Tough Day.

Today was a tough day. Jeremy is having a tough time with working so much... not eating or sleeping regularly. Poor guy. He's feeling much better after a nice long talk (and a good cry) and LOTS of hugging and cuddling. :-) And he lost his wedding ring at work. That made him really sad. It's okay. I'll get him a new one tomorrow... :-)

Grandpa Stark.

We went and visited Jeremy's grandpa today. It was so nice to see him, and it was SUCH a nice day. We sat outside in the sun, played with Blackie, and ate A LOT of turkey and brisket. Grandpa cried when we left, and that made me tear up. He's so lonely without Winnie-Lou. It breaks my heart. I hope we can go back to visit soon. :-)

After visiting Grandpa, we had dinner with our new friends from church, Stephanie and Brian. Their dogs are SO cute. We had a fun time. :-)

Everyone Else is Doing It...

Saw Avatar tonight. Awesome graphics. Pretty cool effects. And I like the conservation message. :-) I didn't think I'd like 3D movies, but I got used to it, and it was pretty cool feeling so immersed. :-)

Reading Too Many.

I am not good with reading books. I'm reading The Secret Life of Bees, Breaking Dawn, and Forgive to Live, and I'd really like to, at least, finish one of them! LOL.

Jeremy worked. I created.

Poor Jeremy! He's worked 49 hours in three days - with barely 15 hours sleep! EEK! I appreciate him so much, but I'm worried about him.

I made an inspiration piece today for my scrap room. Fun!

Snow! And Mom. :)

It snowed! EEEEEE! Awesomeness! We were at the hotel, and what a surprise when I opened the door this morning! WOW!

Mom had a hard day today. I'm glad I could be here for her to vent. I love that we have such a close relationship, and she can call me whenever she wants. :-) I wish she lived closer though...

Be You.

Feeling SO much better! I'm inspired to find the Reyanna that has gotten lost in pleasing others. Ack.

Ack. Feeling Blech.

I'm going through some tough stuff. It's frustrating not to be able to figure stuff out right away. I'm just down. Blech.

Saturday, February 20, 2010


I think too much. I analyze everything. Sometimes that can be frustrating.

Feeling Better.

I feel SO much better today! Phew. :-)

A Down Day.

There's something missing. Is it the fact that I've been sick a lot? Is it the feeling like I've lost a part of my life - all the things I used to love to do? Is it what happened last year?

I feel like I'm in a cloud. It's the headache that won't go away. The constant feeling that something is wrong - or I've lost something very important. Me? Is it me that I'm missing?

"Be you. Find you. Be happy with that."

That's hitting me lately... that sentence I saw on Lizzy K's blog. Who am I? Where am I? Where am I going? Is it the fact that I'm not doing anything I thought I would? I thought that maybe what I was missing was children, but now I feel like maybe that's not it at all - like if I had kids, it wouldn't make a difference in this area of my life.

I feel stifled, trapped. I just want to feel better. I want my health to be better. I feel like if I were feeling better, i could do the things I want to do, be the person I want and need to be. How do I get there?

Videos Are Fun!

I made a video tutorial today, and it was so fun! I can't wait to do another one!

I Heart Scrapbooking.

I need to try and scrap every day - even if only a card...

Last Day of the elfa Sale!

I worked over nine hours today, and I had so much fun! I'm really good at being elfa sales manager. I love it so much. :-)

Taking a Load Off.

Told The Container Store that I may need to take a break due to my health. I hope it works out that I can.

Ruby Loves ST! (And they love her!)

Ruby was featured on the ST blog today! How exciting! She's SO cute. :-)

The Bachelor = Good Television

Jeremy and I have been watching The Bachelor (Jake, the pilot) all season on It's really fun. We're both totally into it, and waiting six days between episodes is painful. LOL. We're such dorks. :-p

Sometimes Eating is Not So Cool.

I'm starting to realize that *eating* is what's making me sick. Too bad I just can't cut that out, right?! LOL. I'm not minding a bland diet: mashed potatoes, chicken, chocolate milk, yogurt, Jell-O and GF bread. Yummy. :-) And I'm starting to feel better... :-D

LONG hours.

Jeremy didn't get home from work until 5:30 this morning. (That's a 23-hour day!) I stayed up to wait for him. Then we got to go take a nap together. He slept for 2-3 hours. I slept about 5 or 6. I'm sure we'll both sleep well tonight! LOL.

Sometimes Jeremy's Work is Yucky.

It bothers me when Jeremy works long hours... like now. He won't be home until *tomorrow* morning. Sheesh. Poor guy. He needs sleep! LOL.

Working and Sleeping.

I still wasn't feeling up to working, but I only had a 3-hour shift, so I braved it.

When I got out of work, I smelled hot dogs. Jeremy asked me what I wanted for dinner, and I said, "Grilled hot dogs." So we went to Walgreens and got hot dogs and propane, and that's just what we had. I had three of them. And that's pretty much all I ate all day. LOL.

Being Sick... Sucks.

Had to call in sick today... 3rd time in less than a month. I HATE calling in sick. I hate it. But I was too sick to stand up, and therefore, too sick to go to work. *sigh*

Kissa Kitty!

Kissa is so totally sweet. I'm so glad she adopted us. :-) She LOVES to cuddle! LOL.

Cute Puppies!

I love our puppies. They're the best. And the cutest. And the sweetest. And they're really good cuddlers. :-)

Tuesday, February 2, 2010


I've been cold for several nights in a row... couldn't understand why... as I sleep in sweats with fleece sheets, a down comforter, AND a quilt. Just noticed that the down comforter was down by my feet! Ack! Moved it back up. I'm much warmer now. :-)

Took pregnancy test... Negative. Darn.

Money. Ew.

Did our finances today. We're not in the best place, but at least I feel a bit less stressed because I KNOW where we are. :-)
