New Blog

I have decided to close this blog. I have started a new blog and you should be receiving an email to allow you to read the new blog. If you don't get the email, leave me a comment and let me know. Typing in 80 email addresses, I know I probably got at least one of them wrong.

New Friend

Sophie and I met a new friend today...

She is really loving all the time we have been able to spend outside. Even in the middle of the day it's seems quiet. On my second night here I was walking Sophie and looked up and was shocked at how many stars I could see. One funny thing...I went to Taco Bell yesterday (thanks to Redfrog) and noticed they close at 9:30 on Saturday nights. The Taco Bell's in KC would stay open until 3am. Thankfully I have never had a craving for a Burrito Supreme at 2am.

Today I went for my physical and drug screen for my new job. I was excited because my blood pressure was perfect at 118/80. I am all ready to go for Thursday morning. I am looking forward to getting back to a routine. I love having a few days off, but I think I just do better when I have more structure in the day.

So..tell me something good that happened to you today.........

Something New

I have experienced something I never did when I was in Kansas City. Yesterday when I was out walking Sophie almost everyone that drove past us not only slowed down and moved over, but they waved at us. I imagine Sophie and I could literally walk in the middle of the road and people would still slow down and wait for us to move over. You know how when you first learned to drive you learned that the pedestrian always has the right of way? This does not apply in the Kansas City. I don't know how many times Sophie and I were almost hit because some ass was too close to us.

I have one of those stakes that you put in the ground with a leash and Sophie is loving being outside. She won't let me leave her on it and come inside, but I imagine once she feels really comfortable here she will have no problem just hanging out on the front porch. Yesterday we were sitting out there and someone walked by and she didn't bark, just looked at them. She has also spotted a few squirrels, but hasn't attempted to run after them.

I love this picture of her:

Ben continues to do so well. He is walking around and acting normal again. The fact that he has calmed down makes me very happy. I think he really likes it here.

Last night I woke up around 4am and decided to get up and see what was on TV. I ended up staying up for an hour watching a couple episodes of Roseanne. I forgot how much I love that show. It's so good to have cable again.

Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday.

I am in love....

I am in love. I am sure you are thinking I am talking about S (which by the way, I am still totally head over heels in love with her), but I am actually talking about my new house and my new town. I love love love my new house. This morning S and I were up at 4:45am since she had to go into work and as the sun came up I realized how much light my house has. My apartment was so dark and kind of like a dungeon that it's nice to have so many windows and sunlight. I have no idea how I lived in an apartment with just one window. We set up the bed so that the end is right by a window and Bonk loves sitting on the bed looking out the window.

Bonk and Sophie have adjusted very well to our new home. When I first brought Sophie in she couldn't wait to get out, but now that our stuff is in and kind of settled, I thinks he knows this is home. I think she is loving all the room she has. She is currently in the bedroom on her dog bed.

Bonk and Ben have done so well and did really well in the car for the 3 hours it took us to get here. I put a towel over the carrier and I think that really helped since they couldn't see out the car window. During the drive I would say "where's the baby?" about every 20 minutes and Ben would let out a meow so I knew he was OK. Once we got to the house I put them in the spare bedroom and opened the kennel door. Both of them stayed in there for a while, but Bonk eventually came out and just started walking around like she knew this was home. Ben had to be convinced to come out later in the evening. And he is doing soooooo well. He is walking around and exploring and doing so well. I am so proud of him. Yesterday was a very stressful day for him and I am so proud that he is becoming more trusting. He is currently asleep under the covers on the bed. I don't think he got much sleep yesterday, so I expect him to sleep most of today.

Here are some pictures from yesterday:
Goodbye Kansas City....

Here is the living room and all it's boxes and Miss Bonk exploring:

Here is the kitchen.
I am still shocked at how much storage space I have. It's going to be nice being able to buy extra stuff when it's on sale. I plugged my fridge in this morning and it's already cool.

Here is the utility room:
Right now this is the worst room of the house because all the stuff that I don't know what to do with is in here.

Here is the living room:
I probably won't leave the couch there, but when the guys brought it in yesterday I just had them put it there since they were saying, "I can't believe how heavy this couch is."

