Happy Monday, my lovely readers!

Auuuuuuggghhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!! I mean, good morning (or afternoon.. or evening--whenever you may be reading this)! I must get the mini-rant out of the way, so if you want to skip to fun, happy part of the entry, feel free :P I swear, living with family or even just other people can be trying. See, yesterday we had another (apparently unproductive) open house to try to find a buyer. So, the house was spic and span and least it was when I left. I came home this morning, (what? a girl like to spend time with her guy sometimes and get away!) to: ALL empty pet dishes messes on the floor my living room in slight disarray my bathroom still torn up from a repair job yesterday afternoon (although, I was kind of expecting this) dirty towels/rags on top of the dryer from aforementioned repair job (instead of in the washer where the others were ...and the carriers/totes they were sitting on still strewn across my parking stall in the garage from use yesterday. For a neat freak with OCD and just for someone that cleaned most of the house herself yesterday, it's slightly upsetting and VERY annoying. I haven't even looked at the kitchen or upstairs at all yet. I'm kind of afraid to! **end mini-rant** And onto happy stuff... Have any of you tried the 'Draw Something' app? Being an artist as a hobby, I was actually trying to avoid it and resist attempts to lure me in by friends. But, alas I gave in when Nick sent me a invite last week....and now I'm addicted. Iphone screens are sooooo tiny for it! I was using my Kindle, but the latest app update made it buggy enough to have an error message every time I open it :-( So, I'm back to the tiny screen and the batter that sucks dry so quickly! I'm starting to greatly look forward to Sundays. Nick and I have settled back into our routine of that's the main day we unofficially made ours to hang out. Typically spent window shopping, getting food and curling up in front of the TV. Either I'm getting old, or going out is just getting boring, because that's a perfectly fine way to relax in my opinion. BIG change from just a year or two ago when I was hitting two, three, sometimes four karaokes a week. Now, I can't even get motivated to go to the one regular one I've gone to for two years- my bed and books, and furballs entice me to stay home. Maybe I'll become a crazy cat lady, or I'm already on the way. But, I have a pup, so I'm safe from that.. right?

HUGE Pet Peeve of mine... *mini rant*

*Psssttttt* Would you like to know a quick way to get on my nerves-- wait, make that a quick way to piss me off and turn me off to any desire to converse with you for awhile? Or perhaps would you like to know what to avoid doing? That would be acting patronizing towards me or to someone else while I'm present. Especially when you may do it under the guise of being all caring and nice and 'it's for you that I'm doing whatever it is I'm doing'... Auggghhh!! I wonder... why do people act this way? And do you think they actually realize they are? Or do they really think they are being sweet and kind and in no way annoying and pissing other people off?

A quick observation

I think it's sad (disappointing..immature..telling...?) how people completely change their personality towards you, or just stop communication altogether, when they don't get what they want. Or when you don't want to help them fulfill whatever it is that they desire... As I write this, I guess it's not them changing, but their true colors that must be showing through the fake awesome exterior that they were trying to emulate. Sucks, but hey.. helps you see who is a true friend and who apparently think they are above everyone else, right? :-) While I'm mini-ranting, I might as well include a few more things lol: 1.) Why do some people attack other's for behaviors that they themselves do?? I don't get it. Everything from not picking up after their animals to cheating on their spouses, littering to not paying thier bills. I've heard a wide gamlet of these things, and it just doesn't make sense to me. Maybe they need to be reminded of the glass house/throwing stones proverb?2.) Why did an individual that knows I dislike them IMMENSELY send me a friend request earlier this week? I'm pretty sure the feeling is mutual... 3.) and last, but not least.. I am soooooo exhausted that I'm actually slightly dizzy. That doesn't seem like a good thing.. I think that means I'm way over due for meeting my bed.

Drama attempts and petty neighbors,, Blech!

I hate in-my-face confrontations from virtual strangers. Really? If you have a problem with me, be adult. Otherwise, take your drama else where. The cops have better things to do then settle petty neighborhood disputes :-( Okay, now that you're now wondering what on Earth I am talking about, I shall elaborate. This actually slowly started when the new family moved in next door, last year I believe it was. Her children run rampant through the neighborhood, her dog is loose more than not, and her house is looking more and more run down with toys and everything else left out in plain sight. Ever since she moved in, we've been quietly removing the toys from our yard and putting them back in hers. And asking them to keep their dog off our grass, as well as the children themselves. Tonight it came to a head. It's a property dispute, my neighbor officially trying to claim more land than is hers legally. (Starting with her children's skateboard being in my rock bed, accumulating when I calmly picked it up and put it back in her yard- resulting in her child running inside getting her, and her getting in my face and shouting at me.. and ending with her throwing my rocks from the rock bed while we waited for the cop to show..) But, I think I've already decided how I'm going to handle it. The cop said to get a surveyor out to measure the property and mark it. I have just had that done when I listed my house on the market last month, so I'm not going to argue over three measly feet wide of a strip. If she wants to pay the $500 to find out she's wrong, that's awesome. And we'll just stop mowing that stretch and whatever. Let her deal with the future neighbors over it. I've got bigger things to do than to argue over that tiny bit. And, oh yeah. I've been trying to stave off an anxiety attack since this went down, but I'm not doing so well keeping it at bay at the moment. :-/ I really feel like I need to take my anxiety medicine, but I don't know if that's a good idea since I took Aleeve not that long ago. Anyone have any idea about this sort of thing? I'd love your opinions about the property issue as well..

It's been awhile...

"...Since I first saw you And it's been awhile Since I could stand On my own two feet again And it's been awhile Since I could call you And all the things I can't remember..." Oh wait.. that's not where I was going with that. Silly song just popping into my head like that! I was actually going to say that it's been awhile since I've written. But, I think it's time to start. I've been possibly inspired to do so, by the latest book I'm reading. Actually a few books I've read lately, just by coincidence, have inspired me. It's strange, my passion for reading has been jump started for some unknown reason.. but I'm not complaining. And, now in this technological age, I have a magic box that hold hundreds of them! Well, other people would call them Kindles, but I like magic box better ;-) It's magic to me, because I will NEVER understand how those things, (or computers of any type) can work constantly and steadily! It's beyond my grasp.
