So Gunnar was storing his BMW at my parents house for while because he moved to Chicago and couldnt take it with him. He's driving the camaro and the GTO is tore apart in the garage at his mom's house and there wasnt anywhere to store the BMW there. My whole family was out of town this past weekend; Pat at his house in Waterford, Matt down visiting a friend in S. Indiana, and my parents were out here visitng me. So they all get back to find that someone broke into the BMW....WTF!! First, I live in frickin' Hartland not Detroit......who does that?, Secondly thats scary to me because I was going to store my car there this winter while I drove my winter car.....dont see that happening now, Third they MUST have been watching the house to know that no one was home. People are always in and out of there constantly and they had to have noticed that, Fourth its a good thing that nobody was home because we have a few pretty nice vehicles in the family (WS6 ta, Malibu, Alero, Envoy, my car...) and they were looking for parts to seel off and could have gotten some really good stuff off the rest of those cars, and Fith its another good thing that they didnt look into the garage when they were there.....they would have seen the Prosch and then possibly gotten the bright idea to break into the house too!!!
Its so frickin' crazy.....I was shocked when Gunnar told me today (yes I heard from him, not my family) because I would have never expected someone to break into something at our house like that. I feel really bad too because its not even his house and his car was the one that got broke into.
Well on another note looks like the 27th may be my departure date from here....part of me is ready to come home and part of me really is going to miss this summer and this job and the people from here. It'll def. be interesting to get back into Midland and back to my life as a broke college student, it has been nice having money this summer thats for sure.
Its getting to the end of the day so I'm going to bid you all farewell....

I am in a sorority
and I try to explain all the
things a sorority is
that they cannot see.
A sorority is more than
on a sweatshirt, I say.
More than traditional songs,
a golden pin, rituals,
an obligation, or
a way of life.
A sorority is learning
A sorority is giving
without expecting a return.
A sorority is earning
respect from others,
as well as for yourself.
A sorority will not solve
all your problems.
But I have made good friends
and found confidence there,
to help me take life
at a time.
I've heard it said a sorority is a waste of time; but I know better...
For I have seen the love and walked in the splendor of sisterhood...
Blinked at the brilliance and beheld the rose and the diamond.
I've heard the cheerful songs of the frolicking pledges...
Heard the low laughter of puzzled actives and the everlasting chuckle of glee in the air.
I've heard it said that a sorority is a dull, selfish place; It can't be true...
I've seen the affection, watched it fill my heart, the very air...
And I have learned the Creed polished and spotless from end to end,
And I have watched the sororities' devotion drape each and every active and pledge to look like nature's freshly-granted love nourishing growth...
I've heard it said that a sorority is harmful, but they are wrong...
For I know my sisters...
Watched them strive to save a cause, spend of themselves...
and I've watched them hope, dream and aspire, side by side...
I've heard them say these things, but I would disagree...
Because for every shadow I have seen a hundred rays of light...
For every plaintive note I've heard a symphony of joy...
For every pennyweight of bad, I've found a ton of good...
Good in nature, in people, in my sorority...
I'm so thankful I belong.
Jus twanted to post a quick lil thing I found about greek life and it made me think of all my sisters that I love so much and how I cant wait to see them all in a couple weeks :) I love you girls and we're going to have an awesome year this year!!
Current Mood: cant wait to see my sisters!!!
HOW TO STAY YOUNG
1. Throw out nonessential numbers. This includes age, weight and height. Let the doctors worry about them. That is why you pay them.
2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. "An idle mind is the devil's workshop." And the devil's name is Alzheimer's.
4. Enjoy the simple things.
5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.
6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. The only person, who s with us our entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.
7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is your refuge.
8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.
9 Don't take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.
10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every opportunity.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

I have had an awesome weekend with my parents. We went to the mall of america yesterday and to the Como Park Zoo. Horton, where I work, sponsors the polar bears so we went to see them and there was a baby giraffe :) it was soooo cute. Today we went to Taylors Falls which is on the Mississippi river and we took a boat tour down part of the river and spent a few hrs climbing on the rock formations. That was sooo cool and beautiful. I am beat now (proves to me that I need to start working out) but it was definaty worth it. We're getting a late light dinner tonight and then back to work tomorrow for me. I get to go to a trade show vendor tomorrow morning though so that'll help the day to go by faster and not seem so slow and boring (yes I'm still spending my days calling semi dealers).
Well time to go get some food...have a good night all

