The more Sara, the better!

Daily dribble about life, pets, coupons and of course NKOTB!

I may have a problem

With air fresheners, and candles and the like…

What? I like things to smell good.. esp when i have pets.

Scoured the house for all of them tonight, mind you this is one of those reusable grocery bags, and its more than half -ish full…

Also I found Ellie’s old halloween costume which she has outgrown, but it fits JuJu!

Managed to get JuJu’s wiggly tooth out! I bet she feels a whoooole lot better now, she was chewing on EVERYTHING.

Jon Hamm is on Jimmy Fallon tonight. YUM. β™₯

Cant wait for tomorrow’s work day to be over, I need to get some pet food, try to find at least 1 more cat carrier, and take ellie over to the new place along with small things I can carry easily.

When I was there today, someone was in my “reserved” parking spot. Hopefully this isn’t a pattern.

Argh, its 12:18 way past my bed time. night!!!!


Spaaaace Baaaaags

I promise i’ll stop bitching soon about the move and all.. just a few more days i promise! then you’ll have to hear about my unpacking woe’s LOL.

I feel like I’m not making as much progress as I should be, but I did a lot in the beginning so now it’s all little things. I did 90% of my closet today, my shoes yesterday, the rest of the knick knacks in my bedroom..

Baaaags frrommmm spaaaaaace

Was going to run to Walgreens earlier to get some more space bags, but the neighbors were outside, parked illegally, and I did not want to give up my “open” space. So that’ll have to wait till tomorrow I guess.

Here’s a space bag filled with.. ohh.. 1/4 of my closet maybe? SO convenient!

Mom transferred the money today so after work I went and got the cashiers check for tomorrow. Must.Not.Lose. lol would be no bueno!!

Cant wait till I get those keys in my hands, may even take a few things over tomorrow evening, just cuz. Gotta take Ellie over to get her used to it, she gets so nervous when we move.

The puppy was driving me batshitcrazy tonight, shes got a loose canine tooth on her bottom left and Im sure its hurting her since her big girl tooth is already in, the baby tooths literally hanging there and we cant pull it out yet, so she insists on chewing on everything, including the wood beams that support my bed. GAWD. So i had to keep dragging her out from under my bed, then she destroyed the living room/cat toy, it goes back together easily but still. Those are all her toys strewn about…. I cant watch her 24/7. Gonna suck for her when we’re gone, Josh’ll actually have to be home to take care of HIS dog.

Had some drama at work today, but Ill leave that post for another day when I’ve calmed down a lil, dont wanna get myself all worked up before bedtime anyways.

Ugh! I shoulda been asleep 45 mins ago! time for me to sign off!!



This will be my 3100th post.. Not here of course, but since I started with VOX. That’s a lot right? kinda? maybe? Over 3-4 years I believe…. Nice number though.

Still Tuesday, still have things left to pack. Not a LOT, but enough.
Think i will start on my clothes/shoes tonight.

Got a hold of the leasing company today, wanted to sign my papers Friday, however I could not have time off work Friday because 2 other ppl are already gone that day, So I had to reschedule to Thursday, which is fine except I wont have money at 4:30 Thursday, I’ll have it at 6:15 Thursday. UGH. The amount they gave me for upfront fees was outrageous, $1250!!! For first months rent, the remainder of the deposit, and the pet deposit! WHAAAAT. I assumed that Sept would be pro-rated, but the way THEY do it is to pay 1st months up front w/deposits and then the 2nd months is pro-rated.. Ok well.. argh.. more than I expected to pay. So I asked if the Pet Deposit could be paid with Octobers rent and they were fine with that, PHEW!! So now I only need $900 on Thursday, so of course I called trusty MOM. lol, explained it all to her, and that she’ll get $600 of it back on Friday, and the rest… next check-ish. . .

So i get to leave work at 3:30 Thursday and go get everything taken care of. Yay, Finally! I’m SO READY to be done already. Last night I did almost all of the kitchen, and then today Josh texts me asking where HIS silverware are… so I said on the box on top of the table… and then he said “well where’s all the pots and pans because i DID have some before you moved in you realize this, I think you need to look back over your stuff and only take your things” So I said, “I know whats mine and what’s yours, TRUST ME, the purple box underneath YOUR silverware is all your pots and pans, I was planning on putting it all away for you, but go right ahead”. So he says “ok just making sure and i think the silverware thing is mine too, dont wanna be left with less than what i had”. I said yup the silver thing YOUR silverware is in is yours, the green plastic one I’ve had for 9 years.

