I still have this thing?

I suppose this is just a testament to how much I have grown!  Since my last entry, so many things have happened / changed that I probably cannot even remember them.

  • my mom and I are beyond awesome in our relationship.  I cannot believe we were ever at such a bad point. I blame adolescence.
  • Cory and I are still happily married
  • We just bought a house and it is fabulous
  • I am closer to graduating from college
  • I got a promotion to a work-intensive and ungratifying job.
  • I have two little boys/kitties - Elvis and Sirius

pretty much entirely, I am a different girl.

[ mood | omfg MARRIED ]

As of Friday, July 7, 2006 I am MRS. PETTY
It was just the two of us, it was perfect! Cory got us a cake and boy did we give it a run for its money! I could barely bring myself to save a piece for the anniversary!
Now I am just enjoying being a wife to the most gorgeously awesome and amazing man on the face of the planet and I could not be more stoked about spending the rest of my life with him!
WHAT. IN. THE. WORLD.

We can talk all night, we can talk all day.
We can play charades when there is nothing to say.
You turn me on to the idea of growing old.
I can make you angry you can make me smile.
We can make origami with the kids for awhile.
You turn me on to the idea of growing old.

Now it won’t be long. No it won’t be long.
You turn me on to the idea of growing old.

We can lay around and count the number of times
I’ve acted foolish and you’ve rolled your eyes.
You turn me on to the idea of growing old.
You in your kerchief, and me in my cap.
We can settle down for an afternoon nap.
You turn me on to the idea of growing old.

Now it won’t be long.
No it won’t be long.
You turn me on to the idea of growing old.




i am getting a new car today

Pay me in Fireworks! [07 Jun 2006|09:21am]
Mayra, Cory and I started working out on monday. Let me tell you. Monday night I was fine, but after yesterdays bout of KardioKickboxing my arms are barely functioning. That is not an exaggeration AT ALL. Tonight we do Body Pump and Crunchtime and I can barely feed myself, open the door for myself, or even drive. I had to use TWO HANDS to get the cap off of my hiliter this morning.
The good thing is I expected this, so this morning I got up early and packed Cory an extra-healthy lunch, ironed his shirt, did laundry, dishes, and cleaned out the cat's litter box. Then I made my own lunch, made the bed, folded up our sleeping stuff and played with our kitty Elvis. I figured if I kept myself moving everything would be fine. SO, that's why my spirits are up but my body just can't keep up.
And Mayra likes to be hot. So we went into the sauna yesterday and while she was complaining about how the sauna at 24 hour fitness is hotter and this one sucks, my eyelids felt like they are turning into paper.
It is fun though and we need to get into better shape.
Tomorrow is my mom's birthday and I have taken the day off to spend with her, and tomorrow is KardioKickboxing. Praise god.

old spice is nice, but sweat is better [02 Jun 2006|02:06pm]

I got a kitty and I think it is safe to say he is my all time favorite pet. Hands down, the little guy just stole my little heart and ran away with it! He has one blue eye and one green eye and he makes me smile so much my face hurts. So now I am officially the luckiest girl I know. I have the most amazing husband anyone could ever dream of and the cutest, most wonderful little baby kitty on the planet.
Aside from our newest little bundle of joy we have been decorating up a storm! Lots and lots of pretty additions to make our little house beautiful. The newest is a fireplace screen/candleholder, and sheer, off-white polka dotted curtains that I bought yesterday and this weekend we are doing more painting and buying a TV stand. WHAT. IN. THE. WORLD.
We are joining the gym this evening and I see MANY strenuous workouts in my future. I will be getting my new car within the next couple of weeks and then I can take the baby kitty out for drives in it and I can just drive around and be totally giddy because I am gay for my cat. It’s sick, Seriously.
Also, I am buying my mom a pink tool kit for her birthday. The actual QUALITY of the tools is unknown to me, but I DO know that my mom is complaining 24/7 about my dad stealing her tools. So I figure if her tools are pink, my dad might be less likely to run off with them. I said MIGHT.
So that is my life right now. Some of it anyway.


It’s good to see Nia was found.

