You could have just asked...

This is for my family, because I am sure that most of my friends wouldn't really care to much. I am kind of curious what everyone is thinking though. I am sure that most of you know that something is going on with my dad... and I am sure that you have your theories about it. I am sorry that I haven't responded to Amy's question about my dad having an apartment. Yes, he has an apartment. He and Tracy have gotten divorced, and the boys are living with her. My dad (more like I) get to have the boys every other weekend. I wasn't exactly sure what I was allowed to say before, but I figured that there are probably a lot of weird theories about what was going on. I know that Tracy was really stressed about work... and my dad... well, he's Brett. So things weren't working out too well between them. No cheating was involved, or any other things you might have been thinking. If you want to know more, you can always ask. Just give me a call, if you don't have my number you can email me or get it from Brooke.

On another note. I am sure that many of you who have attended BYU can relate to the pain I will be experiencing tonight. I am taking my American Heritage final tomorrow. I have been quite the slacker and I have a 4 page paper due tomorrow as well. I will be pulling an all nighter. I remember when pulling an all nighter was cool, but that was back in the day when I didn't have to go into work, and I was able to take a nap the next day. I am dreading this test and I am pretty worried about how well I will do on it, so if you will please remember me and my test in your prayers... I will need them. Okay, you don't really have to pray that I will do okay on my test, but at least wish me luck. Right now I am procrastinating my studying. I should be doing some sort of studying or research for my paper. But here I am blogging about my dad, and how bad I will do on my test.

ZRII... I never really told exactly what happened with work. It was all really sketchy and a lot of legal stuff was happening during my last post about work and so I was able to say much. But here is the story. There were 7 VPs in the company (Tracy being the VP of Marketing) and they decided that they didn't like the way that Bill (The CEO) was running things. So they decided that they would resign and give Bill the option of selling the company to them. Bill is a very stubborn person, and this was the company that he started and funded from his own pocket. He decided to accept their resignation, and keep the company and run it himself. Well, everyone walked out with the VPs (except for customer service) My department had to manage everything for a couple days without the rest of the company. They didn't tell us what was going on they told us that everyone else was at an off site meeting. So, we had callers calling in and asking us about commissions, compliance, sales, everything. We no longer had anyone in any of those departments so we ended up putting things off. Things are finally starting to get back to normal, and we are slowly hiring people to fill all of the departments. We are behind on a lot of commissions, and compliance problems, but things are starting to look up. Bill offered everyone who stayed a $1000 bonus if we stayed till the end of the month. These last two weeks have been easier, but the first two weeks were extremely hard to get through. It still isn't as fun as it used to be but we are getting through it. Jocelynn has stuck it out too... it is kind of fun working with her. I think this is the simplest way to explain what happened, and for the most part it is accurate, depending on whose story you are trying to tell. I think this is the most unbias way to tell it.


  1. thanks for the update, Amber. Good Luck on your test today.

  2. I care, Amber. You are a wonderful person to be helping your dad out so much with the boys. I hope you did well on your test! Call me later and let me know how it went! Love ya!

  3. I could have just asked?
    thanks for letting us know amber. you could have just told us, too. well, not you, so much, but you know what i mean.
    and yes, I'd like to know more so send me the special version. i'll be e-mailing brett, too.
    and is susan married? is jason still married? have you gotten married? do you have any kids? what else should i be asking? i don't know the right questions to ask. i guess brett needs a blog. good thing we have you to fill us in every once in a while. i feel so disconnected from your family sometimes, but the blogging thing for me has really helped. i really appreciate you letting us into your life.
    and- good luck on your final.
