Saturday night we went to a friend's house and pregamed with a little Rock Band 2. They have We Got the Beat on there which the girls all loved playing. It was really nice to get out and not just be with the boys. I should explain, normally its me and all of Chris' friends. Recently, we have all been spreading our wings and meeting new people. So there were other girls out with us on Saturday night which was pretty cool. I'm getting a little tired of all the guy talk. So anyhow, we went all went out to this bar we like called the Elbow Room. I crushed everyone at Big Buck Hunter (total redneck game that we would have loved to play at Glory Days). Not so much at Silver Strike. But got to meet some really cool people and I'm feeling more at home here.
Job is going really well. My company just took over a company in Cincinnati. Then a company went bankrupt in Texas and we scooped up a couple of their sales reps and are adding new accounts from there. I'm pretty excited about that because I know a lot of people have been losing their jobs and so I worry with the economy.
Well, speaking of job security, I better sign off here and get back to work!!!

Of course, this picture was when the sun was behind one of the tracting bars. Anyway, so the game was awesome. We crushed the Ravens. Theresa invited us back for another game so I guses we behaved. Next weekened, the Colts play the Packers and I'm sure that will be an interesting game for Chris and I. :-) Here is a picture of the Colts offensive line with Peyton looking like he is an outcast. LOL!

This weekend, Chris and I are celebrating our 2 year anniversary. I can hardly believe that I kept a guy around this long! He must be a keeper! For our anniversary, we are going to the Ravens/Colts game and we are sitting in style. A friend of mine happens to be engaged to one of the Colts players and she very nicely got us 2 tickets. We don't find out exactly where they are til Sunday, but I don't really care where they are, as long as I'm there. I'll definitely try to figure out how to post pictures on here after the game.
Alright, well, I guess its back to the grind for me. I'm working a huge project right now at work which feels really good. As if I didn't have a bad enough fear of getting fired and then the economy goes to hell so now I'm even more worried. Go stockmarket!!

Other than that, things are good here. Chris and I are doing very well. Chris got me the Wii Fit as a surprise a couple weeks ago so we're trying to lose weight. I feel like that commercial for whatever dietary supplement they are trying to get us to buy. Chris keeps dropping pounds and I will lose 2lbs and then gain 2lbs, then lose 2lbs, etc. But everyone says keep doing it and eventually my hard work will show.
This weekend, I'm going to my first backyard wedding. I'm not really sure what to wear. It's either going to be my overalls or my flannel dress from Target. Ha ha just kidding. But it should be fun. This couple is very into craft beers so I'm sure the alcohol will be fantastic. Too bad I'm not really drinking since I'm driving.
Anyway, that's really all for now. I'm going to Milwaukee for the fourth of July weekend. There is a huge summer concert series there so we're going to see Tom Petty, 311, and Stone Temple Pilots. We're also going to a Brewers game. There are going to be about 15 of us so it should be a really fun time. It's about a 4 hour drive there so you all know what that means!! No stopping! The new cruiser can go 7 hours without filling up. Go me!

Sunday we got up early to take our police escort to the race (ha all you peons that had to sit in traffic) and of course immediately walked to the track so we could view the "pagentry." It was awesome weather, not to hot, not too cold, no rain. Perfect!! Good race, a couple crashes in front of us. Both my guys in our pool went out about mid race almost at the same time. I believe on the same caution. Chris got a little toasty and might have lost his balance a couple times, but never actually fell. I made him buy a seat cushion which of course, got stolen. Not too many drunks this year or maybe b/c I was sober people weren't as amusing as usual.
Anywho, now I'm just trying to make time fly so this weekend will be here sooner. Chris and I are going to a baseball game on Friday night downtown. Always a good time and the best seats are $13. On Friday nights, they have fireworks after the game. Saturday night, Chris has challenged me to a Photo Hunt Competition with one of his friends. I'm a little worried because I haven't been training, but I think I can pull this off. People who think they are good haven't spent multiple hours after work playing this game. They don't even KNOW that you can hit above 400,000. Sunday we are hosting a mini BBQ in our courtyard. We are going to be playing cornhole and probably cooking brats. That's the thing to do out here, eat sausage and throw bean bags. I'm trying to decide on side dishes to serve. Any ideas?

Since then, I've been working a lot and finishing up my spring semester. I took my math final last night and I'm done til after Memorial Day weekend. Then I start up another crazy semester. I'm taking three class this time. Two of them are for two weeks each (Intro to Business and Business Law) and then I'm taking my computer class online for 10 weeks. We will see how that goes. I've been preparing for my trip back to Virginia. Chris and I are both very excited to go on our first major road trip together and talk about our feelings the whole time. Ha ha, actually, Chris is very excited. He loves Glory Days and all my friends and the area in general. He asked if we could move there. I just laughed. We all know how much of an effort was put into getting to the point I'm at now so I'm not moving ANYWHERE!!
Well, I have to finish up some things here before I leave the office for 5 whole days so see you all tomorrow night at the Hole!

So yeah, my new job. I love it. I'm working at a company called Cannon IV. They sell and service printers. I work in the contracts department. That pretty much means that I bill everyone and make sure their contracts are up-to-date. It's a lot of fun and it's along the lines of what I want to do so now I feel silly being back in school. Oh well.
BTW, I hate Algebra. I have a test tonight on Chapter 6 and then am learning all of Chapter 7 after the test. My next class, Tuesday, is the test for Chapter 7. I have 3 more tests til my final and only 5 more classes left. You do the math. Oh and did I mention that I have to my final early so that I can come home on the 8th? This summer I'm taking three classes in 10 weeks. We'll see how that goes. Two of them, Intro to Business and Business Law are each 5 week courses. Then I'm taking a computer class online for 10 weeks. Its my first online class and I'm pretty nervous about it because its different when you have to go to class and see a teacher. Its another thing to just let it all be my responsibility. I hope I stay focused!
Well, I better get back to work. Besides, staring at the computer screen is giving me a headache. I can't wait to eat some greasy food on my lunch break. That will cure me!
