Business woman goin on a business trip!

Today my boss asked me if I wanted to go to Tennesse on a business trip! Do I ever, I was so excited. It's really a strange feeling that I'm actually old enough and suposidly knowledgable to go on a business trip. I actually have no idea what I'm going to do on it but I'm excited nonetheless. All I know is they already gave me a $100 check to cash so I can have cash with me and they gave the girl I'm going with a credit card for all of our purchases! We fly out monday morning and get back Saturday morning. I feel really bad though because the girl that started about a week and a half before me doesn't get to go. I almost felt like the Devil Wear Proda when she has to tell the girl she gets to go to France instead. Am I a complete jerk? Well I didn't have any say in it. So I'll have to let y'all know how it goes.

I had more car problems. UGGG I was just mad this time, it was my battery. Again I went out to go to work and my car wouldn't start. Luckily this time I listened to the spirit and went out earlier rather than just sit around in my house. I was able to walk to work on time. I'm debating whether to return the car or not. I don't know.

The boy drama...not a whole lot there. There are some cute kids in my ward nothing much has happened yet. Everyone is really slow out here. I will be patient though.

Well I guess that is all the adventures for now!

The New Adventrue: Spanish Fork

I've finally written a blog! Thanks to Crystal and Eliza. I've had this blog for about a month now I just haven't yet written anything. My adventure began about a week ago and already it has been quite the adventure. I had a great first day at work, I didn't mess anything up to terribly bad. Then Tuesday morning I go out to my newly purchased car (Toyota Corolla '05) and went to start it and it WON'T start. Immediately I start freaking out realizing I'm going to be late my 2nd day of work. So I start running/walking to work. I called me boss and left a message and said I'd get there as soon as possible, I made it only about 10 minutes late. I luckily only live about 9 blocks from my work. My boss was very kind and offered to help in any way. My dad came down on Wednesday and we towed my car to a shop turn out its the starter! This is why I spent more money for a nicer car so i wouldn't have these kinds of problems but what can you do? I finally got it fixed on Friday. This whole car episode did have it benefits though. I did get a couple rides from the cute kid that I work with, so it wasn't all bad ;) ;)

My job is going great though and I have finally figured out what the company that I work for actually does (it only took me 1 week to figure out!). Their clients are typically insurance companies and they collect payments from the person that was in an accident with the insurance client. Make sense? Well I am the administrative assistant and I do whatever random jobs need to be done. We also open claims and prepare them for the specialists. I really enjoy the people I work with we have a good time.

The wonderful and exciting singles ward...ok at first I was a little nervous but apparently all the good looking guys come in a little late, why is that? Anyway there are some really nice people and I think it will be a lot of fun. My roommate Shaela still needs a little convincing of the need for a social life. She isn't quite that excited about kick ball for FHE!

The Adventures of Spanish Fork will be continued...
