Travel Log 9-8: And the New Winner is......

Rue!!!! So shoot me a line and I'll get them shipped out to you!
     In other news it's been a really good week. My best friend is coming to visit for halloween, the weather has been awesome and overcast/rainy, Hubby is doing great at his new job, and the munchkins are starting to get used to me being home with them. Despite that fact that only about an eighth of my brain functions before 10am I've hammered out a routine for getting the older kids to school and the younger ones up and fed, so I feel like a domestic champion!
    On top of that, this weekend I used the mad money I had saved up and bought myself some books I have been dying to have off of Amazon. And they got here today!!!
    I know a lot of people look down on llewellyn's, but I got their witch's calendar for this year and next year, as well as their spell-a-day almanac and can say that so far I really like them. The almanacs are an interesting blend of multiple personalities, paths, and insight and I like the variety. The calendar's, while not heavy on my preferred style of artwork, do have all the high points that I always forget to mark on mundane calendars already filled in for me.
      So yeah, things are on a definite upswing and I am thoroughly basking in it!

Travel Log 9-7: Oh What a Tangled Web.....

It has been a bit like a hurricane over here in this little corner of astral space. A lot of changes have been happening so quickly it has pretty much knocked me off of the web for a while.
  Change number one is that my hubby has finally landed what appears to be the perfect engineering position! It pays well above our expectations and is a solid, stable, family- owned and operated company where he can stay for quite some time.
   Change number 2 is that I am now a stay at home mom again. While there was some massive negativity from the management when I left the dealership I worked for (in fact they insisted on firing me instead of accepting my resignation), I am really happy to be home with my munchkins full time again. But the down side to be home and not bone tired, dragging myself to the bed, is that I got a chance to take a good look at the level of housekeeping my dear hubby had been maintaining. Yeeeeeaaaaah. I almost screamed. I gagged when scrubbing out the sink. I swear there was the scree scree scree of psycho music in the back ground when I got to the bathroom. It was pure horror....
    And now it's all clean and shiny. Some of the fixtures have been replaced because they were lost causes in my book. And now I am starting my domestic bliss, and the joys of potty training for the squishie man.

Oh and the winner of my giveaway hasn't responded, so I"ll be drawing another name out of the hat tonight!
