Plasma Blahs......

Ugh...I really need to remember to eat something before and after donating plasma. I got super light headed every time I moved this afternoon. Did not feel well at all. Katie and I were going to go to the 12:25 Transformers movie but I asked her if we could go to the 12:55 instead because I needed to eat. Afterwards I wanted to go look for some sandals for work. I found a couple pairs but then started to feel light headed and clammy again so I asked her to take me home. I ended up turning on the air conditioner in the bedroom and going to sleep. I just woke up. I still feel kinda blah....
Transformers was good. But it was obviously made for guys. Guess some directors don't think girls want to see action movies. I mean come on...did they really need to put very large gold metal balls on a robot????

Ft Stevens, Warrenton, OR June 09

I took a series of tootsie pictures by request from Janet! So here are tootsies with Haystack Rock.
Tootsies with a pina colada.
Tide pools right near Haystack Rock, Cannon Beach, OR.

He had so much fun last night at our Mexican Theme Night at the big camp out. I never did get a head count, but there were a lot of people there. And waaaay too many enchiladas! The funnest part was after dinner sitting around the fire with friends, and their 8 year old son Steven. What a freaking crack up! I think his dad was getting a little embarrassed when Steven decided to start telling little "secrets" about mom and dad. Such as dad saying to mom...."You're a bad girl...rawr..." and her calling him a "naughty monkey" OMG....we were laughing so hard! I was crying it was so funny! Steven was keeping track of the amount of beers hubby drank, without hubby knowing. According to Steven, hubby had drank 50 beers. He was a little off. When hubby told him that he was drinking water, Steven proceeded to tell him that his breath smelled like beer. We got him back on to telling stories about his mom and dad!

Good times!

So sad.....

Two completely different American Icons....both gone. I feel really strange about this. You knew that Farrah was going to die. The poor woman was dealing with a horrible cancer, and you actually felt relief that she was no longer in pain. Michael...I'm surprisingly very sad about this. I have not been a fan or behind him in any way for several years. I think the things that he has done to his body, and reports of his odd personal life have turned me away from being a fan. But you have to realize that he was MICHAEL JACKSON. He was the most popular artist in the entire world for so many years. So you have Farrah...the Icon of American wholesomeness...a beautiful and talented actress...gone....and you have Michael Jackson...the most popular man in the world for decades. Unfortunately, Farrah's death will be put into the background. I hope that News sites will not do this. This beautiful woman deserves to be recognized for her achievements. But I have a feeling that she will be....
My thoughts are with both of their families and friends.....

Comedy and Tragedy

First....A little comedy....

Stoned wallabies make crop circles

SYDNEY (Reuters) – The mystery of crop circles in poppy fields in Australia's southern island state of Tasmania has been solved -- stoned wallabies are eating the poppy heads and hopping around in circles.
"We have a problem with wallabies entering poppy fields, getting as high as a kite and going around in circles," the state's top lawmaker Lara Giddings told local media on Thursday.
"Then they crash. We see crop circles in the poppy industry from wallabies that are high," she said.
Many people believe crop circles that mysteriously appear in fields around the world are created by aliens.
Poppy producer Tasmanian Alkaloids said livestock which ate the poppies were known to "act weird" -- including deer and sheep in the state's highlands.
"There have been many stories about sheep that have eaten some of the poppies after harvesting and they all walk around in circles," said field operations manager Rick Rockliff.
Australia produces about 50 percent of the world's raw material for morphine and related opiates.

That story cracks me up....


Farrah Fawcett has died today. How sad. But also a relief that she is no longer in pain. Dying from cancer is such a horrible way to go. So much pain and suffering. I hate knowing that Patrick Swayze is going through the same thing right now. I have not watched Farrah's special that was on last month. I didn't want to see her going through all of that. Maybe I should watch it now.
My thoughts are with her loved ones.....

Zombies invaded my Dreams!

