I have been daydreaming about the future lately, I want a house, with a nice yard so I can have a garden and a dog. Don't get me wrong I love my cat and will always have a cat, but I want a dog too, I miss having a dog around, I love how they want to play and want your attention unlike a cat who only wants your attention when you don't want to give it. There are only a few things keeping me from getting a dog, the place where we live doesn't allow them and we can't afford to have one right now, but when that changes we are soooo getting a dog.

There are a few breeds I wouldn't mind having, I want a boxer, a bulldog, a french bulldog, a boston terrier, rottweiler, german Sheppard and finally a beagle. Of course not all at the same time but those are the breeds that I find insanely cute! It's a long time goal and I will get a dog when the time is right.

I so want to have my own Garden, I miss gardening and would love to grow my own veggies. Plus I find gardening really relaxing and fun. If mom had a nice backyard I might try to convince her to let me have a garden back there but, she doesn't. So its one of my dreams.

I am sick of living in apartments, It's more to do with space then the neighbors. I would love to have a bigger kitchen then what I have a nice living room, a view that isn't a side of a building and more natural light.

But for now, these will all just be dreams, but hopefully one day they will become reality.

Yep, still here

Haven't really had anything blog worthy as of lately. Well ok that's not the case there is something blog worthy but I don't want to post it yet. Pretty much it's the same stuff just a different day.

The days are getting longer and we are at about 12 hours of daylight now. It's making me really stir crazy, I wanna get out and do stuff, just gotta wait for the snow to melt all the way. Richard has a tooth that needs to be pulled but can't get it pulled till the 7th of April, poor guy. Our dentist is out of town and I really only trust him and so does Richard so he opted to wait till he got back. He does have pain meds, that he only takes at night to help him sleep other than that its advil all the way. Richard loves his job, just wishes there were more hours.

Mom got me a pretty cool watch yesterday at the old bag auction. I haven't had a watch in so long, it's nice to have one again. Lucky for me it actually fits, I have had hard times finding watches that actual fit my wrist. Not only does this one fit but its a bit loose!

That's pretty much it for me, so laters

Training on St. Patrick's Day

I went in to Hospice of Anchorage today and did some training. The phones are something else, it's going to take me some time to get them down and to get to know everyone and who deals with what. Other than that, all the ladies there were really nice. I think once I get the phone system down I wont feel so flustered. I at least have the greeting down.

I have been making some more crock pot recipes, had mom over for dinner on Monday for a chicken dish that was super easy to make and tasted so very good. It had carrots, red potatoes, cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup. Today I made Chicken a la King and wasn't to impressed with it, Richard and I had to do a lot of doctoring to it to make it taste right, it was just to bland. I don't think I will make that dish again.

Seeing has how it's St. Patrick's Day I will leave you with an Irish Blessing:

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind always be at your back
May the sun shine upon your face,
And the rains fall upon your fields
And until we meet again...
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

Furby Memories

For some weird reason, I woke up thinking about Furbies, and had this overwhelming urge to go to my moms house and get my two furbies out of my old bedroom closet, put fresh batteries in them and see if they still worked after all these years.

I remember when Furbies came out, the year was 1998 and I was a freshman in high school, and I wanted one so freaking bad. Sadly living up here in Alaska getting the hottest toy at the time is damn near impossible specially if you are late finding out about said toy. Plus limited supplies so you have to be on your toes and know when shipments are coming in and hope that no one else does. This goes for gaming consoles as well. So no matter how many stores we went to, mom and I just couldn't find me a furby.

This went on for quite awhile, any time we went to the store I took a shot and looked for a furby, Then mom and I went out of state for a long weekend down to Washington to visit my half brother, we figured since we were down in the lower 48 we might have some luck, so we went around to a few stores and NOTHING no one had this blasted furby! I was giving up hope of ever getting one, then if I remember correctly we walked into a store and they had a few I was so excited and begged and pleaded with mom to get me one even though they were expensive, we ended up getting one, actually I think we got 2 cause I think we got one for my brother as well, but I don't remember if he was up here at home or if he had moved to California yet.

I loved my furby and a few months later was able to get another one, so I had 2 furbies. I played with them for quite a while then as most things go, got tired of them put them in their boxes which I had kept and put them on the shelf in my closet. Years later a friend was having a garage sale and had the Gizmo Furby and I bought it for like a buck and had it up in my closet for a few years but my brother wanted to give it to a friend of his as a gift so I ended up selling it to him for more than the actual price of the furby. So not only did I make a profit on it, but a dang good one cause I only got it like I said for a dollar.

I think later today or sometime soon I am going to go over to moms and fish my two furbies out of the closet and bring them home. I kinda miss having them around.

Dance, Boogie..... Doot doot dooo! hehehehe!
