Football season has arrived!

Today is the first day of college football! Yay! ROLLLLL Tide ROLL! For those of you who do not know, that chant belongs to the infamous, University of Alabama Crimson Tide in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. I've been an Alabama football fan since I was little. My dad was an Alabama football fan and my family has been ever since. We only allow Auburn (our state rival) to exist just because we're the nice team. :-) And we're sooooo much better and our colors are prettier too! But all across the country, football fans will be mesmorized and preoccupied from this weekend on into November for the ULTIMATE competition. Unless you're a National Champion from 2007, all slates are wiped clean and everyone, despite what the POLLS say are on even terms. You can be number 3 this week and drop to number 11 the next. You could be back up to number 5 the next. Your performance has to be at it's height. Today everyone expects Alabama to be beat by Clemson. I say HA! We never lose the first game. Don't underestimate the power of the Tide. We've got the fire and determination and frankly we're just going to win today. 

I forgot to blog yesterday. But nothing exciting happened anyway so, you didn't miss anything. I'm off to get an Alabama t-shirt and to buy food. The game is at 7 central and the state is hyped and on edge. There are butterflies in the stomachs of all true Tide Fans. Today could be the beginning of the best season ever. Only time will tell. So I must leave and get prepped. Until tomorrow, I say to you..ROLLLLL Tide ROLL oh and ciao!

Today Was Good.

You know when have those days that are just good, not great and definitely not bad? Well, that was today. It was my last day of work and it was sad because I will miss everyone. They were like a family to me. So caring and genuine. There is no other company like them and I will NEVER work for a company like them. They took me out to lunch and we just sat and talked like it wasn't ending. Like we would always be friends and have lunch and chat. They gave me a really, REALLY nice gift. No one has EVER done that for me at a job. $100 gift card to BELK. With Labor Day sales coming up, it will DEFINITELY be put to good use..hee hee. I will so miss them and love them.

I had an interview that went so well that it was scary. I was nervous about what I was going to say and how I was going to impress them. "Be Myself". That's how I didn't it. I finally said hey I've been doing this for 7 years. If they can't see my skills and my good work ethics and how great of a person I am, then it's on them. It went well. I wasn't nervous at all until towards the end, I had talked so much my breath became a little tart. But I'm sure they didn't smell I just told the truth and answered the questions. "Yes, I have done this." "No, I have no experience in this BUT I'm smart, I can learn if given the opportunity." And that's just what I shall do. 

I got two of my clients fantabulous scarf sets in the mail. I am marketing for her. A beautiful purple  and a yellow -
One for two celebrities names that I can't mention for fear I might get smited with a big stick. But it's fun. Oh by the way if you don't know, I am the owner of The next new marketing giant. Bwahahahaha! If you need help promoting or developing your business, call me. I am here to help. So, anyways, these sets will be sent out on the 8th of September. I can't wait for next months send out. The celebrity list is going to be even better. This is good, today is good. Now you  be good. :-) Ciao!

Today was solemn

Well, tomorrow is my last day of having a job. Today was a solemn day, sort of. I kept wanting to cry but then not wanting too because it feels stupid to do so. I know everything is under control but I am a worker. Not having a job just seems against my nature and who I am. The secretary kept hugging me and saying she was going to make up things for me to do so I could I wasn't sad until she started doing that. Everyone tried to keep me busy to keep my mind off it. Well, at least I get to go to lunch with everyone for a last hurrah. I almost don't want to because I have a feeling I'm going to cry and I don't want anyone to see me do so.

So, on to happier news. I am trying to get my bakery back on line and it's HARD and dadgumit, it's expensive. But I have a feeling that I am going to really well this year. My marketing strategy is going to be unreal. I need to make $800 a week to be able to not have a job and make this my full time job. I also have found some spaces downtown Birmingham, that I want to turn into my bakery. I REALLY want to do this full-time. It relaxes me and comforts me and it's mine. It's my creative outlet and it's my stamp in this little world. So, we'll figure out as time moves on.

Tomorrow I have an interview. I don't know what is going to happen, but I need it to further my bakery dreams. I need it to pay my bills! I need to do this for my family. I want to take care of my mom now. She's always taken care of us especially doing the difficult past 8 years after the loss of my father. So we ALL need this...

It Rained AGAIN!

So yes, it rained again. Thanks Fay! Come back again! *rolls eyes* I cannot wash clothes again, thanks to having a septic tank. I brought my lunch today to work so I wouldn’t have to go outside in the rain. Yummy baked chicken, a golden potato and a left over O’Charley’s roll. It was quite delightful. What made it even better is - I found a packet of Chick-Fil-A’s new sauce in my work drawer from last week. That stuff is so good. Well, my last day of work is Thursday. Being a contract drafter is not always so great. When they are done with you, they are done. They don’t really have to give you two weeks notice. But my company is really great so they did. Still, it stinks. I’m out of work for now. I do have an interview on Thursday for a drafting job so we’ll see what happens.

I refuse to talk to ANOTHER employment agency. All they want is a fee. They have no jobs for you. They want you to waste your time and gasoline, to come to their office and stare at you like you’re an alien. They proceed to talk down to you because you’re “unemployed.” Oh, and don’t tell them how much you really want for a salary, because they laugh in their heads. Sometimes, they laugh in your face. That’s when you squint one eye and give them the evil drop dead look. So, farewell agencies. I am done with you!

Well, tomorrow we’re supposed to go to, THE best Thai food restaurant in Birmingham. I love everything they have, BUT I will get the coconut soup and Thai Noodle Bowl. All for $7 bucks. I’ll have a glass of water because now that I am almost unemployed, that’s all I can afford. Maybe $1.25 for tip, if they are really good..hee hee. Okay well, this is all for today. It’s 11:30 pm, and I must get up tomorrow and stare at my computer for 8 hours and pretend to work. Ciao!

Who Am I?

I am going to share with you my high and lows of my eating experiences and I hope that you love them just as much as I do!
