Moving and Puppies

Hey everyone! Well I'm almost all moved into my apartment. I got internet today and it's so much faster than my old one! Yahoo!!!

I'm so glad to get all my stuff out of storage... mainly my books ;o) and I'm liking my new apartment alot.

I'm not getting a lot of sleep because I'm orphaned puppy-sitting. I mentioned before that my uncle-in-law has a ton of Boxers because he used to raise them, well two of them had puppies last Friday (the day we moved lol). All of Portia's puppies died and Katrina had to have a C-section to get her remaining two out, one of which died yesterday. Since she refused to feed it, nobody but me has the time to take care of the remaining one so that's what I've been doing in between cleaning and unpacking. Thankfully he's doing really good so far so *fingers crossed*

What's Going On

The next couple of weeks are going to be crazy for me because I’m going to visit my family in Georgia for a week (I’m leaving next Saturday). I should still be able to keep in touch with everyone while I’m gone though. When I get back (actually the day I get back lol) Darren and I are moving again! The only drawback is that I won’t have the internet for a week or so unless I go to the library and use the computers there :(

I’m trying to look on the bright side... at least I’ll have plenty of time to read!!!

A Late Friday Feast

If you could be any current celebrity for one whole week, who would you want to be?

I honestly don't have a clue. They all lead such public lives! I want to say whoever is married to Jason Dohring but I don't think she's a celebrity at all.

On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how much do you enjoy talking on the phone?


Name a charitable organization to which you have donated (or would like to).


Main Course
What is a food you like so much you could eat it every single day for a month?
Chicken. I can eat it morning, noon, and night!

Have you or anyone in your family had the flu this year?
Not yet but the way the weather keeps getting hot and then cold, (I had the air on last night and the heat on today) it probably won't be long.

6 Things You May Not Know About Me

Kate Diamond tagged me for a meme where I will reveal to you 6 facts about me that are not widely known:

  1. I'm a huge Disney nut but I've never been to any of the Disney amusement parks
  2. I love old musicals
  3. Two of my favorite scents are kind of unusual, new books and new money
  4. I hate onions and bellpeppers more for their texture than taste (although they do taste bad too)
  5. I'm always thinking about something, my brain never seems to just shut off
  6. I'd really like to travel and see the world one day

I'd really rather not tag anyone who doesn't feel like playing so if this sounds like fun, you're tagged!
