Another Friday

Today, was just like any Friday.  I had eaten dinner, and was sitting at Jo’s Sunshine Lounge listening to Karaoke.  I even found myself participating in karaoke on this night.  It was 9:30 at night and I was sitting there listening to someone sing, and Neal, Frank, and their significant Read more…

Motel Employee stabbed by ballpoint pen

So, last night, I had just finished my the first part of my split shift for the day. As an assistant manager at the Rodeway Inn, I never thought I would have to deal with the following situation.

Mr. Stanton had just arrived with his students from Ririe Junior High School. They brought us about 20 or so rooms while they come on a field trip to Boise. The students were away from the Bus, as the teachers were unloading some things from the Bus. A customer had been at the Hotel for about a week. She thought it was a good idea to go out on her balcony and begin to cuss and yell and offend Mr. Stanton and the other teachers. And to top it off, she was being drunk and disorderly.

This was reported to my front desk clerk, Misty, who then reported it to me. I then had to ask Miss Nanette Gazlay to leave, because my job is to protect my customers. I gave her a few minutes to grab her things, she came down to the desk and gave my desk clerk a hard time. At 6:58 pm, I had no choice but to call Boise Police Dispatch. As I was talking to the dispatcher on the phone, Nanette ran up behind me and “stabbed” me in the back with a pen. I yelled “I have just been stabbed”.



Well, today is one of those days that I had always planned for.  I always thought that this day wouldn’t come either.  The day that I am speaking of is my graduation from college with a Bachelor’s Degree in Accounting.  I am an online student at the University of Phoenix, but I am participating in graduation ceremonies with the Boise, Idaho campus.  I am on my way to the Grove Hotel, which is where my graduation is going to take place here is just a couple of hours.  However, I am not done with school quite yet.  I am planning on starting my Masters of Science in Accounting in July.  That program will take about a year to complete. 

Food Storage

Some time ago, we were at Costco and we saw “The Shelf Reliance Food Storage Rotation” systems.  I think the first time that we had seen them was at a Wal-Mart in Logan, Utah.  I loved them then, and everytime I saw one, I fell more and more in love with the thing.

“Food storage management has never been easier thanks to Shelf Reliance Food Rotation Systems.™ Available in four heights, three widths, and two depths, our food storage shelves were designed to easily store and rotate a large amount of cans. Every system features patented front-loading technology and fits easily into most storage spaces” (
