New Job!

If you all remember I had an interview about 2 weeks ago and I found out today I got the job for the second time! I know the "second time" doesn't make sense so I will explain. First of all it took a while to hear back the first time cause she had a few more interviews to do and she was supposedly going to tell me last Monday if I got it or not, but the guy she needed to speak with was on vacation and that she will call me either way by Thursday at the latest. Well on Monday last week I found out that I was pregnant so I had a choice to tell or not to tell the lady who might hire me. I finally came to the conclusion to be honest with her since I knew her from Matthew's previous property he worked for. I figured that yeah I could have told her after she hired me, but I would hate to put her in that situation. I didn't know what to do because I wanted this job, but I also knew what my heart was telling me and that was to just be honest no matter what happens. On Thursday she called and immediately I told her that I was pregnant and that I completely understood if she didn't want to hire me now. She was very grateful that I told her the truth and that she really wanted me for the position! So that was the first time I got the job. She said that I would have been a great person to work with and that I would have been great with the residents, but she understood that family comes first. She told me that she has never been in this situation so she was going to talk with someone and see what they say about it. Well today she called and asked me if I still would like the position, so now I got the job for the second time! She said that she knows I may not stay after the baby is born, but that maybe my mind may change if I need the money at the end of 8 months and I totally agreed. She said I will be perfect for this job and the fact that I'm pregnant did not change her mind in any way. I told her that I was really grateful because I was already thinking that she was going to hire someone else since it would be in her best interest to hire someone to stay for a long time. She understood but she really wanted me for this job.
So I took the job and
I will be starting the job around July 20th! I'm really excited to get started! I will be a part time Activities Director for a 55+ apartment community! Funny how life works out when you least expect it!

Puppy Teeth

I never knew puppies can lose their teeth like humans do! I have grown up with dogs all my life and I never knew this until we got our puppy Roxy. On the first of July Matthew got up from the couch and stepped on something sharp he looked down and it was one of Roxy's teeth. We got a little nervous so we called the vet and she laughed in a nice way and said that puppies do lose their teeth. At first we thought that maybe her bones that she chews on were really hard and so that is why it fell out. Thank goodness that wasn't the case. Then last night Matthew sat on the couch and felt something sharp and saw that she lost her other tooth. :) I saved them in a bag and wrote on the bag the dates we found them.

This is how tiny her teeth are compared to a Hot Tamale

Happy 4th of July!

Happy 4th of July everyone! Today is going to be a wonderful day. First my husband has the day off on a SATURDAY all because of the 4th! This morning we are meeting at our friends house to follow him up to Lake Arrowhead because his fiance (our friend Lisa) has her fathers house for the weekend. Since we can't stay through tomorrow we decided to go up for a few hours and come back to go to my aunt's block party which we had originally planned for today. I can't wait to start my day! Happy 4th of July!

I'm so excited to spend this day with him! We have been together for 7 years today! Who would have thought 7 years ago when he asked me out with a poem in front of Grandma Johnson's house that we would be here today?! I love him so much!

Surprise I'm PREGNANT!

I'm PREGNANT! This was a huge shock to me and Matthew! After I found out I met Matthew at his work for lunch and I surprised him with a card that said, Just Because Its Monday! Then he opened it and inside was a my positive test taped to the card! I had the camera ready and this is what he looked like haha

I still cannot believe this is happening and I think it won't really sink in till I start to show. I'm really excited to start our family! We would love a girl first because my brother is having a boy in October, but obviously we would love a boy too! The main thing is that we hope it's a healthy baby! I will post more once I see the doctor.

My picture upload thing still isn't working so I downloaded my pictures to myspace and used the URL version to upload them that it why they are small.

For the past two days I have been wanting to post some pictures and the upload image button for the pictures is not working! I hit the add image button then I select my photos and then I click upload image and it does not work! I have tried it in Firefox and the light just keeps going around the triangle and in Internet Explorer it freezes. I just want to make some posts!
