That is if you consider going everywhere in about 3 and a half hours interesting. I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow at 4:30, that’s a 6 month check-up thing, that I should only have to go to once a year. Before that, my friend, her boyfriend, and I are going grocery shopping. Yep, we absolutely must do this tomorrow, for no other reason that her boyfriend might have to go to jail to serve his time for his eluding charges on Friday. Before we go grocery shopping though, I’ll be going to drop off my rent check, and pick up my prescriptions. Then we’ll come home, and it depends on how long it took to do all 3 of those things, but I may or may not have that much time between then and the time I have to leave for the doctor. On top of that, mom and I might go to Wal-Mart after the doctor, but I’m not really sure about that one yet. This will all happen after my friend gets off work, at around 1 or 1:30. I ended up geting the rest of my sister’s baby gifts today, the landlord came up with a really big box from USPS. Now I just need to wrap them and I’ll be all ready for my sister’s baby shower. Her and I are going to lunch next week, just because I thought we should do something together before the baby comes.

I got an email this morning from GoDaddy that said they deleted my domain from my account. When I look it up in whois however, it says it’s owned by GoDaddy and that it expires on 1/15/2013. I don’t really understand why it says that, but it does. It’s possible that they sent the email today to give me a day or 2 to respond, but I’m not going to, unless they don’t delete my domain that is. Today was the first day we got to pray in the healing rooms. We’re still in training, because we can’t exactly lead, (I don’t want to lead anyway,) but we’re allowed to pray. The virus scan that I performed Yesterday morning at 3 AM came out clean, although it took an hour and a half to finish, why it was being so slow, I’m not sure. Speaking of viruses, I got a text message from mom that said that if I got an email from her with letters and numbers as the subject not to open it, because my sister called her and told her it was a virus. UH… and she was the one lecturing me about passwords last week, telling me I should make some passwords the same. yeah… good one, mom!
Sunday, February 26, 2012
OK, first of all, I have no flippin idea why I’m up at 3:20 in the morning but I am! I ran out of the stuff I was taking for sleep a couple days ago and haven’t really had time to go get more yet, so I thought this might be a good time to wean myself off of it. Yeah… right! Well if your idea of fun is staying up for nearly 24 hours on a random Saturday night/Sunday morning for no particular reason, then go right ahead! I did sleep for about 3 hours, but now I’m all like hey, let’s get up and perform virus scans at 3:25 in the morning! As to why I’m performing a virus scan it’s kind of a long story, things were acting a bit out of sorts yesterday and I wanted to make absolutely sure it isn’t a virus, although I’m fairly sure it isn’t. Now the issue of whether to count this for blog 365 or not… which I think I’m going to because it’s technically Sunday morning so yeah.

I had fun at the potluck today. I called the lady who took me, and she said she’d be here in 5 minutes. I ended up running out forgetting everything I was supposed to bring, and I do mean everything! 5 minutes didn’t exactly mean 5 minutes either, she was here about 10 minutes later. We didn’t do much while we were there, just eat, talk and pray.
Friday, February 24, 2012
Tomorrow, I have the potluck for healing rooms. It was supposed to be at 1, but they decided to change it to 12 for some reason. The brownyes are all ready for me to just grab them and leave tomorrow afternoon. The lady who’s taking me called me this afternoon, and asked me if she could pick me up an hour early, I said yes.
Thursday, February 23, 2012
My wi-fi got fixed today! I now have my phone connected to the internet, and I set up my email. We were getting ready to have me install apps, but I forgot the password for my apple account, (or most likely,) I changed the password and I don’t remember what I changed it to.) I use like 10-12 different passwords, but sometimes I’ll use something that’s completely different. I did manage to reset the password, but I’m still having problems logging in for some reason.

So I did start ICLW yesterday, but I needed to post weekly links so I didn’t say anything about it. For anyone coming here from there, welcome! I got all my sister’s baby gifts ordered yesterday, it was more than $100 worth so it qualified for free super saver shipping. Tomorrow I have someone coming over to help fix my wi-fi, (he wanted to make the trip up here from about an hour away south of here.) He’s being paid by the Commission for the Blind, and they gave us 8 hours, so we’re going to do stuff with the iPhone after we get done with the wi-fi fixing. On Saturday I have a potluck for healing rooms, where the new trainees, (the ones that are starting next week,) get prayed over and what’s called an “impartation.”

