…I don’t even know if that’s a real song but even after 20 years I still get it stuck in my head.
I’m a mama again! Sort of. Megan finally made her cat give birth, and so now our cat collection has gone up again. Yipppeeee fer me! I hope this new batch stays alive. So far I really like our newest, Claudia. And she has made herself right at home…
And now for some more good news… it looks like my husband will be hired for a job that he really really really totally really wanted. His interview was today and it went great (the guy kept him in there for three hours). This is excellent for us because it would mean a regular weekly paycheck, plus commission and bonuses, and it also comes with health insurance. Yay! Hooray! Hurrah! The guy also told him that, based on his resume and just from talking with him, he thinks he’d be a potentially great fit for a managers position that may be coming up (I think next year). That’s so cool. My husband is so exceedingly marvelous. This is great news for us.
The sales job he’s had for the last year is ONLY commission based. And that’s hard, because iffen you don’t sell nothin’, then you ain’t gettin’ no paycheck. It was hugely excellent for us when he was able to quit his second job (a graveyard job position, which we were super thankful for but it was murder working so many hours), and now for him to just have ONE job — that should cover all of our bills — is really a huge answer to prayer.
In other news, we’ve been watching the John Adams movie, based on the book by David McCullough (rented it from Blockbuster). I’m really enjoying it. Abigail Adams was quite an amazing lady. It’s funny because the Abigail character reminds me *so* much of Kate the Lovely, and about 30 minutes after the movie started my kids turned around and screeched – “Doesn’t that remind you of Mrs. Kessler???!!” It totally does.
And for some more good news… Jess and Charley are coming back later this year to spend Christmas with us. HALLELUJIA !!!! Ryann… don’t tell your siblings, it’s sposed to be a surprise.
My ducks have already cleaned 1/4th of the pond. Super Ducks.
