Last monday, I was sick as a dog all morning. YAY!

saturday, Koda dropped my e-reader. nothing appeared to be wrong with it, but now it won't take a charge. it doesn't even pick up that the charger has been plugged in. dunno if it was cause of the dropping or what:\

sunday, found out my friend Danny's younger brother is missing. their mother had a health scare, and he took idea where is:\

[ profile] lynn_viehl is mostly done. the layout, anyway. still gotta make the mod posts, tags, and the profile, but yeah...

need to do some work on klove too:\ GAH.

on the plus side though, I'm almost to 100~, have a young rich guy hitting on me on facebook, we're supposed to get some snow today (not sticking though:\), and Kristy is going to try and give me the monday after christmas off:D (basically, she's gonna stay down at the house unless Brian NEEDS her to come to the office. *happy sigh*)

also, she's gonna get me a heater for my room~ she found a pretty good one for 25$. I told her not to worry too much about it though, cause honestly, even when it's been getting down into the 30's, I've been kicking off my top blanket in my sleep, lol. I LOVE sleeping in the cold, so I'm good~ it's just frustrating when I'm trying to TYPE in the cold. which is why I'm stopping typing...NOW:P
angel_9_lives: (Default)

everything that I've done, I've done it for you

Kristy has...once again...pissed me off. at least this time, I'm not alone. even sis was like ", it's not just you. she was in the wrong here.", and usually takes Kristy's side on everything:\

fuck this. no more favors. )

on the plus side, we're FINALLY getting rain here! annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd, I found Venus about a week or two ago:D well, Venus or Mars, but I think it was Venus cause of the size and color:P

I've also done my splurge for the month :S

Tamora Pierce - Mastiff (Beka Cooper series; book 3)
Rick Riordan - Son of Neptune (Percy Jackson series~)
Lynn Viehl - Nightshine (Kyndred series)

I have them all shipping together, so I don't think I'll have to pay for them all until the beginning of November~

hair sticks (cherry blossom, red phoenix & black cat/fortune)

Nathan likes to chew on my hair sticks, so I am down to ONE x_x these sets were only a dollar-something, so I snatched them up, lol. I LOVE the cherry blossom ones *_*

hjfkjs, it's raining *_* and 5:30am:X goodnight morning~:D

*dances off*
angel_9_lives: (Default)
another sucky past couple days (including the tsunami, but I've heard from everyone I know over there, so I'm trying to put that against the suckass stuff:P), something good though (in a MUAHHAHAHAHHA way):

turns out sis & her hubby was never actually fired.

they found out a couple days ago when Dave was talking to Jimmy...he said something about "well, when we were fired.." and Jimmy told him "wait, what? you were never fired..."

which makes a LOT more sense than what HAD been going on. Jimmy does NOT answer the call from someone he's fired, and he answered the phone when Dave called him. He also does NOT send over faxes saying "We were glad to have you while we wishes in your future endeavors!" (paraphrased).

so yeah. we think that what happened is Carol was trying to make it look like they walked out on Jimmy, cause SHE's the one that came to the store to tell them the news, and while she was there, she took a phone call from Michelle (in Jimmy's office...also, the one that I was considering being a surrogate mom for), and told her "it's 9:45 and he's not here..."

Dave was right there next to her, but didn't know who she was talking to, so he thought she was saying that JIMMY wasn't there yet.

so yeah. we knew that Carol hates sis anyway, and that she wanted the store her and Dave were running, but we didn't realize just how bad until the other day.

from what we understand now, Jimmy had already planned on moving sis and fam to this other store...that's probably what he meant when Dave asked him "how can you do this?" and Jimmy said "well, you've been there a while, I figure you've gotten a little stagnant, so it was time to move on..."

anyway...yeah, you can bet we're all not happy with that woman.

and Kristy and I have been having some hellacious blow ups lately. she was actually SCREAMING at me the other day...if it hadn't been for the kids, I would've decked her. I was PISSED. even BRIAN said something to her about all the yelling she's done lately =O

quite interesting. was also interesting when Koda told me today "mommy say it not matter what you say", and then "You not yell at me! I yell at you, you not yell at me!" (which is paraphrasing what Kristy was screaming).

anyway...we talked earlier today. cleared some things up. we're gonna try something new to get along, heh. hopefully it works. if not, at least...


