What an exciting week!
1. NASCAR IS BACK!!!!
2. If you own a TV, you have probably heard the Sprint Narwhal commercial. I cannot stop singing it.
Narwhals for life.
3. The beautiful and talented Megan made these for me.
Mountain Dew Cupcakes.
The world as I know it, is better.
I even shared!
I realize that no one is watching hockey but me, but the Dallas Stars are amazing.
I can't get enough.
Especially the fights.
Demers punches unsuspecting McLeod
Scott was playing Trivia Crack, and had his worst category, Art.
Scott: How many paintings did Van Gogh get paid for?
I knew he was playing me, so I kept my mouth shut.
Scott: It was one.
Me: But which one?
Scott: I don't know. The Mona Lisa?
Me: OMG, that was DaVinci! This is going on my blog.
How Callie sees herself:
Scenes from the workplace:
Onto pics that I thieved from people:
The next few pics I screenshotted from the Single Dad Laughing and/or Meme Cabin app. This where all of my free time goes.
I apologize, they are not all G-rated.......
El-funny-o stuff I stole from the Internet:
So we got new coffee at work.
It's too strong to serve to Guests, but that doesn't mean we can't chug it ourselves!!
It's so potent, we all get jittery.
A good chunk of my married life is:
Me: What is that noise?
Scott: I don't hear anything
Me: There! That! What was that?
Scott: Nothing. I hear nothing.
So, I am almost asleep. I hear it. It sounds like a sucking noise.
I get Scott.
Me: Tell me you hear that.
Me: Right there! What is that?
Scott: It's coming from outside the door.
Me: NO IT ISN'T!!!!
(he's blaming the dog or cat who sleep outside the bedroom door)
Me: I am telling you it's coming from near the window
I turn on the light:
Zero idea how she got in there, or how long she had been in there.
The week was going good, kind of calm. There is a new lady training for the Front Desk, so on Tuesday I was showing her how in the morning we assign rooms for all of the arrivals, paying attention to their requests and whatnot. I get almost to the end and then shout "OH MY GOD!!!", then ran to the back where Housekeeping was waiting for me, grab my phone and start calling everyone. The inspector was coming. That day.
Luckily, we were prepared and had everything in order. I was still nervous that we were going to fail, that I wasn't going to have my stuff in order, or that I had forgot something major. With our General Manager still out, and we don't currently have an Executive Housekeeper, I was so so panicky.
I ended up staying 10 or 11 hours, went home, paced, didn't really sleep, got up at 4:40am, and heckled Scott into getting up and getting ready. I triple checked everything, and then stalked the hallway cameras until I saw him coming.
We passed. With an Outstanding. Better than last year. And then I cried. True story.
Thursday I had tickets to the NSU Basketball game. I asked Bailey to go, she asked what day, time, etc, and then asked was it men or women. The ticket said men.
So I possibly was looking at the wrong ticket.
However, the game was good, they didn't win, but it was very close.
When we got there, we got in, no problem. Got to our seats, the Event Staff lady looked at us weird, then said "okay", and gestured towards our seat. There were people with their feet propped up on the back of our chairs, but I sat anyway.
Right as the game started, I told them that it felt weird, that we were too close. He looked at the stub, and we were one row down that we should've been. He just shrugged and said "it's okay."
When other people showed up, they spoke to the people behind us, that had got up and moved a row, "oh you guys moved up", and the man said real ugly-like, "yeah we had to move."
Um, a-hole. You weren't even in your seats. You were in MY seats, and your foot was in my hair.
Shut your hole.
Sit in your own seats.
And then he proceeded to scream and yell at the ref the entire game.
As a matter of fact, EVERYONE was angry and screaming. I told Bailey if they riot, just to tuck her head under my arm.
We were starving after the game, so I suggested IHOP, knowing it was open 24 hours, and I hate going into restaurants late.
It looked good, only a few cars in the parking lot. We go in, only 6 or 7 tables were occupied.
The guy that seats people asked up to wait a minute, no problem, he seats us and said our server would be there shortly.
20 minutes later, no server.
40 minutes later, we talked to the server, but still no drinks.
1 hour and 20 minutes later, we got food. Scott didn't get all he ordered.
2 hours later after waiting for the ticket, we left.
You need to most definitely download the Single Dad Laughing app.
