My Apologies...

So this month has been the month where I don't post a lot.  Honestly, my brain has just checked out.  I am mentally and physically exhausted from life.  My life is wonderful but parts can be just exhausting.  It has been almost two years since I have had a vacation.  A true vacation where I actually have a job and are getting paid while I am off.  Yes, there was a portion of time last year when I wasn't working... But that's soooooo not a vacation.  That's called worrying if you're going to be able to provide for yourself.  The funny thing is... I am not really looking forward to the sleeping in or anything relaxing like that... I just want to be home or shopping or something that doesn't involve work.  Plus, this is a company shutdown week... so that means when I return from this vacation... I won't have a billion emails or messages waiting for me.  It is literally a guilt free vacation.

It's probably because I feel sick but I just think I am ready for time off.  I am ready for June.. hell.. I am ready for this summer to be over.  I have a feeling that the fall is going to be just awesome. 

Anyway, I doubt I will post again this month or the first week of July.  SO... have fun, enjoy the summer, be safe, be kind, etc etc.  /kisses

Ha... Awesome... I <3 Canada

Wal-mart Public School

Just another reason why I love Canada... But then again... Florida is still apart of the United States... Damnit.

So anyway... the weekend was good.  Nice and relaxing... I am planning so much of my future that I seem to be living in it rather than present day.  While this may seem bad to other people... I kind of like it.  It allows me to forget that I am deep in the middle of this crappy summer and let's me dream of the fun stuff coming up.  Meh... Better get back to work... only 4 more days left until the week shutdown.  YAY.

5 Months...

Time has flown, gone by extremely slowly, or just plain stopped altogether. Here's to the next 5 months being even better than the first...

I am so in love with you..

*Crosses Friday Finish Line*

Every little thing I do is magic.  HA! *POOF*


Pour your sugar on me... I can't get enough... I'm hot... sticky sweet...

Monday's McCheekersons

The weekend was good.  Nice and relaxing.  I bought a new nightstand from Cost Plus World Market... I love that place.  I went there as an after thought... since my furniture is on the modern side... they ended up having something I liked.  I also bribed my mom's husband into putting it together -- Awesome!  

Work this week should be steady.  I have my early morning meeting tomorrow... Not fun...  BUT 2 more weeks and Amgen shuts down for a week!  It has been way too long since I have been off work for an extended period of time that isn't because I am out of work!  I can just relax and play with my Quick Bead.  Just kidding.

AMG 531

Out of 30+ drugs that are in the pipeline at my work, the one drug that happens to be on my team is going to file with the FDA in the fall. The date of the filing is our 9 month anniversary - October 23rd.

*Satisfied Sigh*

Ahhh... all in a days work... *puts hands behind head and floats on back*

It's Friday, payday and check out this bad boy.  That's right... that baby is all *mine*....  Where should I break in my new digital camera?  How about Disneyland?  Say around September-ish?  Awesome!

My plans for the weekend... rest my broken tail, prepare for my upcoming week long work holiday, and get my nails done.  WOW.  I lead a rough life...  *stretches back again and continues to float*

Impaired By Cuteness

Awwwww.... I want a baby (otter) to float with!  

It's over the hump day!  One big meeting today and not much else.  I have a feeling that this day is going to go so slowly. =(  This month is half over... Thankfully it isn't too hot.  I ran the air conditioner in my house for the first time yesterday.  I grew up without it so it's such a novelty for me to use it.  Maybe that's why I haven't been sleeping all the well... Just too hot... I like it when I get a really cold without realizing it and then pull the blankets over me to almost instant warmth.  That usually puts me to sleep.

Can I Go Home Yet?

I don't feel well and I think I am getting sick.  One minutes I'm freezing... next my forehead is burning... /sigh... Anyway, I am very easily irritated today.  Everything is annoying and I am just ready to crack!  You know what is annoying me at the current moment?  Accents.  Yes, I am pissed off because people around me have thick annoying accents.  Seriously.  Kill me. 

I wish's HTML editor worked this well...

Nothing says cute like a porcupine.

No early morning meeting today.  Yay.  Sushi with mom.  Yay.  80 days until zebraloudsoundslove.  YAY.

On Relationships...

A wise woman I once talked to gave me a very insightful overview of relationships... Maybe it's too simple.. maybe she has it all wrong... but I thought it was good...

The Bloom Stage: This is the period of the relationship where everything is new.  Also known as the 'Honeymoon Period', it is where you start out optimistic.. open to everything.. butterflies are common.. and you start to find out a little of who the other person is.  This time usually lasts any where from a few weeks to a few months but no longer than a year.

The Rock n' Roll Stage:  This is where most relationships usually end.  You really get to know the person.  You either know they are the one or you don't.  The periods of good and bad times can last much longer than most think.  It is your willingness to stick it out that makes or breaks your love.  Usually the question that defines this period is... Is it worth it?  Hopefully by now the answer is yes.  This period lasts anywhere from 5 to 15 years. 

Fine Wine Stage: The last stage is where everything is clicking.  You know the other person inside and out.  They make you happy, sad and content.  You have experienced the entire range of emotion towards them and in the end... you are still in love.  This is the time that is marked by grandkids, road trips, matching jackets (just kidding), and retirement.  This period of course lasts through the times when you hold hands and use the other for your cane...

Of course every relationship is different... and some are much more complicated... But someday I hope to make it to the 'Fine Wine Stage'...

Little Reminder

Just a little snippet to remind you that I am so in love with you. You are the most amazing, caring, giving, funny, intelligent, awesome guy that I have ever known. I count my blessings every day that I wake up to you... and I can't wait to be able to sign my name Brittany Matheson (confession: sometimes when I am doodling that's how I sign my name)... You make me laugh and feel so good about myself. You match me in almost every way. Thank you so much for being in my life. I hope I can keep you.

My Love For...

A Wide Range of Music v.1

Country Music - The Women

Those that know me... know that I listen to almost everything.  The range is huge from classical, to hip-hop, to rock, to jazz, to oldies, to country and many, many other genres.  I even listen to music from international flavors, samba groups and an all female music group that plays instrumental music using traditional Chinese instruments.  I am open to many different styles and here is one of them.  Give it a chance.  But it's not for everyone. 

The Judds - "Mama, He's Crazy" 

alt :

Trisha Yearwood - "She's In Love With The Boy"

alt :

The timeless... Dolly Parton - "9 to 5"

alt :

Carrie Underwood - "Before He Cheats"

alt :

And lastly Faith Hill - "Breathe"  It doesn't get any sexier than a woman naked beneath a sheet...

*Friday/Month of June Dance In A Wheelchair*

So, me and my bruised tail made it to Friday.  Hopefully I won't have to move much this weekend and it can continue to heal.  I discovered it's really hard to place an ice pack on your butt and then sit still long enough for it to turn your tailbone into an icicle.  Such a wonderful injury. 

MOST NON-SURPRISING NEWS EVER!!!! --> Satan and Satan's Handler want to keep vistor logs secret so they can continue in secret with their plans of destroying the world before the 2008 election.  I can just imagine the names on those logs even when they weren't secret!  However, I doubt people sign their real names... like "Big Oil", "Corporate America", and "al-Qaeda". 

Well, I must get working... Have a great weekend.  Oh and Happy June!
