long week

They're becoming an obsession.

This is what happens when you are stuck behind a desk all day and don't want to work. You start feeling like your in 5th grade all over again, thank you 'paint' for making my time go by faster at work this week.

Happy Friday! I'm so happy the weekend is finally here. This has been a LONG week for me. I don't remember anything that happened Monday day. Monday night John and I broke up, Kandis and I went running and I sprained my ankle, and then we watched project runway. I don't think I slept very well at all that night. Tuesday is a blur. Tuesday night I took Weston shopping and out to dinner as a belated birthday celebration, gift thing. I also bought a new purse and 2 pair of shoes, I'm proud to say that I put down the darling $150. pair of kate spade shoes from the clearance rack. Thank you, thank you very much. Wednesday was good. Work was crazy busy. I was able to create and put together 50 slide powerpoint presentation for the vice president in an hour! Managed to fix the computer issue in the conference room minutes before an important meeting (completely different meeting from the one they were using the powerpoint for), and got a ton of other things done too. I had lunch with John. We met at Islands and had a nice chat. I feel so much better since we talked. He is so wonderful and I can't even begin to tell you how much he has blessed me and my life. Wednesday night I was feeling good, back to happy bubbly Amber. I went to walmart to get a couple of things and ended up buying fish stuff, then went over to petsmart and bought TWO fish. I couldn't help it, I fell in love with both. I went back to Walmart and found two pretty glass vases (or something like that) in the craft section. Perfect for my pretty fish. Today, Thursday was not bad. Work was slow, I really didn't want to be there and apparently neither did anyone else. My boss called in "sick" and a lot of people were out of the office for a good part of the morning. I did what needed to get done and then Kia came up to my desk and we played games on her new itouch ipod and we talked for a good 2 hours. While we were talking and she was playing games I was doodling on the paint program on the computer. LONG day, but the good news is that we had gorgeous weather and I got to enjoy it for about 40 minutes.

Alright I'm getting off the computer to have an amazing weekend, starting NOW.

Woohoo for the weekend!

Are you kidding me!?!

I kind of hate facebook and GUYS right now. TWO minuets after I change my status on facebook to 'single' I start getting text messages and instant messages from random guys. Dumb A** guys just randomly thinking about me, asking DUMB questions and trying to pretend that they have no idea that I'm suddenly single. UGH. These aren't kind of guys that ask how I'm doing because the genuinely care, these are the kind of guys that see an opportunity to get in, thinking I'm down. Sorry boys its NOT working, find someone else, thanks come again.
Let me just say this again...John was a breath of fresh air! *big sigh*
I'm going to have fun with this single business, and I think the guys are going to hate me! I'm a little excited. I'm tired of going out on pointless dates with boys that I don't ever see myself with (John was not one of those guys), so I've decided to have a checklist of questions to ask BEFORE going out with them. Brilliant! OK but I need help with my questions list. (I'm ridiculous, I know) Basically I don't want to date anyone who is not temple worthy and doesn't have a recommend. This is going to be fun. In the mean time I'm going to continue to do what I do and be happy living my life.
What are your suggestions? I need to have something like this in place otherwise when I get asked out and its someone I don't really want to go out with I'll end up going anyway. Oh, and that's another thing why is it that when you say NO to a guy in their head that means yes!? What the heck? I hate how when I'm flat out honest and even rude sometimes its like a turn on and then they don't give up. Anyway, I'm done venting for the night. Help me weed em out.

Meet, Red. He lives in a bowl on my desk at Syska Hennessy Group, and keeps me company. A few weeks ago I had a random thought to get a fish, not sure where it came from, but I took a 20 minute break and came back with a fish. I named him Red, because he is red.
