A Bummer of a Friday

Who could have ever thought a 4th grader could bully their own teacher. Ya it was a bummer of a day. I finished Friday totally frustrated at the fact that I had no control over the kids, and all the while feeling they were going to take with them constant memories of a mean lady always telling them to be quiet and pay attention. I walk a fine line where I am trying to be a good teacher/role model but also be liked. I'm terribly afraid I won't be liked. I was just flat out a rough day, and I'm glad it's over.
I don't know why it matters whether I'm liked or not. It should matter most that I provide constant guidance and respectful teaching. I guess that will be my new focus for the future. I just had all I could take on Friday, so I can now look back and say you can only go up from here. I was struck even harder when my husband told me I was bossy.. I could have sank through the floorboards of the car :( It's my past come back to haunt me, being told I am a bossy person. Hope I can work on that one.

A new respect

Since by now if you ever attempted to keep up with reading my crazy rants, if you catch this one quickly you either have too much time on your hands, or are obsessed with me. Just kidding, all I can say is if you haven't given up hope and thinking I have fallen off the face of the planet you are a good person, one who definitely perseveres. Neway a lot has changed over the past couple of months. I have since moved back home to Memphis, TN! David and I gave up hope on our adventure of building a house and have since purchased and moved/tried to settle into a preexisting home. Pretty darn cool. It's a gorgeous,brand new 2 story house, as you can see from the pictures I posted on dot mac. Never would have been able to fathom the burden of cleaning a place this big. But I'm working on it... Even having a tiny zero lot line yard is a task to reckon with.
Needless to say, this summer I took a job with Williams-Sonoma which I loved but as the summer wound down I went after the job I have always wanted to have. I took a job as a 4th grade teacher's assistant and the IT assistant to my mother-in-law at the local Catholic Church. ( can't get much better than having your job be 5 min away) So my first, real full-time job. Way to go me, especially since it's about time, after having waited a year to get anything accomplished!
And now I approach the topic of my article heading. I have a new found respect for the world teachers embrace. I really don't know how they do it. Gathering a group of rowdy, loud and headstrong children. I associate their role to one of a mother duck getting her chicks in line. Nurturing them, wearing a smile everyday (more often because cute kids just do it to you) giving them confidence, pushing them toward a common goal of independence and self-reliance. Dealing not only with each individual child's problem, but also dealing with their parents as well. I have stepped into a position of role model, because with everything I do I have 23 pairs of eyes watching my every move. You are there to set the standard. The scariest part of it all, I remember more of my 4th grade year more than any other year in elementary school. That really freaks me out, especially since maybe one day these students will look back at their 4th grade year and remember me! Very scary. I even have to be conscious of how I look in public. Since you wouldn't want to be caught by one of your kids while you are out to the movies, looking like a hoochie. (not like I'm out wearing belly shirts and daisy dukes) This position for me is a step into a new realm of adulthood. Eh, maybe this is one step closer to learning how to be a parent. Who really knows. I had to laugh at myself, for after only 2 days of work I was telling David "I want ONE!" Never thought you'd hear that from me, ever, did ya. Believe me it was a change for me too. They are just so darn cute. The little things that excite them (Simon says, The prize box, and bringing a drink as a special treat on Friday) never thought something so simple could mean so much. You really forget the simple joys when you get caught up in the big world.
They are so inquisitive. I get asked about everything, which car in the parking lot do I drive and why? where do I live? Why do I have my ears pierced 2x, and do I like it? That was a fun question to answer. At the beginning of school I got my ears double pierce for the fun of it. Carol (mother-in-law) was getting hers done for the first time, and I have to say piercing can be addictive (once you get past the fear of pain part) So now I have another random set of holes I have to adorn w/ something fun. It's sad, but I hope I am not looked at differently b/c I have my ears double pierced. (Since David says those people are hoochies. Guess I'm one now too!) I figure it's just a random desire and I'll let them grow out later when I get sick of not being able to look dressy when I have 2 sets of holes to deal with. (maybe that's just a random misconception I have about it). Well as I've now written a small novel I will quit for a bit and add more of my ventures later. Adios.

To own or not to own...

