James asked me to marry him last night!

Honestly it was such a huge surprise -- I mean, we've talked about getting married before, of course, but I didn't know that he had gotten a ring and all that jazz. I have no idea how he managed to keep it from me, but I was so shocked, and it was the best kind of shock ever!

The ring he picked for me is gorgeous, too; in his words, 'he dun good'. xD






Now I get to go on a frenzy of saving pictures and ideas and things, even though we have no date or anything like that planned out xD
athra: ([Firefly] cuddly!)
I have the best boyfriend ever ♥

When [livejournal.com profile] imthelobster got home from school tonight, we went out and got new phones, and I now have an iphone 4! :D Or, well, I will. They were out of stock on the 16gig, and we didn't see the need to get the 32gig, so we'll have them in the mail by the end of the week. STILL SO EXCITED!!! Also, I am majorly happy that Verizon got the iphones... I was going to get a Droid, since I refuse to go with AT&T, but now I didn't have to choose one or the other :D

Actually, I still almost went with the Droid just cause I like the actual keyboard (plus this is still one of the best things ever), but I played with the on-screen one in the Verizon store tonight, and it wasn't as awkward as I expected, and I know I'll get used to it pretty quickly. Also, they've apparently fixed the thing with the antenna that was messing up reception when you used a case, which is a bonus.

So, yeah. OMG IPHONE!!! Best Valentine's Day gift ever :D :D

(ps: keeping our numbers when switching from one provider to another was much easier than expected, thank god, because I was not willing to lose the phone number I've had since ninth grade, heh)

(pps: I had other things to post about, but I am le tired. Perhaps I will update more than once in a month!)
athra: ([DC] like flying)
This roof crap has turned into an even bigger pain in the ass than originally anticipated -- and considering I am replacing the whole frickin roof, I anticipated a lot. We decided to go with the first guy who gave us an estimate (we got three), cause it seemed pretty straightforward... until his boss came out to give us a new estimate, $350 more than the original. To cover "wood costs". WTF. First of all, we were told it was included in the first estimate ANYWAY, and second of all, just no. No way does wood cost that much, even if the whole roof needs it. Ugh, I hate people trying to screw me.

Anyway, I got another guy called up, and he came by today to give me the formal written estimate and whatnot. Magically, it matches what he originally told me! Wow, what a concept. Anyway, we're going with really light shingles, and the work should actually be started early next week. Thank God... and I'm sure [livejournal.com profile] imthelobster will be ridiculously happy to have his office back.

In better and more exciting news, [livejournal.com profile] imthelobster and I are going away to the beach this weekend, to celebrate our two year anniversary. ♥ I feel really lucky to be with him, you guys. I'm so looking forward to this weekend away, too... just away from work, and this house, and everything, and we can just relax and have some fun together and not worry about anything for a little bit. I really need it; I think we both do.
athra: ([WW] car keys)
So, an entry! I got a little behind on posting...

[livejournal.com profile] imthelobster's surgery went well, as most of you already know from either his journal or twitter, but it seemed strange not to mention it. We've been watching a looot of tv since we got back home haha



I finished reading Lies of Locke Lamora by Scott Lynch yesterday. cndjcvbjbj I LOVED IT. I don't know why I continue to doubt [livejournal.com profile] barbed_whispers when it comes to books, because she very, very rarely fails me. I almost wanted to read it over again as soon as I'd finished it, but I figured that might be a little much, so instead I've started Graceling, by Kristin Cashore. By 'started' I mean I read 200 pages last night when I should have been going to bed and then had to physically stop myself from reading more and force myself to go to sleep.

I need some sort of icon from Lies of Locke Lamora. [livejournal.com profile] barbed_whispers should get on that for me. >.>

I had a bit of a breakthrough in the original novel I'm writing. Now I just need to figure out where I'm going with it... and, again, type it all up. I wish I wasn't doing so much of the writing by hand, because I soooo prefer typing in the first place, but writing at work is way too convenient to pass up. :/
athra: ([Disney] pretty pretty Tink)
Merry Christmas guys! I hope all of you are having a great one ♥

Mine's been good... and I have the best boyfriend in the world. I love [livejournal.com profile] imthelobster a whole hell of a lot, and he is very good to me. :)

We went to my Dad's last night to do Christmas with him. They made me happy just because they did things like buy a new stocking so that James had one, too, and putting both our names on some of the gifts, as well as giving him a couple of things just for him. I'm so glad they're actually acknowledging how important this relationship is to me.
For me, they gave me a Wii Fit, so I'm really happy about that. I've been wanting it, and hopefully I'll actually use it regularly, since I could stand to lose some weight, for sure.

