Baby Update

Ricky and I went to the OB/GYN today. We got to see the baby on the ultrasound. We got to see the heartbeat! It was so awesome! I've got another appointment next week for the blood tests and whatnot. We'll also get to print out a picture of the sonogram next week as well. I also found out that I am between 5 & 6 weeks...we're going to find out for sure next week. My new due date is between August 14th, and August 21st.

Renaming Kitty Number Six

Say you have a girl kitty named Abigail, or Abby for short, and it turns out that "she" is really a boy kitty? What do you rename him?

We are throwing around the names Abner (with Abby for short still), Metro (as in metro-sexual because he still looks like a girl kitty), or Bender (as in gender bender). If you have any suggestions, we are open.

If you're wondering how we mistook him for a girl...we were told he was a girl, and we didn't ask questions. Always ask questions. *smiles*

Britney Marie

*Edit* And I was just reminded that we also were throwing around the name Abimale.(Pronounced Abby-Male)

You Learn Something New Everyday

Contrary to what I thought...half a bottle of cooking oil is actually quite easy to clean least in the kitchen. I haven't had the pleasure of cleaning it off of carpet yet...

All I Want This Year Is For You To Dedicate Your Last Breath To Me

In addition to learning that cleaning up spilled oil isn't as hard as I once thought, I also learned something else today. If you take the time to do something nice and special for someone, all they'll do is look to someone else. I'm so sick of playing second fiddle when I'm the only one that seems to care. I'd like to say I give up, but I know I won't...

Y'know Sidney, I think you might have been onto something on the phone yesterday. I'm bound to have a nervous breakdown and either strangle someone, or flip out at a populated social gathering and tell each and every person in the room what I *really* think about them. I just hope you're there when either happens because I'll need you to punch out a few people while I'm yelling at/strangling others.

It's Good to Be The King

Ricky got me the greatest gift for our anniversary. It's an autographed photo of Jerry Orbach!!! It came in today. I keep telling him he screwed himself over because he'll never be able to top that gift ever.

Ok, time to get back to wrapping Christmas gifts.

How'd You Like A Stale Banana Right In The Mouth?!?

It is currently 4:14am and I am watching one of my favorite movies eating the scrambled eggs with cheese I just finished cooking. I've been up all night because I couldn't sleep and I have class in 3 hours and 45 minutes. I think I've looked at the internet more tonight than I have in the past few days!

It could be the sleep deprovation talking, but I make some damn good scrambled eggs with cheese! Admittedly, I should have used my time wiser and perhaps studied, but, eh, what fun is that.

I'm seriously contemplating whether or not I want to get up off my ass and make some more scrambled eggs...but I think I'm just too lazy. I need to train my kitties to make me food. That would be the life...

Mmmm, hot chocolate sounds good too. Ok, time to stop being lazy. Gunna go cook then hang out watching a movie by myself.

Britney Marie

Yeah right, everybody and their brother knows I'm not going anywhere.Where are those kitties...?

Oh, and BTW, our one year wedding anniversary is on Sunday!!! I'm so excited!!!

Haven't You Heard That I'm The New Cancer?

I had SOOO much fun at the P!ATD concert! It was the greatest thing EVER! I had my face melted off by a guitar solo, and people were "throwing the horns!" Yeah yeah, I know, it's not exactly the place to do that, but I thought it was funny that they did it!

Paintball was awesome too! I got the one shot in that I cared about. I shot Matt in the forehead! It's the only shot I got in, but I don't care. I got two big welts on my back, but I didn't bleed this time. We're going to go out again for Ricky's birthday in March.

After paintball we all went to Mulligans to eat dinner and cake. Ricky, Michael, & I stopped by Target to get some party hats, and the waitress even wore one!

Sunday afternoon, Mom, Jim, Ricky & I went to Olive Garden. I went to the bathroom, and when I came back they came out and sang Happy Birthday to me and I got a cake. (Thanks again, Christina! *smiles*)

Well, I just got finished watching my birthday movies...I got Aladdin & the King of Thieves & Return of Jafar and Cars. Gotta wait til Ricky gets home to finish watching Cars though. Ok, time for me to clean my house. We haven't unpacked yet from the trip.

