Think a thunk with me

An amazing journey through an ordinary life

I opened this email to start an LJ update and as soon as I did, every thought in my mind disappeared and I now can't think of a thing to write. I guess I'll just ramble for a bit and see what pops up.

On Friday my niece turned 17!!!!!! I still can't believe that. She had her driver's test that morning. She passed! My sister had told me ahead of time that she didn't think Amanda would pass. But I knew she would. She's a good little driver. Sunday they had a family party for her and I rode down with my parents. It's a long ways, but worth it. I think Amanda loved her gifts from me. Yay! In fact she just posted a photo on Facebook and she's wearing the necklace and one of the shirts I gave her. That always makes me happy when I see she actually wears things I give her. Teenagers can be rather picky when it comes to fashion and I'm so... well, NOT. haha.

My sis and the kids had recently moved in with her new boyfriend. My folks had met him before, but Sunday was my first time meeting him. He seemed nice enough. His house is HUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE! I wouldn't call it a mansion, but I'd definitely call it a big-ass house! They have an acre and a half of land and he build such a pretty fenced in area just for the dogs my sister rescues! He enclosed off a separate room just for the cats that she rescues. AND he finished off the entire basement to add a full room for Amanda and a big TV area, bathroom and exercise room. (The basement alone is bigger than my entire house!) He has 3 kids of his own with his first wife, but they only visit on every other weekend. The house was beautiful. I'm jealous, but very happy for my sister and the kiddos that they have someone who is so good to them.

I recently found out that my sister's ex-husband (my nephew's dad) moved to Illinois of all places! My sister's ex (my niece's dad) and his wife actually came for the party on Sunday. I thought it was going to be weird, but it was actually cool to see him and talk to them both. It was a really nice day.

My new boss started yesterday. He's very nice. It'll be interesting to see what, if any, changes he makes around here. He's actually only temporary in this position so in 4 months I shall get a new boss again! eeeek! So confusing how all this rotating happens around here.

I have an annoying cold for over a week now. Sore throat, cough, chest congestion. I haven't really had much in the way of head congestion as compared to usual, so I'm happy about that, but the other symptoms are bad enough. The cough is killing me today! I've had fits where I cough nonstop for 10 minutes at a stretch! I'm drinking lots of tea and orange juice and soup... I'm going to float away from all the liquids. haha. I've tried Nyquil, Theraflu, Alka Seltzer Cold and none of those have helped a darn. Even the cough drops I've been constantly sucking on aren't doing a thing to soothe my throat and cough. Oh well... it's gotta go away sooner or later, right?

Yesterday it was over 80 degrees here! it was awful! My house last night felt like an oven. I hate the heat and even more so when it's only April! I so need to get out of the stupid house before summer hits. I can't deal with the thought of another summer stuck in that sweltering place!
