    I hate normal vacuums, I love the Sharks. Why oh WHY did my second job insist on buying a big bulky vacuum?

    I am getting very sick of waitressing, and getting very very tired of aching feet.

    I have a day off today (before I'm off for 2 mos for summer starting June 11th), & it's been nice! :D

    On a different note, I found a great site where I can get a LOT more printer ink for my money!...my days of paying high prices at the office supply store are over!

    To whip cream junkies: do NOT practice before meeting your trainer at the gym. Bad, bad things will ensue.

    Re: thunder storms: I miss them sorely. We don't have thunder here for some reason.

    They have a Burn Notice marathon on USA this morning, and I'm falling more and more in love with Michael after each episode. I think dh looks a bit like him, although not as tall. They are both too uptight. Dh does not try to blow things up or have anyone hunting him. They both have strange mothers. And I like to think I'm Fiona's double, minus the huge closet full of guns (cough, cough...).

    I forget where I ordered my cartridges - online somewhere. The price was awesome. I think I checked on ebay stores.

    Do you think it sounds like a threat when the AP says, "Expect changes. I have a stack of resumes 6 inches high"? Then they don't give us contracts but tell us they will contact us over the summer. Huh???

    That sounds curious. My school did something similar. We got our contracts late (early May rather than mid-April). I signed mine right away and give it back as did most people. However, nothing is official until the P and pastor sign them as well. We didn't get them back until the last day.

    I had a Sony T70 camera (the touch screen one), well the backlight in the LCD screen quit working and the Geek squad at Best Buy sent it to be fixed. Well they couldn't fix it and "junked it out" (LOL), so they called me to come in and get a new one. Well for junk outs, you have to get similar technology not by price range. Most of the cameras there were 10mp and over and mine was 8mp since I had bought it 2 years ago. If Best Buy wanted me to get similar technology they should have just had Sony send me the exact same camera. So we argued with the salesperson at Best Buy and she said okay, you can get one you want in the same price range as your Sony and we'll override it. The manager told the sales girl to do it. I love my boyfriend! He's such a negotiator to get us what we deserve. I would have been nervous to try and argue back and probably would have just walked away without a camera.

    I'm getting married in just over 3 months time. I'm super excited! Fi has told me that he wants to start trying for a baby soon after the wedding - exciting but nerve wracking too! After nearly 10 years as a full-time nanny with 8 of them looking after newborns - preschoolers I know how amazing and exhausting kids can be! Part of me is terrified!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    We went to my husband's company's picnic yesterday and we won a $25.00 gift card to Wal-Mart and a 26 inch flat screen TV which was the grand prize.

    I'm taking a day off from work today. Going to send out some resumes. :whistle: I just can't seem to get things like this done during the week and this past weekend I went out of town. It was nice to get away for a bit but I had no time to run any errands!

    I totally agree with you, STG! If I knew by doing this I would definitely get a job it would be different. But I'm afraid that I'm doing all of this work and I won't get a job for the fall, but at the same time I know if I don't do it I won't even have the possibility of getting a job. It's just so mentally exhausting!

    I hope all the job seekers out there still enjoy your summers, despite the fact that you're seeking out a job! :D

    Yesterday, my BF helped me clean up my den. The room isn't that big, but it took a LONG time! Next, I need to tackle a walk-in closet!

    I saw both. I was bothered by some parts of He's Just Not That Into You...

    It was cute don't get me wrong, but I felt like some parts of the movie glorified adultery.

    I actually ended up browsing around Office Depot too because I never go there. Then, I had a nice workout at my gym.

    I hope you had a nice day.

    It has nothing to do with coins. Level is based on experience points from plowing, planting, buying stuff at the store. I bought a house and went up half a level!
