gonna go to bed here soon after working all weekend, sleep to about 4:00, wake up and fire up the grill. grab a beer and a steak out of the 'fridge, slap the wife on the @ss, and enjoy life.
feels damn good to be an American on a day like today. the sun is shining, the yard needs mowing, the dogs are biting/chewing/slobering on each other and ive got a 30 pac in the garage and 2 t-bones marinating as i type this.
well, yesterday I turned 21!!! so Happy Birthday to me!!! Saturday night I went to a local sports bar/grill and right at midnight, I started drinking shot after shot...and I don't remember the rest of the night, but I'm sure it was fun!!!
Had an awesome party at my place on Saturday. And since I'm getting older, I don't mind that it ended so early (2.30am). Some friends were heading off to the bars afterwards, but I got to pass out, which was nice. Then Sunday, I got woken up so we could race to Best Buy and grab the new Game Boy Advance SP, which is awesome! And I think it was my first enjoyable trip to Best Buy in a long time. Since we got there before they opened, there was parking (a rarity at the local downtown Best Buy) and very little traffic. So, it was a good week-end.
The boyfriend went to a local Zwan concert and said they're amazing live. Two-weekends ago, the theatre three blocks from me had the street blocked off, and Zwan's name on the billboard, I was exctied, thinking they were coming back to town, turned out they were just shooting a video. I was going to join in, thinking that with my green hair, I would have stood out, but I didn't want to wait around all day.
We have been blessed, all in one month, with healthy kids for once LOL, a new house, and 2 new (used) vehicles. We have family from Kansas staying with us this week. We have jobs and even better, bosses who are as good as bosses can be. My 5 year old wrote a whole sentence by herself last week. I have friends who keep in touch with me. I can be happy spending a weekend looking at model homes and having a hot dog from Home Depot afterwards. LOL The sun is out today. I'm not at odds with anyone. I can still find good things to read on this board.
My wife and I have reservations at our favorite restaurant tonight, really looking forward to it. I've been in negotiations to hire a new salesman over from one of our competitors, and today he finally gave me confirmation that he'd be coming over.
hmm... I was able to snag myself a 4 day weekend, so instead of class today, I was able to work on the Mountaineer! No matter how hard the job is on the truck, it's way better then chemistry or calculus.
Nothing like hitting those rear rotors with a BFH!!!
I played one of the best rounds of golf that I have played in a while and shot 5 over...and i got to play with my dad so that was good. And tommorow I get to go put the jet ski in the water and chill at the lake and fool with the golf cart, so that is gonna be a good time...the only thing is that when Monday rolls around it is back to school and on to Finals...that sucks.
