So sense we are not where we want to be living and we have minimal room in our apartment and I have the nesting bug I have started by redecorating around here. And by here I mean blog work. Look for a new headline this week too.

So this last week has brought a few changes in my work world. My company was sold 3 weeks ago. The new owners have owned simular businesses in the past but not one exactly like ours. Now there is several of us that have been there for 3-5 years, basically since it was opened. We are a close family. We are all adult and thou this job is not any of our dream jobs we do our jobs very well and have 90% regulars as customers. The new owners said nothing would change but we have realized in the last couple weeks they are very controlling and slightly paroniod. Things we do everyday have been questioned if we are stealing. We do not have product and are told to just tell customers to get something else. Specials are being changed with no warning to the customers. Now I began this job as a hiatus from the real world nearly 4 years ago and have had difficult managers and such over the years but nothing like this. I have never had a time where I did not want to go to work. I do like it and 99% of the people (with regulars there are some you just aren't bbf's with no matter what). But there is a feeling that has come over everyone that is to protect you own behind and find somewhere else to go before we are all replaced. Now the choice of do I ride it out till I am really miserable or just go somewhere else. Since this is not my career choice why is this decision so hard? Cause I do make great money working only three days a week and I like everyone their besides the new owners.

In good news I have been doing really well in my classes and have 2 weeks left, thou the last week is just a wrap up with no test or homework so really one week. Then I have my second session which is seven weeks as well. After that I will be a certified paralegal. Which at that point I will began my hunt for a job in the Austin area. So it adds to my do I want to change jobs three months before I look for ANOTHER job in another city.

Why do I have to be a grown up? I wanna live in Neverland with the Lost boys.....

Where have you been?

So I realized it has been a while since we talked. What have I been up to? Well get ready this is going to be a LOONNNG one! Well since I last left you the next day this happened.....

Yes my pretty car is not so pretty. Someone decided I did not go thru a fourway stop fast enough and I was T-boned. I have been fighting with insurance for the last two months and still have some unresolved issues, but I have my car back, mostly in one piece.

Then a week later we finally left on our honeymoon. That was not without it's own drama but I will leave that for another post in the near future. I promise!
Us happy before leaving Houston and finding out there would be 1200 kids on the boat!

We were gone for 10 days and ready for a vacation the day we got back! Once we landed in the airport we got the news that P did not in fact get the transfer to Austin. Strike 2. They needed someone right away and his branch could not release him for another month. Need less to say we where very dispointed as we feel good a bout the chances of getting this transfer. It was back to work and dealing with car issues. No rest for the weary!

We did make it up to the Austin area to eat at Casino El Camino, as featured on diners, drive-in and dives. I love that show and I now love Casino's salsa verde chili cheese fries. SOOOO GOOD! We then stopped in NB and then made our way to Helotes to see Reckless Kelly. The next day we floated the river with some friends and it was LOW, low, low!

We also visited with P parents and I got to see some of our "stuff". We moved everything out of the storage unit to his parents after the wedding and now have the two back bedrooms packed to the brim. I kept waking in the middle of the night to make sure no boxes or the hide away couch that was on its side were going to fall on our head. Seriously we have some crap! When we get a house I am sure we will have to have a garage sell to get rid of a bunch of stuff we no longer want!

I started school on Aug 19th and after Dec 4th I will be a certified Paralegal. I have been wanting to do this for a while but the timing was not right. So far I am doing good as I just finished week 4 and my first midterm memo. Hopefully with this, a real estate license and a notary public I can find a job in Austin in Dec-Jan!

So our plan now is to stay put thru the end of the year and I finish school and P get his bonus. After that we will be hitting the Austin job market hard! We are both ready for a life change and just have to take it one step at a time. I know god has a plan for us and we can not rush it.

With that I bid you good night and ya"ll come back now ya hear!?!
