If my dad heard me say, "I'm tired", I would hear one of the following:

1. Do you know me and your mama use to come home from parties at 4 in the morning and get back up at 6:00 in the morning for work?
2. You are too young to be tired!

I'm sorry but times have just completely changed. The things you use to do back then....no way possible you can do them today. Sorry, Chaw-lie!
So, as most of you know I started back to school this quarter and I got this promotion at work right? I am burnt out! How am I supposed to be focused enough on the weekends to scrap?! I mean this is just plaine ole ridiculous! I work 10 hour shifts each day, MW I am in class right after work till 8pm, then TR I am in class from 7-10pm, right after work... I think my priorites are a little jacked up though, because I could be looking in my text books rather than blogging and thinking about all the other fun things I could be doing, like completing my All About Me Book that needs to be done by this Saturday!! Hello!?

I am taking this music class...and I am just too through! I have never had any musical background, and we are expected to learn to read music, write it, and play it on a Soprano Recorder! Oh yeah...and teach a lesson plan! By the way, it is Music in the Classroom in case you were wondering...AND it is required! ARGHH!!!! I dread this class! And because we are on a 10 week quarter system it makes it more complicated because he teaches way to quick! Its not that I don't appreciate music, but learning to play it is compicated, especially if you are an adult with 100 million things on your mind! Now, give me some music and I can sure dnace to it! And I have rhythm and I can find the beat! But play it? Thats a different story!
Okay I am done venting....

1st Laker Playoff Game...

Went pretty sour. In my opinion the refs of course were NOT in our favor. True, we were behind majority of the time, but boy were they callin some real bad calls, and didn't make any right calls! Well they didn't do so well for the first game, hopefully we can take the next game. Lakers need to work on their ball control, way too many turnovers!

Other than the Laker Game, we invited some family and friends over for BBQ it was a good day. We had carne asada, chicken, hot links, greens, corn on the cop, macaroni salad and potato salad....I think I got everything. Oh! Baked beans! How can I forget the beans! Everything was yummy!

Went on a mini shopping spree today!

Yes! I had fun today, I went shopping! The only funny thing about it is I didn't buy not one scrap related item! Isn't that something? Lane Bryant was having a really nice sale 25% off everything, and I had one of those nice gift cheques, like if you spend $225, you get $75.00 off. taht was nice. Since I am kinda tall, they are the only place I can find just the right fit. they had some cute skirts and nice summer shirts. Then I hit up Mervyn's cause the cashier that was ringing me up had the nerve to tell me that they were having a store wide sale too! All their shoes were like 50% off and had some really cute sandals, but you can imagine what the shoe isle looked like! Like a toy isle on Christmas Eve! THEN...off to Target! Bought some more clothes and some things for around the house.

Now, you may be asking yourself, I hit up even Target and didn't buy no scrapbook stuff?! You gotta remember, I gotta look good when I scrap right!?? HA HA HAA!! No seriously, I always indulge in supplies, so I figured I get some clothes this time, for work and play.
I met my sister and nephew for lunch at Chilis which was all good...I am still full.
Overall I had a good day!

The weather was nice, opened up the sun/moon roof cruised to my music....I hated to get out of the car. Nothing like rollin in your car feeling the breeze while playng your music!

The mountains are becoming so green from all the rain, some of the mountains still have snow on them, it was about 84 defrees today, just lovely! Hearing birds chir, birds fly, kids playing outside...nice!

Please tell me WHY is it scheduled to rain again? They said tomorrow..but I didn't see any clouds in the sky. I guess we will see tomorrow morning!

Monday Blues...

Well, back to work today and still no computer! I work at a place where most the communication is done on the computer! Wow! what is a girl to do? Am I upset that I can't get any work done? Or more upset that I can't get on the internet to check my mail, go to my Yahoo Group, check my blog and other favorite blogs, or see who if any has left any comments on My PLace? LOL!! Well the latter is the truth! Well I officially started my new job today, and did some training. They do job shadowing for 3 months...whoa! Its a lot to learn, but it was confessed that we were being kinda thrown into the job! So wish me luck.
Also school started back today. ARGH! Do you know how difficult it is to pass your home to go to class and sit for 2 hours!!?? What a dread! Found out that one of my text books is running $100.00...and thats just one class, got one more tomorrow! I am blessed to work for a company that pays for your education! WOO HOO...maybe I will see if I can get reimbursed for my text books..I will give it a try.
Anyway, well late nights for me at least for this future quarter ahead of me.
Ciao for now!

Anthony Hamilton, Jill Scott, Musiq, Kem, geez thats just to name a few....
Well we shall see...
