Well, the afternoon didn't get much better...workwise anyway.

Not long after my last post I decided to go back downstairs and check to see if the work was done or not...and not only did I find that it wasn't done yet, they had all gone home!!!!!! Without. A. Word. I sat on my hands all afternoon waiting on them and when they got ready to go home, they went! I have never been so livid in my life. Sure...I can understand their day was over and it was time for them to go home, but so was mine and I was waiting on them and they didn't even have the courtesy to give me a call and let me know that they weren't going to finish it - NO. THEY JUST LEFT! I don't have a clue how long they left before I went downstairs either.

I checked all over the place to make sure she wasn't in someone else's office and I even asked her boss - he thought she had gone home for the day, which it turns out he was right.

So...I had decided that I was just going to have to go into work tomorrow, which really aggravated me, but she doesn't come in …

Oh, the agony of it all...

today is my Friday. I am off tomorrow b/c of our 9/80 schedule. Tomorrow is also close for the end of the month, but since I won't be here I pushed my schedules up to today instead. This morning I sent over a list of things I needed to get done by another group for me to close...it is now 4:46 - past the time I am supposed to go home...and is it done?? NOPE!

I have been working on close most of the day dealing with other issues b/c I was sure what I needed from them would be done since I sent the request over at 10:46 this morning. Around 2:00 I was finally finished with all other issues and ready to get finished with everything...hit a couple other snags, more specifically an hour and a half wait on IT, and finally was ready closer to 3:30 at which time I find out this other group still hasn't completed their part for me! Um...hello? What's going on down there? So...after a couple emails to and from them, I just got up and marched my happy butt down to see what the hold up…

We had such a busy, but very productive weekend!

Since I was off Friday mother came over and we spent the day in Old Town Spring. We didn't find exactly what we had gone looking for, but we did have a great time! Afterwards, she and I started to work in my flower beds. We planted an oleander that his mother gave us, & three hibiscus plants before Michael got home. A couple weeks ago, Michael and I built a sidewalk going around to our back gate and we decided to turn all the area between the sidewalk and the house into a flower bed - so after Michael got home the three of us worked on that! In there we planted an an azalea bush & holly tree (which had a little friend living in it), a sweet broom ( I think that's what it's called), and moved my hydrangea b/c where I had it there was too much evening sun on it!

After all that work we decided we were done for the evening...but on Saturday morning got after it again! Mother and daddy came back and daddy and Michael built a fence for a dog run for the pups! I think the…

I am so not in the mood to work today...

there are a lot of people out of the office today since tomorrow is Good Friday. Those on the B schedule of our new 9/80 work schedule have today off anyway, b/c tomrrow would have been their Friday off - since it's a holiday, they get today off. It's really quiet around here. Days like today are usually when I get a lot of work done b/c I don't have a lot of people calling or stopping by my office. Today, though, I am slacking. I never have time to post or read anyone's blogs while I am at work (which I shouldn't be doing anyway I guess), but this morning I went through all my blogrolls and checked in on everyone! I didn't leave any comments, but those who check will see me I guess! I am really behind no my blog reads. I did manage to update Jeans today, though!

It's yucky looking out of my window today. Yesterday was so nice and now the weekend is supposed to turn nasty again. Why on the weekend?? We were talking about going up to East Texas this weekend. …

It's been a while since I posted here...

I can really tell that I am getting beyond that "little overweight" stage b/c my family keeps harping on me about how if I don't be careful about my weight I am going to either become diabetic, have high blood pressure, or heart problems...and even go so far as to say when I have kids if I am too overweight they won't be healthy. That isn't what convinced me that I am beyond that "little overweight" stage, though - what convinced me is that whenever I talk to friends about what my family says instead of getting that familiar, "You aren't even that big..." comment I get silent confirmations that they agree with what my family says...sigh!

No...this isn't a pity party. I know I am overweight. I think since I have been at this job I have gained about 40 pounds. Yep, you read that right. One positive thing is that my weight is distributed very proportionately. I guess that's why I was able to get away with a few added pounds for so lon…

It's allergy time again in South Texas.

You know I grew up in the middle of the Piney Woods & as I hope you can gather by the name, it's full of pine trees!! This time of year the pine trees are full of pollen, mostly noticed on the hoods of all the cars parked outside and also if you stop to look up at the trees!


I never had any problems from the pollen growing up, but over the last six years that I have lived here I have noticed that every year I get a little more sick every year at this time. It doesn't bother me too much during the day, except that I sneeze all day, but in the evening is when I start the coughing and weezing...and when I lay down at night my throat and chest just feel like they completely close up on me and I do good to make it through the night without waking up from coughing - or waking up Michael! After I get up this lasts until about 10:00 and after that everything seems to be alright again, until the evening comes. I think I am going to have to start taking Claritin or something every da…

It's been such a nice weekend...

Yesterday (since I was off) I drove down and picked Michael up from work to have lunch...afterwards I drove over to Elaine's new office to pick her up for lunch (no...I didn't have two lunches...LOL) and we had such a nice time!!! When it was time to take her back to the office I decided to drive over to the mall & I am so glad that I did! I wanted to stop by Origins to pick up some powder and it turns out they were having an "event"...as long as you bought two products, any two products, you received a chair massage, facial, & make-over! Who would say no!?!?

So...I first sat down for my chair massage, which was wonderful & definitely needed, which first started with some aroma-therapy! Ahhh...afterwards, I was moved over to another section where I was given a delightful facial & while this was going on two girls who are in cosmetology at Conroe High School massaged my hands & arms the entire time! After about fifteen minutes of that I was taken ov…

I have tried to publish two posts now

and lost both of them! Maybe this one will actually make it to the WWW!!! It's so beautiful outside today! I wish I had the day off!!!

Tonight we're going to see Kenny Chesney at the rodeo so it's going to be a late night for us. Then Friday night we're going again to see Pat Green and the last night we're going to see Clay Walker! I think we went a lot more last year, but this is plenty this time! I hope we make it in time tonight to see the bull riding before the concert.

We had some excitement on Monday - not the good kind either. Michael called me about four and told me that he had a blowout!! It wouldn't have been too bad except for the fact that his spare was low...so I had to drive down and pick him up so we could go air up his spare tire. Afterwards I followed him to Discount Tire and we bought a replacement for his tire that blew out. When they finally got us taken care of I headed back up to the north side just in time to buy a cup of coffee from the ve…

Happy Birthday Mommy!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMY!!! I HOPE YOU HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!! I LOVE YOU VERY MUCH!

I am getting used to the shorter hair.

It isn't really short by most standards, but after having my hair so long for so long (sorry...hee hee) it seems really short to me! Sunday we went to my sister's house where she, our other sister, and I fixed a b'day dinner for my mother. Her birthday isn't really until tomorrow, but we had it early b/c my daddy had to leave for work yesterday. It was nice, though. And mother didn't even know it was for her birthday. She just thought we were all getting together for dinner! We didn't stay too late, though b/c I had to come back and keep studying. I had my second test last night. I actually took off a half day to go home and study some more before the test. I don't know why I didn't have any confidence about this test. I have been working on it every day. It wasn't nearly as bad as I was afraid it was going to be, though it wasn't an easy test by any stretch! Hopefully our grades will be posted before the weekend! I have a busy weekend and don&#…
