very quick, short update. I know I have a whole assload of stuff to update on, but right now, the big thing is that I/we will most likely be moving at the end of the month~

the man we work for (J) is selling some of his stores, including the one we're at. The buyer has been coming around checking out everything before the sale is final, and they're considering making us an offer to stay with them, but with the way the guys were treating Brian & Kristy, we're most likely going to tell them to shove it up their ass.

luckily, J has already told us that if we don't want to go to the new company, he will MAKE room for us at one of his other stores. right now, the other store he's offered to move us to is actually the one that I lived at before I started working for Brian and Kristy. the place is really nice, but, as with most of the properties J owns, it's only a two bedroom...and it doesn't have a garage attached, so we're having to scramble to figure out what we're gonna do with my room/stuff.

Kristy has a tentative plan in place, but it requires finding a home for one of my cats. Sis is supposed to talk to her hubby about taking the cat that loves her so much, and if she can't convince him to let her have him, she knows someone else who should be able to find a good home. *sighs*

I don't want to give away either of them, but not much choice:\

anyway. Koda graduates from kindergarten at the end of this month, and if we move, it'll probably be around that same time. it depends on if/when the sale goes through.

for the rest of life updates...I'm thinking I'm gonna just have to make a voice post or something. I don't do video blogs/posts, so meh.

sorry to everyone I haven't really been keeping up with...I've been in a weird mood/phase. I haven't signed in on msn in forever...I'm actually not even sure if I redownloaded it after I have to wipe my comp:S I pretty much spend all my time playing sims social or reading or hiding:\


yeah. will try to remember to post more:\ no promises though x_x
angel_9_lives: (Default)
...this is a lil late, but...well, I haven't been in the mood to do any updating, tbqh.

thank you to everyone for the bday wishes (and unexpected bday pressies, lol)~

not that most people will care, but bday haul:

telescope (strong enough to see Jupiter *_*)
acrylic paint set (the paint, a painting pad & brushes)
henna kit
10$ gift card at the half price book store
money (rofl, a check for $29 for 29 years...and me w/o a bank account...ilu mommy XD;; )
gummy bears (*_*)
chocolate cupcake vgift (♥ lub_lub_lub)
something still in the mail from mi shile, Jac~ (no idea what it is ;_;

not a bad haul, especially since (except for the unexpected gifts from lub & shile), everything I got, was actually something that I really REALLY wanted *_*

that being said, my actual bday sucked. Kristy decided to have herself a bitch fit, and oh, guess who it happened to be directed at. yeah. yay. and then later, at like 10pm, right before she was off to bed, THEN she stopped by my "room" and told me "happy birthday...sorry, I kinda forgot:\"

wonderful, huh? -_-* at least she's the one that got me the telescope, and we DID kinda have my bday stuff early, but still. bitchfit on my bday, is NOT my idea of fun.

last weekend...well, actually, two weekends ago, now, was when I had my bday stuff. sis and oikko came out, we out to eat at wendy's (I wanted one of their caramel shakes, omfg, I LOVE THEM), then the book store...couldn't find anything I really wanted, and they didn't have the henna kits anymore, so we left there and went to a couple different stores. finally ended up at walmart (I needed cat litter), with sis bitching the whole time about how I hadn't found anything I wanted, so I drug her over to the art supplies.

I shoved her the acrylic paint set I had been eying, but couldn't justify paying $12+ on something I probably would use ONCE*. she grabbed it. pointed out some drawing was especially for acrylic paints, so grabbed that too, and a set of brushes. oh yeah, and some gummy bears on the way out, lol.

* if you know me, you know I SUCK at art. seriously. sis disagrees. I used to kinda scribble, and it came out as abstract, and apparently she's loved a couple of them enough to keep them for herself when I would've just tossed them o.O

anyway, it turns out that I don't completely suck as a painter :O I'm no master, that's for DAMN sure, and it's all abstract so far, but I've actually done a couple that I'm kinda proud of~ once I get a chance, I'll see about scanning them~

she also told me that she's gonna send me her henna kit, cause she still hasn't used it, and she knows I really wanted it, sooo...*_* (yes, Jac, I still have the stuff I got from you, lol. this kit comes with a shitload of stencils, though~ *_*)

I forget how long sis ended up being here, but it was a good long while. she didn't spend the night this time cause of how far apart we live now, but that worked out for the best anyway, lol. I always felt bad that I'd sleep through her visit on sunday, but dammit, it's the ONE day I get to sleep in, so yeah...this time, I didn't have to worry about it, lol.


I dun like getting up at 7am ;_; at Koda's school, the kids have to be there by 7:45 AM. at 8am, the kid is considered late, so I've been having to get up at 7am so I can take care of Nathan while Kristy & Brian drive Koda to school. (don't ask why it takes TWO of them to drop her off...she's their oldest, and it's her first year at school...questioning them is borderline grounds for being drawn and quartered x_x)

omg though, that reminds me...I'm tired and playing a quick game before I crawl into bed, but omfg, this...djhksdfsd:

a couple weeks ago now, Kristy and Brian came home from work, and I went to my room for something (I forget what). when I came out...Koda is telling her mommy and daddy about her "erections".

"I have a BIG erection"/"I have a LOT of erections!"

Kristy (knowing that I read yaoi/slash): ...Anny...why is she talking about erections?
me (seeing life flashing before my eyes): wtf!omg!IDK!! ;_;

we spent somewhere between 5-15 minutes guessing words that sounded ANYTHING like what she was saying. we tried the "show me what you're talking about" approach, and all she did was point to her toys, so that was a bust.

and then I FINALLY figured out what it was. we watch this show called "Dinosaur Train". On the show, two of the lil dinos have.....COLLECTIONS.

Don has a BIG collection, and Shiny has LOTS of collections.

yeah. we worked with her until she pronounced it right, but I'm still a bit worried.

her teacher's name is one that could VERY easily be mispronounced as "Shy Cock". SO FAR, Koda has pronounced it right, but I just KNOW that she's going to slip up one day, and she's gonna say "Ms. Shy-cock, Ms. Shy-cock! Look at my erection!"

and yeah. I am going to die. on the spot. x_x

jhdkfds...okay, game then bed. *waves* goodnight, and again, thanks for the bday wishes ♥
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)
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 don't care what anyone says.

yes, kids are loud, obnoxious, and annoying as hell most of the time, but...there's something incredibly satisfying when a child learns to read their first word, and you realize that you're the one that helped them on that first step of actual knowledge.


on another note, I got my new phone:D not entirely happy cause it's not the one I wanted, but it'll do. I'll update with my new number in a few~
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)
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
