Time for an Update

Well, I guess I haven't posted anything for awhile so I should add some updates.

Jeff got a job working for his friends FIL. He and his friend had been talking a lot about going into business together and possibly taking over his FIL's business. Well, Jeff got the job on Tuesday morning and has been working there since that afternoon. So far he likes it because it is just him and the owner and Jeff gets to voice his ideas for the company and the guy likes them. Jeff is the type of person he was looking for to groom to possibly take over in the near future. He didn't want just a tech guy, he wanted someone with vision and new ideas to bring on more clients and more services to sell. The pay is a touch lower than at his old job BUT he gets paid hourly instead of salary so he could end up making more. The down side is no insurance so we'll have to look into getting that ourselves. I've filled out the paperwork for MIChild for the girls and hopefully I'll hear back on that soon (and hopefully their Dr. will accept it or I'm screwed).

Grandma is 93 today!! Hard to believe she made it to this day after all her health problems back in the spring. K and J flew in from NC to surprise her and we are taking her to lunch this afternoon. I'm even letting Gabby get out of school early for the day when I pick up Natalie from kindergarten so she can go to lunch with us too.

Good Vibes Needed

Jeff is currently at interview #2 of 3 for this week. Please, please, please send good vibes that he gets offered at least one of the positions (preferably #1 or #2). We're pretty sure he'll get offered #3 but we're also pretty sure the pay is 1/2 of his old job (which wasn't much) and there is no way we can live on that.

The girls are adjusting to school. Carpool started this week so I'm off the hook for mornings and just have to do K pick up and Gabby's end of day pick up. Gabby is back to her old self being stubborn in the mornings and driving me crazy. Natalie is fussing over her outfits and thinks she has to wear a skirt or dress everyday. Today I made her wear her Barbie crocs that the had to have and she was throwing a fit and I threw her into the carpool van with her crying and me apologizing to the mom driving. Luckily she has a daughter the same age and knows the drama well. I haven't gotten a phone call from school so she must have settled down on the road. I'm sure her teacher will appreciate her moodiness :P
