No More Woodlake

So, Monday I start working in the bright yellow Mini Price office at Towne Center. I will be the only one in there. I think I will be doing ALOT of reading because I will have a LOT of down time...

I'm pretty excited about working closer to home.

Right now I am hungry...and I've got to wait a few more hours before I eat because Zach and I are getting mexican. He doesn't even get off work until 7. I want to go outside to try and finish the painting I started the other day, But I have a feeling it is deathly hot out there. Lame. I think I am going to suck it up anyways.

Short work week next week too because I am going to a family reunion in Ohio. I will be driving up there Friday and driving back Monday. I'm sad Joni's family isn't going, and that I don't get to spend 4th of July with Zach. But I am sure it will be fun.

SO. There are two super crazy people that come into Mini Price on a daily basis. Mr. Zimmerman, and Ms. Gibbs. Ms. Gibbs is rediculous. she has gone into our break room and made herself cookies (we bake Otis Spunkmeyer every morning)  and brew herself coffee. Today she: 
  • Asked Danielle (who is pregnant and about to deliver) how her private parts felt.
  • Dug through the trash to find herself a plastic bag because I told her I didn't have one
  • danced and sung around the store
  • made us turn on music and kept ordering us to turn it up.
  • went behind our counter, got air freshener out and proceeded to spray around the office, especially the cubical she was in.
  • also blasted music at the cubicle she was in and was singing LOUDLY in there.
It really just blows my mind. She is not right in the head.

Now I need a snack and I am going to paint.

Over It.

Seriously, I am just over everything.

 I miss my cubical, lunch at my moms, internet access,  and my blog.

I'm sick of working at mini price. It is such a mindless unchallenging job. I just get so BORED by the end of the day I am so antsy that I don't know what to do with myself.  The employees there only do what they have to to get by. They slack off and throw most of the work over for me to do. Which I like to keep busy but it bothers me that they do the bare minimum. When the manager is there they keep busy at least. To top it off some of them are rude and go out of their way to ignore me. I had to Force my self on some of them to get trained.

At least I know I don't have much longer and I hope towne center is better.

But I am super angry right now. Zach... just I don't even KNOW what the heck happened. But I did not feel like I was dealing with an adult tonight. Seriously I tried REAL hard to be patient and it did absolutely no good. So my night is for shit. I have nothing to eat for dinner and now its late so I don't want to go to the grocery then come home an make something. I am just so frustrated and furious. If he sees this I will also probably be in big trouble BUT...oh well, I need an outlet right now and this is all I got. I am just at a loss for words. I just feel like I need to let something out. 

Ever since I started training at mini price I just feel like I've been so frustrated and now this just was the icing on the cake. Bah.

You know you're mad when you're angry to the point of tears.

So, I have started looking for home inspiration. I was looking for bookcase / bookshelf ideas since I want to have a rather large one covering the wall on the kitchen side of what is now my "dining room". I wanted to find something a bit interesting that could house my books and possibly dunny's as well. I also wanted something that Zach could make himself. Since he tells me he can "make anything out of wood" HA. well I hope he can handle this project, and I am sure I will find out... Here are some pictures I found while on my hunt...
I like the more irregular designs. I also like those big wall cube units like ikea has with a bunch of squares... but I think id rather have different size shelves because I have little books as well as rather large art books. Next to dunnys, books are probably my next largest collection and it will expand. So I want a pretty large bookshelf. Home decorating is just so exciting to me. I also found a site that I may buy a loveseat from they are relatively inexpensive and have a pretty good selection of fabrics. This is the one I like the most.. But I will continue my hunt. The monroe loveseat, and the Quasar Latte fabric....


So I read on another blog about this site that allows you to turn your blog into a book. which is pretty interesting I think. The site is called Blurb . They do other books too, but the blog book was something I hadn't heard of before. I love books so of course I love this idea. And as I get older and more busy it is harder and harder for me to find the time to be creative and write in my diary/ journal sketchbook. Which is kind of sad since I love looking back at them from high school and everything. Extremely amusing, and interesting because I can really tell how much I have changed since I was 16. My blog is just more accessible now a days, even if it isn't as personal as my diary.

Actually writing this is making me want to try and go back to writing, drawing etc. in my journal again. Maybe I will post some pictures from my actual journal rather than one I just found online.I love this boy.

