I heart Fridays!

Happy Friday everyone. Well it's been an uneventful couple of days for me. Let's see what's pressing that everyone should know. We've officially switched back to T-Mobile from Verizon. Although we really LOVED our new phones with Verizon, the call quality was not very good, especially when talking to each other. And seriously, that's who we talk to the most, so why compromise service there! We have upgraded our phones with T-Mobile and will have the Hotspot @ Home service so that coverage at our house should be a lot better! Will let you know how it goes and what I think of the phones and service. So there has been some drama at work this week, but I'm not sure where things stand at the moment, will update you all when I know more. I had a soccer game last night, although my team lost, I played a pretty good game and ran my butt off. I love playing soccer, such a nice workout and a good place for me to get my aggression/competitiveness out. he he. Always a good thing, otherwise I try to wrestle Kerry to the ground...or pick fights for no reason. Not Good! Happy Weekend!

Necks are great...maybe?!?

Happy Wednesday in blogland everyone. Here is my exciting news for the day. My neck is "out". Now, I don't mean that it left me to go date someone elses's head OR that it is now gay (although being an extension of my body does this in fact make my neck gay). I mean that one or more of the bony structures in my neck is not in place. Now this in itself, not a regular occurrence, however has been happening more frequently of late. Those of you in the know recall that we were in a car accident in November, whereby the smokey construction worker driver rear ended the car behind us which hit us. Good times. I was at the chiropractor on Monday and he did an adjustment, but somehow Monday night my neck went "out" and has not come back into place. Thank goodness I have another appointment tonight as this makes sleeping a precarious situation for me, which as we all know, NEVER a good thing. Hello over here, I'll be the psycho with bloodshot eyes due to lack of sleep randomly lashing out at you with whatever emotional state I'm feeling at the time. There does that sum it up? On a happy note, the Storm won last night, and the wife and I had a good time at the game. The before/after game times could have used some work,but hey, all in good time my pretty all in good time.. HUGS! "A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in the doctor's book." ~Irish Proverb

Another day, another dollar..

So some of you may know already, but the company that I work for was purchased by another company today. Of course, its super early stages, so not much to report, but suffice to say happy that I apparently will be keeping my job. This is a good thing. Job keeps me in soccer cleats and food....wait that might be Kerry. I'll get back to you on this one. So it's been a few days since my last post. I meant to post daily, but seriously folks, the weekends are probably a bit off limits for me and blogging. Its just not going to happen. In fact, I mostly like to avoid the computer completely on the weekend, aside from doing finances. I mean, I've never been one to say sit on the computer for hours and hours on end (well prior to the end of college anyway). I mean seriously, when you have a desk job, you realize..the internet is finite in the sense of what is out there that you are interested in. Go figure! Another Storm game tonight, so good times with my wife. "The idea is not to block every shot. The idea is to make your opponent believe that you might block every shot." ~Bill Russell

Marinate my A**

Okay, so random headline, I know. But here's the deal. We are having a BBQ at the head boss's house tonight, so I said, hey I'll marinate some veggies for the grill. Great idea, and healthy and I feel good about it. Sweet! So I cut up veggies last night all gourmet like, put in some teriyaki sauce in a Pyrex container and shake it around and put it in the fridge. So when I get home from soccer to check on it and stir it around I notice that it has leaked into the fridge just a bit. Okay not to panic, even though I'm extremely exhausted from a lack of sleep the night before and have been crying like a 4 year old off and on throughout the evening, I persevere. I clean it up, slap that baby back in the fridge and resolve to keep it "level" so as not to promote more leakage. Cut to this morning, as we all know, I am NOT a morning person. So I'm stumbling around the kitchen and decide to place said vegetables into a paper bag that would help keep them level. Yeah, didn't work, sauce spilled all over the bag. Ended up transferring the whole gamut into a new corning ware container with lid. Seemed pretty air tight, but I decided to take it easy just in case and kept it level, got it into the passenger floor of my car. SWEET! Well 1/2 way through my long ass drive to work today I notice the smell of teriyaki, but figured, hey, probably still on my hands from cleaning it this morning. OH NO, not on my hands, on my car floor. And of course all I had to clean it up with was a kleenex and some water. Yeah good times. But was trying to be thankful not on my clothes. Got into the office after hauling this heavy thing from the parking garage. Look down, yeah, teriyaki all over my shirt and jacket. Got it cleaned up, but yeah, hate vegetables in marinade at the moment. Never again dear god. Making vegetables at home only-no transporting. In the meantime I remind myself...