I had a dream about Zombies last night. That's what I get for doing Facebook quizzes. And I'm sure the Woody Harrelson trailer yesterday before Year One didn't help either. It was called Zombieland or something like that. Weird movie that looked like it was about people finding new and creative ways to dispose of the walking dead. Then it looks like some kind of competition. I will be skipping that movie. Besides, I already saw it in my dream last night. I dreamt that I was trying to get away from a little girl zombie. It's good to know that in my dreams I can balance on planter boxes attached to the house and then be able to crawl up a decorative ladder to get away from it, crawl onto a small roof and get a window open and still have the thought that I should grab the ladder and bring it in so that the little zombie can't get in the house with me. So HA! I'm smart! Take that Facebook quiz that told me I would not survive day one of a Zombie attack!
Changing subject.....
What is with all these politicians having affairs? I understand that to be in politics you have to have some kind of ego, just like actors. But come on guys.....have some morals. It's like these guys think they can get away with anything. That they are gods gift to the world and all women want them. People voted me into office, therefore they all want me! Get a grip dude.....You're not that great. Women who sleep with married men are the lowest class of women around. They are only sleeping with you because they think that you either
A: Have money
B: Think you will get them ahead, boost their own career.
You guys actually deserve each other. If I was your wife I would take you for everything I could get my hands on....and then double it in court!

Funny LOLcat Video

OK....this cracks me up!

Katie and I are going to go and see Year One today. Hope it's funny!

Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act

Here is an article from Yahoo.News this morning.....

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama is set to sign into law an anti-smoking bill that will give the Food and Drug Administration unprecedented authority to regulate tobacco.
Obama is scheduled to sign the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act during an event Monday in the Rose Garden. The law allows the FDA to reduce nicotine in tobacco products, ban candy flavorings and block labels such "low tar" and "light." Tobacco companies also will be required to cover their cartons with large graphic warnings.
The law won't let the FDA ban nicotine or tobacco outright, but the agency will be able to regulate what goes into tobacco products, make public the ingredients and prohibit marketing campaigns, especially those geared toward children.
Anti-smoking advocates looked forward to the bill after years of attempts to control an industry so fundamental to the U.S. that carved tobacco leaves adorn some parts of the Capitol.
Opponents from tobacco-growing states like top-producing North Carolina argued that the FDA has proved through a series of food safety failures that it's not up to the job. They also said that instead of unrealistically trying to get smokers to quit or to prevent others from starting, lawmakers should ensure that people have other options, like smokeless tobacco.
As president, George W. Bush opposed the legislation and threatened a veto after it passed the House last year. The Obama administration, by contrast, issued a statement declaring strong support for the measure.
Obama has spoken publicly of his own struggles to quit cigarettes.

I'm not sure how much this will help, but I hope it does. Why anyone would ever start smoking in the first place is beyond my understanding. It's like any other addictive drug, why even do it? There is no reason that anyone should smoke cigarettes. It's not something that you pick up and go..."Hmmmm....I would really like to inhale that into my lungs so that I can cough my guts out. I think that would be really fun and I would look cool at the same time! Just ignore my watering eyes and the fact that I smell like a bar." I don't have a lot of sympathy for people who smoke and complain that they smoke because they can't quit. Why did you agree to start in the first place? It's your choice to smoke. You made the decision, you live with it. You are the only one who can decide what you will and will not do to your own body. If you know that you are slowly killing yourself by smoking and you want to quit, then do something about it. It's all up to you and no one else. You can do it if you want to.
So what are you waiting for????

Father's Day

We had a very good day today. So good that hubby is fast asleep in the big soft chair, and I just woke up from a nap! Good day!
We had a full house for BBQ...hubby and I, Bryan and Celina (she did spend some time today with her own daddy), Katie and Timmy, my nephew Kris, and the in-laws Bob and Maryalice. We asked Kris to come over because his FAM is in Hawaii. He was asked to go along but didn't want to take unpaid vacation from his job. He needed the money more than the trip, but I'm sure he is disappointed. I'm glad he came over.
I was thinking this morning about my own dad. I have not spoken to him for about 9 years. I was thinking about how yesterday Beth and I made Father's Day cards, she for her own daddy, and me for hubby and FIL. And yet it never once occurred to me yesterday that I was not making a card for my own dad. How sad is that? He never even came to mind. He is out of my life by his own choice. We all tried to keep him involved, but he would eventually run away. This last time he ran several states away. What a sad man. He is nothing like my daddy from my childhood. He was good to me then. Such a great dad. But then it all fell apart, and it turns out it was never that great for my mom. But she hid it well. So here I am, spending Father's Day with my hubby and his dad, with barely a thought of my own, and I am OK with that.....

