I will be super busy tomorrow and will not have a chance to tell you then. I am super excited, I will be up all night finishing the small things that need to be finished. I will post pictures on Saturday ( I lucked out, and get Friday, Saturday, Monday and Tuesday off, and I will need a day to recover. I tell you what). This will be our best Halloween yet, I am positive of it. I am super super excited because my BFF Amber will be doing the entire day with us tomorrow. Here is our schedule...
8am Wake up, get the boy ready for school.
9am Drop the boy off at school.
9:05am Finish cleaning the house and getting the last few things up for the night.
12:30pm Pick up the boy from school (half days all week).
----- Not sure what time Amber is coming over, but she should be here some time around noon, I think?!?!
2:30pm Get our costumes on.
3pm Get in the car, and head to Grandma Punteney's work
3:30pm Get to Grandma's work and trick-or-treat there (really fun!!)
5:30 pm Be on the road for home
6:00pm Lets get ready for the night, time to light pumpkins, plug in lights turn on strobe lights and get the smoke machine rolling!!!
11pm Go to bed, it has been a long long day!!

Don't know about you, but I think tomorrow is going to be super RAD!!! PS, I have seen 2 Christmas commercials today. Wow.

I really have nothing to say, I just felt like blogging. I keep reading my cousins blog wondering what her secret is. It is killing me. My theory is that one of her embryos "split" making twins, and they implanted another egg on top of that, making a whopping 3 babies. That would be rad.

I voted by mail, so I am done already. I am very excited to see the out come, in many areas.

Sleep little baby, sleep

Well, I think we are on the edge of naps going away. I put Bella down about 30-45 minutes ago, and she is just having a blast playing, but not sleeping. I can hear her squealing, thumping and talking. I have also heard the distinct sounds of her Cabbage Patch Kids hitting the floor (twins, they have both gone over). I NEED her to take naps. I will go crazy if she is done with naps. We went through this yesterday too, and it took her 75 minutes to fall asleep, and then I had to get her up a short time later to go pick up Spencer at school. She gets a ton of sleep at night, about 10-11 hours, so I am sure that is why she is not napping any more. That and she is getting old :( .

So, being a home owner can suck ass. Just within the last week this has happened... We found the roof upstairs has been leaking and the walls were wet. Water has pooled under the paint making little pockets of water. Great, I know. My mom is freaking me out about mold, but until we know that the leak is fixed, we cant really do anything about the drywall. I am sure that this will be a huge pain in my ass.

Then... a few months after we moved in, Spencer accidentally dropped a glass in the bathroom sink down stairs and cracked it. It was fine, not leaking, but in the last few weeks the crack has gotten bigger and bigger. Yesterday it gave out. We had to replace it. It was a pedestal sink, and we decided to get a vanity. I love the choice I made, however, nothing is ever as easy as it should be. It would have been fine, but there is a baseboard making it so the sink can not be pushed up to the wall (aka, the way to glue it down). We then went to pull the baseboard out when Johns 5-in-1 broke off behind it. That is when he decided he was done for the night. So, we still have no sink in the bathroom, and now have to paint because the baseboard took allot of paint off with it. Damn it. Where is the freaking landlord when you need him!! We plan on redoing the entire bathroom some day, rearranging it so it flows better, but we just can not afford that project right now. John wants to just do it now, what better time, but again, we can not afford it. Not with the holidays coming up, and them cutting our hours back at work for the season.

So all this comes at a wonderful time. I still have to make Halloween costumes, a coffin, a guillotine, work, clean ect..... Wow, I want to regress and be a baby again. I want my mommy again.

2008 District Cashier Olympics

Well last night was the District Cashier Olympics. It was crazy, I had no idea how crazy Home Depot people were. It was very loud, there were cheers, and there were costumes. We had to come up with a theme, and I chose before realizing how freaking crazy those people were. We went with the 60's/70's. I tie dyed some shirts, and iron-on'ed our names, store number and some rad sayings on the back. It looked ok, but compared to the others, it was sort of boring.
The event itself was sooo fun. Words can not express how freaking crazy it was, if you ever get the chance to partake in this event (a friend works there, or family member), you must do it.

Here are the back of the shirts I made. Vanessa's said "Can you dig it?", Andrew's said "Keep on Trucking", Nate's said "Outa site", and Brandy's said Groovy". You cant see mine, but it said "What it is jive turkey".

Andrew, Vanessa and myself posing with Homer D. Poe!!! Cool Huh!!
All the crazy cashiers, and other THD employees. Just crazy!!
Showing her pride, for the store too!!

