Never ending

Just got done with a 12 hour shift. I am going back in at 11 which is in 6 hours. Yippee. My enthusiasm to push any more snow is waning. Although at 2 AM, over time starts. Yes please. I’ve wanted to get some more writing done this week, but my schedule is just too all over the place for me to settle down and write anything major. Maybe this weekend……….

And when the sun does come out again for an extended period of time, look forward to longer posts. Until then you shall get short changed. Cheers.

A new addition

I’m officially an Aunt! Again! 7 times now (not counting others)! How magical. In proper celebratory fashion I am drinking a beer. I’m very excited to meet Helen Marie O’Sullivan one of these days very soon. The trip to NYC will have to be booked ASAP!

I’m tired as I plowed till 3 AM last night. I have no regular sleep pattern anymore! I love it. It is supposed to snow tonight and tomorrow so no late night partying for me. Keep a look out for a pic of HMO to appear on here in the next few days because I know you are all dying to see her.

Cheers!

Where did today go?

I was plowing and shoveling and ice melting for 18.5 hours yesterday and today. I can’t remember when I fell asleep. I was happily watching biggest loser eating food. And suddenly I was sitting in the chair sleeping and woke up and stumbled into my bed. I guess I slept for 6 hours or so. Maybe longer. Right now, I’m hoping I won’t have to go out tonight. There’s only a little bit of snow forecasted and it probably won’t happen.

So yeah, I’m out of it.

Pictures are all tagged and online!

If you go to the photo section now, you’ll see the rest of my pictures from Hawaii.

And I didn’t go out and plow last night. I woke up at 7:30 and the roads were all wet. I then went back to sleep and woke up at 11 to an inch of snow on the ground. It continues to snow and I will be going out tonight for sure unless it warms up and the snow melts. I doubt that will happen though.

Any who, check out those pictures!! They are sweet. Enjoy.

Oh ok, so everything is goofy.

I just tried to figure out about the picture deal on here. I even thought for a second that a photo actually posted but it was all a lie. So sad for you guys. You’ll have to just keep up with my writing I guess. It bothers me a lot more than it probably bothers you actually. And someone named Matthew should really get on top of sending me some software so it’s no longer an issue.

Any who………in better picture news, there are some photos up from our Hawaiian adventure up in the photos section! Yey. I posted about half of them or so. Maybe tonight I will continue my postings or it may wait till tomorrow. Snow will probably call me out for the night and I may be too tired.

I spent today recovering from Hawaii. It was so nice. I watched some telly, posted those pictures and even watched the keynote speech for macworld 2008. I really was interested to see what Apple was launching. I am sooooo getting the new OSX and the Time Capsule. Check it.

Well, there are about 2938473927 people at my house and I can’t hear myself think at all. Peace out.

Aloha and Mahalo Kalalau

We’re back from Hawaii! Wow, was it amazing down in the last state to join the Union. It feels like I was gone for a couple months with all that we did while there. So much hiking, camping, exploring, hosteling and a little bit of beer when we had the time. I don’t even know where to start. We got in this morning at 9:30 to Bend. We had an overnight flight, so my sleep positions were less than ideal. I foresee me heading to bed fairly early tonight and sleeping for about 7 days. Rest was kind of at a minimum the whole trip. At least quality sleep was. I could never get comfortable when we were camping and the hostel was a hostel. Enough said. But I hope tomorrow to MAYBE get some pictures up at various locations around the internet. And I will be writing more tomorrow as well. I’m happy to report that I have kept up my daily writing habit. Some of my journal entries were pretty short but I think I did a good job at logging all that happened everyday. It’ll be a nice memento for the trip for sure. Oh and we drew pictures too. I should scan some into my computer. Alright, I’m off to do some mundane activities that are bothering me right now, like cleaning the bathtub. Peace, love and pineapples.

4 years later

It’s weird. The last 4 years have felt like a lifetime, but at the same time, it feels like just yesterday I was walking into Atlantic House for the first time. Yup, it’s that day of the year where Colleen reflects back on London. The other day I was reading some old journal things from LDN and I really wasn’t totally happy the whole time. I was very depressed and sad and at the beginning had trouble connecting with people. But the last month there was unbelievable and the best time ever. There is not a single day, maybe not a single hour, that goes by that I don’t think of those 4 months. It’s pretty remarkable and I know you’re all tired of hearing me talk about it. But it was really that good for me. I still get chills when I hear people talking about London. Everyday I wish I was back. Now I know I’ve got a plan for it all, so I’m ok with not being there at the moment. But if the opportunity came to me to go there today I would. So, tonight I will drink some pints in honor of LDN, in honor of the greatest group of friends I’ve ever had, in honor of the good times to come. Everyone is welcome to raise a pint with me.

Oh, I just rocked a huge sudoku puzzle and it took me all day. But I feel pretty bad ass for finishing it. I think we’re going to a reggae show tonight. I don’t know, I just get calls and go. Oh and 2 days till Hawaii………….

Cheers kids.

Suprise adventure.

I am very ecstatic to report that I only consumed 2 beers out last night. Had I emptied in any more in my gullet I would have been in an interesting position when called in for work at midnight. I awoke to the alert sound on my phone going off. Apparently I was pretty tired and didn’t hear my boss call me. But I rolled over, talked and then got up and went out. I had been sleeping for about 40 minutes at that point so I was totally out of it. I managed to stay up without any problems. I worked until 5:30, came home and ate and actually WENT TO SLEEP. Like most of the day. I Ended up getting about 9 hours of sleep which I’m truly shocked about since I can never fall asleep during the day. Perhaps this was different since I didn’t really get any sleep before going out. The body is funny that way.

So yup. All rested up. We’re having some people over tonight for a little party. Nothing too crazy because I am not in the mood very much and neither is Tera. I developed a little bit of an illness this week (I’m going to guess from not eating much and sleeping the bare minimum) so drinking isn’t that great of an idea. I seriously doubt I will be called out tonight so I am very much looking forward to sleeping in tonight! Yes! A whole night of uninterrupted sleep with nothing to wake up for in the morning? God be praised.

So I am working on a new short story. I should have it finished by the time I leave for Hawaii (I can’t remember if I mentioned that yet), and I will hopefully be posting it. The other story is STILL OUT TO MY EDITOR. She’s about to be fired for slow response. Yeah, so gosh. Two stories this month when I never before wrote anything to be submitted before. It’s pretty exciting. This whole forcing myself to write everyday has been great. I hope you kids are enjoying it as well. It’s really improved my mental happiness and has given me something to focus on doing everyday.
Ok, I need to get ready for this party! Time to clean myself and the house! Cheers kids. Have a good weekend.

PS – I tried to put a picture up with this post and the picture thing is STILL not working. Jerks.
