So Bill and I made it to Chatta con in one piece...so to say...
Aparently my "The Sun is Trying to Kill Me" tee made an impression at the Tennesse welcome center. ^__^ V sweet!

For those that care to know, my blood test went well. Still too high, but better! I was down to 134 from 149 three months ago. 18lbs down. Just got to keep up the good work and take a double dose of my gluc. We're hoping that will do the trick. Dr. Herren offered my some prescription diet pills, but I don't want them. I'm feeling good about my progress on my own.

So things are going really well. Keep y'all informed!

Better now.
I got a new car stereo and it rocks.
I have tomorrow off work (but have to go to the doctor for blood work and "that" exam)

Life's not to bad...

I...I'm not sure how to feel beyond the anger.

Some one stole the stereo out of my car!!!!!

Bill and I went to my parents' for Aaron and Lamanda's birthday party. After dinner, someone noticed that my car door was open. Gene told me Dad needed to see me outside. I went out and my WHOLE stereo was GONE! Whoever had time to neatly remove the WHOLE UNIT out of my dash...and no one saw ANYTHING!!!
Mom and Lamanda have both recently had the face plates removed from their radios, but whoever took my WHOLE UNIT!!! *roars with anger*

Now I have to shell out the money for a new system. Yeah I'll likely get something better, but it's the...I just shouldn't have to....

Yeah I've been playing the "atleast they didn't..." game, but it's starting to lose it's calming effect...quickly...

Morning after... [20 Aug 2008|06:30am]
[ mood | melancholy ]
[ music | Life is a Boat- Bleach OST ]

We buried Bill's mom yesterday. The grave side service was nice (though I was lost, not being Catholic and all). The Gravesite over in Oakland is beautiful. And other than almost passing out and having to be helped back to my car (and then really passing out there) it was a lovely day.
and yet this morning I feel no better. Maybe cuz I'm feeling for Sakka, who's mom passed on yesterday. Maybe it was the fact that I awoke to Bill clinging to me and having to leave him to go back to work today. I don't wanna go to work. I'm still a teary mess.
It's easy to hold my composure when I'm with Bill, but alone? I cry rivers. That's one of the reasons it's so hard to go to work. Everyone in the office has been very understanding, but Monday, I thought I was going to reach thru the phone and punch someone. Gotta watch the temper...
anyway, back to the saltmines...

[ mood | anxious ]

Maybe I'm just being weird...But then I should start at the beginning.

For those who haven't heard, I didn't get the "promotion". Not to worry ^_^ that's not the drama here. My co-worker Melissa got the new Systems Maintenance Supervisor position. Basically, they merged her current job with what had been Debbie's. I know she deserves it and it now makes her my boss! I really couldn't be happier. I don't truly think I was ready to be a supervisor. Maybe one day. I'm good where I am right now.

And I guess that makes the transition to what happened today. As I said, I'm good where I am. That includes the location of my office.

When I went to lunch today, Karen greeted me with a "So I hear you’re moving to an office and getting an office-mate." *jawdrop* No one had said anything to me yet. And no one has said anything official yet...

I've been making excuses all day about why I don't what this to happen. "I don't like sunlight much" "I don't want to have to move all my stuff." "Won't that be too far from all our files?" and so on and so on...

But I think it all boils down to I don't want to share an office. I like having my own space. I am the office hermit after all...*sigh* If it comes to be, it comes to be and I'll deal. I don't want this move, but I don't think it's my decision.

If Melissa hasn't said anything by tomorrow, I'm gonna talk to her and find out for sure what's going on. No matter, I have a feeling it'll all go down next Friday. Office clean up day. We'll all know soon...

Well that's that. I knew this was coming.
As Bill said, Debbie's office must have been one of my barriers. That came down.
I came to work this morning to find it cleaned out. Her name plate was still up, but that was it.
Then I was flooded with e-mails concerning my well being. I'm glad they all care...
And then the scene in Battlestar...

I broke. *sob*

...now we truly mourn...

One battle over [12 May 2008|09:52pm]
[ mood | numb ]

Debbie passed away yesterday...no easy way to put it.
I've lost a boss and a friend.
The world has lost a kind heart and a gentle soul.

I don't think it's really hit me yet. I mean her office still looks like she'll be back. Her sweater is still on the chair. Her pictures are still up. Her clock still ticking away. There are still faxes coming in adressed to her...

*deep breath* It just doesn't feel real.

The cancer was pretty far addvinced...and she reacted badly to the chemo.

I'm...dealing right now. I think we all are.

Hope to go see her next week...

