Friday Confessional


Hey, how's it going?  It's been a week, that is for sure.  I'm ready to be done with it all right about now.  Whew!  Let's just dive in here:

  •  I was sick last week.
  • Okay, let me rephrase that.
  • I have had horrible morning sickness
  • you know, on account of the baby.
  • But then I caught a nasty little stomach bug.
  • Which made me even more sick.
  • And by even more sick I mean it was kinda like that scene from The Exorcist around here.
  • And I'm not talking when she turns her head all the way around.
  • Yeah, you know the one.
  • Ahem.
  • But seriously.
  • I was out for like three days.
  • Why is this important you ask?
  • I am so so far behind my Christmas schedule I seriously fear I won't get everything done in time.
  • That is a terrifying thought for me!
  • Every year it's the same old story
  • "I know, let's save some cash.
  • I'll be my cleaver, crafty self make make a bunch of presents"
  • Well this year my thriftyness has come up and bitten me in the arse.
  • No really, there's like 9 more days, people.
  • 9 days.
  • Thats all.
  • Game over.
  • Oh I suck at life sometimes.
  • At least we've got all the shopping done
  • well, except for stockings.
  • But that's Santa's job anyway, right folks?
  • Right?!  (wink wink)
  • Anyway boo for me losing 3 days back there.
  • I could have sure used them.
  • And another thing.
  • I don't mean to brag, 
  • But I am almost positive I have the best friends on the planet.
  • I'm talking the best.
  • They keep me sane in all the craziness
  • and support me in all my endeavors
  • and just make me laugh and smile.
  • So thanks, friends.  I love ya.
  • And I want to get you all something pretty for Christmas.
  • It might be a tad late by the time I finish, but hey, it's the thought that counts, right?!
  • Right.
  • 9 days, folks.
  • Heaven help me.

Blast From the Past: MySpace Blog from 3/5/2008

I deleted my MySpace account awhile ago, but before I did I copied my blog posts from it. I mean, they must have meant something to me at some time or I wouldn't have posted them. I decided to post them here on my real life blog just to have the memory of a happier, well a different time anyway. La la la, I know. Feel free to pass on these if you like, they're more for my sake than for yours. And I'm pretty sure I thought I was hilarious then too.  Yeah, sorry.

I love my life. I am so proud of the person I am, and for all the obstacles in my life that I have had to overcome to make me who I am today. I am honest and true and loyal and wiser for the ware, that's for sure.

I had a friend once, loved her to death. We were very close and I was so glad to have her in my life. She was like my only friend in town, someone I saw everyday. I mean, we were tight. Then she did something I didn't agree with and I let the offended party know about it. I was standing up for what I knew was right, and yet my friendship with this girl was over. She hated me and turned a lot of other people against me for doing something I thought was right. I miss her.

The pain and anguish I went through because of that I will never forget. I hated myself and then her and then I was mad and hurt and sad and it took me a LONG time to get over it. A long time.

I now find myself in the same awkward situation, the variables are different, but the same kind of situation. I know something she did, I think it was very, very wrong and could hurt a lot of people, including myself. I, however, will not be the one to let the offended party know. No, not this time. I still find myself at a loss. What do I do? Do I ignore the wrongdoing and still be the friend? Do I end the friendship completely? I have no idea what to to and I hate being in this spot.

Have you ever known someone where when they talk you need to be listening but as soon as you say something about yourself it's like talking to the wall? You are completely ignored or the subject is changed? Yeah, I don't like friends like that. I have come to realize that I have had a lot of people like that in my life and I am so sick of it.

I think it's time for me to just detoxify my life. I am sick of selfish friends. I am a giving, caring person and am afraid I always will be. However, I am going to stop letting people leach onto me and I am going to start being more assertive. Those of you who know me know how hard this can be, but starting now I am going to be different.

I think my biggest problem is that I base my feelings on my friendships. There are so many people out there and it's pointless to be stuck, and this goes for ALL relationships, it's just a waste of time to feel like crap. If the person you're with makes you feel crappy, leave. It's not worth it. I am done. There are too many nice people out there. I have had the oppertunity in the past few weeks to meet some amazing people. Real people, good people and friends and I am so greateful for them. No more wasted time, money, and feelings on stupid, selfish people.

PS this is not a cry for attention or sympathy. Just a little self-discovery.

Blast From the Past: Myspace Blog From 3/12/2008

I deleted my MySpace account awhile ago, but before I did I copied my blog posts from it.  I mean, they must have meant something to me at some time or I wouldn't have posted them.  I  decided to post them here on my real life blog just to have the memory of a happier, well a different time anyway.  La la la, I know.  Feel free to pass on these if you like, they're more for my sake than for yours.  And I'm pretty sure I thought I was hilarious then too.  Yeah, sorry.

