Merry Christmas!

What did everyone get for Christmas? I got a new kindle and leather cover with a built in book light, nail polish, makeup, 4 cartridges for my cricut (robotz, mini monsters, nifty fifties, and twinkle toes), a pink tool set for my cricut, Tinkerbell and the Great Fairy Rescue on bluray, 2 new cookbooks, a cookbook stand, and a spoon rest! Oh yeah I also got extra dark Lindor Truffles and twizlers. Chris and Sarge made out pretty good too! Chris got a World of Warcraft mouse, a poker set, a card shuffler, Iron Man on blueray, Toy Story 3 on blueray, 2 Wii games, an electric tooth brush, and tons of candy. Sarge got a king ball, a tug roap, a giant busy bone, pheast flavored treats, a frizbee, a worm, a hippo, and a tree.

Last night for Christmas Eve Laura and Kelly invited us over and we had tacos and hung out. It was lots of fun. Sarge even got to go and play with Trouble. Today we just spent the day in. We slept in until 10. And then opened presents. After opening presents we watched Toy Story. We then had Subway for lunch. Chris then went to play with his new mouse and I watched Tinkerbell. We spoke to both his family and my family. We are just going to have a normal dinner tonight. Chris parents fly in on Monday so I'm making "Christmas" dinner that night.

Hope everyone enjoys their Christmas and doesn't for get the true meaning! Make sure you send up a Happy Birthday to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

Nothing really new. I've been working a lot. Everyone is now completely trained so we got our "permanent" schedules. I will be working every Monday and Tuesday 7-6 and every 3rd Saturday 8-1.  I've been cooking every night. I love it. I'm starting to experiment more. I'm getting pretty good, if I do say so myself. Chris' birthday is on Tuesday. I hope he likes the present I got him. IDK though because it's not exactly what he wanted. I made him a super cute card! He will love it! I also made cards for everyone who has a birthday/anniversary in November and mailed them out. Some of them are late and some are early. I am keeping up with my shows through hulu. I have given up trying to watch them "live". Guam tv just sucks. Haven started back up but the Gates hasn't. I hope they don't cancel it. It was a good show. Haven is getting really good but most of my shows are. Not too happy with this season of Grey's. It has really gown down hill. Private Practice isn't too bad. Desperate Housewives is getting good. There was a big shocker at the end of the last episode. Can't wait to see how it plays out. Destination Truth came to Guam. that was pretty cool. They don't believe in the Guam Zombies but they just didn't look in the right place. They really didn't do their research for this one. They also went to Pohnpei. Chris has been there and it was cool to see what Chris seen. Not much else is going on. So I guess that is it for now.

Dog Bite

I got bit by a dog at work. I bent down to pick up her leash and she lunged at me and got me right in the lip. I rushed to the ER and had to get 4 stitches. I was at the ER for about 3 hours getting fixed up. They sent me home with antibiotic cream and pills. No pain killers. It's very awkward. It started hurting today. I got all the blood off. It is still very swollen. I called into work today because I was in so much pain. It hurts to talk. This picture is from when I got home from the ER.

I have decided to stop doing Project Underway. With getting a dog and a job its hard to keep up. I am behind and just cant find the time to blog everyday. I will still be blogging and keeping everyone informed just not as often.