Saturday, June 20, 2009

loooooooooong day......

oooof....Has it been a long day. I did not get to bed until late last night because Bryan and Celina are in town. And then I needed to get up at 6am to take Mom, sister, BOL and niece to the airport because they left this morning for Hawaii. I could not get to sleep. You would think it was me who l was leaving on a trip in the morning. I seriously woke up every hour. I finally just got up at 5:45am. When I got home from being the shuttle driver, I decided to go turn a movie on because Bryan and Celina were still asleep. Well guess who ended up going back to sleep for 3 hours? Yep. I didn't even get to say goodbye to hubby who was off for the day to a car show. Oh well.

Beth came over today and we made cards. I used all new paper that I have not used before. FUN FUN FUN! Beth, of course, made the cutest cards. She made a really cute one with a wheelbarrow stamp that she colored in the flowers and little bird. Cute. I will upload pics of some of mine.

And my day is not even over. I made a jello salad for tomorrows BBQ. I have potatoes boiling for the potato salad and the eggs are now cooling. When I am done with the potatoes, I still have about 9 cards I want to do. They will be 3 sets of 3 of a kind for a project I'm doing. Won't take long.....I hope.....

There was a young President who swallowed a Fly....

OK....He didn't actually "swallow" the fly....but he flat out squished it! And big freaking deal! I can't even begin to tell you how many bugs I have squished, squashed, shmooshed, slapped, smacked, smeared, or smothered in toilet paper. Sometimes I even use a paper towel. But do I care what PETA thinks? Hell no. Go save a whale. Go save some tuna. Go save a dolphin. It is my understanding that flies are not on any kind of endangered species lists. But here we go, having to read and listen to PETA spout off their values on insects. Do these people not have anything better to do? If someone wants to kill a stupid fly then who cares? Well I guess PETA does. I'm just so tired of people throwing their values on everyone else. If you want to save every spider or bug that crawls into your space, then by all means save the little sucker. Put it outside where a nice big bird can eat it. I have been known to scoop up critters and put them outside. Mostly if they are on the big squishy side and it would gross me out to kill it. But if it is of the non-gross out type, then I will take care of it. Case in point....you know those fuzzy jumpy black spiders? **shivers** Yeh those ones....there was one on the bedroom windowsill yesterday. It must have come in from the teeny tiny space under the air conditioner. I tried to get the creepy crawler to go back out, but all it kept doing was jumping around freaking me out. So I left it. Yep. I left a spider in my bedroom. It would have freaked me out more to try and kill it. Those suckers jump! And they are black and fuzzy like little mini tarantulas.....ewwwww....

Totally Made My Day!

You know how the other day I mentioned saying Hi to some people that I went to school with? That I went up to them regardless of whether they were going to remember me or not....Well that happened to me this afternoon! A guy sent me a message on FB and asked for me by my maiden name. We went to Junior High together, although he was a year younger. I recognized his name, but not his face. We chatted a little back and forth through messaging. He remembers me a lot more than I remembered him. But the more we chatted the more things started coming back. He was a class younger, but he hung out with a lot of people from my class. He mentioned some names from his class, and I remembered all of them. I think the reason I didn't remember him as much is because he moved away before High School. It made my day to have someone remember me. Just like how I hoped I made Karen and Steve feel on Monday. I just think this whole thing is so weird that what I did a couple days ago, has come back now to me. Is this what people refer to as 'Good Karma" ????
If it is....then I will take it!

Sorry....Sooooo soooorrrrryyyy....

OK....like anyone even cares. I was too busy today at work to blog. Boo Hoo....Now I am completely exhausted and I'm going home, skipping dinner, and crawling into bed. I will try to do something interesting tomorrow....but don't count on it.....

"You probably don't remember me, but......"

