Happy New Year

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne? And days of auld lang syne, my dear,
And days of auld lang syne.
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne?
We twa hae run aboot the braes
And pu'd the gowans fine.
We've wandered mony a weary foot,
Sin' auld lang syne.
Sin' auld lang syne, my dear,
Sin' auld lang syne,
We've wandered mony a weary foot,
Sin' auld ang syne.
We twa hae sported i' the burn,
From morning sun till dine,
But seas between us braid hae roared
Sin' auld lang syne.
Sin' auld lang syne, my dear,
Sin' auld lang syne.
But seas between us braid hae roared
Sin' auld lang syne.
And ther's a hand, my trusty friend,
And gie's a hand o' thine;
We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak' a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne

Happy 2007, everyone!

Ok I just saw a commercial for next thursday's CSI.. Terrible news, everybody! Gil Grissom is leaving the show!!! I'm not sure if it's voluntary or not, but either way, I plan to boycott CSI from now on! After all, what is CSI without Grissom? He makes the show. As imdb says,
"Grissom is the wise, well educated loner, who seems to be the tough yet soft mentor to the rest of the crew. He likes to play with bugs and at times he seems not to forget what it means to be social. "
I wish you well, William Petersen.

Merry Sarah Day

Since my grandparents just gave me money as opposed to a gift, I decided to spoil myself! Always good once in a while. I went and got a hair cut..for those of you who remember, I got a haircut the day we went to the WAVE kind of looks like that :) Chin length, flippy, and adorable. Got loads of new products to go with it, and a new shirt to boot. I feel like a whole new woman! So needless to say..I'm happy. Also, got 6 gorgous new sweaters for Christmas, 32 (yes, thirty two!) new pairs of earrings, and a portable dvd player, among many other gifts. So! Merry Sarah Day, everyone!

Good Bad day

So!This is probably the worst best day ever, or the best bad day. Either way! Work was H E Double hockey sticks, like I knew it would be. But before work dad, lisa and I went out for lunch, then lisa and I cruised the mall, then dad told me he and mom were matching what I was paying for my course. So far so good! And Rob let me get that 10 for $10 from Icings, so I got some new earrings and hair pretties to perk me up. Work though...Honestly was the most stressful and busy day I have ever had at San Fran EVER. I mean, last year halloween was rough, when Colleen and I did nothing but ring people through for like 6 hours straight. This on the other hand, was people needing to know prices, and oh can you get that picture down for me, and oh can you put batteries in this so I can see what it does? UUURg. And roberta was going out tonight since it's friday, so I let her go @ 8:30 even though she was scheduled till 9. And Ellen was gone at like 3, because her bf got fired yesterday and she had stuff to figure out etc. Tina brought over the presents from her and cody tonight, since cody has to work boxing day and that was the day we're going to strath to do my side..I got an awesomely gorgeous sweater..makes my boobs look good LOL. That makes three sweaters for christmas so far, which is pretty much all I wanted tee hee. Sorry. No teeheeing . I've had like 3 rock stars in the span of 8 hours just to keep going, and I popped some tylenols at about 6..I think they're finally meeting. For the past 4 days I've popped a couple xtra strengths half way through my shft, cuz of killer headaches..I tell myself its the stress, which I really hope it is. Anyways, cant concentrate on my music while I'm writing. Rob downloaded the new Evanescence CD for me *huge grin* Anyways, we leave for Ste. Anne bright and early tomorrow morning, meaning I probably won't post till after Christmas, as they only have (ech) dial up there heehee. So, merry Christmas to all!!!

Week from Heck

Yes, that's what this is going to be. The week from heck. I work transit today, which is as you know, 9-7. But since my starter in my car is dead, Rob had to drive me on his way to work, so I was here at 7:45. Urrg. So I kind of slept beside my cash register for an hour lol. Anyways, then tues, wed, thurs, and friday I have 8 hour shifts at San Fran. Now, tues or wed Theresa is going to show up (she's the district manager) who last time she was here, threatened to fire ppl if the condition of the store didn't improve. Well, comon, crunch time before Christmas here- if it doesn't get better than it was on Saturday, ...someone's getting fired LOL. And friday I have to work 2:30- 10:30. The mall is open to 10 since its the last friday before Christmas. Blaaarg. But! Once I get it over with, if I survive it, Rob and I have our Christmas morning on the 23rd before packing up and heading to winipeg, which marks the beginning of 5 glorious days off. Take that.

