I'm Outa Here

So if you have not heard yet, I'm gonna work with my brothers in albekirkie. I will help Kirk do whatever needs to be done. This should be temporary until I can find a permanent job in the finance world.
I am gonna work one more week here and then head up there to work. I will still come back on the weekends to see my family though. I will miss them while I am gone, but I need to make money to pay out bills.
I hope they both know how much me and my family appreciate the chance to make some money. It really sucks to make nothing every week and wonder what bills I can afford to pay. Another thing that sucks is to lose my house. We sure thought this was where we would retire. I guess you never know what is planned from the Lord.
We hope to find a house that we can rent that will not cost too much and get settled before school starts.
Went to Jon's game today and they got beat by the first place team. They figured that would happen since the last time they played they lost 25-1.
So that's the story of my life for now, c-ya.

Almost the Weekend

WooHoo its Thursday, that means its almost the weekend.

To update on Alex, he came home on tuesday and he is doing much better. He is running around like his crazy old self. He gets to do a breathing treatment every 6 hours and fights every minute of it. He has an appt with his doc on friday, so we will know more then.

We went to the Temple today and I had this thought that we were gonna be the witness couple. Well it was almost time to go so I thought we were clear when out of nowhere Michelle made eye contact with the Brother conducting. He got up and walked over and Bam, what do ya know, witness couple. It didnt help the nerves that the room was very hot. And then the old man sitting next ot me starts chewing hard candy right in the middle of it. I wanted to lean over and tell him lunch time is later, jeesh.

As for as the job hunt goes, still looking for one. I will keep posting until one finally thinks I'm cool enough for them. Not this crap of..."you were a very strong candidate but, we found someone just a little better than you. Keep applying though, something might come up again." Whatever, just so I can get beat by someone who knows someone who knows someone.

The Hospital and Phnemonia

Alex started running a fever on thurs evening and we thought it was another ear infection. We figured he wasgoing to get tubes on tues so it wouldnt be a big deal. But by Saturday he still had a fever and started breathing with very short breaths. On Sun morning we woke up and he had a temo of 103 so we caled the Doctor. He told us to take him to the ER and have him checked out.
Once at the ER, I met a Doctor Stone who used to work with Dad in the ER. I told him and he said we were in good hands. So they took an x-ray and found fluid in his lungs. Man I felt like crappiest parent of the year. I know we couldnt have known, but I'm still aloud to feel like crap. The poor kid has phenomia. The doctor first said it sounded like he was breathing like it hurt. Apparently it does.
SO he is admitted at the hospital and we will see how he respondsd to the treatments. He does not like the breathing treatment cause the mask bothers him. He also hates the IV and wants it out. I dont blame him though, I would find that annoying too.
So our Sunday consisted of sitting at the hopistal all day. Poor Michelle has to stay with him there over night. I will go on monday to help her however she needs it though. Well I need to get to Bed, Chow.

Alex after his IV was put in.

The shadow on the left or in his right lung is fluid.

His dinosaur breathing mask, he is getting a breathing treatment every 4 hours. He does not like the mask.

Holding his Monsters Inc Movie that he was watching in the ER.

Alex and me sitting in his hospital bed.

The Inteview and Another One

Well, my interview went really well. I got in the interview room and 2 people were there to interview me. The man sat in his chair and immediately leaned all the way back in his chair. I was like ALRIGHT this dude is chilling out. That definately set the tone a little easier, but I still did not let my guard down. They asked typical questions and told me they should make adecision for a 2nd interview by next wed. So I left without any assessment tests.

On my way home I get a call from a long distant number. I usually dont answer because of the usuall answers. But I decided to answer it. It was the recruiter from my phne interview asking how my interview was. I told it went well and she says, well it went so well they to have me back in on tues. So I have another interview on tues at 10am and I am supposed to do the assessments then.

I am excited and I feel like I should be able to get this job. It probably doesnt start until the begining of June, but that will be ok.

On another note, we might have found a house to rent in the big QC. Its close to Rittenhouse and Ellsworth. It is in the villages at QC. We will look at it on Mon so I will let ya'll know.

A 2nd Interview

Yeehaw!!! I had my phone interview today and I felt it went really well. I studied the company and also some accounting books. I was comfortable answering the questions she asked and I felt very positive about it.

Then I called back a guy who wanted to meet me tonight in a so called job fair. I found out that he was with Primerica so I told him to take the highway.

So, Michelle and I went looking for houses for rent to see what was out there. We found that there are not many of signs posted for the rentals. We will do more looking later, but back to the 2nd interview part.

When we got home 2 hours later, there was a message to call back the girl who interviewed me. I thought it was awfully fast so they must not like me. Yeah right, I got a 2nd interview on Friday at 10am. Woohoo!!!! I am nervous though because it is gonna have an assessment test and should last about 2.5 hours. I'm gonna be there forever. So, now I have gone from really excited to really nervous.

I just want to thank everyone for their prayers, I couldn't of done without you. Here's to more prayers on Friday.

Good news, Bad News.

The good news -
  • I received a phone call to schedule a phone interview on Tues with a company called CB Richard Ellis. They have an entry level accounting coordinator position open. So, any prayers from you all would be appreciated.

The Bad News -

  • We talked to our mortgage company and was told they would only work with us if we could keep making our current payments soon. Otherwise we have to move. So we have to move. We will be finishing the house repairs over the next week so we can try to sell and get all of the value that our house is worth. They said to list it at market value and once we have a buyer they will work with them on the short sell. Hopefully we wont lose too much in the sell and have to pay it back. This is unfortunate for us because we wanted to retire in this house. And now we have to pull the kids from their friends and ward. We would like to find something at least in the same school and maybe the same ward.

Hopefully you are having a better day.
