Cleaning, Cleaning All My Days

So today I am home alone for the evening, and all I am going to do is clean. It feels like I am constantly cleaning the house and it is never getting any cleaning. I acutally think it is getting messier! Only I could achieve that kind of success. My cleaning has been really random though, and thats why I think nothing looks done. I need to focus on one room and finish it before I move onto the next room. I think I will start at the living room and make my way down the hall until I get to my bedroom. It will take me days probably.

I finished the quilt for my mom's friend on time! And she called me today to thank me and said she loved it! So thats good. Yesterday when we were in the city I bought some more fabric to make a really cool green quilt for my cousin morgan. I am so excited about it. I want to start it right now!! We wanted to have a quick trip to the city but that never happens. We bought some paint for our kitchen. Eric might go to the states with Andrew this weekend so I think I am going to try to paint the kitchen on my own. I hope it will turn out good.

I am starting to get a little frustrated with my job. For the first part, I hardly get paid anything. And secondly they hinted today that they want me to start working every saturday. I really don't want to do that. I just want a regular job that I can work Monday - Friday without feeling guilty. I worked my share of weekends for a long time. When I worked in Hecla I missed alot of fun stuff with friends because I always had to work. It really sucked. I just want a summer while I am still young and don;t have kids that I can do stuff with my friends on weekeneds. At least I never have to work Sundays. Well I should get back to cleaning now.

A Long Week...

This past week I was working at the Arborg clinic. I was being the receptionist/tech. For the first four days it was a little slow and boring at times. Making the day take forever. But on Friday everything changed. I was so busy all day and stressed out because people made me feel like I wasn't doing anything properly or fast enough. It is hard to be both the receptionist and the tech at the same time. When I got home I was soo tired and my body ached everywhere. We went to Eric's parents for supper and I only ate 2 pieces of pizza! I usually eat 4-5. I was just too tired to eat. Then we went to Dahlen's and I read my new magazine, Equus. It is really good. I have learnt alot about keeping my horse healthy from there already!!

Today was kind of busy too! I slept in until 11:15 (Finally!!) and went to town and picked up my parcel. It was my Victoria Secret order! Yay! I was down to one bra that fit me properly, so now I have four. And I got a bunch of cute (and comfy!) underwear, and some other stuff. Then I cleaned the house a bit and did dishes. At about 4 I went to the farm to deworm Zia. I forgot the halter so I just had to use the rope. Me and Eric met Cam there and he came back with us. We tried to catch Zia for a while but couldn't. So Cam said "Lots of people don't know this about me, but I am a pretty good cowboy" and tried to lasso her. It did not work at all. Finally I got the rope around her neck and made a quick rope halter. The actual deworming portion of the event took 10 seconds. Zia was really good. She just lifted her lip in disgust a bit but didn't try to spit out the stuff at all. Misson complete. Then I went home and started supper. Then Bryan and Kathy invited us over for supper. So I took my stuff ( Italian sausage and pasta) over to their place and we ate my food and Kathy had made a taco bake (which was REALLY good) and salad.

Right now it is 1:20 and I am working on a rag quilt for my mom's friend for her birthday. I am not really in the mood to sew at all (which explains why I am blogging instead). She has been asking me to make this for weeks now. And she wants it by monday. I have had the material cut and mostly sandwiched for a while, but i really didn;t feel like sewing. Eric is out with Cam right now, so I will probably sew till he gets home or until I fall asleep at the sewing machine. I guess I should make the most of my time and get back to work now!

Some Funny Pictures

Just a few pics to share that make me smile!

Sean with Ricky Bobby after the big race!

Fleury is such a helpful pup. Here she is
helping us open our new bookshelf. I wish
she would of helped us put it together too!

Sheri, Lois and I after a McD's run. We ordered
water and lots and lots of salt and I think we
paid them something like $0.74.

New Compy

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGH, I am watching the stupidest movie in the world with eric, andrew and dahlen. It is called the protector. A 250 pound man just swung a huge, probably 1000 pound, baby elephant around buy it's hips and threw it. ENOUGH SAID!

I have mostly been on the net searching for a male chihuahua. If anybody knows of one please tell me. I need to buy a stud for my females. He has to be under 4lbs,. I would love him to be 3.5 pounds that would be perfect. Eric might go to minneapolis this weekend so i was looking at what was for sale there. There is a bunch of puppies there but I am not sure if I am going.

We bought a new computer today. The total bill came to $666.66, so I made Andrew change it. It is so cute and tiny, And I signed up for dial-up internet. I AM GOING TO DIE. I haven't used that slow of internet in such a long time. It is going to suck. At least we will have something. It is time to go though!

BRAND NEW IS COMING!!!

I AM SOOOOOOOOOO EXCITED!! My favorite band in the whole entire world, Brand New (who the song I posted is by), is coming to Winnipeg finally. It is going to be the best concert ever. I have never been to a concert of a band I have liked for so long and know almost all their songs from 3 cds but I have never seen live. I mean seeing Dashboard twice was awesome, but it will not even compare to seeing Brand New. I may cry. I love them...

