I almost forgot..... THEY DID SOMETHING AT OUR HOUSE TODAY!! They brought dirt in and got all of the plumbing stubbed out! YES! Just one step closer to pouring the slab which should be done by Friday! I am super happy and excited. OH and I am going to be doing a book on of all of the pictures I take of the progress on our home. It's so cute and I know I couldnt make a scrapbook that is that nice! Stay tuned for more home updates! :)

Just Thinking....

Well, as it is for most people, times are hard as far as money goes. Wayne is in the process of finding a new teaching job and that really scares me. We are used to his salary now and know that a lot of schools just dont pay the same as Vidor. We are hoping he will find something that pays the same or more but we just dont know. If my prayers are answered and it's God's will for him to work somewhere that his pay would increase that would be amazing, but if it isnt and God has another path for us, I am going to have to seriously think of ways to save us money. We are about to have a mortgage for the first time and all the expences that come along with owning a home and I just want to live comfortably! I have thought of so many things such as coupons, sales, buying in bulk, making my own laundry detergent, a garden, limiting our eating out to a couple of times a month, and lots more. I really want to try to do this not only to save money, but to feel like I get the most out of Wayne's salary. I do work. I clean houses part-time and that does provide a pretty good income for us, but I do not want to rely on that. But, I am really going to leave all of this up to God and know that he will guide me to making great choices for our family! :)

It's Almost Summer :)

I really really love summer. Mostly because I get to spend lots and lots of time with my husband and daughter! Eden is kind of sad for kindergarten to end because she loves her teacher and loves her friends, expecially Garrett! LOL! For some reason she is really drawn to having boy friends instead of girl friends. Ohh well, it's ok for right now! :) I really hope that she gets another good group of kids in her class again next year. They really all get along so well.

Now for a house update... Well... There is nothing to update. Because, THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING FOR OVER A WEEK! AHHHHHHHHHHHH! I am beyond angry, dissapointed, frustrated, and sad. No one can ever ever give a correct answer to any of our questions and that's even if they call us back. We showed up yesterday to sign some one our change request for somethings we added and to pick out paint colors and our sales person wasnt even there. We didn't get to do that so we have to drive back yet again. Everyday the lead contractor will day this and this will get done today and when we go by, NOTHING. There is always an excuse or they tell us it will get done tomorrow and it just dosent happen. My husband just keeps telling me to have patients, but at what point do you stop having it and realize that something needs to be done? Ok, Im done! LOL

I am off to a Graduation party for Ben and then later on tonight I have a bachelorette party for a friend. That should be fun! :)

Ohh, I am a slacker!

Yes, I know, I really should do this more often. Sorry! Let's see, what's new??? Well, they started on our house. They started and now have just kinda stopped. Always some kind of excuse! If I could go back now and do this all over again, we would just buy a house and not build one. Even though I really like being able to make everything just to our liking, I do not like having to wait for others to get stuff done. I have a sinking feeling that we are getting ripped off, but we will just see. I am trying to stay positive.

On another note, Eden only have 7 days of Kindergarten left! I can't believe this. She is getting so big. She really has learned a lot this year and I really loved her teacher. On to 1st grade. We are so proud of your daughter!

To celebrate the end of the school year for Wayne and Eden we are going to Galveston Memorial Day weekend to go to schlitterbahn. YAY! We all love water parks and couldnt be more excited. Hopefully some of our friends and family can come too! We are also trying to decide if we are going to go on a summer vacation. If we do it will have to be somewhere close due to the construction on our home we have to be near by just incase! I love summer and we deffinatly want to make this one a memorable one.

As for me, I am now not working full-time and am running a cleaning business part-time. I clean everyday but tuesdays, so that's kinda my day off. Even when I am off I feel so bad not doing something or bringing in income for our family! But, I love it and it has really allowed me to see Eden a lot more. Once our home is done I cant wait to be able to cook more and oraganize and with me only working max 4 hours a day, it will really help me be able to do that. :)

OH and married life is really amazing and sweet and just a dream for me. Wayne really has shown me what forever feels like! I love you Wayne Hanks!
