Today sucked. There were layoffs where I work and it’s a stinker.

Today, I am thankful that I have a job.


30n30 day 27 make your own bloody marys December 14, 2008

Today, I’m going to brunch with some of my friends to the East Coast Grill.  They have a make-your-own bloody mary bar. I am so excited.  Nothing like a good bloody mary to start your day off.  You add your own spice, celery, kick.  Pure deliciousness. Should be some good times.

Niko was supposed to go, but he has to do some work today.  A last minute departure by someone in his department has left a void and now Niko and his team trying to close the gap.  They’ll get it worked out.  I hope that this doesn’t carry on to our vacation, but if it does…I’ll have to live.

Later today, the plan is to clean the apartment and do lots of laundry.  Over the last couple of weeks, the apartment has become quite messy.  Mostly due to me.  I haven’t really felt inspired to clean.  Most likely a combination of being sad about Erica, stressed about work stuff…adds up to me not feeling very motivated to do work around the house.  Video games and television seem far more appealing at the moment.  This is the last week of work before the winter break and I haven’t needed it more than I do this year.  (Hopefully, Niko won’t have to work over the holiday break…ugh.)

Today, I am thankful that my company gives us the week off during the Christmas holiday.


30n30 day 26 little big planet December 13, 2008

I have heard nothing but good things about Little Big Planet. So, today, after much discussion – Niko and I picked up a PS3 and Little Big Planet.  I’m very excited to play it – but we have to set it up and get all the updates for it.  Tomorrow, Niko and I are going to go meet some friends for breakfast where they have a make-your-own Bloody Marys.  How awesome is that?

Today, I am thankful for video games and the escapism that they offer.

30n30 day 24 rage December 10, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — burbunny @ 8:21 pm

Right now, I am filled with rage…I don’t know why.  I just am.  It’s a calm one and I’m not really taking out on other people – but I just feel a rage building up inside me.  So I’ll just skip to the thankful part.

Today, I am thankful for being insured (dental, medical, eyes).


30n30 day 23 missing… December 9, 2008

Filed under: Uncategorized — burbunny @ 10:39 pm

I wrapped all of my Christmas gifts except for the one for my brother.  Unfortunately, it disappeared in our one bedroom apartment.  Vanished…poof!  It SUCKS!  Niko and I think that one of us must have accidentally thrown it away.  Now I’m going to have to get him a gift certificate or something.  Ugh.

Today I am thankful for the life of Erica Murray.  In her short time here, she taught us so much about living.

My stomach is not feeling well.  I’m on medication for my diabetes and my body is adjusting.  I think when I eat too much sugar – the drugs make my stomach all crappy…literally.  Too much information, right?
