Topsy-Turvy Tuesday

Today was just one of those days. I felt really weird when I woke up this morning, but I of course thought it was because I actually went to bed early for a change. I hit snooze a few times even though I didn't need it, I just didn't feel like getting out of bed! I eventually got up, ate my cereal, read and watched the news headlines, and went on to leave for Tahlequah. On the way down there, I felt sick and just plain tired all of a sudden so I decided to skip my afternoon class since I knew the assignment anyway. So (yes, I am aware that I tend to ramble until I get to the point of the story!) it was a good thing I had planned to skip class or else I would have been up a creek without a paddle! My friend Jessica and I had parked next to each other, so as we were leaving, the truck wouldn't start! I actually didn't panic for once. Jessica told me to call campus police and they would come jump start the battery so I called them..the guy that actually came was a jerk. It wouldn't do anything so he was like I can't do anything for you except tell you to call a tow truck, and I'm not a mechanic but it sounds like it is the starter. Well I immediately think..oh great. Starters + Tow Trucks are expensive! Well I called my grandpa to see what he might think it is. I always go to my grandpa...he knows everything in my book! =) Well him and my grandma came up there so in the meantime I just waited at Jessica's place until they got there. We ended up going to an auto part store, a starter was going to be $179.00 but we didn't even know for sure if it was the starter, so luckily they employees at the store knew a mechanic that would actually go up to the campus and tell me for sure what was wrong with it. I kid you not..he showed up and popped that hood up and twisted a knob on the battery and told me to start it up! It was so easy! the positive knob had came loose, I didn't need a starter afterall! Praise the Lord! I only had to end up paying $20 for the mechanic. By then, I think my grandparents and I were about to pass out because we had been outside forever it seemed. We went and ate at Town Branch then we headed our different ways. I went back to Tulsa, and they went back to The Fort. Oh and while this was going on today..Eli was asleep and not answering my phone calls! Even though it was kinda of a crappy situation, I'm glad I got to see my Grandmommy Mae & PaPaw Tommy! (even though I'm going to The Fort this weekend..oh well!) Anyways today has worn me out..plus I'm sunburned from waiting outside all afternoon! Just call me Rudolph!! =)

I think I'm going to go to bed early again tonight..after I pick up the kitchen. blah!

Yesterday was a good day though, Monday & Tuesdays are usually pretty good days because Eli is off so we can hang out and do different things around town. After I got home from school I talked him into going to Bass Pro Shop to look around. Its my belief that you dont have to buy something there..its fun to just go look! We ended up buying some old fashion hard candy and he bought me a cool keychain with my initals on it! We also went to PetCo and bought our Gracie Boo Boo a bed since she is obsessed with laying on our pillows..so now she has her own. I also bought some iron on letters tonight so dress up her bed a lil bit. Its not pink like I wanted.

Well thats it for today.

Garage Sale Finds & Lazy Days

I think my life is a little too boring to update everyday, so we'll see how it goes with blogging every other day! Yesterday Eli and I slept in for once and got a late start on garage sales, but we left the house at 10am and was still able to get some bargains! For weeks now, we have been looking for a computer monitor because Eli's went out. The one he wants is pretty expensive in our book, so for the time being he has just been looking for a used one to get him by. Well we havent had any luck at all when we get going at 6am, but what do ya know..we happen to find one for $5 when get a late start! Crazy! We also managed to find a big mirror to go over our couch. I have been wanting one for awhile, so maybe it was my lucky day after all! It was only $6 and Eli said I probably wouldnt find one like this one and for this price so we got it! He's going to sand it down and I'm going to try my hand at painting it. It will be interesting to see how it turns out! I also found a pink handbag for a whole dollar! It was a must! Also, the absolute cherry on top to my garage sale finds yesterday was....ST. ELMO'S FIRE ON DVD! That is one of my favorite movies..I just had it on VHS until the VCR eventually ate the poor thing! I havent been able to find it on DVD though..I was so excited, I still am actually! Since we were out driving around and by this time starving we ended up near the casino, so we decided to eat there at the Wild Potato..it was really good, they had a chocolate fondue! I had been out to the casino last weekend for my weekend class on Casino Issues. It was an interesting class, but more on that later! Since I had already been out there and Eli hadnt, so it was fun to just walk around and look at everything since it is in the process of being Hard Rock Hotel. Eli stuck a dollar in a quarter machine just for the hell of it and he won $10! By the time we got home it was going on late afternoon and Eli had to be at work at 9 so we just crashed and took an afternoon nap. I'm still not used to him working overnights...9pm to 6am! But he must love me if hes willing to go garage saleing with me when he gets home from work =)

This morning we went to Golden Corral to eat breakfast, it was a nice surprise. I usually wake up at 630 when Eli gets home but he woke up me at 730 so I got to sleep in a little bit...kind of threw my day off a bit but its okay! Between yesterday and this morning he has been exhausted so he is still asleep, and Im procrastinating. I should be doing my homework, I have a reading test and a written assignment due by 10pm tonight! I need Eli's help with the written assignment, Im computer illiterate when it comes to some programs so I will have to do that when he wakes up. So anyways I should be reading 2 chapters of American History Pre-Civil War but instead Ive managed to turn on the dishwasher, do 2 loads of laundry, take a nap, and bake brownies for tonight, oh and watch Walk the Line!

I have just been so lazy today. I need energy energy energy!

I'm not sure what else to blog about. I dont think anyone reads this except me. If someone else does read this, they should at least follow me! lol

Thats all for today I suppose. I just took the brownies out of the oven..I have to let the cool before I can frost them. I am inpatient when it comes to baking. I hate the cooling process! lol

Well I am off to study...blah.

I finally did it..

Well I've decided to make a blog after all! For awhile now, I have been reading numerous blogs anonymously. They have made me laugh, cry, and think "oh, I definitely know how you feel or you're not the only one!" Now I can actually comment everyone! I hope that I can make some new friends in this great world of blogging! I will probably be playing around with this for awhile, so if you are reading this..please bear with me!

I should probably be polite and introduce myself:

I'm Bailey and I am 19 years old. I hail from the great city of Fort Smith, Arkansas; but I currently live in Tulsa, Oklahoma. I am a college student at Northeastern State University and I am also a Social Work major. I have a passion for helping people and volunteering. I hope to one day work with the Ronald McDonald house at St. Francis Hospital here in Tulsa. I absolutely love NSU and I think it was one of the greatest decisions I've made. My mom is my best friend, and I was completely terrified of leaving her, but I'm pulling through better than I thought I would..most days anyway! lol I have been with my fiance, Eli for 5 years this October. Some people think that we are "living in sin" because we live together but we aren't married yet. Most people are supportive though, and that's what counts. We lived in Tahlequah last year while I attended NSU, but this past May Eli got a better paying job so we decided to move up here and I will be commuting twice a week in the fall. So far we are enjoying Tulsa, its bigger than Fort Smith, and definitely bigger than Tahlequah! I miss being able to go to the river at a moments notice with friends and the quiet college town life. I like to think everything happens for a reason so for now I'm just going to buckle up and see where this journey takes me with Eli and our cocker spaniel Gracie! =)

I will post pictures later, after I learn how to work all of this blogging stuff! lol Hope I didn't bore anyone!
