Merry Christmas

This is my new apartment on Christmas morning. I live at 2100 Jeremy Drive (pictured on sign) #107 (listed on porch), Monroeville, PA. How convenient right? It is a ground level apartment right near one of the entrances to the complex.


Shortly after I took this picture I drove to Joey's in Champion. We watched movies that took place over Christmas made cookies and had a Jennie-O Turkey for dinner. Max and I spent the night and drove home around noon. I took this picture just before I left.

Our Sunday Drive

Max and I went for a drive to check out a dog park. The first dog park we tried was way on the other side of where the entrance was so I didn't feel like walking all that way. I don't know that I ever will.  I kept driving and tried the one that the map infers is right off the side of the road... I didn't see it so I kept driving and found that this road takes me all the way back to my house another way.

I wasn't done exploring so I kept going. This last one was a mistake. I wasn't actually looking for a dog park, I just wanted to see where the road went. Now I know and I will NEVER take that road again. It took me down, down, down until I was at the bottom of the small canyon that the big blue bridge goes over. As I watch the area familiar to me get farther and farther away, I kept driving. I was right in assuming that it would eventually meet up with RTE30. I ended up only one block from the road I turn on to get to Wal-Mart. WHEW! Thank goodness for the Yellow Belt sign!

When I was back in familiar territory, I looked in the rear view mirror only to see Max with his head wedged all crooked between the head rests. He had that look on his face... It said, "Are you kidding me?" I couldn't help but laugh. Sorry no picture. I left my camera and my phone behind.

If I stand real still...

Last week it rained a lot. So much so that there was flooding in the surrounding areas. I happen to own a very large umbrella but it doesn't always keep us both dry. After coming in and rubbing down Max with a towel I draped it over him and he stood there just like this for several minutes.

New Job, New Home!

My first week on the job went great! Everyone is so nice and so excited that I'm there.

The actual office part is very small. My manager, a Training manager (I don't really understand his purpose), a Tech Manager, HR Manager, Accounting Lady, Admin girl and Me (Inventory Control &  Purchasing).  Then there are the doctors and the techs and residents.

It is very interesting to be on the other side of the wall in this type of place. I am often right down where the saving goes on. I'm doing my best to not watch. It will be better if I don't look. I do tend to look at the ones in the cages though. They're just recovering.  I am not allowed to pet anything! Safety rules. Makes perfect sense.

I was only "trained" on the first day by the training manager on safety and touring the bldg and stuff. Everything else so far has been learn as you go and do it yourself. I love that! He is NOT a micro-manager. So far I've cleared the piles of invoices from my desk and filed them in what I have completely restructured already! It's not perfection yet but it will suffice. The girl before me and Martin (my boss) must have filed in the existing files of the previous girl and they obviously didn't follow the pattern!

I didn't get a long weekend. Just Thanksgiving and then Sat/Sun. Joey came over and we had chicken, stuffing, corn, mashed potatoes, crescent rolls and then he made choc. chip cookies. I only get 6 holidays and that's only if they land on a weekday. So Christmas and New Year's I don't get paid for since I won't be working on Sat.  It's fine. I can use PTO to make it a long weekend if I want once I earn more. Carry over PTO turns to time +1/2 days! Cool. I'm already carrying over 5 days that will turn into 7.

I'm almost situated at home.  I'm still watching for a kitchen table on craigslist or on sale somewhere.  I'll take pictures soon and make an MDS page. So far, I've made Dad's soup, meatloaf, and 2 pumpkin pies. The soup and the meatloaf has lasted, the pies have not.

I pulled out some stamps last night. I want to finally get some things done to put on my Etsy. I created my Etsy account back in 2009! Ha ha. We'll see what I come up with. My goal is to post something by Dec 1. My stamping stuff is mostly put away but not completely. I'm still working on where I want stuff and I need to find just the right hook to hang them in the closet. What I have leaves them dragging. Maybe I'll find another shoe bag at a thrift store that I can just cut short. That would be ideal.

Bridget is living like a queen with Dad. He basically lives at the Provo house now. Max is adjusting well. I think he has stopped barking all day now that I have a routine for him.

Road Trip!


