so much for my resolution...

I haven't blogged since I said I would blog more. Ha, typical.

Not sure if I'm going to finish my 30 days thing. I just don't seem to be as interested anymore. Another typical thing of me, I get over it fast. I can always go back to it.

January so far has been a semi eventful one.

I got so lucky to have Ashley and Leslie come and visit for close to a week :D it was so much fun. We drank and ate maybe a little too much but had a good time. Went to Disneyland, wandered around Orange (I freaking love that city, I need to live there already), wandered around LA and saw Quentin Tarantino in the parking garage at the City Walk after joking around the entire day about seeing celebrities. Two awesome revelations came out from this trip and one bad one.

  • Ashley is attempting to make her move out to NYC by October this year
    • Actually this could count as a good and a bad. I don't want her to be far away but she is living out her dream so there's no way I would stand in her way. Plus it gives me an excuse to go out there
  • Leslie wants to move down here!!! 
    •  Which is the chance for me to get out of Eileen's house, in March it will be a year!
  • Ashley got sick... she texted me to warn me after she got home
    • Which in turn since all 3 of us were sleeping in the same small room got me sick as well but I was good for a day then seriously felt like I was going to die. I hadn't felt this sick since I had pneumonia.
So this sickness has been plaguing me till about now... it's not quite gone yet but it's on it's way. I was too stubborn to go to the doctor for the most part. But I gave gone through fevers, coughs, runny nose up the eye, cold sore and now that I got on antibiotics to hopefully get rid of it... the side effects of antibiotics like to get me as well so I regrettably got one of the things that I do not dare speak it's name out loud because it makes it worse. And the monthly visitor will be showing up in the next couple of days. Ya go me! Chris got it a little bit too and the cough is the lingering issue.

I'm hoping within the next couple of days it will be mostly gone because we are preparing for our own trip up to Nor Cal next weekend! Yay!

Our itinerary so far....
Thursday = Finish work and school for Chris and hit the road and stay at my Dad's place 

Friday = Wonderful Lake Tahoe
Super excited about this.... showing Chris some snow and I feel like it's been forever since I've been there and I used to go a lot :( and then possibly meeting up with a friend of ours that just moved to Auburn when we get back into town then either staying at my mom's or dad's depending where our night leaves us 

Saturday = Grass Valley Day
Going to the river (Hiking possibly?? Depending on the weather) Going to eat Thai food and something else cool... showing Chris some other cool GV things and then probably going out that night

Sunday= Dad's day
My dad and judy will be back from Minnesota for Miranda's skating competition on Saturday and so we'll get to spend Sunday with them. Probably just a lot of visiting and football watching. Chris wanted to maybe go ice skating and believes he'll be able to do a sow cow by the time he's done there, ha.

Monday = Sacramento Day
We'll be meeting up with my friends Mike and Shann and wandering around Old Sac and seeing the capital and what not then we'll be hitting the road and driving back home

Bad/Good news side note. Cyndi... Chris' sister is expected to have her baby the weekend we are in Nor Cal! So if that ends up happening our vaycay will be cut short.... but for a good cause :)

All around sounds like a good time. Other than Ash and Les visiting it wasn't too eventful actually. I'm more excited for Feb I think.

OH! I applied for Trainer at Autopia and my interview is on Monday :) ! Star Tours 2 meeting is coming up on the 1st and I'm super excited for that as well..... and speaking of work... time to get ready!

As happened many times in the blogging world I am taking an idea from Ashley and going to make a 2010 post including pictures.... I'm hoping it won't be too difficult...

I rang in the new year in front of sleeping beauty's castle doing crowd control. It was basically miserable.... there were so many people in the park! I couldn't imagine who would want to try and fight the crowds and be in there but 60k + do every year.Ugh

sea of peoples....

Sadly we didn't get too far into the year and we lost Grandma Barbara. She had been fighting Thyroid Cancer. Her service was set for the next month so I was looking into ways of getting up north.

I got a second job! I needed it so badly! It didn't last long but it did come back to me later in the year.

Also there was a lot of rain...and flooding at my apartment which was awesome to try and walk through when I was trying to get to work.

I finally starting hanging out with people outside of work and it was nice to start making some friends :)


The Main Street Electrical Parade was sent to Florida :( and I was sad about that.


I was able to go up to Nor Cal for the memorial service but it was just a quick weekend up and just spent time with family and then flew back here

Autopia had a bowling night so there was more opportunities to hang out with people, it was a super fun night.

Cassy and Garrick came down to visit me before they moved to Connecticut so that was a fun weekend as well.

 Game nights a plenty and I had finally found a place to live.... and I was so excited to be able to start living!

Earned my 'ears' at disney and was finally off probation.

Awesome Christmas presents which I went into detail about already....the Peter pan 360 show, Adam Carolla's book and seeing him at the Irvine Improv and getting to meet him and him signing my book but I did spend Christmas with Chris' family and it was a really fun time. Even opened presents at midnight. Which was a first...Chris also got me a space heater for my room which works awesomely and a sweet star wars calendar that when you're done you can keep the pictures and they are all the movie posters! i love it :)

This year has definitely had it's ups.... and certainly it's downs. I can't forget about my Burnadette being taken away because I couldn't pay for her anymore. Light from that tunnel is that she sold for more than I owed so I got a nice check from that.

Everything happens for a reason and I'm always looking forward to finding out those reasons.

Resolution.... blog more so it's not as hard to catch up on another year as it took me tonight! ugh! i have to work at 730am!
