I just thought my work week ended....

on January 11, 2009 - 7:34am

Well, normally my work week ends on friday, but with my mom and dad building a house that isn't always happening. This weekend I had to go down to my parents and answer questions about the floor plan that I did for them. You would think that the people who asked me to do everything on the floor plan would know, but appartently not. There are times when you wish that you hadn't said that you would do something for someone. I love my paretns but there are times when I'm going, "what the %$#@!" And I have to keep reminding them that it is their house, not mine, and they should do what they want. There are somethings that I've been saying, "here is what a lot of people do... but you don't have to do that if you don't want to." And on top of that, my husband and I are going to be, hopefully, starting our house next month. That is going to be interesting, very interesting!

SuperStars of Dance

on January 4, 2009 - 8:03pm

Just watched the first episode, and as usual I wish I could dance like that. I try but it doesn't even come close! If you get a chance to watch it, it will be on Mondays on NBC, not sure what time so check your area. If you're not in the states I'm sure that you can find it on the NBC website. It is worth it. Well it's getting late and I have to work tomorrow, but I had to tell you guys about the show.... IT SO ROCKED!!!! TTFN!!

In-Laws

on January 1, 2009 - 6:40pm

You know the saying "Guests are like fish, they both start to smell after 3 days." Well my Brother-In-Laws are on day 4 and will be here for one more. Needless to say, I'm going nuts!!! I have got 2 teenaged boys who can, and do, eat everything that they see! They both are slobs, just like their mom (nicest description of her house is a pig stie). If any one in my family had a house in the shape her's is all the time we would be mortified if people came over. My husband who never cleans up had a trash bag in his hand and was picking up trash off the floor of his mom's house the last time we were there. If it's bad enough that he is cleaning, IT'S BAD!

I do not understand how people can live that way. You can't even find a place to sit down. They go home tomorrow and then they will be busy enough that we wont see them until summer, and hopefully by then we will be moving, and we could use the "slave" labor.

Oh well, thats life and thats In-Laws for you.

Happy New Years!

on December 31, 2008 - 4:26pm

I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year! We had an interesting day at work for the last day of 2008. The entire phone system for Upshur County (where I work and live) went down this morning, even the 911 Emergency phones were down! Made for a nice quite day, got a lot of work done on a floor plans and paper work. LOL Got to work tomorrow also, but it is usually a VERY quite day, great for the end of year file shuffling.

Stay safe, and have a very Happy New Year everyone!
