things are getting a little shakey

I spent a little time out at the barn this weekend taking pictures of my sisters studs and mares. I couldn't help but share this picture of my little niece "grooming" one of the studs. Tuff just sat there and let her. He looked awful perdy when she was all done.
After I got the shots I needed for his adverts. I went home and felt ucky all day, still fealt ucky today so I called in sick. I think part of it is the heat. I don't do well with it. And then there is some termoil going on with my whole work situation that could be considered a blessing, but I am not really sure what is happening. My life is just all up in the air for a little while, hopefully things will settle down by next week. Here's to hope, right?

till tomarrow

Well I was going to post last night but I got out of work late and then almost got killed by a cop car in a high speed chase. I have an akward schedule this week but I do have tomarrow night off so I will come back and ramble at you all then. Have a good day! Oh and yes Martin it was Harry but I am also reading the historian at the same time. so I am switch hitting you might say.

She still has a pulse

Just a quick note to let you all know I am still breathing. Had guests this weekend and was also out until 3 am on Saturday with one of my bosses. I have to sadly say that a certain book has been persuading me from the computer a bit too. Any guesses as to which one that is? Back with a real post tomarrow night. Kisses all!

Brechi's Blogger Meme

Ok so I am following Brechi's lead and doing his meme, in anticipation of an upcoming blogging anniversary.

Of the blogs you read,

My friend Kris's now defunct blog which is now re-incarnated with her new addition.

Kris is an old friend and of course my sissy .

Wayne is a hoot, his cartoons deserve a platform of their own!

lobster face

Well I had a nice Saturday. Went Downtown to the Carnival and watched my niece in the parade. Ended up with a super sexy sunburn on my face. I look like I am permenately embarrassed. Yeah I know, how hot is that?!?! But it was a nice morning. To cool off we went and saw War of The Worlds

It was an OK movie, sort of anti-climactic I think, but no real complaints. Did some serious shopping on Friday and Saturday and even scored some nice additions to my shot glass collection. I LOVE that 40 % off thing!

Of course good things must come to an end and it surely did when I got to work today and we were SLAMMED! It's SUNDAY people, you know, the day of rest, go home and get the hell out of my store! ;) Though I am sure part of the reason we were so busy was because it was like a hundred degrees outside! That was the nice part of working; I am parked right under the AC vent. Now I am gonna go enjoy a cool bath and crack a new book.

big weekend 'round thisaway

I have so much going on this weekend. It is such a good thing that tomarrow is payday. First of all it is employee double discount at work so I get 40 % off of everything all weekend. Spend spend spend. Of course I have to work a nine hour day before I can even start shopping. I have so many things I am looking to snag while I can get the really low price. Then there is Bohemia Mining Days here in Cottage Grove. Big ol' Carnival that takes over the whole town for a good 4-5 days. Then it is one of my sisters birthday and we will probably celebrate that. I only have Saturday off so I have to pack it all in in one and a half days!

My camera is broken again and it kills me not to have it in hand so I am ordering another one tomarrow after I get paid. I just can't live without it! I am only bummed that I can't get the quality of one I want because the price is just too much right now. Hopefully in a month or two I will be able to retire this one to one of my nieces and get the one I really want. OK so I have an early rise tomarrow so I better get to bed.

smiling sucks....sometimes

The clouds looked like marshmallow ribbons across the sky tonight and the humidity of the day broke and the cool twilight air felt good on the skin as I drove home from what seemed like the longest work day ever. I personally processed $9,000+ in transactions today and when you consider that the averaged item we sell ranges from $8-25 that is a hell of a lot of merchandise to scan and bag and SMILE and greet and SMILE. My cheeks hurt from being a cheerful associate. It's a lot of work to appear happy when all you really want to do is go home crawl in bed and lose conciousness.

Sounds like a good idea really; losing conciousness, so goodnight for now.

smells good

I love the smell of spent fireworks. But then again I like the smell of gasoline, so I am weird. I had a quiet fourth. I worked and got home late so I didn't really celebrate, just crawled in bed and tried to comfort a cat that thought the world was ending.

I have been very focused on work lately and it has paid off. Got the two promotions in the shortest time ever for the store and find it feels like I have been doing what I do there for years. I have only been with the company since mid-March and I am already second in command to acting management. I am proud of myself though it has taken a toll on me getting there. Stress wise in regards to worrying whether or not I could make it happen. It isn't in effect yet but it has been confirmed so I am able to relax, knowing I did enough and probably more than I had to. But it leads me to wonder just a bit if this is something I want to commit myself to. Does it make me happy and do I think I could devote myself to this field for many years. Something I am sure to ponder for quite a while.

Come On, JUMP!

Come On, JUMP!
Originally uploaded by speakslyrics.
So I got to go after all just the next day so I only got to spend 1 night. Posted several pictures on flickr if you care to take a peek. It was a really nice camp out. Perfect weather. Was with the whole family with the exception of Sissy who party pooped on us. got some pretty pink cheeks from being down in the water, but it wasn't HOT like I thought it might be. In the picture above you can see that two of the girls had already taken the dive. Two were still working up the nerve. This is the best swimming hole it is super deep in one spot and super shallow on the other side for the kids. You can also see exactly how deep the water is. The girls are standing on a sort of shelf and then it is a full drop off. Had a blast! But I have to work tomarrow so I best hit the hay or I won't be able to drag my sorry ass out of bed. Night night kiddies!
