The last day of Jan already!?

Time has been flying! I can't believe how quickly! Jackson is 4 now can that be?! Now I just have to get through today, and the first 3 days of next month. Then I will have my interview! I am so nervous, anxious, you know the normal. I haven't done anything but be mom in so long! I am ready for change and at the same time I know if this goes well and I get a job the first day I HAVE to leave my kids I am most likely going to cry! I am a big baby I know. I will cross those bridges when we get there I suppose. No use worrying about the details before I know if I will need to. Anyway that is the update here. I hope everyone has had a great month!!

Uncle Jeff

Please keep praying for uncle Jeff. They now believe that the meds for his staff infection have caused all the other symptoms and have in turn put him on an iv of a differnt one. We are praying this solves the problems and his health returns.

I think family business should stay family business!!!!!

I am sorry for another one of these vents... But seriously who would like to get on facebook and find out that their child, (grown or not) is being rushed to the ER?! I know my heart would simply break into a million pieces. Why wouldnt you make sure a mother knows. I am not trying to turn the concetration. I agree it should be about Uncle Jeff. I just wish that everyone would leave family business in family.

In other words please pray for Uncle Jeff. He is in the hospital and they have no idea what is going on. Been doing tests since last night. His heart beat is irregular and his blood pressure is all over the place. I guess ( I read on facebook) that they are doing a dye test on his belly to try and figure out the issue. And are considering transfering him to UW. Please please pray hard! We need it. Thank you all for your support.

Again I know its been too long

Well I feel like a HUGE dork. Today I have to update my application again for the 3rd time! I don't know why I haven't been able to get it right lol. At least the lady that keeps calling me has heard the kids and completly understands. And she thinks this should be the last time ( I only have to fix a date). I am so anxious and nervous for next Friday. It has been so long since I have done anything other then being mom. I am really looking forward to the chance. I hope I don't blow it!

In other news. I have a migraine that has been with me since Saturday evening. I have tried everything. Bla... I did try something else about 1/2 an hour ago and (knock on wood) think it may be helping. Now just if I wasn't coming down with a cold with it. Oh well.

Friday night I had Gabe the boys had so much fun! I can't wait to do it again. Hopefully soon it will be in a place of our own... Crossing our fingers on how the 4th goes. I am ready for some big change in 2011!!!!

Hopefully later this afternoon I can make my button and figure out how to accept my award from Jamie lol. I will get all this blogging stuff down haha.

PS Lets keep Rachel in our prayers. She is going through a hard time, and I just want her to heal and be able to stay strong for her and her son! And of course keep praying for us, and the 4th! And that maybe Evan will get a call too!!

I know i know its been too long!

Hi all! Jackson is now 4 years old! We had a great weekend with Aunty Cassy at the phoenix inn Olympia! Jackson got to open presents Sunday, then we went to the hands on Children's museum and had ice cream cake. After everyone settled a little from the cake we went for a nice swim! It was all in all a great day. For Jackson's actual birthday Cassy and I took him to the old spaghetti factory and the science center. He had a lot of fun!

So on Jack's birthday I got great news that we have been praying for! Thank you all for your support and don't quit praying yet! I got an interview at boeing!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is not until Feb. 4th so keep us in your prayers and keep praying they call Evan too! I am very excited about this news! I hope like hell it goes well! Anyway that is the update for now and I am sorry it took so long!

happy hump day all!

I was doing so good!

Well poo on this snow then rain. Really don't want to take the kids walking in this crud! Maybe it will be better tonight! Anyway its been awhile I know. I am just trying to mentally prep myself for this weekend of fun! It is Jackson's 4th birthday on monday! Can you believe its been 4 years!? I can not! Where does the time go!? He is growing oh so much. Learning so much and has so much personallity can choose who he likes and doesnt like. We are excited for Aunty Cassy to come to Olympia! We are going to stay in a hotel room with her Saturday, Sunday and Monday! Jackson had got to stay in a hotel room in Savannah for his birthday last year so now he sort of expects it. I know what an odd thing for a 4 year old but whatever. Too bad the daddy has to work this weekend last minute. This working for a temp agency thing sucks! He can't really ask for the time off :( I hope that something pulls through for us!!

PS Hope everyone has a great hump day!!!

busy busy busy!

So this morning I woke up fed the kids ate a little myself. Bundled us all up and we headed out for a walk. We all enjoyed ourselves! Then I set off to work with resumes and jobs... I have had some great help getting our resumes done more professionally! I hope this helps I really think it should. Now I also have a huge list of places to apply! I just feel good today! So thank you all for your tips and support!!!!!!

I have finally come to realize what is/ has been bothering me! Me just me in general. Talking to one of my good friends from high school and I realize I have totally changed who I am. I have lost me. That is my new years resolution... To find me again! I know I am in there I just need to break back out. Even knowing that is a big part of what has been bothering me has began a healing process with some of this termoil inside me. That and to loose about 10 pounds I know it sounds crazy but I need to do it. I hide it well or try to. But its there.

Anyway if anyone has any suggestions or advice on a mother of 2 loosing 10 pounds and reconnecting with herself I would love to hear them!!!! Comment away!


You know somedays are just tough! I think today is going to be really tough. For some reason I feel extremely emotional, on top of having about 3.5 hours of sleep due to both children deciding they didn't want or need to sleep. That makes for one cranky mom!

Anyway please remember to keep Jamie in your prayers the path to recovery seems so far off for her. I can only imagine (thank god) how she must feel. I don't beleive I would be strong enough to pull through like she is doing.

Also we are praying that one of us gets into better work. Both of us have applications in somewhere big that are under consideration and have been since November. We pray that something pans out. We could really use a break. Evan's current job has horrid hours with even worse pay. However we are thankful that he has a job.

I just wanted to get all this out there. I hope that everyone has a good Thursday!

Awww... last one I must say I know his face is messy however sometimes it is easier to let them sleep! I miss the passing out anywhere stage!

I hope everyone enjoyed there little look into our 2008!

Some people are funny

So just a note. I know I am on the young side for 3 kids. But remember the oldest is not mine. I didn't have a child in highschool. That being said, why do people have to be so judgemental. I have not complained about "missing" anything in life. I dont feel that by being a mother I have missed anything. I think that I have gained more from having them. Then anyone who doesnt have kids has gained from going to parties and being out all the time. I however am not saying everyone should have children it is a tough job, but I believe it is a good job for me! I have always wanted to have kids and wouldn't change having them! I believe my kids have provided joy to peoples lives other then just ours. Just saying I love my family just the way it is. So if you feel the need to tell me I am wrong please keep it to yourself. I do not like hearing that my kids are wrong and like any mother I am going to defend them and get my point across and you may not want to hear it. So have a good day all!

I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

I am glad to announce that a few things have already began to look brighter for us this year and its only a few days in! Maybe this year I will get the hang of blogging. Figure out all this layout stuff and start doing it regularly... Or maybe not haha.

I just wanted to wish everyone a very happy and healthy 2011! I really have no updates at the moment!