yup, that's right...we finally got the room done:D the walls are up, anyway, lol. I'm actually typing this up IN my room:D

it's not painted, and there flooring is just the cement garage floor, but next month I'll pay buy some paint and get to making this place look livable~

I'll try to remember to take some before and after pics, but no promises:P

anddddddd, on that's a meme and then: GOODNIGHT:D

alphabet meme )
angel_9_lives: (Default)
lol, okay, so only one pic came out good enough for me to share:

piccy piccy~ )

it was kinda fun though~ I missed this, but apparently I scared some people, muahahha. Kristy and Brian said they saw a bunch of kids run away or back up when they saw me. One group even crossed the road to avoid me, lmao.

we took a good number of pics, but the way the gown/sheet kept falling, it made it look like I had a pillow under it. -_-* I'm no skinny-minny, but this was just ridiculous.

everyone ADORED Koda. She went as Cinderella, and Kristy managed to get her hair to even do the roll thing right...people were giving her two big handfuls of candy when they saw her, lolol.

dunno yet if Kristy will let me put pics of her and Brian up, but they looked good too. (her = Kristy, not Koda...Koda is 100% off limits~)

*taps foot* hmph, nothing else to say dammit. but anyway. yeah, it was fun~ hot, but fun, lol.
angel_9_lives: (Default)
*flails and squirms a lil*

probably not much cause for it, but ah well...


The big 2-0, lol. still dunno if he's going to Houston with me though:\

good and bad:

Kristy is gonna let me have my sundays again. I get to sleep as late as I want, but at midnight on sunday, I have to give her my keyboard and mouse, so she'll know I'm not staying up all night playing on the computer. I'm okay with that, sooo~

the other night, Brian was talking to me, and he MEANT to say "Kristy told me you...", but he said MY name instead. Kristy was right behind him. Yeah, he got smacked.

then tonight, Koda started to call her mommy my name. she's...not happy:\ obviously.

last night, we were looking at pics from when they brought Nathan home from the hospital, and Kristy said she just wished he knew his mommy. I told her he DOES know her...he always calls her "mama", and he looks at her when he says it. he also only gives his biggest smiles to her and to Koda. I get smiles of course, and I get laughs sometimes, but it's mama that gets the big big smiles.

she says she just needs a couple days alone with the kids, but when I pointed out that I'll be gone for a couple days in november, and maybe that will help, she says "no...he's probably going to go crazy while you're gone."


I feel guilty, not just cause of her, but Nathan too...cause, I mean, I love the kids, but I don't think of them as mine...not even Nathan who I HAVE pretty much raised so far. I hate that he's apparently looking to me as a "mommy", but I look at him like a nephew or a brother...:S

*sighs* I dunno. this really kinda sucks:\
angel_9_lives: (Default)
Brian, Kristy and I all agree...we're in love with an inanimate object.

what is it, you ask? a baby gate.

yes, you read that right. a baby gate.

Koda figured out how to open the old one we had, and she'd come running out of her room about 20 times a night for stupid shit, stalling bedtime as much as she could, and THEN, would get up at 6:30am (almost on the dot), and go running into mommy & daddy's room to JUMP in bed with them.

and of course, she's 4, so she's a wiggle worm, and would twist and turn and kick her parents until they finally chase her back to her own room with a spanking.

THIS gate is too tall for her to climb over, AND...apparently hard to figure out, lol. you just push these two buttons at the same time and push down, but Koda hasn't figured it out yet, and it's been 4 hours, muahahahhaha.

we haven't had to chase her back to her room even ONCE yet *_* she is SEVERELY not happy.

Brian and I both agree we would almost have sex with this gate, lmao. Kristy says that's kinda scary, but then Koda failed to open the gate again and she broke out into the "omg-happy-happy-joygasm-joygasm" dance XD

*happy sigh*

on the bad note...talked to sis earlier, and bil's older bro Phil (who I also consider a brother/brother-in-law) has been in a car accident. we don't know HOW the accident happened, but he cracked/shattered one of his eye sockets in two different places, and had to have 23 stitches to close it up, and they still don't know yet if he's gonna need surgery or not.

couple bad things here about that, actually...

no one told his mother. when sis called her earlier to see if Mrs. J knew anything about how he was, she was completely in the dark. she asked sis how SHE knew about it...Phil's wife posted it on facebook.

didn't bother calling the man's mother, or any other family members. and then the woman was bitching about he wrecked "another fucking car", and how stupid he/it was, etc etc.

it's husband was just in a car wreck, and you're gonna bitch about the CAR?! how about being glad that the man is ALIVE, you idiot!


