I'm Still Here

Things have been so hectic and every time I have a moment to blog....I just don't have much to say.  Gavin is doing really well.  He's seven months old already.  Can you believe that?  Wow time flies:)

So what has my little man been up to: Waving bye-bye, shaking his head no, clicking his tongue, blowing raspberries, crawling, giving high-fives, drinking out of a sippy cup, no more nursing to sleep, giving hugs and kisses, saying "momma" and "I love you" (but it comes out as "a wa woo").   He almost never cries and is a very easy going kid.  He's my chill guy. 

I have been applying for jobs like crazy again and am in the process of packing.  I am very determined to move closer to family and my friends. 

Thanks to my dog, we have been very active.  I walk about 4 miles a day which has helped me to lose about 20lbs in the last month and a half.   Surprisingly, I still have not dropped in sizes in my pants.  I think I lost all my weight in my boobs.  Not exactly where I wanted to lose it but I guess that's just the way it goes.  

I had a number of unexpected expenses come up in the last two months that have rendered me broke.  I hate living paycheck to paycheck but I have been doing some side work which will hopefully put me back into a situation where I can start to put money back into my savings account.   I'm really hoping to get a call back from a job I submitted a resume for which would double my salary but I'm not sure I'm going to get that lucky.  But if luck is on my side and  I get the job, I plan to take my first paycheck, cash it into dollar bills, throw it on my bed and roll around on them.  Oh a girl can dream, right?

I'm so glad you posted. That scary guy has me worried about you! I hope that all goes well with the job hunt.

I can't believe Gavin is 7 months old!
