Between training for my new position/job at the group home and preparing the retail store where I work for a visit from our CEO and other bigwigs, I am working 14-16 hour days.  It all started Monday and will last until Friday night.  I actually love being this busy and working this much...strange as it may seem.     The main reason I'm telling you this blogger friends is because this blog will be lacking a bit this week and probably part of next week.  I'll do my best to post a few fun things, but they'll have to be short and sweet.

In other news, I finally got my invitation to Birchbox. 
Hand-picked beauty and lifestyle samples, delivered to your door for $10/month.
I ordered the 3-month gift package for my little sister's (now belated) birthday present.  I know that she'll love it since she's much more into keeping herself up than I am.  Wow, that last statement makes me sound like a slob, but it just isn't worth waking up at 4:30a to doll myself up for a 6a shift working with kids.

The other biggest development in my life is a lazy one that I probably shouldn't be proud of/sharing.  I finally finished watching all 11 seasons of Cheers.
I remember watching Cheers as a kiddo.  Granted, it wasn't the original airing, but the Nick@Nite reshowing, but it still made it's way onto my "favorite TV shows" list.  

Since I finished Cheers, it was time to find something else to watch.  Every night when I crawl into bed, I'll throw a little something on the Netflix and unwind for an episode of two.  My newest choice is Parks and Recreation.
People have been telling me for quite some time to check this show out and so far, I'm pretty "meh" on it. In the interest in being completely upfront, I am only on the third episode.  Sometimes it takes me a bit to get into shows...heck, I didn't understand what the buzz about Glee was about until the fourth or fifth episode when we find out Sue's sister has...oops, almost threw a spoiler out there (also, it should be noted that I have only seen two seasons of Glee and cannot be held accountable for liking the show I hear it's becoming).

Anyway, there is a quick look into my busy life.  Hopefully fun and interesting things will find their way into my schedule, and blog, soon.


  1. I hated the first episodes I watched of Parks and Rec. Then, my parents raved about it in the second season, so I gave it another shot. The later seasons are like a whole different show! I love it.

  2. When I was little my parents made me go to bed when Cheers came on, but they'd often be so engrossed in it that I was able to sneak out the back door and go wander around the woods with the neighbor boys and their dog.
