Ugh I hate Macs ! I hate not being able to copy and paste things!!! On Macs you can in a way copy and paste - you highlight something and then drag it over to a few spot and drop it....hmmm. The only trouble is on Internet Explorer for Macs you can't open more than one internet window at a time so its almost impossible to copy and paste. My PC is at the desk in the living room but I can't get online with it because since we got DSL on my mom's mac she cancelled the second phoneline - yes I could just hook it up to the remaining phoneline but I have been too lazy to do that hehe. Have to soon or I will go nuts. Haven't unpacked much of my stuff - procrastinating on it. Might get my haircut tomorrow or sometime this week. Went to lunch with my mom and sister and the babies today! The one time I don't bring my camera and Richard is in the cutest little outfit!!!! Oh well. My mom and I went to Walmart on the way home - it was an old one that they are converting into a Walmart Supercenter so everything was a mess but there was a clearence section so I got two bras for $6. My mom got me Two Weeks Notice on dvd - which was really nice of her as my bday is to close. She got my seat covers and a yoga mat and bag on clearence that I can have on my bday hehe.

In other news - Pete bought a PS2 today. My OWC girls remember the who fiasco with Pete trading in his PS2 for an X-box about this time last year ? When he was jobless and therefore unable to come to see me for my 18th birthday ? Umm yeah. Well I can't yell at him for the way he acquired this one I guess. One of the guys he works with, his friend has won it at an auction but already had one. I guess he knew that Pete kinda wanted one to play Grand Theft Auto: Vice City. Well this work mate's friend wanted to see the PS2 for 50 pounds as he already had one. This PS2 is unused which to Pete is the only way to buy game systems or games. Anyway so he got it. He now has both the PS2 and the Xbox and therefore is the envy or everyone his age that is male I suppose. (And Kate hehe) I guess its better than him spending that much on drugs or drink right ? He told me he spent that much money today and didn't say how - so for a few seconds I thought he bought me something, namely this comforter (duvet) set I saw on www.frenchconnection.com which was like 45 quid and i really didn't want it but thought it was funny. (Had the initials of the UK branch of the store - FCUK) Glad he didn't get that for me but still hehe. So I guess as his way of a consoluation - because he knows I wouldn't have been overjoyed by the new purchase he has said he will do some pics for me on his dad's webcam (clean ones so don't get any ideas lol) which he has been promising me to do for months since I told him I vaguely remember what he looks like in person. Well that was my day hehe.

Well I'm in a better mood than I was on Friday - thankfully! Over the weekend I worked at the motel and thats about it. Yesterday Pete was feeling ill but he feels better today thankfully as he can't take off anymore sick days ugh. He's going to try to keep the job he has now - take as much holiday time as they let him (maybe take as many mondays and fridays off as he can) so we'll have nice long weekends when I'm there :) Oooo this time in 2 months I'll be in England probably just relaxing with Pete ;) Haven't been doing much today but packing up Easter decorations and trying (well not even starting) unpacking all my stuff from college yet. Hmph - my birthday is in 11 days woohoo :) Pete sent my bday package out on Saturday so it should be here well in time for the day ::fingers crossed:: of course hehe. On the exercise front I finally did my walking again last night :) I bought a couple Dannon Fusion smoothies yesterday to try them and I think I might get some so that I can have them for breakfast each morning while driving to school - better than nothing I guess :) Ooo I made really yummy garlic bread yesterday :) Might make some more later. Better be off and continuing chatting with Pete ;)

Hello! So I went to my sister's yesterday, which is probably the most valid reason for lack of postage.

Hmmm looks like I will be starting a new Yahoo group for US-UK LDR's. I am the moderator of one at the moment - but since the owners are getting married (Congrats to Sharon & David) - they asked me to become the new owner, but the catch was Sharon wanted to remain owner of the current group and change it...soooo I created a new one. Not like I have anything else to do right ? Its not that I don't like giving advice - well at times I do but overall I'm just sick of talking about the whole LDR thing. I don't even really think of Pete and I as being in an LDR anymore - we just live in two different countries that happen to be 3,000 + miles away from each other. I'm tired of trying to explain to people about how "how I do it" like I even know ?! I do it because its the only option except breaking up. Its the way things have to be. Yes I could move there and work and go to school and be in debt and vice versa with Pete. But we don't want to do that - we want to do things our way, even if it does take 6 years or more - thousands in plane tickets and handfuls of teary goodbyes. And to be brutually honest - I'm sick of people getting to be together that haven't gone through all that we have. But alas I can only say that here. Please don't comment about this post as I really don't need anyone's opinions.

