Jordan lost her 4th tooth

We are growing her bangs out and they are at the ackward stage now where they get in her eyes.

Jordan lost her 4th tooth today. It's one of her top ones. It's been VERY loose for a couple days. She had a birthday party to go to today and I tried to get her to wiggle it out before she went but she wouldn't do it. Well, sure enough she lost it at the party while she was eatting a cupcake! Her other top one is loose too and one on the bottom was loose but now it's kind of scrunched between two others so it's not as loose now.

A Marriott Is Hiring!

The Courtyard by Marriott in Richland, WA is hiring. I sent my app. and resume into them. I'm going to call them today to follow up on it. It would be GREAT if I could stay with the same company. Keep me in your prayers

Job Applications

I've been busy putting in job apps. online. So far I have applied at:
Rite Aid (worked at the one in Bainbridge Island before moving to NE)
Savers/Value Village
Kindercare (2 different sites)
Red Robin
Edward Jones
Petco (2 different sites--I think I would be in trouble if I got a job here. I love animals too much)

Trying to excercise daily

I'm going to try to walk each day after work. I walked a mile on Sat. but didn't get it done Sun. I did walk around the building at work on my break Sun. though. Monday I walked about 3/4 of a mile. I'm taking one of the dogs with me each morning. They are loving the walks. I just have to keep myself motivated for this. I have got to loose some weight because I can't fit into alot of my dress clothes and I have to be able to for interviews.

Moving Countdown

Jordan and I have counted on the calendar and marked off the days until we move. It's 2 months from today. I've added a counter to my blog. We are both getting very excited about going to Washington. Jim is sad because he will miss us but as soon as he gets his things done in and around this house he can get it up on the market. Hopefully it will sell fast and he can be joining us in Washington before fall.

Snow in mid-April????

You never know about the weather in Nebraska! The western and central part of the state got up to 7 inches of snow this week. This picture is from North Platte. We got wet snow here in Omaha but nothing really stuck. It's supposed to get back up near 70 this coming week. I am so looking forward to moving to Washington. :)

Productive weekend

James came down to visit this weekend. Jordan was so excited for him to be here. He helped Jim out alot while he was here. they got the car and the motorcycle washed and leaves cleaned up out of the driveway. I got leaves cleaned up out of the back yard. With what I had raked up last week and what we got done this weekend we have about 20 yard waste bags to go out with the trash this week. I have been going through all out file cabinets and paperwork and have so far shredded 3 bags of paper. I still have more to do though. I've taken 3 car loads of stuff to the thrift store to donate. We are slowly but surely getting ready to move. I've got a few boxes packed up too. We will be getting a storage unit before we put the house on the market so we can get some of the clutter out of here.

Jordan is on springbreak this week so I'm only working until 4 am instead of 6 so I can get a little sleep before she gets up each morning. We are planning to go to the zoo on Wed.

Low key birthday

I had a pretty low key birthday. I drove Jordie to school this morning, then came home and ate a little breakfast and layed down around 9:30. I got up around 12:30 and went to run some errands with Jim. When we got back I rested for just a little bit and then got up at 4 to get Jordan from the bus. We went out to the Marriott hotel for dinner tonight. I had gift checks from being associate of the month last month so it only cost us $5 for our dinner tonight. We came home and Jordan and I shared the piece of cake we had gotten to go. I got her ready for bed, watched Big Brother and now I'm just relaxing, playing with my bird and checking my emails. I guess 37 isn't that bad. :)
