Things have been crazy busy lately. Work stuff, traveling for work, and lots of excellent personal stuff happening.

The biggest thing is that I've been searching for a new place to live come this summer, and as of today, unless something majorly drastic happens, my offer on a two-story townhouse was accepted! I signed the paperwork and gave the first $2000 up for the deposit. I'm so excited. It was the place I wanted, and I knew it was the right place as soon as I saw it. It's got an ideal upstairs with the perfect spot for my computer desk (for Chris the HP) and writing stuff. I'm really happy. And again, unless something weird happens in escrow, the place is mine. Plus, it's a bit closer to work and in a great neighborhood/complex. Plus, the offer the seller accepted was way lower than we thought they'd take, plus they're kicking back a bit of the closing cost! I'm feeling oddly accomplished with my first home buying...and I'm feeling like a grown-up. Heh. My family has been so awesome with the help, and they're just as excited. Same goes for my co-workers and good friends, who have been so excited for me and have been just as anxious as I have for any news on the offers and the places I'd found. I'm grateful for a lot of the people in my life.

So yeah, the next two months are going to be very busy as the escrow process occurs and I hope and pray nothing goes south. I will be keeping my fingers crossed for days, methinks. I am happy, but cautious.

Random things: Glee rocks. Just...it's awesome. I'm just in love with it. Meep.

And Sunday night's Academy of Country Music awards? Freakin' awesome. Let's put it this way, Song and Single of the Year and Top Vocal Group? The right winner won and I may have cried for said winner. Same goes for Record of the Year and Female Vocalist. Totally deserved. A bit bitter about Male Vocalist and Entertainer, but I digress on that. Moreso bitter about Entertainer of the Year. Seriously?! Coughcough. Also, Top New Artist was deserved too...the artist makes me smile a lot. Heh.

So yeah, busy busy times. I love it. =)

Happy!

Wow...long time no post. Meep. Nothing really substantial to say, to be honest. I've been busy with work and things. Am on the hunt for my first house, and I've been spending time with the family. Work is definitely keeping me busy in many good ways, but things get stressful at the same time.

Been busy on the writing front too...there's been some definite plot progress on the novel, and I am feeling somewhat accomplished. Still on track to make my goal this year for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout. Yay! I've gotten a couple of new writing books and have really gotten a good start on a little binder of scene ideas and such. I even made a fanmix of songs for my main pairing for inspiration and it seems to be helping. I will have something substantial by the end of the year. I actually posted a small scene in a comment over at GYWO a couple of days ago..something I never thought I'd do.

The dad and I are going to pore over the Giants home schedule to pick out a few more games to attend besides the Red Sox in June. YAY baseball...I have missed it so. The dad and I are also planning to go to Tim McGraw/Lady Antebellum in May...woohoo! I so look forward to seeing three of my favorite, favorite singers. And technically, speaking of Charles Kelley...I am beyond excited for Josh Kelley's upcoming country album. It is going to be fantastic as always, but Josh is an incredibly underrated artist. He's a wonderful songwriter and singer, and I really hope he finally gets the credit he deserves.

And of course, I really couldn't resist a music meme....

You can learn a lot about someone from the music they listen to. Here's the game: hit shuffle on your music player, and write down the first 25 songs that come up. No cheating or skipping songs.
25 random songs...shuffle is fuuuuuunnnn! )

It's been awhile. Not a ton to say,but hey.

Valentine's Day was nice, and spent with my parents. Saturday we went to a later lunch and went to the movies. The mom and I saw "Valentine's Day" (love!), and the dad went and saw "The Wolfman". There was drooling over Eric Dane by me, for the record. Guh. Just guh. But the dad gave me a pretty red rose (which sits on my nightstand at the moment) and a Target gift card, and the mom gave me a gorgeous new pink purse and matching wallet. Hee. I am addicted to pink and to purses.

Work is good. Tiring, but good.

Am trying to plan a trip to Oregon in April to see the BFF (hahaha!), her husband, and my niece and nephews. Hoping it will all pan out! It also looks like Dad and I will be going to Vegas sometime this summer. I haven't been there in 7 years!

The writing is a challenge so far this year, but I'm relatively sticking to it! Some days are better than others, let me tell you! I have so much story in my brain, and yet, sometimes it just doesn't flow. But I'll get it there, and by golly, I'll have 100k written for In The Spotlight. Because...yes.

Music wise...am completely in love with Lady Antebellum's sophomore effort "Need You Now". They sound amazing, and there's not one song I skip. Amazing songs again. NYN is a given, but I'm in love with "Love This Pain" and "Hello World". Gah. And I lovelovelove how Charles thanks his brother Josh again in the liner notes. It made me smile. I am so looking forward to Josh's new country album within the next few months.

