So I might be putting Juliana in Preschool. She used to be in daycare and once we had Bredun and new we couldn't afford both of them in daycare Taurus started working nights and we just ended daycare completly. It's expensive! So Preschool was out of the picture because of costs, but since Taurus is currently unemployed, I'm going to see if I can get assistance and hopefully it won't be so much. I got her a little book to start practicing all of her ABC's and not just the letters she knows from her name and mommy, daddy and Bredun's names. She's a smarty pants, but I think she still needs that interaction and "schooling" from someone else.

Other than that I go to court, for sure, on the 29th of this month. Next week!! We're going to be meeting with lawyers first about a new parenting plan, if moving is a "yes" for us. I feel good about it and that this is what we're supposed to be doing, it's just working out the details. Going from issues with this last parenting plan there may be things I will have to give up, which I'm not too happy about, but most of it would most likely be financial things and so I would "deal with it" to be able to move. Finacial as in, travel expenses, I would like to make it 50/50, but since I'm the one moving I might have to say I'd pay for it all. then there's other expenses like insurance and school that I could see him negotiating, but my thoughts on that are that if I give up him paying all but child support I would want to have sole legal custody, not just physical custody. So basically he would have no say on what choices I make in regards to schooling and health, but we'll see. So cross your fingers for me. I'm nervous, anxious, and scared all at the same time. I'll keep ya updated on how it goes though.

So today was kind of bitter sweet....more so bitter than anything really. We just got back from vacation last week, so this was our first week back to work and getting into routine of things. Taurus sells jewelry at a store that is within Macy's. Macy's ended up buying out that store and so they've been working on switching things over to Macy's. Come to find out today Taurus was supposed to sign a new hire for Macy's and didn't in time, therefore not giving him a job. They did NOTHING. The thing is he left his phone in Dallas and we just got it back on Friday. They apparently were calling him the past few days telling him to come in and sign this paper, however he didn't have his phone. Could they not have left a note to him when he worked Monday? Could they not think "hhmmm it goes to his voicemail everytime I call, maybe something wrong with his phone....I'll send a letter." NO. Ugh I'm mad. I don't care that he wasn't making really much of anything....but it was something, and something is better than nothing. He was going to look for another job anyway on my half day this coming week, but still. I just think they could have done something else when he came in there today. He came in 3 different times! ok ok I'm done. Maybe this was God's little push to let him know he really does need to fine another job RIGHT NOW, not just whenever he gets around to it.Pray that he can find something. Most likely it will have to be a grave yard shift, because daycare is too expensive and we have no family or friends that could watch the kiddos. Grave yard shift will be hard on him, but there isn't much around columbia, or any city most likely!

Well I just got done cleaning out my car and now I need to finish picking up the house. Doing laundry, picking up "stuff" a.k.a. "junk," and then taking a nap.

Ba da da da daaaa.... I'm lovin' it!

Have I ever told you that I love me some Dallas?? That is Dallas, Texas, and the weekend is approaching fast and I don't want it to. We were looking at renters and Real Estate books....dreaming mostly on the houses, but they have soooo much better prices for houses than MO. We were looking at 3 and 4 bedroom houses that were ranging in the mid $100,000 ranges. We saw some foreclosure houses, one in piticular that was 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath and all this other fancy stuff for only $111k.....ugh....nice. One day.....hopefully.

I should be going to meet with lawyers to discuss a new parenting plan and hopefully know for sure if/when we will be moving. Hopefully all this will be settled in the next month or two. Pray Pray PRAY that it all goes good and we reslove this. I feel at peace with it, and expect a "fight" over what will be finalized, but I still feel like this is where we are supposed to be and where God wants us to grow as a family.

Well we are off to some "natitorium" (sp?), indoor water park type of thing, with the kiddos and then off to do some more fun and relaxing things before we head out Sunday morning.
