The Month Of May.....

I've been looking forward to May because it means summer is getting closer, as well as Sarah and Matt's birthdays. Well....this month has started off with a bang, and an AWESOME bang at that. It is amazing how a simple thing like two people moving can make your life so incredibly.....BETTER!. Not to sound like a mean, bitter, or rude person.....oh screw it! I am SO EXCITED I can hardly stand it. For those of you who now think I've lost what's left of my mind I will explain. The roommates are GONE. WAAHHOOOOO!!! Sunday, May 1st, 2011 they officially left; left the keys, also all their trash and mess but whatever. I was annoyed at first that they were that rude, but honestly I'm so relived that they're gone I just don't care. I am so excited I can hardly stand it. Anyways so I've been working on getting our house clean, I've decided to start at one end of the house and just deep clean everything to the other end. I am now on Day 4 of cleaning just the kitchen and I'm just a few dishes away from being done. Matt's working on cleaning out the bedrooms and next on my list is the living room. I bought some gloves the other day and starting working on the flower bed out front yesterday; didn't get much done because I had dinner plans but I'm excited to get back to it. Matt has been working on getting grass in the backyard and it's coming in nicely! It's nice to have a grassy backyard instead of a dirt sandbox. As much as I really don't like to do work, (house cleaning and yard work) I have had a lot of fun doing both, it's a great sense of accomplishment.

On to the other good news. Matt had a job interview last week for a position he's been wanting for a while. He works out at Bybee Foods as a forklift driver for almost a year now but he's been a applying for a position as a mechanic which is what he knows and loves to do. And it's 99% that he got it! We are so excited. Matt's happy because he'll be doing something he likes and getting paid more. I'm happy because he'll be doing a job he enjoys and he will have a more "normal" schedule. Right now he works Tuesday through Saturday 11pm to 7 am. So I don't get to see him much during the week, with this new position he will be working 6am to 4pm Monday through Thursday. It will also be nice with him making more because we can get things fixed on the house and pay the mortgage without stressing about the money. Things will still be tight, but less stressful. I've been looking into getting a second job, but Matt's been telling me not to and now I'm excited because I won't have to. Between working at Domino's going to school two nights a week I don't get to spend as much time with Sarah as I would like, and if I had gotten a second job it would be even less.

I am so thankful for having such an amazing boyfriend who encourages and supports me to stay home with my daughter as much as I can.

We already have one person who is going to rent one of the rooms. He's a co-worker of Matt's from Bybee's and hopefully be moving in this month. I'm not looking forward to having more roommates, but for now it's more helpful with making sure we get the mortgage paid and being able to save up money to fix up the house. I told Oscar, Matt's cowoker, that we will get along just fine as long as he doesn't touch or move my stuff without asking me first. :)

Well that's pretty much all the news I have.
