Another week

Well, the retreat was...AWESOME! I missed my girl but it was nice to get away and have someone else cook for you!!! I got a ton of work done and am almost done with 2008. I am so thankful for my friend Jaime and the crops and retreats she holds. The last two years of knowing her have been great. I got a ton of scrapping done AND I have met some wonderful and sweet people. They are pretty much my closest friends even though we don't see each other enough!!

Kendall had a rough week at school behavior wise. I don't know what is going on, but she had a hard time listening. I sure hope she can fix it next week. I don't like having to get on her.
We had girl scouts and added a new member, Hope. She had registered for scouts but never picked up by a troop. As soon as I found out about that I snatched her up! She is Kendall's friend in her class so we already knew her. It went well and the girls earned a petal.

We are in the midst of cookie sales! My girl is a SUPER cookie seller! She LOVES it! This makes me SO happy since I was also a super seller :) They just went on sale on the 8th and we are just shy of 100 packages!!!!!

Chris got a JOB today!!!!! YAY! He was so happy! It is at a great company in the transportation industry called Maersk. They are a Danish company and are supposed to be very good to their people. They have a gym, a cafe, and a massage therapist from what I hear! He starts on the 24th!

As for me, I have some leads, but nothing concrete. I have a phone interview tomorrow. An interview Tuesday and two more that I am waiting to hear back on!! I am praying every day that God puts me in the right place. I know he has a plan for me so I am trying to remember that and give my stress over to him and trust in my faith that he will lead me in the right direction.

I had been running and training for a half-marathon. When I did not make the race (there was a lottery), I gave up. BUT, I have been really wanting to get back into it. I have also been wanting to do a triathlon BAD! Even more than the half. I found one super close to me and it is all women. I have been thinking about doing it. A friend from high school is doing it and I asked my friend Jaime if she wanted to. She wasn't sure but today emailed me that there is one at our gym that she wants to do! It is all indoor and not distance based but time based. It is early March so we can get our feet wet and then train for the distance based one!

SO EXCITED! Now I just need to get my gym membership reinstated so I can practice my swimming!!!!!


Kendall is also signing up for SOFTBALL!! Another one of my fav things. She has tryouts next Saturday so that is something I am REALLY looking forward to.

I will keep you posted on the outcome of all the above events :)
