Is There Life on MARRRS..

I had a pretty nice week/weekend.  It was very busy and now I am ready to go back to work.  I have broken down and I am going to try and get my job back at the bank.  It was my last resort plan and I'm sad that it has come to this point.  Oh well!
On Wednesday my Mom and Sister came down to Milwaukee.  Mom and I went to the Art Museum and Abi and her friend hung out at Summerfest.  After we were done at the Art Museum we went to Summerfest and ate some nummy food and then they went home and so did I.  I also had an interview for a job and I thought for sure I got the job but I did not.  I was very bummed but I am over it now.

Thursday was a great day.  The weather was wonderful and I went to Six Flags with one of my greatest friends ever, Joe.  We had a blast despite me having a strange tummy ache/ head ache the whole time.  We went on all of the most baller rides but did not go on the new one, Dark Knight because the wait line was about 120 minutes!  No thanks!  We left a bit early so we could make it back to Milwaukee on time to see the Fireworks.  Chris, Joe and I met up with our good friend Dan and Tricia.  We were not as close to the fireworks as we were last year but we still could see them pretty well.  Luckily it wasn't raining like last year!  Joe got totally wasted and I planned on it but it was that night that I found out I didn't get that job so I was sad and really just wanted to cry and go to bed!

Friday was the Fourth of July and it was, for the most part, a relaxing day.  Chris and I had a beautiful picnic at a local park that has a great view of the city and there were no other people there!  I was really surprised about that.  We laid around and just enjoyed the nice weather.  We came home and I took a nap and Chris took his Motorcycle out for a ride.  Then we went to Summerfest that evening to see The Roots.  This is where I start ranting... I wanted to just take the 10 bus, a bus that runs right in front of my house and only costs $2 to ride, but Chris insisted on going to Dan and Tricia's house.  We were planning on seeing a 10 o'clock show so I wanted to arrive a half hour early to get a good seat.  We got to their house at about 7:30 and we didn't leave until about 9.. THEN we went to this bar to take a shuttle to the fair and you had to buy a drink to even ride it!  So that was 2.50 a person for Chris and I because we just got PBR.  I didn't even drink mine because I didn't want to have to go to the bathroom every 15 minutes.  SOOO, we finally get there and it is already 9:45.  I was pretty disappointed because I figured we would get the crappiest crap seats ever.  We ended up seeing a great old friend from West Bend, Anna Williams and her friend Diesel (I forgot his real name), and Anna acted as a train conductor and led our 4 person train all the way to the fourth row! I ended up being able to stand on a bleacher and see the whole show.  THANKS ANNA!  It turned out pretty well despite getting there so late!  So after the show we take the 10 bus home and it stops a mile before our stop and the driver says, "THIS IS AS FAR AS I'M GOING. EVERYONE OFF THE BUS!"  I was so upset!  I mean, a mile isn't very long but my feet were soooo tired and it was way past my bedtime.  We made it home, luckily, and I fell asleep right away.

Saturday we went up to Chris' parents house for his Dad's birthday celebration.  It was a nice time and his little cousins came over and they are cute.  One of them is very naughty, the younger one, and the older one, they are one year apart, is as sweet as can be!  It's strange.  We got home and watched a movie but I fell asleep right away.

Sunday afternoon was kind of crappy but I ended up going on a very nice walk down by the river and read a book at a park up the road.  Then I went to church and to my friend's house for dinner.  It was very good.

Yesterday I got my car back!!!  I had it towed to the shop sunday and it was fixed by monday, thank you greatest mechanic ever.  We also went to a motorcycle shop and I tried on helmets!  SCARY! Unfortunately I am now in kind of a bit of debt.  It's ok for now.  Having it fixed is a HUGE load off my shoulders.  Now I just need to sell it!

Today I went to the bank and the assistant manager told me to come back and talk to the boss tomorrow!!  I AM SO NERVOUS.  I also went to value village, 50% off all housewares and books, and picked up some little saucer plates, to put things like muffins/biscuits on when we are eating out of bowls, for 90 cents for 6 of them, and I got a heavy duty curtain to put in the doorway between the kitchen and the living room.  The kitchen gets soo hot and I'd like to keep the heat in there and not in my semi-cool living room! So I got books, 6 saucers, and I heavy duty curtain for $4.44.  I consider it a major success. That's all that I've got for now!  This was a long entry and if anyone made it this far, thanks for reading!!

Sounds like you had a pretty good weekend minus the part about not getting the job. That curtain idea for the kitchen sounds really cool. I know it gets super hot when I cook anything and its almost a deterrent to cooking (however, right now its the lack of food thats deterring me.) I really want to find a grill so I can cook tofu steaks and kebobs outside. I usually use my cast iron grill pan in the house, but that gets it all hot and smoky. What book did you read? I need to find something to read, as I haven't read anything new in a long time.

Yeah, it was a nice weekend. Did you guys do anything fun? I ended up finishing the curtain this afternoon and it looks pretty good. I got a spring tension shower curtain rod so I didn't have to use any screws to put it up. I could take a picture of it if you'd like! The heat was totally a deterrent for me too! We have a nice little grill on the balcony but I don't know how to cook anything but veggie burgers on it! I started reading another book by Kurt Vonnegut called Palm Sunday, it's an autobiography and I adore him. I also just reserved a copy of Oil! by Upton Sinclair, the guy who did The Jungle, at the library. I'll let you know if it's any good!

I shot fireworks, see my new post. I grill tempeh all the time and I made kebobs that were amazing once. Also, eggplant and zucchini is the shit.

Friday was indeed good!
I'm not so sure about Value Village being the greatest, haha, it's ghetto! However, on weekends everything in the store is 1/2 off and then during the week different things are discounted depending on the day. I mostly go for strange dinnerware and old sheets/curtains to use for fabric! Next time I go you should totally come with. :) I hope you have fun in Florida, you lucky duck!!
