Happy Birthday, America!

Yep, it's July 4th. Time sure flies when you're having fun!

I have been quite lax in updating my blog, and I totally apologize. I haven't been able to come up with the time to sit and type my thoughts or happenings. I figured I might as well take the time now though, since I can. So, what has been going on? Let me give you a brief recap.

In May, Joe started working for a new company. He's doing basically the same thing he did before, but for a different company. They went live a couple of days ago, so I haven't seen all that much of him lately. It's pretty sad, but I know it has to be done. He's not happy, and has been threatening to quit. I just hope that he can find something if he does. This economy is not good for jobs.

Speaking of jobs, I have been offered a full time position at macys. It's been several years since I've had a full time job with benefits! I'm hoping that I'll still be able to sub a little. I'd miss seeing my friends at school. Maybe someday I'll get to go back to subbing part time and working at macys part time, but for now I'll be found in the fine jewelry department 38.5 hours a week.

I finished my scrapbook room. I'm quite happy-it's a nice blue color, and this week I worked in there on my book. It was awesome! Hopefully I'll be able to spend more time in there. I do need to clean up the stuff I put in the basement when I was cleaning out the room though. I need to find homes for the pictures that were in the closet and the other random stuff that was there. I tried to sell some of my old scrapbooking stuff at a yard sale and it didn't sell. I can't decided if I should put it on ebay or not. Maybe I will, who knows.

I have essentially been gluten-free now for an entire year. I still have the occasional brownie at Chik-Fil-A, and I have some food I shouldn't, but for the most part I do without. I'm hoping that as time goes on I'll be able to start cooking more of my own food. I really miss cookies! :)

Well, that's the update for now. It's fairly late and I'm tired. Have a great holiday weekend everyone!
