so apparently it is almost christmas. guess who is no where near being done shopping? thats right, its me... oh well it will all get done somehow...i hope.. other than being rushed and last minute, everything is great. especially jake, he is really great. i can't wait to have time with him over the holidays. having a normal boyfriend that gets gifts he selects for me. not a cd originally purchased for himself.. doing the family stuff. its awesome. we are really busy all weekend with all this holiday stuff. friday early evening going to jake's sisters for a brief visit. (note: they have not seen each other for maybe a year? could be awkward) then cabernet christmas party at ang and trav's. then hexbelt at M.O.B (yay!). saturday morning open gifts with mom. work 3-7. then go to steve and michelle's after work for family christmas. then go to uncle jim's to wrap up christmas eve on a high note. sunday go to Thomases for christmasey fun with the real "family". then sunday evening go to jake's friends robin and al's to fry a turkey?!? (don't ask me) then go to abby's for addy's birthday party. are you tired yet? i know i am! not to mention i have to make 3 cheesecakes, a few more batches of truffles, and some buffalo chicken dip and possibly cookies. jeez... and that is just christmas. who knows what we will do for new years. i love seeing everyone though. it makes me happy. :-)

Ground Rules: The 1st player of this game starts with the topic '5 weird habits/facts of yourself' and people who get tagged need to write an entry about their 5 weird habits as well as state this rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose the next 5 people to be tagged and list their names.

Weird Facts/Habits:

1. seperating the m & m's by color eating them the ones i like least first, and the ones i like best last. (the different colors do taste different i swear)
2. I don't like my hair touching my neck when I sleep. I will flip my hair over my pillow or wear it in a ponytail. Don't like to roll over and inadvertantly pull my hair in my sleep.
3. i don't like for the different foods on my plate to touch.
4. i also can't eat around people that lick their fingers, it ruins my meal
5. and also, when in bathrooms i don't sit on the seat. ever. except at my house and a select few other locations, like jakes house because i clean the toilet there. so i can trust it.

i don't even have 5 live journal friends. the only one i can tag is snatchgrl.

i don't know which is worse....summer weekends working where it is so busy you don't even have time to pee... or winter weekends where it is so slow that you literally watch the clock. at least i have tons of time to update my lovely journal. i would like to take this moment to thank the deeds household for giving me livejournal friends. i talked to courtney yesterday and she commented on how popular i am becoming on here. finally.
so i am excited about tomorrow. dawn switched shifts with me so i can go to the potluck. this is an extra special potluck. first of all this is an off week. but we are having this one in memory of Auntie P. Auntie P. passed away on thanksgiving eve. she is jodie pop's aunt. jodie is one of the hexbelt girls from way back. she lives now in sante fe. ironically i have never met her. however the brightest point in MY first ever potluck was meeting her mom and her aunt (Auntie P.) Auntie P. has been battling cancer for the last 5 years or so. also in that time period, her sister (jodie's mom) and her son also had cancer. she went through chemo so many times, that her and her sister took to wearing hat's all the time. all the hexbelt kids call them the Hat Brigade. she was such a bright light, and had such a strong spirit. one of those people you know you will never forget. so tomorrow is a potluck, and it's in her honor. mandy and i are going because we both felt so blessed to have gotten to meet her. also we are taking jake. time to intoduce him to the family. i wonder if we can turn some of that turkey into turkey a la king or something to take along? jake is making a 7 layer salad. i don't know what that is, but it sounds good.

i love thanksgiving. this is mostly because green bean casserole is my favorite food. and i love going to my grandparents house. but my grandpa is really sick. i can barely handle that. it totally breaks my heart. i need to spend more time with him. i know he will die first, but that is better. because grandma can live with out him, but he could never live without her. the last time he was in the hospital for his hip surgery, on the day he was being released...he refused to eat breakfast. because he wanted to go home and have breakfast with his wife. that was the first time they were ever away from each other in 52 years overnight. totally cute. i love them. what a beautiful example of a marriage. also, what do you do with the leftover from a 24 pound turkey that was made to feed 4 people? that is a lot of leftovers...

lovely pseudo enthusiasm. actually it's not that bad tonight. i am working by myself, which can be boring. but there is just enough business to keep me from going crazy, and just enough down time for me to to things like this :-) i have the next two days off also so that is great. worst days off ever, monday and tuesday. but still, they are days off, two of them, and they are in a row. so i can't really complain. all in all, things are going pretty damn great. jake and i are doing so so good. he is realy awesome. on friday he installed my car stereo, cleaned out my car, and filled my gas tank. so over the course of this weekend, i, cleaned his bathroom, washed his dishes, mopped the kitchen and the bathroom, and dusted basically the whole apartment. it's nice how we complement each other, he likes to do all that boy stuff and, i don't....

