I need to relax

So. Apparently there is not one soul right now interested in living in this house, unfortunately.

I'm in indiana with the dog, and karl for the weekend. Sister just had surgery, and my grandma's having a picnic.

I could really use some relaxation time.

Goin' home...

Karl and I went down to Indiana for the 4th this weekend.

We took Daniel, my 3 year old little brother, to Spider Man 2. Amazing! Especially watching Daniel watch the movie. I'd have to say I proved my "mommy instincts" that night by carrying a large popcorn, a large pop, a box of candy, my purse, and Daniel all the way from the counter to our seats 6 rows down and all the way in the inside! yyahhhh. Oh and it was quite amuzing when we walked past the ice cream machine and he started whining that he wanted some, and me quick as lightening replied "on that's fake hunny there's no ice cream in there" and he said OKAY what kind of little kid says ok!? but .. that was good.

Also the parade, fireworks, and cook out with Karl and the family was pretty nice as well.

I hope every one else had a lovely 4th as well

So, I walk in to Karl's house Friday night, give him a hug, lay my stuff down, and curl up next to him on the couch.
I look up at him, and he's got the wierdest face ever, so I'm like "what's your deal"... and then I turn around and look, and THERE'S LANCE AND KRISTY P. holy crap!
They were hiding in the bathroom, and they sure got me!

Here is a picture of Karl and I from the wedding. It's the only one I have, unless I get copies of actual photos.

Sunday, May 9, 2004


This weekend I stood up in my cousin Wendy's wedding.

Friday night we all went to chicago on the train/CTA to some irish pub down town for dinner after the rehearsal. Sooo good. and Saturday was the big day. She was the most beautiful bride ever, and I was the most embarrased bridesmaid ever when my flower fell out of my hair exactly when I started walking.. I have some pretty amazing new cousins after this wedding.

Saturday night Karl and I stayed at my moms, got tofu, hung out with my momma, aunt, brothers, and sister. Sunday morning, went out for Mother's day breakfast..

all in all it was a good weekend.

Friday, April 23, 2004

I had such a lovely time this weekend.. I'm glad I got my health back for the nice weather!

I played video games with Karl, had dinner with Karl's grandparents, went on a date to see enternal sunshine of the spotless mind (also with karl-which by the way is absolutely amazing.. go see it), went to a wonderful show Saturday and saw Stilly and tons of friends, walked off trails with.....Karl. hehe. I'm sure I'm forgetting a lot

Thursday, March 25, 2004

This is Karl.

well, today was excellent. so warm, i even made it to skelletones this morning on my break, and that was a nice time.

tomorrow, ashley is coming hopefully.i cant decide what show to go to this weekend. i really want to see mecury radio theatre, but i dont want to see any of the other bands, nor do i want to spend 7 bucks for one band.

or i could go see 88mph. but i really want to see mercury.

dang im stumped

oh well, it all depends how im feeling at the time.

ive decided that when i get old, i want to live in the country and own 3 bulls, 2 pigs and 2 great danes. dont get me wrong, i wont eat the pigs or the bulls, i just wanna pet them. one of my pigs will be an indoor pig. its gonna be sweet. you are all invited.

In the hospital...

I just haven't been able to journal on account of being in the hospital.

I was rushed to the emergency room by one of my co-workers around 10am Thursday morning, I think anyhow. My body was attempting to pass an 8mm kidney stone, acompanied by approximately 32 other smaller kidney stones of various sizes.... Needless to say, my kidneys failed miserably.

I was in the hosptial for oh, I don't even know. A couple days. On morphine for the entire length of my visit. Every 8 minutes I'd get a dose, and every 4 hours I would get a "big one" as I liked to call it. AKA a huge shot that would knock me out for a while. I'm not sure really where I'm going with this...

I was in massive amounts of pain... I had some surgery called lithotrypsie or something like that... I peed alot of blood, slept alot.. Apparently I experienced the about the same amount of pain as someone in labor, or some one having a massive heart attack. Luckly I dont remember most of it. We finally convinced them to let me come home, some how.

Karl has spend the last couple days with me... I've been on a lot of drugs since I got home.
The mornings really suck, I hurt alot. I absolutely hate peeing right now.. And I miss karl.

Friday, March 19, 2004

ive realised a lot today.

ive realised just how good the sun feels, when its warm.

its a nice day.

ive got a nice weekend planned.

includes, jousty, stephen, more jousty, snare drum, ashley. booya

Ultimate Laziest Weekend Ever.

Karl was here for the weekend, and I think it was the Ultimate Laziest Weekend Ever. In fact, we'll just title it that, because it fits so well. As always, I had an amazing time.

Daniel, my darling little brother, woke us up at 8 AM this morning. And we couldnt resist the cuteness! So we played with him till lunch.

I got a cute bathing suit, and had some awesome home made bread before Karl went home. He tucked me in for a nap (which is a good thing, because I was so tired, I was on the verge of tears every 5 seconds. ha) and then he went home.

Thursday, March 11, 2004

it's been a good week.

So I'm having a pretty good week, minus getting sick.
I managed to get my work done to graduate tomorrow,
and Karl, the lovely boyfriend he is, drove from michigan
to accompany me to my "family night" for my special ed
kids last night. I'm really glad we could go together, and
I could say bye to all my kids... Thank you Karl.

Monday, March 8, 2004

Coming up...

So, I realised some things.

1. I have approx. 3 months till I move to Grand Rapids

2. I have about 1 week till I graduate Highschool

3. I have about 1 min to get in the shower, before I'm late for work.

I had a lovely weekend with Karl, featuring hang out time with both Justin and Karl's sister. I hope I dont get sick with what Karl had though. None the less. Good times.

Valentines Day 04

I had a lovely Valentines weekend with Mr.Karl this weekend. I only wish it could have been longer! We made a wonderful dinner together, and watched movies Friday, Babysat Saturday morning (if you could only see Karl and these kids!!), had dinner at AppleBees (because my mom paid for it all), and watched movies again at home. AKA I slept through them all. Sunday, grandma made us breakfast, and dinner, then Karl went home. I hope every one else's weekend was as lovely!

Wonderful Boyfriend

Alright, so I finally get to Michigan after work, and I'm sooo so hungry. So, Karl and I get some TacoBell, and head back home. I go down stairs to put my stuff in my normal spot, and decide to put my pjs on. And when I turn on the light, there is a rose, surrounded by little baby white flowers, a card that says thank you for being my girlfriend (soo cute), and a key chain (since I havent had one in forever) from Karl. Is that not the cutest thing ever!!!!!

Monday, January 26, 2004

I've moved...

Karl came down this weekend to help me move in to my Grandma's house. I really enjoyed my last weekend at home, and only because he was with me. I have a new phone number now. I wish I could have seen Mishy and all my kids in Michigan, but It had to be done! They have a really nice computer here, but they also have dial up (which uses their primary phone line) so, I probably wont be online very much.
