  • A little update

    I am so glad that blogging daily was not on my list of new years resolutions. That would have been a fail right off the bat! No posts in 15 days. I did not even reply to any comments. It’s not like I was too busy. I just sometimes can not get up the energy to turn on the computer after spending 8-10 hours a day on it at work. I know in this day in age most of us work daily on computers. But sometimes I just want a break. So I took one, without even really thinking about it.

    Not much has gone on in the last 2 weeks anyways. We now have snow on the ground that does not seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. I have now realized how incredibly stupid it is not to have snow tires on my car. No I did not have an accident. But I feel like I might as well be in a tobaggan (like those olympic style ones) rather then a car. I am getting used to it and don’t mind driving on ice or hard packed snow but slushy snow scares the crap out of me and I hold my breath whenever Cory has the car. He is a good driver, so I really don’t need to be, he has only ever had one accident but he also is inexperienced compared to me. [...]

  • Why am I sick again?

    I spent the first few days this week sick at home… again. It just feels never ending. We left Mom and Dad’s on Monday and I was supposed to work from 12-8 pm. However, I woke up that morning throwing up. Since I had a 2 1/2 hour drive ahead of us that I would have to do (Cory has never really driven that far and was not feeling well either). I called in to work to let them know I would not be there. It was not an easy decision to make. I only had about 2 hours of sleep because I was so unsettled, my stomach was upset but I was not getting sick.

    I ended up moving from the bed to a very uncomfortable futon around 4 when I realized it was 4 and I had to get up and drive in 2 hours. I should have probably realized at that point that that was not going to happen but I was stubbornly trying to figure out how to manage it. In the end I gave up when I started throwing up. I decided to crawl back in bed and attempt the drive a little later on in the day. [...]

  • Dropping the ball

    Somehow I really dropped the ball yesterday. I am not sure why but I thought I had posted. However I didn’t. Who am I kidding anyways? I can’t blog everyday, I never have been able to for very long.

    Yesterday I think it was because I went to the dentist and wasn’t feeling the greatest when I got home. Only one more appointment for all my dental work to be done. Yesterday he filled my tooth that I had the root canal on, the molar that broke. He sort of rebuilt it, it’s in the back and I don’t really care what it looks like as long as it functions.

    I am a bit sore today. I also had 3 more fillings on that side done. Took a while for the freezing to wear off again. My appointment was at 1 pm I was out by 2:15-2:30 pm but my whole right side of my face was still frozen when I went to bed. [...]

  • Most controversial thing

    What is the most controversial thing you’ve ever written on your blog? What compelled you to write it?

    It’s hard to answer this as I don’t think I have really wrote anything controversial. The closest thing was this post about abuse that I had suffered in the past by an ex-boyfriend. I guess you could consider anything related to abuse controversial in the manner that sometimes people will not believe you, or say you deserved it for staying or what you consider abuse may not necessarily be what someone else considers abuse, etc. I could go on and on with this as over the years I have heard anything and everything you could ever imagine regarding it from “it’s too late to talk now” to “you stayed so therefor you deserved what you got”.

  • Blogging skills

    What is the one skill you see in other bloggers that you wish you had?

    When I visit a blog for the first time the thing that tends to strike me the most is how often you post. More so then the quality of your posts or what you post about. I enjoy reading about other peoples thoughts and feelings and about their day in general but if you write really infrequently or there is months at a time between posts I tend to loose interest.

    Oddly enough the thing I admire most in other bloggers is the one thing I can not seem to accomplish myself. Sometimes it seems no matter how hard I try or how much I wish it. I just never seem capable of accomplishing it. Sometimes it is that I can not seem to get in the mood to write but often I don’t really have anything to write about and can not come up with ideas.

  • Finally, it’s about time

    I believe I mentioned purchasing a car a few months ago on my blog. Well the day we picked it up from the dealership, June 21st, one of the key fob parts of the integrated key fobs (totally off topic, every time I write out or hear the word fob, it makes me laugh, I don’t know why…) did not work at all. Within a few days the second one stopped working.

    Since then I have been in contact with the dealership every few days at first then pretty much weekly from then on, trying to get them to fix the issue. Which is that I need two new key fobs. At $150.00 for each fob, which is essentially in this case the top part of the key and has the lock, unlock button and trunk release buttons and another $100.00 to program them I could not justify paying that myself within a few days of buying the car, especially since one of the key fobs did not work the day I picked the car up and they promised me they would deal with it.
