2. My faith in God. Jesus rocks my socks off!
3. My friends. My true friends. My blog friends. You guys rock!
4. My job. As much as it drives me crazy sometimes, I do love it a lot of the time. Because hello, we're walmart where every kiss begins with a W, H is for hobbit, and 9 is the new midnight. You'd have to work at my walmart to understand that joke (:
5. School. I love court reporting. I love the instructors, the people I go to school with, and the challenge.

9. Chocolate. Chocolate is another one of my addictions and I am very thankful for it!
10. My furbabies. Cooper loves me unconditionally, and Leader, when I visit my Mom's house goes crazy.
11. Small town life. If you remember my post from a couple months ago, I love my Smalltown USA.
12. Men. I am thankful to have eye candy. Especially country boys!
13. Worn jeans. I love jeans that have the worn look.

20. Being able to learn new things.

I'm Blank Because


one of my favorite senior pictures (:
Saw this on Little Miss Momma!

I’m weird because…
I can’t sleep with my hair up.
I love eggnog.
I love wearing guys' hoodies.
I love spending time with my stepmomma.
I can sing the ABC's backwards.
I would rather be alone more than be around a group of people.
I have to have music on to fall asleep.
I do a happy dance when I get a package in the mail.

I hate mowing, I would rather do 100 loads of laundry then mow a single yard, unfortunately, my Dad owns a lawn care biz.




I’m a bad friend because…

I am not very good at sugar coating things.
I am terrible at returning phone calls. I do text back quicker!
I would rather go to someone's house than have them over to mine.
I always say what I’m thinking.

I’m a good friend because…
I am very loyal.
I treat my friends as if they were family.
I will always be there for you. No matter what.

I'm sad because...
My grandparents are in Arizona.
The crap that is going on with Mady right now.

I sometimes let little things get in the way of the big picture.
I need to be better at letting things roll off my back.
My mouth hurts. Dumb braces.

I’m happy because…
My stepmom trusts me with everything.
I get to see my mom and everyone this weekend!
Thanksgiving is Thursday.
I have the whole weekend off.

I’m excited for…
My grandparents being home most of December and half of January.
Brad Paisley concert in January.
Christmas.
Working Black Friday.
Watching my cousin in the state football game on Saturday.
Getting to see my Granny this weekend.
Family time.

I'd love to see your answers as well! Write a post and then link it up with Little Miss Momma!

CMA Recap!

Who watched the CMA's?
I totally forgot to DVR them, so I caught the last half hour or so, but I've heard it was a great show. I'm still going to recap the winners and my thoughts about them & I might sneak in a few pictures of their attire as well!



Yeah, Scotty McCreery, you can just call me obsessed. It's pretty much ridiculous about how much I <3 his voice and his good looks!


I loved Miranda's first dress!

Blake Shelton was uber good looking as always!

(via )

Now, onto the awards themselves!

Single of the Year went to If I Die Young by The Band Perry, and honestly, it was the best choice, although I do love A Little Bit Stronger by Sara Evans :D

Song of the Year also went to If I Die Young by The Band Perry, now for this one, I think Dirt Road Anthem would have been a better choice, but that's because I love Jason Aldean rapping.

Vocal Duo: Sugarland. Awesome duo. Their music is just catchy! My second pick would have been Thompson Square, but they are a lot newer than Sugarland.

Album of The Year: My Kinda Party, Jason Aldean. This was a great choice! His album had more than just a couple great songs on there, second choice would have been Blake Shelton's All About Tonight.

Vocal Group of the Year: Lady Antebellum! This again was another great choice! None of the others really had an over the top year like Lady A did!

New Artist of the Year: The Band Perry. Honestly, I feel like their group was good, but not good enough to get three awards. I would have liked to see Thompson Square get it. The other three nominees weren't new at all. I don't understand why they were included in that group!

Male Vocalist: Blake Shelton! I <3 me some Blake Shelton, so I was very happy that he won it. Jason Aldean would be my close second choice!

