Life is great.
Texas is awesome. And hot. And rainy. And has fun stuff to do.
We got called as the “CTR 4″ teachers in our ward at church. So, instead of being bored in sunday school, nudging mark to stop playing “cut the fruit” on his iPhone (except for when we make a deal where if he scratches my back, he can keep playing), we’re rounding up crazy 4 and 5 year old boys and girls and trying desperately to get them to listen to us. They’re hilarious, cute, and frustrating as I’ll get out. But we love it.
I have a job at Costco. I’m doing “morning merch,” which essentially means that I get to work at 5am (or 4:30 on saturdays) to stock stuff. It’s not easy, but the pay is great, and I feel much better about myself now that I’m getting up early and working hard almost every day. It’s a great job.
Except for a couple days ago when I sliced my finger open with a box cutter and had to go to the medical clinic.
But most of the time, it’s great.
Mark’s job starts MONDAY! Praise the heavens.
I mean, I love him. And I love having him home. And I really honestly am going to miss him when he’s gone working all day.
But… when he’s bored, he has a tendency to be a little…weird… and act like a 12 year old boy… and not give me any privacy in the bathroom… and watch way too many tv shows…
…But I’ll miss him. Promise.
He’ll feel so much better about himself when he gets working. It’s been a fun couple of months together but we’re both anxious to get a schedule going again.
So, we’ll both be working. I’m finishing school online, and he is working on his website in his free time. Which is, like, always.
What else… Oh, we got season passes to Six Flags. It’s awesome. Especially since we’re getting old and couldn’t last more than 4 hours at the park without getting headaches and backaches and wanting to eat. But it will be awesome to have something to use as a common date activity
Oh, and Teeny. Here’s the story.
I’m addicted to Craigslist. Let’s be honest. And we’ve been talking about getting our cat, “Tiny,” a friend. Cause he’s just so bored and hyper and needs attention.
I saw an add about a little kitten about a week or two old that needed taken care of. So, naturally, I jumped on it, under the agreement that we “wouldn’t keep it.” Yeah right!
We took her to the vet, and found out it was a girl. Which is what we wanted.
We’ve been debating names for her. I’ve been calling her Sweet Pea because she pee’s all the freaking time and on everything.
But being Tiny’s little sister, we decided to go with Teeny. Cause technically, Tiny was tiny when we got him, but she… she’s just so teeny.
Yeah, she’s perfect. Mark is completely in love with her.
No human babies yet, but soon enough
