Writer's Workshop Wednesday [Edition 1]

So I came across Writer's Workshop Wednesday @ Mama's Losin' It and thought I would participate this week.

1.) Who made you red hot this week?

I like that this is one of the prompts this week because I have been fuming all week over a certain manager at work.
Every time I work with this manager, they just make my life a living hell while at work. A bunch of other co-workers have gone to upper management about this particular person, but they say she does a good job.
Her latest shenanigans is refusing to send anyone to help me when I got swamped. I've gone to other management and they said if she refuses, then just call them and they'll get someone to help me. Well that didn't work out either. Management didn't help me either. Hopefully my meeting with upper management will change some minds next week.

2.) A day in your life...recap.
(inspired by Jennifer from Toddler Tirade)
My life is rather boring.
Thursday - Monday I work from 1pm-10pm where I deal with horrible customers.
Tuesday and Wednesdays on the other hand, I try and get into anything I possibly can!

3.) What decision are you having a hard time making?
(inspired by Evansmom from Just Sayin')
I'm having a hard time making a decision whether or not I want to move now, or wait and save some money.
I have an oppurtunity to move out of my MIL's house right now and move into my brother-in-law's place with his gf where we all get along, or we can wait until hubby actually starts working, then save money and move into our own place. We'll see...

4.) How will you enjoy your last days of freedom (aka summer)?
(inspired by Heather from A Day In The Life)
Living in Alaska, we like to soak up all the sun we can get!
So I will be spending the last days of summer trying to enjoy the little bit of sun that we will be getting. It's been raining like crazy so we don't have much.

5.)List your 7 most favorite summer items!
(inspired by Summer from Le Musings of Moi)

1. Watermelon
2. Over-sized sunglasses
3. The sun! (We only get 3-4 hours of daylight in the winter)
4. Flip-flops
5. BBQ's
6. Sunflowers
7. Green grass

Just waking up

Well I finally woke up from a Vicoden-induced slumber after getting my wisdom tooth out yesterday and the pain sucks!
I'm so hungry, but can't open my jaw wide enough to eat anything. It's still pretty swollen. I'm hoping it goes down more by the time I go to work on Friday. Bleh!

Quick update after seeing dentist

Last night I was wanting to die because of the pain in my jaw and the back of my mouth. I was looking around for a dentist that I could see that I could actually afford, and found a clinic.
So I called the clinic around 9am and the lady told me if I came in right away, they could see me before lunch.
So the Hubs takes me and we get there. Well lunch time came and they told us to leave and come back at 1pm. Are you kidding me?? I was literally crying because it hurt so bad.
So, Hubs and I leave and he goes to Wendy's for lunch (butthole) and ate a tasty burger in front of me, then we headed back to the clinic.
I FINALLY got seen after 1:30pm.
Doc takes a look at my mouth, took a X-ray, and told me I have a major infection in my right lower wisdom tooth. Guess what the means?????? Yay! (Please note I'm speaking VERY sarcastically)
I get to take antibiotics through the weekend and get the sucker pulled on Tuesday. So not looking forward to that.
Well I'm going back into a Vicodin-induced sleep.
Nighty night Blogarinos!

Seriously?!?!

So I come into work today and I see we are ZERO days accident free...


Yesterday we were 239 days accident free. 1 more day and we would have gotten our day off with pay.


Now...NOTHING!


Now I need to nosey around and find out what happened.


P.S. Only 110 more days until grand opening of our super center!

Are you kidding me??

It's around 4:15am and I can't sleep because the sun is out and it's FREAKING HOT!

For some reason, humidity has sky rocketed and that's almost unheard of in Alaska. This is actually an awesome summer compared to last year when all it did was rain with temps in the 60's.

Well I'm going to try and get some sleep because I have to work tomorrow....bleh

Nick @ Nite gets better!



I love watching Nick @ Nite when I get off work. All those familiar shows I used to watch while growing up are now back and I can actually catch up on old episodes that I missed in the past.








Now it gets even better.



Either you hate this show, or you love it. I think the mom is hilarious!

What shows do you enjoy sitting down and watching?

Now, I'm off to watch an episode before I go to bed.

Night night blogarinos!

I need help!

So does anyone know of anything I can put on my face?

It's burnt really bad and has blisters on it and I just wanna cut my head off to make the pain go away!!

I've tried aloe, but it only lasts for about 10 minutes before I have to re-apply. I've even put Neosporin on it and it works for a bit, but makes my face so oily and it feels like it's suffocating. I haven't been sunburned in about 15 years, so I have no clue what to use.

Any suggestions are welcome.

Took a pain killer to knock my ass out since I have work in a few hours...
Night fellow blogarinos.

Uploaded pics of Homer, Alaska

Ok. So I finally got the pics uploaded.
You can check them out here.
If you can't see the link, just post me a comment because I uploaded them to Myspace and they have a new feature where you can share your private albums with Non-Myspace
users if you give them a special link.
Well there's the special link, so check them out, comment, whatever.

Hope you enjoy!
I had a blast!

We started in Anchorage, and drove south to Homer where there is a small road that extends into the ocean (See second picture)



You can see the little road in this picture where we stayed at the very end of the road. It was beautiful!!


There's a few pics in there of me with a REALLY red face. I ended up blistering really bad, but I had a lot of fun. I'm now trying to heal my face and make the blisters disappear.

Hope everyone had a great 4th of July!!

Procrastinater

So I'm sitting here wanting to work on my Myspace, Facebook, and here on Blogger about my trip to Homer, Alaska, but I feel so lazy right now and wanting to procrastinate.

*Sigh*

I wish everyone in my family would leave me alone about it!

I think I'm going to pee, stretch, then upload. LoL.

Pondering

A customer comes through my line and purchases little baggies and has white stuff coming out of her nose...


Cocaine much?


Another customer comes through my line with her boyfriend and maybe 12 year old daughter and buys the new KY jelly Intense. They begin to complain about the price of it, then debate whether they think the orgasm is worth the money. Meanwhile the 12 year old is mortified. Some people have no class...
