I am not cut out to be a housewife.

What is up with Friendster being so freakin' slow? I swear they are doing maintenance every single day now and I can still never get around. Oh... it’s not that. I'm just frustrated. I am stuck home all day with no internet and all my pals working. I'm just bored. I can only spend so much time exercising and I can only wash so many clothes..... The most exciting thing I do these days is decide what I am going to make for dinner.

Well it only took 3 weeks this time before I am climbing the walls. I like having breaks between shows, but this is just too long. We have no money so I can't really enjoy my time off because I am worried that we will go over budget. Matt has picked up a part time job on the weekends and he thinks that gives him license to spend. I am pulling in a whopping $209 a week on unemployment and feel bad if I buy an iced coffee. I do not understand people who spend money recklessly. I mean, I am not saying you have to be a hermit or anything, but if you don't have enough money to buy something DON'T BUY IT!!!! That's just MHO, of course.

This is hard because I would like to get a lot of things off my chest, but too many people read this for me to feel comfortable. I'm not saying I don't love you guys, but apparently I need to say embarrassing things, however - I just can't get over it and write them. Silly, I know, but true true true.

I am not happy. I will just leave it at that.

*sigh* Computers....


My computer is still not working.

Matty is trying to fix it, but its being difficult. He just said he wants to throw it out the window. Bummer. I guess that means it will be a while before I get a computer again. Grrrr. Matt is working a deal with his boss to trade overtime for a new laptop. That means I get this laptop, Cool. It’s old and clunky, but it works and right now that's all I care about. Can I tell you how boring it is out here in the 'burbs with no internet????

Yeah, I watch a lot of cooking shows.

Oooch, so Debbie came over tonight. She seems to be fitting in nicely with the OSF crowd. (Because it is impossible to dislike her!!!)

Hmmm...Well I got up to 16 minutes on the cross trainer today. I think I will try for 17 tomorrow. My ass is killing me though. Okay not really, but I feel weird not bitching!!

My new total of lost inches is 22!!! I KNOW can you believe it????? That is 4 dress sizes! Today I tried on some of my fat clothes and they were so big I had to get rid of them. It was silly to see myself in them. Oh yeah that feels good. Keep thinking good thoughts for me. I am finally losing weight the right way, but it is frustrating the hell out of me. I have only lost 28 lbs. in 4 months. But its a good weight loss not a crash diet weight I keep telling myself its okay and I will be fine and the scale is still going down no matter how slow..... blah blah blah

Well I'm off and babbling so it must be time to end this.

Okay okay I'm working on it.


But my computer is broken. Hubby is trying to fix it, but its slow going. *sigh*

We had Kenzie this weekend! I have not seen her in 5 months. DAMN SHE IS CUTE! She's a cheerleader now with Pop Warner. She is a bulldog! I know, I'm not one to love cheerleaders, but this is what she wants to do and I have NEVER seen her so dedicated. She is even doing better in school because she knows she has to have good grades to stay in the sport.

I am going to get some video clips up here as soon as I can. I took a few photos, but since my computer still isn't up and running, you will just have to wait.

Ooch, I am getting ready to celebrate my 11 month anniversary as a NONSMOKER! Hubby and I will be on a cruise when I reach it. WOOT! Jamie M. says I should have a big party for my 1 year anniversary. Do you think? Would people feel weird about coming if they are smokers? (several of my pals are still hard core smokers) I don't want to make them uncomfortable.

Okay I know this was a crazy mishmash of crap. Welcome to my life.


Pippin's preview full of excitement

Have you heard about the drama during the Pippin preview?

One of the dancers twisted his knee near the end of the first act. He was really hurt and had to be taken away in an ambulance. (At the time of this posting, it is not clear if he will be able to perform for the run or not) Our thoughts are with him.

Director and TRUE TROOPER, Marc went on for him for the second act. How cool is that?????? Good thing that Marc also did the choreography!!!!!

KUDOS to the cast and crew for getting through the show. I heard that the crew performed FANTASTICALLY under pressure. (I knew they would!) I also heard that the audience knew something had happened (the dancer got hurt onstage) but that the overall integrity of the show was never compromised.

Well we all knew that Utah employes true professionals..... THANK GOODNESS.

I was also informed that Christopher and J.R. stayed backstage the whole time, helping out anyway they could.

I am so impressed and proud of everyone. Of course I KNEW you all can do anything, but this just shows the world how awesome you truly are.

Nice work, people.

Hopefully Pippin (the show, not the actor!!) is done acting out and will settle down.

Holy crap ~~

It's like someones wardrobe exploded into the house....

And they brought kitchen supplies and books and and and...


I finally got the dining room looking like you could eat in it.

Why is it that the table closest to the door becomes the repository for all the worlds junk? Do we really need the past 5 issues of PC World? Does the dog's leash have to sit on the table? What about the mail.... oh I could go on and on.

Someone left all her new clothes hanging over a chair in that dining room...

(and that someone is WAY OVER age 7)

But Kenzie left stuff there too. A bag of things from Grandma's house sitting on the chair I used as a hanger.


How unorganized can one family be???

(okay I know I am a lot more Martha Stewart-y than most - - hey I LIKE having my dining room table set for entertaining!!! I am my mothers daughter after all.)

Anyway next I am moving on to the living room, which isn't so bad because hubby likes to stretch out in there so he tries to leave the clutter to the aforementioned and ever suffering dining room,

My office is a towering mess of Things That Need To Be Filed.

on a fantastic side note - - my birth certificate arrived in the mail the other day! Cozumel here I come!!!!!!!


Did I mention that I am allergic to Coldwater Tide? Yeah I found out over the summer as my Utah pals can tell you. I am still trying to get all the Tide out of my clothes.


OKay I just needed to write some things down to try and get back into this groove again.

I have lots of things to talk about....don't worry you voyuers.


So long, fair desert

Awww.... I am gonna miss you over the winter.

So FALL season is in 10 out of 12's this week and will be previewing soon. I hope to have some video clips from the official site next week.

In the meantime....send me photos and stuff. I don't have enough. :)

Home again. I will still be posting photos from the summer as I get them uploaded on the web.

Hope everyone had as much fun this summer as I did.

Don't forget, fall season is just getting going.

Stay in touch people!
