing there for a minute...momentary lapse. I apologize. ;)see relatedHello all! Today has been a pretty good day! I am working on my healthy summer goal as I told you in an earlier post and so far I am keeping up with it. It is only Wednesday, but you have to start somewhere right? Caitlin and I got back from a walk around Boomer about an hour ago. We went on the three mile trek with Katie, a friend and coworker of mine. I haven't laughed or talked that much in a loooong time! Thanks girls! We had a good time and even chatted with a really handsome fellow with a cute dog! Niiice. Animal lovers are always a plus. Caitlin even offered to trip a roller-blader for me so I could pretend to be a nurse and 'help him'. What a great friend!! I LOVE CAITLIN! It got pretty muggy by the end of the walk, and we were ready to head home and hit the showers. It felt so good to be out tho.One traumatic thing did happen today, however. I was sitting here at my computer during my lunch break and just happened to look over and see 'Balla, one of our fish, FLOATING AT THE TOP OF THE TANK!! He had been that way for a few hours at least seeing as everyone was at work. OMG! I flipped out! He was all filmy and lifeless, floating on his back with his mouth hanging open....ugh! The water had gotten so murky that it had this eery glow about it. I freaked and called Caitlin at work cause she had left the house moments earlier. "Did YOU know Balla was floating in the tank?!" So then I called Matt at work and told him I was freakin' out and utterly disgusted. He too, thought this to be disgusting. We discussed how we were going to get it out seeing as I REFUSED to touch it. Then, I called Christen at work. (Yup, I'm all about harassing people on the job.) I told her what happened and she was like, "Oh was just the fish. I thought you were going to say the dog was dead." haha! Would have been that calm if there was a dead DOG floating in the top of the tank?? Noooo...I think not. ;)I had a staff meeting at work today and it went pretty smoothly with only myself, one other staff member and the doctor present. It was nice! We got good food from Panera and basically breezed throught the meeting. That's my kind of meeting! After that, Katie and I went for dessert. I'm SO BAD!! Some healthy summer huh?? Oh steps, my friend. Baby steps.Well, off I go to get my beauty sleep. Sweet dreams all and I'll see ya on the morrow.Love, Lizzi

The Keys to Your Heart

You are attracted to those who are unbridled, untrammeled, and free.
In love, you feel the most alive when your lover is creative and never lets you feel bored.
You'd like to your lover to think you are stylish and alluring.
You would be forced to break up with someone who was emotional, moody, and difficult to please.
Your ideal relationship is open. Both of you can talk about everything... no secrets.
Your risk of cheating is zero. You care about society and morality. You would never break a commitment.
You think of marriage as something precious. You'll treasure marriage and treat it as sacred.
In this moment, you think of love as something you thirst for. You'll do anything for love, but you won't fall for it easily.

