After I grew up I always used to think that dressing up for Halloween was kinda dumb. "Why would we want to be something we are not" I always used to say to myself. Then I met Debbie and along with most things in my life, she changed the way I think. I look forward to Halloween.... from carving pumpkins, decorating AND dressing up. I remember the first time I came home to her in the condo in Logan just after she decorated and it just put a smile on my face and felt so homey.
So for a couple of weeks (and probably longer) Debbie had this plan on what we were going to be and how we were going to dress. So put it all together Saturday and went and had some fun with our friends. Debbie helps keep me young :)

We were at Barnes and Noble the other day and we were reading a book on Colombia and the places we will visit on this trip...and I thought this travel tip was one of the best I have ever heard.
Obviously I have always taken a "copy" of my passport with me but I have never thought about scanning it in to the computer and emailing it to myself.. DUH... this means I could pull up a copy of my passport any where I am in the world..
I am not always the sharpest tool in the shed but I know a good idea when I get one..
Countdown to Colombia.. 4 MONTHS.. woot woot!

"is Sam REALLY this nice"
The simple answer is YES..Is our relationship perfect.. HELL NO.. but I can honestly say Sam and I do NOT have a roller coaster relationship. We have never been in an argument that has made us not talk to each other, and we have never broken up. From the second we met it was GO!!
Sam and I had an argument about something (i don't even remember what Now) and Sam said something that hurt my feelings and right away he knew he hurt my feelings. He walked over to me and gave me a hug and said "THAT BROKE MY HEART!!!" He always says he remembers that moment when I looked at him and he could tell that he hurt me and he HATED that feeling.. Ya he is truly this nice!
...but he chews ice!

The other day Sam and I were driving home and I said to Sam. "So we are just an old married couple"!!! I know that sounds a little Mayberry but it's exactly how I feel. We know each other's quirks, we have pressed out the wrinkles in our relationship and it is kinda like wearing an old pair of jeans... VERY COMFORTABLE. and to everyone that has been single or in a bad relationship recently COMFORTABLE IS A VERY VERY GOOD THING..
so this week I am going to dedicate my blogging to Sam and I.. and our relationship and things I LOVE and things that we don't quite have perfected yet.. (probably because I have nothing better to do because Sam is in Atlanta, Georgia for the week and I am a little bored)
If Sam and I were boats in the ocean.. Sam would defiantly be the great big cruise ship.. Slow, steady and right on pace. Knowing exactly where it's going, when it has to be to its destinations, and know exactly how to get there.. I would be the jet ski... Fluttering around, jumping the cruise ship waves, and wanting to slide into the beach doing mock 90.. but damn would I have a great time while doing it..
This is Sam and I.. If things aren't exciting I usually don't want much to do with it... and Sam loves excitement but he is probably to cautious... So this works for us. Sam always says that my spontaneity keeps things fun and fresh and I always say I need someone EXACTLY like Sam to keep my jet ski on track... cuz I seem to zip away occasionally if I don't have something to "anchor" me...
So here is to the rest of our life of happy "boating"!

Its that time of year again for NACS. I leave for an entire week and its the longest time that I ever leave Debbie and the kids. I hate leaving for that long. So being in the Convenience store business I get to go to the largest trade show of its kind. NACS has thousands of vendors set up booths and try to sell their product. Since I am over Petroleum Services at Maverik I get to look at anything and everything to do with Fuel Pricing, Dispensing, Price Signs, outside customer service items like Red Box, Air Machines, Pay Phones (yes we still have them), Propane tanks, Car Washes, Garbage Cans, Windshield Wash etc.... Oh yeah I am also in charge of the Automotive items in side the store like Oil, Additives, Air Fresheners etc... Yeah its a good thing I have 2 assistants to keep me organized (they are awesome)
So hear I go again. The only thing my family looks forward to is I bring back enough samples of anything I can cram in my suit case from Candy, drinks, sun glasses, air fresheners, t-shirts... you name it, its there.
So here is to another trip.... I love you Debbie and I will miss you and the kids. I will bring back lots of goodies for you.

I ask if you get offended easily or are my Mom or Mother in Law that you may want to stop reading right now because I am on a soap box.
So getting Botox and people like "me" are what is wrong with American women today.. hmmm.. okkk... where do I start.. I don't know how to so I will just tell you a few things about this arrogant "bitch" I think I was called...
- FIRST I AM NOT THE ONE JUDGING OTHER WOMEN.. I think the obvious comments below is people judging women who don't do EXACTLY what they do.
- I had 3 kids by the time I was 30 years old.
- I had BOTH breast removed due to breast cancer at 27.
- I had a hysterectomy by 33.
- So if you don't have boobs or a uterus does that still make you a woman?
- I have been divorced not ONCE but twice. So really far from a "perfect" life.
- Sometime in my mid 30's I had a couple years I went off my rocker... seriously think complete mental break down and had to redefine myself for a few years.
- the Botox post was NOT about weight.. It was about wrinkles between my eyes!!!
- I have stretch marks, cellulite and am 10lbs heavier than I was in high school.
- I stay at home and cook dinner almost every night and do all the laundry.. Just because I don't work out side of the house does NOT mean I don't work..
- Yes I have lost some weight the last year but I struggle with weight just like most women.
- from my chin to my hips I look like Frankenstein.. I have had things tied, taken off, put back on and all together removed.
- I have chin hairs and toe hair..
- My girls and my step daughters are beautiful women no matter WHAT SIZE THEY ARE, and if they decide to do chin implants, boob implants, and butt implants... good for them if it makes them feel efing better about themselves... GO FOR IT!
I think you get my frustration with your comments (some so bizarre I did not post). So if a little fricken botox and hair dye pisses you off..... YOU CAN KISS MY SIZE 8 ASS!!!
