Anyone want to read

anyone want to help me put them back.

I love to read.   I spend a lot on books   I love books, the smell, the feeling of opening a new book and re-reading a favorite, but I only have so much room, so I requested a kindle for my birthday.


Ok .

So it turns out the the wiring I need was not done on Monday  The cable company puts the appt in on Monday and someone calls me by Wednesday to schedule it.   Of course today is Wednesday with no call so I will call them tomorrow.   I am on my sister’s computer now.  If anyone wants to chat, text me from Facebook.   I miss you all very much.   Yes, you most of all.


I have nothing to write about.

Yesterday I cleaned up my garage and straightened a bunch of stuff up.

I have a dresser in my garage that i want to get rid off.   Then I want to get a shelving unit to use for extra storage – like pantry stuff – mainly paper products and bulk shopping things.

then I watched Cloverfield.

Here’s the dialogue

Rob good luck in Japan –

Rob good luck in Japan

Anyone want to do a testimonial for Rob



And that is it.   They repeat that in different levels of screaming for 1.5 hours.   I liked it though –  the monster was creepy and I adore JJ Abrams.

It’s back to work today.   I woke up uber early because I had to strip the beds and collect trash and pick up good will off the floor and just get everything in order for the cleaners.

I want to go back to the gym.   My problem is that I don’t know what I can do besides treadmill.   I’m still sore in my arm and don’t want to over do it-   I have to remember to ask my ortho next time I go.

I am going for a massage the end of July with Robin and J for Robin’s birthday.   It will be fun.   We are going to Hershey Pa.    I would like to get a chocolate massage (turns out – not real chocolate, but chocolate scented oil’s are used) but since I have such bad allergies to certain things – like scented oil’s I don’t know if I should get that or not.   I will see.


I have a toilet. A brand new shiny toilet that doesn’t have a hole where it’s not supposed to.

otherwise, my life is boring.

and just in case anyone needs to know – 11 days until 1o.21.

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned

1.   I am some issues w. my right arm.   I have full range of motion (can lift my arm above my head) in the morning, but by 9 or so I can barely lift it at all.    I clean my house and after doing one room, I have to stop since I can’t move my arm at all.

2.  I am really close to my family.

That being said….my parents and sister got me a monthly present.    A cleaning service.   My parents because they love me and while I will clean every day and week, I can’t do heavy duty cleaning.    My sister because of how much I help w/ the princess.

So they are coming today.  I am very excited.   Now I have to finish straightening up for the cleaning.

Random house stuff before 8 am

I just had something replaced connected to my water heater. I don’t know what but the guy had an ID card, so I let him in. He went into my water closet (oooh dirty) under the stairs (oooooh dirtier) and turned my water on and off and did something and now it’s done.

I am waiting for the contractor to come. He is going to be here around 9:30 I hope and I will have new kitchen counters today. GO ME.

The wall people are coming also They are supposed to fix some holes – nailpops – in the wall. But if they ain’t here early, oh effin well. Luckily I don’t have many and the one or two I know of – I fixed. When I paint the walls they won’t be noticable.

I hung some pictures the other day. I took pictures They are nice. I meant to hang the one above the couch on the other wall but I like the way it looks. Maybe with some sconces on each side…or when I get around to hanging what I meant to hang there I will move that.

I sent the pictures from my phone to my email…eventually they will make it and I will post them.

A long day – gets better

So what suck about my job – aside from management- is that if you take a day off you have to work 12 hour days for 2 days to make it up.    I took off 2 days so I have to work 6am – 6pm for the rest of the week to catch up.

I got in to work today at 5:40 am and left at 5:55 pm and went to the gym   I was tired and in a pissy mood, but if I went home – I would have sat and ate…so pilates it was.

I got home at 7:45 is – maybe even 8pm ish.   I opened my garage and finished cleaning it up.   I watered my lawn –  I did – the hose worked, which if it worked a few weeks ago – I wouldn’t have had the whole problem….but

I pulled into my garage today.   And tomorrow, when I go to work, I get to pull out of the garage and not have dew on my car that takes forever and ever to clean off and not fog up my windows….that makes me happy.


So my office is a little cold….and a lot of people have fish….this is what happens when you are overworked, tired and cold…it’s between, S me and J.    S started it.

S:    Ok, it is so cold in here I think we need fish cozies.

J:  Aww.  Rachel’s mother knits.

Me: I dare you to call my mom and ask her to make fish cozies.

J:  I bet if I did, she’d do it.

Me:  I bet if you did – she would tell me I can’t be friends with you.

J:  No she wouldn’t.  I’m as crazy as the rest of you.

Me:  No – because no one in my family would want a fish cozy.   A tea cozy maybe but not a fish cozy.  Unless the fish was in the disposal

J:  Ok.  We’ll call them tea cozies then.  And I’m ignoring that last sentence.

Me:  I sorta thought you meant a cozy for the fish – not the bowl.

J:  If it was for the fish, it would be called a sweater.

Me:  A little fish sweater.   It couldn’t be made of wool – it would get icky in water

J:  And cotton gets all stretchy and smelly when it’s wet

Me:  So probably a fish sweater – not a good idea

J: Maybe an insulated rubber wet suit

Me: I am not putting a wet suit on a fish
You said rubber

S:  I think M’s idea of a warming lamp is probably more practical.

(now, there is a really funny picture of a fish that S drew- but I can’t get it on here –  trust me-  it’s bizarre)

There was another email that S & I were doing – and S & J were doing that was just as bizarre…..we make our own fun so we don’t go postal at our job…except since we don’t work for the post office – it’s not postal as much as –  well, for those of you who know where I work… know what it is.
