I buckled...

But in my defense it is November 29th and they will not "technically" be here until after the first...Sooooo

These may look a little familar too.... Yeah I ordered a pair for Kelli too and she got them last week. These were the shoes that were MIA when we got back to the hotel in Vegas? This story? Well I decided they were too pretty to just RIP so I sent Kelli a pair to replace the ones that were left** in Vegas and I got myself a pair too!!

** It was all my fault too. I was responsable to hold the shoes while Kelli held me up. Although the shoes were dropped about 1 million time out of 4 only one was lost. Still a success story if you ask me!!

It's pretty bad when you have to bribe yourself!

So I am a procrastinator... A huge procrastinator about going to the gym and I have been telling myself all week that "I am going to go back"

So umm yeah a week later I still have not gone. So tonight I bribed myself.

If I did not go to the gym, I could not watch The Hills.

I made it to the gym. lol

So my next bribe to myself is if I make it 7 days this week it will be December 1st.

December 1st is the day I can buy shoes.

If I go 7 days. I GET TO PICK A PAIR OF SHOES to buy!!!

And that is how it is going to work. 7 days at the gym = NEW SHOES!!

How cool is that. Get in shape AND control my shoe shopping? So my goal is to lose 40 pounds by May. May is when I go home to Canada again. And that will put me back at my weight before I broke my neck. So you will see a ticker on my side bar of how far I have to go.. Uggg

I can do this!

The best sister of the year award goes to....

ME!!! Or at least I am a contender. This is my baby sisters Christmas gift. She is moving into her own place (she is 21) on December 1st and has NOTHING to move in with. This is my contribution.. I am SO excited for her to see it!!

Yes its a HUGE stack of towels. But I LOVE towels. And I believe you can never have too many towels. And its her first place....

Did you count? There is 12 of them. I had to make sure she had at least 4 pink ones. Well because she is a girl and pink ROCKS!!

And VOILA her Roxy shower curtain. I loved it the minute I saw it and thought it would be perfect!!

What do you think?

Is it just me?

Have you ever noticed when you go grocery shopping as you are finishing up you size up all the lines and choose the one you think will go the fastest?

And then you have actually gotten into the line with the little old lady who questions EVERYTHING on her bill (before leaving) and then pulls out her check book and starts to write a check?

Or the 1 person in front of you "forgot" something and will be RIGHT BACK?

Yeah it never fails. No matter what line I choose its always the slowest.

This made my weekend

I work the PT restaurant job every Sunday. I like the Sunday crowd. I had a table write this note on a napkin for me today


It's refreshing to meet someone with such a good, big heart. Thanks for taking the time to tell me about rescuing a dog.... it definitley re-inspired me to find one at a shelter. Keep on having the passion for the little guys!

Have a great night!

Terry + Alexia

If I get one maybe I could email pics, love to see your lil' Chihuahua

How cool is that?

Open Letters

Dear Local Post Office:

You are a bunch of fuckers. You read that right. Fuckers. Just because we live in a small town does not mean when someone calls in sick (like this past Friday) you can just REFUSE to sort the mail for your local Gov offices.

This means I received 5 times the amount of deposits today and you can kiss my ass.

Another reason small towns BITE ASS.

Dear Everyone in my little office:

Your a bunch of digbats. Seriously thank you for the entertainment. Just because both supervisors are away does not make "everyone" else the boss. It is very entertaining to watch you all run around jockeying for position.
Sure I will listen to you all talk shit about each other, it makes me laugh. You all need to get a life.

LMAO fly on the wall

Dear inventor of the electric blanket:

Where have you been all my life. Its like falling in love EVERYDAY. And why did you not make me purchase one 10 year ago. I mean serious. This is fucking AWESOME. I confess my love to you every day.

I love you
Thank you

Me and my VERY warm toes.

Getting to know your neighbors

"Hi I think you hit my wife's car when you were backing up this morning?"

"Oh well lets go look, I do not think I hit her car but if I did lets go have a look"

He totally "confessed" and by that I mean he took full responsibility and offered to pay for everything. Just told us to let him know how much.

The license plate fit PERFECT into his trailer hitch of his truck so there was really no question.

He claims to not have heard or "thought" he did it, but if we said he did then he must have.....

Which is REALLY a relief however its strange that "he can not recall" but he is "always in a hurry" so it is possible.... Umm yeah.

But I called the police anyways just in case. Just in case our meeting did not go so well and he denied everything.... And also to see what recourse I would have if he said he did not do it. Seeing how I never saw it done...

Umm yeah the neighbors that moved in like 2 weeks ago and we get to meet them telling them he backed into my car and and would they "please pay for the repairs"

About the future of America.

I am so thankful that I am witness to this. In this time and day, I am excited for the change.

McCain just conceded and congratulated Obama.

It was a landslide. Electoral votes: Obama - 338 McCain - 129 (at 9:48pm)

Wow, wow, wow!!!

And that is all I will say about that!!!

Congratulations Obama.... and America

Regardless of who you voted for, or even if you agree.... America has come a LONG way...

Hurry up and wait..

I wish we knew when and where we were moving....

In job news both my managers are gone on Friday for a week.. Not sure why I am so excited about that but I really am. I can slack off like the best of them so "Bring it on!!"

Did I mention my whole family forgot my birthday in October? Well these were the flowers my dad sent me to apologize... Its funny that EVERYONE forgot the same year. All 5 of my dad... all my friends with the exception of Salinna who called me and her kids sang me happy birthday...

I HOPE EVERYONE GOT OUT TO VOTE TODAY!! I am so excited to see how this all works out!!

Day one of no buying any shoes

It went well.

I actually had a few things to pick up yesterday and I hit up my usual haunts.

I found one cute pair that I really liked. Thought to myself "Do I need these shoes" and moved on...

I think as long as I do not go and "look" I will be fine.

I am also starting something new for November. Yeah I am going to try to work out 1 hour a day EVERY day in November and see how that works. I am not going to change the way I eat, which really is not all that bad and see how much weight I can lose... This will get interesting I am sure!

Hope everyone had a safe and fun Halloween!!
