trip stuff

I'm working on a list of what I need to take for my trip. My co-workers are so adorable and they gave me a basket of things for my trip - like sunscreen, bug spray, lotions, etc. I need a few more things. I've been looking for some things online but I think Troy and I are going to go "downtown" tomorrow and look for a few more things. I'll check out prices and shop around a little bit. I DON'T HAVE MUCH TIME! ahh. This is so crazy. I need a really nice watch to take with me. I was looking at these Audemars Piguet. Some of them are really nice. I don't think I'd go for something that fancy. We'll see what I can find!


Yesterday I got FIVE SHOTS! Yellow fever, Vivaxim, Menactra, MMR and Polio! My arms ache. Well my left one hurts quite a lot - which had 3 shots in it. Crazy.

I had a hard time picking up the babies today!
My insurance will cover part of them. SO i need to send off some of my information soon so I can try and get a decent chunk of my money back! (So i can pay off my credit card!).

I have to get painting too. i've been a slacker. I have a few started so many over the weekend a bit I'll work on some and get some photos up to share!!

i smell the love

I love pillar candles because they last me awhile. I don't like little candles because I go through them so quickly and I hate that! My sister gave me a huge candle at Christmas time and I still have a lot of it left. I always seem to get really expensive candles too - so I hate using them up! My mom always seems to give me really nice ones. I don't like putting out a lot of money but I guess she doesn't mind! And I don't mind that she doesn't mind! Confused yet?

travel backpacks?!

I'm looking up travel backpacks. Anyone know of decent ones...? I am looking on ebay. I think i'll end up getting on there because it will cost me half as much as buying one in a fancy store in the city.

I do have an ongoing list of things that I'm going to need to buy... like mosquito nets and things like that. March is approaching so I need to get my butt in gear~

take me out the game

I don't like sports. I just don't. I didn't grow up in a sport-zy type family. People are always going on about New York Yankees tickets and Hockey and all that jazz but I don't get it. I actually don't mind watching a game in person but to watch it on television - it doesn't do anything for me. I've gone and watched a few hockey games and they were always fun. Especially with friends who like to cheer and be silly.

I love the office!

I'm been so slack on this blog. I don't know why I feel like I've been extra busy these past two weeks. It was my best friends birthday on Tuesday! So I can't wait to see her tomorrow so that I can give her her birthday present. I made most of it. I love making gifts for people :) It makes me happy. I'm in the process of finishing some of it up now. :)

And I'm watched season 4 of "The Office". I've watched 8 episodes in 24 hours :|

Something I do need to get for my trip is a nice watch. I checked out these Suunto watches but I'm just not sure what kind I want. I never wear watches ever but I want to get into the habit - but first I need to get one. I would like to have one for my trip since I don't plan on taking my cell phone with me. Knowing me I would loose it or it would get stolen. Maybe I should ask for one for my birthday?! I think that's a good idea


It's funny.

I've been going through some old posts and deleting some and I stopped to read some and it was really funny how hyper and happy I sound in them. And lately I feel so "blah". I don't know if it's just the weather, my body freaking out or stress for feeling this way lately.

Hopefully it will pass soon.


These days I'm pretty happy with my insurance that I have with work. I called them last week and they are going to cover a portion of my shots that I am getting for my trip to Kenya! This is going to cut that cost in half which is so wonderful! I don't think I am going to do another fundraiser. I'm just going to keep doing my paintings and see how far I get. I found this term life insurance here. It's pretty good!

It is done

Winter Craft Show! Done and Done!

Now I have mixed emotions about` the show. It was so much work but I would say it was worth it and I'm pretty satisfied with the outcome of it all. I definitely know how I would tweak it if I did another one in the future. But I think I was very organized and overall pulled it off!! It was a beautiful day and I did hope for a better turn out of customers to come through but you can't force them in. It was a windy day so it was hard to put up all the large posters. But Oh well~
