Well I am officially 30!! New Years Day aka my 30th birthday came and went. I cried quite a few times throughout the day. I was in a really bad mood and couldn't shake it. Poor Alberto just kind of hid in whatever room I wasn't in. Everything just exemplified the fact that i was "old" that day. My mom gave me a Wii Fit which I really really wanted and I am so excited about but when she gave it to me on my 30th birthday I just felt FAT and old. Then i discovered that Amelia has a Little heat rash on her neck so of course it was because I was old and stupid. So eventually I pulled myself out of the self pity mode and Alberto and I went to target to spend some money. I was so excited to find tons of shirts and sweaters and little dresses on sale for $1-$3 each for Amelia for next year. All 12 month size. Well i snuck a few in for now too!!! This really brightened my spirits because only a seasoned OLD shopper could find these great deals!! LOL!!!
New Years Eve was fun. We had family and friends over. We live outside the city limits so we are able to pop fireworks right outside. Most of our family lives within the limits of the city so this is too cool for everyone. So this is how it went. The kids thought the fireworks were pretty but too loud and so they got scared and came back inside. The women watched for a while and enjoyed the fireworks but it was chilly outside. So the women ended up inside having hot chocolate and enjoying the heater. The men however spent hours upon hours (yes they had tons of fireworks and several trips to the firework stand) upon hours setting off these fireworks. And the neighbors began to venture out and become spectators to the men in my life and their firework extravaganza. It was hilarious. The guys are already planning the firework show for July 4th!! LOL The pics I have included are the Debris on the street. My pics of the actual fireworks are not very good.
I start my work from home job training this Monday Jan 5. I am excited and nervous about the whole deal. I really want this at home job to work out. It will really work great for our family if it all falls in to place. I start back to my current job on Tuesday jan 6. Last week I met with my boss and told him that I would not be coming back. He is such a super boss. He told me that was wonderful and the best gift I could give my child is to stay home with her. He also asked me to write my official resignation as open ended in case I would like to come back to work at some point. So on Tuesday I start back part time for two weeks. I have to go back and get a certain amount of hours in order to keep the benefits i received during maternity leave. So for about 2 weeks i will work my current job and my at home job and take care of an infant. Woohoo I should be really friendly!!!
