The Happenings of Life

So lately things have been a little stressful and hectic around here. As some of you know I have been doing temp work for Walmart since last July, well now my assignments are up and I have been looking for full time work for about 2 months now. I have had probably 8 interviews, and no job offers. It is stressful and depressing. This coming week, I do have a second job interview with Arvest Mortgage company. Charlie works for Arvest in a bank, he is a deposit counselor and he loves Arvest. So hopefully they will love me and I can have a job. I only have 2 weeks left of mine, so we are praying that I will get a job before then. Also I have a job interview for a teller position at Arvest this coming week, so please pray for me to get a full time job, time is running out FAST. I've been at this for over 10 weeks now. Finding a job is one of the hardest things to do, especially now days. So that is what I've been up to.

Charlie is doing great at his job, he told me he has opened cd's for people with thousands, I think like $100,000 or more and a couple this week. Arvest gives incentive pay and those accounts really bring in the money! We like that. Also, we get to see Charlie earlier in the evenings most evenings now that he has this job and not a teller, so we love that too!

Nate is getting so big! Some of his favorite new words are: No (who would have thought) I love, (he doesn't know how to say "you" yet, that puppy and alot more. He is now telling Tangent, the dog, "no" if he doesn't like him doing something. He also does this to mommy and daddy if they touch the ottoman, Nate has claimed that as his seat. In the pictures, you will see Nate eating. We have discovered that he LOVES sour cream. So he is eating Empanadas and sour cream in the one pictures. I tried to get him with a hat on, but he hates hats. It has been over 90 degrees for 2 weeks here, today it is only 84 degrees and we are thankful. Nate has been mad because I won't let him go outside, but it is just TOO HOT! I thought I moved out of the Sunshine State, maybe I took it with me.

Memorial Weekend

Grandpa and Nate

So as you can tell, I am not very good at blogging anymore. I just hate making time for it b/c I feel there isn't much time for making time. Anyway...For Memorial weekend we went to St. Louis with my parents and my sister Vicky's family. It was a fun weekend. We went to the temple, zoo, science center and an art museum that the kids didn't like b/c you couldn't touch anything. Nate loved the zoo. He liked the hippo's, there was a big hippo that liked the attention so he would go into the water and put his HUGE face against the glass where the kids were. I thought it was pretty awesome too. Then we went to the penguin house, which stunk really bad so I walked really fast through it and waited on the outside. Charlie and Nate stayed in there, it was FREEZING in there by the way, and Nate loved it. They watch the penguins jump and splash and swim and have a great time. We also watched some bears wrestling, that was pretty neat too. I am not very good at remembering to take pictures, sorry. So here is what I have. Below are the bears wrestling and the girls were trying to see the hippo in the tank. You can't see the hippo very well in the picture, but it was big.
