Anyway I decided I was hungry, like a lion, and wanted to make me some food.
Now I wasn't super hungry because I ate some food before work but anyways.
I decided on a couple eggs. (Good choice Lindsey, *pat myself on the back*, they were really good in the end.)
So I got through with my first egg. Success! Then right as I'm putting my first egg on the plate in the corner of my eye I see something moving.
I had set the other egg on our microwave cart to be closer to the stove so I wouldn't have to move around alot and could just reach over and grab it. (Bad Idea)
The next thing I know as I'm turning my head I watch as it falls to the ground. (Great, just what I needed)
So now the first egg is starting to get cold while I have to clean up the second egg off the floor, while yelling at little man to stay out of the kitchen because I didn't want him to eat it.
So got the mess cleaned up and its back to the stove to make a second egg. And they did end up tasting really good.
Although the good thing is I now know which way our kitchen floor slants.
One day this one caught my eye.
As you can tell from the title of the post that they are Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies.
Its pretty simple actually.
Your suppose to get a box of brownie mix and make as directed.
After you've put the brownie mix in the pan, you pour the peanut butter over the brownies and swirl it around.

Last night Ashley's mom rescued a small turtle from the highway while at work. She decided that Ashley and my self's home would be good for it.
She brought it to the house around midnight once she got back into town from work. He arrived in a box and she had bought it some lettuce to munch on.
He now is living in our bathtub until we are able to get him a better home.
We haven't named him and were not even sure that he is a he.
This is my first time owning a turtle, even though Mikey and Shane have two and my sister, Ashley's, boyfriend, Andrew, has a tortoise.
Any ideas for a good name?

Anyway I got home, not long before Ashley left for work.
I was comfy on the couch in a pretty decent mood (minus the anger towards Daniel) writing to my pen pals.
Then I received a call from Ashley asking me for a favor. Of course I hate when she asks me that, because I'm probably not going to want to do it but end up doing it because there's no one else to do it. She had left her bank card on the table and she doesn't carry cash. Not to mention she buys food during her shift at work so she needed it.
I agreed, sadly and angrily to do it. Knowing that it was going to take time out of my night when I was the most productive.
As I started my trip to where she works I was still arguing with Daniel, over something that didn't need to be argued and I apologized this morning for it. So not only was I sad and upset about that but I was also angry because I had to do Ashley her favor.
You know with all the favors Ive done her, she is going to have to do something really big to make up for all of it.
Anyway. Not only was I on a country highway but I also had to keep my eyes open for deer that might be in the ditches plotting to make an attack on my car.
Then when I was a little less than half way there it started to rain. Not to bad at first but then it started to down pour and I could only see a few feet in front of me slowing me dramatically in my quest to make it there safely.
I finally made it. But the rain hadn't let up and I wanted to get home and be comfy again. So at my slower that a grandma driving pace, I made my way back to my comfy couch.
And during my long drive I had time to calm down and allow myself to be in a better mood when I arrived home.

BREAKING DAWN, the hotly anticipated fourth and final book in the bestselling crossover teen vampire series Twilight, wraps up some very important questions in the gripping and wildly romantic story of Bella Swan. Split into three sections, one of which is narrated by werewolf Jacob Black, the story opens with Bella driving along, thinking about her impending wedding to Edward. Although it seems that she's about to get exactly what she wants, Bella has no idea what lays in store for her: a near-death transformation, an all-out vampire war, and many painfully divided loyalties.
Well I finally finished the Twilight saga. I think the beginning was rushed. And I'm not really sure I liked the ending I cant really say to much because I don't want to ruin anything. But the middle of the book I thought was pretty good.
I have decided that I like reading the book before watching the movie, otherwise I know whats going to happen in the book.

So I decided to share some of that useless knowledge.
'The magic word "Abracadabra" was originally intended for the specific purpose or curing hay fever.'

I want to be able to grab your buttons and what not and I want to make my blog friendlier.
Could anyone give me some advice. Particularly on how to add stuff to my blog, such as buttons from other blogs.
Feeling hungry. Made some chicken Alfredo (I made the chicken pretty fatty but it was good).
Captain getting use to his new home.

So we went to see if I could adopt one that day. We arrived in high spirits, hopeful that one of the cute dogs would soon be one to call my own.
There were already alot of people there wanting to adopt their own animals.
We filled out the form and got our buzzer to let us know when it would finally be our turn.
We looked through the cats and at the critter corner to see if maybe Ashley would find another pet to own.
When we first got there the woman at the desk told us it would only be about an hour wait. An hour went by not to fast but not to slow either. But by this time we were both getting a little irritated from waiting.
So since we were waiting for someone to assist me in finding the right dog for me, Ashley decided she wanted to get a ferret. We put in her form to look at one and she got her buzzer as well. The wait for an animal continued.
There wasn't much call for people to look at ferrets so Ashley was able to get in and hold the ferret she thought she wanted. It only took a matter of minutes before Ashley decided she wanted him. So she was off to adopt him. Right after we get to the counter to put the final touches on officially adopting him my buzzer decided it was time for me to choose my dog.
My person (I don't remember her name) was extremely up beat and almost made me want to throw up from her happiness. But we went back to the kennels with the dog and started looking for a smaller dog that would fit comfortably into our home. Ashley and I should of went back there and looked at the dogs before we waited all that time because when I went back there with my helper I only found bigger dogs. (We would of gone back their earlier but the lady at the front desk told us that we had to wait for someone to go back there with us to look at the dogs. Needless to say that was a total lie!)
So Ashley walked away with a new ferret that she has now named Captain. And I walked away empty handed for the second time in getting a dog.
You may be wondering about the first time. I hadn't blogged anything about getting a dog earlier because I didn't want to jinx it but it didn't really matter. A couple of weeks ago I was suppose to be getting a dog from Ashley's Aunt because she no longer wanted so many dogs (she had 4). It was getting close to the day for us to go pick him up and I was starting to get excited I even got him a little toy. But not to long before I was suppose to get him Ashley called me up at work and told me her cousin had thrown a fit and now I was not going to be getting the dog.
I guess Ill just have to keep looking.

