Job Searching

In thinking about moving at the end of the summer, I've started thinking about getting a new job. Well, I'll have to get a new job anyway since mine will be ending. This has caused me to start taking a look online at what opportunities are out there.

Since I've been trying to focus more on school, I haven't taken a deep look, but in my glancing around I have only found disappointing job sites. I need to find job sites that only have credible job postings. How can a job site not do any research into what it is posting? In the last five minutes I have found at least two scams. Does anyone have any good ideas for websites with good jobs?

In other words...

Yesterday was Declan's first birthday party! There were upwards of 30 family and friends that came to celebrate with us (pictures to come). We had a rockin cowboy time, with delicious food, fun people and yummy cake. While the cake's decorations left something to be desired, the taste is all that matters once it is cut and then it became pretty good.

Declan was a good boy and spent most of the time crawling up and down the stairs since he had so many people around to pay attention to him and follow him everywhere he went. He is SO independent. I know that it is good, and will lead to healthy development... but it makes me pretty tired in the long run!

So, now that the party is over, it's back to focusing on school, playing with the kiddos and getting everything done. At least we have a clean house now (well... mostly. It got a little more messy with all Declan's new treasures).

Clean house= sanity!

I'm thinking...

The way to lose weight is probably not by eating four brownies in as many hours.

I really do like to go running with the boys, but it takes SO LONG to get ready and out of the house. I really wish that I was better at it and didn't have to work my way up to running longer distances. I feel silly getting all pumped up and only being able to run for 5 minutes.

I am excited/terrified/anxious/proud that Declan will turn one in exactly one week. I can't even explain it.

I am trying to keep remembering that life isn't about waiting for what's coming next, but just enjoying what I have right now.

I am learning how to control my emotions/help my relationships from the oddest of places.

I am so proud of my younger brother.

I can't wait to be done with grad school.

Sometimes I wish that people loved me back as much as I love them.

I hear my baby waking up...

more teeth

So teeth numbers 5 and now 6 are making their way in. We've been dealing with some crankiness, but he slept through the night last night, so we at least aren't adding exhaustion today.

My baby will turn one in 10 days. I can't even handle it. He is exploding with personality. He has a great sense of humor, and has a great time laughing. He is starting to wave "bye-bye" much more consistently, he signs for milk, he can hold his own bottle, stand up (using anything), and I am constantly amazed.

I think I had to grow into it a little. It wasn't instantaneous. But I now know how much love a person can possess. It can fill you from your hair to your toenails. It is bizarre to me that one day he will be grown-up and won't be mine anymore. Where is the pause button?

All I want to do is have more babies and raise a family. I never thought I would think this. I still think I might get bored, but I want to be able to have more children and really take care of them. I want to be able to make money by doing so. If anyone figures out how this is possible let me know.

Today I was talking to my Nana on the phone. We ended up talking about marriage and I said that we were working on it every day. This caused her to pause. She said that she never thought of it that way.

Now, you see, she is probably the only example of a healthy, successful marriage that I have in my life. So if she says that she never thought of it that way, but that is how I have always heard of it... then... I don't know what to think.

Who is this?

Who is this little boy? Don't I have a baby? This little boy looks so grown up. I can't believe he is almost one.

Wait... did you see it? I almost missed it... that was time. Flying by. So fast.

Spring? Hello? You seem so close!

I haven't been on here much lately. I've mostly been trying to enjoy the warm weather. The enjoyment has been pretty interrupted by homework. Logan has been trying to be good about forcing me to do it in order to make us all less miserable in the end. I understand his point. I could go into a rant about the merits of doing things earlier just to get them done (cough cough clean the apartment cough) and be less miserable, but I'll stop myself.

I should get back to homework, but I'll bask in remembering the beauty of the last few days. I made it out to Castle Island with both MY boys (Dex and Logan) and THE boys (Dex and Leo). It is so nice to not be cooped up in the house. They can go outside and just roam. However, I see the Declan is getting a bit more frustrated recently. I think he is upset because he just wants to be able to walk and isn't there yet. Hopefully it will happen soon.

Here are some pics from our lovely times outdoors.
