As I promised. . .

Okay guys. . . . this one is for you! Let's see, what have I been up to lately???? Oh, I just ordered tickets for Country Fest this year. . . going with dad and Kim, and for any of you that are interested---seriously, let me know. We got 2 camp sites and it should be lots of fun! Kris and Meg- do you remember that first year we went??? Wow, we really are getting old!
Got up today, went and ran errands. Funny how the local trip to WalMart can so easily end up being $200 dollars when you haven't gone grocery shopping for awhile! FYI- this post will be random and all over the place. . . much like my brain, did any of you get that forward that I emailed abt. why women can't sleep??? Yes, that is my head. ALL the time. I am ALMOST done with the 4th book of the Twilight series. I should have been done by now, but geesh, this is a fat one. Had my yearly physical earlier this month, and was told to start exercising. (did I spell that right?) Anyway, yes I know its healthy and good for me blah blah blah. I am either just plain sick of winter, getting burnt out on my job or yeah, I'm sure a combo of both. Work has been super slow lately. Dread even going. I did however purchase a lotto ticket last week, haven't checked it though. So who knows, I could be a millionaire!!! Wouldn't that be great!!
Kurt and I are still together. 4 1/2 months now! Things are going pretty well I have to say. A few bumps in the road, all part of still getting to know things abt. each other, likes/dislikes. . . etc. He is going to Jamaica sometime soon. Yeah, sooooo jealous! One thing I must say though. . . this is the slowest relationship I have ever been in. And I am totally NOT saying that is a bad thing. . . cuz for those of you who know me well, know that I move from "hi" to "when are we getting married" pretty quickly. . . .so this is different for me, but I am rolling with it day by day. Still no "I love yous" but hints and close calls. . . .
Finally gave the Jeep a bath last night on my way home from work. What a filthy little thing!
Laundry and cleaning the house seem to be on the rest of my "to-do" list today, all the crap that never gets finished bcuz it. . . just never does.
Oh, spring. Where art thou?
Um, yeah, gonna be 31 this year, what the????? Hunter wants another birthday party. WOW! I simply told her that Ellie and Miss Nora will have to celebrate theirs first. She was okay with that!
Excited to . . . . yeah, I forgot what I was excited abt. Hunter had a runny nose, got a Kleenex, came back to typing, and totally forgot what I was gonna write! WOW! Okay, so yeah, enuf for now. Lets see if I can find some pics to post! These are not in any particular order, just a few from the last couple months.

Umm, oh yeah! I am excited for The Bachelor tonight!!!!

A post long over due. . .

R u ready for a long one????

It has been over a week since I returned from Illinois visiting my sis! Need less to say, I think I am going to take a break from blogging for awhile. Too busy, not enough time, and the time that I do find here or there, I would rather not be in front of my computer. So, for awhile at least, there will be random posts here or there. I can't even keep caught up on reading them.
Last week was a long one, 2 funerals, a lot of emotions, bad moods, sad people. But we all pulled through. . . because what else could we possibly do?
So here are some pics from our trip. . . lets just say, that traveling in a car for 9 hrs. with a 2 yr. old is NOT what I expected. Bring the dvd player bcuz she WILL NOT sleep the whole way.
Oh, these pics are not in order. fyi.

Linds boyfriend Nate works at the Fire Station in Charleston, so needless to say, we took a trip there on the last day to see the fire engines and ambulance. You would not believe how heavy this hat is!!!!

Nate and Linds.

Linds and I in their "get up".

Nate has a Harley! So cool! We went riding one day for abt. an hr. I lost my bandana within the first 15 min. but I sucked it up. Next time I will make sure to tie it tighter! We drove to Indiana on Monday so that I could go to the Harley shop. The one in Illinois was closed. Who knew?? Still would have liked to have a shirt that said Effingham instead of Terre Haute. Just think it sounds cooler, ya know?

Nate and Linds have this huge trampoline in their backyard. . .Hunter loved it! We jumped around on it a couple days, but if the sun wasn't out, it was a bit cold. And windy!! Illinois doesn't have all the bluffs like we do around here.

We went out the very first day/night we arrived. Went to a bar that Linds compared to the Harbor around here. But a lot bigger, seemed a lot nicer, and a butt load more people there. They live pretty close to a college. College housing, and parties, NOT missing them anymore! I was dancing on stage and Linds wouldn't come up there with me. Pooper.

Let me start from the beginning now, I worked on Friday night, Linds friend Heidi drove with me there. We left at abt 1 in the morning. Thinking that H would sleep the whole time. Not so. I didn't sleep much on the way there. Abt. an hour. And I had been up since 7:30 Friday morn. We arrived at their house abt. 9:15 or so Sat. morning. Nate was putting on a bean bag tourney for the Fire Station. We got to the bar at noon. First coctail down. Still only one hr of sleep. Nates mom has a daycare, so Hunter spent much of the day there. Drank some coctails, sucked at bean bags, left to go eat around 5:30 ish or so (I think). Ate a nice restaurant. Came back to the house. Showered (Linds said the make-up was starting to set in my wrinkles! :) I was over tired, emotional, and just plain feeling weird after not sleeping for so long, I have never done it that long before. Nate mom called a couple times, Hunter didn't want to stay and go to bed. So we went to pick her up. Heidi was tired and decided to stay home with H and the 3 of us went out. Got to the bar abt. 9:30 sat. night. Closed the joint down. Had a craving for Taco Bell or Johns (???) total brain fart. But anywho, waited in the drivethru for abt. a flippen hour!!!! Can you believe that??? Wow. By the time we got home and finally settled down for bed, I had had 1 hr. of sleep within 43 hrs. Not gonna do it again, for a very very long time!!!
This pic is right away when we got to the bar sat. night.

