It’s April….Already

April_Fools'_Day_April_1

April first already?!?! Really!?!?

I can’t believe how fast time is going.  I can’t believe that it’s already April.

This is going to be a busy month for us, but it’s all going to be good!!  I just wish that time would slow down a bit.  I miss some of the time I used to have to just kick back and enjoy.  April also means that we’re close to the end of the homeschool year.  WOW!!  The first year of high school will be down and out.  So many other things coming this month, but again, it’s all good.

To all the “fools” that take the time to read my blog and follow along, a very Happy April Fools’ Day to you and I hope that you don’t get too many pranks pulled on you!!

Pink Slip

Today, hubby was handed his pink slip.  We pretty much knew it was coming.  They’ve let so many people go and they’ve been holding regular meetings with those that are left.  It’s all due to the massive budget cuts.  I can’t believe this administration can keep spending money like there’s an endless supply, but can’t pay government employees and contractors.  It’s just ridiculous.

If the Obama administration got rid of some of his employees and quit taking million dollar vacations, the rest of the government employees and contractors would be working.  As is, DoD employees are going to be furloughed and that forces them to get much less pay.  Contractors are having to let employees go because even though the government signed contracts, there is no money.  Yet, Obama has the largest staff of ANY president and none of them make less than $100,000 a year.  That would pay 2-3 people at my husbands pay. 

Anyway, as hubby was handed his pink slip, he was told to head over to Human Resources.  He did that and was told that he got another job that he’d applied for, so he won’t be without a job.  However, he will be taking a $5 per hour cut in pay.  That’s absolutely huge for us, but at least he’ll be working.  Thanks to all the meetings, he submitted his resume early and was able to get this chance to move into another job. 

We’re very thankful that God watches over this family.  It is because he is so good that we’re going to be alright during this time when so many are suffering.  We’re thankful for what we have and will make it work for us and we’re praying for those that were let go the same time as hubby or are facing furloughs!!

What’s Been Going On

I know that I haven’t been around much, so I thought that I’d update!!

First of all, the weight loss got a little hard.  I puked for those 3 weeks and lost a lot of weight.  The doc saw me and fixed it by taking some fluid out.  Then, my weight went in the opposite direction.  I didn’t put much back on, but enough to frustrate me and got me wondering what I was doing wrong.  I was so frustrated.  Well, this week, I finally lost weight again.  I’m feeling more confident again and ready to keep going!! 

This past week, kiddo was at my parents house.  I utilized that time to get some much needed work done around the house.  I got my closet cleaned out and that was a true chore!!  I also come some printable games created for a member of my group and I did those VBS ones as well.  I just did a lot of little stuff that needed to get done.  I’m sure you all know what that’s like!!

The week prior, we had sort of a mini-vacation.  We went to my parents house.  We had a great time and did something different with them each of the days that we were there.  I can’t say it enough….we had such a good time!!  I got home all relaxed and ready for summer.  I got so many bird photos while I was there and I got in quite a bit of practice with my new lens.  I really am having a blast with that new lens!! 

In the future weeks for World Bird Wednesday, I’ll be sharing some of the photos that I got while I was there.  I have enough to last for quite some time!!  I also got some flowers and some bugs to share on Macro Monday.  Let’s just say that my next few weeks of photo memes will be well covered!!

That really is about all that I have to tell you about.  Miss K is in classes at the vo-tech for 2 weeks now.  She looks forward to them so much.  It really is too bad that this is the last year that she’s allowed to go.  Also, she’s done with homeschool this year, but she’ll be spending the summer doing Algebra I.  YAY!!  It really isn’t going to be bad now that it’s all we have to focus on.  I think she’ll be just fine!!

Oh and some good news…..there was no lay-offs this week at Lean Green’s job.  That’s much of a relief to us and some that he works with.  It’s been stressful in many ways just not knowing.  It doesn’t mean that more won’t come, but at least for now, it’s all good!!

Hey, how about the OKC Thunder!?!?  Pretty awesome.  Western Conference Champions!!  We’re so excited and we have home court advantage going into the play-offs.  Totally awesome team and I’m not even that big of a basketball fan, but I love the home state boys.  So proud of them.  Hear that THUNDER roll!!

Alright, I’m outtie!!  Let me know what you all have been up to and what your summer plans are.
