Di still gone

This morning I woke to music. I thought "What IS that?". then I remembered I set the alarm clock to go off. At home I never use an alarm, so it threw me off.

It was about 30 degrees this morning and VERY windy. I picked up some coffee (in front of Home Depot of all places) and headed to work. We met with about 19 people and it went very well.

I got to leave a bit early. I was going to go to the movies but there wasn't anything I wanted to see. I enjoyed my room. I drove around and around looking for something to eat. I didn't want to eat somewhere but I didn't want fast food. I settled for a pita at Jack in the Box.

So get this! As if Wal-Mart isn't evil enough, they now sale gas! Bastards. Right up Bush's alley.

I head home tomorrow, to hold my babies and kiss my husband. I will be coming back within a few months. I will know this town soon!

Where's Di?

Here I am! Yuba city for work again. This time for two nights. I took a couple of pictures on my way. They are from my cell phone, and I was driving, so they aren't the best. I saw about 40 miles of this. I really cracked up when I saw a billboard for Carl's Jr, 10 more miles. 10 miles? I could find 15 Carl's Jr's within 10 miles at home.

The line at the airport was INSANE. About 30 minutes so I could remove my shoes, my laptop, have all liquids, lotions and inhaler in a bag seperate from my carry ons. So what happens, here you are with one carry on and a purse, Suddenly you are holding eight things. Who can move quickly holding on to all that stuff? That is when someone is going to steal your bags. You have to put SOMETHING down!

The people at my work here are SO nice. We just did some training today and tomorrow there are a few meetings. I am enjoying being alone. No husband, no kids. I miss them, but at the same time it is nice. Especially because I am getting paid for it! I went to dinner and just had my book for company. There was a dad with his little girl next to me. It made me miss the kids, but I called them. They were going out to dinner too.

I will be here tomorrow night too. I am sure I will be missing everyone like crazy tomorrow. We have so many things coming up. This weekend is the Torres Christmas Party. Siobhan's dance is coming up, Crazy busy.

Oh by the way, I wanted to let everyone know not to use Dollar Rent a car. They stink. I waited over an hour for a car because they didn't have any. All I could think about was that Seinfield episode where he told them they knew how to take the reservation they just didn't know how to hold the reservation. I mean, that is what a reservation is for right? There were a lot of people calling their offices and telling secretarys not to book them with Dollar anymore. ( I waited an hour last time too).

I am going to go enjoy being able to watch tv in bed. ta ta

ahhh, the holidays

One more day of work for a FOUR day holiday. How wonderful! Four days to be with my wonderful husband and enjoy our children four full days. Maybe we will actually get the Christmas lights up (Bradley) and spend some time with our Wii (no doubt there).

We are going to Siobhan's Nino's house for Thanksgiving dinner. It isn't very far but we think it will take about 3 to 4 hours to get there. The trip might not be fun but I know it will be once we get there. Siobhan is REALLY looking forward to it! Poor Nino Richard probably won't have a moment to himself!

Wii did it!

Bradley and I checked two Targets, K-mart and a Toys R Us and finally lucked out after over an hour wait at Costco. We got one! It is so sweet. I enjoyed the tennis and broke out in a sweat when I was boxing. This thing is way sweeter then I thought it would be. You should go get one. Oh, you probably can't because they are sold out EVERYWHERE!

Deigo enjoying a birthday party

He DID NOT want to wear that hat. I told him if he took the hat off we were going home. This is the result!

Siobhan for Halloween