Oh, and we have a new kitty now. Her name is Abby. She hates all the other kitties, and hisses and gets all puffed up when one comes near her, but I think she'll get used to it. She's been hunkered down under our bed all day! LoL! Ok, really going to go clean the house now. Thanks to everyone for the birthday wishes!

I Guess I Was More Tired Than I Thought

I couldn't sleep last night so I stayed up til 1:30am watching Don Knotts movies. I woke up when Ricky got up to get a shower at 3:30am, and after that I was done. I don't remember Ricky leaving, and I certainly didn't hear my alarm go off at 5:30am. I woke up at 9:04, one minute until my Minorities, Crime & Social Policy class! I really hope they didn't take roll today!
I wasn't tired feeling at all last night, and I forced myself to go to bed...shows what happens when I try to do something responsible! LoL!

That's the Beauty of Argument...If You Argue Correctly, You're Never Wrong

Almost finished working on Ricky's second Halloween costume. I just need to dye the hat and the shirt.
Right now Ricky and I are watching "Thank You For Smoking." I really like it so far. Later we're going to watch "Quick Change".
We did some Christmas shopping this afternoon. Did you know that Wal-Mart is getting rid of their layaway program? This is the first year we've used it, and they're getting rid of it. Oh well. I guess I should have used it sooner.

We Have A Love/Hate Relationship...And Right Now I Hate You

Warning: I will be saying "fuck" a lot. You have been sufficiently warned. That is all...

Well, I will never be going to graduate school. My GPA is not high enough, and today I got called lazy by a teacher. Now, how the FUCK is someone who takes 17 credit hours in a 13 week period fucking lazy? Answer me that!!! Granted I had problems with it, it wasn't because of lazyiness, it's because one of my teachers was too busy working on her graduate degree to actually teach us anything, two of my classes were in PC which, I know now, was a bad idea to drive back and forth once a week to go to, and one of my classes changed the date of the fucking final without telling anyone and I had the fucking flu!!! Like I could fucking help that!!! Ugh!!!

So, because I'm only "average" and not "good" I will never be able to further my education. Fuck that! That's is so fucking wrong!!! Just because someone doesn't have a 3.0 average as an undergrad, doesn't mean that they're going to flunk out of graduate school. Give me a fucking chance. People say not to compare yourself to others, but society does it all the fucking time. Because Student A did bad, obviously I'm going to be a fuck-up too...I mean, c'mon!!!

The president of the fucking country was an "average" student, and he's above all you professor-fucks! Now, you try and tell the president of the fucking country that he can't go back to school and get a fucking masters degree...go on and try it! Fuck!!!

Ugh! So my GPA was a 2.something before the summer semester sent it plummetting into the abyss...that doesn't mean that had I taken less classes that it would have. For all you fucks know, I could have gotten all A's had the circumstances surrounding the semester not happened. Then my GPA would be higher. So, because of life situations and incompetent teachers (which you fucks hired, mind you!!!) I have to be penalized for the rest of my fucking life? Because of one fucking semester I can never attain higher education!!! Fuck you, you arrogant fucks!!!

I don't think I should be excluded because of a fucking number. How can one number haunt me so much??? Does my GPA have some real world significance that I have yet to be told about? Can I not get a job anywhere but McDonald's or scrubbing toilets without having a certain GPA? Because, I don't fucking think so!!! Just because I don't stack up to your standards of what you fucks think a "good" student should be, why the fuck should I get left behind?? I am good at what I fucking do. I am. Who the fuck cares if I can bubble in answers on a scan-tron sheet? Who the fuck cares if I can cram information into my brain for hours, just regergitate it on a piece of paper, and then to forget it as soon as I turn in the paper? Who the fuck cares who the father of Criminology is? Does that have anything to do with processing a fucking crime scene or arresting a murderer? No, I don't fucking think so. So, just because I don't do good on your fucking standardized tests, means that I am fucking "average". Well, FUCK YOU! You show me to a crime scene and I can pick out the evidence that I bet you would never have fucking seen!! There have been homework assignments that I have asked questions about, that the teacher has told me they didn't fucking know the answers!! So, what does that say about your fucking standards!!!