Project Underway-26

Day 26 9/10/10
Today has been a day! I got up early. talk to Rip an Leah on skype. Then I went to my Doctor's appointment for my achne. I got 2 creams and some antibiotics. I then went and picked up Alice and we went to the thrift store. I found lots of good buys. I spent $11 today. I got a book, 2 cook books, a bowl/plate set, a tea pot, a hot coco pot and mugs, 2 stuffed animals for Sarge, and a bag. I came home to find my house was infested with ticks. Brittany and her mom came over and helped me get out some plants I didn't want from my yard. They took them to Brittany's to plant in her yard. I then took Sarge to the vet. He got his rabies shot and a flea and tick bath. Laura said she would bring him home for me so I came home and bug bombed my house. I used 5 bombs in my house and 1 in my garage/car. While my house was being bombed I went to Brittany's house. I had dinner over there. We had veggie burgers with corn and sweet potato fries. Yummy! Laura called me and said they were home and that Sarge was bleeding from where his stitches were from him being neutered. She called the vet and she told us how to temporally fix it. We had to super glue it shut. Well Sarge is bleeding into his scrotum. It is making them swell pretty large. The vet also said she thinks he has a tick disease. Which is causing his blood not to be able to clot. So he has to go back to the vet tomorrow to get his junk drained and to get the special meds for his disease. But on a plus note I applied to work as a receptionist at the vet and she wants me to come in tomorrow while Sarge is there and shadow Laura. I'm excited. So Sarge is staying at Laura's tonight so she can keep an eye on him and she will take him with her to work in the morning. I came home and super cleaned my house. Sweept and mopped, washed all the bedding and sheets. I also washed all the towels and clothes. I vacuumed  the couch and love seat. I also washed all my dishes in the dish washer. The bombs worked. I found lots of dead bugs that are now out of my house. Everyone please pray for Sarge that he heals quickly and nothing else will go wrong. What a long and tiring day!

Project Underway-25

Day 25 9/9/10

Project Underway-24

Day 24 9/8/10
 Today was a fun day. I went to GAIN and applied for my doggie. Brittany came with me. I parked under this tree. The application take 24 hours so I should get him tomorrow. He went to a foster home so I didn't get to see him at the shelter. When I got home I started dinner. I put meat and bbq sauce in the crockpot. Then I got a phone call from Sarge's foster mom and she said I could come over and play with him. So Brittany, her mom, and I headed over to her house. I played with him for an hour or so. Then Brittany's mom decided she wanted to go to GAIN to see all the doggies because she wants to take one home with her. So off to GAIN we went again. She found a couple she liked but she didn't put in any applications.  After that we came home and I finished dinner while Brittany showered. They then came over and we ate my yummy dinner. I made "ribs" in the crockpot with bbq sauce on them and green beans and mashed potatoes. It was so yummy. I cleaned up dinner then we went to the movies. We seen The Switch. It was a very cute movie. Two thumbs up from me. I also got another birthday package in the mail today. Here's to another great day :)

Project Underway-23

Day 23
 Today I went to Fleet and Family and used their printer to print out an application for a job at the thrift store. I hope I get it. I also kind of went through their coupons. Holy Smolly they have a lot. There were thousands. After that I headed to the beach. I took pictures of the cool caves then laid my towel out and began to read. And of course it started to rain. Not just rain but pour. i grabbed all my stuff and hurried and shoved it back into my car. I decided just to go to the other side of the beach to the pool and float in the water weather it was raining it or not. It was only sprinkling by then. I set my stuff down at a table and went to put on my new water shoes. I went to lean on the wall next to me and almost put my hand on a giant spider. I was so freaked out. I didn't even put my shoes on. I moved my stuff to a different table and got in the water. I didn't float for very long. Everyone had left after the rain. I didn't feel very comfortable in the water without anyone else there. Although I like it when it's not busy i do like someone there just in case you know. So I left. I came home and showered and watch Little people and Kate plus 8.

Dog Update

We decided on him. We just have to apply for him which I will do in about a week. But were stuck on deciding on a name for him... We can't seem to agree on anything. So I need your help, what do you think we should name him?

Project Underway-22

Day 22
 I went to the Nex and got Brittany a get well gift then headed to her house to give it to her. I spent about 2 hours there just talking and hanging out with her and her mom. Than I went to the movies to see Ramona & Beezus. Such a cute movie! I loved it. Then I had a break so I came home and freshened up and grabbed a water bottle then headed back to the movies to see Sorcerer's Apprentice. It was an ok movie. I liked it but I'm glad I didn't pay for it. Not one of the better movies Disney has produced. Didn't do anything else. Just spent the day at the movies :) Was kinda nice! I enjoyed it.

