first person to name the song gets a cookie ^_^

and no googling either, thats cheating lol

I was hanging with the fellas
Saw you with your new boyfriend, it made me jealous
I was hoping that I'd never see you with him
But it's all good, 'cause I'm glad that I met him
'Cause now I know the competition's very slim to none
And I can tell by looking that he's not the one
He's not the type you said you liked
His style is wack, clothes are bad
Come on, girl, let him go
I want you back

also on my to do list

make my own laundry detergent. a few of my army wife friends do this and they say it works really well, plus it saves a LOT of money.

1 whole ivory (or whatever soap you like) bar shredded
1/2 cup borax
1/2 cup super washing soda
It's powdered detergent. Just keep it in a tupperware and shake it up. Use about 1 tbsp per load of laundry.

today is the autumnal equinox

The Fall Equinox is also known as: Alban Elfed, Autumn Equinox, Autumnal Equinox, Cornucopia, Feast of Avilon, Festival of Dionysus, Harvest Home, Harvest Tide, Mabon, Night of the Hunter, Second Harvest Festival, Wine Harvest, Witch's Thanksgiving, and the first day of autumn.

The word "equinox" was derived from Latin term "æquinoctium" which, in turn, came from "æquus" (equal), and "nox" (night). It refers to the time that occurs twice a year when the nighttime is equal to the daytime -- each being 12 hours in duration.

i hate army healthcare <_<

so yesterday i called the clinic and made an appointment for this morning with my PCM to get a referral for an ob/gyn. ive not been seen at the clinic before so they just made the appointment in my husbands name. well mitch just got a call asking about the appointment.....apparently i need to be enrolled in the clinic before i can be seen. WHY this didnt occur to them to mention this when they scheduled the appointment is beyond me! they even asked what the referral was for and i told them, a pap. wouldnt it occur to YOU if you were them, that hmmm, MAYBE, just MAYBE, a MAN doesnt need a pap smear?!? ok so we go to the clinic to enroll me, well we get there and they tell us we need my tricare forms (why couldnt they have just said that over the phone?) so they tell us which office to go to at the hospital and we go and do our thing, go back to the clinic only to be told we went to the WRONG office. WE WENT WHERE THEY TOLD US TO GO!!! so we go BACK to the hospital, go to the right office, wait for over an hour, get me enrolled in tricare, and are told the rules have changed and since we live off-post i have to be seen off post. FINE WITH ME! hopefully i wont have to deal with this bullshit anymore! so i pick my PCM from a list and get all squared away. we get home, after being gone for 4 hours doing all this shit. i called my PCM to get an appointment for a referral...they cant see me until the beginning of november. they said that tricare KNOWS theyre booked up until then. however, the woman at the tricare office said NOTHING about that, in fact she told me to tell them i needed to be seen as soon as possible, and i had told her i needed to be seen within the week. so then mitch calls the on-post clinic and asked if i could just go in and have a new scrip written up for me, and they said no but i can go to any off-post doctor that accepts tricare. well the lady at the tricare office told me i have to go to the clinic im assigned to, which is the one that cant see me til november. mitch googled and found a place that can get me in on monday thank god. so he called the tricare office to have them switch my PCM from the old clinic to the one that can get me in on monday (if i called id either break down in tears bc im so stressed or start screaming at someone. i am way past my tolerance level for the day). so he called tricare to have them switch my PCM...and apparently since im still on tricare standard i dont even need a referral from a PCM o.O so we found an ob/gyn that can get me in on the 30th of this month, a day after my scrip runs out, which is fine with me. i just wish id known this this morning so we wouldnt have had to deal with all this shit. fucking shitty morning. to everyone who says government-run healthcare would be the best thing ever, you dont know shit.

oy, RAMIE!!



"Great harm has been done to us. We have suffered great loss. And in our grief and anger we have found our mission and our moment. Freedom and fear are at war. The advance of human freedom -- the great achievement of our time, and the great hope of every time -- now depends on us. Our nation, this generation will lift a dark threat of violence from our people and our future. We will rally the world to this cause by our efforts, by our courage. We will not tire, we will not falter, and we will not fail."

if you get the reference then im not the only nerd around here ;)

getting so excited

so im gonna be going to raleigh next weekend for the Pagan Pride Day festival. im looking at the website right now, specifically all the different workshops, and OMG they sound like FUN!! theres one called "animism in eden and sacred spaces", intro to druidry, goddess workshop, intro to wicca, folklore of herbals, and beginning bellydancing...omg i cant wait this is gonna be so much fun!!! :bouncing:

well this feels familiar...

so i was originally told that we (ex-skybus employees) would be receiving our settlement checks sometime this month. well i just called our contact person and was told that the final hearing is tomorrow and checks will not be sent out until a month after the hearing. so now we are "guaranteed" our checks sometime before the end of the year.

wtf guys, come on. i need that money! it just feels like were being jerked around by skybus all over again :(

ahhh ^_^

well this weekend was amazing. i went to myrtle beach with sam for a couple days since we both needed a break lol. we spent all day sunday just laying on the beach (now im nice and tan - but my nose is burnt :( lol). it was SO relaxing. we were going to spend monday on the beach too but it stormed in the morning so we drove around looking at all the cute beach houses. the rain slowed down to a light drizzle so we walked the beach and found some pretty seashells, and a sea urchin shell. that was cool :) now today its FINALLY cooled down to 79 degrees (its been in the high 90s for 3 weeks!) and ive got my windows open to let the breeze in...its absolutely wonderful. i am so relaxed...i needed this weekend so much. now erin al and finn are coming in this weekend (yay!) and hopefully i can make another trip to the beach next weekend :)

this pretty much sums up my weekend right here:
