Well ladies & Gents, I believe I've secured myself a job..Not sure of the start date, but it will either be MONDAY, or the following Monday after the 4th of July. I'm going to work for Chesapeake as a Contractor, which means Its not a permanant position, but a long-term contract, and its an exceptional opportunity. I'm going to work in (Are you ready for this?) the I.T. Department! Yes, I'm going to be helping people with computers.. The Irony in all this is that when I started college my Major was Computer Science, but I fell into broadcasting and just left that behind, and moved onto English..So Now I feel like I've come full circle.
So I'm excited. I had two really great interviews last week, and I've been offered two other positions, but I really feel like working for Chesapeake I will have a lot of opportunities to learn something completely knew (although not foreign to me) and look forward to learning, and meeting new people. I've been in the radio business for so long, and while its been some of the most amazing times of my life, I'm anxious to work in a place where I think my work ethic, creativity, and loyalty will be rewarded. I'm very excited about it!
Yesterday was MJ's & I's 6 month anniversary. We went to PF Changs where they have an amazing 'dinner for 2' option with a soup, appetizer, entree, and dessert.. MM MM! I had egg drop soup, Lettuce Wraps, Almond & Cashew chicken, and Carrot Cake. It was all soo good for $20! YUM! MJ had Sweet & Sour soup, Lettuce Wraps, Kung Pao chicken, and Chocolate cake..Everything was soooo good, and we had an awesome time. He's such a great guy!
Let me just say to you.. I LOVE MY IPAD. Paddy is amazing. She does so many cool things, and I've enjoyed her so much this past week! MJ Loved her so much that he went and got himself one too! He named him St. Pat, and now Patty & St. Pat are in love too..lol..Ridiculous I know!! I took Miss Payslee to the Norman Hospital yesterday for a visit..She helped patients with their Physical therapy, and had a good time..she's such a good girl!
This weekend is going to be nice..I'm having a farm party. All my friends are coming out to the farm in Canute for some farm time fun. We will probably play volleball, have some good food, drinks, and conversations.. Its going to be good.. I knew if I would just stay positive enough, be true to myself, and hang in there things would turn around..and now they are..I do want to say again, that I truly appreciate every person who has reached out to me..whether it be to pass along a job suggestion, tell me they miss me on the air, give me words of encouragment, or just tell me Hi, I really do appreciate it.. you all are really good people.. thank you!!

Anyway, he started the show with a brand new song called "Are you with Me" and its awesome. He did a few new songs and he has a new CD coming out in September..So excited for that..He also did some awesome covers of Bob Seger tunes, and even an awesome cover of "Help me Make it through the Night"! So good.. The whole show was excellent!
After the show my friends and I all went and hung out on the bus for awhile. His band and tour manager are very cool so it was funtimes to just hang out and talk shop. James Otto has been one of a few artists who has been keeping in touch with me, even after I lost my job at KKNG. We talk through Twitter, and he's just an awesome guy on the inside and out..and yes, he's very delicious..I didn't get home till after 2am! At least I didn't have to get up early right!
We all had a fabulous time and it was so good to see JO again..Plus Whitney has now jumped on board as an Ottomaniac!!!! Always fun to be with Good friends, listening to good music!

We had floor seats, so if you want to see more of the pictures click: HERE and you can see the whole show.
We went ahead and drove all the way to Canute from Tulsa because MJ was already out there hanging out with Steve..but it was nice because we had the whole weekend to do fun, farm stuff.. MJ got to drive the 4x4 tractor for the first time with the Ripper on the back, and he was stoked..He had never driven a tractor..EVER..(he's a city boy)..and he thought it was incredible..Plus this is a GIANT tractor with tons of power, so he was impressed. .Mom also had him Mow with our bionic mower..It goes very fast with a zero turn radius, so he loved mowing too! We may make a farmer out of him yet! He even has a Straw Cowboy hat now! He's so cute in it..lol.. The dogs of course had a great time too..Sawyer thinks he is a border collie and runs as fast as he can to keep up.. Rally does too, but Miss Pays is smart enough to stay with Mama and just be a girl.. Sawyer dipped himself in mud, and mom squirted him with the water hose, which he thought was great fun..Then I let him take a dip in the pool with Bear, her Aussie, that likes to swim..So they all had a great time..
UNTIL..I noticed Rally limping after he had come in from running as fast as he could with the other dogs..It didn't get better so I took him to the vet yesterday and sure enough, he tore his ACL.The Vets Suggestion was to watch it for a couple of weeks..Sometimes the dog just accepts it, and it doesn't really bother them, they just walk with a slight limp..That would be the best case scenario, and what we are hoping for. He gave me some pain meds because he said in the beginning of the injury its painful, then afterward its just kind of a nusciance, but not painful to him.. The vet has said that its not something that is a dire situation..meaning its not going to cause his health to deteriorate, or his leg to fall off, or anything awful, but I still don't want him to be in pain. It won't get any 'worse' than it already is..He didn't just slightly tear it, or injure it..he Tore it into..so it can't get any worse than it is now, and I guess that is good.
The last scenario is surgery. I'm not sure that surgery would be a good option for Rally..for one he is 12 years old, and even though he is in excellent health (He just had a geriatric exam in January, and everything looked great) the surgery would make him be basically bed ridden for 4 weeks..He can't go on walks..run outside..play, etc.. and that would just BREAK HIS HEART.. Rally is a pretty active dog and his daily walks are his favorite things..Plus the surgery doesn't always work. Sometimes the dog still doesn't like using the leg and they have to put weights on it to make the dog use it..Sometimes the ACL ruptures again.. Sometimes the dog rejects the materials they put in the leg.. So I'm just hoping and praying that Rallis continues to improve. (He did better yesterday).. He was still running around on 3 legs when we left the farm! Crazy dog!
Still job hunting, but I have some amazing people helping me, so hopefully I will find something soon!
