Wow... 3 months already!!!

I was gone so long because our computer went poop on us. Any who... I am going to do this really quick ( mostly because there is soooo much to talk about ).

Really nothing has changed for me. Still doing nothing with my life. Still working the same shift working the same job. Fun times. I am stuck in the revolving door where... I need to get a job working like 2-11. However, in order for it to make since to pay for daycare (or baby sitter) I need to make like 3K a month. Yea... no problem. I want to work for a police department, dispatch or flat out be a police officer. Many problems with that goal though... too many to go into. The only thing I can do is wait. Although time is NOT on my side, I have no choice. Not to mention... no one is hiring in our area. I am even willing to drive up north, or even south. Still nothing. I have been wanting to get back into the gym, but I am not willing to sign up for it right now, without knowing if it is going to be easy enough to pay for every month. It seems silly, but I think by going back to the gym, it will give me more confidence in myself, and it will make me feel better. I have been dealing with these headaches for so long, I just think it would do more good than bad.

Well, again, nothing much is going on there. He has been itching to get out in the yard to fix it up. The fact that I was sooo pregnant last summer, the heat, and the wet winter has made our yard a mess. We did not really do any yard work last summer. I could not do much until I was 36 weeks, but by that point I didn't want to do anything. Now we have these 2 dogs, and they have literally recked our yard. We just got our tax refund and are doing the roof, and yard with the money. I can not wait to see how it looks, and I know John is super stoked too.

Ummm. He still doing the Cub Scout thing. Now that the weather has been nice the last few days, he has gotten to go out for a hike with them. There are some cool things coming up for them next month too, so that should be fun. He is currently reading the Harry Potter books. He got them from Papa for Christmas. He finished the first book earlier this month, and is 1/4 of the way through the second one. He keeps wanting to take a break from them, but we are asking him to finish this book before he takes a break. Then he can do an easier book for a while. He has cabin fever bad and can not wait for the weather to get a bit warmer and to stay nice for longer than 3 days. We just had to put his guinea pig to sleep the other day. That was really hard on him, and he is still really sad about it. I really hate to say it, but I think it was a reality check on how important it is to take care of the animals.

After a long 2 years, I finally have her using the potty. She all of a sudden wanted to use it after seeing cousin Louise using it at Christmas time. She had her first poop accident today, but she has been pooping in the toilet for almost 2 months, and that is really great in my book. Still doing the pull up thing when we leave the house, she is good at home about remembering, but not so good when we are out and about. It is crazy how much more clear she is speaking now too. It was like a light turned on. I do remember that with Spencer too. It is nice to have a conversation with her now.

WOW. He is going to be 7 months old tomorrow. WOW. I am super sad that he is getting sooo big sooo quick. At the same time, I am sick of getting up in the middle of the night. I can not wait for him to grow out of that one. He just started crawling yesterday, and the rest of the family saw him do it tonight. He went from "was that him crawling?" to "OMG, he just crawled all the way to Spencer!!". Crazy. He gets a little bigger every freaking day. I know that this is our last baby... but I sure do love me some babies. I will miss the special connection I always have with my kids when they are babies. There is something about Jackson... he is such a warm little man. It is almost like he knows things he should not know yet. He is always so happy, and glad to see me. His smile is the best part of my day.

Other than that... we have been really into the Olympics the last week, and looking forward to the last week. Can't wait for the warm weather, and to open the doors. Want to spring clean, but... it is never clean in my eyes. Guess I am always spring cleaning.

Hi Cori, glad you have a puter again, it's hard when they're down!
It was so nice to read your family update!!! I've been doing what I call nesting here lately, I hope to have everything done in a couple of weeks, this place was in need of a huge overhaul/change, I'd loove to redo my kitchen, like knock the wall down between the LR & Kitchen, but it's not possible right now(maybe later). Take care & Big hugs, xo Aunt Debbie~

Found your blog accidentally...very cute layout!! Don't give up on your dreams, Cori...I worked for 20 yrs doing things I hated just to keep my family alive...but it was worth it...hard all my dreams have come true...but money, success and a lovely home by the sea unfortunately turns out that things don't always make one happy, you still have to work at that! Your personal inner problems will always be there...but keep dreaming...working to support your family will bring the joy you seek...and don't forget to thank the Universe for the little you have now...and keep your dreams in your mind...the plan is for all to be happy...
Randomly yours, Susan
