Yes...I am still alive!!

Hey, everyone! So, I know that I have fallen off whole blogging thing, but I am back :)

Things have been a little crazy around here lately, so I have not had to much time to blog. So, here is a small update and I hope to get back to blogging more regularly.

I became and Aunt last month. I have a precious new little nephew and I kinda like being able to hold a little baby again. It is alittle weird seeing a little baby boy bc I am use to little girls. I have had to change a couple of diapers and I def. have to have my sister help me bc I don't know how you are suppose to clean the extra parts.

I have not been really working since November of last yr. bc of the economy not doing so well, so my boss kinda had to let me go. I was really just filling in up at the office if he needed me. Well, I decided that it wasn't working for us anymore and that I needed to find a full time job. The only problem I was running into, was finding a job that would pay enough for me to justify putting the girls in daycare. Daycare is def. not cheap and I am not going to work just for the money to go straight to them. I would much rather stay at home and be with our girls than that. So, I started looking and I put my application in with the State for a clerical position and I actually got a call back for an interview!! I was shocked and excited, but nervous bc I have never really had a formal interview before. So, I went in for my interview on a Friday and I cried when it was over bc I thought I blew it!! It is a great job with amazing benefits and I was crushed bc I just knew that I was not going to get it. Well, on Tuesday, I got a call from the supervisor that interviewed me and he asked if I would except the position!! I told him of course and I just started this past Monday. I absolutely LOVE it and I really like all the ppl. that I work with. It is a VERY fast paced job, so time really flies by and there is never a dull moment. I am mainly going to be doing scheduling for 11 caseworkers in our department and I will more than likely have to help with the other departments. This week, I did some computer training, scheduling, screening applications and so on. It was hard at first to be away from the girls so much, but it is a great thing for our family that I got the job.

With me starting the new job, the girls started daycare. Avery has attended this daycare before and I really liked it in the past. She really was learning lots of new things, so I enrolled both girls in there. The 1st 3 mornings were AWEFUL bc the girls cried when I took them to their rooms and of course I had to cry!! Haidyn, got sick on Tuesday night with a high fever and I thought she might have an ear infection. We took her to Urgent Care Wed. night after I got off of work and they went ahead and did a flu test and it came back POSITIVE!! The dr. told me not to freak out! He said, it isn't as bad as the tv is making it to be and that she should be fine in 7 days. So far, no complications and she is actually not having alot of the symptoms he told me she would. Now, Avery is starting with some of them, but no fever yet. I am hoping hers is just allergies and the H1N1 flu!!

So, everyone is doing great and we are loving that the fall weather is here!! This is my favorite time of the year and I can't wait for Halloween. The girls, James and I put up our Halloween decorations last weekend and I LOVE IT! The fair starts here for us next week and I am super excited for it. The girls will have a blast and I can't wait to go to some concerts.
