Employment update

Ray's interview went well and he is being offered the job. There is a packet on it's way with the salary they are offering and it will now depend on that. So we will see.

Cody needs better supervision

Cody informed me that our dog, Mia, had something caught in her fur and it felt like a bug, so (doing what he had to do) he cut it out with some scissors. I don't think he realized that this was alarming to me. I've noticed that when Cody does things, he tells us about it after the fact. Except for the time he tried out a razor that was left out.. he didn't say anything about that. We should keep a closer eye on him.

Hip Hop Abs

Yep, I bought it, I tried it, and I love it. It is the funnest workout I've ever done in my life. The workout is hip hop dancing while tightening your abs and it's fun and funky, but simple. Not to mention, Shaun T. is easy on the eyes. I love the way it feels like I'm actually dancing, not just doing workout moves. I can't wait until next time. Now, don't expect to see results because I have the ability to offset any workout with the consumption of food. But maybe I'll get motivated with this new workout.

I've almost made it...

...through this week of work. Only one more day left. It's been pretty grueling because, thanks to Spring Break, I haven't had the excuse to leave work to pick up my kids from school which helped to make the afternoon go by faster. Yea for Wednesday. It's my favorite work day.

I have laundry to do and things to straighten around the house, but I think Cody and I will go for a walk instead. He keeps me company. He'll grow out of wanting to do this one day so I better grab him and hold on while I can.

Ray has an interview...

this evening with a manager from the Midland, Texas based company known as Weatherford. They will be dining in one of Tulsa's finest restaurants. That's something that Ray tossed my way, thinking I would be jealous. I'm not impressed with that sort of thing because I'd rather eat at Olive Garden.

And so this dance begins again. More later.

My weekend project...

...was painting the utility room. I took advantage of this time because Ray was out of town with Hayden. Less people in the house meant less interruptions. This little room has needed a fresh coat of paint for several years now but I was undecided on what color of paint until recently. I think this Khaki color was what I meant to paint my master bath but went too far on the green side of the color palette with that project. I'm just not good at picking paint colors. Oh well, good thing about paint, it's easy to change.

But now my utility room is complete. Even the inside of the cabinets are organized. The new red baskets on top of the cabinets helped make more space inside the cabinets and that made organizing much easier.

Enjoy the small things

It was blissful being outside yesterday sitting in the warm sun, watching Hayden play soccer. I love Spring and who doesn't it? I guess two days of that kind of weather is just too much to ask for in a weekend. Today's forecast: rain.

And counting

My wedding anniversary recently passed. It gets overshadowed every year by Hayden's birthday which is the day before. We mention it in passing as it's coming up and then usually forget it's here on that day. It's not a day much different from any other day except for the fact that it reminds us that we've been doing this for 22 years. Who would of thought?

Update on Dylan

He seems to be fine. It appears to be a hematoma. If it had been a bit bigger, the doctor would have drained it. But his treatment consist of placing ice packs on it as much as possible and some stretching exercises to prevent this from happening in the future. He should be able to play soccer again tomorrow, if he can tolerate it.

Sleep Be a Lady Tonight

Well, that was a glorious night of "no sleep whatsoever". I don't know if it was the medicine that I'm taking for strep (not the antibotic, the Mucinex for the other symptoms) or the fact that I hadn't eaten since 1:00pm yesterday. Could have been the combination of both. Whatever it was, sleep did not want to come for me. I maybe got 3-4 hours and ending up getting up at 4:30. Nice.

I took Caitlin to the doctor yesterday and found out she has strep. So no school for the 4th day for her. Not to mention the soccer she's missing. Luckily the doctor put us both on meds since I've been sick the past couple of weeks and could have had it myself.

Today I'll be taking Dylan to the EOOC because his soccer trainer at the school thinks he may have "Compartment Syndrome" in his leg and apparently it could be serious. Dylan thinks it's not as serious as they may think and you know 17 year olds.... they know everything. But anyway, I was told to get him in immediately, so first thing this morning, we will know something.

I'm off to sleep do house chores. I mean.. what else would a person be doing at this time of morning.
