Snowed in and miserable

I really hate that I'm not home tonight. Last night I went to mom's bars that she hung out at and worked at. I cried with strangers and it was very good for me. Just a little bit ago I found a hospital bracelet that used to belong to me. She had saved it for 26 years. I almost cried. I am supposed to fly out tomorrow from Witchita. The flight was canceled today. I can't wait to get home and be with my friends and family. It will be good. Tonight Rylee asked if I was coming over. I told her that I would be over tomorrow. I need to cry. I haven't cried today, just teary eyed. I walked outside to see the snow, but it was too deep to walk in. The wind chill is 0. I am trying to go through stuff that I want to bring of hers. I just don't know what all to bring now. Maybe her pillow. I am looking at her bed and I think that I will take that. She also has a Ferby by her bed. I was thinking of taking that for Rylee. I still can't find her jewlery box with the false bottom. I got a bunch of ideas for the song that I will play for her. It's a toss up between 2 songs. I think that I know which one to pick and why. The one that I like plays alot on the radio. That means that later on when I hear the song it will remind me of her. I am getting sad now. I am going to take a shower. Hopefully I will be able to make a flight tomorrow. It just sucks because I am far away from Witchita and I have to find a ride.

I love you all very much and thank you for all the help and support.

Your not in Kansas anymore

30,000 feet above the earth and I realize that I don't know my mom's favorite song.

The call came to tell me that my mom had been hurt bad in a car wreck. She was thrown from the car and then it rolled on top of her. Not good. That night she was given a 50/50 chance to come out of it. Later that night they were asking me about DNR. I said that she wouldn't want to live off of a machine if it came down to it. They said that she wasn't doing good. I told them that I would be on my way to Kansas in the morning. I went to sleep at about 4AM and then got up at 7AM when my cousin Sara called and told me that she would front me money for the ticket if I needed it. I then woke Mrs. H. up and we ordered my ticket online. She then took me to the airport. She is my rock.

My fear for the flight was that I wouldn't make it there if she were to die. I do love to fly though. I sat in a window seat on the way to Dallas and one on the way to Witchita. I listened to my ipod on the way. That's when I started thinking about the song My Guitar Gently Weeps, it's one of my dad's favorite songs, but what is my mom's favorite? I started to get teary eyed as I looked out the window and listened to Bad Day by James Blunt. Towards the end of the flight to Dallas I spoke to the woman sitting next to me. We talked about my mom, Thanksgiving, and other little things. In Dallas I called the hospital and they said that my mom was the same as she had been. Although, they had to cut into her swollen leg to releave the pressure. It wasn't until later that I found out that they were thinking of amputating it. I spoke to Mrs. H. and then I ate some food and waited for the flight to board for Witchita. On the way to Witchita the captain was a little funny with his announcements, "I'm Bob Johnson, and I approve of this message." Then in the middle of the flight we were flying between the clouds. It was so beautiful. Clouds above, clouds below, and us in between. That's when I thought about my mom. She was going through the same thing in a way. A life or death struggle with her in between. Hopefully it was as beautiful as that.

I landed in Witchita and grabbed a cab to the hospital. At the hospital I met Jeff, my mom's husband, and we went to the room.

It was surgical ICU, so we had to get buzzed in. Then I went to her room and saw her swollen face and body. I leaned down to tell her I was there, and I started to lose it. The nurse came in and asked me if I had any questions. I asked, "Is she in any pain?" I started to get teary eyed. She said that we would see a grimace on her face if she were. I then started to say, "Well that's good.", but all that came out was, "Well....." Then I really lost it. I hadn't cried at all other than about 2 seconds while talking to my father. I grabbed the nurse and cried so hard and held her so tight. She consoled me, patted me on the back, and told me that it would be alright. Then I was better, as soon as it started, it stopped. The nurse had told me that the Doctor would be in a little bit to answer any questions that I might have. The nurse left and it was just me and mom. I leaned down to talk close to her ear to make sure that she could hear me. I started to tell her that I made it and that everyone loved her. I named off everyone and appologized for not making it there under better circumstances. As I was talking to her I realized that her eyes were watering. I don't know if they were tears or just involuntary tears, but I would guess that they were tears. That made me very sad. I told her that this was the hardest thing that I had ever done and I didn't know if I could do it. I wanted her to understand me, so I would cry with clenched teeth as I spoke. Otherwise it would have been high pitched and incoherent. I told her to fight as hard as she could, but if she was tired of fighting then she could stop. I told her that we would all understand if she was tired of fighting. Then I reminded her of the funny things that happened to us. One was were her and I were staying at a Ramada Inn and we started wrestling on the bed. Well, we fell off the bed and we were being loud and laughing, then the next thing we know the maid walks out of the bathroom. She had came in to give us new towels and we hadn't heard her until she left. We laughed about that one for awhile. The other one was something silly that I remembered but didn't know if she did. There was an episode of Silver Spoons were Ricky Schroeder wants to be cool. He changes the way he dressed, he hung out with the cool kids, and he ALMOST dined and dashed. Anyway I had flipped my collar up and then walked into the kitchen with some sunglasses on. I then made the glasses flip up and down as I said a line from the show. She started laughing and asked what I was doing. That was just something that has always stuck in my head.

