Subject:Thinking...
Time:11:38 am.
Mood: pensive.
I've seemed to have vanished for a couple of days, not that you've noticed because of course who would read this?
Well truth is I've been working on my book (which is not a good thing when you have a husband to attend to). I think he had reached a point, where enough was enough. Maybe it was because I wouldn't cook him dinner last week, since I was busy typing away. Anyway the other night, he came upstairs into the library where I was sitting at my very cluttered desk typing away, and placed his hands on the typewriter almost scaring the wits off me. He looked at me sternly and I just looked at him and said "What?"
"Don't play coy with me, Evy. You need to take a break. You've locked yourself in here long enough."
With that said he took me hand and just pulled me out of the chair. I just looked at him with one of my surprised looks. I tried to explain to him that I really needed to finish the book, I was almost done with another chapter, but he wouldn't hear it. He took the master house key and locked the door so I wouldn't be able to get in. It's times like these I wish I had made a copy of those keys to myself. Foolish, me. But my darling husband seeing that I needed a break took me out to dinner that night and we had a great time. We actually went dancing and let me say my husband may not dance much from time to time but when he does he's just a hell of a great dancer. I was really surprised. When we arrived back home, let's just say he made me forget the whole typewriter incident;)

I just recieved the post this morning and there was a letter for me from the museum. It seems they want me to be a guest speaker this Friday. It sounds great and I am honored that they want me to do it, but I'm having second thoughts. I'm not much of a speaker in front of hundreds of people. I mean just to have all those eyes staring at you, it's nerve racking! I still have to call them at somepoint this week to confirm that I'm going.
What to do...what to do....I'm acting like such a ninny over this..
Well Jonathan arrived late as usual and all bent as expected but at least he didn't have any bruises on him this time, thankfully!

I'm going to make me a sanger in a few. Perhaps I'll make one for him as well. He's still in our bedroom, poor dear is all shagged out.

Time:8:43 pm.
Mood: tired.
I'm just so drained. I stayed up all night working on my book. I'm up to chapter 3 so far,
I don't have a deadline yet so I guess I can take my time.

Well as I was writing last night around 3 a.m., and could hear some noise coming from downstairs to find my husband draging my poor brother inside. He was just a mess. Needless to say I had to tend to my brother's wounds with the help of my husband. I didn't yell at Jonathan though nor did I at Rick. After all men will be men, right?

Today has been busy since I was working some more on the book. I really need to take a break though. I woke up this morning after only three hours of sleep, and had such a headache. Rick of course slept through the morning and almost into the afternoon recovering from last night.

I think I'll listen to the radio tonight and try and relax....

Time:9:06 pm.
Mood: distressed.
Well today has been busy for me, since I decided to start working on my book again. I've even come up with a title for it, "Curse of the Pharaohs: Myth and Mystery"
Catchy, isn't it? I'm only up to chapter one at the moment, bloody writer's block. I'm hoping writing in here helps me get rid of it.

I just love this song, it's so melonchaloy with the sound of the guitar....

Well I finally downloaded aim so for anyone out there that would like to reach me my screen name is as follows: ljevyoconnell

Rick has totally left me alone so I could get some writing done, isn't that sweet of him? He actually understands me somewhat, though sometimes I wish he wouldn't leave. He actually went out with Jonathan tonight, which worries me a bit. I can only imagine him being in a bar somewhere just drinking and chatting with the regulars or worse getting lured into playing poker with my brother and his "buddies" who are just filthy, rude cads. I'm just hoping the phone doesn't ring tonight with the sound of "Help me, I'm in jail!" coming from my brother. Time will tell....

The trip the to ice cream shop yesterday was great.I got a fudge sundae and he got a chocolate shake.
Afterwards we ended up going to the market and I had never seen such a line when we headed to the checkout. I never knew London could be so full of people in such a small place. Well after waiting almost over 2 hours in line, we headed home and called it a night, as my husband would say.

Today has gone by pretty well, I've been doing the landury mostly and Rick stepped out for awhile but he should be back soon. I think I'm going to try my hand at making some lemonade now since it's getting hot and it would go well with this weather.

Well ta,ta for now my fellow readers ;)

All is right at the O'Connell household, at last. Alex called from the school the other
day and we had such a lovely chat. He's going to join the school's football team this
year, which I think is just grand.

