Joy to the World

I forgot to post...oldie but still good!

I love Christmas! I'm such a fat kid....I look forward to all the parties with all the yummy treats!  Re-cap for Thanksgiving we went to the ranch in Provo.  We didn't get there until late Thanksgiving night....the poor cows got sick at Sters parents house and 5 of them died.  I felt bad for the poor little cows.  I hate when animals die and I was also sad that all the yummy meat went to waste! I love the meat that his parents give us! Its the best beef I have ever had!!! Any who Thanksgiving was good.  We played in the snow and did a little shopping.  I love to spend time with family.  I also got a chance to talk with Grandma Ercanbrack.  I love her.  She is so sweet.  We talked a lot about cooking.  That woman knows how to COOK!

The week after Thanksgiving was my 25th BIRTHDAY! YAHOO!  I wasn't sure what Ster was getting but he surprised me BIG! He bought us tickets to go to Arizona to visit Andrea! I have the best husband.  Two years ago Ster proposed to me on my birthday.... it was the best birthday ever.  Well I never thought that he would be able to top that experience  and he mostly likely never will because that was a once in a lifetime thing but he did come close. We left for AZ the next day.  I was so excited that we didn't have to go to work for the next week and that we would just get to play! We had a blast with Andrea and Paul.  They know how to show a good time to us Idahoans.  We went out to dinner lots, we went to a Suns  game, went to a Christmas carnival,  went to Sadona, and saw lots of pretty dessert.  We just had tons of fun together.

When we got back from our trip we only had to work one week before Christmas vacation.  I just couldn't wait to be off work again and have more fun with my hubby.  I was so excited to go snowboarding.  I got a new freakin sweet board and Ster got new skis.  I couldn't wait to try out my new ride.  I got a flying V Burton board.  I'm in love with it!

So here is how the weekend starts off.....My first day of Christmas vacation was on Friday.  I'm so happy...I don't have to work for two weeks! I have a great day doing not too the house....just chilling....well then I go do some errands.....then I go to get my oil changed.  Well I never saw it coming but this was the WORST oil change customer service experience that I have ever had!!!!! I call the Quick Loop to make sure I didn't get ripped off.  Then the lady precedes to tell that they also wash your windows and vacuum your car.  Um yeah now of that I went back to get it done.  The Manager tells me that my car is done.....I walk out....they vacuumed it but didn't clean the windows.  OK....REALLY! I drove back there to once again only get half the service that they told me they provided! So I poked my head in the door and as kindly as POSSIBLE I told him that they didn't clean my windows and as a customer I felt like I shouldn't have to ask them to do something that they offered! I told him that I didn't want to done.  He then freaked out at me telling me to leave.  He said even if I wanted the windows cleaned they refused to do it. I was shocked at this point as the man is yelling at me and shussing me out the door.  I told him that he needs to stop offering things to his customers that hes not willing to do.  I got my car held it together for about 3 seconds until i pulled out and then i just started crying out of CONTROL! REALLY MICHELLE! Yes i cried over an oil change and a man yelling at me.  I have gone crazy and may need to be taken to the loony bin.  The man was super rude....I was super mad and it was just so silly.  I have moved on and maybe in a few months I will laugh about this silly moment in my life that seemed like attack on Michelle Ercanbrack.

So once that event ended I went to work at the Nook.  I was still distrot about the events of the day but I was trying to keep it together.  I was serving this table of men.  They are all locals.  They just kept getting round after round after round.  Well they were all so drunk.  Fine they want to have a great time...well good for them.  Well then I got upset when I saw all of them leave and DRIVE away!  Yes, they all drove home drunk.  Normally in life I never really thought about drunk driving until I got the job with the school.  I'm constantly reading about drunk drives and all the damage that they do to themselves and others.  It has become such a sad thing to me that people are so selfish in this world.  That they risk other peoples lives because they don't want to call a cab or find another way home.   It just really bothered me.  Rough day i guess.

Saturday morning comes.  I was so excited because we were going up to the ski hill.  So we leave on the way Ster tells me someone stole 500 bucks from out account! Ok, back to  why are people so selffish.  I try not to think about it.  We get up the the mountain.  I go to put my snow pants on...oh wait I forgot them at home.  Ok, well I will rent some.  I try to find snow pants.  None! Ok, I'll get my new board mounted with my bindings.  Yeah they don't have the kit that I need to do it, so I can't mount my bindings. this point Ster and I are at rock bottom.  Ster hates me but I hate myself even more.  We have been looking forward to riding since summer.  We are totally bummed.  We decide to go home and try another day.  On the way home Jedd told us how to mount my board a getto way.  We get home grab my pants and go back up to the hill.

Moral of the story.  Yes, it was a horrible 24 hours for me....but life does go on.  When we finally went on a run the attitude of the day totally changed.  None of the things that happened were important.  They were just little bumps along the way to help us see how lucky we are.  My life is so easy.  I'm healthy...I have the best hubby....I have a great family.....the gospel and I have everything that I need in life.  Yes, at times I think about what I don't have but really those things don't matter.  I so thankful that I have a best friend to share every moment with no matter if they are happy or sad.  They are great because I have him by my side.  I love you sugar!
