Cool Things

I know I said I was going to bed but not before I show you a site and some items I found on it that i want lol.
Check out the great products at World Wide Fred. Here's a few of my favorites.

How cute is this

I am always saying this
This would make it so much easier
whose kid doesn't love to lick the spoon?
Had the hubby in mind for this one and his love for pizza

Finally I have a job

I got the call today...I start tomorrow. I am so excited. I have been unemployed for 6 months. After what seems like a million resumes sent and a about a dozen interviews I finally landed the job I wanted. I had been offered a couple previously but they just were not what I was looking for. I wanted a job that I knew I could grow in and that was in the field I had experience in. I am going to be learning some new things and it is not going to be easy. Not only will I be in online college but I will be studying for work to pass a test. The starting pay is great and I will have benefits starting from day one. I had the interview about three weeks ago right at the time I was going to take a job with another company. I was confident in the interview. They told me a couple of days later I was their #1 candidate, I just had to wait for HR to call me and than getting the background check etc. I am excited but nervous at the same time. I guess it is always that way with a new job, Not really knowing what to expect and not sure how the people are. I hope Troy is up to running the kids around. I think he will do what it takes to help me because I can say the last six months as sucked. I am so sick of worrying how we are going to make all the bills and we were not able to do anything fun with the kids this summer.

Well I am off. Need to try and get myself on a better sleep schedule. 2 am is just not going to cut it anymore.

Also any of you smart people out there. As you can see I am not the worlds best writer. I would say I suck. I have a huge essay to write for school. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. My topic is why I think it is better to buy a home vs. renting. Give me your thoughts while your at it. Thanks:)

Oh one more thing. I rocked the kitchen today. I made apple oatmeal cinnamon cookies , applecrisp and stuffed peppers. We planted a apple tree five or six years ago and this was the first year it produced anything worth while. Did not want to see any of them go to waste. I still have about 10 more so it looks like I will be making more cookies this weekend. I am going to look for something a little differnt than I already did.
The peppers also came from the garden and wow did they come out yummy. I told Troy that was all my domestication for the year lol. Night all

I do

On Friday, I remarried my best friend. We had a very small, very relaxed wedding with just us and the kids. I did not tell anyone but my closet friends that we were even planning on doing it. Simply because I know everyone has thier opionisn about our relationship. Quite frankly I did not want to hear anything negative. I wanted to do what I wanted to make me happy. I did get one negative thing of course from my mother. She text me and said "Did you do it yet, cause if not its not to late to change your mind". I told her yes we just had  and I have not heard from her since. The relationship with my mother and I to be  honest is not a simple one. Maybe one day I will forgive and forget the past. The weekend has been nice, Troy and I have just been relaxing at home. We are planning a short honey moon after I start working and things are a little better for us financially. I got both of my assignements for school done today. I knew that going back to school was not going to be easy, but its getting really hard and I am doubting my abiltity to keep up. So far  my grades are good but I can tell that is going to change in the next couple of weeks.

The granddaughter is spending the night, I just gave her a bath and she is already passed out. My wonderful daughter made us dinner. Summer spaghetti and Italian bread and for desert she made strawberry cupcakes and wow , was that good. She is even in the kitchen cleaning up. I wonder what she wants. She has already given me the bad news a couple of weeks ago, I can now handle anything. Well I off to try and read some for school. I hope everyone has a great Labor Day.
