Dear "Qwest":

"I hate your stinking guts. You make me vomit. You're scum between my toes! Love, Sam S."

Yeah, that's right I gangked this line from The Little Rascals (a movie the hubs and I equally adore)! Well, my internet has been screwed up, a.k.a. SLLOOOOOWW for days now and then this morning it completely crapped out; decided it hated me and was not longer going to work. <~ that was me being overly dramatic. I couldn't log on until about 200 PM. Big whoop, right? HA HA All's well that ends well!

Well here's a lil' update from the interview I had on Monday: I suck... I am still unemployed... No one wants me... (evidently I wasn't finished being overly dramatic- haha). Seriously, Cindy (whom I interviewed with) was nice enough to call and tell me that she "enjoyed interviewing with me but that they were hiring someone else" because I suck at life. :) Notice, how the last part was out of the quotes, as she never said it. Well, I still have the "as needed/on-call" type stuff going on with a school district around here and that should start picking up soon, because classes being the first week of August. That, combined with the help I give my Pops (for his real estate business) should give us what we need to get by. It would have just been nice to have something more set in stone, more reliable every month... which is why I haven't taken a commissioned-based job, but I'm sure we'll work it out.

Other than that Kevin and I have been speaking quite a bit this week. He's super home sick (which I don't get because I'm still at home- obviously), and I think growing more nervous because things have been heating up there lately. So far all the conversating hasn't created an issue; we've been getting along VERY well lately! We've mainly been discussing Homecoming plans. I'm just excited to have him in the same house as me.... Sitting on the couch, taking the garbage out (yes, babe, there will be chores ha ha), watching movies/TV, Not eating or sleeping or shopping or driving alone... where as he's wanting to go here and go there and see them and do this and it all just sounds like TOO much excitement for my pretty-low key person to be dealing with. We're still going to Vegas in September and we're tossing around the idea of going to the Ball, in Sept also. I would love to go and have the experience but I just think right now, financially we can do other things with our money. Such as, buy the camera, I've been living without... I mean really it's 2009, I think we're the only people on the planet without a digital camera! So, the Ball is still on the fence- we'll see.... We've also, recently pondered the idea of going to Portland to visit his family AND decided against it. Yes, we talked about it briefly, but when we realized that it'd mean boarding Brody for 2 full weeks we knew it would be out of our budget. =( Earlier this week Kevin's Dad told him that he may not be able to make it to the Homecoming... We were very disappointed to hear this. But we also understand that times are hard everywhere and everyone has their own lives to tend to and maintain. Especially, my FIL , as he is a business owner. So, it makes sense just sad at the same time. We'll have a great homecoming though, that's for sure!!!
I'm wondering, though, do any of you have some really interesting or unique homecoming ideas or stories? I want to make it special for Kevin, but lord help me if I wasn't blessed with a whole lot of creativity!

I gotta roll... I'm gonna hit Target see if they have something I've been looking all over God's green earth for! But I will be blogging again this evening... I got TAGGED for my very first award by Erin at Deployment Woes so I'll have to pay it forward (if you will) later on. <3 tootles.

Sorry you didn't get he job.

We are not doing anything too creative for my hubby's homecoming. We have friends that own a restaurant, so we are having it there. A little beer and some good friends. That's about it. If I hear of anything super exciting I will let you know!

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't the job. Don't worry something will turn up. It took me 9 months to find the job I have now....

Um here's something you could try to do for his homecoming. The people who couldn't make it to see matt over R&R. We made a poster board that had cut out red and blue stars on it and people wrote notes on those for him so he could read them. It was cute...
