Rainbows and Sunshine, or lack thereof

current song: My ringtone

God, it's been forever since I've been on the ol' LJ. I come on every once in awhile to keep myself in the loop a bit, but haven't felt like writing in a long time.
I'm not sure if everyone has heard, but Joe and I broke up. We broke up the night before our four year wedding anniversary, but we'd been together 13 whole years. LONG damn time. It was totally mutual and a long time coming, but still heart breaking and the most difficult decision of my life. The weirdest thing about the situation right now is that we are still living together, but just as roommates. In fact, we decided to get another roommate to make things less awkward. Kind of a buffer of sorts. It's working out so far, but then again neither of us has started any sort of serious dating...that will be weird. We'll go our separate ways probably end of Spring, we just need to get all the crap taken care of. Car, house, cats, etc.
We both agreed the most important thing during this whole time is that we remain friends and make it as "easy" as possible. We care about each other too much to make it ugly and it's just not worth it. We joke about how someday we'll both be old farts and still really great friends.
We just ask that our friends support our decision and love us no matter what. Everyone has been great so far except Joe's sister. She is the only one that has been giving us shit and being extremely judgmental; it's pretty sad. I miss my nieces so much, but I really don't want to go through a firing squad every time I want to visit them. It makes me very sad.

Well, now I'm off to buy White Trash groceries at the outlet store. Welcome to being single!!
And then I'm going to see Cloverfield with Joe and our roommate. I've heard awesome things.

I'll be back later with a list of my WT groceries to share with everyone. Let's see how creative I can get with my purchases.

Jeez, I just realized I look naked in my new picture. I'm not...I swear.
Or am I?

Joe has been making up names for me everyday. Today my name is Demetri, so I named him Little Lord Fauntleroy.

Now I must go weed the yard because Joe's parents are coming this weekend. Wish me luck.

Here are some beeeeeeautiful pictures I took of the beeeeeautiful 7 months pregnant Annie. It was a fun day, but I was self-conscious and so was she, but we got some great shots. Unfortunately there was a damper put on the day when we found a tiny tiny half dead kitten still wet and sticky with it's umbilical cord attached. It ended up dying. :(

List of April #2:

1) I haven't had any alcohol since February 3rd, so I decided to have two glasses of wine tonight and I'm totally wasted. TWO glasses. Ridiculous. Joe thinks it's hilarious.
2) Saw a special FREE screening of Knocked Up (http://www.knockedupmovie.com/) and it ROCKED. Seriously. When it comes out in June you must see it. Way funnier than 40 Year Old Virgin. Granted, it doesn't have any Micheal McDonald jokes in it, but it's really funny. Want to see free movies like me????? Go to www.jefften.com and get on the email list.
3) Saw the midnight showing of Grindhouse last night and seriously, it was sooooooo good. The second movie wasn't as good as the first, but still really funny and very female positive.
4) Had an Easter egg hunt at our house and a yummy Easter lunch (provided by yours truly).
5) Taught my 10 year old nephew how to play DDR today.
6) Thinking of becoming a travel agent because I planned my sister and her family's Disneyland vacation. (not really, I like my job, thank you.)
7) Had a freak out this week because I thought noone liked me and nobody would come to my 30th birthday in June.
8) Gained .2 lbs at WW this week. .2????????!!!! What is that? That made me mad. But I've already lost 7 lbs of my horrid amount that I've gained from butterscotch pudding and slim fast.
9) Back to the Easter lunch. I made the best turkey ever. For the recipe go here: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Perfect-Turkey/Detail.aspx
10) I feel cute right now. (RARE!)
11) I get to go to the Sasquatch Festival!!!! To see the Beastie Boys and Sarah Silverman!!! Anyone wanna go with us?? http://www.sasquatchfestival.com/

I love everyone!

My old passion of "listing" is back...

Since I've been off LJ for way over a month, here's a list to get you all updated:

1) I officially quit smoking
2) I haven't had a drink in...I can't even remember how long. I'm waiting for the right weekend.
3) I'm obsessively playing Dance Dance Revolution at home for exercise.
4) I'm eating healthy again after three weeks of eating nothing but butterscotch pudding and Slim Fast shakes. I somehow managed to gain a bunch of weight back after my surgery even though the doc said I would lose. Figures!
5) I'm not depressed anymore.
6) Joe and I are laughing everyday again and enjoying each other's company (we weren't getting along for awhile there).
7) I love my house all over again because we got new toys (sectional couch and AWESOME refrigerator).
8) I'm gardening!!! And things are staying alive - so far. I'll post pics when things start growing for reals.
9) This one is the biggest change of all for me.... I am now officially financially responsible. (shudder)
10) I no longer have my tonsils. I miss them! Food tastes weird now.

EDIT:
11) I've started volunteering at the Humane Society again scooping cat poop and cuddling with skinny smelly cats. YAY!

Tonsillectomy 101

current mood: nervous

So I'm scheduled to get my huge rotten tonsils out on February 19th, exactly two weeks from today. I've been researching the recovery and what foods I can eat, etc. - and it's not pretty. Here is a quote from a forum I found: Getting my tonsils out back in Aug 06 was the worst experience of my life - blah! It took me a good 30 days to recover back to 100%.
Sounds awesome.
Luckily she goes on to say that she's healthier now. That's exactly what I'm hoping for.
If you want some more fun tonsillectomy discussion: http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=465883

I'll be out of work for two weeks and I'll get to eat lots of KFC mashed potatoes and gravy. Yep, the secret's out. That's my secret junk food obsession. I only have it about three times a year, but it tastes like heaven to me. I'm a nut.

Hello LJ world. I'm sick yet again, seems like my immune system is against me.
I had tonsilitis back in early December, but my tonsils never fully recovered. So Friday I was at work sitting at my desk and I almost fainted. It freaked me out, so I went to the doctor and they told me I have tonsilitis AGAIN, but I also have vertigo. Fun! But the most fun part was on the way home I got a flat tire in the rain. I was on the verge of a mental breakdown and realized that wouldn't do me a lick of good. So I called my roadside service (oh, I love you roadside service) and was home within an hour.
Anyhoo, they FINALLY referred me to an Ear, Nose and Throat doc to talk about getting the little fuckers removed.
I'm on a crazy organizing trip right now. I want to organize the shit out of everything - it's awesome. Although my house is now messier than it was because I've taken everything out of cupboards and drawers...well, to organize.
Well, much love to all.

And now one of the cutest pictures I've ever taken:

I'm only posting to share New Year's pics. I'm not in the mood to write, only to say that the seasonal depression has hit me full force. I don't really feel like doing much of anything except watching WAY too much TV and not doing the housework I'm supposed to.

I was inconsolable when I saw this on the news tonight:
http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-na-family7dec07,0,471422.story?coll=la-home-headlines

Joe was worried about me because I couldn't stop crying...but it's just not fair. Fuck.
And fuck Lars Larson and his rant about Americans thinking they're invincible. Okay, how about you wait until the family is done grieving before you tell them they're idiots? I'd like to see how you'd feel if your wife was found dead from starvation and hypothermia because she was trying to save your life and your babies' lives. What a cocksucker.

Sorry. End of rant.

In good news, it was our three year anniversary today (of being married). We have two anniversaries since we were together nine years before we got hitched. :)
Go here for a cheesy anniversary slideshow and to listen to the greatest version ever of "Fields of Gold."
