Suh weeeet

Comfort Inn called this morning and said they have some vacation pay for me to pick up tomorrow. Cool, eh? That aughta pay for..hmm what'll that pay for? The cake server, yeah, that's what I'll buy with it. We don't really need one, I mean you can use a butterknife and fork to serve the cake, but A Buck or Two just got some in (they never sold them before) nice shiney silver ones, with swirly engraved thingies, and they just look pretty! ^_^ So, I will throw away the pocket change I'd get from the vacation money for something pretty and that we absolutely could do without. It's so great being poor, makes the little things seem so much bigger ^_^

Is only 10 DAYS away. 10 days. Did I mention the wedding's in 10 days? I'm getting super psyched and a little nervous..will we have enough to cover it? My paycheque yesterday was only half of what we'd predicted and thus budgeted for. :S They lied to me about the cutoff date. Anyways, gotta run!

Crunch Time

So, the wedding's only two weeks away!! (waaaaaaaaaah we still have SO much to do) But!! We figured out the honeymoon (the most important part, duh) We're not going to Florida, the tickets aren't here. Mom and dad aren't getting us a trip to Vancouver, we need the money instead, what with Rob getting laid off (?) or not. We'll see if he stays on or not, Tammy had some "options" for him because he's one of the really good people they don't really want to see gone. For those of you that don't know, mostly everyone got laid off for about 2 months because of ...something. Selling out, the company going under, who knows. But a couple of the higher up ppl are fighting for a couple people to stay on anyways, and Rob is one of the ones being fought for :) Makes me feel a little better. Anyways! So what we're going to do now is borrow my parents' new car (super good on gas) and drive out to Banff and Jasper, that area. We have it all mapped out, I'm so psyched!! Anyways, gotta turn the computer over, tina's here and in dire need of a working machine :P

Now that I have more time to speak atcha. I got kicked out of Christie's because Christie and Brad were moving back in, and supposedly the month of Sept wasn't in the agreement between my parents and my aunt and uncle, and the Hazlewoods had this arrangement for Lance to sleep on the futon, and that had been in place since last year, and this and that..unpleasent words, to sum it all up. But there's only 23 DAYS till the wedding YIKES we HAVE to get our butts in gear and get things finalized and paid for, but you know what? I'm poooor poor poor. But I have a better paying job now, with regular hours. The poorness is just setting in from working at the Comfort Inn, that's all. But anyways, uuh..uuh..going out to see Rob's parentals on Friday, only sucky thing is we have to be back sunday by like 4:30ish, because sunday is the (mandatory) monthly San F staff meeting. Oh well :) Speaking of work, the assistant manager handed in her two weeks notice officially yesterday! So I'm in the running for the position with three other girls, and even though I'm new, my odds are just as good as theirs! 8 How does that work? To sum it up, Erin's bubbly but going back to school (so no time) (it's weird, I met her yesterday finally..she dresses like UBER goth but she's ..bubbly, that's the only way to describe it. So happy. Freaky. Anyways.) Colleen is a doll! I love her to pieces, but she's sometimes not all there. And me, well, I seem to be all thumbs and the dumbest person on the planet you'd think, seeing how fast I seem to be learning things, but uuh..yeah. At least I havn't charged anyone 600 on their visa yet, like colleen did in her first week of work. So I guess you could say things are going good :) Worked the 1:30 - 6:30 shift yesterday, I think that's my favorite shift so far. I work 9-5 tomorrow. I don't have a key. I'm screwed lol no but uuh I've never opened up before. Jocelyn (the manager) gave me a quick runthrough, but she didn't really go detailed step-by-step or "Did you get that?" you know cuz it's all second nature to her, she could do it in my sleep. I'm sincerely hoping I don't screw it up. Anyways, I think I've typed enough for one day. Man, this is one mother of a post.

Bum bum bum

That's what I feel like, a bum. A hobo! Get your mind outta the gutter. Sheesh some people. Since I've been kicked out of Christie's place, in which I'd been living for the past two months, uuh I was informed I had one day to get out. So needless to say, I had no backup plan. So I've been sleeping on Tina and Cody's floor for the past couple nights, and today mom and dad brought in the camper for me. Aren't they nice? Oop, Rob's home for lunch, gotta run. Tell you all about work some other time!

Work work work

Notice the pattern emerging from all my most recent posts? It's taken over my life. Anyways, the interview rocked, and there was a message for me this morning, asking if I wanted the position (cuz they wanted to hire me! Whee!) so whoopee, I actually start tonight. Well, in like 3 hours. It's just a short shift tonight though, 6:30-9:30, just to get me comfortable first. So yeah! Yay go me!
