Another Update

I have been busy working and haven't had a chance to update my blog. I am getting used to working again and having Marcus with Aunt Sherrie. Been busy working 40 hrs. a week with optional overtime. I went in once or twice for extra hours. I am working on a computer all day, and come to the conclusion I really need my glasses now. I have a pair, but I think I need a new prescription, I don't think they're strong enough. Marcus will be 8 months on Sunday! He has 2 teeth on the bottom and has 2 teeth coming in on the top! My boy wont have that cute toothless smile anymore :( He is doing well. Cute as ever! Rick is busy at Ace with the mowers. We may actually get our days off coordinated together! That would be so nice. We would have Tuesdays and Wednesdays off. Havent been checking my email as often, havent even been on the computer because I am on it all day at work. Just want to come home and play with my baby! Chores are lacking, but I will get caught up eventually. Have a couple new pics to post.

Big Boy! 7 Months!

Meeting Chucky Cheese!
Hey Everyone!
Fish Lips!

First Day of Work

I am done with my training and worked on the floor by myself on Sunday. I have my own cubicle. I have my own space to make homey.What a long day. The system crashed on and off on my shift, so we had to write reservations by hand. Nice way to start my first day! LOL Got through it. It is easier actually doing it than being in training. Marcus is doing well. He hasn't gained weight, almost 19 lbs. still, but he is getting taller, he is 2'5" now. He is in 12 month clothes now. He is 7 months now. Can't believe it! Time goes by so fast! We went out to Sho-gun on Friday. It was so nice to go out to dinner while gma watched him. Not much going on besides working now. I get my first full paycheck on friday. I already have some overtime on it due to a staff meeting. It is nice to be able to catch up on the bills! Trying to keep up on the chores. Between our schedules, there isn't much time except on days off. I am getting used to having Sherry watch Marcus, but I really miss being with him like I was before working. Need to get envelopes to get pics out to you all. I will try soon.

Hey everyone!
Sorry I haven't updated my blog in a while. I have been busy with the new job. It has been a lot of information to take in, but it won't be so bad once I am out on the floor actually doing it. I am in training right now for 3 weeks. I have 1 week to go before we are on the floor with the lead representatives showing us how it really works live! Should be fun. I am sad to leave Marcus with auntie Sherry, but it is nice to actually get out and have adult conversations. LOL. I am trying to get back into the flow. It is so different with a baby and working too. It seems I have let the chores go a bit and need to catch up. The nice thing about it all is that I got my first paycheck yesterday in almost a year! Yay! I need to study and make sure I know what I am doing. I have a final on Thursday. Rick is good. We haven't celebrated his birthday or valentine's day yet because we are all sick right now. When we are gonna go to the Sho-Gun restaurant where he proposed to me 2 years ago next Friday! Can't wait! Maybe even go to a movie! LOL. Haven't done that in years! It will be like a real date! Haven't taken any new pictures lately, but will soon. Not sure if I mentioned that we had professional family pictures taken recently and are going to send them out as soon as I get a chance. Marcus goes into the pediatrician on Tuesday for his 6 month shots. Will let you all know his weight and height.

I got the job!

I got the job today. I went to the second interview and they hired me. I am working in the call center at the Red Lion Hotel. I will be answering calls for the 800 number for rooms and for tickets west. I am training starting Monday for 3 weeks from 9:30am to 4pm, and then working 12-8pm. I am looking forward to getting out of the house and bringing in money again. I will miss Marcus so much! I have been with him everyday for 6 months and have only been away from him for no more than 4 hours at a time. Ugh! It will be hard, but I have to do it. I will get all the benefits at the hotel again. Including insurance! If I do well in my work, I get bonuses and gift certificates, etc. It's a great incentive! I already know everyone who works there, including the people who interviewed me, due to working at the deli and serving them lunch. That is one reason I got the job. I know the hotel already. Well, time to do some shopping! I need to dress business casual. I have been in sweats for almost a year, LOL.

Very proud parents

Laina & Marcus meeting for the first time. I love this picture. Jen & Pete with their babies. This was takin when Laina was 28hrs old and Marcus was 2 days shy of 6 months. She is the cutest little girl. She will be daddies little princess.


Well the interview went ok. I was really nervous. I hate those questions..."what are your weaknesses" or " why should we hire you". Ugh. I got through it. I went in for the interview on Tuesday, and they to me I would get a call for a second interview that night or Wed. I didn't hear from them until last night. I was starting to wonder if they weren't going to call. So, I have a second interview on Tuesday at 10 am. Then I will take a drug test afterward, if I get hired or not, they have everyone do it. I am assuming I will get the job because I told them I would be flexible with my hours. I know, I know...dont assume, too late. Hopefully I will know Tuesday if I have the job. I will let you all know when I know.
Marcus is sitting up by himself now. He wabbles a little, but I dont need to support him anymore. I swear he's gonna say something any day now. It's getting exciting seeing him learn new stuff. His personality is coming out now. He seems pretty mellow now, but that will probably change with my luck.
