Apparently I don't have a green thumb like my sister's fiance.

Remember that talk by President Uchtdorf, Forget Me Not? Around Easter time I was at Target (I love that place), and I saw some forget-me-not flowers in the little pots. I decided to buy some for my sisters, mom and I. I was excited to plant these and watch them grow because I have never really grew anything before. I followed the instructions: wetting the soil, pushing the seeds into the soil, watering them and placing them next to sunlight. The next day after I started this is what I saw...




Oh I was so excited! And then a couple days later...




More of them started sprouting. I thought to myself this is so exciting. I can totally do this! Then about a week later, actually I'm not sure, yeah probably about a week. It was getting tall.



By now I wasn't seeing any drastic change. It was the weekend and my aunt went out of town and asked me to watch her "babies", 2 dogs and a cat. When I got home Sunday night I remembered that I had some forget-me-nots. Unfortunately I forgot them. *sad face*




I killed them. And I was doing so well! Needless to say I don't have a green thumb. I think it's kind of ironic that I forgot about the forget-me-nots.

Most annoying sounds at work!

Ok I wasn't going to do this but I can't take it anymore... GAH!! Most days at work its very peaceful, the sounds I usually hear are people walking up and down the stairs, the click of me pushing the button to let someone in the door and my music being played quietly in the background. Today is NOT one of those days.

Work is expanding to the suite next door so we have had many contractors and businesses coming in and helping with the expansion. The telephone warehouse guys are awesome! I'm not liking the ADT people, they are not mean they are actually very nice but the noise is the MOST ANNOYING noise ever!! The control pad is in the front next to my desk. All day it has been beeping. Sometimes a couple short beeps which isn't too bad. But the LONG continuous beep is beginning to be untolerable. And there is to goes again... I'm glad that I only have 30 minutes left at work. Yes I'm typing this at work but I have nothing to do and I don't want to go nuts. Hence the rant.

Another annoying sound at work would be when the copier beeps continuously and says, "Feed me paper!!" No it doesn't actually say that but that beep is annoying. Or when you are done scanning something and leave the paper on the glass. Yep! I've come to the conclusion that I don't like things that BEEP.

I think I'm flatter?

Today at work a guy came in and asked if we were hiring. I always think to myself when people go door to door and end up at my work looking for a job I’m pretty sure that they won’t qualify. I know that sounds bad but I work with Environmental Engineers! This instance wasn’t any different. My boss had told me about a website that we can send them to because we don’t except applications here, that goes through Corporate. I kindly give him our generic card with the website on it that he should go to, to look for our openings. At this point I was very grateful that my boss was standing at my desk as well.
 
About 20 minutes later the phone rang, (haha the phone actually just rang as I’m typing this). I answer it because that’s part of my job, the number was unavailable. The guy on the other end asked if I was the receptionist. Yes… He then proceeded to ask me out on a date, he wasn’t going to ask me out with “that lady” aka my boss was standing at my desk. The only thing that popped into my head of how to reject him was that I had a boyfriend. I felt that was the kindest way than saying, “I’m sorry a prerequisite to date me would be to have a job.” (That’s what the guys at work told me I should have told him.) I’m not that mean. I told him I was flattered and that I had to get back to work. Apparently because you are dating someone (in my case “dating” someone) still means that I’m available if I don’t have any kids with the guy. Really?! The guy kept asking me questions and I quickly hung up the phone. The creepy thing is that he now knows where I work!
