Off We Go Again

I hate flying. I really do. It makes me feel sick. I can't sleep on a plane, and if I read, I get nauseous. What's a girl to do?

The interview went extremely well. We visited stores on the second day. I am happy to know my stores look tons better. They told me I would hear something in a week. I think my chances are pretty good.

So, we are getting ready to leave again. We are going to my parents' house and the kid is staying there for a week. Tonight we are traveling an hour to go and eat at a Red Lobster for my sister's birthday. She already has such an attitude problem today, so this should prove to be interesting.

Looks like I will catch up with all of you when I return on Sunday. Hope you are having a fantastic week!

Wish Me Luck!

Well, I am getting ready to go to the weekly poker night at one of my co-worker's house. It will be a small group of five tonight. That's okay. I don't want to stay up too late because I have to be at the airport by 4:45 am. Waaaay too early for me. I won't be able to update until I return on Friday evening. Wish me luck on this interview!

Breakfast of Champions

I just made breakfast. Biscuits, sausage, and scrambled eggs with shredded cheese melted over it. Large cups of coffee and Walla! breakfast is complete!

I am heading out to do some clothes and shoe shopping. We are cooking a brisket in the oven today. It should be a tasty dinner.

Well, I'll update later.

What's A Girl To Do?

Well, the sun finally broke through today and now it is hot and muggy. Ugh! That's okay, because I am calling it a day! I have to work a half day tomorrow, and then I will get ready for my little trip.

I can't decide if I want to buy a new business suit, or if I should just wear one I currently have. I guess I will just make that decision when I am out window shopping tomorrow.

I am not looking forward to the flight. I hate flying. It makes me sick. But, it must be done in order to get there and do this. Oh well.

I need to get dinner ready. I am seasoning a brisket tonight for tomorrow's dinner. It will slow roast all day tomorrow. Yumm-O!

Tornadoes left and right.

Thundering loud pop.

It's. still. raining.

BBQ and Life Lessons

Hope you are all having a great weekend. Mine has been filled with hot, humid days and thunderstorms at night. Whew!

I have not interviewed yet. The interview will be this Thursday. I am looking forward to it.

Josh's family had a BBQ today, but I decided to stay home out of the heat. I have been working all weekend, so I needed to take some time for myself. I came home and took a nap. Yep, my life is pretty boring. He did bring me a plate home. I had a hamburger, potato salad, and beans for dinner. I'm glad I didn't have to cook!

So, I just found out my brother and his girlfriend of seven years broke up. It's pretty sad. They started dating when she was 15, so my brother is the only guy she has ever been with. I guess she is at the stage in her life where she questions herself and where she stands in her life. My brother is pretty heartbroken, I am sure. He was going to propose to her this year. Oh well. At least it happened before they got married and had any children. It's painful, but time heals all wounds.

Well, I am going to blog surf for awhile. Later!

Boom in the Night

I am home for a quick lunch, so I thought I would post. Last night we had one hell of a thunderstorm. I think it is the worst one I have encountered at night. It went on and on for what seemed like hours! And it was sooooo loud! I can only imagine what Phelan must be going through. Hope she made it out okay.

I'll be home for dinner, so I will catch up with all of you then. Later!

Cinci - Here I Come

I am so glad it's Friday! I have the day off. WooHoo! There is plenty to do today. The exterminator is coming to kill the nest of ants we found in the shed. I have about five loads of laundry to do. The living room needs a good cleaning. And the kitchen floor needs mopped. Along with all of this, I need to clean out my car.

Well, it looks like I have a job interview! I am going to Cinci on Thursday and will return Friday evening. I am kind of excited about it. My bosses aren't so happy. Oh well.

The kid is now on summer vacation. He slept in today until eight. I think he went to bed somewhere around one in the morning. I am putting that to a stop now. The kid will not be staying up all hours of the night and then sleeping all day. Not now, not until he is out of the house!

Okay, so I need to get going and catch up with all of you! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Meetings and More Meetings

Yesterday was the first day of meetings. It wasn't so bad. Today is the second round of meetings with store managers I don't really care for. hurray...

