I did a google search last night for an old boyfriend since I hadn't heard from him in over a year. I sent him an email and we chatted a bit today. It was nice to know he was ok. The guy I was seeing last week has apparently decided he doesn't want to see me anymore since I haven't seen or heard from him since Sunday. Men can be such asses.

Its actually been nice weather today compared to last weekend. There is a high of 40 today. Mandi went to Shannon's a minute ago and I am glad. I get so tired of her treating me like shit when I am the one who supports her ungrateful ass. All I did was ask her to spend less than 30 seconds to vacuum the living room and she went off. She reminds me of Lisa with that attitude. Its not like I haven't done the dishes, laundry and cleaned the rest of the house.
I joined a discussion list on tarot. I have the cards I got from Barnes and Noble and I bought a book from there the other day but so far thats all I have done with it. I would like to know how to use my cards. I guess I need to mail my taxes out tomorrow.

Mandi is spending the weekend with her friends again I guess. The temp agency has a really great job for me if everything checks out ok. I would really like to have a good job just once. I am afraid the transmission is going out in the car and unless I get another job and some money soon I won't be able to get it fixed. I did a merchandising job yesterday and learned a valuable lesson. I won't do hard jobs that take a lot of time for not enough money. It took me 2 hours to make $8.

I got a really cool quote in my email today. I like that message it sends.
"The most self-destructive thought that any person can have is thinking that he or she is not in total control of his or her life. That's when, ‘Why me?’ becomes a theme song."
-- Roger Dawson

All that got me thinking of my past and men I have loved. I think humans should have some instinct that would make you not fall in love with someone who doesn't love you back. It would be nice and a lot less painful. Sometimes, I wonder how you can love someone so much that it feels like your soul is torn apart without him and yet you are nothing at all to him. Thankfully I have only loved one person that much and I don't plan on ever feeling like that again. So that explains the melancholy heading. I think possible I just don't want to try and fail again. But life is about trying. When you quit trying you are dead. I guess its a wait and see game.
Motley Crue is coming to NC and the concert is already sold out. My daughter burst into tears at the news. She loves Tommy Lee. I wonder how much scalped tickets would cost. I think I will try to win some off the radio.

Wikipedia This is a really cool encyclopedia. I had a blast looking up different things.
Satisfacton Services This is another mystery shop site. I would like to do more shops than I am doing now.
Preparing for College Mandi is going to start this fall so this was a helpful site.
I joined a whole slew of newsgroups on a variety of topics. But today it is back to the daily grindstone. I have to close one store tonight and then open at my regular store in the morning. I will have to make myself go straight to bed so I can get up at 3:30. Tomorrow I am going to the temp agency so I can get registered and do all the paperwork so that by next Monday I will be ready to start working.

I went out and bought the sunday papers so I could have the coupons but now I know to not waste my money buying the Mt Airy paper. It doesn't have coupons in it. I saved about $5 last week using coupons and I sent in rebates for several items. I need to get one more receipt and I will have completed the $10 pepsi rebate. I am going to save all my rebate money and I am also getting a lot of items that they have for sending in upc's. Those will be xmas presents this year. I have several for t-shirts that I need to get upc's for.
I called my best friend Debbie in WV today. It was good talking to her. I really need to work on making more friends here. A friend of mine out here had her baby a couple days ago but the baby died. It was so sad. I know her mother is devasted. This was her first grandchild and she was really looking forward to spoiling her. Sometimes life can be so sad. I have been sad myself because I miss Randy but I know getting him out of my life was the best thing for me. I just mostly miss him because now I have this empty space with nothing to fill it with. I seem to spend all my time at work or online. Hopefully when I start working 2 jobs I will have enough money to finally go do a few things.

I have been collecting and organizing coupons like crazy. I stocked up on some stuff at the store yesterday. I really want to save money this year. I am about as tired of being poor as I am of being fat. I have sent out 2 rebates so far this year for about $12 so thats not too bad for a newbie. I joined some coupon and rebate newsletters so I would be sure and hear about good deals and know to watch for them.

I went shopping at Eckerd's and bought a few things to complete a rebate offer. I got 2 colgate totals (with free toothbrushes attached) and a bottle of palmolive and ajax dish liquid. After coupons, it cost me $3.25 and the rebate is $10 so I will have made a profit. I went by the library and they were having a book sale. I got 4 Janet Evanovich books for $1.00. She is one of my top 10 favorite writers so I was really thrilled with this one.
I have done pretty well dieting today but my feet were killing me after work and then going shopping so I didn't walk. If I get to feeling better this evening I might go walking. But all in all its been a good day.

There was an opposum on the porch this morning after I feed the cats. I think he is living under the trailer because he was there as soon as I put the food out. Guess I am only going to be able to feed them in the daylight hours. Tomorrow I have to go get the car legal since they were closed friday and they have had road checks 2 days straight now. Mandi's friend Jessica is spending the night here tonight.
Being frugal is so far the only resolution I have managed to keep. I have done nothing but eat the last 2 days so there hasn't been any weight loss thats for sure.