On Thursday, November 11th, Joey and I left Provo. We were driving a Penske Truck pulling an auto trailer with my CR-V on it. All went well. Max did great in the cab of the truck. He only had trouble in the hotel. Wouldn't sit still but there was light under the door and many other dogs in the hotel and stuff even though we arrived at 2am. We should have put a towel to block that. The next hotel he did a little better. He ate some deer pellets at one of the stops. YUCK! Can you tell the difference?? Apparently he can not...
We arrived at my new home at 4pm on Saturday the 13th and was checked in an unloaded by 5:15.  Steve Maxwell met us there to help Joey unload. We returned the truck on Sunday morning. Unfortunately there are things to clean in the apt before I can unload some stuff. I don't have internet yet so I can work on MDS until I do. 
 
On Sunday Max and I went to Joe's place. It's good because then we'll go home and he'll understand that we've returned. We picked a spot for him to go... He's doing okay with the other dog sightings so far. Barking with excitement but I'm able to get him to stop for the most part and it's getting better each time. Picking it up isn't as bad as I thought. It helps that he's a stationary pooper.

Goals: My 2 Year Plan Update

I thought I should post an update about my 2 year plan. I have completed all four tasks in 3 months. Here's the story:
Before I left for my October vacation to Pittsburgh, I sent over a resume with a cover letter stating that I would be in the area from the 6-12th and that I would be available for an interview. They called immediately and told me they wanted to meet me. When I arrived I set up my interview with Avets for the 7th. I brought a nice outfit for the interview but ended up wearing a zip up hoodie over it because it was just a bit chilly. Nice huh? They told me they would let me know within the next 2 weeks so I continued with my vacation.
The morning after I returned home to UT (the 14th), I received a phone call offering me the job. I waited until Friday to break the news to Mom & Dad and then accepted the offer by returning the signed documents. After a week or so of waiting for test results (I peed in a cup) and researching apartments and stuff I confirmed that the job was official. I was able to proceed with the preparations of moving. I secured an apartment only 3 minutes from work. It allows pets, has a pool, fitness center, dog park etc. I'm pretty excited though packing up my house is just a bit overwhelming. Especially since I'm leaving a lot of it here and moving into a 1 bedroom apartment until I find a house. It will be at least 1 year before that happens. I got a hitch on my car and got a cell phone too.
I have a busy schedule full of friends and packing before I go.  Joey flies in Thurs to help me pack my stuff and drive to PA. That will be in about 10 days. I have my utilities set to turn on for the 12th. I'll be there before I know it and then I'll let you know how the trip went.

Goals: House Hunting

Last year when I visited Joey in PA I decided that it really felt like home. I couldn't wait to come back and look at houses so that I could have a "fall" home here. I am finally back(one year later) and I have a Realtor(friend of Joey). It's only my 2nd day here and I've already gone to see houses. I have been working with Jenn over the internet to set up a list of places to see.

Above is the first(and best) of the houses that I visited. It has many of the things I am looking for even though it isn't really out in the country. It is located in North Versailles which is slightly southwest of Monroeville. Why there you ask? Because it is only 14 minutes from a where I have a job interview lined up for tomorrow.

Here are a few highlights:
1.25 Acres
1 year Home Warranty
Stone fireplace that matches the outside of the house
Large deck with 2 entrances from inside and a stairwell to the ground
2 Bedroom/1.5 Bath
Office
Family Room/Stamp Room over garage
Garage
2 basement exits (not including exiting through garage)
Hardwood floors under carpet
Stationary Tub and Large work bench in work/laundry room
Comes with appliances(Washer, Dryer, 2 Refrigerators, Stove)
Extra off street parking for about 5 cars
Shed
Garden
Near 2 Bowling Alleys, KMart, Home Depot, Library, Dog Park, Wal-Mart, Mall, Exxon, Giant Eagle and only 15 minutes to Kennywood!

Definitely something to think about if I get offered the job. The asking price after already being lowered from I don't know what is $114, 900.

The other houses I saw were easily eliminated for the following reasons:
House #2: The street to the house was way too steep so we didn't even go in.
House #3: It was lovely on the outside but going inside was like stepping back in time (see below)
House #4: It was a little out of the way and other than being on a great secluded acre the downstairs was so crappy it wasn't even worth attempting to update. Rerouted pipes(pipe from old toiled downstairs went straight up to make the upstairs bathroom)and wires all over the place. What a waste.

