So tonight we have a men's varsity basketball game so I didn't have to come in until 1. Which is very nice. I like coming in late, it makes your day go by faster, but it also means that you have to stay late. I'm sick of working nights and weekends and holidays. I wish I could find a clinc where I only had to work 8-5, no nights, no weekends, no holidays. That would be soooooooo awesome. Especially when we start having kids. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it I guess.

I'm having difficulties finishing up with my holiday shopping. I need to find those last minute stocking stuffers that everyone loves so much. You know what's even better than buying them, is saving money while doing so. That's why I love to use promo codes while I'm shopping. I especially love to use them while shopping at Wal-Mart and target. So if you need to do some last minute shopping, be sure to check out promo codes to save yourself so cash. I was paid for this post.
So I was called last night by the vice president of a company that hires out athletic trainers and physical therapists to other companies that pay for our service. He said that he was very interested in speaking with me about coming to work for them. When I talked to Josh about it, he mentioned that Jake might want to come back here and that he would be making a lot more money than I would. So if that happens, I'm saying screw Josh and I'm going somewhere else. He must not respect me enough to fight for me to make more, but he'll let Jake come in and make just as much as he is as our head athletic trainer.
Are you significantly overweight or know someone that would benefit from losing a lot of weight? If this is true than I suggest you consider looking into lap-band ventura. The lap-band system is the only modifiable and completely reversible weight-loss surgery available in the United States. The lap-band is designed to help you lose excess body weight, improve weight-related health conditions and enhance quality of life. It diminishes the stomach capacity and controls the amount of food that can be ingested at one time. This procedure will allow you to feel full and satisfied while you actually eat less and lose weight. . I was paid for this post.
My uncle Bob's birthday was yesterday. He's awesome, he is honestly one of the greatest men I know. He's has his own business, Certified Pest Control. He's very good at what he does because he know's everyone and is friends with everyone so everyone wants him to spray their house. He's hoping to get a partner and do lawn care as well. They would make lots of money doing that.
While searching all of the popular sites designed for traveling, I couldn’t find a site that was as easy and convenient to use like this one for Hotel Reservations. They have highly competitive rates that you can’t find just anywhere. They also offer huge discounts on world wide destinations. They offer convenient pull down menus for 15 different countries with hundreds of destinations. You can also search in 4 different languages to reserve a Hotel Reservation. I was paid for this post.

I really, really dislike Mondays especially when I have 5 days off for Thanksgiving break. It was a great break. We didn't do a whole lot. We had 2 Thanksgivings on Thursday. Other than that we went and set traps and then checked them on Sunday. We went Christmas shopping for a little while on Friday but didn't buy anyone anything. I need to get on the ball though because I usually am almost finished by now. Oh well, I 'll get done.
Wednesday, November 21, 2007
Our offices are closed today because of Thanksgiving vacation, but I'm in town because I'm going to pick up my niece and we're going to run to Wal-Mart. I need a few things to make food for our Thanksgiving dinners. I can't wait to see Reese. I haven't seen her since Friday. She's so awesome. We'll have to play with her kitchen set and she'll cook me meals with play dough.

We had an athletic's department meeting today. Same crap, different day. They say that the PAC is going to be done in March now. Yeah right, I'll believe it when I see it. I can't wait to get in there, we'll have everything new and I'll actually have my own office. I can even shut my door and have a moments peace from everyone. It'll be so exciting, maybe we'll get to start moving stuff over Christmas break. Hopefully we'll have some kids around that can help us move stuff over there.

Today is the last day of my week. Well I have to work on Sunday afternoon but other than that, I have the rest of the week off. We have thanksgiving at Eric's grandparents' house on Thursday at 1 and then we have my family's thanksgiving at 3 too. I love this time of year!!! My birthday is in 10 days and I'm not too excited for it to come. But Eric is really trying to be sneaky with my gifts. I wonder what he's getting me. I love getting presents.
I love to look through websites such as classmates, myspace and facebook to find old friends and classmates that I have lost touch with. I also use it to take a look at my students and what they have been up to since we last talked. It is also fun to keep an eye on my relatives who use these fun sites. It is nice to be able to see what people are up to without having to call them and be stuck on the phone with them for a long time. But I was recently introduced to a website for a different type of person. This site is geared towards Goth singles and it features thousands of profiles and pictures of other singles just like you. It is a dating and personals website meant for Goth, Dark, Fetish, Vampire, Heavy, Extreme Music and Alternative Culture. Not only is membership free, but you can also “send a wink” to someone you find interesting. They also have a cupid that will find you a compatible person who you can have a free video chat with. So if you are a Goth single and are looking for other Goth, Dark, Fetish, Vampire, Heavy, Extreme Music and Alternative Culture people, check this site out. I was paid for this post.

