So True, yet so sad, Yet so funny

I stole this from my friends facebook notes and had to share cause they made me laugh and cry at the same time... (I, Staci, tried to edit most of the bad words out, hopefully I didn't miss any :/)

1. More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can think
about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell my own
story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize
you're wrong.

3. Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're
going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to be
going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction
from which you came, you have to first do something like check your watch
or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to ensure that
no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by randomly switching
directions on the sidewalk.

4. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was

5. The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This
recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be
ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.

6. Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't
work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically fix
the problem. Every kid in in the country did that, but how did we all know
how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards or FAQ's.
We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.

7. There is a great need for sarcasm font.

8. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and
suddenly realize I had no idea what the crap was going on when I first saw

9. I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually
becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting 90
minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's laughing at
the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit harder (and a
millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one who really,
really gets it.

10. How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

11. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than
take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

12. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear
your computer history if you die.

13. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to
finish a text.

14. Was learning cursive really necessary?

15. Lol has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to

16. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and

17. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod
and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

18. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up
to prevent a prick from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!

19. What would happen if I hired two private investigators to follow each

20. While driving yesterday I saw a banana peel in the road and
instinctively swerved to avoid it...thanks Mario Kart!!

21. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the
person died.

22. I find it hard to believe there are actually people who get in the
shower first and THEN turn on the water.

23. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty,
and you can wear them forever.

25. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

26. Bad decisions make good stories

27. Whenever I'm Facebook stalking someone and I find out that their
profile is public I feel like a kid on Christmas morning who just got the
Red Ryder BB gun that I always wanted. 546 pictures? Don't mind if I do!

28. Is it just me or do high school girls get sluttier & sluttier every

29. Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go
around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly
nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from, this shouldn't be a

30. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work
when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything
productive for the rest of the day.

31. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't
want to have to restart my collection.

32. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are
going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

33. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me
if I want to save any changes to my ten page research paper that I swear I
did not make any changes to.

34. While watching the Olympics, I found myself cheering equally for China
and USA . No, I am not of Chinese descent, but I am fairly certain that
when Chinese athletes don't win, they are executed.

35. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello?
Damnit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes
to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run

36. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing
anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

37. I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle,
then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

38. Why is a school zone 20 mph? That seems like the optimal cruising
speed for pedophiles...

39. As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers,
but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists. (Me: Don't discriminate!)

40. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not
know what time it is.

41. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to
answer when they call.

42. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car
keys in a pocket, hitting the G-spot, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey -
but I'd bet my butt everyone can find and push the Snooze button from 3
feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time every time...

43. I wonder if cops ever get pissed off at the fact that everyone they
drive behind obeys the speed limit.

44. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

45. The other night I ordered takeout, and when I looked in the bag, saw
they had included four sets of plastic silverware. In other words, someone
at the restaurant packed my order, took a second to think about it, and
then estimate d that there must be at least four people eating to require
such a large amount of food. Too bad I was eating by myself. There's
nothing like being made to feel like a fat beast before dinner.


New Pic for Header!

Well, Thanks to Ky & Lynaya, we did receive the cd with all the family photos form the Sanders Family Reunion... I was excited. Everyone took a lot of cute photos :) This was the one I liked of Andrew and I. The others all put me in "bad lighting", though, of course, Andrew looks ridiculously good looking in all of them!

I took this one, riched up the color a little, and added the blur edging.

No news yet :(


Crafts by Boredom

Okay, So, as most know, I am still trying to get a job here. Still searching, even though I've had quite a few interviews. So, my mom was showing me these crafty-scrapbooky items. A welcome sign was the only one that really caught my eye. Even though it looks nothing like the original, I like it better. It's got my taste of earth tones and stars that I love. I also enjoy the "O" (made from a Winnie the Pooh honeypot!)

Frame: $20 on sale
Scrapbook paper book: $10 ( I only used 5 pages out of the 36 in there... that means there is plenty left for more projects!)
Time: 5 hours of Mom time (Her's took 6.5 hours though!)

The real reason it was so cheap is because my mom has a surplus of scrapbooking supplies, and a cricket, and at least a dozen cartridges... :) But I liked it: Here you GO!



It's been... a rough week. A couple of weeks actually. No job=no fun. I constantly stress about not being able to pull my own way to help with finances. Luckily, we are not paying our normal $700 rent for a teeny tiny apartment... which definitely helps the situation. However, I have not quite felt like myself. I need to find work so that I can feel accomplished, and also, so that Andrew and I can get our own place. I love my parent's house. It's nice, cozy, decorated nicely, full of wonderful people... but it's not full of our things... our decorations... our furniture... our bed... our dresser... our tv... our pots and pans. It's slightly uncomfortable. I definitely felt as though we were going to have an easy time sliding right into the transition here. However, with my numskull Staples idiots... I wasn't able to transfer (This in NO WAY reflects my staples). But I did know that I was not planning on staying with the company forever. It's just not what I want to do.

I don't want to be the begger who turns away cold soup or anything... but I just got my degree, and I want to do something with it. I don't want to be the girl who gets a CJ degree then goes into real estate!?! That's ridiculous. Enough about me. As we can all see I'm under a lot of pressure from... myself. On happier and brighter notes. I have a few pictures to share.

April: I thought this was a hilarious scene as all three of them (+ ROCKY) are trying to view you guys on Skype. I thought it was funnny but also really sweet. Adam (+ME) really miss Autumn & Weston a lot. I miss you too :(

Andrew went with Adam and Bryan's kiddos to a canal to go fishing. Apparently as soon as you throw your line in you catch something. However, Andrew was strangely fond of his crowning achievement:I thought it was adorable...
After the fishing expedition Andrew displayed his babysitting skillZ....

How he got ALL THREE of them to lay down at the same time is unimaginable! haha. But it was adorable that they all wanted to be like him and take a nap... even though they were faking!

Anyways, the search continues... I can't wait to get the photos from the Sanders Reunion so that I can put our picture as my blog header! :)