- Preschooler’s Homemade Lunch Replaced with Cafeteria “Nuggets”, from carolinajournal.com OK, I don’t have kids, (although I’ll soon be an aunt,) so I’m probably in no position to comment about this one, but I think it’s pretty bad. Apparently the kid’s lunch was missing milk, and since it was absolutely so very„ very important! for her to have the milk instead of the fairly healthy lunch she brought from home, she was told to go through and get a school lunch.
Monday, February 20, 2012
I went to healing rooms this morning. I think next week is the week that we who are still in training get released to pray, and new trainees come in and start their training. I said when I was sitting in, (before they started praying, of course,) that I’d be nervous for next week, and they were telling me not to be nervous. I’m sure I will though, because I don’t want to like mess up big time. After I came home, I called my landlord to come and fix the plugins in my bedroom that are acting badly. I called him twice, and he didn’t call back until around 2. He said he couldn’t come today, but that he would come tomorrow morning at 10. I’m not sure how long this is going to take because one of the plugins makes things get hot, the other plugin was making noise, and I’m not sure if it’s the extension cord or the plugin, but it needs to be checked.

Church was good today, a different person other than our pastor preached. I thought he did a good job. Ever since I went to that other church, I’ve really learned to like my church a lot more than I did. I’m not saying I’ve ever not liked my church, what I’m saying is that I’ve come to appreciate everything about it a bit more than I used to. As in, I’m really thankful that I go to that church kind of thing. I think I’m ready to order my sister’s baby gifts, I’m not going to say what they are until after her shower though, because she just might be reading, (although I think that’s unlikely, I don’t really want to take a chance.) I do know what I’m getting her though, and I want to make sure they’ll get here in time, and I can get them wrapped before the shower, so I suppose I better order them soon. Her shower is coming up on 3/10, so that’s 3 weeks away! My aunt on my mom’s side will be coming out here for the shower; I’m already looking forward to it!

I went to church last night, and had a whole lot of fun! The service was a different kind of service, something we’ve never done before that I know of. There were 2 worship teams, one from my church and one from another church. The first 2 hours, our worship team did the worship, the 2nd part was lead by the other team. During the second part of the service, people had tambourines, and those shaker thingies, (I’m not exactly sure which ones they were or what they’re called,) and one of the worship leaders from our church asked me to come up on stage and play the drums with her! These aren’t exactly drums that are in a set, although we do have those, and someone else from the other church was playing them. These are conga-type drums, the drums Kim plays when she’s on worship team. Of course I couldn’t say no to going up on stage, well I probably could of but that would have been stupid! So I got up there, and I was like wait a second… am I doing this right? The lady said I was, and I was trying to dance at the same time so I was getting a definite workout! I never expected anyone to ask me to come on stage, (like ever in a million years!) so it was definitely something fun and different! Kim and I also did a bit of flag waving, (yeah, we’re that kind of church,) and that was interesting. It was a bit hard to keep the flag from getting tangled around the stick so I could actually wave it, but when I did it was kind of fun.
Friday, February 17, 2012
Kim called me today, to ask if I wanted to go to this worship service at church. I said yes, I’d actually wanted to go when they announced it, but didn’t think I’d be able to. We were encouraged to fast before it, but since I didn’t think I’d be able to go, I didn’t end up fasting. It goes from 7 to 11 tonight, so I wasn’t sure when I was going to get back, (Kim said she doesn’t really want to stay for the whole thing,) so I needed to post before I left. I was going to register to do 30 days of lists next month, but for some weird reason you have to pay to get access to everything. If it was 3 or $4 I might consider it, but it’s $8, and that’s just a bit expensive to have to pay for a list of writing prompts and a private blog. I might still do it though, or I might decide to do it unofficially. The doctor’s office got my lab test results back, and they still say my thyroid levels are a bit high, so they think they have to adjust it again… OK fine, whatever… let’s just do this whole flippin thing all over again!

1) Do you have a recognized day in mind (like Mother’s Day or Father’s Day, etc) that you think should be a Holiday (day off from work)? I think we have enough of those already with holidays like president’s day, but valentine’s day comes to mind, (although I don’t know why.)
2) Do you have a Holiday in mind that you think we should banned? I’m not a huge fan of Mother’s and father’s day, we already give gifts and take family members out to dinner on their birthdays and Christmas, do we really have to do it a third time? In our family, my sister’s birthday falls right before father’s day, there’s always a huge conflict because mom and my sister don’t like to celebrate those things together, I don’t think my dad really cares though.
Via Thursday 2 questions
I went to go have lab tests done today. I’ve had this lab order here since September, and it was supposed to be filled in December, somehow I managed to put it off until today. The lady had to take blood from my hand, because it wouldn’t work in my arm.

