It’s that time again, where a bunch of us bloggers give you a glimpse into our lives. So here goes:
~We somehow managed to control the flow of water into the basement, and have moved back downstairs. We got rid of the wet, ruined carpets, rearranged the living room, and got the musty smell taken care of.
~Somehow, despite the standing water and flooding, we’ve got mice again. Fortunately we have an awesome trap and we caught another bugger the other night. That now makes 2 adults and 9 babies. They’re not catch and release traps or live catch traps or whatever-they’re-called, cause 1) we can’t afford them and 2) this trap is the only one where the babies haven’t been able to eat the bait right off and not trigger the trap (that happened with the first 4 mice and it got old, fast).
~I got a new job! I got hired on at Convergys, a work from home agency, where I’ll be doing call center work (from home, yay!) and troubleshooting people’s internet issues. I start April 1, so wish me luck! We moved the craft room around a little too, so that I’ve got an office in there and I won’t bother Garrett, who also works from home, in the living room.
~I started a 365 photo-a-day challenge (check out the blog posts about it!) and while it was easy the first week, its proven to be more difficult as I go along. For a while I was beating myself up about not taking a picture every day, but I’ve decided that since its my challenge, then its ok if I miss a day or two 🙂
~My friend Sarah (that awesome chick at The Momisodes) and I are throwing a baby shower for our mutual friend next weekend. I found out last month that they don’t have anything for this baby (number 4 and totally unplanned) and since this friend is convinced no one would come to a baby shower, Sarah and I are out to prove her wrong. She’s not due till the end of April, but this friend told us the other day that the doctors aren’t sure if the baby will stay in that long. So it might become a “Look who’s born!” shower instead. I guess we’ll just have to see what the little guy decides to do.
~Hung out with that same Sarah this week. She invited me to a Mary Kay party at her Church and this week on her day off, I went over and hung out with her and her kiddos. According to Little Bit, I’m her best friend now. And then Girl Child said I was her best friend too. So all 3 girls in that house are now my best friend 🙂 I helped Little Bit with her math homework (I love math, Sarah does not) and then we played on the whiteboard giving each other math questions and trying to figure out what words the other was spelling. Sarah’s girls decided I should stay for dinner, so I got to share in the yummy Meatloaf Meatballs 🙂
~Garrett’s Mom and Dad came back from Florida last week. They were going to do Mom’s cancer surgery down there but the doctor wants her heart to get stronger first, so they’ll go back in June for the surgery, giving Mom the time to work on that and finish out the school year (she works at the middle school).
~Garrett went to Louisville last weekend to play in a card tournament. He won one of the raffle prizes, but he forgot to tell me how many games he won. He came home very happy and was glad to get a day with the guys out of the house. By the time the weekend rolls around, he’s usually a bit stir crazy so its nice when he gets to get out and do stuff like that.
~I got really crafty this week, starting and finishing both a jewelry holder for my bathroom and a thread holder for my craft room (I’ll get pictures of those up as soon as I can get my new camera synced with the computer). Next big craft to finish is quilting and binding the baby quilt that is a gift for next week’s baby shower. Guess I should get on that 🙂