Last night at my niece's graduation I saw a couple people that I went to schol with. High School and Elementary School. A lady named Karen and a guy named Steve. Oh gosh....did I ever have a crush on Steve in Elementary School! LOL! Karen was sitting right in front of me. The lady next to her talked and talked and talked.....good lord. But I have decided to say Hi to people from school when I see them. Why not? I think it makes someone feel good when you say Hi. Even if they don't remember who you are, you have remembered who they are. I think that makes someone feel good. So I interrupted little chatty Kathy, and said Hi to Karen. We had a brief conversation, and then chatty Kathy started back at where I interrupted her at. People like that drive me nuts, but I didn't have to listen to her! And then I knew that Steve was sitting behind me because when they said his sons name they cheered. After the ceremony I saw him outside and decided that I would say Hi to him too. He was very nice and we chatted a little. He asked if I see anyone from Elementary School. I told him that I chat with one online, Sheryl. He laughed and said he still has the scar by his eye where she threw a rock at him! Too funny. So I stepped up and said Hi, and I feel good about it. They may not remember me, but I remembered them.
At the Andre Rieu concert the other night, one of his singers performed the song Time to Say Goodbye. It's a beautiful song. Here is a video of Andrea Bocelli and Sarah Brightman performing it. So beautiful......

Andre and Maui

Once again....Andre Rieu was fantastic. He is quite the showman, and his band/orchestra is also. It amazes me how this is the fourth year in a row we have seen his show, and he still has so many of the same members. He must either be a great man to work for....or he pays very well! Not to mention the traveling all around the world. I wish he would change it up a little bit though. He still tells the same lame jokes, and plays most of the same songs. He did one or two different songs, but I wish he would have a new show every tour. I know...that is asking a lot, but I really would like to see something new. Still.....a great show. When they perform My Heart Will Go On and Amazing Grace (with bagpipes) you get chills. What is it about bagpipes that turn people to mush??? I don't think I know anyone who does not love the sound of bagpipes.

I think Robert has found a place for us to stay in Maui. OMG! It's gorgeous. He is emailing the owner today to reserve our week. I want September to get here NOW! It's perfect. Oceanfront.....pool.....beach.....ahhhhhhh........I can't wait to go and spend the entire week laying on the beach. We have talked and we are not going to do anything that week. Just lay around. We are going to hit up COSTCO as soon as we get there, since it is near the airport. Get some supplies for the week. Maybe hit up some local fruit stands. I will download some books onto the Sony Reader so that I will only have to bring that and not a bunch of books. Then I will just lay around...snorkel a little. Robert did say that he was thinking of taking an excursion out to Molokini Crater. I would do that if he wanted too. But I'm not going to ask him to do a bunch of stuff like we usually do. I really want to just relax. AND SOAK UP SOME SUN!

Andre Rieu Tonight!

We had such a great time yesterday and Jack & Donna's 50 Wedding Anniversary. My goodness....there were so many people there! They have a ton of friends! Jack is an only child, but Donna is the oldest of 8. Yes....8!!! And all but one brother were there yesterday. It was so sweet to see that many people there to celebrate with this wonderful couple. Jimmy was there too. Jimmy, for those of you who read my blog regularly might remember, lost his wife Norma very unexpectedly last summer. It was good to see him. He still wants all of us to come down to the lake for a weekend. He said "I don't know who is going to do all the cooking without Norm there, but I'll be sure to have gas!" He of course was referring to the BBQ! He's so funny. We all still really miss Norma. What a wonderful lady.....
After the party we went to the Eagles where Jack & Donna had their motor home parked with a bunch of other friends from out of town and their motor homes. They were still having quite the party. We stayed until I could not take the cold anymore, which was almost 10PM. I think they stayed up drinking and whooping it up until well into the night!
Tonight we are going to see Andre Rieu with hubby's dad and his wife. We think this may be our 4th time. Maybe 5th. Lost count. We always go with them. It's a lot of fun. Andre puts on a great show!
I am uploading a couple videos. Enjoy!

50th Anniversary Card

Front of card
When I got home last night I had to make a 50th Wedding Anniversary card for our friends Jack & Donna. We are going to their party today in Eugene (I'll wave at ya Bonnie!). I started working on it at 7:00 and did not finish until after 9:30....oiy. Sooooo tired. I left all my stuff on the table and put it away this morning. I guess maybe I shouldn't have waited until the night before to make it....ya think???
I know the pictures are yellowish.....but I was too tired last night to care!

Cool Weather Pic

I have been so busy this afternoon at work. Not busy at all in the morning. Instead, everything seem to hit this afternoon. But that's OK...made it go fast.

