I have found that I am more expressive with writing than talking so I'm taking it to my blog. It's 11:22 pm and I can't sleep so bare with me if this doesn't make sense.

I have been feeling very under appreciated lately. Not just by one or two people, but by a lot of people--friends, family. I have a very select group of friends that I keep near and dear to me. The rest of my friends only call when they need something or something so very dramatic is happening that they want everyone to know. I'm tired of one sided friendships. I'm tired of male friends trying to cross the friendship line with me. I'm tired of male friends telling me they have feelings for me then treating me like total garbage. I'm tired of "family" members (friends that are so close they're like family) forgetting about me even when I'm waving the red flag that says "help me, I need you".

I've decided that I just need to fend for myself. I need to stop relying on others. If I want something or something needs to be done or if I'm being mistreated (in my mind) I'm going to remedy the problem. I'm tired of waiting on others. I can't wait anymore for anyone! There is no reason! While I wait for you, my life keeps moving. My life needs to move in the direction thats best for me, not in the direction that's best for me while I wait for you.

I am 24 years old. I am a mom. I am college educated. And I support myself. I don't need anyone. If you're in my life it's because I want you there. I love my friends and family but it's time to cut the cords. I love talking with my friends (even you crazy ones lol) and bitching with them. I love my family/"family" dearly. But honestly, I'm done with the crap. Your crap is your crap. I'll listen and I'll give my advice (if you want it) but I'm not going to fix it. I have my own crap to fix.

Okay, I'm done...this may not make sense but give me a break...I've got Nyquil in my system, it's late and I'm mad LOL

PS: Thanks Nicole for letting me talk things out with you on your drive home a few minutes ago :)

Why Men Marry Bitches...

Have I ever mentioned that I seem to be a doormat to guys?? I'm very much your typical nice girl that bends over backwards for anyone without ever thinking about me. I'm very much the people pleaser and I want everyone to be happy.

I came across the book Why Men Marry Bitches and wow. That's all I can say. I'm thoroughly impressed. Technically you don't need to be a "bitch". It's hard to explain. But it was a great book and I will no longer be a doormat!

Oh, and for those of you that don't know: only 26 days til Cali!!! Woo hoo!!!

Sneeze, Sneeze and sn--breathe

I have been sneezing twice in a row with the feeling wanting to sneeze a third time but it gets stuck. I've been hit with the cold bug...again. I was sick right before I left for VA and now I've got the cruds again. Blech...

On a lighter note I've decided I needed a life makeover. I'm looking to get out of CO and head back to the great city of San Diego. I miss it there. I've started the job search for out there (while I maintain the search for CO in the mean time).

While I'm unemployed I've decided that I'm gonna get back in shape (for like the 100th time) and I joined 24 Hour Fitness. They had a killer deal and the cute guys weren't bad to look at :)

I'm off to die...I mean to lay on the couch and watch Ugly Betty.

Ah Virginia

Well as most of you know, CJ and I traveled to Virginia to see my friend Curt. We had a blast. We walked everywhere, road boats, played video games and ate as much food as possible!

Is it bad that I miss Curt? Cause I do. I want to see him again soon. He'll be back in CO for a few days in May for a wedding. Maybe I'll have to go visit him again soon...

Anyway, he received some good news today. His orders might be Camp Pendleton, CA. Woo-hoo!!! I'm so excited. I could just bust! I hope he gets San Diego because is the best place ever LOL I was stationed there and honestly couldn't have asked for a cooler place :) Plus, it'll be more fun to go see him!


In other news, I cleaned out all my scrapbooking stuff. I have a ton that I don't want. Seriously, it's alot. Anyone want it? I'll just give it to you! Do you know where I could dispose of it? I don't want to throw it away...hmmmm


CJ, wow CJ. He never ceases to amaze me. The one day he doesn't have to get dressed for school he throws a fit and wants to get dressed. In real clothes. It's pajama day at school...what kid doesn't love pajama day?? Mine obviously LOL

Look what I got!!!

I have been in a fabulous mood all day...I think it's only going to get better...but anyway...

I have to thank LeeLou Blogs for this cute cute cute layout. This is one of their premade layouts but I love this one! Head on over and check them out! And don't forget to attend the baby shower!

The hills are alive with the sound of music....

...well, not really but that's how I feel right now! I want to go prance along the hills and through the neighborhood. I have my tickets! Yay yay yay!

Even though they were $100 more than they would have been a couple days ago I was still able to nab them. I'm sooo excited! I have even prepaid for my airport parking! How amazing is that? I love the internet....

It's early...well for me anyway. It's about 6:20 am and I'm sleepy. I'm trying to make travel arrangements and nothing is getting done easily. I can't find a flight without a bazillion connections. I can't pay with it all on one card (thank you daily limits). Hotels near the base are annoyingly expensive...yada yada yada. Why can't something that's supposed to be fun also be painless?? Is this a sign a shouldn't go??

Go where you might be asking. Well, long story short, I'm head to Portsmouth, Virginia for Valentine's Day weekend. My friend, Curt, is stationed out there :) It was going to be a surprise. I was just gonna show up, but that's been a lot harder that I imagined.

I am not familiar with the area at all. I'll have my son with me and needed to know where to avoid. Do I really need a rental car? Is he on duty that weekend or working? Yes, I used to be prior Navy and I know that I always got duty at the most inconvenient times, so it was a worry of mine. I had to tell him that I was indeed coming out there.

CJ's excited for the airplane ride but I had already told him that for his bday he'd go on an airplane to Disneyland. He thinks that this is that time. I explain it's not and he doesn't get it. I'm in deep doo doo LOL

Wish me luck ladies on surviving this travel booking adventure. Then keeping myself healthy and un-injured so I can leave the 13th! Yay me!!

God Bless!

School, School, don't be late...

Remember that rhyme from playing jump rope at school? Well, that's one of the hundreds we used to sing. I couldn't think of a clever headline (well, none of them are ever clever!).

I just had to brag to everyone...I got a B on my first Nutrition test! Woo hoo! I'm so pumped :) Hopefully I stay motivated til at least March when I get spring break then will come back refreshed and ready to go til May :)
