Tuesday, February 28, 2006Cabin Fever Countdown (2 Days till we leave)
Ah yes...2 days till we leave for Cabin Fever! So much to do and so little time. I think the hardest part is packing...struggling to think if you remembered everything...listening to Dad joke about "You packed like you're not coming back"
I want to move to Florida (Lucas...pick yourself up off the ground honey...) The homes there are really cheap, yet nice....like the homes that go for 250-300 grand here go for under 100 down there...in fact most people's rent here is more then the mortgage payments that you have there...shooooot...tan all day...warm nights...only 10 hurricanes a year (Yes I thought about that) im there!
Well, guess I better roll out even though it is the end of the month and there is little to nothing to do at work...the sad thing is our managers even know it and just tell us to search around and try to find something to do and if we can't just look busy...LOL...I think I have a ghetto job...but it's better then no job I suppose!
Have a good one everybody!
Monday, February 27, 2006Cabin Fever Countdown (3 Days till we leave)
We leave for Cabin Fever this Thursday morning...YAY!
It's kinda neat because the guy (Earl Banton) that organizes it was once in a bluegrass gospel group that Lucas Dad was in!
I think that plans have changed a slight bit though. Mom and I where going to ride with Grampa and his significant other so that Mom would have have to ride home by herself, since I thought that I was riding home with Lucas, but since he isn't going we can drive ourselves...this I am glad of (The fact that we can drive ourselves not that Lucas isn't going) because they are older and I don't enjoy their driving conversation (Prostates are one of my grampas favorite subjects)
It is going to be bluegrass everywhere and every-which-a-way that you go. It is a fun time and Grampa usually get's to be the center of attention where ever he goes..plus the fact that Shelby (Oh...that's his significant other's name) can yodel so loud that small children shiver and the hotel vibrates! (Perhaps I stretched that a tad...but she can sing loud) But don't get me wrong...if you like yodeling she is something not to be missed...she is a great singer...perhaps if she learned a few more songs though...(Smacks self to stop while I am ahead)
Well, I better get to working...short week and better get done all I can while I can!
Have a good day!
(I love you Lucas)
Thursday, February 23, 2006Wedding Colors Pole

b. Navy Blue/Silver

e. Other (Please let me know what other is)
Have a great day!
(I love you Lucas and I expect a vote from you...)
Wednesday, February 22, 2006Where's the snow?
Didn't the local weather man promise us snow in my area this morning? Well, I certainly see rain and perhaps a little bit of snow, but you have to look really hard to see it...I expected that it wouldn't snow because the temperature is to warm.
Well, my finger is better this morning, but it still hurts under the nail...what a nasty spot to get a burn...I suppose that I am asking for trouble by bringing more soup for lunch today..at least I have learned to be more careful when I am carrying it. The warnings that they put on there about it being hot are very true...I can vouch for that!
Quick update on Pea - He is very sore and it seems that his spirit is broken, but I think that is expected...(Mom says that I still have to call him peanut, I offered pea-no-nuts, but she said no...)
Have a great day and wish me luck remembering not to use my burnt finger to type!
(I love you Lucas)
Tuesday, February 21, 2006Owie...
So I burned my finger...pretty bad at work when I was on break...I was removing my soup from the microwave and somehow it tipped and spilled all over my hand, but the brunt of it was taken out on my middle finger...
Okay, so the burn might not be that bad, but it does hurt something fierce...
Hope that ya'll are having a better day so far then me...
(I Love You Lucas)
Monday, February 20, 2006Coffee Headache Almost Gone :)
Okay, so after a nice lunch I am feeling better and the no-caffeine heacache seems to be wearing off.
Noone has heard from the vet's too see how Pea's surgery went, but Mom said that she would call my cell and leave a message as soon as she heard something. He has to stay overnight, so I am hoping that he get's some rest as he starts to recover.
Everyone is at peace at the moment because both of out watch dogs are in a meeting. Training of some sort, so even though we where not doing anything wrong, it still feels like we can breath when neither of them are watching us.
Well, guess I better run...hope that you all are having a great day.
(I love you Lucas)
No coffee this morning...
Cursed people who invented coffee...
Blessed people who invented tylenol so my withdrawl headache doesn't hurt as bad...
Gosh im sleepy..
They make nicorette for people who are addicted to nicotine, so why isn't there a cofforette for people who are addicted to coffee?
On a side note our newest dog Peanut has surgery today...he's not going to be a happy camper this afternoon...yea...he's going in for the big one...guess we'll have to change his name to Pea...cause there taking off the rest...Dad almost cried for the dog last night...guess it's a guy thing...
