So here it is in a nutshell, then maybe tomorrow (sunday) I will do a real post with details and such.

This week was Bowen's 11th birthday. I cannot even fathom I am old enough or been married long enough to have an 11 year old son. And worse yet his school just sent home the premission slip for the "maturation" course at school. SERIOUSLY!!!! It totally freaked me out. Oh well, I guess it's time for Scott and I to grow up also.

I went on 2 job inerviews this week, I think they both went well, but there are soooooo many people for so many jobs, they both told me the response was overwhelming BUT I was in the top 3 as far as qualifications go. Now it just basically comes down to whether they like me personally or not. Luckily for me I have some killer references from my previous employer, so that helps.

Scott has a test for West Valley Fire Department next Saturday, and then one for the Ogden Fire Department on March 11, so we are keeping our fingers crossed for those.

Finding an house in North Logan is proving very very difficult. We found a duplex but the owner has not let us go through it yet, he keeps putting us off, which leads us to believe that there are some things wrong with it. I have gotten so desperate that I started calling on homes that have been on the market for some time and asking for lease options. Luckily it paid off and today we are going to see a house in the area of 1500 East and 1200 North, the rent is in our range and it is within the distance to teh fire station so now what is left is to see the condition. It is only technically a 3 bedroom, but there are some "bonus" rooms that don't have closets so they cannot be labeled as "bedrooms", but we can make them work.

So that is all. I am now over my shock and sadness, I gave myself a week, now it is time to move on and grow up. We need to clean and pack to move and that is now my focus, along with applying for jobs.

Life Sucks.......and Then You Die

So I realize that is a dismal way to view things, but today this is how I feel.

First off it is the anniversay of when Scott lost his job in Washington and life turned upside down. Scott has been hired by the North Logan Fire Department BUT we have to live in North Logan in order to work. SO.....we are desperately looking for a house in North Logan to rent because of such short notice, but there aren't ANY. I am not even exagerrating.

Just when you think life can't get worse, believe me it can. Today I lost my job. I don't know where it went, but I can't seem to find it, and according to my boss I won't find it ever again. So for 2 years in a row the "bread winner" of our family has been dealt a serious blow and lost a very important job. Just to answer some of your questions, no I did not do anything wrong, and yes I would admit to it if I did. I believe the words were "this isn't going to work" It wasn't because of lack of dedication to my job, I worked 300 hours in January, and they admited that had nothing to do with it. Apparentaly I just don't fit anymore. Sucks huh? Nothing I can do now. So I think I will just "hang" this weekend and then hit the job circuit again hard. Please don't feel sorry for me, I can't stand anymore. I have been fielding phone calls from my friends at work all afternoon with their sorrow. Just pray for us and our family, heavens knows that is all we have right now is Love and Faith, and yes someday, hopefully later than sooner, we will die.
