gas, amusement parks and the like

I love my husband.

The end

Ok, so I have lots more thoughts than that, but that's for sure the most important.
Will the car problems ever end?!!?!?!!?? Seriously, it's gone overboard. The started on Jason's car was just replaced, the dimmer switch on my car was recently replaced, my mazda was totaled (which we finally received the settlement check for - begin the hallelujah chorus!) and, now, either the battery or the alternator needs replacing on my car as well *sighs* COME ON!! enough already! I am poor enough without the stupid cars (and their gas tanks) draining my savings... seriously $3.89 per gallon - I WANT TO FREAKING SCREAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I know that there's nothing for me to do but piss and moan about it so i typically don't but it has just been eating at my insdies for so long that i'm taking out on my blog - so take that!!!!! It's getting just absolutely ridiculous! I can't take it! I'm moving away. Where you might ask? To the island from Lost because apparently gas prices are the least of their worries, lol.

K, i'm super excited because tomorrow Jason and I are going to 6 flags - sweet! I love going to 6 flags b/c it's a freaking blasty blast and I need some enjoyment after nearly pulling my hair out about the stupid cars.

sooooo, now that i've thoroughly blogged to my heart's content, I'm going to bed.

nighty night!

So, this past weekend, Jason and I went on vacation with his family to Branson... yawn.....
It wasn't all that bad, because I needed a vacation. The problem was that we went on vacation with the people I wanted to take a break from! Less than effective.... It was a pretty sweet deal. We got the room, most food, and our amusement park tickets for free. We paid for gas and that was about it. Plus I got to eat at my favorite restaurant in Springfield - Fuji!!!! We got home yesterday and had to go straight to work - the joys of working for family - then home. I was so exhausted and had so much to do when we finally got home - not to mention I was so sick and could barely stand up. Nice. Jason was so sweet and did all the laundry and made dinner.

I have no idea what is going on with my body - it can never decide what it's doing. I'm not even sure why I'm sick besides the fact that 2 of my nephews have been sick lately. I should start taking my cocktail of vitamins that helped my stay well - but I don't wanna! lol, I've just always had to take so many pills that it gets a tad obnoxious after awhile.

I am ready for today to be over! It's just not really been a great day. It started off poorly and has continued to be. I am so frustrated that no one is listening to me! Everyone is treating me like they can walk all over me and I am so tired of it! I need a break.... from eveyone? YES! I'm tired of people saying one thing to my face about something and me hearing from Jason that they feel differently than what they told me. I've spent my whole life around two faced people and, I must say, they are my least favorite!!!!! I have no respect for people who can't be honest.

Clearly, my vacation did me a whole lot of good!

Frustrated, much?

For me, the answer is quite simple - YES!!!!! All I want to do is pull my hair out right now! Work has been ultra boring lately because we have to sit in the store and do nothing... seriously. My boss decided to have this book giveaway/sale and NO ONE has come since the first day - which was last Monday. I am so bored!!!!! I guess it's ok because I just get to chill on the internet or play guitar hero, but that gets way boring after awhile!

My boss's brilliancy streak continues. He bought new printers for both stores (which were desperately needed!!) and I'm trying to install it and it's not working!!!! I don't know why, i have more important things to do than be a computer geek! I have 3 jobs, I'm a wife and a student and annoyed!!! my back hurts because I've spent the last hour crawling under the computer desk trying to get this stupid thing to work, which is also wreaking havoc on my knees - oh joy! Then Jason, who has just been playing video games the whole time turns to me and asks "Is it working, YET?!?" Seriously, don't open your mouth if you're not going to help... you may end up losing a tooth or two... ish, lol

Yesterday, we called the people who currently live in the house we're moving into and it did not go well. Jason asked them which day they would be moving out and they replied that they haven't found a new house yet and wanted to stay there until the end of July - WhAt?!?!?!!?!1 We were supposed to move in on June 15th and now they're saying the end of July!!???!!!!! That's not OK with me. We have already told our landlord that we were moving out and he's found someone else to replace us.

Oh how I pass the time

So, this week at work is pretty cake. We're having a book giveaway and all we have to do is sit around while people are here - that's it! We're usually here from 9-4ish everyday anyway, but we feel bad if we're not doing anything work related. This week, however, we have to be here so we can slack off like they do at the main store, lol. Seriously though... the owner (my brother-in-law) and the manager (my other brother-in-law) and some random other employee (who I just don't get) sit around and play video games all day - wtf?!?! So now it's our turn! I'm sure by the end of the day I'll be so bored and have to find something interesting to do. Luckily, tomorrow I'm cleaning in the morning and in the afternoon, I'll be going to the temple with a friend. At least I'll get some break from the boredom!

We're rapidly approaching moving day and I couldn't be happier! Saturday we went and bought kitchen cabinets, a curio (whatever that is), and a microwave cart. I'm definitely done spending money for awhile (at least until next paycheck... which is Thursday, lol). Now, all we need to do is pick up our pantry from my sister-in-law and then we're set! I'm kind of overwhelmed thinking about moving, but so stoked as well! I just hope we don't end up regretting it.

And there it goes

Only 1 more class until freedom!!!!!!!!!!! Freedom and summer fun - yes!

Sooooo.... my sister-in-law and I are on an adventure - a jewelry adventure! She has started up a jewelry business and we're partners in crime so to speak. OK, I'm her assistant, but still totally stoked! Also, my new nephew = total cutie! It's so great to go over and see him.

We are coming in on our final days in our apartment!! We're moving on June 15th into our rent free house - sweet! No more obnoxious neighbors who cook meth and use our washer and dryer without permission. Oh! And we get to get rid of our washer and dryer! Maybe i'll just sell it to someone who lives in our building and price it really high to make up for all the times they used it before... hmmmmm.....

Yeah, those are basically the highlights of my life today. Outie!
Throughout my late adolescense and adulthood, I have had many positions (professionally and volunteer basis) that have helped me develop skills necessary to serve as a liaison to the community on behalf of a professional organization. I have spent many years in various organizations which have helped me grow skills such as public speaking, note taking, and scheduling. I am proficient in organization and mediation – always keeping the mindset of finding middle ground and while meeting the needs of those involved. I excel in the area of community outreach and thrive in situations where I am given reign to be creative and managerial. I am committed to achieving the best outcome and feel I have many fantastic qualities to contribute to any organization.