Female Vocalist: Miranda Lambert. Loved that she won it! I loved her acceptance speech as well and her hubby's reaction to it! I love her song Baggage Claim as well.

Entertainer of the Year: Taylor Swift. Okay, I like Taylor Swift, I really do, but I just don't think she had the year to deserve this award! I would have loved to see Brad or Blake win it!

So did you watch the CMA's? What was your favorite dress/outfit of the night, and who did YOU want to win what award?

Smalltown USA

When I was first born, I lived in a town about half hour away from the Twin Cities. The same town I actually go to school in now. When I was 7, my parents divorced. My mom and my brother and I moved to a town about 10 minutes from Minneapolis. I was ok with the move and didn't really realize how much I didn't like living that close to the city until I was in my junior high/high school years when I realized how I loved visiting my dad about an hour away from the cities. I didn't realize how much I truly loved it til I moved to my dad's after graduating high school.

I love the small town feel. I am asked often if I would ever move closer to the cities again, and honestly I find hard to say anything other than no. I love my town. I love the way when someone is hurting the whole community gathers around their family. I love the fact that everybody knows everybody. I'm enthralled with the fact that I can tell people who my parents and grandparents are, and nine times out of ten they know who I am referring to, and give me some sort of story or anecdote about them.

I love where I live. I am ten minutes either way from two medium sized cities. My grandparents and aunt and uncle live on the street behind us. I never wonder who would be there for me if something were to happen.

I have noticed living here for the last year and few months how NICE people are around here for the most part. They rarely make you feel like you're a burden and most of the time have a smile for you and a good word to give. It's like the line from the Kenny Chesney song "Boys of Fall" I've got your number, I got your back when your back's against the wall, you mess with one man you got us all.

I am very blessed to call this place home & do not take it for granted.

By the way, this is my first link-up for Pour Your Heart Out.

Life Update

Time for a major life update, I've been kind of absent around these parts.

Twins Game-- The Twins game we went to that my dad was getting honored at was FUN! I got to hang with my grandparents--both sides (: it twas amazingg! They did end up losing though.

Camping-- Camping was really fun as well! Mady & I were accused of being anti-social though. Sorry people, when I have to be social all week at work & school, I need ME time, which some can consider anti-social, but whatevs. Got eaten alive by mosquitoes!

Work-- Work has been going great! I love customer service, well most of the time anyways! I celebrated a year of working at Wal-Mart on the 27th. Crazy to think it's been that long!

Home Life-- With celebrating a year at work, I also celebrated a year of living at home. I don't regret my choice at all. Lynn & Mady are still two of my best friends. Mady & I have stayed up til 1 or 2 a.m watching Army Wives the last two nights. My baby Cooper is growing like a weed. His paws are ginormous & his ears are HUGE! I love him! Over the course of the year, I've wondered a few times what it would be like to live by myself or in dorms, but I quickly realize I would be missing SO much time with my family.

School-- Today is the last day of summer semester. Can I get a hallelujah? Summer semester is WAYY stressful. I'm just glad that I have 18 days off & then have a full semester instead of an 8 week semester that stuffs 19 weeks full of material in.

18 July 2011

Customer Service Tales

I was going to write about how my relationship with my step-grandparents has progressed through the eleven or so years I have known them, but all the pictures I was gonna post with it are on Lynn's computer and I'm here at school, so I thought I would give you a few stories I've been a part of since starting up at the service desk almost a month ago.

(one)

Crazy DVD lady

Let me preface this with the fact that we cannot return DVDs,Video Games, CDs that have been opened, unless the customer wants to exchange it for the exact same item because of federal copyright laws.

So knowing that, I had a lady come through and wanted to return the movie Chihuahua, and get a different movie. I explained the copyright law to her, and told her I was sorry & she could have her movie back. So she's like it's still mine right? I said yes, she said okay, ripped the DVD case out of my hands, snaps the DVD out of the case and tries to break it, but is unable to, and then grabs the pen out of my hand, scribbles all over the back of the dvd, and tosses it over the counter into my garbage can.

