Explanation for Facebook Status

This is the worst week for sleep that I have ever had! It is only Tuesday! Sunday evening Zeke decides to stay up in the bed and look at craigslist on the laptop. Normally this would not bother me except he was using the clicker thing instead of double tapping the pad… I just drifted into sleep and started to dream when my dream is interrupted by an occasional “click……click….click, click.” Too bad I am too nice all I said was “honey, we have to work early in the morning.” Nope. He couldn’t sleep so he had to keep me up with him! He is so lucky that I have just been too much of a zombie to be angry.
Last night was even worse! Apparently I have had this huge cavity that hasn’t bothered me at all until last night. The dentist was amazed last month that I had not said anything about it and told me I had to come in ASAP to get it fixed or it would really bother me. I guess he was right…duh. Listen to your dentist. Anyway, last night felt like a tiny person was inside my mouth stabbing the inside of my tooth with a knife, over, and over again. I tried everything. First I flossed like crazy, then I brushed my teeth and rinsed with mouth wash three times and nothing seemed to work. From what I could see using my makeup mirror I did not have anything jammed up inside of the cavity. When my alarm went off I just hit snooze and Zeke was trying to get me up and was saying I was going to be late. I told him that I did not care and I only wanted to lie in bed since I could not sleep. I also told him why I was up all night and he said “weird, I had a dream about pulling teeth..” He does not remember whose tooth it was but I also think this was weird and I blame him for my tooth pain, in a loving way of course.

Holy Crap! I need a Time-Turner!

So a couple of weeks ago I joined Pinterest.com and had a goal to make some new, fun recipes and share them in a blog post. Then I spent all my time working, studying, and watching True Blood and now I am hooked on Greys Anatomy (thanks Cari). Next time she bothers me about blogging I am going to blame it on her for telling me about this show.

Not much ha happened and at the same time so much has! I do not know where to begin. Some top secret stuff, family stuff, future stuff, and just about crazy stuff.

Anchorage is about to beat the record for most snowfall ever! Who would have though the year I move here I would witness a record? Also Zeke is kinda mad at me, he doesn't like the snow. Everyone here is baffled by all the snow this year and oddly enough in this part of Alaska people are surprised and do not know what to do with the snow. How do you live in Alaska and not know what to do with snow?

So a girl named Smantha Koenig who works at a coffee hut in Anchorage was abducted a month ago by an armed man and APD still does not have any leads. In New York this kind of stuff would happen all the time and it is sad that it does not become big news. There are people with reward fliers taped to their car windows. Although the whole thing is super scary it comforts me that her family has so much support, including donations to help raise the reward money for her safe return. This has scared everyone and with the talks of putting strict federal laws on gun ownership or gun purchasing I have purchased a handgun. I am so happy Alaska is a open carry state, because nothing says don't mess with this girl with a gun strapped to her hip.

School is expensive, especially when it is coming out of my pocket! These school bills are making me seriously think about alternatives to paying for school such as the military. I work with a national guard recruiter and there are some interesting benefits school wise that I could take advantage of. Another possible option however would be the air guard only because I could use credits toward my major from the technical school, which is not available in the national guard. All of this is still a thought and I haven't put much action into it yet.

If Obama continues to try to crush the military it may not work out at all. Hopefully his propositions of eliminating the commissaries and hiking up Tricare will not pass but those are some benefits that are the military's strong points in recruitments. Our military may be dwindling when we need it the most. Possibly soon in Syria?

Anyway I hope to post some Nikki approved recipes this weekend. I am sure Cari will remind me :).

I dedicate this post to Cari.

PS on this princess challenge, my favorite was the little mermaid then I changed my mind in early childhood to princess Aurora from the sleeping beauty. Ha!
