Last week was a stressful week at work. One night after work when I got off at like 7 PM I stopped in at Borders. I wasn't exactly sure what I was going to get. I had a few ideas. I looked around for 20 minutes or so and decided to take my sisters advice. She was or had read the House of Night Series. I bought Book 1 (i think there are 7 total) and started reading it. I wasn't too sure about it. It was good but I wasn't hooked until a day or two ago. It's 1:30 in the morning. I just finished it and can't wait to get book 2. Love reading. Why I ever hated it, I wish I knew.
Also. I highly recommend the Hunger Games. If you haven't read it, I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's emotional yes, but stick through it. :)
PS - If anyone wants to buy this book from me I'll give you a great deal!
Today is my birthday. It was a great day so far. Started out by getting my first gift last night at midnight. I got a remote start for my jeep! I am so stoked! I used to park in the Garage when I owned our house so it sucks to scrap my windows and have to start my car or drive in the cold! So excited!!! Then I got donuts for work (not for my birthday but because it's friday and we do treats every friday). There was a "Happy Birthday" sign on my door and a card on my desk. Love my co-workers. I went to lunch with my best friend to Olive Garden. I got two sets of flowers delivered to work. They are beautiful!! Then I got some new shoes from my mom, two pairs. I went to a craft fair with my mom and sister and my mom bought me some jewelry. Then off to dinner with my friends. Texas Roadhouse. I said I'd only go there IF... I didn't have ride the saddle... well I did. It's been a great day. I'm going out on Sunday with my family. So it'll be a good weekend. Just another year older. But this year was the first birthday without Jason and his family and it was actually really hard. I did get a card in the mail from his parents. I know we are divorced but I still love and miss his family dearly. But none the less my day was great and I'm off to go do more fun adventures, maybe a movie?
I went shopping with my mom and sister yesterday and actually found alot of things I want to buy... One however I decided to make. So today I drew this by hand and my dad helped me get it all cut out. I painted many coats and then put it together. My dad helped me make it look great though! he's so creative. I love it. I think i'm taking it to work for my desk.
I'm so slacking on posting to this blog or doing anything online lately. I have been working a ton and life has been a little stressful and crazy. So... here's my update!
Work: is still crazy! I worked till 9 last night till 8 tonight and like 6:30 or something on tuesday. It goes in spans though. Some weeks I work 7:30 till 5 or 6 but this week there is lots to do! I love my job. Even as busy and as stressful as it may be some days. I intimately want to go to work every single day. I enjoy what I do and the people that are there are great!
Dance: We are almost ready for the November fest at coming up in a few weeks. Exciting. I am now only teaching monday and wednesday because work is so busy i have tuesdays and thursdays to catch up.
Dating: WHY IS IT SO COMPLICATED??? Ugh. I almost think being single forever would be ok. Except for the lonely feeling I get all the time. I need a companion. But really? Drama Drama Drama and I'm not really looking for a serious relationship right now but all the "just dating" relationships are filled with more complications than I am beginning to think I can handle.
Living: I am still at my mom's, although I think I see her maybe 2 or 3 days a week. Her and my dad go to bed early and I'm a night owl. They get up before me and I usually get home after they have went to bed. But I do like it for a few reasons. They take care of Max for me while I'm gone. Poor guy. He is so lonely sometimes too. It's good for him to play with Quincy. I really do like having or knowing that I'm not the only one home, unlike if I got my own place. Their house is central. Easy to get to and go basically anywhere and it's close to town.
Max: oh poor guy. I got his hair cut before halloween and he was so matted they cut it way short! He looks good but I'm sure he is freezing outside now with the cold.

Time of Year: I love this time of year. I love the fall. I'm so excited for the Holidays! I bought my snowboarding season pass to Beaver and can't wait to use it! I'd better get my money's worth! :) I'm sure I will. Matt, a really good friend at work, will ensure we get our money's worth! I hope I improve. I just gotta not be scared to try something new!
Boat: The boat is winterized and covered. With a motor heater no cracks in the block this year!
Books: I read The Hunger Games... LOVED IT! I bought the Box Set and would highly recommend this series to anyone.
Well that's about all my brain can take tonight. Quite the update right? Well it's something.