Project Underway-21

Day 21
 This is my new dress that I got at the thrift store. I brought it home and immediately put it in the wash. Well when I pulled it out the padding in it was all twisted. I worked for about 2 hours trying to straighten it. I finally gave up and decided to cut them out. I carefully made a small slit and pulled them out to discover they were sewn to the dress! No wonder they wouldn't go straight. I carefully removed the stitching and pulled those suckers out! It's way better with out them. The dress is a tad big so I was thinking about adding straps. IDK though. That would really test my sewing skills. After doing this I ran a few errands and talked to my mom then went to the movies. I seen Salt. Great movie. Typical Angelina Jolie movie. Action packed. She's such a bad ass. As much as I hate her for being a home wrecker I love her just as much for her awesome movies and stunt work. I seen Brittany and her mom at the movies. We sat together. It was nice to have someone to sit next too.

I got up at 9am. I played on facebook for a while. Then at like 10ish I went to the thrift store. I got 2 books, a pitcher, and a dress. After I went grocery shopping. I got all my groceries for the next month. When I got home I put everything away and talked to my mom for a while. I then made my self Sheppard's Pie for dinner. Yum yum. I made such a mess that when I started cleaning it up I just couldn't stop. I cleaned the whole house. It's spotless. It feels so good to have a clean house. I also did all my laundry! I love it when I get these sperts. My house always looks great afterward. :0

Project Underway-18

Day 18
 Today was a pretty awesome day. I totally expected it to be crappy but it wasn't at all. I got up and opened my present from Chris. It is a black pear and the shell it was in from Pohnpei. Pohnpei is one of only two places in the world where black pearls grow in the ocean and people dive for them and they are not grown on a farm. I thought that was pretty cool. Then my mom called me and my whole family sang Happy Birthday to me. I didn't do much the rest of the day. I talked to my Grandma. I got lots of birthday wishes on facebook. I got my package from Casey today. Perfect timing! I also got a couple cards in the mail. I watched a little tv and did a couple crosswords. Then I went out to dinner with Lis, and Sue, and Laura, and Kelly! It was so fun. We went to Fridays. I had a mudslide. Way yummy. I got a birthday hat and a flower bouquet made out of balloons. I also got some pretty yummy ice cream! Kelly and Laura paid for my dinner. Thanks guys! And when I got home I had flowers on my door step. They were from Brittany. She couldn't come to dinner so she got me flowers. I love them. All in all it was a pretty good birthday! :)

Project Underway-17

Day 17
 I went to the self help and got my plant voucher and a filter for my air conditioning then I went to the NEX2. I got four potted flowers for $.36. What a deal. I got white, light pink, purple, and medium pink. I already had dark pink. Although that flower is kinda dead at the moment. I haven't decided where I want to plant them yet. After that I got lunch at McDonald's and then came home. That took me most of the day (since I didn't get up 'till noon). I came home and relaxed on the couch and watched tv. I watched the new episode of cupcake wars. It was a party for the 100th episode of Ace of cakes. Duff was one of the judges. That was interesting considering he hates cupcakes. This one lady made a cupcake with tobacco in it. Yuck! I was way grossed out. the judges hated it but she won because of her cupcake display. I'm excited for all the fall shows to start. We really need to invest in a dvr. I just watch too many different shows.

Project Underway-16

Day 16
 I didn't do much. I had a very bad headache. I went to the mail box and I had 4 cards. 2 birthday cards and 2 thinking of you cards. I got the birthday cards from my mom and my uncle Bob. The thinking of you cards were from the Thursday morning bible study and the Aper's. It was nice to get. I really have a collection of cards now. After that I slept in the chair and on the couch almost all day. Watched some tv and that's it.

Project Underway-15

Day 15
 I went to the mini-mart today to get mild. I ended up getting milk, chocolate milk, french bread pizza, and these delicious crackers. I've never had them before, heard they were good so i decided to try them. I ate the whole bag. Loved them! I started watching Sons of Anarchy. We have season one on dvd thanks to Casey. She gave it to Chris for his birthday. It's definitely and interesting show. i may end up watching the whole season before i go to bed :) 

Project Underway-14

Day 14
I went to the NEX and priced dog stuff and also look for my gardening tools i have been wanting. I got a rake and gloves but couldn't find any hand gardening tools. I also picked up one of the amazing itch relief sticks for the stupid bites on my ankles. I don't know what is attacking me but total I have had 5 bites now. Two on my right leg, Three on my left, and one on my hand. They are so itchy!!! I also got some bug spray and sprayed my whole garage and all of my doors. Hopefully no more bugs get in my house. Although there was a gecko on my ceiling.

