Feline-icide

I'm going to murder Pickles. She keeps peeing on anything she finds on the floor in our room. Even though there's a litter box two feet away. And one in the bathroom. Bad cat.

According to the tracking number, my knitpicks order (that I'm super crazy fun time excited about) is now at the Sortation Center. Doesn't is seem like sortation is a made up word the likes of which you hardly see?

Leftover garlic cheesey mashed potatoes warming for breakfast. Oh yeah.

We went to check out the new Sanrio/Morning Glory gift store in the plaza with the Asian market on Sunday. It's a super cool store. I got cute green and brown stationery and Choco-Cat post-it's and these cute little origami things that fold up to make adorable little three-d stars. It took us forever to figure out the folding though. We're slow sometimes. Once we figured it out though, it was addictive. I want to go back and get cranes.

Thanksgiving was cool. All the food was really good. Ben made all the leftovers into Pasties. Freak.

Work was good yesterday, but I starting to run out of things to do. When there's no one there, I'm supposed to do clerical type things, like catching up on files that need attention and such. But I must be more effecient than supposed, because I seem to be finishing all that pretty quickly. Oh well, I'll figure out something to keep me busy.

I need to do a post with pictures soon. I have a ton of finished projects to show off. And today I'm going to start on Ben's christmas present. Well, I hope to do that anyway, between scrubbing cat pee in the closet and doing lots of laundry. But that won't be too hard, and then I'll get to enjoy my day off.

You're breakin' my balls here

So, yesterday I bullied the Papa John's guy into letting us have our pizza all for free. It was supposed to be pick up, but they sent it delivery, so we had to go back home at wait for it. And it got here all cold and wrong, and then the delivery guy couldn't take our card to pay for it. So when he called his manager, I talked to him, and told him, I can send the whole order back with the guy right now, or you can just let us have it. So he let us keep it for free. And good thing, or I would have been mad about it not being very good, lol.

Work is going okay. It's really slow on the days I work, but as long as they always have other stuff for me to do, I don't think I'll mind. But if I run out of other stuff, I might have to ask them if they mind if I read. But it is cool to get paid for working out.

Ben and I got all the fixin's for Thanksgiving. I'm pretty excited about that, it's going to be fun. Last year was really cool, one of the best Thanksgivings ever, so I hope this year is as nice.

Christmas shopping is a bit of a pain this year. Most of the people that I have great ideas for presents, I don't have to get them one, and the people I do have to buy for, I mostly have no idea what they like or what to get them. Poo.

But it'll be fun to shop for Ben, I think.

So.... nothing.

My first shift by myself at work went pretty well yesterday. It was pretty slow, and I was concerned I'd get bored and it would seem endless, but it wasn't bad at all, so that was cool.

I'm going to go right after this to get my workout done, so then I'll have it out of the way. I'm not even going to shower first, I'm going all smelly, and then I'll shower off the extra work out smell, plus the original smells when I get home. Then later, I might head to walmart to get more black simply soft so I can finish the last few rows of Greg's hat.

Adam liked his hat and scarf. And he might eventually take a picture of himself in it and put it on his blog. Or I will take his picture when I'm home in Dec. Just to torture him.

I'm planning on starting a baby sweater to donate to the Gifts for Baby Jesus at church at Christmas. Well, by then it'll be a whole layette, but for now, I'm starting the sweater. The Gifts for Baby Jesus actually go to the home for crisis pregnancy moms and babies. I don't remember right now what the name is, but the gist of the charity is it helps moms keep their babies who need help with a place to stay and a job or job training. A slightly selfish charity gesture on my part though, because I just want to make cute small baby things, and this gives me an excuse.

Okay, I can't put it off any longer, I've got to go exercise now.

I'm a great plumber... I even have the butt crack going on at times.

So today I saved us a couple hundred dollars. The disposal was backing up, so instead of calling the plumber, I took the pipes apart under the sink and cleaned out the clog. It's all put back together now, and it's not even leaking. I have to say, I'm impressed with myself. So that's me, all proud.

Donna wants to know where I hid my ass in the shot of me and Adam's scarf. I've got mad standing skillz. But it's not like everyone doesn't know Beppy's got back.

I've been trying to get the house cleaned up all the way today. It's not been too bad so far, but I feel like I'm behind on a ton of things. But I did take out all the trash, fix the sink, do two loads of laundry and clean off the stove and the counter. Now I've got to do the dishes, clean up the living room, and bake cookies to take for the OCIA class tonight. I've got gingerbread dough in the fridge still, so I'm going to do gingerbread, and if there's not enough for all that, then also oatmeal, I think.

I'm almost finished with another hat for Greggy. The first one came out a little wrong, but he was nice about it. But I figured that he'd like a better hat, um, better. I may have to get another skien of black simply soft to finish it off, but that's cool, because it's inexpensive and very nice yarn to have around. It's what I used for that latest scarf of Adam's and his hat.

Okay, boring blog today, but I've been wanting to update more so that's what I get. :D

I'm the girl with the... well, you know what kind of eyes I got

Yep, you guessed right. Last night we went to a Stones concert. I'm never going to make fun of them for being old again. Mick Jagger's got more energy than I will ever have. It was a pretty awesome show. I really enjoyed it. And I didn't get jumped for wearing my KISS shirt.

The people right in front of us were passing around a joint. I thought that was made up, I didn't know people really did that at concerts. Anyway, the guy was crazy so I didn't ask for a hit. :) But you were right Adam, I could have.

Today I'm on my first time on my regular afternoon shift. And right from there I'll be headed to church to help with the dinner thing. I finished a hat to match Adam's scarf yesterday and this morning. I think it's pretty cute. Pictures later, after I'm dressed. Well, I'm not naked, just not picture ready.

I have to find some time to bake a bunch of crap for the bake sale too. I think I might do all my baking tomorrow morning, and then head over for working the sale in the afternoon. I'm not sure how it'll work. But I'm pretty sure the ladies will pretend they don't know me, because they haven't seen me for two days.

Okay, I've got to rush to get ready and clean the house before I go.

Change Stations Now

My first week went pretty well. I just have to get more comfortable remembering all the stuff that I'm supposed to say when I'm doing the selling bits. The other stuff is cool. I think I even remember all the names of the machines now too.

I got hooked on this riddle game: http://weffriddles.com/
It's actually really cool. I had to get Adam and Ben to help on some of the levels, but I'm on 24 now.

I've been busy this past week, with training for work and helping with the thing at church. I took the weekend off from that, which I'm sure hasn't made me super popular with the ladies, but I feel like Ben and I haven't gotten much time together, so I wanted to do an all Ben and me weekend.

We bought our tickets for Christmas. We're going to be in MI from the 20th to the 30th. Cool.

I made some gingerbread cookie dough, it's resting in the fridge right now. I thought it would be fun to cut some fall ones out to send to work with Ben. I've never eaten it before either, so I wanted to taste some. Though, I wouldn't have started if I'd known that one batch takes a whole jar of molasses. But it's a huge amount of dough, so I'll probably freeze most of it for cookies for the bake sale next week.

We're probably going to do some Christmas shopping and stuff like that today. The rest of this week is going to be even busier than last week because of the sale being next weekend and all. And Ben's going with the KofC to help sell concessions at the ASU game, so next weekend is going to be full.

Adam's scarf is almost finished. Hopefully, pics this week.
