The Scenery is Here, Wish you were beautiful

Friday at work? Zero focus. I got some busy work done, but I was so wanting to be out the door with the earlier groups that headed up. The only things that kept me sane were my silly inquisitive calls to John at Target Optical. He cracks me up!Rosie got a ride to my mom’s […]

Less than 24 hours till the BARE LAKE SHORE

Thursday, June 24th, 2004 Less than 24 hours till the BARE LAKE SHOREI am soooooo ready for a vacation. Granted, an overnight RS retreat at Bear Lake isn’t as tempting or relaxing as say….a tropical island. But it is long overdue. Some girl talk, junk food, spiritual message, a long enough drive to feel like […]

Missed Very Much

Today at work I was having a conversation with a co-worker about music, and was lamenting my missing CDs from my March car break-in. He said, “Okay, I’m sick of hearing about all the CDs you USED to have. Go ahead and replace them and get over it!” So here is the list of the […]

Lunch, Dessert, and Smokin’ Hot Fool

Saturday I took Emily out to Kneaders for a belated birthday lunch. Oh, how I love their turkey sandwiches on focaccia (with extra Kneaders sauce!) But even better than the food was the company. It’s been so long since Em and I had some one on one talking time. (I think it was when we […]

Feeling like an absolute jerk

I’ve always felt like I’m a loyal friend. I have a very hard time giving people up and letting them go on with their lives when circumstances change. This would explain why I have such a large circle of friends and acquaintances. I can be away from a friend for a year…and pick up a […]

"All That’s Left of Me is My Celebrity"

Ah….the Pearl Awards. The equivalent of the Mormon Grammys. The Faith Centered Music Association’s Night of glitz and glamor. Being a devout Eclipse fan, I was thrilled to be there as one of their groupies. But the night was so much more than Eclipse. I had general admission tickets, which put me up in the […]

Rundown of Friday-day

I woke up feeling a bit icky, stomach flu or something. My body protested and protested to get up. But I finally did, had to get Rosie ready to go to Idaho for the weekend. Steve slept in, and wanted to meet me at work, so I met him there and said goodbye to Rosie. […]