Songs

Some songs just describe how I feel sometimes better than anything I could ever say:

This song explains my feelings of not wanting to grow up (well not everything (like the passed out part and the stuff in most of the brackets will throw you off so try not to read them), but the general idea of the song gets it right:

Passed out on the overpass
Sunday best and broken glass
Broken down from the bikes and bars
Suspended like spirits over speeding cars
You and me were kings over the parkway tonight
And tonight will go on forever while we
walk around this town like we own the streets
and stay awake through summer like we own the heat
Singin' "everybody wake up (wake up) it's time to get down"
(everybody, everybody wake up it's time to get down)

And when I pass the bottle back to Pete on the overpass tonight, I bet we laugh

I'm gunna stay eighteen forever (cut me open)
So we can stay like this forever (sun poisoned)
And we'll never miss a party (this offer stands forever)
cause we keep them going constantly
And we'll never have to listen (new haircut)
to anyone about anything (new bracelet)
cause it's all been done and it's all been said (eyeliner)
We're the coolest kids and we take what we can get (wait forever)

The hell out of this town
Find some conversation
The low fuel lights been on for daysIt doesn't mean anything
I've got another 500 'nother 500 miles
before we shut this engine down,we shut it down

I'm gunna stay eighteen forever (cut me open)
So we can stay like this forever (sun poisoned)
And we'll never miss a party (this offer stands forever)
cause we keep them going constantly
And we'll never have to listen (new haircut)
to anyone about anything (new bracelet)
cause it's all been done and it's all been said (eyeliner)
We're the coolest kids and we take what we can get (wait forever)

(you're just jealous cause I'm young and in love)
Eighteen forever(your stomachs filled up but you're starved for conversation)
So we can stay like this forever(you're spending all your nights growing old in your bed)
And we'll never miss a party(and your tearin' up your photos 'cause you just wanna forget... it's over)
cause we keep them going constantly(you're just jealous cause I'm young and in love)
And we'll never have to listen(your stomachs filled up but you're starved for conversation)
to anyone about anything cause it's all been done(you're spending all your nights growing old in your bed)
and it's all been said(and your tearin' up your photos cause you wanna forget... it's over)
We're the coolest kids and we take what we can get

You're just jealous 'cause we're young and in love
You're just jealous 'cause we're young and in love
You're just jealous 'cause we already loved
You're just jealous 'cause we're young and in love
You're just jealous 'cause we already loved
You're just jealous...

I want hundreds of babies!!

Sometimes I just really want a baby, or two or six. It seems like everybody else is having or already has a baby. But I am pretty sure I am too selfish for one now. I want all of Eric's attention and don't want to share it with a baby just yet. But babies are so cute and sometimes I just really want to be pregnant. I really don't want to wake up every 2 hours to feed a baby though. I like my sleep. But I think it would be great to stay at home all day with a baby and not have to work. But if I had a baby in 9 months we would have to take a 1 month old kid backpacking in Europe, and I don't think that would be very fun, and my family would never let me go. It would be a great story for the kid to tell when it was older though, that it got to go backpacking in Europe it's first couple months on the earth. Plus Cheryl will kill me if I have a baby right now. But Terry would be happy, especially if it is a redheaded little girl. I think we will just get a dog instead. The babies can wait a couple more years.

I Hate Fights...

I am sooooo tired today and my head hurts. Last night Eric got home late and we had a little spat and I couldn't sleep for a long time. Sometimes I just get so upset and don't know how to calm down. I really hate it and I feel sorry for Eric because the poor guy doesn't know what to do. That is something I really struggle with is controling my anger. I just need to learn how to not let little stupid things bother me so much. I need to focus more on the positive things. If I could do that I wouldn't be angry so often. I also need to learn how not to take things out on Eric when it is not his fault. When I have a bad day at work I usally get upset with him for no reason. It is horrible. He is such a good husband and makes me so happy, I wish he could know that all the time. Please pray for me. Pray that our relationship can be centered more on God and that I will look to God to fulfill my needs, not always Eric because it is impossible for him to do it all.

So many new things!!

It has been forever since I have had something to write here. I haven't had a computer to be on since my laptop died and is going to cost me a fourtune to fix. So I guess we are just going to get a PC desktop until I can afford a MacBook. At work I have hardly had the time to go on the net either, this post might be a short one anyways. Even though I haven't written in so long and have so much to say my mind is blank, I can't figure out what to write.

Lois' wedding was this weekend. It was a good wedding and very beautiful. Lois also looked very beautiful , of course. And it was fun. Some wedding can get pretty boring, but this one was not at all. And the food was good. Eric, Sheri and I ate so much Corn Chowder we barely had room for the main course, which was chicken fingers. A very unique idea but i liked it. We didn't stay that late. I think we left around 7:30 when the couple was opening gifts. It is hard to imagine Lois married, I guess it is because I don't really know Jonathan and havn't really seen them together as a couple a whole lot. They are a good couple though, and they love eachother lots!