Have a good day.
(I love you Lucas)
Wednesday, February 15, 2006Update
Quick update - Benadryl knocked me out last night but I am feeling better this morning. Got an appointment at 6 this afternoon, then acteens and choir practice...busy day!
(I love you Lucas!)
Tuesday, February 14, 2006Valentines Day!!!
Wow...Febuary 14th already! What a lovely Valentines Day this has been already.
Yesterday after Lucas and I went to the gym we went back to his house and he suprised me with a dozen gorgeous red roses (My absolute FAVORITE!) and a awesome cookbook with low fat and fairly easy to make recipes. I swear sometimes I feel like I don't deserve him...he is so good to me. He makes Valtentines Day even better!
Then this morning Tia gave us all a pink tulip and chocolate (No chocolate for me) It is so pretty and smells great! They would make a nice wedding bouquet...
We got to dress down today at work if we wore pink/white or red/white and I chose pink...there is also a contest for the most spirited valentine. This awesome little black guy that works here dressed like cupid (Very open with his life style also...) complete with the skirt (even if cupid didn't wear a skirt..but any excuse to wear one ya know...), rosy red cheeks and wings...he is too cute! I am sure that he would have brought arrows, but he would have gotten fired due to the policies around here...
Well, I better get going. I hope that you all have a wonderful Valentines Day!
(I love you Lucas!)
Monday, February 13, 2006No Comprendo Espanol?
Como Esta? Mi? Muy bien, y tu?
I am pretty sure that that is spanish for How are you, Me? Very good, and you?
That's about all I remember from spanish class...I wasn't a model student in spanish like Titus was in Latin...I barely scrapped by with a C...my spanish name was Ana though...I liked that name...I play a game where my name is Tika and I like that better....yet most people know me by Torie...and I like that just fine.
So tomorrow is Valentines Day! The day that Hallmark, Russel Stovers, and flourists make a mint selling their goods to lovers of all sorts...I am going to get gushy for a moment...Feb 15th was Lucas and our 1st kiss...I was intending it to be on Valentines Day, but out of sheer shyness from both parties it didn't happen till a bit after 12 AM...it was still special though and I will never forget it!
That's all I got for now! Hope that you all have a great day!
(I love you Lucas - See ya at the gym!)
Thursday, February 09, 2006Life + Lucas = :)
Yes, I have once again changed the title of my blog once again. I heard that someone descibed my blog as a love letter and I thought that it was awesome, so there is it...Love letters to Superman.
I suppose that I just can't help talking about how much I love Lucas, because of the fact that I do love him to much...
My whole life is like a huge love letter book. Each day a new page begins and Lucas fills it with so much love, that my book is bursting at the seems - Yet at the same time he keeps me grounded when I off in space. Then even still he makes me feel like I am floating.
Love is such a wonderful thing and I am so blessed to have such a true and pure love with Lucas.
On a different note - I need help. During the winter my lips get really chapped. I need something that will help, that will stay on...even when I drink my coffee, and that isn't so sticky...Up to this point I have tried chap-stick (Not sticky, but I always seem to loose it or wash it though) clinique (Great moisture, but get's on my teeth and my coffee cup and neither of those are good looks to me), clinique repariwear intenise treatment ($$$ and I think chap stick works just as well - Don't worry Lucas I didn't pay for it but Mom about had a stroke when she found out how much she payed for it) and neosporin lip treatment (Tastes like lemon cake to me...but coffee takes it off in no time flat) I am open to suggestions!
Also, isnt it wierd how things work...somehow the moment that I put hand lotion and get it rubbed in good is the same moment that I have to use the bathroom (Mr. Rawlings and I had an arguemnt over whether it was bathroom or restroom...I said that because I love in the south we call it a bathroom...he said that he's lived in the south longer then me and it's called a restroom...so I said "WELL THAT'S WHAT I CALL IT!....grrrrrrr....) and after I "go" I have to wash my hands and it all get's washed off...this happenes everytime...I guess I just have poor timing, but it's like rubbing my hands causes to me have to pee...very odd (Just like me)
Well, I guess i'll sign off now...I hope that you all have a wonderful day!
(I love you Lucas - My reason for being)
Wednesday, February 08, 2006E-Mails of the Day
And now I bring you...e-mails of the day:
A girl asked a guy if he thought she was pretty, He said...no.
She asked him if he would want to be with her forever... and he said no.
She then asked him if she were to leave would he cry, and once again he replied with a no.
