Subject:Damn, haven't posted in nearly a year!
Security:Public

Guess its about time I post here. My life obviously has not been very exciting in the last year. Lets see...Im still working at the same place, and for the most part like it. This next week is going to be insane, but we have been prepared for it. For those who are actually reading this, and don't know, I work for AT & T wireless. So next week should be interesting with the Iphone launch. I am sure today was out of control, and am SOO glad I was off today!!!!! Lets see, whats else has been going on....My birthday is 16 days away. I will be 34 this year. This does not bother me as much as the fact that my oldest son will be 14 in September. Eek. Speaking of kids, in about 3 weeks they are flying to their dads for 2 weeks. If will be the first time my youngest has been on a plane, and the other 2 don't ever remember flying, so they are pretty excited. Im flying out with them, then flying back the same night. Then the following week my sister is going to come out and spend the weekend with me. I think we are going to Salt Lake, but don't want to jinx it, so I will post about it when we come back :) Lets see, what else has been going on...still going to Vegas about once a month. Still not doing Rocky, but have been to a few shows. Now Im involved with Sin City Theater (www.sincitytheater.com) I am the cast photographer, and in charge of the newsgroup. Since I live 3 hours away I can't go down for rehersals, so I am the photographer. They will be doing the Buffy musical (Once more with feeling) first. Its going to be sweet. (Post to follow about auditions & rehearsals). Thats pretty much it. I will be hopefully posting more in the future. Good things are on the horizon. :D

Subject:WOO HOO! Great news!!!!
Security:Public
Mood: ecstatic

Well, I got some AWSOME news just before I left work today. The promotion I was DYING to get.... I GOT IT!!! :D One of the supervisors in my dept came up to me about an hour before I was supposed to leave. He asks me...are you working tomorrow? So I tell him No, I am off on Wednesdays. So he says, well, I need to talk to you. So I am thinking, Shit, I am in trouble. I was thinking that the call I had the day before had complained on me. (Ppl have the option to take a survey on how we do, and the guy I talked to yesterday said-when we hang up, will the survey come on?) So anywhoo, I am all worried. So he smiles and says- Well, I am going to tell everyone tomorrow, but since you are off, I will tell you now... We have decided to give you the position you wanted (there are about 10 people who are getting it.) I was SOO happy, I wanted to just dance right there. But I kept my composure. But it did make the rest of my day do SOOO much better! (I was having a pretty crappy day. No reason in particular, just woke up pissed off). So YAY!!! I will get all the info on Thursday when I go back to work. Will post more then. :D :D :D :D

Subject:I CUT MY HAIR!!!!!
Security:Public
Mood: accomplished

Ok, just a quick post, as its WAY past when I should be sleeping, but I have been meaning to post this. On Wednesday last week, I cut my hair off! YAY! They took off over 12 inches of hair. I am sending it tomorrow to locks of love. I think this is a GREAT program. For those of you who don't know, they make wigs for kids with Cancer for FREE! Anyone who is interested got to www.locksoflove.org All you need is a minimum of 10 inches of hair to donate. All the details are on the site, I am too tired to list everything. (altho its not that much). So if you are planning to cut your hair for summer (I hear its already 100++ in Vegas!) check out this site before you do. Its for a great cause. Be good to each other.
Much love,
JenNikki

Subject:July 15th SCT
Security:Public
Mood: tired

Just to let everyone know, July 15th will be my last show performing for a while. I hope everyone can make it, as I miss you all!!!!!! The reason for the break is that working 8 hrs, driving the 3 hrs to get to Vegas, and then performing is a bit much for me. (it makes it an almost 24 hr day for me). I am still going to try to come down once a month, but will just be an audience member, or help out with tech or whatever. After the summer is over, I might be going on graveyard shift at work, so that will change everything. I hope to see you all there.
Much love,
JenNikki

Will have to post on that later when I have more energy. Kids have been sick, too. Maybe thats why I am so tired. Eh. Will post more tomorrow, I think that is my day off (have not been to work since Saturday.)

