an entry i wrote in my other journal. something i thought i might post here too.

i tried to update earlier, and liveurinal was like, screw you. anyway. i called the city clerk of auburn hills and got them to send me a copy of my voter's registration. so now i really DO get to vote.

and i thought i'd share some news that not everyone seems to know. THERE ARE MORE THAN TWO CANDIDATES ON THE BALLOT.

i refuse to choose the lesser of two evils. i'm not wasting my vote. i'm using my vote how i want. it is a choice, you know. and if anyone is tired of only having "two candidates", then stand up for your rights as a voter, and vote for someone whose principals you truly believe in, not the lesser of two evils. the only way we're going to break the two party system IS to vote outside of it. no matter who wins this election (and i know it won't be who i vote for), we are in for another four years of unhappiness. i consider it throwing away my vote if i just vote towards the lesser of two evils, who i don't even AGREE with.

bush is a war monger, kerry is a pussy. bush sends jobs overseas, kerry OWNS factories overseas. bush wants to fight every damn nation and screw what the UN thinks. kerry wants to pull the troops out of iraq within 6 months, regardless of whether the country is stable, damn the consequences, and who cares about all those people in iraq, it's only our soldiers that matter.

it seems to me that people get really fanatical one way or the other, on both sides. if you're a kerry supporter, then you are hardcore. same as bush supporters. but i think so many people forget there IS a middle ground between these two phonies. and the only way to bring it to popularity is to make your vote COUNT. as in, vote for who you'd LIKE to see running this country, not the one that you think will make you suffer less.

and fyi - if i were to vote on the two party system, i'd vote bush anyway. not because i like him any more than kerry. but i DO work for a small business, and my income is directly effected by the business taxes. and for many other reasons i won't get into.


oh. and if anyone other than me knows who tetsu inoue is, i'm getting world reciever, an incredibly rare and out of print album. if you don't know who tetsu inoue is, he's an incredibly amazing downtempo artist.

caesarmoo and eknv777, i'm adding you to my other journal because i want to keep up on how your wedding is going.

other pertinent info - my wedding shower will be on november 6th from 1-4 at the novi community center. just a heads up. and i'm trying not to shamelessly self-promote here, but i know there are some on my friends list that will want to send a gift because they live far away. we're registered at marshall fields fr dishes, flatware, and glassware. we're registered at target for cookware, kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and storage stuff. we're also asking for ikea gift certificates, which can be obtained by calling 1-800-434-4532. I know I've been living on my own for quite some time, but the fact of the matter is, all of my stuff is crap. seriously. my bedside table has a leg broken off. our tv stand in the bedroom? busted, and about 20 years old at that. our couch we bought from our upstairs neighbor at beacon hill for $50. it's covered in brown stains from the slipcover they had on it. they're currently half assed covered by a sheet. 23 year old rocker in the baby's room, 10 year old recliner out here. our dishes and cookware are hand-me-downs and cheap, falling apart and mismatched. my computer desk is an old table, my sewing table is a card table. don't make me go on. The Ikea gift certificates are being requsted to replace our shitty furniture, and possibly buy a bed frame. the most important thing right now is seating. if you've not heard of ikea, or never seen any of their stuff, look at www.ikea.com/us, they've got AWESOME stuff for pretty cheap. the closest one to us right now is in chicago, but they're building one 20 minutes away in canton that'll be open in 2006. if you want my address to send gifts or giftcards to, just email me at sastarne@oakland.edu. i'm sending out the invites this week, PLZPLZPLZ rsvp kthx. and yeah, i'm throwing it myself with help, approval, and ideas from icekitten. this is for a reason. i am the only one of my bridal party that's not in school. they all have INSANE schedules, and i'd rather just bear the brunt of organizing it rather than let someone else who's already way too damn busy handle it by themselves.

i feel like hammered shit. i think i'm coming down with something nasty. not to mention, i'm covered in horrible bruises from falling in my mom's parking lot.

but, on the up side....

i got a new car. an electric blue saturn vue. it's tits.

i got my wedding dress. it looks spectacular.

we've picked the ren cen for our wedding, and we're about to execute a contract with them.

all of my bridal party got together last night and had a good time. i think.

