The more Sara, the better!

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

Wow I’m behind!

I’ve been thinking about posting, I swear! I’ve got no follow through these days I guess!

So let’s see…
There was New York

image

image

Then the NKOTB Cruise…

image

image

And of course Boston…

image

image

Those were all a blast! I absolutely fell in love with Boston and I can’t wait to go back!

Soon after was my birthday and some fun nights out…

image

image

image

And he told me he loved me, on my birthday (=

A few days later we went to Las Vegas for more NKOTB! And our first vacation together (we survived it!)

image

image

image

image

image

image

So now I’m back to reality, working just one job these days, still broke. Dad’s still living here driving me crazy but that’s a whole ‘nother post for another day.

Other wise all is well in my world!

Here’s a cute pic of Abbie (=

T Minus 9 days!!

woah 3 updates in 1 week?!

LoL.. so in 9 days, i’ll be headed to New York CITY!!! This years NKOTB cruise is leaving from there and heading to Bermuda!!

I’m so excited!! It’s been ridiculous trying to get prepared for this trip because I’ve been so busy with LIFE in general!

Luckily Brenda (my cruise roomie/canadian friend) has been helping out a lot.

I’m getting there the 3rd, staying at a hotel in New Jersey with a different previous cruise roomie, then boarding the boat on the 5th till the 9th! That day we’re spending the night in New York, then renting a car and driving up to BOSTON!!!!!!! for 3 1/2 days!

Soooooo excited, I’ve never been to any of these places before but I’m stoked to finally go!!

I’m definitely in need of this vacation no doubt about that! Tomorrow will be day 6 of 9 w/o a day off from both jobs, so Saturday i plan on sleeping in with my guy, and maybe taking the dogs to do something fun.

Tomorrow night I’m meeting up with my friend Natalie to make my masquerade mask for the ship, I’ve gotta still find time to pack, find my camera, chargers, and batteries! eeek! Oh and I still gotta find something to wear that signifies denver/colorado for one of the theme nights… so much to do!!

I was giving Justin a hard time about how much he’ll miss me while i’m gone, who will pick on him and give him shit?! LoL… did I ever mention I started seeing someone? Well I did, and for the last i dunno 2 months? it’s been really great!  So there’s that… (=

What’s goin on?

Ohh hey there, sorry I havent updated in a while! Whoops! Life’s been crazy busy here.

Work is still going good, I actually get Wednesdays off from both jobs so thats always something to look forward to. My schedule is pretty much 10-6 on the days that I work. I can handle that, not too early in the morning, and early enough in the evening so that I dont come home and fall right asleep. Those first few weeks were rough but now I’m used to the 40+ hours a week.

So my dad moved out here a few weeks ago, I wasn’t looking forward to it and it was really stressing me out.. but its surprisingly worked out so far. I was nice enough to let him stay with me, and gave up my bed so I’ve been sleeping on the couch for the last 2+ weeks… I hired 4 guys off craigslist to unload his (26′) moving truck into a storage unit. He’s managed to get around town via the bus, to social services, social security, grocery store etc.. so thats nice.

For whatever reason, he ended up bringing his 3 lil yappy dogs.. which like me a lot.. and 8 friggen cats… I finally convinced him that 8 was way too many and completely unmanageable.

cat bite
After I got bit by one of the cats in the moving truck, after they’d escaped, he decided on 4 of them to relinquish to the local shelter, the one I got Ellie and Sassy from. So that evening we took them down and did what was right. I figure they’ll more easily find a home in colorado than they would have in l.a. so its alright. I’ve been taking all his animals to work 2 at a time to get checked out and updated on vaccines. Better safe than sorry.

 

 

Since then, hes configured 2 dog kennels to house the 4 remaining cats, and because it snowed last week, I allowed it to be in my living room. He also fixed the rat cage so they cant chew through it and escape anymore.. and has been cleaning the house and cooking stuff. so thats not too bad in itself. Yesterday we took all the dogs to the dog park which was fun, the lil dogs had never been to a dog park or in that kind of social situation but they handled their own. The other nice thing is, I dont have to come rushing home to walk my dogs, or feed the cats n what not, because he’s here to do that.

