Well, my cookies didn't end up like I wanted them to. One, I didn't make enough cookies...and two, some of the cookies got all warped and melted looking (too much liquid in the dough or something on just those cookies)...
SO, since I didn't make enough cookies, I'm going to cheat and go to Safeway in the morning and buy me some oatmeal cookies and then just put them in plastic bags. Yeah, it sucks and it's a horrible way to do it, but seriously...my cookies were subpar! Safeway makes better cookies...and I can at least have cookies for everyone when I go to work tomorrow. Yeah yeah...what a cop out. If you want cookies, I'll make some and then send them your direction, courtesy of Safeway
Ugh...just sitting here, I'm getting horrible back pains again :( I don't know if it's how I'm sitting in my chair or what, but I'm going to go lay down for a little bit and hope that it goes away...
why am I up so early?
Sunday. 11.19.06 10:11 am
Okay, it's not that early...but it's Sunday and I really didn't sleep in much later than I usually do on a work day. I wake up at 6:30am Monday through Friday. I woke up at 7:30am yesterday and I forced myself to go to sleep for a few hours...well, here I am again today, I woke up at 7:30am. At that point, I was like fuck it...I'm up...I'll just start the day a little early. GRANTED, I went to bed at about 1:30am this morning, I didn't get as much sleep, but oh well...who needs sleep? I'll be getting even less of it when the baby comes, so haha...I don't think it'll be too bad. With Brian here, it'll be a lot easier because then we can take turns.
I really have to give credit to all the single parents out there who do it all alone. I think it takes courage and determination because, in all honesty, it takes 2 people to make a baby...it really takes 2 people to take care of a baby...and here they are doing it on their own. I mean, if we were meant to do it alone, don't you think that it would have been made so we could asexually reproduce? Yeah, I'm not going to get into that whole mess, but it's just something to think about.
But anyway, I was surfing around and I saw this website for something called Colorgenics. You basically pick from a series of colors and it will tell you your personality. I did it just for fun and the results were pretty accurate. I was a little surprised, but hehe...aren't we all. I think the thing about it that rang most true to me was this paragraph:
Conditions are rather confusing at this time. You would like to involved with a particular person or a particular situation butyou are holding back. You find it difficult to make a decision.
You are pretending that the situation around you doesn't matter, but the effort of trying to conceal your emotions and anxieties is resulting in untold stress. The existing situation is disagreeable. You feel unwanted and lonely and you would really like to associate with someone whose ideals are as high as your own. You want to be above the standard of mediocrity and this need to be needed and that need to need has almost become an obsession. You are trying to magnify the need into a compelling urge. You would really like to tell the world how great you are but no, you are holding back because you feel that your peers may treat you with contempt. This is a great pity because you have in fact a unique quality of character, but the continual restraint that you impose on yourself makes you suppress this need for others and you pretend you don't really care. You treat those who criticize you with contempt. However, to be honest, beneath this assumption of indifference you really long for the approval and esteem of others.
I can't say this paragraph is entirely true, but sometimes I do feel this way and it's probably pregnancy hormones or something. It sucks being here by myself sometimes and it's just me and the baby...and the baby just likes to kick me a lot, so he's not really any fun yet. Now, give it 2 months, and I'm sure he'll be here and the baby still won't be all that fun (changing diapers, crying, feeding, etc.), but at least he'll be here and I won't be SOOO lonely.
But yeah...other than that, I've just been sitting around. I'm going to look through that cookbook and figure out how much of what I'll need for these cookies that I'm making and go to the grocery store and get all the stuff for it. The recipe in the book makes 48 cookies, but in all actuality, it probably makes around 36 (I like big cookies!) and I think I'll probably need to make a triple batch. According to their thing, if I make a triple batch, I'll be making 144 cookies or so? That should be enough...oh, wait...that's a lot of cookies. I only have to make about 6 dozen cookies and that would make about 12 dozen cookies. UM, maybe I'll just do a double batch. 96 cookies should be enough to give 6 cookies per 12 people...lol...and then still have some left over. GOOD LORD...I'm an accounting clerk and I can't even do math...how pitiful!
Anyway, I think I've rambled on for long enough this morning. It's probably about time I got up and started to do something around here. I don't want to bother Melissa too early this morning, so I'll give it a couple of hours, but then I should get this baking going because I'll probably be baking the rest of the day *sigh*

I didn't get home until close to 10pm and I left my house at about 11am, so I was gone for a good 11 hours or so.