Vanessa and Andrew on the way, we are super excited, can you tell?!?!
This would be our ASM Nate. Best picture ever!!! I am so proud of him for actually following through with wearing this. Now that is a man!!
Shaft, shut you mouth!!
Group picture. Love it.
Andrew during the ringing contest. We did not win any prizes, but there were 3 districts there, each district had at least 10 stores. That is 30 cashiers competing. He only missed one, but it was a timed event too. We are still proud of the work Vanessa and Andrew did.

Count down to Halloween

Well, I only have a few more days left to make the coffin. I am a bit stressed. To be honest, there are better things I could be spending my money on then more decorations, but I don't want to get into how much money I do or do not have. I am making the coffin out of foam board, duct taped together. I found the plans on the internet, and think it will turn out really well. Spooky blues Halloween, look into it, it is way cool. I am only going to make one now, but I will try to make at least one more before next Halloween. We still have 4 of the head stones left, so we are only going to use those this year. I really let time get away from me, and hope to be more organized next year, yeah right. Do you think that time will ever slow down? Yeah, I did not think so. Oh well.

Well, we have lived in our house for a year now. Speaking of time flying. Wow. Bella is going to be 2 in just weeks, and my son is driving now. Ok, not yet, but he may as well be. Turn turn...

Guess who did not win the ebay thing!! What are the freaking chances that there were 30 minutes left, 26dollars shipping and I lost?!?! I am so happy!!!

Stupid Ebay

So I just did something stupid. I bid on something with out really paying attention to the shipping price. Oh yeah, the item was 1.00, and I thought the shipping price was 10.00, but that was the buy it now price. The shipping was 26.00!!!!!! I am a dead woman!! No way anyone else is going to bid on it, it ends in like an hour!! Damn, lesson learned.

Back to work today...

Damn, I really do not want to go back to work. Really really really don't want to. I have had the most relaxing 5 days off, and tonight, the shit will start again. My skin is nice again, I have not had a headache in a few days, no poops... ect. Not to mention, my house has looked good for 5 days in a row now. I just wish I did not have to work. We have gone and gotten ourselves all caught up in the American dream, aka... I have to work.

On a happier note, this Sunday is the Cashier Olympics (a competition between any cashiers that want to play) and it will be fun. I will get a few extra hours on my pay check too. That will be nice. Next Sunday is the district Olympics, so I will get to go to that (and get paid too!!) too. I am a bit nervous about the district Olympics, doing stuff like that is out of my comfort level, but I am sure it will be fun. We are going to cheer on the winners of the in store games. I will not be playing, I am organizing it all, plus I am a head cashier so we are not aloud to play. Thank God. I would not have the "you know whats" to play.

Saturday, October 4, 2008

Oh yeah...

So it crossed my mind that I forgot to tell everyone that I did get that second job. It will only give me 5-6 more hours a week, but times that by what I make, and it adds up rather quickly.

It has been brought to my attention that I am too public with my information. I am trying very hard not to use the wrong words. I have a problem with blogging my heart out, but I will always do it. I feel it is my right as an American to be able to wright what I want to wright. I have been going through some hard times, mentally, but I have resolved the problems that have made me so upset. I get us into problems, and I get us out of them too. Please do not worry about me. This blog is my emotional outlet, and it works for me.

That all being said, we are having a nice day today. John and Spencer did their Cub Scout thing today, and tomorrow they are doing the Oyster Fest thing. Spencer was so happy to do it, and that makes me happy. I can not wait until John gets his stupid Den Leader shirt. Don't you worry, I will be posting pictures!!! Spencer will be so handsome in his uniform, so proper. Bella and I met my mom in town today, and while we were gone, John did the dishes and mopped the kitchen. Very shocking. It will make decorating for Halloween that much easier today. I can not decorate in a dirty house. I just can not do it. Funny, I need a clean house, so I can make it look old and haunted. Go figure. We will still need to get some corn stalks, but we are going to the Cider Mill tomorrow, and I figure they will have them for sale. Don't know what they cost, but I am sure it will not be all that bad. For heavens sake, it is just dead corn!!

How to Kill Your Boss................Or Anyone

Does your boss need to be relieved of his/her position? This article gives a step-by-step how-to guide, while also avoiding those pesky little coppers.......

