Just a few updates

The next week and a half will be blissfully co-worker free. I can't wait to get here. I am so excited to have some drama-free time around here. Of course, she is causing enough drama around here right now things will just be getting back to normal  when she gets back. I'm telling ya, things keep going from bad to worse around here and for some reason I keep getting the short end of the stick. I didn't even get to eat lunch yesterday until 2:30 and I leave at 3. How is that right?

My neice and cousin had a joint birthday party at Chu.ck E Chee.se over the weekend. It was pretty fun. I think we played just as much as the kids did. Hopefully I will actually get the pictures off my camera sometime soon.

We also bought a car. It is by no means a new car, but it's better than what we had. It atleast has a nice cold air conditioner. That is a big improvement.

We are still going to the gym, but I think I may need to change up my routine, not really sure. I've just kind of gone into a blah mode that I need to get out of.  I'm getting bored and that's never a good thing.

I've started a new diet, but I don't want to tell you any more about it until I know if it's working or not. I should know something by the end of the week. If it does work I'll be telling you all the gory details.

We finally got our vacation planned. We are going the first full week of November. Since my dad still doesn't have a job we won't be doing a lot of sight-seeing probably because mom just won't have the money to do much. We decided to go to Lake Sam Rayburn. If nothing else, there should be nice scenery.

I went to talk to my boss yesterday so he could approve my vacation days and I was asking him about how many days I am supposed to get. Since I only work part-time I wasn't sure if I got a full week or not. He told me that I actually have 2 weeks. I was really shocked and didn't know quite how to react. He told me that any time I don't take I will get paid for in January. Sounds good to me. If I had known I had that much time I would have taken some earlier this year. Oh well, the extra money will help make up for the Christmas spending.

Since I'm paying for a car now I will have to try and go easy on the Christmas shopping. I normally have my shopping about done by now, but I have really been slacking off these last couple of years. I think I'm going to gat all the kids gift certificates to Wally World so they can picout things they really want. Or is that really just the easy way out?

I'm supposed to call the Dr on the 9th if AF doesn't come by then, but If this diet works out I may hold off a week or 2 so I can lose a little more weight before I go back.

Other than that things have been pretty normal. For me anyway. I'm off to wish co-worker a fond farewell.