Welp, here I am. Same song, different dance. I kinda feel like I'm in a rut these days. I do pretty much the same thing every day. I get up at the same time, get ready in the same routine and then go to work, taking the same roads. I do the same job I've done for almost 4 years (wonderful as it is!) and then I go home and hang out around my house. The excitement of my days is now going on walks around the lake. We have started our "Healthy Summer Goals" at work and now I have to walk around Boomer 3 times a week, do Pilates 2 times a week and a few other things such as drink more water, eat breakfast, etc. Blech. Healthiness is over rated. However, I have become very good friends with two guys who aren't so good for me. Their names are Ben & Jerry. I mean seriously! Have you guys tried their ice cream 'Dublin Mudslide'? OMG! It can only be found at Albertson's, FYI.
I guess another thing lately that has been breaking up the monotony at my house is the fact that we're moving! I'm so excited! It is going to be an insane Memorial Day weekend tho. I can't even begin to tell you. There are five of us and we have a LOT of stuff. For the most part, I'm packed and I think Caitlin is basically done, but the rest of the house is in complete turmoil. The living room is filled with boxes and then there's a huge pile of stuff for the Salvation Army. This is amazing, seeing as we've already taken 3 truck loads of stuff out of the garage. This new pile is from the bedrooms only! UGH! Christen started packing a little bit of the kitchen last night, but I fear that is going to take us a loooong time.
Speaking of the kitchen, you should have seen the mess I made last night. I made dinner, which honestly, doesn't happen all that often. I made breaded fried chicken, croissants (out of can, ha!) and mashed potatoes. Apparently, I had the oil in the pan just a wee bit too sizzled ALL OVER the place. I'm not kidding. I had to mop the dang kitchen and bleach the countertops. Today's task will be to REWASH the dishes I used because getting them clean was a task and then to clean to disaster on the stove. haha! I did most of it last night, but I had to wait for the dishwasher to stop so I can unload and reload. The things I worry about...haha!
After the meal, which turned out not half bad I might add, Christen and I took Hailey and Oakley for a walk around the lake. (Kick started my goal!) Hailey took a nose dive into the water which had a lovely, gooey, green skim on it. Greeeat. Thankfully she was dry before she got back into my car. Oakley was absolutely terrified of the rollerbladers which I thought was a riot! That dog is not so bright. She jumps the fence all the dadgum time and then comes home, scratching at the front door to be let in. Duh. I can't wait until we have the privacy fence at the new house so she can spend most of her time outside again. I think she gets cabin fever and then everytime I come home she attacks me. Not in a mean way, but in an "OMG! I forgot what you smelled like! Let me attach my nose to your pant leg and jump on you while you try to walk! OH! You took off your shoes! Let me LICK YOUR TOES!" I HATE it when she does that. It gives me the willies and the heeby jeebies all at once. And beware my friends, when you come to visit, she will do the same to you. She gets really excited and has even been known to tinkle on a friend or two. Sue Ann namely. She lived on a farm and her reply to the warm urine running down her leg was, "Oh, it's okay. A little dog urine never hurt anyone. And I've had worse." Um...ew? I don't even want to know what could be worse than DOG pee.
Well, on that lovely note, I'm off to work. I hear Christen up making oatmeal and I'm late for work as usual. Have a great day all!!
Love, Lizzi

I saw on a friends blog this little game where you choose 5 things from the list and complete the sentence. You're then supposed to "tag" someone else who must then do the same. I'm not going to tag you, as I'm lazy, but feel free to participate! Come's all in good fun. I even did the whole list!If I could be a scientist...I would spend all my energy in coming up with a cure for cancer.If I could be a farmer...I wouldn't be. I would much rather be the one sitting on the porch swing on my big wrap around porch. I'd have a good book to read, iced tea to sip and the music of Frank Sinatra playing in the background.If I could be a musician...I would play for myself and friends, but you'd never find me on stage.If I could be a doctor...I would deliver babies.If I could be a painter...I would use every color on the pallette just because.If I could be a gardener ...I would grow all the flowers that smelled good and lots and lots of wild fowers.If I could be a missionary...I wouldn't. I would never think of 'forcing' my beliefs on another. I am happy to share and encourage those who choose that life for themselves, but they need to do just that...choose it.If I could be a chef...I would cook ALL the time! I love to cook, but I don't really have the means nor skill to make it wonderful.If I could be an architect ... I would build beautiful buildings. Not just functional ones. Detail is what makes the ordinary, extraordinary.If I could be a linguist... I'd never shut up.If I could be a psychologist... I would solve the worlds problems one nut at a time.If I could be a librarian... I wouldn't be. I love to read, but I can't handle silence.If I could be an athlete... I would play for the love of the game, not the size of the paycheck.If I could be a lawyer... I'd argue and argue until every rapist, murderer, batterer and adulterer was behind bars, rotting.If I could be an inn-keeper... I wouldn't. Who want's to clean up after other people?If I could be a professor... I'd encourage, stimulate and enhance ideas. I would also let class out early.If I could be a writer... I'd tell stories that make people laugh. If I could be a llama-rider... I would be the shit! Who wouldn't love to ride a llama? If I could be a bonnie pirate...Wait, wait wait. What is this IF crap? I've been told by two people that I AM a pirate!If I could be an astronaut... I'd sit on the moon and warm my face with the stars. I'd look back at Earth and finally realize how truly insignificant we are in the big picture.If I could be a world famous blogger...Oh, but I am...If I could be a justice on any one court in the would the one that I could make the biggest difference.If I could be married to any current famous political figure...I wouldn't be. I don't like liars.

