These Things... [07 May 2004|10:23am]
There aren't many things on my mind these days... Jade is getting to be so big, so active, so independent. She pulls herself into a standing position and lets one hand go for balancing. If I hold her hands and walk with her she takes steps on her own.. and quick ones too. Its amazing how quick things change. One minute she barely moves and the next she is a monster. I have turned to Ebay in these frustrated times. I have spent too much money on Ebay over the last few days and maybe I shouldn't have. I have bought everything from Ugg-look-a-likes to cherry tube top dresses. I have even fucked up and bought things in a Large. Don't know what I was thinking but I just bid on it. I almost bought a bed on Ebay yesterday.. then I saw that shipping was like $250.. Its a good thing I actually read that auction. J and I haven't really talked about moving to New York since the day we first spoke of it. I wonder how serious he is or even moreso how serious I am? I really want to live in another city and New York would be my first choice.. but am I being realistic? Between money, friends, family, moving expenses, finding new jobs, daycare, is it really worth it? I honestly think so! Atleast I would be able to say, I lived there and I won't regret not going or wonder for the rest of my life what it would of been like to atleast try. I told J if he gave me the chance to try and we moved there and in a year he doesn't like it, we can come back. He is afraid that at the end of the year I will love it so much that I will refuse coming home... maybe this is true.. but how will we ever know? I sent his resume to a few jobs but not that many. I haven't sent my resume out yet.. but I will eventually. It isn't me that needs job security in order to move. We shall see what will happen! I have a pretty big craving for shrimp scampi lately.. I just want to eat everything in sight.. That is what happens when you have your period.. atleast that is what happens with me.. Looks like its going to be a pizza day today. I have been updating this entry for almost 3 hours.. we are so busy!
Allright now its been an hour since I wrote that sentence.. So I am just going to end this journal entry..
much love.

If I were a Carpenter-Johnny Cash [05 May 2004|10:33pm]
If I were a carpenter
and you were a lady,
Would you marry me anyway?
Would you have my baby?

If a tinker were my trade
would you still find me,
carrin' the pots I made,
followin' behind me.

Save my love through loneliness,
Save my love for sorrow,
I'm given you my onliness,
Come give your tomorrow.

If I worked my hands in wood,
Would you still love me?
Answer me babe, "Yes I would,
I'll put you above me."

If I were a miller
at a mill wheel grinding,
would you miss your color box,
and your soft shoe shining?

If I were a carpenter
and you were a lady,
Would you marry me anyway?
Would you have my baby?
Would you marry anyway?
Would you have my baby?

Ebay People are Such Idiots [04 May 2004|03:23pm]
I got an email from a potential "buyer" today.. The auction ended a week ago and sold for 70x more than what I paid. We bought the bag for 10 bucks it sold for $510.00! Look at this email

Dear wearinghislevis,

I would have bid on the plaid lucite bag, but repeated attempts to contact you failed. Too bad for both of us. Laelany

Thank you,

I don't recall not returning any emails that were sent to me regarding the lucite bag. Fortunately for me both bags that I had up sold for what I was asking. Thanks for your interest.

She acts like I didn't sell the bag!! What a retard!

New Favorite Song [24 Apr 2004|09:03am]

Birds flyin' high you know how I feel
Sun in the sky you know how I feel
Breeze driftin' on by you know how I feel
Its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me
yeah, its a new dawn its a new day its a new life for me ooooooooh

Fish in the sea, you know how I feel
River runnin' free you know how I feel
Blossom on the tree you know how I feel
Its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me
And I'm feelin good

Dragonfly out in the sun you know what i mean dont you know
Butterflies all havin' fun you know what I mean
Sleepin' peace when day is done that's what I mean
And this old world is a new world and a bold world for me

Stars when you shine you know how I feel
Scent of the crime you know how I feel
Your freedom is mine, and I know how I feel
Its a new dawn, its a new day, its a new life for me
(Free styling)

What would it take? [23 Apr 2004|11:31am]
I hope I make it to the beach this weekend. I need some sun & I need to smell like tanning oil for a day. I love the smell of the beach, so I am going for that this weekend. I have to work Saturday morning, which is a drag, but I get an extra $100 in my paycheck so it is worth it.
This entry blows.

You think you know, but you have no idea. [22 Apr 2004|12:45pm]
[ mood | pensive ]

The day is going to drag.. like most days. I am exhausted and Jade is not feeling well. I haven't been getting to bed at normal hours lately. I sit at the computer playing with Photoshop, trying to learn as much as I can. I went to bed yesterday around 1! That is late for me. Especially when I have to be up around 7! I picked up the Photoshop Wow book (which was referred to me by someone in the photoshop) and it has been helpful but I think I learn more with hands on trying rather then reading. I talk to Scott the other night and he helped me with one thing... Strange it is to talk to him, especially with all that was/is going on. I was going talking to him online when he asked me to call and said he could help.. I am going to have to ask Nicole some ?'s.. she probably knows hella more than I do. I finally got around to ordering lunch. Thank God! I am starving!! I am sure Jade is pretty hungry too. She is laying in her bed sleeping now. Thank God for Aunt Loretta... Getting Jade to sleep here is so easy but getting her to bed at home is a chore.. Loretta has some kind of magic.. On the way to work today Jade threw up all over herself. Because of that I had to run to Target to pickup a new outfit for her. Poor little monkey! Last night was fun. Amy came over and we made jokes & took funny pictures. It was loads of fun! Before that I went to Publix to pick up dinner stuff and when I was doing that some guy gave me his number. I was in the middle of signing a petition to Outlaw Doctor's with Medical Mal-Practice so I just smiled at him and let him hand it to me. When I was standing in line these girls at the register were talking about how cute he was... so I was thinking of going inside and giving them his number but I thought I would keep to remind me that even though I have had a kid, I am still desired. So that number will never be used but in a sense it made me feel alive.
This weekend is going to be great. I am making a good amount of money on Ebay so this weekend Amy and I are going to head out to Thrift Stores to pick up more stuff to sell. Plus Jackie, crackerjackass is crashing on Saturday night & Amy wants to, too! I tried calling Annie to see if she wants to but I haven't gotten ahold of her. I wish Nicole was here.. they would love her!! I called Nicole today and she wasn't available. Maybe Leigh will be available and we can all chill!
My sister, xxwishereyesxx was just rushed to University Hospital for severe chest pains. My mom is rushing to the hospital to make sure everything is OK.
Well, I think I posted a long enough post, bored you enough..
