Update

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.