Today is my kind of day! Thunder, lightening and LOTS of rain! I love thunderstorms. The rain has since ceased and the clouds are turning from a brilliant shade of eminence to a softer shade of grayish white. I think the rain was hard enough to wash my car, which makes me happy all the way to the inside. Dory needed a good bath.

I got a newsy email from my ex’s grandma the other day. I love to hear from her, she is a wonderful person. However, I am thankful that she has finally let go of the notion that her grandson and I are going to be together again someday. Well, even if she still thinks it, I’m grateful that she doesn’t express it quite so much. She did however, let me know in full detail how he and his girlfriend are doing. I still care about him. He was my first love. I like knowing that he is well. But saying, “He is well”, would have been sufficient. It makes my heart ache to hear how much life has changed and moved on since I left there. I have come to the painful realization that the world doesn’t ALWAYS revolve around me. Ha! I got an email from two good friends the other day too. I have yet to write you girls back, but I will, I promise! No new excuses, I’m just lazy.

I had allergies somethin’ fierce last night so I took some allergy medicine. I was quite the loopy one! I even took ½ the recommended dose and whew! I was kinda spacey there for awhile, but I felt a LOT better once those babies kicked in. About the time the second pill kicked in, Caitlin told me I was a “Hip Chick”. I took that as a cue to start dancin’ and singing, “It’s a..hip...hop...hip to the hiphop, you don’t stop.” Ooooh yeah, baby. That’s right. I went there.

My friend J was telling me today about the cutesy wutesy details of her new crush/relationship. She was like, "I don't want to tell you, it'll make you sick! It's just so damned CUTE!" I told her to tell me all about it because I live vicariously through her. Yeah, I take it back. NO MORE CUTENESS! It just makes me sad, jealous...and it makes my ovaries hurt. My friend Clint and I promised each other that if we weren’t married by the time we were 28 that we’d marry each other. I should have gotten that in writing. I have a sinking feeling he’d back out. Or marry some random girl to get out of it! Ha-ha! I was actually thinking about that today. What if I never get married? I want kids bad enough I think I’d consider a sperm donor. Seriously. Drew? Wanna donate? We’d have some damn cute, talented kids. We could name them Antonio, Veronica and April!! Whadya think??! Sorry kids, that’s an inside joke, but I’d love to share so just email me! Ha-ha!

Tot, this parts for you. Don’t ever let people make you feel inferior. You’re loved even if you don’t know it. AAAAAAAAAAAHAHAHAHA!!!! Sorry...’nother inside joke. Ha-ha!!
Later peeps!

Currently PlayingStevie Ray Vaughan - Greatest HitsBy Stevie Ray VaughanPride and Joysee related
Today was a beautiful day in the neighborhood! Work was steady. Not too busy, not too slow. Lately, I tend to get a little frustrated with some things, but I know it's just me being moody. I'm trying not to vent at work so much because I don't ever want to be the person people avoid! ha! I am unbelievably blessed to have a job I love, but most importantly to work with a staff I love. It's wonderful when your coworkers are one of your closest group of friends.
Speaking of close friends, my Nay Nay called me today! This is like three days in a row and I feel so special!! Nathan is one of my best friends in the whole world. He was my prom date and probably the best date I've ever had. We had so much fun. He is graduating from the University of Illinois (Go Illini!!) this weekend with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Early Education. He is amazing. Nathan is like the gentle giant. He looks like he could rip your arm off and beat you with the bloody nub, but in all reality, he probably just wants you to chase butterflies with him! haha! He is such a sweet guy and to hear him talk about his kindergarteners, you'd think they were his own kids. I hope my kids get to be in their Uncle Nathan's class someday. That man can always make me laugh, and somehow always seems to make me feel better.
I got home and was LAZY for like...oh I don't know...the first 4 hours!! I am so GLAD that school is done for atleast a little while. I finished up with an A and 3 B's. Yeah, I am pretty dadgum extatic about that. I am taking Intro to Micro Economics over the summer and will roll right back into full time next Fall. Blech. I say that, but in all honesty, I'm so glad to be getting it done. I feel like I am accomplishing something, slowly, but surely.
My dad called me today too. That was pretty neat I guess. I haven't talked to him in almost a month which is much better than we have been. I think he is coming down for our annual family barbeque on the 4th of July. The roomies and I throw one every year and all of our families come into town to spend the weekend together. We go the lake and watch the fireworks too, which is always great fun! I miss my I hope he really shows up. Sadly, I am not allowing myself to get my hopes up as something always tends to come up and ruin his good intentions. This year, he's going to the Indi 500 so I can see the money issue arrising. I'm going to attempt to be positive, but you all know me better than that. ;)
WOW....big wave of happiness just swallowed me whole! Christen is cleaning the bathroom and she found some of the guys cologne. She sprayed it and it wafted into the den...mmm....pure, unadulterated, happiness. I love that smell.
On the line of boys, I have found a fellow Weisheit on His name is Zach! We're not 100% sure we're from the exact family tree, but how cool is it to find someone with a name like WEISHEIT in common. He goes to Indiana State and is only a couple years younger than I. We have been having a good time writing back and forth. Even if it turns out we're not family, I think I have met a good friend in the mix. How funny, huh? Life is so random.
I now have to go work on a presentation for work tomorrow night. I have a staff meeting I'm supposed to lead and I am SO not prepared. Wish me luck!!
G'nite, Liz