1. Decide on your weapon of choice.......What weapon should I choose?? Well, you're in luck! There are millions of products made just for this purpose. The knife?? Well, the knife is the traditional route and really cannot be beat (unless you choose this method!). However, it is a little messy and clean up can be tricky. Garden tools?? I know what you're thinking, how come I never thought of that?!? They are a variety of gardening tools with plenty of sharp ends!! Oh, and don't forget the most important gardening-killing tool of all, your SHOVEL!! By gun??? This choice has been the overall favorite of one-time killers for over a century and well, you can blame them?? (Note that this is for one-time killers, serial killers should refer to the other two options.) No clean up, it's quick, what more could you want?? (Less fingerprints of course!!) Any method you choose will be sufficient so long as the heart is stopped and there is no breathing.

2. I've killed them, now what?Since you have accomplished your goal it would seem you're done right?? Wrong!!! Time to hide the body. There are various ways to do this and everyone seems to have their own preference. One-way is to go deep into the nearest wooded area and dump the body. This is the traditional way to go and usually results in some jail time. Another way is to mail the dead body to Costa Rica. (By the time they find the body, providing you have done the embalming procedure, YOU can be out of the country as well!!!) Lastly you can always blame it on someone else. Really, just stage it so the other coworkers look guilty..........get them to the scene of the crime (conveniently after you've left, without use of a cell phone) and call the police from a telephone booth, or even better from the coworker's house!!

3. What to tell the police.............DO NOT PANIC!! Tell the police you were with your dementia-crazed grandmother (or other suitable crazy family member). If you do not possess a dementia-crazed family member simply tell them you were engaging in child pornography. (Well, it does distract them from the reason they initially questioned you doesn't it??) And remember, whatever you do, DO NOT tell them you were with the victim at the time the homicide occurred.

4. I'm guilty, what should I do? Should I confess??Yes, you are guilty but was it really your fault?? I mean, really couldn't your boss have done more?? Couldn't he/she have tried just a little harder?? After all the time you have put in at the office, all of THEIR work that YOU have done, couldn't they have just given a little more??? Called you into their office less?? Given you more than just a $0.15 raise?? And could they at least foot half of your psychiatrist bill seeing as how they are the one that caused those psychiatry visits anyhow??If you're still guilty after reading this I suggest converting to Catholicism. After all, all you have to do is confess to the priest and do a few Hail Mary's and bodda bing bodda boom!! You're forgiven!! *Beware, by law the priest is forced to notify the authorities of your recent killing spree.

*5. The good news...........The good news is now that you're in jail you have all the time in the world to get into shape, read that book you haven't had the time for, and to write all those E-mails!!!


Well I really could not be more excited that it is October. I am officially on vacation today, and do not have to go back until Wednesday. Sweet. Our plans for this weekend (John has taken Saturday off so we will have Sat-Mon off together)...
* Our closet did not get cleaned and organized yet. The house came with some "shelves" up there so I plan on cutting them and making them work for us.
* In order to organize our closet, I have to wash ALL the laundry. I am ok with that. I don't mind doing the laundry if I have a place to put it when I am done.
* We are going to the Cider Mill, depending on the weather. I don't mind wet and cold, I just don't think we should go if it is raining.
*Decorate for Halloween. We always decorate the day we come home from the ocean, but we are not going to the ocean, so we are going to take advantage of out time and do it tomorrow. Very excited about that. I picked up some really cool things at the Walmart yesterday. I need to go to Michales and get some more pieces to my "puzzle", the house will look amazing.
*Spencer will be cleaning his room and the toy room, but he doesn't know that yet.
*I would love to get my crafts together and have a little craft sale in the living room at some point in the near feature. I did not sell anything on Ebay, and I am getting very frustrated. I think that if I made a handful more this week, I could have enough to have the garage/craft sale I wanted to have (that John talked me out of doing). The only problem is I work weekends, this is the only weekend I am going to have off until December. I guess I could trust John to do it on a Sunday while I was at work. I guess.

Well, those are our plans for the weekend. Nothing too crazy. Most of it I am happy to do. Wait, this just in... John has to do Cub Scout things tomorrow. Have I told you that Spencer is a Cub Scout now? Yeah, on top of that , John is the Scout Leader. John and Spencer will be doing something at Hollywood video tomorrow, and then we have to go to the Oyster Festival on Sunday, so they can do whatever the hell a Cub Scout does. Who knows. I just hope the weather holds out for the Oyster Fest on Sunday. Well, I guess it is going to be a bit more busy than I thought it was going to be.

Guess who is freaking sick again...

Yep, it is me!! Luck girl, it just would not be normal if I did not get a cold every other week. I need to wash my hands more is the only conclusion I can come up with. This cold is a bad one, I am sore from head to toe. Well, it doesn't help that we went back to the gym for the first time in like 2 months yesterday. Not a good thing, I hurt bad. I want my mommy.