She had heard enough as she walked away, tears streaming down her face the boy grabbed her arm and said....
You’re not pretty you're beautiful. I don't want to be with you forever I NEED to be with you forever. And I wouldn't cry if you walked away...I'd die...
Isn't that sweet? Here's another good one:
Ten Guidelines From God (Pay close attention)
Effective Immediately, please be aware that there are changes YOU need to make in YOUR life. These changes need to be completed in order that I may fulfill my promises to you to grant you peace, joy and happiness in this life. I apologize for any inconvenience, but after all that I am doing, this seems verylittle to ask of you. Please, follow these 10 guidelines…
1. QUIT WORRYING: Life has dealt you a blow and all you do is sit and worry. Have you forgotten that I am here to take all your burdens and carry them for you? Or do you just enjoy fretting over every little thing that comes your way?
2. PUT IT ON THE LIST:Something needs done or taken care of Put it on the list. No, not YOUR list. Put it on MY to-do-list. Let ME be the one to take care of the problem. I can't help you until you turn it over to me. And although My to-do-list is long, I am after all... God. I can take ca! re of anything you put into My hands. In fact, if the truth were ever really known, I take care of a lot of things for you that you never even realize.
3. TRUST ME:Once you've given your burdens to me, quit trying to take them back. Trust in Me. Have the faith that I will take care of all your needs, your problems and your trials. Problems with the kids? Put them on My list. Problem with finances? Put it on my list. Problems with your emotional roller coaster? For My sake, put it on my list. I want to help you. All you have to do is ask.
4. LEAVE IT ALONE:Don't wake up one morning and say, "Well, I'm feeling much stronger now, I think I can handle it from here." Why do you think you are feeling stronger now? It's simple. You gave me your burdens and I'm taking care of them. I also renew your strength and cover you in my peace. Don't you know that if I give you these problems back, you will be right back where you started? Leave them with me and forget about them. Just let me do my job.
5. TALK TO ME:I want you to forget a lot of things. Forget what was making you crazy. Forget the worry and the fretting because you know I'm in control. But there's one thing I pray you never forget. Please, don't forget to talk to me - OFTEN! I love YOU! I want to hear your voice. I want you to include me in on the things going on in your life. I want to hear you talk about your friends and family. Prayer is simply you having a conversation with me. I want to be your dearest friend.
6. HAVE FAITH:I see a lot of things from up here that you can't see from where you are. Have faith in me that I know what I'm doing. Trust me; you wouldn't want the view from my eyes. I will continue to care for you, watch over you, and meet your needs. You only have to trust me. Although I have a much bigger task than you,it seems as if you have so much trouble just doing your simple part. How hard can trust be?
7. SHARE:You were taught to share when you were only two years old. When did you forget? That rule still applies. Share with those who are less fortunate than you. Share your joy with those who need encouragement. Share your laughter with those who haven't heard any in such a long time. Share your tears with those who have forgotten how to cry. Share your faith with those who have none.
8. BE PATIENT:I managed to fix it so in just one lifetime you could have so many diverse experiences. You grow from a child to an adult, have children, change jobs many times, learn many trades, travel to so many places, meet thousands of people, and experience so much. How can you be so impatient then when it takes me a little longer than you expect to handle something on my to-do-list? Trust in My timing, for My timing is perfect. Just because I created the entire universe in only six days, everyone thinks I should always rush, rush, and rush.
9. BE KIND:Be kind to others, for I love them just as much as I love you. They may not dress like you, or talk like you, or live the same way you do, but I still love you all. Please try to get along, for my sake. I created each of you different in some way. It would be too boring if you were all identical. Please, know I love each of your differences.
10. LOVE YOURSELF:As much as I love you, how can you not love yourself? You were created by me for one reason only -- to be loved, and to love in return. I am a God of Love. Love Me. Love your neighbors. But also love yourself.It makes my heart ache when I see you so angry with yourself when things go wrong. You are very precious to me.
Don't ever forget......
Well, that's it for now. Tonight is the Valentines Banquet at church (See...I remembered Lucas...YAY) but I am not sure if I can make it because the rest of my family is going to my aunts house to celebrate her birthday which is tomorrow. I feel sad for her because she isn't well and she has to go to the Dr. tomorrow on her Birthday to get the news about options, or lack there of for her treatment. Prayer would be appreaciated!
Really I was just thinking about the fact that I am so happy on Valentines Day now because I acutally have a Valentine! Thank you Lucas for being my Valentine, my world, my life, my future, my everything!
