So yesterday wasn't too bad. I'm feeling better. Thank goodness. We took baby's niece to Chucke Cheese. That place was a mad house!! I use to love that place when I was a kid. Now I realize what hell I must of put my mom in going to places like this. Yikes. But it is fun seeing how excited they get. She talked about it the whole way there and was bursting at the seams with joy as we stood in line. I can't remember last time I was that happy over something so simple. I miss being a kid sometimes:)
Of course she had a blast and ended up with a princess tiara that broke an hour later. His niece is so adorable. She is going to be a heartbreaker when she gets older. I am going to miss her when she leaves. I'm still missing his nephew. It was easy when he went back to New Jersey. I didn't know he was leaving and I didn't see him leave. But when he left a couple of weeks ago, I broke down and just cried. Which really surprised me. It was embarrassing because I wasn't expecting it to happen and it happened in front of his family. Most of which I had just met the day before. What a great way to make an impression.
We are going to be going to party later tonight. It should be fun. It's a house warming party for a girl I go to school with. Her and her husband are getting divorced and it's been pretty ugly. So she is ready to celebrate her new found freedom. I hope I never have to go through divorce. Breaking up sucks but when people get divorced it is just down right vicious sometimes. So sad to think that someone you were going to spend the rest of your life with turns out making your life hell. Makes me grateful everyday that I didn't marry my ex.

I usually don't post search results because I hardly ever get any but I have a couple this week!!

1. Hessie, I've said it before and I'll say it again, it just sucks ass

2. Can you get sick from to many mosquito bites. Not that I'm aware of and I get bit a lot. They were some scary mosquitoes up in Alaska and Canada. SCARY. And Millions. I thought the south was bad but no they are far worse in Alaska.

3. Muslim

4. Islam

5. Taiwan Facial Tumor, WTF is this?? This just scares me.


Ok, so I feel like utter crap. Not only physically but mentally. I'm just in one of those moods. I hate hormones sometimes. I wasn't going to go out last night but baby but the guilt trip on. Well, he didn't but I felt bad so I went. Of course it wasn't bad and I did have a little bit of fun. I think it would have been better if big drunk men would understand that the whole dance floor is not theirs alone. And uh,um yeah a maybe get a little rhythm while you are at it. It was a bit weird being at a club and not drinking. But it was amusing. I really didn't care for the dj to much. It was like once he got the crowd going he would play something slow and then he would cut the songs at weird places. But it wasn't to bad of a time.
Hopefully I can rescue the rest of my day.......

I'm L-A-M-E

Is it wrong for me to want to spend the evening cleaning out the closet in my computer room then go out? Yeah, I thought so. I so do not want to go out!!! I was glad when baby came by for lunch and decided that he indeed did not want to go. But I got a call just now saying that he wants to go out. GRRR. Wouldn't be so bad but it will be at the Hard Rock Casino. I HATE this place. Of course he tells me that I will enjoy it much more because I won't be drinking. Um, no I won't. And I have been sober almost every single time I have gone. Except once, and I actually had fun but the place was also dead. The parking is horrible and I don't even want to get into the people. And it is way to crowded. I won't even be able to dance because there is no breathing room. woo-hoo. Bring on the fun. I'm afraid that I'm turning into a hermit.


Well, things are moving along pretty well here. Except I have been a tad bit cranky. I have no clue to why but it's getting annoying. I really need to get in and have my yearly check up which I hate doing. I truly hate going to the doctor. Ick. But on a positive side it has been 6 years now of being cancer free!! Woohoo!!!

I'm suppose to go out with baby and one of his friends that is up from Trinidad. We'll see how that goes. I thought my house warming party was tonight but apparently I don't read calendars well. It is Sunday. Opps. Good thing I checked. How embarrassing would it be to show up two days early?

Some disturbing things. I found a note informing the residents of my apartment building about some recent break ins. Apparently they are happening in the day and these people are just breaking down the doors. In broad daylight. How freaking lovely. And I found some teenage boys (me thinks they were teenagers, could be wrong here) smoking pot downstairs. How lovely. My once beautiful place is turning into crap over night!

Well, I'm going to finally get my office finished to day (yeah, right), finally catch up on everyone's blogs, and maybe just maybe start my summer reading(hahaha). Oh, yeah and sign up for classes. I guess I was um, suppose to do that 10 days ago. See what happens when I loose my Palm. Utter chaos!!!!!!!! And my phone charger seems to be hiding with my palm and my phone died. boohoo.

Happy Wednesday!

Well, not much going on here. Just still trying to get my apartment organized and cleaned. I have everything done except my office and spare bathroom, aka the kitties bathroom. I had to buy a new vacuum cleaner. Something that I really didn't want to get because money is tight. But with cats it is a necessity. My other one just gave out so I just went a bought a cheap one for $50. I must say for a cheap one it is very nice. And it is lightweight and super easy to use. Bonus!! I'm trying to get a lot of stuff done before school starts and I it feels a bit overwhelming. Hopefully I will get most of it done.