Here is the master bedroom:
The bed has already been moved. The head of the bed is to the left of the picture (and up against the wall) and the end is right by the window on the back wall.

Here is Sophie after the very long car ride:
I have taken her on a few walks and she just loves the new neighborhood.

Here is Ben thinking that maybe he will come out of the kennel:
I really am proud of him because he has done so much better then what I thought. He is still pretty scared, but at least he's coming out to the living room and being somewhat sociable.

For those of you that have been reading my blog for a while know that stray cats are just drawn to me. I fed and took care of the ones at my house and then at the apartment there were about 4 stray cats that would hang out by my front door.

I hadn't been here more then 2 hours yesterday when this guy showed up:

And as you can see is is pretty happy sitting on my lawn chairs. However, he does not like Sophie at all.

I really don't plan on doing much today because somehow I have hurt my back. It started hurting Thursday morning and yesterday morning I could barely move. S has instructed me to do nothing unpacking...nothing. She told me to just lay on the couch and enjoy my cable TV again. The only thing I will do is run up to Walmart to get some groceries.

When I went to pick up the keys for the house yesterday my landlord had made me cookies to welcome me to the town. I thought that was very sweet. Last night S and I went out to dinner at a restaurant that I noticed the first time we came to town. It's called "Wagon Wheel" and I thought it just looked like a fun restaurant. Well, I was right. It was so good and has the typical country food. We both ate for under $20 which isn't too bad for a sit down restaurant.

I am happy, S is happy and the babies are happy. Life is very good.

I am home!!

I will do a more detailed post tomorrow, but I wanted to let everyone know I arrived (as well as all my belongings and the babies) to my new town. When I got here I hooked up my digital box converter and there was nothing. It couldn't pick up on any channels. So I called the cable company hoping that they could squeeze me in. They were wonderful and were here within an hour.

I HAVE CABLE TV AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, S is on her way here right now and then we are going to get some dinner and then I will probably crash.

More tomorrow.....

See you in Oz

I am exhausted!!

Today has been a very busy day. My last day at work was wonderful and I feel really loved by all my old co-workers. I went out to lunch with the managers to one of our favorite places and it was soooo good.

After I left work I went and got a haircut, went to Walmart, turned in my modem (I am using the wireless from my complex), went and picked up my fridge (thanks again Amy) and then went back to work to pass the fridge onto the the tech that is helping me move. All of that has made me exhausted. I was going to do my laundry tonight, but I am way too tired. It will have to wait until after I moved.

My moving crew will be here tomorrow at 8am and we should be in my new town by noon. So that means I should be completely unloaded in my new house by 2pm. I can't wait to get settled. S is coming over after work and I can't wait to see her. It's going to be the best weekend.

My Internet will be installed on Monday, as well as my cable. I will never take cable for granted again. I have not watched a Little House episode in weeks and I am going through serious withdrawals.

As I was typing this I got a call on my cell phone and I didn't recognize the number and guess what???? It was work. Um, yea, I don't work there anymore. I got a call last night at 11pm and I thought to myself, "it will be so nice not having to take calls late at night or the middle of the night or the weekends."

Well, I am going to eat some dinner (thanks to Redfrog I have been craving Taco Bell) and then break the bad news to the cats that we are going on a very long car ride tomorrow.

See you guys when I get to Oz.

Less than 48 hours

Oh my less than 48 hours I will be in my new home. I can't believe that the day is almost here. My entire apartment is packed up; except for my clothes for tomorrow and my bathroom stuff. Bonk is running around jumping on the different boxes like she is conquering something. Every time she jumps on top of one of the boxes she lets out a loud meow.

Of all the pets I am the least worried about Bonk. I think she has a little bit of dementia, so I really don't think she will notice the difference. When we moved into this apartment she acted like she has always lived here. She still loves to run, so I know she will enjoy running from the bedrooms and into the living room. I also think Sophie will do just fine once we get the car ride over with. And I know she is going to love having her own yard again. And I know that I am going to really love not having her eat crap that is laying around the dumpsters in my complex.

