Poker time

So, Trav and I have been on a poker kick lately. It's been really fun! We are both so competitive so it's fun for us to get out and play some poker. Last night Trav didnt really feel like going, so I went by myself (No, I am not addicted. It is free and fun:)) How it works is they will start out with 6 or 7 tables...depending on the night...and then as people get out, they move andbreak everyone down until they get to one, MAIN table. Usually, when we play we make it to the last 2 or 3 tables. One time I got 7th place overall :)...that's right...THE MAIN TABLE! Anyway so once enough people get out, they have what is called a "side table." The winner of the side table gets to then move back into the main and they will give you the average number of chips everyone has so you are not like WAY behind. The second place winner of the table gets a bar tab which is so sweet because they have homeade pizza and it is fantastic :) (I've won the bar tab as well)

K, so now you understand fully what is going on here is the story!

Last night, I am sitting at the side table (It was actually the third one of the night because I stayed in the main for so long!!) and the FIRST HAND I am dealt pocket 4's.

BAM. Pocket 4's.

--On a sidetable people get craaasssie. At least one person goes all in per hand so if you win a hand, it's really good. So, I'm here with my pocket fours. Blinds were one and two, so I pay my two. Someone raises to 8 total. I figure what the hell...I might as well call it. So, I match their 8. We see the flop.

BAM! The flop.

He checks. card. I'm at two pair. Pretty good. Two really low pairs, but still good. Maybe I'll get a boat.

The turn comes.

He bets 1200. I'm already in it. I'm sitting with two pair. He usually calls and bets crazy stuff. I got this.

Here's the river!

He goes all in. I HAVE to call. I've got the boat! Thank God...This is a HUGE pot!!
I call and push all of my chips forward.
We show.
His hand- 10, 2.
My hand- 4's.
WE. BOTH. HAD. THE. BOAT. Only...he had the 10's. I lost the FIRST hand with a full house!!! Crap, crap, crappppy!

Today. I. Killed. A. Spider.

Yes. It's true.

I am not lying. I feel like this is a big step in my life. Like something I can cross off of the "To Do Before I Die" list. Because...that's just not something I would normally do.

Like this one time when I lived with my Grandparents...I was up at 5:30 in the morning getting ready for work. I had just got done showering and I was blow drying my hair. All of a sudden I see a ginormous spider HAULING BUM accross the floor, MY BEDROOM FLOOR! It was a crisis. I jumped on my bed because I have lead myself to believe that I am safe up there. I had no other choice but to call Grandma, who was asleep. And upstairs.


(Sounds tired) Yes?? Are you okay? Is everything alright?

No :( I need you to come down here please..

For what? It is 5:30 in the everything okay?

No. Grandma, can you please come and kill this spider so I can finish getting ready for work? Please..I cannot get off of my bed until he is gone and he is moving really quickly, please Grandma!!

Or, like the time there was a spider in my room and no one was home to kill him so I watched him for as long as I could stand to and finally had to leave and didnt sleep in my bed for a month.

Or, like the time we were at girls camp and we were staying in spider INFESTED cabins (Okay, I only found two spiders when I did my check, but that is plenty!) and it was bed time and I insisted we sleep with the lights on so I could keep an eye out all night and we tried it for an hour and no one else could sleep so they made up a big fat lie and told me that spiders go to sleep and stop moving when the lights are turned off and that only halfway held me over through the morning.

Yeah. Those examples. THEY are like me. I cannot stand spiders!!!!!!!

This morning while I was getting ready, I seen a spider crawling on the shower curtain approximately 6 inches away from me.

I need to take a moment to thank God that I had stepped out of the shower 5 minutes prior to that and I didnt have a spider encounter in the shower. Those are not good.

My first thought??
I will have to call in sick today. I cannot get ready in the bathroom. No, I can't call in sick..What do I do??

I had to find a way to kill the spider. Also, to make things that much better for me....this just happened to be a morning where I was in a pretty big hurry to get ready to get to work on time!


After standing there, watching him for 5 minutes I figured out that there was NO WAY I was going to attempt to kill him when he was not on a solid surface. So, I stepped outside of the bathroom and started blow drying my hair while watching Mr. Spider. Eventually he made his way to the top of the curtain where the bar is and I figured now was my only chance. I grabbed probably way more toilet paper than I needed, gathered the might, and BAM! Smashed him.

Next (One of my biggest things, no matter who kills the spider is that I have to actually SEE the dead spider, or problem is not solved.) I throw the toilet paper in the garbage and go and grab Travis's shoe (shhh...) to poke it to see if there is a spider in there.

There. was. not. :( Back to square one. (I think this counts as killing TWO spiders)
He disappeared for about 3 minutes, all of which I spent sitting on my bed waiting for him to re-appear. Finally he did...of course on the shower curtain worries...It's not like I have a job to go to or anything...Take your time Mr. Spider :) He then decides it is time to crawl onto the side of the tub. I had to hurry! Trav's shoe did not leave my hand this entire time so I went into the bathroom and gathered up my might again and BAM! Squished him. The good news...this time it worked :) I even verified it. His leg was on Travis's shoe. :)

I feel so accomplished. However, I don't think I will try that anymore.

PS: My Grandma came downstairs, at 5:30 in the morning, and killed the spider for me :) What a great Grandma!

Trey's bath experience!

lol he's not a huge fan of taking a bath!

Story time...SO, Trav and I are giving him a bath. For the most part he is's just not his favorite past time. So, I'm telling him "Good Boy!! I am going to go get you a treat because you are being so good!" I turn the corner to go and get him a treat and all of a comes Trey, following me!! He jumped OUT of the tub, while Travis was rinsing him off much for towel drying :S I think he might be plotting his escape in this picture!

All clean and trying to look tough!

Awwwww...I love him!

He is getting SO big!

New Years pictures!

Happy aka Crappy New Year

I havent wanted to write this post because I try to stay away from negativeness on the blog but I havent blogged about our new year yet!

So far in 2009:
Car got broken into= loss of 80 ipod, cell phone (along with sim card and extra memory card), and ipod car charger/adapter.
Debit card lost/stolen.
Vikings lose to the Eagles in the first playoff game.
Had to call the bank and close the debit card and request for a new one to be sent, it should be 10 days before we receive it. 10 days without a debit card. How exciting.
Checks no longer work at places that run them as debit. (We found this out yesterday after driving 45 mins on horrible roads AND after shopping for dinner and waiting in line to check out.)
Lost my favorite adidas perfume.
Accidentally stepped in the FREEZING snow with my bare foot, (Don't ask)

Other than those things, the new year has been fantastic :) New Years Eve was really fun, we went to our friends house and hung out with them plus a few others! We made homeade pigs in a blanket, which turned out delicious!! Our friends have a little two year old that cracks me up! It was so much fun playing with her throughout the night! Kids that age say and do the funniest things!! I will post pictures of that night however her pictures NEVER show a smile! lol...she will see a camera, and say pictures, but she hates them!! haha...I'll post them later today, I dont have my camera with me right now!

Maybe we're just getting all of the mishaps out of the way this week and then the rest of the year will be fantastic :) Yep, that's the plan!
