What the HECK!?!?!?

I am so frustrated right now!!!! I can not even describe it. So, about a month ago we took our car down to Sears Auto Center to get new shocks and struts and an alignment. It hasn't even been a full month and the alignment is already SO off. I took it back today and they said that there were some bent parts underneath and all this stuff and that the only way that POSSIBLY could have happened was for me to get in a wreck or run over something really big. Well, NEITHER of those have happened, in fact, we haven't even hardly driven the car. I put about 10 miles on the car each day. I'm not sure how this could have happened. After getting over dealing with the Sears guys, I took the car to Big O and they told me the same thing. What the HECK!!! Trevor and I are both so pissed off right now. And they said we need new tires.... of course. Now they have me worried that I'm going to get a blowout before Trevor gets home in 4 days. Trevor is worried about that too and he told me to make sure I know how to get the spare out and know where the jack is and stuff just in case.

We are going to go down to sears again when he gets back and chew them out (we think they did something to our car, because we haven't done anything to it, and no one else has driven it) and make them do something for free, or at least cheap. Wow.... I'm glad I got that all out. I actually feel a LITTLE better now than I did a few minutes ago. In fact, I have been so irate the whole day about the whole thing that I have cried a few times just to let out some of the frustration. Ok I'm done now.

I found out today that the father of one of my good friends just passed away. I just want to tell Geneava that I'm so sorry for your loss. I don't have any idea of what you are feeling right now, but I am so sorry. You and your family are in our prayers. We love you!

One more

I still have one more week by myself until Trevor comes back. I'm excited beyond words to see him again. It feels like it has been forever. Luckily my new job it keeping me busy and taking up some time. For those who don't know, I now work for NuSkin in Provo putting labels on products and such. It is money.... not really my dream job. I did however have an interview today for another job at UVSC, (soon to be UVU) which will be so much better than this. I'm a little doubtful though. They didn't seem too impressed that I was going to be starting classes again in August....... how dumb is that? I thought school was supposed to be good and don't you think that because they have students working there, they would be a little more flexible with school schedules and all? It's all a little confusing to me...If I don't get it, I guess I can TOLERATE getting up at 5:30 am for the next 2 months.

Missing Trevor

So it has been one week since Trevor left for California. We are both ready for this training to be over. This is a picture of him there because he was bored and had nothing to do besides take pictures and send them to me. ( I will post some more pictures later.) They never have enough to keep them busy. I wish they would just let them come home.

Maid of Honor....

I went and saw this movie last night with my mom and sister. It was so cute. I really liked it. I just love chick flicks. But it made me really miss Trevor. I thought I was doing really good until today when I go to talk to him for about 3 minutes and then he had to go. It was like putting freshly baked brownies in front of me and only letting me get a whiff of them and then eating them all in front of me. It was pretty much just hi, i love you, bye. Now the ARMY gets to have him for 2 more weeks. I'm so lonely.

Soldier Boy

My soldier left me today for three weeks. This is the longest that we have had to be apart since we were married. Needless to say, I'm having a little bit of a hard time with it. But I will make it through. For those who don't know, he is in the Army Reserves and his MOS is Petroleum Supply Specialist. He has been in for about 4 years now and has 4 years to go. I'm ready for it all to be over. He was showing me all his stuff last night, unfortunately I didn't get one of the gas mask. It was pretty cool.... never seen one in real life... just in the movies. But it does sound like Darth Vader a little.

In preparation for going he also shaved his head. He hates having long hair, especially during the summer. He says he is too lazy to comb it. So here are some before and after pictures. He thought he kinda looked like a cancer patient or something. I like it.... Baby soft smooth :)

I'm pretty disappointed with the rain today. I was trying to plant a garden... I don't know how exactly i endeavored to do that...... but i don't want to go out side now. However, it probably would be the optimal time to plant my flowers and then let the rain do it's magic. For some strange reason I am getting way to excited about the whole thing. I've never really gardened before, and I HATE doing yard work. I'm afraid i'm not going to keep it up and all my flowers will just die. Maybe if my enthusiasm keeps up I will end up with a beautiful flower garden. Hopefully it will at least be an improvement from this. There were so many rocks in there....

Dirty Work

So, Trevor is a diesel mechanic. He loves what he does. He found this engine at his Dad's shop and we fired it up. Check it out....
