losing my job

Ugh, rumor has it (from a supervisor not just the rumor mill) that they are closing down my department. We always worried this would happen w/ the new hospital buy out. I'm in a float department where we cover the staffing needs of the whole hospital. I'm sure they would offer us jobs w/in the hospital, but our department makes alot more money than the other departments. I'm bummed I love my job and love the pay. I don't know what I'm going to do, I can't imagine taking a job on the floor making 1/2 the $$$ I do now::::::::::sigh:::::::::

Thursday...Organizing day, spend the time reorganizing whatever is getting out of hand, 1 load of laundry
Friday...Do whatever didn't get done earlier in the week, plus 1 load of laundry

Sat&Sun realistically are too busy with the kids activities to plan any cleaning schedule.

Ok, here's my daily Grind....

Here's my M-F schedule, now just need to figure out which chores get done on which days.

6:00 am Get Tierra up for school
7:10 am Tierra leaves for school
7:15 am Get Isaiah up for school
8:10 am Isaiah leaves for school
8:30-11:00 am nap
11:00 am M/W/F Get Xander ready for school
12-2pm Thursday Xander has speech
Monday 12:30pm-2:00 House work
2:00-2:30 pm get ready for work
2:30 pm leave for work
12:00 am get home from work.
12:00 am Eat dinner, fold load of laundry unwind of computer before bed
2:00 am go to bed

Need to get organized...

OK summer's over and believe me when I say I took the summer off and relaxed. I did the bare minimum of cleaning, cooking, you name it! I relaxed and enjoyed my summer and it was great. But a family can't function like that on a permanent basis, not effectively anyway. So I need to get back into a routine, I need to get myself back on a schedule, and do my weekly menu's again, and get a list of certain chores again. It's time to quit slacking and get back to reality...So I need to work on a daily/weekly schedule that I can commit to and follow and hopefully motivate myself to get back on top of things. So that is on my to-do list, this week, so starting Monday I will have a comprehensive effective plan put into place.

I can't believe this is happening!!!

Isaiah started first grade today. He's been so excited about it, I thought he would jump out of bed and drag me out of the house this morning. But instead he woke up and said "I can't believe this is happening" lol!!! My baby was NERVOUS!!! He knows he's in for a long day. He wouldn't even eat breakfast the poor thing! But he got dressed with the cute little outfit his sister picked out for him, and grabbed his over stuffed back pack and his lunch lovingly packed by his mama and trotted out the door. He was unusually quiet the whole ride to school. We got there, and I walked him in and he met his teacher and recognized a few of his friends (and of course the one kid he can't stand ended up in his class lol). I'm so nervous for him! I hope he does I wish I could be a fly on the wall in his class today!!!

Middle School, Football, and Cancer

Today was a day full of mixed emotions, lets baby girl went off to Middle School today, embarking on a new chapter of her life. With the pride and excitement I feel, it's hard not to feel a twinge of sadness watching her become less and less of a baby every day.

My middle one had his first foot ball game today, it wasn't an actual game per say, but what they call a scrimmage just 2 teams playing against each other, but nothing that actually counts on the roster. I was very proud of him, unlike what he's been showing in practice he actually did good out there. If they were keeping score I'm pretty sure his team would have lost, but that's OK, because he REALLY tried, and that's what's important to me.

Then on a crappy note, we got the test results back and my Grandma has breast cancer. I'm obviously devastated by the news, but hopeful that we caught it early and MAYBE there's some hope in it, although I know she will not doing anything very aggressive. My Grandma is a wonderful woman, she is the strongest Christian I know, she is my hope and inspiration in life, she's so smart and strong and just too incredible to describe. I'm sure God can not wait to have her home with Him but I'm selfish, and there's not a whole lot of great people like that in my life, and I really want to hold on to the ones I have. So anyway that was my day with its ups and it's sure was one heck of a day!

School begins

Where did the time go, I know it's cliche to say "it seems like only yesturday", but MAN how does time get away from you like this, I remember when I got pregnant with my first precious gift from God, I felt like I would be pregnant forever, then she was born, and I felt like she would stay a baby reach milestone after milestone and it's hard to imagine that you will ever be at the next one, but before you know it you're there. So here we are at another milestone in our lives, MIDDLE SCHOOL!!!! I'm excited and nervous as we begin this new venture of our lives. I am proud of the person she has become so far, and pray that as she grows into the person she'll become, she doesn't change too much. I pray she keeps her sweetness, her innocence, and her kind and loving spirt.
