Super big thank you for all the recs yesterday! I am now prepared in case of an extended power and/or internet outage! We got lucky and the storms broke up / lost strength coming across the mountains, so we got some wind and rain, but not much else. My bro's gf broke down on the way home yesterday, though, and was sitting on the side of the road waiting for her dad to come get her and Alex (the middle child, he's 7), and a power line fell across the road in front of her. Made for quite a long trip home, because that's the only road that goes up the mountain from this side.

I have a headache. It's not a migraine, but it's like it's still part of the migraine hangover? I don't know how to explain it, but it sucks and I wish it would go away. I could be in box seats at the Salem Red Sox game right now, but it's 96* out there with like 80% humidity and there was no way. I was actually supposed to go to Warped today in Va Beach (and take Bela) but that didn't work out for money reasons. Blah!

Did I tell yall that I passed the first set of tests for one of the jobs I applied for? With a migraine, I still managed to finish ahead of time and with flying colors, so yay me! I go back on Aug 14 for more tests. Joy joy.

Dreamed last night I was working in a new call center, doing insurance sales. Self, that is not an appropriate aspiration! Also dreamed I was writing fanfic about Clint Barton going blind. I don't know who to blame that one on, but I'm blaming it on someone other than myself.

I've got the DVR set to record Baby Daddy and Royal Pains for me, so I'm gonna go lay in front of the fan and try to figure out where I'm getting the money for the kids' tuition. Love yall!

Idk what's worse - the stupid insomnia or the fucking dreams I have when I do manage a couple hours sleep. Also, I hate feeling like I'm complaining all the time. My life seems to be full of bitching and whining lately. I know, I know, if I don't like it, I need to do something about it other than complain.

Today, I'm thinking happy thoughts. Maybe enough happy thoughts that I could fly. If only I had some faerie dust. Or cheeto powder.

You should all tell me your happy thought for the day! <3

So, me and my crazy ass dreams, right? Last night, I dreamed I was getting married to William Beckett. Yes, I know that William is already married and that he & Christine have an adorable little girl together and are presumably happy to some extent. Also, marriage isn't my thing and even though I kinda adore William most of the time, he's really not my type. But apparently he and I had become friends and made some sort of deal with one another. and it was the weirdest sort of "wedding" ever because we were all in the gym of the elementary school here, and there were like a dozen couples getting married one at a time. And after each ceremony part there were dances, and they were specific ones. Like, the father/daughter dance had to be a waltz and the mother/son dance had to be something else. I blame that part on DWTS. Anyway, before it was our turn, I was freaking out & snuck off to the bathroom, and the bathroom said "men" but had a sign saying "women" taped over it. (I remember the most unimportant details. Plus, I know that's the women's bathroom b/c we were at the elementary school. I went there for 6 years, my brothers & Harley went there, my kids are there now. I know my school.) My friend Chris was in the bathroom with his girlfriend Katie, b/c apparently she was also freaking out about getting married. Then, while I was hiding in the bathroom trying to figure out a way out of the nonsense, Gabe Saporta came in and gave me this big earnest speech about how important our deal was and how great a guy William was and why I couldn't back out. Idek.

I don't know what happened next b/c Davey crawled into my bed and woke me up. Still, crazy ass dream.

In other news, I helped out with my cousin's Habitat House yesterday. I spent the morning clearing brush and cutting down trees and nonsense, and I spent the afternoon helping dig a trench around the foundation of the house for the drainage pipe and then filling it back up with gravel. Breaking up rocks and shoveling gravel is harder then you'd think! This morning, I hurt in my upper arms, the front of my shoulders, and across my chest. It's hard to move, lol. But my CTS isn't bothering me as much so I'm thinking of annoying the fuck out of everyone via txt/email, lol. I can handle my crackberry easier than I can handle my laptop.

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! And HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY to everyone on my flist! (Not just the mommies, but the aunties and the pet!mommies too!)

So, we're only three days into the month and I already fail at the attempt to post something every day. Ugh.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO [livejournal.com profile] incapricious! Love you, sweetheart! (and if I'm quick, I'll actually get this posted while it's still your birthday here on the east coast, lol!)

I'm full of whine today, srsly, so I'll spare yall. My current happy place is Johnny Weir, so I'll spare yall that as well, since I'm sure the only people that want to hear about him are already involved in the email chain. (and yes, I know that I owe you story! But I have to get caught up on LJ first!)

30 days til I go to Texas! YAY!!

Um, what else...

I saw this tweet from Jepha last week and immediately thought of body swap. Yeah, idek.

I had a dream last night that me and [livejournal.com profile] jackiesjunkie and [livejournal.com profile] wordsindreams ran in to Brian Schechter and he bought us ice cream. I have no idea how Alli got involved in that scenario.

Did I tell yall that Pam and Jay found out they're having a boy? They wanna name him Neville. :) (they were gonna name him Seamus, but Mom made them change their minds.)

My cousin... Alex? Maybe Spencer? I don't think it was Ryan, but it was one of the three. Anyway, they started this silly little thing on facebook, and I figured I'd share it here as well b/c it's a sweet idea, and I know several of us have done something like it before.

