I never thought I'd love a chip...

Just tried Burt's British Potato Chips with Thai Sweet Chilli. They are absolutely fantastic!

I'm glad I am who I am

You know, I had a really terrible morning. I was called a terrorist... A liar... It was bad. But with my attitude, I was able to cry a little and then pull my bootstraps up and now I got my smile back. It took awhile, but I'm better. Thank goodness I'm me!

Love me some crafting... Sometimes

So, went to Oly 2nd's Super Saturday this weekend & it was a lot of fun. Sure, I hadn't signed up ahead of time so I couldn't do a lot, but I did missing people's projects & "snatched" a baby so the mommy could do one of her crafts. I thought it was cute that it depended on who I was talking to on who's sister I am: Sidse's or Kevin's.

But just as I was leaving, I took pictures of my favorites. I'm trying to narrow down my treasures, but some of them were just TOO CUTE!!! I'm probably going to make some for Christmas... Actually, I already have but I'm not going to post pics until AFTER Christmas so I don't spoil the surprise!

I didn't take this job to be a snitch!

When I took this promotion, I knew it would be more responsibility and tough claims. Like today... Got three icky ones. But what I didn't sign up for was the BS of ultimately spying on my coworkers! My sup insists I can't listen to anything on my headphones so she can make sure I hear how this one coworker is talking on the phone, talking to others, working in general. Seriously??? I'll do it for a little while, but if she's that concerned, she should move the troubled employee to the big beautiful cube right across from her! This is ridiculous!!! I'm becoming unhappy...

Job woes

So Mom & I have been working quite a bit of overtime... Which is kinda good money, but I'm SO TIRED!!! When does the money no longer seem worth it?

I'd also really love to find a job I could be passionate about! But I've allowed myself to get frozen with the uncertainty of it all. I've talked about wanting to be a published writer, but I haven't written anything in months and months! I'm going to have to get myself under control.

Blah, blah, blah... I'm really whiny today, aren't I?

So much fun!!!

So I'd been hearing about the Xbox game "Minecraft" for awhile from Allison & Brian. I played a trial and it actually is a lot of fun. So I spent my $20 & dove in!

The first day was pretty sketchy. I couldn't figure out how to make my house fast enough so I wouldn't get slaughtered by the creepers, zombies, skeletons & spiders. AND I had it on EASY!!!

So I made on new world on peaceful...not knowing I could just go out & restart on peaceful... And totally nailed it! I decided to mine into the base of a mountain and hallow it out first. It really feeds my OCD qualities.

Then last night I got a text from Brian and we tried to get on together. A real pain in the toukas! But after looking at the xbox live forum, I rebooted my modem, router, & xbox. And then it worked... Sort of! Brian was able to join my game & he could hear me perfectly. I, on the other hand, could only hear Brian sporadically and then like he was going through a tunnel.

Poor Brian. Because I knew he was there, I kept talking & talking. He'd interject occasionally, but it was like I couldn't stop. But we had a lot of fun making bedrooms for him, me & Crystal and then digging & digging. LOL! Can't wait to do it again!

Am I evil?

So I've been really bad with my blog... But make small comments on Twitter. (No followers, but it's weirdly fun. Especially considering my propensity for big words and being verbose!) Anywho, I know most of the family aren't reading these anymore, but just in case... ;)

Life here is weird & sometimes stressful. But I'm trying to engage my zen attitude. Most of the time I do pretty well. I guess we'll see how it goes with the huge amount of overtime I'll be working as well as starting my training classes. Keep posted!
