This Isn't What I'm Supposed to Be Doing

I got some free music from Amazon yesterday. I got their email about the 50 CDs for $5 (each, heh), and so I checked it out (nothing in which I was interested) but there was a section about the free albums. Samplers, mostly. So I got a Celtic album, a Brazilian album, a "Romantic Moments Digital Sampler", and the Amazon Sampler. I'm listening to the Celtic album right now and it's awesome. And it was free, which is even awesomer.

Today, I adopted a new little brother. I really like being a sister, and being raised around a lot of boys, I really like to spend time with guys. So, I have three - now four - boys I've adopted as my little brothers. (For the record, only 1 of them is actually physically 'little' compared to me.) (He says he's taller, but he just has big hair.) They're just the boys I love on and care about. I make sure they don't get into too much trouble - and now that they're all in college, boy do I have my job cut out for me. It helps that they all go to my school, and that they're all as insane as I am.

We got new furniture in one of the buildings that we clean, and I'm very happy and excited about it. The old furniture was yucky teal, and had black grease all over the armrests. The new furniture doesn't have armrests, so that'll be easier to clean. :)

My sister and I had a table at the Farmers' Market this summer, and yesterday was our last day. It was drizzling the whole time, but we still made a decent profit, so that was happy.

Freshman orientation starts on Monday at our school, so today, Housekeeping was in charge of setting up 1,000 chairs (with tables) in the gym for their dinner. Do you have any idea how much fun that is? If you say, "Tons of fun, I'm sure. I bet you all had a rockin' blast!," you're wrong. I could have been cleaning underneath a toilet. Hahahaha, no really, I could have. I'm not sure which I'd prefer actually. The chairs and tables smell a little better, but they sure take a lot longer. Anyway, the point is: Housekeeping keeps our campus running. People have no idea. We do.

We also started prepping classrooms, to make sure each one can fit enough people. We had a list of how many people are supposed to be able to fit in each classroom (based on class rosters) and then we went for it. Some people are really ... not thinking. For example, they decided to schedule a class of 33 people in a room that holds about 24. So we squished them in. And then last year, some people upstairs in a building decided to steal half our tables and chairs, so we don't have enough downstairs, but what can we do about it? Well, we're housekeeping and have the keys, so we stole a lot of them back, but we still need a bunch more. Yay! No.

I just rambled for two paragraphs about work. How devastating.

My boyfriend's sister is having her grad party tonight.

Ooh, on Sunday, we're having an outdoor service at our church. Anyone who reads this should totally come, because it'll be fun. It's at 10:00.

My dad just mowed past my window. It smells like freshly cut grass now! I love that smell. And the smell of clean laundry, and citrus, and flannel, and clean boys. :)

Love and sticky notes,
