This is the old Burgundy Realm site. I have started a new one, which is just a continuation of this one. This is here for link integrity of old posts.
New blog address: http://burgundyrealm.net
Today must be wacky silly grin day for me. Nothing spectacular is going on. I just feel good about things today.
I get to host Stanley for a friend. We are going to visit some really awesome historical sights that I’ve been putting off. Gathering my list of places I want to go now. I’m not sure how long I get to keep him, but it will be fun. This is social studies project for a friend’s son. I’m not sure exactly what Stanley is though. Maybe a doll or a cutout. I will know when I get him in the mail.
Just changed web providers. As usual, it is an adventure. Not sure when the new site will be up and running. Can’t seem to upload anything to it and my domain name is still pointed to the old provider. Oh well, things start washing out in 24 to 72 hours.
Went to Walmart to score some ice cream. I love their off brand, its awesome. Bought a coat instead. I’m so backward right now, but apparently in a good way. Usually I go in looking for something I need and walk out with ice cream and various other things I don’t need. May be a good sign that I’m able to prioritize again.
This keyboard on the netbook is not cooperating with me. The touchpad wants to randomly shoot my cursor somewhere else on the page. Static in my coat sleeve? Maaaay…beeee? Said in my best Meagan voice.
I have to admit that its tough sitting in my truck typing this. I think I may just get one of those laptop mounts for the truck. My lap desk doesn’t work very well. Too bulky and still have the laptop or netbook in my lap.
I think its funny that people have to pull up next to me and see what I’m doing. Too funny. Nothing to see here folks, nothing see. Move along now…
G landed a job. He’s doubting himself already. I hate that for him. I can’t save him from himself, though. He will be fine. I know its been awhile since he’s been able to work, but I think he may surprise himself. It’s a long term job so he doesn’t have to worry about being laid off. Good things in his future if he will allow them to happen.
I am wanting to go back to school but not sure what I want to study. Forensic accounting? Criminal Justice? Marketing? Sheesh, like being a kid in a candy store. So many things interest me. Might just start by learning a language. Not sure which one. Spanish isn’t spoken much here. It is, but not enough to warrant learning the language more in depth. Portuguese? French? German? Sheesh, again, so many choices. May just learn Italian simply because I want to learn it.
I am still awed by the week in New York. Not the city, I’m not that brave. Went there for work. They call it induction. I learned so much about how cell phones work and about the company that I work with. Again, still awed. Also feeling really blessed to be able to take the course. I passed. Woohoo. Even with my silly test freeze, I passed. Funny how I draw a blank when testing but remembered everything two seconds after turning in my test.
Skateboarders just went by me. Love that sounds. Makes me think of my E-Man of the Universe!
…like the crazy woman I am trying to keep under control…
I hate my computers. They are running so slowly. Even my new one is running slower than I want and believe it should run.
Seriously, I’m having instant gratification issues that are not being met. I have a need for speed, as in RIGHT NOW.
My web provider is about to push my last button. I didn’t opt in for domain privacy when I renewed my domain name. I didn’t have the money at the moment.
I have it now. Thank you very much for charging my debit card for it anyway.
Top it off with I get a notice my site is up for renewal. If, dear provider, I get a free domain name with my purchase, why am I still paying for my domain name?
I also don’t understand why that new customers get the same thing I have for 1/3 the cost. I’ve been with them since 2005. Hello, what about faithful customer here?
I have a freaking blog. I don’t need unlimited bandwidth, nor do I need 2000 email accounts or unlimited space. I do have another site that lives on my space but its three freaking pages. Hello!
I need a better hosting plan. I need to change this.
The IRS seized my tax return again. I know dad, don’t count your chickens before they hatch.
Well, he didn’t put it that way. More like, don’t spend money you don’t have. I didn’t spend it, but sure had plans for it.
On a good note, it went to pay my school loan that I defaulted on. I do hope its paid off now. I can’t seem to find out. I do know that Ms. Sallie Mae has been garnishing my wages for it since I started at Best Buy in May.
I will just have to push my goal of having a certain amount in savings forward and put the money that was being garnished into my savings.
Minor setback, a little depressing but this is of my own doing so I have to face it.
I can’t decide whether to stay here or find another place to live. It isn’t that bad here.
Okay, maybe that is a lie.
It could be better here.
I have no privacy. I feel like I am unable to grow in my career or personal life here. Too much drama.
I hate drama.
I hate having someone posing as a friend be in my business.
Don’t tell me how to spend or save money when you don’t have any. Don’t tell me how to get a second job when you don’t even have a first one yourself. Quit effing asking me what I brought you every single time I walk in the door.
I discovered that I can travel to unknown places and survive.
I recently went to Westbury, NY for classes. It was amazing. Scary, but amazing. I’m still in shock over it all.
I learned so much about not just my job and how to do it better/correctly, but I learned more about where I work – amazing.
Unfortunately, I kept thinking about my job here instead of focusing while in class. Then again, it was all based on what I was learning in class so its all good.
Expense reports are confusing and time consuming to fill out. Got it done, but it took awhile.
I need to look for a part time job because I am moving back into true part time status at work now that the holiday season is over and we are fully staffed.
I am not excited about the looking part. I do, however, realize that I cannot live off 16-20 hours a week in pay.
Scanning your hard drive for errors takes a very VERY long time. Again, patience is not my strong point. That stupid instant gratification thing…
I miss my mom.
I have a new grandson. He is beautiful. Just thinking about him makes me smile.
My shoulder still hurts. It has bothered me since this summer. It flairs up occasionally. I need to have it checked out but am afraid that it might be something serious.
I wonder how long I can ignore it?
I haven’t set 3in30 goals in months. Therefore, no goals met. Dern.
Now that I’ve literally mind-dumped in front of God and everyone I will hush now and try to focus.Next Entries »
