Blogging hiatus

This will probably be my last post for a while. We're kind of going through a rough spot with money & sanity, so I'm going to be trying to focus on my marriage and myself for a little while.

If anyone actually reads my blog, hopefully you'll keep reading it when I start back up in a few months :-)

Some good news and some expensive news

Rett is finally getting to go out on the road and start doing his own closes for the appointments he sets. The person they have doing it right now is really not as good as Rett thought she would be at first, so at least now he has total control of the sale. Even better, since he'll still set his own appointments, he'll get commission for setting the appointment and for closing the sale! He starts training next week, so I'm crossing my fingers some money starts rolling in soon.

Speaking of money, we had the honor this week of parting with $400 to the local Dodge dealership. After 90,000 miles, my Durango actually needed some real work - can you believe it! lol There was apparently something wrong with the wheel bearing, that would make my front left tire pop off at any random time. Not a big deal of course, but we thought it might be worth fixing

I'm really really really x10 excited for this weekend - I have a group of girlfriends coming in for a girls weekend! We're still kind of 'new' friends, I was introduced to their chat board by my darling Jannypie in July. They're incredibly nice women and I already feel like I've known them for a heck of a lot longer than 3 months! It's going to be a great weekend

Two posts in one day?!

I know I already posted something today, but I just have to share this story. It's from the Pioneer Woman blog and it's a story about her brother - click here. This is one of the sweetest stories I've ever read; I seriously started crying at work while reading it.

Sometimes we just need to take a moment and think about those less fortunate. Helping them will make our own lives better then we could ever imagine.

The end of sanity is near

***warning -- extremely whiny post!*** :-)

Past experience has shown me that I can only handle working 2 jobs (like I am now) for about 5-6 months. I've been at Avenue since the end of April and I'm definitely at the edge of losing my sanity. Working at Ohio State Univ. Medical Center 40 hours a week and then Avenue 15-20 hours a week creates a messy house and a stressed marriage.

Rett's still working his sales job, but there haven't been any closed deals in about 3 weeks, which means no money for us. The person who does the meetings (Rett's job is just to set up the meetings) keeps telling him that she "thinks so and so will close" but then it doesn't happen. "Thinking" a sale will close doesn't pay our rent :-(

Hopefully the sales will start picking up or he can find another job, because I'm past ready to quit Avenue and only work 40 hours a week.

AAAAHHHHHHH! Brad Pitt!!!!!!

That's right! My boyfriend, Brad Pitt, is in a new movie!!!! I'm definitely going to have to convince Rett to take me on a movie date this weekend. It's called Burn After Reading and it looks really funny.

I've loved Brad ever since Interview with a Vampire.....

Legends of the Fall....

(apparently I like long hair Brad)

Fight Club....

Ocean's 11, 12 & 13 - he's got cute friends in these, too.

and we all know that's just a few of them

And, I love how he and Angelina adopt kids from poorer countries, it's such a good thing to do. They're so generous with so many causes. Even though it started out as a relationship breaking up a marriage - they're still good in my book since they do so much more that other Hollywood people to help out others.

Alright, that's enough gushing. I'll shut up now. I'm just gonna drool over Brad by myself

Friday took way too long

Explain this to me -- how is it that short weeks feel longer then regular weeks? It's only a 4 day week but it's been sooooooo long! When I woke up yesterday I could have sworn it was Friday :-( All I have to say today is --

Have a great weekend, everyone!!!

not tonight, i have a headache.

Tell me why, if I'm so excited to try to get pregnant, am I afraid to actually do the deed to get started? I'm fully aware that it's not "gee, let's have a baby! okay, we're pregnant!" but I can't help but be nervous about getting pregnant the first month of trying and feeling totally unprepared. It would be a blessing, of course, but geez that makes me nervous!

Speaking of headaches, I'm finally going to the doctor tomorrow. I've had a headache pretty much every day for about 10 days now. I think it's a combo of TMJ, stress and lack of sleep, so I'm hoping to get something to help with at least one of those and get rid of these @&($@! headaches.