Yesterday I was having one of those days at work where I was just working mindlessly. Endorsing checks, proformas, proformas, proformas, bank statements and lots of other Bankruptcy goodness. I had just gone to the coffee bar to get myself some hot tea and I sat down and got back to work. In the midst of this mind-numbing work I reached over to take a bug gulp of tea, not thinking about the fact I had JUST gotten it. So I take a drink and it is BURNING, like fire, like hell, like really really hot water. I want to spit it out furiously, but I can’t because I am at my desk and it is covered with petitions and million dollar checks so I just let it dribble out onto my skirt, and of course it goes through my skirt and burns my leg. Why wouldn’t it right? I mean, why do it half assed? I might as well have poured it all over my boobies while I was at it. Anyway, I think all of the taste buds on the end of my tongue exploded, the roof of my mouth is mushy and sore, and my bottom lip feels like it has been locally anesthetized. Yesterday when I got home I ate a 50 pack of flavor-ices within 2 hours, no dinner. Fortunately I was still able to drink beer because it is cold. Now, I can’t eat anything hot, I can’t eat anything solid, I can’t eat anything too cold and I can’t eat anything spicy. So far all I have been able to eat is water. This is perfect timing too because we are going out of town this weekend.

I just thought all you folks out there who aren’t particularly crazy about me would find this funny in a satisfying way. I know I would.

this is me flying a kite:

About Grey’s Anatomy:
Denny DIED. I told myself I would quit watching the show if he died, but of course I won't. Izzie’s breakdown scene made me bawl like a baby. To me, nothing feels lamer than crying into Cory’s sleeve over a TV SHOW, but it happens. AND McDog! They put Doc to sleep! OMFG! Meredith is so stupid but as soon as they said prom I knew she was going to get back with McDreamy. At the end of the first hour I was crying like a baby with Burke laying on the ground, not because he was hurt, but because who was going to operate on DENNY? I will admit though that the thought of Burke being unable to operate ever again is a little saddening. I am glad that Christina pulled her head out of her ass in time to comfort him and mostly I am glad that they didn’t end the season with the “Is Denny going to die?” thing because that would’ve tortured me ALL SUMMER. As it stands though, I really don’t care who Meredith goes home with and so I am content to make it through an entire summer sans any new Grey’s.

About real life:
I make AMAZING chocolate chip cookies.
I was so excited about Tilly and the Wall that I bought tickets in advance even though I am sure they will not sell out. Zoe is really into them also so she is going with us, she is turning out to be pretty awesome. I went to my mom’s house the other day and Jenny Lewis was on their desktop, I am so proud of that girl 24/7!
AND flying kites and playing catch are my new favorite things to do.

OOOOOOOH, you and me, on a fantasy. [15 May 2006|10:52am]
my hair is curly pretty much all the time now, and the compliments are endless. I didn't realize that putting ZERO effort into my hair would bring about so much satisfaction with my appearance from the general public, and my dearest.

i got an A in Biology, and so Microbiology and Anatomy and Physiology I and II come next.
Human Lifespan and Development over the summer. No time for down time.

Cory and I changed a poopie diaper together this weekend and it reaffirmed what I already knew: NOT FOR ME. Not right now anyway. I like being selfish WAY too much for all that stuff. For now I get my cute little baby fix from babysitting the inlaw's little ones (I guess they would be my nieces and nephew)
I was ready for bed time before they were! and I know it is really corny, but the middle one is a total crybaby (just like me) and so I used this trick I saw on Super Nanny and it WORKED! that's just so funny to me.
but Seriously: how am I supposed to be drunk all the time if I have to chase after little ones?
EXACTLY

i cannot wait for Grey's Anatomy tonight! Oh my GOODNESS! if Denny dies I am going to be the most upset, big-haired redhead anyone has EVER seen!

I'm a rough gem [28 Apr 2006|10:12am]
I have also come to the important conclusion that all people are hypocrites. This is something I may have realized before on a more subconscious level, but I hadn't been completely aware of. It is a fact, no matter who you are, you are a hypocrite. That is not necessarily a bad thing, since I too must be a hypocrite. Nonetheless, it is something to look out for.

I have gotten a lot of compliments on my hair lately and my outfits. I also determined I am a bitch because I discovered how great it is to go into the fitting room in the Misses department of a store like Kohl's and complain about how the Size zero is just too big. "Jeez babe, why don't they make these things any smaller. This is SO unfair.


and finally, as a HUGE Unicorns fan, i am pretty darned excited about islands.

i LOVE my life [28 Apr 2006|08:20am]
Occasionally I'll start feeling down about the way things are going. It ususally illogical and hormonally driven, but nonetheless...
Yesterday I went on myspace and looked up several of the people I knew in high school and saw the music they listen to, the things they like, the way they are living. A tad stalkerish, I know. But it made me feel SO GREAT about my life.
As devastating as it was, ultimately I am glad to be childless. I am proud to have a partner who treats me like a princess, and works his butt off to make sure I have the things I want. Who is creative and hilarious and light-hearted. I am happy to be in college, and to have finally chosen a direction, and to have TWO families who love and support me. And (as a bonus) to have great taste in music.
Just in general I am pleased as punch to be where I am.