If you ever have the chance to sleep on a Pillow-Top Mattress, I highly recommend it.
I slept like a drunk man. It was fabulous.
Saturday was a true fatty day. The closest Captain D's to us is in Leesville, about a 40 minute drive. He always gets fish, and then I go to Arby's and get Roast Beef. I wasn't really hungry when we went so we just went to Walmart and then proceeded to go through the Drive-Thru's. As we left the second food place, he said he was hungry right then, and then we went through a third place, Checkers so he could get a Big Buford. Then as we left, I decided to have the Roast Beef for lunch the next day, so we went through a fourth place, Church's Chicken, and that is what I had for dinner.
Our truck smelled NICE.
Sunday was a no good day.
I really hope this video works.
We were watching the Pelicans play, and Scott said "what WAS she doing?'"
This is why the Dallas Stars are awesome:
Millions of Americans were blindsided by a freight train full of feels while watching Super Bowl XLIX on Sunday night, as a Nationwide commercial took a tragic turn. The Dallas Stars chose to troll both Nationwide and apparently some random fan during Tuesday night's game against the Colorado Avalanche, as a teenager in the crowd bore a striking resemblance to the now-infamous "but I died" boy.
Here is the full link so I don't get sued for plagiarism.
I don't remember what I was originally searching for on my Facebook wall, but I ended up going to the very beginning. Now over half of all my statuses were gone, but there are a few left that took me back :)
I don't what is up with Mother Nature this week, but it's the second week of February and it's 80 degrees.
Mardi Gras parade from the Provencal JHS!
Now it's time for "Things I stole from the Internet"
I leave you with Shannon, and the coolest shirt in the history of shirts.
I super duper would love to get rid of this cough and congestion.
Let's see what happened this week.
Krystin is leaving Hampton for a fancy schmancy bank job.
A Facebook conversation on her leaving.
Edited, for so many reasons....
Krystin- It sucks, I can't use the excuse that we are just coworkers when you embarrass me.
Me: I can't wait! Now you have to admit you like me for MEEE!
Krystin- Ugh, my life just got worse.
Krystin- **tongue sticking out pic**
Me- Well that's going on the blog.
Krystin- NOOOOOO! Not the oh so famous blog!
Me- I have 34 subscribers, yo! I am pretty much Oprah.
Krystin- OKRA!!! LOL
I bought a new shirt, tried it on, it was a little big, but didn't feel too bad. A couple of hours into my shift it was really being a problem, it was so large and heavy it felt like a sack! I finally went all 80's and tied it to the side.
I texted Megan that I was kicking it 80's style, and she replied "RAD! If you're going all 80's, might as well speak the lingo!", so I replied, "might as well have the hair!!"
We went to Bailey's game. She and two other Seniors were acknowledged.
Excuse me while I bawl.
Friday morning, my hair....I don't even think I can explain my hair. It was so foofy!!
I Snapchatted it, sent it to most everyone. And then.....
Bailey and I went to town, was sitting at El Nopal, and Scott called to say that the truck would not crank.
Way to ruin a good day.
We ran into Walmart, grabbed the stuff I needed, then *attempted* to make a copy of house keys.
We are probably Youtube sensations now.
I then went to where Scott was broken down, he took the starter to O'Reilly's for them to tell him nothing was wrong with it.
Luckily, I had a backup plan:
It took him maybe two minutes to diagnose what was wrong (a grounded out wire? Plug?), Scott crawled under there and fixed it? Plugged it in? And then I was on my way home.
Sunday was Krystin's kinda last day at work.
I stole the idea off of Pinterest, and Ariel made the card :)
And then she left. And I cried. And she cried.
A couple of blogs I have read lately go on talking about the simple, little things that make them happy, and sometimes take for granted.
Today my good thing is the hour, sometimes two hours (depending on when I wake up, LOL) when I get to work and have quiet time. The days are so noisy, with people, and questions, and emails, and phone calls. That one hour I can just come in, do my work, and get ready for the day. Some days I have an entire day's work finished before anyone besides front desk shows up.
Sometimes that hour looks like this:
There were two things that made the Superbowl worth watching-
Tweets like these..
And Richard Sherman's face when they lost.
I only stole 3 pictures this week....
I leave you this week with me getting ready for work this morning.
Welcome to Whoville....
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