1.City you were from?
Auburn, but I wouldn't exactly call that CITY. Should probably claim Afton or even Star Valley.

2. Rocky Mountain Oysters??
What about them? Yes, I know what they are, no I've never eaten one and Yes, I have seen a man get them using his teeth. Any questions?

3. What about the Rez?
What about it? I live on it now practically. I live in good old Riverton, home sweet home.

4. Do you go to Yellowstone or Grand Teton Parks?
I freaking have to drive through Teton Park every time I go see my parents! Damn 55 mph, tourists, and slow moving animals! Not to mention the idiots who stop their vehicles in the middle of the road to look at the sweet little elk or moose or beaver. For real, people, at least pull over to the side! As for Yellowstone, I suppose I take it for granted. I've been there only twice.

5. Boysen Resevoir?
What the! It's practically my backyard! When Thom and I were dating we drove out there one night with a friend and his boyfriend, yes you heard me. Anyway, it was so nice out there, the stars and the lake and...oh, moving on....

6. What do you think about Freudenthal?
Who? The governor right?? I have not been back long enough to care. Ask me about Al Simpson though!

7. Wyoming Highway Patrol?
I used to live next to one, his name was Dave. He was the nicest guy ever. Once we took him bowling and Thom totally ran a red light and he said not to worry because we entered the intersection while the light was yellow. Nice guy.

8. Broncos?

9. Do you hunt or know someone who does?
I don't hunt, everyone else around here does.

10. Have you been over Togwotee, Teton or South Pass?
Yes, in fact, all withn the past month, actually.

11. Can you drive in the snow?
Like a pro

12. Do you think of Mississippi when you hear "Jackson"?
No, why would I do that? (Jackson SUCKS) Sorry, bitter high school feelings never die...

13. Hows your police?
Fine, hows yours?

14. Do you fly out of SLC or DEN more often?
I have never flown out of DIA. SLC for me

15. Quads or Snowmobiles?
What the freak is a quad? Is that like a four-wheeler? because we had both, one for winter, one for summer. Ahh, nothing like the smell of snowmachine fumes on a cold winter morning.

16. Have you ever ridden a horse?
Of course I have! What do I look like, an amateur?!?!

17. What does "Black Ice Advisory" mean to you?
Watch out for idiot drivers who think 4 wheel drive means I can still go 5 over the speed limit, no problem!

18. Have you ever been to Frontier Days?
Have I? Man oh man, what a good time! Thom used to work in Cheyenne at KGWN channel 5 and used to cover Frontier Days. Come on, let's all sing, "It's your station, it's your life. It's Wyoming's channel 5" Wow, that song sucked.

19. Do you regularly incorporate "Git'r Done" into your vocabulary?
Probably more than I should

20. Do you camp?
Yes and I can't wait for this summer, I plan on teaching Izacc all the awesome tricks to play on Daddy. You know, Ice cream tub bear call, honey on the outhouse seat, saran wrap, well, let's just say it's going to be a good time!

21. Support the Cowboys?

22. You've been to the Elk Refuge for feeding?
Yeah, it's kind of a touristy thing to do though. We went when I was in third grade and I drive by both of them on my way home

23. Does the Alpine Slide mean anything to you?
Now THAT'S a good time! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!! But they have those in Utah too..

24. Devil's Tower: cool or just a big hill?
Okay, so one time I almost died there. We were on Jazz Tour with the college and we decided to stop there. It was early March and so there was still a lot of snow on the ground. Bev, Christine, and I were walking around it, following the group...or so we thought. Somehow we wandered off, well, to make a long story short, there was a twisted ankle, no foot prints in the snow, the sun was going down, and man it was scary. And I tell people this story and they say you know, Devil's Tower is round, you should have just kept walking and you would have found your way. Well, you weren't there, you don't know! It's bigger than it looks, okay?!?!?!  Anyway...

25. Do you know what an osprey is?
Yeah but what does that have to do with Wyoming?  Are there a lot of them here or something?  I thought they lived near water?!?!

26. Do you know someone who has rodeoed?
Know someone?  Why yes, yes I do.  PLUS my dad was a rodeo clown for a while.  That's a good story too.

27. Do you own any guns?
Negative.  But Thom has a BB gun!  Look out neighborhood cats!  Thom's on the loose and he's gone loco on account of the BBs!  Really, c'mon.  Oh, and we have paintball guns too.  Now, I'm not going to brag, but you don't know fun until you've painted your dad's white cows pink...

28. Do you know how to fish?
Do I know how?  Yeah.  Do I like to?  Heck no.

29. Do you know where Elk Mountain is?
Do I?!?!  My bestest friend grew up near there...ish...

30. When you order a soft drink what do you ask for- pop, soda, or coke?
Well, I did ask for a pop until I went out of state and found out how retarded I sounded asking for a "pop" now I ask for soda...mostly...
