My mom. Ah. She cracks me up. Here's a snippet of a convo we had on our cell phones today, while we were both driving.

Mom: 'Whoa! A big bird just came out of the ditch!!!'
Me: 'Wha?'
Mom: 'A bird, just came out of the ditch. Just flew up out of nowhere!!'
Me: 'Yeah?''
Mom: 'Like a quail or something. It had a long tail!!! Just flew up out of there!'
Me: 'Cool.'
Mom: 'But it wasn't an ostrich. I didn't see it, then it just flew up and in front of-'
Me: 'Wait, wait...did you just say it wasn't an ostrich? I don't think there are ostrich around here, mom. Do you know how BIG an ostrich is?'
Mom: 'Oh, yeah. Hahahahhahaha. I guess it wasn't an ostrich.'

I came to a realization, while pondering my new comeback.

I just don't want this particular journal anymore. I feel 'done' with it. I thought it was done.

And then when I thought about what I should do, it came to me. I'm going back to my first LJ. The very first one. I still have it, haven't written in it in years and years. But going back there, back to before I was really who I am now, it just sounds right. Full circle, you know?

Is it terribly silly that I am giving this so much thought?

So, if you're wondering who this person is that added you, add me back.

And so, now, I think this is really the end over here.

This makes me happy now.

So, after I asked dadateacher what to do, and gave it some thought, I think I may be returning.

I almost feel too stubborn to come back, as I said that I was leaving. But I just don't feel 'home' anywhere else. Lame, yes. Whatever.

Life's been okay. Busy. Hectic. School, work, home. Lather, rinse, repeat.

I don't know if I posted this before, but we got a new kitten. I named her Clementine. And now she's been missing for 2 weeks. I super sad :((( I don't think she's going to be coming back. She was only about 4 months old, and the cutest thing ever. I bet someone thought she was 'lost' and decided to 'save' her from the elements. Assholes. Ciara's sad. She keeps going to the door, and yelling out, "'Tine!"

Pregnancy's going well. I'm slowly crawling out of the Nausea Cave of Doom. I never threw up, but feeling like it sucks just as much. I'm huge, already, and have been for awhile. I need some new maternity clothes! I am not going to be able to wear the short supply I have for the next million months.

Ciara's good. Getting bigger, and saying crazy things. She's still as willful as ever.

So, life's well. Getting big, and feeling okay. Brian's been treating me so well. He gave me a card last night telling what a sexy pregnant lady I am, and how much he'd be lost without me. I got a bit teary eyed! ;) Like I do at everything lately. Seriously. I even cry when I hear sad songs on the radio! LOL.


Long time, no post. [

I know I haven't posted in forever, and I don't plan on coming back here to post (I'm on Vox if you want to reach me), but I wanted to share some happy news with you guys :)

Click here for joy!Collapse )

I was on the fence for a bit, but I came to a realization.

If I can't have change in real life, I need a change in my internet life.

I'm moving on from this journal.

I've been here since the day I found out I was pregnant with Ciara (9/18/2003). Before that, I was counterfeitkiss, and before that, collette. I've been at Livejournal since 3/22/2001. Far too long, if you ask me. But that's me. I hate change. Either I am far too loyal, or far too lazy. Maybe a bit of both.

I have found myself, and lost myself here. I need to move on. I have been needing to for awhile now.

So, my new journal is over HERE. If you'd like to add me there, I'd love for you to. If not, that's okay, too.

I'll be keeping this journal open, so that I can keep track of anyone that sticks around here.

Much love.

Ciara is no longer calling me 'Mom'. I am now 'Mommy'.

When I picked her up on Saturday from my parent's, she ran up and squeeled, "Mommy!!!"

She sounds like such a child now. Not a baby, anymore.

Today is a bit better than yesterday. Although, I am putting my homework off terribly. It'll get done, it'll get done.

Look at the cute kitty we're probably getting next week!!


Ciara needs a teeny one. Kirby's too old and boring. Sorry, Kirby.

I'm making a couple loaves of banana bread tonight. I have way too many frozen bananas in my freezer. Out they must go! I'm making a banana walnut poppyseed, and just a plain banana one with almond extract. I haven't made anything with almost extract, but it sounds nice.

