Job Hunting plus Julie & Julia

So this morning I got up and made my dad
breakfast. Kids were still sleeping, so I got
onto 2 blog and watch Julie & Julia on Netflix.
What a movie. I wasn't such a fan of Julia
Child when I was a child. My mom loved
watching her shows. After watching it, I really
want to go out and buy her cookbook. I
heard it's a good movie and now I finally got
to watch it and apply for jobs.

He called this morning and asked how we're
doing. I told him that we're doing good. I have
to admit it's hard on the kids and they're trying
to hang in. Sometimes they just cry and ask if
we could just go back home to dad. I figure
one day when they're grown, they'll understand.

For now, I'm taking everything one day at a
time and hope that I'll be able to land a job soon.
I'm now putting up ads in hopes that I'll land
small jobs installing concrete overlays and acid
stains here in Utah, while looking for a regular

I'm back!!

I'm back!! I finally got back in from Portland with
my computer and was able to finally get it up and
running today. When I got back on Wednesday, I
thought my computer wouldn't start up and thought
that my trip to get it was all in vain.

 The bins that my monitor and cpu were in, arrived
cracked and that worried me when I got home.
I wasn't sure how my cargo was handled by JetBlue
ramp agents and was saddened by this. It seems to
have been thrown from how one of the bins are
cracked on both sides.

Thursday it wouldn't start up and the monitor was
just dead. So I let it rest and tried it again yesterday.
Good thing because it finally started up and every
thing is good to go. So I'll be back to my regular
posts and all. How was your week? I can't wait to
do my rounds and read up on your blogs and how
you're all doing!! I'm heading out to go coupon
shopping at SMITH'S today with my mom and
little sister.  Happy Saturday everyone~
