Watch Good Morning America...

tomorrow morning between 7am-9am. Kat's interview regarding her own ordeal with a cyber stalker that has made numerous threats against her and her family for several years will be airing. Along with the ordeal that Kathy Sierra has had to deal with. Kat is my friend and this is disgusting what she has had to endure with this loser. But, like I told her... she is a very brave and courageous woman and I am extremely proud that she is speaking up so that bloggers everywhere, men and women will know that this is definitely a real threat and it needs to be taken seriously.

What shocks me the most is that our local county police department treated it as if it was no big deal. That is truly shameful on Sarasota Police Department. What ever happened to "WE SERVE TO PROTECT"?

Ear Infections Suck

I have been out for the count for quite some time dealing with "Swimmers Ear". This infection kicked my ass. Not only am I taking two antibiotics but also a heavy pain killer. Ok I won't complain about that one;) I am feeling much better and I hope to be back to my normal self in no time. Hopefully I can continue to keep adding to Regalo Boutique and keep up with my posts;)

No.. I have not fallen off the face of the Earth...

I have just been extremely busy and very much exhausted. Things at work are changing.... not necessarily for the better. My hours have changed which has thrown me off a little. More responsibilities and duties but no raise yet. I was technically due for a raise last August but was told that I would get it in October/November and that it would be retroactive. Hello.. It's April people when do I get my stinking money ::throws temper tantrum:: Seriously, I know the company has suffered a really slow busy season compared to years past but all these stupid changes are pissing me off. I keep hearing how "valuable" I am, no more saying it people... prove it! Ok, ranting over.

Regalo Boutique is coming along steadily... I have quit working on it for hours on end... I am not getting any sleep doing two jobs... So for the time being I will post more products on Friday nights and Saturday afternoons. I do not want my family to suffer... Laundry doesn't clean itself/ nor does anything else around here. Chris tells me to get the kids involved and I just look at him with this blank stare and think to myself "hmm.... yeah about that hon... are your legs and hands broken?" Of course I don't have to say a word because the next thing out of his mouth is "Don't tell me I don't do anything around here!" Damn I wear my thoughts on my sleeve...haha...

Bentley and Reese are growing like weeds. Damnest cutest puppies ever... Scooter is adjusting well to them. She will put them in their place if they annoy the hell out of her, which at her age is about every hour. haha...

Well... I have tons to say but it's now past my bedtime and if I don't get my rest well....lets just say I am a bit;) grumpy in the morning....

Tips to share with your boss;)

1. Never give me work in the morning. Always wait until 4:00pm and then bring it to me. The challenge of a deadline is refreshing.
2. If it's really a "rush job", run in and interrupt me every 10 minutes to inquire how it's going. That helps. Or even better, hover behind me, advising me at every keystroke.
3. Always leave without telling anyone where you're going. It gives me a chance to be creative when someone asks where you are.
4. Wait until my yearly review and THEN tell me what my goals SHOULD have been. Give me a mediocre performance rating with a cost of living increase. I'm not here for the money anyway.
5. If you give me more than one job to do, don't tell me which is the priority. I like being a psychic.
6. Do your best to keep me late. I adore this office and really have nowhere to go or anything to do. I have no life beyond work.
7. If a job I do pleases you, keep it a secret. If that gets out, it could mean a promotion.
8. If you don't like my work, tell everyone. I like my name to be popular in conversations. I was born to be whipped.
9. If you have special instructions for a job, don't write them down. In fact, save them until the job is almost done. No use confusing me with useful information.
10. Never introduce me to the people you're with. I have no right to know anything. In the corporate food chain, I am plankton. When you refer to them later, my shrewd deductions will identify them.
11. Tell me all your little problems. No one else has any and it's nice to know someone is less fortunate. I especially like the story about having to pay so much taxes on the bonus check you received for being such a good manager.

Obsession Tag

Obsession Tag.

The rules are to list five things that are my obsessions, then tag five other people and challenge them to do the same. Kat tagged me for this one.

1. My family
2. Playing the flute
3. Reading anything by Dean Koontz;)
4. My dogs
5. Chocolate

I only know a handful of bloggers to tag and most of them were already tagged so I will leave this invitation open to anyone who reads this and would like to do this. Have fun and post a comment if you have done it so I can visit and read your obsessions:)

Been gone too long!

The sale at Regalo Boutique officially started on March 25th. I have been adding more items here and there but for the most part the sale items are all on there. I have several more categories to install on the site yet but I am working on it.
Unfortunately, my blog has suffered:( I can truly say I missed blogging. I have become addicted to it as I have always been to reading novels. It's become my escape. I will do my best to post every night after I finish adding more products to my site.
Please, if you haven't done so, go check out the amazing new items and BUY something. haha.....
