Stresssssssssssed out

I am so tired and stressed out its ridiculous. I really just wanted to stay in bed today but I will be off work on Friday and didn't think it was best to be out two days. I have such a hard time "letting go" of things that are out of my control. I took my polygraph two weeks ago and I knew I passed but I have been waiting for a phone call letting me know if I was going to continue moving forward. I have been on pins and needles waiting and he finally called yesterday to let me know my psych appointment is set for Friday morning. That was a relief getting his call but now I'm nervous about Friday. I guess I'm nervous because its something I haven't done before and not sure what all to expect.

I have also been stressed about Frappy, he has had 3 more seizures in the last couple weeks, and it terrifies me because I am not ready to lose him. I hate not knowing how much longer he will be around. I hope I have at least 3 years! He is a little fighter and I love him so much.

This morning I went and signed a conditional job offer which pretty much says as long as I pass psych and the medical, the job is mine...
I am pretty useless at work today... my head is elsewhere. And I am tired.
Happy Wednesday friends :)

Christmas has come and gone!!

Its amazing how fast Christmas has come and gone!!! I traveled up north with my dad to spend Christmas Eve and Christmas morning with my sisters and the kids. It was so nice having my family together, a Christmas I wont forget. These past few years have been so much more exciting with my niece and nephew in the picture, its all about them! I love watching Caden get more and more excited each year. This year he slept in until 8 and my sister had to finally wake him because we were all ready to open gifts! Here is my Christmas in pictures!!
Oh ya! The bf got me a LV!!

I was so shocked!!

Face time with the bf who was at home

Chatting away...
Loving her new doll
Love these kids!

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend!! I am fighting a cold of some sort so I gotta get to bed early again tonight. I can't wait to catch up on your blogs tomorrow!!

2 days til Xmas!

Can you believe how fast the month of December flew by?! I cannot believe in just two days its Christmas!
3 more hours and I will be outta work and I still have to go shop for a few more things!! Wish me luck!! 
The bf and I are very lucky to have so many things so its very hard to shop for someone who has everything under the sun. But I gotta think of something! And fast!!
My manager and another manager both got my gift cards and then combined with my other gift cards, I have all these!!

I will be drinking free for awhile!
Well tomorrow I will be off to my sisters house so I will not likely be blogging until Sunday...
I hope you all have an AMAZING holiday weekend and know that I am so appreciative of all of you for following me!

Cookies, Cookies, Cookies

Friday night I had my girlfriends over for an evening of baking and decorating cookies. My older sister was in town and she and my nephew came which was extra special. He loved all the attention from all the girls. He was our personal little photographer too! He would say, "come on girls, come over to the couch for a picture!" Too cute. So here we all are...

I wish I would have taken more pictures!

Saturday I had to do a sit-along at the Sheriffs department which entailed sitting with a dispatcher for 4 hours to get an idea of what the job consists of. Due to the rain, it wasn't as busy as it might have been but I still enjoyed being there. People sure call 911 for some ridiculous reasons... Anyways, I am still waiting to hear what the situation is with my background stuff...

Hope you are having a good Monday

Secret Santa

We have been playing Secret Santa at work for the past two weeks and we finally revealed ourselves today! I had NO idea who had me. We were supposed to leave little clues to help the person make some guesses but I really had no idea. The lady I sit close to told me she had our other buddy, but all along she had me! I didn't figure it out until the other person opened her present and her SS revealed herself. I was tricked!! I am so happy she had me though! Here is what I got!
A Starbucks cup and gift card! She definitely went over the $10 limit!

I am so looking forward to tonight!! I am having my favorite girls over to make Christmas sugar cookies and just spend time with one another. My sister and the kids are coming and I am SO excited to see them. Only 2 more hours of work and I'm outta here!!

4 Eyes

I can no longer call the bf 4 eyes! Not that I ever did it to be mean, but now he can almost see! Its really incredible how far technology has come! It only took about 10 minutes total for the lasik procedure and we were on our way home in no time. He was uncomfortable for some time, felt like he had sand or eyelashes in his eyes... but he just slept the afternoon/night away. Here he is on the way home...
Don't you love those eye shields? bahahaha

Tonight we are off to a Mexican dinner to celebrate his birthday with about 15 of our close friends.
And thank gosh tomorrow is Friday!

Wednesday, December 15, 2010


I had my polygraph this morning and I passed so I am one step closer to the goal!