I can't believe my break is almost over. Boo-hoo. It feels like it just flew by. I can't believe this will be my last free summer ever. This time next year I will be working as a nurse, Inshallah!!

I wish I could go see my sis. I am missing her a lot lately. I wish that I had the money to fly out and see her. But of course that won't be happening anytime soon. I still haven't seen my nephew and I'm so sad about that.

They are building a mosque in Pompano Beach and of course some people are protesting. It breaks my heart when people say how bad Islam is. A few pastors said that Islam was nothing but a cult and how we must kill people from other faiths to enter Heaven. Just heartbreaking.

Anyways, I really need to get my bum down to David's Bridal and see about my bridesmaid dress. I am going to be a bridesmaid in my friends wedding. I am really happy for her because she really deserves this. I also have to decide what to bring Friday to a house warming party that I'm going to. I will be so glad to see my friends. I have been super bad about keeping in touch. I really need to work on that.:(

Well, that's what I have been up to. Really boring, eh?

The grass is always greener...

As strange as it sounds, I miss Alaska. I couldn’t wait to get home. During the drive I hated life. I was having lots of fun and seeing cool things but with the cramped quarters and my mom’s cat it made things really tough sometimes. Not to mention the COLD. Well, cold for me. It was nice during the days once we hit British Columbia but the nights and early morning were still freezing! Now I wish that I could go back and do the things that I missed and take an RV and really take my time. I miss the mountains, the wildflowers, and the wild animals that I would spot. My mom gave me the name “eagle eye” because I could spot an animal like there was no tomorrow. Joking that I would either make a great hunter back in the day or a really good Labrador. Hahaha.
I think this was a great experience though. I think I have gotten to safe in life and afraid
to try new things. I surprised myself as I hiked up Flattop Mountain in Anchorage. I wanted to go but only part way. I’m a wee bit afraid of heights and as I saw how steep and high the top was I told mom, “Only part of the way, Ok?”. But I found myself just doing it. I mean there was a moment of whatthehelldidIgetmyselfinto. But I did it without injury, without crying or being a baby! Of course it really wasn’t that big of a climb to others but to me it was.
I am truly amazed at what some people do to live there. I mean really it isn’t an easy life if you ask me. Even if you live in the city. Things are more expensive and one doesn’t have the choices that the lower 48 does. And I can’t even imagine living outside the cities. The work that it would take to make it through the winter would drive me crazy.
Well, I will have awesome memories and hopefully I will soon return. I just found out that my friend’s fiancé’s mom has a cabin in Alaska! It would be so cool if they bought it!!!!
I hope that my pictures turn out. I have 27 rolls of film. Seriously. I will have like three freaking scrapbooks of Alaska. Yes, I was a tad bit picture happy and I will probably have way to many photos of moose. And bears. I saw 4 bears on the drive back home in British Columbia!!! But everything was so beautiful I just couldn’t help myself.

On another topic I have wedding fever. Yes, I hate to admit this but I do. *Sigh* I never thought I would be one of those women. You know what I’m talking about. I use to say I wanted nothing big, blah, blah, blah. Well, I guess that changes when you realize that you have your other half. It doesn’t help that everyone around me is getting married. Well, at least it isn’t baby fever.

Back to Reality...

I have been back for a week now and it's time to get back to reality. I have had a nice little vacation and have so much I want to write about. Problem is I don't know were to start!!! I think I will wait until I get my photos developed and then just start from there. It was a really long but fun drive. I got to see some really great stuff!! We drove down the Alaska highway, brutal if you ask me! Much better if you are in an RV, I think. We drove through Montana, through Wyoming to see the Devil's Tower. Then through South Dakota (a state I didn't think we were ever going to get out of) to see Mt. Rushmore. We took a nice little detour through Badlands scenic byway. We almost didn't take it but it was well worth it! It was gorgeous!
Mom was suppose to do an assignment in Memphis but the paperwork for her license wasn't finished so she decided to come back to Florida. Luckily we only lost $50 on my plane ticket. Mom dropped me off in Orlando so I could meet baby and his family.
Orlando had it's ups and downs. A little bit more downs than ups. But I guess that's what happens on a family vacation.
Mom left for Orlando Friday. I miss her already!! She left me with her cat for a month. That has not been going well at all. Her cat HATES my cat. It has been interesting to say the least.
I can't wait to catch up on everyone's blogs!! I feel so out of touch with everyone. I have so many people to call and so many things to do. I feel like I'm never going to get done. I'm in the process of cleaning my apartment right now. Ugh. Luckily my mom did all my laundry before she left!