WOO HOO!!! Lets start the weekend!

Here is a really cool picture that I saw on the web this morning. Its a weird cloud pattern in Iowa that they are thinking they need to name. No one has ever seen a pattern like this before. At least not that anyone has taken a picture of. Very cool!

Cards are Done!

OK....cards are done. I had most of them done last night. I just needed to put the last few together. Didn't take very long today. I worked on them for about 4 hours last night, and then about an hour today. AND....I didn't have to buy anything! I could have gone to the store and bought stuff, but then I would have been in the hole. What's the point of being paid money to make cards if you turn around and spend more money??? LOL! So I figured out what I wanted to do with what I had already.
So I made little Graduation hats and tassels and then made trifold cards and put the hat on front as something to close the card. I think they turned out good....but I'm still super nervous about whether they are good enough for the person who wants them. I freak out when someone wants to pay me for cards. If I'm just making a card for them for free....then I think....well its free so they can't complain! I'm sure she will like them. I'm just panicked a little. But that's just me! I also wanted to keep them simple because half of them are for boys.
So I will take them to work tomorrow and cross my fingers......

More Ramblings from a Middle-Aged Woman

Just a little this and that....

Miss CA USA: Good Riddance. I could care less what your beliefs are on the issue of Gay Marriage. I personally do not have a problem with it at all. Who someone marries has no effect on me what-so-ever. My opinion is that not all men and women can get it right, so why not let men and men or women and women get it wrong too? LOL! But where you screwed up was in not doing your job. Being Miss CA USA is a year long commitment to do the things that the Miss CA USA organization selected you to do. So shut up and do your job. You had your entire lifetime to speak your mind and do the appearances you wanted when you had completed your year obligation. So now someone else can do it. Obviously she should have been selected in the first place.

The Old Anti-Semitic Guy: WTF???? Again....keep your idiotic anti-anything rants to yourself! Why do some people feel like they have to kill kill kill to get their point across??? I just do not get it. And the only person he killed was most likely not even Jewish. So what point have you made? You killed a guard. A man there just doing his job, most likely trying to support a family. But you have killed him. You are an ass.

Local 8th Grader: This is so sad. An 8th grade boy was running in his PE class today and collapsed and died. So young, so very sad. The district is making councilors available to not only students, but to the firemen who tried to save his life. How tragic.

Something at least Good: One of the agents at work asked me to make 10 Graduation Cards for her. And she paid me to do it. I of course felt so weird about taking money, so I only charged her $2 a card. I think I have enough supplies at home to do all of the cards. I will check tonight, but I'm sure I can do them with what I have. I already have in mind what I'm going to do. I will share a photo when they are done!

YAY! I get to play BUNCO tonight! I love playing BUNCO. I used to have a group that I played with for a few years a long time ago. It was fun. I miss playing. It got to be where it was too hard to get subs. If you don't know anything about BUNCO, you have 12 people in your group and you meet once a month. If someone can't make it that night, you have to find a sub for them. We were having to get at least 4 subs a month and it just got ridiculous, so we stopped. I would love to put another group together but its hard to find 12 women willing to meet once a month. One of the ladies that I work with has a group with her daughters. This is the second time she has asked me to sub when its at her house. Of course I jumped right on that! I know its just a silly dice game, but its all about getting a group together and having fun once a month. And winning fun prizes! And eating good food! And having dessert! LOL! I'll let you know if I win any prizes. I didn't last time.
Katie and I donated plasma again today. I took my money and put it away for Hawaii. I think I will go back again really early Thursday and do it again. I would have to get there right at 7am though. I'm having lunch with Jenny at 11:30, so I would have to be done by 11am. It makes it worth it to go twice in a week because you get paid more the second time you go. I was only paid $25 today. I would get another $35 if I went again in the same week. Do I need the money? No. It's just kinda fun. Well maybe not fun, just different. You just sit there and then get paid. I took my Sony Reader to read while donating, and I didn't know that the battery had died. Thank God they had a good movie on to watch, even though I had to read the closed caption. It was Heath Ledger's The Four Feathers. So it made it go pretty fast.
Not mush else.
Just me rambling......

