Kind Words

So normally I try and send out an email to my friends once a week (I normally have down time around lunch and spend time sending out emails and little notes to friends). Today I received a reply from a great girl and I just wanted to share it (I did omit some sections to help keep her anonymous).

i just wanted to thank you so much. i have been thinking sooooo much lately about things like my life and just everything and you have been such an amazing blessing carlee. you have been w/ me through just everything. i love more than anything that we have gotten sooo close. you are sooooooo amazing!!! thank you for everything every single email that you have writtin me never allowing me to forget for a second that your there and that you constantly wanna talk and help. you just have no idea how much you have done for me. listening to me over and over again complaing seriously... thanks!!! i love you your seriously like a sister to me!

The reason I wanted to share this was because I guess I never realized that my weekly (or biweekly if I get busy) mean to those around me. I guess I just figure it is something to take up time and that if the other person has time I would love to hear how they are doing. For some reason I would never think that someone out there was waiting to hear how I was doing. I also wanted to remind everyone, DON'T UNDERESTIMATE HOW MUCH YOUR LOVING WORDS MEAN TO THOSE AROUND YOU.

To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

Save Trestles!!

Way to go San Diego!!

San Diego has joined a growing chorus of cities opposed to a toll road extension through San Onofre State Beach, surprising and disappointing tollway officials who are battling for support.

The San Diego City Council voted 6 to 2 Tuesday night to support the state Park and Recreation Commission's opposition to the route and urge the Orange County toll agency to find an alternative, said San Diego Councilwoman Donna Frye, who introduced the resolution with two colleagues.

"This road is not a good traffic solution," Feldman said. "It cuts through the park and also through a wetlands. It could affect a nearby surfing beach where Trestles is located, and there are 11 endangered or threatened species in the San Mateo watershed."

The Office

Tonight is the season premier for The Office. Here is a little synopsis:

THE RUN FOR THE CURE-SPECIAL ONE-HOUR PREMIERE - A freak accident causes Michael (Golden Globe winner Steve Carell) to feel the office is cursed. He explores the religious beliefs of his employees before deciding to hold a charity 5K fun run. Meanwhile, further developments in the romances of Pam (Jenna Fischer) and Jim (John Krasinski), and Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and Angela (Angela Kinsey) are explored. B.J. Novak, Melora Hardin, Ed Helms, Leslie David Baker, Brian Baumgartner, Kate Flannery, Oscar Nunez, Phyllis Smith, Paul Lieberstein, Mindy Kaling, Craig Robinson and Creed Bratton also star.

Hope you are able to catch it!! (Even though I should be sleeping since I will need to be at the airport around 5am tomorrow, I WILL BE SURE TO WATCH THIS ONE HOUR PREMIER!)

T - 21 hours

I will be flying back to Michigan in about 21 hours. So, knowing me, the prepared one, I went online to check in for my flights, right? I am flying Southwest (I had a gift card from my parents from this past Christmas). I haven't flown on them in a while and I see they have changed things up slightly. I noticed that I didn't have a seat assignment on my ticket, so I went to the main site to check in to see what was going on. Apparently they just now board based on your boarding group (A, B or C) and you just sit where there are open spots. I am sure I will have a story about this when I return, but let's hope for good luck.


Last night I got my hair trimmed and I redyed it (seeing as for the past three weeks I have looked like a leopard). Here are a few shots (profile shot to show the even dye job I did this time).

Player of the Week

Congrats Kelly!!

Wurzell Named WHAC Defensive Player of the Week
Posted by Joshua Steffen - Mon, Sep 24, 2007 at 1:25 PM

Concordia goalkeeper Kelly Wurzell (Jr. - Lambertville, Mich.) was named the Wolverine-Hoosier Athletic Conference's defensive player of the week after guiding the Cards to a 2-1 record moving their overall record to 4-4. Wurzell, Concordia's all-time shut-out leader, helped lead the Cards to a 5-0 win over Tri-State University and a 2-1 double overtime win over Davenport University. The win over the Panthers was Concordia's first conference win of the season. Wurzell also had 13 saves in Concordia's 1-0 overtime loss to conference leader Aquinas College. Kelly Wurzell is the first Cardinal soccer player to receive the honor from the conference this season.

