So guess who is allergic to bee stings? Me!!!!!
I learn something new everyday. Oh and my throat closing up due to a bee sting is a completely different feeling than when it closes due to shrimp. And my hand swelling up like a catchers mitt, yea that was cool. I can't close my fist or put my wedding rings on. It even hurts to type this. ugh. damn bee.

I have a real post comming soon.

Every room in the house has been painted at least once since we moved in almost three years ago (some rooms have their third coat of a different color) except I could never comit to our bedroom. I picked a color that I liked and I kept going back and fourth with it. It is Sherwin Williams Reef Blue (I think) it is a nice deep tone light blue if that makes sense. Well my sister and her boyfriend painted our bedroom for us while we were on our honey moon and they were supposed to buy the bed set that I registered for except the bed set was discontinued and Morgan didn't want to buy something until she was SURE I liked it.

Except I planned the paint color and the bedroom around the damn duvet. We have DARK wood and I wanted this airy feeling with the walls and the rest of the material. Well it has been 6 months and I finally did our room. Filene's near us is going out of business so I got a $300 down micro suede comforter for $126.00, a coordinating bed skirt regularly $60.00; for $18.00 and the assorted decorator pillows were on sale for $10.00 (I think they were all around $35.00 or $40.00 per pillow). HOLY COW what a deal. Well I went to LNT today and got the silk curtains and curtain rod to match along with the Euro Style pillow and some Euro shams that were on clearance for $8.99 each (WOW! regularly $29.00 each!)

I had a lamp and rought iron wall candle thingy that was in the basement collecting dust so I took them outside and gave them a coat of white spray paint and voila, this is what we have...

(keep in mind that my room is small-ish not huge like the new construction houses)This view is from the door looking in at the room.



(all of my pillows)


This is my dresser that needs some decorating help but I haven't gotten to that part yet.


Now along the wall that I don't show you is Kevin's tall dresser and a non-matching kitty cornered cabinet with a tv on it. We are trying to find something to do with that corner. I want to make a headboard and I have an old antique mirror that I want to strip and I am not sure if I should try to match the dark stain on the rest of the furniture or if I should white wash it. Kevin wants to go to Cardi's and buy the mirror and the Headboard to match our set, but dude that is going to be like $1,500 and I told him we don't need it.

Well that was my weekend project. I have to go play with my dog now.

A good friend of mine asked me yesterday, "what do you want to do? What makes you happy?" and the sad thing is; I didn't have an answer. What do I want to do? Well I would love to blow glass and make art, I would love to paint, or decorate or shop even. But I can't make a living off of this stuff because I have not talent. Also lacking in the ambition department aswell. I am a creative person, but I don't have enough creativity to make a living off of it. I also don't have the funds to pay the bills that way either. I think this type of thinking (find work doing something you love blah blah blah) works well for people who have LOTS of talent and creativity. Not for 50% people like myself.

Yeap. That is what I consider myself; a 50% person. I am only about 50% into everything I do. I don't know why either. I have tried to figure that out but I never get to the bottom of it so I give up. I am good at things, but I am not great at anything I do. I used to think this was ok, but now I am not so sure.

I am at a crossroads in my life. This much I know; what I don't know is what I am supposed to do. Life; my life to be more exact, is telling me something. It is showing me what I am supposed to do, what my purpose is supposed to be except, I can't hear it nor can I see it. It is driving me crazy. I lay awake at night trying to figure it out. I sit and stare at blank paper thinking that maybe thoughts and words will start filling up the paper with ideas and things that I want to do with my life. Nothing happens.

I went for a walk today. Put on my MP3 player and took Abbey with me. I was walking and thinking and thinking and walking and only ended up back at home. Now I sit. Thinking and sitting, sitting and thinking... vicious cycle.

I am very lucky to have an amazing husband who supports me and lets me be me. Now I just need to find out what I am supposed to be and do.

I have been sick. Very sick actually. Got out of the hospital the other day. I love modern medicine. They don't really know WHAT is wrong, we know that it isn't Mono, Lyme, EEE, um what else? So it must be viral.

Still don't feel good and we are going on week 5 of the pains in the neck, the severe headache and the constant lethargic feeling.

Anyway it doesn't matter because...

1) I am going to see Maroon 5 on New Year's Eve up at Mohegan Sun
2) We have tickets for Motley Crue in March.

YYYYYEEEESSSSS!!!!!!

I hope you are all doing well and I hope you don't ever feel like I have lately; physically and emotionally. Good bye 2005 the bitter sweet year that it was.

I hate my job. Like I loathe every second I am there. However it was nice to be able to sit down and pay every single bill I have for the month. sigh. Something will come along; until then I will continue to work in cubicle hell for the most unproductive, unorganized billion dollar company in the world. I will sit and stare at my desk while I open mail because they have not trained me yet to do my job, they probably won't get to train me to do that until February or March; maybe. BUT! I was trained to do processing-except they don't have me processing. Hey I will work for $17.00/hr to open up the mail. The temps do it but they get paid $10.00. WHAT EVER!

Things here have been pretty rocky since we got back from the honeymoon. Kevin and I are holding together; but everything else sucks shit. I am exfoliating people from my life that I have no need/use for. I am ever changing and some people just bring me down; I needed to unload the baggage. It just hurts and it plain sucks.

I am so exhaused. Must go eat and watch tv.

ta-ta.

Ugh. My tummy hurts and I woke up with a headache the size of this state. I took something for the headache around 5 am; but my tummy hurts still. I hate being hung overish.

Oh well my own damn fault. When am I going to learn?

A really good paying job too! Well at least what I consider good paying for a college drop out! (does happy dance around the house)
I wish I could tell you what it is that I will be doing, but somehow I am not 100% clear on that. I am working for an insurance company that deals with suplimentary insurance through companies; anyway I will be processing and analizing data and doing spread sheets and stuff. Whatever I have a job and I am making $17.00 an hour! whoo hoo. go me!!!

Kevin took me out to celebrate tonight. I had a bit too much to drink and I have to get up at 8 am tomorrow to go help Melissa do errands for the wedding on Saturday. Did I mention that Kevin and I are in a wedding together on Saturday???? Um, yea. and I have to get my dress tomorrow from the dress shop because they screwed up on the original dress!!

Excitement galore and I am drunk !!!yea haw!
