There's a lot going on

It's been a while since I've posted so I'll catch you up on everything going on in the wonderful Webb World....
Last week was my first week with Safety Kleen.....It was great. Most of the week was getting set up, filling out paper work, and doing online training until I couldn't open my eyes. I did 80 online modules, each having a brief quiz at the end which I had to make an 80 on to move to the next. Luckily I'm pratically done with that portion on the training.
I got out of the office a few times....Wednesday I went out to collect samples of oil (what we do when we're signing up an account...just to make sure there's nothing really harmful mixed in.) Friday I was on route all day which was great....Got me out of the office and I got to see what exactly our drivers do on a daily basis.
Backing up to manager was in town to finalize me actually being an official employee and going over's what my next 4 months look like...get's incredible:

1) Baltimore, MD
2) San Antonio, TX
3) Santa Ana, CA
4) Irving, TX
5) Back to Santa Ana
6) Plano, TX

Basically - i'll cover a lot of ground. I'm really excited because I've never been to Baltimore....or Santa Anna so that'll be nice. Plus it's all expenses paid...nice hotel...good food....meeting new people. It's going to be nice.

Memorial Day Weekend.....awesome. I love time off but this weekend was great b/c we went to good ol' Boerne TX to hang out with my folks...We had a great time....last time we were there was Christmas so it was well overdue...I know I know....horrible son I am!! haha
Friday we watched the spurs stink up the court (my dad and I are very animated when it comes to the spurs.) Saturday was a day of eating. My mom made my favorite Aunt Martha's Pancakes for's basically the best pancake ever....has a fruit sauce that is awesome.
Got some good mexican food from "the dive" in Boerne. We all got snow cones and hung out at the river that runs through B-town....I haven't been there in years. Ducks everywhere....They do the weirdest things - I guess when they're looking for some food in the sand they stick their butt up out of the water and start kicking their was amusing to say the least.
Then we capped off the night with Chicken Fried Steak for dinner and watched National Treasure 2.
Sunday was Senior day at church so we went to breakfast to eat and say hi to everyone we haven't seen in a long...LONG time. I feel old but I guess it happens.
Boerne C of C definitely aren't hurting for babies. They're EVERYWHERE!!! My mom had a new one every time time I looked up. Next thing I know...Julie has one. Cutest little thing! Julie helped my mom out in the nursery for church and had a blast.....I'm never going back to that church again though....haha - just kidding.

Went to the hamburger place call Cheesy Jane's in Boerne after church - I love that place. great burgers and according to my bride amazing Shakes.

We got back home Sunday around 5....relaxed for a bit while the dogs completely crashed. Boomer didn't move for at least 4 hours and champed actually stayed still long enough to take a long nap.

How fun was my day off you ask? It was great - mowed the yard and picked weeds all morning - I'm giving up on picking weeds though. I worked on it for about 2 hours and barely made a dent....we're hiring someone - I'm too old for that crap!

Julie made the best chicken salad I've ever had with homemade was awesome!!!
Then turned around and made homemade was awesome too.
I got lucky with her....if it was up to me we'd be eating tv dinners every night!!!

Great weekend and great week - now it's back to work I go!

I'm like a kid the night of Christmas Eve

I can't sleep - i'm too excited. tomorrow I start my NEW job. I can't wait. I know it's going to be a lot of paper work and boring online training but I'm still pumped. They're ordering my laptop and my cell phone which is cool as crap!

So - wish me luck - it's going to be a great day!!!

Julie and I had a VERY relaxing weekend. We really didn't do a lot at all - went shopping today for some new work clothes.......I get to wear jeans and polos.....i have 1 pair of good jeans that are professional enough to wear to had to get another pair and some polos.

Ate dinner with Jeff/Hayley and Katie/Donnie tonight at Red Robin.....our waitress was something else. Always said the wrong thing at the wrong by the way (after we get our food) we have no pineapples for your burger, or I ran out of water for the 3rd straight time - i must have put too much ice in here.....or Why didn't you tell me you didn't want more water so I didn't walk all the way over there to get more.....ya know - typical stuff like that. It say the least....interesting.

Saturday we went to Katie and Donnie's for a cookout and had fun.....but really - that's about the extent of our weekend - it was awesome!!!

Next weekend we're going to good ole San Antonio to visit my parents. It's hard to believe but we haven't been there since Christmas. We can't wait.

Well - i'm going to try to get some sleep since it's after midnight!!! hasta luego yos

that's what I'm talking about!!

It was an exciting day at the Webb house today. I accepted a job as a sales rep with Safety Kleen!!! My official title is Market Sales Specialist - sounds so prestigious ey?!?! It's a great opportunity to really make some money as well as move up in the company. My territory is going to be huge! Covers...Abilene down to Sonora/Junction, out west to Snyder, up north to Knox City, and out east to Brownwood. That's a lot of miles but at least I'll be in charge of Abilene so I will be in town some. And, when I am traveling anywhere for work i'll be in a bright yellow Safety Kleen van (that's right - pimpin') So, if you see me...either get out of the way or stop me and buy some stuff - haha.

