Back with the living.

I hate to do another post like this but I just have so many things that I want to get caught up on.

~ We are finally better now. It was amazing, the minute my fever broke I felt better. The few days after I felt like I was totally rested. It sucks to get sick, but I loved the extra rest that I got.

~ It was a good thing that I started to feel better too because I had a birthday that I had to plan for. Thursday was Little dude's birthday. I am still in shock that he is now 5 years old. He had a great time and loved all of the attention. I survived the dinosaur birthday cake (pictures to come) and I was actually pretty proud of it. He celebrated from Wednesday at school, Thursday at home, Friday we took him to lunch, Saturday he had a party with his friends, and Sunday they sang to him at church. I am all birthday-ed out.

~ Remember that thing that I mentioned that I was getting impatient about? That thing that was going to change our lives? Well, I can now say what it is. My hubby quit his job at Chase. He was starting to be unhappy there, and things were getting a little hard on our family too. He had been praying about things and what would be best for the family, then one day the answer came to him. (He didn't know it at the time, but we now know that it was totally his answer) He had a feeling that he needed to look at another bank's website to see if they were hiring. They were so he took just a few minutes to fill out the online application. 20 minutes later they called him and set up an interview. The next day they met with him, and set up another interview for the day after that. Within the next week he knew he had the job. He had beat out like 60 something other applicants. He put in his two weeks and they told him to just take the time off. So for the next week he will be at home, then starting his new job next week. This really will be better for our family and for his carrer. He will be in a biger branch, they will be teaching him some things that he couldn't learn at Chase, he will be making more money, and he just feels that he will be happier. I am excited for him and so happy that he listened to the promptings of the spirit.

~ Since my hubby was at home on Friday we thought we should take the kids somewhere fun for lunch. We took them to the Mayan Restaurant so they could watch the cliff divers. They thought that it was really cool. They gave Little Dude a silly hat and gave him ice cream for his birthday. It was so fun to spend time as a family. The kids really got a kick out of it too.

~ Today is our 8th wedding anniversary! I can't believe that we have been married 8 years all ready! I am more in love with my hubby than I ever have been. Every day I love him more and more. I am so blessed because of him. He works so hard, and I am so proud of him. Happy Anniversary Honey! I love you!

Handsome Hubby!

I am glad to hear you are feeling better. Being a sick mommy really doesnt work with 3 little ones. And I am glad to hear your hubby is happy with his decision.
