Happy Frickin Birthday!

I turn 32 today. I'm fine with my age. In fact I like being older. You're smarter, wiser and more comfortable with yourself. I wouldn't go back to redo anything. The decisions we have made make us who we are today. I kind of like me!

So why does today suck, you ask? Because for the last week it feels like I'm falling apart. 1st and for most, I need glasses. I'm nearsighted and I'll need them for driving and such. awesome. I pulled my groin muscle.......NAPPING!!! Laid down all was well woke up my groin hurt. (insert jokes here) I have a few other issues I won't get into with ya'll but I feel like I'm falling apart.

On a happier note, I was offered the job of Manager! And I took it. It's official, I'm the boss!

Terry and I "hiked" the other day. It was a paved trail so I don't feel like hike is the right word but whatever. It was about a 5 mile round trip trail and at the turn around point you can see Snoqualmie Falls in the distance.

Here are two shots of the falls (up close) from last Fall & Spring.

I'm off to my pitty party. Later!

Managers, Flowers & Mountains

I've been "manager" for about a month now and I have to say, I like it! I have more to do, it passes the time quite nicely. I pretty good at it, too. Well, I'm still not officially the manager yet. Something that makes me crazy about Michelle, my boss, is that there is no grey area. I have no problem working Sat. I've said it a hundred times. However at the present time with the staff that I have I CAN NOT work them. I have no one to work days during the week. I don't know how many different ways I can say that. Truth be told I want to work Sat. I miss working with people. I'm all by myself through out the week. I get lonely. She said to me today "You really need to start working Sat. if you want the manager job." Okay fine I'll just leave the store unattended on Mondays! No problem.

I can't remember the last time Terry got me flowers. So imagine my surprise when I came home on Friday (Valentine's Eve) and there were 2 cards (he couldn't decide on just 1) and flowers! I only got him one card. I'm a terrible wife! Yeah right.

I haven't gotten out much lately but rest assure I will be getting out as soon as the weather breaks. I just bought me some hiking pants & shoes. And Terry is stockin' up on hiking shirts and underwear. Trust me that kind of stuff is a good idea. Any how here are a few pics for you viewing pleasure.

The Cascades

A better shot of Mt. Baker.

My dream hovel and The Olympic Mountains.

OOoooo pretty.....

Ok it looks like my blog will have to suffer slightly due to my new title at work. I get home at night and I have no desire to sit and type for an hour so it looks like this will be a weekend thing. Sorry to all my dedicated fans! Any how work is going well (so far) I'm still not officially the manager yet but the DM assured me that I had nothing to worry about. She did come to the studio and do manager-type things with me the other day. We'll see.

Terry is also working his behind off at work. He worked 53 hours last week. That's not even counting Sat. He's so pooped. Poor guy.

Needless to say we have done nothing fun in two weeks but I do have a few pics for you. 2 Sundays ago we went to Seattle to take a few pics from a spot with a great view of the skyline. We also ate a this restaurant called Beth's Cafe that I saw on a TV show before we moved here. The place is a dive and I loved it. If you want to see it there's a show on the Travel Channel called Man Vs. Food that will be showcasing Beth's (the serve a 12 egg omelet).

It the pictures above you can see both of the volcano's we can see when the sky is clear. Mt Rainier (top) & Mt Baker.

Last weekend we went and saw Ice Racing (motorcycles on ice). It was alright. The most exciting part was the little guy it front in the above picture. He's 4 years old!! Holy crap was he cute.

Until next time......
