Stay at Home Mom

The company I was working for closed it's door Wednesday morning.  I am so sad, Brooklyn actually cried when I told her.  I LOVED working there!  It was a really great experience for me.  I am now at home, catching up on cleaning and a small adjustment in the hall bath.  That will come with, before and after pictures soon.  I need to find something else that will work with the kids school schedule but so far I am at a loss.  I will be helping the owner get thins cleaned up and a few things on ebay, etc.  I am hoping to find something I can do from home.  Please keep me in your prayers that I can find something that will work for me and the family.

Another ankle injury

 Today I got a call from Brooklyn's school telling me she hurt herself and I needed to come and get her.  I kept praying ti wasn't to bad since we don't have insurance right now.  When I got their the school nurse was checking her out.  Her ankle isn't sprained it's just bruised.  What a relief!!!!  She is milking it for all it's worth but keeps telling me she's okay to go to school tomorrow.  It's slightly swollen so I wrapped it in my ace bandage and she seems to be fine.  Lucky for her my ankle is starting to not hurt enough for me to not have to wear it!  Like mother, like daughter I guess.
This weekend I finally got the storage cubes I have been wanting!

Trent got a job!  Today was his first day (he's still at work), so I ave nothing to report yet.  He is working at a place called CSRS on Perkins road.  He will be doing the same kind of work he was doing at NTB.  He seemed to like it when he was filling out paper work.  He said they are definitely more professional there!  Hopefully this can be a long term place for him and us.  Instead of the typical 90 day wait for insurance it's only 30!  Also he is so close to his dad's office he can eat lunch with him a couple of times a week.  What was nice about this job was they weren't even advertising for it yet!  A friend of his arranged the meeting and he was hired the next day!  I will be going back to working 30 hours a week and hopefully not be so exhausted all the time!

mardi Gras and Valentine's day

 This was Brooklyn's finished float for her school Mardi Gras parade.  She did everything by herself but the wheels.  She had a great time making it. 

For Valentines days we only go the girls something small.  We usually get each other a card or something but this year we put everything on hold, due to the circumstances.  The girls loved their hearts and spent the afternoon making each other valentines!
