Working mommy again

I have gone back to work. I love my job! I used to work at Bath and Body Works when I got pregnant with my first child. I loved it when I worked there a long time ago and was very happy to accept the new postion. I truely believe in fate. I have faith that my iPhone messed up that day so I could go to the Apple store and see that BBW and go and run into someone I used to work with and get a better paying job with more hours.

Since starting work my lil man has had to learn how to take a bottle. Which wasnt an easy task for poor daddy. It took him a week to finally give in and take it. He was going 10-11 hours between nursing's because he refused to take the bottle while I was gone to work all day. I felt so bad, but I knew that he would eventually take the bottle from daddy. I was so relieved that he did it! Now on my day's off I make sure that he does get a bottle at least once a day so that he can stick with it for anyone that is babysitting him. This Friday my bestie is driving 30 mins away to come and help me out. She truely is a great and wonderful friend. Poor girl last time she got lost trying to get my oldest from preschool, then set off my alarm and couldnt get it to shut off! I was on the phone with her and the alarm company trying to get it to shut off. Finally got it to shut off and whew! She was awesome, I didnt have time to do a sink full of dishes that day so when I came home she had not only done them but cleaned up dinner AND the cake she made with the kids! She is a great and wonderful friend. When we are doing better and I have some time this summer Im going down there to see her and ride a horse at her in-laws house!

Last night at work was a good night that I did everything that I was suppose to do and tried very hard to make my 2 segments but alas I missed them both :( the first one by $24 and the second by $49. My conversion wasnt all that great either. They want us to be at like 72% or higher which not that unattainable it just not that easy either. I did however help the other girl make her segment with a $150 sale. Glad for her, just wish I could have made mine too :(

Since lil man is NOT going to let me finish this tonight I will have to try to blog more later... so with that NITE!

Today is Easter 2010! WOW I cant believe it. Gabriel is almost 4 1/2 months and Noah is 4 1/2! I wont get to say that again! The Easter Bunny came this year and visited both my baby angels. Not a whole bunch but boy at church they sure got a lot of eggs! Next year me and Mike will have to split up and go with each of the boys because Gabriel will be in the 0-3 group and Noah will be in the 4-6 group! I wish Noah was going to K next year but since he has an October birthday he doesnt start until he is almost 6! But I was the same way since my birthday was in the middle of Sept. My niece Rachel and Sophia will be the same way because of where their birthdays fall. Rachel's is just 3 days before mine and Sophia's is 4 days after Gabriel's.

My sister threw a Welcome Home Darrell Jr party yesterday in Atlanta. Im so gratefull that he is home safe and sound from his year long depolyment. He married in Decemeber, bought and closed on a house the same month, got his wife preggers, then left for a year! He was able to make it home for the birth of his first and only child Luke. Sarah was having some issues and they were able to get a Red Cross message to his command to let him come home 2 weeks early for his R&R. He got home Sunday morning about 8ish and she went into labor that night and Mr Luke was #17 great-grandchild to be born into our clan of a family!

Darrell's sister Leann who was also pregnant at the same time as Sarah and myself had a repeat c-section with baby Hadleigh which made #18 just about a week and a hlaf before my planned c-section. Leann is engaged to be married later this year! I really really hope I can make it to her's or my cousin Philip's wedding later this year. I just want to go home a visit everyone so badly. It made me very sad to talk to everyone on the phone the day of the party and they kept saying "wish you were here" I miss them all so much, but I also love my life here in TX!

Im going to have to go back to work here soon in the next few weeks because my FMLA is almost up for my 90 days that I extended past my maternity leave. Gabriel seems to be improving with his new medication. He's not a fan of getting a bit of a taste of mommy (I mix some BM in the medication to hide the taste) then having to wait 30mins before I can feed him. I also need to get a boogy on my school work. With all the relatives we have had visiting and all the running around and the baby its been hard to sit down and work on school work. But Ive GOT to finish so Mike can go back to school so he isnt a LVN forever. If I can finish and get a good job making as much as him then we'll be set for him to go back to school because the GI bill will also give him money for housing, books, tutition, etc. Im going to start to set aside at least 2 hours a day if not more to work on school. Ive got to stick to my guns and get my degree. I will have it!

Well I better go to bed now, lil man might or might not let me sleep till 7:30am! Here's hoping!
