Other then that I want to go to the big HSA reunion, but I am loosing faith that there will be one.. Other then that I just work at work and then come home and work. Lol It seems like every weekend there is something going on.
Yeah I can relate to that. Lol I use to have to get up at 2:30 am or so five days a week. But the time schedule changed on the one oute that I do Monday through Wednesday to 4:00 am. So now I only have to get up at 2:30 Thursday, and Friday.
Yeah I know what yop mean My schedule is so busy I can't handle it even now. And its just getting busier as the summer go's on.
And Oh cool! I'm going to send each one your sibs a Friend request . Oh! and Yes I do have some siblings on here too. Phil is on here a lot.

Yeah I hope to make it to the reunion this year too. I'm pretty sure I'll go. I really liked it last year. I made a lot of good friends and stuff. I work on diffrent routes so some times I have the afternoon shift, and sometimes I have the morning. It just depends on the day I suppose . I'll have been working for my dad for three years this June. And I'll have been driving the trucks three Years in October. Before I did the truck routes I drove a rual box route in a car. . and YES!!! I love it! Its easy - Cool - , and sweet . When everything is going good. lol . Thats really neat that you have so many sibs. Are any of them on here? Where are you in the line up?
Awe... To bad you didn't get the job.. I never got to go on vacations or anything when i was a kid due to us being dirt poor. Lol BUT! Now I have a little money and can go places. So I have been to Tx-MO and NC. I went to NC for the big hsa reunion last year. It was awesome fun . I don't really know if i have a favorite tho..
For work I am a mail truck driver. I drive a 26 foot long box truck. Our routes are contracted routes. So I don't acually work for the USPS. I work for my dad who owns the contracts.
Lol I had a chance to go see the hunger games to. And I passed . My cusin told me it was lame so I did't waste my money. And now I see he wasn't kiding. Lol Sorry it was bad.. I Don't really watch a whole lot of movies so awwwweee.... I Don't think I have a favorite one of those either.. . Whats yours????

No girlfriend . I go see a movie once in a while. But thats about it. How about you???????? What job did you get? Sounds good
