Does life stop throwing all the damn curve balls? I'm tired of going with the punches, I am gonna start punching back!

Oh the joys,

of being sick!

I think the stress of all the stuff that was going on finally caught up to me. I've been sick since I think Tuesday morning. But Tuesday morning I found out that I got the job. YES!!! I will be working at American Family Insurance, as a Marketing/Sales rep. I'm sorta excited about this, we'll just have to see how everyone adjusts.

So anyway there is a little update. Sorry not a big one but whatever I got really took me out. I was feeling a little better today and since we've had no food since I've been sick I thought I'd go to Walmart to tackle that. Half way through the trip I realized that was a bad idea because I was feeling crappy. It goes in waves, but if I do to much then I can tell. And since I just cleaned the whole downstairs because no one else in my family decided it was important enough. I feel like crap. So back to the couch to rest!

As far as the job goes I start on the 2nd. One more week!

Did you know that it's almost impossible to get a job today is this market, or any market?

Well I'm hear to tell you that it is crazy ridiculous. I have been trying since I don't even know when to get a job. It was either right before or right after we got our house. I have driven around on several different days dropping of my resume. I've had several interviews. Some to witch I left very pissed off because they weren't even hiring until May or for 3-6 months. Why did you waste my time?

I have had 2 interviews with the current company I am trying to get a job with... and everything is standing still on something that is on my credit and I guess has been since 2005. I have to get it removed before they will give me a job offer. Now this said item should not be on there. I called the company and explained the situation and told them I have documentation stating it should not be on there. So far I've spoken to at least 5+ people each one telling me different things. I've faxed said documents 3+ times and they've only received them once. They said they will take care of it when they can, but MY JOB DEPENDS ON IT. I asked if they could supply me with a letter stating this would be taken care of, they tell me there is no such letter. WHAT?

So not sure where to go from here, but I'm just frustrated with this whole situation. From having to get a job to the issues I'm dealing with at the moment. I realize that it's the economy, but really can't I just get a break. I've been so overwhelmed and stressed, it's just crazy!

Beautifully imperfect...

I wish I could get this video I saw on facebook over to my blog. But for now I'll just state that sometimes it's the little things that bring things into perspective. This short little clip was a funeral and the wife came up to talk about her husband. But she didn't want to talk about all the great things about him. She wanted to talk about how he snored at night and farted at night. And then when he became ill it was the only thing that let her know that he was still alive.

It makes you take a step back and look at life and look and the little things in life. Do you ever find yourself just going through the motions and living life and not taking a step back to realize what life is all about? It's about ALL the small things, the little things that make life worth living.

Yes the things your husband does may bug the crap out of you. But Mike often says to me, "you'll miss it once I'm gone!" And truthfully I would. If Mike were gone it would break my heart to not have him to kick at night for snoring... I would be so sad that I wouldn't laugh every time he looked up at the sun just to make himself sneeze. I would miss the smell of his yucky spit after such said sneeze. And believe me there are a ton of other things I could post about what he does! :)

Sometimes I catch myself getting to wrapped up in the day to day grind, and the day to day stresses that just consume me... that I'm not able to just take in the things that I would miss if they were gone. So today I think I'm gonna slow down a little bit and enjoy my kids and just be happy in the moment and not worry about tomorrow. Tomorrow will be here soon enough!!!
