Wednesday, January 14, 2009's been a while since I've updated my blog so I thought I should just write a quick update.
The snow is gone...just like that! It's amazing how quickly it came and then how fast it melted. I love the snow and miss it, but don't miss driving in it or having the kids miss school because of it. But,thankfully, the kids are back in school! I keep wondering what the first week of summer will be like since they missed a whole week in December due to the weather. I wonder if they will extend school for that week or not? I wouldn't mind on less week of summer....hey, I'm for year round school anyway. :)
As much as the kids whined about having to go back, I think after a 3 week break, all 3 of them were secretly happy to return. This school year is already halfway over....where has the time gone?
I started my new job and am loving it. Although at times I feel just a little overwhelmed by the amount of stuff I have to learn and sometimes feel unsure of myself but I guess that's to be expected in a job like this. I think I'm really going to like my new job and my new co workers. I do LOVE my new schedule! I feel spoiled...well, blessed with this schedule that has been given me. I don't have to wake up with an alarm clock right now-I wake up between 10 and 11 and have my mornings to myself. My house has been staying clean and organized and my laundry has been caught up! I love it. Lots of time to have my devotional times, read my books and do errands if I have to. Bill has been awesome! He is waking up with the kids, getting them ready and on the bus for me-it's been such a big help! I am so blessed with such a wonderful husband!
We are doing pretty good on our financial stuff....we weren't as good in December as we were suppose to be, but we are back on track now. We see our financial counselor again this Friday. The accountability is great and we need it. We did end up paying off one of our credit cards in December and got some more money put in savings this month. I cant tell you how good it feels to be able to see the light at the end of the tunnel (and its not a train coming!!) One big thing we did was completely cancel cable! That has been great in saving money and our family time. We've been playing more board games with each other and Brady and I have been doing puzzles together.
But, I have a feeling that we are entering a more busy season. Baseball sign ups are this month. Thankfully only Riley and Elliot want to play this year. The fields are all at different locations so it makes it hard to figure out who is going to what game on what day's fun though. I love watching my kids play sports, so it's all worth it.
That's about it for now....hopefully I'll do better about keeping my updates going.
