Looking for a pet??

So just in case you are lucky enough to be able to have a pet, check out the Save our strays website. All of these pets are located in Maine and are looking for good homes.

Life is so unfair...

Why do I have to be allergic to everything?!? All I want is a puppy ~ this puppy ~ to hug and squeeze and kiss and love. (pout) Posted by Hello

Wally is the man...

So yesterday my other husband, Wally, showed up with his hard drive of 6,000 songs (and that is not Jaime exaggeration) from his Ipods (yes, plural, he has 4) and let me go nuts. I got to add a whole boatload (he he) of new music to my Itunes library. I'll be doing some major CD-burning over the next couple of days... starting with a "high school flashbacks" CD that I've been wanting to make for Sonya for ages!! WOOO HOOO... thanks, Wally!!

A lot of things different...

I love it when there is a song I really want to hear and then I find out I have the CD. Along the theme of these days, I've been craving the song "A lot of things different..." by Kenny Chesney. Last night at dinner I asked Renee which CD it was on and come to find out... I have it! Yay! So... I've been listening to the same song all day today... on repeat over and over. It's really depressing, yeah, but I love it. Sigh...

I'd spend a lot more time in the pouring rain without an umbrella covering my head
And I'd stood up to that bully when he pushed and called me names but I was too afraid
And I'd a gone on and saw Elvis that night he came to town but mama said I couldn't
And I'd a went skinny dipping with Jenny Carson that time she dared me to but I didn't
Oh I, I'd done a lot of things different
I wished I'd a spent more time with my dad when he was alive now I don't have the chance
I wish I had told my brother how much I loved him before he went off to war but I just shook his hand
And I wish I had gone to church on Sunday morning when my grandma begged me too
But I was afraid of God
And I wish I would've listened when they said Boy, you're gonna wish you hadn't but I wouldn't
Oh I, I'd done a lot of things different
People say they wouldn't change a thing, even if they could Oh but I would
There was this red dress she wanted one time so bad she could taste it and I should've bought it, but I didn't
She wanted to paint our bedroom yellow and trim it blues and greens but I wouldn't let her, wouldn't a hurt nuthin
She loved to be held and kissed and touched but I didn't do it not nearly enough
And if I'd a known that dance was going to be our last dance I'd a asked that band to play on and on on and on

This is my sappy song-of-the-day. Along the same lines as Garth Brook's "The Dance" ... another one of my sappy favorites.

So I haven't posted all week... mostly because I've had a yucky week. Let me say a belated thank you to all of the people to donated to Big Brothers/ Big Sisters by sponsoring me for my bowlathon a few weeks ago!:
  1. Lori
  2. Pam
  3. Renee
  4. Darcy
  5. Tammy
  6. Ryan
  7. Wally
  8. Angie
  9. Jack & Diane
  10. Amy
  11. Michelle
  12. Steve
  13. Keith
  14. Gary & Charlene

So what's so wrong with the movie "Starsky & Hutch" anyway? The reviews for this movie were really poor and it seems like everyone I talked to told me that it was bad. I thought it was funny. Not the best movie I've ever seen... but it's no Fargo, either.

I am about to watch the sequel to my favorite movie of all time: Ocean's 11. Everyone is preparing me that I will be disappointed by Ocean's 12, which is why I didn't go see it in the theater. We'll see...

It's just not right...

Boys should not be allowed to listen to Ani Difranco. It should be part of some DON'T-LET-MALES-LISTEN-TO-FOLK-MUSIC law. It's just not right. Boys are supposed to listen to Pearl Jam and rap music and sports-talk radio. Yeah, that's right.

Shawn has been consumed with men's league basketball and the Red Sox so he hasn't been around much over the past few weeks. I'm looking forward to my weekend... lounging around with him tonight, going to dinner with Kevin and Miranda tomorrow and going to see the Sox on Sunday with Amy. I'm hoping that my latest Neflix pick (Spanglish) will be in the mailbox today when I get home, although I have a feeling this will be a movie that I enjoy more than Shawn.

