Chris started a new career last Monday. I say career instead of job, because that's what it is- a much more serious job that is 40/wk, at least $2 more an hour (just to START) than he was making, and involves 5 weeks of training! He's working for this place called Converges. If you haven't heard of them, they're like a telecom company that does the over the phone customer service for big companies like Hyundai, Sprint, etc. He's working for the Charter internet group doing like Internet tech support and sales (I'm pretty sure I have all this right). He's also working with two of our neighbors which helps with the boring classes and the carpooling, since we still only have one car. But OMG, what a relief that he's found something that he's going to enjoy and be really good at and make the money he deserves!
On the flip side of good news, my gym is closing :o( I'm verrry upset about this! I just started there in March and I'm just now starting to get into my routine and all that jazz. It's all very disappointing, because now I'm going to have to try to find a new gym or something, and it's not going to be the same as my ladies-only, hot pink and purple, 80's workout to the extreme crazy time kinda gym. Maybe Chris and I will join a gym together now. I think he's interested in doing that. We might have to see what his schedule is going to look like after these first 5 weeks.
Chris's birthday is coming up very soon. I hope that we get a chance to do something cool. He wants to go camping somewhere, idk what this is going to mean with his new job, but I think it means that he's only going to be able to be gone over the weekend. I'm still going to take the full 4 or 5 days off that I originally requested. I need a break from work, it has really been stressing me out lately. I'm also taking vacation time the first week of August (our annviversary). So that will be nice. I hope we can do something cool then too.
I just got back from Florida. My sister, Jenn, and I took her kids down there to stay with my mom for a few weeks. That was a long ass drive. It was worse for Jenn, because she had to drive the WHOLE way because I don't know how to drive a stick. She also doesn't have cruise control. We also had three irritable kids crammed in the back seat. It was also like 14 hours straight. It was also verrrry hot down there. Don't ever let me forget that I don't ever want to live there again.
I talked to my old buddy, Steve, from Ekotren. I couldn't get ahold of him while I was in FL, but he said that they're going to be playing in Jacksonville again around the end of July. I'm going to have to get the specific date soon and call Sean and Andie up and make plans and all that, so I don't miss them this time. I'm sure it will be some kind of weird blast from the past watching Ekotren play again. At least this time it won't be at Battle of the Bands at Cape Coral High School (haha). Nah, they're pretty big time now. Steve says they've been in every state in the continental U.S. and they've toured with all kinds of big names. I'm kinda proud!
Speaking of music, have you guys HEARD the new Eminem cd? bombtron.com
here's a goofy series of pictures of me trying to get Ares to pose at the camera with me. I was trying to use the 10 second timer thing, since it was just me and her home and no one was there to help me out! But she kept on kissing me when I got to her!
