Merry Christmas to those who celebrate!! :D My day was fantastic, filled with laughs, great friends and great food. Can't ask for anything more!

This year-end has been an absolutely great one. On December 1 I finally replaced my old car with a used 2007 Chevy Malibu. I absolutely love it, more than I can say. It makes me wonder how I ever possibly lived with the Daewoo for as long as I did! Now I just have to make sure I can juggle the payments AND the higher insurance and get this thing paid off early!

And in job news, I FINALLY got new one! All of the months of misery are finally going to be over in 3 more work days. I start my new job on the 30th as they needed someone to start before year-end. I'm staying in the financial industry, but I'll be working for an agent instead of a provider, so I'll get to learn more about different kinds of retirement solutions. Which is great since I want to do something with my 401K now that I won't be at the company anymore! :D I absolutely love the people I'll be working with - I went in for 3 interviews and spent a lot of time talking to the people in the office. Talked to one of them Thursday too just to confirm they received a fax I sent and ended up on the phone for 5 minutes just talking about how much fun we're going to have. :)

The ONLY downside to this is I need a few more nice work shirts. At my current company we can wear polos if we want, but that won't be proper here. I'm actually looking forward to dressing up! Which means I must REALLY like this job. haha

Much love to all of you!

So...I have a new band that I'm VERY much into right now. They're called Runner Runner, and I could literally go on for hours about them and how amazingly wonderful they are. I would probably drive you all crazy if I did that, so I'm just going to put some stuff in here for you to check out, and you can decide for yourselves if you like them!

YouTube videos under the cut )

We actually met these guys when they opened for The White Tie Affair last year. And since then every time we've seen them they've remembered us and come right over to us for hugs and conversation. Heck a couple weeks ago we were listening to one of the other bands and three of the five of them ended up at our table at some point or other. They're amazing guys that I simply adore and the fact that their music makes me happy is even better. :) They're on tour with Secondhand Serenade and The White Tie Affair right now and we'll be seeing them twice in August! This time we'll get pics with them since we haven't seemed to bother to do that yet. LOL

Well...the good news is I get my Tuesday and Wednesday nights back now.

Thank you [livejournal.com profile] deanforester for my package of goodies!! :D You are such a sweetheart, and are completely the reason why I was bouncing off the walls until 1 AM! The balloon and card are sitting on my desk right next to me so I can look at them whenever I want to.

*hugs tight*

I miss you!!!

So I had an anxiety attack so bad today that I almost went to the ER with chest pains. This is not my idea of a good time. Luckily after taking my "emergency" medication and practicing all of my relaxing exercises the pain has ceased for the most part. And I have no other symptoms to make me believe it's anything more serious than the stress piling up and getting the better of me.

Still, it sucks hardcore.

The GOOD news is I've started working on some more of my beaded flowers. I sold 3 on Saturday just by showing them off at the local farmers/artisans market. One vendor offered me some shelf space in her own booth! I'm very excited about that but I need to get my stock started if I'm going to do that.
newdaydawning79: (*headdesks*)
I really really really dislike people today. Not all people, mind you, just certain ones. I kind of want to kick some ass right now.

Thank everything tomorrow is Friday. Maybe I can take the weekend and calm the hell down.

Gah why am I so cold?! This is the third day that I cannot seem to get warm. And then I look at my cats all curled up in a ball and I wish I was that flexible. haha

I have 2 crockpots going, one with a beef stew and one with chicken and vegetables. This will give us entrees, either for lunch and dinner, for at least the next few days. I also have dishes in the dishwasher and laundry drying...it's been quite a productive day.

There's so much other work to do but I'm being lazy for the moment. Later cakes will be baked for a work party for Kel's coworker and I'll load the fridge with all of the yummy foods that are cooked once they're finished!

*hugs friendslist*

Man trying to make Drew Carey give away $1 million

If Drew Carey can get to 1 million followers by the end of the year, he'll give $1 million to the LiveStrong Foundation. Right now he's only at a little over 100K. Granted, $100,000.00 is a lot of money and it would be a great donation, but $1 million would be so much better! :)

The link is to a CNN article which is how I found out about it. So for anyone who has a Twitter account and is interested, follow Drew Carey and pass this info along!!

I really really really wish I could go to Ohio right now...but I have a feeling it wouldn't be enough!

I feel like a dork but I have never wanted to follow a band around so much in my life.

Is it November 29th yet??

HAPPY belated BIRTHDAY, [livejournal.com profile] callmedirk!!!!!
.

I love you and I'm SO SO SO SO grateful that we have had the chance to talk and get to know each other again these past few months. It's something I will never take for granted, that's for sure. *hugs* I hope your day was fantastic, and I'm sorry I missed it. :(

hahah so what was it I said about being around more? I guess I completely either a) lied or b) honestly didn't realize how long it's been since I updated!

But really, I'm back to working an insane amount of hours at work, and battling the exhaustion/sicknesses that come with spreading yourself too thin. Other than that, there hasn't been a whole lot going on. At least it's football season, which has got to be my favorite time of year.

I think I'm on facebook and twitter more than I'm ever on here so if you have one of those things, come look me up so we can stay in better contact!! :D

I feel so domestic today!

I've baked a chocolate cake from scratch, going to make frosting too, and the house is looking nice, just have to clean the bathroom and make sure the cats have everything they need in their room since they'll likely be in there all evening.

Having a little get-together tonight, it should be fun!

Happy Birthday, [livejournal.com profile] lalabebe!!!

I hope you're having a fantastic day! I'm so glad that you've got a job you love and that you're chasing your dreams. You're awesome!

I have been SO lazy today, I'm almost disappointed in myself. Granted, that's what a nice long weekend is for but still. I told my boss I'd come in for a couple hours this weekend and I just couldn't bring myself to do it today. There are still 2 days left though so there's no telling when I might show up. :D

Today wasn't a complete loss though, I completely cleaned one of the couches and I'm currently waiting for the Drain-o to work on the bathroom sink. It says to give it a good hour so I'm just waiting til that passes. I might clean the other couch later, I haven't really decided yet. Or I may just chill out and sew, because that sounds like fun, and no play is going to make me very dull later!

I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far, and I'm sending my thoughts out to all of those that need a hug or a kind word, whether it be virtual or otherwise.

I just got the notice that my paid account is about to expire. lol Now I'm debating on whether or not to re-up it. I mean, I'm using LJ daily, I just don't post much these days. And I can't imagine not having any icons to use anymore...I kind of like the stash of them I have.

I'll probably pay for it again and tell myself I have to use it more...which is what I did last year. :D Maybe this time I'll stick with it?

This has been the crappiest week ever....and it ended worse than it started.

Kel's in the hospital with pneumonia. According to the doctors she'll be there 48-72 hours. This...sucks, to say the least. I just got home from the hospital because she and I both knew I wouldn't get any sleep and I'm already getting sick myself (flu bug going around both of our workplaces). This way I can get some sleep and I can bring her stuff tomorrow.

The good news is she will have wi-fi access at the hospital so I'll be bringing her little laptop to her tomorrow. I'm worried to absolute death even though I know she's in great hands. I think I'm more upset about this whole thing than she is...anyone who knows either of us well shouldn't be surprised.

I'll keep you all updated with more information once I have it. With any luck, they'll decide she's progressing faster than most and she'll be home sooner than they anticipated.
