Party Time........

Shavua Tov (a good week) to everyone. I hope y'all had a restful Shabbos. For my part I was asleep by 11, and up at 8:30. I read a 600 + page book between last night and today, but I have read it before. I have a load of laundry in, and have cleaned up from the Holy Sabbath. We are having a Chanukah party here tonite, followed by a shiur (scholarly discourse) on said holiday. I totally forgot that tonite was New Years Eve, which is kinda funny, but I remember now. Since I remember I will take this opportunity to wish a Happy Anniversary to R & D, may you have many many more happy years together! I have no idea what time this party starts, but as of yet flatmate is not home, so it can't be that soon!!!!

Hope everyone has a good Shabbos. Will try to write more after the Sabbath ends. I am currently exhausted!

WOO HOO!!!!!!!!!!!

OK I am home! The wedding stuff all got to the wedding hall with minimal fuss. It is scheduled to start in 25 minutes. When I left tonight they were already starting to make the food for Sheva Brachos, which should make tomorrow go easier. It was not as bad as I thought today, he only yelled at me once, and that was not even really at me, just kind of in my general direction, and it was over the phone, so really not so bad. Anyway, I have to go light Chanukah candles. Chag Sameach!

Hi Y'all...............

Ok so I just need to start this post by saying that I am sad. My Abba had to have Stuss (his cat) put down this morning. He was just such a cute kitty. Many of you have met him, and know how adorable he was. He used to run around chasing his tail, and could never quite catch it. I am sad, but at least he is not in pain, and that is important, even to a pet.
On a separate note, work has been absolutely INSANE this week, and does not show any signs of abating. I will be SOOOO SOOO SOO glad when this weekend is over. I know that this woman does not mean to be a pain, but oh my goodness!! Also, it is not like it will be better after the wedding is over tomorrow either, since we are doing Shabbos Sheva Brachos at the hotel! I am infinitely glad to have work and health insurance though, so I know I should not complain. I hope that those of you that are celebrating Chanukah are having a great one, and those of you that are not had a Happy Holiday. Anywho....... I am gonna go.

I am SOOOOOO sick of X-Mas music. I cannot wait until Monday, it should all be over then. Anyway, a freilichen (happy) chanukah to all. To those of you that do not celebrate Chanukah then Merry X-Mas or Happy Kwanzaa, Feliz Posada, Happy Diwali, or whatever it is that you celebrate. Make sure to tell your families that you love them.

Tuesday Night's Alright (for bathing)

I know that is a really bad title, but that is what I do on Tuesday. I go to the H's, and help her serve supper (which she in turn feeds me also). Then I give the 2 girls baths. There is nothing cuter than a 3 year old playing in the tub. I walked in the door tonite, and she attacked me. "My Faye, my Faye, my Faye!!!!!!!!!!" She is a posessive little bugger, but I love her, and her sibs as well. I capped off the evening by holding the baby till he fell asleep in my arms. SO CUTE!!!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, work seems to be doing fine. G'nite y'all....

Nisia Tova/Hatzlacha (Safe trip & good luck)

Wanted to take this opportunity to wish the M's a super safe trip as they head HOME!!!! to the Holy Land. You will sorely be missed but IY"H (G-D Willing) I will be there soon to bug you! I can't believe that you guys are really going. I know that the R's will also be going soon-ish, and taking my adorable nephew with them! (which I Guess is fair, since he is their son).... Listening to Naomi Shemer sing Yerushalayim Shel Zahav, and I have tears running down my cheeks. Geez what the heck am I doing here? I have made no real effort at dating (who would want me), I have made no real inroads at Aliyah, I am just taking up space for Pete's sake. I am all of a sudden very down and I have NO idea why. My mood currently blows.... damn I hate mood swings. Anyway, I am going to go crochet some more, since I seem to be semi good at that. Not as good or creative as S, but then I do not need to be. The people that get the gifts for the most part seem to like them. That is good enough for me. I make you something, and you wear or use it for your kid that is the biggest compliment you can give me.
F OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

what is wrong with all men? I just do not understand them. I mean even a little. Poor Sh, she is going through some stuff now, I hope that she can get through it, and that I am helpful in some way.