Her blood pressure was low and her kidneys were starting to fail. Her blood pressure kept fluctuating. It was going from 70 to 80 over 50. It's supposed to be 120 over 80. I kept talking to her as much as I could. Telling her everything. Playing Superman with Rylee, her moving back to Phoenix, and everyone loving her. The doctor then came and took me to the consult room to answer any questions that I may have. I asked her what had happened and what was happening. She explained to me about her hip and the hole that was in her diaphram. She had had surgery on those. The doctor said that all her organs had been tramatized and that there wasn't enough blood pressure to make everything work properly. Plus her blood wasn't clotting. They had already given her 14 units of blood. Also her urine output was very little. I told the doctor that I had asked the nurse if my mom was in any pain. Then I lost it again. The doctor said that she agreed with the nurse that there wasn't any pain. That was very good.

Then I went to make some phone calls. When I got back there hadn't been much of a change. Shortly after I got there from the airport, Jeff and his mom went to the bar down the street. Jeff needed to cry and drink. That was fine with me because I wanted my alone time with my mother. During the call to my father who was taking this very hard also (he'd known her since 1964). I asked my dad if he knew what mom's favorite song was. He said that he knew it, because she played it at the bar over and over again. He couldn't think of the name of it. I said is it by Tracey Chapman? He said that he believed it was. Then all I could think of was, "give me one reason to stay here." Dad said yes, that's it. It turned out that I did know her favorite song. Dad said maybe you can play it on your ipod for her. I explained to him that I didn't have that song.

Then I went back in to see mom. I whispered in her ear and tried to make her squeeze my hand. She didn't. I then took a picture of her. I then told her that I had some cute video of Rylee. She wasn't able to see them of course but she could hear them. I played Rylee in the bathtub swimming and laughing. I played one where she is wearing goggles and when I ask her to say something she says, "Poopy poop poop." Isn't that cute? Sorry it was so loud. I then told her that she needed to get better so she could come and see Rylee. Once again I appologized to her for not coming sooner. I cried alot. I was holding her hand and I felt something wet on my knuckles. I lifted the blanket a little and she was bleeding through her gown on her right side. I asked the nurse to help. She looked and said that the tube in her stomach was leaking. She put a new pad on there and changed mom's gown. I continued talking and holding her hand.

I made some more phone calls and then Jeff came back. We talked in the waiting room for awhile and then he went back down stairs to have some more beer in the car. He brought me some hot wings and then he went to see mom. A little bit later he came back in and told me that they wanted to talk to us. We went back to mom's room and that's when Jeff said that they want to unhook her from the tubes. He said, "She's dying." I said okay. Just trying to calm him down while I kept in eye on her blood pressure. He then turned to the doctor and said, "It's unanimous. You can stop." The doctor said, "Well...." Jeff said, "No bullshit, she's dying, and you've done all you can." She said, "We are going to give her 2 more units of blood and see if there's a change. I said, "Ok." Jeff said again, "She's dying Phillip." I said, "Maybe, let's see."

