Almost Wordless Wednesday!

The ewww edition.

Our camera does not take really close up shots very well. I decided at this time that this is a good thing.

There are two spiders stuck in that pencil lid. TWO! ick.

New calling

I'm now the Assistant Cub Master. I will be a sucky one right off the bat though, lol. I will not be attending any pack meetings but I will help plan/prepare for them. So I guess I can't be too sucky ;) and yes, I will be keeping my Assistant Librarian calling too, because its a sunday only calling I guess they feel its ok to have two :). I don't mind too much though, its an easy gig and I can knit or do homework as the case may be.

A few photos just for you...(because I know how much more fun that makes the blog)

Pics of the kids at USU in the office where my sister and b-i-l work. They are wildlife biologists.

Littleman was not pleased to learn that he couldn't take his "new coat" home :P.

Ramble ramble, blah, blah. blah

Work is going well. I'm finally getting out of the boring stuff and into what I'll actually be doing. Yeah, it will be repetitious and could get boring, but talking to different people will be fun. Next week I'll be on the phones doing my real job :)

My house was so clean last week! But this week its a mess and I'm too tired to care. I am getting more and more busy as the days go on. Not sure that I enjoy that one too much.

I also got a new calling, I haven't been sustained yet so I can't announce what it is yet. Just one more thing to add to my long list of stuff to do. I guess thats part of life :)

And I interviewed for a 2nd job yesterday. This one will be working from home, which is nice with these gas prices we have to deal with now. Hopefully I get the job and can start working soon. It will take awhile to start making real money, but it can happen :)

I will be enrolling the kids in the public school online program. They will be at home still but will have a teacher they meet with weekly and the school district will make the lesson plans, which is what I need help with now. Plus they'll have all the state and federal testing, which will be nice to have if we do end up sending them back to public school. I have lots of paperwork to do for that and LittleMan has to get some immunizations, he doesn't know that yet though ;).

Stu likes his new job, much less stress, which makes me happy :). He posted about it on his blog if you want to learn more about it (shameless plug for my hunny's blog :) ). They may be hiring for at-home help fairly soon too, so I may go for that as well. We'll see, I think I'm getting ahead of myself a little bit ;)

I have begun looking at houses online and have fallen in love with a kitchen in a home thats just down the street from me. I may go through it in a week or so, if its still there then :).

Thats my long rambling and boring update for this week. Until next time.....

ETA: I walk about a mile a day, 1/2 to work and about 1/2 from work (I start walking while Stu comes to pick me up, I try to get farther from the office than the last time, but so far it hasn't happened, lol.) So my ticker is moving but not fast enough, I probably wont make the July 4th goal but thats ok. Its getting me moving again. If I start riding my bike home from work, I will make it for sure but for now I'll walk.

First day of work.

Today is the day. I will be starting training at 3 pm. I'm a little nervous but mostly just tired, lol.

My in-laws will be watching the kids for 2 hours every day until I'm done with training and my schedule begins later, so dh can watch the kids. And one of my in-laws will be watching the kids at my house! So I have to go scrub every nook and cranny :P

I may not be blogging as much as I used to, we'll see how things work out. I may get into a great routine and be all organized, but I doubt it :). I still homeschool the kids, I still make as much of our food from scratch as I can, and I still love being online, tee hee. But I'm trying to substitute knitting for my online addiction because I can knit outside at the park or in the backyard or even in the kitchen while the kids play with playdough. I guess you'll just have to add me to your bloglines or googlenews or whatever the blog tracker sites are, that way you wont have to check back daily and see the same old post sitting there :)

A short update on the post below, about k-bull, they are apologizing, in person, this morning. I'm glad that they want to make Melinda feel better. I'm glad that the dj's are apologizing. I'm not sure that I'll listen to k-bull again for awhile, but this is a good step for them.

Have a great week!

Hypocrites suck!

A local radio station, one that I listen to regularly, boasts about their support of our Troops and their families. They have contests regularly for the families of deployed soldiers. I always thought it was wonderful that they did this because not many radio stations have contests for the families alone, its for anyone that wants to play.

I read a blog post yesterday, from Emily about a friend that "won" and how poorly she was treated. It really made me mad, how can a person treat another human being that way and go on to pretend that it never happened? I listened to KBULL quite a bit yesterday, while traveling to and from Logan, and several times they talked about supporting the troops and their families. Bologna!

Pass the message along and help show everyone KBULL's true side, that they are a bunch of liars that couldn't help one person out or even apologize for a simple mistake. Stupid.

Birthday Pics

Sorry for posting these so late, but life is.....crazy.

First up is the cake. Not too bad for a little sandwich baggie and "quick, make spidey's face so we can eat"

Next up is the "they are singing for me" picture.

Blowing out the candles.

And "eww, the smoke is stinky" lol.
