Making Monday Friday

The week has brought many reasons to be grateful. One item that kept entering my mind was something that I didn't expect to find its way to my heart as something to be thankful for. During this last week I have thought about how lucky I am to have a job in this time where many others may not. I am grateful that I am able to work and enjoy the experiences that it brings. I may not enjoy every experience of angry clients but the growth it provides me within my professional life has been something to be grateful for. It may sound cheesy or just like pure fluff, but lets be honest I need to be grateful for anything that can help me get my student loans paid off! Speaking of which I am willing to wash your windows for payments on my student loan.... Not only am I glad that I have a paycheck but I am also grateful for the people I work with. I have never had a job where I enjoy being around the people as much as I do now. There may be moments throughout the day where I may think I want to strangle the person sitting next to me with my phone cord or that I wish I could see the person I was talking to so I could smack them in the face with my keyboard, but who doesn't occasionally experience the case of the Mondays. It is a matter of turning these situations around and making it a better experience for yourself. Everyone has ups and downs but only you have the power to control your attitude. With the arrival of a new year it is my goal to turn every case of the Mondays into a Friday.

Tis the Season

I have decided to start writing on a weekly basis about the things that I am grateful for. David Steindl Rast said, "Gratefulness is the key to a happy life that we hold in our hands, because if we are not grateful, then no matter how much we have we will not be happy -- because we will always want to have something else or something more." It is because of this I have decided to open up my eyes and try and notice the things I am greatful for each day.

During this season it is easy to get caught up in the busy holiday mess and ignore many of those who are dear to us. I feel that I often do this not just during the holiday season, but in my every day life. This is definately something I need to work on.

I have taken advantage of the fact that I grew up in a loving home. As a family we weren't the kissy huggy type but, we always knew that we were loved by parents who were willing to do anything for the happiness for their children. I can't begin to think of all the sacrifices they made to make our lives more comfortable. They were always there to help us in times of need and be a stronghold when issues arose. Their examples to me have been a strength in my life and I am truly grateful for that.

I have a great family with siblings who are so caring. The constant reminders of love and support have helped me throughout my life. I remember as kids the constant notes that were left on pillows and the chances to play with older siblings and their friends. I appreciate all that they do for me and for their help throughout my life.

I am greatful for this season because it allows a chance to be with them.

If the world was made of kisses it would be a better place

Help Wanted

YES this was actually e-mailed by my school. Thank you Westminster! (My commentary is the highlighted stuff.)

Help Wanted for Spring Semester! (well so far good start right…?)

We're looking for a Sitter/Nanny for our 3 year-old boy who is obsessed with diggers, scorpions (not real ones) (wheeewww thanks for the information, what is this a blind date service, oh but wait it just gets better )

and gloves (especially blue latex ones like doctors and TSA agents wear).(Buahhh ha ha ha ha ha is this for real. Latex gloves?? Did they just put that down? Okay I am sorry but if my kid enjoyed gloves I am sorry I am not writing it in my want ad to baby-sit him, maybe to put him up for adoption but not a sitting ad. You don’t need a sitter you need a doctor)

He's your average 3 year-old: jumps around, makes a mess, then jumps around again (yes I feel more relaxed by you writing he jumps around twice in the same sentence. As if being obsessed with gloves wasn't enough please try and entice me by telling me that he has a.d.h.d. While your at the doctors stealing gloves please steal some riddilin and then fill out the want ad.).

He loves books, playing outside, and trying to figure out how to convince you to give him something sweet for a snack. (Okay 2 questions for you. A.) is he a diabetic? and B.) What were you on when you thought this would make someone want to sit your child?)

We're looking for someone who wants to hang out with a little kid and (Yes I do need someone to go clubbing with thanks for the consideration)
play on Monday and Wednesday afternoons (2:00pm to 5:30pm) and then
any 3-hour time slot on Fridays. You'll need a car, or be willing to
take the bus to bring him home from his daycare (have you met the people who ride the bus….. are you sure about that? Oh wait your probably one of the people I have met on the bus)

at the U on M/W (we live just three blocks from Westminster). We'll pay you $10.00/hour. (woohooo thanks)

Brining Back the sexy 70's

mmmm.... look at that yummy chest hair...

Well it is official short shorts on men and gobs of chest hair that women can get their fingers stuck in has been brought back. You can thank me and my style sense. I know what women want and its their man in some spandex shorts and enough chest hair for them to find in their food when you cook with out a hair net covering it. After Aubrey's birthday party at Classic Skating I decided that this will be how I dress from now on. So feast your eyes on some man candy till I come to your town.

Taking a stroll down the block

Love peace and Serendipity

The Many Faces of Spencer

After having many people not recognize me from my past I decided to take a look at some of my past pictures and see if I really have changed that much... So take a look and tell me what you think...

Our Trip to Cedar City

Well it all started with us squeezing into the rent-a-clown car which happened to be a PT cruizer, man did we look sexy! 5 hours of a luxurious ride later we arrived in Cedar where Eileen, Beevie and I went to the Shakespeare festival and shopped a bit. One of the more luxurious hotels we have stayed in, this time no leaking sinks, flooding toliets or burnt hotel rooms. It ended up being great fun and just the form of relaxation we were looking for.

we think we're cool