"You know who you remind me of?"
"Who?"
"You may not know who this is but Molly Ringwald."
"[fake laughter] yeah, I know who she is, I've heard that alot."

[minutes later]

"Hey, I heard Letitia tell you you look like Molly Ringwald"
"Yeah."
"Well, I think it is your voice more than anything, you sound just like her. I know what you are thinking though, and I completely understand. I get Neve Campbell, because of the eyebrows."
"Great, we can start our own, 'Not even moderately attractive failed actress look-alike club'."



Truthfully, I haven't heard it since highschool and I consider that a positive thing. Who the hell wants to look like Molly Ringwald?

I took friday off, in secret, and my dad and I went to get my sweetie a kayak. We had a great time together, much needed time. Our visit ended with killer sandwiches and me rushing home and decorating the house with balloons and baking a cake. I decorated the cake with army men and dinosaurs and it came out VERY well.

So, I bought Cory a kayak for his birthday. A kayak and a puppy. I wasn't going to get it, but then something hit me on thursday and I just knew he had to have it. It is huge and awesome and huge and I am so glad I did it. There is nothing more fulfilling than making him happy.

Saturday we scouted around for cool places to take the kayak, then we went to target and bought an x-men kite and a nerf vortex football and headed out to find a park. We ended up at a church over by Armand Bayou and we RULED that kite. We had SO much fun, and I got SO sunburned.

Sunday we got up REALLY REALLY early, got donuts and went to the lake at his dad's house and KAYAKED! It was SOMETHING ELSE. I am SO sore today it hurts to do anything but lay down, and even that hurts, just not as much. Then we hung out with the kids, ate egg-shaped cupcakes and hid easter eggs in the blistering heat. It was a LONG and awesome day.

On the way home I was achey, sunburned and tired; but Cory serenaded me with a "She's like the Wind" sing along and the laughing drowned out all the hurty-ness.

He is the most amazing man in the galaxy.

If there was a better way to go then it would find me [11 Apr 2006|12:41pm]
[ mood | blah ]

This weekend produced nothing really. Unless you count shopping and not sleeping, then it produced a fair amount.
Saturday I went to Ann Taylor Loft and Banana and Victoria Secret and I really shouldn't have. I knew I shouldn't have, but I did it anyway because that is what I do - I do things that I know I shouldn't. I really want to stop shopping, I feel disgusting.
I guess that is my new project, stopping the shopping.

Cory had school 7am - 630pm then work 9pm to 6am and that sucked a LOT, let me tell you. But I stocked up on disney movies and waited up all night for him, because that is something else I do, not sleep without my mister.

He got me the new Fiona Apple CD and that is pretty much ruling right now.

all the g o o o o o o o d and the bad [06 Apr 2006|09:31am]
[ mood | cheerful ]

I have this thing in my relationship where I cannot lie. I think in the end it would only undermine the integrity of our beautiful relationship, and that is just not a risk I am willing to take; USUALLY. But then I went and took that risk, but for a good reason: the only thing worse than lying is bringing up a situation that isn’t even worth the headache and worry it will cause.
SO, I didn’t bring it up. Mainly because I thought it would be the right thing to do to preserve my school life and home life and I wouldn’t have done it if I thought it was TOTALLY the wrong thing because I will admit that I might have thought it was a little wrong. But only because it still counts as a lie, and I do not lie to my almost husband. Except for this once.
The thing is, I did tell him about the situation, but I made up where it happened because I didn’t want him to worry.
In the end it is okay, because it is not my fault if someone thinks I am attractive and wants JUST ONE KISS because I am so beautiful. And I have to admit that was EGO BOOST of the century. It is nice to know that other people still find you attractive even though you have been off the market for a while.
I still didn’t OFFER all the details, but if he were to ask I would tell him.
All I know is that if he could’ve been a fly on the wall, he would’ve been the proudest fly that has ever landed on a wall before in history.
That’s all I’m saying.

I don’t believe in that “What you don’t know can’t hurt you” thing, because once I DO know I am going to be very hurt and so would anyone else involved.

Anyway, on to the next topic in the longest post ever…

Cory turns 28 on the 14th, and we are going out for seafood and Bananas Foster, but his present is happening tonight. I have not really even been able to talk to him about my day at all this week because my days are dominated with this awesome surprise and I am SO afraid I am going to spoil it so like I said, I just don’t talk. But I am giving it to him tonight and he will not read this so I am just going to say it.
WE ARE GETTING A LITTLE GIRLFRIEND FOR RAMBO!!
