Happy Holidays

I just wanted to wish everyone happy Holidays. Aubrey and Caitlyn, are on their way to AZ with Melissa, and Mae. Elise is going along so that she can fly out to Hawaii for School. Soon Jenny will fly down there, and it will be just Wally and I in the house. Scary I know. We'll try not to burn the thing down ;)

Anyway, I thought I would share this cool video that I found. It is a guy who calls himself Mr. Chi City. I guess this is something that he does every year for random people. Very cool.

Eggs and Pink Paint, or When did driving become a Multi tasking event?

I understand the desire to perform wanton destruction to things. I too was once a teenage hoodlum causing havoc to those around me. One thing that I never did was egg a car. I don?t know if I hold cars with enough respect to not throw eggs at them. I woke up yesterday morning to find around 7 eggs all down the side of my car. This is something that I do not understand. Why someone would want to throw and egg at a car is beyond my comprehension. I did feel lucky today though as a coworker of mine got a call from his neighbor to ask if anything happened to his car. Apparently someone spray painted snitch on the side of his white SUV in pink spray paint. I guess in the long run a handful of eggs down the side of my car beats a little paint.

The second thing I don?t understand is when did driving become a secondary activity when sitting in the drive seat of a car? I have about a 15m minute drive from home to work. I can not believe how many things I see people doing instead of driving their cars on the freeway. People lets think about this, you are traveling around 65-70 Miles Per Hour. If you were to hit a wall because you were distracted doing something you could be killed, or worse yet hit someone else and kill them. As I tried to merge onto the freeway yesterday after work there was a car that was going slower than the average speed of traffic. This was making it hard to get over onto the freeway. I slowed and merged behind the car, and then tried to speed up to the flow of traffic. This lady that was driving the car was trying to light a cigarette, talk on her phone, and drive. I couldn?t believe that she would try to drive and do this as well. The car in the next lane that I was trying to speed up in was also going very slow. As I passed this SUV the driver was doing a crossword puzzle in a book. I was flabbergasted. Why would you think that this would be ok to do why driving? I just don?t understand. So everyone, lets put down the phone, book, or whatever your distraction is and drive your car. Just try to enjoy the drive. Listen to your car, feel the road. I am sure you will find the enjoyment of the drive it you try.

new favorite show.

I just have to share one of my new favorite show. Spaced with Simon Peg, and I get to point out that I watched it before Elise.
It's a great show, but then again Simon Peg and nick Frost. Who wouldn't love it.

Toilet Trees

So today is the day. Last day in the house in Springville ::Sniff::. Well I guess that is not a real reason to cry, Thanks to Wally and Jenny for lettings us come to live in the Peterson compound again. So in our last night in Springville we decided that we could take the time to go to a movie if we had the house mostly clean. I told Caitlyn that she would have to make sure that the clothes that she had left in her room from the last two days were picked up, as well as to make sure that she had all her toiletries together. This is when she paused and looked at me very serious and said: "Toilets don't grow on trees".

Here I sit at work.

So I thought that I would throw up something on here while I had some down time at work. I am getting pretty excited as I am moving back to a day shift starting on Monday.

The day feels like it is just dragging today. I guess thats what happens when you work outside all day in the heat without enough water, but on the plus side the fence is now up around Bree's garden! I would say that I am going to add some pics on here, but we all know that I realy won;t get around to putting them up. LOL

WOOT I love New things

So my presentaion went very well. Work in general has been a little wired as of late. My position has been kind of up in the air as they are restructuring what it is that we are doing. I has been fun and challenging at the same time. So I had a friend who is the recruiter at work ask if I wanted to apply for a job in our workforce management team. This is the team that monitors the phone queues and moves people around to help cover where volume needs to be. Well after 2 weeks and a couple interviews I got the job. It looks like we are going to have to push of going to Oregon for a little while.

Long time no type.

So Here I sit thinking

"I should type something on my blog."

So I pull this up and holy crap I have put anything on here since the Tardis Pumpkin, or as I like to call it "Tarkin". So here I sit typing because I don;t want to go to bed. The reason is that I have to be to work extra early tomorrow. Those of you who know me know that I am not a morning person by an means and getting up early enough to drive to work and be there by 6a.m. just about kills me. On top of that I have a presentation that I have to present tomorrow that I am not really feeling like is in a finished state. Oh well what can you do. I
