I just needed to go out and do it and I did. (now if I only had the same motivation to clean around here)
Hopefully I'll get subbing jobs in Lexington once I get down there....maybe even in Winchester. I should call the board there and get on their list.
Well, with business starting (hopefully) to boom, I'm hoping to be quite busy before I move. I need to come into some money...or find a sugar daddy!

I happen to like the city of Lexington quite a bit. No it's not the size of Cincinnati, but it's not small town America either. (tried that...don't do well there). Our apartment....can't beat the price. $530 for a 2bed/2bath that's 936 sqare feet?! I mean really! Can't beat the location. 5 minutes from Man O'War, 5 minutes from New Circle (the 2 ring roads of the city), 2 minutes from my "brother's" house, and about 10 from the scrapbook store! Jobs: not yet, but I talked to a friend who's down there and they said that everyone and their brother is hiring in Hamburg so I'll start looking there.
It's just going to be great! Lexington will never be the same again! hehehe I can't even remember any major argument between J and I. Sure I had to put him in his place a few times, but nothing to the point of us not talking or anything. woo hoo!!! Ok, I"m out to go find something to do. I have a paycheck that got misplaced in all of the moving....it's only $25, but hey...that's a tank of gas! (almost)

I do think that part of it has to do with everything that is going on/has been going on in my life lately. Lots of BIG things have happened in recent weeks. Right now, I just want to get everything together to move.....not even focused on Christmas. Oh well, maybe next year.
Thursday, December 22, 2005
At first I wasn't gung ho on it all, but J and I had a heart to heart and he just looked at me and said, "Katy, what is holding you here?" He's right....there's nothing keeping me here. I don't have the responsibility of a relationship or kids. Hell I didn't even totally have a job to come home to. I have my Mary Kay that can go anywhere! It's time!
As far as the "fairly serious" question... I asked that because of a converstation I had. Someone I know flew to MI see a girl. (the man NEVER flies and HATES cold). This person, only about 2 weeks later is driving to see this same girl and spend Christmas with her. I asked if they were getting serious, and the comment made to me was "fairly serious". My speculation is anything like that must be more than fairly serious. Just an observation. I honestly don't care who this person dates. If he's happy, then I"m happy for him.

Sunday - Got up, went to church, heard the contata (and my little cousin sing a solo....way to go Zach!), came home, unpacked the car, went to a Bengals/graduation party, came home and crashed.
Yesterday - Got up, stopped by grandma and grandpa's. Got a BEAUTIFUL white gold and diamond bracelet from them (it's X's and O's all the way around with the O's being diamonds) headed to Lex. with Aunt Debi and JT, made the decision that I am going to move to Lexington with JT. Throughout the day, I talked to my "brother" He appologized for not being at my graduation, but it was b.c he was in the hospital! I couldn't believe it. I told him, of course, not to worry about it since he was in the hospital. He said, I did hear your speech though. I was a little confused. He had his sister drive down to graduation and had him on the phone during my speech so he could hear it in the hospital. I love that family!!!
Today - Headed back to Lex. to look at some more apartments.
There are several other things that I want to comment/ponder, but we'll get to those later!!! For now....what does the term "fairly serious" when used in a relationship mean to you?

Here I am. It's my last day with my kiddos. There were days that I didn't think it'd come soon enough. I don't want to leave them though. I didn't sleep much last night. Maybe it's becuase of the nap I took yesterday. Maybe it's because I'm like a little kid at Christmas ...especially since we're having our Christmas party today. There are gifts galore in that room!
Just look at them underneath my "tree". (I thought it was a cute idea at least!!) Well I should finish up getting ready. Have a good one!!
Only 2 more days until graduation!! AHHHH

You might not be her first, her last, or her only. She's cared about someone else before and possibly will again, but if she cares for you now, then what else matters? She's not perfect and you aren't either, and the two of you will never be perfect, but if she can make you laugh at least once, hold onto her & give her the most you can. She might not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break. So don't hurt her, don't change her & don't expect more than she can give. Don't over analyze, smile when she makes you happy, yell when she makes you mad, and miss her when she's not there.
Have a great day! I'm almost done! It's hump day!!!

Sunday I got up.....after not much sleep since my conversaion had continued to about 330. Still no word from Brian. I call him and once again get his voicemail. At this point in time, I'm VERY NOT happy with him. So I pack a little bit, but then realize I need some retail therapy. So that's what I do. Went shopping, got myself some things, but I was also able to get some Christmas shopping done as well. Still nothing our of Brian. So I come home and pack some more and give a friend of mine that was wanting to spend some time together before I move a call. He ended up coming over and we hung out for a bit. Ordered pizza, bullshitted, played on Ebay. Next thing we knew it was going on 11 so he left and I headed to bed.
Yesterday my mom saved the day!! I got a call from her while I was at school saying that she was going to get the van and bring it down so we could take a bunch home. Grandpa came too. Man, they were shocked to see how much I had actually finished. In about an hour, we had the van packed to the point where grandpa said that he couldn't see anymore if we put anything else in it. Then it was off to dinner...at Outback!!! WOO HOO!!! Janine and Bobby met up with us there. We laughed and ate and laughed some more. Other than that, I was wiped! I came home and by 9 I was passed out. I needed it though as I could hardly keep my eyes open yesterday at school. That's what happens when you stay up until 330....the next day I'm fine...it's the day after that I'm screwed.
Have a great day yall!!!