So, our network at home is running so ridiculously slow. It makes me wanna scream; idk what's up with it but I can't handle it. There is no reason it should be acting like this!

I have no less than twenty drabbles in my notebook that need be typed up. until that's done, I don't think it'd be fair to ask for more prompts, so instead, let's do the picture meme thing! Tell me one to three things in my life that you'd like me to take a picture of, and I will. (unless you ask for a picture of me; those aren't likely to appear)

I don't want to sleep b/c dreams are not my friend lately, but I'm sleepy. :( Also, I can't find my ipod. And I wanna bitch about work today, but the internet connectivity keeps resetting and it's pissing me off. Whatever. Hopefully it'll work better tomorrow night. :)

Was having some crazyass dream where there was this random disease killing people & MikeyWay had a cure, so we were all trying to find MikeyWay, but no one knew who he was, much less where he was. So we started asking for Pete instead because people know Pete and we figured if anyone knew how to find Mikey, it was Pete Wentz. Yeah, idk either.

So, I always have crazy ass dreams, and the past couple of nights they have been completely ridiculous. I wouldn't even know where to start explaining them, but one part of it involved being rescued from a sinking ship by [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 & [livejournal.com profile] phaballa and going to [livejournal.com profile] wendy's house (which is probably symbolic of something) and there was this tiny kitten we rescued from the ship from inside a stove and it's name was Pancake. Yeah, idk.

The night before, part of my dream included a hotel with a beach in the basement. I'm talking sand and surf and sunshine, THE WORKS. I blame Phineas & Ferb.

Crazy ass fucking dreams, yall, idek.

One of them was fanfic, b/c my brain is crazy, and it involved Brendon and The Used. Yeah, leave it to me, right?

The other... well, I'm not quite sure what was going on, but there were this huge outdoor venue stages that were made of concrete steps/tiers and I'm not even sure what we were doing. Then I got brought into some place where I met the people from Warehouse 13 and also Harry Potter. Then [livejournal.com profile] keladry_lupin and I were in trouble for using magic, and Draco Malfoy was mad at us for making it rain inside his library. The last part of it involved something going on at James River High School, but I don't remember what b/c Davey woke me up to tell me about HIS scary dream where there were water snakes and alligators and polar bears in the lake by PawPaws and one of them ate his brother. Davey says he doesn't want Ronnie to get eaten for real because then he'd have no one to play with.

Yeah, apparently crazy dreams run along with the general crazy in my family?

I need a dream icon.
why_me_why_not: (Default)
I don't even remember exactly what I was dreaming but it was really fucking cracked out. I think maybe someone is putting drugs in my meds again, wtf?

Also, [livejournal.com profile] fangs_up1 scared the fuck out of me this morning. Idk why, but when I hear a man's voice, I either think it's my ex and/or his friends or I think it's the cops, both of which are bad news situations, especially when I'm not fully awake. Yeah, I know it's not rational. But I heard Johnathan this morning as I was still mostly asleep and already kinda freaked by my dreams, and it was like I was instantly awake and panicking. B/c I'm a freak, apparently, and the sound of a man at the door gives me a panic attack. *fail* I don't know when Johnathan's voice changed, though, lol.

I was going to give him a hard time about it, but it wasn't worth getting out of bed for, haha.

Off work today! I'm going back to sleep for a couple hours, gotta take the boys to meet their teachers later this afternoon. :)
why_me_why_not: (need a hug)
I don't know what I was dreaming last night/this morning, but I woke up in the middle of a panic attack and was shaking so much I couldn't even pick up my phone (b/c some fucktard was calling me at 6:30 in the morning). Now, three hours later and a few errands later, I'm still shaking (which was definitely interesting when I was trying to get dinner in the crockpot - luckily I didn't cut myself but it took some concentration) and my chest hurts when I breathe and I feel like I'm gonna puke. :(

BUT! I'm off work tomorrow and I'm going to keep the kids home from daycamp and we're gonna do something. I'm thinking maybe Dixie Caverns, because it's nice and cool in there and we haven't been in a while. I need to get a shower and wash dishes before I go to work, but my head's all fuzzy-dizzy at the moment, so that's gonna have to wait.

Happy Wednesday everyone!! <3

I feel like I want to make an LJ post, but I really don't have anything of interest to say.

My dad drives me crazy. Somehow "will you run me up to [boss's house] to feed the chickens?" led to helping feed/water the chickens, taking pictures of the garden, picking salad-fixings out of the garden, going to hear Danny's band play a couple songs at the event they were at, stopping by to see my dad's oldest bestest friend, going up to the hospital (this required a stop beforehand to get flowers and chocolate, and during the visit required us wheeling Brandy outside and across the road to smoke "under the bridge like trolls"), stopping by my aunt Nancy's house, and not getting home until 8:30 when I planned to be home by 5. Good times. Also, wildlife was not my friend today, including the cow that was in the road and just mooed at me for a few minutes before she moved, and the black snake in the chicken feed bag.