There was this HUGE pig outside the restaurant that we ate it! Weird?? eh?

Here is Heidi and I right before the bean bag tourney at a bar called The Paw.

I am combining a few posts into one very large one. We had been back for a couple days, went to the new park at Colvill Park. Sporting her "new" Harley hat and a pink tutu. She was the only girl at the park in a pink tu tu!!!

Nate and Linds were both very gracious with us staying in their home and messing it up a bit, but we had fun! Thank you both for everything. . can't wait to see you in 6 weeks or so!!!!

Last Sat. night I had off. Kurt wanted to stay at home after a long night out Friday. So Kim and dad met me at Bilz to practice darts. At the last minute, we decided to attend a Halloween party at the Elks. Too fun! We were not dressed up. . at first. Kim had a tub in her trunk, so we pulled it out in the parking lot, and started to get dressed. She was a hippie witch, and I was a hippie. Don't ask me who Cousin It was, cuz I can't remember!

Ran into an old high school friend, Ryan!

Biener and I.

Not focusing: Nellies Nook

I have a buttload of pics to post and some stories to share abt. my past weekend visiting my sis in Illinois! But seriously, my brain is not wanting to take the time to do it right now. So, without further ado, I will make you just wait. . . . until I am good and ready. But just thought I would do a quick post to let you all know that I have not forgotten the fact that I do have a blog, and have sooooo NOT been updating it as much as I should.

Cleanin house

That is what today is mostly abt. Officially purchased my Jeep today, it was on lease. Got a free GPS! Oil change: done. Woke up this morning and spilled a whole FULL pitcher of lemonade in my entire fridge. Not the way I wanted to start my day! But whatever, it is cleaned up. I have done 5 loads of laundry. Dishes: almost done. Clean sheets. Raked a butt load of leaves into a pile, and took pics of Hunter! I will post later, maybe tonight. Funny how as I raked, the wind was blowing constantly and at least 20 more leaves fell every 2 or 3 minutes! Never ending. Finally got in the shower abt 1pm.
Just ordered a personalzed Viking Jersey for Kurts b-day coming up. Dudes, is that a good gift?
Sooo need to clean the rest of my house and the Jeep. Bills: paid. Okay, more later.

I warned him. .

Yeah. That's all I got to say. I mean, for whatever reason, I truly think that I am the gassiest person alive! And I told Kurt this. And. . . .I think he believes me. He still has not passed gas in front of me, and I burp and fart daily. Is that bad? Gosh though, I totally can't help it. Could yes, be a lot more descret as far as going into another room, never pushing them up through the esophagus. But seriously, would I be being myself if I didn't do what I do?? For those of you who have known me for years, you know what I'm talkin bout.
Anywho, Hunter has a cold, runny stuffy nose, cough in her sleep. She dropped a duece so bad last night, we threw her in the tub. (not literally, threw that is!) Bill down at Mr. Bilz is throwing a party for Biener this weekend. So, I am working day shift, and then gonna sing some songs! Yay! Someone said that her daughter accidently spilled the beans, but we are gonna try to play it off as some dudes b-day party, signs with his name on etc. etc. Lets see what we can do. Seems no one I know can keep a damn secret. Member when my dad accidently e-mailed my "surprise" b-day invite along with everyone else!? Ha Ha! Whatever. We had a blast! I haven't been keeping up on pics too much lately, just a little blabbing here and there. Hopefully next week. Gotta do someones hair today, and then go to work. Bummer. But- so am getting my nails done, a pedicure and a haircut tommorrow. All before work. So, a half day of "pamper me" is better than nothing!!!! If I don't blog again before this weekend, stay warm and healthy!!! Its gettin flippin cold out!

Dart Practice

So, yes, the season is upon us! Didn't wear the right shoes last night, so my shot wasn't always good. Oh, well. I totally do this for fun, not the competition part. But it is still nice to win :) once in awhile anyways! Came home, talked to Kurt on the phone for almost 2 hours! WTF? Who does that anymore?? I don't remember the last time I could think of that much to say! Honestly. Well, I did have a couple coctails in me which could have made up some of the difference. But I am so serious when I say that this guy cracks me up, I am soooo smiling and laughing all the flippen time when I am with him!! I love it! And so hoping that in 30 yrs. we are still doing the same thing! Isn't that what it should be abt.? My wedding song (I hope) will be My Best Friend by Tim McGraw. I love the words, love the song itself and have never dated anyone that quite fit the song. Kurt knows this and asked if he fit it. Time will tell! (But I soooooo have a good feeling!) One day at a time.
Wheres the dang sun today?? I was up at 6am. Dont know why, just couldn't sleep. Hunter has boogers golore, fever last night. Need to clean my house, take a shower. Be functionable. For a minute or so. Going to visit grandma biener. Should be getting a haircut and my oil changed.
