-I had a couple run ins with Mr.NY today. Seriously, he is the nicest guy I have EVER worked with!! I had a stack of forms that needed to be returned to another side of the office. From my office door I was looking at who I could hand them off to, since I was the only one in my department answering the phones. As I was surveying over the drivers, he came out of no where and snatched them from me saying, "Where do they go? I'll take them." JUST LIKE THAT?! I was dumbfounded. I didn't know what to say or do. Afterwards he came over to talk to me about helping me out with some daily mailing of serves. Why is this man single?! Why hasn't any woman tried to take this man off the market!??! HELLO?! Wow....
-I got to speak about the Temple tonight at Relief Society's Enrichment night. I teared up...(typical) I was just so overcome by the spirit. I truly love the temple. I love the peace and solace I can find there.
-We did a 'heart attack' to an 18 y/o girl who hasn't been doing so well. To explain what a 'heart attack' is.....basically you write a short message on a paper heart cut out and "attack" that person's door with it--it's just a small way to let that person know they're loved and being thought of. Well, about 10 of us went to this girl's front door and were plastering hearts all over her front porch. 2 minutes into it, her father opened the door and said "AH-HA!!" We all paniced and started running towards our cars.....except for me.
I turned around and followed the first girl I could see. Let me remind you that it was DARK and I could NOT see, for the life of me, where I was running to!!! I was just anticipating a hole, that I was eventually roll my ankle into and then I'd be down for the count, with a mouth full of grass!!! We made it off the grass and I was still running after Katie....all the way back to her car!! I thought about jumping in it but all of my stuff was in my friend Kristen's car---5 houses in the OTHER direction!! By this point, everyone had gotten into the right cars and were getting ready to drive off! I, on the other hand, had to do the walk of shame up the block back to Kristen's car. I was trying to play it off as though I just happened to be taking an evening stroll. Yeah right! I would have ran, but seriously it was pitch black!! I did NOT need to fall and rip my pants! Once I got into Kristen's car, we had the biggest laugh of our lives and then I noticed that I still had a paper heart clutched in my fist! Oh man, good times! I'm so glad I went tonight!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this version of this song!!! I could listen to it a million times over! I love Adele! I love when her voice gets a lil raspy! Oh I love this song so much!!
What else...I bought Twilight on Saturday. Oh man, I love Edward!! And I still like that guy from the Temple who looks EXACTLY like Jacob Black. I swear, EVERYtime I see him the words "Team Jacob" shoot across my mind!!
Apparently it must say "Desperately Single" on my forehead or something? At my 'Dilemma' last week, my friend told me that she was going to bring along a friend for me so I wouldn't have to show up to the dinner by myself--amongst friends with their dates. I'm kinda thankful she didn't, it's been a while since I was set up for a blind date. Then today, I get an email from another friend wanting to set me up on a blind date with her co-worker. I think I've hit that stage in life when your married friends want to hook you up with all their other single friends. I thought that only happened to adults. When did I become an "Adult"? AAAHHH?!
I'm kinda disappointed in myself today. I totally missed a golden opportunity to share the gospel. My co-worker and I got on the topic of 'missions'. I mentioned to him that my soon-to-be 19 y/o nephew was going on a mission. He shook his head in disbelief, wondering "how [we] do it?" I kinda shugged it off saying, "We just do". Then I really started to think of what I really wanted to say. I really wanted to tell him this, "We go on missions because when we believe in something that's true and brings so much happiness, we can't help but want to tell it to the world! To share it with everyone!" That's what I wanted to tell him, but I missed my chance. My window of opportunity was gone. In the times I pray for opportunities to share the Gospel, it was been specifically to "recognize opportunities to share the Gospel". I think that is where I fail sometimes. *sigh* Oh well, there were be other 'chances for work all around just now, opportunities right in our way' soon enough.

Today I found out that 2 sisters will be leaving the shift. They were down here on missions and will be going home to Utah with their husbands. My heart hurts because I love and respect these wonderful sister missionaries. As I walked arm in arm with Sister Moon, she nervously asked me how she was going to adjust to post-mission life. My heart goes out to her, it's not an easy transition. I will miss seeing and hugging Sister Moon and Sister Cahoon every Saturday. I don't know how to explain the closeness I share with these sisters I see once a week. I couldn't tell you how many kids each of them has or even when their birthday is. But I can tell you that they are warm and kind hearted and you would be ever so lucky to have met them.
I will tremendously miss them and look forward to seeing them again, whether it's in this life or the next. I am grateful for the blessing of a Temple calling that brings into my life, dear lifelong friends who I will forever carry in my heart.

