It's been a loooonnnggg time...... [04 Jan 2007|01:59am]
[ mood | sleepy ]

I can't believe how long it's been already. Happy New Year to all! I have been spending most of my time at my site and at MySpace. Sooooo much has happened since I last have posted. Well, I'm in school now. This spring semester coming up will be my 3rd semester in a row since I've been there. I got into the honors program and I currently have a overall GPA of 3.33..yay! Big difference since I was in school when I was like 20!

Jose promoted to P2 (Police Officer 2) so no longer a rookie! And it also means a bigger paycheck..so that's always nice. It's been a year and 2 months since I moved to Southern CA. I like it...but I also miss the Bay Area. But I sooooo love having our own place. Nothing can replace that!!

I'm sooooo sleepy...but I just wanted to do a quick update since I haven't logged on here since God knows when.....goodnight all!!

School :) [19 Apr 2006|06:40pm]
[ mood | excited ]

I went ahead and registered at Fullerton College. I'm so excited!! So I got accepted for the Summer and/or Fall 2006. This is gonna be a whole different world for me that I haven't experienced in almost 10 years. It's kinda scary but exciting all at the same time. They will be mailing me my appt. time to actually sign up for classes. I need to take the assesment test cuz I'm a Returning (practically New) Student.

[ mood | happy ]

I've been feeling so good these last couple of days. I feel....what's the word....lighter. My sleeping is back to normal, I go to bed between 10-11pm and wake up at 7ish. Today was my dr. appt. and I told her I didnt need any of her sleeping aids. She was so happy to hear that!! Even Jose has noticed a difference in my mood. He says I seem happier. And I am.

We got a new car...well used but new. We got a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. Its silver and so pretty. Jose uses that to put his gear in there. And now I have the Civic.

I've been getting around better around L.A. On Thursday, my friend Lisette wants me to meet her at the bowling alley cuz she's gonna be babysitting her cousin's daughter and her little friend. From there, we'll get something to eat. So this will be good cuz the more I drive here, the better I'll start to get used to the area.

Easter Sunday went great! We went to church service in the morning, then we went to JOse's uncle's bbq and from there we went to Jose's other uncle's parents house for EAster dinner and a egg hunt for the kids. So that was fun.

So anyways, just wanted to give you all an idea of what's been going on with me. Life is going good right now I hope all of you are doing good too.

Yay! [06 Mar 2006|03:23am]
[ mood | awake ]

Well, I changed my layout and I like this one alot. The Pooh one that I had was cute but it was definitley time for a change! It's hard to find cute LJ layouts. This is the first and only cute one I found.

Yay! Jose has the next 4 days off in a row! So I'm happy about that! As usual, I can't sleep right now. I hate this...*sigh*

Finally.... [09 Jun 2005|08:16am]
[ mood | awake ]

Finally, our washing machine is getting fixed after 4 weeks of being down! My whole family has had to go to a laundry place and I've been lucky (this is where having a whole bunch of undies, socks, shirts and jeans turns out to be a very convenient thing!).  I've never been to one of those laundry places (except when I was small and I used to go with my mom) but all I did was run around the place!  But as an adult, never.  So finally.

Right now, our carpet downstairs is being cleaned.  So any minute, we'll hear the loud roar of the vacuum thingie going off. Thank goodness, my dad is downstairs taking care of that. 

Why am I up this early on my vacation?  I woke up at 7:30 am and I'm still up.  Ahh, something about waking up early during the week *there goes the loud ass vacuum...damn, its a lot louder than I thought!!  And why is it right outside my room??* and not having to worry about getting ready for work. 

Ok, off to watch one of those early morning shows....

Today [04 Jun 2005|08:07pm]
[ mood | content ]

Today, I went to Great America. It was fun. I haven't been there in like 3 years. We were only there for 4 hours, the weather was perfect. But with a regular admission price, you can get the WOW card where you can use it to come back the rest of the summer. The rides were fun. Sometimes I forget that I scream on some of these rides, normally my sister is a hard-core ride screamer, not me. So I may go back during my vacation that starts this Monday.
So I'm gonna go watch my CSI Season 1 dvd that I got from Netflix today. I love that show.

Blah Blah [30 Apr 2005|03:43pm]
[ mood | bored ]

Jose finally got his last paycheck from his job. They said they mailed out Tuesday (its only coming from Hayward), so it should have been here on Wednesday. It barely got here today. What did the postmark say? April 29th! The nerve. So I went in and deposited that and got myself a foot long Subway sandwhich. Mmmmm, I love Subway.

*Sigh* I miss Jose soooo much. I survived the first week without him. We talk everyday though. And he says he thinks of me everyday (he better, I'm only his wife! lol) And this Monday, is the first day of the academy. Last Wednesday, was the orientation. He had to buy all his uniforms. It was expensive too. But they go through the LAPD Credit Union at a very, very low percentage.

