My Weekly Update


This week was uneventful. To be honest with you, it wasn't horrible, just uneventful. They are still doing my background check for TMobile and I am going to call Monday to get the status of it. When talking to the HR manager she said that they are waiting on it to come back and that things should be set for the November 30th class, so I am crossing my fingers and toes that once my background check comes back they will call me in, ask for my 2 sources of documentation, have me do all my tax forms etc, and will hire me on. I hope hope hope that is what is going on because I have no other prospects at this moment other than the hospital in Lewiston but that has been put on the back burner until I hear back from TMobile. Monday will give me insight on what I need to do.

Yesterday and today Rick and I have been "decking the halls" (corny huh) of the apartment, hanging Christmas lights in every room, putting up our Christmas tree and decorating the hallway into our apartment! Check out the pictures, too cute! I love Christmas way too much but I think it is certainly one thing that my Aunt Jo-Lee (Dads sister) and my grandmother (Dad's mom that I never had the chance to meet because she passed away years ago) have in common with me. My Aunt said that her and her mom used to go all out for Christmas because that was her favorite holiday and it makes me wonder if that is where I get my Christmas love from, my grandmother. I wish I would have known her, my dad says we would have gotten along so well; both talkers, love purses, getting dressed up, and love being strong women. I think that the day I meet her in Heaven will be fantastic, it could give me insight onto who I am as a person.

Rick's mom flew over from England today and will be here through the holiday into the beginning of December. We will be going to see her and she is staying at Rick's Nana's so hopefully we will see her more!

So, I am dying to see Twilight but I havent read the books yet so I wont but I keep seeing the movie trailer and am just jumping to see it! Another movie that came out I want to say a few years ago, The Holiday, I watched this week and fell in love with it... well Jude Law to be more honest with you! Haha. It was such a great holiday movie.. not all about gifts and stuff like that. It was adorable. As I talk about a cute movie, I am watching The Descent, not really a lovey movie. Haha. I'm a dork.

And that is all for now... hopefully the next time I blog I will have great news about a job but until then... I am off to wrap gifts.

It's hard to muffle my laughter

You know what pisses me off? People that break into other people's homes and steal. That's what happened to Rick and I. Someone broke into our apartment and stole some of our things, which were valued over 1k. Fuck. These things we might never see again and it is horrible. It could have been worse, I know BUT it shouldn't have happened at all. I felt violated... it was so strange knowing someone that I didn't know was walking through our apartment. If it was you I think you would understand. I am furious that someone had the balls to break in here but I hate that someone was walking through.. seeing our things, pictures of our family and friends... our animals. For over a week Doodle wouldn't meet us at the door like he usually does which leads me to believe that whoever came in here hit or kicked him because he is so friendly to everyone. Poor cat. He is okay now but let me tell you... if these people or person ever comes back or if someone else breaks in I will be waiting and they will see the end of my gun. I am pretty dead accurate.

The past couple of weeks between dealing with the break in, I have done some dog sitting and I have had some job interviews, one to be a scrub tech in day surgery at St. Mary's Hospital in Lewiston, and one of which is at T-Mobile right here in Oakland. I went through 4 interviews and now they are waiting on my background check so I am hoping that I will hear back from them soon. I need a job!! I know I could do well there. I need them to give me a chance!

So last night I was exhausted.. but I stayed up to watch SNL... and am SOOOOOOO happy that I did!! Paul Rudd was hysterical, but they had a camio.. and it happened to be my favorite musical hottie person... Mr. Justin Timberlake and he looked hot! Amy, you agree, despite the leotard and heels! ha! It was great. I felt horrible because I was dying of laughter while Rick was attempting to sleep in the other room. It was exactly what I needed, I haven't laughed like that in days.

Here's the video... watch it! I know its about 10 minutes, but it is worth it!!!








Did you die of laughter? Ha

Other than that... that has been all that's been going on... so that's my update!

Emotion....less

This is not what I intended
I always swore to you I'd never fall apart
You always thought that I was stronger
I may have failed, but I have loved you from the start
**********************
Really rough week, we were broken into and it has completely shaken me to the core. I am not weak, I am not someone who runs away, but I have cried just because I just dont like the feeling of knowing someone else other than those I know and trust have walked through my home. Once when I was younger, around I want to say 14 someone tried breaking into my parents house.. and I got him out. Who knows if he had any ill will towards us.. but he was from a halfway house but it was still enough to make me terrified. I was a child. I am an adult now and I shouldnt be so jumpy.. so scared, but I am. I feel like I should be stronger for Rick.. stronger for myself, but part of my wants to curl up in a ball for a bit and try to get over this. I will, I know I will, in my own time get past this. I wish I could focus on what was lost but I still feel the need to get comforted. If that makes me weak, then.. so be it.

The economy blows still, I have no job. I applied with 2 different staffing agencies and I actually had an interview with St Mary's Hospital in Lewiston working in the OR. It is a great opportunity but I havent heard back and I wont know for at least 2 weeks because the nurse care manager is interviewing 8 or so people for each of the 4 positions she posted for. It is frustrating because I am playing this waiting game but I am praying and hoping for the best.

Yesterday was a monumental day in history, the USA voted in our first African America President. I personally have no problem saying who I voted for... haha. The only down side of Bush leaving office, yes, there is a downside, is that we are going to have no more Bushism's. If you dont know what I am talking about, go google Bushisms and you will get a shitload of them taken from actual Bush meetings and they are fantastic. I dont think we are going to have the same fun making fun of our president with Obama in office. Who knows though? Mccain and Palin would have made for some funny political jokes. Next time I am voting for Stephen Colbert.

Well, thats all for now...