(two)

Crazy Coupon Lady

This one was only a couple of days ago. It was Thursday. I had a lady come up with her little girl & she looked really pouty. I asked her what I could do for her, she wanted me to accept a $5 off entire purchase coupon, which is one of the ONLY coupons we don't accept. I told her we unfortunately did not accept those types of coupons, and if she wanted to talk to one of my supervisors over, so I called Dee over & she told her the same thing as I was going on my lunch, and she started crying over $5. I mean really?!?! that's a little absurd and obnoxious.

Most days I come home tell Mady & Lynn at least one of these types of stories, and then we all have a good laugh :D

Love my job!!

Good Day

Good morning!

I overslept this morning. Got ready in like 5 minutes. Didn't have time to shower, hence, I feel & probably look gross. But today is going t o be a good day. Yesterday really was!

I worked 7 to 3, first day at customer service by myself. & I was all alone from 7 to 11. It was HECTIC! I loved it though. I had some crazies, but I didn't get stressed out, just made me laugh at the end of the day!

Mady's home from her dad's. She got home at like 1:30a Tuesday morning. We had a full conversation that she doesn't remember. I think the funniest part was this part.

Mady: Meghan, I'm hot.
Me: Okay Mady.
Mady: Meghan it's hot in here.
Me: Ok Mady
Mady: Meghan, do you wanna watch a movie? I can't sleep!
Me: Mady its 1:45 IN THE MORNING.
Mady: Ok, Meghan do you wanna watch a movie?

It was like HELLOOO! I'm trying to sleep. But I luff her anyways :D

We rented four movies last night. Never Say Never(Yes, the Justin Bieber movie), Step Up 3, The Dilemma, & Social Network. I was leaving for Ryan's lacrosse game & thought it would be funny if I unplugged the TV where she was watching the movie. I don't think I've ever seen Mady get up that fast. She yelled Meghan! You're going in the pool. I said no I'm not!! She said YUP! Let's go. She dragged(drug?) me down the hallway outside, took my glasses off for me, lifted me up & threw me in the pool FULLY CLOTHED!! All of this 5 minutes before I was supposed to walk out the door to go to Ryan's lacrosse game lol. Ryan's team lost bad last night. It was against the number 1 team though. After the game, he went out to eat with my Aunt & Uncle. It was nice, I haven't seen them in a while.

I have a test in 15 minutes I really should study for!

<3 Meghan.

P.S. Blog challenge catch-up ASAP!!

Blog Design(:

You may have noticed something different when you clicked on my name to read this post, I got a MAKEOVER! I must say I love my new digs! Who was my designer you ask? Well the amazing Amber of course! I had used Brittany Ciara for my first two blog designs, and decided to try someone new, and I love what she did!

This weekend was great! I got to spend time with my grandparents this afternoon which was much needed. I worked two short shifts which was nice. Mady & I had our usual Saturday Movie Day. We watched The Other Guys, Baby Mama, and UP. My first time seeing UP and I LOVED it! Such a good-SQUIRREL-movie (:

Today was church at 9:30, and it was a good message. Our pastor issued a challenge to the church saying from now to Labor Day he challenged us to read the Bible each week 5 of the 7 days out of the week. I took the challenge. I'm hoping to succeed! We got home, Lynn & Ryan headed to Ryan's lacrosse games, and Mady & I started to watch What A Girl Wants...yes What a Girl Wants. lol. We got a call from my Grandma asking us over for lunch & to play cards. We played 19 and Arizona Spaghetti, I tied with Mads in 19 & was the big Loser in AZ spaghetti. We talked, laughed & I have some quotes to share from today.

Grandma to Jack(my cousin): Zip it or I'll tape it...talking bout his mouth.

Mady: Jack did you just fart?
Everybody then laughs until they cry and we have to redeal because we can't remember whose turn it was.

Mady: Jack is it your turn? Fart once for yes.

