Had a fabulous KFB. Turns out were not as old as we thought, we were able to make it past midnight both Friday AND Saturday! Crazy. Although I love my ladies and I wish I could see them more, this whole drunken weekend thing can't happen more often, lol. I, apparently, am not 19 anymore. Weird.

Work is going well, still doing a lot of training and loving it. I'm hoping this might turn into a fulltime job. I don't mind being on the phones but I really love training the new hires. If we could find a way to schedule uptraining for agents who feel they need it I think it would be a very viable option to keep us on fulltime. But we will see how it goes. I am very happy with the way things are going and take it from there.

I have also been having a lot of issues with my car the past couple of weeks. The other day my car basically exploded, oil was bad. Turns out the motor blew and we had to get a brand new one. That was a terrible carless week. Then about 3 days after I finally got Hank back the car randomly shut itself off and would not turn back on. Turns out it has some sort of emergency security system that "thought the car was being stolen" so it disconnected the engine. Thank god that only took a day to fix. Fingers crossed that's the last issue I have for a while...

I would update your on the FABULOUS week I've had, but I'm hungry, my head hurts and I'm tired...

What a terrible week

So on Tuesday my car decided it no longer wanted to run, and exploded oil all over my work parking lot. After a few frantic calls to my parents, my dad got it towed and it is now being fixed. I guess the motor or something "blew". So this week I have been frantically figuring out how I am going to get to and from work...without having to take a bus. Nothing against the bus system, I've just never been on one before and to be completly honest I'm scared of them

The week ended a little nicer though. Turns out next week I will be up training CSS, which means another week off the phones. And the new class begins January 17th, so there is another 4 weeks off the phones. I'm liking this whole training thing, I wish I could do it full time.

Back to Work

My first day back to work in 5 days was quite the pleasant surprise. My schedule has me on the phones for the next 3 weeks,but it turns out it was a scheduling error and I'm actually not back on the phones until sometime in February. This made me extreamly happy! I don't mind being on the phones, but every day I am in training I realized I love it more and more. It seems like something I could actually do for a living.

After such wonderful news at work, and having a very easy yet rewarding day Will and I settled into a glass of wine and some shitty tv for the evening. Always a satisfying way to end a day.

Damn you AE

So I'm fully convinced American Eagle has changed there pant sizes AGAIN! The pants I have been wearing, and have been falling off of me are a 4. The pants I wore to go shopping today, and are a little tight, are a 2. Both are American Eagle jeans purchased in the last year or so. Today I go in to buy pants and apparently now I am an 8 or 10. Which is fine, it's just crazy how they change the sizes in that store so much. This happened a couple of years ago and that day ended with my bawling in the change room, slamming a door, and scaring the crap out of the lovely staff at the Bayshore location.

But this was a more successful today. I managed to get 2 pairs of pants, a few shirts and a sweater. All on sale. I can finally throw out my old jeans with the gigantic hole in the crotch...when it was hot I very much enjoyed the southern breeze, but now that's it's winter I need to keep my pumpum warm.

New Year, New Blog

Another year begins and again I decide to try and maintain another blog. Let's see how long this one lasts.

We rung in the new year with movies and bubbly, a very chill evening but very pleasant. A lot has happened in the last year. I am still in the same job, with Sunmedia, but I have taken on some responsibilities as a "Learning Support Coach" which basically means I train the new hires. Will is still working at Home Outfitters but has moved to the store in Orleans. He also took on a seasonal position at LCBO for some extra cash. Fingers crossed he might be able to get in there full time, the benefits alone would be more then worth it.

In November we moved from our bird shit covered apartment in Mooneys Bay to a townhouse off Montreal rd. Technically, I suppose, it is Vanier, but it's not a sketchy neighborhood. Two bedrooms, lots more room, a basement with laundry, and a garage. It's only like $50 more then our apartment but at least double the space.

I'm quite happy with the developments of the last year, hopefully 2011 is just as good to us.