I booked my flight to go to L.A for the end of May. I can't wait to see my husband!! I'm gonna attack him when I see him!

Well, He Left [24 Apr 2005|08:37am]
[ mood | sad ]

Jose left this morning at 7:40 am.  It was so hard.  When he first woke up, he just held me for a while and said, "I can hold you like this forever".  We just didn't want the clock to move!  He finally got up to shower and stuff.  And I helped him pack the rest of his stuff into the car.  He said bye to my mom, dad and sister while they were still in bed.  My sister goes, "Good luck!  And dont come back too skinny!"  lol  And finally, we hugged for days and I just cried and he left.  My dad actually got up and gave him a big hug and told him good luck.  So my husband is on his way to L.A. right now.  I prayed for him last night and asked God to keep him safe and to give him the strength (mentally and physically) while he's being challenged at the academy.  And also to help me be strong while he's gone.  I have to keep reminding myself that this is a good, positive thing for us.  Girls, please keep us in your prayers.  :)

It's Official!!!! [19 Apr 2005|12:11am]
[ mood | ecstatic ]

My husband starts the LAPD Academy on May 2nd!!!!!!!!  He received the letter today.  He leaves already this weekend (its 6 hours away)!      Training is for 28 weeks (7 months).  So by like 5 months, we should know if he graduates.  So around that time, I should be moving to L.A.  Meanwhile, I'll stay up here.  As some of you may know,  this is what we were waiting for.  I can't believe it's finally happening!!!

You Are 30 Years Old


Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

Thats about right. I'm 29, gonna be 30 in December.

Nothing Much Goin On.... [06 Mar 2005|12:24am]
[ mood | content ]

I bought this adorable ass purse off of Guess.com with the matching wallet. But when I got it, it was huge. The style was adorable, but it was just too big. It would overpower my arm. So I had to return it. Oh well.

Lets see, what else has been going on.....we made our $100 bonus at work for the month. So that was a nice little addition to the paycheck. How this month is set up and how Jose and I get paid, we each get paid every other week...so we get a paycheck coming into our household a week. Not bad.

We reserved a hotel for next weekend, in the area, just to get away. We actually can't wait. We're gonna try to make it a romantic weekend. So, we'll see.
Ok, sorry I have nothing exciting to share but I just wanted to update...

Stubborn Ass [05 Feb 2005|11:25am]
[ mood | restless ]

Even though Jose is sick, he still insisted on going to the gym, knowing perfectly well its not good to work out when your sick. That's what I get when I married a stubborn Capricorn. I'm sure he thinks that of me all the time too.

We got a message on our machine from the Photo people that even though we had an appt. to see our pictures tomorrow, we can go in today from 3-6. I'm excited. I hope they came out decent. So...I don't know if we're getting our pictures today or are we just picking what poses we want and then we'll get them later. I hope we get them today. I'll post them up when I get them...hopefully that will be today. So after Jose gets back from the gym, we'll go.

*Sigh* [02 Feb 2005|07:32pm]
[ mood | mellow ]

What is up with me going to bed at a decent time (11:30) and I still wake up hella tired. I wait till the very last minute to get up. And if I decide to do my hair and make up, I wake up an extra 10 min. early....lol. I have never been a morning person and I will never be a morning person. I don't know how I'll cope when we have a kid. I hear that you basically have to wave all your sleep goodbye. Can't wait.

After Jose gets back from the gym, we're going to Baker's Square since our favorite mexican restaurant only closes at 9. Baker Square has never let us down :)

Tomorrow, one of the regional managers is coming to "audit" us. Basically to see if the store looks good, if we know our shit, and just basically grade us. She's such a bitch and even the boss can't stand her. Our new boss started owning the store in July. So our store got awarded the Silver Award for the great sales for last year. And when she handed it to him, she goes, "This award is really for Mike and Larry (the previous owners)." Ugghh!!! So my boss goes, "Well, I'll just cut it in half and give the other half to Mike and Larry." lol

I gotta go pay the bills now...bye.

Changed the Look [25 Jan 2005|07:04pm]
[ mood | tired ]

So I went ahead and changed the look of my journal a bit. I wanted some girly pastel colors. So I changed it to this.

Jose says that one of his friends got a call from the detective thats doing the background on him. So he asked her the same questions I was asked. So that's good. I soooo hope he gets in! We've waited long enough for this opportunity.

Already theres owners from the UPS Store in L.A that want me to work for them. A guy came to talk to me today about that. But I don't know if I want to continue in this business any longer. Once I'm out of this store, that's it for me. I want to go back to school and work on getting my psychology degree.

Damn, I just remembered I forgot my cell at work. Oh well, if it rings, my workers will be hearing some Destiny's Child coming from my box :)

I can't wait, tomorrow is the new season of The Newlyweds. I loooovvvee that show. I think Jessica is so cute! And so talented too.

