The sweet release of death

That is what I was praying for during the last day and a half. I am always the person that gets a lot of colds every year, but I don't usually get anything worse. Well, my luck ended around 4 am on Sunday morning and I proceeded to get more sick than I have in about 15 years. This was one of the first times that I didn't have someone to take care of me when I was feeling so poorly. Sometimes it's just nice to have someone fuss over you and make you feel coddled. I did call my dad at 6:30 in the morning and made him sympathize with me from afar, but it just wasn't the same. I am feeling better now and taking it easy, but I will probably be back to work tomorrow.

Get Yo' Dance On

As I sit here in my apartment, four of my friends are planning their "moves" for an upcoming dance routine. No, we're not in third grade, but one of us is moving to Cali and he needs a proper send off. That send off? A choreographed dance recital. It is sure to be super cool and super funny. If you are in Birmingham make sure to go out not this Saturday, but the next and you will know our group by the smokin' moves and the groupies that will be sure to hang around. It should be special.

I love new stuff

I have been wanting a new bed set for a while and I decided to go with something a little more cheery than my last selection. A few years ago, I was going for a "modern bordello." I had a burgundy velvet duvet, black sheets, and velvet curtains. Very dark, but fun for a while. Now, I want to be a little girlier so I have gone with a quilt set from Target. It is burnt orange color with flowers and a cream background. I tried to find a picture of it online but to no avail. I'm very excited. Maybe I'll take a picture of it once it's on the bed. Perhaps I'll put all my crap up after that...nah.

Attention, Ladies

Just a friendly public service announcement, but I want to encourage everyone to get the HPV vaccine and greatly reduce your risk of getting cervical cancer. I was not even aware of HPV until a couple of years ago and I think that is absolutely ridiculous. Lately, there has been more news about this STD especially in connection with talk of Gardasil (the name of the vaccine). Next time you visit the doctor tell them you want it and reduce your risk of developing cancer. Sorry to preach, but I plan on doing the same thing and I want all my friends protected. Trust me, if this was about preventing penis cancer with a vaccine, the medicine would be available at local gas stations.

I'm back

Sorry it has taken me so long to update the blog, but I have been busy settling in and staying up late and going out. I would love to say that I have been working hard on unpacking and getting everything organized, but I have found it easier to go out and pretend all my stuff has magically put itself in drawers and gotten out of my way. It hasn't happened yet, but I'll let you know if the moving fairies have come and transformed my room into a livable habitat.

Full of crap

My apartment, I mean. I have thrown away so much stuff and if I was a little less discerning/picky I would probably be throwing away even more. My brother does, I don't. My dad throws anything away that isn't moving (too fast, at least) and my mother couldn't throw away a prescription bottle that was 15 years old. I err on the side of my father. So, do you have trouble throwing stuff away?

Packing machine

That's right. I'm back on the packing wagon! I have thrown out a bunch of trash and packed most of my books in my bedroom. I am feeling better about the whole move. It is still gonna suck, but a little less.

No fanfare, please

In the spirit of keeping the blog up to date I am letting you know that I have embarked on another round of Weight Watchers. I am in two weddings in about six months and I need to lose a lot of weight. I'm not happy with what I weigh and I need to get down to business. I bought the food and I am ready to get going. No big deal, just what I gotta do.

8 Days

I am moving in 8 days. I have packed 1 box. Apparently, I am waiting for the moving fairies to come and get my sh*t together and move it for me. My anxiety is slowly rising, but I am just too lazy to move myself. Ugh. Pray for me. I'm going to need it.

A Disturbing Thought

When my dad passes away (or I just can't manage to tolerate his Scrooge-ness anymore) where am I going for the holidays? I've always gone home, but where will I go when there isn't a "home" per se? My brother is getting married in a few months and then he will be spending his time with his new family. Where am I going to go? Okay, I'm putting it out there...who wants and aging (somewhat) single woman for the holidays (not in the too too soon future)? Let me know - I'm accepting offers. I come with presents and my own stocking. All offers will be considered.

All by myself...

I put Teddy in the kennel over New Years and I am not picking him up until tomorrow. So lonely. It is amazing how one little 20 pound dog makes such a difference. Oh well, I'll pick him up in the morning and then all will be right with the world. I'm pathetic...
