Almost a month...

Well it has been almost a month since I started my new adventure.  I'm still really loving it and I am so happy report that it is getting a little easier and I feel like I know what I'm doing a little better.  My boss is finally to the point where she feels like she can leave the office for a few hours during the day to go do the marketing part of her job.  This makes me feel really good.  As much as I worry that someone will need something I won't be able to handle, I know she is only a phone call away and I definitely feel more confidant.

Sydnee is home for the summer and is back at the beach working full time.  I'm excited because she is going to start volunteering at my facility.  These volunteer hours will look great on her resume because they are in a rehab center.

Natalie's count down to France has begun and the closer it gets the more excited she is.  I'm so proud of her, she has been doing every babysitting and side job for friends and family she can get her hands on for spending money for the trip.

McKenlee's softball team is wrapping up it's it's season.  The girls still haven't won a game but they are so close only losing by one or two runs.  While a win would be nice I must say having close games at least make them so much fun to watch.  The girls have just improved so much and we are so proud of them.

The school year is almost over for Natalie and McKenlee they have about three weeks left.  They are both doing summer swim team to get them ready for the high school season.  It seems weird to type that because yes, both my younger two will be on the high school swim team next school year.  CRAZY that my BABY is starting high school next year!!!

This weekend will be busy re tiling the girl's bathroom.  This was a job we had no intention of doing anytime soon.  In fact our plan was to do our bathroom shower first as it needed it more but a slow leak that we were not aware of behind the wall made the decision for us.  Last week the plumbers were out fixing the leak and last weekend Dave and Natalie tore out the tile and green board.  Today the plumbers will be back to install the new bath tub.  Needless to say the girl's bathroom has been tore up for over a week now but I keep telling myself that this time next week it will all be done.  By the time this is over it will be close to $2000 that we didn't intend on spending. (Doesn't that just stink)  It's always this way isn't it.  The good news is I did get a raise with my new job.  You know the drill "easy come easy go."

Here's hoping you have a wonderful rest of the week!!!!