When we were all done, Jenn took me to meet up with Joey at the Sandhill Berry Farm and I met a few animals. A sheep and a Llama: Timmy was very nice but got camera shy(ears back). How can you not fall in love with that face?!

Tomorrow I will be looking at 2 more that are out near Joey but I don't really want to live out that far since there wouldn't really be any jobs. They would definitely be vacation homes only.

Getting Fit: Lose 10 by 10 (October)

I actually started this goal a few days ago so I basically have a month. The way things go right now, it is a struggle for me to even maintain my weight let alone lose it. As you can see, I tried the cleanse (previous post) and that helped but it isn't a reasonable thing to continue with. Aside from eating correctly (Weight Watchers style), I have decided to start taking digestive enzymes again. I used to take them a long time ago but ran out and never replaced them. I'm starting to realize it would have been a lot cheaper to have replaced the supply so this time I bought a large bottle of Daily Essential Enzymes from Source Naturals (pictured). Yay for me! They were on sale!

In addition to taking the enzymes, I have been doing my best to move. Last week some time I rode my bicycle from my house to Center Street, all the way to the new frontage road by I-15, and took 500 N back home. It was 5.2 miles RT.

Sunday I rode my bicycle to the post office on 200 S and 100 W and back.

Today, Wednesday, I put my bicycle in the car, drove to Canyon View Park in Provo Canyon and rode to Nunn's Park and back. It was approximately 6 miles RT.

I feel good both inside and out.

Getting Fit: The Master Cleanse update

As it turns out, I started cheating on the 3rd day. The lemonade wasn't bad, I just need crunch so I munched on pretzels by taking very little nibbles. Those nibbles turned into big nibbles. Either way, I think the cleanse worked.

I believe that I am allergic to Senna. The Smooth Move tea was the only thing that I was able to blame for the mild rash that I got on my face. Little bumps and slightly itchy. I stopped drinking it when I realized it might be the cause and my face cleared up within a few days.

I continued to drink the lemonade off and on. I believe that it helped out my metabolism. I have also decided to put digestive enzymes back in my diet. I am currently only using Echinacea since I have it and I want to use it up. It appears to be working just fine. I feel a lot better anyway.

I also wanted to mention that drinking the salt water was not as disgusting as mentioned. I was able to deal with the taste but it was hard to drink so much liquid at once. The results were not so pleasant but it only lasted as long as the amount of liquid that I drank. It definitely went right through but it took about an hour to kick in.

Goals: My 2 Year Plan

Goal: Live and work in Pennsylvania

Step 1: Find employment in UT
Step 2: Buy a "vacation" home in PA
Step 3: Find employment in PA
Step 4: Quit UT job and move to PA

I have recently decided that since I don't have any say in being married and having a family, I do have a say in everything else. I would like to start enjoying my life before it is too late.

I want to live somewhere that makes me happy. I currently live in UT where it is convenient but I want to buy a house in the country in PA for the initial purpose of a getaway. It will be on 1 acre or more and be partially wooded. It will have a fireplace. I would like a large room for stamping, a room for sewing/guest room and a bedroom of course. I hope to find what I'm looking for for under $100K which looks reasonable according to realtor.com.

Of course I will need to be able to afford the house and the other expenses that go with it but I have actually thought about working at less desired jobs just so that I can be there. I can also find a niche and sell stuff on Etsy and eBay in addition to my Stampin' Up! business.

I'm not at all worried about friends and family thanks to the phone/internet and airplanes. I plan to return to UT every year to visit family and attend the Stampin' Up! Convention if it continues to be in UT and also maybe travel to other places for SU! Leadership Conference.

I am currently attempting to simply to begin the process. I'm slowly going through my possessions and getting rid of them. Making a buck in the process if I can. So far so good but I have a lot of stuff!

Getting Fit: The Master Cleanse

The other day, I caught a glimpse of this photo of my long time friend Kelly Ryan (on the left). She looks fabulous! I've always thought we had similar body types and we used to be about the same size. Well not anymore! Besides the fact that apparently she doesn't have hips? It is hard to tell from the photo.

After complimenting her success we got talking about the Master Cleanse that she was about to start. I have been looking for a cleanse since I have been feeling pretty toxic. So guess what!? I started it yesterday with her and I have successfully made it through Day 1.

