On the homefront:

Well, finding a job has not proved to be an easy task. I've put in application after application online and had NO luck. I am determined to stay positive. I know things will come together. They always do! I found out that one of my friends in the moms group I belong to just got a job at outback in Chesapeake Square. With a little coaching from her on how she got the job I have decided to go to all the main restaurants in Chesapeake square in person and pursue a waitress or hostess job. If that doesn't work I'm also looking into a job at a Christian school assisting with their day care program. So although its been discouraging thus far I'm still going strong!
John got his books for school today. 5 classes=$700.00 in books! I'm SO proud of myself for not freaking out. Having 60 college credits under my belt and having experience with the way things work with text books in college probably has something to do with me keeping my cool. I knew it was coming...Anyway, we just keep moving forward.
Thomas and Nathan got their immunizations today. Thomas had a REALLY hard time with the shots. It came down to physical restraint to get it done. WOW. Talk about your heart breaking for your babies. One of the positives of John not having a job is being able to help get these things done. I stood outside with Nathan while the shots were being given. Thomas kept screaming he wanted ME. I honestly don't think I would have had what it took to hold him down. For a 4 year old that boy is STRONG. Poor Nathan got SIX shots. 2 in each leg and 1 in each arm. He took it like a champ. The younger they are the easier it is to just get it over with and move on. It's funny because if you had been in the other room listening to my children howl and not known what was going on you would have thought it was the end of the world! But as soon as the nurse busted out a lolli pop for each there was silence. Funny how a lollipop can make EVERYTHING better for a child. Wish it was that way for adults ;0).