They hooked up 2 more units of blood. I just kept watching the monitor and my mother. Jeff went and sat down, because he almost fell down he was so tired. I then was holding her left hand during the first unit and again I felt something wet. I looked and there was a big blood spot. I told the doctor and she looked at it. She said that it was where they had cut her leg to releave the swelling. The doctor said that it was leaking. It was a couple of small veins or something that she couldn't really find easily. They put the second unit of blood up. By this time I had already moved to her right side. I leaned down and said, "Mom, you really need to fight. This is the last one, and they aren't going to put up anymore. If you're going to fight, do it now. PLLLLLEEEEEAAAAASSSSSEEEEE." That's when I saw the tears in her eyes again. I said, "If you can't I understand. I would really like it if you did come out of this. You or God need to show us a miracle right now. You need to get better so that you can come to Phoenix and see Rylee. She's so cute, she has me play Superman with her. I got her into Superman, I love that so much. She makes me so happy, and I want to be that happy every day." All during this I am crying uncontrollably and talking through gritted teeth. Then I couldn't breath. Shortly after this the last unit of blood was empty. Then I asked the doctor how they do this thing. She said, "It's called comfort care. We take everything out of her except for one I.V. and we give her pain medication through it. Then we let her go with no machines." I said, "Well how long, after you take the stuff off, will she last?" The nurse said, "It's hard to say. Some suprise us and last 30 minutes, and some are shorter." I said ok. Just then Jeff's mom came in and said that I had a call from my dad. "Oh great, he's not going to want to hear this.", I said as I went running to the waiting room. When I got on the phone I said, "You must be psychic." "Why?", he asked. "We are going to unhook her from the machines, they've done all they can do. There going to put her on comfort care." I explained what comfort care was and he started crying uncontrollably. I said, "I'm sorry." He said, "I was just calling to tell you to tell her that I love her." I said, "I already did that like 4 times." He was a little happier, "Oh good." Then he started to cry again. I appologized and told him that I had to go spend as much time with her as I could. Then we hung up.

I went back in and told her that everybody loved her. The chaplin came in and we prayed. After that I unloaded everything that I was holding in or thought that mom was upset about. I told her that I was sorry that I didn't appreciate her until it was too late. That I'm sorry that I didn't come out her sooner. Plus whatever else may have came out me at that time. Then Jeff went in and talked to her. He never went back in.

The respritory technician came in and took the tube out. I waited outside while he did that. Then I came in and held her hand. The chaplin prayed and the technician put his hand on my shoulder and prayed with us. I then leaned down and cried as I said, "I hope that you forgive us for this. I love you. You'll be in heaven now with Grandma and Grandpa." Then I cried some more. I leaned down to tell her to go in peace. As my ear passed by her lips, she gave one last exhale. The doctor said, "There she goes." The doctor then checked her pulse with the stethoscope and pronounced her dead at 3:19AM Tuesday November 28th. The day Superman Returns was released.


Now I'm stuck her in my mom's house with my step dad. Strange people that I don't know come to tell me what a great person my mother was. That just tears me up. I start to cry everytime I hear that. I'm trying to be strong for Jeff. I am trying to make sure that he gets the help he needs. Mom did everything for him and he has no idea about certain protocals. I spoke with the funeral director today and gave him all the information that he needed for the obituary. Now, I'm trying to think of where in Phoenix I'll have the memorial service. I also need to write something nice for it. Plus Jeff is asking me what I want of hers. The worst thing is that her friend said that she said if anything were to happen to her, check her jewlery box with a fake bottom. There will be a note in there telling what her wishes are. I am looking. Everything in the house reminds me of my mother. Her nick nacks. Jeff wants to give me this computer. He says that he will send it to me. Mom will be cremated Wedesday night. I think that's all. I will write more later. I am going to bed.

I love you all. Thanks for you thoughts and prayers.

Things that go bump in my head

OOOPS....I did it again.

I bought my friend of 29 years an Ipod. He liked mine and that made me want to get him one. Let's start from the beginning.

I met Joe in second grade and we hit off right away. What pals we were.

Wait, I meant the beginning of my day.

I woke up in a very good mood because I knew that I would be off the next 2 days. I texted Mrs. H. to find out when the were going to miniature golf. She said that they were already there. I had gotten the time wrong in my head. Didn't matter though because I was off work. I talked with Rob and Mei and showed her some pictures from my childhood. I told her about my dog that I loved, and how I want another one. Then we talked about the history of America, Thanksgiving, and why Indians are called Indians. Then I took a shower and left to meet Mrs. H. and her family. I arrived there and we all talked and played games with the kids. Then they left and I went to Circuit City. They didn't have any good sales. One minute I would think that something was a great deal and the next I would turn the corner and find a rip off. I left there and went to Metrocenter. I ate at the Jade Express, I had Sesame Chicken on fried rice, an egg roll, and a Pepsi. I did alot of people watching and I love doing that. Then I went Christmas shopping for some people. I realized earlier that one was a birthday present. No, not for Jesus, for Mr. H.