Ok, fine. Have it your way, fuckers. I don't want to spend anymore time than I have to with you douche bags anyway. So, after April 27, 2006 I will bid you all farewell forever. You won't be able to fuck me over anymore. I'll get on with my life, and the magic GPA number that you're so fucking attached to can sit in a filing cabinet and gather dust for eternity. So long, fuckers!!!

Britney Marie

No, Not Me! I Can't Believe It Happened To Me...ME!!!

I can't believe I did this yesterday. Without even realizing it, I went to my courts class wearing socks with flip-flops! Ick, yeah I know. On the other hand, they were toe socks, so that makes it least a little bit....right? *shudders*

Shop Smart, Shop S-Mart

I cannot believe it. I have been working on ONE piece of homework for FIVE HOURS!!! It's a piece that I was supposed to do for Forensics last semester (I'm getting a chance to change my grade in the class.). So, I'm trying my best to get the three homework assignments done and the two reflection questions. I've already done Reflection Question 4 & Homework 08...Now I just have Reflection Question 5 and Homework 09 & 10. Ok, gotta get back to work...I just want to get this done and over with.

You're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat

I can't sleep so I'm up watching "Jaws" and trying to figure out what to watch next. Ricky and I have been watching a lot of movies lately. We watched "V For Vendetta" last night, "Final Destination 3", "Silent Hill" and "United 93". I really liked "United 93" but that movie (to me at least) is more depressing than "Schindler's List"! And that's hard to beat! I think it's because I remember 9/11, and was not even thought about during the Holocaust.
Everyone should go out and rent it. (United 93)

Every Little Pat On the Shoulder For Attention Fails to Mention I Still Hate You

I never thought I would get here...but you are reading the blog of a college senior. I swear I never thought I would make it to be a senior in college. This time next year I should be a college graduate. Hello $10,000!!! (I get $10,000 upon graduating FSU) That really is the only thing that has kept my eye on the prize. Lord knows, FSU itself had nothing to do with it. I am so ready to be done with college. I'm going to get my B.A. and attempt my M.A...I want my PhD, but that is going to take some time.
Alrighty, shower time.

I'm Just A Notch In Your Bedpost, But You're Just A Line In A Song

In the past few days, three things have stood out to me. 1) People don't know how to STFU in the movie theaters, 2) Health food is taking over, and 3) Other drivers never cease to amaze me.

Ok, number one (with a bullet). If you're going to go to the movie theater, at least have the common decency to keep you retarded mouth shut! I did not pay my 8 bucks to hear how you feel about the movie, the "hott" actress, or anything else that may be expelled out of your moronic mouth. I paid my cash to see the movie in SILENCE. Now, don't get me wrong, I don't mind if people whisper. There is a difference between whispering to the person next to you, and just out-right talking to everyone. Ok, now. If you are the type of person who happens to talk through movies and no one seems to care, fine. But, the second someone asks you to "please be quiet" then do so. If you don't, I guarantee it will prompt someone to get the overwhelming urge to take their soda and popcorn (yes, the same soda and popcorn they paid 20 bucks and their first born child for) and pour it on top of your head. I GUARANTEE this goes through their whether or not, the person has the capacity to deny themselves that sweet, sweet impusle, is a different story. Lucky for a loudmouth jerk in Panama City, I have control. Sometimes I really wish I didn't.
On to the second thing I've noticed. I was at Wal-Mart this evening purchasing groceries and I was on the macaroni and cheese aisle. Ok, the only mac 'n' cheese I buy is the shapes/spirals ( I think it's because I never got these as a child, just the regular mac 'n' cheese...but I digress). And now you can only get spirals or Scooby Doo because all the other shapes are that crappy "Super Mac 'n' Cheese" Have any of you actually tried that crap? It's awful! The noodles are like whole grain and with the low fat cheese powder (or whatever) it just tastes bland with a bad aftertaste. Later, I was traveling down the snack aisle and was trying to find the Goldfish. The "healthy eaters" have taken over the snack food too!! They didn't have any of the small bags of goldfish in the plain kind, they had some kind of whole grain goldfish! WTF?? This is getting ridiculous. These people who are making all food healthier are denying me my right to get fat. As an American, I have certain rights, and that is one that I want to keep! Health food people, STOP TAKING OVER EVERYTHING!
Third, this one is just amusing. When I was leaving Wal-Mart and driving home, I got stopped at a red light. Ok, there was a car, STOPPED next to me. The light is RED. The left turn arrow turns green. The car next to me (he's not in the turn lane) is still STOPPED because he see's the light for us is still RED. Then, like some cars do, he slowly crept up assuming the light was about to turn green...well it didn't. So, he just went right through the red light like it was a gree light. It didn't turn for another good ten seconds, there's no way he thought it was green! Like I said, people never cease to amaze me with their inability to do a simple task, such as driving.
In other news, I got called "old lady" today. While at Wal-Mart (which I do realize is not exactly where the geniuses of the area congregate...), a little kid (he looked like 5 or 6) passes me and says, "Hey old lady." I thought to myself...I'm only 20, I'm not old! Grrr! Freakin' Kids!