If you don't already have Netflix, JOIN NOW! It is the best thing ever. My best friend, Amy, bought me a gift subscription for 2 months! I've had it for over a month now and don't know if I could ever live without it. They have every movie imaginable and you make a huge list of movies that you want to watch and they send them to you in that order. You can change the order at any time or delete movies you no longer want to see. The turnaround time is amazing! You drop the postage-paid DVD in the mail and they receive it the very next day. This blows my mind b/c when you send out a letter or bill, it takes about 3 weeks. That day they mail out your next DVD and you get it the following day. So two days after you mail out a DVD, you have a new one in hand. Before Netflix we watched about 1 movie a week. Now I watch 4. I'm definitely getting my money's worth! At $18/ month for unlimited 3-at-a-time movies, I end up barely paying over $1 a piece. The best part: I never have to go to the movie store or worry about getting a movie back on time. It's great. Get it. You'll love it, too.

Today I got a visit from my buddy, Steve, and I have my nieces with me at work. Kayla is 8 and Hannah is 6. They're not doing much in the way of entertaining me because at the moment they are engrossed in Lizzie McGuire. Hannah, who is a chocoholic like her auntie, just put down 1/2 a stack of thin mints (the rule was 'only two!') while I was on the phone. Even I can't eat that fast. So... needless to say, I'm expecting someone to have a belly ache very soon...

Where did my fertility post go?

So for those of you who noticed that my post on infertility is gone... that was my mother's doing. She apparently has never been to any of the vast numbers of other blogs out there (sothefishsaid, alittlepregnant & many more) where there is some major griping about infertility. So, at her strict insistence, I am no longer "allowed" to post about my struggles with infertility.

So, I haven't posted in a few days... mostly because my life is, well... boring. Is it so wrong that I beg the cable guy to play UNO with me? Is it so bad that when someone comes in to rent a unit, I make up printer jam stories to keep them here longer? Don't judge until you're forced to spend many many hours each week with yourself.

Have you seen...

Napolean Dynamite?? The first time I saw this movie I thought it was lame. Am I freakin' obsessed with it now? HECK YES I AM! I think that everyone should have to see this movie atleast 3 times so that when Michelle and I say things like "Go find your own tots" and "I'm pretty much the best that I know of", everyone knows what the fuss is all about. Another great flick that I saw recently: Love, Actually. At the end of the movie I actually realized that I had been smiling (all by myself) for about 1/2 hour.

The Good Stuff

So these are my very favorite things in life...
  1. FOOD (especially Cadbury eggs/mini eggs, turkey, Longhorn potatoes, Heidi's chocolate chip cookies, Hodgman's frozen custard, watermelon, corn-on-the-cob, my mother-in-law's whoopie pies, steak & CHOCOLATE.
  2. Friends (My best friend roster includes, but not limited to: Amy, Pam, Shawn, Sonya, Michelle, Heidi, Renee, Wally, Deb & Darcy)
  3. Babies.
  4. Kayla, Hannah, Camryn, Caleb & Isabelle.
  5. Sleeping.
  6. Playing basketball and swimming in a warm pool.
  7. Vin Diesel.
  8. Watching movies on a rainy day.
  9. A perfectly clean house.
  10. Shopping.

So sweet...

Posted by Hello

For all of you who are questioning why I want to spend thousands of dollars at a risk of having *several* babies at once, I give you "the hand". How sweet is this smaller-than-a-cream-saver hand?? Posted by Hello

This is my NEW place!!!

Hi everyone!!

I'm new to the blogging world... so be patient! For those of you who don't know me, my name is Jaime and I live in Maine with my husband, Shawn (who, obviously, is obsessed with basketball). I am 27 and the hubby turns the big 3-0 this upcoming January. We are currently childless (we have been trying for two years) and petless (I am allergic to everything that walks, flies or drifts). We bought a brand new house 6 months ago and that is my baby for now. I have OCD and am therefore a total neat freak. I have also been referred to as the "scrapbook nazi" because I am obsessed with scrapbooking. Email me to order your Creative Memories scrapbook supplies! I never used to be a "craft-geek"... I used to be a basketball nut like my hubby ...but well, ya know...