Meant to text Jon today and ask if he had fun last night, but I forgot. Probably better that I didn't, anyway, b/c he likes to send pictures. Perv.

Which reminds me, the other pervy Jon, the one that was in my dream last night... dude, I NEVER have fandom-related dreams! Like, EVER. Occasionally other fangirls will be in my dreams (especially [livejournal.com profile] wendy and [livejournal.com profile] phaballa, and [livejournal.com profile] casualyobsessed who doesn't even count b/c she's MY SISTER and has always been part of my dreams), but not actual fandom stuff. And I'm not really feeling the panic-love lately, wasn't even feeling it before the divorce, but DAMN. I wouldn't say no to a repeat of that dream, lol.

I start my new job tomorrow. Everyone wish me luck? I don't know what anything is going to be like, but I'm sure that [livejournal.com profile] reallythateasy and [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000, at least, will know my break schedule by the end of the day, lol.

Hey [livejournal.com profile] yana_ambf - did you see this? I still owe you fic, don't I? One of you girls (you know who you are) should encourage me to finish this Shelter fic before I write something else. The werewolves can totally wait! <3
why_me_why_not: (reeses heart)
I had a dream I went to visit [livejournal.com profile] wendy and she had a new puppy, and Max and Val were not happy about that situation. The new puppy (who was a relatively little furball of yellow lab and was named Klondike) kept wanting to roughhouse and play, but Max and Val weren't having any of that. Also, there was talk of making a children's book called Wendy the Librarian (complete with ridiculous rhymes like "Read the cover to see what it's about, then bring your books to Wendy when you're ready to check out!") and we were trying to figure out who we could get to illustrate it for us. Yeah, I don't know.

Why don't I have an "I <3 Wendy" icon? I need one.

Our internet connection is only working at random. Apparently I'm not quite as awesome as I had thought. But I'll be around on and off all day. Ronnie had to go to the dentist this morning to have a tooth pulled, so I'm stuck here til tball time this evening. Last game. YAY! (also, [livejournal.com profile] mimiheart? I hope Kyle's feeling better. Kids with toothaches = not fun at all)

I had this crazy crazyass dream last night/early this morning. I blame it on the fact that I kinda OD'd on NSYNC music & The Dresden Files books this weekend (for those of you who have read the books, I finished book 6). The first part of my dream I don't rightly remember, except that it was strange and kinda reminiscient of watching a fanfic movie. There were NSYNC members and it wasn't happy at all, and it was like darkfic, dark-themed, but also took place in thishuge abandoned warehouse or something, like concrete walls and blocks of windows that were impossible to see through. I don't know, it was kinda fucked up. I'm pretty sure I don't want to remember it.

The second part of my dream featured me and Andrea and JC and some random people I don't know. And vampires. I'm not sure what kind of vampires b/c they looked like Red Court but it was that time of evening where the sun has disappeared but it's not dark yet, so I don't know. If they were Reds and Reds are weakened by sunlight, then these must've been pretty powerful b/c they were still pretty strong. And Dresden was involved & he created a pretty large protection circle around an area of dirt, and we were pissing off the vampires by playing baseball within the circle where they couldn't reach us. I don't know how the balls we missed were crossing the lines of the circle without breaking it. The vampires started threatening/reasoning with us, trying to get us to step outside the circle, and people were doing it (without breaking the circle still, I'm really not sure how that worked) and being like devoured by the vampires -- like a bloody, limb-ripping feeding frenzy. More like Black Court Vampires, I guess.

Somehow we (me, Andrea, JC, Dresden) managed to escape and we were piled into an old pickup going down some backcountry road and had just passed this carload of evil-looking people when a report came across the radio that was an APB for us. Then I woke up.

I think I need to watch what I eat before I go to bed...

Also? I found a $20 bill tucked into one of the pockets of my notebook!

Now, I need to go try and email [livejournal.com profile] irisgirl12000 while I have access.
why_me_why_not: (happy birthday by gsd82)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GELSEY!!!


It's [livejournal.com profile] gelsey's birthday! I hope it's a great one, sweetheart!

I had a really strange dream last night that [livejournal.com profile] wook77 and I were at a party with hobbits (not the short, hairy-feeted hobbits, but the Dom & Billy & Elijah & Sean hobbits) and we were in this huge house somewhere in Tennessee and we were following Dom around and trying to find a birthday cake for someone. I dunno, even my dreams are on crack.

I hate my coworkers. Grrr. Had the most craptastic day and if it wasn't for alli I think I might have gone crazy.

There is a posting for a receptionist job within our company, which I'm more than qualified for and which is better money, but I'm not sure I can go back to sitting in an office or behind a desk.

De said the other day that she was writing (on her bigbang fic and it's so awesome and I can't wait for her to post it so I can make everyone read it) and put in [insert sex here]. I laughed, but only because I do the same thing. Except most of the time I just wanna put "and then there was sex, which is really incredibly hot in my head. Sorry I can't put it into words for you" and then continue my story and post it like that.

There's my randomness for Tuesday. Now we're off to tball practice.