So it's been very slow today. It always feels this way after football ends. I had my meeting with the athletic dirctor today about my plans to stay around for awhile. He was worried that since I am getting married that we would be leaving Iowa or at least this area soon after. I assured him that we planned on staying around since both of our families are here. I told him that Josh and my plan was to get a 3rd trainer hired and then I could lessen my hours, but still work full time and keep my benefits. I told him that I would love to get $50,000 a year and not have to work another day in my life. He thought that was funny. He said that all of the coaches really like me and like the way I do things. It's nice to get a compliment since usually all we hear are complaints.
Do you need a change of scenery? A new place to get away to in your own home? A new place to work out and exercise in? A new work space to make you more effective and efficient? Or maybe you just want a new place to relax in and enjoy your family or you quiet time? If any of these sound familiar, then maybe you should consider garden buildings. They are an original, inventive building that you can design to meet you and your family’s needs. You can decide on how big you want it and where you want to place it and a group of technicians will come to your home (only available in the mainland of the United Kingdom) and put it up for you. They feature four different styles of garden buildings: contemporary, cube, curve and then you can design your own. All of which are constructed for you to meet your needs. So if you think a garden building might be something you are interested in then be sure to visit their website to see all the beautiful pictures they have posted to choose the perfect one for you. I was paid for this post.
So I don't really care for Mondays at all. We didn't get a whole lot of sleep this weekend. We went out to eat on Friday night and then went back to my parents house and played Catch Phrase with my aunts and uncle and cousin. It was a blast. I love that game. Then we were up early on Saturday and went and set traps. Then my sister Danielle came home so we all fixed dinner together at my parents house and then we all went out and had a couple drinks. It was fun. Sunday we had a Thanksgiving in Ottumwa for Eric's family. We then went home and watched the Steelers play a pathetic game of football.
So my mom is a pretty hard person to shop for during the holidays. It’s not that she’s picky, it’s just that she already has tons of knick knacks and a lot of clothes, and most of her collections are almost complete. So when I found out about Wall Fountains I was really excited. They offer Wall Fountains that don’t require any special plumbing or electrical hookups. You just add water, plug in and enjoy! I thought it was a perfect indoor gift that no one had thought of to give her before. I was paid for this post.
Saturday, November 17, 2007
Well my sister Danielle is back for the night. We all made dinner together and we are getting ready to drink some beer. Then I think we're going to head to the bar. I know one of the local bars has karoke on Saturday nights. We're going to meet some of our cousins up there. It should be a good night. Hopefully no one will throw up tonight. Usually someone in the group overindulges a smidge and vomits. Oh well we have a good time and that's all that matters.

Could this day go any slower? Man, I don't think it could. It's only been three hours since I've gotten back from lunch and it feels like 10 hours. It could be that we actually have plans tonight. We're going out for dinner and drinks with my parents and aunt Beth and uncle Bob. A new Chinese restaurant has opened in Oskaloosa and we're all excited to go to it. I love Chinese, I wish there were better Chinese restaurants around here. Anywho...........
My fiancé and I love to travel and in the past when we have wanted to travel we have had to pay outrageous prices to fly or even to stay in a hotel. Once in a while I’d find a good deal on the internet, but for the most part we would get stuck with a huge airline bill. Well if you are like us and you love to travel, especially if you like to travel to the United Kingdom, and if it is usually last minute, have I got Last Minute Hotel Rooms for you. It’s easy to search for any destination in the United Kingdom. You can search through hundreds of towns in fifteen regions, you can even decide on your max price and it can search using just that information. You can choose between hotels, cities, country retreats, costal classics, ideal base and a luxury collection. You can even choose your Last Minute Hotel Room by near by attractions or you might even choose to have an adults only vacation or you might choose to travel in a big group. If any of these apply to you, you need to take a peek at Last Minute Hotel Rooms. I was paid for this post.
I can't believe it but I think I have Saturday AND Sunday off this weekend. It's amazing. It'll be the first whole weekend I'll have off since July. I have a whole list of things I'd like to get done. I'd love to get our Christmas lights up this weekend since we didn't get it done last weekend. We need to vacuum and mop the kitchen floor. Eric also needs to recaulk the the shower. We're going to set traps on Saturday afternoon so hopefully we'll catch something. Eric was so proud of himself. When we're in Ottumwa, we need to stop and look at the cadleabras that we can rent there.