We then went home, & watched UP and then re-watched What a Girl Wants (:

Grandma, Grandpa & Jack picked me up for work, and we were talking about poems that Jack had to do for his English.'

Grandpa: I'm glad I never had to do poems for English.
Jack: I'm in enriched
Grandma: Rich, you didn't even pass basic english!

It was a fun day.

I worked a 4.5 hour shift, and then came home and watched Army Wives
*SPOILERS*
I really do NOT like the direction they are pushing Michael, & what's going on with Emmalin?

I'm so glad that Trevor & Roxy are okay though!

& as always on Mondays, I'm linking up with Meg's Mingle Monday! Go link up with her!

Ohh you make me smile (:

Today has been such a great day! It is my first actual day off in MONTHS! If I am off of work, I have school & vice versa. I'm on my three week break from school before going back for summer semester.

I'm home alone, because everybody else is out mowing. I do NOT mow. I am the laundry chick. I hate mowing. & I am not good at it.

It's finally starting to get nice out around here. Mady & I took a bike ride with cooper, and then laid out on our trampoline.

We came in & Mady made grilled cheese it was amazingg! Apparently we're having manwich tonight too. I LOVE MANWICH! lol. It's the simple things lol.

Last night at work, I was able to work customer service almost all night. I learned how to do claims & how to close customer service. It was a good night.

I went to my mom's house between work on saturday & work on Sunday. It was nice to go home. I got to see my aunt & grandma which was great. I miss my granny.

I think that's about it, but do me a favor, you all should go check out Meg & her Mingle Monday Blog Hop (: I would appreciate it mucho!

Wee Bit & Lovely Wednesday

I haven't been writing a lot, because I've had finals but those are done now, so I'll be reading & posting more hopefully! It's time of wee bit & what I'm loving wednesday!



-one- Finals are done for spring semester 2011!

-two- which means that I have a three week break before summer semester.

-three- I'm getting time up at the service desk at work.

-four- The next three Mondays & next two Wednesdays, I have nothing going on, no work and no school.

-five- My family.

-six- the way that my grandpa talks. They says, I says, The two of yas. I'm starting to talk like that, we were talking about the weather & I said it's supposed to be humider than today tomorrow, and my grandma looks at me & says you're starting to talk like grandpa. Whoops (:

-seven- the warmer weather!

-eight- Wee Bit Wednesday!


one} what profession have you always admired?
Police Officers & Nurses. My dad is a police officer & my mom is a nurse. There are many a day that my dad has come home & told us of an officer that has been shot or hurt in the line of duty. His job takes him away a lot, & we sacrifice as a family. I admire the families of police officers as well. I honestly don't know how my stepmom does it, I would be constantly worrying. I was raised to trust & value & respect authority. & Nurses. My mom & stepdad are both nurses. They work in a long term care center, & I can't imagine how they deal with the deaths of their residents on a daily basis. I look up to them as well!

{two} what would the title of your memoir/biography be if it was written today?
Hmm. Live.Laugh.Love. Because that's how I've lived my life so far, laughing & loving.
{three} how far do you commute to work?
7 miles...not too bad.
{four} are your earlobes attached or detached?
attached.

{five} do you eat the unpopped kernels of popcorn at the bottom of the bag?
sometimes.

{six} what is the strangest gift you’ve ever received?
I don't really think I've gotten any strange gifts. Unless you count the ones Coop likes to leave in the middle of the room sometimes(Cooper is my dog btw!)

{seven} what is one tv show that you wish hadn’t been cancelled?
Another hard one....7th Heaven maybe?

{eight} what is something that you are saving money for right now?
tuition...always the tuition.

{nine} what hobby would you like to take up?
calligraphy. I would love to be able to write like that!

{ten} how many times a year do you get really dressed up?
None. I can't remember the last time I truly dressed up..that's kind of sad!

Miscellany Mingle Monday (:

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters


Mingle 240


So this my first time doing miscellany monday...so I'm pretty pumped.