I have a dinner to go to this evening, so my weekly poker night with the guys won't be happening. All of the girls I work with think it's strange that I am the only girl who is invited to this weekly event. I explain it's mainly my other co-workers, and these girls really wouldn't want to be around all of that talk anyway. Vulgar mouths these boys have sometimes!

Well, I better finish getting ready. Later!

Day Off AND Dinner!

What a great day off yesterday! I really needed that. Didn't do any work around the house, except clean the downstairs rec room. I pretty much vegged in front of the television. I did go grocery shopping. It was fun. I let the kid get more snacks than usual, since there are only 4 more days of school left before summer vacation.

The kid made dinner last night! He made mini pepperoni pizzas on English muffins. They were actually really good. He just took the English muffins, sliced them in half, added three tablespoons of tomato sauce, a sprinkle of cheese and three pepperoni. Bake it for 10 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven. Yumm-O!

I am getting ready for work..... just thought I would drop a note before I went in. I have neglected the blog for so long, so I want to get back into the groove of things.

Bird Poop

Good morning. Josh is attempting to make breakfast this morning. Holy Lord, I am scared. Anyway, it's a gorgeous day out so far. I have to do some major grocery shopping. I love grocery shopping on my day off. I can actually relax and take my time throughout the store, look for bargains and anything new I might want to try and cook. Love it!

We are going to slowly remodel the house. We have emptied the furniture from the spare bedroom. This is where the computer used to be. Now the computer is downstairs in the rec room with all of Josh's sports memorabilia. fun...

This week will prove to be a busy one again. I have a meeting on Tuesday from 10 to 4, a meeting on Wednesday from 10 to 3 with a dinner to follow, then another meeting on Thursday from 8 to 5. Ugh!!!! I loathe meetings, especially if they are unproductive.

I hate bird poop. Yesterday, I went out to my car and there was a ton of it on the windshield. It was bad enough that it impaired my vision while I drove to the nearest car wash. Yuck! I hate bird poop. Especially when it's different colors. Gross.

Okay, enough gibber jabber. I am off to read up what I have missed the last two weeks. Catch you all later this afternoon.

Blueberry Bagel and Imported Cheese

Good morning! I am enjoying a cup of coffee and a toasted blueberry bagel prepared by the kid. Yummy. I am only working a half day and will enjoy a day off tomorrow. I have planned to spend two hours catching up on blogging. I am so behind!

Some of you have asked about the job I am going after. It's almost the same thing I will be doing here, but there are more opportunities for advancement in Cinci. I am a total foodie and I love the area of cheeses and gourmet foods. I can learn more and do more in Cinci in this area. I am weird. I actually get a kick out of studying imported cheeses and different gourmet foods. I don't talk a lot about it on here, because that's not the type of blog I want to have. I guess I could start a second blog and have it be about food. But I know I can barely keep up with this one, let alone start another.

Well, I better get off this computer and get the work day started. Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Is It Friday Already?

Hard to believe it is already Friday. This week was full of meetings and visits. Totally boring stuff to most of you. Today will be like the rest of the week. I have a bunch of paper work to get caught up on. Such mundane work for someone who loves excitement. Oh well. I do have a birthday party to attend this evening. Maybe I will make a showing there.

I have to be honest here and let you know I have not been updating myself with how all of you are doing. I promise to be a better friend and get caught up this weekend. I do apologize for my absence.

I have applied for a job in Cinci. I am waiting to hear back on an interview. Who knows.

Well, I better get headed out the door. Hope you all have a fantastic Friday.

Checking In

Good morning. It's been a busy, hectic week. My sister and her boyfriend have been in town. JJ had to have surgery on his stomach, so my sister has been by his side for most of the week in the hospital. Everything is good.

We celebrated Josh's birthday on Thursday. We had dinner with his parents at Red Beans Bayou Grill. They have pretty good food there. It was a nice evening. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were pretty uneventful. I just worked all weekend, preparing to move several departments in one of my stores.

I have put some thought into applying for another job. It is for the same company I work for now, but would require me to move. I am still mulling it over.

The kid only has three more weeks of school. We both can't wait.

So, here is the update of my boring life so far. I apologize for not commenting on your blogs. I have been silent lately, but promise to comment when I come by the next time.

Have a great Monday!