If You're Going Through Hell...You Might Get Out Before The Devil Even Knows You're There

I had the worst fucking day today.

First, I get up late because I have trouble sleeping at night for some reason. I'll sleep two hours, wake up, and be wide awake for hours, then get tired again around four am and go back to bed. Tylenol PM does not help like it used to.

Second, because I get up late there are more people at the college than I anticipated. So, I go up to the fourth floor Financial Aid to recieve the Delayed Delivery Loan (I need a fucking loan so we can get groceries this month because my VA check STILL has not even been processed, but that's another bad day a few weeks ago I declined to mention...but I digress) that I was promised yesterday on the telephone with the only competant person working in the F.A. office. So, I get there, and as soon as I go to get on the elevator, a group of people get on with me...where are they headed? Financial Aid! And who gets off the elevator first? They do! So, now I gotta wait in line behind all these parents who came to visit the campus for their spoiled rotton children. These people did absolutely no research on F.A. before they got there because they were being handed FAFSA forms and having to be explained how to fill them out, when to turn them in, finding out most people already were awarded money for the fall term, and then not comprehending this. Oh, and there were only two people working the counter...the rest of the "staff" was sitting in the back room, looking at the line behind the glass door. Fuckers.

Alright, so I finally get up to the counter, and the trainee that got me had no idea what I was talking about. After a few minutes of explaining to her my phone conversation the day before, she finally looks up my info, sees the note the competant worker wrote, then refers me to her supervisor. She directs me to room 4430. I go back there and there is a sweater on the chair, and a note saying to go to room 4429. Now, the door to 4429 is closed. Normally when an office door is closed, no one is working there. So, I try to find someone and tell them this, and they tell me to go to room 4430...I tell them about the note on the door, again, and the tell me to go to the office across the hall...which would be 4429. Ugh! Luckily, as I was walking by 4429 the door opens, and the lady walks out. I hand her my paperwork and she tells me there are people in line ahead of me. So, now I sit and wait for twenty fucking minutes (I'm already supposed to be on the road to Panama City, mind you!) She gets to me finally and takes FOREVER to print a check. Ok, printing a check is not rocket science! If it were, this lady would be in a whole heap of trouble! I swear, a trained monkey could do a better job than everyone in the F.A. office at FSU!

After all that fun, I get sent downstairs, luckily there is no line. He asks for my FSU card, swipes it, and it doesn't work. The stripe doesn't work on anything. So, he's gotta look up my information, verify it, then FINALLY give me my check!!

