What a week!

So it's been almost a week since I blogged. I've been busy! In that time, I've been to Mobile, Biloxi and back home, and in a way, I went to New Orleans too. I've finished a mini album, I've done more layouts that I can count, ok not really - but several, and finished Cole's cute little banner for his play room! And finished my application for the state - so I can get a job!

So we went to Mobile to get Jason's car. It broke down the day before we moved! So we have it back now. We stayed with my brother-in-law and his family! We just happened to be there on the weekend of my sister-in-laws birthday, so it was nice to get to do the birthday dinner with everyone. We stuck to our diet, pretty much, the whole time we were gone! That's a great thing. We spent the last night away in Biloxi. My parents were there for three nights and we just wanted to go at least one night. We stayed at one casino we've stayed at before - we were checking in and the hotel girl said oh you are going to love me. For some reason we got upgraded to a VIP suite. This sounds like we are big spenders, high rollers - we SO aren't!! But we'll still take the room like we are - that's how we roll! :) SO the room was huge, really nice. We had a good stay - slept in the giant wonderfully perfect bed!! Very Nice!

All my scrapping projects have really been fun. My mini book was fun - I forget my camera on the 4th though and took photos just with my camera phone. They were ok - but not what I really wanted. I didn't get a single picture of me, Jason and Cole together. I get this every year, in our 4th shirts, but not this year. I'm still a but grumpy about that!!! I'm in a circle journal group over at SIStv and have worked on those pages this week - I'm almost done. I think I have 6 sets of pages done! It's really been fun. I've got a few other projects I want to get underway but just haven't yet! Maybe this weekend.

I've submitted my application for jobs with the state. So please say a little prayer that I find a job quickly and easily. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I'm going to start calling tomorrow and making inquiries! And I hope I find something in the lower grades - I would love Kindergarten. I've said many times that it's hard and I'm not sure if I could do it - but it's really where I think I want to be. I'll take anything, but after spending time in Cole's kindergarten class and one of the other classes at his school, I just love what has to be taught and the way you get to teach it. It's not so structured at that point. You have room to make it fun and that's what I really want to do. Have fun with the kids. I want them to learn without realizing they are learning! I just can't wait to have a job and have a classroom!!! And a paycheck would really be nice too!

Cole is doing great! We're on day 35 of growth hormone therapy. I'm not sure if he's grown yet - but he's gotten much better at taking his shot. He doesn't fuss too much anymore and just squinches his eyes up and takes it. I'm so proud of him. We've been struggling with lots of things with him - he is such a picky eater, and we can't get him to try new stuff. He's also been waking up in the middle of the night and getting in our bed - every night for over 6 months. I'm not sure why - but he's still doing it. Finally I just put a stool at the bottom of the bed so he could climb up without waking me. Silly me - what was I thinking?? We've talked to him the last two nights about how he's a big boy and needs to stay in his bed all night. If he wakes up, try to go back to sleep first and if you can't come get us, and we'll go back to the bed with him. Well the last two nights, he's stayed in his bed until 8 am - instead of 4am!!! So YEAH - so far so good. We need to break this before school starts.

Well, that's about all here. Still job hunting, still haven't unpacked everything, but still love being HOME!