Going to watch 'Everything Is Illuminated' tonight. Heee. Funny looking!Elijah ;D

I didn't get home from work until 4:30 AM earlier today. Ha. I was off at 11PM, the night before. I was planning on staying up, and just napping if I needed to during the day, but Ciara called at 5:30AM for my boobs, and then it was all over when I laid down.

I've done absolutely nothing today, and I feel dirty. I need a shower and a new head. Mine hurts entirely too much. I'm considering getting myself a raspberry (vodka) lemonade, and taking a long bath.

I'm considering moving my LJ. Not really after all this breastfeeding icon stuff, but I've been thinking about it for awhile, and just needed a push.

We'll see. I feel like a change.

May 13-16 2006 012

Recently I've been feeling a desperate need to get out of here. To move. To leave. Every few months I get it. I just feel so weighted down. Responsibility is hard to deal with, sometimes.

OK! I uploaded that silly video to another place. That other site can kiss my ass.

SO! Go HERE to see Ciara exclaiming, "Oh my God!"



I checked it and it's working this time! ;)

A video of my sweet, precious daughter saying, "Oh my God!" (39 seconds)


ETA: It's not showing up with any volume on that page, on my computer. Is that just me, being a douche?

Ciara's party went well, even if my mom was sick and didn't come, my dad only stopped by for a bit, and Devon, Marie and Malia never came or called to let us know they weren't coming. My sister, aunt and uncle came, which was nice :) We all hung out, chatted, and ate. Ciara ran around like crazy, playing with all her toys. She got a Cabbage Patch doll that came with a tea set and she was in heaven. LOL. She played with that tea set for a hour, I think.

Brian blew up a ton of balloons, so Ciara kicked those around all day.

We also got her pictures taken in the morning. She was SO FUNNY. The poor first guy that was going to take her pictures. She was running around like nuts, and laughing and wouldn't sit still for anything. He's all, "Uhhh...Ciara....hey....uhmm." LOL. He had to go get some other chick, because he couldn't take her pictures. We got a few cute ones, but nothing that I'd say were amazing. Worth the $30 I spent on them, I suppose, though.

It's hot as hell today, and I really don't feel like going into work. I want to clean up this mess, but I don't feel like wasting the small time I have before work doing that. Maybe tonight. Or tomorrow.

MoreCollapse )

Ciara was entertaining everyone while we were taking pictures. There were Brian and I chasing her around and tossing her about. The two picture people. And all the people in the waiting room came and stood by the door to watch Ciara run circles around us all. She'd stop every few minutes and point at Brian, give him a stern look, and say seriously, "Stop it." Haha. Everyone thought she was hilarious.

Balls. I woke up late AGAIN! After laying in bed from 7:30-8:45AM and telling myself I'd get out of bed at 9. Instead, I wake up at noon with Ciara sleeping on my face. Dammit! And I have stuff to do.

Random rant:

And you know what I think is fucked up? The government monitoring everyone's phone calls. But you know what creeps me out even more? The amount of people who think, "Well, I don't have anything to hide, so I don't mind if they listen to my phone calls!!"

HELLO? You don't mind if your government spies on you? Yeah, I'm sure it's all for your 'safety'. They're 'protecting' you, so they have to slowly take away your rights. FUCK THAT. What happened to this country? Not that it was ever that great in the first place, but the ideas are there. People just allow the government to do whatever they want, and they think it's ok, it's to protect teh nation against the ev0l terrorists!!

If you think it's okay for the government to monitor your phone calls to protect you, kindly take yourself off of my friends list, because you are fucking idiot.

ETA: Oh, and you know how investigators were going to look into the NSA and all of this spying? Well, they decided to drop that, because the government won't give them access to the information! How the fuck does this happen? We just stop all investigation altogether, because we don't have security clearance. Oh, ok. Go on as you please, government. Sorry for bothering you! :)

And now Congress says they're not going to take any shit and they're going to look into it. YEAH FUCKING RIGHT. I'd like to see Congress do anything that goes against this President.


Post whore again. [

[ mood | worried ]

I actually did my homework last night, that was due today. Ahhh, how lovely it feels to have homework done early. Now I can do nothing, and not feel so guity about it. I should do my homework early more often.

