Thoughts on Monday

I have exciting news - this is my last week of work!!! WooHoo!! I'm very excited. I have three days of work left (that is, if they don't call me and tell me to not come in). These last two weeks have really accelerated my desire to quit work, probably because the end is so near. I feel like my manager has been doing her best to fire me before my last day has arrived as well. All of the sudden, I have gotten continuous threats of being written up if my performance is not at a certain level (if I don't increase my sales, if I get caught doing a sitting when the parent is not in the safety zone, if I don't do at least 2 extreme croppings during the sales, blah, blah, blah). I think that my manager's goal is to fire me before my last day because it would probably look better. I don't know. Whatever. Honestly I try my very best every day that I work, so if I do get written up, it wouldn't be for a lack of effort. HOWEVER my manager is on vacation for the rest of the week at the moment, and so that means I probably won't get written up. HA! In addition to all of these battles, I was scheduled to work on a Sunday (once again) and of course called and let them know that I wouldn't be able to come in (HA) but the best part is that when I called, nobody answered the phone, so I left a message - which means that I got the last word without having to get yelled at...or lectured...or given a guilt trip.(double HA.) I feel like I won. I feel like it stuck it to The Man. It's a good feeling.

I bought this shirt today: It amuses me. I've been meaning to buy it forever, but never got around to it. I remembered this weekend, and I could only find it one place online. I had to buy a size larger than what I wear, only because they didn't have my size. It should be ok, the shirts look like they run small anyway.

This weekend is the wedding that I am going to help shoot! I'm really excited. I've rented an extra camera lense online to help me add variety to the pictures I take. I've also been trying to prepare like a mad woman, reading material and planning to make sure that I do a good job, and not mess up these pictures (wedding pictures are seriously important). I know that shooting weddings are incredibly stressful and difficult, but I really think that I can do it.

this week, I plan to:
- work out
- have a Keva Juice with a friend (one of my favorite places)
- go out to lunch with another friend
- finish reading the book I've been trying to finish since about February
- rent a movie that my husband would not enjoy watching with me (any suggestions?)
- edit photos - specifically from the canyon last week. so will have pictures to share with you very soon from my adventure last week. In the mean time, I have two photos to share with you....

I took this photo last week. Joel and I were with our pastor and his wife driving out behind their neighborhood. The pastor was showing us the undeveloped land, and neat photo opportunities of the desert. At the corner of one of the dirt roads, there was a chair. It was totally random. This totally amuses me.


But I have a question for you guys. Same picture, one is in black and white, and one is color. Which one do you like better?
