Busy Busy

2011-07-21 11.35.43

I’ve been working a lot, but I thought I’d take a few minutes to update. I love working at Target! Except that I spend WAY more money there than I used to ; )

Korbin has been doing amazing in preschool. His teacher said she thinks he’s ready for kindergarten already! He can identify all of the letters & numbers & can write almost all of them too!

Jace is growing up so fast. Talking all the time, asking why & singing. She loves watching Dora & Bubble Guppies.

We found out last month that Jacob will be going to Camp Casey, Korea for a year in May. I have a feeling that this is going to be harder than deployment because the kids are older now & will understand that daddy is gone.

My parents are coming for Christmas since we won’t make it back to AZ until April. I’m so happy that they will be here! I actually finished Christmas shopping about a week ago! I’m waiting to wrap everything until a few days before so the kids don’t get into the presents.

Return to Blogger:: Step 2


Second Step:: Post an actual blog!

So much has happened in the past 14 months, but I’ll just highlight it with the major events. Jacob came home from Iraq in March, Jace turned 1, Korbin turned 4, we bought a house!, we got a puppy, I got a job. Life has been pretty busy between moving, work, preschool & going to the gym. Korbin loves preschool! He goes twice a week for 4 hours each day. Jace has been very clingy lately & doesn’t want to leave my side, even to go see Daddy. She’s getting better with it now that I’m working. It’s incredible how much she’s grown since my last post! Jacob has been working a lot of long days. He leaves at 0430 & doesn’t usually get home until 1830 (6:30pm). Right now he is sitting at the other end of the couch with strep (I’m staying as far away from him as possible so I don’t get it). I just started working at Target on Oct. 27th & I love it. Cashiering is actually pretty fun, I love getting to see what other people are buying & talking to adults instead of tiny children all day! Plus, I get a 10 percent discount! WOO! I have been trying really hard to get to the gym at least 4 times a week, sometimes it doesn’t happen, but I don’t get discouraged. My gym buddy is moving to Missouri in December & it’s going to be even harder to get to the gym when she leaves. She’s a big motivation for me. But I’m trying not to think of her leaving, it makes me sad. Bella, our boxer, is 6 months old now! She is very tall & can stand up to get food off of our tall kitchen table. She is such a hyper puppy! Always playing & jumping like a little deer, then crashing for a 2 hour nap. We are also doggy-sitting 2 basset hounds for our friends who are on vacation before they move to Hawaii. 3 dogs in the house can get very messy, especially with the mud outside. Molly & Trixie are very good, fat, lazy dogs (flazy, as Jessica says). I have learned that basset hounds whine a lot, drink a lot & eat a lot. Our new house is amazing! My favorite part is our 5 piece bathroom with a HUGE walk-in closet! The kids have the entire loft upstairs to use as a playroom. And, **BONUS**, our neighbors are our best friends, the Carters! Well, I think that’s all for today. I don’t think there is a Step 3 coming up, but here’s hoping I can keep this updated a lot better than before. Maybe if I stick a bookmark right at the top center of my browser I’ll remember to blog more often.
