Getting settled....

I am just about settled in our new office. I am busy from about 0600 hrs until quiting time at 1400 hrs. I thought getting up at 0400 hrs was going to be hard but to my surprise it has not. I go to bed much earlier than I used to and it makes all the difference. I am in bed not long after we get the evil monsters of defiance in bed. But with new changes come new ways of doing things. I now have to do all my internet playing early as shit because it is the only time of the day I can keep my door closed and not worry about who is behind me!
But enough about that lets do a quick recap of the weekend.

Friday: I had to work the midnight shift into Saturday at the old site for a fill in. It was strange being at the old site with all the computers gone. But it was also kind of cool because I was the only one there so I spent the night watching movies. I watched 28 Days Later, Batman and Hannibal. I even pick up a book I have been meaning to read, 'About Face' Its a book co-written about a Korea and Vietnam vet. A real bad ass to boot, if you like movies like Hamburger Hill and Platoon you might like this book. Warning, its a fucking huge ass book!

Saturday: I had to watch the kids because the wife had to work that morning so that meant no sleep. And as soon as she got home we went out of a barbq at a friends house. I was zonked but stayed on my feet the whole time. I am a bit pissed I did not get a picture of his bar, he has an awesome set up! They had 2 boys as well so the kids had fun running about all day, we even set off some fireworks. It is great having cops for friends!

Sunday: We went to my moms house, she had some things she got from a friend that were bar related. A huge beer mug, a Miller bar mirror and a Guinness mirror. I have all the makings of a bar, I am just missing the bar lol! Now, right before we got there we stopped at McDonald's to get some breakfast and look what we saw in the parking lot:

I wish I could have gotten a picture of the dude that owned this but he was a bit strange even for me. He was about 50 or so, had a mohawk, huge gauges in his ears and some freaky ass ink all over his face and head! Now when I say freaky I mean random crap all over the place, and rather colorful as well. I so wanted to take his picture but I was not up for the task of asking lol.

Here we have one of the monkeys getting into the toy chest my mom has for them at her house. I am not sure but I think the ghost of MJ might be floating close by HA!

After my moms we went home and did some home remodeling, we are now going to have the 2 kids in one room. I have to get a picture of this, we have bunk beds for them but I found them sleeping in the same bed this morning. How can something so freakin cute come from something so freakin evil ha. I will have to try and get a picture of that soon, before they get older and want nothing to do with each other.

Monday: I know Monday is not part of the weekend but I had to make note of it. I had a wardrobe malfunction! While in the potty at work my zipper busted, and I was wearing the boxers that were missing the front button and they are known for spontaneous games of peek a boo! Luckily my office is only one turn away from the potty so I was in my office in 2 shakes, closed the door and pulled out the emergency sewing kit. I am a jack of all trades but master of none. When dealing with a company that has to have the cheapest uniforms I have ever seen you have to be prepared for stuff like this. It isnt the first time I have had to do this lol. But I got my zipper all sewed up and was good to go, but when I got home I had to hem the other pants I had that had yet to be worn. Again, be prepared its the boyscout motto and one we should all live by. Well that and do not got swimming with bow-legged women.....dont ask its just something I have always been told not to do.....

Later that day we went out back to play, I am amazed that 4 kids can have so much fun with a single mud puddle.

I told them to say 'cheese' and Melissa was the only one who seemed to notice I was there lol. She is such a cute-pie but still just as evil as all the rest of them. There are 4 boys and one girl, well there is a baby girl in the mix too but she is still a baby. The roster of kids on any give night in the backyard is as follows:
Seth, Lucas, Matthew, Danny and Melissa. And sometimes you can find Allen and Devon but they are usually locked away mashing buttons on the PS3 and making penis jokes indoors somewhere.
I will be doing a review on a product I just bought, Forearm Forklifts.....and just a heads up, If you move furniture as much as I do, GET THEM!

OMG the picture of that station waon is nuts! looks like a serial killer drives it lol

I was just looking at a catalog that had the forearm forklifts. We could have used them this weekend. We had to lift several heavy tv's to move around and hubby ripped up the carpet in our bedroom, so lots of movie of furniture there, too. I must confess, about a month ago we had a hell of a storm and after my mom and I went out to pick up branches and ended up playing in the huge puddles in our yard. No kids around.

You are lucky no one walked in while you were sowing yourself up, that'd have looked awkward! I can't even sow and I'm a girl we're supposed to know how to do that crap. My hubby makes fun of me for my lack of ability when it comes to domestic duties.

"About Face" was a great book... I read it years ago when I was still in the Army.

Mom Taxi Julie said...

LOL good thing you had that sewing kit! I should probably get one of those for work. It's going to take me forever to remember all those little things I used to have in my desk.

That Chevy wagon.... pretty snazzy. Maybe I should do that to the ol' DeLorean. On second thought, maybe not. Nice bar paraphernalia! You need a bar for it. I'm building mine - but I don't have the stuff to dress it up. As for the sewing - whatever happened to duct tape??
