Great night!

Last night we went to see Trans-Siberian Orchestra live in concert. We took my parents for their Christmas present. I'm not sure they enjoyed it as much as the hubs and I did! I think my dad fell asleep during the first half of the concert!!! But I would recommend that everyone go see them in concert!

Disappointed and let's eat ice cream!

Ok, a year ago tomorrow, the hubs did the sweetest thing for me. He bought me Celine Dion tickets for her concert here in KC tonight. So I've been planning and getting excited for this concert. I have wanted to see her in concert since 1992 when I heard her first song on the radio. Yes, I still remember this! So Tuesday night, after my parents took me to dinner for my birthday, my dad calls me. He tells me that I'm "not going to your concert on Saturday." Knowing my dad, I thought he was yanking my chain. He wasn't. No, she is sick and has postponed several shows. Now. I've had my tickets for a year now. I have to wait 2 more months before she comes back to KC. I've been bummed all week about this. At least I still get to go, but I am still disappointed!!!

For my birthday from my parents, I got a Cuisenart Ice Cream freezer! I've already made 2 batches. An Orange Sherbet, but it was REALLY sour. And today, I made an Egg Nog ice cream. It's still in the freezer waiting for the hubs to get home from work!

Today I went and had blood drawn a second time. Checking progesterone levels again. My doctor thinks everything has been working, just double checking up one everything. My temperature has been up for about 10 days now. So, we're just waiting to see the results from this blood test.

Rude and inconsiderate people...

Ok, so I work part time at a retail clothing store. I started as a favor to a friend for the summer and have continued through the fall, it's my yarn spending money! I can buy what I want and not have to feel quilty! Anyway, I know the job expectations and requirements of this position. Help customers, put clothes away, keep the store clean, etc. However, there comes a point where the people that come in are just rude and inconsiderate. I understand that people come to a store, try one clothes and don't buy everything they try one. But seriously, DO THEY HAVE TO THROW THE CLOTHES ON THE FLOOR?!?!?!? I walk into the fitting rooms several times on a daily basis and it looks like my bedroom as a teenager. Clothes and hangers EVERYWHERE!! Do people not have any respect for their fellow man that they can't even hang the clothes back up? Or at the vary least, fold them and lay them on the bench in the fitting room? While I do work at the store, I'm not their maid. Today it was from a 12-year old child. What are we teaching our children?

Ok, thanks for listening to my ranting and raving. Going to bed now!

House plans.........

The hubs and I have spent a while trying to find the perfect house for us. I know, with the market as a buyers market, you'd think it wouldn't be that difficult. But having a grandfather who taught construction and is a former licensed home inspector and a father who has built more houses than I can count makes it difficult to find one that meets their standards. So, I was posed with another option. I was offered to buy some land from my dad! And the hubs agreed. We are going to buy 10 acres and build a house. YEAH!!!! So we have been looking at plans, I think we may have found one that will fit our needs. We are altering it a bit and then by grandfather will design it for us and draw the plans. Now we just have to do the legal stuff in buying the land first.
