I feel so.. icky!

Some one out there has my information.. I got a letter from the University of Florida telling me that their security has been breached and that my information was part of the system stolen. They don't know if the intruder will use my information but they advised for me to take action to be safe. I put a alert on my credit accounts and will start the "process" to put a freeze on my accounts tomorrow. It shouldnt be so complicated to put a safety on my information! ugh this makes me feel so gross.. and paranoid! Someone has my address and my SS number.. as if I wasn't scared at night enough. gRRR

killing time

ah relief! Chandler and I are feeling much better after a weekend of torture. Chandler seems a bit tired today but thats about it. Now its time to assess the damage of laying on the couch all weekend and clean house. blah. no bueno.

so Mike is out of town for the week on business in Vegas. I hate these long trips. Especially since I didnt really get to see him before he left since I was sick. I tend to get very insecure when he is gone and not getting to snuggle with him or say goodbye doesnt help ease those feelings. Just gotta keep myself busy.. thats the key. Luckily christmas is around the corner so i am using that as an excuse to keep busy.

so.. random thought of the day..

I think I want to try to train to run a half marathon. I can't imagine the feeling of accomplishment finishing something like that. but how to get the drive or motivation or discipline to train for that.. thats the real problem. any ideas?

well I can't think of anything else to write about. that killed about 5 mins.. *sigh*

bring me a bucket

wow I am so ill right now. i can't keep anything down but the worse part is that my stomach hurts so bad. Actually the worse part is that this completely ruins my weekend. We were suppose to go watch a movie at a friends house tonight and than go early in the morning and go deep sea fishing. My husband is leaving for a week on a business trip so it was our chance to do something fun together. PLUS Sunday is Chandlers first primary program at church. He has a line and a song to sing.. hopefully I'll be better by than. Honestly I feel like I am dying.. blah. I have nothing to drink here and my jello is taking sooo long to well become jello. Sucks. pray for me *puppy eyes*

well crap

So Obama is now president. President Barack Obama... *sigh* hmm.. what to say.. what to say...

I hope and pray that I am wrong with my feelings of mistrust of Obama and fear for the country.

I think I am going to take a huge sleeping pill and sleep until next election. Hopefully when I wake up the country wont be in shambles.

Its our duty.

So last night after our tire fiasco, Michael and I sat down and looked at the sample ballot and discussed each issue and what they were all about. and also looked up all the candidates and discussed what each one was about. so we filled out the sample ballot and were pretty much set to vote in the morning. There were I believe two amendments that we didnt really know what they were about so we didnt vote on those and we didnt vote on the judges cause we couldn't find ANY information on them ANYWHERE.

I got up at 6:30 this morning, got dressed and drove (Mikes car) to the voting precinct. There were a few people in line but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. There were alot of booths so it went rather quickly. i was talking to another lady and she said that she couldnt find any information on the judges either so she was voting for them. She didnt want to make a uninformed vote. So I felt better about that.

I went in a did my thing, got my sticker, and left. when I started the car the DJ's were talking about other places that were giving away free stuff like Starbucks, Krispy Kreme, and Ben and Jerry's. WHAT?! lame. Oh well.. at least I did my American Duty. On the way home, the whole path way there were Obama signs that simply said Change. CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE CHANGE. all the way home. I couldnt help but think of Monty Pythons Spam song. I would like change, change, change, change, sausage, and change. I DONT LIKE CHANGE!!!!! lol. I dunno.. it really turns me off of a candidate that feels they need to campaign THAT much. Its insane. I believe I saw one.. maybe 2 McCain signs.

Anyway I hope everyone got the opportunity to vote today. and I hope and I pray ( I REALLY REALLY pray) that this country gets put into the right hands.


I had my appointment in Lake City yesterday at four as usual. Lake City is about 30 mins away from where I live by interstate. As I was coming home, I was behind this car and he did a really quick swerve out of the lane. It happened so quickly that I had no reaction time and I hit something.. a big something and it totally took out my back tire. At first I couldnt tell the tire was gone so I drove a bit but than it started getting out of my control .. but I tried the best I could to drive till I got to a call box which I did thankfully.
I pulled over and got out and looked at the tire.. or lack of.. totally gone. I pushed the button for the police and ran and jumped back into my car locked the doors and cried. Yes I know... I am a big baby. BUt I was alone of the side of the interstate in the middle of nowhere with no cellphone, no weapon of any kind.. in the pitch dark. One.. I am paranoid.. two.. I hate being alone.. and three I hate the dark.
But finally the officer came and she was kind enough to call my husband so he came to my rescue. We got the spare tire out and of course it was flat. *sigh* but it had enough air to put it on and drive to the next exit to get some air. SO we drove to a gas station put a dollar in the air machine and it broken.. GREEATT. Thats all the change we had. Luckily we were able to get home and had nice enough babysitters to watch the kids later than expected. But now I don't have a car cause we dont have the money to get new tires. Its my mission today to search the house for change (Wheres Obama with my promised change?) so I can put some air in the tire. So it was a fun night. But I was proud of my self for not letting in and destrying my whole night.

Trick or Treat

Happy Halloween! (a couple of days late)

Its hard to believe there are only two months left in the year. 2008 just FLEW by.

So our Halloween went pretty well. The kids dressed up and got alot of candy which made them happy which is what its all about. Chandler went as Optimus Prime which if you don't know who that is, is a transformer. He was so excited to be a transformer although he orginally wanted to be bumblebee. But the only Bumblebee costume I found was for older kids. Here is his costume...
He was very polite at every house we went to. He told everyone Trick or treat and walked into their house grabbed the candy and said thank you and Happy halloween and left. LOL. Thats our boy.

Gwyneth was little Red Riding Hood this year. She was sooo freaking cute! We got alot of compliments on her costume and how cute she was which does a parents heart good.

It took her awhile but twoards the end she started figuring out what Trick or treating was all about.. CANDY!
all in all it was a good night. Two exhausted kids and parents.. candy.. I love the Holidays =)
