birthday

June 5, 2009

Wednesday, June 3rd, was my 31st birthday. Dave and I went to Disneyland. We had a BLAST!

First off, I got into the park for free because it was my birthday. I immediately felt special from the moment I collected my ticket. They had a special button just for me. The woman in the booth drew my name on it and even added little mickey mouse balloons on it in different colors. Later in the day, I noticed other people with birthday buttons and they just had their names on them, nothing special like mine.

Throughout the day, many of the Disneyland employees wished me happy birthday, as well as various park guests. I was made to truly feel special.

Disneyland itself, is an impressive theme park to visit. They have their shit together! Of course, growing up in OC, I am very familiar with the park. There was a time I was going on a weekly basis but that was YEARS ago. It had been about 10 years since I last visited. It’s good to see things are just the same if not better.

The parking is just as impressive. They know how to keep the traffic flowing and in an orderly way. The entire park is CLEAN and the employees are always friendly and helpful. The only disappoinment we had was our lunch. We got burgers at one of those serve you at a window places in Tomorrow Land. They were pretty bad. Just tasted like meat that had been sitting out under heat lamps. However, dinner was MUCH better. We went to an actual restaurant in the French Quarter. Dave had clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl and I had some really good chicken with amazing mashed potatos.

It was a fantastic experience to be able to bring Dave to Disneyland for his first time. It was a lot of fun to be able to share a big part of my childhood with him. We both had a wonderful time and thank you to Disneyland for giving me a Happy Birthday.

On another note…. I am going back on my depression meds. I thought I wouldn’t need them any more considering I am unemployed and life is generally, less stressful. But I find that I am uninspired to do anything around the house and I hate that. The only thing I have been good at is getting the dog out during the day and working out. As far as getting the house cleaned and starting to organize the mess in our garage, I am failing. Don’t get me wrong, the house isn’t a disgusting mess or anything, it could just use a little wipe down in the kitchen or an extra bit of dusting. I’m just not motivated.

The garage has a lot of stuff in it…a lot of it being mine… a lot of it I am sure I can let go of now… I just need to get in there and sort it all out. *sigh* When I lost my job, I said that was the biggest thing I was going to work on. I still haven’t cracked the garage door open. *frowns*

OK.. on a brighter note, Dave got me a couple of hats while we were at Disneyland and I think I look cute in em… Here is one of em. What do you think?

happy day

June 2, 2009

Tomorrow is a special day for me. … It’s… my… Birthday! Happy Birthday to me. I am 31 as of June 3rd. Wheeee!

Dave and I are going to Disneyland to celebrate my big day. What better way to celebrate a Happy day than by celebrating it at the happiest place on Earth. It’s even better that I get in for free and Dave has never been. We are going to have so much fun.

I’ve been a very good girl. I’ve been keeping up with my Wii Active. Today was a rest day and I went to the gym for 30 minutes. Tomorrow, however, is not a rest day. Hmmm… do I skip it and not worry about it cuz I’ll be at Disneyland all day.. or do I get up early and do it first thing in the morning? Hmmm….. I’ll decide when the alarm goes off.

I heard back from my old college. The same one that was hiring for a special position. They have received my resume and are processing it. I will be hearing from them on the 9th if I am accepted for an interview on the 16th. I will be shocked if i don’t qualify for an interview.

I wish I had a little bit of Lady Gaga waiting for me on the couch when I get home from Disneyland. I’ll blow real hard on the candles tomorrow!

catching up

November 13, 2008

I’m trying to catch up…

Things have been chaotic these last 2 days. Since the lay offs, my job has gotten intense. There just isn’t much time in my day to do anything but focus on my job. Cleaning stalls has proven to be quite the challenge. Since my animals are minis… so are their feces. It makes clean up more difficult when things fall through the cleaning fork. I am still trying to find my rhythm, but for now, every minute is precious if I want to finish on time.

I miss my guys. They did a LOT for me.

Today was Dave’s birthday. I hope he had a good one. I took him out for dinner, but my big accomplishment was being able to locate a Wii Fit. Which may be a gift more for me than him. hehehehe. I also got him the new Star Wars game.

Well, that’s all for now. I am exhausted and sore… and just feel like there is so much to catch up on. I hope to get all caught up by the end of the weekend.
