I have a majority of my stuff in my room now, but I'll still be sleeping on the couch for at least one more night, maybe two. I want to wash my sheets, blanket, pillow cases, etc before I sleep on the futon. I also need to get a couple new pillows because the ones I have are pretty much trash {meaning they're pretty darn flat.}

I can't find my stereo remote though. I know exactly where I packed it, but someone took the box I had all the stuff in. And no one is confessing. At this point, I don't give a shit who took the box, I just want to know where the fuck they put my stuff. I can't browse radio stations without the remote. I'm pretty sure I know who did it and it pisses me off even more that they won't tell me. Fuck! I don't really have the time to go through the entire fucking garage to find a 3in remote. But I can't live without the stereo. Yes, I could play CDs, but every time I wanted to stop it, I'd have to go over and manually stop it. Not a good thing when you're in a rush. Damnit.

Anywho, I don't have a lot to talk about. I work quite a bit this week. Nothing special though. No plans for this weekend; I have to work the whole weekend.

Ugh! I'm so pissed right now. And before this turns into a rant, I think I'll end it here.

Holy hell, I've been busy. And it's not over yet.

Yesterday morning, I got up and went out running errands with ma. I'll spare you the details, it's nothing special. Yesteday evening, however, was cool.

It was the first hockey game that I had ever attended. Hell, it was the first hockey game that I had ever watched. UNLV vs BYU. BYU won, but I wasn't really rooting for any team. My sister's choir was there to sing the national anthem which is why I went in the first place. After watching part of the first quarter, I decided that I'd just stay for the rest of the game. {btw, some of the guys on at least the UNLV team, were pretty hot}

I'm glad I stayed. Even though I really didn't know what was going on, I was facsinated. If UNLV ever plays U of A, I'll have to go to the game. The reason: UNLV is the college that everyone out here roots for. U of A is the college that I'd have rooted for when I live in Tucson. I still wouldn't be really rooting for one team or the other, but I'd love to see that game.

This is all Stuart's fault. I never payed even the slightest bit of attention to hockey before I met Stuart. Since then, I still have no idea what's going on in the game, but I've not been able to even see "hockey" on the TV guide without thinking of him. And now that I've been to a game, I'm quite interested. Ugh! Damn Stuart.

Today I worked from 10am to just after 5pm. I got barely any of the section of wall I was working on because I was up at the register the whole time. The lines just never ended. As soon as we were caught up, the lines would suddenly get long again. It was crazy!

I have to be at work at 1am. Once I get off tomorrow {at 9:30am} I'm going to come home and pass out. I do plan on sleeping for a few hours before I have to go in, but I need more than that if I want to function more than past tomorrow.

Alright, I can't think of what else to write. I'll write again hopefully soon.

Gosh, I've not been around the 'Tang much lately. I've been working and when I'm not been working, I've been painting. Or out doing stuff.

I pop in every now and then, but not really long enough to be around. I see I've gone down two spots in the most active. I guess that's good because it means I'm not on here all the time, but I do like to stay in the top 5. Oh well. Maybe I'll get back up there in my next couple days off.

Anywho, I'm almost done painting. I have all the walls done. I still need to do the trim and the doors {the room door and the closet door.} I'm just going to do those white. This way there'll be some contrast in the room. I'll be taking a picture of the walls for my friend to see; I might post it here.

So my day of rest wasn't really a day of rest. I slept till noon, though. That was nice. But once I got up, I started painting. I was painting for about 4 hours. See, our house is angled so just the two side walls are one level height. The front and back walls are angled up as you go in towards the middle of the house. I'm, by no means, afraid of heights, but that ladder sucked. I'm glad I'm finished with the ladder.

It looks like I'll be getting a snake. I'll have to sneak it in and hide it because my mom hates snakes and doesn't want them in her house. That's why Lori and Tony's snake is at Tony's house. I'll be babysitting it for a while because Lori's friend got kicked out of his house and doesn't want to lose the snake. So my sister asked if I wanted to watch it for a while until he can get into a place. I have no problem with it, but as I said, I'll have to sneak it in and hide it.

Everyone at my job seems to like me and how I work. It's a good thing because that means I have a better chance of them keeping me once the season is over.

Tomorrow is payday; I'll be getting my futon tomorrow too. Tomorrow evening I'll be going to my first hockey game. I don't follow hockey, nor am I really interested it the sport, but my sister's choir will be singing the national anthem at the game. Besides, if we bought the tickets through through the choir, they were only $2. It should be fun. And I'll be able to talk about it with Stuart.

Damn ... I actually started this entry at 6:30, but then dinner was ready and afterwards I took a shower so I completely forgot that I was writing this. Also, I've completely forgotten what my train of thought was from before. And now too.