On a lighter - less whinning note, the belated Friday Five:

1. What was the last TV show you watched?

Hmmm I've been watching bits and pieces of TV today - PUNKED on MTV, Absolutely Fabulous on Oxygen, Open Access on VH1.

2. What was the last thing you complained about?
Ooo see above post ;)

3. Who was the last person you complimented and what did you say?

Hmmm probably Pete - I probably said he was sexy or great or special or cute or something of that lovey-dovey nature

4. What was the last thing you threw away?

Bunch of trash when cleaning motel rooms here.

5. What was the last website (besides this one) that you visited?

Jennie's to see if anything was up with her.

Hi hi. *School's Out for Summer* - dun dun dun ::singing that song:: Okay so its more like a spring break for me, as summer semester starts on May 5th I wanna say hmph oooo that means that Friday will be birthday!!!! yay (Which is May 9th in case your not up to date hehe) So seems as though Lynn might be coming back down South the day before I leave to go over there hehe - getting out before I arrive I see hehe. Hmph so Pete will probably try to get a part time job before I get there. For two reasons really - he is thinking about taking some courses starting in the fall so if he gets a part time job he will be able to work it around his courses. And also because I'm coming in the summer his current job will probably refuse him the holiday he has (something like 4 weeks or something!) as it is their busiest time! Soo I don't totally agree with it but I'm glad he does want to spend time with me and also that he would like a part time job that way he'll have money and have time with me hehe :) Anyway I'm all moved back home now :) Well all my stuff is still in the back of the mini-van but I'm home :) I had a ton of stuff! Mostly junk! Geez! Anyway just thought I'd post on here - hope everyone had a good St. George Day :) Ooo I must change the graphics on my contents page of my website soon!

Wednesday, April 23, 2003

Happy Saint George Day. See my St. George Day page by clicking my card on the right side :) Not really in the festive mood - as I had two finals today - one at 8am and then another at 10am. So I'm still dressed in what I threw on to go to class. Ended up going out to dinner with my roommate Megan, my suitemates and a few other girls it was good ;) Anyway off to chat with Pete :)

Tuesday, April 22, 2003

Here I am at the Library - I should be working on my paper that i have to turn in tomorrow and my other stuff I need to do but - alas - I'm not! Tuesday This or That looks *normal* this week so here it goes:

1. Yummier: Chocolate ice cream or strawberry cheesecake? Mmmmm depends on my mood - right now pass the Strawberry Cheesecake!
2. Better to watch on TV: Movies or sports? Definitely movies - though soccer (UK football) is good too if I'm in the mood. Only if it's Liverpool though ;)
3. A better web browser: MSIE or Netscape (or tell us your own favorite!) I guess MSIE is the one I use mostly so I guess its okay lol
4. A better way to travel: Automobile or bus/train? I usually travel by car but I like travelling by bus/train in England - except when its for 5 hours to get to a place that would only take 3!
5. Your preferred camera: Digital or film? Since Xmas I have to say Digital! Its so much easier and less expensive as I only print out a few good pics :)
6. A Cooler Vehicle: Motorcycle or sports car? Sports Car I guess
7. More fun: Video games or board games? Depends on the game - even though Pete will say he has corrupted me I'll say Video games
8. Sexier: A perfect body or an intelligent mind? Intelligent mind but there has to be some attraction! Hehe
9. A stinkier smell: Skunk or gasoline (petrol)? I like the smell of gasoline (petrol) so I'd say skunk!
10. Thought-provoking question of the week: What is more important to you: making a ton of money and being at the top of your field, or finding your soulmate and living a comfortable but not wealthy life? Definitely the second one :) As the Beatles would say: "I don't care too much for money - money can't buy me love.." But a bit of it is good ;)
Finally got my email of my eticket. I saved it to my comp and will put it on a disk to print out later in the library so I have it. Now I can really start getting excited ;)

Monday, April 21, 2003

Hi hi. As the Imood says I'm impatient today still about the whole email from Student Universe - still nothing. I emailed them again today after I read on the FAQ's section that I should expect the email within 3 days of purchasing the ticket online - its been a week since we purchased it with no email yet :( See what they say. Pete's friend Kate who recommended the site, her girlfriend used it to book a flight there (her gf is also from the US - we don't get along too well though - long story) Anyway so I wanted Pete to ask Kate to see if she could ask her gf how long it too them to verify her enrollment status or whatever but he couldn't get a hold of her today and said he's try tomorrow. They have been friend since they were babies hehe even have baby pics of them together so cute hehe. And I don't have anything to worry about with Kate being gay hehe. Anyway, to add to that looks like my suitemates too the TV home a week early so I can't do my walking until I get home on Thurs evening UGH I wish they told us they were taking it back early I could have maybe arranged for one of ours at home to be brought here but no use now ! AH!!! We had a good Easter :) I have pics of it on my MSN site for those who are members :)