And then there is Ben. Oh my poor Ben. He is going to freak out when I put him in the bathroom while my things are being moved out of this apartment. And then there will be the trauma of being put in the kennel and the car ride. The longest car ride he has had was about 40 minutes. I hope he will forgive me.

Sophie has been eating the same food for the last couple of years and you can only get it at Petsmart or Petco. Well, my little town doesn't have one, so I decided to switch her food to something I could just get at Walmart. Last night I stopped and picked up some food for her and she loves her new food. Usually when I feed her the food will sit there for a couple of hours and then she will go over and eat it. Last night when I put the food in her bowl she went crazy and ate it up in about 5 minutes. I think she likes her new food, but the change in food has given her the worst gas. Gah...I hope it's gone by Friday because I am not sure if I could handle being in the car with a gassy dog for 3 hours.

Tomorrow is my last day at work. The thought of walking out of there makes me sad. My entire office is packed up and most of my belongings are in the trunk of my car. I hope I like my new job as much as I have loved this job.

Tomorrow on my way home from work I am turning in my modem, so that means no Internet at home. I will probably carry my laptop up to the clubhouse to check blogs and do a quick post. I won't have Internet at home (unless I can tap into someones wireless Internet) until Monday. My friend L is being induced on Monday (unless she goes into labor sooner which is a very good possibility) and I told her Monday is going to be a wonderful day because she will have her baby and I will get cable again. Yay!!!!!

Today was my potluck at work. It was a lot of fun and there was some really good food. I was sent home with a lot of the leftovers and I am trying to figure out how I am going to eat it all before Friday. One of my techs made me a separate cake. I think I am going to save it for Friday and serve it to my moving crew after we get moved. The potluck was a Wizard of Oz theme and they had the movie playing on CD during the lunch. I had to confess to everyone that I have never seen that movie. Most people are shocked when they hear that, so I guess I need to add it to my Netflix list. I was born in Kansas and lived there for the first 22 years of my life, so I have no idea why I never watched it. I am sure the church had something to do with it. :)

Here is some of the food that was there:
See what I mean...yummy food. I ate too much and felt sick for rest of the afternoon. But it was so worth it.

So I am getting reeeeally excited for Friday. I think I get even more excited (if that is possible)when I hear how excited S is. Look at the smile on my face:
This is a picture of someone that is about to see all her dreams come true.

Fix You

This song (I tried to put the video on my blog, but copyright laws won't let me) has always spoken right to my heart. As I was driving up to see S yesterday I put in one of the CD’s I made and this song came on and I immediately went back to when I first started working at my current job. Songs have always been a way for me to remember experiences or different time periods in my life and this song is the song I listened to constantly right when I started my job.

When I think back to the person I was when I walked in the front door on that first day, I am truly amazed. I have become a more confident person and a person that is really happy with herself. Yes, I think S has a lot to do with that, but I think even more then S, my job played a huge role in helping me heal and grow into a better person. Because of all the support and love I received from those I work with I think I became a better person and that helped me be in a perfect place when S came into my life.

I was broken when I started my job. I felt like I was completely alone in the world and I had no idea where my life was headed. But the minute I started my job I felt like I had a purpose again. I felt like I finally found someplace that I belonged. I felt needed for the first time in months.

My co-workers have become my friends and a few of them have become like family to me. One of my co-workers has a thing in her office that says, “I could not love you more if you had been born into my family.” Every time I am in her office and I see that I wonder if she realizes that is how I feel about her? They have challenged me, they have made me fight when I thought I had no more strength, they invited me into their own families and made me feel welcome and most importantly they made me feel like I mattered in this world.
Now when I hear this song I don’t think about all the bad stuff I went through two years ago, instead of I think of my job and the people I met at my job that helped fix me.

Where it all Began

Today S and I met up at her house that is halfway between our two homes. She wanted to check on it since we have got a lot of snow last weekend and then lots of rain this weekend. All was well with the house which was great. We are both really hoping the market gets better this spring and it will sell. Pulling up to the house I had lots of memories come back. This was where we met for our first date and we had our first kiss in this house. I remember driving up there for our first date and how nervous I was, but the minute I saw S I was no longer nervous and felt so comfortable around her from the very start.

