Then when I got back from Detroit I got to go to Los Angeles for work, which also mean that I got to stop in Vegas on the way home again!! It was so awesome. Lindsay came out to Los Angeles while I was there and we got to go to the beach. We didn't really get to enjoy it that much (together) though because I had to work Thursday allllllllll day (like 12 hours), and then right when I left work we headed straight to Vegas. Robbie got there like 2 hours after we did so we got another weekend together! It was the bomb. I just got back early Tuesday morning and the jet lag hasn't been that bad surprisingly. This morning I was exhausted and could have slept for about a million more hours though.
So, needless to say I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut off ever since I got back. I had tons to do and take care of since I have been gone, and I have been SO busy at work - it has been freaking awesome!!!! I love being busy at work! LOVE it! And guess what? I got two more awards! I am the shiznit! And they both came with money. OMG I was so excited when I got that news yesterday. LOL. I think I might treat myself to a new coach wristlet or something. YES!

Needing to get to the other side, the first man prayed : 'God, please give me the strength to cross the river.' Poof! .... God gave him big arms and strong legs and he was able to swim across in about 2 hours, having almost drowned twice.
After witnessing that, the second man prayed : 'God, please give me strength and the tools to cross the river.' Poof! .... God gave him a rowboat and strong arms and strong legs and he was able to row across in about an hour after almost capsizing once.
Seeing what happened to the first two men, the third man prayed: 'God, please give me the strength, the tools and the intelligence to cross the river.' Poof! .... He was turned into a woman.
She checked the map, hiked one hundred yards up stream and walked across the bridge.

Second, I had a dream last night about a lion attacking someone. Where the heck does that come from? I don't know. I need to lay off the crack.
Third, I pulled my quad last night playing softball - the first time I was at bat. OMG I was so annoyed. I limped to my car and proceeded to ice it for the rest of the night. It feels better today; as long as I don't make any fast moves I think I'll be okay. Being injured is so annoying though. Ugh. On top of that I am just all around sore from kickboxing on Tuesday. Okay that's enough of the complaints in that category.
Fourth, I thought this article: No Crisis Is Immune From Exploitation Under Bush, written by Hillary Clinton, was really interesting. It is about government contracting, and considering I work for a government contractor it was of course of special interest to me. It's also really well written and has an omg factor to it.
Fifth, how about this article: Questions for Rich Rodriguez, about our wonderful Wolverine football team that will take the field for their first game on August 30. Omg I can't handle this stress. Personally I really don't give a poop if they are like a family as long as they win games.
Finally, I ALREADY CHECKED IN AND PRINTED MY BOARDING PASS CUZ I AM GOING TO BE HOME IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WOOT!

I actually really liked the other place better that I went to, Kim's Karate, about a month ago. It was more fun, the atmosphere was better, and I liked the music better. The only problem is that it is really far away from where I live and work, and it is ridiculously expensive. So unfortunately that place is out. So I guess I am going to just check out some gyms that are around where I live and make sure they offer kickboxing. Probably not until it starts to get cold though, because I hate going to the gym during the summer. I'd rather run outside in the sweltering heat.
Okay this is moderately depressing but check out this article about the Big 3. Now they're saying they might go bankrupt. I can't believe it's gotten this far. Poor Detroit.

On another note...only 2 more days and I will be headed to DETROIT!!! OMG I am so excited. I cannot wait to see everyone and FINALLY FINALLY FINALLY see my boyfriend. I'm on pins and needles with excitement. I'm sure Robyn and Mark's wedding is going to be tons of fun, as well as ther rest of the weekend!! Woot!
Alright I have nothing else exciting to talk about.

Another Monday where I am not in a foul mood? Whoa this is like getting seriously crazy people!! I don't know what's up lately. LOL. I'm just going to go with it, though. Yup.
I finished reading A Thousand Splendid Suns on Friday. It was really good, even though it was sad and I cried in some parts. Other than that I was at the pool relaxing and what not during the day. I went to two new restaurants this weekend. On Saturday, we went to Carribean Breeze for Jessi's birthday celebration. It was so yummy. It says it is "nuevo latino" food, and omg it was soooo good. I really liked it. I ate so much they almost had to roll me to the bar afterwards. Sunday we went to Bonefish Grill, which was also totally amazing and yummy. I can't wait to eat my leftovers for dinner! Overall it was a great weekend for shoving my face. LOL.
Well not much else to talk about really. I already finished my final exam for school, so that is totally awesome. Did I already mention that I am so glad I don't have to go to class tomorrow?! I am going to see the new X-Files movie tomorrow night instead! Sounds like a much better way to spend an evening rather than death-by-powerpoint.
And tonight I am going to start packing to go to DETROIT ON FRIIIIDAAAAAYYYYYYY!!!!!!! Can you tell I'm excited?
Finally, this picture made me laugh, so I thought I would share it:

Last night I got my hair done and it looks awesome. I freaking love my hairstylist. She's the bomb (and is from MI!). Whenever I go in there she tells me she wants to hear about my life because she thinks it is exciting. That makes me laugh, but I'm glad she thinks so. LOL. I guess since she is a single mom so she really doesn't have time to do much besides chill with her daughter (16 mos). Then I got to experience one of my favorite things ever about getting my hair did - getting my hair washed by someone else. Aaaaangghh if I won the lottery I would pay someone to wash my hair for me every day. It's awesome. Or, I suppose I could persuade my future husband to do it. Yes, that sounds more affordable. LOL.
Speaking of babies, did you hear about this fool who posted a YouTube video about poisoning baby food? He said he couldn't be caught. Um, just a thought - YOU POSTED IT ON THE FREAKIN' INTERNET!!!! HELLLOOOOOOOO!!!! He was arrested Thursday. Now some village is missing it's idiot.
