stuff

Well the hair color was a success! The ones I bought the other day I took back so I could buy a different color on Walgreen's website. And it came pretty close! I bought L'Oreal Color Pulse - funky cherry, it's just a temporary color mouse but that's better for me for now. The reviews on the site said that it doesn't go away the way the box said so that's helpful. I had Darkside help me with putting it in and even though he covered every single part - it was almost dripping off! - it still didn't dye it completely. I've been having problems with that and regular color too. So maybe it's just my hair recently. It smelled really good too!! Nothing like regular color!

There's a pic of my new color & #3 doing what he does best. He worked for like 30 mins to get them all to stay and then begged me to snap a pic LOL!

I really wish that I talked to my cousin Amy cause that's who he is like. Just like her always wanting all the attention and not caring how outlandish they are to get it. Definetely one of kind type of people! Makes me wonder if he will follow the same life path as her. If so it's completely ok with me but it would definetely be neat as they are so similar in many ways already. Time will tell.

I was going to go to a distric meeting for Avon today but sadly I couldn't. I got about half way there and the car was just shaking too much for me to go on. I was too scared to try to go any farther. So I turned around to come home But on the way I got a bright idea - go see if Mouse could tell me what was wrong. Well great idea but he wasn't home. So his wife gave me his cell number and I'll have to call later. Hopefully it's just a tire or something kinda cheap. I don't want to spend a bunch of money on a car that will just be sitting for the next year!

Darkside STILL has NOT fixed the van! He just said to me I'll fix it soon, I swear! So in 2 weeks when it's still not fixed I can refer to this and prove to him that he's slacking LOL!

I'm planning on completely rebuilding my profile soon. I've been trying out different layouts from sites (as you may have noticed). I just don't like them though so I'll be working on it soon.

The site I wanted to tell everyone about is Fly Lady.com I've just discovered it 2 days ago and I love the concept! But I am forever the procrastinator so I'm not sure how good I'll do with it. It's a really neat idea for someone just like me though!

Right now I'm soooooooo tired! So I'm going to go take a nap with #4 and hopefully not sleep too long!

later.........

new laptop!

