a love hate relationship

I'm talking about work. I love it because I get great pay and benefits to boot. I'm talking GREAT benefits. I hate it for the following reasons:
1) an iffy product that seems to be getting worse
2) not enough people to help support the existing issues we have
3) changing gears midstream and no one telling me
4) non-responsiveness
5) the statement "Mel knows..."

I'm just aggravated and tired of being in the middle. I think I'll just stop caring like everyone else.

I was aggravated with life so I did this. I am so in the wrong line of work.

RIP Georgie

I woke this morning to find George III (aka Georgie) had passed. Georgie is our 2 year old goldfish. Not a fair fish but a store bought 27 cent fish.

He'd been having some issues lately - trouble breathing, not moving, some discoloration. Not a bad run for a goldfish. Just over 2 years.

I have yet to tell Erin as she's still asleep.

We tried the Angel Food Network program at a local church and all I can say is WOW. The amount of food we got for $30 was incredible - tater tots, chicken tenders, steak, riblets, frozen veggies, pizza, Italian sausage, burgers, eggs and more! I also got a pack of 10 lbs of Chicken tenders for $16... We have enough to last us in meat for a month or more!

With the cost of food these days, I may be able to get away with $150 a month on groceries (or, maybe a little more if I want ice cream).

I'll let you know how things taste...

Brass Ring Pictures


Chillin on the Dragon swing looking oh so pretty

Silly head cut out

5 miles

Thats what I walked today. Today was the Brass Ring Thing up in Tonawanda. Its a benefit for The Hershell Carrousel Museum and the SCA does a lot of the demos. Erin and I went. She played all the games ($5 bracelet), had lunch there with me ($9), 2 bottles of water ($4), and wanted a thing for head ($7). I splurged on something for me ($14) and thats it. Why do I not have any money??

Regardless, she had fun and I got burnt. She bet up the fighters and loved it. I loved watching her beat up the fighters.

Dinner was part of the reason I walked so far. We went to the Marina to get Ice Cream for dinner. I just don't care. So we walked down to the redone section of the marina - its nice. Still needs work but its nice.

Pixs to come as soon as I find the camera, cord and can feel my feet.

59 days.....

20 hrs, 10 min ....... until Pennsic....well when I leave for Pennsic with my two best friends for a week of Camping with 10,000 of my 'closest' friends. The 3 of us need this vacation very very badly. We're all camping together which makes it easier on the walking and keeping tabs at random points in the day (well, we'll loose Lil at some point, we always do).

Is it Pennsic yet???
