I Don’t Know What to Say

30 05 2009

I just don’t know.

Day started off fine.  I went to work and the kids for the pool party showed up way early so we had to get on the chair as soon as we had enough guards (like no joke, the middle school showed up half an hour before the guards were supposed to show up)  They were easy though.  I guess it was all of the kids that never went to detention this school year and we had plenty of guards.  It was to the point that we were on the chair for an hour and on break for an hour.

I made cookies today.  They turned out pretty decent.  I made snickerdoodle ones.  I delivered them to a few other people so I know they enjoyed the treats.

Hung out with Daniel for a little bit.  It was kinda boring.  He got ticked off cuz Lexie ditched out.  When he is mad, he isn’t all that perky. (he isn’t perky at all to begin with)

I went to go work out for a bit.  Ok, longer than a bit.  I was there for two hours.  but when I got done I had a text message from a friend saying how mad she was that I wasn’t at her graduation.  I’m not going to my sister’s so how is it fair if I went to this graduation and not my sister’s.  it all makes sense in my head.  Then I guess I don’t respond to all of her text messages.  If I remember right, most of them I get while I am asleep or working.  I do respond when I can but I’m not going to have my phone on the chair while watching the water.  1. If anything goes wrong (someone gets hurt or dies) cuz I was texting, it is on my head, and 2. if I have to jump in my phone would drown.

I really should go to bed.  I work 10 hours tomorrow and 13 hours on Sunday.

oh yea, another good tidbit of the day was that it was payday.  I like payday.  I got paid once a month so it is exciting to see how much my hard work is worth.


New Haircut

28 05 2009


I’m sorry it took forever to get a picture of my new haircut on here.  It is here now.  I had 2-3 inches cut off and layers put in again.  I then put in blonde and light brown highlights in it.

Extremely Bored

26 05 2009

So I am currently sitting in my room being bored.  I can’t go to bed yet because people might call me in a little bit.

I guess I did do stuff tonight.  I went on a walk with Samantha and then went to go play scrabble with Travis, Zeth, and Jenelle.  They all went to go work out at club 24.  I swear out of all my friends I am the only one without a membership.  They said they would get ahold of me if they did anything afterwards but still.

I am trying to decide if I want to get a membership.  It would cost me $30 a month because I am only here for three more months.

Save #1

26 05 2009

I had my first save today.

First of all, let me tell you that it was not a happy day.  It might have seemed warm out but their was a breeze all day.  The water was freezing and it was extremely busy with a lot of stupid people.

So we finally pull beach to the side because it was freezing in there.  All of a sudden this little girl (probably 3 yrs old) starts to freak out.  This is happening in about 2 1/2 ft of water.  So I have to jump in to grab this girl.  She grabs ahold of me crying that she wants her mom and I just hold her and say in her ear that everything is ok.  As soon as we get to the side of the pool her mom shows up and says thank you.  REALLY???  SHOULDN”T YOU BE WATCHING YOUR KID???  I didn’t say that but I was so thinking it.  Why would you let a kid that small go play in a pool without supervision.  As a lifeguard I can’t watch every single kid every second.  Other people are seriously ignorant.  My job is not easy.  If anything goes wrong, it is on my shoulders.  not cool.

Oh, to make it worse, it was seven in the evening at it was cold and I cut my toe somehow.

Opening Day

23 05 2009

So today was the opening day of the pool.  We had our orientation this morning.  I knew everything cuz I have worked before.

Then we had the opening day.  It was a decent day so We had a lot of people there.  It was absolutely crazy there.  We didn’t have a huge problem with young kids.  We had more problems with rough housing.  Like no joke.  they were dumb.

I also took brownies into work.  Everyone loved it.

Triple Chocolate Cake

19 05 2009

I made really good cake tonight.  It was a triple chocolate cake that I got out of a magazine.  The magazine was simple and delicious by taste of home.  The recipe said that each serving cost about $0.45.

Triple Chocolate Cake

1 pkg white cake mix
1/3 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 cup sour cream
2/3 cup canola oil
2 Tbsp baking cocoa
1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chocolate frosting
2 Tbsp milk

  • In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, sugar, eggs, sour cream, and oil.  Beat on low for 1 minute; beat on medium for 2 minutes.  Pour half of the batter into a large bowl.  Stir in cocoa until blended.  Gold chocolate chips into white cake batter.
  • Spoon batter alternately into a greased and floured 10 in fluted tube pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • In a small bowl, combine frosting and milk.  Spoon over top of cooled cake.

12 servings.

Weekend Update

19 05 2009

So lets see.  my weekend was…


  • worked at the pool painting it white
  • went to the farmers market with my mom and sister
  • went to Dean’s and got myself new flip flops for lifeguarding season
  • went to Daniel’s house to hang out with him.  One of his friends (a girl) was all jealous thinking something was going on between us.  No, he and I are only friends and we will stay that way.  I did help him fix his dryer and we watched weeds.


  • helped at the Hershey’s track meet (see past post)
  • took my brother out for lunch because he spent all day up there with me.
  • took a long nap
  • went and visited Samantha and we talked for awhile


  • went to church
  • watched half of Win a Date with Tad Hamilton (really cheesy, I know)
  • went to McKay Park and threw a frisbee around with Zeth
  • Alex had us go on a long walk with her.  My feet were dying because I was wearing flip flops and now have multiple blisters on my feet
