    I’m not usually one for doing this, but…

    This year I am making actual resolutions.  Normally what happens is about 10 minutes before midnight I come up with something stupid that I have to do one year solid. A couple of examples was while at the old folks bar I use to hang out with, I decided that I would have to have a green olive every time I was there.  I hate green olives with a passion, so this would be hard to stick to. It was so hard when the bartenders there were my witness, so the moment I would walk into the place they would push an olive on a tooth pick for me and…

    this sums it up.

    This pretty much sums up our whole Christmas break. It was spent reading the Twilight Series. Dan brought the girls to see Twilight at the movies and Kara decided she needed to read the book.  She finished the book pretty fast, which is unlike her normal reading habits.  She became, shall we say, obsessed with it. When she finished reading it, she nudged it towards me and I was pretty dead set AGAINST reading it for the simple fact that she was obsessed with it and me not reading it would drive her absolutely, stark raving mad. She put the book on my bed and since I was bored I…

    You have officially seen it all now!

    Spending Christmas eve with my family was so beyond awesome. When I have a few minutes I will have to tell you stories about my crazy family, but right now…I’m getting ready for a photo shoot. As you can see, I dyed my hair brown.  Shaun doesn’t know what to think of it.  In fact, my whole family said NOTHING about it.  There was a new topic not to bring up at dinner.  Don’t talk about religion, politics OR Kristine’s hair color. 12 years ago I dyed my hair magenta. It was so dark, but in the sunlight it was a purple color.  When I walked into the house, Dan…

    He’s Perfect for me!

    It’s been awhile since I have been able to get my favorite part of Christmas, an ugly Christmas Tree! As mentioned on my blog, this year was sort of one of those ‘iffy years. We weren’t really even sure we would send out Christmas cards. Avoiding all the stores before Christmas, we snuck out around closing time to find a present for his office party. That’s when I saw they had Christmas trees for $9.99. Our normal Christmas tree usually cost between 40-60 bucks. My logical way of thinking was, “Since I hadn’t planed on getting a tree and since I’m spending so little to get a tree…it’s okay to…

    Another Random and Odd Christmas!

    We neglected to decorate for Christmas.  I mean, I put out a new door mat and there is a undecorated tree waiting at the front door to come in from the cold, but it hasn’t been decorated. We decided last minute to send Christmas cards.  We got the smallest amount possible because money is tight and it was going to be a ro-sham-bo on who filled them out and sent them.  I lost. They finally got to their destinations today and I felt it was time to share with all my OTHER family (that’s you guys). By the way, you all rock!  I’ve gotten more Christmas cards from readers than…

    Updated…

    My doctor called me last night. He said, “Stay on the antibiotics. Then we can put you on some more antibiotics. When that is done, we can put you on suppressant antibiotics.” What part of, “I AM SICK OF BEING ON ANTIBIOTICS!” did he not understand last Friday? If this is the bad boy of all antibiotics and the E Coli isn’t ‘high grade’ as I was told earlier, then why do I need to stay on antibiotics after this round of the shit that will kill anthrax and small pox?  Shouldn’t that be enough? Isn’t SIX months of antibiotics enough to kill this stuff? When is this going to…

    Yeeee!

    I’m still so freaking excited I can go home for Christmas! I’ve been checking the forecast of the weather.. :::high pitch squeal::: CHANCES OF SNOW! Found out something; When you’re searching for ‘street webcams’ for the area on cal-trans websites, you might need to make sure that the town you’re going to, HAS STREETS.  And also, if you’re looking at 11:30 at night, the web cams will be black. Just so you know.

    Chicken noodle soup.

    My mom, with her sensitive nose, use to refer to BO as, “Eww, that man smells like Chicken Noodle Soup!” so now whenever I make it, the image of my mother’s crinkled up nose at some nasty old man with bad, bad, bad, BO comes to mind. Kara called this morning and said she needed a ride to Target to take pictures for the yearbook.  I peeked out the window and saw that it was cold.  I put on my long sleeve sweater, jeans, uggs, and a big long sweater over that and a wool hat.  The rush to pick her up and the lollygagging around Target made me heat…

    Clusterfucked Royale

    I’ve mentioned before how much I hate Kaiser Health right?  With that said, I got back my test results. I have E Coli. The doctor sent me the test results and I don’t know why, but didn’t give a damn explaination with them. Just says, more than 100,000 col/ml of the long name. In order to figure if my body was going to break out in a flesh eating e coli nightmare or if I can go frolic in the fallen leaves, I had to call the doctor to get some explanation on what the hell all that stuff meant. I gotta whole lotta Nadda. With that said…I’m going to…