Ciara and I went to Subway for lunch. I got her a turkey deli, and now she's happily munching away on it. She's eating more and more foods now. It's nice.

We also rented some movies tonight. Pride and Prejudice and The New World. I've been wanting to see both really bad. Gotta do a lot of cleaning tonight, then go to the gym at 9. I hate going to the gym in the early evening. Too many people there. I have to wait for machines and people stare at me. Last time when I was there at 10PM, I was the only one in the whole part of the gym. It was nice. I could try out new machines that I'm too afraid to use when other people are there, for fear of not using it right and looking like a tard.

Ciara's got pictures coming up on Sunday. It's so weird seeing how much she's grown since last year. She was just learning to walk then, and now she's running and talking and so funny.

It's almost 5. How'd that happen. Oh, maybe because we slept past noon. Again. I need to get my sleeping in order. I stay up too late and sleep even later.

This morning started out LOVELY for me.

At 7:30AM Ciara comes in and goes, "Hereherehereherehereherehere!!!!" to me, while I'm passed out in bed. I crack open my eyes to see her handing me her diaper.

So, I get up to change her, get her some pants and shoes. I walk past the computer room and see...


Brian had left the computer chair by the desk (BIG NO NO!!). So, she climbed up on it, pulled all the bills off and crinkled them into tiny balls. Got my wallet and pulled out all my receipts, my checkbook, and all my cards and tossed them around like confetti. She then discovered that I had been lazy and left my Caboodle with all my nail polish out on top of the desk (I painted my toenails at 3AM. LOL). She pulled that down and got out all my nail polishes, all the cotton balls. EVERYTHING was mixed with everything. It was like some terribly fucked melting pot of shit.

So, I am like "WTF THANKSSSSSSSS" and I proceed to bend down and pick some of it up.

She then decides to make things even more amusing by standing and PEEING ON THE COMPUTER CHAIR!!!



ETA: Ciara's said "Oh my God, " twice this morning. Where did she pick that up?? :\

On Monday night, I was mixing a bottle of Zithromax up, and talking to Tiffany at the same time. Bad idea.

While I was shaking it up, it slipped out of my hand and hit me in the face really hard. Haha. Tiffany laughed at me for a couple minutes.

Only I do shit like that. I am so clumsy.

OH! And I made some Rice Krispie treats and brought them in to work (so I wouldn't sit on my ass and eat them all at home). Leslie proceeds to tell everyone at work that I made them with my breastmilk. No one would eat my tasty treats :(

Ciara's birthday party is planned for this Sunday AT OUR HOUSE. Shit! Do you realize what this means!? I have to clean like a mofo. And plan appetizers and other crap like that. On top of decorating. And I only have 2 days off, and I work Friday and Saturday! This is cutting it close. And so instead of cleaning, or maybe working on my 1,000 page essay right now, I decided a picture post would be the best use of my time.

Baby and a side of orange chickenCollapse )


Doll stuff again. [

LOL. Ciara just brought her baby in to me, and pointed to its' butt. She goes, "Baby. Ew!" And I ask her, "Did your baby poop?"

She runs in and puts the baby on the bed, where I usually change her. And she comes out and goes, "Here!" And points at the baby.

Ciara plays with her baby doll now. All of a sudden, she just started picking it up, and toting it around. She brings a blanket with it, and lays it down for a nap in the silliest places. On her stool, on the floor. Never in a comfortable spot. Her baby's hardcore.

Today, I was all, "Where's your baby??!" and she goes, "BABY!" and runs off to get it. Brings it back, and I ask her, "Do you love your baby?" And she gives it the sweetest kiss, and then hugs it tightly. Tosses it in her shopping cart, raises her arm and says, "BYE!" and runs off. SO CUTE.

It's strange to see how many people look at my LJ. Some of the same people come almost every day, and they aren't even on my friends list.

Someone from Boring, Oregon. And Milwauki, Oregon.

Someone from LA.

Who lives in Reston, Virginia? They like me a lot.

You guys should friend me, instead of reading me seekritly.

ETA: LOL. And this person checkin' out my info -

Location: Abu Dhabi, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates
Hostname: we22214.alshamil.net.ae (