No Good Title

So I got taken out for brunch, which was nice. Then I went with S to pick up dumbbells (the workout kind, not the male kind), then I came home and cleaned my stove. That was exciting. Did we notice how boring I am? I am debating whether I want to fix the bracelet I made for Brat, or if I want to make a random baby blanket, or make myself a second scarf, or just burn some of the music my friend just gave me, or if I want to do nothing except veg in front of the TV. hmmmmm..... Veg might win........ Sundays are so boring. I could do laundry, except that we are out of laundry soap, and it is not my turn to buy. Whatever (geez, I still do not like that word!) Ravens do not play today so I do not have to worry about them losing, I can wait until tomorrow for that. I guess I am gonna go now.....

MOTZ"SH (After Shabbos)

Wow, turned on computer after Shabbos, went to read various news sites, and discovered that John Spencer died. What a bummer, he was a good actor. I loved him as Leo McGarry on the West Wing, and they are gonna have to do some serious footwork to get around this. He was also on LA Law which was one of my fave things to watch with my mom. Then I looked at the next article, and the caption was "Body Found in Big Birds Nest", now I ask you, could you leave that alone? Turns out a body was found on the property of the guy who plays Big Bird, and he is not a suspect at all, his caretaker is. What a strange wacked out world we live in.
I am trying to figure out if I should go out tonight and be social, or just stay home and talk to friends on IM. I really am the most boring person ever!!!
Anyway I hope everyone has a great rest of weekend. More later.

Od Pa'am (one more time) with feeling!

Is it even worth pointing out that my extremities are COLD! The heat is on, but my fingertips and toes are kinda tinged this color. Which is vaguely disturbing! I am in the midst of my pre-holiday/during the winter funk. I need sun!!!! That is so funny, cause I am not a huge fan of heat, but my skin does not like winter even a little. My hands are cracked and bleeding, which I will get over, and I just feel blah! Ok now that I have given everyone too much information...... Rest assured that I will get over it. I am just in a bad mood. Thank G-D I have all my friends to listen to me bitch. BTW: listening to "Downeaster Alexa" did NOT cheer me up!

My fingertips are blue! My toes are frozen! Before anyone asks YES the freakin heat is on. Ok now we got that out of the way. B, you will always be older than me, even if it is only like 2 months. Anyway, I really have nothing exciting to report. Work is going as well as can be expected when you have a boss who is a tad lacking in people skills....... I can't wait until after the first of the year, things should let up a bit then. I mean do not get me wrong, I am happy to see so many people happily married, but some people have too much time on their hands. I mean seriously, if you are having a wedding for 400 people, do you really expect us to dip chicken cutlets in egg, then bread crumb, then saute them just till brown, the take them out of the pan, pat them off, and bake them??? That is a tad high maintenance, I think. Anwho.........

So I got out of work early today. I am not used to being home in the middle of the day, it was weird. I got to see an old friend, and that was nice. Here is the point tho... I am OLD!!!! It is now, like 10 to 8, and I am all ready to go shluffie (sleep), which is just wrong. I mean i know sleep schedule is all messed up because of the work day yesterday, but still..... OLD OLD OLD. Ya know, it is kind of funny, but it never bothered me before, the birthday thing, I mean it is just a number. For some reason 30 seems to be bothering me. I know I will get over it, but still...... Anyway that is all for now, have a good night y'all and sweet dreams!

well then..

