My Trip... so far!!

Okay... I'm going to assume that this will be a somewhat lengthy post... or maybe I should just break them up into sections? LOL... okay... I think I shall! :D (Probably won't get to post everything now, so I'll continue throughout the day or the next few days!)


My flight was supposed to depart Seattle at 10:25pm. Meaning... I left for the airport around 8pm (well, I was supposed to, but truth is... I was there around 9:15pm... LOL... and I live about 15 minutes away from the airport). My Sister dropped me off and I thought I was flying with Delta (it said so), so I went to check in and it turned out that it was being operated by Northwest (then why the heck did you bother including Delta? Did you just want to confuse me?). So... I dragged my luggage(s) to the other end of the airport terminal (UGH!) and when I finally got there, this lady found it more important to stand there and chit chat with her coworker than to check me in. I looked frustrated and grew very impatient so I started moaning and groaning because I thought I was surely gonna miss my flight. She told me she'd be right with me... but it wasn't until she finished her last giggles with her coworker at least five minues later. Grrr! So she finally started to check me in and was doing it taking her sweet little time... seeing that my plane was going to depart in less than an hour. I mean... I know I could have been there earlier, but how did she know that I wasn't caught in an unplanned bad accident traffic or something? Anyway... so she told me that my luggage was going to cost $15 to check in for the first one and $25 for the second. Okay... I fly pretty often and usually, my first luggage is free. I was like... "WHAT!?!" She explained to me like I was stupid, but I didn't really have time to deal with her, so I just paid my $15 and handed her my heavy ass luggage. Finally, I was on my way with my carry on and Sam's camera that was heavy as heck and took the place of my purse. Booo!

Thankfully, security checkpoint was a breeze and I made my flight afterall! :)

I got to Detroit at 5am (2am my time), so I didn't get any sleep, as you can imagine. (Was too excited and the babies crying on the plane just weren't helping) Anyway... I had a nearly 5 hour layover in Detroit... WTF. No way I could have fell asleep in an airport terminal. I mean... what if I snored or drooled or something? How embarrasing! Worst of all... what if I missed my flight? So I had my Starbucks fix and explored a little bit. I was pisst off that I left my book at home, but I couldn't get myself to pay for another book when I just bought two that I hadn't read yet back at home. So I sat there and played Solitaire on my phone for the entire four almost five hours. HAHA!

Finally boarded the plane and even more kids on this flight! Yikes! AND it was a small airplane and the engine was freakin' loud. I swear it basically screamed in my ear. Thank goodness for my iPod and luckily, it was a pretty short flight.

Got to Florida and Sam texted me and told me he was nervous to see me when he was waiting at baggage claim... awwww!!!

Finally, there he was... my BABYYYYYY!! :)

In Trouble...

Yeah... Sam's in so much trouble!! Well, I haven't talked to him yet today, but he's going to be in so much trouble!

WHY? Because I had a bad dream.... a really really bad one where he was being bad!! o_O

I hope I don't forget all the details by the time I talk to him because it was pretty detailed! LOL

I feel BAD...

I feel bad for talking back to my Momma sometimes. I can't help it. It seems like every time she sees my face, she's in a bad mood and talks about all these negative things. HAHA! I guess its not THAT bad, but we always bump heads. I think we were a lot closer when I wasn't living at home. Distance really does make the heart grow fonder.

Confession: I don't know how I'm going to leave my Parents when it comes down to moving time. :(

Good Things are Happenin'!!

So... my Aunt is doing better and she might be released tomorrow! I'll be there at the hospital later tonight to help interpret. Supposedly, she feels more comfortable with me there since her kids are quiet and sort of reluctant to ask too many questions. Dude... I think doctors and nurses hate me because I ask too many questions... no matter how big or small. Sorry if I just want to know what the heck is going on with my loved ones!! But yeah... just glad that she's doing better and able to talk again. YAYYY! Thanks to all those who had her in their thoughts and prayers! :)

I can't believe I'm going to go see Sam in just 4 days... well, I'll get there in 5 days, but still. I've been waiting for the day to come for too long! I still don't know what else to do in Orlando besides Disneyworld. Right now, I just want to relax on the beach. It feels good to take a nap in hot weather and the tan is definitely a plus! His Parents are coming out to meet us next week, so maybe we'll also do some exploring? Hehe... excited!

I asked Justin if he'd beat his Mom up for me if I gave him a million dollars. (I was mad at his Mom for some reason and I don't remember) He went and punched her and she asked him why. He said, "I want a million dollars!" LOL. I know... I'm horrible for having the kid do that, but I honestly didn't think that he would because he loves his Mom. Well... I guess he loves a million bucks more! HAHA!

I woke up and couldn't find my glasses this morning. I had to go put on my contacts only to find them on my bed next to my pillow. How can I be so freakin' blind? UGH!

May 18, 2009

Dream... or Nightmare?

