January 2009

Wow the first month of January is over. Johnny and I enjoyed Jimmy and Leanna's visit. Poor guys, they never have enough time for everyone. I know how that is. When I was little and my family visited Phoenix we never had enough time too spend with all our family. We still love you guys. I appreciate the help Jimmy gave to Johnny with my vehicle. New Brakes!

Now Johnny is spending time with Austin. We're glad he's in town. They are going snowboarding tomorrow. I am going to try and put on the tires today. Hopefully the girls I'm babysitting don't act like crazy kids.

Johnny had found a car he really wanted and after thinking about it a little more he has decided to wait. I'm a little disappointed but I'm glad he is content with his decision. I look at craigslist occasionally look at Craigslist at rental houses available. I found a place that is less in rent and has more sq.ft. than the house we're in. And the bonus is that it's in Albany. After a nights sleep I realized how much effort it would take to move out of one house and into another while getting ready for deployment. So I've decided to stay put in Lebanon. Sorry friends.

Johnny has thoughts about giving Daisy up. We don't know anybody at the moment that would want her. I am sad and disappointed. I have spent a lot of time with her. Training her with obedience skills and I'm starting to teach her some sign language. I don't want to see her go but I don't know how to argue to keep her. I don't want her to go to the humane society because she will just be put down. Johnny was telling his mom what he wanted and he said that he doesn't want her to come back. So if the next family that takes her doesn't want her she could still end up in the humane society. I'm afraid that she isn't going to live her full life. She is full of so much energy and a lot of work to take care of that I don't see a good future for her. Hopefully we can find someone that will love her just as much as I do.

Ohh and I have a feeling that the college preschool that I work for is going to be closed for the summer. That is the first year since I've moved up here that it will happen. I'm disappointed because that was my saving grace during the summer. Now I will have no job this summer. But good news is that I did get a tutoring job for this term. No one has called for help yet but once midterm time comes I'm sure it will change. I am about ready to look for a full-time job and it may not be childcare related. I'm so disappointed at the way things have turned out with the college preschool. I intend to go back to school for my bachelor's. Hopefully it will be sooner than later.

That's all that has happened this month. Hopefully February will have a little less going on. January sure did wear me out.