When I got home from school, the fight with UPS was over! I didn't have to drive to N. Lexington to give them a teacher look at all!! It was here waiting on me! WOO HOO!!! I messaged my "wife" and said, "Please tell me we are going to O'Charley's tonight...I NEED it." The answer was yes. I head downstairs to get ready to leave and she informs me that she's sick...not the contageous kind, but still. YUCKY!
So off to O'Charley's we went to see our waiter! Had a grand time as usual. We went in and asked to be sat in his section. The guy sits us there and after a couple minutes, a girl came over and asked us to take our drink order. Well, I just look at Pamela...She looks up and says, "We thought this was Brandon's section." The girl says no. Pamela goes on and says, "We're sorry, but we just asked to be seated in his section." The waitress was very understanding and told the obviously new host where to seat us.
Well, Brandon was in smoking...wasn't really all that bad. We just weren't used to being all the way back there...neither was he. He was glad to see us! (as always...hehehe) Fun times had by all when dining with Brandon as your server. Pamela, not always thinking has 2 drinks on her food empty, but medicine filled stomach which is why the mission started in the first place!
This is my "wife" in all her sick, glory! Isn't she cute!!! :)
So what was the mission?? Wel..Pamela continually knocked over these golden reindeer decorations. As a result it became a real joke. So she asks Brandon if she can take one home. He says, "only if you put one in my car too." The next natural question is well, which one is it?? He tells us which one and tells us the fact that it's unlocked. Well, as we leave, Pamela actually takes them with her. I couldn't believe it. She picks them up in her coat and heads to the bathroom. Well she can't get them zipped in her coat at all. So she folds her coat over and high tails it out the door, without looking suspicious. We pull around to the side of the building where Brandon's car is and he's in it...I roll my window down and say, "Hey Brandon, we've got something for you." He runs back in the building saying, "I can't see this!!" We have pictures to prove our mission:
The reindeer must say one last adieu to one another as they will miss each other.
This is Pamela "breaking into" the unlocked car to leave him a present. As a side note: he had his keys in the ignition and that annoying dinging was going on while we were trying to take care of business!
This is his reindeer waiting for him to drive off into the sunset....well, into the darkness since the sun was well beyond set.
What's the moral of the story???
When you've had a bad day, go to a restaurant and sit in a hot waiters section!

it's cold outside and i like it.when i can feel the tiny places in my hair, the underneath side and behind my ears, that aren't quite dry yet. and there must be a drop or two in my ears because, since my hair is pulled back, i can feel them almost freezing in those little curves and crevices. and way up top where two studded earrings lay side by side... it's cold there too.and my nose must be running at a constant pace by now. my breath bearly beating it, with it's statement right in front. shouldn't the nose win... by a nose though? it is a nose. nosy. a nosy nose with rosy cheeks as neighbors.and they all join in, face freezing, breath breathing, heart beating. in sync.as i walkand walk along a heavily treaded way. and you wouldn't even know it because it looks as though no one has stepped foot here before. until i see others walking ahead of me and look back and see they're coming up from behind... and look side by side and see that some have reached their final destination and are turning back again... they must not have liked what they saw.they must not have known how to appreciate the warmth... where the little places, heads and faces, begin to flush again with heat and hot.what more did they expect.warm grace was not enough.salvation from the chilled at heart.
Also, I had seen this before, long ago, but it was sharted with me again last night. It is TOTALLY true.
One Flaw In Woman
By the time the Lord made woman,
He was into his sixth day of working overtime.
An angel appeared and said,
"Why are you spending so much time on this one?"
And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her?
She has to be completely washable, but not plastic,
have over 200 movable parts, all replaceable
and able to run on diet coke and leftovers,
have a lap that can hold four children at one time,
have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart
-and she will do everything
with only two hands."
The angel was astounded at the requirements.
"Only two hands!? No way!
And that's just on the standard model?
That's too much work for one day.
Wait until tomorrow to finish."
But I won't," the Lord protested.
"I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart.
She already heals herself when she is sick
AND can work 18 hour days."
The angel moved closer and touched the woman.
"But you have made her so soft, Lord."
"She is soft," the Lord agreed,
"but I have also made her tough.
You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."
"Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.
The Lord replied,
"Not only will she be able to think,
she will be able to reason and negotiate."
The angel then noticed something,
and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek.
"Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model.
I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one."
"That's not a leak,"
the Lord corrected,
"that's a tear!"
"What's the tear for?" the angel asked.
The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy,
her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love,
her loneliness, her grief and her pride."
The angel was impressed.
"You are a genius, Lord.
You thought of everything!
Woman is truly amazing."
And she is!
Women have strengths that amaze men.
They bear hardships and they carry burdens,
but they hold happiness,
love and joy.
They smile when they want to scream.
They sing when they want to cry.
They cry when they are happy
and laugh when they are nervous.
They fight for what they believe in.
They stand up to injustice.
They don't take "no" for an answer
when they believe there is a better solution.
They go without so their family can have.
They go to the doctor with a frightened friend.
They love unconditionally.
They cry when their children excel
and cheer when their friends get awards.
They are happy when they hear about
a birth or a wedding.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They grieve at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left.
They know that a hug and a kiss
can heal a broken heart.
Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors.
They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you
to show how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning.
They bring joy, hope and love.
They have compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and friends.
Women have vital things to say and everything to give.
HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN,
IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH
I'll post later on how my day has been.

On another sad note, (but not near as sad), Pamela and I went to O'Charley's last night and Brandon wasn't there. Not only was he not there, but our waiter was horrible. Now it's very rare that I don't leave a tip at all, but last night was one of those nights. UGH! He made what was supposed to be an enjoyable night, something else to bitch about.
Now, a happy note. I was observed today and it was WONDERFUL!!! I received nothing but excellents! YAY for me! I rock!! :) Only 16 more days til the real world.
