Just your (un)average girl

Just a girl enjoying what life has to offer. I love to cook and laugh. I live this life along side a wonderful man and an amazing and crazy family. Life is just crazy and I am strapped in and ready to enjoy!


Gosh, there has been a lot of bad things in the news recently. 

I guess sometimes i just notice it more than others. 

"The day care hit and run" that is all over the place is right down from my house… like 30 seconds from where i used to work. 

Just so sad and awful and i feel horrible for the person that their car was hit and they were forced into running over children. I don’t think i could come back from that, honestly. 

I know there is good things out there but just sad all the news that is happening around us too. 

In other “new” I really like this other department at work. Shadowed again yesterday and i want in, but no openings right now. I think hiring freeze until June.  I can wait. I ain’t skured. 

I am really looking forward to the weekend even though I have nothing planned. My dog went to the vet yesterday and i came home with $250 less to my name, so not really thinking i am going too crazy this weekend. 

I told my sister (and mom bc she was with my sister) that I think i would like an elliptical (used even) for my birthday. 

Gotta get back in the game and the schedule isn’t allowing me to go to the gym, so… I will put one in my living room.  

God, please help me to use this and not turn it into a clothing rack.

So the thing is… i never/ haven’t applied for the bakery job.. yet.  I don’t know why. Maybe i am just pushing it off because i do not think i will get the offer. Or maybe i will get the offer and have to turn it down bc it wouldn’t pay enough. 

In other news, i did shadow a job position at work and another one tomorrow- to see if i like what they do if a position ever opened up.  And I did! I liked it a lot and think i would be a good fit for that area.

 So there is that flip side. 

Listen, i know i am in FL and everyone else had a crap- tastic winter, but the mornings and humidity are already getting unbearable here, so i am not looking forward to this summer. I mean, it was 75 and HUMID at 0630 this morning and it is just April.  The.beginning.of.April. 

Did I mention i have no AC in my Jeep either right now, working to rectify that situation ASAP. 

So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.

For the last two day my computer at work has failed me and ever IT person that has touched it.
Today I am rocking a snazzy loaner but missing two of my three email accounts still.
Is it Friday yet?

So in re: to my last post. I just was like screw it there is ONE bakery I could see myself working for and why not snoop around and see if they are hiring.  And i went to their FB page and 30 min ago they posted that they were looking for more help, FT and PT… and to send resumes. 

I have an all- business resume. 

Nothing that says I can bake. 

I have no idea how to spin this, but i have to try… 

So most of you know that The Man works odd hours and for the most part we make it work. 

It works now because i work 7-4 and am home by 5 to eat with him before he is asleep no later than 6. So  this seems like a dream come true (sarcasm), but if i happen to want to take any other position in this company, i am looking at a standard 8-5 and see him maybe Tuesday and Sat nights and Sunday. And i think that would suck. So i just am waiting until the right opportunity arises. I know he doesn’t want to hold me back and quiet frankly, i cannot be held back.. but it is something i have to think about. 

I just want a vacation. But now i have to wait for his job to give him his ONE week that he gets.. oh, and i do not have any money, minor issue. 

I am just struggling with his job and hours and feeling like i get to see him sleep more than anything else. Just having a day is all…

Anywho.. i think it is only crazy that my dream job if i were to get some say in life.. would to be to work at a bakery- like a fun come to work, be creative and make money kinda place… and if i did work for such a place.. then I would get to work pretty much the same hours as The Man.. so everything would actually work out great.

Only issue is that said job does not exist. There are no bakeries like that - that i know of around here or would give me the time of day as a baker. 

Pecan and Potato Chip cupcakes. My sis loved her’s and I have to admit they are pretty darn good- coworkers are in for the benefit too

In case you were wondering, butterscotch is not the easiest thing to make.

Burnt my batch for my Sis’ bday cupcakes… Boohiss

In other news, I made the pecan and potato chip cake already and some homemade turkey sausage and gravy /biscuits for breakfast.

I wish I had more time for Sundays.
