I Alive

I'm alive and well.. I will hopefully be up and running tomorrow afternoon when I get my new and improved not broken laptop... I can't wait to reconnect with my google reader which I'm sure is overflowing with wonderful and amazing posts.....
I just wanted to give a quick hello and let you all know I'm doing good, just anxiously awaiting the new laptop!
I can't wait to Blog about Jon & Kate Plus 8, I still feel very sad and disturbed by the whole show last night! I won't say much more cause I want to blog about it...
Til then......
PS - hope everyone had an awesome Memorial Day weekend. Mine consisted of dinner and sleepover with Heather, dinner and sleepover with Mom, Dogshow, pedicure and lunch with Erika & Heather, and dinner date with Kim and Jon & Kate.
Brian was away all weekend. He was actually away since Thursday early morning. He went to the Indy 500 with some friends. They are all so crazy and actually rode their Harley's out there.. So currently I am I not only anxiously awaiting the arrival of my new computer but I am anxiously awaiting the arrival of my beautiful boyfriend.. I can't wait to giv him a big smooch and a really long hug. 5 nights, 6 days is a loooong time!!

R.I.P. My Darling Laptop

So today I had to say goodbye to my laptop.... I'm too tired to even get in to it...... But now I am without my computer for a lil longer...
On the other hand I soooo love my boyfriend... As I sat and cried on the phone with him because not only was my computer broken and not worth fixing but I had SUCH a BAD day at work and to boot I haven't been sleeping!! AT ALL!!! So a girl, PMSing with a bad case of insomnia just lost her computer = not a good thing!!
Anyway back to my wonderful boyfriend.. As I sat crying on the phone he told me it was ok... And that he had a surprise for me... He came home with a receipt for a brand new cstom built computer that will be ready next week!!
I'm lucky that Brian has some really great friends that seem to know everyone.. Brian's friend's friend owns a computer store and is an authorized Dell buyer who is going to build a new computer for me!! I really wanted to buy an Apple, but I don't have the money right now to afford that. I didn't even have the money to replace my old computer....
Anyway... This no good horrible day needs to come to an end! I an going to take 2 Tylenol PM and hopefully call it a night!
I'll be back tomorrow sometime to tell the rest of my story....
Till then.....

It Ain't Pretty

My people skills were at their best last week.... Unfortunately...
This is what I saw, heard, read, and did..... It wasn't a good week!

~Shopping in the food store and seeing a woman over 30o pounds in the frozen food aisle buying ice cream while wearing Spandex. It wasn't pretty...

~See a lady totally ignore her not even 2 year old daughter as they crossed the parking lot.... Busy parking lot at that.... I don't want to even thing what would have happened if the driver of the car was less responsible!
~As I got home and unpacked all of my groceries I notcied I forgot the ONE thing I needed for dinner that night!! I hate when that happens...

~I called my boyfriend a BIG JERK as he nicely parallel parked my car for me in to a teeny, tiny spot and bumped my car in to the car behind him.. It wasn't a big deal at all, but I made it one! lol...
~After a few sleepless nights I was not a woman to mess with!

~I called a dog breeder and she told me "her" dogs weren't for me!! All I asked was to hear a little about her pups and how long she's been breeding. And I doubled checked that she was selling the English Bulldog Pups.. She said she was, but somehow I guess my money wasn't green enough! I still don't get it!
I hung up the phone and called her names that I don't want to write on my Blog!!

~After a few sleepless nights I was feeling very tired until the fire alarm went off from 1 am to 4:30 am in the morning! So much wanting to have a good nights sleep!! The next day at worl I wanred my class to behave or look out.... It was a good day!

~I was shaving my legs in the shower the other day and the razor slipped and sliced my nail in half! It still hurts..... And will probably take a while to grow out! Yikes...

Let's hope this work week goes a lil smoother then last....

Will She Live or Will She Die?

So I'm sure most of you know by now I am a HUGE HUGE HUGE Grey's Anatomy Fan!!!

Well tonight ladies and gentleman is the season finale, and it's 2 hours long.. I will be in my glory from 9pm to 11 tonight!!!

The big question is Izzie going to die?

What do you think? Do you watch? Will she die, will they kill off Katherine Heigl's character be written off because in the beggining of the season she expressed feelings of wanting to be off of the show? I recently read an interview where she siad she wanted to stay on Grey's and that she regretted telling people she wanted off the show!

Who knows... I guess I will find out soon enough!

Part of me thinks they won't even tell us this season and that they'll string all of us fans along til next season leaving us in suspense until after the summer. They'll probably end the show having it go either way!! I hate that crap! It drives me nuts!!

But I really do hope she lives, she is my favorite character on the show and she is beautiful and incredibly stunning...

Well you know where I'll be tonight at 9pm EST... Plopped on the couch with a box of tissues...

Happy Watching Grey's fans.........

English Bulldog Puppy Help!?

I've been doing a TON and I mean a TON of research about English Bulldogs lately since Brian and I have decided to get a puppy this summer..
I've been searching for the perfect breeder and thought I finally came across her. After speaking with her twice on the phone and twice over email I figured she was the one. She has been breeding dogs with her family for the past 20 years and really seems to be interested in the well being of her pups which is great! The litters are due sometime around May 29. Yes that's right litters! She has 2 dogs due to have babies sometime soon.
Well anyway... I've been trying to get in touch with her for the past 2 weeks and NOTHING!
Now i'm nervous that she won't contact me... I've tried calling and emailed her twice and I've got nothing back! It's so weird!!
So i started looking in to other breeders but cant find anyone reputable in my area!!
So this is where you come in.....
I'm curious to know if you know of any good Bulldog breeders in the Tri-State Area? We3 want to get a Bulldog strictly from a Breeder, NOT a petstore... Bulldog's tend to have health issues as it is and I want to be sure I get a well cared for puppy in good health. Not how those puppy mills treat their animals...
Also, any Bulldog advice would be much appreciated!! I think I've got most of it all covered but would love your advice or Puppy suggestions in general. Throw 'em out there!! I'm ready and waiting!!

Swine Flu.........

So I walked in to work yesterday to hear that the Swine Flu has hit my hospital!!! Grrrrrrreat.. What a way to start off a work week!!
It doesn't mean that my floor will get hit with it, but if some of my kids come through the ER and people infected with the Swine Flu go to the ER it's apossibility of it hitting my floor.. And you know me..... I tend to be a freak with things like that! I was worried last week about contrating the Swine Flu and now it's in my hospital!!!
I see a ton of handwashing in my future and lots of Handsanitizer.... As soon as I came home from work yesterday I scrubbed myself from top to bottom in the shower with hot hot hot water and LOTS of soap!!! I also ran right to the washer and washed all of my clothes!!! Hey, you can't be too careful, right?
what's the deal with the Swine Flu in your area? Are you concerned about it?
I know I am!!!!

Broken Charger

So I currently have a broken laptop charger and a battery that is completely dead!! At least that's what I think the problem is...
A few weeks ago the clip/hinge on my laptop craked off so I'm hoping it's nothing mechanicially wrong. So at some point this week I need to bring my computer to Best Buy to have the geek squad look it over!! I seriously hope it's nothing to bad... The last thing I want to have to do is spend a ton of moeny to fix it!! So I'm using Brian's computer (which I'm not used to, he's got a desk top and I'm sooo used to chillin on the couch and wirint my posts.. I know I'm spolied, lol) So say a lil pryaer that my wallet won't be hurting with this broken computer... Darn it, I knew I should have choosen for the extended warrnty!