last night we went out to hear dreamscapes project at bube's. it was so freaking packed, we didn't stay too long. an hour and a half maybe and i drank 2 beers because it took forever to get served. yuck. i didn't even get to see courtney. i hated that. i did see herb across the bar and i waved at him. i also saw a million other people i know, namely, trav, jess, rachel rose, heather, alicia, messick, mello, addy, cory fischer, monk, jake, brian pope, leo, rachel, and sara cheney's mom. damn i know too many people. also it was mildly funny because the last time dreamscapes played at bube's was a hot tub night. so the one guy from the band kept giving me that look every time he walked by...you know what look i am talking about..."the last time i saw you, you were naked" look. but i really do like that band. i signed up on their mailing list and it didn't work. i should look into that. after we left bube's we met up with brenda and miles and got 6 packs. we headed to jakes and victor and tom came over. it was fun. tonight we are just going to stay in by ourselves. jake has to get up early in the morning. i don't. i am going to sleep forever. i can't wait...

So, here it is 2am. and where do you think i am? at the HILTON of course!!! the coolest place on earth. seriously, third shift bites. it's only tonight and tomorrow. but still. seriously. at least i am not tired. we were up pretty late last night. the last time i looked at the clock it was 7:19am. that dear boy stayed up late to help me acclimate my schedule, even though he had to work at 2 today and didn't get enough sleep. that boy is a doozy. so sweet. he makes me really realize what i have been missing. every other guy i ever dated was a complete tool. this dear boy brought me flowers last night. :-) the only flowers jon ever brought me were picked out and purchased by his mom... i had to beg him (jon) to send me a valentines day card...stuff like that. and its not right. because, not to be conceited, but i am a sweet girl, and i am a great girlfriend. now jake and i are both starting to realize how great things can be when two people that are both usually the giver in a relationship, get together. to sum it up, everyone wins. he does lots of really nice things, all the time. and he likes doing nice things, its obvious. so it makes me want to do nice things for him. which i do. all the time. i am becoming one of those happy people that i hate. i only sometimes wonder how long it can last? abby, mandy, and my mom all approve of him, so that is a good start. i worry about this being a rebound relationship for him though, or i guess for me too for that matter. we still haven't had that "talk" about the status of our relationship yet. that will come soon. i hope. we need to talk some things out. but every obstacle can be overcome if you want it bad enough. and neither one of us wants to change the other...so things are off to a good start. back to work now...yuck, is it 7AM yet???

hey, so here is the update courtney. since you are the only reader of this journal.. things are looking up. but always, as is my way, i look to the past. i wish i could quit doing that, but the changes that have happened in the last year make me very reflective. this time last year jill and i went to richmond with doug and jon for jon's birthday. that weekend was awesome. bordering on perfect even.. so yep, it's jon's birthday, i hope he has a happy day whatever he is doing. also it is baby paul's birthday. that little cutie. i saw lauren at the cap on thursday and hopefully i will get together with her and paul on monday to give him his present and hug him and play with him. other things to know, i miss jill. i had to watch the dog show by myself. i don't know what to do or how to contact her. i really don't know. it really hurts me that my friendship was a disposeable thing to her. there is nothing i can do i don't think, or maybe i should do something, but what? tom says that the best way to get an apology is to give one. even though i was not the one at fault, he says i should maybe email her and just say that i am sorry that there is negative energy between us. that is good advice. tom rules.
and i have officially started dating. but as usual, nothing is ever "normal" for me. the guy i am dating is the ex husband of my former childhood neighbor and friend. she and i are not friends anymore really because she is a bit mental and the last 15 times we were supposed to hang out she cancelled on me. i don't have much spare time as it is, so i can't make plans with people that never hang out with me. there are other issues but that is the major one. she and i haven't talked in about 2 or 3 years at least. and when i did hang out with them i always like hanging out with him more than her anyway. so we have been hanging out for a few weeks now. everything is going slow, which is ideal for both of us. he is a really kind person, and unlike the guys i usually attract he is not a social misfit. i haven't had him around my friends a lot yet so we will see how he does. anyway, its all in the casual stages right now. only time will tell..
other updates, i freaking love my friends. period. exclamation point! we are going to yonder next weekend, it will be freaking sweet. thanks for you time. i hate you third shift.