Walking Week 1 [05 May 2008|06:19am]
[ mood | awake ]

So yesterday Went walking at Shorty Howell park with [info]chimerawinds and the adorable Elora. Wonderful conversation and we did, if not a full, close to 3 miles! ^__^ avery good start I think. I really needed to get out and do something and it's just so much easier with a buddy. We even went out to Star bucks afterword! I had a Green Tea Frapachino, Holly had some coffee, and Elora ate a whole Strawberry Banana Parfey! So cute with all that pink around her mouth! ^__^

Bill didn't come with us, cuz he'd been at work all day and he needs new walking shoes...apparently so do I. Got home and peeled off my socks to reveal large blisters on the underside of both feet. Right under the second toe on each...ouch...but I know I'm prone to them. I really should have expected it. especally when that part started bothering me on the walk. My fault. I'll have better footwear by the next walk.

The disappointing part of the night was that Bill decided to wait on me for diner. I TOLD him not to. In fact I was expecting him to have fixed the hotdogs so I could grab one or two when I got in. Instead he waited. I didn't get in till almost 9...men sometimes...

So I ended up making a Taco Bell run. I really wasn't that hungry when I got in and he wouldn't fix a dinner if I wasn't going to eat. We actually had our version of a fight over it, but that ended with me getting tacos. Well and a bean burrito for me. And someone over there was onion happy last night too. >.< and I had said NO onions on my burrito. Don't like raw onion much...

Anyway, that was last night.

Bl-ah-ging [14 Apr 2008|06:19am]
[ mood | blah ]

I keep forgeting just how free I am to speak here. It's still a rather new concept to me.
I've decided not to let anyone outside my circle of friends read this. I know I have my Blurty where I can rant and rave (and after re-read it the other day there is a LOT of raving over there, oi) but having a place where I can say what I want with out fear of backlash? yeah...

So as I said in my last post, I consider my self a pagan. But I guess I'm still sort of in the closet. I still go to church with my family most sundays. Don't get me wrong. It's not like I find it painful or anything (well most of the time). I'm actually quite well versed in the Bible. I even worked at a Bible store till about a year ago! My only thing is, I feel forced to go. Wednesday nights in the nursery are my pleasure, but Sundays having to sit through services and class...*sigh* I don't think it was just my sleeping disorder making me nod off...

Well anyway, I just wanted to say something here. I feel I can be way too quiet sometimes and I'm working to change that.

My Boss (x-posted fromLJ) [10 Apr 2008|05:51pm]
[ mood | worried ]

Well as some of have heard, My Boss has been out of work for a while due to medical concerns. It started with a pain in her leg that found was cause by a blood clot. They had her go on bed rest and started treating the clot, but she kept getting worse. More clots were found or formed. Finally her doctor decided they needed to do more tests and look further at the cause.

Tuesday, we found out she was in the hospital under going tests. Not a good sign, but we all believed that was what she needed.

Today at work we found out the cause. My best friend, at work, has Ovarian Cancer.
We don't know how far it's progressed yet, but it's not good.

Sharon says her spirits are really down. I've already tried once to call her, but I think I'm just going to have to go down to Northside and see her!

Any prayers or good vibes, or whatever are GREATLY needed and appreciated right now...for both her and her son.

Better Intro [30 Mar 2008|09:33pm]
[ mood | peaceful ]
[ music | Watching Iron Chef ]

So being in a new place, with new people, I feel that maybe I should give a better intro about myself. Not that I'm that interesting a person... Well here goes...

My Name is Alisha Diane, know to many in the anime and convention world as Iruka.

I'm a 27 year-old Accounts Receivable clerk for The Quikcrete Co. A job I love very much. It's stressful and nerve racking sometimes, but I love what I do. 2 years and going strong.

I live with my wonderful boyfriend of 3 years, Bill. My parents aren't happy about this, but after almost 2 years, I think they're learning to live with it.

Religiously, I'd call myself a Pagan. I was brought up Church of Christ, but that never really... well, there were good things, but I've found my own path. I'm not Wiccin, but I do find good things in there teachings. If I have to define, I'd call myself a Hearth-Witch.
I'm also very interested in things of the Paranormal. Since I was little, I've had a draw to spirits and the oft unseen.

I'm also a amateur writer, artist, and graphic designer. I've actually made or edited most, if not all my own icons. I like messing with stuff and seeing what I can make. (links and stuff found on my profile)

I love anime, sci-fi, and fantasy. Sometimes too much! ...yeah I'm a geek...lol

That's all I can really think to say right now. Wanna know something else? Just ask! ^___^

Oh man...I just got on for a minute and realized It's Monday and I haven't written anything in here...all I can say is blame the fever

Yes I said fever...I am officially running a 100.8F fever and have been since last night. Work was the pits yesterday cuz I think I might have had a fever then, but not known it! At least that's how I explain the Hot AND Cold flashes I had to endure standing at that table! I nearly yakked in the yogurt!

I have taken it easy today though...I only got out ti go to the library for Manga and such...ended up getting dragged to the grocery store, but we kept that short.

Well I think I best go lay back down...my head is pounding and I've got the chills *grabs fleece throw blanket*


Fortune Cookie: The curent year will bring you much happiness.
