Where do I belong!

You Belong in London

A little old fashioned, and a little modern.
A little traditional, and a little bit punk rock.
A unique soul like you needs a city that offers everything.
No wonder you and London will get along so well.
What City Do You Belong In?

LONDON HERE I COME... (well maybe in a few years)

My oh my, what a wonderful day

I find these word very fitting for this splendid day.

Reason #1 Its Friday (do I really need to say more)

Reason #2 I got to leave work today at promptly 1pm

Reason #3 I survived Wal-Mart (this is an accomplishment, have you
ever been to the Orem Wal-Mart? I should get a medal of
honor for just going)

Reason #4 I was introduced to a great movie "Tristan and Isolde"
(You should watch it) **Warning- It's sad

Reason #5 I can stay up as late as I want for tomorrow I shall sleep in.

Oh yes this is a wonderful day!

Little Lessons

Today I was having a little bit of a hard time. I began to wonder why the Lord had forgotten about me. yeah leave it to Satan to kick me while I am down. I know deep down that he didn't, although at times it seems that the blessing never come. I know with out a doubt that he knows and loves me. I also know that the things I want to happen will happen in his time and his time is perfect. I also know that for everything there is a purpose and the trials I am currently experiencing are for my benefit.

Even with this knowledge it I still felt the need to wallow in self-pity. I have this roommate and she and I were talking somehow some of the things I have been struggling with came up. I expressed my concern that the Lord had forgotten about me, she made a comment that stuck with me. She reminded me that if we don't forget the Lord in our trials he will not forget us. So profound and yet so simple.

I have made a new resolve to try a little harder to be a little better, at least that is what President Hinckley would say. Really I donut know I think I know what President Hinckley would say.

P.S. I know that some of my post this one included are a little down. I promise I will be ok, as soon as these trials past I will be better than ever!

Small Accomplishments

So part of my job is to plan retreats, lunch and parties for the marketing department. I might add that it is so fun! This can be very difficult because although you plan get it aproved and sign the contract it is not set it stone and sometimes has to be changed. When I say sometimes I mean always. It is just to be expected.

Well one of my current projects is a leadership retreat. We have chosen to do this retreat at the Sundance Resort. Well what they do is they don't charge you to rent the room you have $100 service charge and then you have to spend so much in food. The room the wasatch room is what we had chosen but I went up to look at it to see if it. Upon my arrival I met the sales manager who happens to be a very attractive person. This made the drive to Sundance worth every mile. So the next day when I got back to the office I promptly signed the contract.

Well a couple of days ago, I was told that we needed to change the date. I called him and he had to check with a group that had reserved the wasatch room but had not signed the contract, to see if they still wanted it. Well as luck would have it they did. So he offered me a different room. However, this room was much larger and more than double the $600 we were going to pay. He told me the price was $1800 but he would give it to me for $1500. This was a little more than we wanted to spend. I asked him if he had any thing else that we would be able to use and he said that this was the only thing available. He asked me what price would work for our budget. I got him to give it to us for $800. What he dropped the price $1000.

I am very proud of myself although pride is of the devil. :) This is one small thing for XanGo but one giant accomplishment for this administrative assistant.
