Things are looking up

Let's see. I've been here and gone for WAY to long. Seems like life just up and got out of hand for awhile. I'm trying to rein it in....but LIFE.....well life is one FEISTY S.O.B.! And a real pain at times.....about 22 hours a day actually. But lately I've been busy.....very busy. Between work (yuck!), my friends, family and personal life has taken off in the last month or so.........I just can't seem to find time to do anything. Clean, Blog, remember to stay hydrated. It's rough.

Work is just FRUSTRATING! I try and try but I feel like I'm getting no where and I feel like no one at my company cares, they just watch me struggle. So I'm job hunting.....because I'm over this job.

My friends and family seem to be the only people that can keep me sane. And if you knew my friends and family you would understand why that is odd. With all their individual drama and internal conflict between's odd that they would actually be voices or reason for me.

And then there's my personal life. Hmmm.... for once it's not bad. For once things are going well. Very well. Almost to well, if you know what I mean. I'm not Miss. Negative. (I swear I'm not, don't pay any attention to what my friends and family tell you). I'm "Miss. I know how my life goes", and usually once things are going well...really well. BAMN! EXPLOSION of horrible measures. So I'm leery. Not of the person I'm seeing (i blogged about him awhile ago), but of the bad things that ALWAYS happen when I'm happy. Because I am happy. Really happy for once. and I'd sure like that to stick for awhile. That would be a nice change of pace.

I've been dating Mr. Lego for a little over a month now I think. One Month and two weeks maybe....but who's keeping track. Mr. Lego is very nice, a bit of a goof at times (hence the Mr. Lego name) but very nice. He's an IT guy for a tire factory, has a 7 year old son, and is divorced. I'm really enjoying spending time with him....he apparently hasn't picked up on my CRAZY GIRL vibe, because he seems to enjoy spending time with me. :) so here you go. blogger Mr. Lego.

Ladies Lunch time again!

So the women in my family started these Gorgeous Girls and Grannies lunches every few months. This year we celebrated every one's birthday.......and brought gifts, which in theory is a nice idea. Until you have 11 people at 1 lunch to buy for......then it becomes expensive. So we've covered all the birthday's now, and will just be having lunches from now on. No gifts required. Cool.

So here are a few pictures from the last one we had in Cambridge, Md. Lunch #3

This would be the whole crazy bunch. My Aunt Gloria had the t-shirts and the banner made. Everyone seemed to enjoy them.

Just us nieces. From top to bottom (left to right) Tammy, Kimmie, Missy, ME, and Jen

And Finally me and one of my favorite two little monsters. Rebecca.

Work blues

Every time I say I'm BACK!! something happens and I'm away from blogging FOREVER! So I wont say it.......because I'm sure something will come up and I wont be able to post for a LONG TIME!

I just got back this week from a MUCH need vacation. 10 days off.......10 whole days! a row!!

I didn't do much. took a few little mini vacation and spent time with my family, nothing REALLY exciting. But least I wasn't at work. So Now I'm back to the Grind.....and it sucks.

Had a bit of a falling out yesterday with my supervisor. In my defense after a year of hearing "We know you need help, we are getting another person to help you", 6 months of 6 days a week in this place, overtime on my ONE day off, and more and more work........I finally snapped and said "I can't do anymore work, I have a lot of work to do to!" And yet.......I'm the jerk. Wouldn't be so bad but she wouldn't have a rational conversation with me, she just yells, "Never mind", storms off and mutters to herself what a hassle it is to get a little help around here. NO SHIT! I've been saying that for a YEAR! Funny thing....the stuff she wanted me to do.....3 other people know how to do.......why was I ELECTED the person to do it forever NOW!? Oh yeah because up until now I haven't COMPLAINED about or said NO to anything I've had to do.....yeah I am a jerk.

Happy 4th of July

A few weeks ago there was a hot air balloon festival right behind my house. RIGHT BEHIND my house. I was so excited to go over Saturday night and see the GLOW show. when all the hot air balloon pilots light up the balloons.....but it rained. So I had to settle for watching them launch Friday from my porch. This one seemed fitting for today!

HAPPY 4th of JULY!!!