Miscellaneous Ramblings

-one- So I'm also doing Mingle Monday. The first blog hop/meme that I ever joined! I love it! I've met some great bloggers from this awesome Monday tradiiton! Go check it out if you haven't yet!!!

-two- My weekend was awesome. Friday I worked a short shift & then went home & stenoed for awhile. Saturday...watched The Blind Side...love that movie. Tim McGraw hello? YES PLEASE! Worked 2 to 11. I like that shift for whatever reason. My favorite CSM's work during that shift. Sunday, Sunday was probably the best day of the weekend. We went to The Crossing again. I love love love that church <3. Then I got home & headed over to my grandma's to help her throw my cousin's fiancee a bridal shower. It was SO much fun. I don't really get to see my grandma's side of the fam that much, I see my grandpa's all the time cause they are up at the cabin wiff us. Anywhosit, the groom-to-be? HOT! Like oh my goodness. His wifey-to-be is one lucky lady! Haha. I helped her out for most of the party & then Mady, Lynn & Ryan got back from Ryan's lacrosse game, they took over, so I could go home & have some "me" time before work. I gave my Grandma a hug & she's like thanks for helping...I appreciate it & you more than you will ever know, have a good night at work...cue the awww. I'm so glad her & my grandpa are home for the summer. I'm still waiting for my grandpa to take me to Daddy O's and/or DQ for the first time this spring. lol. I love my grandparents. Speaking of which, my Grandpa,Lynn,Dad & Ryan picked me up from work Saturday night, and somehow we got on the topic of alcohol sales & how we card anybody looking under 40 to sell. Lynn asked me so do you card just about anybody, and I say yes unless I can tell they are like 80. My grandpa says so would you card me....I say NOPE! *Foot meet mouth* My Grandpa is 66 and doesn't look a day over 55, & sure doesn't act his age . We all laughed about it the rest of the way home. Glad I could be a comic relief guys :D

-three- I am so glad that I only have two weeks left before a two week break from school!

-four- Speaking of school, we had an extra long break in my class today, and while we were waiting for my teacher to get back we laughed so hard. I love the girls in my class!

-five- I totally didn't study for the test I have in my next class...so glad this is the second to last class with this instructor. He has NO teaching skills at all!

-six- thanks for visiting!

Hey everyone (:

It's Mingle Monday around these parts!

How was your Easter?

Mine was FANTASTIC! I woke up yesterday, showered, kept my hair down(my grandma likes it down :D so my hair was free for the day. Went to the Crossing Church which is amazing. They advertise themselves as the church for the people who don't do church, but I DO do church, and I still love it! Anyways, after church, I helped Lynn aka Crip(I don't know if I mentioned here, but she broke her ankle a month and a half ago), make cheesy hashbrowns & a dessert called Angel Lush which was delcious! It has angel food cake, cool whip, pineapple, & strawberries. I have the recipe if anyone wants it. After that I had to work 1:30 to 7. Went to the grandparents house and had din din that my grandma made especially for me(the others had already eaten.) We played cards while Lynn & Dad brought Matt home(Matt is my biological brother & he lives with my mom.) I love spending time with my grandparents. They are so AWESOME (:

& today has been filled with school. Right now I'm on break til 5. I am listening to pandora & just relaxing. Hopefully technologies goes fast, because my cousin Spencer & Uncle Don are coming over afterwards :D :D :D

Hopefully going to post intros tomorrow (:

Have a good rest of your Monday!

Hey It's Ok.

So I stole this idea from one of my favorite bloggers Amber. She stole it from Glamour.

It's okay to be watching Laguna Beach for the first time in years, but it totally brings back memories of end of junior high/beginning of high school.

It's okay to think the Laguna girls are spoiled rich brats who think they are better than everyone else.

It's okay to not understand why Kristen & Lauren were attracted to Stephen, when he was so obviously playing BOTH of them.

It's okay to be totally & utterly addicted to Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

It's okay to wanna chuck my laptop out the window because it won't stay on unless it's charging.

It's okay to not understand why America is so obsessed with the Royal Wedding.