Today we had our Christmas morning together, and we're going to go to my Mom's for dinner tonight. So a pretty relaxed Christmas all in all, but I like that it's not been stressful or too overly crazy.

Hopefully next year we'll be going up to Vermont and spending Christmas with his family. Somehow we're going to manage to make that happen.
athra: ([SG1] bother!)
Why do I like such shitty television sometimes? LOL. I've been watching Dancing with the Stars, and I have no idea why. The dancing really is kind of sub-par haha. But whatever, it gives me something to watch in the background.

So, for the next three days, [livejournal.com profile] imthelobster is opening at work, and I'm closing. :( I haaate days like that, especially when they come in stretches, because we basically don't see each other at all. I wish it didn't happen so freaking often. Sigh.

ZOMG I GOT A NEW COMPUTER MONITOR!!!

It is a 22" wide screen, and it is SO LOVELY I don't even. :D :D :D :D :D :D

I am justifying this purchase by calling it a birthday gift to myself.

Also, it was on clearance.

BUT OMG MONITOR!!!!!!!!

Also, [livejournal.com profile] imthelobster is the best EVER. :D

PSA!

[livejournal.com profile] imthelobster is evil. EVIL!

And also very, very awesome. Hee. :D
athra: ([wow] damn the horde!)
1. Caffeine pills. Sweet, glorious caffeine pills, which are the only reason I am still awake and not asleep at the desk where I am working.

2. Arcane Brilliance for giving me something to read in-between all the customers at work.

3. Let me vague this up for you: certain things are seeming better than expected, which is a somewhat-unexpected but definitely not unpleasant surprise. OOOOOOH, VAGUE, I AM SO COOL. Only, totally not, but whatever.

4. LIFE, Y'ALL. LIFE. URGH.

I'm an idiot sometimes.

I don't give my dad enough credit, most of the time. My mom I sometimes give too much, but my dad... never enough.

And I worry too much, too, as I've been informed. Definitely a worrier. I should work on that.

Important thing: everything is good. :)

My mom has been very upset that it is, apparently, 'blizzarding' in Ohio. I have no idea what her idea of a blizzard is, but thankfully, as [livejournal.com profile] imthelobster and I do not live in Canada (:P haha) I do not have to worry about snow! :D However, it is cooling down quite nicely and I'm enjoying that. <3

You guys. I'm feeling all... ugh. I want to paint! The walls! Like a real home or something! And decorate. And... and. What is up with that? Silly.

I am ♥ing Wrath of the Lich King so far. It's slightly annoying how crowded everything is, but... whatevs. I wish I wasn't at work so I could be playing. :( sad times.

Other random things: I still don't like the new user info but I'm getting somewhat used to it, and I tweaked my journal a little bit today... probably not done tweaking, but it's something, for now.
athra: ([misc] kitty + apple)
For the record?

When [livejournal.com profile] imthelobster wakes up and stretches her way right off the bed, it's pretty much the most hilarious thing ever. :)
athra: ([Firefly] love my captain mal/kaylee)
I just signed into aim express from work (shhh) and came to the immediate conclusion that I need to clean out my buddy list. I have people on there that I haven't talked to in years. Screennames I'm not even sure exist anymore, actually. heh.

But anyway, life is good!

I am (mostly) moved into the house with [livejournal.com profile] barbed_whispers and [livejournal.com profile] imthelobster, yaaaaay! I still need to unpack, and clean the apartment out, and etc yadda yadda boring, but... house! yay! AND the washer got hooked up today so I can ACTUALLY DO LAUNDRY, thank god.

PLUS PLUS PLUS. I am talking to [livejournal.com profile] simplykatie right now WHO I HAVE MISSED TIMES A BAJILLION. <333 (I really should work on txting you more often... that, I could do. heh.)

Most important fact in my life at the current moment: right now, I am happy. :) (okay, so that's a sort of vague most important fact, since ACTUALLY the most important fact is WHY I am happy, but you know. Whatever works!)

Also, apparently I am bouncy and randomly hyper tonight. WHERE DID ALL THIS ENERGY COME FROM?
athra: ([CAPSLOCK ROYALTY] jolly ranchers)
Excited: check.

Freaking out: check.

I'm leaving in like 10 minutes...
::FLAILS::
athra: ([CAPSLOCK ROYALTY] jolly ranchers)
OMG.

OMG!

In EIGHT DAYS?

[livejournal.com profile] imthelobster will be HERE. AT MY HOUSE. STAYING WITH ME.

OMG.

::FREAKS OUT::
