I am a bit out of it with a stuffy nose and I am really to go to bed any time now.
But of course, not with out my posting! I am going to feature half of my 101 in 1001 “to-do” list.
Here’s the quick lowdown:
101 goals to accomplish in 1,001 days. That is roughly 2.75 years. Here are my goals that I am created to a slightly more positive, joyful and successful life.

START DATE: JUNE 4TH, 2009

END DATE:MARCH 3RD, 2012

001. GET A NEW TATTOO. AKA tattoo #4. This is going to help create the “sleeve” I have decided to have on my upper left arm.
002.MAIL IN A SECRET TO http://postsecret.blogspot.com/. If you have read any of the other thousands of 101/1001, you may have already noticed most people have added this to their list, too.

003. GET TEETH WHITENED. Because it couldn’t possibly be a bad thing.

004. DO A PHOTOSHOOT. With the children.

005. FINISH THE “HARRY POTTER” BOOK SERIES. Books 6 & 7 left to read!

006. GO TO A MUSIC CONCERT. Nope, never been to one in my life! This is preferably with an artist that I really like, i.e.Kanye West?!

007. BAKE COOKIES FROM SCRATCH. Honestly, I am not the best cook when it comes to baking/desserts. Let’s work on perfecting this one though, shall we?

008. CREATE A 50 BOOKS LIST TO READ. Then read.

009. LEARN TO DO YOGA, PERFORM AT LEAST 2X A WEEK.

010. OBTAIN THE STARBUCKS MEMBERSHIP CARD. It’s $25 dollars a year, but it’s probably well worth the small cost, for I am a starbucks addict that drinks at least 4 times a week.

011. VISIT AN ART MUSEUM. (Never been as of yet)

012. LEARN TO COOK 30 NEW RECIPES.

013. KISS IN THE RAIN.

014. GO TO A PRO FOOTBALL GAME.

015. WATCH FIVE OF AFI’S 100 MOVIES. See the complete listing at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AFI%27s_100_Years…_100_Movies

016. 30 BLOG POSTS IN 30 DAYS. Exactly what I am doing now, so far…

017. GET MARRIED.

018. COMPLETE A 1,000 PIECE PUZZLE.

019. LIST 100 ALL TIME FAVORITE SONGS EVER.

020. “KEEP THE CHANGE” CHALLENGE. Any change that I obtain from the day I will keep in my son’s piggie bank. Simple as that.

021. TRY OUT FIVE COMPLETE NEW RESTAURANTS.
022. GET ONE OF THOSE MINI LAP TOPS.
023.PUT PINK HAIR EXTENTSIONS IN FOR A DAY.

024. PUT AWAY A DOLLAR A DAY INTO SAVINGS ACCOUNT.

025. LEARN TO PLAY THE PIANO.

026. SEE A COMEDY SHOW.

027. MAKE A MAGAZINE CLIPPINGS NOTEBOOK. To me, this is fun & relaxing. It’s great to reflect on old magazine photos too.

028. 365 A DAY LIST-REASONS I LOVE MY OTHER HALF. This should be interesting, eh?

029. VISIT A VINTAGE STORE AND PURCHASE AN OUTFIT.

030. READ EVERY BOOK IN THE BIBLE.

031. START (AND HOPEFULLY, FINISH) MEDICAL TRANSCRIPTION/CODING TRAINING.

032. BE A GUEST ON ELLEN’S TALK SHOW.

033. MAKE A JAR FULL OF PAPER STARS. Say what? This is what I’m talking about: http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1256/1169466440_4ddedcbf83.jpg

034. LIST 25 I LOVE ABOUT…ME!

035. HAVE 30 UNCONSECUTIVE CAFFEINE FREE DAYS. Okay, I am a caffeine-a-holic. 30 unconsecutive days is a real push, trust me.

036. CREATE A ONE YEAR PHOTO ALBUM OF SON.

037. GET WISDOM TEETH PULLED OUT. 1 down, 3 to go. Wish me luck!

038. WRITE A POSITIVE NOTE ON A DOLLAR BILL FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD.

043. WRITE A LETTER TO MY DAD.

044. GET A MASSAGE.

045. GAIN 1 NEW GREEN HABIT A MONTH.

046. DONATE TO A CHARITY. Charity to be determined.

047. GO TO A STRIP CLUB. Yep, you read that right. #1 reason: to get a laugh out of it. It can’t be that sexy.

048. CREATE A RECIPE BOOK, ADD A NEW RECIPE EACH WEEK.

049. BUY TWO BOOKS A MONTH FOR THE CHILDREN’S COLLECTION.

050. PURCHASE A PEDOMETER.

I am stoked to start my goals! Part two comes tommorrow!