By this time it is 11:30am my time. I was going to be in PC by this time, but Nooooo! Ok, so the reason I wanted to be in PC so early was because I was supposed to get a call from friends in Forensics so we could all take our test together. I wanted to be in town so I could meet up with them, and they wouldn't have to wait on me to get into town. Now, because I was getting on the road so late I tried to make up time on the interstate. Aparently that was a big fucking mistake! About 12:15 my time, I get pulled over by a State Trooper for doing 89 in a 70. It's almost a $200 ticket. Now, as mentioned before, money is not being kind to Ricky and I now...and a speeding ticket is probably not the best thing for me to have gotten. Fucking cop!

Alright, so after I politely thank the cop for my ticket (I kid you not, I actually thanked the fucker!) I look in my cupholder, and I see...ANTS! Yes, ants in my car. There were only five of them. I never saw anymore of them. But in my current mental condition because of the aggitation of the day this just added to the pile of shit on me.

I get into town, deposit my check, and still haven't heard from anyone from UCSI. I decided to go ahead to the college to see if maybe they were there. They were. They had already started on the test. So, I came in, sat in the back, did my own test, and left. Dr. Nute saw me, but who fucking cares. I met my mom, went to lunch, then traveled back to Tallahassee.

I thought I actually might have done decent on my test too. Nope. Fucking figures. I got a 68. Class average was a 90. I am so fucking pissed and upset it's no wonder I can't sleep. I can never manage to get anything over a C in anything I do in college. People don't hire people with a C average. People hire people with an A average. People with a C average in college end up asking "would you like fries with that" "may I take your order" or "thank you, come again" for the rest of their lives.

I think Relient K might have been onto something with their song "College Kids"...
"Someone please save us, us college kids, What my parents told me is what I did. They said go to school and be a college kid, But in the end I questioned why I did.
I'm poor, I'm starving, I'm flat broke, I've got no cash to spend. Sell all my books for front row tickets to Dave Matthews Band. My girlfriends at another school I know this year will test her, I called, found out she had 3 other boyfriends last semester.
And thats why I say. Oh no, not for me, not for me. Call it torture, call it university. No, arts and crafts is all I need. I'll take caligraphy and then I'll make a fake degree.
80 grand later I found out that all I had learned, Is that you should show up to take your finals and your midterms. The party scene has gotten me, I think its sick and twisted. The navy showed up at my dorm and claimed that I enlisted.
And thats why I say. Oh no, not for me, not for me. Call it torture, call it university. No, arts and crafts is all I need. I'll take caligraphy and then I'll make a fake degree.
Dont get excited, she'll say "no" without a doubt you see. And I've decided college girls just wont go out with me. They make me nervous, and they always catch me off my guard. Like cell phone service I drop out cause college is too hard
It's time to call my father. 'Cause its his alma mater. Good grades aren't what they seem. I think he knows the dean. It's time to call my father. 'Cause its his alma mater. He said hes proud of me. But college always was his dream. And I would always say its not for me.
And thats why I say. Oh no, not for me, not for me. Call it torture, call it university. No, arts and crafts is all I need. I'll take caligraphy and then I'll make a fake degree.
Phi, beta, delta, kappa. Do what will make you happy. Do what you feel is right. Only but one thing matters. Learn how to live your life. Do what will make God happy. Do what you feel is right only the one thing matters, Learn how to live your life."

I'm gunna go make pancakes now.

I Am A Crazy, Rabid Squirrel! I Want My Cookies!

Ricky and I went to see X-Men 3 & Over the Hedge last night. I enjoyed both of them. Some chick had what I am assuming to be an asthma attach during X3. The paramedics came out and everyone had to leave the theater out the back door.

Ricky's mom and sister are coming today and are staying the night. It's the first time they've seen the place. I hope they like it.

Last night we went to bed at like a little after 1am. At 2:15 I got up with the worst stomach ache in a long time. I got a shower because usually that makes me feel better. I was in there for almost an hour. I couldn't even stand up to get out. I had to crawl out because standing up hurt so bad. Finally, after a few minutes, the pain subsided long enough for me to stand up. Then within like 30 seconds of me getting dressed the pain hit again. I had enough time to grab a pillow from the game room and laid down on the bathroom floor. I laid there about 45 minutes before taking some of the towels off the floor and covering up with them. After 30 or so minutes, I thought I was well enough to get up and go back to bed. No. I stood up, almost fell over, grabbed a blanket from the living room, and passed out on the bathroom floor. At about 5:30 am, I got up because my back and neck were hurting. I figured, if I'm going to get sick, I'm going to get sick, I might as well try to get into bed. I crawled from the bathroom into bed and finally fell asleep once more. I kept waking up ever so often, but would eventuall fall asleep again.

