sore

I feel: sore

It occurs to me that I should be doing my take-home final. However, I cannoty tear myself away from looking up yummy, healthy recipes. I need to be stopped. I am even baking my delicious low fat chocolate chip bread. O_o Jeez, I have become this scary sort of housewife type person. Kinda...because the laundry is still in the dryer. Oops...my bad. :D

Update!

April 20th, 2007 (03:11 pm)
happy

I feel: happy

Let's see, it's really been a while since I updated. Not that anyone reads it, but hey, good to keep track of things that have happened.

School is just about done for this semester! Thank GOD. This semester was stressful, and my face is all broken out to prove it. Yikes. It does NOT look pretty. Ah well, thank god for concealer, that's all I have to say. ;)

I am still going to the gym as much as I possibly can, and slowly but surely it is paying off, which I am pretty happy about. That's probabaly another reason my face is paying the price. It's all for the cause!

Work is still...work. I stepped down from being shoe specialist. I couldn't take the aggrivation and my schedule of classes for the summer semester just would NOT have allowed me to continue on. It was stress I didn't need. I won't go into everything that was wrong...but believe me, there was a LOT. I was grinding my teeth at night...again.

Jay and I are doing wonderfully. I love him so much. We went to Disney for our one year anniversary. It was so wonderful! We rode all the rides, ate bad food, laughed at stupid things, got caught in the rain and ate funnell cakes, and watched the most beautiful fireworks display I have ever seen. I cried. Heh. Well..I got misty. So not QUITE crying, but close. The next day we went to Downtown Disney and ate at the RainForest Cafe. It was really awesome! The food was great and the whole place was done up like a rainforest. Complete with animatronic animals and thunderstorms! Way cool! Then we shopped and tried to waddle off our lunch. ^.^ We ate A LOT. Then we drove back to Jax and had DONUTS for our anniversary dessert. :P Jay bought me a beautiful opal necklace. I love it. <333333 And him. A whole whole lot. So now my opal set is complete! I have earrings, a ring, and a necklace! Yay!

And now on to the BIGGEST news. Jason and Rachel got married!! AHHH!! Jay and I were both in the wedding party, so that was really awesome. The whole affair was just...magical. Honestly. That's the only word I can use to describe it. It was four days of nothing but FUN (with the few minor meltdowns here and there ;) ). I FINALLY got to meet Becca after months of e-mailing and planning Rachel's bachelorette party. She was SO NICE and sweet and funny! And so was Miss Kat! Both girls were just awesome. I can see why Rachel values their friendship so much. :D I'm glad I got to be included in their friendship. Rachel looked beautifully ethereal in her dress. She was glowing, I swear to you. The castle was totally awesome. The ceremony was beautiful and very well done. The reception was SO MUCH FUN! The best man got a little (A LOT) drunk and bit my arm, gave me a pony ride on his knee, and grabbed my boob. Something which we will NEVER let him live down. EVER. Jay and I had a great time dancing with one another and being with one another there. The hotel we stayed was so nice! We even got bathrobes! :D We were able to just enjoy one another and enjoy the moment we were so lucky to be included in.

Anyhow, next week is my last week in this semester. So, only two more to go. And hopefully by winter I will be graduating and leaving Target and getting a new job and Jay and I will be buying either a condo or a house. We're leaning towards a condo though. Neither of us likes yard work so...yah. :)

As I look at my life I realize that I really am a lucky person. I have wonderful friends, even though I sometimes suck at keeping in touch (I LOVE YOU ALYCE!!!), who love and accept me for me, I have awesome parents who are there for me no matter what, I am employed *coughgag*, I have a house to live in, I am going to school and will be done soon, and I have the most wonderful man on the planet as my boyfriend who I love more than I ever thought I could love another. So I guess I really can't complain all that much huh? ;)

Life...

October 20th, 2006 (11:45 am)
bored

I feel: bored

Life is good here. I left Clairol and am going back to Target. They were more than happy to have me back, heh. I just cant take sitting on my butt all day anymore. It was driving me batty. That and not being able to glare at people who are rude. Hmph.

Jay is still working nights. I have to say...I don't like it. No, no I don't. I feel we don't get to spend enough time together. And I hate going to sleep in that bed alone. But, I know this is what keeps my love sane SO...I shall endure for his sanity's sake! *grumblemutter* His birthday is this weekend, so that's good. :) 27. Heh heh.

He is asleep right now and Attitcus is being a terror, running through the house like his tail is one fire. Oiy. Hopefully I can keep him awake so he will sleep tonight, heehee. :)

BTW...I need to find a good Coca Cola Cake recipe. Hrm...

