Let's begin with my weird obsession.
A while back I was on Stumble Upon and it stumbled across a website that had a continuous live feed of the Great Pyramids of Giza. It was cool, I kept stumbling. The other day I remembered it and found there are dozens of more live feed cameras around the world, including one in Times Square.
I can't stop watching this! It's the ultimate people watching experience.
Would you like to gaze upon the beach?
I realize this is a creepy addiction.
I feel like I have a bond with the guy that runs up and down the beach. I also have learned the route and schedule of the tour buses in Time Square.
Thanking the community and stuff:
I worked 7 straight days this work week.
Every day I arrived looking like this.
The weekend was good. I was off both days, ate yummy food, and hung out with the fam.
My facial expressions changed dramatically :)
There was a Lord of the Rings marathon on Saturday, and Harry Potter on Sunday.
Lily had a spectacular time this week:
Facebook was entertaining,
I found this picture of Scott from almost a year ago. I don't know why I love it so much. We were walking around in the rain, in the Garden District of New Orleans, carrying a case of Diet Mtn. Dew.
I'll never tell John "Sugar Bear" this, but he really does make my entire work day.
Some people should face swap....and some shouldn't.
She didn't even attempt to get out of my chair.
Such a hag.
I am ready for this next week!!!!!
I was corrected.
Friday was an off day!!!!!!!
You want to know what I did?
Nothing. I did nothing.
Towards the evening I went and sat with the fam.
"Sat" being the word of the day.
You know what is un-nice? When you know a chair is broken and you let your fat sister sit in it anyway.
Redacted for your safety.
As soon as I fell through, while LOL'ing my face off, I said "NOT ONE PERSON TAKE A PICTURE!!"
Naturally I have 2 versions of this, being Steven AND Scott captured the moment.
Lily had a fun time in the water and mud.
Mostly mud. That she made.
People came to my house this Saturday.
There was food.
Lily made a mess.
Love Love having them there :)
Sunday was good.
Went to church, it was good, ate lunch, delish, went to work, not so bad.
Home, NASCAR, and sleep.
Seriously, that was my whole day.
Monday was also good. Work was calm, I stayed later than usual, mingled and schmingled with the Guests.
I began watching The Age of Adaline. I didn't get very far, but I am loving it so far. It isn't my genre of film, but I was just drawn to it from the trailer.
Very soon this brown on brown will be a snazzy gray and with new furniture.
The 3 stages of my day....
Tuesday was uneventful.
Lots of Lily Snapchats.
On Wednesday all I could think about was that Thursday and Friday I am off of work!
It didn't make the day go by any faster.
My shelf came in!!!!!
Thursday we rocked Lily's world. She doesn't like change.
Rebecca let her know a day ahead of time that the following day we were going to a new "noodles" place. She said "no, old place". Still when she was going to sleep she was singsongsy "no new place, old place, no new place, old place".
So yeah. I went to pick them up, and she was still maintaining "old place". I turned right instead of left. She was so distraught that she didn't go for her Kindle right away.
But it was a success.
As for politics, I do not have an opinion. I don't care for any candidate.
This made me LOL.
Have a spectacular week.
This is a day that will most certainly not go down in the record books.
I woke up at 8:40am. I brushed my teeth, put on cotton shorts and a tank top.
I put a load of laundry on, fixed breakfast, took my medicine, and turned on the tv.
I opened my laptop, went to my Kindle app. I went to the DVR, selected one of over 200 episodes I have to watch.
Fast forward to 8:00pm. I have all the laundry washed. Some of it folded and put up.
I did the dishes. I watched hours and hours of DVR.
That is it, yo.
When Scott got home he was too tired and hot to really do anything, so we ate a quick dinner, he showered and was in bed in an hour. I watched "Sleepers" (again), and then laid in bed until 1:30am until I fell asleep.
Not really the kind of day that gets written about.
My 3-day weekend came to a halt. The servers at work crashed after a power outage.
It took so long.
I did get some Lily snuggles afterwards, so that's okay.
I decided to finally deep clean the house. I had stuff everywhere, Rebecca and Lily come over to borrow a movie, and it got so much worse trying to find it.
We never did, so they left and I kept trying to figure out what to do with all the junk I have everywhere. I found the movie, took it to her. She snapped me "of course it has scratches!!"