Didn't have much luck with birthday shopping for Brian's mom, but that's okay. We decided to get her flowers instead, so hopefully she likes those. You can't ever go wrong with flowers...
Other than that, I just bought a preggo shirt at the maternity store and then we bought some chocolate at the Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory. We got a Peanut Butter Avalanche (so good...marshmallows, coconuts, peanut butter, chocolate, peaniuts or something, all in a little bar looking thing), a Cherry Bomb (a cherry dipped in chocolate fudge...then dipped in chocolate), some truffles, Tiger Bark (chocolate with chocolate swirls), and we got a marzapan. Brian didn't like the marzapan...he thought it tasted like play-dough...hehe
Tomorrow (or today s ince it is almost 1am), I'm going to Melissa's to make oatmeal raisin cookies...yum yum! I will definitely be eating those while making those...lol
Anyway, it's late...and I'm tired...must go to sleep
Saturday. 11.18.06 11:48 am
I should probably go out and at least attempt to clean-up the backseat of my car as soon, a baby will have to be riding in the back seat and he's going to need somewhere to sit. Since I'm about 32 weeks, if the baby decided to pop out tomorrow, he'd be 2 months premature, however, he'd have an extremely good chance of surviving...so I suppose I should start to get ready before it's too late. I feel that it would be unlikely for him to all of a sudden come tomorrow, but you never know. It could very well happen *knock on wood*
What else is on my agenda today...
* Go to the Denver Public Library (the last time I was there was when I witnessed the gentleman watching his pornography in the middle of the library...I won't be staying around long enough to see if that happens again.
* Go shopping for Brian's mom's birthday present (her birthday was on Tuesday...and when I say that, I mean it has already passed...and no one at her house (not her son, not her husband) got her any birthday presents...SO, Brian feels bad and he wants to go get her something)
* Do some laundry (yes it has piled up again just like I said I didn't want it to...damn me)
* Do the dishes and clean the kitchen (ugh...I really don't want to do this)
* Finish my "thank-you" cards from my baby shower (I have extremely procrastinated if you can't tell...that baby shower was at about this time LAST MONTH, so I need to get crackin!!)
* V-E-G-E-T-A-T-E (I like this option the best)
Well...that should be all for today...what a busy day huh? Yeah, I might just morph it into the a busy weekend, but eh...the first priority is cleaning the damn car out though :( I really REALLY don't want to do that, but it has to be done...ugh...SUCKY
Here's a cute picture for you:
This is how I always imagined my mom's cow to look like. I guess when my mom graduated from high school, my grandpa (her dad) gave her a cow for her gift (they lived in a cow town) and my mom/grandpa named him Spunky and Spunky used to follow my grandpa around his farm like a dog. I'm sure Spunky was one of those brown cows because I think they eventually ended up butchering Spunky (this cow in the picture of a Holstein (I most likely mangled the spelling) and they're good for milk), but still...if you leave out that last part, and just imagine a baby cow following someone around a farm all day, it is cute :)
a nice surprise

they threw me a baby shower at work today...it was a nice surprise :) I now have lots of wipes and diapers and lots of bath goodies and lots of little teething toys :) I also got lots of clothes too, but I guess I'll still need lots and LOTS of clothes.
Anyway, I don't really have much else to type. After I'm done posting this, I'm going go watch Ghost Hunters (since I bought the DVD last night)...
AND...I leave you with some baby pictures of little border collie puppies! I remember when my Erita looked like this...she's still cute, but not as cute as she was when she was a puppy...hehe
Good morning cruel world...
Friday. 11.17.06 9:49 am
I'm ready for this week to be over with...is it over yet? Please say yes...please say yes! Okay, in 8 hours, the answer will be yes!
I really REALLY did not want to get up this morning. Warm bed, warm blankets, warm EVERYTHING. Cold clothes, cold car, cold hands...I really didn't want to go outside...not to mention, I had to walk all the way across the damn apartment complex to get to my car, so that just made my morning even peachier.
I'm hungry...didn't have time to stop for food...we're supposed to be going out to lunch at the Olive Garden for my boss' birthday today at noon, but I don't know if I can wait that long. I think I'm just going to have a side caesar salad or something because I had pasta last night and I really don't want to eat pasta again!
