May 13, 2008

So, what has been going on with me? Well I have changed my major, I am now studying Management, specializing in Banking and finance. I am excited to get on with it. David and I are going to be have very full schedules this year. poop. We will both be full time students and having to be able to manage jobs to pay our usual bills.

I have been excercising more. Getting up earlier and doing more everyday. Even though I have changed this I have seemed to have gained 5 lbs. Strange but I also seem to feel different about food. I eat a lot more because I love food, but I never seem to get full so I am filling my day better so I do not sit around and thing about food. I know everyone can not see it but I can. It does not make me feel very good. This morning I got up at about 6:40 poked around on the internet, then went to Waid Park and brisk walked/jogged for 30 min then went to medicate Justin's eye (which is another subject). After that I washed a load of cloths, so now there are no dirty clothes. (also been working on keeping cloths clean rather then having 5 loads of dirty clothes) Then went to the Bruingtons and sewed most of my skirt and cut out all of my strips for a lap quilt. :) Then went to work.

This weekend is the Renn Fair! excitment! Well at least I am excited. Even if we will only be gone for 1 day.

I am also excited to get to work with Justin for 6 weeks. This sounds weird but I want us to bond and for him to act the way he does with Mary with me. No more ears back (or at least not as much as he does now) or attuide. Riding bare back is not as much fun and I will not venture out as much, but a good positive is that I will get a better workout and work on my seat very much. I feel comfortable trotting bare back so I'm still excited.

Anyway enough for a night I need to go to sleep!

Longer Days

I decided that this summer I am going to take better advantage of my days. I have already started getting up when David leaves for work, that would be 6:30! To wake myself I go walking/jogging 2 1/2 miles. I did not walk quite as far today because my shins hurt so bad I was almost walking with a limp.

When I get back I get in the shower to be fully awakened and get dress and then I'm ready for the day, no going back to sleep. I notice that when I do this I clean more because I have more time and do not have kids to watch so i have much more time.

I'm trying not to eat so much. I feel like a fattie because I am constantly thinking of eating when I am bored. but today I went walking and it was kinda cold and the air burned my throught when I jogged so I walked. when I got home I was not sweaty so no shower I just went and ate and entire roll of crescent rolls. he he :( they are good though.

I'm am also making myself cook on nights I am home. Last night we had mini meat loafs they were good but I need to buy some pans. I burnt myself pretty good too. lol I can not be trusted alone in a kitchen.

Some people are ignorant to why servers get mad when people leave them unjustified bad tips. I of course am a server trying hard to pay all my bills every month and still get myself and husband through school because I do not want to serve for the rest of my life. For the past three months I have been paying ALL the bills because david, as much as hes been looking, still does not have a job. I have bought some things for myself and now wish I had not. Now that it is the end of the month and I'm having an off week at work at the worst possible time.
Serving SUCKS. I have to deal with every different kind of person. SOMETIMES I enjoy my job people are nice, and make your job easy. Let me tell you about my weekend...My mannager has somehow decided that I want to work TO GO, well I do not. It does not pay my bills and I end up doing it for free. I worked 10am to 9pm on saturday then 11 to 11 on sunday. By the end I just wanted to sit down and cry. I bussed my own tables to get people down faster just for them to leave me 10% or under. And I am sorry i may have forgotten one drink or a napkin every once and a while but if I was perfect I would be God. It is not my fault your stake came out wrong I only ring the order in, our kitchen does NOT care about the customers. For examole, On tuesday our crappy expo would not expo my food it was ready for 20 min and he just would not expo my food because we do not like each other. SO my table waited 45 min for their food. I know he thinks he messed up my tip, but he didn't because I told my table excatly what happened and that I hated my job while I was trying my very best to fight back tears from being frustrated. Christy quit that night, one of my only bits of sanity because we have a new "chris" (a lazy mannager).
Anyway I got my paycheck. It was $24 for 78 hours of work. 20 hours of TOGO at 5.85, 5 hours as an expo at 8.50, and 53 hours of serving at 2.13. so all that togo and expo work was pretty much free because of taxes having to claim so much from serving. NOW do you see why servers get mad when we do not get a tip? I MAKE 2.13 an hour. I do not mind a bad tip when I deserve it and I know when I deserve it. I do not ever try to give bad service sometimes it just happens. But when it takes me a long time to get you extra dressing or anything like that it is because I have to fight with our worlds crapiest kitchen for anything!!
Sorry for complaining so much but it is very stressful work. believe it or not. I'm having to fight back wanting to cry trying to write this, but I am upset and I think I have reason to be. I can not wait until david gets a job...
On a lighter note, I am doing good in school this semester. I have public speaking. The number 1 fear in america. I got a 90 on my last speech!! Thats an A!!

I have my Radiology interview today for school. This is my second year applying to the radiology program at Virginia Western. I have this strange feeling that I am not going to be getting in this year either. My GPA really sucks, Im rolling in with a 2.59 which is the worst it can be to still apply. I guess thats what I get for not caring my 1st semester in college. I really wish I would not have slacked off so much, now I am retaking class. I did not fail them I just need to bring my GPA up to prove that I can do it. Anyway wish me luck, this is only the begining of interviews and hospital tours.

One and Only

So far we have only had ONE good snow. It was not much but it was fun. I just love these pictures!

David LOVES to drive in the snow. So I made him clean the car off. hehe.

The Chickens were so cute in the snow and I love this picture

We went sleading behind the tractor at David's parents house and it was so much fun. Dixie kept running beside me and I could reach out at pet her it was really fun.

Pretty Things for my House!

I have been working my butt off for the past 2 months. David hasn't had a job and the bills still have to be paid. I've finally got all the bills paid so I decided to buy some stuff for myself, well actually the house.

I bought a new kitchen table which I love. It wasn't my first pick but it was in my price range.

I also bought a DISH WASHER!! No more washing all those dishes by hand! I got a smoking deal
on this, thank you
craigs list.

We also bought a new computer desk, which David was more excited about. It looks much better than our old! You can see he's already taken over, bad habits and all. :(
Well the house is not finished yet I still have more plans, they just require more money. :D
