So I decided to get a job. I applied for a dealing job about three weeks ago, and last friday they  called me and asked if I could come in for an interview. Of course I could! So last Saturday I showed up at the casino (not the same one I used to work at), in a white shirt, black skirt, pantyhose, and high heels. I wore make-up (more than usual), and my hair looked fabulous.
I talked to an assistant director for awhile. He asked me lots of questions about my dealing past. Then I actually had to go and deal! For the first time in almost four years! It was like I had never been away from there. It all came back. I had been practicing a little bit at home just in case. After that we went and sat down, and he offered me the job! It is parttime, swing shift. I told him I like to work two days a week and holidays.

I am actually very excited about this! I feel like I am getting some me-time even though I will be working. To get out and get some adult conversation.
Why am I doing this even though I have a "job" already? Easy. To help out with the finances. We want to pay off the van fast. Having a car payment again after years of not having one is kind of painful. If possible, we'd like to pay it off within a year. We also like to pay some other bills too. Dealing is easy and fast money. I am glad that I can help the family out by doing it.
The plan is for me to work a couple of years. I definitely don't want to do it forever. I don't want to miss out on holidays when they get older. I feel ok doing it now when they are little, because they won't remember it later on. that is the big news! Not sure when I am going to start yet. I am waiting to hear back from human resources. I have to apply for a police card, take a drug test, and sign papers. Oh, I go on an orientation at my new work place!

You may also wonder why I didn't apply back at my old job. They aren't hiring any dealers right now, and even if they did, I wouldn't want to go back there. I feel like it's a bit of a challenge to start somewhere new. To see and learn new things. It would be very easy to go back to my old place.
Have a great day!

Thanksgiving is over.

Gosh. I wrote about my weightloss success in the previous post, and today I am writing the opposite. Ugh. Thanksgiving was yesterday, and with it came all the delicious food. It is really not my favorite holiday, but I do enjoy a good meal. I made the most delicious mashed potatoes. Tried a new recipe. French mashed potatoes. With lots and lots of butter, and goat cheese and chives in it. Oh my goodness! Dr Fuhrman would not approve of that. And pumpkin pie, and the yummy pumpkin bread that Amelia and I baked....the list goes on and on....
Today it feels like I gained 10 lbs. It could be that I got my period too of course. (TMI). I am writing a list for the grocery store right now while looking in Fuhrmans cookbook. I have to eat healthy from now on! I was doing so good!
So today its friday, Black Friday, I have heard that this American phenomenon has spread to Europe, and Sweden now. Crazy, I have been out shopping in the past, but I will definitely not go out today. Not with three kids. No way. Insane. I am going to the grocery store though. Hoping that people still have lots of food at home, so they dont need to go there. Wish me luck! :D
This weekend we are going to decorate for Christmas! Exciting! Advent 1st is on Sunday, so I need to be prepped for that. We are not getting a tree this weekend though, we are getting it next weekend instead. Amelia is super excited to get it. She saw that the neighbors already has decorated their front porch, so I told her we are doing it too.

Well, going to write one more post, and finish my list.

Happy Halloween!

My favorite holiday is here! We are taking Amelia trick or treating at the Automobile museum. It's nice to be able to do it indoors. Its supposed to snow here. 

We've carved five pumpkins this week. They all turned out so good! Amelia did two of her own.
