Just Some Stuff

Hello all! I figured this is the ideal time to blog, I am stuck between two males on a couch. They are tunneling on "THE GAME". I love how with men its always "did you catch THE GAME?" No need to specify. They are all on the same wavelength and no matter how many games are on, they all know which one is "THE GAME".

This week Mike's family has been in town. Its been fun having them here. March Madness is what they get together for every year and they fill out brackets and its like a huge thing. We went to two games Thursday and we are going to one on Saturday. Its a little weird having a game we always need to be watching, but if everyone else is having fun, I'm having fun. I'm still trying to adjust to the sports mentality that Mike has. Even though we've been married for 7 months and he doesn't watch too many games, its still an adjustment. One thing I hate though.. there is never ever a break from sports. Ever. Baseball, football, basketball. Start over. Just as long as I don't get ignored I'm okay..

For some reason this week has been hard for me and I'm not sure why. I've just been really emotional. I'm always an emotional person, but this week I've been crying a lot and my feelings get hurt super easy and its just weird. I think I'm doing okay now though.

I think I am going to start looking for a job again. I don't like my job at all. I especially hate when my TL listens to my calls and tells me I "need to promote the Brand" and whatever and I just think in the back of my head "why would I ever do that?". Super unorganized at my job and I just don't enjoy it at all. So if anyone hears of any jobs out in the West Valley area that I would be able to do and pays $11.50/hr or more, let me know.

Today was a good day. I got off work early, and we all went to AppleBee's! After that, Mike his 2 older brothers, his parents and I all went and did sealings and the Oquirrh (or however it is spelled) Temple. It was the first time I have done that, besides our wedding. It was really nice.
We came back and started cleaning the house! Thank you Brenda, Steve and Brandon for helping!! After that, Fred, Janet, Jade and Jasi came over. We ate pizza, played Apples to Apples and Cranium. It was so fun!! Funny story.

We were split up into teams and one person on the team had to act like someone. The person was Gandhi. So Jasi and Jade were on a team with Brandon. Jade was acting it out and she said "I'm bald and I'm never going to eat again" and Brandon guessed Britney Spears. LOL! I thought I was going to die laughing.

Mike starts training for his new job on MONDAY! He is so excited! He will do great!! Way to go Mike!!

Today we got a KitchenAid blender.. YEEEAH! Mike made Orange Julius's.. they were delish. That is his specialty.

I think that is about all for now. Love you all!


Basketball, Dog, Birth Control, Funny Stuff

First of all.. my husband is having a three week affair with another woman named March Madness. I can't wait till I have him back.

Haha! Its not that bad. As you all probably know March Madness has started. And as all of you probably don't know I have hard feelings toward March Madness from last year. What happened you may ask? Let me tell you. Pretty sure KoriAnn remembers. I think I texted her a lot during that episode. (And no Mike, I will never let this go. Never) Last year Mike took a trip to Oregon for March Madness from like a Wednesday to a Sunday or something like that. We were dating pretty seriously at the time. So Mike went to Oregon to watch some games and be with his family. Fine. What did he not do his whole trip? He did not call his girlfriend. FOR A WEEK he did not call me. Why? March Madness. I now have hard feelings toward March Madness, and always will.

As a side note, I am excited to see how I do on my brackets. I filled out 6.

Tweeg's big thing for a few weeks now is waking up between the hours of 1 AM and 4 AM. I hate it. I keep wondering why did I get that dog. Mike is a big sweetheart, he gets up and lets Tweeg out. Tweeg used to be just fine and everything before, no peeing in his cage or anything, but now he thinks its fun to bark in the middle of the night. Dumb dog. Mike won't let me get a shock collar or Tweeg would have one by now.

Currently for birth control I'm on the Nuvaring, and am thinking about switching to the shot. Does anyone have any insight on this? It probably would be more cost effective, but I'm just afraid with the switch that I would get prego or something.

Funny stuff. Today I had a guy call in and while I was talking to him about opening an account he asked if he could speak to someone else. So I transferred him to someone else. Apparently I am incompetent.

I was talking to Syd today and we were talking about the different stuff we used to tease Aimee about. (Sorry Aimee!) Anyway- a few things that I find funny. One time we were cleaning the kitchen and said Aimee had a dirty blond hair color. Aimee insisted it was "gold" so the rest of the night Syd and I would try to get a hair or two and said we wanted to take it to the bank so we could get rich.
Another time when we went to the Windrivers we went fishing and Aimee caught a fish and wanted to name it Bob. Well, I thought that was lame, so I renamed the fish Lame Name. We teased her the rest of the day about her fish named Lame Name, Aimee is still a little sour about that one I think. We were a little mean. Sorry Aimee!

My sisters are great. I love them both a lot- we have good times!
PS HAPPY BIRTHDAY AIMEE! She is now 18. Wow!

Mike has a new position at work! He starts next week. He will still be on the phone but he will be working with prepaid cards I think instead of credit cards. Go Mike! He is really excited to switch departments and have more opportunities to advance.

I don't think I really have anything to blog about, I just figured it was time for an updated blog post.

I am hungry. Mike wanted to make curry tonight, but I told him no because last time I tried curry at a Thai restaurant it tasted like the smell of fireworks.

Funny comments from Mike while laying in bed last night.
I said something that spurred this conversation on and the rest goes as follows:
Mike: I have the heart of a dove.
Me: (giggles) A dove? What its super small or what?
Mike: No, I strive constantly for peace.
Me: Oh yeah?
Mike: Yes. And to occasionally be covered in chocolate.

LOL! He makes me laugh so hard.

That is all for now. Wish me luck surviving March Madness.
