Puppy Love

Here is the soon to be newest addition to our home! We love her already :) We can pick her up later this week and both of us are soooo excited!

I finally managed to get to the post office tonight. Before they closed. It was the post master (mistress?) that was working. She told me how sorry she was that I wasn't able to pick up my package again this week. I was like hmm? She goes on to tell me that the other lady told her I was there at 5:10 and how she felt bad that 2 days in a row I wasn't able to get my stuff.

Now I wasn't going to say a word. But after hearing that this lady went to her boss and told her all about me (no doubt making me sound bad and rude I'd bet). It pissed me off a bit. So I told her the truth about what time I got there. She was not impressed. I told her I wasn't very happy about it, but I dont' want to cause a problem. Either way, I guess it's dumb to do something like that, then lie to try to cover your butt.

Moving on....

Chris will be home tomorrow night!!! I miss him!!!!

We're getting a puppy! I'm so excited. I found one online that I want to go see. They won't be ready until next week, but we are going to go see them on Saturday and pick one out. I'm sooooooo excited!!!!!!

I'm glad tomorrow is Friday!!

I'm so MAD!!!

I had a package at the post office that came yesterday. I was too late to pick it up, that was around 5:20 or so and it closes at 5.

I left work 10 minutes early to get to the post office before it closed today...I got there at 4:58 and it was ALREADY CLOSED!!!!!!

I knocked on the door anyway and she told me she had shut off the computer already. I told her, that I had left work early to get there on time today, (because I missed it yesterday) and it wasn't even 5 yet. She says to me, oh well can you come tomorrow? I tell her no. She says oh, sorry and closes the door on me!

WTF? How am I ever supposed to get my fricken mail!!! I have 2 packages waiting for me at the post office and I can't even pick them up. I'm pissed.

I totally had a crappy day....I got this joke's so how my day was going....

Things Got Ya Down? Well Then, Consider These . . .

In a hospital's Intensive Care Unit, patients always died in the same bed, on Sunday morning, at about 11:00 am, regardless of their medical condition. This puzzled the doctors and some even thought it had something to do with the super natural. No one could solve the mystery as to why the deaths occurred around 11:00 AM Sunday, so a worldwide team of experts was assembled to investigate the cause of the incidents. The next Sunday morning, a few minutes before 11:00 AM all of the doctors and nurses nervously waited outside the ward to see for themselves what the terrible phenomenon was all about. Some were holding wooden crosses, prayer books, and other holy objects to ward off the evil spirits. Just when the clock struck 11:00 , Pookie Johnson, the part-time Sunday sweeper , entered the ward and unplugged the life support system so he could use the vacuum cleaner.

Still Having a Bad Day????

The average cost of rehabilitating a seal after the Exxon Valdez Oil spill in Alaska was $80,000.00. At a special ceremony, two of the most expensively saved animals were being released back into the wild amid cheers and applause from onlookers. A minute later, in full view, a killer whale ate them both.

Still think you are having a Bad Day????

A woman came home to find her husband in the kitchen shaking frantically, almost in a dancing frenzy, with some kind of wire running from his waist towards the electric kettle. Intending to jolt him away from the deadly current, she whacked him with a handy plank of wood, breaking his arm in two places. Up to that moment, he had been happily listening to his Walkman.

Are Ya OK Now? - No?

Two animal rights defenders were protesting the cruelty of sending pigs to a slaughterhouse in Bonn , Germany . Suddenly, all two thousand pigs broke loose and escaped through a broken fence, stampeding madly. The two helpless protesters were trampled to death.

What?!? STILL having a Bad Day????

Iraqi terrorist Khay Rahnajet didn't pay enough postage on a letter bomb. It came back with 'Return to Sender' stamped on it. Forgetting it was the bomb, he opened it and was blown to bits. God is Good!

Instead of cleaning up like I'm supposed to today, I'm...:
- Playing on Facebook.
- Watching TV.
- Blogging.
- Text messaging Chris.
- Wandering from room to room.
- Thinking about my eliptical and how I should do it today.

And many other things. Really all I need to do it tidy a bit and finish the laundry. It would take me less than an hour, but I swear I have no motivation to do it. I just don't want to. But on the other hand when I'm doing all this other crap, I feel bad, because I know I need to finish my stuff. I should just get off here and do it...maybe I will.

Chris is working. Sheesh, break up is pretty well here. I'm a bit scared for this year. Well to be honest, I'm worried every year, but this year we are starting break up with our savings account down from what it normally is. We'll be fine, but I hope we walk out of it with some savings left!!! Ouch.

My book party for Epicure is doing well. The lady hosting the party was thinking it would sell $250 (which is basically minimum to get any free stuff), but I went and saw her yesterday and she thinks she'll end up with a $500 order!!!! yay! This means $125 for me, with virtually no effort and no work! Yay! It closes tomorrow, so I'll know for sure by then. She was over $300 on Saturday morning.

We've started painting in the house. Slowly. Chris painted the doors white before he left. At first I was a bit worried they wouldn't look good, but they do! They look great! When he gets home, we are hoping to replace the trim around all the doors and paint it white too. Then we are going to paint the spare bathroom a sand color and replace the trim on the floor and around the door too. It's crappy looking and won't paint well. It's not even real wood! It will be a dramatic improvement.

