Being Me…

and discovering that that is quite the roller coaster ride. Wanna come along?

Wow…it is a wonder there aren’t cobwebs here…

It wasn’t intentional.  My goal is to post at least three times a week (well – ok at least ONCE a week!) but I haven’t managed it.

Of course my computer crashed.  I need my husband’s help in getting it up and running and that hasn’t been forth coming.  Sigh.  That’s going to drive me to do it myself, which is good for me no doubt, but I have so many other things that need doing.  Sigh.

Well… to catch up:  we went as a family to see Santa and have a pancake breakfast at my three-year-old’s school. That was a first for all of us and it was tremendous fun.  My one-year-old sat on Santa’s lap and tried to eat the jingle bell on his belt.  That was adorable.  My oldest, the three year old, wouldn’t sit on Santa’s lap but he would sit near him…if I did.  Sigh.  Still, we got a cute family picture out of it.

Late last week, the company I have been doing temp work for made an offer.  And I accepted.  It isn’t effective until January, but that is fine by me.  It is just WONDERFUl knowing (a) someone wants me and (b) I’m going to stop being “temporary” – these days that word just makes me nervous.

That’s about it.  I am sure I’ll think of something I should have added when I no longer have computer access – that seems to be the way it works.  Sigh.

Whew! What a relief!

My husband had a three-hour interview today at the company I work for – and they offered him the job!  Yay!

I cannot even BEGIN to describe the relief.  Two years…it has been two years since he lost his job.

There is some celebrating going on here, let me tell you!

First week draws to a close

And I survived.  It wasn’t as bad as I was afraid it would be.  I did fine.  Sure, there were a few mistakes, but they were minor and easily fixable.  I think it is workable.  We’ll see how the rest of the job goes – how I feel about the work that will be the actual core of my job.  If that isn’t what I want, then I’ll have to keep looking.  Really the worst part of all of this has been leaving the kids – I’ve been home with them all of their lives and I think my oldest (a three year old) is having some trouble adjusting.  I hope that gets better; I’m sure it will in time.  Sigh.

Tomorrow we’re going to a cookout with both families at my brother-in-law’s house.  We’re having the standard hot dogs, hamburgers, chips, etc.  They also have a pool, so I’m sure there will be swimming at some point.  All in all, a good time will be had by all!  I expect to fall into bed tomorrow night, content and tired.

The rest of the weekend is unplanned at this point, but I do have to catch up on some things that I used to do during the week.  There’s enough of that to keep me busy, I’m sure, but I am hoping to fit more fun stuff in as well.  Here’s hoping to a great family weekend.