I found a really cool Chucky doll from Child's Play. I bought it for Joe. As I was paying for it I was talking to Dakini on the phone. I then went to the bookstore to buy a nice gift for Mrs. H's mother, 3 books by Nora Roberts. After that I headed home because I had to get the patrol car back so my guy could start the patrol. On my way home I called Joe to tell him that I got him a gift that I could give him at Christmas or before. That's when it hit me that I was going to buy him an Ipod for Christmas. He said that I didn't have to buy him and ipod. I said that I wanted to do something nice.

I got home and then my worker showed up and I talked with him for a bit. At the bookstore I had received a free set of Chronicles of Narnia books for spending a certain amount of money. Very cool. After talking with my worker I walked to Mrs. H. house. On the way I stopped at the comic store and got some G.I. Joe comics. Then I hung out at Mrs. H. house. After that Joe called me and I went with him to Zia's. We shopped around there for awhile and I bought Arrested Developement Season 3. That was the final season. That show is the funniest show that's ever been on television, in the history of television, and it was canceled. I CAN'T FUCKING BELIEVE IT. Everytime that I watch it it makes me angry.

When we got back to my house I showed him the Chucky doll. It actually talks and is really cool. The coolest thing is that it's in a box like it was in the movie. He told me that I should keep it because I could put it up and he wouldn't be allowed to. We surfed the internet and looked some Superman stuff that he had heard was wrong with the dvds. He started to leave and I said, "Let's go buy you an Ipod." He said, "No, you don't need to do that." I told him that I wanted to. After I kept asking he finally said, "Fine, let's go." We went to Walmart and bought him a Video Ipod. I gave him mine, because it already had songs and video on it, and I kept the new one. Which is the newer generation. So that's cool.

I then schooled him in the ways of the ipod and then he went home. I talked with Rob and Mei when I got home and told them about the ipod. Well I spoke with Mei. Rob was........Oh playing his PSP. He spoke a little. I was asked by Mei how much I paid for the dresser that is in my room. I said nothing, Mr. and Mrs. H. gave it to me. Then we talked about how nice it is. THANKS AGAIN.

I then moved the dresser and stuff and then got on the computer. I just checked what time it was, as I heard my roommates alarm. Always reminds me of Dane Cook's joke.

The alarm is going off every ten minutes and the roommate keeps shutting it off. FOR LIKE 2 hours.

Then later when the guy wakes up, he asks his roommate, "Did I wake you up?"

"No, I always wake up every 10 minutes for the last 2 hours of my sleep."

You'd have to hear it. I don't do it justice.

I know that I am sick in the head because I buy my friends expensive stuff, but that's who I am. I like to share my wealth. I know that I should be saving up, but that's no fun.

I'm very sorry that I bored you with my long uneventful day. Sorry, I was planning on going somewhere else with it, but that will have to wait until some other time.

I love you guys.

I'll write better next time.

My life and the natural woman

Whether you like her or hate her I still hope that you can see that she is a beautiful woman.

As is this one.

Now, I wasn't able to put up my favorite pictures of these two. (Not because they are nude or illegal, I just couldn't find them on the internet.) The point is these girls are all natural. I know that you're thinking what the fuck is the point of this fucking blog. I want to read about his EXCITING life. What's with the girls? Well here it is.

A CONVERSATION had this morning.

Me: "Look at this."
I show him an Allure magazine that I bought the other day with a very sexy picture of Scarlett Johansson in it.
Him: "Who's that?"
Me: "Scarlett Johansson from the Island."
Him: "Yeah, the Island."
So then I go in my room and try to start up a conversation about sexy women. I left my door open and I'm looking at my two pictures of Angelina Jolie.
Me: "The question is, who's sexier? I think that she (Angelina) may be sexier. I think Scarlett is hot, but Angelina is sexy."
He comes in and looks at the pictures of Angelina Jolie.
Him: "I don't know. I don't think she's that hot."
Me: "I cut that one out because it was the sexiest picture of a woman that I've ever seen."
He goes back to getting ready in the bathroom.
Him: "You should get out more."
For some silly reason I get defensive of Angelina Jolie. Like he's seen a hotter woman than her.
Me: "Oh you've seen a hotter woman than that."
Him: "Yes, in California."
Me: "Well in California it's wall to wall....plastic."
Him: "They are plastic."
Me: "I mean fake boobs, fake lips, fake everything."
He comes back in my room and points at the Angelina Jolie picture.
Him: "I bet she's not all natural."
I FLIP OUT (on the inside).
Me: "I'll bet you a hundred thousand dollars that she's all natural."
He laughs.
Me: "Ok I don't have a hundred thousand dollars, but I have nine hundred and seventy five dollars that says that she's natural. I've followed her career since she was little."
Him: "You've known her since she was little?
Trying to condescend me.
Me: "I know."
He finishes getting ready and I change my clothes.
I walk out to the living room.
Him: "Sorry I picked on your girlfriend."
Me: "Ha."

