AFI @ The Roseland 08/04/17

So, I love only one band more than AFI..and as we all know that is Pearl Jam…so I fucking love AFI! They have meant so much to me over the years ever since I discovered them as a teen. Along with PJ they got me through some of the most difficult times. My husband and my daughter and I went. My husband did not enjoy it…Chyann and I didn’t enjoy the first two bands at all either, but AFI! They were on fire! Chyann didn’t know them going in, but she fell in love with them. I am so happy I could introduce her to a band that I love so much and she loved them too. It was a very special experience because it was her first concert. ❤ ❤ ❤ We were way up close to start. But after the first few songs by the second band, people were pushing and thrashing around and it was so fucking hot and I experienced claustrophobia for the first time ever. So we had to move to the back of the crowd. So I could get some air. But even though I had to move to the back, I still could not have had a better time…unless the first two bands had not performed, because in my opinion they were terrible. lol But here are my favorite pictures of the night.

 

This last pic is from the stall wall when I went pee…I found it picture worthy because that is my name…Amanda Michelle…lol

Here are the couple of videos I got…the opening of the show with Miss Murder…

And the beginning of Silver and Cold…

 

I love this band so much! AFI, Davey Havok, Hunter Burgan, Jade Puget and Adam Carson. Thank you for being there, for understanding and for giving the world everything you have to offer!

Promotion…

FINALLY I got the details…just shortly after posting to FB about how I was so frustrated I was near tears…yup it was not a good Monday morning.

so tomorrow I start 7-3 and this will be my new schedule unless they discover any conflicts but I don’t think it will be an issue. And I start training with Daniel on backhauls tomorrow for the next two weeks, and when Tommy gets back from Vacation on the 24th, I will train with him on Safety admin.

 

It’s only taken over 3 freaking months, but FINALLY!!!! So I can stop being stressed over it.

 

And after training with Daniel…I will be getting my own desk…I will get to take over his. 🙂 Finally my own space that I don’t think I will have to share…but I might still have to share it with Daniel…since he’ll be a night shift supervisor….I’m not sure. We shall see. But that won’t be so bad, because he’s clean and doesn’t even have any decor at his desk. lol

Bored stiff

I have been training my replacement for my current job/duties at work and she is doing really well so I am kinda just sitting here getting paid to look over her shoulder and play on my phone. Because I don’t have a computer now she has what was mine. I asked my supervisor about that and he said he would check on getting my computer… I told him she is doing really well and I am really bored. Lol I feel bad, too, because I am not making much of a contribution right now. And the day is going by so slowly. 

My allergies kicked in on Monday and got to be awful. The worst attack I have had in probably 12 years. My nose and my right eye are just running. I haven’t even been ablebto wear make up to work this week because of my eye. Its a little better today, but yesterday was the most miserable day. 

I bought new clothes and shoes this last weekend. I got leggings… I am never wearing real pants again! Lol


I hope everyone had a: 

I am sleepy now because I had a headache and took some benadryl for it. I am still shocked how well that works. I wish I had known that years ago. I would rather be sleepy than have a pounding headache! 

Cant wait for my new schedule to start! 

Oh and I made this the other day. These guys are my top 5… they are my “hall pass” list… my hubby and I each have one. Not that we really would… but its funny. Left to right, in case you don’t know all of them: Tom Hardy, Christian Kane, Eddie Vedder, Jensen Ackles and Chris Hemsworth. Yummy! Lol

Alrighty, I guess that’s it for now… 

Don’t be so infantile… 

So I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I had a favorite driver at work. He was my favorite because he would joke with me and when he would come in he would always say to the other drivers at check in… “you know, I’m her favorite!” and he was adorable. He was my favorite for his silliness and jokes. I never told him he was my favorite… he came up with that on his own. Well about two months ago, I was having a conversation with my coworker and he interjected himself into the convo. I argued with his view on events because we both know the person and from a fellow truck drivers perspective it went one way and from administrations perspective it went another and technically we are both right. But apparently its not OK to disagree with him. He hasn’t spoken to me since that day.

This week I started training my replacement because I am starting a job in the department with different duties. Today when she checked him in, he talked to her. And that upset me. Not on her part… but on his. But I sure as hell wouldn’t let him know it. He wants to be an asshole, he can be… but I will not let him see that I am bothered by it. 

On Tuesday, when I introduced her to him… I said, “this is ___, he no longer speaks to me.” he didn’t say a damn thing to that. 

If he is wants to be an asshat, he can expect it right back and I will do the bare minimum of my job as it pertains to him and I will not be nice about it. 

Today’s Mantra

“You have a three day weekend, you have a three day weekend, you have a three day weekend!!!”

Just keep repeating that over and over, because I am not having a good day. Driver’s are making me want to scream.

2 breakdowns and one driver answered to say he’d let me know when he was done with his own route…and he’s sick, and has been since last week and still isn’t feeling good, and so I feel really bad about even asking him. He’s off the hook we sent a new driver to help the one guy and the other guy…I told him I couldn’t get the driver he asked me to reach and he wasn’t surprised…and really neither was I because that guy is an ass!

Anyway, I am so over this day!

Been a little while…

So a bunch of crap going on with my daughter still.

Found out my Pearl Piggy, my ACD, is deaf. She is my little love! We are going to start working with hand signals to train her. We kinda thought she just didn’t inherit the Heeler intelligence because she is a mix. And I told some people that and that we thought that because after 2 years she didn’t know her name still. They suggested she might be deaf. That thought had never even crossed our minds, because she reacts to things. But we discovered after watching her, she reacts when she sees Autzen, our other dog react, or because she can feel a vibration, such as the vibration when one of our cars pulls up in the driveway. so the vet did some tests yesterday and said her ears flinched but there was no other reaction so he thinks she can hear some frequency but most likely is nearly completely deaf. Someone else told me she needs to be BAER tested, but that really only determines just HOW deaf she is…we already know she is deaf…and it makes so much sense now why she has been so hard to train. I feel the BAER test would just be a waste of money. I don’t really care HOW deaf she is, I just know she is deaf.

And I got my Pearl Jam tattoo completed. I added Stickman to my three crooked hearts. ❤
