Life is Short

Moving in TWO Weeks!


A while back I mentioned that im moving to Arizona... Well, the move is rapidly approaching! In two weeks time I will be making a 1,839 mile one way road trip. Which is part of the reason for my blog neglecting lately. You see, I have been seeing and visiting with all the people I need to before I leave, trying to reduce my load (I'm only taking what fits in the car) and I've been working on top of all that!

Last weekend I went up to Michigan to see my grandparents. We had warm weather, 2 rainbows, hail, tornado warnings/watches, rain, snow and sunshine all in one weekend! Click here to see the pictures.

Friday I went to the Cincinnati Reds baseball game... sadly, we lost, but I got my standard nachos and Lemon Chill. Seriously - food is the only reason to go to a baseball game ;-) I can't wait for the Reds to start their spring training in AZ - I must go see!

Saturday I got my hair done for the last time by my hairdresser. I wanted to cry. When you find someone who does your hair the way you like it, you feel like you are dreaming. I'm going to have to go through the nightmare of finding a new person to do my hair soon... not looking forward to it at all! Hhmmm.... I wonder if I can go without a hair cut/color until I'm back visiting in September....

One of my best friends is coming from Indy to visit this weekend and I'm super excited! I feel like it has been a while since I've seen her! We are planning on trip to the comedy club Friday and a concert on Saturday. God, I love NOT working on the weekends!

It's hard to keep up with everything.... but let me tell you what - It feels kind of AWESOME to get rid of a lot of stuff. I have a lot that I know I could use, especially when I get my own place down there - but it really is a lot of stuff I don't need! Besides I figure someone else can use it - So Goodwill is the answer!

Out with the old and in with the new!

So, I will be scarce the next few weeks.... but I plan to do some old fashion blogging (pen to paper) while I'm driving - well, when I stop anyway.... I'm thinking about scanning those and posting them here. So look out for some interesting stuff!

That Time I Fainted


We had just returned from lunch and were sitting in our desks working on meaningless busy work... Suddenly I felt an immediate need to wash my hands. I didn't know why and thought it was odd, but I couldn't sit there. I had to get up and wash my hands. I got up - did not ask the teacher but told him, "I'm going to the bathroom." He gave me a concerned look and said okay. I think I startled him by abruptly getting up and not asking - just leaving (not typical Erika). I went to the bathroom, which was right across the hall, and washed my hands. As I dried my hands I noticed that weird feeling hadn't gone away. I thought I had better get up to the nurses office. I walked out of the bathroom and the hall teacher asked me if I needed help. Thinking I was fine I said "No, I'm good." shortly after I said that I realized I was leaning against the wall as I walked. I suddenly noticed my feet weighed a ton. The next tthing I know I was sitting on the floor in front of a random classrooms door. A wheelchair was brought to me and I was whisked away to the nurses office.

Out of Order

I like an escalator because an escalator can never break, it can only become stairs. There would never be an escalator temporarily out of order sign, only an escalator temporarily stairs. Sorry for the convenience.

I'm F*ing Laughing

Warning. Bad language.

I don't know if anyone else watches Jimmy Kimmel (late night talk show)... But he always says at the end of his show something along the lines of sorry "Matt Damon we ran out of time."

Sarah Silverman, who is dating Jimmy, came out with this video...



and this was Jimmy's response...



and NOW, there is this.... lol.

So funny.
