Life as I know it

October 13, 2010 at 4:33 pm (General Life Updates)

D has got a cute new habit of wringing her chubby little hands right up under her chin. Its cute. Somtimes she tries to get a finger in her mouth, but she rarely  unfists her hands long enough to succeed. She also is getting  a little restless about the chair – it isn’t going to work for much longer to keep her happy almost all day. She has started to smile, but unpredictably and not in response to obvious outward signals. She just decides if she’s going to look amused at you or not and acts accordingly and there’s not much you can do to elicit a smile if she doesn’t want to give one. She’s starting to try and coo at us, but that’s still infrequent and lots of the time she just manages a gasp-screech like she’s held her breath for too long. She is wearing 3-6 month clothes that barely fit, and starting to break into 6 month clothes. She is 2 1/2 months old, almost.

Tomorrow morning, K has a second interview for a job with an oil company. His first was on Monday, in Colorado. He took the kids and made a quick cross-state trip. He has to be back in Denver for his 2nd interview tomorrow morning at 7:30 am. He’s flying tonight and flying back tomorrow afternoon. Much to my surprise, the flight cost less than he spent in gas this last weekend. He’s staying with my parents instead of going all the way south to his mom’s house. Hopefully, her feelings won’t be hurt.

If he gets this job, it will be in Brighton, CO. He will start in about 3 weeks. We will be moving back to our house in Colorado Springs, and he’ll have a nasty commute in store for him until we can sell it. But it will hopefully keep us out of foreclosure. And out of this apartment. And out of Utah. I don’t know what to think about all this. I want him so badly to get the job, but it seems surreal that we might be moving again, back to where we started. And I’m trying not to get my hopes up, but I think its too late and I’m going to be pretty devastated if he doesn’t get it. WHich is nothing compared to how bummed he’s going to be.

Hopefully, the waiting will only be until mid-morning tomorrow and then we’ll know one way or another. I hope this is part of the Lord’s plan for our family. This job has potential to become a CAREER, and a good one. Vigorous, kind of crazy hours will have him gone a lot, but we’ll be able to PAY. OUR. BILLS. Which would be HUGE.

Again, trying not to be too hopeful, while being optimistic at the same time. Its a delicate balance to achieve.
