Viva Las Vegas

Just got the email that the Vegas gig went through. I talked to one of the sites and am trying to go out there in two weeks. It would work out awesome since its the week Grumpy turns 40 and I'd take him with me and two of my au pairs will be in Vegas that week too. We'll see the one site I talked to had some scheduling problems. I haven't talked to the other one.

But anyways I will be in Sin city every 4-5 weeks so if anyone is heading out that way let me know and maybe we can meet up.

On other news we are waiting for the pool to arrive I can't wait it will be so much fun. Its an above ground so we should be able to get it up and running quickly. It comes with a volleyball net I am looking forward to have lots of pool parties at the house. We also got this hexagon cabana so we can hang out without being eaten by mosquitoes.

Tags, new toys and more

I have been terrible about blogging lately. Reading as well as writing. I don't know if it is the fact that I am glued to a computer most of the day or what. But I do have things to write about so brace yourself this will be a bit of a long post.

First things first - I GOT A NEW TOY. Isn't it cute????????? I am totally in love with it. Its the T-mobile wing. My company really wants us to go blackberry but I just can't go from smart phone to blackberry so after an hour or debating in the store the Wing is what I got. Its so great it even talks to me and tells me whats on my schedule and the titles and senders of emails. I love the touch screen (stylus included in the phone) but the hideaway keyboard makes emailing so much easier.

I also downloaded this new program I found - MyPersonalDiet. This program is great to keep track of calories and exercise. You enter your goal, pick a diet and then enter what you do and eat all day. It tells you after each entree if you need to lose calories or gain more. I ended up going to the gym twice the first day because it told me after dinner i had to burn 800 cals to stay on track. It has a lot of food preprogrammed but also lets you enter your own stuff. That feature is good for me since most of my foods / meals are not found in there. I tell you the program has been an eye opener to me you don't realize how much calories you truly eat and how much calories some of the foods have.

On other news I finally finished my wedding album and honeymoon album - or so I thought. I did finish the honeymoon one but as I went through my box of photos to decide on my next project I realized I still had stacks of wedding pictures. So when I go back to "craft club" later this month I will try to finally finish the wedding album - I mean its been 3 years!!!!!!!!!!

Lets see nothing much new from the job - still love it and I found out the other day that I get to have a new site in Las Vegas and I am to be the back up for one of the other girls in my team that is to have a Hawaii site starting late this summer. How cool is that, I get to go to Vegas once a month and potentially Hawaii everyso often!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Now to the tags

Angel had tagged me eons ago - I can't find her post so I have to go by memory - it was to post a screen shot on what your desktop looks like so here it is - this is what the desktop of my home laptop looks like

Eternally Curious

List 5 things in my bag:
Wallet, PDA, T-mobile wing, pens, Garmin Nuvi

List 5 favorite things in my house (sorry there aren't enough favorites in my room):
my pets, my TV, my books, my magic bullet, techno gadgets

skydive, vacation on a horse ranch, drive a motorcycle across the US & Europe, learn to scuba, go along on a mission to help the third world

List 5 things I am currently into:

So there you have it. Anyone what would like to be tagged - consider your self tagged for either or both.

I am off to the gym I need to work off some calories so I can actually have dinner! After that its off to wash clothes and pack since I will be in Charlottesville most of next week.

Little devil

So I hope everyone had a nice mothers day weekend. Grumpy and I have been social butterflies this weekend. Friday we went out with friends to this yummy Greek restaurant. Awesome food and yours truly managed to polish of an entire bottle of Gewuertztraminer by herself.

Saturday we were invited to one of my coworkers for a birthday party. The small get together that I was expecting turned out rather large and a bit uncomfortable since we really didn't know anyone there. But everyone loved my desserts - I had made the strawberry tortelets and this obviously I am not as good as our Ms Jin when it comes to making cakes looking scrumptious but I assure you it was demolished in no time despite its look.

Today we had invited Davids mom and her husband for lunch to our favorite Indian restaurant.
The food was great but the lunch was made uncomfortable since a certain former friend was sitting a table away. I was polite and greeted her and lunch buddy which I thought was still a friend of mine. At some point I noticed they had snuck out didn't even bother to say good bye. While I didn't expect the former to say bye the other one I would have expected too. But I guess that was to much to ask for - back to kindergarten behavior I assume. Oh well can't help those that don't want to be helped right?

After lunch Grumpy had to go to work and I took a nap. When I woke up I noticed the door to the garage was wide open. I knew Cleo was upstairs since the dogs were in but I couldn't find Misty anywhere. I looked in every room then checked the garage. I started to panic that she was out there - there is still poison from the mice and so many other dangers and we had taken her collar off so if she managed to get outside no one would know where she belonged. I searched and called for her for about 1/2h when I sat down to call Grumpy and tell him about it. After I hung up the phone wouldn't you know she came leisurely walking down the stairs, sat down in front of me yawning giving me this look as if she was saying "YOU CALLED?" That little devil nearly gave me a heart attack.

It's been THREE years

Us at our wedding 05.05.05

Wow it's hard to believe that tomorrow is our third anniversary. Funny enough it's the first anniversary that we are able to celebrate together. I was out of town for the past two needless to say Grumpy was anxious to find out if I was going to be around this time.

We are heading to Charlottesville tomorrow where we'll check into this lovely B&B. I have a visit at my site on Tuesday which is why we are heading out that way. Grumpy gets to do the tourist thing while I work Tuesday. Speaking of tourist thing here we are on top of a 2K mountain in Austria during our Honeymoon in June 05.

Piztal, Austria 6/05

Well in other notes. Grumpy is working hard now being the GM of the store. Lots of hours I rarely get to see him awake for more than 5 min. I wouldn't mind if his paycheck would catch up with him but those people are soooooo slow and he hasn't even gotten his assistant Manager raise yet urggggggggg

Oh I decided to spend more time scrap booking. I have boxes of photos that need to be put in albums. I did a scrap book au pair meeting this afternoon with one of the peps from Creative Memories and got her schedule for the crops she hosts. This way I get one day a month where I'll do nothing but scrap booking for several hours.