It seriously took all i had to not go batshitcrazy via texts over all that. He just doesnt know how to ask a question with out it being a STATEMENT or accusation or demeaning. Drives me fuckin crazy.
Of course he didnt put his shit away its still sitting on top of the table, when I got home him and Tasha are here, why? Really? Cant go to her house? There’s obv a lot going on here, boxes everywhere there doesn’t need to be more people in the house.

Sean, Tyler and Corrine are supposed to help me on Saturday, hopefully they all follow through. *crossing fingers*

My friend Veronica who still works for Comcast got me a hookup on cable and internet, getting installed this Saturday with a free hd-dvr, yay! Ill finally get to use my tv to its fullest extent! No more stolen cable and half assed fuzzy channels!

Remembered its my friends bday party on Saturday and she’s here from Georgia so I must go to that, somehow and miss bingo sadly, but I wanna see her so it’ll be okay. Hopefully I wont be a walking zombie by then!

Well it looks like they left for a bit.. i better go get stuff started while I can.


Making Progress

Up to 11 boxes packed so far! Go Me!

I would –should- have more but Ive had this awful stomach pain

First it started with feeling nauseous after taking my medicine that said “take with a meal” apparently pop-tarts are not enough of a meal… I got rid of my headache, and then the horrible pains started. It feels like my abdomen is full of air. It moves around depending on what position I’m sitting/laying in and it hurts like a bitch. I’ve tried Ginger Ale, no relief. Some pepto.. not helping, and Root Beer, which IS making me burp a lot so that MAY be helping some..

Dang it’s already 6pm! So much of my day wasted by pain! Super-lame-o

I need to start on all the knick-knacks in the living room and my vintage CareBear stuff.
I’d also like to purchase some more space bags to make moving clothes and what not a lil easier… I have some that I used on blankets and sweaters and scarves a few months ago.. gotta do some price checking!

Man I feel like I have Tanyas bad stomach juju and Jess’s pregnancy stomach all in one. Oh and I got my period today as well, that was unexpectedly UNawesome. Jess says that will give me more time to concentrate on packing and moving instead of on boys… I think she’s full of it (=

I better do at least one more box and make it an even 12 before I get in the shower it’s BINGO night! I hope we win, I don’t have a lot of money to spend tonight, and hopefully I feel better by then…


Is it STILL Friday? This is like the never ending day..

Work sucked we were busy as hell, people were more rude than usual, and I got yelled at like 4 times. A few times I had to walk away from my desk to prevent from punching someone.

Ive still got the headache I started with this AM.

After breaking my blender, I decided to start on my packing, and I got 6 boxes done! They only consist of movies/dvd’s/ and my wiiiiiiii stuff. But it counts. There’s more boxes out in the garage that I need to get down from the rafters tomorrow when it’s light out. I found the replacement thingy for my blender at walmart for $10.88.. online at least. Imma see what the price is in store, if its more than that, site to store shipping is free.. but either way will have to wait till payday at least.

Ive got nothing else going on tomorrow so i’m thinking I should be able to get a lot done… should.

I was re-reading over the ad for the apt, i didnt realize it had a skylight in it lol.. and it doesnt say anything about paying for any utilities, nor about any that are included..Β  so we’ll see what they say when I go in next week to sign the papers. Hoping for most if not all to be included since it IS a condo they usually include water/sewer/trash at LEAST.

I’m so ready to go though, josh and his gf were arguing after they got home from the bar until 3am. Woke and KEPT me up. argh. Sean however fell asleep passed out on the couch and didnt hear any of it. He shoulda just came to my room lol..

Kisa and Twitch have both lost their collars somewhere in the house.. need to find them soon, probably under a bed or stuck under something.

The Dr gave me some ointment yesterday to try and clear up my skin, and it looks like it was working already, I wasnt as red and blotchy this AM so thats a plus! I just have to get in the routine of using it twice a day, i’m not big on washing my makeup off at night, I know i know, horrible. Which reminds me I should wash my pillow cases this weekend.

Ok I’ve had enough time for bed and cuddle time with my kitties. Theyre gonna be super stressed out when the moving starts…



Man I thought I procrastinated on packing for the cruise, i leave tomorrow at 6:55 pm, and I started packing tonight at 10pm. oy vey!

Took me about 15 minutes to find my camera charger (was in my purse the whole time for some reason) if I could only find the cord for my blackberry to the 'puter i'd be in business… dunno where it is though…

Cleaned the bathroom, filled up the cat food bowl, and cleaned out the litter box.

Josh and I (mostly josh) bbq'd some burgers and corn on the cob tonight YUMMY.
and I made some ranch and bacon pasta salad as well.

