Freshman Year of High School Survey

Taken from Vic’s LJ:
(If you’d like to copy it, check out my LJ since you won’t be able to highlight it here.)

[What year was it?]
96-97

[What were your three favorite bands?]
Jewel, TLC, Lisa Loeb ? I had a whole bunch of favorites.

[What was your favorite outfit?]
I think that would be any of my overalls and baby T’s. I loved those things for some reason.

[What was up with your hair?]
Tried blow-drying it straight most of the time. Other times all my friends would meet in the morning and we’d do crazy shit to our hair :P. Other than that, I just had it in a bun.

[Who was your best friend?]
Sally B., Vero M., Dayse V., Angie Q., Jessica M., Gina A.

[What did you do after school?]
Hung out with friends while we waited for the bus, then I either went to Sally’s or Vero’s and we’d rollerblade. If they weren’t around I’d go rollerblading with my bro at the elementary school near our house.

[Where did you work?]
Didn’t work. No one would hire me *cries*.

[Did you take the bus?]
Yep.

[Who did you have a crush on?]
God I had lots of crushes LOL. The ones that stand out from the first high school I went to (moved the last 6 weeks of school to another) were Eric G. (even though he was a bastard when he was my boyfriend) and my childhood friend Lazaro B. I wonder what happened to him :(? Then when I met my hubby and his friends, I had a crush on him :).

[Did you fight with your parents?]
Oh yeah. With my Mom (Dad wasn’t around). I was a bitch back then.

[Who did you have a CELEBRITY crush on?]
Jonathon Taylor Thomas *hides* and Jonathon Brandis (R.I.P)

[Did you smoke cigarettes?]
Nope

[Did you lug all of your books around in your backpack all day because you were too nervous to find your locker?]
No way. I loved my locker. All my friend’s lockers were around mine and those who weren’t would stuff their things in ours. We’d hang out there during lunch.

[Did you have a ‘clique’?]
Not really a clique…it was just our close group of friends.

[Did you have a “Max” like Zach Kelly and Slater?]
Our Max was the mall LOL.

[Admit it, were you popular?]
Not popular, but I knew lots of people because I’d lived there my whole life. Then when I moved, everyone knew me because I was “the short new girl with the big boobs.” No, really >_< . [Who did you want to be just like?]
No one in particular, though I did admire my friend Sally’s confidence. I lacked that…a lot.

[What did you want to be when you grew up?]
For the longest time, a veterinarian, but then I saw Animal Planet and I just don’t think I could do it. After that, I had no idea and I still don’t.

[Where did you think you’d be at the age you are now?]
I knew for sure I’d have a family (always knew I’d be a young mom/wife). I did expect to have had some college education and maybe a job, but things worked out a bit differently ;).

It’s Back! My Site Is Back!

*kisses pixydust.net* Oh my God, I was dying yesterday. I *need* to write type down what I’m eating because for some reason it helps keep me in check, and my darn site was down ALL DAY! My host kept trying to bill me since Jan. 1st, and they still haven’t gotten the payment. I kept getting weird e-mails from them (with just ‘Pixiehost Billing’ in the e-mail and no subject line) and they never charged my credit card. Then yesterday, they suspended my site . I was being a pain in the ass, I know this, and kept posting on the forums and submitting tickets…but I was desperate! And I didn’t do anything wrong! I was so worried they were going to delete my site, too (because after 14 days of non-payment, they remove the site from the server). I’m just glad everything’s back to normal and they’re going to get someone to figure everything out with my billing issue. *whew*

So everything was cool during Jorge’s birthday on Thursday night. Our kids played with their kids and at around 10:30 (an hour and a half later than his bedtime), I put Eenan to sleep in one of the rooms and thank God he stayed asleep. I just chilled out with Maggie, her sister and her sister’s daughter and helped out with little things here and there.

John didn’t come over this weekend, don’t know why. I’m assuming it’s because he’s tired of me telling him to just quit talking to his ex. It could also be because I keep bugging him to eat right (because he goes hours without eating) and he’s prone to getting diabetes and skipping meals will only speed it along. I’ll never understand him.

Aunt Nora and Mom called a few days ago to let me know about problems they’re having with one of Gramma’s checks. Long ago, around 1995, she was receiving a supplemental check (or something like that) and they took it away when we moved. I’m still not sure why. Well, when Aunt Nora went to pay the nursing home, they tell her she owes $100-some because she’s not turning in that other check. She tells them Gramma hasn’t gotten it since ’95 and they say that she should be getting one. Aunt Nora calls Social Security and sure enough, there’s a check going out to Gramma, but no one knows where and they definetly are being cashed. So now they have to figure out who’s been cashing them and all that stuff. What morons. They were even telling Aunt Nora something about possibly having to “pay back”…hello? We haven’t received anything, why should WE pay back? Grr. .

As for our income tax, we figured we aren’t getting too much, because Mario didn’t work 7 months out of last year and of course, I didn’t work. We were planning to put some money on our property, but that’s not happening. And we definetly won’t be able to buy new wedding rings .

Yesterday was Bonnie’s birthday, so we all got together and ate cake. Yes, I broke down and ate 2 small pieces of cake, but I figured I’d been good, so I indulged. We flipped through Mary’s photo albums and had a nice time listening to stories behind certain pictures.

Mario has today off, but he won’t be having his days off again for a long while. All during Income Tax season. We went to JCPenny to get Eenan a new shirt for his Group Picture. While we were there, the boys found some dinosaur shirts that came with a glow-in-the-dark dinosaur and begged for them, so we got them matching shirts. They had such cute clothes in the juniors department…I hope I can lose a few pounds and buy some. The colors were all pastel-y and cute!

We went to visit Gramma for a while after that. I hadn’t seen her in 3 weeks! It was nice seeing her. All the physical therapy they’re doing with her is helping her out tremendously. She can actually pull her legs in front of her now and move her feet. Before, she always had her legs curled up to one side and it hurt her to move them. Mary and I were talking about that a few days ago and she said it’s the best thing that could have happened to her. I agree. We miss her SO MUCH but we’re thrilled she gets to socialize with others her age and she does physical therapy and gets her nails done and everything .

We went to H-E-B and picked up a few groceries, mostly for bar-be-cuing at Jorge’s tonight. Mario’s making his famous homemade Buffalo Wings. Must be strong and only eat a few!

Going to update my weight-loss log thingy since I missed yesterday.
