The only reason I'm doing this post is because I'm bored and don't feel like cleaning the kitchen. So here we go:

In the past couple of months this is whats been going down:

1- I was offered a job by my old boss. I worked as a receptionist/administrative assistant for him for a good 5 years (with a short leave of absence when we moved to Alaska). The offer was actually very timely because we have been playing with the idea of me working full-time and Nick stay home with Toby so he can focus more on his studies for his last year. I haven't told very many people about his job offer, but to make a long story short: I turned it down. It was a tough decision because those of you who know him, know he is the worlds greatest boss. Who knows though, down the road it may work out. But for now, I know in my heart I made the right decision. If you want further details: call me, email me, Facebook me.

2- Toby is slowly weaning himself from his one and only nap. It has its pro's and cons. The days he doesn't nap he sleeps in until about 8:30 or 9 and then goes to bed at around 7. Those days are nice when I have a lot of stuff planned and a nap would interfere. But when I am home all day with no car, yeah I pretty much go insane. Which leads me into my next happening....

3 - Nick sold his green Saturn aka "old reliable" so that he could have a truck. I was sad to see it go because of its fantastic gas mileage (35 MPG!) but I feel Nick deserves his truck. Especially with how hard he works. He hasn't found his truck yet, or it hasn't found him, however you want to look at it. But its been about a month since I have had no car and it sucks. We went the first two years of our marriage on one car, and it was tough but doable. But back then I wasn't a stay-at-home mom with an extremely, active toddler. Not to mention it's SUMMER and I want to be out and about enjoying the heat while I can. So yes, it's been a long 4 weeks.

4- Nick and I decided to do separate vacations this summer. No, there is not trouble in paradise. We both just needed time away where we could get in a little R & R before the crazy school year starts up again. And we've planned a ton of "stay-cations" with the T-man. So...I went to Alaska for 4.5 days and Nick went camping in Eastern Oregon with his Dad for 4.5 days. Although it was a much needed break for both of us, I think we both appreciated each other a little bit more after our time away from each other. :) Holy cow, how do single moms and military mom's do it?

5- I am ecstatic about my upcoming John Mayer concert. This is my 6th time seeing him and this time we are going with our friends Jessie and Dave. Can't wait! My family makes fun of me because I have sort of a love/hate relationship with him. I am completely infatuated with his music, but I can't stand him as a person. I cringe watching an interview with him because he is basically an ego-maniac who loves to hear himself talk. BUT...he puts on such an amazing concert. He is arguably one of the few artists who sound as good or better than their album. Pure, unbridled talent. Yeah, I'm obsessed.

6- Still nothing happening in the pregnancy department. It's only been about 6 months since I had my IUD removed so I shouldn't be too heart broken, right?

I won't lie, its disappointing. Especially since it took us only 1 month to get prego with Toby. I'm wondering if it has something to do with Mirena - the devil birth control that I will NEVER go on again. See this post for more details. Anyway, I digress. I'm seeing my doc on Monday for my wonderful annual womanly exam, so hopefully they can provide some clarity or guidance. But in the mean time, I'm just putting my trust in the Lord that it'll happen when its suppose to. It's all I can do.

That pretty much covers it. I guess I will stop procrastinating those dishes now. :)

I'm glad you didn't do the dishes. I like to hear you ramble :)

Aleta said...

I enjoyed your ramblings too :) We'll have to do lunch before school starts. I'll be out of town until Aug. 4th, but we should do it after that. And I need more details on turning down the job offer from Roy, so we definitely need to do lunch soon! :)

Jessie said...

Boo to dishes.

I enjoyed the ramblings, like the others said. You know, I'm glad to see that ramblings are enjoyable to others, because most of MY blog is pretty darn rambly.

Ugh, that transition period between nap and no nap is the worst. It is nice once you both acclimate though. Then you don't have to plan your days around naptime anymore. I do feel for you not having a car right now and probably having a grumpy little boy. Yikes.

I hope you get pregnant soon. It's a super frustrating thing to have to wait for. I always said, "Teenagers get pregnant on accident all the time! Why can't I do it on PURPOSE?!" :)

Debbie so random, but we've been trying 6 months too! It's hard being patient but hang in there and I'm sure it'll happen soon. Hopefully we'll both be complaining about being pregnant sick soon! Miss you!
