1. I've become a horrible blogger and I felt guilty about it as first but now I'm ok with it. I've never been in this to gain tons of followers although I love each of my followers tons! This was more of a place for me to just express myself and get things out when I needed. Lately I just feel like there are more important things to do even if that's just sitting on the couch watching cartoons with my kid.
2. The kiddo is growing like a weed lately. In the past year she's grown 3 inches and I'm pretty sure at least 1 (or more) of those inches has been in the past month alone. She suddenly outgrew like 10 pairs of shoes and I'm not even kidding. One week she was wearing them fine and then a week later I couldn't even get her foot in a some of her Toms and her toes were hanging off the end of her sandals. All of her shorts and dresses and obviously shorter now.....it's crazy! I'm still mentally blocking out the fact that she starts actual Elementary school in a little over a month.
3. Work has been crazy lately. When I first got hired we were still short staffed but within a couple of weeks they had hired enough people to finally get us in a good place with scheduling and all that. Then we got a new co-manager and yikes! She fired 2 people and one person who was transferring in a few weeks she told them to go ahead and go. So in other words, we are once again, short staffed. Sunday (which is one of our busiest days) I got there at 12 and was supposed to leave at 9pm. With a lunch break at 4. Well, from 1-4 there was just two of us there then at 4 the other person left and I was there by myself from 4-6:30pm. Yup. It was crazy! We got super busy and not only did I have to take care of the deli counter and the hot bar, I also had to keep the hot bar stocked which means cooking...it was nuts. Not to mention I had been there and on my feet with no break since 12. My closer came in at 6:30 but he's only been there for a couple of weeks and they had him closing by himself (which I closed by myself not to long ago and it's insane!) so I offered to stay for an extra two hours and help him closer. I didn't eat much, I was on my feet for 10 hours almost straight, didn't eat much and drank almost nothing (a Red Bull & part of a Coke.) Yesterday I woke up and literally felt like I was dying (slight exaggeration but not much!). I was SO dizzy and felt feverish and weak. Then it dawned on me I was probably severely dehydrated! So I spent most of yesterday laying in bed and drinking water and juice. I felt better by the evening and I'm back to myself today!
4. You are all probably wondering what happened with us buying our first place. Or maybe you aren't. Lol! But anyway. The place we are purchasing in a short sale. We were told it would take 4-6 weeks to get our offer put through and approved. That time line has long since passed. Apparently we're approved on our end now but there is some process they have to go through on the seller's end.....it's complicated and ridiculous but the short of it is they say it's now going to be another 4-6 weeks before we can actually own it. But the seller has already moved out, she's been out for several weeks now and has agreed to rent it to us until we can actually own it. We really loved the place and it's an amazing deal so we don't want anything else. Now I'm just PRAYING we can get in by Aug 1st!!! Fingers crossed!
So that's about all the excitement that's been happening around here. Working three days a week has made me really appreciate the time I am home and especially the time I get to spend with my hubby and kiddo now. Evenings are much more important than they used to be. And it's also made me realize, even more, how amazing B is! He keeps the house up better than I do, he entertains Gigi and did all the mowing this past weekend on top of it all! Amazing man, I say!
