ooh...If you got a sales/marketing job at the casino, I bet you could get all sorts of great comps and show tickets and things!!
The one here in Niagara Falls always has fun entertainment.
Good Luck!

OMG the casino was so fun, I won $110 and won $315, OMG we had so much fun I was worried about the smoking, like being around people but they had a smoking section and I didnt see one person smoking it is very small so easy for nan to get around she got this new fancy walker and she plows me over, OMG! And the thing weighs a ton, it has a seat for if she gets tired, she was much faster with it!

So good news too the recruiter got back to me, the HR gal at the electrical place was out unexpectedly last week, they wanted me to fill out an OAD survey so that is a good sign, as much as I loathe going back to that it is probably good $, and this company in particular is employee owned! They have a fitness center on their videos! I am liking that! So I am really keeping my fingers crossed!

I got back my resume from the service, WOW I love it, I have a few minor revisions, but girls what do you think she made a block at the top of all business dev/sales like highlights then goes into my work history I liked that!

Oh yeah so I got punished for our wins, I wanted to say Nan won $315 I was so excited and the area we we won in had servers that were young hot sexy men, go figure finally!!

So last night around 1:00 am I woke up totally soaked in sweat like dripping my stomach hurt so bad, ran to the bathroom both ends, OMG I felt terrible, and puking with these repaired muscles, I was dying, same thing that happended New Years Day night when I passed out too and broke the scale, so I had to wake up Tony, I laid there just like profusely sweating, and then I fell asleep and that was it, I feel OK this morning except for my stomach which hurts, I am afraid to eat or drink anything, ughghghg

The other thing that happened was driving down to the casino we heard like this loud gunshot and I thought a water bottle or something exploded, and I felt like something hit my neck and I saw little flecks of stuff in the car since it is black. Well turns out a huge rock must have hit the windshield at the very top of the window it is huge and it shattered the glass that pieces flew in so this is no plug the hole thing a whole new windshield so now today I have to call for that. I hope insurance covers all that. Always something I swear it was so strange how this thing was up so high like where the tinted part is that we couldn't see it, Tony was like holy crap that was a boulder that must have hit you, ughghghg

Hope you feel better today. Take it easy - I know, easy to say and hard to do!

Woo hoo!!! on the job and resume. Looks like things will start falling into place for you very soon.

Hope you are feeling better this morning. I hate when I wake up out of me sleep sick.

WOw, scary stuff. What made you sick? Poor thing. That is no fun at all. Then for the windshield to shatter, Yikes. Be careful today, who knows what will happen.

Any Cardio fusion classes today?

Amber, you might want to think about seeing a gastroenterologist just to make sure everything is okay. I have ulcerative colitis, which is in remission, but it started with nausea, fevers and diarrhea that would come on me during the night and I would be so weak I couldn't get up off the floor. I'm sure it's nothing, but you should just talk to someone anyway since this happened twice.

Amber sounds like you ate something that didnt agree with you... think back the 24 hours prior.

In KY if someone has comprehensive ALL front windows are covered 100% no deductable.

Have a better day & a great weekend

Yikes @ the rock. Glad you guys are ok and I also reckon insurance will cover it. Ug at the tummy sick. Glad you are feeling a bit better and take it easy chicka.

The resume sounds good. That is how they are doing them these days for those with strong experience in one field and much accomplishments. Nightmares of things to write, but they look really great. Employee owned company with a gym? Sounds pretty ok. I have faith the right thing will come so no worries.

I want to encourage you again, I sound like a broken record...to pursue your dream! Get your personal trainer license or nutritional consultant certification!!! Do it!!!! You would be AWESOME and such an inspiration to your clients. I bet you would be busier than a one armed paper hanger! Muah!

The main thing holding me back is spending the money the nutrition thing is like $8K, and the personal training is 3K, so now with no job I hate to spend that money!

Mom took us all to the seafood place last night, all lovely except for the freaking hot sticky buns that come in the bread bowl, LOL I ate them, not one but 2! Ughghg, but it was yummy, I gotta decide what I am getting strict with and starting Monday I am doing it I have been way to lax I feel bloated the scale is up, time to reign it in.

I am going to spinning this morning, have not done that in ages since we were going to the hot yoga on Saturday mornings, so it will be fun, I saw the one lady at the gym adn she was like come we miss you so that should be good.

So Tony had to return the recalled cat food to Costco and he came home with a Mother's Day gift for me, all 3 seasons boxed set, Wonder Woman!!!! So now I will make Bobby watch all 51 episodes with me, LOL

Baseball game tonight, other than that not too much going on. I want to go to this cheap produce stand I found they are only open on Sat and Sun but way cheaper!!!

What are all the Mommies doing this weekend!!!

Well I'm glad I found your new journal. The link that you posted in the old journal didn't work and then a few days went by and I realized that you probably started another journal somewhere so I had to try and track you down by following your posts like I was some crazy stalker or something

Yes I had to make a new post, long story, but anyways!

Happy Mother's Day to all Mom's!!


Robert had a baseball game last night, and at the end of the second inning they called all us Mom's on the field and read this beautiful story about the bond between Moms and sons and then our kids gave us a flower!! It was so touching!!!I was bawling like a crazy person and they won 12-0 they were so excited!!!

Anxious to go be with all the kids and family today it is suppose to be gorgeous outside, so should be a fun day!

I hope all you Mom's have a great day!!!!

Today is going to be a carb feast and tomorrow I am getting strict, strict like crazy the scale is going up and up, I feel like a balloon, and something is going to give here, so stay tuned!
