Friday the 13th

Well, I had never had any bad experiences that occurred on Friday the 13th, until now. This past Friday, I was laid off from my job. I am not going to miss all of the stress and crap that is associated with that job. I am going to miss some great friends that I made while I was there. I hope to keep in touch with everyone. It will be very stressful financially if I don't find a job quickly. So, I will be filing for unemployment (something I thought I would never have to do and don't wish on anyone) and also I will be going full strength with my Princess House business to help me out during the transition. While I have some hard feelings about certain individuals who were chosen to stay with the company (mallets), this could actually be a blessing in disguise. Maybe with my experience in the lab, I will be able to get a job dealing with forensics. Any of you who know me very well; know that the whole reason I earned a degree in chemistry was to pursue a job dealing with forensic sciences. If I can't get a forensic related job, I would like to try to do something other than pharmaceutical. There are many chemistry related jobs out there, I worked 3 years in pharmaceutical, and part of me feels that the 3 years, was long enough.

Aimee's Baby Shower

Sorry it took so long to get these pictures up. I really think I'm losing my mind. Of course, the day of the shower, I really thought I was going to lose it. I decided to go over to my parents' house to make everything because their kitchen is alot larger. My parents were down in Katy, TX visiting my sister and her husband, so I would have the house all to myself. I have not done much cooking over at my parents' house since they remodeled. So, I was having trouble finding stuff. It seemed like I had to call my mom a hundred times just to know where stuff was. Well, once I found everything I needed I was well on my way to making all the food. But, after I made the cake and was getting ready to get the icing prepared to decorate, I realized that I couldn't find any food coloring. So, I had to run to the store and get some. I ended up leaving a little late but thought I would make it up on the road until I got caught in traffic going about 3 miles an hour on the freeway. It's just my luck too. Needless to say, it was so hectic just trying to get over to Aimee's house for the shower. But once I made it there, everything went pretty smoothly, except for the fact that I forgot to bring the gift. I remembered the cake and crepes, etc. And then I forgot the gift. I really think that I'm losing it. Here are some pictures from the shower.
