Forgot to mention I changed the graphics on our website the other day. I need to re-do a few more pages on there, add more links to LDR couples and etc. Maybe soon. I just got this from blinkie obsession:

Tatty Teddy Xmas

Cute ;)

My Niece and Nephew :)

I'm not very chatty - not too much to talk about. Just reading stuff for Brit Lit and getting ready to go home tomorrow afternoon for Turkey Day - and some R & R but probably won't get too much of that as I have to bring a lot of stuff home with me that needs to get done!

Xmas Shopping

Ooo okay I have finally started real xmas shopping. I've never really done xmas shopping online before but since I'm so busy I have this year. I ordered this for my mom today. Its something she's wanted since she went to Ireland and saw one there 20+ years ago. They have one on the Irish shop here in St. Augustine but it was double the price of the one I found online. It'll be shipped from Ireland! Praying that it arrive in one piece!

Cold weather, turkey, and cool facts

Brrr its cold outside tonight all of a sudden. Well it wasn't too warm today and it rained a good deal in the morning, then it got sunny and nice, then it got cold when the sun went down. Feels very wintery and nice ;) They had Thanksgiving dinner in the dining hall tonight - yummy! Had apple pie and ice cream for dessert mmmm.

Busy yet doing nothing?...

Yes thats me. I have so much to do but I'm in the library blog hopping and blogging. Hmph. Actually I came here to work on my editing project for Mass Media Production but I need to be at a certain mac in the mac lab and someone is using it right now so I'm just hanging out waiting for them to be done. I should do something for productive though.

My weekend was okay. I stayed here on Friday night because I had to meet my group on Saturday at 2pm to film a belly dancing class for our field production project. Well the instructor of the belly dancing class never showed up - grrr. So we decided to meet on Sunday and tape the dancers for our school. So on Saturday afternoon I drove home. I didn't do much at home - wanted to call Pete so I did that. But we didn't really chat much because he had to go to bed early (he was doing overtime again this weekend.) I fell asleep on the couch while watching TV. On Sunday I chatted to Pete a little bit (we actually forgot it was our anniversary until midway through our chatting.) His package from me still hasn't gotten there :( Was suppose to be there by last Friday. Then I went to my sister's and my parents and family arrived an hour or so after me. We had a good time playing with the babies and chatting with my sister and our relatives from NJ. My mom's aunt is doing great - back to normal :) I didn't get to chat with Pete again because I had to leave my sister's by 5pm to get back here by 6:30pm to tape the dancers. We still need more footage of the game tomorrow night so hopefully I can get that. Have been doing research for my 7 page Brit Lit paper due I think the Friday before Finals. Ugh so much to do better get off here and do something productive! Ooo I also weighed myself on Sunday. I've lost another 3 lbs - bringing my total weight lost to 20-21 lbs yay. Was a bit surprised as I haven't been trying too hard to keep to Atkins and I'm getting really bored with my WATP for Abs. I want to get the 1,2,3 Mile WATP Express soon. Anyway I better be off here!

Thursday Already ?

Wow this week has flown by. Usually that's a good thing but when you have TONS to do before Turkey day break its not a good thing at all! After Thanksgiving break we only have one week of classes left before finals! So I have a week and a half to get mostly everything done. Then a week after that to get the rest of it done. And then find time to study for finals ???!!! FC needs to think their schedule out a bit better I think! This probably isn't making much sense to non-college people. Anyway. I hadn't been talking to Pete a lot this week - mostly because of group meetings where half the people don't show up or we send an hour laughing at nothing much. So yesterday we had no classes so after I pre-registered for next Spring I went to Walmart, got a phone card, and called Pete in the afternoon :) We had a nice chat for about an hour. His anniversary package should be there by tomorrow (doubt if it will be though - stupid Royal Mail.) Wow our anniversary is officially on Sunday! Well its the date we made up a few years ago since, like many others who met online - we don't remember the actual date we met or when we really became a 'couple.' But it was around mid-November :) Wow he will be here in less than a month!!!! I'm sure I'll be more excited when it gets closer and there is an end to my crazy existence! I really need a month off but I'll have to wait another few weeks!