I mean, okay, yeah 6 cars in 4 years IS more than a bit much, but husband's life vs. car...hmmm, let me think here.

*shakes head*

took my blood pressure at walmart...systolic (sp?) was normal, but the diastolic (sp again) was high...not sure what that means:S also, not sure how accurate it was cause the cuff thingy pinched my arm, so I was wiggling...a LOT.

I need to make a mental note to call someone about that though:\ in the meantime, I'm staying on my aspirin regime. dad had high bp + blood clots (that's how he died...blood clot to the lung...what I'm scared of happening to me:S), and mom, I THINK, has low bp. so bad shit on both sides:\

at least mom's diabetes is getting better.

OH, and the dizzy spells she was having? the dr said she had water on the ear, so she's on meds now to fix it up:)

weather has been hell. literally.

today the expected index was 109, with some places reaching 112.

for those of you using celcius:
109 = 42.78
112 = 44.44

ugh. and no rain in sight either:( *sighs*

.....and now: bed time. x_x
angel_9_lives: (Default)
...I love Kristy.

she got me playing rockband with her and Brian, and I didn't realize how late it was getting.

once it was past midnight, she made sure I knew what time it was, and then they started getting ready for bed...she's been dragging ass since about 7, so I think she did it to keep me distracted ^_^;;

just gotta make it 24 hours now, and then I can be happy that I was just being paranoid.

until NEXT June 24th:(

angel_9_lives: (Default)
okay, so a major dampener on the whole moving thing.

now we don't know how close the sell is to being made. it's possible it won't happen at all...which, now, I'm hoping for.

and here's where the dampener is:

depending on where we go, Kristy says I might have to find my cats a new home.

I told her that isn't an option. I've fought too long for them to give up now. I told her I will find another job to work after hours if I have to so I can pay for my own apartment. I'll be dead on my feet by the time I get home, but I will do what I have to.

I already lost Shizuka...I didn't have a choice there. his time with me came to an end, and that's that. I am NOT going to lose these two due to something that I CAN control.

I would be okay with giving Spiky to my sister, cause I know she loves him, and he adores her, but it'd be like pulling hen's teeth to get Dave to agree to it.

*sighs* I guess we'll see.
angel_9_lives: (Default)
ok, so a friend's post just reminded me about this...

come august or september, Koda will be starting pre-k. and it's not one of those namby-pamby (however you spell it) 2 hour a day things either. She will be gone from whatever time in the morning until like 2 or 3pm two days a week~

the good part about that is that I get a break from the demon child, lol. I'll miss her, but I won't miss the noise x_x

the bad part is that in order to afford this, Kristy's gonna have to cut my pay a lil. no idea how much, but she stressed the "ONLY a lil cut" over and over, so I'm guessing she's already going in her head how to arrange things so I lose as lil as possible, lol.

I'm...actually pretty damn okay with the whole thing XD;; I'd be happy to take 300 a month if it means I get a two day break from that nuthouse x_X now, I'm not gonna tell Kristy that, of course, cause I'd like to keep as close to the current amount as possible, but yeah^_^;;;

next year, when Koda starts actual school, Kristy's gonna try and get Nathan in some kind of preschool too, so I might have to take another cut then too, but we're hoping not. it depends on if we get a raise between now and then~

in the meantime, I HAVE MONDAY OFF:D:D:D far, anyway, lol. it's memorial day, so postal will be closed, and Kristy already plans on telling Brian to stay home with the kids~ technically, they could BOTH take the day off since Jimmy said they could close down completely for the day, but Kristy knows Brian won't do it. (I think he would...he needs a break as much as the rest of us and he knows it:P )

if Brian decides to be an assmunch and go in anyway, Kristy might come home instead. She WANTS to go in the office ALONE, but...yeah. no idea. All I know for sure is that Kristy said I have the day off, and that ONE of them will be down here, so we'll see~

now I'm off. I'm feeling a LOT better, but still anti-social. and I'm in love with the new co-mods on klove. they're just...♥. an insane amount of ♥.
angel_9_lives: (Default)
eeps...forgot to update after I got the video card^_^;;

ok,, obviously, I got the videocard, and it's's working quite well, actually:D



so yeah, besides taking care of [ profile] kattunlove's header contest, I've been falling back in love with windows xp and sims3^_^;;

and coughing my lungs up.

