Taking a break

Okay, folks, thinks have been going CRAZY here at work for awhile, so to take a breather, I found this little surveyish thing to do. I think everybody should do it (everybody being you, Heidi & Megan, since you're the only two I know who have one of these). I'll be looking for yours in a blog near me! :)

I AM: a wife (worked hard for that one!); an editor; an OSU grad and unflinching Buckeye fan; a friend; a dreamer

I WANT: for Mike & I to find the perfect house for our budget; to have kids someday; to make those I care about laugh and smile; a million dollars (had to say that one!)

I HAVE: the most WONDERFUL husband anyone could ask for; 1 very wired kitten; 1 visibly depressed cat (it's really killing me that Callie doesn't seem to like me anymore); an amazing family that I appreciate more everday; a sometimes-frustrating sense of responsibilty

I WISH: that I could stay motivated in certain areas of my life; I could be more assertive; that my husband didn't have to work so hard; I could snap my fingers and the bathroom would clean itself

I HATE: MICHIGAN; disorganization; the current white house administration; when I say the wrong thing and know I can't take it back; having to work late when it seems it won't really help in the long run

I MISS: Mike, when I'm not with him; that childhood certainty that everything's going to be okay; family & friends that I don't see often enough

I HEAR: right now, the AC & the sound of someone stamping "APPROVED" on pages here at work

I WONDER: if someday our children will be the same idiot teenagers to us that we were to our parents; what's for dinner tonight; whether I'll be dumb enough to come in and work this weekend; whether the Buckeyes can truly pull off another National Championship this year

I REGRET: some of the wrong things I've said or done, especially recently

I AM NOT: afraid to be a geek out in public anymore!; a snitch; closed to suggestions

I DANCE: pretty badly; any chance I get!

I SING: horribly; in the car

I CRY: at a lot of movies--not just the super sappy ones; when I really care about something or someone; sometimes alone

I AM NOT ALWAYS: who I want to be

I WRITE: here on my blog; emails

I CONFUSE: myself, a lot

I NEED: my husband; my family; to know that I am love and appreciated; to sleep with some kind of blanket at night; the internet

I SHOULD: go back to work; eat better and exercise; go to the store

I START: a good book and can't put it down until I'm done (Harry Potter, Da Vinci Code); organizing things and can't stop!

I FINISH: hoping that you learned something small about the person that I am! And remember, GO BUCKS!! :)

Congrats to Auntie Angie!

A big congratulations to Angie, who became an aunt again on Monday! Owen Thomas came into the world at 8 lb 11 oz, and with a nice head of hair! Congrats, Mrs. Wood!

Well, I am finally OFFICIALLY Mrs. Mike Cotter!!! I just checked the Franklin county Web site, and after what seemed like an eternity, they finally processed our marriage application. Now if I could just get them to send us the darn copy so I can get all of my paperwork done!

Boy, did we ever have a busy weekend!!! First it was up to Mansfield to visit with the folks; we had filets and SHEESH were they fabulous! We also got to watch GT play with his car and in a bucket (and do some other things but I won't get into that here--winks to all of you who were on the deck at the time). Then we went and saw the Star Wars thing at COSI with John; the best part was going on the Millenium Falcon simulator--freaking cool. Then today it was off to Jacobs Field to watch the Indians lose to the Reds (trust me, we wanted that to be the other way around). Now we're at home receiving love from the kitten (she just loooooooves Mikey). Hope everyone had a good weekend, and we'll talk to you soon! :)

Not so exciting...

Yeah, today is pretty dull so far. I'm waiting on a project to come back from a vendor, and I just received word that it won't be here until tomorrow. Now I get to work in piddly stuff instead. Oh well, such is life here in production. I did get this wonderfully bizarre photo from my sister Heidi, though--talk about random! My other sister Abby is coming to visit tonight (actually, she's coming to visit her boyfriend Mike and needs me to keep her company until he gets off work), so at least I've got that to look forward to; I'm gonna make her help me make cupcakes! Good times. Let's see, what else...Mike & I have a pretty busy weekend planned; we're headed up to Mansfield on Saturday to visit my folks, then we're bringing John back down here so we can go to COSI and see the Star Wars exhibit. On Sunday, we'll drop John back off on the way up to the Indians/Reds game in Cleveland. I wonder what the weather is supposed to be like...

I'm back!

Well, I can't get on MySpace here at work anymore, which leaves me pretty much nothing to do while I'm on lunch, so I figured I'm come back here and try this blog thing out again. It's so weird not to have any errands to run during lunch! Before the wedding, I was always going somewhere, trying to take care of some small detail before the whole thing came together. It was a beautiful wedding, and it was exactly how Mike & I wanted it--short, sweet, personal, FUN--I just hope all who attended had as good a time as we did.