Ever think you wanted to own a house? Well, I've always wanted one too, but don't think your not stepping into adopting a brand new baby (I'm not kidding). You've got to feed it, clothe it and wash it too, first hair cuts, new accessories to make it happy just to name a few.
I don't know how people do it (especially move into an older house!) Geeze. Mortgages, escrow, closing and surveys, sinks that fall, roofs that leak, fences to mend, and lawns to mow (or not in our case, kick the lawn mower b/c we couldn't fix the lawn mower) blinds for 20 eyes ( who ever had a baby w/ 20 eyes!!! geeze, could you imagine the eye dr. bill!!, maybe that whole baby analogy is a bad comparison... or maybe not) Refrigerators, and grills, and propane Oh MY... It's been a true blessing though. I love this stuff! Oh, and boxes and more boxes, where's the silverware O my!
So I spent the first week, well, surrounded by boxes. Began w/ the bedroom, after all I'd have to go there at least once a day and actually have to wade through it too. So I began w/ the closets, his first, mine next. Too much room. Not really. I love it. Next the kitchen, well until the sink fell (long story, something about granite and not attaching it right the first time) Putting up plates, and finding all the dishes was fun. Being petrified to scuff the wood floor after the final seal, I never thought I'd get over my anal retentiveness to having guests w/ shoes... now after tonight I just have to convince myself that it's going to get dirty (after having vacuumed and wet mopped to get up the grass. dirt, dust and junk brought it) I have to say it looks mighty fine though.
By the way, how come no one tells you bubble baths in a jetted tub are a pain to deal w/. Oops, too many bubbles.. and the jets, well they were on too high and I ended up soaking the entire master bathroom including myself (fully clothed) w/ water b/c the jets were aimed up as well.. Darn em' all. It stunk. I had to laugh at myself though.
I think we never could have found a better builder, he's been a dream to work w/ even after the house is done and sold he keeps coming back on a dime to fix whatever ails the house.
Well at least I now have my own street address! and a yard to go with it too. Fun stuff. Weeding isn't too bad. Mowing w/ our situation will be interesting. Whoever built the gate didn't smell the folgers before that morning of nonsense. Ever heard of 2 gates to help a person out on a zero lot line to get the dang blasted mower to the front of the house?? Eh everyone else (on either side of our house and all down the street, they've heard of it!) guess that will be the next ann. prez. And for my birthday money (gift card to lowes) I bought a step ladder, dust mop, outdoor trash cans, shower curtain rods, and a butt load of lights, how fun is that??? not. I had a blast the 2 days, no probably 3 full days worth of playing in Lowes. I love that place, just bummed I never got to use the gift card for paint like I had planned. (not like I can even see the end of unpacking to get to the walls to paint at the moment!)
Outside the home, I've continued to work at Williams-Sonoma trying to restrain myself from buying the entire store ( I have someone watching out for me :) if I can't sit on it, I'm not buying it, [she keeps me in line] since we need furniture) Besa is doing well, well that's a lie. She's moping like a baby, missing her sister after the 2 months of continuous play. I'm no the verge of getting another job. I'll reveal when it's official. Hmm.. and finally I'm continuing my poor playing streak w/ the Germantown Country Club's ladies nine hole league. ( but having a darn good time doing it )

You just have to laugh.

I think it's just a vicious cycle. That's how things go. I've lived my entire life watching the people I know grow up and move away. Then I was the first of my friends (with the exception of one) to get married and move away. After 9 months of missing the one place everyone always tries to leave (Memphis), I'm back home and watching my closest friends take their step and move on. Tonight was the icing on the cake, and reality slapped me in the face. Stephanie, my best friend and only person I met while I was at the U of M, is moving on. Now I knew darn well when moving back I couldn't depend on these people always being here, but geeze, I must have the worst possible luck. Melissa my best friend since 1st grade topped off the evening with telling me she's interviewing in Nashville tomorrow. Wow... knew that was coming, but not that quick though and I was still hanging on to the hope that someone still liked it here. I can't trick myself into believing they will ever want to come back either. I know what it's like for me and they are both very different, searching for adventure. I have to laugh because I'm back in old home town and making new friends, something that seems ironic since I'm not a new person in a new town. [however I'd be close minded to think there wouldn't be new people out there to meet, Memphis isn't that small!!]. It's just been a bummer of a night. However, in the midst of the disappointment, new situations have popped up that have confirmed the fact that the move back was meant to happen. I continue to have the best of all situations, things are going very well otherwise. In 2 months we made the move we were planning on for the future (in about 2-5 years) I mean our house downtown, with hopes of moving to G'town. Well we are almost, well basically officially there. Hopefully we'll be moved in by the end of the month, worst case it will be the first week of July. Not bad at all. Well that's it, I am just thankful for the new friends I am making, and I truly hope I'll continue to make many more!

Daily junk.

Laura's club (golf) of the day. [actually of wed and thurs]
Wednesday: 7 iron played basically the whole first round of 9 holes with the 7. Of course using the sand/pitching/putter
when necessary. Did pretty awful too. 62 but didn't do as poorly as I did that afternoon or on Thursday.
Thursday: the 7 iron ( the letter L for "Laura's club" abandoned me along with my putter) so being the fickle person I am,
the favorite for the day would have to be the 8 iron. Really wanted to piss the 7 iron off by going up just one
club. Maybe the Laura iron will be out of its grumpy, worm-burning state today.
Friday: yet to be determined, will know by the end of the day "couples match" maybe we'll lose :) just kidding I know we
will. We both NEED to seriously work on the "Mad skills"

So news for the week. We did end up getting out of our downtown contract to build a house on Mud Island. Bummer, but nice while it lasted, and our new love is hopefully to become our new home. (hopefully we'll be closing before the end of the month!!!) How awesome is that ;) I've obviously been playing golf (my only pastime for the last week.) Got my wisdom teeth out. Guess any bit of smarts I had left I just lost... I know, bad joke. Had another birthday to round it up a year. (feeling old) and to top off the week I applied for one job (with no call back, HUGE BUMMER!) but put in an application at another and was hired on the spot. It was hilarious, but sadly I will likely need to look for something else too. (the job doesn't guarantee any hrs. 0-20 maybe) soo.. big bummer for the need to make at least some money, but nice b/c it is back in the same shopping center I been in for 4 years :) LOL. It also helps that I knew the person who hired me, girl from church and the University of Memphis. I will hopefully be on the schedule for the following week! (BTW I am going to be working for Williams-Sonoma, need to brush up on the culinary knowledge and skills) pretty sweet. I'm holding out for a possible teaching job at the local church. (hoping to help with their IT stuff and maybe be a teacher's assistant) Who knows, but at least I can finally say I'm employed again :) mucho happy about that. Have a great weekend.

They are out!

Well I stick my tongue out to all who tried to scare me about wisdom teeth. That was a piece o' cake! Weirdest feeling in the world to be on Nitrousoxide. Freaky. Felt like the tubes were going to crush me, and I thought I was going to feel the whole surgery. Man was I wrong! lol.
Supposedly I woke up and said "so when are we going to start" and I repeated myself.. a lot. So I meticulously spent the day switching sides with the ice = no swelling. SWEET!!! Ate a medium frosty from Wendy's over the course of that day. The only freaky part of the whole thing, I felt FINE, like nothing had happened, and almost fainted from losing some blood and from a twinge of pain. Today I helped dry and nail clip 2 dogs. Vacuumed the living room after the flying fuzzballs, and played 9 holes of golf at Germantown for the first time. Pretty Damn good for the day after surgery. I'm darn proud of myself. Tomorrow looks like a busy day too :) pilates around 6 am, golf maybe 9 or 18 (haven't decided), the FedEx St. Jude classic for the final day, hmmm.. more anxious waiting for the response from the down town house (waiting for them to say what the heck will happen with the contract) and pray to gosh that the new find will not be bought before tues so we can have it! wouldn't that be the coolest birthday present!!

Greedy.. No??

