It's been a while

Has it really been 4 months since I posted something on here?!?!?! Well I guess so, a lot has happened and nothing has happened. I am not going to relive the last 4 months with you, instead I choose to bitch about the weather. Yes I said weather. I live in freaking Tennessee, where there is no actual winter. We have spring, and fall which is about the same temperature, and then there is summer were you can fry eggs on your forehead if you stay outside too long, and then there is the rainy season a.k.a "winter"! Well I say BULLSHIT!! I want winter to be winter, you know what I mean, like when in gets cold, you have snow. Not some cold ass rainy weather!!! Blame it on "global warming" or some shit like that but when I was a kid, I remember it snowing way more than it does now. I want my kids to play in the snow, have snowball fights, build snowmen, snow forts and all the cool stuff that I used to do as a kids. But NO they get nasty, gross, cold freaking rain!! I think I need to have a winter home somewhere that actually GETS snow!!! So long Tennessee, somewhere north here I come!!

Keys to the candy shop!

About two weeks ago I found out that I ACTUALLY got a job!! "You will be starting on August 17th". So I had two weeks of worrying and wondering what life at work was going to be like and worrying and wondering about leaving the house and the kids. Yeah I made myself sick, well didn't actually get sick from the nerves until Friday, I could barely eat and had a monster headache.

I went to bed early last night, well early for me which was about 1am. Got up at 6am, did my normal morning stuff, get the kids ready for school and to the bus stop on time. Then it was time for me to get myself ready, I was shaking with nerves!

Made it to work early :) (brownie points?) First things first, I got taken around to meet all of my fellow employees. All very nice by the way. Then it was time to get to it, my trainer gave me a three page (yeah it could be worse, but I haven't worked in 8 yrs!!!) list of duty that I would have to do daily. Overwhelming? YES!! But now it was time to dive into that list of things to do!! And once I got to doing everything it came to me a lot easier than I was making it out to be.

All was going well, and then it was time for lunch. Everyone takes lunch at the same time and we all sit down to eat together, kinda like a little family. Even the conversation is like being at home. So what did we talk about POOP!!! Yep that is right we talked about poop for about 15 minutes, ok I say we but I just listened and tried not to spit my food across the table!!!

After lunch I got to take the COMPANY car to go and run some errands. WTF I get to drive a company car!! Ok so I have to share, but I have a set of keys and one other person has a set!!

Errands done, keys back in my desk, and back to the list. One of the things on my list is I have to scan file, not a big deal. However, when the copy/fax/scanner is taller than you, there is a problem. My feet were killing me so I decided to take my shoes off for a second while I was just standing there. While the shoes were off, the scanner finished and had to put in more papers to scan. While on tippy toes to put the paper up there.....my boob hit the start button!!! It was then I realized that I either need to keep my shoes on (that are killing me) or I need a step stool!! NO I DID NOT MAKE COPIES OF MY BOOBS!! However that would be really funny, but not the first day of work!

The rest of the day was rather quiet. I closed up the office and came home. So glad to be home, tired, feet hurt, but ready to get in there tomorrow and kick butt!! I think I am going to love my job!!

Yes Virgina there is a Santa Clause!

Yes Virgina there is a Santa Clause!

In the last month there have been a roller coaster of emotions that have flowed through my body. They have made me distant and somewhat of a bitch sometimes (sorry honey, I love you). Well today (actually yesterday) things began to change.

I have been without a washing machine for almost a month, we scrapped together enough to do some laundry about a week ago, but had to bring them home to dry. But yesterday my parents found a "good" deal on a BRAND NEW washer for us!! So last night and today I have been doing laundry. When the phone rang.....

Last week I had an interview for a job, which I thought was going to get as soon as I left the interview. The interviewer told me they would let me know at the end of the week or beginning of this week. I didn't hear anything so I called on Monday to check on the job, with no answer and no call back. So my thought was "crap, I really wanted this job" and "oh well time to look some more".

Well this afternoon I played phone tag with my interviewer til we finally got on the same page. I was offered the job and start on the 17th of this month!

I am so over the top we glee tonight, I hope I can sleep! LOL I guess that is why I am writing this just to get it all out and hopefully chill out for the rest of the night!! :D

Buses, Roses, and Chocolates....Oh My!!!

Summer is coming to a close. This Friday is the first day of school for kids, however my husband asked me a interesting question tonight. "When are you going to start training for the Olympics?" Me: "The what?" Hubby: "You are going to have to start getting up earlier, when are you going to bed earlier?" Me: Oh Crap!!

(This year is going to be so much different, my oldest has to be at the bus stop at 6:45am!! WTF I will have to get up at 5:45am to get the child up and moving and fed and all that. Then I will come home and get daughter ready and to the bus stop!)

So that conversation was over, and I was thinking about what time I was going to have to get up. My hubby starts laughing, and shows me a comment that a friend of his posted on Facebook. She asked "Is it wrong to give the bus drives a dozen roses the first day of school?" Which got me to thinking that I don't care what time I have to get up, I'm going to be home with hubby with only one kid home!!!


Don't get me wrong, I love my kids, however things are so much easier with one kiddo than three. Easier to clean the house. Just one word easier!!

So I am seriously considering getting both my kids bus drivers a dozen roses!! Maybe not at the same time or at the beginning of the year but bus drivers and teacher, I love thee and thank you for all you do!!

Lay Off or vacation

As of July 10th my hubby is no longer employed. The company he worked for has been doing layoffs every couple months for the past year. We were hoping that them moving him to another office would spare him from getting the boot, but no. At least he rode it out for almost a year.

So he has been home everyday for almost a month, not complaining I really like him being home. I just don't want to get too used to the idea of him being home, because I know as smart and talented as he is that he WILL find a job, and then he will be gone during the day again!

I just worry about him, I mean is losing a job like a death? He has been all distant and grumpy. I try to make him laugh, I've gotten grumpy with him, nothing seems to help!! I LOVE having him home, I just wish he would get back to his old self again before he finds a job.

Or before I find one! I had a job interview on Tuesday, it went well I think, as good as interviews go. The lady seemed to like me and the fact that I had a degree. So fingers crossed I will hear something in the next couple days about that!!
Then he can be the stay at home daddy, and I can be the bread winner, which will be completely strange after 12 years of the other way around, but I'm looking forward to the idea of that!!

So keep us in your thoughts and I know we will make it to the other side where the rainbows are and the sun is shining!! :D

Dammit I'm going to do it!!

I have considered myself "fat" (not in the good way) for about 11 yrs now (that is how old my baby will be in two months). So I have finally gotten fed up with it!! So long fat girl, here comes the hotness!! This all started about 6 weeks ago, I got an iphone and started playing with all the bazillion apps that you can get for it. Well hubby and I both got the "lose it" app. For the first time I am actually keeping track of what I eat, and I get more exited when I can put in my exercise. What is funny is somehow this little program has made me want to lose it. I started out just wondering what I actually ate during the day and found out that, well I ate to freaking much!! The first two weeks I only put in my food every couple of days cause I think I was scared to see the damage that I had been doing to myself. However the last 4 weeks I have been entering in my food after every meal and snack. I'm startin out slow at a pound a week but so far in 3 weeks I have lost 2.5 pounds. I'm not seeing it on my body but the scale is telling me that it is working. My goal is 100 pound, which will take two years (ugh!!) but I will make it this time I know it!!

this is me and my hunny at Epcot (me at 220 lbs, ugh I hate this picture!) But I have something to look forward to, a thinner healthier me!!! :D
More updates to come!!