I was upset more to the fact that he would think that she is plastic and fake. It's not because I'm a fan of the woman, it's because she is so beautiful that he doesn't see it. Allow me to go off on a tyrade that Mrs. H. loves so much.

WHAT THE FUCK????!!!!! You've seen way hotter chicks than Angelina Jolie. YOU? Hanging out at modeling agencies were ya? I've seen several women in my lifetime. Whether it be on tv, the movies, or in person, and I've only seen one drop dead gorgeous woman in my life. Her name is Jane. She is GLAMOROUS. I tell her that whenever I see her. I told her that, after the first time that I met her. So maybe in California you did see alot of beautiful women, but at least give Angelina Jolie the benefit of the doubt. It's not even about Jolie, it's about stupid guys that I know that can't tell if a woman has fake breasts or not. It's guys that think that Penelope Cruz is hot, it's guy's that love to get lap dances by woman with big fake breasts. YUCK! They make me sick. I know that I am obsessed with breasts, but hey that's who I am. I like breasts. REAL, Fleshy, soft, voluptous breasts.

One of the points of my blog is this......
Do you think that Angelina Jolie has had work done?
Do you see her beauty?
Personal feelings aside, who do you think is hotter, Scarlett of Angelina?
Last but not least, if you DO know anyone who is a beautiful woman, send her my way.

Now about me. I'm meeting a guy today that I am interviewing and probably going to hire. He will work Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday on the Alliance Patrol. Gary would like me to try to fill as many of the shifts that I work as possible. That would be cool. Maybe I would work only 32 hours. We talked about maybe me doing 4 days with 3 days off. By the way, I'm making 17 dollars and hour now. I like that alot. Plus I am off tonight. I will also be off on Friday. Things are looking up.

I love you guys and thanks for reading.


Have a wonderful day.

Ok, so here's the situation, my friend went away on a week's vacation....


She went to the Lamborghini factory and.........

Enough about her and her awesome as hell trip. This is my blog, and it's all about ME!

Well on Friday I was supposed to be getting off at about 8 PM. Turns out that guy Heath that I talked about. He called off on Friday night. SO I had nobody to work his shift. I had to cover it. I worked that day from 3PM to 5AM. I thought well at least I'll have Saturday off. So on Saturday morning at 5 AM when I'm driving home, my car dies on me. I pull it over to the side of the road and call my boss. The car turned over but wouldn't start. He came and we messed with the car a little and then we called a tow truck. They towed the car to the mechanic. I thought that that would be cool, because I would finally get my car fixed. Keith, the owner of the company I work for, bought me breakfast. We then talked about the work schedule and how Frank wasn't doing his part as a supervisor. I told Keith that I may have to work Saturday night because I actually had nobody to work the Hampton Inn. Keith dropped me off at home and then called me later to tell me that he had gotten someone to work. I could have the night off. I was happy. That was about noon. I received a text at about 6 PM from Heath telling me that he was quitting because he had gotten another job in California. 2 hours before he is supposed to be at work, and he quits. What a fucking loser. I don't need him anyway. That meant that after all the trouble they went through to get someone to work for me, I was going to have to work anyway. So I did. Then I worked Sunday night and Monday night. I actually had off Tuesday night. Then I worked 12 hours last night, and now I'll have tonight (Thursday) off. I'm supposed to work Friday from 3 PM to 11 PM, but the I should be off that night.

Things are starting to die back down. Starting on Monday, Hampton will only need 1 guy instead of 2. That means that I have an extra guy to move somewhere else. I should be able to move people around and fill my empty positions. Then again I always say that. Also the owners say that it looks like this other property will be added on to my side of town. Union Hills and 19th Avenue needs a patrol through their apartments. That will be another 50 cents to a dollar raise. I am so excited that I'm making 16.50 an hour right now.

