New Job

I have been looking for a new job, I love OCC but I am a contractor here with no future career. I did an interview with Trinity Health and they want me to work for their helpdesk. I have had classes with people who work at Trinity and they all say it is a really good place to work. I told my boss and the guys at work that I would be leaving and they are sad to see me go but happy for me. Jasmine is real supportive even if my hours won't be the best. I'll be doing Thursday and Friday from 8am-6:30pm and Saturday from 4pm-2:30am. I know, it is only 30 hours a week so I am going to start there part time, but they said there is plenty of OT to get and that I should be able to move full time after not too long. The benefits are much better there as well.

I start a week from Monday with 4 weeks of training, I am very excited and doing something new with many opportunities. Wish me luck!

One Month!!!

Today is offical, one month of marriage!!!

Things have been going great for Jasmine and I, we finished painting the kitchen with some help, all we have left is the trim in the bathroom. We got the entertainment center put up and we have our computers set up now. The month has gone by quickly but I've enjoyed every minute of it.

My Education Blog

I started a blog for my E-commerce class, but decided to post all of my educational works on it, check it out! =)

Plus if you click my ads I get money ;)

Tired of LOL

I got tired of saying LOL and not actually laughing, so I decided to coin my own phrase...

LOTI - Laughing on the inside

My goal is to get it to be a well known internet slang word, wish me luck!!!

Family Day

Today we went to Aunt Joyce's, and Uncle Joe and his wife Mantha were up visiting. He hasn't been up in 15 years!

Eric got up early and made me pancakes this morning! He left them on the counter, which, we discovered, we can no longer do. Max dragged a pancake off the plate, and was actually eating it! We snuck up on him (with the camera) and caught him red handed. As you can see, he was unable to hide his guilt!

trying out youtube

We bought a shade for our bedroom window and made a new cat toy with the box! It is a little dark, and you'll have to excuse the messy house...we were in the middle of cleaning up after all of the installing of things we did all day.

It might take an extra couple of seconds to load but its really cute!

Maybe we shouldn't encourage it...

but its so cute! We have a bowl of cherries sitting out on the counter, and yesterday we saw Ian carrying one. We assumed it had fallen on the floor. But tonight, we watched him jump up on the counter, get a cherry out of the bowl (by the stem) carry it under the table, and then start batting it around and pouncing on it!

Happy August!

Yeah, he might just be the cutest kid ever.
Camden is 2 months old now, and doing great. He's so big! He's starting to really smile now, and he's starting to make baby noises. We used to just stare at him, but now, he stares back, and makes funny faces at us! He smiles the biggest when Sam is around. He's a momma's boy!

We have had a pretty busy week. While Eric was mountain biking with Uncle Guy on Tuesday, Sam and Alex came over to watch the wedding video. I made a salad and chocolate chip banana bread (that is sooo delicious!) and we ordered pizza. It was a lot of fun.

On Wednesday, we had the first bridesmaid's meeting for Janelle's wedding. That was fun...but I think we did more laughing than planning.

After the meeting, Eric took Sam and I out for a drink. I had a raspberry stoli and lemonade, which I really liked, and Sam had a long island (which I really don't like) and then we shared a fuzzy navel (which was a little stronger but I liked it). Eric had a sprite. I'm on a quest to try all the drinks (well, just the ones that are fruity and delicious). Its going to take awhile. My next 2 goals are one that is blue, and one that is frozen.

Today I had lunch with my dad, ran some errands, and then made dinner for Eric. Clam chowder with bread for dipping, corn on the cob (from Grandma), and beet greens (from Eric's mom's garden) sauteed with garlic, cumin, pepper, salt, and hot pepper flakes. The flake bites were a little much for me but Eric liked it. The clam chowder was from a can...but I'm looking up how to make it for next time. I still haven't used my crock pot...maybe I can use it for that.


I can't believe its already August! I'm excited to go back to work though. I miss seeing the kids every day. David is going to a new preschool, and its 3 days a week instead of 2. That will be exciting. And Kaylee is so talkative now. She's really funny. Last week she said "I love David" and I said "I love David too" and she said "no, you love Eric!"

This weekend is organization weekend...trying to get everything put away and not just stuffed in the spare room. We need to put up some more shelves, and I'd like to hang the art we got for the dining room.

If you look up on the right of the page, I added a link to my food blog. You can see my recipes, pictures, and you can write reviews!