Veg Blog and Recipes

I got an email from PETA with some blogs to check out, and this one is one of my new TOPS. I have linked the blog on the side of this one, and also wanted to paste one of the blogger's recipes on here (in case you don't go to the blog yourself you could try out one of the recipes below). They both sound YUMMY!!

Dog Costume

Now, there are some cute dog costumes (for Halloween, PLEASE DO NOT DRESS YOUR DOG UP OUTSIDE OF A COSTUME HOLIDAY :) ) like a Yoda outfit they sell at Target, especially for a fat dog, like a bulldog, but I think this one may just take the cake, what do you think??


I just had to post this one for Ryan, A PANDA BULLDOG?!

He needs to go on the PANDA TOURS with you guys too!! :)

Bond's Ball

I voted for this!! Whoo hoo!! The news station that I watch in the morning had a story about this a week or so ago and you could go to a website and vote. What am I talking about you may ask? Check out this article about what Marc Ecko (the winner of the 756th ball) will be doing to it.

The article starts by saying:

The ball Barry Bonds hit for his record-breaking 756th home run will be branded with an asterisk and sent to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

Fashion designer Marc Ecko, who bought the ball in an online auction, set up a Web site for fans to vote on the ball's fate, and today announced the decision to brand it won out over the other options -- sending it to Cooperstown unblemished or launching it into space.

Check out the rest of the article here.

Caffeine, Shamffeine

So today is the 5th day without caffeine (in the form of soda, I'm not sure if it has snuck into my diet elsewhere). I am still feeling fine, no headaches, no nothing. I have to say I have been slightly more sleepy in the morning, since I normally drink about 20ounces of Diet Mountain Dew by 9am, but maybe it is because I am coming in to work an hour earlier than normal too. I am pretty proud of myself, seeing that I would have considered myself slightly 'addicted' to diet sodas a week ago. I am thinking that I might try liking tea sometime soon. I know that sounds silly, but I have never really liked it before, but maybe I can find a flavor that I like... Or maybe I'll just stick with agua.

Cara & Rob

Congrats Cara and Rob!! Their wedding is on Saturday (but since I fly out on Friday morning I wasn't sure when I would be able to post it)!! Cara is my cousin, and Rob is my soon to be cousin-in-law (does that even exist, hehe). Here is their engagement picture (and I'm hoping to post some pictures from the actual wedding when I get back).

Congrats you two!!

One Hit Wonder

Today is One Hit Wonder Day! Time for you to honor all the recording artists who had a single hit. There are just sooooo many great ones out there, I don't know if I can pick my favorite. I am not really sure how you celebrate this "holiday" but I guess I would recommend listening to your favorite jam!!

Do you have a favorite One Hit Wonder?

Shout Out

Shout out to Bonin for checking in on my blog. She sent me an email today and said : I know I told you this before but I do enjoy your blog, especially when I am at work, because when I dont get e-mail I can almost always expect some crazy story from you to keep me entertained for the time being!! Glad I bring entertainment to someone :)

HAVE A TERRIFIC TUESDAY BONIN (and everyone else checking in) & THANKS FOR READING!

Look A Like?

So I got this in an email today from a friend. She said : Amanda Bynes looks so much like you. It was so weird watching her- I thought of you the entire movie because I thought her style and everything was so like yours!!! She went to go see Syndey White (a spin off of Snow White) and was reminded of me. Do you see a resemblance?

I don't see it, but thanks! :)

Library Books

I decided that I enjoy the library. I have gotten back into reading lately (maybe because Ryan and I have been out of town at different times so I have picked it up to busy myself, maybe I just want to make my brain bigger, who knows). On my lunch hour today I went and returned a book that I finished yesterday, 90 minutes in Heaven. It was a good book. I picked up Water for Elephants. I don't know much about it, other than it is on a lot of the best seller lists right now. I glanced at the back of the book on the drive back to work (don't worry, while I was stopped at lights and whatnot, I'm not THAT BAD of a driver) and the gist I got was it is a novel based in the 1930s, someone in the circus, something about the Great Depression (told you, it was just a glance). I think this will probably be the book I take back with me on the plane this weekend, seeing as it is about 350 pages and I don't think I will read all of them during the week. Any suggestions after I finish this one?

Congrats Ry

Today is Ryan's first day at Sole Technologies!! Congrats Ry!! Can't wait to hear about it!! Lucky him, on his first day he gets to go watch a movie and GET PAID FOR IT :) [One of the guys at Sole worked on the documentary The 11th Hour with Leonardo DeCaprio so they are going to see it as a company I guess].