So last night, I dreamt that I was being chased and attacked by so many freakin' snakes. My heart was racing while I was sleeping. It was terrifying. I hate snakes... scary! One of the many snakes that I remembered VERY clearly in my dream though was a two headed snake. I was just telling my Mom about the dream because I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep. She was like, "be careful... maybe there's two people who love you". I was like... "MOM... thats an insult! More people gotta love me than that!" She almost hit me! LOL!

Just Sew You Know...

After visiting all the Khmer tailor shops in Long Beach with my Mom and Sister... I really wish I knew how to sew. My life would be so much easier (I'd think). LOL! I wonder if there's a way to learn how to sew on YouTube! I mean... you can pretty much learn how to do everything else on YouTube... why not sew?

I'm so excited to get my dress next month. French (beaded) lace at $100 a yard? Yeah... this shit better be worth it!! (I know that paying $100 a yard for some fabric seems a bit extreme, but its so pretty! :D)

Too Hot!

It is hot as heck! I don't remember the last time it was this hot in Seattle. Actually, I shouldn't be complaining since it was a really nice weekend. Could have used a few more breezes though.

Woke up early to go visit my Aunt at the hospital this morning. (My Mom's other older Sister) Her heart is having complications and she will have to stay there to be monitored for awhile because it doesn't seem to be getting any better than yesterday morning. :( She'll be just fine though... I know she's going to keep on fighting. She was so cute this morning (well... she always is). My cousin, Pheap, was with her and I guess the rest of her siblings (she has lots) will be switching back and forth to stay with her. My Aunt's brave though... she said she doesn't need anybody! LOL! My Dad is such a punk... he was making comments on how incredibly short my Aunt's legs were while she was in bed! He's like, "are they usually this short?" LOL... he was just teasing her! :D OH... I made my Daddy tell Mom that he loved her in the elevator today. HAHA... Mom blushed! So cute!

I hate weekends because thats when I'm always always eating out with the fam bam... and boy do we love buffets! HAHA!

Came home and mowed the lawn today. Not posting that on Facebook because those punk asses are just going to make fun of me again! Was going to do some gardening and trim the flowers and trees around the arch in front of the house, but the damn sun was not being friendly to me.

I can't stand the heat. I don't know how I'm going to survive living in California. HECK... I don't know how I'm going to tolerate Florida and Georgia next week! Ahhhh... if I could, I'd walk around naked! LOL... sike! Indecent exposure!

The kids across the street had a lemonade stand up. It was going for 50 cents a cup. A lot of cars stopped and bought some to support the kiddos since the house next door is selling and had an open house. Also... a few houses in our community was having garage sales. How messed up would it be if I set up a stand and sold mine for only 45 cents a cup? HAHA! HEY... whatever makes the money, honey!

So I'm back at home and FINALLY got the laptop goin' again! I don't know how I survived without the internet for so long! Thank goodness for my Facebook updates sent to my phone, or else I don't think I would still be alive right now. HAHA jk!

My trip to California was okay... I didn't get to see any friends with the exception of Rocky going to the mall with my nieces and I at one point. He doesn't count. LOL!

Relatives' wedding was... ehhhh... okay. I liked my dress, but camera was DEAD. How lame! I managed to snap a shot of myself with my phone for Sam though (and for Facebook, of course! LOL)

Can you believe they still leave the heads on the quails down there? OMG! I guess its normal for them, but I like my quails headless when they're on my plate. Sort of disturbing, but that little leg thats missing in this picture was pretty tasty! LOL

My Parents got to hang out with Sam's Parents quite a bit. His Mom and my Mom did some shopping together and oh my gosh... should have seen them in action! HAHA! We had dinner together 4 nights out of the 7 nights we were there, so it wasn't so bad. :)

My Mom did a whole lot of shopping... and I mean a LOT! She also got six different Khmer outfits made there for my wedding... SIX! WTF! I think she'll be changing more often than the Bride will be! I got a dress made there too... I can't wait for it! So excited!

I say that this trip was OKAY because I didn't have my own schedule and I was practically there to act as a chauffer to everyone. Ugh. I threw a few fits here and there... but overall, I was glad to spend as much time as I did with my family. My nieces, nephews, and I bonded... and we learned more about each other than we really needed to learn. HAHA!

I get to go see my Honey in exactly 7 days. OMG... I didn't even unpack yet and he's bugging me about packing and getting mad at me because I haven't packed yet. He thinks I'm not looking forward to seeing him, but lets let him think that for now!

Invitations... going out soon! Definitely need to compile all my addresses! :D

Ahhhh... so glad to be sleeping back in my own bed.

So much to do and such little time. Oh my!

Its 1am and I'm still not asleep. WHY? I really wish I knew.

So... watched The Hills earlier tonight. Oh my gosh... I still can't believe Audrina. The OTHER Woman!! I mean... I know that Brody is incredibly gorgeous and all... but damn! She was sitting there trying to justify herself and her actions... WHATEVERRR! I used to think that she was so pretty, but now when I see her, I'm just like... BLAH. Jayde still looks like a dude with a few too many cosmetic surgeries to me. I don't care if she's Playmate of the Year... whatever... she could be Playmate of the Century and I'd still think she looked like a plastic doll gone wrong. I'm such a hater... I know.

