Update and an Award

Posted by on 17 January 2009

Well, there’s a few things to get caught up on.  We have some very good news to report.  The Man had a job interview on Monday and he came home with high hopes and feeling good about it.  They told him that if they were interested, that they’d contact him within about 2 weeks.  Low and behold, he got a call today and was informed that they were going to hire him.  He’s got a job!!  YAY!!  He had to go in today and fill out his official application and do a urinalysis test.  The Man will be working on post as a mechanic, which is a contract job.  It’s a good position and one he’s very much qualified for, not to mention what he loves doing.  We’re so happy!!  The only issue is that he’s required to have his OK driver’s license by his starting date, which is 2 February.  He would have had 90 days after his official retirement, but now he’s got to study hard and get his test taken.  Much like me!!  HAHA

We had a great week of homeschooling.  Miss K loved everything we studied this week.  We got a little behind on math and language arts, so we’re going to Saturday in between our family things.  I think much was accomplished around here this week in all.  I even got several games made!!

Now onto something that was given to me this week by Laura.  She presented me with this very beautiful award….

Isn’t it pretty??  Sure does give you the warm fuzzies on these cold days!!  Of course, there are a few formal items that go along with this “Butterfly Award”.  With that said, the rules are:

1.  Put the award up on your blog.
2.  Add a link to the person who awarded it to you.
3.  Nominate at least seven other blogs.
4.  Add links to these blogs on your blog.
5.  Leave a message for your nominee on their blog.

I’m supposed to nominate 7 other blogs for the “Butterfly Award”.  Let’s see how I do on that.  I’d like to give this award to:

1.  Annette at Under the Loupe

2.  Suzie at Homeschool Blessings

3.  Debbie (& Shawna) at Mommie Mayhem

4.  Rachel (the mom-to-be) at Following in My Shoes

That’s all I can come up with right now.  I’ll try to work on adding 3 more at another time.  Goodness knows that I want to share.  Thanks for this beautiful award, Laura!!

UPDATE:  Laura and I read many of the same blogs, so she often “beats me” to giving awards to certain bloggers.  However, I forgot to note this last night and want to update that I’d like to second the vote (or passing it on) to Kathy at “Kathalog” and Debbie at “Almost….Daily Brain Farts”.  I read them both without hesitation because they’re so fun, interesting and make my day.  That’s also why I read Laura as well.  Now isn’t that a coincidence!!  HEHE

    Thank you for your congratulations/comment on our big news. I’m so excited but nervous. .. . I guess that’s pretty typical though. :)

    Woo Hoo! Way to go The Man! What a load off your mind, huh? Tell him to read the tips I left for you on my blog for his drivers test. LOL Maybe some of his luck will rub off on me and I’ll be gainfully employed soon. One can only hope!