The weeks are winding down. Boring, but it's been a bunch of fun to go out with old friends! Must take it in before they off and move away too. David and I now belong to Germantown Country Club,we've decided our golfing habit is going to be more of a continuous thing, we decided to go ahead and shoot for it. Good exercise, chance to meet some people and a beautiful place to go. We just need to get out and use it before the temperature hits 110 degrees. Oh how I love Memphis Summers, and allergies! YUCK! ack hack, sneeze, sneeze.
I am now totally motivated to get my butt up and going on the job hunt :) needless to say, the faith in our "downtown" house being finished, well at the moment hopefully it will be freakin started this year, ((totally blowing that out of proportion)but, that may not matter any more). I began looking in the Germantown area (where we have grown up and learned to love as well). Didn't take long for David and I to fall in love with something. Oops. It took, less than 15 min. Oops again. Never would have expected that. Sometimes things work out better in the long run and all I can say is hopefully this will work in our favor. ((I am crossing my fingers, and arms and toes)) We are totally in love with this one. Just have to justify that we can afford it, and also that we'll stay in it for A LOT longer time. [don't think that will be a problem]

It has been a wonderful week back in our humble town of Memphis. I could have gagged, no that's not right, I about choked, no I DID choke when I heard the TV commercial for an "Elvis" mini-series/movie on tonight. Sad thing is, the darn thing was being shown throughout the nation. Guess I'm bitter because I had to watch those stories so many times when I was a kid. I about died laughing when I went to visit the parents tonight. I knew for darn sure they would be watching the stupid show, and to top it of I even knew they'd be recording it too. Its pitiful. It is hilarious how we would leave the city and Elvis would follow us like a bad horror movie ghost ("Scream" comes to mind :) ) Maybe it has something to do with my parents curse?? (Mom born on his birthday and Dad on his death day?) eh not a curse, just a weird coincidence.
Neway, tonight is a bit of an adjustment. It's like I'm back to the days before I was married. My first night sleeping alone in almost a year. I am thanking God for our little pup. I don't know what I'd do without her. She will be my savior when we move into our new house. Being alone is going to be an adjustment. Besa is funny, she always checks for him when we come home separately. I fear this week is going to be a rude awakening for her. She'll likely drive me nutz wondering where he is. Bummer.. but they are VERY attached to each other. Cute though. She's chosen to leave the side of the bed open, just in case he decides to come home tonight. Love you Bear.

Bummers for the week. David won't be home till Friday, I am getting so much closer to having my wisdom teeth out (consultation on Tues) and I didn't get to go out with Charity tonight.. bummer! But I know something good will come out of the week.

Sunday, May 01, 2005


I can't begin to describe the wonderful feeling of being back at home. Being surround by old friends and seeing their genuine excitement to have you back makes being here so much sweeter. It's been fun again, going out around town wondering if you will bump into someone you know. It has also yet to sink in that we are here for good right now. I've felt like this entire time I need to rush, rush, rush because this is another short weekend that we have to take in for the moment before we go back. This time I do finally realize I can't say, "ok we're ready to back 'home' " because normally after the 3 days we are ready to be back on our own turf and independent again.
All in all, it is truly wonderful. I am yearning to find something to make me feel useful. I'm anxious and nervous about feeling out of place since David leaves to start the official travel part of his job next week. I really don't know what I'm going to do with myself. I'm a scardy cat about looking for a job because I always talk myself out of stuff since I think I'm not smart enough to do it or that I just won't be able to hack it. (being yelled at if a manager, destroying someone's computer if I kept working at Apple and aspired to do more) I really need to take a lesson at SUCKING it UP, and just step forward to try. Sigh. Things will start to fall into place, but being jumbled at the moment is an uneasy feeling. I just don't even know how to begin since I've never really recognized what drives my happiness. I feel so superficial too often :( it's a downer. What would truly make me happy in life? What do you think, and what do you know that I don't? I have an incredible husband, who has given me the opportunity to do whatever I would like to do, and I'm stumped. I've run down a lot of possibilities, but I'm always thinking what am I missing. Go figure.

