Where to start, where to start...
Well as far as the job thing goes, I worked that one day before Nicole went home, 2 days the following week and then 3 days this past week, and then possibly after the holiday we should be back Tuesday-Friday. The pay at this particular job is probably the best I'm going to see EVER in my entire career. For some reason they are paying us time and a half as our hourly rate instead of just the 10% night differential. That means we are making $56 an hour. Can you believe that! My first pay check for our 8 hour day (that we only worked like 4 hours of) was OVER $300. I used to make that in 40 hours working at Cardinal Health 3 years ago. And it's not even really that hard. Granted I've been sick since Monday night from all the YEARS of dust coming off the things that we are taking down and moving around and stuff but it's totally worth it!
The only thing that's NOT worth the money is the fact that I had to stay home for my annual vacation to Maryland for Labor Day weekend. I've been having these coughing fits in the middle of the night and I didn't want to keep everyone in the cabin awake from it so I decided not to sleep over. However Nicole and I did go there yesterday to watch the "Farewell Fling" concert that Shane's uncle Glenn plays with his band every year. I had to see the stage we built in action. L>O>L He even thanked us in the middle of the concert, almost as I was about to blow my nose. That would have been FABULOUS! L>O>L We had a great time and I was SUPER sad to leave everyone. I told Shane's sisters that next year I am coming down with them Thursday morning next year and staying with them til Tuesday.
I guess the one good thing about not going is that I get to spend some time with Nicole for the days off that I have. That's RIGHT PEOPLE...She's BACKKKKK!!! L>O>L Despite being sick I picked her up on Thursday night since we randomly got Thursday and Friday off from work. She's only here for like 2 1/2 weeks though this time. She's not able to take her driver's test until October 2nd so instead of just staying home and fighting with her mom, and because she missed me SOOOOOOOOO much that she wanted to come back and stay again. How could I say no, the girl practically BEGGED ME! L>O>L J/K. I love you woman!!! :)
Anyways...so now that I'm feeling slightly better and I'm not GLUED to a box of tissues I've decided to make pot roast for tonight's dinner. I LOVE POT ROAST!!! I am SO a meat n potatoes kinda girl. It smells AMAZING in my house and the potatoes and carrots haven't even been added yet. I've got 1:35 for that. And when Carrie gets home from work I'm gonna try to get her to help me make a pasta salad for tomorrow night's side dish with the burgers I'm going to make. I love having people in the house that I can cook for. I don't know what I'm going to do when Shane and David do eventually move out. I know I can cook for myself and like freeze the left overs but I like having people here to enjoy it with me, since I'm such a good cook and all. ;)
Oh yea I forgot to mention...(BEEP...BEEP...BEEP, Gotta add the potatoes & carrots. BRB) OK back, well being the CRAZY person that I am, when Carrie asked me if she could crash at my house for the next month until she moves to Croydon I said yes. So now it's a full house with her, Nicole, myself, Shane, David, my puppy Dublin and David's puppy Charlie. FUN TIMES! Should be an interesting month ahead of us.
Also, since I hardly ever treat my mom to things randomly, since this weeks paycheck should be well over $900 I saw that the Beach Boys were playing at the Tropicana in Atlantic City on Black Friday so I order us 2 tickets to go see it. I wanted to surprise her, but I wasn't sure if she was gonna want to go or not so I had to ask. However I am going to surprise her with WHERE the seats are. I got like Row 5 CENTER, on like the right side center, but in the center section. She is going to be so happy when we finally get there.
This means that this year I will have gone to a total of 8 concerts. I saw Eve 6 with Katie in April, All Time Low with Tara in June, Vans Warped Tour with Ashley in July, Tori Amos twice in August with Nicole, Blink 182 in August with Ashley, I'm gonna see Cartel with Ashley in October and then the Beach Boys with my mom in November. I think that is the most I have gone to ever in one year. What I should try to figure out is all the people I have seen and how many concerts I have gone to. By now it's probably well over 50 concerts and probably over a 100 bands or people.
Tonight is definitely a laid back day, for the rest of it that is. Nicole is showering now and then we are going to play Lego Batman for the rest of the night I believe and then eat the pot roast around 7:30ish. We are like 91% done Batman, I want to see what happens when we beat the entire thing. I just hope we don't argue too much while playing though, things can get pretty intense, can't they woman. L>O>L
Alright, well I've typed enough for one day. I hope you guys are having an amazing & healthy weekend unlike me, L>O>L
