I Don't Really Have Anything to Say But...What the Heck

This week was such a slacker week for me. There were only four games this week and three of them were in the same day. I lucked out. I think next week is going to be just as good.

There is only one Awanas day left next week. I'm sure Riley will be so happy. For some reason he thinks he's too cool for Awanas. I don't think he is but whatever. Next year the three younger kids will go and he can just hang out with Brian. I also think I will be signing Darby and Jordan up for camp in July. It's five days and Darby went last year. She said she had a lot of fun. I haven't exactly decided yet. I need to get some things worked out before I send in the registration form.

So, I've been working out 6 days a week, 40 minutes or more a day for 3 weeks and I gained 2 lbs. It's the saddest, most pathetic thing ever. I know I don't eat that great but seriously. And a little bit of it is probably some muscle because I don't feel as flabby in arms and legs, but seriously! My friend who has been doing the same work out with me has lost like 17 lbs or 20 or something crazy like that. Sure, she's been eating much healthier than I have, but again, seriously!

There's a lady at my work that sighs all the time! Sometimes I can ignore it and sometimes it just aggravates the hell out of me. Today she is aggravating. And I'm even in a good mood. I have to go ask her a question in a minute and I dread this because either she won't give me much help or it will take her two hours to do something that would take the normal person who helps me two seconds. Or maybe she'll just help me and I'll never hear another word about it. You never know with that one.

I'm trying not to be negative about work. Brian and some guy who wrote an article in O magazine said something about how I'm the one making it unpleasant and I need to find the part of work I like and blah, blah, blah. (Brian was talking about me specifically, the guy who wrote the article was talking about people in general. Not me though that would be kind of cool.) So, I'm trying to work on it. You can see how well this is going. On the bright side, I listen to other people talk about their jobs and I feel a lot better about this place.

I'm going to take a picture of my guinnea pig because she is so, so cute. I love her. I love her so much I'm thinking about getting her a friend. Another girl of course. I went to one store and looked and none of them were cute enough to be friends with Lucy. The other store I went to only had boys. Jillian and I will go this weekend and check out one more place. Not just any guinnea pig is good enough for our little Lucy.

Well, it's almost 1 and I want to go workout at 2. I better go ask my question. Have a great weekend!

Two Days

I have not posted in forever. This is because I took Thursday and Friday off last week and it was great! I did spend time on the computer, but I didn't have blogging time scheduled in. I know. It's disappointing. I won't bore you with all the details of my very busy couple of days, but I'm glad I didn't have to try and fit work in.

I feel a little refreshed. I've been all annoyed about my current job and I had sent out some resumes to find a new job, but of course I haven't heard back on any of them. I'm going to take a short break from the job hunt. I'm so busy with baseball right now I don't need to add anything more to my plate. Plus, I'm not going to push getting a new job. I need to take it easy. I don't want to end up some place else where I'm not happy. I just need to think about what I want. For now things are okay. It's very slow, which is both good and bad. Good, because I can finish all my work in one day and go home knowing there is nothing that should have or needs to be done. Bad, because I don't really want the bosses thinking that they need to get rid of another person. That kind of thing has been going around lately.

I was finally able to get my hair done. I am so happy. It's the best thing I did all weekend. Grandparents and Brian all had to make sacrifices so that I could have lovely hair again. There were a lot of people and kids to coordinate but I managed! I'm so proud of myself. Okay, I said I wouldn't bore you with the details, but here is what was going on Saturday:

8:00-8:30 am: Riley's baseball pictures-But wait! Pictures re-scheduled for nine!
9:00-11:30 am: My hair appointment
11:15 am: Riley needed to be at his baseball game in Emmett, which is not very close to Nampa, where we live.
11:30 am: Darby's softball pictures AND Jillian had a birthday party to attend.
Noon: Riley's game starts.
1:30 pm: Jordan's baseball pictures.

Okay, it doesn't really look like much, but if you notice I have to be 3 or 4 places at once. And I was not cancelling the hair appointment. Not going to happen. So...Originally I was going to take Riley to his pictures and drop him off at my mom's on my way to my appointment so that she could get him to Emmett by 11:15. However, when they changed the time of the pictures Brian had to take him and my mom had to drive to Nampa and pick him up at the house. After Brian took Riley to his pictures he had to pick up Darby at her friend Tayler's house so she could get ready for her pics. Her grandma was picking her and Jordan up for that part of the schedule. Brian then took Jillian to her birthday party. After my hair appointment I eventually made it to Emmett after being lost for about an hour and made the last half of Riley's game. The rest of the weekend we were free to do whatever we wanted! And the weather was fantastic. Perfect actually.

I'm really glad I took those two days off.

I'm here and I survived my busy weekend. I had fun, actually. I love watching the kids play baseball and if I have to be a million places at once I'm okay with that. Plus, my mom came over twice this weekend to help me out. I was outside all day on Saturday. It was so cold that morning. I was kicking myself for not bringing blankets to Riley's 10 am game. The sun was out but that dang wind was blowing and I was freezing! His team lost, but it was a really good game. By the last inning they were down 10-1 and I was thinking that I should start getting ready to leave, but they rallied together that last inning and only lost 10-9. It was good and Riley hit a double. (Or something like that? Two people made it home on his hit.)

I don't know if Jordan's team won. Pretty much all the kids on the team would hit the ball and they would switch. It was probably a pretty close game. His team isn't very good at getting people out yet. They'll get better.

Brian bought me an Ipod Touch. It is so cool! I love it. I need to play around with it more. I already put some games on it and of course my songs. I also have a movie on there, but I don't think I'll keep it on there. I added Notting Hill. I love that movie, but I don't really want to watch it on the Ipod. I'll need to get some TV shows or something.

Well, my job search still isn't very good, but I'm hopeful this economy thing will work itself out and things will get better. I'm just going to keep trying and sending those resumes. Nothing wrong with trying right?

I will leave you with a conversation I had with the three year-old this morning. By the way, I love my conversations with the three year-old.

Jillian: Who made the sun?

Me: God.

Jillian: Who made the darkness?

Me: God.

Jillian: Who makes milk?

Me: Cows.

Jillian: No!!!

At this point I thought she was confused. I thought she was thinking that God makes milk too. I told her, yes cows make milk.

Jillian: No they don't, boobies do.

Of course they do.
