More on that.

Now that A's sleeping I can tell you how great this week was. So, on Monday I had an interview at this coffee/cookie shop in the mall. I got there and we started talking and I got the job! So that's been good, being a stay at home mommy is amazing in it's own way but I really like having my own money. Then, on thursday but possibly Friday G got a call for an interview and he got that job. Basically, it's the same job except he won't be supervisor but he'll get more money? Which basically just means his current employer sucks and does not treat their employees well. On Friday A got her second vaccines. at first we thought she would do a lot better because after the first one she barely whimpered but her being older actually meant she has figured out the yelling crying thing and perfected it. Our poor baby was miserable. Also that cough turned out to be worse than we thought, bronchialitis, I believe? So now she has this tiny little mask attached to a nebulizer to do every few hours. The breathing treatments only last ten minutes but who's patient enough for that? The correct answer would be someone not related to me. She's not a happy camper. Did I mention that I watched Hannah Montana and it was absolutely wonderful? Seriously one of the best movies i've seen all year. That's saying something since we're there almost every weekend. I even converted Melanie and trust me she was nor on our side (: On that note, please do not waste your money on Dragonball. So cheesy and they could had so much they could have done with it but they did not. G's birthday is on Thursday. I fail miserably at this good girlfriend thing, what do you get a 22 year old? Besides a beautiful baby, of course. I'm making brownies for the Man and since I like chocolate as much as I like his xbox right now (another day) how am I supposed to know when they're done?! Oh and Easter was good. G's Aunt came and told us she is pregnant!!! And due September 4th. Babies cone in threes in their family so we will see who the third is. I got an awesome HM pen and A got a bunch of cute things; her baskets were bigger than her! I may or may not have burned the brownies. Grand.
Sad day for the G-man. However, I'm eating grapes and they are delicious.
Sending you all lots of love this Sunday. <3


Happy Easter everyone!
Today was good and I'm pretty sure we've all gained at least five pounds.
AND we got to watch the Hannah Montana movie, finally.
I've never been so obsessed with anything, ever.
But it's a good thing, i think.
A finally fits into her dresses and she has a little fairy wand.
It's pretty much the cutest thing ever.
Someday when I stop sucking at timing the perfect picture, I will show you.
I think Alicia took some though so it will be okay.

this weeks thankful list.

I don't do this enough, hah. I will get better, I hope.
And cross your fingers, pray, whatever you're into but do it for me, a lady needs a sitter for her two kids and she put the posting up on monday but I didn't see it until Saturday so I hope she just didn't call back because it's a weekend and not because the positions filled.

  1. Whoever started Craigslist, thank you.
  2. I'm glad my Uncle Greg is not in pain anymore. This had been hard on all of us but I'm really trying to see it that way.
  3. I am thankful for good, true friends, they're hard to find and I love the few I have.
  4. I'm thankful that Jenn and Natalie might have a chance to move up here. I think it'll be good for all of us.
  5. I am so glad that A is starting to life her head up more, she should be crawling soon.
  6. I'm thankful for A and her cute little tutu. It was super easy to make, I'm thankful for that too (:
  7. I'm thankful for humidifiers and that A's cough is finally going away.
  8. I'm thankful that people put recipes all over the internet because I only have one cookbook G likes her a lot.
  9. I'm thankful for Hastings being on this side of down. It used to be all the way across town but I guess after it snowed all week the road collapsed so they have to move here temporarily. Now it's down the street and our movies are never late, haha.
  10. I'm thankful that Chris and Andrea got to spend time with A this weekend.
  11. I'm thankful for Pow Wow music.
  12. I'm so very grateful that we have to food every night, that baby is growing every single day.
  13. I am thankful for every blessing we have, I just don't show it sometimes. I need to work on that.
  14. I'm thankful for G's jobs. Even if Buckle doesn't pay that much, it makes him happy and that is worth it.
  15. I'm thankful for A's smile and it's power to make even the grumpiest person smile. Try it, you'll see.
  16. I'm thankful that we actually got to sleep last night, so let's thank A for that one.
  17. I'm thankful that places are actually putting up now hiring signs. This should be good, I hope.
  18. I'm thankful for random people from high school add me on Myspace. This might sound like sarcasm, it's not.
  19. I'm thankful for sunscreen built right into clothes, how great is that?
  20. I'm thankful for washing machines because really, I would not be able to keep up with this kid.
  21. But I am thankful that she has enough clothes to change as many times as she does.
  22. I am thankful for all the mommy-blogs out there. I'm actually not going crazy, or I'm just not doing it alone. Whichever works, they make me feel better.
  23. I'm thankful for the sun and free Vitamin D.
  24. I'm thankful for smiling strangers.
  25. I'm thankful for older women who speak to you as another mother, not as some young girl who doesn't know what she's doing.
  26. I'm thankful that there is a new engine for Shredder even if it's currently just sitting in the garage.
  27. I'm thankful that gas prices are low, because Shredder is awfully thirsty. All the time.
  28. I'm thankful for digital clocks, it takes me too long to tell time on the regular ones.
  29. I'm thankful for good movies and a chance to get out of the house.
  30. But I'm also thankful that I get to spend time with baby in the house, even if she's being extremely fussy lately.

Apparently this is is all I'm allowed today because A's patience has run out.
Anyway, have a good day everyone.