It's okay to totally be craving Daddy O's ice cream. I'm hoping that my Grandpa will bring me one of the days he brings me to work this week.

Hey There (:

Mingle 240


The last week has been awesome. Spending Tuesday through Thursday at Nessa's house was the mental break I needed. I am so blessed to have such a sweet friend.

On Thursday, Coryn, Nessa & I went out to eat at Broadway Pizza...NOM NOM! & then we went to go see Soul Surfer. It was an AMAZING movie. I cried. Dennis Quaid is very good looking shirtless for an old guy (: I haven't really seen Helen Hunt in anything since Twister except What Women Want, and I LOVED her in both of those movies & Soul Surfer wasn't any different. & Carrie Underwood rocked her role as Bethany's youth pastor. I worked Thursday night and it was a pretty laid back shift. I like laid back shifts lol.

Friday I worked 2 to 11. I've got full hours the next three weeks at work, which I LOVE! Lynn was looking at our family schedule specifically at mine, and she's like wow meghan. you don't have any days off. I said yeah, welcome to my world. I wouldn't change it though. Not for anything. I love my life & my family. My amazing friends too. I feel really blessed guys!

I'm totally obsessed with Karen Kingsbury's books. I'm reading my way through the baxter series, & then just read Leaving. I love her writing! I also loved her 9/11 series.

Yesterday before work, all 5 of us(Lynn,Dad,Mady,Ryan & I) plus Cooper were all laying in my parents bed(get your mind out of the gutters) watching The Blind Side. & I loved it. I didn't get to finish watching it though.

& Army Wives? I watched last night's episode when I got home from work. This is a crazy season! && we have to wait two weeks for the new episode. I need to get caught up on Grey's too. I'm still only half way through the musical episode.

My first class was cancelled this morning, so I don't have class til 2. YAYY!

Thanks to everyone who answered the questions from my last post! If you haven't and you would, I would be very appreciative!

I'm going to find something to eat!

Love to you all!

I know this is late!

Saturday: We dropped off Quinton at his mom and dad's(Lynn's cousin and her husband), and picked up John's mail(John is Lynn's uncle & Diana's husband,Diana is the one who died right before Christmas.) After that, it was time for the AIRPORTTT! Lynn was able to get a pass to come sit with me til my plane left since it was my first time flying by myself(third time overall.) My plane took off on time, had some turbulence over the Rockies(I like turbulence it makes it fun!), got to Phoenix around midnight. Didn't check any bags, so within 10 minutes of getting off the plane, I was getting a HUGE hug from my Grandma. Bliss. Absolute bliss. Got to Casa Grande about an hour later. They have the cutest little park model in a retirement community down there (:
Sunday: Saw John & some of our family friends Jo and Amos. We went to a Civil War reenactment at Pichaco Peak, which was really cool! Saw some people reenacting the lifestyle too. Got to see a lady weave(idk if that's the right word) cotton. I couldn't imagine wearing that stuff in the heat, and it was very warm (:

After the reenactment we headed back to PC(the retirement community), had ice cream & headed to the pool. The pool felts so good after being out in the heat. Then Grandpa & I laid out and we went to In-N-Out burger for supper. Yum Yum! We don't have those in Minnesota (:

Monday: Went to Photo Club with my Grandma. Hit the pool to catch some more rays. Read and layed out with Grandpa again. Went to Amos' and Jo's for supper. Learned a new card game called 19, which is really fun.

Tuesday was quite a busy day. Had shuffle in the morning with John,Amos,& my Grandpa. Went shopping with my Grandma to get new kicks. I got a pair of tennis shoes with sea foam green on them. LOOOOOVE them (: Went to the pool with my Grandpa for awhile. My really reallly really great aunt picked me up for some girl time while my Grandma and Grandpa had their Bible Study. We went to Chic-fil-A & went shopping @ Tilly's & Ross. I got this really cute cowgirl hat too. After shopping & chic-fil-a, we hit up Olive Garden for some Chocolate Cake for dessert. It had like 7 layers of chocolate. Rich & Delicious (:


Wednesday was AMAZINGGG! Wednesday morning I got to go up in a hot air balloon. Wednesday I got to ride on the back of an ATV while my Grandpa lead us through the Box Canyon & through the mountainside. It was beautiful! I think this was my favorite overall day (: Of course we hit up the pool after ATVing again, then it was TEXAS HOLD 'EM night! I beat out my Grandpa & Uncle John. Didn't make it to the money though.