If You Want Me To-Ginny Owens
The pathway is broken And the signs are unclear And I dont know the reason why you brought me here But just because You love me the way that You do I will go through the valley If You want me to
Now I'm not who I was When I took my first step And I'm clinging to the promise You're not through with me yet So if all of these trials bring me closer to You I will go through the fire If You want me to
It may not be the way I would have chosen When you lead me through a world that's not my home But You never said it would be easy You only said I'd never go alone
So when the whole world turns against me And I'm all by myself And I can't hear You answer my cries for help I'll remember the suffering Your love put You through And I will go through the valley If You want me to

Currently WatchingHidalgo (Widescreen Edition)see relatedToday was an okay day. It started out grand with me buying myself my fav coffee, a Mocha BigTrain from Aspen. Mmm...tasty! Then, I arrived at work to find that the lovely Shana had brought me BREAKFAST! My hero! The day went well despite the loads of work it felt like kept piling up. More than likely it was merely my imagination. I did get a little tiffed today, however. I found out that TWO friends of mine (in seperate states) were either driving drunk (one got taken to jail) or allowing someone else to drive them while drinking and driving. Am I the only genius who finds this to be fucking retarded behavior??? I mean really. How old are we? Crap. I was so pissed off mostly because they were willing to blatantly put their lives in danger as well as the lives of the friends they had in their vehicles. I'm sorry, but jail is least you should have been worried about. How about not killing your friends or innocent drivers. Damn. I am so disappointed. Seriously.I came home, cleaned the house some and packed A LOT! I took loads of stuff to my mom's place for storage. I'm tired of moving already and we don't even get to officially do it until Memorial Day Weekend. While packing, I decided to clean out some drawers of an old dresser. I came across TONS of old notes from everyone I could ever imagine. Most of them were from my ex boyfriend. "I'm so sorry I hurt you", "I love you so much, please forgive me", I didn't mean to cheat on you, it just happened", "I'm a worthless excuse for a man, please take me back". Blah, blah, blah. It made me so sad to read those...I threw them all away. There were some good things in there too tho. Poems he wrote me, stuff from old friends, pictures I hadn't seen in forever. My friend James obituary was in there along with the story from the Quincy paper about the memorial tree that was planted at school in his memory. He was hit by a car during a band trip...the day before his 18th birthday. (Yet another reason the drunk driving enfuriates me...although the accident was ruled just that, "an accident". No one knows for sure if alcohol was involved.) I found letters from my Grandma and from my Mom. Needless to say, I bawled majority of the afternoon. My roommates are all out of town, so I took the opportunity to wallow freely. I think it was just a huge rush of emotion that I wasn't expecting. I miss Quincy at times, but I can finally call Stillwater home now. Most of all, I miss the people. It's not that I miss my ex really, he was pretty much a waste of oxygen. But the times he wasn't being a loser, he was rather wonderful. I miss being cared about like that. Well, until I found out he was cheating on me and ran off to get married that is. Ha! I sure can pick em. You know, I'm not really sure what it is that I miss...maybe it's just being needed. Who knows...I guess I just needed a good cry. Now I'll go back to being my normal, "I'm fine" self. Tomorrow is Mom's Day, so I'm going to church with mom and then we're going to lunch and shopping for the afternoon. Good times. Let's see if we can go a day without driving each other batty. haha!Here's to a great tomorrow...God Bless, Love, Liz

