Summer is right around the corner and with that comes........dun dun dun...SUMMER CAMP!!!!!

I am nervous because I heard that the kids are absolute brats and get into fist fights daily (maybe an exaggeration), and I don't feel prepared to deal with that kind of crap.

We go on 4 field trips per week...It's gonna rock! My camp counselors are bomb and are super pumped as well.

I can't wait to sing songs, go to the Pacific Science Center, Whidby Island, and take 2 whole weeks off!

Today I had the first part of my performance evaluation with my supervisors. It went well. I told them that my goal is to be a Director 3, not a Director 2, and so we'll see. I pretty much already do the Director 3's job, that he sucks at, and I would be much better at...so...whatever.

Adam's family will also be around alot this summer. That's going to be fun! Andrew and his fiancee are going to live out here, and his parents will be here for 2 weeks in July! We're going up to Canada to spend the 4th of July with my folks on Vancouver Island.

Last night I played p-p-p-poker against about 30 of Adam's co-workers. I won 30 dollars and I made a really intense player mad because I didn't realize it was such a big deal to have 4 of a kind hahahaha....Oh well. It was fun!

In other news...

-I have started to read the Twilight series, and I must say, I really do like them. The movie is pretty low-budget, but the net one will be much better, I think.

-I have no desire to work out anymore. I NEED INSPIRATION AND MOTIVATION...big time.

-It's spring cleaning time and we are cleaning the house like crazy. It is taking much longer than when we lived in the apartment :S That is to be expected, though.

-I worked at Healthy Kids Day at the YMCA this weekend, and I did a little bit of Zumba, and a little bit of Hula Dancing, in front of lots of people. It was fun. my boss (whose finger I nearly cut off), took pictures of me that I am sure are quite embarrassing.

-Next weekend, Adam and I are going to Canada! Whoohoo!

-I really badly need to buy a one piece bathing suit and a backpack for summer camp:)

-Speaking of summer camp, I can't wait! We go on four field trips a week around the Puget Sound. Basically, I show up at 8, leave and go on a field trip all day, come back round 4, and go home and repeat the next day. That's going to be so much fun!

-I love my animals:) This month is Prevention of Cruelty to Animals month, and at work on Friday, the kids and my co-workers and I dressed up in orange and wrote letters to a local no-kill shelter. It was fun.


How is everyone else? What's new?

Does everyone have bosses who do not listen when they say that "we are here to listen to you"?

Today we took Mocha to a dog park. Not just any dog park, but a 40-acre dog park that was full of dogs being so happy and free. I loved it. It was free, and other than driving 40 minutes to get there, was well worth it. Mocha was pretty shy and snobby towards other dogs, and they mostly left her alone. Of all the hundreds of other dogs there, we didn't see any other Shelties. I thought they were more popular than that....? i definitely want to take Mocha back there, maybe even next weekend?? It was fabulous. It is called Marymoor Park, and I love it.

Last week I turned my resume in to the Associate Executive at the YMCA so that I could be considered for the Youth Development Program Director position. Basically, my boss is quitting and they are hiring, and I have been encouraged by several people (including my boss), to apply for the job...so I might as well. I would love to have her job, but it will be very hard and stressful, but it fulfills some longing that I have to be in charge and be responsible. I am not satisfied in my current position and crave more responsibility....So...We'll see. I have an initial interview on Tuesday with Cory (the Associate Exec. Director), and if I make it through that, I will have a panel interview with four or five other people.

How is everyone else doing??? Is MN cold? What about Cali? I miss you all and hope that things are going well for everyone. Tell me how your lives are!
