Updates on us!

So, I'm using my brother's computer now and so I am able to download all of my pics! YAY! So, here are a few things that have been going on at the Liddell household.

#1 We got two new puppies...I don't know what we were thinking. They are cute, but a lot of work! We love them, though.

#2 My husband fixed our dryer.

#3 I was in Utah for Bonnie and Brady's wedding!

#4 I went back to being blonde...today! (This is all for you Carianne) As much as I miss Carianne and know that I could never replace her, I have finally found, after about a year and a half, somebody who I might be able to live with doing my hair for a while. She's no Carianne (maybe I'm just biased because Carianne did my hair for about 6 years, but still). I have to say I am pretty happy with it. I miss you Carianne!

Well, I'm sure that there's a lot more that's been going on, but this is call I can think of right now. Hope you enjoy!

Twilight Saga

Okay, I'm a big nerd. I must first apologize to my husband for this last week. I have been so consumed with the Twilight series by Stephenie Meyer that I haven't really done anything around the house. He's pretty much had to fend for himself. I haven't cleaned, I haven't cooked dinner (I have made him lunches in the morning, just to give myself some credit) and I haven't done any laundry. All of my free time between school and work (and sometimes at work) have been totally consumed with reading these books. I am obsessed! The weird part is that I DO NOT read. All though, I am going to start now. I've decided it's fun! It's kind of funny that I complained about having to wait at the airport because that's when I bought the book. I was sort of annoyed afterward because I didn't even read it while I was there (I decided watching movies on my computer would be a better way to spend my time) but I saw it sitting on my counter last week and decided that I really should read it since I spent the money on it. And I just assumed that it had to be good because so many people have dedicated spots to Twilight on their blogs. So, in about the span of a week, I read all 4 books, which I might add, have about 500-700 pages each! I am so proud of myself. Anyway, that's my newest excuse for being such a slacker at blogging.

I did get my consequence though now. I do have a TON of cleaning to do which includes probably 5 loads of laundry. I hate it when I do that to myself. Oh well, Twilight was worth it! I can't wait until the movie comes out, all though I am a little skeptical about it not being as good as the book, since that's usually the case, but oh well!

Guess what I got...


Well, I put my two weeks in on Tuesday because I decided that it was ridiculous that I wasn't making hardly any money, and it was a waste of time and gas to drive 30 minutes to make $2.13 an hour...so, I promised Josh that I would find another good job, quickly! I was really nervous because it usually takes me a while to find a good job, unless I know someone.

If you remember, I put up a post a little bit ago about being a nanny for a lady, well needless to say, I didn't get it. Bummer! But it actually worked out well. See, with that job, I would have had to do all of the lady's cleaning (from laundry down to scrubbing the toilets) everyday. That's really not that bad, but it's always a lot more fun to make the same amount of money doing a lot less, right? Well, good news! That's how it's worked out for me.

Two days ago, before I went to bed, I decided to check Craig's List for job opportunities as a last minute thing. I applied to one lady's post and then turned off my computer. Well, I forgot that I was waiting for an e-mail from a girl at school, so I turned my computer back on and checked my email and I already had a response back from the lady that I had responded to on Craig's List. She asked me if I would like to meet with her on Thursday (yesterday) @ 2:30 for an interview. I wrote her back right away and said yes!

So, I met with her yesterday, and I absolutely love her and her family. She has four kids, but all I'm really there to do is make sure when the kids get home from school that they do their homework before they do anything else and then to make sure they get their chores done. After that, I just take them to their after school practices for soccer, cheer and wrestling and that's basically it. There's no cleaning involved! And the best part is...if the kids are out of school for a holiday or something like that, the mom takes off of work, so I don't have to go into work...and she's going to pay me for all of the hoidays! She will also reimburse me for all of the gas expenses!

I really hit the jackpot! I am so very thankful for answered prayers and for friends and family that really care! This is exactly what I was looking for. I was really bummed when I didn't get the other job, but little did I know that I had a great thing coming! Now I can go to all of the church activities, which I've never really been able to do since I was in high school!

This also helps me a little bit with my calling. I think I did a post a little bit ago about how I was in Nursery and I was a little bummed because I wanted to have time to meet people in relief society before I got stuck for two hours all by myself. But, that worked out too! Such little faith I have sometimes, I know!

Anyway, I just thought you all should know that I will no longer look like I am inactive during the week, and only active on Sundays! That's so exciting. Yay, here come friends! (Don't worry Camie and Juan, you'll never be replaced! We're so excited to see you!)