Rick and I have finally made up and are talking again, here's how it started..
I was really surprised the other night by my husband of all people, since he rare does things out of the ordinary. I was in the living room reading a book, when he came up behind me and blind folded me! At first I asked him, what was he up to but he said "You'll see". He took the book out of my hand and carried me, I didn't know where at first because it seemed like forever but then I heard the car start and knew where I was. I then asked him where was he taking me and he just replied again "You'll see".
Now I was curious and excited at the same time. I don't know how long I was in the car , but finally I heard the engine stop and Rick's door open. Then my door was open and Rick carried me out. I insisted for the blind fold to come off since I was wondering where I was, he said "Soon". Before I know it, I feel him setting me down on the ground and he takes off my blind fold. The first thing I see is a picnic blanket neatly laid out with a basket full of food, two lit candles, a bottle of red wine and a small vase with a red rose. It was just amazingly sweet. I was so overwelmed with the surprise that I couldn't help but cry! Rick just smiled and dried my tear gently with this hand. It was a great surprise picnic. He is just the sweetest man alive, I just love my husband. He actually forgave and said he understood my passion about Egypt but that it would be nice to settle down for awhile and be "normal". I'm starting to think now, that is I can have more sweet moments like those with my husband, my career comes in second. Maybe it's time for that change, I should just put all that tomb raiding behind me and just live happily with Rick.

I can feel my love for him grow stronger with every passing day, and I know he feels the same way. I just love being in love right now, it's just the greatest feeling.

Well I better go now, Rick is taking me out to the ice cream shop:)

I recieved a package in the post today from the United States, it's just been sitting there all day since I haven't opened it yet.

Had dinner alone yet again since he still doesn't want ot talk but I will give him some more time.

men can't live with them, can't live without them.

Good night....

Mood: awake.
I stopped by the museum late afternoon yesterday and everything was so different.
It's like they had redecorated and relocated all the exhibits. I shouldn't be that surprised after all I haven't been there in ages!

Afterwards, I arrived home and cooked some dinner. I thought Rick was going to join me but instead of sitting down at the table, he just glared at me and took his jacket from the rack nearby and just left.

I don't know what time he got back since I went straight to sleep afterwards. I didn't want to spend another night crying, since it's solves nothing at this point. I just miss the old times and how we used to be. He was so happy and sweet when we were together but of course I don't blame him after all I did trick him into going to Egypt....

I just hope he wants to talk today. Well I'm going to make some tea and just think...

Time:3:13 pm.
Mood: bored.
I know I have such weird taste in music but this reminds me of Egypt and all the good
times we had there.

Well the tea was great, just sitting by the window and watching the rain fall down and trickle down the bay window in the foyer. Ah yes isn't life just grand?

Hey I found out today thatBrendan has a livejournal as well as the actress that plays me.
Amazing, isn't?

Well the book I tried to read really didn't catch my interest do I just left it on the library table, so I'm just sitting here writing and looking out the window.

It is just so nice and quiet, Alex is once again at the boarding school. He came with us to Egypt on vacation and I noticed that he was much more well behaved since the last time I had seen him. I guess that boarding school is good for him.

Wow it is pin drop quiet not a phone call or anything. If this rain ever stops I think I might just visit the museum.

Ta,ta

Subject:Hello again
Time:1:00 pm.
My! It's been so long, since I've written in this thing. I've been so busy with taking care of Alex and going on digs, that time just totally escaped me I must say!

So how has everyone been? I know I've definately missed a lot during my absence and I'm sorry.

Well it's another typical rainy day here in London. Nothing but rain and thunder,which just doesn't compare to Egyptian weather which I miss in a way. We just got back last week and it was just amazing! I'm so proud that I was able to "get" Rick to go along though I kind of deceived him, but nevertheless I think he will forgive me with time, even though right now he's not talking to me.... I hope we can work this out.

Well Jonathan is out and I'm sure he's probably spending his share of the treasure that we found as I type this.

I'm going to read a good book and drink some nice warm tea. What do you all think of my new icon? I thought it was time for a change :0)

Subject:gasps
Time:11:05 am.
Mood: confused.
I didn't know Jude
has an LJ! I added him to my friends list.