Saturday, April 19, 2003

Ooo hi everyone. Sorry I haven't blogged lately! I was so busy with school that I barely had enough time to get everything done. Ooo Happy Easter to everyone for tomorrow :) I shall go and send ecards hehe. I'm home now and I won't be back to school until Monday morning yay. Then I will have a week off until summer semester starts yay! Hmph I emailed Student Universe and asked why I hadn't received a confirmation for an eticket or UPS info for paper tickets. They said they were still in the process of verifying my enrollment as a student ugh hope they send me something soon!

Belated Friday Five:

1. Who is your favorite celebrity?
Ummm I dunno. I like Julia Roberts as an actress and Hugh Grant as an actor - well he's cute lol
2. Who is your least favorite?
I guess someone like Monica Lewinsky or Pamela Anderson - people who are totally stupid
3. Have you ever met or seen any celebrities in real life?
I saw Drew Carey at Animal Kingdom at Disney a few years ago, and my mom and my brothers saw and said hello to Steven Speilberg at Universal Studios! The one time I didn't go with them!
4. Would you want to be famous? Why or why not?
Ummm I don't think so - I don't think I could be in the public that much without killing myself lol
5. If you had to trade places with a celebrity for a day, who would you choose and why?
Hmph have no idea maybe like someone like the Queen or Prince William but they're not really celebrities lol

Hmmm got a weird error when I tried to change my template hmph. Ok I went to Target earlier, to get some stuff for the Psych project that is due on Thurs. Anyway I was there and I saw a 3 mile tape for Walk Away the Pounds so I bought it hehehehe it was only $7. I think its the one Jennie has, which is the plain one with the weight balls ? Anyway I did that tonight :) It was interesting, I think I'm baised because I really love my Walk Away the Pounds for Abs, but this was good. The tape looks a bit older though - and Leslie looked really weird, her eyebrows were all funny looking, and Randy looked funny in these weird red shorts and blue shirt which totally didn't watch the women in black shorts or pants and light orange tops. Anyway it was interesting so I'm back on track with 148 miles :)

Monday, April 14, 2003

Have a bit of news - I booked my flight to the UK today :) I will be leaving on June 27th (getting there at 7am GMT on June 28) And leaving on August 3rd! Yay 5 weeks woohoo. I really hate booking tickets online, you really have nothing to look forward to as far as the actual ticket coming. Well actually I might, the website I booked it through, Student Universe, is going to email me in a few days with either the UPS info for my paper tickets or the e-ticket confirmation etc. I hope I get paper tickets! Anyway that about it. Lots of stuff to do no time to do it in.

2 Months and 13 days til I leave for England!
Hi hi. Just got back from working on my 10 page paper for my English Comp class. The 3rd Draft I think is due tomorrow, and the Polishing draft is due on Friday so I thought I'd get most of it done now, as I have a 3 page paper for my British Lit class due on Friday. Hmph papers and projects galore! I did most of my Math Project, I might put a few other things on it before I turn it in on Tues but not too much to do really. Well I thought I was going to be able to book my flight to the UK in June tonight - but my mom decided she wanted to see if there was anything cheaper and *thinks* she found something even though its leaving a few days before the summer semester ends so I will have to arrange to take my finals early or something, plus it gets there on a Thurs so I dunno if anyone will be able to pick me up ugh!!! I forgot to mention that to my mom on the phone, so I shall have to tomorrow, and then ask Pete when I chat with him etc. UGH I hate booking flights mostly bc i'm the one that has to do all the contact info between the websites, my mom, Pete etc. Even though Pete's paying for it my mom wants to find the best deal, but the one she found was direct instead of the connecting one we were going to book so maybe she has a point. I will keep everyone up to date on the progress of said flight booking. I have a few blinkie linkies to add to my Daily reads section oops sorry its so small hehe. I just had doing the HTML coding so I've been slacking on decorating this blog, I think the simplicity though hehe. Oo my bday is coming up Sara has hinted to me what she's getting me hehehehe. I know Pete has bought me two presents yay! The rest will probably be money from parents and other family hehe. Anyway I feel lost because I can't do my walking still :( My mom said why don't I go outside and walk but its not as intense and really I was in a routine with my Walk Away the Pounds! Stupid dvd player, my mom offered to bring a dvd up here but as we only have 2 weeks here no real reason to ugh. I shall have to do a lot of miles this coming Easter weekend. Enough of my rambling for now! Off to go look at flight woohoo.