I still don't feel well. My stomach still hurts, and I have this headache that comes and goes. Plus, for some reason my ears have been hurting on and off.

Needless to say, I'm slowly falling apart.

Damn that Regis Philbin and Meredith What's-Her-Name!!!

I have been watching "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" for a few years now, and I have NEVER seen someone win a million dollars!!! I know it has happened, because people have told me they've seen it. Damn it, will some one please win a million dollars so I can stop watching that damn show?!?!?! I'm addicted. Anytime I see it on, I HAVE to watch it, because, maybe, just maybe I'll finally see someone win that damn money!

The Only Way To Get What You Want, Is To Become A Human Yourself

Ricky and I pack up the U-Haul truck tomorrow evening. Thursday morning about 7am, Daddy and I will make our way to Tallahassee. Ricky and I will no longer live in Panama City. To tell you the truth, I'm a little scared. Moving out of town is a big deal. I think everything will be alright...but then again, who knows?

Sunday is our Graduation from GCCC also. I'm really excited about that.

Ok, well, it's time to watch Firefly and pack some more until Ricky goes to bed. After that it is Law and Order: Trial By Jury time! (Yes, I bought that the second I saw it at Wal-Mart, are you kidding me?)

We're Coming To Get You, Barbara...

I am so bored. Here it is 12:05am and I'm not sleepy enough for bed. I took a two hour nap earlier because I was bored, and couldn't find anything else to do. I should have known better than to do that, I know I can never get to sleep if I take a nap.

I've also been working on my 5x7 notecard for my Crime Detection & Investigation final tomorrow for two hours. I've still got five chapters to go over before 2pm I say today.

Ok, well, it's time for a midnight snack, and then back to studying for my essay exam.

*sniffle* *sniffle**sneeze*

Ricky and I went and played paintball yesterday. It was a lot of fun. I'm going to post a picture of my injuries when I get the chance. I've got some nice ones. Two huge bruises thanks to Matt, and the bleeder thanks to some other kid out there. I'm looking forward to the next game we play, surprisingly enough. I was so tired when we got home today. We both were in bed by 7pm tonight. As you can see it is now almost 1am, and I am awake...I woke up about half an hour ago and had trouble getting back to sleep.

I think I'm going to go to Tallahassee today. I need to turn on our utilities and do some other running around over there.

Well, I guess that's about it. Besides the fact that my nose won't stop running, my eyes are burning, and I keep sneezing. Oh, and my arm and leg hurts!

Milk Truck Fat Girl

I had my dive yesterday. It went really well. It was so hot outside with my wetsuit on that I couldn't wait to get into the water. But once I got in, the water was freezing! Didn't take long to get used to though, which was good! We had to make two dives yesterday. And it really wasn't all that bad. There were lots of crabs under the bridge (Hathaway), which I did NOT like! While we were searching, Jerome picked up a live crab and about shoved it in my face! I started freaking out! Looking back, it was pretty funny, but not at the time. Hehehe!

While we were there, the school's truck got stuck in the soft sand! It took a little while for them to get it out. I ended up driving Zinszer back to campus to get his truck and when I got back the other truck was out of the sand. Before I drove him, he backed the truck up into the railing, and I thought he was going to take it out! Those railings are durable! Good thing too!!

Well, it's time for Ricky and I to head out and get things done.

Salsa Shark

I took my Corrections final today. I got a 72 on it...which means I passed the class! I'm so happy! I'm still a little worried about my Crime Detection and Investigation class, but at this point there's nothing more I can do besides study my butt off for the final.

