Good news!

Yes we do have good news :) I am going to take my time getting there though because it's not anything really exciting is just great news for us, and our living situation. Okay Okay Kevin's company got a HUGE contract today, part of which is here in Amarillo. This is good news because there is no chance that we will have to move somewhere else due to them closing the service center here. It possibly will mean that there will be a second person working at his service center which really hopefully will make things better on him. It's stressful for him to be on his own and to take all of the call. Lucky for him once he gets home tonight (which won't be til near 10pm) he is off for the weekend :) I am glad to have the weekend for he and I to hang out together. Our exciting plans include well... Sams club and laundry I think :) Better than him having to work all weekend again. I def won't have to work so that is good. I have been getting more and more tasks more directed to office manager than anything. I also play nurse in the mornings and then do a lot of other things now that we have another girl up front. Dr. B. would like me to become a notary and will pay for it. Things at both of our jobs are looking good. School is still in our future, and we may even have found a house to rent, more details on that later though.

Finally Sammy and Roxie are willing not only to be in the same place at the same time they actually play together haha :) They are so cute together, but they demand A LOT of attention and one can't get any without the other. Sammy sometimes forgets which food is hers but I think she is getting better about not eating the kitten food. She def gets it when you say no, she spits it out crazy girl I tell you.

Sammy and Roxie are finally and getting along, and I might add they are cutely snuggled up and sleeping on the couch with Kevin. Had I not been an idiot and accidently thrown away my camera charger I could have taken a picture. I however ended up tossing the charger cord with the trash when we got the camera and have yet to find a replacement.... I can be sooo not smart sometimes for a pretty smart girl :) I am so upset over that because I love my new camera and now I can't use it.... I am working on it though. I am glad that Roxie and Sam are getting along, now they can stay in the same room at night and Roxie won't try to hiss Sam away :) They were even playing today.

Today I got a new coworker, and she seems like she is going to work out pretty good, and will be working in the front office with me. I am glad to have someone to help, sometimes 3 phone lines, and 1 person to answer them gets a little rough. Hopefully she will be a lot of help and be able to do things well and helpfully :)

Kevin's company may be getting a new account that would be HUGE and so I can't say a whole lot at this point but, if this goes like expected they will be hiring a second person and will not have to close the Amarillo branch as was thought might happen not long from now. We are keeping our fingers crossed for this new account.

That is about the extent of our excitement, I know I know you are just wiggling out of your seat with the joy of all of our excitement but hey you know it's life and things are good, so, can't be too bad. Always a good thing when there isn't too much negative drama going on in life :)

New Name

Okay we decided that Tara (the name she came with) wasn't a good fit for us so we've renamed the kitten Roxie, now if we could only get her to befriend the dog, it would be okay haha :) It's going to be an interesting few weeks while they try to get along HAHA :)

And then there were 4

Today we welcomed a new member to our family. I went to a work (the hospital) bbq at my friend's house and she offered me a kitten, and I joking said "Kevin would have a fit!" I talked to him on the phone later and just said "Hey want a kitten HAHA?" He was like what? do you? So after many uh I don't know what about Sammy and do we really want one... I came home with a kitten. Her name is Tara. She is 5 weeks old and loves to play and explore all the dark places around such as under the dresser, the bed and in the closet. She is a lot of fun though and I caught a picture of her while she was sleeping, but playful pictures will probably come as that seems to be one of her favorite past times. Who knew a ball with a little bell in it could create hours of fun, not only for her but for Kev and I?

Samantha is very curious about her, but as of right now Tara is not having it. She hisses and gets ready to attack when she even sees Sammy about to come her way, or even thinking about it, or so it seems. It is quite funny and we do hope that they will become buddies soon. We are trying to introduce them slowly but Tara really has no desire whatsoever to even be curious. I figured since I was posting pictures of Tara I couldn't let Sammy think she was being neglected now that there is a new member, whom I might add she is very very jealous of and took her picture as well :)

She does NOT look happy, and it took about ten tries to even get her to kind of look at me. Things are a little tense for her but she will manage I'm sure. She is going to hate it when we decide to add a baby to the mix, she seems to handle just about anything as long as it doesn't include someone else to take up the attention she feels she deserves and ever so lovingly shows us she is annoyed when something else is getting our attention even for a few minutes, talk about spoiled HAHA :)

I know I know

Well it's been like what... 6 days since we posted.... we are really trying to be better haha. This week we have been working so late! Kevin has had to go to Clovis (300 miles round trip) everyday this week and has to go back tomorrow. He is trying to get a bed fixed, that is giving him a little bit of trouble. Things at my job have been a little stressful and well we have been running so late, it's crazy. I thought I was going to get out early today but nonetheless it was still 7pm before I got off.