Wow my world is rather unscripted lately. On Friday my mom's relatives came in from NJ. Two of her aunts and her uncle. The one aunt comes down here every year or twice a year for a certain amount of time, but the others haven't ever been to visit here really. So everything was great on Friday. Saturday morning, the one aunt who hasn't ever been here can't talk. It turns out she had a mini-stroke in her sleep. Well my mom ended up convincing her to go to the hospital. She should get out tomorrow - and her speech is back and her left side (that was somewhat paralyzed) is back to normal for the most part. It was just bizarre. Seems she had 2 strokes before this one, one was 3 years ago and she never knew about it or anything. That also happened to my dad, they think he had a mini stroke a year or so ago but he never really felt anything. So yeah. I spent most of yesterday in the hospital - which brought back tons of memories of visiting my sister after her car accident and my mom when she was doing treatments for breast cancer. I hate hospitals, not that anyone really loves them. But at least everyone I have ever really visited in one has gone home fine.

On a lighter note - classes are cancelled here for pre-registration on Weds. I have tons to get done though so I might just buckle down and get it over with then. Ooo I found out they opened two World Market stores in FL, both are pretty close to each other and about an hour away from my school. So Pete and I might take a road trip to the closest one when he's here. Wow he will be here in like 31 days! Ah! I really have to start xmas shopping for him when I have some time! Ooo check out these sexy people ;-P

Awww yay my package from Pete came today :) He got me a Welsh Love spoon (the exact one that I linked to.) A really lovely romantic card (which was a surprise as he usually gets me the cute Me-to-You or Forever Friends cards but this one is special.) Ooo he got the spoon engraved. On the front is says "Always and Forever Yours" and on the back it says "For Julie, the most beautiful girl in the world, Pete" Awwwww! Ooo and he got me Guylian seashells mmmm I already ate three must ration them out better ;)

Motivation (or lack thereof)

I'm totally unmotivated. Earlier I got all dressed to exercise and went to put in the DVD and suddenly it dawned on me, "I really don't want to do this..." So I put the DVD back and came online. I'm just tired. This week has been relatively un-chaotic. I have four weeks of school left pretty much, and so much to do. Why oh why do they want to cram EVERYTHING into a few weeks ? I guess I shouldn't complain, I get a full month off for xmas. Pete is coming in 36 days and I'm not too excited - just because that means I have 35 days to get all MY CRAP DONE. Schedules for Spring term came out today - why do they never give you enough classes to get a good amount of credits in one semester without having at least one class that you don't need but take because its the only thing to fill a slot ? Abnormal psych is looking to be that class next semester - I was considering a psych minor (which isn't very hard I think a total of 15 credits in psych classes about the 100 (freshman) level - easy) but do I want to commit to that ? On top of my double major ? I dunno. I like the teacher whose teaching abnormal psych but he's pretty indepth. Hmph. Oh its Bonfire night. As posted below...graphic is by Jennie (image is linked to her.) I really don't know too much about bonfire night so here is a site about it if you care. Anyway I have to do something productive!!!

Just needed to share that I got a dozen roses today from Pete!!! Ahhh! The arrangement is bigger than my head... I mean HUGE in a glass vase with a burgundy colored bow and baby's breath and green foliage all around them - probably sounds pretty silly but they're GORGEOUS! I don't have my digital camera here :( I might go and buy a disposable camera tomorrow or something so at least I have a picture of them - I do that with all my flowers I get lol (not that I've gotten a lot - I think Pete's sent me flowers 3 times before.) Anyway I'm so happy! I was putting mail in the boxes (my job) and i looked in my box and i saw the slip for flowers that everyone gets when they get flowers. You can not image how quickly I put the rest of the mail up! Anyway I have to get to class!


Hi. Hope everyone is okay ;) I've been busy as usual lately. Hope everyone had a happy halloween, I did pretty much nothing - went to Walmart with a girl in one of the clubs I'm in to get decorations for Saturday (for an event we were having.) Yesterday was the event at parent's weekend - we decorated all the tables and everything was set up and then it rained :( So it had to all be moved inside. Grrr, but then after like 15 mins it was sunny and bright outside - ugh FL weather! My parents and brothers came up for the thing yesterday and it was good to see them.

Umm I got Bend it Like Beckham on dvd this morning - watched it this afternoon. Its really cute. You would have to know England fairly well to know some of the stuff but it was really cute. If anyone is into the Indian/English culture differences type films a really funny one is East is East. Though I'm pretty sure its Rated R and you have to know a lot more about England to understand it but Pete and I watched it when I was there last winter I think and it was really funny.

Oooo I should be getting two presents from Pete this week so I'll be sure to post when they come. The Royal Mail has gone on strike again so he has to send my anniversary package via some special mailing thing for like £37 instead of the £6 it would be to send it through the regular post. But the bonus is it should be here this week! yay. And the other present I have no idea!
