Yes I am alive!!!!

I would like to apologize to the two people who actually read this thing for my prolonged absence...I'ave had a couple of very crazy weeks...

Last week was month end at work which always means extra work for me...however some intelligent person at our corporate office (and by intelligent I mean compleate dumbass!) decided to schedule all of the parks "we have great ideas on how to improve next year even tho you won't let us implement any of them even the ones that won't cost any money" meeting on Thursday...Thus taking away an entire day of my time that was needed for month close...I enjoy the meeting because it gives me a chance to catch up with my coworkers who are so crazy busy when the park is open all summer that I never see them, but I really would have rather it been this week, or next week...next week would have been much better since this week was as crazy if not worse than last...


For Halloween the hubs and I went to French Lick and stayed at the resort.  They had a Halloween Murder Mystery Dinner Theater that was part of our package...If we had paid the $40 each to see the show we would have been very disappointed but since the package was only about $10 more than a regular night in the same room it wasn't a bad deal.  The weekend was great and we had some much needed us time.  We went swimming and lazed in the hot tub then went to the casino for a while where hubs found a new favorite game.  He says that the video poker there is set up in a way that makes it highly unlikely that the casino would have any reason to cheat he normally won't play video poker since you are playing against the casino thus giving the reason to rig the computers but at French Lick you are playing against other people at your tabel and there is one "dealer" (employee watching the game?) for four tabels but the casino has no hand in the actual game. 

Back to the murder mystery.  "Dinner" was heavy hour 'devours at best.  It looked like they opened up Real Simple Magazine and Martha Stewart Living for October and just made every recipe in the magizines...it was cute and good but not what you would expect when they are marketing "dinner".  Especially since they normally have a meat and potatoes type buffett at their dinner theaters.  To top things off they had sold out of tickets but had extra room so someone decided to add more tables to the room so that they could sell more tickets...but they forgot to tell the kitchen manager about this so there wasn't enough food...OOPS! :)

The play itself wasn't bad but the who done it portion was a complete guess.  There weren't really any clues that would point to the guilty party...normally I wouldn't necessarily know tho the murder was but after it was revealed I would say "oh that makes sense...not this time! 

Over all a great weekend but a totally crappy theater experience.   The breakfast buffett is to die for tho!  It was delicious!

Sunday we went with Diver Boy's wife to Comedy Caravan and watched Steve Hofstetters improv show (anyone who likes Steve check out the CD from last years improve show in Louisville..."Lobster Girl" is Diver Boy's wife) :)  It feels good just to sit with friends and laugh...I love Comedy Caravan...we need to go more often. 

Monday was a pretty normal day but I was so exhausted by the time I got home from class (thanks Daylight Savings...no extra hour of sleep for me I just stayed up later!) but we had no food in the house so Hubs and I went to Kroger.  I took my handy dandy coupon book with me and hubby went on a scavenger hunt trying to only buy items that were both on sale and we had a coupon for.  I had to veto a couple of his choices (if we won't use/eat it why are we buying it?) and over rule him when he didn't want me to buy anything that didn't fit both categories (sorry but we were out of eggs and the milk was going to expire on Tuesday...)  when we checked out and the total went from $250 to $120 he officially decided that going grocery shopping with coupons is more fun that watching football (as long as the Colts aren't playing) and that he wants me to make sure he can come every time I go on my "big" shopping trips.  It was fun but after I went home and made him put away the groceries, I was exhausted and went straight to bed.

Tuesday was good.  I had a lot of homework to do and a long day at work but it all went ok.  I didn't get to eat lunch until 3 (I had class at 4 and normally leave at 3 on those days) and barely made it to class on time.  then we went to dinner with my mom and went home to do homework.

Yesterday we were doing inventory at theme park world and the outside company we hired can't count.  they had over an 11% error rate so we kicked them out and we are going to have to do inventory again later when they learn how to count...Needless to say I ate my lunch in my car on my way to class last night, and my homework wasn't done...

Tonight is date night.  I have a mystery shop with a $150 spending limit...I love free date nights! :)  especially when they involve yummy food at expensive resturants I normally would be afraide to walk to close to for fear that they would take all of the money I have in my checking account for just walking in the door! :)

Finally Today:
Remember, remember, the Fifth of November, The Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I know of no reason why the Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot...
