I'm it!

Well I am a little late on this because I have been slacking on this blog business but I have been tagged by Jen.

Here are the rules:
Link the person who tagged you
Mention the rules on your blog
Tell about 6 quirks of yours
Tag 6 fellow bloggers of yours to do the same
Leave a comment to let them know

Here is how it goes:
1. I have to set my alarm for a number that does not end in 5 or 0
2. I cry over everthing
3. I always side with the underdog
4. I don't like animals
5. I rub my toes together
6. I hate to be touched when I am sleeping

I am not going to tag anyone only because most of you have been tagged already!

Career Switch

I am so tired of my job, first of all the agency I work for is so micromanaged. I mean completely overboard and annoying. We can not move furniture in our office around without getting permission, we are limited to a very regulated 30 min lunch breakin which we are required to hunt down a supervisor to tell them if we want to leave the building. We get monthly reviews in which our supervisor has to find at least one negative or the director won't accept them. So you bust your ass all month long and then you get a review with something stupid written on it. It totally brings down the moral, 90% of the time I don't even read them anymore. It is just wasted energy because then I get my panties in a bunch and have to rebuttle it, which really means nothing because utimately they don't care.

All that grumbling brings me to my point. I want a new job, I am really considering switching to teaching. I want to be a positive influence in little ones lives. I love watching the wheels turn on my boys when they are learning something and I think it would be rewarding to be a part of that in other childrens lives. I do hear teachers talk about how stressful it is so I know it isn't just a walk in the park with a great vacation schedule but I think I would be good at it and I would enjoy it.

Stay tuned to see what the ultimate decision is, until then I will be a bitter betty at work!

As you may have guessed looking around the place I am a huge Obama Supporter. I volunteer at the local campain office, I am a precinct captain for my voting district and I recently joined our local democratic committee. Last week we had a dinner to raise money. It was a really good time, my husband went along to so it was a great night without the kids. Here we are after a couple of beers to loosen up.

I really think that Keith and I need to make more of an effort to go on dates. It was so much fun just hanging out with him. We had good food, good conversation and a good time. I miss that.

In other news I went to the doctor to talk about coming off my happy pills. I think they are the cause for my ridiculous weight gain. Instead the doctor increased my dose. He was very concerned that I would just stop taking them and asked me to call him if I decided to do that. Really made me feel like I have a first class ticket on the wacky express. I am so over trying all these solutions for my issues. Maybe I really am just a grouchy, mean person and I just need to learn to adjust myself. I don't know it is just exhausting to constantly think about it and doubt your every decision. I guess I might need more help and I have to stay committed to making a better me. It just gets overwhelming at times that I can't deal with my life.

Wow that turned into a rather depressing little rant, sorry about that. Tomorrow I am meeting some friends at the beach so I will have sunshine and rainbow stories for you then!

School Days

Kye and Mommy survived the first couple of days of school. It was pretty hard on Mommy seeing her baby go to school but I am not going to make this important time about me, Kye is the star here. He is doing really well because let's face it Kye is a Mama's Boy (which I love so much). He is fitting in well with his class though. He plays with the other kids and LOVES the projects. Everytime I pick him up he yells I got a present for you and grabs his projects out of his cubby.

The first day of school I had to go to work first and Keith dropped him off. I asked him to take pictures and this is all I got.

Here is a picture of Kastan on his first day of school, I don't think I really did a very good job either but well it is funner to point out Keith's attempts at photographing our kids lives.

Back In The Saddle

Well I have been MIA lately and I really missed blogging. I have been so busy with so much stuff at home and I have been volunteering a lot for the local Campagin for Change office. Busy, busy girl I am.

Kastan started second grade this week. Man I am so proud of my son. He started a new school with such confidence it just made my heart swell. He didn't know anyone in his class but he walked right in like he owned the place. He even let me know that I didn't need to walk him in so I pulled up and he jumped right out ready to go. I pray he is always this confident and self assured. My little man is growing up!

Kye is starting preschool/daycare tomorrow. He has already told me he is not esiteded (excited) and he is not going to wisten (listen) to his teacher. So we will see how this big adventure goes tomorrow. He does like the fact that he gets his own backpack. So that is a step in the right direction................stay tuned!
