well my last blog ended a little hostile now didn't it? haha my bad bloggers. I will try to never do that again. Well, I financed a Honda Civic, and it kicks serious ass! I'm so sorry I have not blogged in a while but I have just been so mobile now that I have a good running, dependable car. On Saturday, 4/10/10 Reagan and I took a road trip to Burley, Idaho to help his mother move into her newly remodeled home. The house is beautiful and the trip was a lot of fun. We were able to spend some time with his entire family, which hardly ever happens since his mom lives up there and we all live down here. The car made it the two hours each way with no problems, and we used about a third of the gas that we used when we took the jeep up there. So that was even more of a plus. Sunday, for the most part things were back to normal, except it was Reagan's boss's birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRENT!! So since he was out and about all day, Reagan was able to take a nice little break from work and we went and visited the old school train museum up here in Ogden. We were able to go up inside some of the trains and it was super cool, but kinda scary. those things are a lot taller than you think!! So after that it was back to work for Reagan, and back to home for me. On Monday, I took a trip down to SLC to visit my daddy at work, and Reagan went to the tattoo shop as usual. Then around 3pm, just as Reagan's horoscope predicted, he decided to leave work and come home to spend time with me. That early day turned into three days! Reagan stayed home Tuesday and Wednesday also!! On Tuesday we had an awesome lunch with my friend Amelia at a place called Moochies Meatballs. they make some awesome sandwiches for sure. Then we did what I think was one of the funnest parts of our 3 days spent together. We visited Hatch Family Chocolates. Now if you are unaware of what the hell i am talking about, you can google it. There is a show on TLC called the little chocolatiers. they are little people who own a chocolate shop, in utah. yeah, we met them, not a big deal really. lol. it was soooooooooo fun.

it seems to be my year reference of choice lately, though I am not entirely sure why. I have been spending a lot of time comparing myself to Jeff Hornacek in 1987 when he played for the Phoenix Suns. You be the judge. I am blogging today to vent. Today has been a bit of a roller coaster. I started the day stressed, because we are supposed to drive to Idaho to help Reagan's mom move on Saturday, but we still don't have a legal, running car. So as i left the house, stressed, and with an empty wallet, I found myself pondering if things were going to work out in my favor this round. Then, as i arrived to SLC and reposted the ad to sell my car, my phone blew up. People calling left and right, offering top dollar for my POS car!! I had my car title signed over to a lovely woman named JESSICA by 4 o clock. I was amped! Still plenty of time to travel the 6 blocks down the road with my dad to look at a new car! I then proceeded to call Randy, the owner of the car lot that I would be purchasing a car from. The same man who told me he would be there ALL DAY TIL CLOSE! well, they close at 6pm, and when I called at 4, he was already gone. so frustrating. Now I have cash in my pocket, and no car to spend it on. SO FRUSTRATING. So I decide to take my fathers car with expired tags and non working door and drive the 40 something miles back to Ogden, to call it a day. By then, its about 5:30pm, perfect time to hit 5 o clock traffic! lovely. and to add to the stop and go image you are seeing now, i would like to add that the term "stop and go" is not accurate at all when it comes to driving a manual transmission car. its more like "clutch&brake, downshift, release, repeat" to stop and "clutch, shift, release clutch/accelerate, repeat" but i wonder if the length of the description is the reason for the basic term......now thats a thought to ponder. well bloggers, i just got an annoying phone call and it made me lose my train of thought. so im off to bed. peace.

Well, it has been quite some time since i have blogged it feels like. I have been on bed rest for pretty much a week now! I have pinched the sciatic nerve in my back and long story short, its some brutal pain. I have a hard time getting up, sitting down, standing, walking, or even laying. it hurts all the time. aleve and tylonol barely take the edge off it seems, and icy hot does little to nothing. I wonder if it is worth the medical debt to go see a doctor about it. hmmm.....all i know for sure is it hurts so damn bad. bad enough that it even gives me a stomach ache. i dunno about this folks, i think its a tad bit unfair. but i deal.
moving on to easter. This year was such a success in my book. I avoided the drama that is my family in slc. and even though I am extremely sad i did not spend easter with my family, I felt so comfortable just resting at home all night. so me and Reagan decided to do a little easter dinner, just the two of us. and it worked out so perfectly. I was far enough with dinner that i was able to pick him up from work, get home, put the finishing touches on, and eat up. I had never made a ham before, so i was a little nervous. but after creating the most amazing glaze, from scratch with no recipe i might add, i think the dinner turned out to be a total success. Reagan said it tasted amazing, and that was the goal. :) and on top of it, we had so much fun together. spending time enjoying each others company, and goofing around. :) it was such a lovely day.
and the final story to complete my blog, is the story of the mullet. I was offered an opportunity to get my hair cut for free by this amazing stylist at a really nice studio in SLC, and of course I jumped on the opportunity. so when i get to the salon and her boss describes the cut i am getting, i was a little nervous but very excited for a new look. afterwards however, i was not very pleased. to give you an idea of the before and after, i posted a pic of myself with my hair before the cut. not extremely long, but it has some length to it. now the girl took about 9 inches off the top, and by top i mean 80% of my hair, and took less than an inch off the remaining 20%. a little blow dry and some pomade later, and i looked like the picture shown. thats right kids, a straight up mullet. business in the front, party in the back. and no, i wasnt ready to party. i was miserable. so the next day i went to a gal at the local supercuts and she fixed me up right. and now, i look like this....(photos are posted in order of appearance)