My friend got a verdict in her daughter’s case yesterday. The guy was found guilty of manslaughter, and he’ll spend 10 years in prison. The case was a 16 year old cold case without a lot of evidence, so it’s good that he was found guilty of something. I actually didn’t see it until this morning, because she didn’t post the status until last night, and I didn’t check my email until I went to bed. I have Facebook set up to notify me when certain people update their status’s, so that I know what they said and when they said it, that is if I check my email right away.

Did you watch the Grammy’s? I watched some of them, but fell asleep about a half hour in. I didn’t stay up until they finished, because I needed to go to bed so I could get up in the morning.

We went to lunch today after healing rooms, I didn’t get home until like 2:45. We only had 2 prayer seekers come today, we usually have like 4 or 5.
Sunday, February 12, 2012
I actually didn’t do much today, still trying to get over sort of trying to be sick. I think I’m almost there, and by tomorrow morning it should be done, (hopefully.) I was glad to see my friend Kim at church today, her daughter’s case is almost over, closing arguments are tomorrow. Of course after the closing arguments come the jury instructions, and deliberations, (and of course the wait.) Tomorrow I’m going to healing rooms, and after that we’re going to have lunch. This is actually the lunch we’re supposed to have once a month, not like the last couple that weren’t really planned.

My dad brought me some medicine today, I had night time stuff, but not daytime stuff, so he brought me some of those. I didn’t sleep that well last night, so I would have been perfectly OK with taking night stuff. I intend to take it tonight, so hopefully I sleep better. Other than that, I didn’t really do much today. I’ll be going to second service tomorrow.

Like way too early, around 8. I had a really bad headache, and I woke up at 1 AM with a headache and a soar throat. I just hope I’m not getting sick! CenturyLink called me today to tell me that my upgrade is complete, so I went to test it and got various results. I got 8.3 for my download speed once, (shouldn’t it at least be 10? Then I got 5.4, (uh… seriously! 5.4? I’ve never tested that slow before that I know of, unless I had 5 Meg internet when I had charter, I don’t remember.) Then I got around 7.6, OK I know speed testing isn’t an exact science or anything, but I’ve never had results be all over the place like that before. Usually, my results stay almost the same, so I’m not sure why they ended up like that. One thing I noticed with CenturyLink, is that on my 7Meg plan, I’d test at like 6.3 or something like that, so it would at least be close to 7. But the results I’m getting now don’t really make any sort of sense. I think it might be the tester I’ve been using.
Thursday, February 9, 2012
My connection was working early this morning, but then stopped working today around 11. Today was the day they were going to upgrade my speed, but they told me not to reset my modem until after 5. We ended up going grocery shopping today, and I called Century Link, apparently some information got changed that was needed or something, so I had to go and put that information back in. As of like at 4:30 this afternoon, I hadn’t been upgraded yet, (I did a speed test.)

I had to call Verizon today, because I needed to ask them if I could pay my bill online, even though the account is in my mom’s name. I had to register my number, and they said that it would see that I’m on mom’s account. It did see that I’m on her account, so I got ready to pay the bill. I texted mom to confirm the charges before I did it though, just to make sure. She thought it was $5 more than I did, but then she told me to wait, so she could look at the charges. Uh… I was already sitting in the form, ready to submit the payment! She told me to wait a second time, and then got the text from me that said I was ready to submit, so she told me to pay that now, and if I need to I can pay the extra charges later. So I had to get back into the form, because she told me to wait twice, so I closed the window the form was in, so I had to get back there. I’ll be going grocery shopping tomorrow with my friend and her boyfriend, we’ll be going sometime tomorrow afternoon.

- TVShack Admin Can Be Extradited To US, Judge Rules, from torrentfreak.com I like what the guy’s mother said with respect to the judge, “that “that guy just lives and breathes extradition.” They definitely do in the British extradition system, as we’ve seen over the past 14 months. This one could probably end up at the British Supreme court, too.
- here’s a Wikipedia article on the person and the case.

