Well I'm doing MUCH better today now that I've slept! It's about 4 pm and I've actually been up for a little while, made the bed, cleaned up after the kitties and myself a little, still need to "swish and swipe" the bathroom and scoop out the kitty litter box but I'm starving so I'm having cake for breakfast. :-P I think I might work some more on the screensaver program I'm learning to use, and study more in the XML book I'm working through. But Final Fantasy is calling me.... and my antsy urges to clean and redecorate the house are kicking in hard too. I may end up doing a little bit of everything and then hours of hours of Final Fantasy....

I unexpectedly got to spend most of yesterday afternoon and evening with Celleigh and Moonwolf over, she called me by accident trying to find Juan at work and I invited them over and Celleigh and I dyed my green streaks back in my hair, and reinforced the red streak in hers, while Moonwolf played on the gamecube. So I have my green streaks back in my hair, just like my little Anime Fae's I've made for my blog here! Yay! ^-^ After we did our hair, Celleigh and I went to Wal-Mart to get King Cake, and we got a pineapple one because it had the prettiest decorations. Then we went to Starbucks and got frappacinos with a second shot of syrup, and a shot of espresso in each of them... I'm afraid I LOVE those and if we were rich I might have one every day till I just EXPLODED with nervous energy into a coffee scented cloud of mist! @-o I also got to go over and see all her furry family at her house, and the puppy has GROWN and he JUMPS so all four legs are above my waist! They were all SO excited to see me I nearly got dragged DOWN when paws caught in my hair! @-@ I got a bunch of pictures and I got to hold the kitten that's grown up now named Mel. All the animals growing up reminds me it's been many moons since I've been over there! They grow so FAST in just a few months!! Every time I've been hitting the "good" part of my health cycle something has come up like sinuses, the flu, the smoke from the neighbors, etc. and I just haven't gotten to be very social through those months. I sometimes feel like a moon going through phases myself, and I keep getting eclipses when it's time for the full moon!

Anyway, looks like I'm in either clean or play game obsessively mode for today, and I'm hoping I feel good and with energy tomorrow for the Superbowl party we've been planning on going to. I'm still not sure what the plan is because we were waiting to hear back from a friend and I don't think we've heard from him yet. I try not to worry but sometimes I do.

Got to see kitties and doggies and more kitties and doggies and doggies and doggies, oh my! Learning to make screensavers!! @-o Staying up waaay tooooo laaaate! Getting ready for diet again by eating ALL the bad goodies I can!!! Ate a quarter of a whiskey fudge cake! @-@ Downstairs neighbors fought big huge shaking building screaming wham thud scared me and I woke Juan up to call police but then the guy ran outside and packed car and left, while yelling, of course. I was relieved to hear two voices still with the yelling after all the loud apartment shaking crashes. :-( Couldn't sleep... stayed up... it's past 8 am now... was going to play Final Fantasy 2 more. I FINISHED my first game the other day! I got to the END of Final Fantasy 1! I've never gotten to the end of a game like that before! Yippieeee! ^-^

I am heroic couplets; most precise
And fond of order. Planned and structured. Nice.
I know, of course, just what I want; I know,
As well, what I will do to make it so.
This doesn't mean that I attempt to shun
Excitement, entertainment, pleasure, fun;
But they must keep their place, like all the rest;
They might be good, but ordered life is best.
What Poetry Form Are You?




I'm terza rima, and I talk and smile.
Where others lock their rhymes and thoughts away
I let mine out, and chatter all the while.

I'm rarely on my own - a wasted day
Is any day that's spent without a friend,
With nothing much to do or hear or say.

I like to be with people, and depend
On company for being entertained;
Which seems a good solution, in the end.
What Poetry Form Are You?



It said I was both of these, but it only gave Juan the option of being ONE thing... so I guess I came really close to being a tie! O-o

Which Completely Random Person Are You!!

I just sorted through six boxes of STUFF!!! O-o And Whoooo-hooooooo!!! I FOUND the title to Juan's old car that's been part of what's prevented him from trading it to his dad for the bigger older car he bought to trade to Juan!!! AND I found the Dance Hall Crashers tape Juan thought was lost and gone forever!! Woooooot! ^-^ I'm being very very good and managed NOT to wake Juan up to share the moment!! Especially since I already woke him up once not realizing he'd had time to fall asleep... when I found the needle nose pliers that have been missing for MONTHS... sitting on a box about ONE FOOT OVER from where they were last seen before going missing!!! I thought he was still awake and burst into the bedroom, "Look honey! It's the Needle Nose PLIERS!!! I FOUND them!!" ...poor guy jumped about 3 feet off the bed while still lying horizontal on it!!! Ooops!! @-o

I had fun throwing out old bills "we don't even HAVE that card anymore, I paid it off, yay!" and finding old papers "ooh look, it's my Final Grade Report" and quite a few cards and letters I wrote Juan... "awwww!" ^-^ I also found a box of clothes and for the first time in my life I threw away a pair of pants that were too torn up to mend or donate! @-o I really AM getting better at letting things go! What's funny is I tried on a pair of pants to see if I could fit them again... they were from the year before Juan and I got married... and I FIT them again!!! Whooo-hooo again! Then I discovered the 6 inch hole along the length of the inseam... the material around WAY too thin to hold stitching... so OUT the went!! I kept the shorts I found that I fit again though. They went back into the laundry so I can wear them!