yeah, I'm still sick. Koda is better, though she's coughing now too, and Nathan...well, Kristy says he's just mimicking me, but he has a runny nose too, so I think he's caught what I have, which isn't surprising since I'm the one that takes care of him the most.

oh oh oh! HE SAID HIS FIRST WORD:D he looked right at Kristy and said "mama" ^_^v

I thought babies didn't start talking til later, but apparently they might learn a word or two early, it's just that they won't be able to communicate more...intelligently until later. so says Kristy anyway.

I say he's already had his second word, but Kristy says no. You tell me:

I walked into the kids' room to get him out of the crib and said "hello peanut butt! hi~!" and he got this big grin and kicked his legs and said "Hi!"

since then, I've said different things to him in the morning, like "good morning" or "rise and shine", etc etc, but he only does his "hi!" when I say "hello" or "hi".

Kristy says it's just a sound, but technically, so is everything we say. The only difference is that we are able to tell what the sounds MEAN and use them in the right way. if he understands the sound enough to know when to say it, then shouldn't it count?


Kristy's on my shit list anyway. she flat out accused me of paying more attention to my computer than I do the kids. the day she said it, she said I had been sending her messages all day instead of paying attention to the kids.

I messaged her a grand total of 4 times.

lucky I havent kicked her ass yet. )

so yeah. I haven't had my lil discussion with her about that lovely morsel yet. I'm waiting til my throat is healed up, because when we DO have that discussion, I want to be able to deliver my opinion on what happened with quite a bit of volume.

........long entry was long, but I needed to get that out. -_-* you may now return to your regularly scheduled fangirling/boying of whatever you fangirl/boi.
angel_9_lives: (Default)
bro in law is apparently trying to get in my good graces? lol, I told him I needed an insanely cheap video card, and that I would give him my credit card number so he could order it for me, but he said he'll see what he can find and pay for it, then I can just pay sis back the next time I see her.

on the downside, everyone here is sick.

Kristy's BEEN sick, and Koda suddenly spiked a 104 degree temperature saturday night. she ended up throwing up on Kristy x_x. They almost took her to the ER, but they got it down to 102 with medicine and cool rags.

now her temp is going back and forth between 100 & 101. :( Brian and I are both running a low grade fever, and Kristy and I are coughing our lungs out >.<

...this is the longest the comp has stayed on today...*waiting for the melt down*

angel_9_lives: (Default)
...I'm amused.

I forget if I mentioned about the guys from the fire safety department (or whatever-rf they are) that came by the place to check out our smoke detectors/sprinklers, but um...yeah.

Kristy came down to tell me that a guy would be coming down to the apartment to check the detectors, and then pretty much went into a full description of him. this color hair, this color eyes, this color shirt and pants, style of pants, has a russian-ish accent, etc etfc.

halfway through, I'm like "okay, so basically...don't kill him when he comes to the door?"
"well...ask who he is and who's he with, and if it's that guy...yeah, don't kill him."

10-15mins later, Brian comes down to tell me that they're gonna be setting off the fire alarms in the house so they can test them...and that the guy is gonna be coming the house.

me: "...okay...Kristy already told me..."
him: "well, she told me to remind you, so.."
me: *sweatdrops*

10-15mins later, the alarms go off, and I'm making sure the kids are okay (good lord those things are loud), and Brian comes back...AGAIN.

Brian: "hey, he's coming here"
me: "..." (um, yeah...I KNOW...)
*watches Brian walk through the house to his room*
*notices that he didn't shut the door behind him*
*peeks outside*
man matching Kristy's description is standing about 5-10 feet away looking kinda like a mix between:

he came over once I smiled at him and made a comment about the alarms being loud. looked outside again, and there's another guy standing between the house and Brian's truck, had the same uniform as the other guy, so I nodded to him, and it was like that was what he was waiting for. he came over closer to the house, but still wouldn't go in.

