So it is Friday and Trent and I are still at work… ugh.  My parents are in town for just a small amount of time, yet we have to work late.  It is really throwing me off my game. Lucky for me, my parents are making us some dinner which means I will be able to walk through the door and eat instead of having to make the dinner. Thank God for mom and dad!

We walk through the door and man oh man have they gone shopping. The got us some more groceries, there is shrimp, asparagus, cheesy mashed potatoes and some homemade chicken nuggets.  OH MY GOODNESS so much food so little time. We all eat generous portions of this wonderful food and sit around and talk for the rest of the night.  

My mom and I went for a walk on the treadmill to have some girl time and we caught up (which is funny cause we at least text once a day).  Oh, how I miss my parents when they are gone.  I just have such a great relationship with the both of them.  Around 11:30 we decide to call it a night and go to bed.  Tomorrow (Saturday) we get to go out on the town to NYC.  I am so excited to go on this adventure with them. YAY Parents.

Momma and Pappa P have finally made their arrival to NJ.  We are so excited for our time with them.  Now if only I could somehow get out of work and go hang out with them for the time they are here…. STUPID RESPONSIBILITIES!  Hahaha.

They got in last night at 9:30pm.  We picked them up at the horrible Newark Airport. UGh, have I mentioned how badly that airport sucks? The signage there alone is enough to make you want to pull your hair out. The signs are brown and they are confusing. Like this whole thing: United Express -Terminal A……. United Express: Terminal C….. umm ok so what terminal do I need to go to?  Is it A or is it C?  we picked A… it was wrong. We than make our way over to Terminal C and it is a ZOO!

There is some cop that is trying to direct traffic but all he is doing is making it so that people almost get into accidents. Really, he is completely unhelpful. The exact opposite really. I finally see my mom and put my body out the window so they can see me. THEY DO!  The literally run across 3 lanes of traffic, through the luggage in the back and get in the car. They made it in the car~small miracle.

We than make our way home, take a wrong turn cause the streets and our GPS are insane. Get home, show them the view of NYC from the rooftop parking, get in and Trent and I go to bed.

My mom has been texting me all morning. She is making us dinner and I have requested something with cheesy potatoes… my FAVORITE! SO far So good.

Oh my goodness you guys!  You will not believe what just happened to me, literally like 5 minutes ago.  So it is morning, I am at work of course.  No one is here besides, Trent, a co-worker, and myself.  Well I decided to run to the bathroom before any one else got here.

The bathrooms are Port-A-Johns. We have 2 right next to one another out in the clearing. When you are in the bathroom you are supposed to lock the door.  This lock will indicate to outsiders that someone is using the restroom because it shows up red on the outside of the door. If the door is unlocked it shows up green. Get it?

Well both showed the signes of green, so I decided to go in the one without the wasps nest because that one makes me nervous a bit. Well I hope the door and there is a co-worked. I scream, try to figure out how I opened the door, say Oh My Gosh, I am so sorry and close it. All while looking him in the eye for what feels like forever! The person in there is on the level of being a boss. He is not on this job, but when I was in MN he was my boss!.

I went to the bathroom, came back in the office and Trent was like “So are ya a little red in the face?”  Now everyone has shown up for work by this time.  I asnwer ‘Who doesn’t like the stupid door when they are in it?”  Everyone of the guys said they don’t!  UGH. Thats what I get for being the only girl on the job! hahaha

OH MY GOSH!  There is someone at work who I swear refuses to brush their stupid teeth.  In the morning this person comes to work (late), looks like they literally just rolled out of bed, and obviously did not take the time to use proper hygene in the morning. I can smell it from miles away!  The thing is, this person has a significant other in their life, which makes it all the more crazy to me!  I mean there are times in life when bad breath happens, but in those times your significant other is there to tell you “Hey, you need to lock that situation up before you decide to head out into public”  I mean do you think they kiss in the morning?  My guess is they do not. I mean seriously, they cannot be kissing right? Oh my gosh, I am going to puke.

Not to mention on top of their morning stentch, they drink coffee (which has problems of its own really)!  So by mid morning the office is just rolling in clouds of this persons breath.

Another thing I do not get is, this person was called out on it the other day and instead of going “Oh my gosh, I am so sorry.  Do you have a mint or a piece of gum?”  They just were like Oh… and then came back to work the next day with the same offending order from their disgusting mouth.

I know I do not always have sparkling fresh breath.  I do practice good hygene though, I floss two times daily (morning and night), brush my teeth at least two times (if not more depending on life), I carry VerMints with me, and I sip on Peppermint Tea.  I also brush my tongue, use a scrapper thing on it, and use Listerine.  These are a few tips that really go a long way in being able to confidently talk to people in the morning!

People if you do not floss you are really missing some serious order causing bacteria!  Teens, if you have braces flossing is a must!  You kind of already stink because there is so much going on in your mouth, and I get that. I have been there.  BUT you must floss those teeth while you have braces because it makes your breath a train wreck otherwise.. no matter how much you brush!

Hahaha sorry about the post, but I am so grossed out right now!  I just wanna go brush my own teeth. I think this is how people become OCD:joking. ( if you are OCD, I know it is a horrible disorder and I am in no way making fun of you or not sympathizing with you).

It is a Dogs Life


SO I hope you all are doing so well. I am doing Grrrreat!   

Yesterday I went to work and it was a bit of a different day for me.  One of the guys I work with brought his dog into work with him because his hotel room was being cleaned.  Well the morning started off fine with the dog, she was a bit jumpy but other than that no big deal.  Mid morning I had to go to t he bathroom, so I figured she would have to go as well. I decided to take her out with me and that went fine until she heard her daddy laughing. She quickly ran away from me to go look for him. NOT A GOOD IDEA IN THE SWAMP!  I am screaming at her she is paying no mind to me. I finally get ahold of her and put her back inside.  Well know she knows her daddy is around and will not stop crying.  Would you like to see what I let her do so she would let me work?