My starting weight was 170.0 and I did not feel the need to take new "before" photos since the last ones will be sufficient. I have been fluctuating since the last attempt at weight loss so I have been feeling that I need a serious jump start. Clarification: This is an attempt at cleansing my system first and the weight loss is a bonus and a kick start to continue with Weight Watchers. So far, after one day I just weighed in at 166.8. I'm supposed to do this for 10 days. I can't wait to see how long I last and how much weight I lose. They say if you can make it through the first 3 days you're good to go. I had no problem with day one. Yay!

Dog: Max in the Box

I used to have a garden in this box but since the soil became unfit for proper growing, it turned into a day bed for my sweet boy. All that grass and he chooses to lay in a box of dirt. You may not be able to tell but he has is face comfortably positioned on his paw and he is sound asleep. At least he was until I tried to get closer (see "you woke me up" look below).

Pressure Cooker Corn on the Cob


Corn on the cob!

The price of corn is finally reasonable. Dad was visiting so when we passed the corn display at the grocery store, we just had to get some. At 4 for $1 we each had two ears. Don't they, I mean didn't they look yummy! No time to take a photo before when it is so delicious.

I think nothing beats corn on the cob made in the pressure cooker. It was scary at first but now I'm a pro. Here's how you do it in TEN STEPS:

1. Clear the sink completely.
2. Shuck the corn but keep a few husks aside.
3. Put the metal plate thingy in the bottom of the pressure cooker and put the husks on top.
4. Fill with enough water to cover the husks.
5. Put olive oil around the seal of the lid or you'll never get it off.
6. Put the lid on correctly and turn it on High until the steam starts to come through the spout.
DO NOT LEAVE THE ROOM!
7. When it does, put the weight on the spout and set the timer for 7 minutes. (DON'T START IT YET!)
8. When the weight starts to wiggle, turn the heat down to Med. High (ha ha - I didn't do that last night) and start the timer.
9. When the timer goes off. Remove from heat immediately and put the pressure cooker in the sink.
10. Run cold water over the pressure cooker until you hear it hiss. Then you can open it.

Two ears of corn will really fill you up. I LOVE it with salt & pepper only. Dad LOVES it with a pat of butter on each bite.

Dad's Veggie Soup


2 - 16 oz bags of Mixed Frozen Veggies ( peas, corn, green beans, carrots)
14 oz can of Swanson Vegetable Broth
4 Beef Bullion Cubes
1 Cup Quick Barley
1 lb of diced potatoes (I buy the 2lb diced frozen and use 1/2)
28 oz can of Petite Diced Tomatoes
28 oz can of Crushed Tomatoes
Italian Seasoning (I hear he uses Basil now)
Pepper

Put all of the veggies in a stock pot and add enough water to cover.
Boil those with Swanson Veggie Broth and Bullion Cubes
Cook Barley according to instructions on box.
Boil potatoes in another pot.

Once veggies seem cooked, add cans of tomatoes, potatoes, barley, Italian Seasoning & Pepper to taste. Bring to a boil.

Fill canning jars while hot and seal. Makes 24-8oz jars or 12-16oz jars but you need to evenly disburse the veggies and broth throughout. Refrigerate after it cools and seals.

Add S&P to taste after you reheat.
I also add Olive Oil and Cheese YUM!

My dad has been making it for YEARS and I've only finally tried it recently and now can't get enough.

Summer Reading

On my way out of the library last time, a book on the display caught my eye. I happen to be someone who picks a book by it's cover. It looked interesting so of course I found the author on the shelf and found the first book she had written. It is called Five Days in Summer by Kate Pepper.

It was a slow start but that could be because I wasn't in the mood to read? Either way, it was so worth finishing! It got to the point where it was hard to put down and last night, I read for 2 hours and finished it! I give this one 5 Stars because it was clean in general. IF they used any foul language it was very minimal and there was no sex! Can you believe it?!

Unfortunately, it is now Sunday and I forgot to go to the library to get the next book. I have another one that Rebecca recommended so I'll give that one a try. I'm excited to read Kate Pepper's next book though. I'm glad she wrote a few because I keep picking authors that have either only written one book or the library doesn't have or carry the others. Ugh.