So I am sure that many of you (since there are like 4 of you that read this) have heard that my ex is engaged. I got several differnt responses from people. One wise person said I should feel sorry for her. I guess I kinda do. I hope someone warned her what she was gettting into. Another friend told me that I knew he was not for me yesterday, and I just have to continue to know he is not for me tomorrow........ I know part of it is that he just seemed to skate thru this whole divorce while I dealt with everything, and that part of it is that men need to be with someone they can't be alone, but damnit I am a good person, why doesn't someone want me??? I kinow stupid and over dramatic....... can't help it

Sunday, Boring Sunday

So S came over this morning, and showed off her new Sheitel (wig). Looks good on her, she should wear it in good health. Other than that, I got up, I showered, and I am splitting my time between crocheting scarves for friends, and burning CDs to make room on my hard drive. I think that there is a real chance that I am the MOST BORING person on the face of the planet. Oh well. Still nervous about work tomorrow, but I will take my lumps as they come. I hope that other people are having a productive day, even if I am not. Ravens do not play until 4:15 today, and they are in Denver, so I am thinking loss. I hope that I am wrong, but we will see, If something utterly exciting happens I might write more later, but do not count on it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry that it is a tad belated, but you know that whole Shabbos thing. Anyway, just think no matter how old you get, I will ALWAYS be older (lucky me)
F OUT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I know how to eat crow...... It snowed, I was wrong, I admit it. So hope everyone had a good Shabbos. I am debating whether or not I am gonna go to Wal Mart, I know the excitement of being me. Anyway....... Had a nice lunch with a whole bunch of single chicks today. I do make a great meat pie if I do say so myself. S was there which was nice, she made garlic potatoes, which I love, there were a couple of VERY young girls there, which just made me feel mad old. I cannot believe I am gonna be 30 next month. Geez, someone get out the violin.

It is NOT damnit!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is NOT gonna snow!! Boss informed that if it snows he will come pick me up in his suburban. The problem with that is then I am stuck at work until he wants to leave. The ensuing problem with that is that while he might be frum, he is not the one that makes Shabbos in his house, his wife does! In any case, if y'all could say some Tehillim tomorrow for Tzvi Ya'akov Ben Chaya Golda. He is someone I work with and he is having some surgery tomorrow, so just keep him in mind.
Anywho.... I washed all the milchig dishes, switched to fleishig, made the meat pie for Shabbos lunch, and put in a load of laundry. I am SUPER productive, not.....

So, R, just have faith that everything will end up the way is supposed to, and it is always worth fighting for.

Tuesday night is Bath night

The title refers to the fact that on Tuesday's and Thursday's I go to the H's and get to give baths to their 2 girls. The following is an update to the rest of Sunday. So she lost her ring, I found her ring. Sunday afternoon was just a flurry of activity. I went back to S' house after I found her ring, and she made homemade Chinese food (of course, in China they would just call it food), anyway after that we went to A.C. Moore. I bought lots of yarn, and beads, and I am NOT allowed to buy any more. Hear me, ANY MORE!!!!!! So life here in Baltimore is cold and boring. Ice SUCKS!!!!!!!!!! Anyway, going to go watch the fashion show show. G'nite y'all

Hallo Hallo....

Good morning people. I had a lovely Shabbos with the H's. Menachem Moshe and I are buddies now. After I came home S came over and showed off her new head accessories. She has style, she has panache, she has enough scarves to choke a horse! She beaded a little, I crocheted a little, it was utterly exciting. We had hot chocolate and conversation, it was really nice. Tossed and turned a bit last night, despite the Ambien, woke up really really late. Decided to organize all my bead jewelry, that was fun. I might want to think about looking into a jewelry box, instead of a bag, but whatever. Planning on hanging out with S later, as she uses me as a guinea pig for her cooking. I am all about it. Then we are off to A.C. Moore for their last "Midnight Madnes" sale of the season. That is where most of my yarn, and beads, and stuff comes from. I do not know what I would do if I did not have a hobby. Crocheting and beading and such definitely keep me sane some nights (shut up everyone who just snorted!) Anyway, I plan on watching the RAVENS today before I do any of that stuff. I need to go find some food, so I am outta here, have a great week everyone!