So I responded....
And guess who won the race?
I went to church, came home, did nothing, went back into town. The plan was simple; pick up a few things I need, go pick up dinner.
It was all going smooth, I got in the checkout line, there was only one lady ahead of me.
She split her purchase into 3 parts. She then put back a lot of it. On the second transaction she asked if she could pay with cash and card. She gave her $1. ONE dollar. While she was ringing up the third batch, I was putting my items on the belt, and there was a Lunchable sitting on the belt, and I asked her if it was hers, and she responded:
No words, just a go to hell look.
Excuse me, dude, just trying to be helpful.
My items get rang up, bagged, and I swipe my card. I can hear the people behind me complaining there aren't enough registers open. It's WAL-MART! Why are you surprised? I don't mind waiting, I like to people watch. My swiper screen just kept saying "please wait".
For like 3 minutes. The cashier looked at it and called the head cashier. She reset it with a safety pin. Nothing. People are getting more angry behind me. I smile at them. It made the dude that had his stuff on the belt start packing it up to move. I smile real big at him like this:
She could never get it working, so we had to load everything up and move to another register.
No biggie for me, it happened to us at the hotel just the day before, so I was pretty chill.
The people behind me though were real buttholes. She ignored them and I just smiled by biggest smiles.
I picked up dinner and went home. I had a bad feeling all day, I just couldn't shake it. Nothing particular, it was just weird.
Scott left for work at 5:15am so he planned on getting off early. He normally works 7-7. Around 6pm I was expecting him home, and that came and went. At 7, I always make sure my phone has signal because he calls when he gets off. Around 7:15 I figured I didn't have a good signal, so I drove up the road until it went through. I called him, and his phone went straight to voicemail like it does when it's dead. Now I am getting super worried, thinking he has broken down, his phone is dead, or being in the heat all day he has gotten sick. All of these things in my Lisa-anxiety-brain are running through my head. I was NOT driving to his job, I wasn't going to be THAT person. But yeah I did. I checked every truck I passed, looked in all of the parking lots to see if he was broken down, I drove ALL the way to his job. 28 minutes one way. And yeah. He was just working late and his phone was turned off. If he keeps it on it searches for signal for 12 hours and dies.
I just waved at the gate man, like "hey, don't mind me!!"
All was well.
I feel like a loser stalker.
I wanted to cry when he finally got home.
It passed, lol.
I knew going into this work day was going to be bad. But man...I had to apologize and hug so many coworkers because I was SO grouchy. More than usual.
I finally barricaded myself in my office so I didn't get fired or arrested.
It didn't really get any better when I got home.
Alcohol didn't help, it just made me nauseated and feel dehydrated.
I just laid around in a tshirt and complained about everything.
You wish you lived with me.
Lily has a thing.
When she doesn't want to do something it "makes her head hurt".
When she wants you to carry her, her "knee hurts".
Today she couldn't wash her hair....
I try to keep the blog PG. But ya'll. Someone not only left a vibrator behind in a room, I had to attempt to be slightly professional when the room attendant brought it to me, then had to put it in my office so 90 days from now when I am purging Lost and Found I don't run up on it. The lady calls and tells the Front Desk what she left, and kudos to Amber for handling it a lot better than I could. She explains that if she wants us to mail it back, that we use FedEx. The woman said no, she didn't want to spend that much, so she'll just buy another one. Amber told her alright, we will just throw it away.
Then woman then calls right back and gives us a credit card to mail it back. The finalized outcome?
That was the excitement for the day. The rest of the day was.....flaccid.
I'll show myself out.
I agree with you, my life has been very mundane this week.
The less drama, the better.
I am off the next two days!!!
Planning a cookout this weekend. We shall see....
That's all, folks!
At one point in this work day, I went into the bathroom, turned out the light, and just sat with my eyes closed.
We ran, we sprinted, we cleaned, we sat in front of the computer with our hands on our head...it was horrid.
Finally it all ended on a high note and I couldn't clock out fast enough.
All day long I kept thinking that I was forgetting something. I did all of the end of the month reports, taxes, Lost and Found...dealt with the ohsoveryhorrible reunion clan that was there...tried to get a toilet fixed, tried to get a light fixed.....and then it hit me as I went next door to eat dinner.