there's more, but i can't think now. i feel awful. dramaqueen8's baby shower is today. i doubt she wants to be around someone who's sick. i'm going to call and tell her that i'm ill...and i'll mail her a present, or bring one when i'm not sick.

oh yeah. and wes came in at 4 in the morning. dumbass.

yeah. happy 4th of july. my grandma fell in the shower and cracked 3 of her ribs and bruised her lung. she's in the hospital. my aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. ...

family party was canceled. didn't go to the graduation party we were supposed to. spent some time with my mother. wes was out of it and grumpy, he pulled a muscle in his shoulder and i gave him too much flexeril. my mom came over for an hour so we could go down to the beach on walled lake and watch some fireworks. watched bad santa and got into bed. andrew woke up at 4:30 in the morning JUST WAILING. if there was ever any doubt in my mind that he needs tylenol on a fairly regular basis, it was erased last night. he hadn't had it in over 13 hours. i should've just listened to the doctor. but i feel bad just drugging him up all the time. however, it's better than him being in so much pain that he just screams. you can see the tooth that's coming in, it's not even a front one. he's my little oddity. he's such an angel though, even though he had a rough evening, woofed all over me, cranked away for about an hour, and finally smiled and fell asleep.

i'm starting to feel better, and the wedding planning is going well.

also, our family webpage is shaping up just fine. cantpunishme.org be forewarned, it's just a family page, nothing nifty or interesting, nothing arty, just pictures of my grunt, and info about the wedding. i'm still working on it, i'm using dreamweaver, and i love it.

in other news, i hate my sister...but i really don't, i love the shit out of her.

and here's why i'm jealous...Collapse )

damn her for being so beautiful.

it has come to my attention that there are many people concerned about the deletion of my journal.

...let me sum it up real nicelike. there's a lot of crap going on in my life right now that i don't particularly feel like sharing, and seeing as i have 30 days to undelete it, i don't really see any reason to leave it activated. or didn't, anyway.

i'm not dead. i'm not locked in a rubber room. i still have all of my limbs, and all of my family. my son is happy, safe, healthy, and at home where he belongs.

until such time when i feel like reading/updating/whatevering with livejournal, don't freak.

thx.

liveurinal pisses me off. people piss me off.

my shoulder is all screwed up. like, real bad. coupled with the fact that some old injury pulled the cervical curve out of my neck and my c-5 vertebrae pops out of place on a regular basis, pulling ribs out of place on the left side, and occasionally my left hip, my whole left side is a mass of pain. add some wierd left nipple pain, some hunger, and you get one irritable girl.

wes is drinking all the wine i bought for next time we have steaks. he's drunk. i was going to cook dinner, but i forgot.

if you should be invited to my wedding....you should let me know. i.e. leave a comment with your WHOLE name. some of you (who are already on the guestlist because i know you in real life) i don't know your last names, or how to spell them. i'm a moron. but probably nobody will comment on this because nobody will even read it. thx guys.

wedding communities are stupid. and the parenting communities are pissing me off.

hmph.

do me a favor....and vote. kthx.

wes and i are thinking about getting married at disney world. believe me, this is not as gay as it sounds. the grand floridian hotel has a wedding pavilion. and it's straight out of my dreams. check it out here.

but...in order to see if it's within our budget constraints, i need to get a feel for how many guests we'll have. i know a lot of family will come. and hopefully some friends will be able to as well. if this ends up working out, we'll probably have a really big party beforehand for friends & family who can't go, in lieu of having a bridal shower or any kind of reception at home. that way, those who can't come can still participate, give us gifts, laugh at us, whatever. FYI-we're thinking early next year, like february or march.

