Not too loud as we might scare it.

So what have I been up too?


We had a fantastic birthday party but I don't have home Internet right now so I can't upload the pics. We did the number "1" theme complete with a cupcake-cake shaped in a "1". Super cute. Anyone that is having a *midget b-day party, I highly recommend investing in a bubble maker. Eric got one at Wal-mart for six bucks and it was a huge hit. In fact we are still using it when Conner gets fussy and we want to calm him down.

E is still kicking some little league football booty, playing center. This has been quite an experience for me since I don't know jack about football and really don't care to know. But my little boy's job is to be the hiker and protect the quarter-back(I think). He is good at it and they have only lost one game and it was super close. His only beef is that he had to tackle a girl the other night and he felt weird(awww).

I applied for a very good job that I am border-line scared off but want so badly. It would be changing fields, somewhat, but taking what I love about my job and getting to do it all the time. It's workin for the man though so there are a bunch of hoops and the interview was one of those that you don't get to talk about what YOU want to talk about, it is a pre-determined list of questions like; describe a specific office conflict you have had in the past and how to deal with it. So I am going to say it was definitely not my best interview.

Also, here is a little tidbit about me. I tend to ramble about really weird and personal stuff when I am nervous, or sceered, whatever you want to call it. I may or may not have told my interviewer that I debated on eating lunch and I did and now my tummy was making weird noises. I actually said that.


She laughed, but it was in that weird-uncomfortable way.

Then, I was thinking, "Wow, I think that totally broke the ice."

Now, I am thinking, "I am a MO--Ron".

I really, REALLY want this job.

It may end my blogging career..hardie har.. but I still want it.

I won't know their decision until next week so until then I will pray, hold my breath, make bargains, be nice to everyone I come in contact with(just in case), and pray some more.

Also I am thinking about dressing Connor up as King Julian, king of the lemurs in Madagascar, for all you people that are lucky enough to not have watched that movie 60,000 times this year. I think it will be cute and I can get the costume online for about 10 bucks.

Anyone else craving some pumpkin pie?

Oh, YEAH. I do the same thing when I'm even the slightest bit nervous. I say really rambly stupid things. Sometimes my brain just blitzes and I do really dumb things, too. Like the time as a camp counselor when we were doing a skit in front of our 10-17 year old campers, and I said, loudly and clearly, "What the f*ck?" as a line in our skit. I totally didn't mean to, but it just came out from somewhere. There were even parents in the audience, too (the parents of our 4 homeschooled students, so you can imagine where on the liberal-to-conservative spectrum they fall...). Sigh.

The party cake sounds cool, as does the costume idea. I'm still torn about whether I'll be dressing up the boys this year or not. I think they're a *little* too young to trick or treat, but I know my neighbors would get a kick out of seeing them on the holiday.

I'll be thinking good thoughts for your job, and hoping you're able to make the move to a place where you get to do the fun/interesting part of your job more often!

Bubble maker???!! That sounds freaking awesome!

I am a bumbling fool when I am nervous. I say dumb shit. I get rashy. I laugh ridiculously. I always feel like I get all sweaty and then picture mary katherine gallager from SNL smelling her armpits.

Anyway, good luck w/ the job! Hope you get it!
