Ever Just Have a Feeling?

When the dogs woke me up at 4 am this morning, I knew today was going to be a very bad day. I already hate December and New Year's Day and now Christmas Eve Day will forever be ruined.

I got up this morning, walked the dogs and sat down to have my coffee. I booted up my laptop. Well, I tried to boot up my laptop. Something was horribly wrong. So I spent 3 hours messing with it and with the help of a new friend I was able to save my documents. I took the laptop to Best Buy and dropped it off for service that cost $200 and will take up to 5 days. The money isn't that big of an issue, it's the amount of time. I need my laptop for school. Right now I'm using my PC that barely works. The PC is set up on a nightstand, yes a nightstand, not even a table and I am sitting on the tupperware container that holds my puppy's dog food with the keyboard on my lap and the mouse on my knee. Could it get much worse? Yes it could. I'm going to lose all the applications and pretty much everything that was on my laptop. That sucks.

Oh and my brother and my sister in law officially separated today. They have been having marital problems for the last year or so and I guess it finally got really ugly. We're all supposed to get tgether tomorrow night for Christmas dinner. Can you say UNCOMFORTABLE? Should be fun right? The really hard thing for me about them separating is that my niece and nephew are at the EXACT same ages that my brother and I were at when my father left. Scary isn't it?

Well, I just had to get that out. Those of you that do celebrate Christmas, have a very Merry one and those that don't...have a great day. Until next time....

It's That Time of the Month

No, not THAT time. It's the time where I make a new post and provide you with some updates of the excitement that is my life.

I went on a date. It sucked.

I got a remote car starter. It rocks.

I got a space heater for my bedroom. I no longer shiver when I get out of bed.

My puppy is now 10 months old and is 22 lbs. He has been raising hell around the apartment.

I haven't gotten any in 11 months. I'm very grumpy.

All holiday shopping was completed two weeks before the holiday. I was very happy.

My niece and nephew loved the presents I got them. I was happy.

I just remembered I haven' t gotten any in 11 months. I'm grumpy again.

Hope you all have a very Happy Holiday season. Happy Hanukkah. Merry Christmas.

Smokey Is

going to be just fine. Isn't he beautiful? He's lost a little weight, but the vet said that he needed to lose a bit and now he's at a good weight so there's no concern there. The lumps that I felt on him were just Lipomas.

Thank you all for your well wishes. Now, if you could also keep my cousin in your thoughts and prayers for her upcoming surgery.

In other news...I was walking the dogs today and a man stopped his car to talk to me. He gave me his phone number and asked me out. I was flattered. I took the number, I doubt that I'll call him, but it was flattering. This makes the third man to stop by while I was walking my dogs and ask me out in the 10 months that I've lived here. I've declined all of them, but damn it feels good. My sister in law wants to know what I wear to walk the dogs and I'm sure that you are wondering the same thing. I was wearing jeans and a turtleneck.

My next class starts tomorrow and from what I can see, it's very labor intensive and it's 6 credits. Wish me luck with this one.

Is everyone done their holiday shopping?