I'm so proud Peter!!


Glad to see the Wolverines back up and fighting!! Check out the article on ESPN about their latest win!!

Penn State knew exactly what Michigan was going to do.
Mike Hart to the left, right and up the middle.
The 10th-ranked Nittany Lions couldn't stop him Saturday, or JoePa's longest losing streak against one school.
Hart ran for 153 yards on a career-high 44 carries and scored early in the fourth quarter, leading Michigan to a 14-9 win over Penn State.
Even though the Nittany Lions stacked their defense to stop Hart, Michigan coach Lloyd Carr didn't hesitate to keep giving him the ball.
Two weeks after its season seemed doomed, Michigan has new life.
Penn State has lost nine straight games to Michigan, the longest winning streak by one team over the famed coach and almost doubling the second-best run against him.

No Soda

So today starts my third day without soda. It all started Saturday. I was out of soda and was actually super tired so didn't feel like going to the store and getting any. (I think I was up for a total of about 6 hours Saturday, most of which to watch the Michigan game) Sunday I thought I would go to the grocery store to get soda if I got a headache (since I drink A LOT of soda, I often will get caffeine headaches, or lack of caffeine headaches I guess they would be considered). No headache Sunday, so I didn't go to the store. I have since decided I think I am going to try and give it up. I drink a lot of it, and hence spend a good chunk of change on it. I think I am going to try and not drink soda and see how long I can go. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE DIET SODA, but I think for right now I am just going to take a break from it...

Padres vs. Rockies

So Mom and I went to the Padres game on Friday. The game ended up going into 14 INNINGS!! It kept us on the edge of our seats, even though I think there were a total of 10 or 12 hits. We even got to do a 14th Inning Stretch!! How fun! Well, I put up the pictures (I think there were only 20 or so). I think we are only a half a game ahead for the Wild Card. Let's go Padres!! BEAT THE GIANTS (that's the series we have for the next 3 nights)!!

Go Blue!

Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu'ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan
the leaders and best
Hail! to the victors valiant
Hail! to the conqu'ring heroes
Hail! Hail! to Michigan,
the champions of the West!



Wow. So last night mom and I were having a blast, ghost hunting and everything and finally headed back to my apartment. When we got there my key wouldn't go into my lock to unlock the door (which happened before about 8 months ago and I had my land lord replace my lock back then). I decided to try and force it in (it has been 'crunchy' for about a week or so, so I thought it was just getting tougher and I had to force it in a little harder than normal). I couldn't get the key in, so I decided to put my foot up to the door and try to push it in with my foot (I don't know, I guess I figured it would be more force than the palm of my hand). I pushed with my foot and then SNAP. After the 'snap' the rest of my keys fell and hit the ground. After inspecting what happened, the key had broke off into the lock (it looks like the key was bending and I didn't realize it so with the more force it just bent and broke it off). This was at about 9pm. The first thing we did was GASP! Then we knocked on the on site apartment manager's apartment... She wasn't home. Then I called the landlord, no answer, so I left a voicemail. Then we decided we would try and see if somewhere could make a key out of the two pieces. We went down to Sears, but it was closed. Then we went to Lowe's. They gave me a little hope, saying that "Ed" could work magic and if anyone could help it would be him... No luck. Apparently the machine that they use sucks in the key and the piece would have just gotten stuck in their machine. We went to the customer service desk to call a 24 hour locksmith (all the while I am getting more and more upset). As we were calling the first place my landlord called back. I told him what had happened and he went on about "Well, don't you have a spare key (which even if I did, wouldn't have helped because the key would NOT go in the lock)" and when I told him I only had what he gave me he went into a spiel about how he wasn't sure if this was a landlord or tenant issue. Grrrrr. So he decided to drive out and bring a spare he had. We left Lowe's to meet him back at my apartment. In the meantime the on site manager had come back home so when we got back we knocked again and asked if she had a spare. She went through all of her keys and none of them worked... Either because the locks had been replaced or because THE LOCK IS A PIECE OF CRAP AND EVEN IF SHE HAD THE RIGHT KEY IT WOULDN'T GO IN ANYWAY! So as she is trying all of the keys she had, the landlord came. My mom made a snippy remark to him as he was walking up the stairs about 'putting in a working lock' and that started the sass. He then asked how long this was being difficult and I told him that it was about a week or so, and he commented about how he wasn't sure why, since it had been working for over a year without any problems. I reminded him about him replacing the lock once already since I had been there and then my mom said something. He commented about how he didn't like the sass she gave him and she told him she didn't appreciate the way he spoke to me on the phone as if his craptastic lock was my fault (she didn't use craptastic, but come on, it was a terrible lock). He got out all of his keys and guess what THEY WOULDN'T GO IN. Imagine that! Anyway, he finally forced one in (after probably 5 minutes of trying different keys and whatnot) and got the apartment unlocked. He kept fidgeting with the lock and saw that YES it was NOT working properly. He said he would replace the locks and give me a new key, which he did after about 30 minutes of playing with the door. So, at lunch today I will go to Home Depot and get a spare key made (which I am sure will be worthless since I am assuming this lock is also going to break and I will get a new key again). Here is a picture of the key... Snapped right in two.

Well anyway, the drama is over (at least I hope) and my key works, so Praise God! Thanks Mom for trying to keep me calm during the debacle.

Pad Squad

Let's Go Padres!! My mom and I will be going down to Petco to watch the Padres game tonight. We are hoping that this storm stays away till after she leaves tomorrow morning, but I think we will bring our umbrella's just in case. The guys at work gave me the tickets that we normally give to our vendors as 'thank yous' and they are AWESOME seats. So, THANKS CASS!!! We will ride the Trolley down to the game, which should be another experience for Mom, hehe. The Padres have won their last 7 games, so I am hoping that they make it EIGHT STRAIGHT tonight!!



The new photos are up from the past couple nights (Coronado and Old Town). Check 'em out if you get a minute. PS I am taking a lot of flower pictures these days because I am making a photo album for my Grandma's for Christmas (and I also want to get cool nature shots, because I have been thinking about maybe trying to put a book out one day of my photography, or maybe just publishing a couple pictures in National Geographic or something like that).

Enjoy them (and let me know if you see any ghosts in the Old Town shots)!!

Thursday, September 20, 2007


I think I am going to like this new show: In 'Pushing Daisies,' a humble baker is able to resurrect the deceased. Word is, this new ABC series has a lot of life. It starts October 3rd, and comes in on a channel that my TV gets, so I think I'll be tuning in :)

The Whaley House

Mom and I will be checking out The Whaley House tonight. Here is what their website says about the historic (and HAUNTED) house. Hopefully I won't get too nervous (since I have to admit, I am quite a scaredy cat)!! Mom likes to watch the Haunted Shows, so I thought it would be great for her to see it up close and personal (too bad I have to go too, hehe, just kidding, I ain't sceeerd).

Few houses in San Diego are as historically important as the Whaley House. In addition to being the Whaley Family home, it housed a granary, the County Court House, San Diego's first commercial theater, various businesses including Thomas Whaley's own general store, a ballroom, a billiard hall, school, and polling place. Significant events, such as the siezure of the court documents and records in 1871, and the suicide of Violet Whaley in 1885 profoundly affected Thomas and Anna Whaley. These events, as well as the hangings which occurred on the property before the house was constructed, have suffused the Whaley House with an air of mystery and added to its reputation as something more than just California State Historic Landmark #65.

According to the Travel Channel's America's Most Haunted, the house is the number one most haunted house in the United States. The alleged hauntings of the Whaley House have been reported on numerous other television programs and been written up in countless publications and books since the house first opened as a museum in 1960. Although we cannot state positively that the Whaley House is really haunted, the voluminous documentation of paranormal occurances at the site makes a compelling case. But, if there are ghosts at the Whaley House, who are they and why are they here?

The earliest documented ghost at the Whaley House is "Yankee Jim." James (aka Santiago) Robinson was convicted of attempted grand larceny in San Diego in 1852, and hanged on a gallows off the back of a wagon on the site where the house now stands. The local newspaper reported that he "kept his feet in the wagon as long as possible, but was finally pulled off. He swung back and forth like a pendulum until he strangled to death." Although Thomas Whaley had been a spectator at the execution, he did not let it disuade him from buying the property a few years later and building a home for his family there. According to the San Diego Union, "soon after the couple and their children moved in, heavy footsteps were heard moving about the house. Whaley described them as sounding as though they were made by the boots of a large man. Finally he came to the conclusion that these unexplained footfalls were made by Yankee Jim Robinson." Another source states that Lillian Whaley, the Whaleys' youngest daughter who lived in the house until 1953, "had been convinced the ghost of "Yankee Jim" haunted the Old House." A visitor to the museum in 1962 mentioned that "the ghost had driven her family from their visit there more than 60 years [earlier], her mother was unnerved by the phantom walking noise and the strange way the windows unlatched and flew up."