Former Wings Coach Dave Louis has accepted a scout job with the Detroit Red Wings...
Just a quick update ;)
August 9th, 2005
Well I answered my own quetion from earlier's post....I should have suspected that the cuplret to this horrific re-instatement would be the one and only Mr. Gary Bettman. His bad decisions just keep stacking up ontop of one another. Gary Bettman is a horrible horrible man and needs to be banished from the NHL. Here's the link to the article on yahoo sports about it all:
I like the comment about Bertuzzi's banishment lasting 17 months while Moors injuries could possibly (most likely) keep him off the ice FOREVER!!! YOU RUINED A MANS LIFE!! YOU SHOULD NEVER BE ALBE TO STRAP ON ANOTHER PAIR OF SKATES AGAIN!!! grrrrrr
The more and more I read the more upset I get...
Oh a lighter note I mentioned yesterday that Gretzky is going to be coaching the Coyotes. Well as we all knew there would be some people are saying that he wont be able to meed the demands as a coach and will flop but my dear buddy Scotty Bowman stands behind him all the way :) which really makes me happy because I think Gretzky will be a great coach and if someone like Scotty, the all time winningest coach, will stand behind him than that means something. Here's the article on that too. I think its a good one so I thought I'd share.
Nice little article on how Joy Osgood (chris's mom) has said how happy her son is to be coming back to Detroit. Time to welcome the new beg. with open arms. No matter what this season is a season of change for EVERY team and we need to welcome all changes because everyone is just testing the water right now...
Work is boring today if you cant tell...I'm sick of calling dealerships...
Current Mood: but excited for hockey!
Tood Bertuzzi has been re-instated after being suspended INDEFINITELY by the NHL in March of 2004. Not sure why his indefinite suspension turned into "well its okay for him to come back now". Typically when you break someones frickin' neck from a cheep punch from behind out of play you wouldnt be reconsidered as a "good person" and that is exactly what they are telling him by letting him back on the ice. I hope someone breaks his neck so he can know the pain and turmoil that Moore went through after that game. This announcement really gets to me and make me wonder 1) who made this decision and 2) what they were smoking when they did. It is shuch a black mark on the league to know that they let someone who intentionaly hurt someone back into the league. No he didnt mean to break his neck but when he skated up behind Moore and punched him in the right side of his head/neck he did intend to do harm. Moore had no clue he was even coming becuase he had his back to Bertuzzi as the blow came. It was such a sad day in the sport and to let him back into the league makes me sick.
Anyway enough of my ranting...nothing too new has happened so far today just that Paul Kariya has moved to Nashville.
Yesterday started out to be a wonderful day celebrating a year and 1/2 with Justin and Osgood coming back to Detroit I was pretty happy but I do have to say I went to bed pretty pissed off last night for some reasons. I dont like being lied to and I hate the effect that alcohol has on some people in a negative way. If you're drinking and going to be a jerk dont call me because hanging up on me wont make me very happy....grrr
Well back to making phone calls to dealers...maybe more hockey updates later

|12:55 pm - Detroit Red Wings|
And the craziness we call the NHL contines as The Great One singes up to coach the Coyotes this fall. Who will be his assistant coach(s) you ask? None other than the Mr. Barry Smith that we have watched for the past few years under Scotty Bowman...yes the Wings old coach has packed his bags for a warmer climate and a chance to work again under a great person (a man that could possibly be not only be the greatest hockey player ever but give scotty and toe blake a running for greatest coach ever...I can see it).
Currently our Red Wings have 12 players under contract tying up $26.58 million of the allowed $38. They still need roughly 11 players (est. $1 million each? that'll be tough) inclduing Datsyuk or Zetterberg (cant afford both) a few more defensemen and a goalie (Chris Osgood is now the prime contender now that Khabibulin has been snatched up. Hatcher went to the Flyers along with Forsberg (that's going to be a tough team). Dandenault went to the Canadiens, and McCarty went to the Flames where I think he'll be a good fit, they're a rough and tumble kinda team.
Oh well...thats all I've got for today for NHL updates (there is a lot more I just dont feel like typing it all). Just under 2 months till the 1st game of the season!!!
