I finally did it...free at last, kinda

So, after a few friendly reminders from Kristi and Julia today that I have been slack on my blog...here I am again.

The past week has been fun. First thing monday morning, after disscussing it with Chad of course, I quit my job!!!! I am so happy about it too. However I wish it could have went a little differently. I told my boss that I had applied for another job with the Dept of Natural Resources as an HR assistant (that I totally want by the way!) I told him it pays way more money and that I just wanted to give him advanced notice in case I get the job. I thought it was all pretty clear that I wanted to leave, but he asked me to reconsider...if i dont get the other job. So if i dont get the other job I am going to have to quit all over again. But I did it once so I can do it again. However, this past week has been pretty great! Since they dont want me to leave they have been doing my work for me, trying to suck up i guess. It was awesome. But I am leaving anyway.

Then on Monday night...a buch of us went to the movies. I dont know why but I love going as a big group, it's so much fun! Lets see..there was me and Chad, Julia and Josh, Meaghan and Jason, Whitney and Dan, and Katrina. We went to see Oceans 13 which I would recommend to everyone. I enjoyed myself. After the movie we chatted a bit at second cup, then all went our seperate ways. It was a good family home evening.

The rest of the week was...kinda uneventful but I did buy some roses that I found at superstore. I had to buy them for myself cause Chad never does stuff like that, but they were too cool...here is a picture.

Saturday I saw Kristi. Tanya and Karlee put on a good baby shower for her. She got a ton of stuff. It will be very exciting to see what their little man looks like. Krisit you will have to come visit again after he is born.

Here is Kristi opening presents.





It was a good time to soialize as well. And time for Julia to soak up all the babies.
Julia has to be next to have a baby...she has the magic touch. Morgan falls asleep everytime she is with Julia...she is so cute.




Not a whole lot else happened this week...but i did take a cute picture of Chad before bed one night. He looks so cozy!




Just one more thing....I just wanted to say to Elysa...you need to start a blog or at least facebook, I know you are a busy mother of 2, but I need to see more Eva and Emily pictures, and where else is better than on a blog!

Have a good week every one!

awesome blog! wicked pictures ('cept for the one with me and morgan, i told you not to put me in it!).
i am semi jealous of your roses, i think i might have to go buy some myself. as for your job, hopefully you'll hear from them this week.
maybe we should do something for family home evening again. something cheap tho, i am dirt poor, and we're going to dinner for june b-days this week, so remember that when planning finances, lol.
good times last night, too bad we forgot our cameras!

I love those roses they are so cool!!! Thank you for all of you support, what you said about when your uncle died really helped. I'm glad to know the feeling is normal. I'm also sorry to hear about your uncle. Death is such a tragic tale. I'm so glad we have the plan of salvation. Glad things are going so well for you! I really hope you get the job. GOOD LUCK! You derserve it!
