november 30th!

WHAt happened to november? seriously? Seems like i was just writing a blog and it was november 3. yeah I have been slacking off big time with blogging. so heres what have been happening!

I was able to get a lovely wonderful cold thanks for awesome customers! Seriously I hate you all! I have been sick since friday. It sort of started tuesday with a sore throat, wed i felt crappy, thursday sore throat but didn't really put to and to together, and friday felt blah, saturday little stuffy --took medicine (bad idea) made it worst.., sunday stuffy (took medicine) monday I was seriously worst, tuesday I slept most of the day until like 3 when i finally put the tree up, wednesday (today) im still sick, i guess i sound better but more nose still isn't. I just want it to go away SOON!!!

Well the holidays are in full swing here at the house! I moved some couches and a table to make sure the lovely christmas tree has a home for the next 2 months. :) So I finally put up the big tree and brought out the small tree. I haven't decorated the big tree yet, I need help with lights. I guess last year, I threw a fit with paul.. so im waiting. But i did decorate the mini tree. I added some lights this year, and went with a starbucks theme tree this year. Last year i did mini colored bolbs. it looks very cute! (I might need a few more starbucks ornaments ;) )  this weekend the bigger tree will be decorarted! Pictures will be posted ! I even am ahead of the game with holiday cards! I am/have been collecting addresses, got the cards, and made a letter of what has been happening (still needs to be printed) and printing pictures for those who dont have facebook. so im going to try and send it out in the next few days! :)

Shopping! yeah thats right, im half way done shopping :) it's the greatest feeling to know your almost finished shopping and its not even december yet! :) No i wasn't the crazy person to go shopping on black friday. but i actually go later that day out in silverdale so it wasn't busy at all! I did manage to buy something for me.. sparkle shoes, only 15$ :)

Thanksgiving: This year was my first year I had thanksgiving off. I usually work all holidays but i really want to do a run. so thanksgiving day i ran the 10k in gh. :) the weather was cold!! I had my running carpis, jacket, and a vest. I was cold until like half way. it was harder because my chest wasn't 100% normal, i was fighting a cold. But it was a great race! I finished with paul at 57min! :) so thats like a 9:20 min pace. not bad!! :)
Im hoping to do a race in december and jan and feb to have a race each month.. ive done one in sept, oct and november. :)
the rest of Thanksgiving was relaxing until dinner with the family. :)

Happy late birthday to my two friends (Nov 28)- Megan, and Jerry. I am so glad you both are my friends and i get to celebrate with you! :)

Well my dad moved away. :( I knew this was coming for a while basically since during the summer. but then he and his girl friend broke up and he was going to just stay here. Well they got back to gether, and then he went down to visit, and he thought of moving down there again. so he wanted me to go help him move but he didn't give me enough time to actually go with him. so this was the first holiday without him here. yes I  miss my dad, but i guess people need to move to do what they need/want to do. i guess he wanted to try the relationship out again, and stay warm. Yes he moved to AZ., that lucky man! SO im hoping the first few days after the new years IM FLYING out of WASHINGTON and going to some SUNSHINE! it would be a perfect time to go considering, Christmas at the bux will be over and it will be cold here anyways. SO JaN will be something i will be looking forward to!

So as many of you know/dont know. Im trying to become a shift supervisior at the bux. There was some talk about me leaving, leaving to proctor, at the begin of the new year, well then it needed to happen sooner.  But i reallt just wanted to finish out 2011 with my store and such. so I had to decline the offer :( I really didn't want to, but it was less hours, so i wouldn't noticed a pay increase. my dream job would be transfer to GH and work out here. I love my work schedule right now but i know when i become a shift that will sadly change. :(
so thats where Im at with that. I am doing more things in my store like being the lucky one to do a FULL on INVENTORY count.. ( seriously sucks) and leading promos and such. so if it happens it happens.

Well I think i recapped everything that has been happening over the last month.

Good luck to Tiffany,Will, Tiana, Cynthia at running in vegas, I wish i was going too! :)

November already?

Hello my friends.
hope all is well. Here's a recap of the last few weeks since apparently i haven't wrote on this since oct 11. Yikes!
well Lets see what i can remember from that long ago.

Well last week i had to deal with a lovely circuit breaker making noise. Paul was gone for a few days and of course this started about the day he left. he went on a work retreat. I had to preclose that day. I noticed a humming coming from somewhere, but i honestly thought it was the neighbors left a fan on or something. but as soon as I got home from work, it was still humming (i got home like at 9pm). i went to bed by like 11 because well i wasn't sleepy until then anyway. The humming got louder, and It kept waking me up. At one point it was making a beeping noise. I thought to myself oh crap you got to be kidding me. what if this catches on fire? why does this happen to me when no one else is around. of course paul can't fix/look at it or call the landlord when i tell him to call. so i got up and went to the couch to finish sleeping. by this time it was 630am. I should have just got up and went to the gym. but i was tired and went back to sleep. Then around 9, i went to check on it and yup still humming loudly. UGH. so i got ready, and then i decided to check what one was making the noise by turning off all of them. turns out it was the circuit that controls my room, the living room, and half the kitchen. so i didn't want to deal with it all day, i turned it off and went to my mom's to watch tv and such. about 6 hours went by and i got back home, and turned it back on. it stopped humming. but i was still concerned with the noise of it. and i asked paul to call, and of course he didn't. and yup the humming started a week later. i think this will be an ever ending problem. UGH!

I was able to run a halloween run. i was very excited. this run was at the 5 mile drive and it was at dark! I had my outfit all ready and i was running with paul. i was dressed up as a lady bug. the outfit worked out really well. it was calling for rain. but i was ready. it didn't rain untul the end of the race while we were walking back to the car. so this race was awesome. it started at 7:10 was suppose to start at 7. oh well it was late. it was foggy at the fort nesquillie area and windy. it made it spooky which was awesome. my pace wasn't that great considering the night before i had gotten hit in the rib cage from soccer and it was giving me a side ache which was sucking. i picked up my pace near the end and finished the race in 47min! :0 not bad for having a sore rib cage.

I wore my outfit to work on monday and it was fun just to dress up with the only 3 other people who wore outfits! we had a superman, a cat, and a lady gaga. and me of course. it wa a fun day at work.

halloween night.
i had made tacos for dinner and invited sara and alex over. we ate some tacos and headed out to the bar. we were the only ones who were dressed up that night at the bar. yes everyone had their halloween things over teh weekend but still people should be dressing up! so we had a few drinks and went back to my place to play wii dance. that was a fun night.

well i was going to post some pictures but my computer is acting really slow right now. even while typing this is't lagging what im tryping. so have a good day!Q
