Politics in the workplace is always a NO NO

NO, I didn't bring it up, but yeah, so not going there again. I got one heck of an earful about it.

One advantage of working for a coffee place: all the coffee I can drink, and on mornings like this where I just want to go back home and curl back up into my nice warm bed, I need it LOL.

I start school again next week, this time taking on 4 classes at once, so this will be a challenge, but one I am up for. I really just want to get my classes done and out of the way so I can move on to what I really want to do in life. I like my job don't get me wrong, but this is not what I want to do for the rest of my life.

Moments of frustration

I love my job, I really do. But I do have a stretch point for sheer stupidity still, and right now, we are there. There are so many little silly things, i.e. most of my customers pay a different price for the same thing depending, and mind you only one price is listed in Quickbooks so I have know that particular person gets such and such price and change it manually. It's annoying to say the least.

So I am talking to my best friend last night, catching up on the gossip and what not, when she mentions that my name, and my blog are being used as a bad example, using inaccurate information to do so. I'm gone people, let it go already! Or did you hate me that much? Just stupid is my opinion.

In other news, I just weathered a pregnancy scare. My body apparently likes to play tricks with me, and led to a couple of days of VERY nervous nail biting. I do want to get pregnant, eventually, but NOT NOW. eeeeeeeeek. Too early. I start school again the beginning of February and this quarter I have a full load; math, spanish, history, and science on the agenda. I need to finish school first. DH was rather sweet about it, once I finally fessed up to why I had been so very cranky and unable to sleep. His concern? The cats and what would we have to do with them LOL. His way of thinking: not stress til we know for sure; my way of thinking: Worry about how this changes a number of things, too soon, worry about how I'm going to tell Mum ("I swear it was an accident!" LOL), so on and so forth. At one point we were discussing, and I made the remark "well it's your fault" and he responded with "I sure as hell hope it's my fault" ROFL. It lightened the moment, but now I am relaxed and not so worried. Oh and before you ask, yes I take pills daily!

On the Purple Heart Stamp

I got this today:
Dear Mrs. Mesa:

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for signing the Purple Heart Stamp petition on my Senate website. I am pleased to announce a major victory for supporters of the Purple Heart Stamp with the news that the United States Postal Service will continue to print the stamp despite the recent rate change. The Postal Service made the announcement last Friday.

With the recent increase in postal rates, supporters of the Purple Heart Stamp, including members of Military Order of the Purple Heart, were concerned that the Postal Service might discontinue the stamp which honors the heroes who have received the Purple Heart Medal. In response to those concerns, I launched a petition on my website to urge the Postmaster General to continue issuing the Purple Heart Stamp honoring the heroes who have received this medal. On December 19th, I also wrote to Postmaster General John Potter, delivering a list of hundreds of names of individuals who signed my petition.

This is wonderful news for all recipients of the Purple Heart as well as the supporters of this important and historic stamp. There was clearly a tremendous amount of public support for keeping this stamp in circulation, so I am delighted that it will continue to be issued by the Postal Service. This stamp honors those men and women in uniform who have made tremendous sacrifices in the defense of our nation. I am so pleased that we will continue to see it printed in their honor.
Sincerely yours,
Hillary Rodham Clinton

Stranger things have happened in this small world

Saturday night we went out to a bar for one of his friend's birthday parties. In the conversation, Iraq came up and we started to compare notes. It didn't take long before one of the girls and I were open mouthed having realized that we were in AG at the same time, and lived not more than 100 feet of each other, but neither one of us could quite place the other. It was just amazing! We even discovered that we had tattoos done by the same person ROFL!!
Life is funny that way!

Not a fan

I never really have been too much a fan of Hillary Clinton, for some reason she just didn't sit right with me. BUUUUUT, that having been said; THIS is a good thing. So go sign people, it is for the betterment of all (I think that is a word ROFL)

Insanity Thy Name is boredom

One of the requirements of my job is to screen callers for the boss men. Obviously they don't wish to be interrupted by telemarketers. So guess who gets to listen to the spiel:-D Sometimes I want to tear my hair out, other times I want to die laughing at the sheer desperation. Ah such is life. But this is what happens when I have slow times, I will inevitably get one of those calls.

Looney Tunes

This was rather amusing.

Finally I understand

Daniel and I are sitting here watching the 5th season of 24. I of course had heard much of this show, it was a favorite while camped out in Iraq of the majority of my company, but I just never had any interest in it. I preferred Stargate LOL. Anyhoo, it is just intense!!!!!!!!! Now have to go and rent the first four seasons!

Quizzes

So I have learned that most people think that I met my husband in Miami (understandable), and that my all time favorite show is CSI (it's MASH) :-D Oh yeah, and that my eyes are blue. Nope, unlike most blondes, I have brown eyes. It's been entertaining:-D
This weekend thus far has been decent, Daniel and I headed to a local gun show where I saw plenty of cool guns. Right now my next aquisition is planned to be a Ruger Mark 22LR, for plinking and possibly competition shooting later on. Fun Fun Fun. On our way home we stopped at the coolest little Catina on the east side and then took a trip through the Saguaro National Monument park. When I was younger, I remember taking many a trip out there for picnics and field trips, and I love it. I just love this city. I can't wait until we have all of our belongings here, because then we will have our tent and we can go camping:-D

Counters

I have gotten less and less obsessed with checking my blogpatrol counter in recent months (other things to do), but I logged on today and noticed that in the last year and a half of existance I have now had almost 105,000 visitors. So to all of you, I say thanks, and glad to know you are interested:)

And just because I am bored today, I created a Tickle quiz just to see how well you all know little old moi:-D

1. Have I ever gotten a speeding ticket? * Yes * No. I'm a law-abiding citizen

If you are up for the challenge, be my guest and let me laugh:-D

Busy days

It has been a busy past few weeks for us here in Sunny land. Christmas we spent in Texas, New Years again in Texas, though this time we just drove to El Paso, and of course my settling into my new job has occupied much of my time as I was training to replace someone who was retiring. I enjoy my job greatly, as it puts me right back where I like it, smack dab in the middle of things with non stop activity:) Oh so much fun.
This last weekend we decided on a whim to go roam the city and look at houses. Now that is an adventure. We did find a couple of places that tickled our fancy, but for now we are still just floating the ideas around.

New Years Resolutions

To enjoy life to the fullest
To smile no matter what
To roll the windows down, turn the radio up, and let the wind blow through my hair.
To know when to stand up, and not be walked over
To be supportive
To enjoy every last minute of every last day
