I would REALLY like to talk about everything that has been going on at work. I hesitate to put anything detailed on this blog. If it were a private blog, no problem. I will say that the pace has definitely picked up. I finished out the week having NOT completed all my work. It is a good feeling to be busy. Yet I miss "M" everyday. She was a mother figure to me, and a genuinely good person. It was really sad for her to go, yet I don't harbor any ill feelings towards the superiors in charge of making those decisions. I realize they did what they had to do.
Today I am at home having my DirectTV installed. I am sure those boys hate me. I bet they even make some kind of notes in their computers to NEVER come to this house again. What was supposed to be a simple installation has turned into a big hassle. For them anyway. They couldn't get the TV in the master bedroom to work. After several HOURS of investigation and trying different things, it was determined that the only way to get the TV working in the bedroom is to install a completely new line.
Do you guys remember my horrendous mouse infestation? Well let me tell you what the little buggers did. They chewed through the cable line that runs in the wall. I actually had our cable company out here a couple of months ago when the cable stopped working in that room. The cable repairman said that we needed to rewire the entire house for cable. I knew that was a crock, so I sent him on his merry way. I got a 30 dollar service charge added to my bill for that little escapade. These boys have done a wonderful job, kudos to them for working so hard to get me some TV in my bedroom.
I babysat my little nephew Taylor this weekend. He will be a year old on St. Patrick's Day. I want to talk about him for a few minutes. He is the CUTEST baby. Every time I spend time with him I try to teach him to say "Mama". I smile at him and say, "Ma-ma, Ma-ma. He is quiet for a few seconds and then says in a loud baby voice, "Da-da-da-da". I swear I think it is pure stubbornness. I also noticed that my sister has obviously been using "No" on him. I can tell because when he grabbed for my coffee cup and I told him no, he immediately yanked his chubby little hand back. He then proceeded to put one little index finger on the cup and looked at me to see what I would do. He was also licking? kissing? my coffee table. I hope my sister believes that dirt builds up their little immune systems.
When my sister asked me to babysit, I felt confident that I could handle an almost one year old baby. After all, I'm an old pro at this. I successfully managed to get two girls through babydom completely unharmed
I think God meant for me to have my children young. He knew I wouldn't be able to handle an infant full time in my thirties.
P.S. The Majic Jack is working out beatifully for our family. I like it and it works just fine. You can't beat it for around twenty bucks a year for the service. It does include voice mail, caller id, and call waiting. You do have to purchase the equipment, which is not unreasonable. If you are looking to cut expenses and are looking into getting rid of your home phone service, visit www.majicjack.com and check it out for yourself. Unlimited nationwide long distance is included. No, I am not a paid spokesperson, I just know a good deal when I see one and want to share it with others.