Poll #302104 disney wedding....

if we were to get married at disney world, would you want to come? (believe me, it's not as hokey as it sounds).

yes
11(78.6%)
no
0(0.0%)
maybe
3(21.4%)

if we gave you plenty of notice ahead of time (like 6 months) and could get you discounted airfare/accomodations/passes, would you be able to come?

yes
11(78.6%)
no
0(0.0%)

yeah, i suppose i'll update. nothing really new to report. just enjoying this last week being home with andrew. i'm hoping we get into this healthy start program diane (our public health nurse) recommended to us. Nancy (the woman from healthy start) came and interviewed me yesterday. she said i'll hear back in a week. it's this really neat developmental program where someone comes and hangs out at your house with you and your baby, and they bring toys and games and all kinds of stuff to encourage your baby to learn. it's sweet.

in other news, i decided to switch andrew to isomil (different brand, still the same forumulation - lactose free soybased). it went okay, but then we ran out and tried to switch him back to prosobee. didn't go so well. the whole story can be viewed here - http://www.livejournal.com/community/badparents/209512.html - if you're interested.

we have to try to formulate a plan for who is watching andrew what night this weekend. we're going to try to hit up planet of the drums saturday night, and the paxahau party with speedy j on sunday. other than that, riverfront nefarious.net stage is where it's at for me, with the exception of wanting to see kevin saunderson, kenny larkin, and maybe rolando. i've heard of a lot of the others on the lineup, but am not real interested in any of them. if anyone has any recommendations as for who i should check out, let me know.

i went and had coffee with itakepictures on tuesday. that was nice. except for when my dad called wes because he wanted to come see the baby, and wes was like, sarah's not here, she's out having coffee with paul. and my dad flipped out on me. p.s. i'm 21. and i can make decisions regarding who i should be friends with on my own.

i got my blood test results back in the mail. borderline anemia and an elevated liver enzyme count. take iron supplements and come back in a month for more lab work. hmph.

we also went and got haircuts on tuesday. i told the chick i only wanted a trim. ....yeah. i have no hair. but it's the best damn $5 haircut i've ever had. i'm happy with it.

andrew is getting closer and closer to sleeping through the night. last night he went down around 9:30, and wes woke him up at eat at 2:30, so that he could go to bed and i wouldn't have to get up right away (i'm have problems sleeping again). andrew didn't wake up until quarter to 8 this morning.

for whatever reason, even when i'm exhausted, i can't sleep. i'm turning into a zombie. and i spend most of the day and night dizzy. dizziness is a side effect of meridia. and of anemia. and of low blood sugar brought on by meridia-induced days where i don't eat. and also of the flexeril i take at night to help me sleep, which isn't working. by the time i've gone to bed for the last week, my muscles have been screaming in pain. but they're always different muscle groups. like my butt muscles hurt last night and today for whatever reason.

i've been reading a book on child development that jennifer at families first lent me. i love it. i've also been reading random feminist books my sister bought. like right now i'm reading slut! by leora tanenbaum. quite interesting, but sometimes a little over the top.

my sister just got here to babysit, so i'm going to the office. maybe i'll update more later....

nothing like spending most of a saturday in the office. geez. so much to do.

last night...took wes to see shrek 2. it was quite funny.

thursday...not so good. woke up at 4 a.m. with a hellacious muscle spasm. doctor called me in flexeril. didn't really work. the whole day sucked.

wednesday... was our one year anniversary. wes surprised me and took me to the whitney. unf!! best damn food i've ever eaten. http://www.thewhitney.com/

tonight...i'm not sure. part of me wants to stay home with the baby, part of me wants to go out, like i haven't in a long ass time. i don't know. urgh. when does it become okay to leave your baby with someone for something other than necessity? i feel bad leaving him with anyone if it's not totally necessary.

i had more to say, but ...i'm so burnt out i can't remember.

oh yeah. i keep having dreams that keepthesabbat and i are making out. that's creepy and wierd.

now i'm going to go pick my son up, and take him over to my mom's, and do a bit of grocery shopping for her. she's got some kind of infection in her jaw and her face is all swollen and she won't leave the house. then i'll finally get to spend some time with him today. (and maybe, just maybe, i'll drop him off at my parent's house late tonight and go downtown for a bit.)

and i'm really looking forward to next weekend. really a lot. but not really because of the lineup. about the only 2 people i'm going ot make it a point to see is kevin saunderson and kenny larkin.

oooooh. and i get my combined mother's day/anniversary present from wes sometime later on this week. dammit, i want it now!!! nobody will tell me anything, aside from be patient. i hate being patient. i asked if it'll make me cry, and wes said...probably. hmph. whatever that means.

someone once wrote me a poem...Collapse )

it's been a long time since i'd read that. but i want to give you mad high fives for writing me an amazing poem. and drawing me some funny ass pictures too, that are hanging around in a box somewhere. box o' paul. har har. hope all is well.

in other news that i forgot to update about, being too angry and being on a tirade at stupid pediatricians.....

...the picture tube on our 27 inch TV blew up the other day. now the only thing the TV displays is a black screen with a pink horizontal line through the center. sweet, right? we were all excited because we have a 36" TV that we just have to go pick up, and we were going to put the 27" TV in the bedroom and throw out the suck ass 19" one that has a dark picture. oops, no can do. *growl*

and while unpacking today, i got stuck looking at my middle school yearbook. it was hysterical. but it was sad, in a way. i was so close with bethany betzler, and kelly graves, and then there was michelle galovich and heather marchant and stephanie stumpf....bethany and i stopped hanging out after middle school. kelly and i grew apart, and then she had a baby. next time i go to red robin, i'm going to give kari (her twin sister) my number, and tell her to have kelly call me, that i miss her. michelle....well, she sucks. and she's psycho. and the worst kind of white trash loser. heather apparently flipped out in college, or something, according to a slightly inebriated sarah brown at the lewis black show this summer. stephanie had a baby right after high school, married her drill seargant (her baby daddy), and is living in oklahoma. i found this out also from sarah brown...or was it faran stott...because steph and i stopped talking after high school. same with heather and i. but both of them....sucked major. REALLY really major. i mean, heather, michelle, and stephanie were the stereotypical gossiping backstabbing bitches that everyone thinks of when they think of how much girls suck. bethany i guess just started running with whatever crowd or something. i don't know. i miss having those close friendships with girls that i did in middle school, but not so much in high school. which reminds me of renee kargela, who i was inseperable from in early high school. then she got her first boyfriend, and i never got to talk to her anymore. i heard through the grapevine that after 6 years of dating, matt proposed to her and she broke up with him.

...the only chick friend i had in high school that i still talk to is stacey seltzer. who needs to call me ASAP. because i know she's back from europe and i miss her.

public service announcement....

we do not yet have an internet connection. i am losing my mind. we will have dsl sometime next week. i'm at my mom's, using her dialup service. we may have dialup service after tonight. i don't know.

i love our new apartment, despite the fact that maintenance sucks and i'd like to shoot them. called to place a service order on sunday. had to call and re-place it monday. as of this morning (the last time i was actually home), they weren't there yet. there's a swallow's nest on our balcony. they poop on everything and divebomb us. there are honeycombs on our windows. and a large shelf in our closet fell down. we are slowly but surely unpacking.

now, i have to go home. wes is going to watch andrew while i soak in the bathtub for awhile. a lot has happened in the last week. i will be updating negatively and substantially soon. topics will include why southfield pediatrics is the worst pediatric office in the country, why the nurse at my ob/gyn office is going to get kicked in the face next time i see her, and why right now i feel godawful/stressed out/drained/etc.

thank you, that is all. i'm still accessible by cell phone. sorry to those i haven't called back yet (like you, stacy) but shit has just been absolutely INSANE.

hmm. update quick before we don't have service for several days. we're moving tomorrow. and guess who's not totally packed. oh wait. that'd be us. wes is in the kitchen packing. niether one of us has had more than 3 hours sleep. we both feel like zombies. his parents are babysitting andrew at least tonight, and maybe tomorrow night too. hmph. my brain just went blank.

went to bev's wedding wednesday. it was beautiful - the perfect fairytale wedding. bryan and alex were there. it was wierd at first, but we all sat in the smoking lounge just talking and whatever. i swing back and forth between wanting to poke bryan's eyes out with pointy metal objects for years of emotional torture, and thinking that he's not such a bad guy, and that he's really fun to hang out with. i guess...a little bit of both.

um. i had more to say. i'm so tired i can't remember anything.

but here's this - better late than never.

birth announcementCollapse )

so i guess that's it that's all. if you need me....you can call me.

so andrew looooves to pee on mommy and daddy. every chance he gets (i.e. every time we forget to cover his penis with a washcloth when we change him) he pees on us. and...he likes to pee up and out of his diaper, prompting clothing and sheet changes. he's been pretty good, with the exception of yesterday evening. he was crying most of the evening, and i cried, and wes was frustrated. it was not a pretty sight. we all eventually calmed down though, and andrew ended up sleeping most of the night. he qoke up only once at 3:30, i changed and fed him, laid him down, and checked on him again at about 4:30, and changed him again.

yes, i'm sorry. my entries probably won't be that interesting anymore. my life now revolves around my son.

anyway. we took him to his first pediatrician's appointment today, and he's doing well. he's back up near his birth weight. he was born weighing 7 pounds 14 ounces, and when we left the hospital, he was at 7 pounds 2 ounces. he's back up to 7 pounds 11 ounces, and the doctor says he's a great weight and height.

my recovery is going mostly well, i overdid it on saturday and paid like hell for it on sunday. i wanted to go see the rental professionals, who rent a lot of houses, condos, and townhouses in the area we're looking in, but wes said no, that we'd have to go another day. i pouted for awhile, but still didn't get my way. we came home, i pumped, and then took a nap for a long time. when i got up, i cleaned the house and made dinner. and now my incision hurts a lot. waaaay to go.

i've instructed wes to go get us movies. we'll see what he comes home with. he came home with from hell last night, which i lost interest in and so i washed the dishes instead.

nothing like waking up and realizing you've slept for 4 hours and it's now after 5 oclock.

huh.

to clarify, 28 days later was disturbing emotionally, and much too graphic for my current mindset. see, my mind tends to carry those images around. you know, of dead babies, and people projectile vomiting blood, etc. etc. so now, when i sleep, they like to pop up in random places. hence the 4 hour nap.

i'm about to hack the crap out of my friends list. you're being cut if: a - i don't know you in real life. b - i don't talk to you on a regular basis. or c - you don't ever comment. plus, this'll let some people off the hook who have me added out of courtesy but don't read it. if for some reason. you think i should put you back on my friends list, by all means, let me know.

i'd like them to post the lineup for this year's movement. here's the website. we're going to have to pick and choose because i know i won't be able to spend much time down there. i know it's all about techno, but shit i'd give my right arm to see some big name drum'n'bass artists. i know i can post on detroitluv what i'd like to see, but i don't feel like getting ridiculed.

in other news, i'm in charge of finding my replacement while i'm on maternity leave. anyone in the metro area with office experience want a job? the position will still be open when i come back, so it's not like it's just 8 weeks of fun.

cvs just called me. i paid for my prescription last night, and left it on the counter. i'm such a dumbass.

this...is why i try to ignore most inquiries that come from india, pakistan, etc.

we send the guy a quote on a machine. price tag is $44,500. i get an email this morning:

Dear Sirs,
Thank you for the offer.

We can accept a price of US $ 2000, if agreeable.

now, why would you call a pregnant woman at 4 in the morning? why? especially to leave a message like, "damn right you shouldn't be available, you're pregnant, you should be getting your rest, wanna go to acquaviva with me in a couple of weeks? we can party and blah blah blah."

ohhh jimmy. *shakes head* someday, he'll call at a reasonable hour.

hahah my mom cracks me up.

suzefactor: yuk. i hate trying to reflect package deals that we do. it always turns out messy.
mom @ work: brb
mom @ work: refelct package deals? what does that mean?
suzefactor: we do deals where we buy a package of machines, like 2-5 or howevermany. and then we bring them into inventory and sell them one by one. but we usually do them as joint ventures with a partner, most commonly skip. it turns into an absolute paperwork CF that has brought me to tears many times.
suzefactor: invoices and purchase orders flying all over the place, but they have to be done a certain way that reflects the machine coming into inventory so we can reflect it going out. one of us will pay for the machine up front then invoice the other for the half share of costs. then the person invoiced will issue a purchase order for the half share of costs and a check.
suzefactor: then, one of us sells the machine, and if it's the one who's got all the money back, they have to send the other person their share of costs plus their share of profits. if it's not, etc. etc. etc. and you have invoice and write purchase orders against all costs including freight, rigging, labor to restore the machine, etc. and it will just cause the hair on the back of your neck to rise.
mom @ work: ew
mom @ work: drowning in paperwork, like me. I'll never see my desktop again.
suzefactor: i feel the same way. and the worst part is, it's not the paperwork i'm drowing in, it's the electronic stuff.
mom @ work: e-mails, faxes, p.o.'s, quotes, more quote, more quotes, revised quotes, print out e-mails, print out nafta forms, scream and do it some more
suzefactor: mine is about the same except i don't deal with nafta, i get to put in machines and field phone calls from every yoohoo who sees our webpage and needs parts and service and stomping and burnination for every freaking machine on the planet even though the manufacturer of the machine went out of business a century ago, but i'm still expected to pull these numbers out of my butt. and then there's the 49353593 advertisers that call at least once a week who want us to advertise with them, or want to know why we cut our advertising with them, and then there's the truckers who need loads, the riggers woh need work, the customers who want their machines and the customers who want their money, the finance companies who call here all the freaking time who want our business AND THE PHONE JUST KEEPS RINGING UNTIL I WANT TO FLUSH IT DOWN THE $#%^$^%$ TOILET.
mom @ work: ROFLOL. Well said.
suzefactor: we're underappreciated and underpaid for what we do.
mom @ work: If I had a sledgehammer in my purse, so much destruction would have already occurred here...phones, fax machine, copier,
mom @ work: heads,
mom @ work: that's why you need to eventually get a degree and get out this aspect of the business. No good stuff comes from our end....only high commission end gets to reap the benefits
suzefactor: computer, office furniture, windows, inboxes, staplers that don't work, pens that don't write, napkins that don't dry, coffe cups full of coffee with no time to drink. just call your desk the new sledge-o-matic.
mom @ work: lol. that's good one...hmm, I can't see the top of my sledgeomatic
suzefactor: so sledge away.
suzefactor: better yet, get a flame thrower. can't see the desk? burn it down.
mom @ work: I haven't even had time to eat. Just made a fresh pot o coffee, tossed out that 1/2 breed shit they make here and some REAL coffee
mom @ work: My lighter is sitting right here. very tempting
suzefactor: lighter and a can of hairspray, that's all you need. but wait until jimmy comes back. that way, you can turn the torch on him and because alcohol is flammable, watch him burn from the inside out.
suzefactor: all the while making the carrie face when she's drenched in blood and closing the gym doors and torching stuff with her mind.
mom @ work: good grief. maybe we're a bit hostile. maybe we have some minor issues. lol
suzefactor: hahaha, it's all for a good laugh.

too funny not to post about.

wes, displaying his characteristic lack of common sense, decided he was going to park his little kia spectra in the 15 or so inches of piled up snow across from my dad's house. when i pulled up he had one tire wedged in the snow, spinning. by the time i went into my parent's house, he had two tires in the snow. then, my stepmom went out to help him, and it appeared they would meet their goal of getting him completely stuck, as it appeared all 4 tires were headed directly for the snow.

i had to laugh. he almost ran her over too. i laughed and went inside.

they just came back in. apparently, they got him out. damn.

sometimes my dad is the coolest.

today has not been good. i've been extremely under the weather. fatigue, chills, stomachache, gastrointestinal distress, you name it. my dad told me at 11:30 to go eat, go home, and nap, and to come back at 1:30. he called me at 1:20 and told me to come back at 3. unfortunately, since i woke up at 1:15, i haven't been able to go back to sleep. but still, it's nice to sit at home and relax since i feel like funk.

apparently, i can no longer digest spinach.

i have more to say, but i think i'm going to go lay back down with my keetasan.

Recommend to me:

1) A movie.

2) A book.

3) A musical artist, song, or album.

4) A LJ user not on my friends list.

5) Something to do in the next two months

the answers to this should be interesting.

...i like to think of myself as a pretty reasonable person, most of the time. i try not to sweat small things. one thing i do sweat, however, is bad weather and bad driving conditions. yeah, we got 8 fresh inches of snow up here. enough to make my mother decide she was going to drive over here instead of home to lansing.

here's my sticking point...

...you'd figure if it took someone 2 hours to get to work, during which they almost hit another car on 696 AND ended up on the median on 275, that they'd probably not want to fuck around, and would want to come home after work.

...you'd also figure that, like the rest of the population in weather like this, they wouldn't want to drive unless it was absolutely necessary, especially considering said someone left their cell phone at home.

nope. wouldn't know anyone like that. however, i do know someone who decided that he wanted to go to the auto show and to the casino after work, even though i got uptight as hell about it. yeah...that 7 or 8 o clock you said you'd be home by...passed hours ago. i have no way to get ahold of him. he said he'd call with his friend's cell phone number. he called, it went straight to voicemail, he didn't leave a number. thus, i HAVE no number to try to track him down at.

so, let's review. a. out in shitty weather with no phone. b. much later than promised, with no call, and no way to be reached. c. probably drinking.

smart. real smart.

but nope. i'm not going to say one fucking word. not one. i refuse to blow up about this, even though that's probably where i'm headed. i'm wide awake. and it's past my bedtime.

oh, and it's cool i can't use my computer because once again there's a hardware failure, right? fuck this. i'm going to use my next commission check to actually buy a computer with WORKING PIECES.

this weekend has been really nice; my mom came on friday night because she was getting pissed at her housemates and their dogs and everything else (she's got seasonal affective disorder, so basically everything pisses her off in the winter, or worse, makes her cry). besides, my apartment is like, the black hole of laziness. so, she came friday, we rented confidence, and got some eastside mario's carryout. relaxed, watched movie, etc. etc. yesterday she decided she didn't want to go home, made me breakfast, and hung out with me all day. i helped her with her business webpage, hence my "i hate network solutions account manager" away message. we made meatloaf, homemade mashed potatoes, etc. for dinner, it was damn good. watched teevee, relaxed, etc. i also played true crime for awhile, and showed her how i got to run people over and such, and she laughed hysterically, causing me to laugh so hard i actually did wet my pants. we laughed until we were both red in the face, with tears streaming out of our eyes. she's here still, she's just going to go to work in the morning from my apartment, which actually is about 60 miles closer to her work than the house in dewitt. i love it when she comes, we have the greatest time, and i'm always sad when she leaves. she seems to think she pesters me, but in all reality, she brings my spirits up, gives me encouragement, and motivation.

so, lately, i've been thinking a lot about wes and i getting a house, and how we're to accomplish that, and where at. it's become a fantasy of mine, because i'm tired of walking up stairs to our apartment, having shitty neighbors, paying so much money for nothing, the list goes on and on. and i've been thinking about laura's house. at first, i was like, no way. screw that. because it wasn't what i had in mind. the house needs a lot of work. it doesn't have, and probably will never have, city water. it's too much money for too little space (market value of her 2 bedroom 1 bathroom house is roundabout $150K, because it's in west bloomfield). but lately, it's become an obsession. i want that house. it needs work, yes. but that area DOES NOT and HAS NOT ever depreciated. my dad's tiny little house that's lake front that he paid less than $150K for in 1987 is now worth over $375K. and it's still a tiny, shitty cottage. not to mention, walled lake schools are some of the top schools in the state. WEST FREAKING BLOOMFIELD, for christs sake. it's got a lot big enough to expand on, two bedrooms, an attached garage, 2 driveways, a front and backyard, and a jacuzzi outside. inside, however, it needs a lot of work. the carpet is destroyed, the walls are all bashed in and scratched up because of her wheelchair, the doors are broken, the millwork and cabinetry is old, gross, and needs replacing. the house smells. it has no air conditioning. and no freaking city water. BUT. the kitchen floor was just replaced. the oven was just replaced. the fridge is mostly new, has a water thingy in the door, and is not well water. this house, which is only going to go up in value, could very well be our dream house. it's in the same neighborhood as my father's house, and his wife is more than likely going to quit her job to take care of the baby when i go back to work.

aye, heres the rub. wes is very skeptical of how much money we'll have to pay, what arrangements we have to make, and how much money we'll be into my dad for. for everything i say that's positive, he's like...money. for every dream i have, and every hope and thought i have for improvements, he says....paperwork and money. legalese. what about doing it this way, what about that way. well, all i know is what my dad tells me. i don't know anything about mortgages, land contracts, reverse equity, rent to own yadda yadda, anything. so he's got to talk to my dad about it. makes my head hurt.

anyway, one of my dreams is on the verge of coming true, with a little bit of work. i'm excited. blah blah blah. moving into a house that will one day be our own at 22. my god. and that's if we can get her out of there in time for us to move out in october or november, which is likely.

anyway. i need some taco bell and some mom chat.