Best ever

I feel: bouncy

I swear, I think this birthday was the best one I have had...ever. :) Everyone I cared about was there (except Alyce, who had to work and Aaron who couldn't make it). We went to Dave and Busters and ate dinner and played video games. Jason and Rachel came. I swear, those two are some of the coolest and most down to earth people I have ever met. I am so grateful to call them friends. They got me a headset so I can participate in TeamSpeak! Thank you!!! Although, you may be regretting your purchase, as I tend to squeal...loudly. Heehee. I finally got Maian to 39, thank GOD. Yeesh. Now to 40 and a MOUNT! KTHX. Barbara and Greg came as well! It was soooo good seeing them! I miss my Barbie-rah! Aaron and his date came. I love my Aaron. He's my homo-life-mate, I swear. Heehee. Trish from work came as well!! I was so excited that she came out! Nicky and her date were there also. Gay pride in the house! Hah! It was great! Also, Jay's friends all showed up to see me on my birthday! I was so shocked. I felt so special. They all gave me their tickets. I swear, they are some of the nicest people. But then again, Jay wouldn't hang out with assholes. :) Amber and Victoria made appearances as well. :D It was great seeing them!

But what made this birthday so special was Jay. Having him there and having him put up with my bratty butt was priceless. I am so lucky to have him. I am so lucky and grateful to have his love. I honestly can't picture my life without him now. He bought me the most beautiful pair of opal studs. I love love love them. We ordered pizza and he watched movies with me and played WoW. His mom got me a $30 B&N giftcard! O_O!!! Yah, I was excited. Next weekend Jay is taking me out to the Cheescake Factory. *drool*

So, I have to say, all in all, this was the best birthday I have had...ever. Thank you to everyone who made it so special for me!

...Colorblind...

September 29th, 2006 (12:33 am)
thoughtful

I feel: thoughtful
I hear: Counting Crows - Colorblind

I love that song. Sooo pretty. I think I have loved it since I saw it (heard it?) in Cruel Intentions. Such a beautiful scene.

Anyways. So yah, here I sit. Jay is at work right now. This whole "working nights" thing...sucks. Just sayin'.

BTW Jas, soooo sorry about abandoning you!! Jay wanted to set my puter up at that moment and I didn't think it would take that long! I suck. Seriously. :(

It's kind of hard being here by myself. It's odd not sleeping in the same bed as Jay. You get so used to someone being there beside you and then all of sudden, there is this empty space. It's disconcerting really.

As to why I have revived the LJ, I like blogging here better, as very few people actually know that it exists. Which is the way I want it, actually. I have always been a pretty closed person when it came to how I feel about certain things. It's just been my experience that when you open yourself up to people, they tend to use it against you. And frankly, I am behind all of that highschool bs. It's like at work. Women can be sooooo evil. They use your life as stories for their own personal gain. What do you really have to gain by telling people that I have terrible panic attacks and need medication to keep them in check? What do you gain by spreading lies about Jay and myself, telling people we dope up on meds and are both certifiable? Where does that get you? I honestly don't know. If I have something to say about someone, they are damn well going to know because I will say it to their face. I am a grown woman. Please, if you have something to say to me, say it. Don't go whispering it around. It's stupid and it pisses me off. If she shows up at D&B Saturday...oh so help me god. A side of Ashley that is rarely seen will make an appearance.

Blerg. I'm tired but I can't sleep. Isn't that odd? So here I sit, typing away as if that will somehow make my brain shut down. Perhaps it will. I used to blog A LOT. I wonder why I stopped. Why didn't I have time to write down the memories I was creating? Hmmmm

P.S

September 28th, 2006 (03:06 pm)

I really need to update the way my journal because...yeah. It's kind of depressing. Just sayin'...

As you were...

Ahahahah! Victory is MINE!

September 28th, 2006 (02:56 pm)
blah

I feel: blah
I hear: The ear-piercing sound of TELEPHONES

I have somehow (and this really escapes me) managed to outsmart my computer at work. Mmhmm. Try and keep me from surfing the intArweb will you? We'll just see about that now won't we? Mreh heh.

So, here I sit, surrounded by women talking to people who have screwed up their hair. Way to go. I seriously have to get out of here. I WISH I was joking. But! School starts in January and my hours will be reduced here (hopefully) and then...I will be GONE! Woohoo! Because quite honestly, dealing with angry people on the phone is just not my cup of tea. Is it MY fault you turned your hair purple? Is it MY fault you put black on your hair and now wonder why you have BLACK HAIR? OMFGWTF?! O_o <--- That's me most of my work day. Mediocrity RULEZ.

*sigh* Maybe I'll duck out early today. But I most likely won't because I am a good employee who wants to keep her job. Hah hah. Jay is asleep, which sucks. He went back to working nights...bleh. That means less of Jay&Ashley time. Booooooo. But, more money for Jay so....yay?

We took Atticus to the vet today to get him checked out. He was fine and he got some booster shots. Apparently he was quite upset with us and didn't let Jay hold him for a while after they got home, which I find intensely amusing.

So let's see...what's on the agenda for todah? Work, Gym, cuddlesquish my boyfriend, dinner, cuddlesquish Jay some more, WoW, and sleep.

My, what an exciting life I do lead...

*thud*
