Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 209

This was a great week. It was a short work week. That always makes for a great week. Would have been even better if I could have gone somewhere for the long weekend. Oh well. At least I still did some fun things and was productive. I felt like I was super productive actually. All weekend I stayed up late going through my storage closet and everything in my basement room. I got rid of a bunch of crap. Big DI pile and a trash pile. Feels so good to de-junk. Other people might not be able to tell as much, but to me... my basement is the most organized and clean and clear as it has ever been. It is actually a place a I want to hang out now.... and I have been. Now I just need to find a way to make the furniture down there more comfortable for me and everyone else that comes down to hang out. I will think on that one.

It has been a sporting event week for me. John invited me to his soccer game on Monday, so I went to see him play with his new team at a new location. Better set up for indoor soccer first of all. Second, this team is tons better (even though they still lost). It was fun. Tonight I also went to a BYU Basketball game. It was a big game and it was so fun. I will write more about that in another post.

Monday I went to a President's day party. People are so creative about their parties around here. You know me... I love a good theme party.

My computer at work has been SOOOOOOO Slow all week. It has been busy to so it has really been trying my patience. Seriously... I feel like I'm waiting for dial up or something. It's not cool. I get so frustrated at it just shutting down programs that I'm using and taking a million years to do anything. A lot of times I just have to take a walk. Supposedly I have one of the good computers too. Sad that I work for a software company that doesn't have better technology.

I got my cavities filled on Wednesday. I always forget how expensive dental work is... even with insurance. Also I always forget how long you feel uncomfortable after the dental work. They numb the crap out of your mouth, it takes them 10 minutes to do the fillings and then your mouth is numb for the next 4 or so hours. Meanwhile... eating and drinking gets real interesting...

I had dinner with Meg on Tuesday since she was down in Provo. So glad we have both made the effort to stay in touch and hang out even after she moved and got married. She is a good friend and I'm happy to have her in my life. We had a great time chatting as we always do. I can't believe we didn't get a picture! What were we thinking? Geez!

We had Stake Conference on Sunday. I thought it was great. My favorite President Sandburg spoke on putting everything into perspective of why we do everything we do in the church... having a understanding and testimony of the plan. President Heaton talked about coming back to church.... even brought up a couple of people that had left the church and came back and had a question answer thing in front of everyone. I thought it was different but cool. I like church.

Did I also mention on my day off on Monday I went on a hike with some friends (blog post to come) and we went to this food truck called "Eggrollin" which is Filipino food... which I had never tried, but I really liked! I love trying new places around town.

I have had some heart to hearts lately with friends who are going through a hard time. Either with their family or themselves... It made me realize that I need to be a better friend and reach out to other people that are struggling. It also made me realize that my struggles are not as bad as I think they are. Not that they are not valid... because they are, and it's ok to feel sad about them, but I'm glad that I find so many things and people that make me happy. Not everyone does that or knows how to do that. I'm thankful that I am a happy person because it makes getting through life easier and more fun. Hopefully I can help these couple of girls that I have talked to get there too. There is so much in life to be happy about.

When I was trying to shop around for a new nightstand and failing big time... I saw this car, so I parked next to it. ONLY parked next to is because it looked like this. It made me smile.

Ghostbusters! Now I want to paint out car like that. ;)

I'm glad you are a happy person too. That is a huge blessing in life.

Eggrollin' sounds amazing. Wish I was eating it.

I still need to make an appointment to get my cavity filled. Yay. Thanks for the reminder.

If I were you with the slow work computer, I would throw it out of the window. I seriously cannot handle that crap. I'm normally super patient, like when children are crying and screaming for no reason into my face. But for doe reason, internet slowness makes me want to hit things.
