"All we need is patience....Yeahhhhhhhhhhh....Just a little patience....Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh."

Poop.
Damn it.

Well, it turns out we got our applications in too late and they already hired 8 family teaching couples.
We were told that if ANYTHING changes that we'll be first on the list of people they call, otherwise re-apply in the spring.

I'm disappointed.
We really wanted to do this and we're still going to try to in the spring.
But ladies and gents. in case you didn't know - Annie has an issue with patience.
When I want something I want it now.
I've always been that way.
I feel like I've gotten much better over the years, but of course, there's always room for improvement, right?

Now, to be honest, I don't mind staying at my current job. Apparently, I haven't been there long enough to become jaded. I like everyone that I work with ( the kids AND the staff). And I can't even complain about management. Everything's cool.
But poor Randy is so tired of his job....he just keeps truckin' along. He'll stay there until we find out what's going on in the spring. He makes good money, has EXCELLENT health insurance ( both of the girls were pretty much "free" - and that right there is almost a million bucks - No, I'm not kidding, give or take a few thousand here and there), and he can work from home when he needs to, as well having over a month in vacation every year. So, he'll stay put for now.......

Thanks all the nice emails. I love you nice people who live inside of my computer. I hope you all forgive me for not posting as much as I was, but well, I just haven't had the time.
Have a kick ass weekend!!

Congrats!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My sister ( I leave out the in-law part, b/c...Well, she's my sister...and I love her more than an"in-law"....kinda why I call Randy's mother mom ) and my brother finally closed on their house. It's BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!
Take a look.

It's amazing.
I'm so proud of you guys!!!

Notasoccermom wants to be a soccer mom

I took a little vacation from blogging. I didn't intend to, it just worked out that way. Working 3-11pm and spending all day with kids hasn't left much time for the internet.

But here I am.
Did you miss me?
Awww, I missed you Guys too.
Thanks for all the emails :o)

Now on to the news.
Big changes are in the works for us ( Myself, Randy, and the girls).
We're applying to become family teachers for the organization that I work for.
So, long story short- We'd sell our house, move to the Boys Town campus, live in this MASSIVE house and raise 8 other girls besides our own. I guess I should explain that it's a regular community on the campus. We'd have our own apartment connected to the house we live in with the 8 girls.

It's all very exciting.
Being parents is something that we ROCK at.
Even we got married we talked about doing foster care when we had a big enough house.
So, this is kinda a way to do that. It would be our full time job. And since we're that weird couple that does everything together anyway, it's an added bonus.
The money is ok, but it's not about the money. We'd actually loose all our bills except car payments and credit cards ( which aren't that bad to begin with). Utilities, food and gas are paid for. They even give us a van to drive ( we're still keeping our cars, though).

So, that's what's up with us.
Keep your fingers crossed for us!!!

Still, I've got nothing...

Life has been pretty boring lately.
Lots of running around over the weekend.
I'm still tired.
Hopefully, I'll have my mojo back tomorrow :o)

Nothing exciting....

I've got nothing....
It's Friday and I'm off this weekend.
I plan on seeing X men 3 with the hubby and then getting tanked.
But not too tanked, cause,well, I suck at drinking these days.
3 drinks and I'm done.
Today I'm scrubbing toilets, kitchen floors, doing dishes, and taking the kids to the store to get bubble toys and filling up the kiddy pool.
The littlest things make them happy.
If I get a chance, I might go tan before work and get my eyebrows waxed.
I know, I know- try to contain all the excitement.

Have a good weekend!!!!