Am currently listening to several live shows from John Mayer that I dled yesterday. He's been doing "In Your Atmosphere" again lately---I love that! At Birmingham, he mixed it with "Something's Missing". Sigh. Love! And geez, he did "Free Fallin'" too. He's trying to kill me. Seriously. I'm still in love with Battle Studies as well. Heartbreak Warfare just kills me. Thank goodness it's the current single!

Ugh. Bed now. Work most of the week, and have Friday off. I've been glued to the Olympic coverage, and I'm knitting a blanket for a friend/former co-worker who is having a baby this summer. So many projects! Heh.

Hope you all are well. Good night! (morning?!?)

Utterly addicted to John Mayer's amazing "Battle Studies". Fantastic album. Oy. So much love. Heartbreak Warfare, Half Of My Heart (w/ Taylor Swift), Assassin, Perfectly Lonely. Amazing, all of it!!!

It's been kind of a bad couple of days. Started getting sick on Thanksgiving Day, and was full blown sick on Black Friday. Yeah, hello--color me a retail grunt. I love working the holidays (and yes, I am being sincere), so being sick on Black Friday sucked. I muddled through, and still went in to wok on Saturday, obviously not feeling well. Luckily, I have a great boss who sent me home at like, 1 pm. I went straight to Urgent Care, where I then proceeded to get my ears stuck with sticks (literally), and leave with three prescriptions. Joy of all joys, back on an antibiotic, a steroid for the inflammation, and ear drops for my ears. And a nose spray. Gah!

I then proceeded to have a minor meltdown on Satruday afternoon, wherein there was a lot of crying and feeling pathetic (I hate being sick, seriously). There was also a lot of fighting with my computer, which has been having issues since McAfee decided to be stupid and reinstall itself, then proceed not to work. So yeah, Leo the Gateway essentially got a virus and died. Ugh. So during said meltdown, the parents, in an effort to keep me from being all pathetic, took me to Sam's Club. This is where I ended up buying myself a brand new HP desktop with an amazing monitor and a slimline CPU. Way cool. I admit to being in a weakened condition when I made the purchase, but I am so glad that I did. The computer's name is Chris (gah, I know. It was going to be Zach, but the name just didn't seem to fit. Heh. It was then going to be Finn, but then I remembered that that is what my mother named my Wii.) and he is so awesome.

I've spent all evening backing up my iTunes music from the old computer, and it took 16 cd's to do so, but I have all my music, apps, and podcasts back! Now, I just have to redo all of my playlists, which sucks, but it won't take long, I don't think. Then I can sync Timmy the Pod to the computer and be all up and running.

Oy...off to bed. The meds are kicking in and I know it'll kick my butt soon. Work the next couple of days, and have two days off to recover some more. I actually used sick time the last couple of days, which I never do...but I needed it.

...that have made me very happy over the last few hours:

1) CSI: Miami. Oh, show. Love. Undying devotion to my red-haired boyfriend, I tell you. And that H called Ray "Dr. Ray". And that Langston called Calleigh "Miss Calleigh". I am SO loving this crossover! Can't wait for NY and Vegas this week. I really loved David and Lawrence together...you can really see their longtime friendship in the performances!

2) iTunes finally putting up Jimmy Wayne's amazing cover of "Sara Smile". Oy. He is freakin' incredible, and having Hall and Oates on the cover version is so cool. Daryl Hall says that JW's version is the best cover version he's ever heard. What a compliment!

3) New LJ friends! *waves* I swear I'll do an 'about me' post sometime soon. =) But in the meantime...welcome to my fangirl-ish life!

4) Realizing that three of my favorite boys will be in my life on the same day next week. Haha. Not only do I get John Mayer's new album "Battle Studies", but I get my Chris and Zach and "Star Trek" on the 17th! YAY! Going to be a terrific day.

5) Started a new writing blog on Wordpress. We'll see how far I get. Heh.

That is all. Bed now. Work at 11 am. We have a DD visit---am slightly nervous, but all will be good!

Good night!

Um. Eep. I apparently haven't updated in six weeks. Color me a slacker. I have no real excuse except for work has been crazy and I've just been distracted by other things lately.

Yeah. Work is good. I love that place, I really do. Business is good, and we're really gearing up for holiday. I've been with EB for almost 10 months now and it feels like home. The 'place I used to work' didn't feel like home for a good year. Now? I'm so--happy. Even when I have to go in and work on my day off, I know I can complain to my boss a bit and get a chuckle out of her, and then I can get over it and get my butt on the sales floor and run the business! Love it and my work peoples.

