Follow Up on the Bed Sitch (as in situation)


I sent her an email. She sent one back. Here they are:

Hi Becky,

I just wanted to let you know that we are still holding the furniture for you. If I don’t hear back from you by tomorrow afternoon, I am going to repost it. Let me know!


I completely understand….I am sorry this is the circumstances we have found ourselves in. Please take care of you and your families needs first. That is the right thing to do under these circumstances. If I know anything either way, I will let you know.

Again, I apologize for this situation.


WTF? My new theory is that they spent all the money for the bed on the drugs that they are obviously doing. Any new theories?

My Poor Bestie


Here is an update from Whitney’s blog:

A lot has changed since my last update. Basically my flu results came back negative but this weekend I developed bad mouth sores. Fast forward to today and I am being admitted to the hospital. I am running a fever, having trouble eating and drinking and am in a lot of pain. The left side of my tongue is extremely swollen and I have sores everywhere!

The chemo drug Methotrexate that I was given last week destroys the mucus membranes around the body, including the mouth. And on top of that my immune system is compromised so I have no defense. Needless to say, horrible mouth sores are very common with this. They are in fact very surprised I hadn’t had mouth sores in the previous treatments.

So I will be heading over to Presbyterian St Lukes to receive IV fluids, IV antibiotics, and even a pain pump. My pain is so severe that I have a pain patch and have tried liquid Morphine and am still experiencing a lot of pain.

So I should be out in about 4-5 days and they don’t see this delaying my next treatment, thank the Lord. And I guess if I was to be hospitalized at least it won’t be the 3 week stay like last time.

Halloween – It’s So Much Better Now!


As soon as I graduated from high school, Halloween started going down the tubes for me. Gone were the days of Trick-or-Treating – I did this even as a senior with the disguise of taking my sister – and having fun. I then went to college where Halloween provided a lot of pressure. I now had to come up with either A) Awesome costumes that no one else thought of or B) Super slutty costumes that made my little size 4 (those days are LONG gone) college body look cute. I didn’t like it. I always felt bad when people would tell me how much fun they had and how much they loved Halloween and how they couldn’t wait for the parties. I don’t mind those people, in fact, I am glad they could have awesome nights. I just wasn’t in to it, and unfortunately, I still am not. Finally towards the end of college and into my “adult” life, I would go over to my parents and help them hand out candy, and then I moved into my own house and could give out the big candy bars and watch the sheer joy on kid’s faces when they get the big Snickers or Butterfinger. That will always be my favorite part of Halloween.


This little guy was born!

Now I have a whole new purpose – Making sure that Cameron has the best Halloween every year! Last year we started a new little tradition and we hope it can go through the years. We had our friends and family over on Halloween for Chicken Noodle Soup and Chili. Anyone could come and eat and bring their kids and let them trick-or-treat around the neighborhood or come over after trick-or-treating. We had a blast. Not a crazy drink-to-much party, just a fun little party for families, their kids and whoever else felt like I usually did on Halloween. We also had some people come, who then later on in the night went out on the town!

We are doing it again this year with a new added twist! My Mom, Rian and my Aunt Marcella are going to have a chili cook-off! Hopefully we can get a few more entries into the competition, but if not, it is still going to be a heated battle. My Aunt keeps telling Rian that he is going to cry like a little girl. Everyone should come just to see that!

Wait to see updated pictures of this year’s Halloween and what sweet little Cameron is going to be for Halloween this year!

I am Pissed, Rian is Not



We decided we never totally liked our bedroom furniture, so we decided to sell it on First Class. First Class is the school district’s intranet. They have a For Sale, Wanted, For Rent, etc section that you can post things to, or shop around. I posted our furniture for a SCREAMING deal two weeks ago. I got about 5 hits, one big one. A lady (about 35-40) and her boyfriend came to look. They are moving in together and wanted to get new furniture. A few days later, they send me an email that says they will take it. She calls me this Wednesday and says they have rented a truck and will be by on Sunday to pick it all up between 1 and 2.

Yesterday, Rian and I get up, take apart all of the furniture, move it downstairs and clean it all so that it is nice, new and easy for the new owners. This process takes us about an hour and a half. It is about 2 o’clock and they aren’t there yet, I have a headache, Rian is watching the Broncos. I inadvertently snooze during the game. Wake up and it is 3:30, they still aren’t there! So I get frustrated and decide to call her and see what’s up. (First, I check my school email to make sure she didn’t email me). I call her, this is what I say and what she says back:

Me: Hi this is Jenn and I was wondering if you are still coming for the furniture today?
She: Well Jenn, I wish I knew myself. I know that sounds vague but I have no idea what is going on right now and as soon as I find out I will let you know. Again, sorry that is so vague.
Me: So…..
She: So I will let you know as soon as I find out anything.
Me: (In a tone that is a little shocked and kind of pissed) Alright, well I guess, let me know.
She: Okay bye.

So now what do I do? Do I repost the bed? Do I call or email her? Another side note, I thought she would have called me or emailed me by now 12:23pm on Monday (that is right, my students are taking a test while I blog).

I was REALLY pissed yesterday. I thought it was really rude that she didn’t even bother to call. At least call and make up a lie why you can’t come.

She: Sorry we can’t make it today, there were no trucks or my baby is sick or I am sick or whatever.

Rian was not even mad. He said he thought it was stupid how she was acting, but oh well.

Now, I have all of my furniture sitting in my living and dining room all taken apart. The crappy thing is, what if I want to post it again, it won’t look as pretty sitting in a big pile in my living room as it did all put together and clean in my bedroom.

Readers: Why do you think this lady bailed? Here is what I think: Her boyfriend cheated on her and she walked in on him and now they don’t need the bedroom set because they aren’t moving in together.
