BYU/UTAH Football game..

GOTTA LOVE COLLEGE RIVALRIES! I enjoyed the game and maybe got a little wrapped up in it. :). Though the Utes came up 3 point short I am not complaining because Utah sent the game into overtime. Gotta love a Ute/Cougar game that is close. The final score was 26 to 23. I was very offended by BYU'S QB Max Hall's remarks. I know people get so heated up about a game that they say stupid stuff. But man how classeless did he look. I don't care that he hates me as a person since I am a Utah fan. HAHA! But just the way he came across really ticked me off. Glad he's gone after the bowl game. Sure, he apologized. Great! Don't they all when they say something stupid. I am sure for years Max Hall felt this way. Why couldn't he leave it in the locker room or for the BYU players to hear. NO, he had to act classless and go on about hating Utah. Bye Max! Glad you felt you had to be a jerk after your TEAM WON! Glad you are finally gone. I know it's just football. But those comments ticked me off haha! And I had to put my two cents in. If no one agrees with me... then it's okay I am not out to please everyone!

10 things I am thankful for...

1. A great family.. even though at times they drive me batty I wouldn't trade my family for the world.

2. My wonderful friends... I could not ask for better friends! :). I've been truly blessed with the friends I have. I count those blessings everyday!

3. My job... Yeah, it's not my favorite job and I am still learning and I find it rather stressful at times but I am SO THANKFUL for a job when a lot of my friends are furloughed/laid off. I am grateful for a decent job in this economy.

4. I am thankful to be an American. I do not take my freedoms lightly. I am free because many women and men died for me.

5. I am thankful for freedom of religion..and being able to belong to whatever religion I want. Many countries do not have that freedom!

6. I am thankful for my good health.

7. I am thankful for a warm house to live in when many people are on the streets.

8. I am thankful for awesome co-workers..(past, present, future). I have worked with some amazing people the past 9 almost 10 years i've been working. Many have become dear friends of mine. They have taught me more about myself than I can ever imagine!

9. I am grateful for my dog Annie who basically my child :). I love her so much..

An update into my busy life....

So, the swine flu didn't kill me! But I sure felt like I was dying. It was awful! I hate being sick. And I normally now do not get sick much. But that defnitely kicked my butt. I even missed a football game to stay home in bed. I had offered my tickets to my friend's uncle and cousin from Tooele. My friend came and picked up the tickets and brought me some movies to watch and some sprite.. :). But I am all better. :)

Also my mom and her boyfriend are getting married on November 25th. They are either getting married at a courthouse or by a bishop. I am one of the witnesses. He is a really good guy and I couldn't be happier for them. So, that week will be a busy one.

I went to the So You Think You Can Dance top 10 show last Saturday. I went with my friend Felice, her mom Laurell (it was her birthday), and Felice's Aunt Evelyn (our friend was supposed to go but decided not to at the last minute). I also had to miss another football game but gave the tickets to my brother and his girlfriend. They had a fun time! I went to a jewelry party right before I headed to layton.. Then we picked up Evelyn in SLC and gave their football tickets to her two uncles. Then we went to the Macaroni Grill. IT was delicious. We went to the mall and then went to the E-Center for the show. It was so good! The only think I did not like was the screaming girls!! That got really annoying.. Was I that annoying as a teenager? Probably.

My new job is alright. I like the people ALOT. I just really don't like the job all that much. It's mostly all on the computer and some nights I go home with a horrid headache. But, unlike a bunch of my friends from my other department I am working. I am grateful for that. My old department furloughed most of their seasonals until January! Talk about a weird year. Even with the economy being bad I still think that department is going to work their seasonal taskforce as little as they can. :(. I keep telling all my friends it's time to get out!!!!

I am looking forward to the holidays this year even though I will be working. I love being with friends and family around the holidays. I also love buying gifts for people even if they don't give me anything..that's not the point of christmas. I just love to give..even when I get nothing in return. I would love to give all my unemployed friends and family members a job for Christmas. But hey maybe next year the economy will be on the rebound..

This is my random rant today. I was watching the news since I have today off for Veterans Day. And I heard that they want to send more troops to the middle east. Yeah, it seems like the President I thought was going to give me hope and bring our troops home is a liar and has his own AGENDA for everything. Whatever.. I am very disappointed in Obama and he hasn't even been in office for a year. GRR!!! I loved him at first but now..I am thinking... why did I vote for him?!