My last day with Cintas is Friday and I start the new gig on Monday - really...really fast how everything happened. It has been a good run with Cintas and I have enjoyed getting to know my co-workers at the plant...But, I guess it's time to move on and get this party started.

Julie and I both would appreciate your prayers during this crazy time. I'm so excited!!!!

This weekend went by way too fast

This weekend we were in Arlington for Julie to get her wisdom teeth pulled Friday. Though it was nice to have Friday off, it sure wasn't much fun....especially for Julie.

We got in Thursday night and had a great meal at On The Border (you'll be hearing a lot about this place)
It was great to actually get some good food besides the typical Chilis - which I'm over for the moment.
Friday morning Julie and her mom did a bit of shopping before Julie's 11 am consultation then following surgery. Stupid me did not eat anything before i met up with them at the drs office and was starving. She didn't get to go back for the consult until around 11:50. After the consult was done we were back in the waiting room for her surgery. FINALLY they took her back and Barbara and I immediately stepped outside to grab a power bar and a swig of water. By this time it was probably around 1:30 or so. She got out of surgery and everything went fine. I was really looking forward to her on drugs....I thought she'd be funny and it'd give us something to laugh about later.....I was disappointed. She didn't say anything at all...could have been all the gause in her mouth - she did however give me a really gay thumbs up when I asked her how she was doing. That was funny - haha. I'm just glad she was ok. It was the first time she had ever been knocked completely out but she handled it well.

The rest of that day was crazy. I went to walmart to get her meds filled but the pharmacy wasn't open (brand new walmart). Went to Albertson's, back to the house to change into shorts (it was HOT), back to albertson's to pick up the meds, back to the house, to Bath and Body works to get her a get better present, to On the Border to get some Tortilla soup, queso, etc, to Jack in the Box (HALLELUJAH - I've been craving JITB for the longest time since we don't have them here YET), then back to the house.
Later on it was back to OTB to go get some more soup - apparently that was a hit with julie. She loved it. That's all she wrote for Friday....I was pooped and Julie was hurting but still kicking.

Saturday, Mike, Jon, and I went to have some fun. We went over to the Ferrai/Maserati dealership in Plano - holy wow it was awesome. So many fun cars there. My next car is only worth about 135K - pocket change ey?! We then trucked over to the lamborghini dealership just to see what was going on over there....>They had SO many frapping cool cars. Jon and I picked out our favorites and Mike got to talking to the sales guy. They really are some sweet rides.
They had a 01 Diablo that I wanted to drive off the lot.....Apparently they don't do many test drives on those cars - i was bummed - haha. But the Diablo and I go way back...It was kind of the cool car in my childhood. I had a toy Diable growing up that was red and purdy....Luckily the sales guy showed us all the ins and outs of their sounded awesome when he cranked it up - honestly made me jump.

We ventured back to the house to check on my bride and were basically in for the night. Had pizza and watched TV.

I love Mother's day. It really is a great day to reflect on how lucky we are as guys to have our mother's in our lives. Especially for me - I have the world's greatest mom who unconditionally loves me and shows nothing but support for me and my wife. Today when Julie got done talking to my mom told me how glad she was that I married Julie and how much she loves her as her own....Just the little things that make you feel great about yourself. but, you know the decisions you make are directly influenced by your parents and I am blessed.

Not only do I have an amazing mother but also to have an amazing mother-in-law. Barbara truly loves me and treats me as her own. It's awesome to visit my in-laws and to feel like I'm apart of the family.'s to you Mom and Barbara - I hope you both had a fantastic day...You both Deserve it! I love you both so much and cannot thank God enough for each of you blessing our families like you do!

last week was nuts

Last week was so busy with work. It was all a blur.
I was on the road a lot and actually had some great appointments. Hopefully they'll pan out soon so we can make some money money money....moooooooooooooooney.

Friday we went to the Ranch for a night and as usual...had a blast. Went hunting early Saturday morning....I didn't even plan on hunting b/c I was so tired. But, figured what the heck - I got excited. Tried to kill this hog that's been hanging around the feeder quite a bit for the last few weeks. But....he never showed up - stupid hog. Guess he didn't feel like getting shot that today.

We ate a lot again - not really a shocker there. Julie made bacon/cheddar scones which are absolutely amazing! The only time she ever makes them though is when we go to the ranch or if she makes them for her work. Oh but it's worth the wait.

Saturday...Jon, Mike and I went into Olney b/c they were having an 80's and older car show which was cool. There was a huge 80's (i think) chevy truck with some monster 44 inch tires on them. I could almost stand under the fender wells - thing was sweet. bet it got -3 miles to the gallon though. It was one of those if you thought about starting er up - you'd need to get gas.

Today was very relaxing - did the typical lounging around and getting groceries!

All in all - a great weekend. I love my wife - she's awesome!!