I was amused cause all I could think was ", did Kristy tell them I'd kill them if they sneezed wrong or something?"

well, I finally asked her tonight if she had warned them about me or something, and she said ", well..yeah."

me: "what'd you tell them??"
her: "well, when they told me they had to go into the house, I told them okay, but don't try to just walk into the house. make sure you knock. they kinda gave me a funny look, so I told them 'I love my babysitter. she takes care of my kids. and she will stake you. so when you go down there, knock. tell her your names. tell her who you are. tell her who you are with. tell her exactly what you are going to be doing, do it, and then go. she WILL stake you. she carries a sharp object on her at all times. she uses one to hold her hair up. and she will stake you with it. I love my babysitter.'"
me: *dies*
her: you should've seen him...his eyes got real big like "oh shit". when I told him to tell you who he was and who he's with, he nodded so hard I was thinking he'd come down here and try to give you his whole damn life story.
me: *tells her what happened*
her: *snickers* I dunno what you did then, cause when he came back up to the office, he gave me a look like "she's fucking CRAZY, I'm not doing that shit again!"

so yeah, = amused.
angel_9_lives: (Default)
not even back a full 48 hours now, and I'm already ready to hurt somebody.

I already mentioned that Kristy threw out the mattress I was using and bought a futon instead, but what I DIDN'T mention is how it sounds like she expects ME to pay for something I don't even LIKE.

now, granted she said "I bought you something...well it WAS gonna be gift/surprise, but that was before I found out I had to spend more money." but it still sounds like she's expecting me to pay for the bed since she had to spend a whole whoppin' $30 extra. Unless she's talking about having to pay for the cab ride completely, which is a lil different, cause she only expects me to go half and half on that anyway.

so that was straw 1

straw 2:
Kristy came down to the house to use the bathroom, and she started having a hissy fit, saying that the house is "fucking nasty".


turns out that her idea of "fucking nasty" for the day was my suitcase, and my blankets that I had kept out to use during quiet time. everything was mostly neat except for a FEW things I had taken out to go through, and the clothes that needed to be washed.

I could understand her not liking the clothes to be a pile on the floor waiting to be washed, but the washer and dryer were BOTH running at the time, so I just put the clothes in a pile where no one would have to step over/go around them. it wasn't spread out all over hell and creation, it was in ONE spot.


straw 3:

I had my notebooks, lil fill-it-in magazine, and some travel type stuff from LA sitting in a pile by the end of the futon so I could type up what I had wrote on the plane and store the vacation stuff separately.

SOMEONE was being a brat and spread them all over the place, and having a fit, so she got put in her room for time out.

Kristy came home and...of course..bitches. not just about the papers/notebooks though.

oh no, nope. she had to move onto the stuff on my computer desk (which THEY put there while I was gone) and the stuff on top of my lil cabinet thing (which, again, THEY PUT THERE).

Now, granted, she started out nice:
"Please clean that up before I do."

it was after that that started pissing me off.

Koda has been an unholy brat to me since I got back. Typical kid, I went away and she's mad at me for it, so she's "punishing" me, pretty much.

but with Koda being a brat, and the fact that I haven't gotten back into ANY kind of sleep schedule since I got home (between monday night, tuesday night, and last night, I think I managed to sleep 12-13 hours, and the majority of that number comes from monday night cause Jac let me sleep in until maybe 5 minutes before Bianca got to the hotel), by the time Kristy gets home and I can clean without munchkin in my way, I'm ready to pass out for a week.

SHE may be used to being a full time mom and having to deal with Koda acting like a bitch on pms, but I am NOT. I've been here for less than a year, she's been a mom for almost 4 years. gimme a fucking break, for crying out loud, I mean SERIOUSLY?! not even home a full two days and you're gonna give this shit to me NOW?

angel_9_lives: (Default)
today...was surprisingly good.