Many visitors to the house have reported encountering Thomas Whaley himself. The late June Reading, former curator of the museum, said, "We had a little girl perhaps 5 or 6 years old who waved to a man she said was standing in the parlor. We couldn't see him. But often children's sensitivity is greater than an adult's." However, many adults have reported seeing the apparition of Mr. Whaley, usually on the upper landing. One said he was "clad in frock coat and pantaloons, the face turned away from her, so she could not make it out. Suddenly it faded away."

The specter of Anna Whaley has also been reported, usually in the downstairs rooms or in the garden. In 1964, Mrs. Whaley's floating, drifting spirit appeared to [television personality Regis] Philbin. "All of a sudden I noticed something on the wall," Philbin reported. "There was something filmy white, it looked like an apparition of some kind, I got so excited I couldn't restrain myself! I flipped on the [flash]light and nothing was there but a portrait of Anna Whaley, the long-dead mistress of the house."

Other visitors have described seeing or sensing the presence of a woman in the courtroom. "I see a small figure of a woman," one visitor said, "who has a swarthy complexion. She is wearing a long full skirt, reaching to the floor. The skirt appears to be a calico or gingham, small print. She has a kind of cap on her head, dark hair and eyes and she is wearing gold hoops in her pierced ears. She seems to stay in this room, lives here, I gather." None of the Whaleys fit this description, but the house was rented out to numerous tenants over the years. Perhaps the mysterious woman in the courtroom was one of these.

Another presence reported by visitors and docents is that of a young girl, who is usually found in the dining room. Psychic Sybil Leek encountered this spirit during a visit in the 1960s. "It was a long-haired girl," Sybil said. "She was very quick, you know, in a longish dress. She went to the table in this room and I went to the chair." Urban legend has it that this is the ghost of a playmate of the Whaley children who accidentally broke her neck on a low-hanging clothesline in the backyard, and whose name was either Annabel or Carrie Washburn. There are no historic records of any child dying this way at the Whaley House; nor is there record of any family named Washburn residing in San Diego at the time. It is believed that the legend was started by a one-time employee of the Whaley House, in an effort to add to the house's mystique.

Even animals aren't left out of the singular occurances. A parapsychologist reported he saw a spotted dog, like a fox terrier, that ran down the hall with his ears flapping and into the dining room. The dog, he said, was an apparition. When they lived in the house, the Whaley's owned a terrier named Dolly Varden.

The Whaley House stands silently watching over San Diego Avenue as it has done for a century and a half. Every day visitors come from around the world to tour the historic museum. It contains so much history within its walls, that even the non-believer will enjoy the tour. For believers and sceptics alike, the house draws them back time and again, in search of those elusive ghosts. As Regis Philbin once said, "You know a lot of people pooh-pooh it because they can't see it. But there was something going on in that house."


Congrats to Ryan!! He signed a contract with Sole Technology yesterday!! They are up in Lake Forest, CA (which I think the commute is probably like 45-60 minutes). He is going to be working as a Jr. Designer in their web department for all their brands. It should be a great opportunity and I am sure he will learn a lot. Here is the link to their site if anyone wants to check it out...


PS. Thanks to all of you who have been praying for Ryan's job situation.

They are predicting WEATHER for Friday and Saturday... Uh oh. I got on the weather website ( and wanted to check out the 10-day (seeing that I just got Mom and I Padre tickets for Friday night's game). And I saw this warning:

Special Weather Statement

1100 AM PDT WED SEP 19 2007






Of course... Just our luck... I know we need the rain, but I also know that I would like to go to the Padres game and I would also like my mom (and everyone else flying this weekend out of SD) to have a nice flight... I guess we will just have to see.


I love pictures (if you can't tell I take a LOT of pictures)!! I got this email with a TON of cool pics, so I thought I would post them.