Lunch yesterday was great with my old friend, she hung out last night at my home and we actually went to a club (something I rarely do). Rick came with us of course and a merry time was had by all. I woke up with a huge headache this morning, maybe I shouldn't have drank so much last night? I remember I was dancing on the floor with him and then my memory just flashes to waking up this morning. Maybe I blacked out?
Well he was gone when I woke up, he did leave a note by his pillow saying he'd be home later today and that he loved me.


Guess I'll have to ask him what I did last night since I don't recall much. I hope
I didn't make an ass of myself. >_

Subject:how time flies
Time:1:10 pm.
Mood: happy.
I'm sorry I haven't posted in awhile, almost a month to be exact, but life has been
busy, busy. Those dam Bembridge Scholars have kept me busy with a lot of work at the museum. I can't believe I missed Gwen's birthday!


Some changes have taken place since I last wrote, Jonathan has moved out.
I just couldn't believe it because it happened so fast. He just left and moved into a near by flat on the next street. He said he needed to get away. That's good for him, I guess now he'll have to clean up his own messes.
We had to send Alex to boarding school, because he was just getting really out of control and now the house is nice and quiet. It hasn't been this way,hmmm... I can't recall since the last time so I guess it's never really been like this. It's just heavenly having the house all to ourselves. :)

Well I better go now, I have a lunchon with Neferkare, she's an old friend that I met in Egypt a long time ago. I haven't seen her in ages and it'll be great catching up on old times. Bye, bye

Subject:Busy like a bumble bee
Time:3:24 pm.
Mood: content.
With the taking care fo the manor and going back and forth to work,
I haven't had much time to write. I'm still alive and well and so is everyone else
in the family. Alex has been behaving (thank god). I guess Rick's little
talk with him last week really helped out. I'm using one of the computer's here
at The British Museum to write this. I'm on lunch break so no time is being wasted.
I for one hate to waste time.

I've been busy checking out the different displays all morning, making
sure everything is in proper order and so far it has been. I feel a headache coming
on now.


I'm really dreading going back home tonight because I have to
do more house work. Being rich doesn't always mean having maids
around all the time to do the dirty work..

Subject:Being a parent is tough!
Time:12:38 am.
Mood: tired.
It started out rather normal, really. I took Alex into the new wing, when someone
fetched me saying I had a call. I told Alex to be good for me while I was away.
Needless to say after I got off the phone and returned, I found my son playing
around with one of the artifacts like it was a toy. He would have surely broken it
if I hadn't arrived on time. I got so mad at him. I started yelling at my own son
right there infront of the visitors. Causing a scene I then grabbed Alex by the ear and
took him into my office where I phoned Rick. Alex didn't even seem to care what he had done, stating that he didn't know that he couldn't touch the objects. He knows
better though, we've taught him that. So, Alex went home with Rick and I was left alone at the Museum.

Being a mom sure is tough! At dinner tonight, Rick and I had to send Alex to his room without the rest of his dinner or desert for that matter because he snapped at us
when we asked him a simple question, he even called me a "fucking bitch".
I don't know where he's learning that type of language from..but for a ten year old boy
to know such words is just well not good. Rick thinks it's the children at school, but
I just don't know. I guess we'll have to be looking into it.

Subject:Ughhh....
Time:1:08 am.
Mood: sleepy.
::walks into room::
Just my luck that Jonathan decides to come home at this hour. I really can't stand it anymore what kind of example is he setting for his nephew? I feel like yelling
at him right now! I was going to let him have it too when Rick stopped me,
saying he would talk to him about it later (or rather when my brother gets sober).

I'm going to have a cup of tea now and go upstairs for bed. Tea is a very
relaxing drink, you should all try it sometime.

Well tomorrow is another day at work, I'm going to be taking Alex with me
since he's interested in seeing the new "Egyptian Wing" that is going to open
tomorrow. It should be interesting. I'll keep you all posted!

night...

Subject:sad...
Time:11:51 pm.
Mood: sad.
there has to be a better way to describe this, but I'm still to shock to think
at the moment. All those lives lost just like that.... I couldn't believe my eyes
at first but it was true....

