Winter Fun and the Biggest Loser!

As most of you know I work swing shift. Stupid me didn't wear a coat last night. I went out to my car and wouldn't you know the door was frozen shut. In fact all 4 of the doors were frozen shut! I pryed open the drivers door and then guess what? The stupid door would not shut. I have never in my life had this happen to me. So, I didn't know what to do. So, I walked back into work to ask my friend Pattie and Nichole what to do. Since Nichole is such a dear she came out and tried to help me fix it. It still didn't work. So, I drove 5 miles home holding my door closed having my heater on full blast. I got home and what would you know? The door would shut! I was a little ticked. Driving home with one hand was tricky especially when the streets were iced over! I can't wait for spring!

At work there are a bunch of people doing the biggest loser. And guess what? I am doing it! Everyone puts in 20 bucks and who ever loses the most wins the pot of cash, so guess what? I am going to win this competition! Okay, so I know that makes me sound like I am full of myself but I want to win! We have a health "unit" at work so the nurse will weigh us and in 3 months we will see who has lost the most weight! WOOHOO! This should be fun. My manager and I have been talking crap to one another. I told her she better watch it or she'll have chocolate put on her desk by anonymous people :). HAHA!

I just witnessed HISTORY!

"I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal."

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character. " - Martin Luther King Jr.

I am so happy that President Bush is out of office. I don't want any backlash for this as I did vote for him in 2004. But he has disappointed me SO BAD in the past 4 years. That I voted for President Obama. I am sick of this stupid war. It has gone on way too long. What has it accomplished?! We executed Saddam Hussein which was a good thing but Bin Laden is still out there, and now our country is in an economic crisis. But, I could rant and rave about this until I am blue in my face, but I am not going to.

I BELIEVE that President Obama will do what he says he will do. Ever since the age of 18 when I could legally vote. I have never had so much faith in a president as I do now. I want this economy to get better. A friend of mine's husband is laid off. He makes around $60,000 plus a year and has been laid off for almost a month. She works part time and has the possibility of getting laid off at her job. The doctor she works for got laid off, so why keep her around?! They've not paid their mortgage in over a month. And can barely afford to keep food in their mouth and their daughter's mouth. I think that it's crap that this economy is forcing people who were doing well financially to go into financial turmoil. I hope and pray that it gets better.

Those 2 quotes at the top of my page are forever instilled in the hearts of Americans. And today those famous lines rang true as our 44th President of the United States of America was sworn in! I really didn't think in my life time I would ever see a president who was Africian American. I remember the night he won. After all was said and done. Michelle Obama, Pres. Obama and Joe Biden and his wife (I forgot her name) all joined hands and raised them above their heads I teared up a little bit. We need to be a more united country! I don't care what a persons nationality is, religion, orientation etc is, they are people and deserve to be treated the way I would want to be treated. I am looking forward to the next 4 years! And hopefully another 4 after that!

It's off to work I go....

So last night was my training class (which is 3 days long). It's incredibly boring. To be honest I really don't pay attention because I already know what I am doing! Oh well, it's good to be working again. :). Did I accomplish all I wanted to in 7 weeks off? NOT EVEN CLOSE! Oh well it'll come in time. I had a lot of fun, and spent way too much money! Good thing I am back to work!! :).

I also have been enjoying American Idol. That show is so addicting! :). Man, I sound pretty lame don't I!

I went back to the gym this week. Even not going to the gym for 4 weeks, I've managed to not gain back the 4 lbs I lost. I'm noticing that I am losing inches also! WOOHOO! Life is good!

I am such a nerd!

Well I will probably blog more about this in the next 5 months so I might as well just get that out of the way at the moment :). Anyway, I am so happy that tomorrow my favorite TV show returns! :). AMERICAN IDOL! That show is totally addicting. And I love watching people sing. And making fun of those people who can't sing! :). WOOHOO! I don't even know why I am blogging about this. HA!

Oh yeah, can someone tell me how to do a playlist for my blog? I know how to do it for other sites. Just not this one... And how do you do pictures? Am I a total idiot?! HELP!

GRRRRR! Can my day get any better?!

For the past 2 days it has been snowing so I haven't ventured out to go anywhere really. So, with it being nice today decided to go on a bit of a drive....stupid mistake. I got pulled over by a cop and got a stupid speeding ticket! Apparently I was going 13 miles over in a 30 mile zone. However, he dropped it down to only going 9 over! But still I am a little pissed off. GRRR! Looks like I am going to traffic school!

I know what you are thinking, you wanted to be furloughed from work! I did! This is week #7 being furloughed. They've started calling people back! They have to go off performance numbers to have you come back. It's stupid I know! I had a lot of fun being off from work the end of November/all of December. But now I am ready to be back to work. I am bored. BORED! BORED! BORED! It doesn't help that we are having a lot of snow either. I have stayed home a lot since the weather has been so crappy! AHH! I want to go on vacation this year and I have some things to pay off. So dang it. Call me back IRS! I know you are getting ready to get hit with taxes. C'mon... I will be waiting for my call from my manager!!! AHHHHHHHHH! BOREDOM! Kill me please. On a brighter note. AMERICAN IDOL STARTS NEXT WEEK! WOOHOO!

The score was 31 Utah -- 17 Alabama! YAY! How awesome. Now with us not being a BCS team we won't be able to be number 1 in the country due to the stupid national championship.. But we will be 2nd or 3rd.. WOOHOO!!! I can not wait to go to the games next year!! :). Err.. this year!! GO UTES!!!
