So much to do, so little time.

Lately it has felt like I have no time to get stuff done that I need to. I have not got used to working a normal schedule yet. I used to be free and get home around 11am. Then i had the entire day to get stuff done. Now I get home at 4 and with all the kids stuff, Jon's football, scouts and stuff it feels like there isn't enough time in the day. I am going to start working an hour earlier this week, so I should be home by 3 now.

As far the the old house goes, we only have a few small loads of junk to get out of the garage and big hunk of metal to get over here. I was kind of funny cuz I needed a battery for the Chevelle so I went to checker to get one. I told the guy what kind of car it was and he said, ooooh, a classic. If only he could see it, lol.

My interview with Banner went really good. My inside connections said good things about me so I hope that goes in my favor. I was able to throw around some other names of people I know there. I should hear by Friday if I get it.

Fortune cookies are awesome!!!!
I got a fortune cookie and my fortune said," Success and wealth are in your future." And the other one sad,"Happiness is around the next corner, wealth down the street." So I guess things are headed for the turn around.

Then there is my cell phone. My phone decided that it did not want to work anymore so the battery port broke. I went to plug it in and the charging port pull out of my phone. So now I don't have a phone that works. The worst part is I pay for a warranty with t-mobile and they have a $125 replacement fee for my phone. What the crud is a warranty for if you still have to pay to replace the phone. What a joke. So now I am trying to locate an inexpensive t-mobile phone till I can switch carriers.

So that is the recent going ons with me. I try to post as much as possible, but it seems like once a week is about all I can do for now. C-YA

I'mmmmmm Baaaaaaccckkkk

I am back. Yep, I was sick of logging on just like all of you. I had some jerks sending me emails and posting on my blog and decided to shut it off for a time. But i have been so busy I havent had time to blog anyways.

The Job:
I am working a temp job for US Foods that at the current time might become permanent soon. They are impressed by how quick I learn the systems. they told me I am doing better tham some of their full time adjusters. So I have been sortof promoted for the third time in 8 weeks to be trained as a financial analyst. Thats right, my education is finally starting to pay off.

The interviews:
I am still applying for jobs to hopefully get a better paying job or some leverage with the temp job. I am waiting to hear back from Scottsdale Healthcare, really would like that one. And I have a job interview with Banner Health Surgery Centers on the 20th. I have an inside connection there that I am going to talk to Monday to see if he will put in a good word for me.

I like our new ward. It is small, but that is fun because we will get to know everyone a little easier. I have already been given a calling in the ward and no records yet. The Bishop wanted to talk to us on Sunday and brought us all in his office. Then on Thurs, his councellor called to come visit us. We thought he just wanted to meet with us, and he said he did but he had some other business. He said the Bishop had a feeling about me and wanted me to be in The Young Men program. So I am being called back to YM as the 1st counselor in the Presidency. At least I will be once they have our records. I am really excited to be back in YM. I have worked with the Deacons for 3.5 years and loved it. When I was released it did not feel like a burden lifted off me, it felt more like my family was being taken away. I really loved my deacons quorum. They taught me sometimes more than I taught them. It will be a little different working with the Teachers, but I look forward to the new challenge and I get to be with Jon again.

The House:
Love it, hate it. I love our house, it is nice and big, lots of room for the kids to play. Hate leaving the old ward, the pool, and the RV gate. I have nowhere to park my Chevelle, but Jon will be driving it in a year anyways.

We are excited for the chance to meet new people and make new friends. Love having good freeway access. Hope you enjoed reading this long post. I will try to blog more now that life is starting to calm down again.