Hopefully, i dont forget anything this time either.
I'm burning a few cd's right now so that I'll have something to listen to in the rental car.

NKOTB of course, and some other random things.

I wanna take a shower tonight so Ill be mostly ready for tomorrow, just need to throw everything extra in the suitcase and get to work. At least when I come back I have an extra day just to chill at home before I have to go back to work. That'll be nice.

I'm excited to see Melissa and Jenny and my grammas new doggie.. oh and the family of course. Der. lol. I hope mom takes me shopping!

Goodbye Weekend

Ahhhhh I feel like I've finally gotten stuff accomplished.
See my stack of boxes!

I didnt wake up till about 10:30 today so I had a late-ish start… but the kitchen is all packed aside from food. (and being cleaned)

The bathroom is empty except for stuff I need to get ready. (and being cleaned)

And I took all my extra clothes and miscellaneous stuff over to the new place.

I need to clear off the coffee table, most of it is crap and will be thrown away or is paperwork that needs to be sorted through. And get my printer/computer stuff organized and boxed up. For some reason i have like 12 pairs of shoes underneath my coffee table. I dunno why. LoL.

I won $10 gift card at Bingo Saturday night go me! and the *mad chatter* as we now call him was there and was annoying as FUCK. and was trying SO HARD to get in my pants. If he'd just shut up he may have had a chance. Corrine saved my ass though, as we were leaving she was like "Do you work in the AM??" i was like YES!! AT MACYS!!! (i didnt but it worked in my favor). I'm hoping he gets the clue soon and goes away. He started texting me yesterday again just blah blah blah

Yes that is the song for right now. Blah Blah Blah!!

I met another new guy Sunday, lets just say, he was cuter in his picture, with a hat on, without his sunglasses. He asked if he could take me out for drinks sometime, so I said sure why not. Ill give him a second chance as well.

Why am I so nice to complete strangers outside of work? LoL Makes no sense, I know.

Stephy was supposed to be scheduled to be induced tomorrow, but now they said "lets just wait till he's ready". Oy Vey! Stressful!!

I shoulda gone to Josh's tonight to start painting my bedroom, but, the Egyptian came over instead, much better choice! He was in Cali this weekend with his family/gf lol… soon as he gets back he calls me.. what gives LOL. Hey whatever, works for me! I got what I needed! Which means Ill probably have to go paint weds night, thats my only free night this week, unless I do it after I leave macy's at 9 oy vey.

I really wanna see "How to train your dragon" looks sooooo cute!

Getting up early tomorrow is gonna suck after sleeping in the last 4 days… I'd wake up early for some reason, and then pass back out till 9 or 10, was very nice!!

Man, it's 11 already.. I'm tired, yet theres stuff to do. The mt dew & malibu an hour ago prolly didnt help too much… oh well.

Proud of myself I havent talked to NC since the other day, trust me I've been very tempted. I dont know how long it will last. I'd hope that HE WOULD TEXT ME or something. Damn. Oh, and I saw her facebook, she's not *that* cute.. *shrugs*. lol i'm not stalking I swear.

Making progress

I got a lot done yesterday
Today, I need to get MORE done

I've got a pile of laundry on my bed that either needs to be hung up, or packed.
The dishwasher needs to be turned on, but I know there's at least 1 fork under my bed, but I can't reach it, that will have to be washed later. Noticed my missing boot was under there too… I swear I live with raccoons or ferrets who steal shit and hide it, not cats and a dog.

It looks nice outside
Yet the windchill is a BITCH.
It was supposed to snow last night, but it didnt! YAY! It kinda sprinkled a lil rain, and moved the heck on!!
It'd be super if the foot of snow would melt by next friday, would making moving so much easier. Because then we can just transfer stuff over the balcony instead of out the hall through the foyer and down the steps.

Went to 7-11 this am to get a coffee and blueberry muffin. Yummy.
Now that i've fucked around online and seen everything there is to see, I should get productive.

Oh, hung out with Mike last night (dude with the kids) or as we now call him GVR, for he lives in Green Valley Ranch.
Ive known him for 2 years, never went to his house til last night. It was very cute, and the kids were not there, even though they're adorable. They would have cut into our "adult time". LOL. He also showed me pics of his ex-wife. I always wondered what she looked like. Tall, skinny, Blonde, Pretty – but fucking psychotic. You could tell she was a lil crazy just from the pics LOL.