I'm thankful to my Bishop who left a comment on my Facebook page saying "C U in the SD Temple tomorrow". Who knew how big off an impact that would be. It reminded me that I need to look over the molehill/mountains. Maybe he didn't think that'd make a difference for me, but it did. It reminded me that I can't show up to the Temple tomorrow with a sour attitude. I also appreciate my nephew Sim for saying 'Good night' to me. I thought he was upset with me for something done earlier in the week. I'm grateful for the opportunity to give and receive forgiveness.
Have you ever heard the example of 'if everyone were to throw their trials and tribulations into a big pot, you would want to pick out your own.'. Meaning, you may think that your challenges are difficult, but someone else might be worse off....thus making your trials and tribulations seem more like blessings. Usually, if we look for them, they can be true blessings. Maybe not in the very second--but in time, blessings can be drawn from trials.
I'm done with:
-co-workers who think they're your supervisor
-supervisors who take [above mentioned] co-workers out for LOOOOOONG lunches, and then get mad when my lunch happens to run a lil over.
-feeling suffocated by incessant phone calls, emails and texts from certain friends wanting to talk and not really allowing me the time to call back.
-incessant texts LATE at night
-trying to buy that freakin' car from my brother's friend
-trying to talk to Pythagoras or Mr. NY, for that matter
-my sore, scratchy throat
-not going to the gym because I can't find my gym pass and am to lazy to go down to get another one
-not getting enough sleep.

I wonder if I would love Thin Mints & Shortbread anyless if they were sold in stores? Well, I know one thing for sure, I'd probably be 500 lbs. heavier if they were.

B. He's helpful and pretty knowledgeable about the in's and out's of the office.
C. He's HOT!
He wasn't able to fix it but that didn't really matter to me. Plus, some of my other co-workers would have just made me feel stupid. So can you REALLY blame me for asking him? We talked a couple more times thru the day and even offered his help when I was trying to lift a box of forms to load a printer.
Dang, I love my job.
2. Joan Rivers: IS SCARY!! I was watching The Apprentice last night...OH MAN!! SHE. IS. HIDEOUSLY. SCARY!! I couldn't look at her!! It's a wonder she hasn't pulled a 'Michael Jackson' and her nose has fallen off!!! YUCK!
3. Dilemma: I'm suppose to go out with 2 friends for dinner next week. We were chit-chatting last night and thought that would be nice to do since Nashelli's getting married at the end of the month. Nashelli's fiance gets along with Juliana's boyfriend they'll both be coming along too. I like their fiance & boyfriend...that's not my problem. Do you see where I'm going with this..... I don't want to show up looking like the fifth wheel to a double date. UGH!! I'm not too sure who to ask to come along with, since I'd try to pick a guy friend who knows and gets along with all of them. DANGIT!
4. I am seriously LOVING Morenewmath.com!:
5. EnGAGed: DUDE!! A co-worker got engaged last night! 3 friends have now gotten engaged within the last week!! 3! WHAT THE @#$%^!!! I was tellin' Mamacita that "I have no idea when my number will be called! I must be holding on to ticket #199,841,679 and they're barely calling ticket #4. AAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!
[p.s. As of 12:42 am, March 14, 2009--ANOTHER friend (ol' mission companion) just got engaged! WTH?!]

"That's a tough one. I would have to say April 25th. Because it's not too hot, not too cold, all you need is a light jacket".

[Went to the Dr's today and she thinks it's a slipped rib and the muscles surrounding it are having spasms since it's out of place.]
I forgot how WONDERFUL it is not to be in ANY pain. Plus I love the excuse of "having" to take a nap since I'm quite drowsy.
Oh the joys of medication :) Gotta go, my nap is callin' me.
(p.s. I can't help but think of "Sixteen Candles" when I think about being on muscle relaxers...Man I hope someone else knows that reference.)

1. This TREMENDOUSLY HORRIBLE back/side ache that causes a headache, has me literally crying out in pain and doesn't allow me to sleep since I can't even get comfortable sitting, standing or laying down.
(Note to self: Show up to the Temple on time so you don't have to hurry getting dressed and end up messing up your back. I wish I had a cooler story like, "I was zip lining on Catalina Island and fell off at the end". DANGIT! No cool story here.)

Went to the Temple. Got to see Pythagoras twice. He's so dang cute. Ann Marie is back to working on our Temple shift. She's so crazy cool, I love her! She's engaged to be married this June. I'm happy for her! I had an interview with a member of the Temple presidency. That was pleasant.
We lose an hour of sleep tonight :( I've got a mean head ache....
I threw my back out while at the Temple. Oh man, it's even worse now....and I'm thinkin' the 800mg of Ibuprofen is NOT working. I just hope I don't have to teach Sunday School tomorrow. AARRGGG!