I've got a dive tomorrow...and I really don't feel like doing it. I always feel great before it, but then when the day comes, I don't feel like going. I've always got better things I could be doing. I did get a great compliment from Zinszer today. He told me how great I've been doing in the class.

Well, I'm going to eat some ice cream, finish up some laundry, then hit the bed.

P-ffeiffer, How Would You Like A Punch In Your P-Face?

Here it is 12:46am and I'm so tired my eyes are burning. Still can't let myself go to sleep. I have a final exam tomorrow at 11:15am, and I have a quiz on homicide investigation at 2:00pm. I need to get to bed because I have to be at FSU by 9:00am because I need to retake my Nitrox tests. I did get some good news in Research Methods on Monday. I got a 20/20 on my quiz.

Ricky and I leave in 22 days for Tallahassee. I'm getting excited. We are having some difficulties packing. We have so much stuff it's not even funny! The back room is literally almost full of boxes, and we've barely begun to pack. We want to pack more, but there's so much we can't...we still need things. I packed up all but 4 of our plates, and did things like that to get things done, but it doesn't seem to make a difference! There's still so much stuff!

I think I'm going to head off to bed. I haven't finished my work, but I'll get up at like 7 to finish up. I'm almost finished. Plus, I'm not feeling all that great. This is day two of feeling kinda sick. Blah! Sleepy time! G'night all!

Cowbell! I Need More Cowbell!!!

Look at the time and then ask me why I'm awake. Ricky is sick this morning. I had to call into work for him. I feel bad for him. Luckily he's sleeping now. I tried to stay awake in case he got sick again, but I think, at least for now, that it is safe to return to bed. So, goodnight all. Hope you're all feeling better than Ricky is.
Also, Sidney, sorry I didn't call you yesterday. I'll explain why when I call you today. Sorry.

For Once I Can Say This Is Mine You Can't Take It

Things are starting to come together for the move to Tallahassee. Ricky put in some applications at some stores and we turned in our lease. We still need to fill out some paperwork on pets, but other than that (and turning on the utilities) all we need is the key.

I'm also trying to get a direct independant study instead of one of my classes in the fall. I'm not sure what it is I want to study, so I'm going to talk to Mr. Zinszer, that is, whenever I can get in touch with him. He is the hardest person to get a hold of!

*yawn* I'm sleepy. I've been up since 3:30 this morning. When Ricky left for work, I couldn't get back to sleep.

I have a hair appointment today at 2:45. Not really sure what I'm going to do with it yet, but when do I ever?

Ok, since it is now 6am, I think I'll go get a shower. Not that any of you care to know that.

I Don't Want To Be At The Business End Of A Bad Mistake

My grades are starting to make me happy now. For a little bit there my grades were beginning to slip, but they're coming up again. I got an 89 on my math test tonight. I also got a 16/20 on my research methods quiz. That's the highest grade I've gotten so far. Plus, I got a 68 on my Corrections test. I know it's not great, but it's better than the 52 I got on the first test!

I'm looking forward to our next dive on Saturday. We're going out to Pat Thomas Training Academy in Havana (near Tallahassee). They have a sunken boat, car, and plane. As far as I know, we're supposed to do the underwater obstacle course. I can't find anything to tell me more than that it's just an obstacle course. I'm curious as to what it looks like.
've been stuck on Mythbusters lately. The episode on tonight is if a person can throw a playing card and kill someone, if a heated jaw breaker will explode, and if sandblasting a 8" diameter will create enough static charge to explode like a static cannon and kill or at least injure someone.

Ricky and I watched Toy Story 2 tonight. I had only seen it once in the theaters. It was hilarious. I forgot how funny it was.

I've Seen Elvis, He Was Sitting Next To Bigfoot on the UFO

Nothing much happened today. Ricky and I stayed at the house and packed up some more stuff. We went to the Flea Market and I got two more care bears that I have to pack now. Our house looks so bare in certain places...other places its so full of random stuff!
What movie should I watch? I've been trying to decide that for the past half an hour. I'm gunna go do another look-see.

