It has been so hot here in the nati. When you live on the third floor, it, is, even, hotter! So now it is cooling off and I am just stoked about this! The cooler part is when I move it will have cooled off even more and it will be easy peazy to get people to move me out of the third floor walk up. Current Mood: amused

The other day I had something funny happen to me. Someone that I would consider a friend but know because of LJ and online I was feeling concerned about because I usually see her post regularly and had not seen her post in a while. I looked at her page and noticed that I couldn't see any of her entries because they were all protected. I know I haven't posted in a while and was feeling sad because I thought that she had chosen to unfriend me. Then I realized that my client was not logging me in and it had been this way for a couple of weeks. So I'm glad she's still my friend on FB and even though I don't have much to say I should really keep up better with this LJ. It's been a difficult six months health wise for me but I think it is all getting back in order again.

On October 9 I met Nora a sweet little black lab. We're off to a great start together and my girls are getting along well. Nothing is better than snuggling with the old lady and the new kid on the block on each side of me. It was a long road getting through class as a week before I was in the hospital and class was hard but we did it! Current Mood: excited

|Just another Saturday night
I am sitting in my apartment on the third floor during a thunderstorm with tornados all over the place, using my computer and watching the news. Right now the storm is avoiding my little part of town but it feels really strange outside, it is very quiet out there! Rainy and I are both doing well keeping busy as usual. Current Mood: cheerful

Power came back on at 6:45. What a strange couple of days!
Ok so Ike hit us! We had the wind at 80 MPH but no rain. I have been without power since lunch time Sunday afternoon. Rainy woke me up at 2:00 Monday morning panting and whining at the door meaning one thing. So the next morning off to the vet because it had blood in it. We'll see, I, want, power!

|Way too awake!
I had a nasty reaction to something and broke out in nasty hives. I gave it two days so they didn't go away so went to the urgent care this morning. She gave me a huge shot of steroids and some pills. I took a little nap this afternoon but now I am wide awake! This is craziness, I just want to sleep because tomorrow I am going to want to sleep at work, not good! So if anyone is awake send me some sleeping something! Current Mood: Way too awake!

So Rainy is just so cute! Today I was walking out the door at work to go to lunch. Rainy was looking over at a car parked in front of work and wagging furiously and wanting to go to the car. I told my silly puppy that it was no one that she knew and to keep on walking. It turns out that it was one of our favorite volunteers parking out front and she wanted to go say hi.

Today I was visiting a client. She lives in a Senior facility. I was waiting in the lobby for the social worker to meet me. The smell of the place, disinfectant, and something else that reminded me of an institution. It brought back memories of the days when Mom and Dad would drop me off at KSB for two weeks and the dorm smelled the same way. It was really strange but I had a lump in my throat and I wanted to sit down and cry right there. The moment passed but still it shakes me up to think about this morning. Current Mood: bored

I figured that since ViChicka updated her flist that I should too. Everything is going well, just getting ready for Christmas. I did all of my shopping online this year and that was really great! I am still fighting a yucky cold that I am hoping will be out of my system before this weekend. I was supposed to go to Brad and Jen's gathering but the supposed snow that we didn't get freaked us all out from having a good time. At Grandma's today I got three hugs and kisses from little Shelby who will be 4 years old so that was sweet. Because of the snow Rainy didn't get her bath either.

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
Lord, let this be my prayer. Keep this written in my heart and on my lips when the little things start to creep into my heart and take over my thoughts.

I moved in on 7/7/07. It is supposed to be my lucky year as I turned 25 on the 25th. We had three trucks Dad's work van and a car. The people consisted of Mom Dad Me Jason Grandma, Uncle Steve, Aunt Kim, Corry, Drue, Brad and Jennifer. Mom was parking in front of my apartment and a George Strait song came on the radio, though I can't remember the song. All of the heavy stuff was moved in 30 minutes. I have wonderful friends but sometimes it takes something so small to realize how great they really are. I left Rainy at Mom's house thinking that she could just bring her to me on Sunday. Well everyone was getting ready to leave and I realized that I really didn't have her with me. Jennifer and Brad offered to take me home and get Rainy then come back to my place. I took them to dinner, we went to a church festival grabbed Rainy then back to my place. It was there that we found out that Brad's Grandpa died, quite sad news to all of us as I knew Grandpa very well. The first night was uncomfortable as I did not have air-conditioning until Sunday afternoon. I had internet installed first thing Sunday morning. Rainy seems to have settled in quite nicely. I have been quite busy with my little place and it truly feels like home. It has a little bit from many of my loved ones, my couch came from Grandma, and it was hers long before Granddaddy died. She also gave me some of the silver wear that was given to her as a wedding gift but never used. Mom and Dad gave me their bedroom suit so they could get a new one. I have Uncle Steve and Aunt Kim's old kitchen table and chairs. I have a set of chairs that MomMom gave Grandma when they got married. Grandmamma gave me some wicker furniture, too. I have the aphgan that Mom made for me, and dresser scarves that Grandma made, and I have a George Strait throw on the back of my couch. Paula knitted me some dish cloths and when she gave them to me I cried. So much love has gone into this place!

A friend wrote this for my birthday and I can't resist posting it.
A Poem for the Holladay
A holiday is a special thing
In Summer, fall, winter, or spring
We do something for every occasion.
We eat turkey, and go on vacation.
We put presents inside of wraps.
On Memorial day, we hear Taps.
On the Fourth of July, fireworks are ignited.
We don't bring our dogs, or they get excited.
today is for special Holladay;
I don't know what more I can say.
June 25 is the day that's sufficing,
So let's get out the cake and icing.
Let's have fun and have a big lunch
Let's celebrate with a bowl of punch.
And then, if we want to get zany,
September 25 is the birthday of Rainy.
I don't think I will ever forget my 25th birthday. Saturday night I got to spend so much time with Mindy and Emma and we had so much fun. We went shopping and drank coffee and ate soft pretzels and just had a blast! On Sunday the family came over and all of the clothes that Aunt Kim gave me fit! Grandma gave me a little stuffed dog a fund raiser from the Seeing Eye and it is so adorable and sweet. I debated over and over if I wanted to work today or take the day off. I decided to save the vacation day and I am glad that I did. This morning around 10:00 I heard a commotion outside my door. All of a sudden the commotion was in my office. All of my favorite people some of whom have known me for years and years got together and gave me a pot holder set with a gift card to Wal-Mart. They told me that my face was as red as my shirt. I feel so lucky to be working at a place where my coworkers care about me and want me to succeed. In a way I'm everyone's little sister here at work because I am so much younger. Later the Holladay side came over and stayed and stayed and stayed and I was so tired when I finally came in that I listened to my happy birthday wishes on my phone and went to bed. Grandma says that this is my lucky year. I am starting to think so, a job that I enjoy my new apartment moving out on my own, I'm really on my way!

Yesterday evening I started to feel it again, that pain in my lower back that I thought was gone forever. I thought that I would just go to bed and feel better in the morning. Well, my back is still hurting very bad. I don't have time for this, nor do I have the leave at work to do the treatment that I did before when my back did this. I just wish I knew what caused it. Current Mood: annoyed