Framed!

I have had these frames for a while now and they were in the way so it was time to finish some projects. Yay for having all day every day to myself (unemployed)!!! It is so nice to be able to catch up on some long forgotten projects.


This first frame (above) I got out of the neighbor's trash. It had a pretty painting in it but it had gotten wet so yes, it was trash, but not the frame! There is one edge that is a little buggered up but that gives it character of course. The mirror was in the garage and has been around probably since I was born or before? Who knows but all I had to do was get it cut to 4 ft and it fit perfect in this frame! The cut was only $6 at a local glass store. It is quite a large mirror. Very nice. I'm not sure where to hang it yet.


This next frame (above) I had found at DI years ago. It had so much white paint on it and it looked horrible. I have had intentions for years to strip the paint and put a mirror in it. Well guess what! The mirror was too narrow for this frame and fit perfect in the other frame.

How did I get it to look so old? Dad attempted to remove the paint and didn't finish the job. I also started to remove the paint and realized he had already started. I could see that it was looking very old and weathered so we stopped right there. The old layers of paint were showing through. I basically just got lucky. The back of the frame looks like brand new wood!

I got the idea from pg 98 of Stampin' Up!'s 2010-2011 Idea Book and Catalog. They had taken a frame, added wire and hung projects on it for display. So while helping my friend Anna find good frames I realized that I had the perfect frame for this project! Since I no longer had a plan for this frame, here it is.This is essentially what it will look like but with stamped projects clipped to the wire.

Both of these projects were completed with stuff I already had. YAY!

Do Julie Do: My Fives

I should really copyright this concept or something. It has officially been a year since I started this notebook. I try to do this every day but it doesn't always happen. I write down 5 things to do, get them done and then write down 5 more. Little things like vacuum kitchen, vacuum living room, collect recycles, put out trash, etc. Breaking it down makes it easier to get things done and makes lists less overwhelming but you still get to make lists! :) When this notebook runs out, I'll be switching to the kind with the spirals on the side so it will be easier to turn the pages. Keeping the pages shows what you've accomplished but I eventually recycle them.

Dog: Cat up a Tree

Max wouldn't come in this morning. He kept jumping and running back and forth along the north side of the yard by the volleyball house. I thought he was freaking out about some quail until I caught a glimpse of a black thing in the tree. When I first saw this poor kitty, it's head was turned the other way so I couldn't tell what it was. I put a ladder up to help it out but it jumped to a lower branch, then to the roof of the neighbor's garage, then to the ground and took off. Hopefully it knows now not to venture into my yard again.

Another Ride

I needed some cardio real bad so I decided to go for a bike ride. The last thing I thought of before I left the house was Andrea's name on fb and therefore, she was my destination.

I traveled from A to point B with what seemed like a whole lot of UP HILL! Thanks to my recent strength training, my legs felt a little better than I thought they would. My lungs on the other hand were burning but I made it! I didn't stop at all until I got to her house.

Here's to hoping that I can continue with my workout tomorrow and the next day and the next day....

Corn Salsa


Another healthy favorite. I've altered the original recipe but only because it was too soupy. I don't feel so bad when I eat all of it in one sitting.

1 can Black Beans
1 can Corn
1 large Tomato diced
1 small Onion diced (or less)
1 small Avacado diced
a squirt of lime juice
1 packet of Italian Seasoning
1 tsp Oil
1-2 tsp Vinegar
Cilantro

Serve with Tortilla Chips
A serving of this or even more by itself is 0-1 WW point
You basically want to keep track of the chips.

Eat: Spaghetti with Veggies


Because I am currently unemployed, I am attempting to eat what I already have or purchase as little as possible to complete a meal. So in this case, I had to buy a can of Hunts for $.87 and a sweet onion because my garden onions are not ready yet. They will both last me for several meals. Okay so the onion will only cover 3 but I got a smaller one.

I threw this together the yesterday and it was so delicious I had it again tonight! It is a lot of food and it is healthy if you're careful with the oil.

Recipe for One 
1 serving Thin Spaghetti 
1 small can of mushrooms
sliced sweet onion
frozen pepper strips
2 tsp Olive Oil 

Boil spaghetti and saute veggies in a pan with Olive Oil.
Drain spaghetti and add just enough sauce to moisten it all. 
Drain excess oil (if you used a little extra) and combine with spaghetti.

