Just got back from the dentist and my gums are raw. But I like my dentist. I get the same cleaner every time and she does not try to pry your teeth out with the pointy cleany thing like I've experienced in the past. And she heats up a rice pack and puts it under your neck. It is very relaxing. Every time I go I tell myself I got to get one of those rice packs. I had to change my appointment and they told me my regular doctor would not be available at that time. Who the hell cares? Just make sure I get that rice pack!
"Sara, I was talking to our vet who is moving here a few weeks ago about
your kitty and she gave me the name of a pet psychic who a couple of
their patients swear by. Her name is Judy F. and her number is
888-###-####. I thought it might help with his "little problem". Talk
Mom, I am beginning to worry about you.
(my cat was poisioned a year and a half ago and since then everywhere is his litterbox)
Well I don't have to do every single thing I did the last month over. I just have to go through the 1000 item inventory one-by-one and see of there are any duplicate part numbers from different vendors. Any one care to join me?
This morning for the first time I noticed that alot of the trees have buds on them and the weeping willows around here are light green. I was in Virginia yesterday and all their trees are in bloom. So far this spring is so much nicer than last year!
I am researching whether or not the work I did at job #2 (previously job #3) for the past month was a waste and I may have to do it over. I really hope that is not the case.
Today at work
Just about time to go home. My boss and I just got back from an onion ring run, sidetracked by a stop first at Ritter's frozen custard! Open for the summer season! Also in our busy day during lunch we stopped at Filene's Basement to get some socks. I also got sidetracked there with a few items but we don't need to talk about that. Do you think my boss and I are a good influence on eachother?

This is just too good...
Usually I don't post stories about my family on my front page but this is just associated with my family - not an actual family member. Idiot

My grandpa died while I was at the hospital today. Right now the funeral will be on Saturday.
4 days until spring...
My view from work today
My love for Nick and Jessica
I would like to take a moment and share with you my new favorite show. I love Nick and Jessica's show on MTV. I love their TV edited life. I would not mind having their TV edited life. They seem to have a fun time. I laugh my butt off watching this show. Watching beautiful people with beautiful lives having a beautiful time is a lot less stressful than watching the news. I hope that their lives really are as perfect as the tv edited version. Someone should have it easy!
I took a nap til 9pm! I will never get to sleep tonight! I am not tired enough to sleep just tired enough to be useless. I think I will go make myself some much needed CD's. My poor David Gray cd is just about wore out.
"Now Sara, why did you lose my information again?"
I am soooo tired. This is day 4 with little sleep. Exaberated by taking naps because I was on call the past 3 nights. Don't ask me why I thought I should go to job #3 and be forced to answer a phone. I can't answer any questions, I can't take your information, and I can't take your condescending tone. I can however, take a nap. Good night.
If you know me you will probably be surprised to read this post - but most people who know me don't read this. I have gotten many complaints that I don't "share". But I want your thoughts. Your sincere thoughts. If someone breaks their trust with me, they don't get it back. Ever. Basically I may say I forgive that person and I am not angry at them anymore. If that person stays in my life I am just basically waiting for them to slip up, lie to me again, hurt me again. I may intend to keep trying to build a life with them but behind it all is the waiting. And this waiting usually means poison to the relationship. Usually this means I keep things from that person, slowly building a wall, which eventually leads obviously to a loss of intimacy with that person which of course is not a good thing.
I see this as a major character flaw. Life is not perfect, people are not perfect, I can't expect them to be. I am also not perfect. I am attributing this unrealistic expectation to reading too much english literature at too young an age. I thought once I was aware of this flaw I could keep it from happening but that is not the case.
If you have someone in your life who you can completely trust you are very lucky. Someone who you know will not emotionally turn away from you or judge you. I have a couple of friends who I could not speak to for years, call them up and say " I need you," and they would be there, and I hope they feel the same about me. I have one person in this world I do completely trust. I didn't think that I ever would. Don't ask me who it is - because if you need to ask - you are not it.
But if you have any suggestions I am willing to listen. Don't expect this blog to become a sapfest - it will go back to the uninteresting details of my day.
Just sitting here, drinkin' my coffee, reading people's blogs. I found bloglines
yesterday, so now it is easy to see when one has been updated. I really want to put this in movabletype but I hear it may be a tad time consuming at first and I don't have that. And I dont want to pay either. It was nice to wake up in my own bed - I was on call last night. I haven't been able to get to sleep for the past 3 days, so I am glad I have not had to go to work as a zombie. It is snowing here! Winter better not stick around like it did last year. Do you want to know my plans for today?
1000 - go to job #3
1400 - come home, do some laundry, work on computer stuff, organize
1600 - take nap
1800 - get up from nap, find something to eat, computer stuff, study
2000 - work out
2100 - take shower
2200 - be at job #1 until 1000 tomorrow
My exciting life. Have a good day!

Do you HAVE a skin care regime?
I went to the mall to the Prescriptives counter because I had read that they had come out with a product that reduces redness on your face. I have this problem on the sides of my nose and chin. It is the primary reason I will wear makeup besides the occasional zit
. So anything that reduces my need for makeup I am going to get. Plus that fact that job #1 is a 12 hour shift - and no makeup is going to look good that long. So this nice petite salesgirl comes over and I inquire about the product. In a very loud voice she asks "Do you HAVE a skin care regime?" Me:"uhhh yeah..." Her:"Are they drugstore products or department store products?". Me: blank look. I couldn't remember anything. My friend I was with said I should have just started crying. I know you all want to know my skin care regime:
Cetaphil bar - basic face washing
Oil of Olay daily face lotion with SPF 15
ProActiv lotion - has benzoyl peroxide for zits
Also - use Oil of Olay face cloths when I am away from home
Once a week -
Use ProActiv face stuff to exfoliate
Do a mask - either Neutrogena's benzoyl peroxide stuff that can be a mask or face wash, or if my skin is not to dry a clay mask.
I am looking for something to replace the ProActiv stuff - it works pretty well but I dont like that they keep automatically sending you stuff.
There you go.
In honor of spring coming I have changed my header picture and color. I don't have any pictures of spring flowers maybe I will get one soon. I am scheming of ways to escape from this city, well just for a long weekend. I have quite a few options, surprisingly. I am happy to report that I have started out the month of March dutifully following my workout schedule. Off to bed.