I am off to bed now, hopefully this mini cold is on it’s way out!

001-

June 1, 2009 at 9:48 pm (Family, Life) (, , , )

Here’s to number one of thirty wonderful posts! Good luck to me! I am so ready to go!
30 in 30 is truly a challenge for me, because I do work and take care of my 5 month old son, and my fiancee hasn’t married me and allowed me to stay at home full time and bought me a brand new BMW (well, he never sees her anyway so I guess it’s take the money and don’t ever see your hubby for her, but whatever!)
Oops, did I say too much?
Another day, another dollar. Work went as usual. I slaved and I scheduled. I prevailed because I set the most appointments! Yep, that’s my job. The appointment setter.
Hubby & I are currently watching the MTV Movie Awards on TiVo. The annoying part: all awards (well, pretty much!) went directly to the cast of Vampire movie “Twilight.” I haven’t had the opportunity to watch it yet, and I am already annoyed. The best part: Eminem getting butt flashed! Was he really upset about it or was it just a joke?

I personally am more of a music fan over movies, so I’ll be more in tune with the music awards later this year. I admit it,  I am a bubblegum pop, Top 40 type of fan. Silly sometimes, I know, but how can you not love the catchy music songs that you hear from artists like Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, and Kanye West? Oh yeah!
I apologize for the lack of an interesting blog topic. i am so anxious to be able to do my 30 in 30 blogging goal. I suppose I will let this post slide for not having a topic. But this is how my day went. Thanks for listening ( I mean, reading, ha) and have a good night!

His Parents

May 31, 2009 at 7:54 am (Family, Life) (, , , )

I hate to be a Negative Nancy over here, but I truly can’t help it.

You see, the fiance & I live with his parents. This wouldn’t be such a bad thing if his mom wasn’t a pyscho and his dad didn’t talk at me for 3 hours straight. I usually hear the same stories over and over again.

This past week I had asked his dad when he and his wife planned on moving over to Florida. I expected him to say something like, within a year.

“Oh, we’ll be out of here by the end of June or July,” he said.

WE meaning me, my wife, you, my son, and little Narcissus.

Yeah, apparently we are all moving to Florida.

And how does he plan on moving out there? Well, apparently he is part of some club (no idea what type) and they just held golfing tournament to raise money for Jep. Jep suffered a heart attack several years ago and underwent a heart transplant just over a year ago. Evidently now this club that he is part of held a fundraiser to raise money to help him move to be with his family in Florida. Acoording to Jep, he is unaware of how much money was finally raised but he is guessing it to be about 5 grand and that should be enough to move us all out there. His wife doesn’t work either because she can’t work anywhere that she has to meet a certain criteria, i.e., a certain sale number or dealing with people who need customer service. Must be real hard to be her. She has also gone out for attention by pretending she attempted suicide about 13 times now, been admitted to loony hospitals, per her husband, and also per her husband, the doctors at these psychiatric wards claim there is nothing they can do to help her. Note to those alike the Mrs: If you have “attempted” suicide 13 times, you are probably crazy and you need to either

  • get over yourself or
  • just pull the plug already

So me & my love (how do I love him after his crazy parents? Somehow he isn’t crazy. The only thing that makes him crazy is the fact that he supports his parents’ stupid behavior) were pretty pissed off with the fact that we’re expected to move with them within 2 months. This is because unlike the retired-too-early parents, we have commitments.

Honestly, I doubt that this fundraiser raised him that much money. What he says about it doesn’t even match up. Apparently, entrance to the tournament was like $1,000 per person. Okay, so if he assumes that they raised him 5 G’s, that would be 5 people who attended. That’s it? Who in their right mind has $1,000 to give away? Jep has never brought over a single friend to the home to visit. Who cares about hmi that much that they would spend that kind of money?

Another thing: we’re really moving that soon? Yeah right. According to KP, he’s been saying this for 5 years now. I hope that KP decides living here in California is better than with his parents in FL. I would seriously rather live in the tinest apartment with him and call it my own than have to be fake and live in a nice house with his parents.

So let’s all just watch and see if we/they REALLY move out within the next 8 weeks or so.

