Cold November Snow

It is snowing like crazy outside! Very cold, wintry day to snuggle up with my Boo Boo and watch movies on the tv.

Yesterday was a fun day because John and I and our friend, Jackie, went to The Denver Zoo. We had a lot of fun and we didn't have to deal with a lot of people, because it was cold outside. My favorite highlight was the baby lion cubs---they were so cute! I wanted to see the baby gorilla, but she was inside with her mama. They can't have the male gorillas out with the mama gorilla and the baby at the same time, so they alternate them. Otherwise the male gorillas will kill the baby---sad! However, one of the male gorillas was very entertaining to watch. He was sitting on a spindle-looking seat next to the glass, and he kept making funny faces. He even stuck his tongue out at Jackie! Hehehehe, cute!

Afterwards, we went to dinner at Claim Jumper restaurant---a place of humiliation for me on April 17, 2004 (My Bachelorette Party). Nevertheless, a great restaurant to go to that has good fun and a Colorado-like atmosphere. Later on, we all played Super Smash Bros on Nintendo Gamecube---Jackie's favorite character--Yoshi, John's favorite character--between Link and Donkey Kong, and I prefer Kirby and Pikachu.

On Friday, we went out with my friend from work, Jessica, and her boyfriend, Jason. We went to the Molly Brown house---interesting place with a strong presence throughout. Later on, we ate at New York on 17th, but it is no longer named that. They decided six weeks ago to change it to an Italian restaurant---no longer our favorite place to go for a little bit of back home anymore. Afterwards, we went to see a movie called "National Treasure" with Nicholas Cage. It was a surprisingly, good movie, and we got to see it for free. Jessica's brother works at a movie theatre, and he gives her free passes all the time. Nice perk!

Anyway, that is my weekend! Today is all about the cuddling to stay warm!:)

Thanksgiving 2004

Yesterday was Thanksgiving, and we had a great time! My brother, Michael was there which was a nice surprise. I hadn't seen him since my wedding, so I was glad to see the whole family together again. Chris, Shannon, and James came over for dessert. They had Thanksgiving dinner with Shannon's family. They do that every year and they come to my parent's house for Christmas dinner. It works out. I wonder what John and I will do when we have kids. How we will juggle the holidays between our families. Anyway, Happy Thanksgiving---One more month until Christmas. Yeah!

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

It's snowing outside today! Boo Boo and I are going to spend this lovely day together---building a snowman, making snow angels....hehehe, just kidding! However, we are going to put up our Christmas Tree, put our reindeer on our lawn, bake brownies(mmmmmm...), run some much needed tasks, and snuggle together. Only 5 more days before Thanksgiving and then Christmas will only be a month away. Hurrah! :)

Yogi & Boo Boo Celebrating! Posted by Hello

Boo Boo's Birthday

On November 10, 2004---Boo Boo celebrated his 28th birthday! I bought him a Cosmo stuffed doll, Cosmo boxer shorts, and a Cosmo and Wanda pillow for his chair at work. Cosmo and Wanda are from a show called the "Fairly Odd Parents". We like the show, and John relates well to Cosmo. Anyway, we went to dinner at Old Chicago, and John later talked to his family on the phone. They called to wish him a Happy Birthday. On Friday, the 12th, we went to White Fence Farm with my parents and brother, Andy. Brewster's birthday was also on the 10th, he turned one. We had fun celebrating than John and I went home for some quiet time together. On the 13th, we went to Castle Rock to participate in the filming of the next Adventure Club movie called the "Fashion of the Christ". A light-hearted version of "Passion of the Christ". We had a lot of fun, and John and I look forward to the next Adventure Club on December 5th where we get to design our own Barbie attire and make an ornament. Yeah, Christmas is coming!!!!! My favorite holiday!:)

My Trip to the ER

Yesterday, November 6th, I was in a lot of pain. My body was going into shock from all the cramps, vomiting, and the whatnots that I kept having. After I went to the bathroom again for the umpteenth time I broke out in a cold sweat. I got in the shower to see if that would help me feel better, but it wasn't working. I called for John and I asked him to get me some water. After that, I asked him to call for an ambulance because I felt really bad. The paramedics were at our house in 5 minutes, and they took me to Littleton Hospital. The fireman didn't put the IV in my arm right, so the nurse at the hospital fixed it and gave me a painkiller and anti-nausea meds through the IV. What a difference! The pain gradually diminished, and I started to feel a lot better. Everyone said I was very pale, and my color was eventually improving. The nurse also gave me some oxygen, because the alarm on the machine kept going off. It scared John and my mom when it did it the first time. I still feel really weak today, and the prescriptions they gave me also make you drowsy. I already called in sick to work for tomorrow, so I can have an extra day to recuperate. I'm so glad that day is over, because I was not enjoying feeling that bad. What a week it has been! And to quote the Grateful Dead, "What a long strange trip it's been?"

Another Day....

Brewster was being watched by John & I on Saturday, and Cimbi scratched him in self-defense. It is so hard because we watched Brewster to be helpful to Andy, and we end up paying half of the expenses to have Brewster's injured eye fixed. It is so frustrating. John and I will never watched someone's animal or even child at our house again. It is really sad and I hope Brewster is okay, but I'm sorry it has become such a turbulent ride. Never again!!!!

Sweet Melody January 24, 1998-November 1, 2001 Posted by Hello

We Need Hope in this Sea of Sorrow

I just can't believe it! Bush won!!! Why does half of America want a President who is a complete moron? I am so angry and upset about this. I don't know what to say except that I hope Bush learned something from this election, and he most likely didn't. Why, because he is a fucking idiot? I just don't get it! I hang my head in sadness...

I also want to remember my sweet baby, Melody. The anniversary of her death was on November 1st. I got so caught up in the upcoming election that I completely forgot. However, I want to take this time to give homage to Melody who has been gone for 3 years. Melody, I love you and I miss you. Goodbye for now, my sweet Melody.