So I follow Jayde (and many others) on Twitter, and right now, she's mad at something. I wonder if its Audrina again or if she and Brody just got into a fight. 43 minutes ago, she tweeted with "Shady shady people!!". 22 minutes ago, she tweeted, "I hate stupid shady puppets!!! Just be your self... Fake people". 4 minutes ago, she tweeted, "Shitty ass puppet people!! Be real for once and not fake!!!". 2 minutes ago, she said, "Bullshit bullshit bullshit". Now 10 seconds ago, she goes, "No one is worth this"!!! Eeeeep! What/who could she be so upset about?

Its amazing how these celebrities are so consistent with their tweets. I mean... I have no life and I still can't find the time to tweet as much as they do. Holy moly! I wonder if any of them would ever notice me and my replies to them. HAHAHA!!

I have yet to do laundry and pack for my California trip this week. Hmmm... procrastination should just be my first name already rather than my middle.

I wonder what time I'm actually going to fall asleep today.

And in case you are wondering... YES... I still have tissues up my nose. If you want a picture, let me know. :) Goodnight!

I've been BAD...

This is one of the reasons why I hate being sick. I fall out of routine and then I do things that I probably wouldn't do if I was well.

For the past four days, I have been doing nothing but eating, eating, eating. I figured that throwing up the first day of getting sick would make up for it, but it hasn't. I'm horrible. I know that I shouldn't be so obsessed... but my WEDDING day is just around the corner and I am still ogre status. My stomach sticks out more than my boobs... and its not a pretty sight. What makes it worse is that I've been menstrual and like most girls, all I want is chocolates, sweets, chocolates, and sweets. FUCK!!! And to rub salt into the wound, I haven't moved my body out of bed enough to burn even the calories from a stick of sugar free gum! This is depressing thinking about what I've done the past four days. If I could do it over, I'd do it differently. I would only have three pieces of my nephew's birthday cake rather than four. LOL!

I get to see Sam again in 20 days... TWENTY!! I'm so excited! I get butterflies at the thought of it. No matter how bad my day had been or how upset I am with something, I forget about most of it (if not all) whenever I get to talk to him. Sure, I naturally have poor memory, but you know what I mean! Its crazy how I still go ga ga over him like a little school girl! Eeeek! I know I'm such a dork, but I can't even explain how I feel. Even when I call him with the intention of being angry or upset with him for something, it all goes away once he starts talkin'. He's so freakin' adorable! I really am lucky... ahhhhhh!!! I love hearing his monotone voice. HAHA!

Heading down to California with my Parents in a few days. Not sure if I'm really looking forward to it because I know that I'll be spending most of the time running errands. I'm nervous for my Parents and Sam's to meet... but I know that they'd get along great because they're all great people. Don't know if I'm really looking forward to the relatives' wedding because to be honest... I don't really know them. I'm just looking forward to shopping with my nieces (gotta find their dresses for my wedding) and hanging out with them. Its amazing how grown up they all are... sort of scary, actually. My oldest nephew is 19 years old... he was born when I was only five! What I love though is that they still have the respect and call me "E-Thyda"... no matter where we are or who we're with. :D

Okay... going to bed and hoping that I wouldn't have any weird or scary dreams tonight. I hate when I have weird dreams like that... scares the shit outta me! Ahhhh!

Goodnight... sweet dreams of me! ;)


I had THE weirdest dream last night. I dreamt that I was PREGNANT and gave birth at 7 weeks and the baby was fully grown! WTF?! I don't know how to describe it... but it was the little things that creeped me out. I know for a fact that I'm not pregnant and I don't plan on getting pregnant for the next couple of years, at least. SO... this dream really creeped me out!

I spent three bucks on the lottery last night and didn't win jack sh*t. Sam goes, "its okay Baby... I'll pay you back". If I would have known he'd reimburse me for the lottery tickets, I would have spent $50 or something! LOL! I really need to win the lottery... I really, really do. If others can win, so can I... right? I hope so! If I win, I'll share something with everyone who wishes me luck! I'm serious!!

OH my gosh... going back to bed with a box of chocolates! I hate being sick... but I love using it as an excuse to just sleep and eat. LOL!

Totally trying my best to think positive. Its so beautiful out and I know that I will be okay enough to go running outside or maybe look at the garden, stand there and contemplate if I should try some gardening before I decide not to and go back in the house for some ice cream! LOL

I was reminiscing about the girls' trip to Vegas a couple years ago... best trip EVER!! If Cancun doesn't work out, we're going to find an alternative and wherever we may go, it will be a blast. I love being with carefree people who don't get their panties bunched in a knot or are really anal about things... that gets SO annoying. Especially love the fact that they don't do things to please others and are OKAY with just being themselves and living the moment. :)

I feel swollen.... for being in bed for so long. LOL... what to do now?