Another day

Not much going on here since I last posted. Things are now getting down to the wire, and I dread every day I sit in our guest room and force myself to get rid of more stuff. I'm scared to death that I'll end up not having things organized to a "T" and we won't have the stuff we'll want for the 4 months we are without our junk.
It's going to be a whirlwind week. I've sold our beautiful whale of a TV. I admit I'm going to miss it a lot.. Hey wasn't that TV one of the reasons we decided to ditch the fireplace at our new house.. Oh well. We are shipping a car and then will be without our stuff for the rest of that day that the movers pack us up. It's going to be really freaking annoying night. No cable or internet. We are going to lose our minds. At that point we'll have the dog, an air mattress, some clothes, and our computer. Oh what fun. Eh, I said we go to bed around 6 and if we wake up at 3 in the morning.. Let's get going on the road. I know I'm nutz. I just realize it's going to be a "fun" night.
I am already getting nostalgic about the place, calling it "home" n stuff. Something that I never really did. I think I'm annoying the piss out of David for it too. I am anxious about just getting this damn drive out of the way. I dread it with a passion due to the nice accident we had on our first try going up here. (I'm mainly scared to death of the rain) I teased Besa today by asking her about going to see her "seester" [sister]. She knows something is up since I got her crate down and have been messing the house up royally.
I am now realizing how much I am going to miss the people and friends I have made up here. I'll just be spending all my time referring to "well in VA..." I know that's going to get old for some people. Ah, too bad.
The weather has been a pain lately, it's kept us from going to golf, and needless to say, David's been going nutz. I am ROTFLMAO about how I spent Friday arranging tubs in the BMW to know what goes where and what we have room for in the car on our trip down. Needless to say, that was thrown to the wind. After having a knock down drag out fight about having to cart our "electronics" with us in the car/having all the electronics dropped off to avoid having them being ruined from sitting in storage. The golf clubs are now NOT going on the truck and have become a priority item to have with us on the trip down. There goes the entire trunk! It's hilarious. But it will be nice when we finally get to Memphis. That first week will be like the spring break we didn't get last year. David will be able to stay and work from home for the first week, giving us time to settle in. Sigh, I can't imagine how these 4 months are going to go.. It's going to be REALLY interesting. My other agenda is to get my wisdom teeth out asap.. I WAIT WITH EXTREME EXCITEMENT! not. I'm scared to death like a little baby. I can't wait to have my own horror story! I know, stop with the pessimistic thoughts. On with a new day, and hopes for a better tomorrow.

Saturday, April 16, 2005


It's been just what the title suggests. Boring.. But eh that's ok. I had a fun Friday. Got my computer back from the shop.. nice! Glad to have er back. Went shopping, which is always fun, but I always end up feeling bad for spending money. Went to visit my favorite Cost Plus World Market store where I picked up the last of the really awesome modern looking hanging picture frame. :( bummer they didn't have more than that one. That place is the bombdiggity. I know.. I'm as far away from ghetto as it gets.
And I took my 1st, no 2nd step into a Tiffany's store. GOD those people have a rod stuck up their butt. I can't figure it out. I stood at a counter, 5 sales people were needless to say doing jack $h*t and not a person helped me for a good 5 minutes. Talk about what the heck. I decided to get my ring cleaned, which was the only redeeming part of the visit. (at least the people there are civilized) Maybe I'm just phobic of stuck-up, rich people. Something about that holier than thou attitude that is a complete turn off. I can only imagine what the guy's jaw did when David went in to get my ring in CA. "I want that one" then handing it price tag first to David. What a prick. Decision made, thank God for online catalogues! Ok.. I'll back off the rampage now.
And the countdown has begun till the move. Only 12 days left. Wow. I've been in VA for.. almost 10 months. Never would have thought I could do it. It was TOTALLY worth it. Scary beyond belief being away from everything I've ever known, but it's been a bonding/learning/growing up experience. Don't get me wrong, I have so much growing up to do. It's been a blessing to have had this time away with David. I think we are closer now than we have been in a really long time. It's going to be a bummer we are going to be pretty much back to that whole experience of being apart like we were before the wedding. But we've done it once, we can do it again. Needless to say, I'm getting scared that I am going to freak out when I am alone at home when our new house is built. It was bad enough when I house sat with for my parents. I was always afraid to come home alone. Hmmm don't like to think about that one... but at least we will have friends a street away. Guess I'm going to have to carry some mace, teach Besa to be an attack guard dog, and learn K-rA-TAE! Hieeee YA. I know you can see it now! WhAtever.

I've decided that I should be the official mascot for the release of the new "Tiger" operating system. I know you think I am a retarded monkey and I'm obviously kidding... to a point. Needless to say I had a little fun (point number one: don't ever be without set things to do when you are without work) (point #2: don't be without work :) So.. I decided to dye my hair.