Well I'm completely writing this from the new laptop - MY new laptop! I love saying that - And let me tell you it wasn't the easiest thing to figure out -- the networking I mean.
First we tried w/o a router. Umm - DUH! gotta have a router. Don't get me wrong some of the wireless capabilities were there with transfering things but not the way it was supposed to be & there wasn't any internet. So next we went and got a router from good ole Wally World (cheapest there!) and headed over to Darkside's friend's house. This trip made me feel ALOT better! Cause this guy has networked his whole house & does this kinda thing for a living and he tries to set it up -- NOPE! Couldn't figure it out for about 30 mins! But then he figures out some of the problem - his network can't see us cause we're running Vista. So he says when you get home run the setup CD & connect -- should be no problems. YEA RIGHT! Didn't work like that at all. So we ended up calling tech support which we had the great opportunity to talk to a guy in some other country who of course acted like we were stupid Although there is NO answers to this problem in their site's FAQ - UGH! But anyway after both Darkside & I had to talk to him cause neither of us could understand him, we find out that we're special (no that kind of SPECIAL!!). We had to change some numbers on this one part -- whoop-t-doo! Who'da thought all those problems would of been from that?!
But anyway after I did all that blabbing and I still got lots more! LOL!
I watched Transamerica finally - I have had it from blockbuster for about a month now! I really liked it! Definetely not a movie most guys will want to see though! Darkside didn't watch with me - he was watching The Crow again =). All the actors in it did GREAT! Felicity Huffman was the best! But towards the end I couldn't believe it she did a full body nudity shot!! Though I'm not sure it was her actual body, ya know? Maybe it was some kind of body suit thing cause her boobs look MUCH bigger on Desperate Housewives. I know leave it to me to point out such a weird thing but can't help it! Darkside has influenced me LOL! AND -- gay porn has fluff boys!! I guess I never thought of that before! I know, I know - DUH ANNE! Definetely a movie to NOT let the kids see!
We was all sick again on Sun & Mon hopefully there won't be anymore in this house again this year! Twice back to back is enough for all of us!!
The second part of our tax money is here so our house is about to be a BIG mess. Does anyone want to help?? I hope to do all our floors as cheaply as possible - without cutting any corners! Umm... just in case I forgot to say it before - we're going to pull up all the floors in our house and replace with new subfloor (fancy word for plywood - @ $20 a sheet does it need a fancy word??). We're also going to lay vinyl tile in ALL the rooms, then lay carpet where we want it. This is so when the carpet gets too bad I can just pull it up and we still have an available floor covering. I absolutely detest dirty, stained carpet! So this way when I can't stand it no more I can toss the carpet instead of trying to shampoo over and over again. And with having 3 cats (2 picky males) and a small dog (with hopes to get a puppy soon) we need the ability to mop up any messes!
But with doing the floors around Darkside's schedule it will be a big mess here. But I'm so tired of about breaking my neck by stepping into the weak spots! Of course while we got the floors up we're going to redo some of the piping. Even though it's only a year old we had some 2nd thoughts on how we want to do things. Plus we're going to move the washer & sink in the master bath, not counting the fact that the 2 bathroom has to be completely redone! So with doing all that work we're also moving things around - who wouldn't when you got it all apart like that?!
I'm also hoping to get someone here to look at all our electricity too. Cause as some of you know, we have no electricity on one whole side of the house & the boy's room. Supposedly a cousin of mine is going to look at it? Never can tell with what someone says they'll do though.
Ok last thing - I think LOL! After last years storms & tornados I am hoping to be better prepared this year. If you didn't know before - we live in a trailer, so storms kinda scare me! Last year we had our old house & my grandma's to go to when the bad ones came through. This year we have nothing. So in light of this - plus I hate relying on anyone else! - I have been looking into how to build your own storm shelter. I've had a little bit of luck but I'm not completely sure on which type I want yet. What I want is something half in the ground, half out - built with concrete block reinforced with rebar & filled with concrete - with the roof attached somehow to the rebar that is sticking up through the top of the walls - double wall front leading to a door (kinda like a park bathroom) - and even more dirt piled up on the sides. Alot I know! But I want it to be sturdy & I was gonna have it double as a root cellar type place. I may of already spent all the money with all ^^ that stuff so it may not be something I can do this year. If not then I have this friend *nudge, nudge* who loves me so much **your reading this right?!** that hopefully I'll be able to camp out at her house when the storms come through!! Other than that I'm screwed on options this year.
Are you reading this my bestest friend with a mother of the same name??? You know who you are! LMAO! Hey while I'm thinking about it - Darkside said his email box is empty LOL! Just j/k'ing! <--- ya know you could always send this one to him
well that's all for now............. I know too much already but oh well! Next time some on a new site I'm loving!!
later....

bored

Well, Darkside is at work again tonight so I'm sitting here bored. I have about a million things I NEED to do but I don't want to do right now.

I finally got to put in my C4 order tonight, it's late going in but should still be here on time. C4 was $380+ !! That's a really good order! This is the size of orders I need to get all year so I can hit PC in 2008. So I gotta make sure I can keep the customers I got & hopefully add about 5 others.

I broke down last week and bought a load of seasoned firewood. This is DEFINETELY the way to go! They catch really easily & fast. So it looks like for this year at least we're spending out more but next year will be cheaper!

Darkside's dad got arrested the other night for DUI finally. He's been driving home drunk from the bar for at least the last 3 years and never got caught. We've been yelling at him not to drive home drunk but he never would listen. We even threatened with calling the police on him, but never did. We're not entirely sure what the penalties are going to be for sure but more than likely he'll lose his license for awhile. This is what worries us the most cause he's not the type to rely on ANYONE for anything. So hopefully everything works out somehow - still gotta work on this one!

I bought some hair color the other day and hopefully I can get it in tonight. It's intense auburn. I wish like hell I could still find the color that I used in my profile pic! But they stopped selling it or changed the color, something cause I can't find it no more. So hopefully this new color will come close. I'll take some before & after pics but not sure if I'll post them on here or not LOL!

Vista so far is ok - it sucks cause IM hasn't upgraded to it yet. So although they say it can't be run on Vista, we run it. And it does ok but not the same as before. For one I can't patch it and thumbnails don't show up in the stylebox. So this makes things difficult to say the least.

Well I've blabbed enough I guess. I'll go mess with my profile for awhile now =)

oh yea - and I'm still sick

new stuff

Well I'm still sick I think it's moved to a new section of my lungs or something. I quit smoking & am using a patch. Anyone who knows me knows I must be REALLY, REALLY bad off to stop smoking.

