I have not posted much lately........ not been in a posting mood. I have been doing LOTS of reading. I'm on my 7th book in 3 weeks I think. These aren't baby books either. One was 700 something pages. I guess that has become my escape. A vacation for my brain. Lee looks at me like I'm insane when I'm laying on the couch reading. It beats watching the stupid crap that's on TV. Soaps, reality shows, that's pretty much what's taking over the tv. I even made it healthy.......I read and do crunches and stuff on my big green workout ball.......lol. If only I could read about working out and it really give me a workout.
Friday afternoon after service, Dave and Emily came over and went with us to Pontotoc. We went to Ride horses with Tyler Johnson, who I might add has grown up so much!!!!!. 21 years old now!IT had been stormy off and on that afternoon. In fact there were severe storm warnings on the radio while we were headed up there. The rain stopped and it cleared up not long after we got all the horses saddled up. There were only 4 horses, so I didn't ride. I just hung out with Kara and Ellis, her almost 2 year old son. WEll, after they all got done riding Lee wanted to take Dave and Emily to see Kara and Tyler's old tree house. It was at the house which was about a 3 minute drive away. So we all loaded up and started driving over there. About the time we got to Tyler's we noticed the wind REALLY picked up. REALLY picked up. OH well, it must be something blowing over, we thought. So we walked out to the back of the pasture to where the big ole treehouse was. It started to sprinkle. Wind still howling............ Tyler climbs up there to swing on the swing- a VERY scarey swing that feels about like bungy jumping....lol. He did it once and the rain stared POURING LIghting came.....................so we ran down the fence line under the edge of the trees to get back to our car. As we were running I could barley hear this whining noise over the wind and rain........I was yelling " what is that noise?" I thought it must have been maybe an 18 wheeler on the highway.......... Anyway, we got back to Kara's house and a big tree had blown over in that 10 minutes we were gone. We ran in the house. Kara said: did you hear the tornado sirens going off????? HA! that's what that was! Not a semi. So ya, we were out in a pasture playing in a tree house while the tornado sirens were going off.......lol. WE stayed indoors for the rest of the evening. WE bought a bunch of 5 dollar dominos pizzas and played several rounds of PIT. Pretty fun night.
Saturday, Lee and I went to see the Star Treck movie. It was very good. It was better than I thought it was going to be. I also went to Ross and found a new skirt and a dress. I looked in a few stores for new purse too............I CAN'T find one! I guess I'm going to carry this annoying floppy one forever!
That's pretty much the weekend in a nutshell........I worked some overtime last night..... I found 3 or 4 clinic jobs posted on our intranet at work. So I'm trying to decide what to do...if that's what I want or not. I just hate the whole 5 day, 40 hour work week idea! 8 - 5. 2 stinking days off a week! I don't want to work full time! BUT it is daytime, and even though I'd rather not work 5 days a week. I think I would be LESS unhappy. I probably wouldn't be content, but just LESS unhappy. So what do I do? I only have to stay 6 months. Anytime we transfer we have to stay 6 months before we transfer out. These clinics are in our NMMC system, so all my vacation and PTO and sick time accrual will transfer right over. Decisions decisions.................