So it has been thundering for a good 45 minutes.. It has just now started to rain... Nice big chubby rain too.

I had a super busy weekend. Tried to see Up but it was sold out. So Zach and I saw The Hangover instead. Which was pretty funny. We also had a nice dinner at 501. I had a very good weekend.

Ran 7 miles on Sunday. My farthest yet. I was worn out for the rest of the day though. I think I am consistently running about 10 minute miles now. Which is pretty good.

So there may be new things in store for me at work. I may be moving offices and completely venturing into something totally different. But we shall see I don't know much about it yet... but it is possible I will be working at town center which is considerably closer to home, which is a nice change to the 20 minute or longer drive to martin engineering which is smack dab in the middle of pain in the butt road construction. I don't mind Martin Eng. but I feel a little out of place at times seeing that I don't work for the company and my "co-workers" here aren't even really my co-workers. I'm just a misfit! Regardless it will be interesting to see how all of this plays out.

Tonight I want to get Rita's since I didn't feed my craving yesterday and I am going to relax and read and go to bed early. Because I am totally worn out from the past 4 days. I really just want to spend some time alone because I feel like I've been with people constantly for the past however many days. It will be nice to have some time to myself.

True blood starts Sunday. Super excited. Also so you think you can dance is on tomorrow and it is the first of the real dancing voting shows. Pretty stoked.

After like 45 minutes waiting at Verizon yesterday I got a new Envy 2 coming to me in the mail. Can't wait to have a send button that works! I'm worried activating and transferring numbers myself is going to be confusing. I hope it's not.

I've started exploring furniture since Zach and I starting to decorate is getting closer and closer. I can't wait. Maybe I will start posting ideas....

Lil cuties.

It's Blitz

The New Yeah Yeah Yeah's Cd is just SO good! I am loving it. I believe my favorites are Heads Rill Roll, Runaway, and Hysteric. Ashley likes Dull Life. Really I can't say there is a song I dislike on the whole CD.

I am definitely ready for the weekend to come. I've just got to sit out this workday. Don't really know what is in store. Zach has the whole weekend off which is a pretty rare thing. Today is his last day at best buy! Pretty exciting. He starts at Mini Price on Monday. I know that we wanted to see UP this weekend. Jamies Lazy Mother's cookout thing is Sunday. So I know we will go to that for a bit too. Hopefully a good weekend is in store!

New additions to my army.

So I have gotten Zach addicted to Dunny's and it seems to have happened overnight. He used to give me such a hard time about getting them now HE can't stop bidding on them on Ebay! So thanks to him we have now got these two added to my collection. I think I've got almost 60 total now.


Okay due to the fact this has happened MULTIPLE times I feel the need to vent about it.

The receptionist here in my office is five months pregnant. Which I think should be well past the morning sickness stage.

Tuesday I was sitting in my cubicle and I hear a weird burping/ throwing up kind of noise. Followed by a lot of spitting. And I was sitting here thinking OMG she totally just threw up. Gross. If you don't already know, I am completely Horrified by throw up. It seriously freaks me out. So I was way too uncomfortable to say anything or look up over my cubicle wall. Then she goes and tells brad shes been sick up at her desk. Worse fears confirmed! I guess she just couldn't make it to the bathroom. Which I've heard her throw up there before which still grosses me out and makes me not want to use the bathroom but not NEARLY as bad as 5 feet away with nothing blocking out the sound.

Today it happened AGAIN. Only this time she proceeded to talk to me about it. and consistantly spit in front of me. Thank god the little intern Nate wasn't here to witness it! since he doesn't even have a cubical wall shielding him from her. So I convinced her to just go home. And she was telling me how much it smelled and said that she was going to tie the trash bag up since it had throw up chunks in it. YUCK YUCK YUCK YUCK. WHY would you tell someone that! SERIOUSLY???? I don't know if she took the bag out to the trash before she left but there is Absolutely no way I am checking.

Regardless I am beyond words and really really wishing I could be moved into the sifen office. I don't know if I can handle anymore!

Peach and Blueberry Cobbler

So I made some delicious peach and blueberry cobbler last night. It was eaten with vanilla icecream and is almost completely gone already. I guess Zach and Kyle really liked it. It looks kinda sloppy but it was super good!

I love baking and I love dessert, especially fruit dessert. Not sure what I'll make next.