Alright, I'm done. Till next time.

painting: part 2
Tuesday. 11.13.07 6:59 pm
So instead of laying down for a couple hours after work today, I went in my room and started painting some more. I'm really tired right now, but because my hair is soaking wet, I can't lay down for at least 3 hours.

I got a little less than half my room done. I really like the color. My sister doesn't, but that's okay, it's not her room. While I was at work, my sister got some of the edge work done. I was able to paint in those areas. Tomorrow after work, I'm gonna get in there and paint some more. Hopefully, I can finish tomorrow, but I'm not sure.

Thursday and Friday I'm off work. Thursday I would like to go get my futon, but I'm thinking about just waiting till Friday since I have to go up to work anyway. I like the idea of getting paid every week. I'm really hoping to be able to sleep in my room on Friday night, but with the way my schedule is, I'm not sure I'll be able to get all the painting done by then. That's okay, though, because with me being able to sleep on my own bed, I might not want to get up the next morning and I have to work on Saturday. I'll just have to see how it goes.

I feel gross. I've gained weight slowly since I've been back and now none of my clothes fit me. It's a disgusting feeling. I was thinking that with me working again, I'd lose the weight from the effort I have to put forth, but no, not the case. Once I get some money saved up, I'll start buying my own food. Back to my diet of lean pockets and frozen dinners. I seemed to be maintaining a lower weight when I was eating less.

Anywho, I'm done for tonight. Till tomorrow.

did I mention my wedding?
Sunday. 11.11.07 9:52 pm
Yep, you read that right. Today was supposed to be my wedding day. The happiest day of my life. But the relationship fell apart. Besides, I was only 17 years old; I had no idea what I was doing. I'm glad that it fell apart because I would have never experienced living on my own as I did. I would not be where I am today if I had stayed with him. Yes, I would have loved to have been getting married today, but I'm glad that I'm not.

Anywho, the real title of this entry is "painting: part 1."

We started to cover up the Wal-Mart blue color with a very light grey primer so that the dark grey paint will cover it easily. We got most of the room primered, but it's getting late and we're both tired. It will be continued {and finished} tomorrow. Then we let the primer dry for a day before we start the actual painting. Once the dark grey paint has been finished, we let it dry for a day. The final step will be doing the trim and painting the door. Both will be white. This way I'll have some contrast in the room. Hopefully I'll have the room finished, dry and will be able to start moving my stuff into it by this weekend. *fingers crossed*

My hands are sore from holding the paint handle and putting pressure on it so that I can squeeze as much paint out of the roller as possible. I don't want to have to buy another can of primer.

One of the downfalls to painting is that it's messy. I've managed to get paint on my arms, face, legs and feet. I was able to get most of the paint off my arms and all of it off my face, but I'm going to get in the shower to get the rest of it.

Alright, I think that's it for tonight. Here's to painting tomorrow ... and to my would-be wedding day!

Ugh, I'm so tired right now and I need to be at work in about 9 hours, but my hair is still too wet to sleep on. And don't suggest using a blow dryer, I don't have one.

Today was a fairly busy day. I got to work at 9, took a 15 minute break halfway through my shift and came home at 2. My leg was bothering me a bit towards the end of the shift, but that's becasue I've been sitting doing nothing the last few days. I had an imense headache though. It kind of outweighed the pain in my leg. I still have the headache, but it's subsided some.

After work, I got home and helped Steve and Jean move more of Jean's stuff over to her apartment. Bringing her couch and loveseat up the stairs was a bitch. I'm glad I don't have to do that again. The entertainment center is pretty big, but it comes apart into three sections so it should be easier and less awkward than the couches. Stairs suck regardless of what you're bringing up them though.

The bedroom is completely empty except for the cable box, which is staying in the room. The only thing that's still in the room that's Jean's is the extra curtain thing that she has on the window. It's not necessary for me to have, so she can take it whenever she wants. I will be starting to paint the room tomorrow. Yay! I'm excited. I cleaned the floor tonight. I got down on my hands and knees with paper towels and Fantastik {yes, it's spelled that way} and cleaned the whole floor. Then I took the last Swiffer Wetjet pad that we had and did another speep/mop of the floor. I don't think it's 100% clean, but it'll do for now.

In the next few days I'll be going up to work to pick up my futon. I'll be moving my TV, the cabinet thing that I have it on, my stereo and some of my totes into my room on the same day. Most likely Thursday since I have off that day. I also want to buy a moon chair to put in the corner and maybe a desk, if I have the money and the room. It's basically going to be a smaller version of the living/bedroom area I had at my apartment. I'm even thinking about putting a couple of my totes together in the middle of my room, getting a cloth tablecloth, draping it over them and making a sort of makeshift coffee table. It all depends, though, on how much room I'll have and how much money I'm able to spend.

Alright, I think this entry is long enough. I'm also too tired, I have no idea what else to say. I'll write again tomorrow.