Subject:When the past bites you in the ass
Security:Public
Mood: crappy

Life really sucks sometimes. Today I have learned that I really need to learn from past mistakes. No matter how much time passes, things do not change. When someone hurts you, you need to remember the hurt so that it can not creep up and bite you in the ass. I did something really stupid this week, and am now paying dearly for it. So bad in fact, that it is almost 2 in the morning, and I have to be up in 4 hours and can not sleep because of it. I am sitting at my computer and venting and drinking, knowing damn well that its going to suck tomorrow at work when I am tired and have a hangover. But still I sit here, wondering how I can be so stupid. Wondering how I can get so wrapped up in something that I know is going to get me hurt, but yet I do it anyway. Who would have thought that after nearly 6 years all these feelings would surface and now I am crying and upset about it. Why would someone say the 3 words that mean so much, then be able to take it back after 3 days? I knew deep down that it would happen this way, yet I let myself fall for it again. Fuck. I can't believe that I am so damn stupid. Well, I can only hope that this will be one serious learning experience for me so this never happens again. Blah. Need to go make another drink. Make the memories and thoughts go away, so I can just pass out and not think about it. Enough rambling.

Your Candy Heart Says "First Kiss"

You're a true romantic who brings an innocent hope to each new relationship.
You see the good in every person you date, and you relish each step of falling in love.

Your ideal Valentine's Day date: a romantic dinner your sweetie cooks for you

Your flirting style: friendly and sweet

What turns you off: cynics who don't believe in romance

Why you're hot: you always keep the romance alive




I really HATE Valentines day. GRRRRRR

For those of you who do not know, my grandfather passed away last Wednesday, February 8th. Yesterday the kids and I, along with my brother and his family, and my best friend and her family, spread his ashes near the base of Brianhead. It was a very beautiful spot, near a stream. I know he would have loved it. He was an incredible man, who would have done anything for anyone. I am going to miss him very much. He was an incredible influence on my life. I hope I live to be at least close to an incredible person as he was. I love him dearly, and know he is in a much better place, one without pain.

Subject:Its SNOWING!!!! & job update
Security:Public
Mood: cold

Yes, it snowed today. I have about 6 inches of snow in my front (and back) yard. Its supposed to snow tomorrow. Only downside, I have to work, and have never driven in snow. Hopefully it will melt before 3pm. Either that, or I am taking a cab to work. :D Its nearly 3am here, and I can't sleep. Kids are out of school tomorrow, so a nap is out of the question. Oh well. Just means that I will sleep good tomorrow. Big test for work on Wednesday. If I fail, I have no job. But they have given us all the answers, so its pretty much just memorizing. I HATE tests. Oh well. My job is pretty cool. We went on the phones for the first time on Friday. I did not tell anyone to piss off, so I guess I did ok. They were going to listen to the calls over the weekend, so I am guessing we will find out tomorrow if we suck. There are 19 ppl in the class, and I am one of the oldest, which of course made me feel really old. Its all good, tho. They all seem pretty nice. The two others that are in the same age range as me will also be working days, and most of the younger ones are working p/t, and swing/nights. Will be glad when training and the test are over with. We have to do all this stupid stuff, and the instructor knows I hate it. Maybe its because I keep rolling my eyes, and saying out loud-I hate this part. ;) But hes cool about it. He never gives me crap about it. Could be that hes 25, and knows I could kick his ass :D Anyways, I am rambling. Guess I should try to get some sleep.

Subject:I GOT A JOB!!!!
Security:Public
Mood: excited

Yep, it's true. I went on an interview last week and got the job. I start on Monday. I am working for a company called Convergys. Its basically inbound sales. The handle companies like QVC and HSN, as well as infomercials and crap like that. It seems like a really easy job. But at least I am not unemployed anymore :D I have 3 weeks of training from 3:30pm-10pm Mon-Fri, and then I will work 8am-4:30pm with Wed & Sun off. I like split days off. Wednesdays my 2 youngest get out of school @ 1:30pm, so I wanted that day off so so I will be here when they get home. And then with Sundays off I can still go out or go to Vegas on Saturday nights and have the next day off to recover. WOO HOO! I have to go now and sign some papers, I am trying to buy a house. More on that as it happens.

Subject:Life is SO weird (warning: long post)
Security:Public
Mood: surprised

Well, life gets weirder and weirder. Where to start? Well, last week I get a call from my ex-sister in law (who I am still friends with). Anyways, she calls to tell me that she is getting married next month. So we are talking for a bit, and of course, we start talking about her brother (my ex-husband). Well, she tells me that he got re-married a few months back, and has moved to Arizona. So I tell her that he has not bothered to pay child support for the last YEAR. She did not know this, and tells me that is really bad, and apologized for him. I tell her its not her fault her brother is a loser. So I give her my address because she wants me to come to the wedding, and does not have my new address here in Cedar City. So time passes, and she calls me again tonite. This is where it gets weird. She tells me that she talked to him tonite, and he wants me to CALL HIM!!!! So of course I TOTALLY freak out. So I wait till 9pm (so my cell is free) and call him. We ended up talking for nearly an HOUR. The weird part is we did not fight ONCE! It was so surreal. I guess he has finally grown up and decided he needs to take care of his kids. So he told me he is going to start paying me child support again, and I should receive the first check by December 1st. I really hope he is serious. I did find out what city he lives in, and where he works. Hopefully we can remain civil and there will be no drama with it.