News most excellent! I, Sarah Meush, will be returning to the educational journey. I will be enrolling in a Medical Terminalogy (MT) Certification course (MT lvls 1 & 2), starting January 13th. It runs for 10 weeks on Saturdays, 9-12 in the morning. The nice thing about it is that not only can I still work while taking it because it's only one short session a week, but it almost guarantees me a secretary or clerk position after completion, as EVERY one of those positions require the completion of that course. The only down side is the cost - $500 buckaroos. Which might not sound like a lot to some people, but when it's out of your own pocket, trust me .. it hurts. But Rob is amazing enough to sacrifice most of our Christmas money so that I can take it. Luckily we have all of our presents bought already, minus ours to eachother lol. I guess this is technically his present to me. Anyways, SO excited!! This combined with my clerical experience from transit will almost guarantee me a position after I finish it. And since the lowest wage starts at $12 an hour, I will be making as much as Rob. That will double my income! Oh, it shall be wonderful. :)

Feeling kinda dumpy

Down in the dumps, that is. I feel like life is just kind of plodding along..Every day I go to work, come home to tired to even look at dishes or laundry or anything like that..but if I don't do them they'll sit there till judgement day. Still, do I do them? Hah. More like curl up with a book, that's about all the energy I have these days. Winter sucks. I blame winter. I've been getting dizzy spells lately, it's weird. Like in church yesterday- just for a minute , maybe less, I felt so light headed and like the world was spinning (okay so the world IS spinning, but you know what I mean.) It's 9:30 a.m. already but it's still really dark and cloudy and dreary. Blech. Not helping to improve my awakeness. I feel like scrooge right now. Bah. Bah humbug. I'm tired and grumpy. I'll bet you $100 that tomorrow I'll feel so much better though. I think part of my downness is because I've been so swamped. Take for example, yesterday.
Wake up, go to church. After church, Suite Praise practice (S.P. is the name of my instrumental group). After that's done, couldn't go to Virginia's for lunch because I had to run to work. Got to work, surprise Roberta's working with me, yay! She let me go an hour early so I could have supper before choir practice at 6:30. Went out to my car and my starter is dead, had to wait for Rob to come down to the mall, he managed to start it. Got home, just took out some pickles when Tina called, "I'm coming to pick you up!" Tina had told people the wrong time, so we had to go to the church at 6 just in case people showed up at the time tina told them lol. Choir practice was good, I finally got my part after mucho practicing. Met ..oh shoot I can remember her husband's name but not hers..Darlene? Anyways, met her for the first time, she usually sits on the other side of the church. Actually really nice! After choir, had to stick around for the skit practice. Cody and I went through ours for the first time..I'm such a ham lol. Practice finally over, get to go home. An hour till bedtime, have to get up early for transit. Sigh.
But I get tomorrow off!!!!!!!! * hallelujahs and trumpets sounding* I plan to .............curl up with a book LMAO!!! Okay, and catch up on dishes. There.

Okay so I just found an ancient tape with our lip sync dance for DuJour, and oh my gosh if you have a copy of one of our lip syncs buried somewhere, dig it out and watch it ! We so totally rock!!! To think that we choreographed and performed that whole Dujour song is like ..amazing!

That is my trip down memory lane today - Enjoy :)

p.s. I had a nightmare a couple nights ago, that I shot a cougar with a shotgun..then it turned into a puppy, so I was cradling it in my arms trying to make it better, but it died in my arms. I woke up bawling like a baby!! I still can't think about it without tearing up..The noises it made, I told Rob as I was blubbering, were just heartwrenching. I hope no one experiences such a horrible, realistic nightmare.

Turning 22

Yay, everybody dance! December 2nd (Saturday, tomorrow) is Rob's birthday! Looks like there's going to be an army of guys invading my place to pre-drink before we hit the bar, about 7 or 8 guys..luckily I don't think I'll be the only girl though, since it's Lorena's birthday on the second as well, I'm probably going to meet her, Lorena, and Jodi at Houston's. I'm so psyched- I got a whole new accesory set just for tomorrow-earrings, necklace, and bangles, G-O-R-G-US! Last time I went I used like half a thing of hairspray and actually had some volume, so that's the plan again this time. Okay, it was more like huge hair. Very exciting. But enough about that! Diet update: 2 weeks of a diet, averaging anywhere from 13oo calories to 1700. Which is okay, but not great. After a weepy afternoon of feeling sorry for myself (after giving in and having a 2000 calorie day the day before) and telling Rob how I feel so large and unpretty, he logically replied, "If it bugs you so much, why don't you just try harder on your diet?" And that stopped me. I almost replied, Well, I am trying! But I thought about it, and no, I wasn't. I was just going through the motions, saying the words, eatting a little less, but not enough to make a difference. SO! I am VERY, EXTREMELY pleased to say! That in the past FOUR days! I have not eaten more than a thousand calories in a day. Anywhere from 700-900 some! That's enough of a change to drop a few. If I can keep this up! At least it'll be a start. And don't worry, I'm eating healthy-veggies every day.

Aaaanyways, enough boredom. I'm gonna go job surf some more. I wanna get my nose pierced. Have a good night y'all!