Kristy woke me up at like 7:30am, I think, but she woke me up to tell me to let Koda and Nathan sleep in as late as they could.

usually, I get woke up at like 8:30, and Koda would already have her shower and breakfast, and Nathan would've been fed already. today, they didn't even wake up until 9:30. I had to give Koda her shower and make breakfast for her, but it was worth it to sleep in for an extra hour, lol.

actually got a nap during quiet time today, and Nathan didn't give me a stinky diaper. so SCORE and DOUBLE SCORE!

a couple days ago, I asked Dave to help me find a good TB harddrive for my compy since mine is still screwing up, and he found a 1TB for 79.99. then today, he sent me a link for a 1.5TB for 89.99:D AND he has a windows XP disk so I can use that instead of this crappy windows 7 >.< I HATE this stupid thing x_x it won't let me set up my quick launch bar, and UGH, that bugs me.

...petty, I know, but I don't care, so HMPH!

got myself two books, and salad stuff~, and I forget what else, lol. but I got stuff, so yeah.

ah, AND...I love my community members...the dbsg comm was invited to join up with other dbsk fangroups/sites/etc for a charity project, and then today, there's been a bunch of people at kattunlove making posts about fundraising for Haiti.

I know I'm the bitch!mod and all that, but dammit, I'm proud of these people. I think I can take off the bitch!hat long enough to say that:P

*happy hums* ah well. off to bed~ tomorrow is office day:P
angel_9_lives: (Default)
so long in between actual posts, I know, but the whole voice posting idea kinda got ganked when Nathan was born, heh.

rough update:

Nathan was born 3 weeks early.
DOB: November 13th, 2009
Weight: 5lbs 14 oz

I forget length, and what time, but I know it was after 5:30am. They made her wait cause Kristy had just gotten done eating dinner.

Poor Koda...she didn't understand why mommy wasn't coming home from work when daddy did. She's adjusted though. She LOVES her lil brother, it's so cute. She wants to hold him and feed him and burp him, etc etc.

Kristy was just about crying over how Koda didn't even hesitate to start loving on him. She was worried that, like most kids, Koda would get jealous of Nate getting all the attention. Instead, we just about have to keep her away from the poor baby, lol.

um, what came to visit. She's been here for almost 3 weeks, but she spent most of it as sis' house.

The one week she was here, she read through my book so far and...loved it. Strangely enough.

she's christian-christian (as I've mentioned before, lol), and I use language that she doesn't approve of, as well as the book itself being based off the theory that the bible isn't quite right, but...yeah, I was pleasantly surprised.

sis even heard her talking to her boyfriend and said that "it's almost impossible to write a book these days without using bad language, but the book is so good, you don't really think about the words being used! the dialogue and the characters are sooo well done.." etc etc. and mom has also apparently told one of my cousins that she loves it and thinks that it would easily rival Twilight and Harry Potter.

I'm...not sure what to think, heh. it's good to know I have her support/fandom, but at the same time Harry Potter? Twilight? (and how-tf did MY mother get into TWILIGHT, of all things?? though she says she only saw the first movie, and that's what she liked, but still...)

my brother and his wife came down from Oklahoma tonight, too. They're here to pick mom up and take her back home, but while they were here, we had a mini photofest for mom. She had us "girls" in matching shirts - which wasn't NEARLY as bad as I thought it would be...she actually picked a GOOD shirt! not one of those fluffy santa things *_* - and we took pics at IHOP, lol.

my finally taking steps to get closer, so I'm kinda happy with him. I like his wife, though I only got to meet her twice. She puts up with his bullshit, so she's golden XD

hmph, working on a layout for apop_newlooks (on livejournal). not much else to update on anyway:S
angel_9_lives: (Default)
they won't take the baby until 4 or 5am cause Kristy had just ate something before her water broke >.<

angel_9_lives: (Default)
okay, trying not to spazz too much, but Kristy left about an hour ago for the hospital.

She wasn't supposed to have her baby until the 24th, but her water broke tonight, sooo...

it's kinda funny, and I am SO glad I posted on twitter the way I did. sis and I both had been having dreams about Kristy going into labor early, and then today I just...I was in the living room, and I got the nastiest cleaning fit. I went in the kitchen and just...attacked it with a sponge XD;;

--update: Kristy just called. she didn't say whether or not they told her she's in actual labor, but they're gonna go ahead and take him tonight.


I'm so excited:D

on another note, I was telling mom what was going on, and then the convo turned into about her love life. she has herself a boi-toi, kinda, and wanted to know what I thought of it. so NOT a convo to be had at a time like this XD
