I am a weird

Last night I fell asleep around 10-10:30. I woke up at some point, which felt like 3 am but was really 11:45 pm (what the hell?). Well I woke up because I have the world's smallest bladder and I had to pee really badly. Waking up after only about an hour of sleep makes you feel really tired. Well, I had to pee badly and when I was peeing it was taking so long to get it all out (I am weird, when I have to go really bad it takes me forever). Well while I was sitting there I kept falling asleep. Luckily I woke up long enough to get back to bed. Although it would have been awesome if I spent the whole night sleeping on the toilet. I am so cool.

Quote of the Week and Then Some

"I don't have a belly, I just have a strong core." --anonymous

On Sunday Edgar and I went and picked out some more curtains for our house. Fun times. Or not. I am the one who shops and buys based on style, color and cuteness. Edgar shops for functionality--regardless if the curtains he wanted to buy for the back door (located in the laundry room area) were off white, thick, formal and had a silk cord to tie them back. Not to mention, they were in the "formal" section. Oy vey. And when I explained that this is the wrong style he went into his rant about how society's and other people's opinions shouldn't dictate which curtains you buy. So I told him it's not about what other people think (okay, only a little), it's about what I like and I don't want formal curtains on our back door! I mean, we don't even have formal curtains in our living room! My house isn't formal and my style at this point in my life is more modern and less formal/traditional. Anyway, we ended up with curtains that we both like, but it took some teeth pulling.

Edgar's mom and sister are in town and his sister bought us these two framed pictures that I HATE HATE HATE. We had to hang them because I didn't want her to be hurt. But I really HATE them. Anyway, the picutes go together and should be hung close to each other, but instead Edgar (home decorator that he is) decided to hang them across the room from each other. UGH. Anyway, I do need to decorate more by hanging pictures up. Do you guys have any tips/rules that might help me?? I'm not saying I am so great at this, but I think I am slightly better in this category than Edgar. Don't get me wrong, there are things that he is great at that I wouldn't even know how to attempt, but I just think I am better at decorating. Last night at dinner with his family he mentioned how he should be a home decorator. And I say again, Oy Vey!

An Excerpt from the Story of My Life

I attended a Christian school for pre-school and kindergarden. We had been rehearsing a play for either Christmas or Easter, I'm not really sure which. One day after school when I was back home, I began crawling around on my hands and knees and I said, "I'm a donkey, ride me Jesus." This is the point when my parents decided that they had better get me out of Christian school-FAST!
This pretty much set the tone for the next 20 or so years.

Happy Day

I want to wish a Happy Father's Day to my totally rad Dad! You are the best. Thanks for letting me be your princess for all of these years! We love you! (please take note that in this picture Sara is communicating her gang symbol to her fellow gangstas)

Also, Happy 21st Birthday to Sara, my lovely baby sister. Party on! Excellent!

WF, 24 looking for HM, 24-35

I'm a white female, age 24 and I am looking for a homosexual male, age 24-35 for shopping excursions, spa days, late night movies, Starbucks frappucinos, red wine, cuddling and friendship. You have to like fashion, cooking and reading tabloid magazines. Do you know who Ken Paves is??? You have to be what Ken is to Jessica Simpson. We will be the best of friends and you will go everywhere with me. You will be required to spend the night in bed with me when Edgar is out of town. We will have slumber parties together and tell each other secrets and cry over sappy movies like Under the Tuscan Sun. You will be my platonic boyfriend and best friend. I'm looking for a gay best friend who is not overly fruity, but you can't be too "manly" either. If you wear flannel shirts, you are probably not what I'm looking for. I love gay men. Are you the gay man for me??? Applications are being accepted immediately.

Just in case you had forgotten...

I really love Jessica Simpson!

Sarah and I are going to see Ashlee Simpson in concert on June 29! Do you think Jessica will be there too?? I would freak out. Like, seriously freak out.

I'm a big kid now!

Edgar and I purchased a bedroom set last week from a local furniture store! I tried to upload a picture, but it didn't work. But it's BEAUTIFUL and I love it!!!!
Edgar has been out of town since Friday. He gets back tomorrow, but I will be out of town for the night on business. So I won't see him until Tuesday night. It's nice to be alone for a little bit-like half a day-but then I was ready for him to come home. It's just not the same without him here. I miss him. I didn't think I would miss him as much as I do!!! I am pathetic...I've turned into Sarah!! ;-)
I got a lot done this weekend. Shopping, cleaning, exercise.

Last night I even made homemade dog treats!

Stay tuned for more updates....

My Scarlet Letter

I went a few days ago to get my car's state inspection done. I thought for sure it would pass since Edgar and his dad and uncle did some work on it earlier this year. Well, it didn't. Apparently the left ball joint needs to be replaced and to get to the left ball joint you have to remove the right, so basically it just makes sense to replace them both. And this will cost about $600-650!! Not only that, but they also checked my air conditioning for me and stuff like that. My brake lines and my air conditioning filters need to be fixed, bringing the grand total to up around $1,500!! WHAT?!! Like I have $1,500 to spend on my Jeep!! Heck no! I thought about possibly selling it (It's a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it has around 135,000 miles on it) I might be able to get a couple dollars for it, but do I want to have car payments? If i got a car it would probably be a used Civic or something like that. Edgar and I discussed and we decided I'd get everything fixed and keep it at least another year--even if I can sell it for hardly anything, it will be worth the money in that I went another year driving a car that has already been paid for. In the meantime though, I've been driving around with a pink REJECTION sticked on my car and it is not cool. I feel like it might as well say REJECT. It just keeps making me think of the big "A" in The Scarlet Letter. Let's face it, my car and I are both big rejects...


I keep having this recurring dream that I am taking 4 classes at a college. I stop going to Math class for some reason and then I think that the class has ended for the semester. Then it's nearing the end of the semester and I realize that the class has still been going on, but I haven't been going. Since it's been so long since I've been and there is only a class or two left, I decide that I am not going to go to it. I get really worried about telling my dad that I am basically going to fail a class, but somehow hope that the low grade I got on the first test earlier in the semester will allow me to at least pass the class. But I am just really anxious throughout the dream because I don't want to fail because I've never failed a class and I don't want to have to tell my dad that I just stopped going to the class and that's why I failed.

I've had this dream 2 or 3 times now. It's really weird. I wonder what it means...
