On the Road Again...

So we are leaving the "frozen" tundra of Idaho to come to the "cold" desert of Texas for Christmas. We leave here on December 17 and come back on January 3, 2009. It seems like we travel all the time! I think we have gone somewhere to someone's house every month since we got here. That is a whole freaking lot of gas. UGGHGHHH!!!! Sorry just a little frustrated there. But the good news is that we get to travel down to Texas with my brother, his lovely wife, and their darling son. Who will be about a month old by then. He is so adorable. They are so lucky and you can tell that this was THE right decision for them and their family. Its hard not to be jealous sometimes. They have their life all together and everything is going great for them. Oh well, life is hard and then we die.  Oh well. Well I am really looking forward to spending time with our different families. I am SOOOO looking forward to it. Maybe I can spend one on one time with my sisters. That would be way fun! I will see you guys soon!

WHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy! I finally have a job! I am a cashier/work the front at Arctic Circle. I have worked there for 3 weeks now and it is bringing money in. I make $6.55 an hour, which isn't much and isn't going to be enough for rent plus gas, electric, gas for the car, groceries, care credit payment, and more. But the fact that I finally have a job is ecstatic! It feels good to know that I am no longer failing my family because I couldn't provide for them. I just love the way that feels. It feels good to work again. To be able to do something during the day and feel useful that I am actually doing something! So nice. Well, school gets out soon for Steve and I graduate on the December 6th. Which is nice because then I can start working on and getting my externship completed. Steve is doing GREAT in school. He is making excellent grades. I am learning to love life. Life is what happens when you make plans and they go otherwise. I love my hubby and am so grateful for everything that he does for me. He is the best husband that I could ever ask for. Mu-wah! I love you honey!
