May Twenty Sixth

birdhouse1

Finally taking a moment to visit my blog… I have been trying to read blogs but Google reader is not working quite right and does not keep you logged in… I was behind over 600 so finally just marked all as read because it was not clearing them out as I was reading and then adding them back out after I cleared them… Still able to visit and read so I shouldn’t complain…

I have good news to share………………………………..

Hubby started his new job yesterday!! The UPS Store… Part time for now, building to full time as business picks up… Mon-Fri, 10-2… perfect schedule for getting son3 to and from school…

I’m excited but not as excited as I thought I would be… Guess any change takes time even when it’s good news… I laugh at hubby though… for the last nine months he has been the perfect house hubby to the point of being underfoot… and one morning back at work and now it’s ALL About Work… to where he’s already back to his old habits in the house of being a working dad/husband… but then that’s a good thing to which we are very thankful…

I had the whole house to myself yesterday morning as everyone was at work and school… Blissful… Barely spent any time on the computer as I keep thinking of things to get done with no one here to distract me… laundry, dishes, even mopped the kitchen floor… just general tidy up with no one here to undo it right behind me… this morning the same as I close tonight so home this morning enjoying the quiet again…

I’m settled into my new job now except for the certification looming over my head for the 8th of next month… an annual thing now of all footwear leads being certified in the footwear department with the help of the footwear associates… 54 questions we have to pass with a 90%… ranging from reports to processes to sales floor standards to stockroom standards to associates knowledge with the customers… we know of everything but so very hard to have everything 100% at all times but for the 8th we will have to be… this week however we have no hours as we are making up for all the hours we used at the beginning of the month for the last visit… so most associates only have 4 hours this week… then this weekend is Memorial Weekend so we will be very busy… I’m still waiting to hear how many hours we will get for next week and/or have overnighters… but in addition to getting everything ready for the visit it will be a lot of recovery from getting so far behind this week… I keep telling myself one day at a time as I walk with God each day…

June 7th is son3’s school trip to the local water park… When son2 was younger they didn’t go to the water park until 5th grade so I’m not too keen on son3 going but go he will… will drill the rules into him before he goes and send lots of sunscreen, towels and shirts… son2 got a VERY BAD sunburn when he went… son2 had never been to a water park but had been to full size pools before… where son3 has only been in the 4ft pool in the back yard… although usually when he goes on any school trips he always spends all his time in the video arcade…

Then June 9th is the last day of school… and the visit will be over with us hopefully passing or then we will have to do it again… June 12th is my birthday… and then hopefully I will get my vacation approved for the week starting June 13th…

We celebrated girlfriend’s 21st birthday last Friday… still have the decorations up, hopefully hubby will get them down this weekend… mostly the balloons left that son1 was going to take to her… we had chocolate pudding cake with Hello Kitty decorations… she then celebrated with family and friends testing the drinking ways with son1 taking care of her as she had a bit too much… this weekend they are going away to the beach for the weekend to finish off the birthday celebrating… next month they will celebrate their two year anniversary and son1’s one year anniversary at his current job… then it will be time for son1 to follow through on his plan of joining the military…

Son2 has been finishing up his year as a junior… supposed to be buying a year book today, nothing like the last minute… tennis is done… got his team pictures that I need to scan in to share… tomorrow is the award night but he doesn’t seem to want to go… he is also finishing up on one last art project for art class…

Last night we went to son3’s Open House to see all his art work and reports that we, I mean he, did this year… the teacher was teasing everyone and congratulating the parents on their dioramas… I wonder what grade I got on my diorama…

The kittens are getting so big and getting into everything… we still put them in the bathroom for the night or when we go out… however the other day they some how opened one of the bathroom drawers that blocked the bathroom door and locked themselves in the bathroom til hubby and son2 were able to get them out… with hubby working now we may start leaving them out at night and then just putting them in the bathroom while we are at work and school… then work on slowly keeping them out all the time once the boys are on summer break…

Still two hours til I go to work but need to shower, get dressed, have lunch and tidy up before I go…

On this day, God wants you to know

... that there are many truths, and they all point to one source - God. Do not spend energy arguing whose truth is righter, - just like all life springs forth from one source, so are all truths but a reflection of God. Accept another truth as another way of loving God.

On this day, God wants you to know

... that how bad things may look right now means nothing, - it's how good they can be with God's help that counts. In life you can absolutely count on one thing, - everything can turn around in one day, in one minute sometimes. Don't you dare to give up, - you might be a moment away from a windfall.

Happy Journaling…

I love your God wants you to know quotes! They are so true! So glad that your hubby got the job and I hope they have lots of success and business gets better so he gets full time. Yep, one day at a time is the only way to go. Have a great Thursday!

Always enjoy reading your blog when I get to come here. I love hearing about the shoe store and what is going on with your family.
Take care and good luck and have fun on your vacation!

LOL you make me feel better about marking "all read at 2000+". I just have never been able to catch up since the surgery and still don't have all my energy back so every day's reading is a struggle. Glad hubby is back to work. LOL again though - men are creatures of habit! Have a great holiday weekend. I hope you get some of it off to spend with the family. I know how hard retail is!

yea for hubby getting a job! Thank you Lord!! I know that is a big relief for you all! too cute about hubby going back into "working" mode, but glad he is working!! I cannot believe son2 will be a senior next year! where has this time gone? I think water parks are great, but always worry about sun burns too. I think the teachers need to really stress there at the water park PUT ON SUNSCREEN every few hours. Glad you got a few hours to yourselves in a quiet house; I'm sure you will do great with the certification at work. Happy birthday to the girlfriend! I can't believe they've been together two years; again where is this time going?

glad you updated, was wondering how things were going!
