How many can you relate to?

Hello ALL!!! So I received a forward in my email today (insert eye roll) and I NEVER forward those things....well unless it says something in reference to bad luck FOREVER......or true happiness, because let's be honest, If you can't find true happiness via a chain email where can you find it. NO really where ..............anyone.....anyone..... Well thanks a bunch guys. Looks like the quest for true happiness continues. Anyways. instead of forwarding this email to EVERYONE I know, who wants to be that girl, I've decided to post it here. Some of them mad me laugh, mostly because I can completely agree with them.

1. I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

2. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

3. I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

4. There is great need for a sarcasm font.

5 How the heck are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

6. Was learning cursive really necessary?

7. Map Quest really needs to start their directions on #5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

8. Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

9. I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

10. Bad decisions make good stories.

11. You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

12. Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection.. .again.

13. I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page research paper that I swear I did not make any changes to.

14. "Do not machine wash or tumble dry" means I will never wash this - ever.

15. I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Darn it!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What did you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

16. I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

17. I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

18. I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

19. I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Bud Lite than Kay.

20. I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

21. Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.

22. I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

23. The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

24. I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

25. How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

26. I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

27. Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

28. Is it just me or do high school kids get dumber & dumber every year?

29. There's no worse feeling than that millisecond you're sure you are going to die after leaning your chair back a little too far.

30. As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

31. Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

32. Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet my behind everyone can find and push the snooze button from 3 feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time!

Too much HOOPLA!

So my 5 day vacation (spent at home doing NOTHING) is now over and I am.......back at work. BOO!

I had taken a few days off for my birthday and to recover from the 10 day stretch I had. My birthday..................in a word.........................disappointing. My family was to BUSY to celebrate my birthday on Wednesday.................so we did it Friday after MUCH fighting and arguing. I actually asked if they needed me there after all. All i wanted was a carrot cake or a German chocolate cake....i don't ask for much. I didn't get either. My mom doesn't like carrot cake, huh I sort of thought it was my birthday i must have been wrong, and they couldn't find a German chocolate cake. WHATEVER. My dinner plans with my friends were canceled but that couldn't be helped. Preggers little boy was sick. Like really sick. Like a 102 degree fever sick. Poor guy. so the dinner was postponed till this week.

I spent my actual birthday at the laundry mat, mowing my parents huge yard (yeah the parents who forgot my birthday...that's them) and sitting at home alone. It was AWESOME.

But i did get a rocking gift from Preggers.
And my parents bought me a new gas bottle for my grill and some BBQ forks and stuff.

My mom said, "don't you think you're a little to old for all this hoopla". The HOOPLA in question was a family dinner at my parents house. Which was my idea. They offered to take me out but I said why don't we just throw some burgers on the grill and eat here Friday that way Big brother, Jan, and baby Sarah could come. all i wanted was burgers and cake at my parents house. What a bunch of HOOPLA. I'm so inconsiderate sometimes. I told my mom they can plan their own Halloween party for the kids next year, and their own children parties and birthday stuff. Since asking for burgers and cake at my parents house is to much HOOPLA for me. I'm out of the hoopla business then.

So Sarah went to see the Easter Bunny. Her first encounter with holiday "figures". But I guess Peter was busy....this must be Paulette Rabbit.

Ahh Aunt McMean's happy little bunny friends!

Day 9 of 10

I've been working non stop since Easter Sunday. NON STOP. except for roughly 10 hours between shifts when I'm eating dinner, sleeping, and taking a shower. I'm EXHAUSTED.

The weather has been amazing....at least the glimpses I've seen from the window, since I've been stuck inside the office WORKING. And I'm just really HOPING that it's nice this week when I finally have sometime off. PLEASE!

"Just one more day"...that's what I've been telling myself ALL day TODAY. JUST ONE MORE DAY, after today, and I finally have some time off! Just one more day.

Aside from being screamed out by a VERY ANGRY man.....a funeral director..........another angry guy.........and some lady from a law office, the day hasn't been TO BAD.

Hope everyone else is having a much BETTER day. Just one more day!

5 things Friday

so my bloggy buddy Sam, over here does 5 things Friday. And since she's obvious a smart cookie (she's a Steelers fan also) I figured I'd join her on this nice Friday.

5 things that I REALLY love. NOW......I could say my family..blah...blah...blah...but that's a given, for the most part.

So here we go
  1. Flannel sheets. I'm ALWAYS cold, so flannel sheets are the best thing in the world to me! Next to a heated blanket. "You know one of them there blankets with a plug you stick right into the wall, while you watch your shows".
  2. SUBWAY. The sandwich place, not the overly crowded, smelly, noisy form of transportation. I love me a good sub.
  3. Sun, warm temps, and a fishing pole. I love fishing......it's so relaxing. I can't wait to get out and catch some fish this summer.................and work on my tan, after I've applied an appropriate amount of SPF.
  4. Grillin. Nothing is better then a yummy hamburger straight off the Bar-B-Q. Unless it's a yummy STEAK!
  5. Adult activities........................of course I'm talking about Bingo, and sing-songs, and not Sex, and Alcohol. Of course that's what I meant. ;)

A room of her own

You might remember I mentioned that Big Brother and his girlfriend moved into a house a few weeks ago. Well, they are still unpacking but Jan set up Sarah Catherine's nursery. So little Sarah has here own room finally.

And finally what's a baby update without.................A BABY!

Sarah in her boppy (or the lobster claw) as i call it.

Busy Beaver

Sunday started my 10 straight work week....and then some. I know. there are only 7 days to a week so tack on the last 3 for good behavior.....or i guess since it's 10 days with no breaks BAD BEHAVIOR. I must have done something HORRIBLE to receive this honor. NOPE. My co-worker is on VACATION. and I'm here working. My. Butt. off......Now that would be a nice side effect if it actually happen. My 10 stretch, 10 day sentence, 10 days of pure hell......whatever you prefer, started Sunday. Yup Easter Sunday. I spent 5 1/2 glorious hours hanging out here at work....waiting for the dead to roll in. Good times.

Wait.....back track. Last week I was sick. SICK. The call in sick, because You can barely speak.....kind of SICK. My throat was killing me all week. By Wednesday even my boss noticed and thought I should go home. When i woke up Thursday morning, i could hardly talk. I laid on the couch, watched movies, took TONS of cold pills, and slept. Same thing Friday. by Saturday my throat no longer hurt but I'm still sick today and it's TUESDAY. So my two days off prior to starting this work sentence....were anything but fun and relaxing.

Fast forward to now! It's day 3 of my 10. 7 more days to go. I don't know if i can make it. Here's the break down.
  • Sunday 4/4 worked 5.5 hours
  • Monday-Friday 4/5-4/9 10am- 830pm everyday
  • Saturday 9am-12 noon (training) 2-7:30 work
  • Sunday 4/11 5.5 hours
  • Monday 9:30-8:30
  • Tuesday 7-3
  • OFF WEDNESDAY 4/14 (for my birthday), Thursday, Friday, Saturday AND Sunday.I had to take off these days other wise I would have worked through Friday.
Only 7 more days to go...............................