Currently PlayingHeavier ThingsBy John MayerComfortablesee relatedDAH!I hate my ENGLISH TEACHER!What a royal ass...that man is a pompous, arrogant ass hole who should never be allowed to teach. Blech. He told us on the first day of class that we were his lowest priority and our syllabus clearly states that we are only to contact him if it's REALLY, really important. Jerk. Unless he gives me a zero on the final, which he might since I was mouthy, I will still have an A in that class. You know he's bad if I have an A and STILL think he's a waste of oxygen.FINALS ARE OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY!I, so far, have nothing below a B! Woohoo! Mini wave for me.Well, I'm off to pack cause we're MOVING! YAY!Have a great one all, and congrats on the arrival of SUMMER!Liz

Currently PlayingTal BachmanBy Tal BachmanShe's So Highsee relatedThis has been a looooong day. I had to work which is a daily thing, but today we had to euthanize a patient. It was so sad. A coworker was really torn up about it. It seems we have had a lot of injured and dying patients lately and it has taken a toll on the moral of the staff. I don't think people quite realize that this is a job that deals with life and death on a daily basis. Everyone is like, "OH! Cool, you work at a vet clinic. That would be fun to get paid to play with the animals." Yeah...cause that's all we do. Don't get me wrong. I do get to play with the animals and I love it...but it can still be an emotionally draining job. Didn't help at all that I was in a mood of all moods today. I was irritated with a LOT of people, some of it my fault, but MOSTLY THERE'S! ha!Today was my Caitertot's b-day! All the roomies had dinner at Joe's and we celebrated with a birthday shot. Caitlin's first legal drink! haha! YAY! Funny thing was, she wasn't sure what kind she wanted so I recommended the 'Slippery Nipple'. OKAY!! This is what I was TOLD they were called. So I ask the waitress if I could get some slippery nipples. haha!! YES! I said it just like that. She looked at me like I was a flaming idiot and then gradually got this perplexed somewhat horrified expression. Matt stepped in and was like, "I belive she means 'Buttery Nipples'...the shot. We'd like a round of shots." She laughed and was like, "Ooooh! Heehee!! OKAY!" Yeah...she was bright.We went home, I pretended to study for my exam and then headed off to face the music. I sat there...waited for about 10 minutes while the teacher passed out the exams. I tell you, she is the slowest woman alive. I look at the test and laugh to myself as she says, "You have until 9:50 for this exam, so you know, no rush." It took me all of 10 minutes. The exam started at 8 and I was back in my car at 8:12. Holy crap it was easy. I may have missed a couple, but I am feeling pretty confident about this one. Two down and two to go!!I came home and we stuffed ourselves with 1/2 of the birthday cake. The other half is being saved so we can reinsert the candles and celebrate Matt's b-day on Thursday. We are one interesting family! Off I go, once again to either sleep or pretend to study. Sleep sounds like a fantabulous idea and I think I'm gonna do it. Later friends, Liz

