I did something stupid

I think I have something stuck in my ear. I say think because at first I just KNEW that I did, then B got me thinking that maybe I don’t. So now I really don’t know. Sometimes my ear feels different and sometimes it doesn’t. I don’t know if I am imagining it – ya know?

I have no way of knowing for sure. I sure did wish I knew of someone that could just look into my ear for free. I don’t want to go to the ER and then be told that I have to pay hundreds for them to tell me that nothing is in there. Being poor sucks!

I had the most terrible dream last night and I have not been able to shake it all morning. Usually I cannot remember my nightmares. I only find out that I have been having one when I wake up screaming, kicking and hitting. I usually even end up jumping out of bed. Only a select few remain in my memory. The ones that don’t make me wake up screaming. The really bad ones. I have had a couple of unsettling dreams lately involving members of my family and I am starting to get freaked out by it.

Please send scrapping vibes...

Lots of fun scrapping contests going on this past weekend. Lots of “Croptoberfests, if you will.”

I had hoped to participate in a few but my scrapping mojo is a bit low right now. Still, I checked out the challenges and started to look thru my photos. I had great intentions of at least scrapping one page, but I had a problem finding any “fall” type pictures. Nothing too “fall-y” when it comes to the desert. I could not even find any non-fall type pictures that I wanted to work with either. I have not ordered any new photos in quite some time and I am a bit bored with these old photos I have on hand. I really should scrap them but I want new ones to play with. Maybe next month I will be able to order some. I keep saying that but I never seem to have the funds when I want to order some.

So…..I walked into the closet where I store my scrapping stuff and ended up rearranging instead. I moved a few things around and cleaned up the huge mess that some call “ribbon.” My ribbon is now taking up 2 drawers instead of one. I really need to do something about that. I really don’t even use ribbon all that much. All my paint is now just sitting out. I don’t know yet if I want to put it back into a drawer or have it sitting out so I can look at all the pretty colors. I may just rotate what I leave out for inspiration purposes.

Oh and look!!!!! This 365 photo was chosen as someone’s fave. Which is super cool since this is my favorite photo at the moment.

faved again

Lots of stuff happening around here and most of it is not really all that great. :(

The one thing that I have brightening my days at the moment is my 365 project. Someone chose this photo as one of their faves and I know it is silly but it sure does make me giddy that someone likes my photo enough to choose it as a favorite. :)

I've been faved!

I started the 365 challenge for me. My pictures are not fancy or super-involved – they are just me – for me. Just as with my blog, I get super excited when I get comments on my self-portraits. I have even gotten some new contacts. Contacts that are people I don’t know. I got an even nicer surprise the other day. Someone added these 2 pictures to their favorites. I guess someone really likes my hair. Better than my foot, I suppose. :)

it's been weird

It has been a weird sort of week. I think I am finally over being sick. I am SO happy about that. I missed class on Tuesday so I had to come in to class toay, on Thursday. I am so used to having this as my day off so it is weird being here today. I was already confused as to what day it was - so now I am REALLY confused. I have just been really out of it.

I never shared the layout I did for the Scrappay Divas challenge from September. It was the challenge to color on your page. This is what I came up with:

Here is a close-up of the coloring since you really cannot see it in the scan:

Love Today

Nothing is better than some Mika/Scissor Sisters action early in the morning. You can’t go wrong when a song has laser beam sounds in it. LOL! It was just what I needed to get myself started this morning. Well that and the coffee and bagel action I had for breakfast. So now I am ready for a full day of learning. Actually, I am ready to dance in the car again but I will save that for the drive home.

They gave out awards again yesterday (my day off). I got the award for fastest typist in September ~ 75wpm. That is 2 months in a row that I got this award. I don’t remember last month’s (August) speed so I need to check and see if I improved any from the previous month. I do know that I already have hit over 80wpm for October.

Darn! I just got back a med terms test and I did well on the test portion but noticed the teacher had not graded the spelling portion. Now I am sorry I mentioned it to her. I did not do well on the spelling on this test at all. I am embarrassed at how bad I did. I hate when I miss a word by just one letter. Darn that choledocholithiasis! At least I don’t have to retake the test.

We bought a lamp.

Since today was B’s last day of vacation and we are both feeling a bit better (although I am still pretty stuffy) we decided we had better go out for our anniversary date. Only a week late but it still counts, right? We didn’t make it to the movies but we did have a nice early dinner. B got his king crab legs and that is all that matters. LOL! He really does love those king crab legs and he has me hooked on them as well. They were yummy but I think we had just a bit too much salt today. Poor guy has to go back to work tomorrow and I know he is not looking forward to it. Good thing I only have class for a few hours tomorrow. It will be nice to get home early.

After dinner, we stopped by Target. We went in for tissues and of course came out with much more. While wandering around the store, we found a lamp we had looked at before on sale for $13.12 down from $52.49. Talk about a deal! It is a large lamp, which is what we had wanted, so I am happy. It looks pretty good in the living room too.

Now if only I could breathe so I could get myself to sleep tonight. I get so jealous watching the cats sleep that I always have to go and wake them up!

9 6 3 = YUCK!

I promised to share a picture of how small the type is on my 10-key exercises. Well here is the best I could do. For someone who wears glasses (and even those who don't), it is WAY too small. My hand is so tired. My poor ring finger has been forced to do things that no ring finger should ever be made to do. Ouch! I don’t think it has ever moved so much and I took piano for 13-years. I have not even attempted my 10-key exercises today. I am having enough trouble trying to get a good timed typing done.

Today is another stuffy day. I can handle being sick. The one thing that bothers me the most is being stuffed up. I hate not being able to breathe. I always have a fear that I am going to suffocate. Nothing seems to work either. I am looking forward to not having school tomorrow.

How can it be October?

Today my cold has hit me full force. Very stuffy around these parts. I sure do hope it does not last long. I don't think I have ever sneezed so much in my life. B is trying to avoid me saying that he does not want me to get him sick. HELLO?!?!? He was the one that got me sick in the first place. I told him that giving me his cold was the sweetest anniversary present ever! Actually he got me Knocked Up for our anniversary (the movie that is). LOL!

I am working on my 10-key today. I know how to type 10-key by touch, but now I have to learn how to do it using the correct fingers. LOL! My fingers are getting tired. It doesn't help that the type on the exercises is so small. I really do need to take a picture and share.

September is over (how did that happen?) and I finally updated all of my August 365 shots. I have a dream of not being a month behind when it comes to posting my pictures. I don't even know what day I am on since I am so behind. It helps in a way though. I see the photo a month later and if it is a bad one, it no longer bothers me. ;)

Here is a funny for ya! See the foot photo from August 1st? Can you believe that is my most viewed photo ever on Flickr? Unbelievable!

So here is what I looked like during the month of August. August is when I started school so the pictures should at least be a bit more appealing than when it was me just dragging myself out of bed. LOL!

This past weekend was B's and my 10th anniversary. I cannot believe it has been 10-years ~ it has only felt like 5 minutes. 5 minutes under water!!! LOL! (now that funny is courtesy of my mom).

We had plans to go out and do something but B was sick so we just stayed home. Now, B is feeling better and I am the one that is sick! He has the week off of work and I have to go back to class. It is not just allergies either. I HATE being sick. It has been a LONG time since I have had a cold. I just hope it is over quickly since I cannot miss any days at school. What makes me feel even worse is that I don't even have the car in case I want to go home early. B is on vacation so he dropped me off this morning.

I guess I am just in a foul mood all around. I did not wake up on the good side of the bed this morning.

...today's post brought to you by the letter "d" as in duodenum!