Sunday, April 13, 2003

Here I am wasting time and energy again online. This is an adverse effect of being in and LDR which starts early on in the LDR and will continue probably pretty much after you're not in the LDR anymore - you become addicted to the internet. I think this happens more with females than males. I know that personally I am on the internet so much because I want to talk to Pete that when when I don't need to get on to talk with him I still find myself sitting at my desk, double clicking on my AOL icon and typing in my password and here I am. I actually just got off the phone with Pete, so the only reason I'm on is to waste time that I should be using to work on my many things I have to do. I have gotten some stuff done today - worked on my paper for about two hours, and glued all the stuff on to my board for my math project. Other than that I've just been on here or wasting time waiting for Pete to call me etc. Hmmm have a headache really should get off the internet - but will I ? Probably not.

Saturday, April 12, 2003

DVD player is still not working :( Can't walk - feel lazy because I can't do my walking, therefore I want to be lazy and eat and watch a movie (on VHS obviously) but should do work on tons of things due next week and the following one. My roommate's friend was in our room when I came back from work - at around 5pm. Actually she was at my desk, on my computer, on AOL under her screen name as a guest! The cheek! (Putting it nicely in a british way.) UGH She said this as I walked in "I'm on your computer is that okay?" In shock all I could do is plaster a fake smile on my face and say "Yeah sure" UGH. She got off the comp a few mins later but UGH. And she didn't really leave until 11pm. She came and went, waiting for my roommate to come back, watching TV in the living room. Then when I got back from Walmart she was here with my roommate. I went into our suitemate's room for a minute and there she is at my desk signing on to AOL "is it okay if I go on ?" what am I suppose to say "get the F**** AWAY FROM MY COMP YOU B****? " Well I should have yes but I'm too nice - no really I am. Hmph. Will be glad when I'm home and i don't have random people waiting for my roommates all day long ugh.

Friday, April 11, 2003

After four and a half years in and LDR with an English guy you would think I would know most of the British spellings for things right ? Well I learned something new today! I'm chatting with Pete and he makes a joke comment about me "kicking him to the kerb" and I correct him and say "Its curb" Well then he replies that it is "kerb" there. Well I say "really ?" secretly thinking he just doesn't know how to spell. Well then I got to the Oxford Dictionary and type in "kerb" and sure enough it comes up "kerb (US curb)"!!!!!! Learn something new everyday I guess :)

Friday Five
1. What was the first band you saw in concert?

Sadly I have to say the Spice Girls when I was 14. Yes yes I know. But my sister got me the tickets for my 14th Birthday and it was cool I guess, at least then it was. The second person I saw in concert was Elton John! He was GREAT ! And thats all I've only been to 2 concerts in my life - sad I know!

2. Who is your favorite artist/band now?

Ummm I like a lot of different artists/bands including: Elton John, David Gray, Dave Matthews Band, etc etc.

3. What's your favorite song?

I dunno I have a few. Probably favorite of all time would have to be "When you Say Nothing At All" performed by Ronan Keating because its "our song" I also like Elton John's "No Valentines" when I'm depressed and a few more I can't think of at the moment.

4. If you could play any instrument, what would it be?

The FLUTE! I have always wanted to learn that! And the piano I guess.

5. If you could meet any musical icon (past or present), who would it be and why?

THE BEATLES hands down! Because they were GREAT! I guess the two surviving ones would be cool to meet but I'd like to meet all 4 of them :)

Hmmm whats up right now ? The dvd player isn't working, it doesn't seem to load the dvd so I can't do my waling :( And then I came to get online and it came up that "AOL has temporarily blocked access to your account" Oook Hmmm then I went and got on the other account, I think paid for by my uncle. But I think my uncle just gives my parents money every month or it ? Or is it a seperate bill ? If its the same bill then both of them should be denied access not just the other one - maybe my parents cancelled the other account without telling me ? I dunno and its too late to call them as they're probably asleep. I shall go see if the dvd player wants to work now lol

Oooo I re did the cards on my St. George Page, added a banner to my 100 Things page and my Homepage on the Contents Page :)