But some good news is we got our new computers!! Well........we got the desktop processor but the monitor for it & my laptop is on it's way, should be here Thursday --- WOOHOO!! I can't wait! I've almost got everything off our old computer onto the new one - but then I need to re-install all our programs on this one. Vista is pretty neat - especially going from ME to it.

Next on my agenda is to figure out how to network these two computers together. I have NO clue on how to network anything together so it should be fun to learn about. This new computer didn't come with a restart/format CD so I hope I don't screw up too much LOL!

later........

**edited to add that we also won a camcorder on eBay so we'll be making videos soon too LOL!

stuff

i'm so streeeeeeeeetttttcccccccccccccccchhhhhhhed lately!! i meant to come back on here and write more but nope didn't get to. Everything is a mess & i've got everything ½ done, but nothing completey done i know what it is, too many big decisions to make.

Like one is this - We want to get 2 new computers but i HATE to spend too much money on ANYTHING! But there are some certain things i want in these 2 computers which of course cost alot. Here's the 2 we're thinking about - #1 & #2 i really wanted to get #1 cheaper than that like maybe a couple hundred and i really want #2 to be that price with a monitor, cause we really need a new one. So next we're gonna check out maybe getting something that is refurbished.

And i'm not real sure about getting a PC with Vista. When we first got this thing it had the "new" Millenium (ME) and there was no one who knew anything about it when we had problems for the 1st yr. After that it wasn't too bad and even ended up being a good system for us. But after all we've heard about XP Home Ed we're a little leary. But we also know that these are the same things people said to us about ME. so.....

We've been checking out prices through store's websites. i haven't noticed a difference between actual store & online prices so i think we're ok doing it this way? If i'm wrong holler at me so i know.

Oh and on the whole i HATE to spend money thing. Last year we spent out over $3000 on heating our old house (10/05-1/06) and it was still freezing in there! We walked around completely dressed (covered except head & hands) all the time and slept with 2 blankets, too! Actually we finally paid last years heating bills off with the help of an agency here in Sept. So we moved in January to a all electric trailer that is ½ as big and we decide this winter we'd heat with a woodstove. But we didn't make that decision till October (we had a filled summer ) and we didn't have enough money saved up to buy one till December. Well just for anyone who don't know (we didn't!) it is not possible to buy cheap dry wood in December! So we have tried everything - side note - don't burn duraflame logs in woodstoves unless you like being cold & having a VERY smoky house! Cold because you opened the doors on one of the coldest nights of the year to get smoke out of your house so you can breathe and stop the tears from the smoke burning your eyes. And smoky cause the pipes & rain cap are all clogged from the cresote build up from burning the 2 before that. Yes all of that and we just burned 3!!! And yes i know they say do not use in woodstoves but they do say you can use in fireplaces - not much difference there!

But anyway we've got a sawmill we go buy mill ends from. But it's an amish guy so they shouldn't have any chemicals on them. It's a great price $20 a truckload, hell a truckload would last us probably all winter! but of course we have no truck. We don't even have the back of the van now (i'm still in shock over that!). So we go and fill up the trunk till we're sure it can't take any more weight. But the thing is they are still wet inside so they don't burn good at all! With all the recent ice storms we've been getting sticks & branches from the neighbors. They're wet too but dry out quicker usually.

Not sure if you know this or not but there are 2 universal ways to cut wood for burning - chop w/ an axe or cut w/ chainsaw. Well either way Darkside's back is put through hell. So we have to do a little bit at a time so He doesn't flair those disks up too badly. And working with an axe is the worst on His back He almost went to the dr but didn't i watched Him pop 3 Vicodins in row! He still was in pain! Didn't even feel woozy! Not me, i take one and BAM! i'm woozy & HIGH it's great! Especially when it kills the pain - mmmmm.... That's what i had before, during, & after all my dental work. But His back isn't hurting now

i was gonna tell Robyn about ^^ but she hasn't called in awhile. She'd just die knowing he took that many! She'll call when she's ready though, she usually does.

Well that's only a portion of the crap i had to say. So i'll be back when i get a chance =) Is myspace the shit though? You get to see all kinds of people you aint seen in years. Great for either making yourself feel better or like crap

Oh and one last thing - i definetely HAVE to hook up the mic soon cause you all should hear #4 She somehow learned to say OH-MY-GAWD just like Janice on Friends LMAO! It's just toooo funny & cute! i'll try to do that today too.

later.....