Yesterday I started a bunch of new things, and I was just in a cleaning/renovate my house right now mood. I went to co-op and spend 100 bucks on rubbermaid containters and storage units and cleaning supplies. I never got go clean up my house yesterday though. I finally got my pet edge order a week ago. So yesterday I went to my Auntie Janie's and groomed her cocker spaniel, Belle. It took me over 2 hours. Longer than I thought it would but she looked pretty good after. I was proud of myself that she looked half decent and it was the first dog I have ever done. So in the evening I thought I would clean and organize the house. But my cousin Kevin called and wanted his dog groomed. So they brough her over and it took me almost 2 hours to do her. She also looked pretty good. I am starting to get the hang of this grooming thing. I guess tonight I will start to organize our spare room. It is a disaster right now! Just hideous. It has been left for so long and now I am tired of it. I can't wait to get it all cleaning up. That room really needs a closet. And a new floor (light colored bamboo) and paint ( thai grass and a yellow to match) and new blinds (bamboo), but that will be the last (or second last) room that we redo.


I am really itching to get our kitchen done. I want to paint the walls a deep yellow color with a venitian plaster finish. And I want a new bottom cupboards by the sink and oven because they are gross and I don't want to keep anything in there. And a new light fixture. That one is broken and gross. lol.

In the bathroom I want new cupboards, one the goes to the ceiling and that had room for towels (all our towels are stored in our bedroom right now. And a new sink and tub and fixtures because the ones in there are yellow and gross. I want white. And I want to paint the walls blue, a nicer blue that what is in there now. And I want a new light fixture because the one in there is gross. The floors and the toilet are the only things that can stay in that bathroom.

In my bedroom I want laminate floors and to paint the walls red. And to get a dresser. And an area rug. And replace the windows because they are gross. Actually the whole trailer needs new windows. We might have to get new ones in the summer because these ones we have let soooooo much cold in. Our hydro bill is through the roof! Might as well burn the place down and get a new one. LOL!

Wow! I wrote alot! Time to go!

Back To Reality

I have had so many days off, it felt like I had a real holiday. I has to work wednesday and thursday last week but it felt like I hardly worked at all. Now I am back at work full time with no holidays in sight for a long time. Today I am in Arborg, but I think I will leave early because I still don't feel great. The vet is gone this afternoon anyways and there are no appointments. I really hope I got my Pet Edge order in the mail today. I have been waiting for a long time for that. My dogs' christmas presents were in there. And my clippers I ordered, there are a bunch of dogs that can't see because they have been waiting for my clippers to come. Poor things, lol. They said it would be here in 5 days but it has been more like 15. And i expected the christmas mailing rush to slow it down a bit, but not that much! Oh well!

Last night we went to Bryan and Kathleens for a few hours. Kathy made new years cookies that were very good, she even said it was ok for my to pick the raisins out. (Sheri make some for our new years party that had no raisins, they were ssooooooooo good, thanks so much Sheri!! or Luella, i think she made them) This was actually my first year ever eating them!

Yesterday I finished a baby quilt I have been working on. It is very cute. It has little sleeping giraffe's and maple leaves on it. The backround is brown and the middle is beige. It is going to be nice when it dries. My dryer has been taking forever lately. There must be something wrong with it. It take like 4-5 60 minutes cycles to dry stuff. We have even tried cleaning out the hose and everything. This is exactly what happened in out apartment in the city. We never complained about it until 3 weeks before we moved out. I only ever got to use our new dryer there once. But that thing was ancient, the one we have now is fairly new. I would say, at the very most 10 years, but I am no expert. Anyways, I have no idea who the quilt will be for I just like making it. I am going to start another one. This one just has paw prints on it. I hope it will be cute too. I am not sure though, maybe it will look like it is for animals. Oh well someone will like it. Time to go!!

Suddenly Sick

So.... New years went really good and I had lots of fun and I hope everyone else did. We played games together and had a good time visiting and catching up. Our bales on fire did not turn out quite so good. We shot sooooooo many bottle rockets at them, but they did not light . We mostly missed. Actually I don;t thing anyone really hit the bales properly. It was fun though. We finally just lit the bales with matches and it caught fast and was a huge roaring fire pretty quickly. The fire was nice. Better than watching the countdown on CBC. The cleanup was not bad at all. The girls cleaned up a little when they left and adrian cleaned up when he left this morning, so we barely had anything and it was awesome. A 1/2 hour or so after midnight the sickness started to hit me. Eric has been sick for a couple days already, with a sore throat and stuffed up nose. And it seemed to just all of a sudden hit me last night, it was odd. So now I am sitting here with a sore throat, headache and my nose is running. I would shove kleenex up there to block it for a while but Sean would beak me for sure. Lol. Today is such a beautiful day outside. We might go for a walk or something, but nothing too crazy. I think I fell asleep at 1:30 or 2 last night. At around 3 i moved to kelly ann's room cuz it was so cold downstairs. At 5 Eric woke me up to go home. There was just no way I was staying up that late.