Thursday, April 10, 2003

Hi hi. Well Pete's job is okay - he only got a verbal warning which is pretty rare as they usually only give the final written warning. Anyway it was a crap thing to get a warning for anything. So we're back on track trying to get the flight sorted. Hopefully in a few days we'll have it set - either if Pete pays with his card or my parents pay with theirs and Pete transfers the money. I got PSP working on my comp now - ended up changing the date back on the comp as taught by Jennie hehe. I want to upload more stuff when I have time. Anyway just wanted to pop in and tell you all about Pete's job. Bye for now
Well my Imood says it best - I'm drained. Emotionally, Physically, Mentally. Lets start with the mentally brain explanation shall we ? Not counting this week I have two more weeks left of the semester, that one of those is finals - i think - yeah pretty sure. So needless to say EVERYTHING is due next week or at the latest the following week. I missed dinner because I was in the library working on a computer class assignment which I would have been done with on Tuesday but the computer decided not to save my document in power point. Anyway, then I came back to the room, got my stuff, went to Walmart to get stuff for my Math project - due next Tuesday. On the way back here I stopped at Taco Bell mmmm. Then I got back here and worked on my final paper for my English Comp class, which is due on the day of the final - thank god. I have a Psych project I haven't even started on because the other members of my group won't get together and are never in class at the same time. UGH Anyway in two weeks I move back home, have a week off and then start driving back and forth 4 days a week for 2 classes a day FUN!

Ready for the Emotionally drained bit ? Well it seems like Pete is getting a disciplinary tomorrow - whatever that is. It basically means either he'll loss his job or get a final written warning. Basically I guess he talked back to his supervisor who called him in for a chat about how no one was doing anything good enough when Pete is the hardest worker on that section or whatever. So yeah it all depends on tomorrow. The physically drained part just is because the other two parts are so drained I just wanna sleep. I skipped walking tonight oh well theres always tomorrow.

Wednesday, April 09, 2003

Ooo forgot to mention I finished reading How to Be Good today :) It was, well Good lol. I really like Nick Hornby and how his books have a moral/honest/feel good message to them. So now I can either continue reading Fever Pitch by Hornby or I'm a Stanger Here Myself by Bill Bryson. Hmmmm thats when/if I have time.
Hi hi. Hmmmm I feel pretty productive today. I still have tons to do but I actually did something today. Remember how I said about Pete taking last Friday and Monday off his paid holiday ? Well today he got called into the supervisors office. Thing is on Thursday he was in the bathroom being sick and a guy who was like a higher up person came in and Pete told him how he didn't have any more sick days and stuff. So the guy said not to worry about it and he got his name and said he would take care of it and that he would see Pete on Tuesday or whatever. Well seems like the higher up guy never told Pete's supervisor or whatever about it so good thing Pete explained the whole thing before his supervisor could say anything. Anyway that higher up guy is off til Monday so they can't see what *really* happened til then. Pete's been talking more about doing some courses in the fall which is great :) He will probably get a part time job too - he hopes at the GAME shop because he like knows the guys in there by first name and always goes there when he's in Basildon hehe.

Nothing more on the flight front at the moment. My mom said that if I found a cheap flight she would be able to put it on the credit card and then Pete could transfer the money. Well I found one on Student Universe for $700 which is the cheapest we'll get and my mom needs to talk to my dad to see if we can put it on the card and then Pete'll transfer the money into my parent's account. Hmmmm Joy.

Monday, April 07, 2003

Instead of working on my 2 papers and 3 projects I have to do within the next 2 weeks... I'm doing this:

Circle of Words

Week 13

Discovering the Momentum of Creative Movement
The body is shaped, disciplined, honored, and in time, trusted.
-Martha Graham

1. To exercise or not to exercise...that is the question. Do you exercise on a regular basis? If so, what is your schedule? If you don't, why not? In what ways do you exercise? What works best for you when it comes to loosing weight or maintaining your weight? Do you like to exercise? What excuses do you have not to exercise?

I try to exercise everyday doing my Walk Away the Pounds for Abs. I have been pretty good about keeping on a schedule since I started in mid January, but the past week or so I have only done it every other day. I also try to watch what I eat but that hasn't been to helpful lately, especially since I have to eat what they have in the dining hall here. I have lost about 6 lbs overall since January...and walked 139 miles :)

Making Peace with Your Hair
Genius is of small use to a woman who does not know how to do her hair.
-Edith Wharton

2. What kind of relationship do you have with your hair? Do you have your hair the way you want it or are you working on growing it out...or have plans to chop it all off? Do you color it, and why? Do you spend a lot of money on your hair or do you cut and/or color it yourself? How important is your hair to you ?

