A Timeline (with some TMI)
June 20, 2008 - I turned 30.
July 5, 2008 - My father is diagnosed with an aggressive cancer.
September 20, 2008 - Jeff proposes. The proposal was a bit of a let-down, but had its own story. It was kind of rushed anyway, as I didn't kn... Read more
As I posted in my status update today, I had both a scale victory and a non-scale victory!
The scale victory is when I get a new low, especially one that gives me a new pound-number, not just lower fraction of a pound. So today I hit 156.8.... Read more
Haven't posted here in a while
Things have been going surprisingly well. Except for the STILL UNEMPLOYED part. That's getting stressful. But again, I'd rather take the stress of job hunting over what I went through last year.
Yesterday marked the day Jeff began cheating ... Read more
Taking advice (long and ranty and blowing off steam)
Things have been busy in the Firebudgie household. Most of the action has been in my head.
First of all, The Guy...
Finally got my stuff from the apartment. This came after a series of as-rude-as-he-can-be-while-cla

Fun with statistics, and other things
I've had my iPod Nano (6th gen) for HOW long now, and never used the Nike+/pedometer functionality before WHY?!
I love statistics stuff! It's why I love my heart rate monitor (the watch is still at the apartment, but I need to get new batte... Read more
*Putting on a brave face* (Wall of text crits you for OVER 9000!)
The past week has had its ups and downs.
Jezi moving in has been AMAZING. I keep apologizing for coming off as neurotic about things like cleaning up the house and doing dishes or laundry immediately, but it's because I don't want to slip i... Read more
Tired Budgie is Tired
Tonight is my last night of living on my own. And this time, it's a good thing. Jezi (Jezi_Sue here on SparkPeople) is in the process of driving up here to move in and be my roommate. She's staying in Atlanta tonight, and should arrive tomorrow ... Read more
I am SO evil. XD
How to lose 300+ pounds in a weekend:
Dump the guy who's mooching off you.
You'll still have lots of blood, sweat, and tears, but that's from the emotion of going through it, and the workout involved in moving.
There are a lot of ... Read more
Finally on my own (another LONG relationship TMI update)
I moved yesterday. I had text messages flying between me and two friends (Jezi and Leo) whenever I could take a break, but most of the day was spent schlepping stuff from the apartment to the house, just so I could live here.
I have a ton o... Read more
It's a Beautiful Day!
I'm sitting here right now listening to the title song by U2 on repeat with tears rolling down my face.
The Guy had a day off, so he was awake for a while and is napping right now. I don't think he has actually gotten out ... Read more
SOFA KING EXCITED!
I mentioned in my last post that I had to go fixture shopping for the bathrooms and kitchen to replace the leaky faucets. The thought of spending money made me groan.
The other downside to the plumbing issues is that the water filter system... Read more
Progress (Follow up to last post)
I'm still pissed at The Guy, but it has fueled that fire under my butt to get things done.
Earlier this week I was trying to get the water turned on at the house. I called last week and they left a note on the door saying there was... Read more
Updates (and relationship TMI)
So I haven't been posting anywhere as much as I wanted to. I've just had a lot going on and on my mind lately. I figured I was due to post an update.
Haven't been eating or exercising the way I was. I want to, but right now everything's rat... Read more
Long time, no post, I know I know. I haven't posted on my Wordpress blog, either. Or on one of the LJ communities I'm a member of that's all about fitness. Heck, I haven't been so great about eating right and exercising lately. I've put on some ... Read more
BEST BLIZZCON EVER!
Lots of stories to come, but a few highlights:
Seeing my bestie, Jezzie! And all the other Portent Alliance people!
Meeting Fyreuni of Daiy Quests comic (http://daily-quests.com/comic