With all of this working going on we were excited to hear that we have a 2 night, 3 day stay at a hotel, we are still working out the details and are hoping to apply it to our vegas trip in January which we are very excited about. We are heading out there for our friends' wedding which is at the Venetian and should be a lot of fun. We are also going for a couple extra nights to hang out and visit all around. Another exciting part is one of my best friends (she lives in philadelphia right now) is moving to Vegas like two weeks before we get there (if all goes as planned) so we will be able to see her too which is awesome. I am hoping that falls into place also. All in all we are just mostly working with nothing too exciting too share at the moment.

The only other news I just thought of is that we are probably going to move at the end of October because that is when our lease is up and we are looking for a house so hopefully that will work out too because they are trying to raise our rent and I think it's time we got out of this apartment anyway. I hope all is well on everyone else's end!

Happy Birthday Kevin

Today Kevin is 25. There isn't a whole lot to tell about his birthday he did get a uh... motorcycle ;) and a little chocolate cake so he was happy as can be.

Today I was leaving the dr's office and I was waiting behind a red jeep to pull out on the main road. Well out of nowhere she just decides to back up.... into my car. I was so mad. I hit the horn when she was backing up and when she hit and she pulled out quickly and was gone. If by some chance lady in the red jeep finds this... I am so mad. All of this before Kevin tried to talk a car dealership into a good deal but they wouldn't go past a certain amount (thankfully) so that was quite a day dealing with cars. As for everything else things are going along we are just talking about finding a new place to stay and we are just trying to figure things out day by day. Soon pictures of the motorcycle will be posted you will enjoy them :)

Nothing exciting

I know I know, we are slacking already. What do you want us to do? Make up things to blog about? Change what really happened during the day to make it sound like something exciting? I didn't think so either. So here's the basics because well that is about it lately. Kevin had to have a sleep study this past week, actually it was part 2 of his sleep study experience. So lets rewind a little to just before his first one when he had to arrive at 8pm. I reassured (having had one myself back in delaware, which made me of course the expert of the house) him that they would not make him go to bed early (they didn't) that they had cable tv (they didn't), they had a shower for the goopy stuff they put in your hair the night before (they didn't), and why would he need a book (he did). Needless to say the first thing I heard the next morning was how they had him lie down at 930 and had no tv and no shower. So back to the second one, he was found to actually have sleep apnea where he stops breathing while he is sleeping and has to wear a machine that I have yet to see. So I'm thinking that will be cute (I will def try to get some pictures of that.) I just got a new camera and some new pictures will be readily available soon, be on the lookout (I know you are so excited). That is all the fun and excitement I have for you family and friends for the moment as I have to go get ready for dinner and movie.

A little rambling.... :)

I hate it when you have a nice sized post written and something goes wrong and it doesn't work and nothing gets posted.... ugh :) So instead you get a quick overview because I am not into typing it all over again. Sorry :) I had to work today for awhile, things went so much better than they do during the week. It was a lot more relaxed in the sense of no drama like with the normal nurse who has been having a lot of stuff going wrong. She is making a lot of mistakes and some of them have been big ones which worry dr. b. he is going to talk to her but she might be not with us much longer. It will add a lot of stress and work to my life, but a lot of experience so we'll see. As for everything else well nothing exciting. This weekend will conclude with a lot of cleaning/organizing our apartment and possibly adding a few things to the dining room. We are trying to get atleast a rent house by november, and so we are needing to clean out anyways. Kevin has well been volunteered by well me :) to help and be involved so it will be a lot of work but it'll look better. Somehow we have collected a lot of stuff. I will try and get some after pictures to post. The only potential bad part of that is I am well a little slow at times and accidently threw my camera charger in the trash when I was getting rid of the box.... so we'll see I'll try. Hope everyone has a good labor day weekend.