Alrighty, I'm still in my work clothes. I gotta change out of them.

Finally.... [23 Jan 2005|10:41pm]
[ mood | bored ]


So we made an appt. to take one of those "old time" pictures on Sunday, the 30th.  Finally, this is our first picture since our wedding 2 years ago.  But they should turn out cute.  So I'm kinda excited about that.

Today was my brother's 16th birthday....I can't believe it.  I still remember taking him to the mall in is stroller and people thinking he was my kid cuz we look so much alike.  So that means I would have had him at 13....lol.  He has this deep ass voice now and he's sooo cute. 

I don't want to go back to work tomorrow.  I hate Mondays.  It just becomes this big countdown for the weekend.  *sigh*

Have you guys seen this Stop Ashlee Simpson online petition?  I don't know how legal it is but hell, I signed it anyways.  I seen that a quite a bit of people signed it too.  Geesh.  I'm glad to know that I'm not the only one that doesn't like her.

Alrighty, I'm tired...I'm going to bed.

Man! [15 Jan 2005|11:15pm]
[ mood | full ]

I'm still really stuffed right now. We got back from Olive Garden about an hour and a half ago and I'm still stuffed. Everything was so good. I always enjoy going there.

Well, I got tired of my long, no-style hair. So on Monday, I went ahead and cut 6 1/2 half inches off. Yes, I cut it off. So now it's right on my shoulders. I like it. My hair dries quicker now and it just looks more stylish. Whenever I have long hair, I always feel like a look like a teeny-bopper. With shorter hair, I feel my age. I'll have to take a picture soon.
I'm soooo thirsty right now...mmm, root beer sounds good right now!

Good Days : ) [11 Jan 2005|05:49pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

Well, as you all know, I was out of work for 3 weeks and didn't get paid for it. So Michelle told me that I was eligible for short-term disability. I went to the EDD site and it said that if Ive been out sick for 8 consecutive days and not getting paid, I'm eligible for disability (along with some other prerequisites). So I got my dr. notes and verifications, filled out the form online and took it to Kaiser on Dec. 21st. They said it was going to take 10-14 business days for it to go through. Well, I called on Monday to see if Kaiser had sent in my paperwork to the state and not sitting around on a desk somewhere. They said they barely sent it out on Dec. 30th!!! But in Monday's mail, my check came in! I was so happy. I definitley got more than I thought I would get. So yay!

And today, I get my State Farm insurance for policy both of our cars. The Toyota Celica went down $40...woohoo! Nothing better than getting a notice like that. So I've been doing pretty good, I'm back at work and back to health again.

Jose and I went to L.A this past weekend. He passed his physical agility test. Next they're gonna notify him of when he can take the psychological test. So far everything's going on schedule for him to get in the academy in March. I've been praying for this to finally happen to us.

Ok, that's basically it. Bye everyone!

Happy 4th of July [04 Jul 2004|11:13pm]
[ mood | relaxed ]

Happy 4th, everyone! Jose ended up staying an extra day in Ukiah. He'll get payed extra, so that's cool. I didn't do much today. The neighborhood was nice and quiet today (during the day) cuz everyone is gone for the weekend. Yay : ) Anyways, I got myself another purse. Yes, I'm a purse freak...but this one I fell in love with the moment I saw it in the Dooney and Bourke catalog. I'll be getting the matching wallet tomorrow. I figured I splurge a little since I think I deserve it from the stress I've been under with my job and the major change we just went through.

So that dumb girl finally sent payment for the DKNY jeans I had up for auction on Ebay....after almost 1 month after the auction ended! It's a pending Paypal e-check though, so I need for it to clear in a couple of days before I send the jeans obviously. It took me to file Non-Paying Buyer alert to Ebay and to leave a negative feedback for her to freakin pay too. No more selling to people with 0 feedback. Sorry, she messed it up for all the Newbies.

Ok, I guess that's all....bye everyone.

A weekend in Ukiah [13 Jun 2004|08:25pm]
[ mood | amused ]

We just got back from Ukiah and Jose's parents got a new house. 3 bedroom, 3 bathrooms, 2 living rooms, a bar, a big ass yard with a big covered deck with a built-in sink, bbq, cabinets. A laundry room. It's beautiful. Alot better where they were at. Especially with 4 kids and a dog. I'm so happy for them. Best thing, it's all free cuz Jose's dad is manager at the vineyard ranch there. He even has his own little gas pump right next to the house for his company truck. You cannot get any better than that! It's for all the management people on that ranch. It's so quiet there too...you come out and it's just green with mountains right across from you. I kept coming out and w/ a soda in my hand and just taking it in. It's so pretty. I am city folk after all and I don't see that everyday. So ya, they get to live there indefinitly. His bosses love him and he's not quitting his job anytime soon.