Wednesday we will celebrate 7 months as a couple. I think we will save the celebration for Friday night.

As I was waiting for S to get to the house today this bird was sitting on the fence:
I look forward to putting up bird feeders at my new house. I know the cats will be entertained by the bird feeders.

Guess who I got to see today:
As you can see from this picture she was very excited to see me.

I am pretty tired tonight and don't think there will be a problem with me falling asleep. I am looking forward to this coming week, even though I know parts are going to be very sad.

One Last Trip

Boy has this time change messed me up. I went to bed at 11:30 and just laid there. I could not fall asleep and was actually up when the clocks went forward one hour. I guess my lesson is: never take a nap the day before the clocks move forward. Sophie then got me up at 6:30 to go outside. That is her normal time to get up, so obviously she wasn't aware that we lost an hour of sleep. I should also add that while I was unable to sleep she was sound asleep (and snoring) right beside me. At about 1am I got on the computer to see if that would help me become sleepy and I ended up signing up to Twitter. I was hesitant to sign up for it because I knew it would become another addiction. We'll see. If you are on Twitter and want to follow me, I have put Twitter on my sidebar.

This morning I make my last trip from Kansas City to see S. The drive is nice, but I won't really miss it. Every time I ask S if she is excited for me to move her response it, "I think I am more excited then you."

Have a great Sunday and hope you didn't have as hard of time with this time change as I did.

Saying Goodbye

Today I had lunch with one of my best friends. It was sad when we had to say goodbye, but she made it very clear that she is so happy for me. She said that it was so nice to see my happy and that after all I have been through it's about time that something good happen to me. I couldn't agree more with her.

It was two years ago today that Laura told me she was going to St. Louis for a business meeting and she would be gone all weekend. As many of you know, she was lying to me and instead was going to meet a mutual friend of ours. This friend and Laura had been talking for months and whenever I would say something about the two of them talking a lot, Laura would say things like, "I need to have friends" and "I can't spend 24/7 with you", etc. I remember working hard to support this new friendship (other then Sharon, Laura had no friends) and it wasn't until that weekend that I realized Laura had been lying to me for months. Here we were planning our commitment ceremony and she was talking to another woman at least 6 or 7 hours a day. I often times will wonder how I didn't see this, but Laura was really sneaky. She would say she was going to the gym, but I now know she was leaving the house and going somewhere so they could talk. After we broke up I looked at our cellphone usage and she talked with Sharon for 2800 minutes that last month. At the time I thought my life was devastated, but what I wish I knew at the time was how much of a blessing it actually was.

So here I sit two years later and I can't believe how good my life is now. S is so much more then Laura ever was. I really never knew that love could be this good. Every morning when I wake up I am thankful that she is in my life and I look forward to waking up next to S and telling her face to face how thankful I am for her.

This coming week I will be saying a lot of goodbyes and I think it will be a time of a lot of reflection. I am going to try to take in everything that happens this week and keep in mind that on Friday I get a second chance to make my life exactly what I have always wanted it to be.

Friday, March 06, 2009


Poor Sophie has been feeling so insecure lately. I really think she is afraid that I am going to leave her in the middle of the night. Doesn't she realize that I could never go anywhere without her?

This June Sophie will be 11. It's hard to believe that I have had her this long, but I also can't imagine her not in my life. It's hard for me to think that she is getting older and not able to do as much as she used to. S and I were talking about all the walks we will go on and I had to remind her that Sophie is older and she can't go as far. Last spring when I went walking with MJ, we walked about 3 miles and it was so hard on Sophie. She slept for 2 days after that. That was a hard walk and I swore that MJ was trying to kill me as well. :)

Yesterday I went home at lunch because I needed to get a new contact and Sophie was so excited to see me. I laid down on the bed for a few minutes and she came up and cuddled with me. Sophie does not like to cuddle but when I go home in the middle of the day she loves to cuddle. At my new job I will have an hour lunch and I will be just about 5 minutes from home. Sophie will be getting lots of cuddling time once I move.