I feel like the storage closet is finally under control. I counted out room for 16 more boxes if we use the boxes that are about the same size that Juan can bring home from work, so I think I want to box up some of the stuff in the bedroom closet, and just in general around the house, so it feels less cluttered and we mostly have out the things we USE at that time. This means I want to rotate decorations so I can really enjoy them, and pack up old textbooks I want to keep but I'm not going to be reading in the next year or so... and of course pack up Winter stuff when it gets warm enough, and sort out and pack up Summer stuff too actually, so I don't have it ALL in the closet at once. I want to pack up probably most of what is in the bench in the living room, and in the computer desk, and in the hall closet. I'm wanting the hall closet to be a more useful utility and coat closet... we might have to hang hooks for the coats though!

So far so good on getting the apartment less stressful to live in this year. ^-^ I'm glad to feel I'm making progress on one of my new year's resolutions.

Today I had incredible ADVENTURES!!! ^-^ Juan somehow miraculously got home from work EARLY on a SATURDAY!! That just doesn't HAPPEN!! O-@! So I pounced him and tipped us both over the arm of the couch... and then we were STUCK till I slid down to the floor with much yeeping and giggling and goofiness. I somehow managed to hit my ankle on the coffee table on my way down but it got better after the initial sharp impact type pain. We just didn't know what do DO with ourselves with him home so early but we wanted to get out of the house!! Since I'm going back on my stricter diet in February Juan took me to Quiznos for breakfast/lunch since I hadn't eaten anything yet, having stayed up till 10am and slept till 4 pm. I had the new Quiznos sandwich with the chipotle sauce and it was YUMMY! Then we were getting into the car and Juan asked if I wanted to go see what the rates were for the new miniature golf course right next to the parking lot. So we went to check it out... and it turned out they had an arcade room too... and we had a spontaneous date!! Juan got $5 in tokens and we played skee-ball and I got to watch him play pinball!! It was great!! We only got 95 tickets but they had actually cute little trinkets and I ended up with a purple metallic bead necklace AND a paper folding fan with little baby seals on it!! ^-^ I got LOOT!! :-P I'm still wearing the necklace, I put it on right away as we were leaving. This was the first time we've ever been out and about and spent money on an outing kind of thing without it being planned out first. I loved it!! I'm thinking we should try to budget "mad money" for stuff like that more often, so if we ever get an evening unexpectedly again we can grab the mad money and head out for adventures like that again. ^-^ I definitely want to plan going to play the miniature golf course sometime. It was a little crowded tonight but I'm thinking on weeknights it won't be so busy. The guy who worked there and fixed the pinball game when it jammed was talking with us and said he's got TWELVE pinball machines at his home!! So Juan found a kindred pinball spirit!! ~-^

And if that wasn't enough excitement, today is also the One Year Anniversary of the founding of Cynosure, so it's been fun and games and a carnival there since midnight last night! ^-^ I think Juan is addicted to the shockwave games they put up there. ~-^ They made Juan into the Strong Man and since I said I like Insane Clown Posse I ended up a clown on a tricycle!! :-P

I started playing Final Fantasy 1 last night, got about 3-4 hours into the game and then was wise enough to go back to bed and sleep. ^-^ I'm feeling encouraged about the storage room and getting so much sorted out and repacked properly labeled, but I'm tired of STUFF being all over the living room waiting to be taken out of the house. I'd be tempted to put it in the trunk of Juan's car his father is working on trading with him... but I don't have the keys to the car. :-P

I'm thinking I'll probably eat something and play Final Fantasy some more before trying to work on the house again. I'm having dizzy spells and the smoke coming through the walls from next door is terrible, I've had a constant headache for the last 4 days and I'm still not getting over my sinus and throat trouble because the allergy is making it linger. :-( I fall asleep muttering "die smoke! kill the smoke! die smoke, die!" It's getting to me. I don't think I'll ever be well again in this apartment while the neighbors are smoking like this.

I've gone insane... my hubby just came home between stores and I sent him off with my savings to get me a vente frappaccino with an extra shot of espresso and an extra shot of syrup... I'm hoping that'll wake me up and let me make it through cleaning up the house, working more on organizing and sorting the storage closet, and getting the rest of the Christmas Decorations sorted and packed up!! @-@

Yesterday I managed to get SIX BOXES of stuff sorted out and threw out about 2 boxes worth of papers and found and labeled my files of poetry, school notes, and correspondence. I was a bit of a vegetable by the time Juan got home from work though. I'd left the window open because I got too hot in the afternoon but it was chilly by evening because of the weird changing weather. I don't know how long my cleaning drive will last this time around but I'm hoping to get the living room and bedroom set up the way I want them, and the storage room actually storing all clearly labeled boxes we can get to and change out when the season or need for them comes. I know I packed up winter clothes but we only found one box of them so far, so I've got a little bit of a shortage on sweaters at the moment! Anyway, I mainly want the storage closet to be an accessable and USEFUL storage closet, and my bedroom and living room to NOT feel like storage closets!! :-P And not to be decorated with Christmas decorations all through the rest of Winter and then Spring...

I now have 8 boxes of stuff waiting to be given away sitting around filling up the dining room area, it's getting on my nerves. I'm thinking about either putting it back in one area of the storage closet, or seeing if there's room in the trunk of the car for Juan to take it out of the house at least.

My blog is working, my blog is working! Whoooohooooo! ^-^ I have a ton of catching up to do, need to post about my birthday at least, but for now I'm just relieved to have my blog working again, and a nice new set of graphics I was inspired to make tonight. ^-^ I also added a ton of links I use a lot, and took out old or dead links to friends sites or blogs they aren't using anymore. So if you see I used to link to you and now I don't, please send me the current site and url you're at!! (hint hint Lunacorn... if you're reading this.... ~-^)
