today is my b-day. i'm a big whopping 3-1. yikes!! i don't feel old enough to be in my 30's yet. and on my b-day, my little man is sick. we didn't get up with enough time to get to the 9 o'clock service at church(thank goodness!) since finn got sick & threw up all over. one minute he was fine & the next there was vomit everywhere. i yelled for dan(of course he was not up yet) to get up & help me. nothing worse than throw up everywhere, a little boy covered in it, and a dog ready to leap in there & eat it. yuck! dan got him in the tub while i cleaned everything up & got his clothes in the wash. so now he's just laying around & wanting to cuddle. not his usual self to say the least.... he's in bed right now, i rocked him a little & put him in for his nap. hopefully this is just a 24 hr bug or something b/c i'm leaving tomorrow..

that's another story...

i start my new job tomorrow. in palm city, fl. a good 4 hours south of here. not excited. can you feel my excitement here? i have to go for training & oreintation for 3 nights. i have to be there tomorrow morning at 10 which means i need to leave by 5. not a big deal for me, i'm used to getting up early. but i will miss my little man!! last yr me & dan went rafting /camping for 3 nights so i've been away from him before, but it feels different this time. i guess i'm much more attached to him & we've spent the last week together which i have LOVED. i've never stayed in a hotel before by myself either. that'll be strange. anyways, i'm going to try to make the most of it while i'm gone. hopefully i'll be to busy to think about home.
my parents are on their way down right now to stay at the house while i'm gone. they'll be here till friday. thank goodness for my parents! what would we do without them & their help? not sure. i'm so grateful they could step in though & help us.

so, a lazy day lays ahead of me. i'm doing laundry, i need to iron all my clothes for the next week &'s rainy here, a good day to be home & relax. :)

finn's new adventure

isn't it great?!

i've been meaning since Christmas to get finn a tent, but i had yet to do so. i just randomly looked the other day on craigslist & found this one. so here it is!!
i got it this morning & he loves it of course. he smiled that little grin of his & walked right on in.

i haven't started my new job yet which is just fine with me! :) my last day at mayo was tue. so now apparently we're just waiting on all my paperwork to go through & then i'll start the new job. i wasn't anticipating any time off between jobs so these last 2 days have been great!!! i feel almost human again. :) i didn't wake up till 8 this morning, thank you finny for letting me sleep! so i'm probably thinking i'll be starting next week. we shall see....

lots of activity coming here this weekend, i'll blog later about this.

my heart is heavy this morning though b/c a friend of mine is going through something so sad. please pray with me for her. thank you!

my boys

finn didn't like it when i was grinding coffee beans the other night. the noise scared him. here's what he looked like....

he recovered of course & moved onto bigger & better things. aka the dvd's. he loves to pull them all out & throw them all over the floor. just lovely. :)

i like the way he's squatting here & concentrating so hard on what he's doing..

and here's my big boy tonight & what he's doing. i just got done playing cards with our friend shawn & dan's playing his game. exciting saturday night here in fl!

exciting post, isn't it?!

new job!

hey everyone! i got a new job. :)
about a year ago i submitted my resume to a laser company & about 2 weeks ago i heard from them. i was shocked! what this job is is that i will be traveling around jacksonville to the various hospitals when they have a laser case scheduled. we set up the laser & operate it during the case. they really need someone for the orange park area which is right by me! i am super excited about this & feel like it's a great opportunity for me & my family. i believe it will allow me more free time & this is HUGE to me.
so, i start in 2 weeks. of course i have mixed emotions. i've been at mayo now for 8 years. i've made some wonderful friends & i'm comfortable there. time to step out of my comfort zone! i will be sad to leave but i really think that this is a great & unexpected chance for me to do something different & to learn something new. too good to pass up!!
so.....wish me luck & pray for me please. i'll let you know how it goes!
