Driving Miss Normie

I have no idea why my mom asks me to drive her places. All she does the whole time is complain about the temperature, complain about my driving, complain about how gross my car is. Whatever!

Yucky Feelings

I have yucky feelings today. I feel like I am on the verge of tears and I can't figure out why. I have had a couple pretty bad dreams lately....but that is all I can figure. Sad.

The Bachelor

I do not watch the Bachelor.   Never - it has not been one of "my shows" ever. I think I saw a couple episodes in college and tonight I am having to watch another episode of the show....for 2 hours! Here are my thoughts:

-I don't at all understand how these women can fall in love with a man who is dating and being intimate with 2 other women.
-Isn't this practically polygamy?  Or considered being a "player"?
-How can these women have any sort of dignity when they know he is going on overnight dates with other girls all in the same week?!?  Here's his calendar:

Monday- Jillian - Helicopter ride, beautiful lunch in the mountains, chat about marrying my best friend, dinner, sex*...
Tuesday- Mollie - Bungee jumping, nice lunch with a game of 19 questions, dinner where she asked him to spend the night with her (slut), sex*.....
Wednesday- Melissa - Boat ride on Winston Churchill's old sail boat, sweet conversation, kissing,  dinner, sex*....

Notice the running theme -S-E-X with 3 different girls on 3 different nights - in a row!

Quote "even though I am falling for all three of you"....annoying!

Quote "I could really see any of them as my wife"....annoying!

Each girl made a personal private video - "one last plea from the heart" - My opinion "Oh please please love me...I want to be your wife even though I know you love 2 other people too".  

I just couldn't do it!  


* I assume they would have sex.... They are in New Zealand for cripe's sake!  They are adults....they are being all romantic...there is wine.  Duh.

Valentine's Day

This morning I got the best card I have ever seen in my life. I got C a boring card that just said LOVE on the front and then "Once in a lifetime someone like you comes along" or something.... And then he gives me a card that says this:

Let's Promise to Always Be in Love
Let's always hold hands
and sneak kisses
and give hugs for no reason.
Let's always laugh together,
cry together,
and be there for each other.
Let's never stop talking
or sharing
or understanding each other...
Let's keep wishing on stars
and whispering secrets
and dreaming up new adventures.
Let's always love each other
like we do today.
Happy Valentine's Day

and then he wrote, I love you more and more with each passing day.

He makes me so happy. It also makes me very happy that we were both thinking on the very same wavelegnth when picking out our gifts. I got him a subscription to Food Network Magazine and he got me two great cookbooks from Williams Sonoma. A vegetable one and a seafood one. We are funny little people.

$25 a day

Can a girl like me live on $25 a day until payday? I have a Starbucks card with $12 on it and $10 cash too....we'll find out. I am slightly poor right now. I am hoping I can pull thru without asking my mama for help. Last time I checked my bank account there was $190 in there....Bah Humbug. I need to stay in control. There will be updates.

*Update Saturday*
Yesterday (Friday) I had to go to Louisville for work. I stopped at Starbucks in Frankfort for a Venti Vanilla Latte. I also had to get gas - it was less than $21. I grabbed a Grilled 7 Layer burrito and a large Tropical Punch with cash and I had to get a couple other things.... Yikes! I went over my $25... $21 for gas. $11 for 2 cards and a magazine (for Valentines day) and $10 for meatless meatballs and meatless sausage patties at Whole foods. Total: $42 arg.

Saturday: I have spent $0 today. And, I am thinking I won't have to spend any. We ate breakfast and lunch here at home and we are having spaghetti and salad and breadsticks for dinner. All at home - all for free!

Sunday: I didn't spend any money today either! C's mom is here and Turkey is here and we just stayed home and had a great day. Cartoons and snacking and giggling all day long.

The Wind

Holy Cow.  The wind is blowing so hard right now I think it might just blow my house over.  That would be kind of let's hope it does.

This week has been uneventful.  I had a long convo with my boss on Monday afternoon and work is starting to look up.  No word on the new job.  I had dinner Monday night with BAR at El Meson - not my favorite - but we decided to meet half way.  It was a nice time.  We had a good amount to talk about since we haven't hung out since October.  I filled him in on the love life, the new job, the move, all of it.  He filled me in on his job and the girl who might just be #3....  Interested to see what happens there!

 Yesterday I worked and came home and took a nap.  Boring, I tell ya.

I have had a crappy tummy all week.  Electric shock pains every day.  I have a doc's appt tomorrow at 10a, so hopefully she can fix me up.  I just hope she doesn't poke and prod too much or I am gonna cry.

I am heading south for the weekend tomorrow.  I have some audits to do in KY and it is C's bday Monday...Not to mention the big Valentine's day on Saturday.  Currently we are planning on spaghetti, breadsticks, salad, and cheesecake for Saturday's dinner.  It is going to be the funnest! ever.  We are having a princess party because the little Turkey is going to be with us.  I can't wait.  We are going to dress up and eat and giggle and there will be pictures!    

Yesterday she and I talked on the phone and she said that she wanted me to come over.  Rewind to last week when we had this convo:
Turkey:  Um, are you going to come over for dinner?
Frootie!:  No, baby I live 3 hours away.
Turkey: *sigh* ok, maybe for breakfast then?

I love her.  I love her daddy too.  He's everything to me.  He is a dream come true.

For once in my life

For once in my life I've got someone who needs me, someone I've needed so long. For once unafraid I can go where life leads me and I know I'll be strong. For once I can touch what my heart used to dream of long before I knew, someone warm like you, can make my dreams come true.

I am in it deep.  I'm thinking about white* dresses and flowers.  Here are a few dresses I love:

I have no idea how I got in so deep.  


Friday, February 6, 2009


My gut is bothering me today. Yesterday night I had bad pains and know*. Today it is just pain. I hate it! I had my doc call in my meds but since they come from Medco I have to wait for them to come in the mail. It'd be good if I had a normal gut.


*poo...I don't want to say it...

You ever have one of those moments when you feel like your heart just shriveled up into a raisin and you're wondering why you aren't dead? I just did. I just realized that I have spent a good chunk of time (30 hrs)working on a project and because it was dropped in my lap without much instruction it is now completed but it's completely wrong. Good start to the day.....

Dream Ring

Today I built my dream ring on  

Here it is:

Who wants to buy it for me?  


I love her

I got to spend a lot of time with Turkey this past week.  It was so awesome!  She is so much fun.  She is quirky and cute and smart and a great kid.  She made me a valentine.  


Turkey: Um, I made you a balentime.
Frootie!:  Oh really?  It's beautiful.  What does it say?
T:  I miss you *sad voice*
F: Well, little girl, why do you miss me?  I am right here.
T:  I know.  But when you leave.  I miss you. *sad voice then giggles*


Also - at one point last week she patted me on the back and said "That's my girl".  Apparently for a second I was 4 and she was 27.
