So...I had decided to "apply" for a cheerleading coach position at my church. I filled out the application form...and yes there really was an application form. I submitted it today...and viola! I am now going to be a cheerleading coach for St. Patrick Catholic School. I have no freakin idea what grade I'll be getting or anything like that, but on a dreary Tuesday when I feel sicky what great news! So I've been doing some research online for everything from easy cheers to more complicated. I kind of hope I get the little ones, but it could be really fun if I had the older girls too. Lots of gym time, and tumbling classes and all that fun stuff! My husband was really excited for me, but poor guy has no idea what he's gotten himself into! Once I know more information I'll let you know. That's really all I have to say now, I've gotta get back to work....but I'll be back this week to talk Derby!! TTFN!!

It's Been A While....

Hello Everyone! It has been a while since I last blogged. Forgive me, but I have had T-O-N-S going on. We got moved into the house and are slowly but surely settling in. The kitchen is good to go, guest bedroom is good to go, office is slowly but surely on its way, family room and dining room are good to go, the loft looks like it's good to go, but the room is so big I think we might need some more furniture. :) The bedroom is a disaster. LOL. It seems that everytime we bring anything into the house and we don't know what to do with it...it goes into the bedroom. Now don't get me wrong, it is definitely cleaner than our bedroom at the old house, my goal for this new house is "Cleanliness next to Godliness" or something like that. :)

Easter was last weekend. The weekend began at noon on Friday for me. I left work and picked up a girlfriend, we stopped by Target just to browse...$40 later we left there and went back to our house to wait for the DirecTV guy. He got there about 2:00ish.....and left at 7:45 after we had already eaten dinner. IT WAS INSANE! Not to mention it was like a monsoon outside with all this rain, and the jackhole tracked mud into my new house on my new tile and new carpet! I was fit to be tied...but at least now we have TV and I can watch all of my shows. We also FINALLY got a DVR. Let me tell you how exciting it is to have a DVR. My husband and I went through and picked out all the shows we like to watch and set them up to record. So we have a ton of random TV shows on there already including but not limited to Jon & Kate + 8, My Wife & Kids, 90210, Desperate Housewives, Biggest Loser, Dancing with the Stars, and I'm sure we'll eventually get some History Channel shows and Discover Channel shows on there as well. :) The thing I like about DirecTV DVR vs Insight DVR....when you're watching a pre-recorded show and you fast forward through the commercials, naturally your "mind" is going to be slightly faster than your hand on the remote....well with DirecTV, when you stop the fast forwarding once you see a character from the show, it takes you back to the end of the previous commercial so you don't miss a thing! IT'S FANTASTIC!!! So...back to Easter Weekend. We had some friends over Friday night and just ordered pizza and hung out. Saturday I went with another one of my girlfriends to be fitted for her Wedding Dress. She looked absolutely amazing...and thinking about it makes me cry. ;) After that we ran a couple of errands, and then back home I went to get the house cleaned up for Easter. My h usband had been out with one of his friends that afternoon, and Saturday night we stayed in and went to bed early. Easter morning began with us getting up at 3:45AM to be at Easter Vigil by 5. Our cousin went through RCIA this year, and so naturally we all wanted to be there to support her...I just didn't know when we signed up it would mean being supportive so early in the morning. :) After Easter Vigil we went back to our house to continue to straiten up and then my Aunt, parents, and brother and his fiance came over to see the house. They all gave us their seal of approval. After checking out the house and watching my Aunt's dvd of their new Florida condo we left for brunch. Brunch was ok. Nothing spectacular or out of the ordinary...just ok. After brunch we headed back to my parents house and just hung out the rest of the afternoon. We were home and in bed really early...but apparently that didn't matter on Monday because it was like the worst day ever. Talk about tired. :) So, thats all I have to say for now. Hope all is well with you, and I"ll talk to you soon!

We're FINALLY in the new house. It's amazing. Everything went great over the weekend. We had some friends and family come and help us move on Saturday, and then people stopped by all day on Sunday to visit and check the place out. The paint is up, and my brother-in-law came over and hung up some photos around the house and helped my husband to organize and rearrange furniture. Our house is so incredibly perfect. I've never been happier. :) Now if only we had a baby....

WE CLOSED ON THE HOUSE! It's official...we are homeowners again, and in debt to our eyeballs! Very exciting. I am here at work, and my husband and father (God love 'em) are moving things over, getting organized, getting the washer/dryer, and making sure everything is ready for tomorrow. MOVING DAY! :)

The painters are there getting some color put on the walls. I can't wait to go back after work...it won't even look like the same house I'll bet! This morning we went for the final walk through, and just even having the appliances all in made a world of difference in how the kitchen looked. It's so hard to believe it's finally ours. We'll FINALLY be in our own home. It's going to take some adjusting thats for sure. For one thing...DirecTV couldn't fit us into their schedule until next Friday! So we'll be doing a lot of unpacking and talking to each other this week I guess. haha! Poor Geoffy.

Well, I'm going to get back to work...just wanted to give you an update on the goings on. :) Hope all is well. Talk to you later!!