Thursday went by WAY TOO FAST! My grandma had an appointment in Phoenix, so I went & played shuffleboard with John & Amos again. When my grandpa and grandma got back, we were gong to head to the pool, and we were leaving my Grandpa says we have to stop by Tom & Darlene's quick because I told them we would come by & chat. I thought it would be better than them coming here so we can leave wheneverr, my grandma says right back, the only thing better would be if I could put a muzzle on you. So nice that Grandma of mine After the pool, we showered up & went for Mexican which was delicious. Oh something I absolutely loved? We were in the middle of a crowded resteraunt, and we bowed our heads and prayed :D That's something I would never had the courage to do if my Grandpa hadn't done it. We went back & played more 19 where I finally won a game. Went to the airport after that. Waited a couple of hours and then I was on my way home.

Overall impression of AZ/Casa Grande: I ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT & CAN'T WAIT FOR NEXT YEARR! My grandpa had an inner&outer ear infection the whole time I was there, but he didn't complain at all. I absolutely love the little group they have they hang out with down there. I know they don't read this, but I would love to extend a huge thank you to my Grandma & Grandpa for having me, Donna & Bob for taking me out, Tom & Darlene for ATVing with us, Dean & Pat for ATVing with us & coming over to hang out with me & my g-rents while I was there, Amos & Jo for the great food, & John for playing Shuffle with me (: It wouldn't have been nearly as much fun without you guys!!

<3 to you all, and kudos if you got all the way through this!!

Weekend+puppy pics.

Monday Mingle today
Mingle 240

My weekend was good. Worked both Saturday & Sunday. Watched some hockey.

While at work, a 7 or 8 year old girl came up to me & said you look funny! I said thanks. She said you really look funny. I said you know what? I'd rather look like me & have manners then look like you and have none at all. The kicker is, her mom and grandma were standing right there, and they did not.say.a.word.

It's whatever though. I watched the Elk River Elks' Varsity Girls take 5th place in State. It's not first, but it's still something!!

Want some puppy pictures?

Of course you do!

How Things Change & How they stay the same.

I love the days that I don't work til 3 or 4 in the afternoon. I really love the days that I don't work til 3 or 4 and only have a four hour shift. That's the case today. I work 4:30 til 8:30. Right now, I have the house to myself. Lynn and Dad are working, Mads and Ryan are at school. I'm just sipping my daily(at least) glass of OJ, watching DAYS, creeping on people on facebook, reading some blogs, and reflecting how much has changed and the few things that have stayed the same over the past year or so. I was reading over my personal journal from this time last year, and I can say without a doubt, I'm 100% happier. Of course there are some days where I am down in the dumps, but who doesn't have a few of those days here and there. Last year, it was about 80% of my days were happy, and 20% were absolute crap. Today, it's 95% OH MY GOSH I LOVE MY LIFE & 5% UGHH, I'm ready for a change. I don't cry nearly as much as I did last year. Last year, it was I can't remember the last time I didn't cry at least once a day, this year it's I can't remember the last time I cried( for the record, it was two weeks and two days ago, the day Sam died.) Last year Trina and I were best friends, we've had two or three fights(the I'm never talking to you again, eff off kind), but we're friends again as of a couple days ago. I feel sad for her though, because right now, she isn't talking to her dad and stepmom, and anyone who knows trina knows that she was SUCH a daddy's girl. I hope she can get over whatever happened and get that relationship back.

Not sure I have much more to add right now.

Gonna finish watching DAYS, so I'm out (:
