1:00am Updates That May Not Make Sense

It's 1:00am and I'm still awake. Aubrey has a birthday party to go to at 10:00am tomorrow...err... today! Hopefully I can find the energy to roll out of bed, get myself and the girls clean, and be at the party at 10:00.

I spent much of the morning working on medical bills. Bailey isn't even 2 years old yet and she's had insurance through 3 different companies, which has made for some confusion. So, because of the confusion I've received several late notices. Some of those are from doctors I haven't even heard of. Oh well.

Florida won! Isn't that great? So, that means we have a happy home. I knew this game would be challenging, and I wasn't looking forward to game night, but it wasn't bad at all. Keith had a few moments of yelling and screaming, but who didn't?

I'm back in school. This term began on Wednesday. I was concerned that money would be too tight for me to return this term, but we worked it out. Thankfully, I'm able to use the same book from last term, I just had to get another lab book. I'm also only taking one class which will make things easier for me. It was really difficult last term taking two classes and working anywhere between 50-60 hours.

Work is going okay. I thought I had an opportunity to get closer to home, but that fell through. I know it will happen when the time is right, but it just isn't happening quick enough. I'd love to just be 5-10 minutes from home. Then, I could probably spend more time at work and show up there throughout the night to check on my employees without the dread of the long drive.

Aubrey and Bailey are both doing very well. Aubrey was coughing some this week, but it never seemed to bother her. Bailey has been staph free for a few weeks. Isn't that exciting! We've had a few issues with Aubrey and her desire to talk back. She refuses to do anything we tell her and she talks to us like she's a teenager. She's only 3!

Keith is doing okay. He'll be having his wisdom teeth removed on Monday. I'm sure he won't be feeling well after that. I had such a difficult time when I had mine removed many many years ago. The company he works for laid off several marketing employees and engineers. One of which was from his office. That leaves him as the only engineer in his office, so I'm hoping that means job security. These people are more victims of our economy. I remember a year ago when I was laid off. It was so difficult having to start over. I found it impossible to find a replacement job with the same position I held and my salary was also cut in half. I couldn't imagine having to find one now.

Well, I'm going finish watching Squid Invasion.

Sounds like everything is going well, I hope Keith does ok with his teeth. It wasn't TOO horrible for me, but I've heard crazy stories! Let us know how he does!