New music rules my life. I've really been stuck on Miranda Lambert's "Revolution" and Michael Buble's "Crazy Love" the past couple of weeks, and I am beyond excited for John Mayer's "Battle Studies" next month. Finally a new Mayer album! YAY! Also psyched for the Glee soundtrack. January 26th, 2010 is Lady A's sophomore record, "Need You Now". Woohoo! Now if I could just get a new Josh Kelley album and Josh Groban ("Who is Josh Groban!?! Kill yourself!") album, all would be good.

TV rocks this season. Glee rules my life at the moment. I am nothing if not a Gleek. The Big Bang Theory owns me, as I adore Sheldon. Jim Parsons is the most adorable thing. NCIS and CSI: NY are awesome again this season, and my CSI: Miami is so back to the show I adore. Loving this season to pieces (how can I not love my red-haired boyfriend!?). Also loving Grey's Anatomy again this season. And as wrong as it may be, I just cannot get into NCIS: LA, regardless of how hot LL Cool J is. Maybe I'll watch it after the season ends and see. It's just not my thing at the moment, I suppose. It's nothing without my Tony. Heh.

Writing is still going strong for [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout. I'm up about 10,000 words on the year, so this is of the good. I have dug back in to the novel a bit more lately, as the muse may possibly be creeping back there. If I could keep the muse on that subject, I would be a happy camper!

The parents got me a Wii for my birthday a week or so ago, and I've been having way too much fun with that thing. Addicted to the bowling, baseball, and tennis. Bought MLB 2K9 for it the other day, since my Timmy is the cover boy. have been fussing with the Wii Fit thing the last few days too. I love the hula hoop!

Yeah. Rambling now. Off to write...or something. =)

Um. Eep. I apparently haven't updated in six weeks. Color me a slacker. I have no real excuse except for work has been crazy and I've just been distracted by other things lately.

Yeah. Work is good. I love that place, I really do. Business is good, and we're really gearing up for holiday. I've been with EB for almost 10 months now and it feels like home. The 'place I used to work' didn't feel like home for a good year. Now? I'm so--happy. Even when I have to go in and work on my day off, I know I can complain to my boss a bit and get a chuckle out of her, and then I can get over it and get my butt on the sales floor and run the business! Love it and my work peoples.

New music rules my life.

before I keel over from the effects of the NyQuil I took not long ago. Fairly sure UI am both slightly sick and dealing with an allergy attack that has taken my vocal cords over once more. At least now I know the trigger. Ugh. Anyone who knows what my voice sounds like normally--now think of it a good octave loer and all croak-y. Yeah, real attractive, let me tell you.

On the up side, at least I am not up to par this weekend instead of this coming weekend, as Dad and I are going to one more Giants game. This'll be our fifth game of the season! We've seen the Timmy three times, Randy Johnson once, and this time should be Jonathan Sanchez. Whee! If not, it'll either be Matt Cain or Brad Penny (who, by the way, was an awesome addition to our rotation!). I was hoping for Barry Zito, but perhaps next season. *g* This last game we are going to, I am going all out orange and black. May even go and get my nails done in team colors. We shall see. I have jewelry all ready, my scarf, my jersey, and black and orange ribbons for my hair AND I bought a shiny orange purse on Amazon. Meep. I am nothing if not devoted.

Work is good. We've been busy and starting to gear up for holiday. But overall, work is good and I lovelovelove it. I've made some good friends, that's for sure. Am contemplating going to Disneyland with a couple of them around my birthday, but we shall see.

Writing is still good. I've slacked the last couple of days because I haven't been feeling up to it, but I am up over at least 8000 words to where I should be, so I can afford to slack a bit. But I've had a couple of story things in my head lately, so this is a good thing. I went and bought a new laptop a couple of weeks ago. Got a nifty little red Acer netbook for a great price at Sam's Club, and I adore the thing (whose name is Aaron, I have to mention). The mom got a nifty pink zippered case for it, and I got a cooling pad, and I love it! I'm using it solely for my writing, and I'm still getting used to the tiny keyboard.

David Nail's album ("I'm About To Come Alive") came out two weeks ago and I've listened to it non-stop. Absolutely amazing CD, and I am so proud to have been a fan since the beginning. Sigh. Beyond proud of him!

And my dear [livejournal.com profile] bookofdays has gotten me hooked on the vocal talent of Christian Kane. Holy crap with the awesome voice. Adore, man.

Ugh. NyQuil is starting to settle in, as the typing has to keep getting corrected. Off to down some more echinecea and go to bed. Work at 9:30 am. Happy Labor Day. Heh.

Good night.
