Wild Animal Park

A little bit before we left to Hawaii Michael and I went to the Wild Animal Park! It was really fun and I've been dying to post pictures but was a little bit busy getting ready for Hawaii. So here are the pics!

This tiger was sleeping. Watch the video below. It may be a little long but totally worth it! Ok, the video is not working. Our internet is going whacky. So ignore the not working link below. It's another tiger pouncing on this sleeping tiger.


We were getting ready for our Safari. People come visit us so you can experience this awesomeness.

This is a giraffe and her new calf. (is it a calf?) They just moved into the zoo and are waiting to join their friends!

This guy can't be with his family until his little bro grows up a bit so his mom doesn't kill him. Isn't that sweet?

Also, we just got back from Hawaii so here's a sneak peek of our trip. Check out Facebook for the rest of the pics.

One of those days...

When I left Panera Bread in Concord (where I just was living...sort of) there were people there crying that I was leaving. Everyone knew that I was following my husband but hated it. People tried to convince me to stay, some even begged. It was hard to leave. I was part of a great team who needed me and loved me and I needed and loved them.

I'm now at a new cafe. I work with great, hard working people. They have welcomed me and listened to my problems; one even saw me break down today. I'm still struggling though. I really miss my old cafe, just to start. On top of that I feel like the black sheep. I don't feel like I'm needed and sometimes I feel like I'm not even wanted. I just came from a cafe where I was high on the totem pole and I had worked hard, very hard, to get there and now I'm down at the bottom again. The very bottom. I miss loving my job and having that "can't wait" feeling when thinking about going back to work. I miss being needed, truly needed. Today things fell apart and I was getting "graded" for my performance today. Not a good day to not have it together.

It's just been a bad day.
