Happy Monday. I went to the gym today with my Best friend, Tina. It was nice to get out and chit chat and work out. Nathan got to play in the kids area there and I think he enjoyed that!! He was great today, seeing it was our first day as Stay at home mommy/son.
I made the bracelet you see above today. Got the pattern from for a contest I played in with them.
Tomorrow I have an Interview at 10am so wish me luck!
Wednesday I have a test with Jeff. Co. Bd of Education. Wish me luck on that too.
Now to find something to wear...ack!! Not having to Dress up at my last job kinda makes the pickin's slim!! I may have to go to Goodwill one day and see if I can find something worth interviews!! Now THAT should be a challenge! LOL

Things are going better. :) I have been sending out resume's left and right. I got a letter back from the Jefferson County School District and I have to go take a typing test and some other test for the position.

On the fun side I've been knitting and beading between the resume send outs. I looked at my work space and thought, "How do I work in this mess" , but seems I manage and get things created. Lately I've been working on beaded faces and having fun with those. I have to get that lamp working so I'll have some good light.

I also finished a little knitted hat for the boys. There's a couple spots where I dropped a stitch and I have to get them fixed, but it's a hat!! No pattern, I just winged it... slid it on their head a couple times in the process. I'm working on another now for my DH.

Heather taged me she challenged me to the 5 Women meme thats been circling the Blog circuit so here are my the 5 Women who have Inspired me...
My mother-she's such a good mother, friend, girlfriend, you name it! She's always there for me and the boys and my DH. She supports my beady habit by wanting almost ONE of everything I make, so I normally have to make two!
Carol aka Mamarox-with out the push from this friend, I don't think I would have come to the love of bead that I did! She also has the most beautiful out look on life and I strive to remember to keep the same positive out look! you can check her out at her website
My best friend Tina- Tina and I met our freshman year of Highschool. We have been best friends ever since. We've gone through a lot together and have supported each other through sad times. I think the worst was the loss of her mother.
There are a lot of other gals out there that are big inspirations and just awesome women in my life!!
Heather, Becca, Ellen, Cris, Dot, Donna, Tamelyn, Celti, Lea (miss our chats girlie), Grace, Jenn, Stephanie.

Now for some Holiday Spirit! We went to the mall yesterday and ran into a jolly old man! :) How fun!

Tuesday...Doom's Day...
I was layed off...laid off....booted out the door from where I worked for 9 years, today. HAPPY FRICKIN' TUESDAY!
I came home and felt sorry for myself for about 15 minutes then though...NAH this is not the way to go out! SO I went to Walgreens and got a Mtn. Dew, Fast Break Candy bar, and some bubble bath and "Celebrated" Turned on some rock -n- roll and relaxed. This is the first time I've been jobless since I got a job waaaaay back when I worked at "Everything's a Dollar" and yes, everything was a dollar! (Don't you love those stores! Great for kids! haha)
I'll be pulling Nathan out of daycare and attempt to be a full time mommy at least until the new year. I will enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday with my family and Christmas Holiday with out worrying about deadlines and commitments for work (did I send that email? Did I fax the shippers?? Did I send the bills off??!!) What a blessing!!! I'll be a new woman! HA! I have a paid in full membership to the Gym, that INCLUDES childcare, so during the day while Jake's at school, Nate and I can go to the Gym..I can work out and he can play with other little ones! I'm rather excited now that I'm writing all this down!
Hopefully I can do some more art and knitting while looking for a replacement job!

A HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHOUT out to my friend Heather! Hope it's a great one!! :)

Me and the boys on Halloween

Halloween was a fun night. We took the boys around our neighborhood, my parent's house and my husband's father and step mothers house... we even squeezed in Grandma K's house too, hadn't been there in awhile!! She seemed happy to see the little ones :)
Jacob was GOING to be Darth Vader but then changed his mind to be Buzz Lightyear. It turned out cute because I had gotten Nathan a Woody from Toystory costume. They were cute as could be. Well, just look for yourself :)

My sock knitting class is going just grand and I'm getting comfortable with some of the gals in the class. We Turned the Heel last night!! WOOO I thought it would be harder!! Once I finish the sock I'll post a picture of it too. I really want to try a felted bag soon too!
