a possible post from me....

i say possible because i'm not sure if this will let me post. 
i haven't had internet for like a month, and i finally got it back yesterday & then tried to start up the trusty computer & it's already shut off twice.  and it's making that noise... *sigh*  really, i am wondering if it's worth it to be paying the internet fees right now.  i do need to get mom & everyone's calendars done & then i might just do away w/ the internet until i can get a new computer.  it's just too frustrating, and i would rather be reading than messing w/ this thing.  

*sigh*  anyway!  life has been ... crazy.  but isn't it always?  i've felt very much stress at work, but not a pull your hair out kind, or an "i hate my job" kind, just ... the kind that sucks the life from the marrow of your bones.  *laugh*  i know some (most) won't understand how that feeling could NOT make me hate my job, but ... *shrug*  even when i'm stressed, i love what i'm doing.  i love being able to help ppl w/ stuff... 

i've had some mr crushtastic sightings, and IM's, which always put a smile to my face no matter how stressful a day has been.  : )  

have been reading LOTS, and loving it!

hanging out w/ mom & leyton & anthony - yesterday we just did some running around & had lunch at jimmy john's & made our semi-monthly trip to popcorn charlie's.  i got some creamy dill popcorn & it's delish!  if you like dill.  ; )  

hanging out w/ trish for our sunday night TV viewing is always fun!  we aren't hanging out tonight cuz our shows aren't on til next week.  but i'm going over to her house tuesday after uncle terry's funeral to watch a marathon of christmas movies.  i'll need the happy joy of christmas movies after that... 

(expansion on the above - my uncle terry passed away thursday after a fierce battle with cancer.  he is with the Lord now, and w/ my dad - he was married to my dad's sister, sharon, and was one of daddy's best friends.  they had a really similar personality, humor, and life view!  so, i'm happy that he's not in pain, that he's w/ the Lord.  but sad because once again i feel like we lost a great man way too soon.  *sigh*  so, his visitation is tomorrow, on my birthday, and the funeral is tuesday.  :(  *HUGS*  to my family!)

in happier news - today was my birthday bash at biaggi's, with breaking dawn part 2 afterward.  it was definitely a happy & fun occasion, and i'm so glad the ppl who were there, were there!  : )  mom, grammy, leyton, trish, joy, nicki, juli, john, aunt judy, aunt jan, aunt nancy & uncle gene!  pretty good group of ppl, they are!  : )  nicki made my cake again this year, and she did a BEAUTIFUL job!  i decided i wanted an Acheron cake, because i've read the book like 5 times in 4 months or some such thing!  : )  i felt it was a very fitting cake design, and she did... oh my goodness, SUCH a great job!  i'll have pictures in another post hopefully this week!  

the majority of my gifts were money, which i'm sooooo grateful for because i've been a little strapped for cash!  of course, if i wouldn't buy books or groceries... or did away w/ the internet... but i'll have a loan paid off by the end of the year & then will have that little extra to put away, so that'll be nice.  : )  aunt judy gave me a gift card to BAM, so i can buy some books w/o using cash!  lol  and trish, oh dear sweet trish!  she gave me HP 1&2 on dvd.  i know, i know, you're thinking to yourself, "how can she possibly NOT already have the harry potter movies on dvd?"  well... yeah.  idk, but i didn't.  now i have 2, so i can work on building the whole collection!  : )  thanks, trish!!  

after lunch, nicki, aunt jan, juli, john & i went to the movies.  
breaking dawn part 2.  
it. was. EPIC!  
love love love!  : )  
i might see it again w/ mom when she goes (she had to miss it tonight to take grammy home & then leyton decided to stay w/ her til about 6:30).  speaking of movies i want to see again, i still want to see Pitch Perfect again!  and i need to find the soundtrack... : )  

so, what's everyone been up to?  so glad i can read y'all's blogs on my phone, but i miss interacting more regularly on blogs!  ah well.  life shifts sometimes, and sometimes it shifts back.  

for now, i'm off to write thank-you notes & then read How To Marry A Millionaire Vampire again.  : )  i think i'll hit up BAM tomorrow to get the 2nd & 3rd books in that series w/ my gift card...heh.  oh, and i discovered a new trilogy by Colby Hodge, and there was supposed to be a 4th book, but i don't think she ever wrote it.  :(  which saddens me because the 3rd book kinda left us w/ some cliff hangers that i would really like to see resolved!!  


OHHHH!  p.s.
one of our stops yesterday was the wonder bread outlet, for mom to get some bread.  WOW!  talk about empty shelves!  apparently, hostess has gone bankrupt & the bakers said they were out?  i'm not clear on the details, all i know is that twinkies & ding dongs disappeared over night.  i'm not so fussed about the twinkies, but i really do love the ganache covering of ding dongs!  :(  not that i eat them very often anymore, but ya know, as soon as something is GONE you want it.  LOL  

ttfn again!  lol