We have been putting together a fund raiser cookbook at work. I have been entering a lot of recipes because some of the agents are too busy to do it. Man....there are some really yummy sounding recipes! We have a lot of good cooks at work! I seriously have been wasting my time in the kitchen. There is no reason for me to have been cooking the same meals over and over and over. Except for the fact that what I did cook was cheap, quick and easy. I had it down to cooking dinners that mostly took 30 minutes. If it took longer than that, then it was made on the weekend. But since working on this cookbook I am going to try new things. One of them is Ginger Beef. It sounds so good. I need a wok though. I have always wanted one, but never really had the need for it. Now I want one. There are a couple enchilada recipes, and come curry ones that I also want to try. The other recipes that sound good are a couple for Beef Stroganoff. Now I make Beef Stroganoff, but not with wine. These call for wine. I can't wait to try those too! Our cookbook does not come out until I think September, so I think I am going to have to print a couple off first. I don't want to wait that long to try them!

Bradley Cooper....my new crush

Just got back from seeing The Hangover. I have a crush on Bradley Cooper now. I always though he had beautiful blue eyes, but I thought he was kinda short in Wedding Crashers, but in this movie, yeh....he is not short at all! Not that there is anything wrong with being short. In Wedding Crashers though he played that jerk preppy guy, all clean cut looking. But this time, yum, he was all scruffy and yummy! I tried to find a picture of him from The Hangover, but the one I could find was him with a bloody lip. Not so hot. But I found a couple worth posting!

I was bothered most of yesterday morning about the dream I had the night before. I hate when a dream like that seems so real. Like you just had to go through all those conversations again that you didn't want to go through in the first place. I talked to my mom about it on our way to the outlet stores. It helped to get some of it out so that I would stop thinking about it. And then today I got an email from someone here at work that said this.....
There comes a point in your life when you realize:
Who matters,
Who never did,
Who won't anymore...
And who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past,
there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.

I needed to see those words. I feel better now......

dream dream dream...........

I woke up from a dream this morning that I really would have rather not had. It was about a situation that occurred about a year ago that honestly I thought I was over. So why dream about it now? I would have rather had a sex dream or something. Haven't had one of those in ages! Bummer.....
I am deleteling the blog I just wrote.
I am not going there any more.
I am done with it........
It was only a dream that means nothing......

Oh Bubba.....

Look how freaking swollen my ankle was! They are better today.

While we were at the beach this weekend, Bryan & Celina came down and stayed at the house and watched the kitties. They were coming down that weekend anyway, it just happened to fall on the weekend we already had planned on going to the beach. So it worked out that they could feed the kitties instead of having the neighbor boy do it.

I left them a note on what they could and could not do with the kitties being inside. The biggest things was "Watch out for Kodi. He will bolt through the door if given the chance." Well guess who bolted? At midnight. Yep...the black cat Kodiak. From what I can remember of my conversation with Bryan, it started like this...."I might as well confess and tell you now before the neighbors tell you." So I knew something was not good, and figured it involved Kodi. It did. Bryan said that at midnight he, Celina and their friend Charlie were going to go out and sit in the hot tub. As soon as they opened the back door, Kodi took off. So the 3 of them, in swimsuits, spent the next half hour or so running around our neighbors backyard with flashlights chasing the cat. Poor Celina fell at one point and scraped her leg. They couldn't get the cat, so they decided to go sit in the hot tub and just leave the back door open and see if he would go in by himself. About an hour or so later Kodi did just that. He went back in the house. One of them jumped up and shut the door so that he would not get back out.....and promptly locked them all out of the house. So it is now after 1AM and they are out back in swimsuits, locked out of the house. I have never been a fan of the key hid outside, so they didn't have that option. Bryan, apparently has been in this situation before because he was able to get back inside. Needless to say, I will be fixing that little problem so that "others" can't figure out how to get in!

I forgot

I was busy at work and forgot to blog. I even had a blog all ready in my head, but was busy and didn't remember to write it. And then late this afternoon my ankles were feeling weird so I looked at them. They were huge! They were both super swollen. I think I was in the sun too much this weekend. I don't know what happened. I took a pic on my cell phone. I will share tomorrow. Anyway, they were super swollen, so I came home and did a few things on the computer then went to bed to prop them up. So I will be back tomorrow.
