I have been pretty damn busy with just about everything lately. This is why I have had a really hard time blogging lately.
Mainly I have been damn busy with work. It seems its pretty much all I do these days. But I am not complaning. I knew it was going to be busy towards the end of the year. I haven’t been getting overly stressed out like I have in the past. Just soo busy I don’t know what to do next.
Every once in a while I do force myself to break away from it all and go to a movie or something. I have come to relize the full extent of how small of a town and how redneck they seem to be. Two of the movies I really wanted to see this winter came out in early December, RENT and Pride & Prejudice. I wasn’t able to watch either of them when the first came out because neither would be coming to Vernal. It doesn’t suprise me that RENT didn’t come since its a broadway play about Aids, Gay’s, and Drug use. I was however suprised that Pride & Prejudice didn’t come here. Instead they insisted on getting and keeping movies in the theatres that I perticularily didn’t care to see. I did end up watching Harry Potter three times and eventually went and saw RENT and Pride & Prejudice in SLC when I picked up my friend Robbie from the airport. He is out here visiting me now and is going to stay a full week. It is quite the change from his sunny surroundings of Phoenix, AZ. But, I am glad that he is out here. I haven’t been able to spend as much time as I would like to since we have gotten back in Vernal, but, I told him that I would be busy with work if he came out. Yesterday I was at work till 10 PM and he ended up hanging out with my mom and my neices. I wish I could have been there to see it. They say he did really good with the kids, which is very nice to see. Some of the past people I have dated wanted nothing to do with kids. I just hope I can spend some more time with him later on this week and make up for the first part of it. It has been enjoyable having him around though and I hope he is finding a way to make it bearable out here.
I was able to finally attend a Microsoft Conference in Denver the first part of December. It was really enjoyable and I did learn alot. But while gone my work load got even more piled up then before. Now I am just trying to manage my time so I can peek over the top of the pile. Maybe one of these days I will get a little caught up.
I sit here now and its 2 PM and I still haven’t gone to lunch. Just waiting for something to finish uploading so I can get back to work.
I got to go snowboarding the day before Thanksgiving in Steamboat Colorado with my Brother, Lil Sister, Nephew, and some friends. It was pretty fun except the Ice was sooo damn snow packed that it hurt like hell when I would fall. And that was pretty damn often. Chase ended up taking lessons and he loved that. At least this time I didn’t get a concussion though.
My dad came to visit us in Late November and we had dinner and played the family card game of Smut. Its basically a card game where the first one out gets to put makeup or something else dirty all over the looser’s face. By the end of the night only one person didn’t have it all over their face. But this was mainly due to the fact that the kids were haivng too much fun painting eachother’s faces that even people that wern’t loosers got it. I’ll attatch some photos from that night and any other interesing ones that have came up since my last post.
But my file is done uploading now so I better get back to work 😉