I’m deferring weekly links until tomorrow. I got really tired after healing rooms today, and just didn’t get ready for some reason. I did have fun today though, and I prayed for my friend who’s involved in her daughter’s case. I made sure she was on the prayer list, and they let me pray for her while we were there too. We have a prayer list that the lady that comes and gets me generates, she emails it to me, and lately she’s been emailing it to everyone. I’m actually coming to enjoy being there more and more, the first week or 2 it was awkward as everyone was getting used to having us trainees there, but it’s definitely gotten better! I thought I forgot my phone this morning or I would have turned it off, but I got a call just as we were getting done. It was a friend of a friend, I bought chocolate from my friend, (who lives far away, and I’ve known since I attended the school for the blind,) for a fundraiser. Her friend was delivering it to me. I couldn’t have her deliver it to me yesterday, because before Friday night, I wasn’t sure which church service I was going to.
Sunday, February 5, 2012
- Church was good today! I really enjoyed being back at my church!
- My friend Kim, who I went on retreat with last year, and is on worship team at church sometimes, is involved in the murder trial of her daughter, (this happened 16 years ago, and her daughter just went missing one night, all of a sudden.) She had to testify last week, and she really needs prayer right now!
- I did end up watching some of the Super Bowl, like 20 minutes at the beginning and an hour at the end, although I did fall asleep during the last part.
- I wanted to watch “the Voice,” which came on after the Super Bowl was over.
- I have healing rooms tomorrow. I’m totally setting my alarm on my phone for like 6 AM, so that I don’t oversleep like I have for the past 2 weeks!

My friend, her boyfriend, and I are going to 2nd service tomorrow. I get to go back to church after not being there, and going to a different church last Sunday! Although last weekend was interesting, I’m really looking forward to tomorrow for some reason! I’m not sure why, because I have absolutely nothing planned tomorrow, other than go to church. I don’t even plan to watch the Super Bowl, although I might watch the end just for fun. Not that I like watching the end of the Super Bowl or anything, there’s just something I want to watch after it. OK, time to click publish!
Friday, February 3, 2012
I’ve had a headache all day today, a really bad one that causes me to want to not do much of anything. So, here’s a quick question.
Do you plan on watching the Super Bowl? I don’t think so, I don’t usually watch it. I did go to a friend’s house last year for a party thingy, but unless I make plans like that I don’t intend to watch the Super Bowl.

today was the second day of the British supreme court extradition hearings. It was Sweden’s turn to present their case, and the Swedish QC went too long. She was supposed to give the QC for the defense an hour to reply, but she didn’t. The judges did give her an hour to reply, so the hearings got over at 9 instead of 8 like they did yesterday. I tweeted that I’ve never seen someone as disorganized as the Swedish QC while presenting a case, and that was definitely a true statement! Just like yesterday, she didn’t do a good job of answering the judges questions at all, and she seemed to backtrack a lot. I went to bed at 7:45 last night, so that I could get up at 2 and feel like I got enough sleep. I also went to sleep for a couple hours after the hearings, and I think I’m going to bed at about 9 tonight.
Wednesday, February 1, 2012
I was up at 2 AM this morning, for the start of the Supreme Court hearings in the Swedish extradition case. The hearings started at 2:30, and lasted until almost 8 my time. The defense lawyer spoke first, for about 4 and a half hours. There were 7 judges, and they were able to interrupt and ask her questions at any time, and she was able to answer all the questions they asked. Then the Swedish QC, (the Queen’s Counsel representing the Swedish prosecutor, started to speak. She had problems answering the judge’s questions for some reason; it was almost like they were cross examining her. The Swedish QC only spoke for a half hour before the hearings finished for the day, she’ll finish her arguments tomorrow. These hearings are actually live streamed, so we get to watch them take place live, and follow live tweets at the same time! I didn’t get that much sleep last night for some reason. I definitely feel like I’ve been up for 24 hours already, and it’s only been 16. I ended up eating 4 times in 12 hours, which is what I try to do when I stay up for 24 hours, but I haven’t wanted to eat anything since then. I reached my loopy stage while my friend and I were at lunch. I was laughing at everything, so much so that when we were checking the mail; my landlord asked me why I was laughing so much, (“why do I hear so much racket?”) I did manage to go to sleep for a while though; I’ll be doing the same thing tomorrow morning.