Now after having prior experience with having my hair dyed you'd think I'd be a little more prepared for the outcome. Well I was, kinda. [I know what wonderful English ;)] So I did one of these little 2 step kit thingys, and I'm orange and skunked. Brunettes, and I'll clarify that with dark brunettes, should just flat out beware. I only tried to go to a lighter brown with highlights.. complete crappy experience. I tried to test it on a piece of my hair, but of course that gave me basically no results that I could judge from. So, balls to the wall and sucked it up. (the balls to the wall thing was easy b/c I obviously don't have 'em ) Eh, its not so bad to be a UT fan!! What the hell am I saying..Quick! Where's the blue dye??!! And after a week or so I know it will fade, it just happens to look like someone grabbed some chuncks of my hair and bleached them golden. It's only been a day so I'll give it some more time... ok times up... just kidding.

At your request

Due to the multiple gripes.. *just kidding* I have gotten in regards to keeping this up to date, I've taken it upon myself to put up a brief (hopefully) post. < not so brief after all. oops.
Needless to say as most of you know, I have quite a bit more time on my hands for the moment. My time right now has been spent dedicating myself to getting everything lined up to move, YEAH, not. But it has been a learning experience nonetheless. I am, however, dissapointed in the abundance of tall tale tellers out there. To put it bluntly.. I'm ticked so many people feel so comfortable lying. Trying to get a straight answer from anyone is virtually impossible no matter what you do and now my blind trust is beginning to fade, which maybe a good thing, but its also put me in a position to be very gunshy about trusting anyone. [must be that I've been in a box so long, I've never realized what's out there].

Beyond the moving part (well not while my computer is away) I'm working on creating a new .Mac [html] site from scratch. It's coming along, but very slowly. So hopefully I will get a bit further in the passing weeks. I'm also waiting to install final cut express and very anxious to sink my teeth into some video again. My friend Steph from home has some projects she needs a boost and push on, and I am eager and willing to provide the support.

-RANDOM COMMENT- Today I got a pick-me-up hearing Better than Ezra on the radio. (What the heck) That's a rare occurance, and a strange one at that. It seems they may be releasing "A Lifetime" on their new album as a single. Radio jockey said this "new" song is coming out soon on their new album. Anyone who knows the band knows the damn song has been out for a LONG time. Guess BTE decided to take advantage of one of the "most requested songs" from their concent tours. Neway the song perked me up and got me into an I-going-home state of mind. Good place to be. _End of Randomness

So back to my progress. at the moment I'm going to fool with trying to set up a live streaming webcast. Something I know SQUAT about. SO it's going to be a fumbling experience. Interest lies with having a "nannycam" for the dog. It's also a possibility that I will be attempting to lend services to the people in the new subdivision (petsitter) and I think it might be fun to offer them a chance to see their 4legged friends while on vacation. Nothing like psycho-attached dog lovers :) takes one to know one. And if you are looking for anything other than dog streams, you may as well just give up now.

All-in-all the day was great. Got a chance to get spruced up and look a little more presentable, which these past 4 days has been a plesant change from my staple outfits of jeans and a black t-shirt. I just got too comfortable being sloppy.

Tuesday, February 01, 2005


I know its been a while... But I never really thought people would actually read these. Guess I better be careful what I say. I've been pretty bummed out lately. My skills from college are quickly waining and I don't have any real idea what to do with my life. Talk about typical. My day's off from work have consisted of doing house work... YUCK, but its better than sitting on the couch... Surfing monster looking for opportunities, oh ya and the whole thing about finding a place to move. Biggest bummer is moving. In less than 3 months we are going to have to get the heck outta our apartment turned condo. I have no idea where we are going to end up, I have looked all over VA trying to figure out where might be the best place to go. I'd love to own but I don't know if we'd really have the funds for it. (doesn't help that I am really picky and of course want it all, 3 rooms, garage, fenced yard, 2 bathrooms) I am just going to have to get my head out of the clouds. Fortunately I am glad to say I am trying to get more realistic. It is jut really overwhelming trying to figure out things on my own, since I have no experience with our finances and what we can practically do. David has been swamped with work and would rather not get into it right now. I'm practically laughing at the thought of how the hell I am going to get all our crap moved out of here. What am I going to do .. rent a uhal and move the damn things by myself. Eh who knows.. it'll happen soon enough. So what's up in your neck of the woods? Shout out to I am a craigslist junkie. I admit. Everyday I check it for rentals/realestate/movie acting... all that fun stuff.