I’m getting married March 1, 2008 and we’re not leaving on our honeymoon till March 3. So we were looking for a hotel to stay in near the airport. We didn’t want anything fancy or expensive with a lot of frill. We just wanted a bed to sleep in for the night that was close to the airport so that we didn’t have to get up in the middle of the night to get ready and drive an hour and a half to the airport to get on our 6 am flight. I searched all of the popular sites that are advertised on television, on the radio and all over the internet and I couldn’t find a site that I liked better than this site for Hotel Reservations. They have highly competitive rates that you can’t find just anywhere. They also offer huge discounts on world wide destinations. They offer convenient pull down menus for 15 different countries with hundreds of destinations. You can also search in 4 different languages on their website. If you’re not sure where you want to stay but know that you want to stay near a certain landmark, you can search using those parameters too. If you’re looking to travel internationally there is a Spanish site, a French site, a German site and an Italian site you can visit to see what their countries have to offer. Do you hate to fly? Are you looking for a short weekend getaway? Well if you do, there’s a place for you as well. You can plan a road trip anywhere from 1 hour to 6 hours away from any zip code you enter. How handy is that? If you’re planning a short getaway or a nice vacation, use Hotel Reservations to plan an affordable trip. I was paid for this post.
VOLLEYBALL WON!!! It's so exciting! We won the first game easily 30-14. We then lost the second game 29-31. Then the third game was really scary. We won 30-28. Then won the fourth game fairly easily 30-21. It was awesome to watch. I'm so proud of them. They've worked really hard for this. It's hard to have a new coach at the beginning of the season, but they have done it.
Are you looking to buy your first home? Maybe you it’s your 10th home. Or maybe you’re looking to relocate due to your job, your family or your dreams. Whichever the case, I can guarantee that you’re looking for a reasonable re-mortgage to satisfy your pocketbook and your peace of mind. I know when we were looking to buy our first home a few years ago; there were a lot of possibilities to consider. I’m sure you’re looking for a cheap mortgages. Not too mention deciding between variable rate and fixed rate mortgages. When making these important decisions, make sure to consider all the facts on all re-mortgage. I was paid for this post.

So my mom and I went shopping around yesterday for a unity candle. I really wanted one that had our engagement picture on one side and then on the back was our invitation, but I can not find one that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I was searching on ebay all day and found a couple that I really liked but they are way too expensive for us to use for 20 minutes during our ceremony. I found one at Mahaska Drug that I'll probably use. It's $26, but it's a fancy one like I found on the internet. Now I need to find our candelabras.
I love to save money when I’m shopping all year long, not to mention during the holidays. Before you know it Christmas will be here and you’ll be running around trying to find the perfect gift for everyone in your life. A great way to save some money is by using Online Coupons. I love to shop and when I actually have time to go shopping, I love to save money. Some of my favorite stores to shop in is Old Navy and of course everyone’s favorite Target. Since Christmas is just around the corner, make sure to shop with your favorite store’s Online Coupons to save some money. I was paid for this post.
Tonight we have the first round of our regional volleyball tournament. We play St. Ambrose at 7 pm. We've already played and beat them this year twice, so tonight should be quite exciting. If we lose, we are done for this season. However, if we win, we play on Friday at a site to be determined when tonight's games are all finished. I love to watch volleyball, it's such a fun game to play and watch.
Does your child or loved one have difficulty reading? If they do, then maybe you should look into getting a reading tutor. Let the people at Reading Tutors help your child excel at reading.

I have today off! It's nice to have days off in the middle of the week because then I can actually clean my house without Eric undoing everything that I'm trying to pick up. I'm going to have Reese this afternoon too. I usually have her the whole day when I'm off but since she just started at her new babysitters, Ash only wants me to have her in the afternoon. I think I'll take her to the park since it's like 60 degrees outside. She had diarrhea yesterday, we think she's getting her 2 year molars. Anyways, I'm going to go bake some cookies.

I HATE MONDAYS!!! It might have something to do with only have MAYBE one day off a week, but it's irritating. Josh is off today so that will be nice to be here by myself today. I'm glad football is over though. That's a whole group of kids I won't see till next year. Some of them will stop in to see us, but most we won't see again for 9 months. YAY!!! So Eric caught 3 things in his traps yesterday, 2 raccoons and a opossum. He was sooooooo excited. At least we know that he can do it now. And he's making $20 a big coon hide so that will help with expenses. But I need to put the football knee braces away. It's a dirty, smelly job but someone has to do it and since Josh didn't do it yesterday, it looks like it's now become my problem.
As someone who excels at math, I know that not everyone finds math as easy as I do. But I do know that there are learning centers out there that make math easy to understand in new and fun ways for any child who might struggle math. So if your child find math difficult, look to Score Learning Centers and their Math Tutors to help. I was paid for this post.

