sunday thoughts

8 Mar

right now, i just put the girls to bed & sat down to watch celebrity apprentice. i’ve always been a succor for the apprentice! ryan went to dallas tonight to pick up my sister, jen, from the airport…they should return in a couple of hours. all is quiet and i plan to chill out for a little bit & eat some phish food. yeah!!!

here are some random thoughts & updates for you…

-first of all – GREAT NEWS: ryan got a job at tyler junior college as a media specialist & we are SO thankful and excited about this. we feel so blessed to find this job in this economic crisis! he starts a week from monday.

-i’ve applied to several jobs in the area and am hopeful to find something very soon as well…i’m now considering part-time and trying not to put the girls in daycare. or if i find a full-time job, it has pay something substantial to justify the crazy costs of full-time daycare for 2! God will provide just the right thing, we are confident.

-so it looks like we’ll be staying here in east texas for a while…living in my sister’s house has been great and we love it. we’ve done some decorating this weekend to make it more “home” for us…hung curtains, put up some art, moved in more of our stuff, etc….

-this warm weather has been awesome…its always refreshing & good for my soul when spring rolls around! enjoy these days while they last b/c it will be HOT again before we know it….ah, running in 100 degree weather and having to ring out my running clothes afterwards here i come!

-addison has been doing so awesome at potty training…i couldn’t be prouder! she loves how happy it makes us…her face just lights up and you can tell she is just so proud of herself…i love it!

-i am just so thankful for my family…both sides – dixon’s and clark’s. i love my family & some recent events have just made me more aware of that! 

-ryan has nailed a new recipe for pulled pork that is amazing! he sears it on the grill, smokes it and finishes it up in the crock pot….oh my, is it good!

-kamryn still doesn’t say too many words. you can tell she knows what you are saying and understands…she just chooses not to talk. but, she does say something that just melts my heart. i will say, “who loves mommy?” and addi will yell out, “i do!” and kamryn will say, “do!” its adorable.

-ok, gotta focus on the apprentice now…hope you all have a great week!!!

    Yay!! We’re so happy that Ryan got a job!!! That’s great news!!!!

    When we were in San Antonio and walking on the riverwalk, we stopped at a Ben & Jerry’s shop and I had some Phish Food ice cream (just because you said it was awesome) and I LOVED IT! I am a chocolate fein so it was right up my alley.

    Glad you guys are doing good. 🙂