I was talking to my MIL yesterday and we were talking about them coming for a visit this year. We were going to send them money to come, but so far we dont have the $ to spare. We are still hoping it can happen. Chris's Dad piped up in the background that he wanted to come here to go hunting with Chris or come for Christmas this year. Chris's mom said she didn't want to travel in the snow and cold. So, we are going to still try to save up about $500 to send to them and hope they can get here this year! Fall would be better for me, that way I can take a week off when they come. It would be nice for them to see the house.

Well maybe I'd better go finish my list, I just remembered I still have to water the plants too, and write up a cover letter for a service job that I want to apply for. I'm totally qualified and it sounds similar to what I'm doing now. Keep your fingers crossed.

will Friday ever come?

I'm so ready for this week to be over. Yay for Friday tomorrow! I even get to leave early!! I was supposed to get to the post office to pick up my Epicure order today, but the parts jerk had to go to an appointment after work. So I'm leaving early tomorrow so I can get it. I'm very excited! It is my first official order as a consultant.

I went to bingo last night. To work. I met some nice people, so that's great. I also learned that I am the only volunteer that is not on the hall committee and of course they tried to recruit me! lol. Anyhow, so apparently you have to have lots of $ to be a volunteer....or something stupid like that. More just that the volunteers are the ones that have $. The ones I was with last night live in the newest, largest homes in my village. And I'm totally not joking. Our house is like a hotel room compared. At least there not pretentious or anything, very nice people. I think I might volunteer more for other things.

I am, however, exhausted today. It was a late night last night and I don't feel so well. I think I'm tired. Chris is still working, yay! I'm thankful. Spring break up is looming ahead and it makes me nervous....

Today is the 1 year anniversary of my uncle's passing. I miss him. I spoke to him today, said a little prayer. Told him I missed him, love him and think of him often. I asked him to be with my Aunt today and give her peace and less loneliness.

I'm still having silent arguments with the parts jerk daily. Yesterday he parked in my space and I had to park across the street, my truck almost got hit and I had to crawl in thru the passenger side to move it, getting snow all over.

Today he tried pushing his shipping responsibilies onto me again. He does this every 6 months or so. I told him no. He pushed it more. I went to the branch supervisor, who I share an office with. He told me not to take it over.

3 more staff were laid off in our Edmonton branch today, all technicians, one office person was laid off in Calgary today as well. I guess it's time it hit our company. Sad really. I know my job is secure. Nothing is going to happen to us in the smaller branches, I am secure. Well unless they close the branch, then I'm screwed.

The roads here are super crappy. It took me an extra 15 minutes to get to work this morning. I hate that. It makes my commute a full hour each way.

I volunteered at bingo in my town for tomorrow night. I'm not a fan, I don't mind it, but it's more to try to meet some new people in town. I realize this is not going to help me meet the age group of people that Chris and I are in, but you never know. At the very least it might help me network my business. I'm kinda excited about it. It's going to be a rush to get there! I get off at 4:30 and it's at 5:30 and it's now taking me a full hour to get home...

I'm starting to think I'll never get a job. I guess I might have to consider going back into retail. I really don't want too, but I might have to think about it if I really want to leave my job. It's a damn good thing I didn't just leave...yikes!

out of the loop

I've been out of it so long, I feel like I don't know what's going on with anyone lately!

It's always so busy when Chris is home and I seem to get away from the internet. He left today. I'm kinda sad and a bit lonely. I hate the first day when he's gone. The house is always too quiet.

I knew this would happen, so I made plans for today. Unfortunately it didn't pan out how I had hoped. I met up with my friend Carrie for lunch. We did some shopping afterwards. I swear we have nothing in common anymore, nothing to say. We met up for lunch and I swear this is how people lose friendships and things change. I know I don't have kids, but I've spent a lot of time around them, half raised some. I had to bite my tongue a few times.

Then we went to Costco. She decided to hold him the whole time, because he doesn't like his car seat. Well, ummm what was your first clue?! The kid weighs 14lbs, he's going to get heavy.
After like 10 minutes, she was saying how she wanted to sit and her back hurt. Umm ya. Go figure. I don't know why she wouldn't have brought in the car seat so he could be pushed, not carried the whole time. I mean he's 7 weeks old. Sheesh.

I digress.

Anyhow, so Chris is working and for that I'm truly thankful. I have no immediate plans for this weekend. A bit of relaxing, a bit of laundry, some reading (I miss reading), and put in an Epicure order. Should be nice and low key.

Oh ya, and hopefully read some blogs...

Monday, March 2, 2009


It's been a long time since I last wrote. I've been really busy and although I mean to write an entry, or even read you all. I can never seem to find time!
I still don't like my job. I'm still looking for something else. The economy is starting to scare me, I wonder if I'll ever find a new job. Ugh.
Chris has been home for almost 2 weeks, going back in the next day or so. For that, I'm happy. happy that we had some time together, but also happy that he has a job to go back too. I'm grateful for every day he works.
Not a lot going on these days...
