Dear Diary Friday...

YAY it is Friday! And guess what? Raspberry flavored coffee smells just like that stuff we use to buy as kids that you would squeeze it out of a tube, put it on the end of a straw and make a bubble out of it....latexy or rubbery or something like that....but raspberry flavored coffee smells JUST LIKE IT. And no, I won't be drinking that coffee.

I got home last night from my folks house and Dylan and I had sandwiches and then decided to go and read for a couple of hours....and both of us fell asleep! Unfortunately, we were both wide away at midnight because our room was so warm and stuffy....oh, and because Spooky decided to start "talking" to us at about that time. I did manage to get back to sleep at about 2:00, which was nice.

This is my Mom's birthday weekend! We are gonna get her some books, take her and my Daddy to dinner, and I am spending Sunday with her....hopefully taking her to check out IKEA, but we will see what she wants to do. All I know is that I want her to have a wonderful, wonderful birthday!

Happy Weekend Everyone!

Dear Diary Thursday....

I ended up working almost two hours over yesterday to help with some projects. I had a really nice co-worker of mine come and ask me if I could help with two clients...neither of them was his or mine...but he had been contacted by the sales exec of these clients to "reach out" to them for some issues they were having. Well, for this co-worker, I would do just about anything because he is super nice and for the owner of the accounts, I would do just about anything...well, at least yesterday I would have. So, I reached out to the client, took care of their issues, responded to their e-mails AND directly called them to add a personal touch. Everything was under control....then I come in this morning and the owner of the accounts immediatly starts in with how NOBODY ever helps them out with the amount of work they have...blah blah blah. Did I pipe up with "Hey! I did your job for you yesteday!"....nope, I didn't. Why? Well, this person commented when both myself and my back up took the same day off a couple of weeks ago....keep in mind that it was ONE DAY (a Friday) and I asked if this person would mind just being my "back up" for the one day if any issues came up....which no issues came up in my accounts on that day. Well, her comment too the team lead was, "Lorene and her back up should not both be allowed to have the same day off"...hmmmm....interesting. This co-worker and the back up have more days off together than ANYBODY I have ever worked with in my LIFE! So, I figure that this co-worker will eventually get the e-mails that I cc'd them on about their accounts and MIGHT actually come and say something to me about it...and then GOD HELP THEM!

Dear Diary Wednesday...

Oh Gawd, I fucked my back up some how! By the time I got home from work yesterday, I was almost in tears because it hurt so bad. And this morning, it hurts worse AND my right leg feels like it wants me to tear it off and feed it directly to a hyena. Yeah, I don't feel so well. I have taken a whole bunch of Tylenol and I am hoping that the pain stops. I knew I should have called into work today because now that I am hear, and hurting, I have no desire to get back into my car and drive home...IT HURTS TOO MUCH!

My cousin ended up going in for surgery yesterday afternoon for the blockage in her intestines. Apparently the Crone's disease killed off another section of her intestines, a part she had surgery on a few years ago, and they had to remove more of that part, resection her intestines, and close her up....but the prognosis so far is really good. I will know more later today and I am sure I will be going to visit her this afternoon to check on her myself....making sure she is staying in bed and not ripping out any more tubes! So, now we need to start working on getting her better so that her husband can go under the knife in July for his brain tumor and we can work on getting him healthy. Yeah, it is gonna be a fun summer.

Dylan came home in not such a good mood. Unfortunately, he did not get the job he had applied for and no matter what I was saying, he couldn't see the "good side" of least not right now. However, we are gonna have a fabulous weekend to make up for this and get his mind off things.

Congrats to Toni and Rob on taking the next step to getting their hot tub! HOORAH!!!! I know with having my jetted tub and how much I enjoy THAT piece of equipment that we will, from now on, only see Toni and Rob with wrinkly prune skin from spending every waking moment in that bliss!! GOOD ON YA KIDS!!!!

Dear Diary Tuesday....

The weekend was WONDERFUL and productive!

Friday (yes, I took Friday off) we spent the entire day, afternoon, and evening cleaning the entire house. Nothing in the house got missed....everything was scrubbed. And while Dylan was finishing his part, I managed to sneak outside and mow and trim the entire yard. It was a hard labor day, but it needed to be done and looked wonderful after it was completed.

Saturday we got up and went to Weight Watchers and then we did some running around. We then got dinner and settled in to watch the UFC pay-per-view, which was WONDERFUL! It was nice to have a bit of a relaxing day after Friday.

Sunday we went to see "Bug" which has to be the WORST movie ever made. It was INSANELY bad and Dylan and I ended up laughing through most of it. We then went and looked around Daybreak and then headed home. We stopped and got some videos, got dinner, and then settled in to watch movies all was so much fun.

Yesterday Dylan worked on putting our DVD cabinets together and I went over to my folks to help out my Daddy. We ended up cleaning out both of the greenhouses, cleaning the garage, fixing some sprinklers. I then went inside and helped my Mom with making some lasagna and then headed home to relax. We then had dinner, finished watching our one last video, and cuddled up to sleep...or hope to sleep since Dylan had to go into work last night. He didn't manage to get much sleep before he had to leave....poor guy.

We are already in the process of making plans for this coming weekend....which is a birthday weekend for my Mom. We are gonna go shopping for her b-day and for Father's Day and have a few other things in store. It will just be nice not having to scrub the entire house down!