Speaking of moving...a week from now I should be all moved in. S is coming over right after work and plans on spending most of the weekend with me. My cable/Internet will not be in until Monday, so I may have Lynilu put an update on my blog. You wouldn't mind Lynilu would you? I am not too worried about not having cable/Internet for 3 days because I am pretty sure S will keep me entertained. :)

Today is my last Friday at work. A couple of my co-workers have been teasing me about the potluck on Tuesday. I guess the entire building is invited. It's going to be weird having so many people there just for me. The co-worker I was talking to this morning said I will love what they are planning. Huh....I am really curious now.

My house is all boxed up and my office is all boxed I just wait for next Friday to get here.

Thursday, March 05, 2009

All I have to Say.....

8 days.

Enough said.

Since I don't have anything noteworthy to say tonight, you might go over and check out Lynilu's latest post. She cracks me up.

Another Message

Another day closer to my move and another message on my board. I need to start wearing something that shows how many days I have left at work because every time I pass someone in the hall or they come to my office the first thing they say to me is, "How many days?" The other popular thing to ask me is, "Are you excited?" Most can tell from the constant smile on my face that I am indeed very excited.

I think Sophie is getting very nervous. For the last week or so she is getting me up 2-3x a night to go outside. I don't know if she is afraid that I will sneak out of here in the middle of the night without her, but she is making sure she knows where I am all the time. The cats are also wanting extra attention and by bedtime I am usually making them get off my lap because I do need a little space.

Last night I was all ready for bed and then decided to check something out on Youtube. Bad idea. I ended up staying up way past my bedtime watching old episodes of You Can't Do That On Television. As I sat and watched the episodes I wondered why I ever liked the show. Talk about stupid. And then I came across this clip. How many of you remember this at the beginning of all movies on HBO? It was a nice trip down memory lane.

So....tell me what's new with you.

Final Countdown

This afternoon someone wrote this on my door. I thought it was cute. About 5 minutes after I took this picture someone erased it. I asked the person why they erased it and they said, "We are not suppose to celebrate the fact that you are leaving." It is sad that I am leaving so many great co-workers, but every time I get sad about leaving all I have to think about is my new life with S and I can't help but smile.

I don't remember a time when I have been so excited and happy about something. This move is huge for me, but surprisingly I am not too stressed at all. Money will be very tight for the first couple of weeks, but even that I am not too worried about. I know it will all work out. The fact that I will be using a dorm size fridge for probably a month or so is not big deal for me. It will all be good.

Next Tuesday one of the units at my work is having a Potluck for me and the theme will be "The Wizard of Oz". I thought that was really cute and can't wait to see what they come up with.

I guess that's about it for today. For those of you tired of reading about how excited I am about moving, etc....You might stop reading for a couple of weeks. I have a feeling that the only thing I will be writing for the next couple of weeks is my upcoming move. I am so excited!!!!

Yesterday I did absolutely nothing. I slept for most of the day and just didn't feel like doing anything. It didn't help that when I woke up it was cold and snowy outside. I did manage to make it out around 3pm to rent the movie Changeling. It was just OK. It was really long and when the movie was done I decided I needed another nap. It was nice doing nothing yesterday.

Today I got to see S and of course that made me very happy. She's like this ray of sunshine in my life and really makes me realize how loved I am. I told her today that I am lucky because my best friend is also the love of my life. She is so good to me and for me.

Today we decided that her cat, Miss Kitty, really needs to be around other cats. Miss Kitty is young and full of energy and needs someone to play with. My Ben is also fairly young and tries all the time to play with Bonk who really isn't up to playing. So about a week after I move Miss Kitty, who has now been re-named Molly, will come live with me. I think it will be good for Ben to have someone young that he can run around with and chase. I thought it would be a good idea to allow my babies about a week to adjust to the new place and then we will bring Molly home. I can't wait.

Oh and the best part about Molly....she is a total diva and loves to have her picture taken:

This is my favorite picture of her:

She is going to fit in perfectly with my little family.