Have a great one everybody!
(I love you Lucas)
Tuesday, February 07, 2006Random Thot's
way hoo! What a lovely day...a nice brisk breeze in the air and the sun is shining :)
As you can tell I am in a much better mood today then I was yesterday. It's a puzzle to me why people's moods vary with the days.
Thot of the Day:
I was thinking of "Burn Out" today. To me burn out is the act of getting sick and tired of something that you are doing on a consistent basis. Often burn out leads to slack in whatever you are burn out of. God never gets burnt out. He deals with us, heals us, heard and answers our prayers all while watching us sin and fall short of his glory. How wonderful a God is he that he never does become burn out.
Monday, February 06, 2006Grumpy
Im so grumpy that I don't feel like writing anything...dang it...wrote something
Geeze im grumpy...grrrrrrr
(I love you Lucas...no amount of grumpiness can stop that!)
Friday, February 03, 2006Early Dismissal!
Good Morning all...I have some awsome news...I am getting off at 12 today! Sarah has been taking so much time off that she descided to treat us to some time off also.
So, I have planned to leave and go get my shots, then I am going to the store to get some ingredients to make Lucas and Daddy a nice supper tonight! I found an awesome looking casserole dish a few weeks ago that I have been wanting to try to make and I have descided that I am going to attempt (Keyword attempt) to make it today...and who knows what else...I haven't really descided yet...im sure that Mom will help me after she gets home...come to think of it I should probably wait till she gets home then go out so she can help me make sure that I get everything that I need....hmmm....
Plus, I had already scheduled to take off on the 17th at 12 so that I could spend the afternoon with Lucas...aah nice...
Well, I gotta get going...just wanted to share the news...

Thursday, February 02, 2006You might be a Jedi redneck if...
Well good morning once again all you happy people in blogger land! I certainly hope that your week is going well!
TGIAF (A stands for almost) (G stands for Goodness as I won't take the lords name in vaine)
So nothing interesting has happened at all today! I have just been waiting for something to happen that I could blog about on my break but I got absolutely nothing...
You might be a Jedi redneck if...
Your Jedi robe is a camouflage color.
You have ever used your lightsaber to open a bottle of Jack Daniel's.
You think the best use of your lightsaber is picking your teeth.
There is a gun rack in the back of your landspeeder.
You can easily describe the taste of an Ewok... without using the word "chicken".
You can find no grammatical errors in the way Yoda talks.
A peaceful meditation session is one without gas.
You can levitate yourself using a force from within, but not THE force.
Your master ever said "My finger you will pull..hmmm?"
You have ever had an X-wing up on blocks in your yard.
The worst part of spending time on Dagobah is the dadgum skeeters.
Wookies are offended by your B.O.
You have ever used the force to get yourself another beer.
You have ever used the force in conjunction with fishing or bowling.
You think the symbol for the Rebel Alliance should be the Confederate flag.
More than half the droids you own don't function.
The number of blasters you own exceeds your I.Q.
You wonder why Luke and Leia gave up on getting married.
You don't like wearing a Jedi robe because it prevents access to the dip stored in your back pocket.
Sandpeople back down from your mama.
You've ever used Jedi mind control to talk your way out of a speeding ticket or DUI.
A Wookie has ever told you that you need to shave.
The Rancor monster refused to eat you.
Before Lucas...I wouldn't have understood any of that stuff...thank you Baby!
Well, that's all for now...
(I love you Lucas)
Wednesday, February 01, 20062-1-2006
Wow February already...you know what that means...Valentines Day is approaching rapidly...the day that I used to dread till I got Lucas...now it's happy :)
I got a tad bit of the sniffles this morning. No doubt from the 4.5 ml of allergy shots that where pumped into my arms yesterday...other then that im not to bad though...YAY
Hey...Lucas is getting out of school at 12 today and Friday (Mondays also come to think of it)...sure wish that I was getting of work at 12...maybe I can get off at 12 this Friday, or next Friday so that we can spend the afternoon together...that might be nice :) I am certainly gload that I thought of it...maybe we can even go see Diane and Helen since I haven't seem them in a while...not sure that I want to go eat with them though...only because of the fact that they enjoy Pizza Hut and I don't...I loved pizza and now that I can't eat it, I don't really like to smell it because I LOVE IT! (Yes, I did it to myself...I know I know...) Maybe we can go somewhere else...or maybe we won't go out to eat at all...guess we'll just see where the wind blows that day!
Well, I better scidaddle! Have a great day everyone!
(I love you Lucas)
