All Points Bulletin-Cancelled

Okay, I just put out an all points bulletin but it's now cancelled. For about 5 minutes, Bootsie's halloween costume went missing. Please don't worry any longer, I found it in my closet. At first I thought Justin was hiding it from me, but he swore on our love that he didn't. I am so glad it's back in my arms. Just wait until you see the picture tomorrow. You will die!

A Perfect Match

I found new bedding for our bed this past weekend. Justin and I went to Haverty's Furniture this weekend just to "look around." When we walked in, they had this bedding on our furniture that is in our master bedroom. And, it was 20% off. I was so excited. Also, it came with a dust ruffle but you couldn't see it because our side rails hide it. So Justin says, "We should make curtains out of the matching dust ruffle." I was floored. He is turning into a Branham :) I told him he should have his own show on HGTV!

A Good Replacement

I have really missed The Sopranos. I hated the ending, but I still loved the show. My new replacement show is Cane on CBS. It is all about the family business just like Sopranos was. Instead of being in the garbage business, this family is in the sugar cane business. It takes place in south Florida and the scenery is beautiful. Everyone should tune in and watch it on Tuesday nights. You won't be disappointed.

Something isn't right

Did anyone watch DWTS tonight? Did you see the co-host, Samantha Harris? She just had a baby three weeks ago!!! Something is not right about that.

Busy, Busy, Busy!

I have been so busy lately. It's INSANE!!! I looked at my calender this morning and I was in shock. October is half way over! Where in the heck did this month go? It's only 5 weeks until Thanksgiving. My sister has her little boy in 6 1/2 weeks and Christmas will be right after that. Can you believe it?

It seems like the business has been growing like crazy. We sold 5 roll off (big construction boxes) accounts just last week. We usually only sell 5 a month. I am so excited about trash!!! Who would have ever thought? We also have been selling the heck out of commercial accounts (for weekly trash pickup) for businesses that are outside the city limits of Alpine. I am thrilled.

I got a stomach bug on Sunday and stayed in bed all day. And no, I am not pregnant!!! I slept all day and all night. It was so nice to get some much needed rest.

I hope everyone has a great week. Only 69 shopping days until Christmas!!!

p.s. I have to brag on Justin...he has lost 39 pounds. I am so proud of him. I swear he is going to waste away to nothing....

Happy Bosses Day!

Did you know that today is bosses day? I was shocked to find that out! My Boss was out of the office today but I thought I would write about him anyway. I have to admit that I have one of the coolest bosses around. He's very easy to work for and always puts up with my mood swings! He knows how to say things in a nice way and doesn't easily offend me. I know that I get frustrated with him at times, but I wouldn't trade him or my job for the world. It can be hard work and frustrating at times, but it's so worth it at the end of the day when you realize what you have done. I love working with him!!!

Just in case you didn't know it, my boss is also my husband. I was a little worried when I was asked to work with him, but it has been the best thing for us. I can't imagine doing this with anyone else.

My sister and her husband work together. She told me one key piece of advice before I moved. She said, "Just remember that he is the boss at work and you are the boss at home!" I love that quote. Delilah also gave me another piece of advice that was great. She said, "If you get in a fight at work, leave it at work. If you get in a fight at home, leave it at home. Don't ever mix the two." She really is wise. I guess that's one of the reasons God gave us big sisters.