My daddy has been dead for 4 years.
I remembered it several times last week, how I need to go to the cemetery, but when the day came, I just couldn't. Instead I sat in the restaurant and boo-hoo'd.
My sister wrote a very nice status about it, so I didn't put anything.
I just want him back. Not sick. I want to sit in a room with him and not say a word. I want him to know he has a granddaughter. I want him to know that we're all doing alright.
Not much ado. Went to work, went to see the fam, Lily gave me hugs and kisses (for the first time ever), and I sat at home complaining about how hot it is inside. 78 degrees, with the a/c and fans blasting.
We drove to Leesville to pig out on Arby's and watched the NASCAR race.
AND GUESS WHO WON!!!
That's right. Brad Keselowski.
I woke up pretty sure I had dysentery. I showered. Felt worse.
Skipped church, and just laid in the chair until almost dark.
You wish you lived with me.
Happy Independence Day!!!!
also known as....
Happy Time-and-a-half Day!!!!!! She really does love me there in the background.
When I got home from work, Scott was outside grilling.
There was something in that chicken, we were both out within 30 minutes.
Lily of course stole the show.
I do believe he and I are meant to be.
My work day summed up.
I did an actual dance in the office today.....LOOK WHAT'S COMING BELOW!!!
I have never gotten political. I don't know or care enough about it to have an opinion. Some say it's my duty and it's what grown ups do. I don't care. I'd rather sit at home, in my bubble and watch Dawson's Creek.
I don't get involved in certain matters. My opinions are usually unpopular, so I keep to myself.
I don't know why a man was murdered in Baton Rouge, and I don't know why someone chose to kill cops in Dallas. What I do know is, people need to be smarter than this.
I can just pray that my family and loved ones are kept safe.
Take the perfect selfie with your BFF:
Share all of the super important information:
Take your dog for a ride:
And teach your kids right and wrong.
Give them some love.
We can only pray for next week.
I believe it will be better.
We had a night getaway in Lafayette. I have been through it a few times, but never overnight. Google Maps got us lost a lot.
It was a good trip.
We fought a lot.
I did see my first drawbridge.
I was underwhelmed, LOL
THIS BAG WAS $3!!!!
We ate lots of yummy food, drove around and looked at things, which is my favorite thing to do, and just relaxed and listened to the rain.
Someone please tell Scott that throwing deuces isn't even acceptable if you're a 12 year old girl.
Lily is a con artist.
This child. Every time we go to Natchitoches, Lily insists on eating Noo Noo, which translates to noodles, which means Lucky Village. I wasn't feeling it today, so I pulled into her second favorite place, Taco Bell. She claps and blows kisses at it normally. Not today. I pull in and she said "no, Noo Noo". I always cave, so today I stood my ground. "No we LOVE Taco Bell!!" She said no, insisted on Noo Noo. I said "you love Taco Bell!!" as I put the car in park. And then she goes, "Head hurt!" I said "Taco Bell makes your head hurt? Really". "Uh huh", she said.
Guess where we ate '_'
SnapChat is cool.
^^^^ This cracked me up. We were going walking on the track, but I didn't get the text where they were waiting for me. She was getting impatient.
The comments are always the funniest part of a post. ^^^^^
There was a lot of speculation about what this was. It was found in a room, so we put it in Lost and Found. Was is a cactus? A shark fin? Aloe?
Yeah....it was from the palm tree right outside the front door.
Every year from June to September Hilton sponsors a Catch Me at My Best contest. Guests "Catch" an employee going above and beyond. We accumulate the cards turned in, and draw for monthly winners. :) :) Holly and Marie were the winners for Front Desk and Housekeeping this June.
It is something that I do not look forward to.
July 1st, he will have been gone for 4 years.
It still hurts.
I still cry daily.
It is not getting easier.
I am still bitter and angry.
Time heals nothing.
I stole a bunch of funny pictures.
I have amazing and funny people in my life.
Some things I have no label for.
Why yes, I did buy a flamingo shirt that is Majestically Awesome.
Tony Stewart, and what could be the final win of his career.
We can't be stopped.
My lovely sister sent this to me. I believe I was around 14.
Well that is my month.
I am glad it's over.
I enjoy sports, binge watching TV, food, reading, and slightly bearded men.