Poor Brian...I wonder if he had to stay late last night because of the PS3 thing? I doubt it...but he did close last night and then the poor thing had to get up and open this morning. I do not think that he's enjoying his job very much right now. He has to work the day after Thanksgiving and rather than putting him in the Geek Squad where he usually is, they're making him work video games...and they're making him come in at 3:45 in the morning! He's working double shifts that day or something, so he works until some random time in the morning, they give him a lunch, he works some more, they give him a lunch, and then he works some more...finally being able to go home. What bogus bullshit is that? I feel bad for him...I wouldn't want to be doing a shift like that. I have to work the day after Thanksgiving too, but we'll most likely get to leave early since no one's going to be here and the banks aren't going to be open or anything...
UGH...I am hearing a phone call that is going to come to me...lol...better get to my stuff.

TONIGHT = BORING
I sat around until about 7:30ish doing absolutely nothing and then Melissa messaged me and we went to Best Buy where I took advantage of Brian's employee discount (I asked him if it was suspicious and he said "no, employee's spouses get to use the discount") so I guess I'm considered equal to a spouse in his eyes...lol
Anyway, bought some movies and ridiculously cheap prices. I got some $6.99 movies for almost $5.00 and then some $22.00 movie was only about $13.00, so I can't complain.
Melissa and I went to eat at Noodles n' Company after we left there and then I came home.
The funniest thing happened when we were leaving Best Buy. There's a big row of tents out front of the store (you know, this is the best Best Buy ever for waiting out in front of...it's next to one of the biggest liquor stores in Colorado, so they could really have a big party if they wanted to) and this guy in a yellow shirt comes out of the store and he jumps up in the air and he goes "I'M SO FUCKING AWESOME! I'M WAITING IN A LINE IN FRONT OF THE STORE!!! WOOOO!!!!!!" Granted, this guy wasn't waiting in the line, but he was sure making it a point to make fun of those people that were waiting in the line. He just went ballistic and was like "I'm SO FUCKING AWESOME! IT'S JUST SO SWEET TO BE WAITING!" We had a little chuckle on the way to the car...lol
Oh well...that was it...time to watch some of what I bought. I purchased one of the best movies ever...Clue! I am thoroughly addicted to this movie because it's one of my all time favorites :)
OH...you know what, I had a great parking spot before I left to go on this little adventure, but I come back...all the fucking spots are filled up in the parking lot and I had to park not even down by the front entrance, but across from the front entrance up aways into the next parking lot. FUCKERS...I'm going to enquire about getting a damn garage or a carport because this is fucking ridiculous! I'm almost 8 months pregnant and I get winded walking about a flight of stairs to get to my apartment, I don't want to walk across the damn apartment complex to get to my building because there's no parking spots. Pisses me off...
I KNEW IT!!!

Today has sort of sucked...
I told my best friend...just when I think I'm getting caught up, something is going to screw me over and I'm going to get behind again...and voila! It happened!!!
Welcome to my world I guess. This appears to happen to me every week now...quite depressing if you ask me. Just for once I'd like to know all of my stuff is current and everything is going as planned. I will repeat, AS PLANNED.
Oh well...not going to dwell on that little piece of business. Just makes me frustrated and I honestly feel worthless, but I had a long discussion about it with one my superiors and it isn't me...SO YAY! I guess I just needed that extra reassurance that it was not me :)
I don't know if I explained that we're doing a big putt-putt golf competition at my work at the beginning of next month. Each department is going to make up a hole and then we're going to have prizes and all that for best hole and best putter and all that fun stuff. Our department came up with Candy Land and we're going to go ALL OUT. Our whole course is going to be like the board game from Candy Land. The green is going to be all the colored squares, we're going to have the peppermint forest (with candy canes and candy all over...fake mind you), we're going to do the lollypop land place (with fake lollypops and crap), we're doing the gumdrop mountains with the gumdrop pass, we're going to do the molasses swamp (get this, we're going to fill up a kiddy pool with lots AND LOTS of syrup...so it'll be like the swamp) complete with Gloppy that mollases monster thingy...and then we're going to have a big finish with ice cream castle at the end (as the hole). Someone has a bubble machine, so we're going to load that up behind the castle and someone's building the whole castle faccade and it's going to be all ice creamy and all that. This thing is going to KICK MAJOR ASS! I can't wait to get it done and take pictures because it's going to be sweet :)
YAY! Talking about that has sort of put me in a better mood...much happier and all that.
Um...that's about it!