ImageSo she stood up there for the rest of the day so she could look out the window and see her daddy. I got some work done and every left happy 🙂  

I thought it was funny so I thought I would share 🙂

Changes


UGH, so we had to upgrade our work computers with a new Verizon card. We received the card several weeks ago. I did not do the update cause really it freaks me out. My work has to be done and every time I change something it messes up the system.  Well, I got an e-mail saying “Hey you need to do the upgrade”  So I did the upgrade.

It did not work. So right now I cannot do my work because my old internet got turned off and my new internet is not working. So this sucks. This is why I do not like to do these stupid changes. 3G 4G who cares?  It is redic!!!!!

I MOVED!


So, I have been MIA lately and I am sorry.  We moved!  We got the go ahead on Tuesday night, we worked late  that night to finish some things up, we got to the hotel, packed, went to bed, woke up and went back into work for 2 hours, I yelled at Trent something like *I am either working today or I am moving.  I cannot do both. Do you understand what I am saying?*, we left work, drove 1 hour to our new home, moved in, I unpacked, Trent went to work, and we have been unpacking, waiting for furniture to arrive and working ever since. BUSY BUSY BUSY!

Oh, so funny!  So get this, we have xfinity through Comcast now. When we were signing up for it, Trent made sure it had the hunting channel and lo and behold it had 2 -there is a God-.  Well we have not had cable.. well cool cable since the beginning of our marriage.  Well I have been working from home and found out that there is DVR on this thing and you can pause regular tv.. really all sorts of things. Well I made the mistake of telling Trent and guess what we have been watching non-stop now?  Did you guess hunting?  Because if you did, you would be correct.  The only thing is it is literally all we are watching. Forget anything that I want to watch because it clearly does not matter, he will get in all the hunting shows he can. I mean he goes through the list and DVRS almost all of them.  The cutest thing happens though, while he is engrossed in the hunting show, he will ask me if there is anything I would like to watch.  I say I do not know and he kind of  nods his head and we continue watching hunting.

So that is all that is happening here. I do have an OVEN NOW!  So I will be doing some cooking and I will let you know how it turns out. I am stoked!

Oh Cara, you will like this. Trent is calling my toasted skin cheetah print.. He says it goes with my tiger stripes! HAHA.

Hey everyone! We got an email last night saying to come to New Jersey and work out of the office. So we packed up what all we had left in the room and left this morning. We got to the office around 2pm , worked till 6pm, checked into the new hotel, ordered pizza and now watching House!

Thanks everyone for your prayers, kind words, and thoughts the past couple days. You guys uplift me more than you know. Wish me luck with work this week, it is going to be a bit tricky.

Nighty night!

Happy Friday! I got to work from home today and oh my goodness. I was so busy it was crazy, but I was in the zone! I love when work goes by so quickly like that. When I looked at the clock it always jumped 2 hours ahead, so it was super fast day.

Where are we going you ask? Oh we still do not know. The jobsite is buttoned up completely. The office trailers left this morning at 7:30am. We still have no clue where we can go. We do not know if we can go home, we do not know if we should head to the NJ office. We know nothing. SO for the time being we will continue to hang out in our hotel room , which is fully packed. So I am really trying not to stress here people, but it is literally taking everything I have to reign it in. No good.

So because we have no clue where we are going and we found out our winery was having a scratch and dent sale on their red wine, we decided to go ahead and run up there. We purchases a case of wine, then continued to go and buy 3 bottles of champagne and several more bottles of wine from different wineries. Needless to say we opened a bottle tonight. Hahaa. I told Trent, we may have no place to live but never fear….. we have wine! We sound like we drink all the time, when in reality we have a bottle of wine MAYBE once a month. Everything in moderation right?! Haha.

Ok so that is the update. Pray for me please. I am starting to get like…. well like feeling I really want to know where I am going. When it really does not matter. We have enough money in the bank, we have cars that work, we have one another and best off we have a God that knows what He is doing.

Nighty night, I will keep you posted.

Did you forget about me?  I did not forget you, but I have been kind of busy.. Kind of lazy.  Let me do some explaining.

So, we are moving this Friday.  Which is pretty normal. If you will remember from previous posts such as Too Much…blah and Saying sorry. wah wah either way I am not very pleasant during these times.  My new years resolution was to be a bit better in this department.  So this weekend Trent decided we should get ready to move.  Things were pretty much packed, but my house was a mess. Messes stress me out for some reason.  I am not sure why, but I just cannot seem to sleep if I know something really needs to be cleaned. Ya know?

Ok moving on. So like I said.. New Years Res blah blah blah.  I completely shut down!  I am not talking a little bit, I am talking a lot of bit. Like completely just sitting and doing nothing and feeling overwhelmed.  Thank God Trent bucked up and was able to take over the family chores.  Now do not get me wrong.  I made breakfast lunch and dinner. We worked out.  I got things done, just not packing. When Trent and I sat down for dinner on Monday (when it was all over) I told him I realized that I did nothing.  I said “There has to be a middle ground.  Something between stressed and shutting down”  He said he thought I just did not want to go outside and be cold.   I said, well that too!

I am happy he did not think less of me and I am kind of glad he realized I do not like the cold. Hahaha. That is a boys job anyhow right?!  Haha  So that is what is going on here. Oh and in case you want to ask where we are going… I have no clue and we are moving this weekend.

Good times Good times!

Wanna see a pic of us in beautiful MI?
