Hump Day Happies the new job.

I'm sure you are tired of hearing about it.  The new job.  I started on Monday and so far it's....ok.  It's still awkard learning all the new systems and the new personalities.  I really miss my old work friends.  Like REALLY miss.  I'm sure in time I'll get used to this new group and the work flow will start and I won't even have time to think.  I hope it makes the day go by quicker because right now they seem to drag out. 

This week I am riding the trolley into work as downtown parking is EXPENSIVE.  It's $120 a month to park in our building.  My employer will pay half and I will be responsible for the other $60.  Not too bad.  The Trolley is $20 a week and it drops me off right behind my work building.  If there weren't so many weirdos I might stick to riding the trolley on the daily.  People watching at it's finest.  Yesterday my heart was warmed by this kid who kept giving up his seat for any woman who got on the trolley at different stops. You RARELY see that these days. 

There is a 7-11 in my building at work.  I love 7-11.  This will both be good and bad.  On Monday they gave away free coffee....we still don't know why, but we all got one! :)  If I bring my refill cup the coffee is only $.85, I can handle that.  It's staying away from the snacks that I need to work on!  

I'm thinking I'll be able to quit the second job now that I'll be working longer hours and making more money.  I'm giving it one more week and then we'll see.  I was trying to get Gina hired there before I quit but I don't know if that will happen. 

Sorry for the rambles today....I'm hoping to get a regular posting schedule done at home.  Wish me luck!

Until next time...........ADIOS!!!!

Hump Day Happies....Be Happy!!

Quick post today because I'm crazy busy preparing for my new job! WOOHOO!!! 

I've made the commitment to wake up every morning and be happy.  Sure shitty things happen.  They happen a whole lot more than I would like.  But what is being a bitch and crybaby about it gonna do other then make me and those around me miserable?    Nuthin' honey! 

So I am choosing to be happy.  Not just on Hump Day....but EVERYDAY.  Because who wants to live their life being unhappy? and who wants to be around an unhappy person?  Not this guy.    

So get out there and be happy!

The greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions, and not our circumstances.

Happy Hump Day!!

Hey! It's Okay....

Hey, It's okay to join in on the fun and do it's a Hey, It's okay post! :)
Thanks to the Whispering Writer for the idea!


To have had a little breakdown yesterday.  Sometimes I get tired of being an employee, wife, mom, sister, daughter.  Sometimes my boss, husband, kids, sister and mother all drive me crazy on the same damn day, not to mention Aunt Flo is due to visit any day now.  I just had to let it out. :)  I feel better now. 

To hate having to go in for my yearly exam at the doctors.  I have my appointment tonight and I really don't want to go.  Awkwardly making small talk as you're on your back all exposed.  I can't even think about it. 

To be completely unmotivated at work.  It's my last week here before I start the new gig!  There is a pile of work still on my desk to get through but all I can think about is my shiny new building. 

To be a little nervous about starting my new job.  It's like the first day at a new school.  Will I have friends? Will my new boss be as nice as my old one? Who will I eat lunch with? What if they don't get my jokes? ahhh!!! 

To be sooo happy I have a new little baby to play with....but get to hand back to her parents when I'm tired and ready to go to bed. :)  I love me some babies but I also love that I'm done with that part of my life.  

Until next time.....

Hump Day Happies...New Job

I got the job!!!  I'm so excited, happy, nervous....relieved!!  

I'll be doing the same type of work I do now at a new company.  It's a little closer to my house, benefits are SWEET, and I'll be making more moola!  


This morning I went in for my pre-employment physical and drug screen.  I called late yesterday to schedule it and took the first available appointment.  I was NOT prepared.  I didn't shave my legs, my toes looked like i the only one that gets done up for doctors appointments?  the doc didn't notice.  he was in and out in no time.  

As for me....I had to sit there another 20 minutes because for the life of me I could NOT pee!!  I drank 2 1/2 bottles of water.  That's 1250ml of H20.  All they needed was 50ml and I couldn't do it.  FINALLY I went and squeezed out just enough...barely.   