Ricky is going to sign the lease tomorrow. We will have the apartment on April 16th. But, we're not actually going to move in until like the first week of May. We sold our house and the closing is May 4th. GCCC graduation is May 7th. I'm excited. Ricky and I get to walk across the stage one right after the other. It's going to be so great!
Our house is so messy right now because of all the boxes and stuff. Oh, tomorrow I've gotta take all five kitties to get their shots. That should be oh so much fun! I'm not looking forward to that. Nor am I looking forward to two hours of my kitties crying and whining on the way to Tallahassee!
Alrighty then, I'm going to get a shower, put on some pjs and loaf aroun d on the couch because I feel like poo. Ok, byes everyone!

Flames On The Side Of My Face...Heaving...Breathless...Heaving Breaths...

Ricky and I have started packing our house up. We went to Tallahassee yesterday and looked at some apartments. We're going again tomorrow to look at some we missed yesterday. We would have gone today, but I've got stupid math class tonight. It's at GCCC so it's not Spring Break there. Stupid GCCC!!! Spring Break for them is next week I think.
Ok, well, off to work on packing again. We're also looking at moving sometime in May instead of June. It would be easier that way.

Robson Went Out And Got Himself A Pair Of Ghetto Gums

I had so much fun on the dive yesterday. The drysuit I had didn't exactly keep me dry. It's a good thing I had my wetsuit on underneath it. I was on the recovery team. Jerome and I went down and recovered the body and the handgun and rifle. For some reason, the body bag we were given didn't have a zipper on it. It was kind of difficult to get the body to stay in it, but Jerome rigged it with a weight belt. My drysuit was too big, and there was so much water in the boots that my feet wouldn't stay in them. My fins were still attached to the boots, but I couldn't kick because I couldn't get my feet to stay! I tried to kick like crazy, but I was barely moving. It was pretty funny.
Ok, well, I'm going to eat my mashed potatoes now.

For Someone Who Has Felt So Strong, It's Amazing...I'm Completely Gone

Today has not gone well. And that's all I have to say about that.

Britney Marie

I Know This Hurts, It Was Meant To

Today I've got class (UCSI) and work (Dillard's). I don't wanna go to either *cries and pitches a five year old fit* In UCSI today we get to learn dry suits and I think full face masks. I know it'll be fun, but I just don't feel like going swimming today. I've got more training to do at Dillard's tonight. I think tonight they're going to teach me how to work the hard could it be? I am so sick of watching those stupid training videos too. Tuesday I had to sit through literally THREE hours of them. One of them was 45 minutes long!!!
I'm hungry and we don't have any food. I was going to go shopping yesterday, but I didn't have a chance to with all my classes and such.
Alright, well, I guess it's time for me to stop complaining and get a shower.

Go Cheetah, Get Banana, Hey Monkey, Get Funky!

There is hardly ever anything on television anymore. They're doing some sort of construction work on the ballpark across the street from my house. They've been at it for weeks now. You'd think they'd be done by now. Also, you'd think they'd be courteous enough to do the really loud work later in the day, not at 7-8am. I can never sleep past 8am anymore because of how loud they are!!!

I have been stuck on drinking Propel Kiwi-Strawberry fitness water. It's like liquid crack to me! No joke!

Ok, well, I'm going to go check on my cinnimon rolls and see if I can pick out a movie to watch before I have to leave in 45 minutes. *sigh*

The Hand Behind This Pen Relives A Failure Everyday

Where do I begin? A lot has been going on since high school. Married, moving, and almost a GCCC graduate. I never would have thought I would be where I am. I am the happiest I've been in a long time. Don't get me wrong, I still have my "Oh woe is me" days, but as a whole, I'm still always happy.

*Yawn* I am sleepy. I got up this morning at 3:30am when Ricky left to go to work. I've been up watching "The Blues Brothers" and the local news since then. I've also been looking up old aquaintances from high school and GCCC on here.

My house is freezing. I could turn the heater on 90 degrees, and my house would still be freezing. *sniffle* Ugh, I think I'm starting to get sick too.

Alrighty, I'm going to finish watching my local news and do some other stuff...I haven't decided what that stuff will be yet.
