update on our oh-so-interesting life

Well boys and girls..I am officially out of the world of web.  Not having internet at the house sucks a big monkey...toe.  I can live with out the whole cable get-up, but internet? No sir-ee-bob.  I have literally tried every nook and cranny in our house to see if we pick anyones internet up and, well obviously, I haven't had any luck. My guess is that we are just going to have to suck it up and get our own, which would just make me the happiest girl in the world right now!

Since we are internet-less right now I am sure you are wondering how in tarnation I am writing and publishing this blog post..or not.  I am "dog sitting" my furry cousin Shadow.  Turns out he's the laziest dog on the planet and there's not too much "dog sitting" going on rather than me bribing him with Saltine crackers to make his fat booty go outside.  That would normally be stupendous except for the fact that when I finally do get him outside, all he does is plop down in the grass.  Needless to say, we are going through approximately 9 crackers a day. Anywho, I am here until Friday which is great because- a) there's cable here..and b) it's Shark Week on Discovery.  Need I say more? Mmmkay, that's what I thought.

Adam is officially done with summer classes..I don't know who is more excited, me or him.  I'm sure he's more excited, but I am definitely glad it's over because I can only handle him repeating his presentation speech so many times.  I think he made A's in both classes...thank ya Jesus! He has also been helping with a few baseball camps at Bama which has to be miserable because it's hotter than 40 freakin' Hades right now.  I think he has a week and a half off of school until the fall semester starts.

How's work going? Oh I am so glad you asked!  Well, SURPRISE! I have a new job.  Yes, that's right, I've been home for one month and I am on job #3...that's got to be some kind of record.  I should be starting at my new job by the end of this week or the beginning of next week.  The previous place I worked at (job #2 for those of you keeping up) just wasn't busy enough for me to stay.  I understand that these days most people are cutting out "pampering" in the budget, but I wasn't getting paid hourly there.  At all of the other places I've worked I got an hourly wage plus commission and tips.  So considering I did more sitting than I did massaging, I had to explore my other options! The place I am at now will pay me salary, so no matter how many massages I do, I will still get paid! I do have the option to switch over to commission, but I am probably not going to do that until I have a steady clientele built up, or until Adam is out of school.  That way I know how much I will bring home every month! I am the 4th massage therapist at this place, so that says a lot.  They wouldn't have hired me if they didn't need a 4th therapist..so obviously they are doing plenty of massage therapy :)

This past weekend we had Hunter's birthday party.  It was just family and a few of his friends there, but he had fun! It was a Toy Story 3 themed party.  We had 2 Buzz Lightyear slip-n-slides and one Buzz Lightyear pool.  It was a good this because turns out it was 415 degrees outside.  Funny thing is that Robbys AC wasn't working..it was nice and toasty in the house...it was kinda hectic.  I learned one, maybe two, valuable lessons that day.  1) party planning is not my calling...partying, maybe.  But planning, definitely not. 2) Future parties will be held somewhere where other people set up and clean up for you.  So take note folks, when we have kids you will never come to my house for a party.  K. That's all.

My Dad came down for the festivities.  He hasn't been to T-Town in quite some time so I was happy to have him stay at our abode! We set up the guest bedroom for him..air mattress and all :)  We went out to dinner with my two brothers and Aunt Lori and Uncle Charley (they were in town moving in my cousin). It was nice to catch up with them! My Dad took me the next morning to get some much needed groceries..and most importantly...Season 3 set of Grey's Anatomy.  No cable = me watching all of the seasons of Grey's.  Thanks Dad!

Ok, I think this is long enough...I'm going to go watch Teen Mom now...don't judge.