Well we didn't get our lights up, hopefully next weekend. We did go check Eric's traps at his parents house though. It's just an excuse to get our 4 wheeler out. It's fun riding around Eric's parent's land. Eric's getting really frustrated because he's not catching anything in his traps. He's reading a bunch of magazine articles about it and asking everyone he knows what he's doing wrong. Last week he had 4 out of the 8 traps set off. So at least there's been activity around them. Oh well, better luck next time.
Working in an educational setting, I realize that not all students learn at the same rate, or in the same manner. That’s why it’s important to have people out there who care how your student is performing academically. Let the people at Innovative Tutor help your child to learn in a fun and original way. I was paid for this post.
Praise the Lord for a day off!!! They are few and far between sometimes in my line of work. I'd like to get our outside Christmas lights up today. We'll see how motivated Eric is when he gets out of bed. We always put colored icicle lights up around our roof. I'd like to put normal colored lights around our windows that face the road too. I LOVE CHRISTMAS!!! It's my favorite time of year. I love to buy presents and give them to people. That's the hard part is waiting for Christmas day to actually give people their presents.

I wish I didn't have to work today because my brother in law wrestles for Iowa State University and they had the Iowa State Open today. It is always a great tournament to go watch. There are a lot of division I, division II, division III and NAIA schools there. It's a huge tournament. He just got cleared to wrestled to last Thursday the 8th of November. He's been battling a bulging disc in his neck for the past year. But the doctors think he's healthy enough to wrestle now. Good job Aron!
Do you need a new car? Or do you just want something different to drive everyday? Maybe you want something a little more reliable that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. If that’s the case, than have I got something for you. You can get a Honda Car Quote and compare prices with by letting dealers compete for your business. Plus you can get up to 2 quotes free. It’s fast and free. They also offer car loans, car refinancing, auto insurance, and auto warranty right there on their site. Another added bonus to using carsblvd.com is that you’ll never have to pay full price for a new car again! I was paid for this post.
Game starts in 11 minutes. I hate road games, but at least we'll get home at a good time. It's a noon game so we should get home by 6 or 7. That's awesome. We can all still go out and do something on Saturday night. Yeah, like we'll do anything. We'll probably rent a movie and order a pizza. That's the extent of most of our weekends. We're old people. We never do anything exciting.
So we leave at 7:00 AM to go to Quincy, Illinois to play football today. They have the same record as we do, so hopefully we'll win. It's the last game of the season so it would be nice to go out with a win. OH IT'S SOOOOOOOOO EARLY!!! I hate getting up early. Especially just to drive another 2.5 hours to get to a game that I have to work at for the next 5 or 6 hours. UGGGG LONG DAY AHEAD!!!

Eric and I picked out the tuxes. We're using the camo vests that I blogged about earlier. The guys are wearing just tradional black tuxes with black shoes. The guys are wearing black shirts with black long ties. Eric is wearing a black tux, ivory shirt, black long tie and camo vest. They are going to look very sharp! I can't wait to see him in it. He will look soooooooo sexy!!! We also ordered our bridesmaid dresses yesterday so they'll be in the middle of January sometime. I am getting so excited for my wedding!

So I'm pretty excited about this afternoon. Eric and I are going to pick out tuxes and our programs for the wedding. I hope Eric and I can agree on the tuxes. He originally said that he wanted to get bow ties because no one does that anymore, but I was like lets think about that. But if that's what he really wants than I let it fly. He hasn't had an opinion on much that I've been doing, so the least I could do is let him pick out the tuxes.
When I get bored, I love to shoot my friends. You read me right. I love to shoot my friends, with paintballs of course. I recently heard about this great company that is a top of the line online paintball store. They sell all the great brands of paintball guns like Tippmann, Spyder, Smart Parts, Dye, Empire, Draxxus paintball gear plus many more brands which you can find on their website. Their top selling guns are Tippmann A-5, Tippmann 98 Custom, Smart Parts Ion, Spyder Pilot ACS. And best of all, they offer the best prices AND FREE SHIPPING AND HANDLING. So when you want to shoot your friends look to the guys and Ultimate Paintball to assist you with anything you might need concerning paintballs, paintball guns and any other accessory you might need.