Thats good because I’ve been hanging out with a new guy who stays up north, actually not far from work, for the last couple weeks. We get along really well, and seem to be enjoying each others company so that’s always nice. (= I met a few of his friends/acquaintances at the bar, and they had nothing but nice things to say about him.

Last week I finally was able to afford the tattoo I’ve wanted for the last year. My friend Chelsea did an amazing job drawing up what I wanted from a few different images and did some amazing color on it too. I love it! I was finally able to wear my work shoes again today since most of the swelling had gone down.

My graduation is coming up in a few weeks so my mom, step dad, and grandma are all going to come out for it. My grandmas never been on a flight longer than an hour and never been to denver so this will be fun for her! They’re only coming for about 2 full days and I dont know what I’ll have off from work other than my specific graduation day. We’ll see when the time comes.

I also booked my flight to NYC for the cruise couldnt pass up $129 non stop! Ive still gotta find a hotel to stay at, and decide if I’m going to boston afterwards with my roomie. I really want to! Just all about the money right now!  So if anyone has any hookups in NYC or Boston, please let me know!!

Welp I better wrap this up and get to bed… er, couch. Sigh. I miss my bed!!

This ends it

2013 has been a year of a few ups any many downs. I’m ready for it to be over and to have a clean slate for 2014.

It seemed for every up there were a few downs to bring my happiness crashing to the ground.

So let’s just focus on the positive things. Because I for one refuse to live in the past, I don’t know why anyone would want to.

1. Successfully finished school! Was even on the dean’s list at one point!
image

2. Assisted in actual surgeries during internship. Learned a ton of skills to do my job.
image

3. Went to Vegas for my birthday, spent time with my nk girls and saw an amazing concert.
image

4. Saw another nk concert from the 5th row and had the best after party with my Denver girls and Donnie.
image

5. Got a job that ties into my schooling, that pays well, is easy, and I get to interact with animals every weekend!

6. Thankfully got a new-to-me car from my mom that’s more reliable than the last and gets me everywhere I need to be.
image

7. Had the financial help from my family to keep me afloat and a roof over my head, pay for school, and keep my pets healthy.

8. Saw Joey McIntyre’s one man play, a few times, got some great pics with him, and spent wonderful bonding time with my friends.
image

9. Adopted some cutie patootie ratties!
image

10. Even though I didn’t get in shape, lose weight, or anything productive like that, I finally rid myself of 185 lbs of drama, bullshit, and lies.
image

11. Found a sweet sweet kitty who was abandoned, took her in, and almost 4 weeks later she’s still here.. my dad said she was magical and she just may be. Yesterday our vets office called to ask me to come in to interview for a job…which I didn’t apply for, was just having casual conversation with the Dr when I took Sassy in for her checkup about having finished school. Would be great way to start the year with a new job!
image

12. Cancelled my cable t.v.! Saving lots of money now and surprisingly surviving without my dvr lol

13.  Came to the realization that I’m worth more than I thought, that I deserve more and better than what I had, my friends are there for me when I really need them, I’m not crazy or overreacting when I listen to my instincts, and I’m capable of being OK by myself. Read the rest of this entry »

Vegas bound

Just dropped the girls off at day care and now I’m headed out to Vegas, by myself.
Not happy about that part but it’s out of my control now.
Looking forward to my birthday weekend with my girls and NKOTB!
Vegas here I come!

Vegas bound T minus 6 months!

Well I was able to purchase tix for the Vegas show, they weren’t NEARLY as close as I wanted.. I mean I’m used to being close enough to having sweat on me, but they’re good enough for now. There’s still plenty of time to find better ones online!

vegas

 

They always say “not a bad seat in the house” so that makes me feel a lil better.

Even better news, my friends Claudia and Charligne (from the cruise) decided to go to Vegas too! So we’ll have a fun filled birthday weekend! I’m stoked.

So I’ve got about 6 months to get my ass in gear, get in shape looking good, pay off cc’s and save some money!

Luckily I have $109 in Southwest credit so that’ll help for at least one ticket.

Plus plenty of time to find good rates on rooms. I’d really like to stay at Aria or Cosmo if possible. I know its the weekend following a holiday (july 4th) but I’d figure it wouldn’t still be too bad, since the holiday is in the middle of the week? I dunno. If worse comes to worse, I can ask my travel agent Aunt if she has any hookups.
