Park Silly Market, silly

My friend Tony, invited me to go to Park City last Sunday. I was like heck yeah! I wanna go! Since it was my first weekend off from work. I thought for sure I needed to get out and do something fun for once. So I said Yes! and we headed out, Tony drove up took us only an hour to get from the valley to Park City. That day was pretty hot, but when we got into Park City it felt nice but it wasn't like the sun was beating on our backs. Luckily, I wore shoes and sunscreen I knew it we would be walking a lot and be under sun for quite some time.
 When we arrived in to town, we parked in the high school parking lot so we can take the bus. The bus offered free bus ride to downtown Park City, it was better this way because downtown parking is hard to find and expensive.
 By the time we arrived near downtown, it looked very busy already with people, and vendors. We just started walking up and down mainstreet checking out what people sold. I saw a lot of ceramics, handmade soaps, some vegetables, random stuff and even bread. We ended up in the food vendors section, we were thirsty so we treated ourselves to some drinks. I had a mimosa and Tony had a bloody mary. After our drinks we looked a bit more and thought why not another drink before lunch, so we had another one in a bar called The Cabin. Of course, I had an ale while Tony had another bloody mary. I notice the bloody mary was a popular drink in Park City. Hmmm, I guess I gotta try one next time. Then afterwards, we headed over to Flanagans another pub and had lunch. All that walking and drinking made me hungry, I had a pastrami sandwhich with sweet potato fries.It was delish!!!!
Finally, after lunch we looked a little more places and thought it was time to go I think all the walking, drinking, and having lunch made us tired. So we headed back on the bus back to the car.
 I thank my friend Tony, for taking me out. It made my day, its been a long time since I enjoy my free time. Just looking and getting out to Park City was awesome. Now I can enjoy my free time and really enjoy it. I can't wait till I go out again and enjoy the moment with friends and family. I like this and I want more of this fun, freedom, and just relax.

 My last Sunday was a fun day no doubt about it, I can't wait for another fun day. I hope your Sunday was a great day no matter what it was, enjoy!!!

Its happy to be back again

Yes it is, its good to be back. I tried to stick with this blog time and time again. Every time I try getting into a routine something always comes up. My excuse is work, having two jobs kept me away since last November. I never have time to myself or people around me or have time to spend with my family.
 Just recently, I made my tenth year at my job back in April. I couldn't believe I would be working this long at one job, my idea was to stay for a couple of years and move on but instead I ended staying for another eight years. How did this happen? I guess I became comfortable and stayed with it, but one of the other reason was my co-workers. There were like family, there were part of me, even though we had our drama, laughs, bad days and our good day. They were my second family that's who I saw the most. I'm happy to work with some cool awesome people. I also made some awesome friendships with them through this job.
 For quite sometime, I was thinking of stepping down or even quitting because it was getting too much for me, a lot of things, drama just stuff that makes you think twice of your job. I was lucky to stay with this job. One of the benefits, the company allowed me to take a year off from my job. So I did, just recently I decided to a LOA (leave of absence) up to a year. I needed it, I deserved it. That's where I am, on a break. I've been on it two weeks in, for the first week it felt weird because it felt like just another day off but having the nights off and weekend was splendid!! I practically worked every weeknight and every weekend. Wow! its like a freedom! seriously! I don't know where to begin, there so so many things to work on. I've neglected so many things its like starting all over again.
 I have so many things on my mind that I want to do or accomplish. I have a feeling it will go fast and  it would feel like I didn't do anything. I have some thought of what I want to do, just that mind set of doing it and getting it done. Sad part, financially I can do some stuff but not like before, I like to buy things but now I have to watch what I spend. I know this was coming, I thought about this to. It was either living life or hating it. So the money situation, will be a little tough. I have to be smart with my money.  
 People ask me "how is it not working so much?" well its great! I'm actually happy and less stress. I feel like the weight just lifted of my back. I still feel like I need to clean something or need to do something. I have my phone with me waiting for that text telling me I have to pick up something up or come in early because someone is sick. I need to keep my phone away, need to get into that habit. Well see what happens this coming year, I don't know what to expect. I'm playin it by ear, I don't want to commit to anything right now. I still have my other job because you know bills needs to get paid. I really don't know what I would be doing. I know for sure I need to get organize at home, do a cleaning spree, getting rid of stuff. Donate some stuff to  the rehab where my mother is currently residing. Visiting my mom more, work on my scrapbooking, and other art stuff.  Just enjoy my free time actually go places, just be lazy. I do have some ideas I wanna do but I want to keep it to myself until it actually happens. When it does happens I will let you know.
  Now!! I WANNA show some things I have done already so far. I had a blast despite the heat! I have some pictures of what I done so far and now I will be writing again. Yay! Im just excited to have my free time again. I hope to show everyone my projects, my trips, my whatever I do that makes me happy!
  Now you know what happened to me the last eight months, Im gonna enjoy my time off and spend more time on my blog, projects, adventures, and spending with myself, friends and family.
 Well I hope everyone enjoy Fourth of July weekend I know I will even that means staying at home doing nothing so be it. Enjoy.

Before I went on my leave, I was invited to attend a close friends bachelorette party in Park City. Oh my gosh! I had the greatest time ever.
