What a Weekend!

Wow, it's been such a busy/exciting/topsy turvy weekend. I got a job offer (at least 2-4 weeks, possibly more) at multicare, I start tomorrow. The CLEATS tied their game on Saturday and my big girl Devan scored a goal. She also did this hilarious butt check thing but I can't even begin to describe it in any way someone would understand. We celebrated Frances' first birthday, she was such a good girl and it was so cute to see her interact with everyone. I went to my first wine tasting with Tiffany. Then we both went out with Laurie, Scott, and Kaitlynn to the haunted woods/corn maze up at Maris Farms. That was fun/scary/hilarious. Today I had to scramble around to find people to cover my shifts at starbucks, and then I hung out with CC for most of the day. We went to see Paranormal Activity...OMG it was so freaking good, scary creepy good.
That's about it for now...

Wow...Big Break!!

So, I just didn't realize that it had been over a month since I had posted. Weird isn't it how much time can fly. Tiffany turned a year older, Frances is about to be 1 year old, and Niko will be 4 at the end of the month. October is a busy month around the family. LOL
I completed by PLU grad school application and submitted it yesterday. The only thing left to do is wait for my letters of recommendation and to submit my nursing packet addendum.
Soccer refereeing is in full swing. I was supposed to referee two games today, but the second game was canceled and I still got paid. Love that. I'm on the lookout for a new job, have to find something where I can get more hours and make more money (isn't everybody?). I hate the fact that because I left my well paying job in Seattle we now have to struggle a bit more. I try to remind myself that it will all work out and everything will be ok (especially if I get into my nursing program), but sometimes in the day to day....its just too hard. I found a bookmark my sister gave me one or two birthdays ago that had a great quote on it and now I'm going to ruin it...something about worrying about your troubles will not lighten them tomorrow but will hinder the enjoyment of today. Makes sense, doesn't it.
