Early Christmas!

Today was a pretty good day, minus the sinus infection I woke up with! I was stuck in hell with Chief Bitch but I spent as much time as possible avoiding her. In fact, I spent all day avoiding her! I spent the day with my man, except for the few calls we had. Since we both work the next couple days and aren’t sure we’ll actually be able to see each other on Christmas we decided to do gifts today, just in case. He loved his! I was so excited! And he was so surprised!

Last year for Christmas, my man got me and Xbox, which he refers to as my “therapy” device. I used Call of Duty to suppress my anger, boy does it help! After my brother moved in with my dad I was Xboxless and last year my man fixed that for me! I was SO happy! We this year he out did himself again!! While I was hiding out with him, he gave me one gift and told me to use it right away. Since I wasn’t feeling good at all, he knew this would help me and give me something to do…

IMG_2973Ted!!!! : ) I love that movie! It’s funny, sad, and just awesome! Back when my man and I first got together I hated the fact that he couldn’t hold me all night or stay, so he got me a teddy bear to keep with me. We named him Patches. Patches goes everywhere with me!! Even work…but shhh no one knows that! So since Patches came to work and we both went to hide out with my man, then opened this gift, Patches and I watch the movie…sort of. The sinus infection knocked me out for a while. But it was great, my man held me till I fell asleep and then took really good care of me when I woke up. I got very lucky and had just two calls for my truck so avoiding the station was easy.

After we got done with the movie he was too excited for me to wait for some of my other gifts, so he had me open the next one…

IMG_2974Currently we cache with my man’s older eTrex and love it! But it’s outdated, wasn’t designed for geocaching then and just slowed down, so he got me this one!! How cool!! I’m so excited! I had been looking at them for a while, considering it, but knew the one he has was fine for us. Well, he decided that I needed my very own for any adventures I go on and I was extremely surprised about it! I can’t wait to go out and use it!! If only it would freaking warm up here!

He also got me a Kinnect for my Xbox with the Harry Potter game! : ) I was so excited for that too!! I admit…I’m the Harry Potter generation!! And was so excited to see this game come out and even more excited when he picked it out all on his own for me!! He’s great to me!!

He came home with me tonight after work to take care of me, brought me food which I was unable to eat, and rubbed my back until I was calmed down and comfortable. Got me anything I needed and just sat here with me. God I wish he could stay with me! I hated seeing him go SO bad! It hurts! We just had a wonderful little Christmas to ourselves and he has to leave. It hurts so bad.

As for Christmas…every year I make my own cards, but this year I failed miserably because I just mailed them today! Between work, work, and more work I never got a chance to finish them until Wednesday, then Thursday we were so busy I never made it to the post office!! Oh well..I just hope everyone gets them at least by the day after at the latest. Here is a preview of my cards.

Looking at this picture I realize my carpet looks like I haven’t vacuumed…ever. WTF?! I just did it right before this picture…guess I need to try again. I’m off to bed to try and recover from this infection some because my next day off is Christmas Day.

Oh, and Chief Bitch update…she refuses to talk to me, literally! I asked a question today and she ignored me!! Fucker! (Pardon my language) And she finally added me to the schedule…a whole fucking TWO days!!! I went from averaging 20 shifts a month to just TWO FUCKING shifts!!!!!! And it happened as soon as the bitch took over the fucking schedule because she just has to be in control of everything! Can I hit her?? That’s all I want for Christmas!

With Love

It has been a crazy couple days! Monday we had a major snow storm pass through with car accident after car accident, it was crazy at work. Needless to say, we were busy. Actually watched one accident happen right in front of us while taking a patient to the hospital. People do not know how to drive, it’s simple SLOW DOWN! That’s it! It’s not a big hard secret, it really is that simple.

Before that snow hit, we spent much of the morning at work just doing station duties, but not much else. On some of that down time, I spent it taking pictures I had or new pictures and messed with some editing features I had on my phone. Here are the results.

Finger Art! : )

Following a crazy Monday at work was a quiet Tuesday, Valentine’s day! If you hate Valentine’s day, I just think you haven’t celebrate it properly. I love this day! Even the years when I didn’t have someone. I used to celebrate it as “Single’s Awareness Day” but this year I had my totally awesome man to celebrate with! : ) He made my Valentine’s day GREAT! It started by waking up to his hugs, roses, and some Creme Eggs (my favorite). Then I went on my way to spend some time relaxing before a nice evening together. Got some more candy, Reeses and M&M, a nice back massage, and dinner. I got to pick dinner, it could have been anything, but I love breakfast food, so breakfast it was. Took some eggs, added chopped up spinach leaves, cooked turkey bacon, and shredded cheese, cooked it all up then put it on a whole wheat wrap and enjoyed. Simple. Easy. Yummy! : ) And of course some chocolate milk. That was my perfect Valentine’s day! : )

My roses!

Yesterday, while off during the day, I decided that I wanted to get rid of a picture in my room and put up something different. I saw a quote that gave me some inspiration. “You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” So I decided I was going to put this on canvas and hang it above my bed. So, off to Michael’s to get my supplies. Now, I HATE Martha Stewart and will avoid at ALL cost buying her crap but the woman has everything and unfortunately she was the only one that had what I needed. She had the 3 colors of blue paint I had picked out to match my room, so her paint I was stuck with. She was also the only person with sticky cut yourself stencil. I looked all over and was stuck, yet again, buying her stuff. : ( But it worked out great!
