Our Weekly Thread (with a new pic - he he)
Love the new pic!!
Well I'll start off with nothing really new. I wish I could say DH got the job-but we are still waiting for a call back. They did call him and on his third interview the area manager said everybody really liked him and was just kind of explaining the position a little more. It seemed like he got it-but no offer yet. So then he got a call that he needed to go through a background check before they could move forward. That was Friday, so we are basically just waiting. It seems like he got it, but it's just like ahhhhh, he is waiting by the phone like a teenage girl. lol.
I'll definitely update you guys! We decided if/when he gets a job we are going to buy a queen size bed. We are still in a full size bed. hehe. I really can't wait! :D
This week is normal. Nothing going on!!!
Hi ladies! I love the pic too Becca! May have to borrow for my bio! : )
@Elise - What position is he applying for? How is he holding up through the job searching process? I remember when we upgraded to a King bed. Oh the room in the bed! So yes, you are going to be in heaven when you get a Queen!
Weekend was busy crazy. Got stuck on a double Saturday at my second job and it was my stepson's birthday. I ordered his cake from the Kroger by my primary job because I thought I was getting off work at three and my second job is only 15 minutes away. Luckily I only had one client, so I went to pick up the cake and brought her home with me. My stepdaughter and nieces were also over for the weekend and tore our house up! After everyone went home I cleaned home and enjoyed a quiet dinner with my hubby and watching movies. My stepdaughter's mother called while we were relaxing so I assumed she was calling to thank me for braiding my stepdaughter's hair. WRONG! I heard her yelling through the phone saying that my stepdaughter told her I had hit her. DH saw my face turn pale and how hurt I looked and that set him off. I would never discipline her because of all the nonsense we go through with the mother and she called child protective services on us last year in August with false allegations. If she does anything she shouldn't I always tell DH. They were about to have a huge argument and then she says my stepdaughter told her mommy I was just playing. DH was very upset and told her she is a child, you shouldn't be calling accusing anyone of anything. I was so hurt because I just did her hair and had brought her clothes. No matter what I try to do to make peace for the children's sake, there is always bull. It just makes not having children of my own much harder. Hope everyone has a great week and here is my stepson with his cake.
Tressy, you are so strong to be dealing with all that stepdaughter/mother BS. But love that pic of your stepson and his cake!! DH applied for a position with Enterprise (rent-a-car) and it's basically a manager in training position. It would be so great if he got this job! He's doing ok during this process but it kills him. He hates being home all day, and looking for jobs stinks. Oh well, fingers crossed that this week he has the job!!
Thanks Elise! I don't like that weird look on his face. He drives me nuts whenever we take pictures of him he makes weird faces. Lol. I got my fingers and toes crossed for DH!!! Blessings going up, prayers coming down!
DH got the job!! He starts tomorrow!! Yay!
@Elise--YES!!! SO happy for you guys, I am sure he is thrilled to be back to work!
@Tressy--I cannot even believe the amount of stress that is brought on you and Cale from the stepdaughter/her mom combo. You are so strong for being able to get through it with poise and grace. Your stepson is SO cute!!!!
I've had a busy week. Last night we had a big fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis, it was a great evening as usual! Tonight we are going to a Celtic Woman concert. It was DH's Christmas gift-he is so excited, it is pretty adorable!
ELISE!!! I am at work doing my happy dance! If I could I would get on top of my desk and do major fist pumps and MC Hammer! Lol. Tell DH congratulations!! All my toe and finger crossing worked! Lol
@Jess - Was a lot of money raised? Have fun tonight at the concert!
THANK YOU!! He was so happy yesterday when he got home, he loved it!! I think this will be where he's at for a long time now!
@Tressy--YES, it was a big hit! We've done this fundraiser for about 15 years and this was our highest total to date. Our next fundraiser is the Great Strides for Cystic Fibrosis walk May 4th--hoping it is our best walk yet!