A Long Productive Day

9:00 AM - I think today deserves a post. I woke up early and decided that since there wasn't anything on TV and it was raining that I would go to my room to read my latest book "Red Leaves" by Thomas H. Cook. While reading I was oddly annoyed by the dripping that I usually enjoy. Turns out, the dripping was in my room! That explains why I found papers stuck to the bureau a while back since I am careful not to put anything that could leak on Daddy's bureaus. Oh no! I called Dad (landlord) right away to let him know but of course that caused a war at his house and ruined his day. Sorry Dad.

9:30 AM - Celia called! It's game night at her house at 5:30PM. Yay! Little reunion with fun co-workers.

10:00 AM - Before I knew it, the electrician was arriving early. He fixed the very scary box in the kitchen and started on the garage. There was a little bit of demolition to remove some drywall and I found an old window! Yay!

12:00 PM - Max got out! Ahh! Luckily the electrician's son called his name so he thought it was Dad and ran to the basement door. I caught him there. Whew!!

1:30 PM - He was called away for another more pressing project so I cleaned the place up and it turns out he won't be returning until next week so game night is on.

2:00 PM - I cleaned up some more by using the shop vac and showered and then hung out on the internet.

4:30 PM - I decided that I just had to get some stuff on eBay today! Ahh! I hurried and took some photos and posted old eyelets, buttons, ribbon, brass template and metal tags. I was only 30 minutes late and when I arrived it didn't seem to even matter. Whew!

6:00 PM - Game night was fun. I had way too many yummy treats and we played fun card games. It was Celia and Nathan Robbins, Beckie and Steve Clark and Tina and Joe Rankin. I'm the odd ball out but they don't make me feel that way which is nice.

10:00 PM - Finally home and relaxing but the day is gone. I'm glad it was productive. I don't think I stopped moving all day. Unfortunately, I ate way too much and I didn't actually do my cardio workout today. :(

11:00 PM - I think I'm getting off of the computer. Back to the book. It is a story about a boy that was babysitting a girl that ends up missing. That's all I know so far. I'm intrigued. It is just like the TV I like. I hope I enjoy the entire book because that means I finally found an author.

Provo River Trail


Today I had my friend Tyler come with me to drop my car off at Utah Lake and then drop me off at Vivian Park with my bicycle. It took me just under 1 1/2 hours to ride from point A to point B. According to this map it is 15 miles. Yay me!

Good Point


A recently read a book that had a few quotes in it that I thought were worth writing down. Unfortunately, I didn't think of this until after I read past the quote. I remember thinking of 3 of them but was only able to find 2 of them when I flipped back through the book. From now on, I'll have a notebook nearby or take the time to flag the page or go write it down.

1. "Politically correct - it's what people without their own ethical center adhere to."
2. "A job is just a job - you can't let it steal your soul"

The Anxiety of Everyday Objects

Since Max is no longer allowed on the furniture (excluding my bed), he hangs out on my bed (keeps it warm) until it is time for me to read with him and then put him to bed in the back room with Bridget. This is how I found him the other day. I thought it was funny that he had his paw over his face and happened to be right next to the book I'm reading "The Anxiety of Everyday Objects". Very cute.

The book is about a woman in her thirties working in a law office and dealing with relationships. Friends and men. So far so good but I'm not even half way through yet.

Are you done yet?

This was Max during my first cardio workout. Both dogs just stared at me the whole time nodding off here and there.

I rode my exercise bike for 20 minutes using the interval technique from Body for Life. It is such a great work out in only 20 minutes and I can't understand why anyone busts their butt for any longer. It is the only workout that can make me break a sweat. I made it through day 2 (Cardio) so it's all down hill from here!

Home Gym

The other day, I decided to start a new plan to get fit. My plan is to exercise using the Body For Life plan and eat using the Weight Watchers plan. Finally combining the two plans that I love.

Unfortunately, I was unable to do the Body For Life exercises at home so I went on KSL and found this!!!! It was a steal at $100. My first work out was getting the parts from the car to the house and then assembling it. I am so excited!

To top things off, the inner thigh of my favorite pants has ripped during the process. Yet another reason to continue with the plan.