So after that I had a convo with Ron, trying to figure out why guys hang out with me vs their ex's. Because we're totally different in every way possible. I'm short, pudgy, and average – but i rock in bed. LOLOL oh and not psychotic. I'm not one of those girls who goes "why do you liiiiiike me tell me EVERYTHING" yet, I still wanna know , ya know! lol

Oh well it's bingo night yay for that, and the chatterbox from earlier this week is coming – why did i invite him? Me being polite i guess. He started texting me last night after I left GVR's and he's like 'wanna have some fun" im all "sorry, I just did" lol thinking hey, that'll turn him off maybe he'll leave me alone. But NOPE he didnt care. He's like "we can just take a shower and what not" . . . . yeah, no thanks buddy. I KNOW he's "expecting" sex tonight, and, If i get drunk enough I just might, as long as he just STFU. I told Josh to tell him tonight to stop talking LOL. And i'm supposed to tell his chick to stop biting him LOLOL. Oy vey.  I had to tell him last night my phone was dying, that finally got him to stop texting, surprisingly.  I really wanted to see the Egyptian yesterday, but when I texted him his response was "I"m in cali with my GF"… uhmm okay I should really be notified when booty calls go outta town!! lol common courtesy right! 

ABC's video player is not playing any sounds for me, so I cant watch my shows!! WTF!!! I thought maybe it was my 'puter, but I've restarted it… and comedy central's site was doing the same thing, NBC works fine. Can't totally be me then right?

I've been feeling a lil butthurt about NC lately, because ever since his new roommate moved in, I'm feelin a lil neglected!  I'm hoping that will wear off soon and we'll be back to chatting everyday and what not. I know he enjoys the company of someone being there, but I like the company of talking to you!! How upset can i be 1700 miles away right? He used to initiate all texts/convos/calls/voice chats, now I'm the one doing it. I dont like being the chaser-i much prefer being the chase-ee.

I think I'll put some music on, and go put my laundry away. I may even vacuum the bedroom and dismantle the bed, just to get it done.

4 Free Days!

I have officially started my 4-day weekend!!! WOOOHOOO! I took Friday off as a personal day, and then Monday is Cesar Chavez Day! 

Went downtown and took the test today for the Impound Lot – it was pretty effin hard!! But I think I did *ok* we'll see if I get an interview… and wtf would you be doing anything in regards to fractions at the impound?!  14/16 minus 3/4 = ??? I guessed 1/8… from what I hear, thats correct.

I was the first to finish the test and was done by 2:30 so I came home, and actually got productive!! I packed up 2 boxes!! Put sheets back on my bed, and did 2 loads of laundry, which reminds me I need to go pull the towels outta the dryer.

Other than Bingo, I have no plans for the weekend aside from packing and cleaning and possibly painting.

i NEED to call my leasing company tomorrow and see WTF is up they NEVER responded to me about being able to pro-rate april. not surprising, they have no sense of urgency for anything, and i contacted them over a month ago.

My Stephy is about to pop any day now, poor thing has high blood pressure and is swollen like a macys parade balloon, tuesday will be the day unless she gets worse or goes into labor this weekend.

I kinda wanna see Alice in Wonderland again….. and I def. wanna see She's outta my league, as well.

Need to remember to turn all my alarms off tonight so I can sleep in tomorrow!! For now, I've gotta feed the dog and myself…

Still sniffling

Stayed home again today, woke up feeling like poo, no sense in going to work if i already felt like crap, plus i didnt want to risk seeing my customer crush while I look like rudolph. My nose is all chapped super lame.  LOL.

I managed to pack ONE box today! All my VHS movies. Yes-i still have them, and still use them!! I do want to start copying them all to dvd since my mom gave me the vhs to dvd copier. After i move. …. Maybe i can pack up the dvd's tonight, or something else semi productive.

These germs really need to go away already. Day quil really isnt doin shit for me.. might have to pick something else up tomorrow. Plus I've had this knot in my back all day. Been unsuccessful at trying to stretch it out.. I dont want to throw my back out on top of all of this.

I'm supposed to work at Macy's tomorrow… oy vey. I have to go to DMV first though ARGH.

Guess I should take the dog out to pee… she's staring at me….
I think she's been happy I've been home most of the week, even though we havent been able to do anything…

I'm all caught up on The daily show, the colbert report, and jimmy fallon, As well as the office, greys anatomy, and parenthood. Should be getting some netflix tomorrow in the mail, that should keep me occupied through the weekend.

Can't wait for DWTS to start up, i hate how shows like ET and extra show all the behind the scenes stuff now, i want to be surprised when i watch the new season!

Theyre saying possible 1-3 inches of snow tomorrow? No thanks, ieep blowin through please!! ALMOST all the snow in front of my balcony has melted… i want it to all go away so that it will make moving easier…

aight i gtg the dog is growling at me !