I was so embarrassed.  I just can't pee on demand.  I'm weird like that.

Thankful Thursday

Sorry I have been MIA this week.  It's been cray.  My emotional day of Friday didn't get any better.  

Having a baby really hurts.  I know that.  Been there, done that.  But seeing it from the other side just brings it all into perspective.  It was really hard seeing my best friend in so much pain and knowing there was nothing I could do to help.  Now I know how my poor husband felt all those years ago.  

Me and my bestie at her baby shower.  I am standing on the stairs so I can look as tall as her.  She has 7 inches on me. :S

At 2:13am after 13 hours of labor my best friend gave birth to Ms. Sophia who weighed in at 9 pounds 2 ounces.  Besides her parents, I was the first person to hold her. <3 font="font">

Please keep in mind it was 3:45am in this picture. :)

My friend kept saying that she was in a lot of pain and it didn't feel like the other times (This was baby #4...crazy right? lol) and she was right.  The next day (ok 6 hours later) things got even worse.  She was losing a lot of blood and had to be taken to the OR.  It was a scary time for us all. I won't go into all the details but with surgery, a blood transfusion and tons of prayers she came out ok.  After 5 days in the hospital she is now home with the baby and resting.

I spent everyday at the hospital helping my friend where I could so I haven't had much time for anything else.  Now that she is home I can breathe a sigh of relief! :D  God is Good!!

Emotional kinda day....

It's not yet noon and I've cried twice already.  I'm not sure what is going on with me but it's pretty annoying.

I cry when I'm sad, when I'm mad and when I'm happy.  I cry a lot sometimes.  

The second set of tears are for a good reason.  My Bestie is on the way to the hospital to give birth to little Sophia Rose.  I'm so excited!!!  I'm going to visit her on my lunch break, then head back to work for a little while, then head straight back to the hospital after work.  He shortest labor was 10 hours so I should be good.  :)  

Please say a prayer for my Bestie and Ms. Sophia!! 

Until next time....ADIOS!!!

Hump Day Happies...Life update

I love Wednesday.  Hump Day. I mean who doesn’t like a good Hump?
What makes you happy today??  We all know what makes us unhappy right?  People tend to focus too much on the negative so for one day let’s just focus on the Happies!

Gina started her new job yesterday.  She is a lifeguard at the local water park.  It’s only for a couple more months but it’s something to get her going.  Earning her own money will be good for her.  She’s got a lot to learn about the real world and we were just about ready to help her learn the hard way. Tough love is tough. 

I interviewed last week with a new company and it went freakin’ great!! They called me yesterday to come in for a second interview with the manager.  I’m stoked.  Any and all prayers will be appreciated. When I get this new job (Faith forward thinking) I will be able to quit my second job.  Woohoo!! 
Did I mention I got a second job?  I did.  I’m crazy.  Straight out of my mind. Insane in the membrane.  It’s not much but it adds up to an extra $320-$400 a month.  My plan is to use that money to build our cushion back up that I depleted when I was living it up as a Real housewife of San Diego unemployed. 

My Bee finally got what she has been longing for.  She is now on the All-Star cheer team she has been begging to try-out for.  I put it off for a year (or two) because it’s so damn expensive.  But I made her a deal, throw your back handspring on your own and you can join.  She had until June 30th to do it and on the last day of tumbling class the little brat did it. Good thing I got that second job.

The kids have been back in school for a week.  My son has the same teacher this year that he had in 1st grade.  This is his first year without his big sister there with him….not that they hung out or anything but it was just comforting knowing she was there.  Bee has moved on to Middle School.  So far so good.  Yesterday she was issued her brand spanking new ipad.  Yes, ipad.  They gave all incoming 7th graders ipads in place of textbooks.  All class and home work will be completed using the ipad.  Technology is cray.   

Until next time……Adios!!!