And since it's Friday, we have to keep it light and give you a YouTube clip to watch. This one is of a Nike commercial that uses "Friday the 13Th" killer Jason Voorhees' likeness. No Friday The 13Th Superstitions here.
Detective Allen Gamble is a forensic accountant who's more interested in paperwork than hitting the streets. Detective Terry Hoitz is a tough guy who has been stuck with Allen as his partner ever since an unfortunate run-in with Derek Jeter. Allen and Terry idolize the city's top cops, Danson and Highsmith, but when an opportunity arises for the Other Guys to step up, things don't quite go as planned.
It was pretty funny. But I guess it wasn't what I thought it would be. I knew it was suppose to be funny but not as funny as I assumed it would be.

I LOVED this movie! The fight scenes were very well played. I want to own this movie. There is some humor in it and it makes the movie that much better. I'm still uncertain if I like the ending or not. I would have to watch again to make a final decision. But I think this movie is a must watch. Decide for yourself.

As some of you know I went boating with my friends; Daniel, Justin, Joy, and Emmy. It was so nice on the lake. The sun was shining and there was barely anyone on the lake, since it was a week day.
At first we were having problems with the boat. It was tipping to one side when you went to fast. Justin's dad finally called him back and we got that straightened out.
Then we went tubing. And I think I went one to many times. Every time I got flung off I think I hit the water a little harder than the time before.
We swam and snacked. After my last run on the tube I decided I was pretty much done for the day. So while the others swam I layed on the boat and tanned. The sun felt so nice on my skin.
Of course I didn't use sunscreen because I'm an idiot and I burnt to a crisp.
After we got the boat out of the water we learned that the prop or whatever wasn't going up all the way. We couldn't figure out why. So while I went and changed into dry clothes the guys stood around trying to figure it out.
A guy from the lakes marina finally helped and they figured it out together. Then it was off to eat. And I was starving.
It was a great day. And I cant wait to do it again, minus the tube.
**If you for some reason you decided to read on don't say I didn't warn you.
So I'm back to my blog and I have missed it soo much! I know I'm behind on reading every one's blogs but hopefully Ill catch up on everything within the next couple days. If you think there is a blog that was posted that you think Id like to read please give the link and I would love to check it out.
Moving on. This afternoon is a time where I would like to have an out of body experience. I may be a woman but that doesn't mean I like to do the things we have to do. Example having a period. I hate having it. I don't even like to say the word period unless it deals with the thing on the end of a sentence. And I know you can be on the depo shot and not have a period. Well I tried that option and it made my face break out so bad!
Another example of me not liking being a woman is having to get a yearly pap smear. I bet most of you already knew what this post was about from the title. But anyway. Yes today is my annual pap test. Congrats right? I know it needs to be done to make sure I'm healthy and what not down there but I just wish there was some other way to go about it.
The only good thing I like about doing this is I found a really good doctor. She is in and out in only a few seconds. When I went to her one of the first couple times my mom went to the bathroom while I got checked in. They got me in right away and I was out in no time. My mom barely started reading her magazine in the waiting room when I came out. She thought there was something wrong.
All in all wish me luck that it goes smoothly and there's nothing wrong!

Tuesday I slept a good portion of the day. Then I came to Woodbine to ran some errands. Did some recycling, went to the bank, and paid my car payment. Then I went back to Dunlap to pay the rent. Then it was off to work.
*The reason Ive been so tired this week I'm blaming on mother nature. If you don't get it from just that reference Ill explain in more detail. Guys if you read this cover your eyes. I'm having my period this week *shudder* (I'm 20 and still don't like to say period when it deals with my innards instead of the end of a sentence).
Today I'm hanging out at my parents house borrowing their Internet since I don't have Internet at my house. Then I'm going to go home and shower. Tonight I plan on hanging out with Daniel at the shop (the shop is the place where they work on their race cars and drink). Just hanging out and drinking.
Tomorrow I'm going to be taking Little Man to the vet to get his nails cut. Since neither Ashley nor I will do it. Then Daniel invited me to go boating with him, Justin, and Joy (Justin's girlfriend). Well be on the lake most the day probably drinking. Then that night who knows.
Friday I will most likely be lazy most of the day. Then I will head to work. Its taco night and I'm super excited. My family said they would come for some tacos.
Saturday I will either be going to the races or going to hang out with my friends in CB. Since we still haven't celebrated Jenny's b-day ( well she might of already but I haven't celebrated with her, I know I'm slacking on my duties as a friend).
There you have it my week summed up in one blog. Weird?
