s.o.m.
I think I am getting over my bout of depression and all.  The panic attacks are subsiding.  Things are getting bettttterrr.
Like I said in last entry, I got my job back.  At first they were like "Yeah, we are retards and you have to go through training and you can't start until August 4th"  I was like fuuuuck that shit!  So I busted some balls/skulls and now I start on Monday.  I have training for three friggen weeks and I am sure it's going to be super boring seeing as I know all that bullshit.  BUT, it's monday through friday, 8:30-5:00, no work on weekends for three weeks!  I have three pretty nice weekends coming up.

Next weekend my brother turns 30 so I am going to Madison to see a roller derby!  I am really looking forward to it.  Then we are going to play a lot of board games.

Two weekends from now my mom turns 50!  I think we are going camping or something.  The Police concert is also that friday, that may be awkward seeing as my dad and I aren't speaking and he's got the tickets.  I'm not going to stress about it, I think it'll be a great show.

Then the next weekend my cousin is having her baby shower.  I usually hate hate hate baby showers, but she is my favorite cousin.  I made her a baby sling, it was easy and I think she will like it.  It looks like this :
It is a maroon color and I hope it'll be ok because she is having a baby boy, I just didn't have any boy-ish colors that would work.  I can't imagine the baby would mind, but I don't know about the parents, why am I rambling on about this?

Anyway, this weekend was pretty good, I am going to include Thursday in it.
Thursday my friend Kelly and I made strawberry freezer jam and it is soooo good!  I usually don't care for strawberry jam but this stuff is really delicious!  We were planning on going to Bastille Days, some french festival, but the weather was crappy so we just ordered pizza hut and sat around for awhile.  It was enjoyable.

Friday was pretty sweet because a local bar, Riverhorse, had a special thing to support the Riverwest24, it was $7 for all you can drink Riverwest Stein beer, which is made by Lakefront Brewery.  I didn't drink but Chris and Dan did.  There was supposed to be some Bike Olympics but two people were sent to the hospital so it was called off.  Totally lame!  We went to eat some dinner at Rio West Cantina and they had some good stuff, not as good as La Fuentes, but not bad

Saturday afternoon was spent sitting around and making that baby sling, cooking up some really good pea soup and granola until Chris came home from drill.  Later in the evening we walked over to Dan's house to watch Kung-Fu movies.  We got to see some really awesome old friends and sat around talking and it was really great.  I got a bit drunk from drinking Hard Cider and Chris and I finally walked our asses home at 4:30am.  This morning I slept in until noon!

Today has been boring.  Chris is out riding his motorcycle and I am sitting at home.  We may go see a movie later with his brother and Dad.  I love his family.  Oh yeah, and Chris ended up getting me a cute little scooter, a 1978 Honda Express.  Yes, that's right 1978, 30 years old!  It's totally baller and I can't wait to ride it.  I will probably be laughed out, but I don't mind!  It tops out at 30mph, maybe 35.  I will drive it to work after training because work is close by, training is not, it's about 25 minutes and I hate driving.  I am going to take pictures of it later.  Oh well.. I shouldn't complain, at least I have a car.  That's all I've got.

Life Lesson #11-   Don't let potatoes rot.  They smell like dead animals.  Use them before they go bad, or when they start to go bad, get rid of them asap.

Dan's was fun, but I forgot my phone there. I had it out to wake me up for an alarm and I totally didn't grab it on my way out. By the time I realized it was gone, we were too far away and we wanted to just catch out. Do you think you or Dan could mail it to me or bring it with you this weekend? Thanks!
