Music Boxes

Grandma Sue gives me a music box every year for Christmas. So at this point (for another few days) I have 21 music boxes. For the last four years since I moved to Nampa, they have all been sitting in a box under my parents house :( Before that I had most of them up in my closet at home, but not exactly displayed! However, I finally have the room to do so! This year, they are lining the fireplace...I love it! Can't wait to see which one I get this year!

It's finally here...

I am offically done with school! No more papers to turn in, no more tests to take, no more class! Crazy!! This is my first weekend without homework hanging over my is amazing. Although I constantly catch myself feeling guilty! I feel like there should be something I'm doing! I cannot belive how freeing it is...I feel like I've accomplished more in the last 2 days then I have in years! My entire house is clean, deep cleaned! I organized all the closets, and rearranged my room. I've made fudge, stuffed shells, choc. chip cookies, and peppermint the last 24 hours :) I've spent more time hanging out with friends and doing Christmasy things then I thought possible. And in with all of that I've found the time to watch a few Christmas movies, read a book and oh yes, update my blog :) haha. It's been awhile.
I leave for wenatchee on Christmas Eve, unfortunately I have to work all day so I fly out at 4 and am scheduled to land in Spokane...lets hope they don't receive another 24 inches of snow in the next few days! If I have to spend Christmas Eve in the airport somewhere I'm going to be very sad :) I am so looking forward to going home and spending the weekend with just my family. And then...the day after Christmas, Katelyn is moving from Seattle/Wenatchee to Nampa, into my house!! I'm so excited! We've been talking about living together for years, and never knew when it would happen. Well it has finally arrived! I can't wait!!
Merry Christmas everyone! Have a wonderful time celebrating the birth of our savior!

The ponderings...

Its December?! And there is no snow! In fact I am wearing a t-shirt today, this is crazy!

I have been really frustrated at work lately, not because of work or because of my job. Just the atmosphere and how often I step into a converstaion and realize the entire exchange is based on talking bad about someone else. Aren't we supposed to be adults?
There are so many instances when the whole discussion during lunch is how someone did this and isn't that the stupidest thing you ever heard! But the problem is all simply because whatever was done isn't the way he would have done it. Basically if you think something other then he does, you are wrong and stupid. He spends all his time talking about the idiots around here and how all these people have wronged him or done something they shouldn't have. It is driving me crazy! I do not want to spend my break time listening to people complain and tear down other people. I am tired of feeling mad everytime I get up and leave the break room. I don't want to listen to it anymore...but I really have no idea what to do about it. I am just sick of people putting everything in a negative light. Why can't we be content with who we are, understand that everyone is different, celebrate the different traditions and methods we all have...and learn from each other? Is it really so much to ask?!
