I didn't get the job at the Wal-mart distribution center. I received the letter from Schneider Trucking Co. saying they will keep my application on file.

I am not really to upset about it because my husband gave me an job application from his work. I would be a yard checker. I am not to sure if I am going to take the job because it is 4 days on and 3 days off. I would be working 12 hours a day. I still want to be there for my daughter regarding school and her volleyball games. I will just have to wait and see. I wanted to be up front with payroll and clerical but they are not hiring for that right now. The insurance is just wonderful. It will be local 705 insurance. That is the insurance we had before the union pulled out of the job my hubby is in now. I will be working for Burlington Northern/Santa Fe railroad. The insurance my hubby has now does not have dental or vision. I think my daughter is going to need braces soon. I will just wait and see what happens with this interview. My hubby is bringing in my application tomorrow. Keep your fingers crossed for me.

I have been doing rotten with my diet. The last few days have been horrible.  I think I gained about 4 or 5 lbs back. Sometimes I put myself into this funk and I can't seem to pull myself out. 


My husband and daughter went shopping together. He just got home and bought her a new TV/DVD player for her bedroom. He also bought some baby blue paint for her room. She has been asking us to paint her room for about 6 months now. I am happy he finallly went and got it with her. I am not sure when we are going to paint. He goes back to work tomorrow so it will probably be another week before we tackle that job.

Here is another picture of my baby Bambi. He is still coughing. I think I might take him to a vet that is not associated with Petland and then maybe I will see what is wrong with my dog. The cough medicine doesn't seem to be helping. I hate to have to dish out more money but I want him to get better. It is so frustrating.

My hubby and I did the mattresses and box springs yesterday. I vacuum them twice a year because of the dust mites. He took them off and flipped them for me. What a hard time we had. We shut off the air conditioning because it was cooler in the morning but by the afternoon the humidity was up and we had the windows open. We started sweating so bad that we both get really crabby and said lets turn the air back on. It helped a lot. I hate being hot. I love being hot when I am in a pool but that is all.

I would take Bambi to another vet myself.  He should not still be coughing.  Poor thing!

Good luck with the job....and insurance!
Poor lil Bambi, I hope that cough gets better.
I need to vacume all the beds here too, but it is such a hassle......but soooo necessary with people with allergies.