Currently PlayingHeavier ThingsBy John Mayer, John MayerComfortablesee relatedI have sat here for about fifteen minutes trying to think of what to say, and nothing has come to me. Nothing at all. I'm not real sure why...they just won't come. I was fine most of the day. Went to work, did my usual. Left at about lunch time and ran home for a quick bite before my first final exam of the semester. I sat next to Symphony who laughed at me because I had a rumbly in my tumbly the WHOLE DANG TIME! I watched three hoes in my class CHEAT. It made me so mad because I bust my ass in that class. And get this, we're learning about morality and the philosophies of life. How do you cheat in a Philosophy class and not feel atleast the slightest bit someone is watching you? Anywho, they will have to live with themselves I guess. I can only take care of myself and even that sometimes feels like a task and a half. While walking to Symphony's car after class, I saved her life. Yup, that's right. Pure hero shit. We had a "walk" light to cross the street and some bimbo decided she should get to go first so she pulled a Mario Andretti and took the corner on two. Symphony would have become "Here Lies Symphony" had I not grabbed her arm. I think I may have even clawed her arm I grabbed her so hard. She said her life flashed before her eyes, but I think it was just her reflection in the window of the car that nearly ran her down. Who knows. I came home and baked the worlds weirdest birthday cake for my roomies Caitlin and Matt. One layer is Sunset Orange for Matt and the other is Jungle Green for Cait. It is then frosted brilliantly with whipped chocolaty goodness and topped with their initials in cosmic sprinkles. Damn straight. Who's the birthday queen now?After that, my evening kind of went down hill. Not really for any particular reason, it just did. I balanced my check book which is always a blessed event. Blech. I realized I had bounced a check because I didn't get my paycheck in the bank in time. Jerks. Bank nazi's. I went to tell Christen that I didn't want to study and she told me some guy bought a 400 dollar phone from Matt at US Cellular. I mean really...400 on a damn cell phone. What kind of society do we live in? Honestly. Who in the WORLD needs a 400 dollar phone?? I was completely astonished. Do you realize what I would do with $400? I would fix Heautiful the cross eyed cat so she wouldn' t vomit all over the house anymore, I would pay Cait's tuition, I would put a deposit on a new place for my mom to live instead of above the 'Tijuana Cantina' she resides at now, I would...God I don't even know. There are so many things I would love to do with that extra money. Not spend it on stupid shit. Then again, I guess they would probably say my bi-monthly DVD purchase is stupid. To each his own. It just made me so mad. Then of course, I come in here to start studying again and I hear a sappy song that makes me feel lonely. Comfortable by John Mayer. (I'm a wee bit emotional today if you couldn't tell.) I still haven't studied. Instead I went to Wal Mart with Sue Ann where she "serenaded" me with her rendition of Oklahoma! all the way through the store. God love her.So here I sit, pouring my heart out to a computer screen. Why? I have no idea. Nothing better to do at the moment I guess. Today I have felt:nervous, anxious, giddy, shy, embarassed, scared, pissed, shocked, amused, reluctant, pity, relieved, worried, stressed, depressed, irritated, bored, antsy, lonely and hopeful. So on that note, i'm now going to make myself feel...educated. Study time here I come. God Bless...I hope you feel better tomorrow Caitertot!Love, Liz

'Elo good chaps! It has been a day or so since I have written, but I have a good excuse! I have been studying my little heart out ALL week! I have finals this week. UGH.I had a study session with my good friend Symphony tonight. Philosophy. Blech. It was fun tho, surprisingly enough. We always seem to make each other laugh. We went to Aspen Coffee Shop and dosed ourselves with caffeine so of course it couldn't be half bad!! Yesterday we went to this restaurant in town called Crepe Myrtle. OMG! It has THE best burgers in town, by far. Then we forced ourselves to split this dessert called the Velvet Turtle. HOLY CRAP! Katie, you'd love it girl because it's MINT CHOCOLATE CHIP ICE CREAM! Yummy! We promised ourselves we'd get dessert this time and let me tell you, it was worth every, vomit endusing bite! Haha!It was about nine thirtyish and I was driving home. I stopped in at work to see the new paint job. My boss is finally breaking out of her shell!! YEAH! Every wall she has ever known has been white...I finally talked her into some color after almost four years! She went green boys and girls and let me tell you it has made a world of difference! Everything in that office feels cleaner, more modern and cozy. Way to go Dr. C! I helped her put back all the crap we had to move for the painters and what not...the whole time she kept saying, "Liz. I sure hope this grows on me." So far, she's having a very hard time accepting such a drastic color change. haha! I drove home at a little after ten, watched the rain fall ever so softly and listened to Delilah. (Sappy love songs for the eternally single and the rekindled romance.) I am the former. I sang my heart out to "How do I live?" and thanked God for tinted windows and dark time. haha! If anyone saw me singing like that, I'd have hid...forever. haha!! What a sight. Someday, I'll find me a man like this to match my personality. Don't ya think??? One can only dream. *Sigh* A man in uniform. haha!Well, I'm off to get my beauty sleep. Wish me luck on my PHIL final tomorrow!!! G'nite all and cheerio!Love, Liz
