There is actually really nothing new and exciting happening in my life, but I still wanted to update my blog. It's been sitting on the same post for almost a month.
Work is going great. I am really enjoying the change of pace. It was a little difficult at first, but now that the in-box is under control, I have been able to relax a little and enjoy it a whole lot more. My co-workers are a riot. There have been quite a few "laugh breaks" when we take a break and end up laughing almost the entire time. I really feel so blessed to have found a job I love so much before my last job closed up shop.
Home life is still a little crazy. Lulu is still a little terror. I love her dearly and she's getting a little better, but this child has a bit of a mean streak. She's into hitting an pulling hair. She looks at you with her adorable eyes and grabs a lock of hair and just pulls. Poor Jaelynn has been the victim of this on several occasions. She has so much hair and it's so easy to get a hold of. It's a good thing Jae loves her little sister, otherwise there may be trouble.
Jaelynn is still the best big sister in the world. I don't know how long it will last, but I love that she loves her little sister so much. She still says "Mom, I love being a big sister." That makes me smile. Another thing that made me smile is one of her "kidisms" The other day I was watching T.V. with the kids and told Jae that I would be right back, I just had to go potty. That's when she said "Well mom, since you never get any privacy........We're coming with you."
Rory is doing really well at work. His store looks awesome and he's been "unofficially" named the new training manager. They keep giving him "MIT's" (Manager in training), to train and then set them up in a new store as manager. I say "unofficially" because he has not been promoted, just nominated for the task. He has such a good reputation with his training abilities and his dedication to his own store that they decided he was the best man for the job. Unfortunately, he just earns "kudos" instead of an increase in salary. Too bad.
We still have a full house. Rory's mom and brother are still living with us. It's a bit difficult at times, but I'm trying to be more positive about it and just hoping that I am earning mega points in Heaven. If this goes on much longer I think I'll be a shoe in.
I hope that next time I post I'll have somethig really good to post about and not just a recap of everyday life.