Project Underway-13

Day 13
 I want a dog! So I asked Chris if I could get one from the animal shelter here. It's called G.A.I.N. - Guam Animals In Need. He said I could go look and take pictures of any that I liked and email them to him. So I did. I got up and headed down to gain by 10am. It took me over an hour to get there. Gain is on the other side of the island and traffic was horrible. They had so many. Lots of puppies. I wanted them all! I found two puppies that I just fell in love with but Chris didn't like them. He found an adult dog and a puppy that he liked and sent me back to Gain to take more pictures of them and to find out more about the process of adopting a dog and the costs. So I went back to Gain and did just that. I got to play with both of them. I want them both but Chris said we are only getting one dog. :( We decided on the adult dog. he is a red nosed pitbull. He is very friendly. I played with him for about 10 min. Very sweet dog. But we have to wait until payday to see if we can afford him.... If we do get him we will have to name him. We have come up with a few we like, what do you guys think?

Project Underway-12

Day 12
I got up and went to lunch at the NEX with Lis and then we went to the thrift store. She has never been before. It was fun. We are going to try and make that a regular Friday deal... go to lunch then the thrift store together. I didn't do much after that. Played on line, watched some videos on youtube. I went to the post office and spent almost an hour there the line was so long...


I went to G.A.I.N. today and looked at all the doggies. I found lots of them! I found two puppies I really want. Here are all the pics of them....

Project Underway-11

Day 11
 Today was an eventful day. I went and bowled with some of the other wives from the sequoia. It was a lot of fun. I got to meet some new people as well. After I got home I worked on Thank You cards and guess what, I finished them! I took lots of pictures at the bowling ally and was going to use one of those for my photo today originally but when I put my SD card in my computer, my computer started freaking out and erased all the pictures off of my card without uploading them to my computer. I was so mad! I spent like an hour trying to find what happened to the pictures but could never find them. :( I emailed Chris all night long back and forth. I was up until at least 5am.  I slept well though! 

Project Underway-10

Day 10
 The rain woke me up it was raining so hard. It poured all day. and thundered all day too. It was so loud. It shook my house. Crazy. Lots of lighting too. It had finally stopped raining at 2:30ish. I went to the movies at 3 and seen The Karate Kid. I loved it. Very cute movie. Of course the end is predictable but it's a kids movie so what can you expect. After the movie I went straight to the gym and took another Zumba class. Way fun! I really like Zumba. It kicked my butt. There was a different teacher this time. i liked her better. She interacted with us more and her energy was so contagious. I think I will be making the Wednesday 5:30 Zumba class a regular occasion. After I got home I was exhausted. I took a shower and watched a movie then went to bed. I didn't even eat dinner. But I did have a late lunch so that's probably why I wasn't hungry. I watched Nanny McPhee. It was a pretty cute movie. I was surprised because the trailers for it made it look stupid. I think I might go see Nanny McPhee returns. But I'll wait until it comes to the base theater for free.

Project Underway-9

Day 9
 It was sunny out so I hurried and got ready and headed to the beach! I ate a sandwich, the floated in the ocean, then read and laid in the sun, then floated some more. Then I looked at all the cool fish by the stairs. I tried to take pictures of them but it wasn't easy. My camera is not water proof. This picture is of the cool blue fish that kind of look like Dory. I want to go snorkeling. I want to see all the cool fish. But I think I will definitely wait for Chris. When I got home I worked on Thank you cards. Talked to my mom on skype. And watched the rest of my dance video. Then I went to bed and watched another movie on I finished watching Johna: Veggie Tales and started watching The Secret of Nimh.

Project Underway-7

Day 7
 I woke up and went to church. great message today! If you were arrested today for being a Christian would there be enough evidence to convict you? I then came home and got ready and headed to the beach. As soon as I got in the water it started raining. Lame! So I had to come home. So I opened my door and the blinds on my window and fell asleep on the coach listening to the rain. After I woke up I felt refreshed so I went for a walk. I walked down the hill and back up. Killer.I made my self dinner and now I'm watching Hairspray. I love this movie!!! It's the sing a long edition too :)