Rah Rah, Go TEAM!

So, our beloved Storm lost last night to Detroit. The Detroit Shock, in case you were not informed, won the WNBA title last year. They also happen to have a coach that I love to hate, Bill Laimbeer! He was known as one of the "bad boys" of the NBA during his 14 years of play. And although from all accounts most of his players love him as a coach, as the coach of someone other than my team, I think he tries intimidating tactics and is generally annoying on the court. I'm always happy when the referees give him a technical because I find it entertaining. But he does have some great players on his team, as evidenced by their playing last night. That being said, we're not even 1/2 way through the season, so the Storm could still end up doing just fine. Hopefully we will start cohesing more as a team, seems like our chemistry is off right now. Speaking of, if you have time, please go to WNBA.com and vote for these people for allstars in the West Conference-Lauren Jackson (love me some LJ), Sue Bird, Betty Lennox, Janelle Burse, and Iziane Castro-Marques (she's a write in). On another note, there is a soccer tournament in Redmond this weekend called Jet City. I didn't realize, until Tuesday of this week, that this tournament was happening this weekend. I was hoping someone would invite me to play on it this year, but alas, that did not happen. I found out that one of the girls coordinating it from my team is one that I've historically thought does not like me very much, so this isn't a big shocker, but quite a few of my teammates are playing and were asking if I was playing too. Makes me feel kinda dumb when I'm like "No, I wasn't invited" and they all think that's dumb. But hey, at least its nice to know some of them want me there. Perhaps I will be Jet City bound next year. "A champion is someone who does not settle for that day's practice, that day's competition, that day's performance. They are always striving to be better.

I LOVE soccer!

Okay, so I love soccer, I love playing, I like watching it, you get the picture here right?!? Here's what I don't love...I am prone to bruises and/or injuries. So currently I have two big ugly bruises on my right leg. As well as a 2 inch blister on the instep of my right foot. Now, odd place for me to get a blister I know, but bear with me, I'll explain. About 2 months ago I was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis (sp?). I was prescribed orthotics which has helped relieve some of the pain in my left heel. So, I got them adjusted last week because they would not fit in my soccer shoes, which frankly is the MAIN place I should be wearing them. So wore them on Sunday, they were fine. Wore them last night, got some rocks in my shoes, noticed it was hurting-figured it was the rocks, cleaned shoes out at 1/2 time...not the rocks, ORTHOTIC hell. Had to play second half as we had 2 people get injured and were out. Yeah good times. "And I came close to losing a part of my foot on two occasions. I hope I'm consistently lucky and that the next time I develop a blister or step on something sharp, that I don't go as far as I did on those two times."~ Mary Tyler Moore (yeah, smart lady Mary Tyler Moore, should listen to her more often)

Homespun Fashions

Happy Tuesday everyone. So today I am wearing a new skirt. Now, this is not just any skirt, this is an extra special skirt. Why??? may you ask. Well it is because I MADE it. That's right. Bought the fabric and notions myself, sewed this baby up, and voila, two weeks later and I'm wearing my own creation. It is a bit nerve wracking to be at work wearing something you made. I feel a bit like the poor relation cousin, but seriously here is why I did it. 1. Yes it is cheaper to make than to buy it, even having put in my own time. Fabric and notions cost me about 15 bucks for this skirt and it only took me a few hours to make (spread out over a few days). 2. I am not exactly a cookie cutter type size. Hello! I am six feet tall and although fairly well balanced, I have a small waist compared to my thighs-so here you go. Easier to make my own clothes. I'm hoping to advance into some pants, shorts, and shirts sometime next year, but don't hold your breath on that one. Ha ha. But hey, I did blog for the second day in a row, so give me some credit for that. Signing off with... "Elly May! Don't spit from a moving vehicle. Wait till it's stopped."

I'm Baaaack

Okay, at some serious prompting from some friends, I have decided to resume my blogging under another name/title. So, here we are again, my blogsphere friends. How have you all been? Seriously, its Monday, which undoubtedly means I am tired (hell I'm always tired, this is not new). Today finds me hard at work, as usual. My boss has the day off, so I am coordinating stuff and working hard. I actually LIKE busy days/times as my day goes much faster and I feel like I accomplished a lot! Of course, I still have some things to tackle at the house like..oh..folding/putting away laundry, vaccumming, cleaning the bathrooms. GOD I'm such a housewife. Happy Dayz peeps! Talk to you later.
