Week 47

Things I've Learned From My Job

 1. The nicer you are to customer service people, the more willing we are to help you. 

 2. The people in charge don't always know what's going on.  

3. Hoodlums come out at night.  

4. Sometimes you have to take precautions to keep honest people honest. 

5. Some rules are made to be broken under the right circumstances.

Week 46

What I'd do with an enormous amount of money:

Travel - There are so many places that I want to go and that is the first thing I would do. 

Buy a nice house in a neighborhood I like

Buy my dad a motor home so he could fish whenever and wherever he wanted. 

Set up accounts for my nieces and nephews for when they finish college.

Buy myself a motorcycle

Week 45 {way late}

Last week's list was supposed to be about funny things kids say. I don't have kids. I don't work with kids {at least not until summer} but I do have some pretty cute nieces and nephews. I don't have a "list" but I can say that one of them, after sitting by my sister-in-law for about an hour looked up and said, "I'm done sitting by you." :) Cute kid!

I need an answer.

We found a house that we really like. It is big enough, but not too big. It has room for us to grow into. It is a little out dated but it is liveable. It is in great shape (which is rare in my limited budget). The back yard is nice and has a great patio area. The only problem is that it is in Kaysville. Is that stupid? It's only 12 miles north of where we live now. I feel dumb for making a big deal out of it. I am afraid that we would be too lonely. I fear we would spend all of our time driving back down to Bountiful to be with family and friends. I need some opinions on this. I feel like I have looked at every house in this area, that I could afford, and I can't find anything. I don't know. I am just getting so tired of living with the in-laws. I would really love a space of my own.

Week 44

In April I want to:

1. Log what I eat and exercise.  I have been doing very well at this the last couple of weeks and it is really helping. 

2. Cheer up.  I have such a hard time with winter.  It makes me very depressed.  I'm hoping now that it is getting warmer, I will be able to get out and cheer up. 

3. Make progress on getting a house.  Whether it be closing on a house, putting an offer in on one, or just finding at something I like.  

4.  Spend more time with my friends.  They are so busy lately, and I have been so stagnant that I really want to enjoy the time I spend with them. 

5. Stand up for myself.  I am a people pleaser but there are some things I am just not willing to do.  I usually don't say anything because I'm a nice person, but it's getting ridiculous. 

 6. Find a hobby.  Not really find, but spend more time doing the things I enjoy.  No more days that I spend doing nothing.