Me and my hair have a very open relationship. I don't bother it too much and it doesn't bother me too much. I hate blowdrying my hair so I NEVER do. Its about to my shoulders at the moment but seems very heavy and weighed down so I want to get it cut in a few weeks when I have the time to. I don't color my hair, and I don't put much in it. I do get it cut at nice salons which sometimes costs a bit but thats about it. Pete's mum is a hairdresser so I can get free haircuts when I'm in England hehe.

The Face in the Looking Glass
The most beautiful makeup of a woman is passion. But cosmetics are easier to buy.
-Yves Saint Laurent

3. Do you dress your face up with makeup? What kinds? Do you wear makeup everyday or just on special occasions? Do you spend a lot of money on your makeup...or just buy the cheaper brands?

I wear makeup sometimes, not a lot though. The last time I wore makeup was last Weds, just because I was in the mood to. I only use a foundation/powder that comes in a tube that you draw on your face and rub it in - does anyone know what I'm talking about ? I wear lipstick but not a lot. I usually only wear make up on special occasion. Though when I'm with Pete he doesn't want to kiss me on the lips if I have lipstick on as he doesn't want it on him. I sometimes where masscara, but I have pretty long eyelashes so I don't really need it. It seems like whenever I wear foundation and eyeshadow I get all sniffly and congested so I might be allergic to something in it, which has made me stop wear it as much. I don't spend a lot of money on makeup. I do have some Clinique makeup which I got when I went to prom and stuff in HS from when we got our makeup done and we bought a lipstick or something and got a free gift with purchase.

Sunday, April 06, 2003

Yeah so I almost got into a brawl at the grocery store earlier. Why you ask? Well you see it all started when I commented about a group of kids in front of us (us being my mom, her friend, and I) Well her friend goes on to say that kids are great etc. For some reason I don't like kids in larger amounts than two - sometimes even just one is enough. So we keep walking down the aisles, and we get to the chip aisle. There is this woman taking up the entire aisle with her cart (trolley for you brits) with her two kids. The youngest, a little boy, about two years old is wacking a balloon that his sister (who was about 5 or so) was holding with a role of wrapping paper, and I don't mean just lightly tapping it or playing around, I mean forcefully wacking it over and over again. So then I said to my mom's friend on observing this "theres a bad kid" Okay so it might have been said louder than I intended, and maybe to the mother it was offensive...but sorry...if I had kids and my little boy was wacking a balloon with a role of wrapping paper (well I would take the wrapping paper away first of all) but I would tell him to stop it. If he didn't I would give him a little slap and tell him to stop it more forcefully. Did the mother do any thing like that ? NO she just ignored it. Ok so I know I know after awhile of having two kids that do things they're told not to you might not even try to stop them, but when it's offensive to EVERYONE around you in the aisle, the polite thing to do would be to TELL THEM TO STOP. Back to the original BRAWL part. Well the mother confronts me and says "What did you say ? I heard you etc etc." At that point I just walked away and my mom's friend backed me up and explained etc. My mom's friend said the lady threatened to "kick my @$$." So yes I suppose that explains a lot about her parenting skills and demenor (sp?) in general. That was my excitement for the day ;)
The Friday Five a day late :)

1) How many houses/apartments have you lived in throughout your life ?

Hmmmm six. I was born in NJ and lived in a small house there until I was two years old and we moved to Florida. Then we lived in our current house until I was about eight and my parents bought and moved into the motel. Then we stayed a little while in this little house near the motel which we all called the 'little house.' Then we lived at the motel in an apartment there and then moved back into our current house. Then last fall I moved into a dorm which I share with 3 other girls and a bathroom and living room I share with 3 other girls besides my roommates. And I'll be moving back home in a few weeks for the summer :)

2) Which was your favorite and why ?

Our current house because I have my first memories in this house and its nice and spacious.

3) Do you find moving more stressful or exciting ? Why ?

Stressful - I hate packing things up

4) What's more important location or price ?

A nice combo of both :)

5) What does your dream house have (pool, spa bath, big yard, etc.) ?

Indoor pool, hot tub, big kitchen with cook hehe, big yard, close to where we like to eat, big master bedroom and bathroom, 2 -3 bedrooms, one or two stories doesn't matter ;)