I got a bump on the side of my head today. I was being tickled by Rick when
I laughed so hard that I hit my head on the wall. I snapped at him big time.
Well it did hurt a lot! It stills does...
But it's not as horrfic and bad as what happened today. I hope the government
gets that Bin Laden character....

Such evilness in our society. I can't believe some of us can be so unhuman.

Well good night and the victims and families oftoday's tradgey are in my prayers...

Subject:Talking to the walls...
Time:12:35 am.
Mood: awake.
That's just something I do at times when I feel alone.
It really helps though, (and no I am not mentally ill). I woke up today
and decided to get some Elvis Presely wallpaper, so I did and plastered it all over
a wall section in my little corner of the house. No one knows about it yet,
since afterwords I locked the room.

I'm so tired though after such a long day. It actually snowed today, tons of it just
fell from the sky about 4 feet or so. Alex dragged Rick outside to play in the snow, so
after five mintues they ran back in as I was reading a book in th living room. Rick said it was 'too dam cold' to be out there in the first place.

Oh, I may be appearing on Mister Kilborn's show at some point in October but it's not official yet.

Well good night everyone I'm off to bed with my tea...

Subject:Ah, love
Time:1:26 am.
Mood: loved.
I have written in about two days, but there's an excuse for that.
I've just been so busy ever since Rick came home from Egypt, and yes
he did surprise me at work with a sweet boutique of red roses with a small
card inside saying, 'Missed you, glad to be home'. That was just so sweet of him,
I really hadn't expected it. It made my day a whole lot brighter.

We went out to dinner tonight and it was just perfect. Afterwords we went for
a little stroll at the nearby park, and we just sat down on a bench and watched the
stars glitter in the sky and the moon. It was just heaven, being there with him. It
felt really peaceful. We talked about anything and everything. One of the things that
I really just love about Rick are his eyes. I couldn't help but notice tonight that his
blue eyes seemed a little green. It changes all the time from blue to green, maybe he has blue/green eyes? He was just such a gentleman when we waked home putting
his jacket over my bare shoulders. We haven't been out like that in a long time, but
I'm glad we did.

I'm just so bum tried right now writing this thing but I'm content with the thoughts
and memories I have of tonight. We made the most sweetest love tonight....
Ah, yes love is the sweetest thing. I feel like I'm falling in love with him all over
again.

Subject:It was foggy
Time:1:22 am.
Mood: chipper.
For most of the day anyway.
I played some chess with Alex and he won (actually I let him win since
I was distracted with my thoughts).
Rick did manage to call tonight, he said he would arrive early tomorrow
morning around 9 a.m. . Which is a total bugger since I'll be at work. There's this
very important meeting tomorrow at the British Museum, and I am not allowed
to miss it, or so says the Bembridge Scholars. So that means
I'll have to see him later in the afternoon, unless he surprises me.
:looks hopeful: But of course time will tell.
I told Alex that if he wanted he didn't have to go to school tomorrow, since his
father was arriving. He, like the little boy that he is jumped at the chance to
not go tomorrow. He'll be in Jonathan's care and that's something I'm not too
fond off since the last time I left my brother in charge of Alex, to just go
on a nice dinner with my husband, he was teaching my boy how to cheat
at poker. Rick wasn't pleased at all and neither was I. Since it'll be daylight,
I don't think both of them can get into too much trouble.

I want to say hi to Mr. Slater and Mr. Affleck.

Subject:Cup of tea
Time:2:08 am.
Mood: amused.
I'm here relaxing with my cup of tea, after such a stressful day.
It's good to be safe and warm at home. Alex is asleep and Jonathan
just left, saying he wouldn't be back until the morning. He's
probably going to drink all night with that new "steady girlfriend", Cynthia.

I've never really spoken to her since I only see her when she knocks
on the door for my brother and just waits there for him. From the little
that I've seen I'd say she's a total ditz. *Just sighs* Boy, does
my brother know how to pick them.

Rick didn't call today but I forgive him. He must be pretty busy down there.
*sighs some more* I hate feeling alone...well I'm not really alone but still
it just isn't the same. Well tomorrow is another work day, which is good cause when
I keep my mind on something else this lonelyness just goes away...

Good night

Oh yeah one more little thing, some of these LJ's are so funny!
Keep it up guys ;)