Now I am waiting for the bf at the Lasik center, he soon will be able to see without glasses/contacts! And it's his birthday! Happy Birthday babe! I love you!!

Giving back...

My company adopted a family for Christmas and I really wanted to contribute. The little girl asked for a barbie and I couldn't wait to get her one. I headed to Target last night and it seemed like they were low on Barbies! I found one I liked and I wrapped it and then realized I forgot to take a picture.
Here is what she really looked like

It feels really good to be a part of something like this at Christmas time. I am so glad I can make someone's day a little brighter.

Ornaments & Frappy

I had a really great weekend doing a bunch of different things! I was able to go to bed early two nights because the bf was working and I got a lot ready for my cookie party this coming Friday.
Saturday night I went to the local harbor and watched the parade of lights and then watched the UFC fights. Any of you into UFC? I just don't understand why they enjoy beating each other up but I kinda watched with one eye.
Yesterday we drove to one of the better malls and got a few ornaments. I only have a picture of one but here it is,

We also enjoyed a bagel and Starbucks in the 80 degree weather, it was perfect.

And lastly, I tried to wrap presents but Frappy wasn't really having it...

I am so happy its Friday... although I keep looking at the clock and it seems to be barely moving... I came in early so that I could leave an hour early... come on 4pm!!

Last night we had dinner with two other couples who are pretty much our best friends as a couple. Then I came home and watched Oprah... and my heart is still hurting from watching. Did any of you girls watch it?
It was about the Petit Family in CT, the father was the only survivor. I can only hope that man finds happiness one day. I do not know how you carry on after losing everything you had. Here is an article that tells their story.

I don't have too much planned this weekend, doing dinner tonight with a friend and maybe some present wrapping this weekend. Hope you all have a great weekend!

Jenn over at Westsachoney makes the cutest custom onsies and I knew I had to have one for my goddaughter that will soon be making her debut in this world. Jenn was super fast and I just love how it turned out.

In the second picture you can see the stitching and cute fabric.

Happy Humpday!

Favorite Xmas Item

I enjoyed a quiet night in last night and turned the lights on the tree and just enjoyed the atmosphere in my living room. I realized my most favorite item: the stocking my mom made for me. Now that she is gone, its the only thing I really have from her. It is my most prized possession and I will never take my eyes off it.

I got the iphone 4! Radio Shack is having this awesome deal when you trade in an older iphone you get money off the iphone 4. Since I had the 3g before, I got $75 dollars off making my total $117. Can't beat that!  I didn't really need a new phone, but the price was great and there are some features I didn't have before. The camera takes such clear pictures, I can now face time when the boy and I are apart, and can even take little videos.

I also saw the movie Burlesque this weekend. I thought it was really good! I have never been a huge Christian Aguilar fan but she has an amazing voice! The movie line reminded me of Coyote Ugly but I still really enjoyed it.

I also just got a call from the Sheriffs department saying they are moving forward with my background and scheduled my polygraph for next week! I am so excited/nervous!! I want this job so bad!!

Lastly, here is a new vase I picked up at TJ Max.

Jury Duty

I feel like I have been away from blogging for quite some time! I had jury duty on Wednesday and I was kinda hoping to get put on a case, but kinda not because I don't have anyone trained at work that can do my job. Right at 9am, they started calling names left and right. I guess it was a busy day because there were 124 trials for the day. After the morning break, the lady said she had some bad news.... That a court 45 minutes away needed a panel. I wasn't really paying attention but heard my name and thought no way! But sure enough, I had to drive out there and eventually was picked to be a juror. The trial started yesterday morning and it was over a civil issue. One lady had loaned her brother and his wife $80 thousand dollars and was never paid back the full amount. Long story short, it seemed like both women were lying and our job was to decide who was telling more of the truth. Yesterday we were given a 2 and a half hour lunch and when we got back, we were told both parties had settled over lunch. So that's that... I am happy that we didn't have to decide something that would ultimately affect one of them.... but I would have liked to know what they decided.
So I am back at work... I would have liked to be out one more day :)

This morning I had my interview with my background investigator. I thought it went well... they even asked for my email and password to my facebook... crazy right??
The sucky part is that I am a alternate... I need someone to get disqualified or drop out somehow in order to be one of the four they are going to hire...
I have to hope it will all work out the way its supposed to...
