Finding old friends...

I reconnected with one of my friends yesterday. We grew up together in Kentucky. I found her on Myspace. She seems to be doing great. I am going to Kentucky in February and I plan on visiting her. She will either be way pregnant or just have had her baby. It will be great to see her. I have to admit that when she was talking about being 26, I was in shock. I still see her as my 17 year old friend that I used to "roll" with! We had many fun times together! I could go on and on with all the crazy stories.

I love technology!

I have to say that I am totally in love with my new blackberry! I really don't know how I have lived without one! I am posting this blog from my phone while my husband is driving ninety to nothing. I love this thing!!!

So you had a bad day?

I should have known that I was going to have a bad when I got pulled over this morning on my way to work. He pulled me over for having only 1 headlight that works. He gave me a "verbal warning" and sent me on my merry way. The day got progressivly worse. The only good thing was that I got to deliver meals on wheels at lunch. I do this on Thursdays during my lunch and it really is cool. The people that I deliver to are so nice. I am really getting to know them. One man that I deliver to was out on his porch and not inside. He told me he liked my "fancy car." It was neat to see him out enjoying the weather.

So, to make my day better, I got a happy meal on McDonald's. This was totally not on my diet...but I really don't care. I am going to go on a walk now and try to "walk off" my frustrations.

Thanks for letting me vent!!!

I love this week!

I am so excited about this week. Tonight I will watch Desperate Housewives. Monday I will watch DWTS (dancing w/the stars). Tuesday I will watch Cane. Wednesday I will watch the DWTS result show. Thursday it will be The Office and Grey's Anatomy. THEY ARE ALL NEW EPISODES AND I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Okay, maybe I am a little addicted to the television. At least it's not drugs, booze, or cigarettes.

The cactus capitol of the world

Did you know that Sanderson, Texas is the "cactus capitol of the world?" We just got the contract to haul their trash and it begins October 1st. Justin and I are super excited. I had never been to Sanderson, but I got to go today. It's a little over an hour from our house in Alpine. Justin and I worked on cans so that they can be put out on Thursday. He used the "spider" (fancy forklift) to put them in neat rows so that they can have the serial numbers painted on and I took off the stickers that were from Roll-Off USA. I swear I saw that stinking sticker over 100 times and I now have their phone number memorized. I even put on a pair of work gloves b/c I was messing up my new manicure!!! At one point when I was sweating profusely I said, "Justin I feel like I am in the desert." He replies, " are." Oh yeah, I forgot that we live next to the desert of Texas. Later Justin said, "Remember where we were two weeks ago at this time (getting on the cruise ship)?" I said, "It doesn't matter where I am, as long as we are together." His reply was, "I just threw up in my mouth."

We got home just a little bit ago and I can't wait to lay down. It's only 7:15pm and I am wiped out. I have a whole new appreciation for people who work outside all day, every day.

Shoutout to Delilah

I just got off the phone with my sister. She can't believe that I have a blog. She asked me what I wrote about and I told her it was like my own little diary for the world to see. She thinks I am crazy. I told her that she will love reading my diary and will soon have one of her own! I also explained to her that we all read each others blogs. It's a way to keep up on everyone's life. She makes fun of me now, but soon she will be eating her words!!!

I'm ready

I am officially ready for vacation to start. I will be waking up at 3:30am on Sunday and going to the airport at 4am. We will be in Puerto Rico at 2:10. I can't wait. I bought a new book and I have my swimsuit in my carry on bag so that I can go straight to the pool. I will post pictures when we get back. I hope everyone has a safe and happy week.

Talk with you soon!

Mean People Suck

Okay, I am sorry for the blog title...I can't help it. This guy calls me today at the office and wants me to pick up a refrigerator that "mysteriously" ended up next to his dumpster. I explained to him that we don't pick those up for free b/c they contain freon and we can't put freon in our landfill. It has to be evacuated by a licensed technician and we charge $50. 00 to do this. He was not happy with me and said, "I hope that one day your grandchild gets stuck in one of those fridges and dies." Can you believe that? I asked him if our GM (Justin) could call him back to discuss this. He said no. So, after instantly bursting into tears I made my boss/husband call him and give him a piece of his mind. I love caller ID!!!! Justin called him back and asked him how he could even think of something like that, much less say it! Justin also told him that by saying that, it showed exactly the type of person he was. At the end of the conversation, that mean man said, "Tell that little girl I am sorry." I'll show you little girl, buster! I was still upset, but Justin's call helped me some. I get so frustrated at times b/c my last job was nothing like this! My boss/husband keeps telling me that this is all going to be worth it one day. I keep remind myself of this!!!

I feel better

I am feeling much better. I went to the doctor today and she said it was allergies. I got some nose spray and I feel better already. I am currently doing laundry and getting ready to pack for VACATION!!!! I am starting to get really excited. Justin and I got all our clothes out the other night and tried them on for each other. I got the cutest shirt at Nordstom the other day for our cruise. He hated it and told me that it looked like something his mother wore in the 80's. I told him it was in style.

Thursday Morning

I now feel really bad and have scheduled an appointment for tomorrow morning at 9:00am. Hopefully, the nurse practitioner will feel the same way I do about penicillin shots. I'll let you know how it goes....

The best dessert ever!!!

I was having a really bad day until I went to Dairy Queen and asked them if they could make me a blizzard with Nerds that I had bought at the store. The lady behind the counter replied, "That is the best blizzard ever!" I was so excited to hear her say that. Also, she only charged me for a small ice cream cone. I was so pumped! I have a feeling that I will be going back there in the near future.

I also woke up this morning with a sore throat. Now, my nose is stopped up and my head hurts. I am hoping that it's just allergies and I will feel better tomorrow morning. I took my Emergen-C. If I feel bad tomorrow, I am going straight to the doctor and asking for a penicillin shot in the you know where. I have got to be feeling better for vacation. Only 4 days left and I will be sailing the Caribbean. I can't wait.
