well, i suppose i should just write this as if i'd been updating for a whole year a few times a week, but there's a little catching up to do, i'll do the fast forward version.
2 weeks after we closed on our house, jesse was conceived. 4 months later, i found out. five months and 5 days later, jesse was born. pix to come soon. hopefully. colby got a big raise, and now i drive a lexus. not really, i mean colby DID get a raise, but i drive a 10 year old chrysler. i love the car, don't get me wrong. so then we decided that we weren't getting ahead enough already, and that another baby was going to make us live pretty much from paycheck to paycheck again. In the immortal word of Bilbo Baggins, "Action was called for". so here we are in alliance nebraska, so colby can go to school to be a radiology tech. not his life's ambition, but that one wasn't makin' too much money. he can still do sound on the side though after it's all said and done. he'll have a lot more time with this kind of job. so, colby transferred to the HD up here, and is trying to get on with UPS. He had an interview wednesday, we'll know if he got the job by the middle of next week. if he gets it he'll still keep HD part time, but UPS will give us free health care, so this is something we really really want/need.
meanwhile i'm at home trying to get the house and my body in shape enough to live in. the house is far from baby proof, so i'm pretty much on teetering on the edge of sobriety (thank you ani) and sanity. we're starting with the 17 cabinets jax's been digging through. jess is a lot bigger than jax was. he's already in clothes that jax wasn't even wearing at 4 months.
being here really isn't a bad deal though, my parents have a big house with an upstairs that, aside from the kitchen, they really don't use. besides the kitchen, there's a living room (that room is dead to us though, it's so breakable) a bathroom, and 2 bedrooms, so the upstairs of their house is bigger than our last place, anyway. i think they bought this place with my slightly senial nana in mind. but we'll be out by the time she'll be needing to move in with them.
so--western nebraska--who knew?
drop me a comment if you still check this.
