How 'bout a lil hump day treat...

I know, two days in a row!  You are not seeing things, I have actually posted two days in a row.

Here's why I have the time to do this...

So, you all know how much I love my job and desperately need a new one...
See, I only work part time, and with my tiny little furbaby mouth to feed, that simply does not cut the mustard finacially.  For a while there, we were super busy at the gym and I was getting lots of extra hours, pretty much full time hours.  Well, that has recently changed, again.  But not because we are not busy, but because one of our members (who is a teacher and off during the summer) was bored and wanted something to do.  Well, wouldn't you know it, they took the extra hours they had given me and passed them on over to her.  Nice of them, huh?  I have worked here over two years.  When I started, we were under different management and I was hired as a full time employee, with much more grown up (degree appropriate) job duties.  New management came, along with budget cuts and hour cuts for this girl.  So it is common knowledge around here that I want and need more hours and I jump on them any time they are available. 

So needless to say, this little passing on of the extra hours to someone with a full time, salary career, who is just bored has more than pissed me off.  To put the icing on the cake, she gets the daytime hours that I have always wanted and asked for (I work late afternoon-evening) and most days when I come in to work, she has already done most of the tasks that are my responsibility.  Me = not a happy camper. 

Problem = when I am mad or irritated, the world knows it.  I don't hide my moods very well, and I have this great little trait where my mind thinks up smartass remarks really quickly and my mouth speaks them even faster.  So, usually to protect the innocent, not so innocent, and most importantly my job, I remain silent and ignore everyone. 

Well, that was the really long explaination to why I am writing two post in two days.  This is day two of coming to work and finding that I have pretty much nothing to do, because it has already been done.  I'm sure as hell not going home, because I don't get paid if I'm not here, so I will just take this opportunity to do my own thing and get some stuff done (i.e. blog post).  Bright side! :)

So let me catch you up on my life recently....

update on Mr. L....
So Miranda sat me down a little over a week ago and had a big 'come to Jesus' with me and told me I was forbidden to talk to him anymore!  Okay, okay, that may be just a little bit of an exaggeration.  But she did really help me put a lot in to perspective.  This little "friendship" would only end badly and most likely badly for me.   See, he's fun to hang out with now but here in a couple months he will be very busy with, uhhh, let's just call it his "extracurricular activities of the university sponsored nature"....And remember, he is only 19 and I am of the age where I need to be thinking a little more seriously about my future (Boo!  Where is the fun in that??).   So anyway, I did as I was told and I am gradually wheening myself off that "friendship."  I would like to keep in contact with him enough to maintain a friendship tho (and I think my friends and family would probably prefer I did too, in case any benefits came from said friendship, haha), because he was fun to hang out with.  But oh well, we will see what happens.

Last night for dinner I had three glasses of wine and a good portion of a bag of Jalepeno Cheddar Cheetos.  I need an intervention.

I have decided that I need to find more friends who will drink with me.  For a couple of reasons.  I need more people that will come over and have a glass of vino with me at night so I can try to follow that dumb, don't drink by yourself rule, that I break almost every day.  Plus I need another single girl in our friend mix.  Being single is fun, but having no one to be single and fun with you, is not so fun.  And last but not least, my birthday is coming up in a couple weeks and I would really like to have a big night out with a big group of friends.  Problem, our group of friends is not so big.  So if anyone out there reading this is in the Lex-vegas area and would like to come drink vino with me, or be fun-single with me....hit a sister up!


I am SUPER excited that this guy won The Voice!!  He was my favorite from day one.  His voice is amazing!  And he's not too bad on the eyes either. When he sang "Fix You" by Coldplay....amazeballs.  Then he and Adam Levine (another one of my all time favs) sang MJ "Man in the Mirror."  Everytime he sang I didn't think it was possible for him to get any better, but yet he did.

So, I leave you with this little hump day treat.  YOU.  ARE.  WELCOME!
