ice ice baby

It iced last night. I tired to go outside in my penguin pants and take pictures but it was my camera who ran out of juice. I was all about it, but canon wanted to be plugged it. Battery Smattery. Here are some pictures from last night:

I think my backyard bar lights give off a romantic icy glow. Makes you want to snuggle doesn't it. Or in my case snuggle with a bottle of wine. When I woke up this morning my whole house was really still. Like the freshly falling snow in the woods still. I laid there looking out my window. Couldn't see screen was frozen. I got up and went to my balcony door. Started to unlock and then LUCKLY remembered my alarm system. Turned that off and then took these pictures:

It's cold outside. Alas...I am here while everyone else is home. But in all reality what else would I do. I would be bored at home. I never thought I would admit that.

My Little Ponies

My niece is turning 2 on the 27th of January. Last night I called my mom to talk about a reciepe and she launched into how she had gotten out my My Little Ponies and cleaned them all up for Reese to let her play with. This morning I got to work and my mom had emailed me photos of the "cleaned" up ponies. She washed their hair and styled them so they are all pretty. Just looking at them made me so happy and reminded me of how simple things were. My biggest worries were what Barbie was going to wear or which My Little Pony was going to go in which stable. Here are the pictures!

Yolk On My Face

I made an egg in the microwave like I do every morning. Yes it works. Crack the egg in a bowl/mug...40 secs later you have a perfectly good egg. Well today for some reason 40 secs was a little too long. I pulled it out and stuck my spoon in to stir up the runny yoke and


The egg exploded in my face. I'm very happy I was:

1. Wearing my glasses. They had egg bits all over them vs. my eye balls.
2. I didn't stick my whole face into the mug.

and most importantly...

3. That no one else was in the kitchen when it happened.

The only problem now besides the fear of exploding eggs now is my check hurts were a burning piece of yolk burnt me.

I'm Falling

For the past 3 nights I have woken up because I am falling in my dreams. Last night was REALLY bad and I almost fell out of bed b/c I was moving my whole body around trying to save myself. I looked up the dream interpetation of falling online today. YIKES. Check this out:

Falling dreams are another theme that is quite common in the world of dreams. Contrary to a popular myth, you will not actually die if you do not wake up before your hit the ground during a fall.As with most common dream themes, falling is an indication of insecurities, instabilities, and anxieties. You are feeling overwhelmed and out of control in some situation in your waking life. This may reflect the way you feel in your relationship or in your work environment. You have lost your foothold and can not hang on or keep up with the hustle and bustle of daily life.�When you fall, there is nothing that you can hold on to. You more or less are forced toward this downward motion without any control. This lost of control may parallel a waking situation in your life. Falling dreams also often reflect a sense of failure or inferiority in some circumstance or situation. It may be the fear of failing in your job/school, loss of status, or failure in love.�You feel shameful and lack a sense of pride. You are unable to keep up with the status quo or that you don't measure up.According to Freudian theory, dreams of falling indicate that you are contemplating giving into a sexual urge or impulse. You maybe lacking indiscretion.Falling dreams typically occur during the first stage of sleep. Dreams in this stage are often accompanied by muscle spasms of the arms, legs, and the whole body. These sudden contractions, also known as myclonic jerks. Sometimes when we have these falling dreams, we feel our whole body jerk or twitch and we awaken from this jerk. It is thought that this jerking action is part of an arousal mechanism that allows the sleeper to awaken and become quickly alert and responsive to possible threats in the environment.According to biblical interpretations, dreams about falling have a negative overtone and suggest that man is acting and walking according to his own way of thinking and not those of the Lord.

I changed my desktop picture today to a pic from Greece. It reminds me of when I was so happy and realized how great life truely is. There is so much more to life, I have AMAZING friends from college that are my sisters in my heart and in my life. I miss them sometimes. Here is a pic from Christmas when we all went out in Tulsa.

tick tock look at the clock

This week is busy at work, but dragging. I keep thinking about the most random things. Food, money, working out, Mexico, people. Not sure why.

I guess I could do laundry tonight. But I would rather do all that jazz on the weekend. I don't like getting started on laundry and then having to stay up until 12 b/c I don't want to leave the stuff in the dryer. One of the new girls at work told me how she had just turned 29 last month, but still felt like she was 17. Made me start thinking. I still feel like I'm a teenager too. I KNOW I still act like it. Which makes me wonder maybe that is why no one takes me seriously. hmmm....

Sometimes I want to go back in time and change things, but then again I wouldn't be were I am if I hadn't made the choices I did. Everyone else's life looks so glamerous and carefree to me. So put together. They don't seem to have the same worries I do. Mine are silly and kind of sad. Like, "what am I going to do for food until the 15th? I'm broke...again" I just want to not worry so much. My birthday is coming up and I'm already worried that I will be stuck home alone again. It's on a Saturday this year so it will be hard to get friends to go out. My birthday is on Valentine's Day so the getting people to go out is hard and getting resturants to reserve a table that isn't for 2 is like pulling teeth. I hate it.

I want to go skiing. To bad I have no one to go skiing WITH. Wow! this has really turned into a Pity Party Table of One blog.