One a different yet similar subject, when I came home from work yesterday, Jep asked me if he knew if Kai made a strawberry milk drink in the kitchen earlier that morning befoer heading out to work. He had a whole story behind it. Let me provide the quick details:

  • The kitchen floor, counter, and dining table were completely covered in this strawberry goo mix.
  • He thought it was blood at first
  • He actually dug in the trash to show me a napkin that he used to wipe up the mess

I asked KP on our way to the store if he made that drink. He said no. I doubted that he did. I am pretty re that it was the mixed drink (you know, like kool-aid) that Jep made earlier that week and he probably took it out to pour a glass and he spilled some and he doesn’t remember doing it. The drink is a pinkish color. Jep likes to be overly dramatic so that is where the blood story came from. Here are some other ways he is over dramatic:

  • He said little Narcissus rolled over at 3 weeks old
  • N said “mama” at about 1 month
  • KP stood from his car seat when he was a month old (and got angry)
  • N says other words to him, like dad, dog, and grandma (YES, those exact words)
  • He can read the Chinese writing off of a decorative vase that they have in the living room

Funny right? My son STILL, at 5 months, doesn’t even hold his own bottle. Yet he can do those other things. AMAZING!

Here’s a bit about his wife:

She watches television all day long. I mean this when I say it. It’s soap opera day every day on her t.v. She hardly ever holds longer than a five minute conversation with me, but this is because due to her illness (according to her, of course) she cannot talk or cry. Although at least every other night she spends anywhere from half an hour to 60 minutes yelling on the phone to a family member…she has no life! What could she possibly have to talk about?? Oh, probably about how much she thinks that I’m crazy, I’m sure.

She’s also not the brightest blub in the pack when it comes to my child. On the carseat you can move the handle down so you can pull the kid safely out of the car seat, right? She doesn’t take the time to put it down, so she just pulls Narcissus out of it that way, and bumps his head a few times before successfully taking him out. See why I have problems with this woman??! Other things that bother me about her (trust me, you would feel the same way)

  • She has a reputation for burping the baby until the milk shoots out of his nose, which in turn upsets him (and she claims she doesn’t know how it happened!)
  • Not aware of how to put the harness on the dog to walk her
  • Does not know how to operate her iPod, so when she goes on her walk, someone has to do it for her
  • She has one apple martini once a week and claims she gets a hangover from drinking it about 1.5 hours later
  • I honestly cannot remember the last time she asked to just hold the baby. I’m gonna go with never. Seriously. I honestly do not think she cares about him. And im not yelling it at you, either.

That’s it for my rants. I had to write about it sometime or another. Don’t ge the wrong impression; I am a generally happy person! I work part time (something the mom “CAN’T” do, so that definitely makes me a better person!) I enjoy life, I hang out with my friends, I write. I have my frustrations like everyone else…and if you knew his parents, you would understand! If there is anyone out there with simlar stories, I would love to hear!

In The Beginning..of a New Blog Host, That Is.

May 27, 2009 at 7:24 pm (Family, Life) (, , )

I really, really wanted to convert over to wordpress from blogger. My experience from WordPress has been a lot more pleasant with WP.

So I finally have a genuine excuse to move: I lost all my info for my blog on Blogger!

R.I.P. Mommy Material. Welcome TFLO…!

Back to business…I just realized it has seriously been over one month I have blogged on anything..shame on me!

My week started out o.k., I suppose. I have one major thing to complain about:

WHY ON EARTH DID MY MIL BUY ANOTHER DOG???

Honestly, I am pissed. First of all, DP’s grandparents watch him while Daddy & myself are out at work. You really needed a 2nd dog to take care of, on top of your grandchild?

Another reason to rant: this lady has a rep for buying dogs and getting rid of them when she’s bored/annoyed/lazy with them. She gave away KP’s dog without advising him before, and she’s sold out one two other dogs because they were too much too handle. Shouldn’t you learn after giving the 1st dog away that you are too selfish to take care of a dog in the first place?

Woman, you drive me insane!

So let’s place bets on when she gives up on doggie #4. I say six months?

In other news, since my last blog post, let’s see what has occured:

  1. DP turned 5 months old. Currently 17 lbs, a huge little piggie at that.
  2. Went to Vegas to celebrate a bachelorette party. It was a travesty to say the least.
  3. Mother’s Day…got a camera to capture all of those important memories! Yay!

What? That’s it? That’s all I care to list, really.

Also, in June, stay tuned for my blogging challenge, 30 posts in 30 days! I am still brainstorming a few topics, but this should be good! Stay tuned!
