55th annual VFW fair

Image from here.

Chad and I went and walked around at our local fair. We mainly went to get the delicious-looking treat above. It's a funnel cake for those of you that don't know. Basically, it's deep fried dough sprinkled with powdered sugar. Not healthy for you but they sure are good. We didn't ride any rides because none looked fun enough and the ferris wheel was one of those bench-type seats and we don't do those. We didn't play the games because they are rigged for the most part and a waste of money. (Especially when you don't have a job like me.) But, we had a good time just walking around and eating funnel cake. Hey, at least we got some exercise in for the night.

Diagnostic Imaging Sonography

I have been thinking of dropping my teaching degree thing and becoming a Diagnostic Imaging Sonographer; in other words, a sonograph technician. I think it would be a cool job. I'm looking into schools here close to home and so far, I have come up with Wallace State Community College or Virginia Collegeat Birmingham. I've contacted the colleges to get more information. We'll see where I go from here.

Still job searching.

So, my search for a job has continued. And, I'm afraid it will continue for a while. You see, I live in a BFE town in Northeast Alabama. Put it this way, if you blink you miss it. Our closest city has a few places for employment... McD's, BK, Taco Hell.. etc. The other city used to be the "Sock Capital of the World" but over the past couple of years, the sock mills have shut down. Their work was sent overseas or across the border. So, the best employment you can get now is either Wal-Mart or Lowe's. It's quite a sad situation. I'm having to look 50+ miles away from home for a decent paying job. And then, I have to make sure that it pays enough for me to make the trip each day until I either move closer or find something else. I'm looking for something that I can work at and pay my car payments for the next 2 years. After that, I won't have to stress as much because my car will be PAID-IN-FULL. (aka NO MORE PAYMENTS) So, while I can still draw my unemployment, I steadily look for a job. It's a journey around here. So until then...

Diary of an Indy Grrrl

I read this blog, Diary of an Indy Grrrl. I find her reviews of movies and other such things very interesting. She always seems to find the craziest movies that I have never even heard of. Well, she's got this give away going on and I would love to have the things that are in it. The give away blog she posted is located here. Some of you might also be interested in trying to win it. Go over and enter! And may the best person win! (or the luckiest, whichever.)

Haha, I also tweeted about this which shows how seriosu I want it. See, go look for yourself...

Trip to KY, Bath & Body Works update...

Ok, so I headed out to KY Thursday night. We had an eventful weekend to say the least. We made that trip to Bath & Body Works and I did indeed get the pumpkin scent that I wanted. Well, I got home and showed my mom and she wanted it! She even gave me the money for it. So now, I don't have my pumpkin scent anymore. That's okay though. I can get more. In fact, at the bottom of the Bath & Body Works receipt, there's a number you can call and receive $10 off a $30 purchase so me being the penny pincher that I am, called the number. You take a short survey (it really is worth the time) and they give you a validation code to write in the spot on the receipt. Then, you take it into your Bath & Body Works store and they take care of it from there. Plus, they also gave me a coupon for 20% my next purchase. You can't use the two together but it's nice to have both of them. These things make wonderful presents for Christmas, birthday, etc. So, I'll probably be buying up more since I do indeed have these discounts.

Bath & Body Works

I have this strange obsession with Bath & Body Works Anti-bacterial foaming hand soap. I especially love the pumpkin scent that comes during the Fall. Right now, they are having a sell on the pumpkin scent as well as other select scents and I must go and get some of them. I'm heading up to Ft. Campbell again this weekend with Leslie so maybe we will have time to go pick up at least a few.

Scrapbook pages...

I was looking through my old pictures a couple of days ago. I found several pictures of my nephews when they were little. I decided that I needed to add some pages to my scrapbook of my nephews. I have to now gather up all the pictures that I need to make copies of and get those made and then design a few pages for them. I have 4 nephews that I'm going to have to create pages for. I have a lot of catching up though. From them being a baby up to now; they are 16, 15, 14 & 11. Yeah, a lot of catching up to do. Unfortunately, I'm not sure where all of our pictures are from when they were babies. Now, I'm thinking maybe I should just create an 8x8 album just for my nephews. I have a lot of thinking to do.

Ft. Campbell, KY

It's a Saturday night at Ft. Campbell, KY. I'm sitting here watching The Real World on MTV. Today was eventful enough. We went to Kohl's and I found a couple of things... a picture album for all my pictures of Nicholas & I bought Tammy a Live, Laugh, Love picture frame. All on sale of course. LOL We came home and rested a while and then went and got something to eat for supper. We cut the watermelon I bought and put it in zip-loc bags in the fridge. We'll eat it later because it will be so good cold. I'm not sure what's on the agenda for tomorrow. I'm not sure if I'm going home tomorrow either. I need to do some homework. I have a couple of assignments to turn in before Tuesday. I guess I'll go work on those.
