Catching Up

My show is almost done and I can't wait, i'm counting down the hours, I just can't wait to be done and have so much time for me and Gar and our house! Oh, yeah, and workig out with Lynette! So I am finishing my show, but Gar is starting his. He got cast in the new DesertStar Playhouse show, "Indiana Bones". He is Indiana Bones. That show starts on June 7th and runs until mid -August. So go check him out.


We had a little get together at our place in honor of my new job, Gar threw a little party for me, what a nice guy... Well so one brought some of there friends and it turns out that one of the friends was last years winner of Survivor: China. Here he is on the show.... And this is us at out house. It is me and my friend Scott and Todd the winner... It was crazy meeting him. I was wondering why he was so tan and skinny! That was the highlight of the party. The millionaire at out house!

This year Gar and his work did the 5k Race for the Cure. We didn't sign up in enough time to have me do it, but that was a good thing, have not been running and the 5k would have killed me. It is a for a great cause and Gar love to do it. He did a great job, 26 minutes. We have not been to the gym in a while so 26 minutes was great.

The weekend that the Jazz playoffs were here, Gar's work gave him the suite for the Bee's. So we got to hang out and watch a little baseball. It is always fun watching a ball game. We were the only one's in the box so that was nice.
And i must say that i am happy with the turn out of American Idol. I do love little David, but i'm so glad that David Cook won! Now on to So You Think You Can Dance!



With spring here, kind of, we are starting to do our yard and make it look presentable. Gar has it all mapped out in his head which is good, because all I do is mow the lawn. We have a ton of plans and are starting with the front yard. Next to the garage, we had this weird tree, it was growing sideways and just not that pretty of a tree.

So about a week ago, i went to the theater to do my show, and when I got back, the sideways tree was gone. It look SO much better! We are not sure what we are going to do with that space, maybe use if for more parking space, who knows. But it looks so much better already!

So with that started we marked off the front yard with what we (and by we I mean Gar), wanted to do. We wanted to rip out those ugly dead bush things, make them square planters and re-do that little walk way with pretty stones and make it NOT ghetto!Then Gar ripped everything up. The pic below is it ready to start from scratch. It is really crazy, the process it takes to re landscape your yard, and how Gar knows what to do, I will never know. He just knows.
First he did the walk way and it makes the biggest difference. I love it. This pic is RIGHT after he did it. I need to take a new pic of this with the grass trimmed and it all cleaned off. But isn't the stone pretty. It matches our brick on the house perfectly! So with that done, he started the planters.
Again, last Saturday, I went and did my show and came back to this....
He was DONE, I was So happy, and it looks so great. The pic above is before the lawn was mowed and trimmed and it still looks so beautiful! What a difference! I may plant some flower in there, but I'm thinking i will just leave it with just the bushes. It looks so nice and clean and I love the squares! The next project is to make the sides of the front porch in to planters. That will be a HUGE job, but it will look amazing!

Then Gar trimmed up the crazy tree we have in the back yard. I was growing pretty crazy and he is amazing and make it look presentable. You should have seen it, he was literally on top of the tree cutting and shaping it. It was great, we did end up making a bird really mad because Gar cut the branch that her nest was on, but we put it back in the tree so she can be happy again!

I can't wait to get a fence built on this side of the house. I'm not a fan of chain link, and this is the only part of the fence that is chain link, so it will be nice to one day put in wood fence to match and for more privacy! But the tree looks so much better!

While we are outside working, Toby is right there watching us through the fence. Gar got this pic and it is too cute.

I really don't think this dog could be any cuter! He has a TON of toys and like to get them all out and play with them all. If we get him a stuffed animal, he will usually chew it apart and we have to end up throwing it away because all the stuffing is coming out. Well, he has this one we call squirrelly. We got it for him 2 Christmas's ago and the first thing he did was chew the ears and tail off. But that was all he did to it. And he still has it. It is his favorite toy. He plays with it the most and it is funny, because if we are downstairs and ask him where squirrelly is, he will go upstairs and get him. It is so funny. It's Toby's little woobie.

Well the other night, we were going to bed and saw this... He was laying on the bed cuddling with squirrelly. He has done it a couple of times and this time we were able to get a pix. I love him, he is TOO cute!


The Adventures of Super Toby!!

So..I don't blog on this page much..but when I do it is good! I have a program that can turn pictures into comic pages (of course I do) and so I made this one of Toby.

A new place of emplyment

Most of you readers out there (all 7 of you), know that I got a new job.

If you didn't know, I recently was asked by the Sheraton to come and interview. They offered me a great package that I couldn't say no to, so I took it and ran. I gave my resignation letter to the Hilton and was off to start a new career at the Sheraton, all this after a long 7 years at the Hilton. I am done, i have cut the cord. It was a strange feeling to leave, a few tear shed, but it was a much needed change that had to happen for my career to further itself.

I have officially been at the Sheraton for a week now and I am loving it. I haven't received my first paycheck yet, but I am really exited to get it and start paying of those damn bills.

So that is what has been going on. It was not planned, but in Gar's and my life, when it is supposed to happen, it just does and it happens fast.