Our men's and women's varsity basketball teams play tonight at 6 PM and 8 PM. The girls are playing amazing lately. Our women's jv basketball team won last night. I haven't seen the guys play yet, but they are always fun to watch. My dad coached wrestling for the past 17 years so I never watched basketball a lot, but it's pretty entertaining.
Are you looking for a new job? Or maybe you are looking to make some extra spending money? Well if that’s true than have I got an opportunity for you. I’m talking about Talent Rock. They are talent agents looking for models, singers, actors, dancers and comedians. It’s this year’s industry event so DON’T MISS IT!!! I was paid for this post.
TGIF!!! But that statement doesn't really ring true to me since I usually work 7 days a week. But it's still nice to do just games and practices on the weekends and not worry about teachers and professors being around. Luckily they don't usually bother us though so that's nice. I have to go to the football game on Saturday in Quincy Illinois. It should be a good game, I'm hoping since it's the last game of the season.

While talking with my friend Stacie she told me of a great opportunity that she had discovered recently. She said that her and her whole family were all blogging and using Pay Per Post to earn some extra money. She said that I could get paid to do something that I was already taking part in. I could get paid to blog. I thought was a fantastic idea!!! I could make some extra money for my wedding, and of course for our honeymoon, which are both taking place in March of 2008. I could also use the extra cash to pay for Christmas gifts since Christmas is only 34 days away. I began blogging to express my feelings. I use it as a diary, kind of. It’s nice to be able to write things that are on my mind and know that I won’t be ridiculed for my beliefs and opinions. Another reason that I love to Pay Per Post is that I can make extra money while I write blogs during my slow times at work or when I bored at home. If you are looking for an easy way to earn a few extra dollars, whether it be for Christmas gifts, everyday bills or just some extra spending money, I highly recommend using Pay Per Post. It’s fun, easy and very fast. I got paid for this post.
The game starts in 11 minutes. The guys are all jacked up!!! That's a good sign. The games that I have worked that they have been flat before the game, they have lost bad. Hopefully everyone will do well and no one will get injured. I hate road games when people get hurt, I hate it anytime when they get hurt but especially on the road. You never know where the hospital is or what kind of service you'll get once you get there. Oh well, hopefully I won't have to worry about any of that.
I don't have to be at work till 1:00 PM today because I have to work a women's jv basketball game. Our girls are actually good this year. The varsity team has started out 2 and 0. Which is 1 less game than they won in all of last year. Crazy huh?!? It's nice for them to be winning. I know a lot of girls left the team and the school because of basketball. Hopefully we can keep all these new girls around. And to top it all off, we only have one senior. That's great.
Have you ever wondered what to get your employees for the perfect gift? Are you a person that likes to be outside? Do you know what you are getting the person that has everything. I recommend getting them a beach cruisers. It’s a great way for them to have fun in the sun alone or with their families on their day off. I got paid for this post.

Today is a busy day. We host the semifinals for the MCC volleyball tournament. We also have our wrestle offs last night and tonight. The finals are just tonight though so there shouldn't be too many matches, 6 I think as long as all the guys that won last night continue to win tonight. Since volleyball is seeded #1 and we're #1 in the conference out right, regardless if we win or lose, we continue on to the regional tournament. Pretty cool huh?!?
Is your garage floor in need of repair? Does your garage floor have more cracks in it than the side of a mountain? Is your garage floor stained? Or do you just want to update the look of your garage floor? Well if you answered yes to any of these questions than a new garage floors might be for you. New garage floors can be cleaned up and sealed and look brand new again. Even old, cracked, stained floors can be cleaned and covered to look better than when they were first finished. I got paid for this post.

So I'm pretty sad today. Eric and I had our engagement pictures last night, which were really fun. But it got me thinking about how all of my grandparents are deceased and I only have my stepgrandpa. My mom's dad died when she was seven so this is the only grandpa that I knew on my mom's side, but he's changed since my grandma died last year. He's dating this woman none of us care for and he's never around anymore. We used to go to their house on Sundays to visit them and now if you stop over he's always at her house. My dad's dad died my senior year of high school. That was a bad one. Then 16 months later my dad's mom died. I still get really upset when I let myself think about them. I won't have any grandparent at my wedding or the birth of my children. It's been a rough couple of days to say the least.
Saturday, November 3, 2007
Well I'm in the middle of the suckiest day of the year. I was here at 11 am to work 2 basketball games, one game was at 1pm and the other game was at 3pm. Then we have are one and only night football game of the season tonight at 6pm. So the guys have been in and out of here all day. Then to top that all off we host the first round of the MCC tournament tonight at 7pm for volleyball. So it's been a busy day. Right now I'm just waiting for the volleyball game to start. We won both basketball games and kickoff is about to take place. The volleyball game should go pretty fast because we won the conference out right and we are playing the #9 seed. So I'll keep my fingers crossed that this goes fast. I'M READY TO GO HOME!!!