On a more normal note, I am TOTALLY excited, because I am driving out to Vegas tomorrow night so I can do my after Thanksgiving shopping!!!! I am planning on leaving here about 8ish pm, if all goes well. I am going to be there till Friday night, then will be driving back here because my youngest is going to be in the Christmas Parade on Saturday. He is totally excited. His whole class will be riding on a float. Looks like I got that camera just in time. :D


Work is going well, I am off for the next 4 days (YAY). The cool thing about being on salary, all holidays off. Well, thats about all for now. My head it TOTALLY spinning from all this crap. Hopefully I will see some of my Vegas friends on this trip, may even try to stop into Putters for a spell. I hope everyone has a VERY happy Thanksgiving.

Subject:Sawyer Brown ROCKS!!!!
Security:Public
Mood: ecstatic

I just got home from St George. OMG that concert was AWSOME!!! Its a pretty small arena, and I had GREAT seats. It started right on time, with Western Underground opening. They started with a video tribute to Chris Ledoux, and then they came on. Their set was just over an hour. They are really good. Then there was a 15 minute break to set up for Sawyer Brown. When they came on, the audience went NUTS! They performed for about 2 hours. Parking was not bad at all. I had a AWSOME time. The room I stayed it was so pretty. Then this morning they had a HUGE breakfast, which was included in the price of the room. After I ate, I checked out, and then went SHOPPING!!! I actually did not spend that much money shopping, so thats a good thing. I took a bunch of pictures when I was there, and I will post those as soon as I can figure out how to do it.

Mood: excited

Well, things are still CRAZY at work. I took a half day today, and am STILL tired. But, tonite I ordered my ticket for Sawyer Brown. WOO HOO!!! My first concert in about 2 years! Yay for me!!! I am also spending the night in St George. Got a good deal on a room down there, too. The other AWSOME thing that happened, is I got my refund from the DMV!!! BIG YAY FOR ME!!! So I went down and bought the digital camera I have been wanting FOREVER!!!! SO I had the refund in my hands for a whopping TEN MINUTES :D. But because of the refund, I pretty much bought a digital camera AND a nice memory card for 20 bucks!!!! YAY!!!! So of course today I took a BUNCH of pictures. Because of the concert, I will not be going to Vegas for the Halloween show, but from what I have been told, everyone is sick/hurt/fighting/burnt out/on leave. BUT, I am going down on the 12th of November. There is a special event that weekend (which I PROMISED not to mention), AND I am going to the show!! YAY!!! So things are looking up. It also looks like I am going to be switched to Salary at work, which means no OT, but PAID DAYS OFF!!! WOO HOO!!!! Well, thats about all for now.
Oh, VH1 Classic is WAY cool. They are running a Queen special right now!!!!

Subject:Its late and I am still awake
Security:Public
Mood: cranky

Well, its almost 2am and I can't sleep. Lucky me. Well, at least I do not have to work tomorrow. Been thinking a lot about past events. I have learned to never take ANYTHING for granted, and enjoy life as it comes at you. You can never get back time, no matter how hard you try. I've also come to realize that people really do suck. So many people lie and decieve. It makes me really sad. If you tell someone you are going to do something, just do it. If you really don't mean it, then why say it in the first place? All it does is piss people off, and show that you are a big liar. And you never know how many people you will hurt with the lie. Just tell the truth. Pretty simple. I always tell my kids, the truth will set you free.
Well, I think I am going to drive to St George next weekend. There is a concert at the Dixie Center that I really want to see. Tickets are pretty cheap, and I have been putting in LOTS of overtime at work, so I think I deserve it. Then on the 12th of November I am going to Vegas (YAY). I just found out that my best friend Bri will be Magenta that night. Have not seen her perform in a VERY long time. I am thinking of taking the St George Shuttle down, since it will cost about the same as gas. The only drag is I will have no car in Vegas if I do. EH, maybe I will drive. I like being able to go where I want when I want. My mom is supposed to come out here sometime in November, too. Knowing my luck, it will be the same damn weekend I want to go to Vegas. But she has yet to make plane reservations, so who knows. The weather is starting to get REALLY frigging cold here. Nick & I went to an SUU game tonite, and had to leave because we were FREEZING!!! Its still pretty nice during the day, but once the sun goes down, its COLD! Well, thats about all for now.