Oh but then yesterday I call the mechanic to see if he's done with the car. The secretary says that I should call Gary because the motor is messed up. SO I call Gary, the president of the company, he says that the mechanic told him that the car was going to cost 2000 dollars to fix. We all agree that that is too much. I went to ask for a personal loan from the bank to get a car with, and I wasn't approved. Now the owners of the company say that they will try and help me get a car. Hopefully I can get a car that will be reliable. Anyway, just thought that I would keep you guys up to date.

I am now going to go home and either watch a movie or go to bed.

I love you guys and thanks for reading.

Getting things filled and missing my friend

Well I'm still trying to get all of my shifts filled. It was almost happening, but then the Hampton Inn needed two security guards every night. I'm sure that I already wrote about that. The thing that sucks is that if I didn't have this shift to fill, I would probably be fine. I have got the positions filled at the condos. All of those are filled. Now I just need to fill the spot that DUMBO Heath left open when he left. He gave his two weeks notice and his last night was Tuesday. The funny thing was that he asked me to write him a letter of recommendation. I told him that I would, but I didn't. Then last night he called and asked if he would have a job if he came back to Arizona. I told him that he might, but I would probably have his position filled. He sounded upset, oh well. I hired another guy last night but he only wants to work during the day. I can maybe use him, but I'm not sure. I had been working quite alot without a day off. Finally on Tuesday night I was able to have a night off. That was very cool. I went shopping at Walmart with my cousin and then we went and hung out with his 18 year old girlfriends. I ate and he talked to them. Then I went home and watched the movie Cars. It was a good movie, except that my friend Joe's wife said that it was better than the Incredibles. It wasn't. The other day I caught up on some of my special features on DVDs that I hadn't watched yet. Ferris Bueller's Day Off and The Break-Up. I watched The Break-Up with Mei the other day, and it was quite funny. There were things in the movie that she found that were kind of identical to arguments that her and her husband have had. I found Jon Favreau funny in the movie. Especially in a part where he tells Vince that he can buy a program for like 20 bucks that counts keystrokes. The whole movie is funny and sweet.

Diva Princess called me on Wednesday to ask me a movie question. I helped her out. I always love to help with my useless movie information, but I guess it was useful.

The final thing is that my friend Mrs. H. is gone to Italy. She will be back by tonight, but I will wait to see her until she has time with her family. I am off Friday night, but Mr. H. has off on Friday so that's family day all day. I will see her on Saturday, Sunday, or maybe Monday. Whatever day it is we will hang out and have a good time, like we always do. I hope she had a great time. I will take her out to eat and hear all about it.

Sorry I didn't write sooner, but I don't have a log in at my house to get on the computer, and I haven't been to Mrs. H.'s until this morning. Rob took me off the computer when they moved it into their room. Then it was keeping him up when Mei was on it at night, so he put it in the office. Sucks for me, but oh well. Who cares?

I hope that I didn't bore anybody. Thanks for reading. Good night.

The Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades

That was how I felt when they told me......

Earlier in the week the owners of my company asked us supervisors who wanted a new property. It's an 18 story building of condos. I raised my hand, but then they said that Bryan was going to take it. I said ok, and went about my business. I kept the property in mind just in case they did give it to me. After all it is on my side of town (Central and Camelback). Well I had heard from Bryan that he didn't really want it. Then on Tuesday morning the owners called me and said that we were having a meeting on Wednesday and I should be there.

I said, "So I guess that it's mine?"

Keith: "I guess so. I don't know have you heard anything?"

Me: "I heard that Bryan doesn't want the headaches. I'll take it."

Keith: "Ok."

I still didn't know if I was going to be getting another dollar raise, or if they would give it to me in some other way. Well after the meeting yesterday, they told me that I'll be getting another dollar an hour raise. That means that now I make 16.50 an hour. Very cool. I'm happy.

We put an ad in the newspaper and several people have called with guard cards. Within 3 days I hired 5 people. I am getting close to having everything covered. I know that I've said that before, but this time it will work.

I'm sorry that you know all this already Mrs. H., but I wanted to write something on my blog. I would write other things but I can't think of anything else. I am tired. I had to come back here and get my cell phone.

I know something that happened.
Mrs. H. got a pink ipod just in time for her trip to Italy. It's really cool. She said that she wanted it and she was going to buy it for herself, but I like doing nice things for her. I bought it online and had it engraved. She likes it alot, which makes me feel good.

I'm very tired. I am going to go home and go to bed now. Good night all.

Mrs. H. I'll see you tonight. CHALLENGE!
