    We applied for the loan for my car :D :D :D. Now that Jeremy has the second job we can afford to get a REAL family car. We also told our dealer to be on the lookout for the car that we want and he said he would find us one :D :D.

    Expedition here I come!

    We walked a whole block today. And has less than five "crouching startles." Oh, I took Dodge and Buzz along for moral support. It seemed to help. If they didn't care, she seemed to recover quicker.

    I've discovered something amazing....are you ready for this revelation? It's pretty intense...

    Here goes...

    If you don't act like a slob all week and just throw clothes and whatever all over when you're done it it. I mean, actually put stuff away...then on your day off it takes 20 minutes to clean, and not 4 hours. AMAZING!!!

    Dodge is actually really good on a walk... it is quite surprising! I realized a problem today though... I've done just a bit of clicker work with him, to the point that he understands it means treat and he did something right... so I'd click the Retriever and he'd look expectantly at me for a treat. That was hard... I probably won't take him out with her again for that reason alone!

    I just got a message from my sister in law (ex sister in law I guess since her and my brother are divorced, which sucks because I love her) on facebook asking about maybe having one of my neices come stay with us for a week in the summer. She really misses us and we really miss them so my sister in law thought it might be nice for her to come visit.

    Absolutely YES. She's 11 years old but Hannah ADORES her and she loves Hannah and she's such a good kid. WE would love to have her. Summer is a long way off but I'm really excited about this lol and I know Hannah is going to FLIP when I tell her (after we figure out logistics and it's a for sure thing of course)

    I lived through yesterday! And honestly it wasn't even that bad! I think switching jobs was one of the best things I've ever done. There are days that are tiring and taxing and the kids can be bad, but most of the time it's actually fun! And even on bad days there are kids that will run up and give you a hug and it makes it kind of worth it. :)

    OH yeah those days where you want to pull your hair out hahaha. At the end of September when we had the full moon? OYYYYYY lol it was constant "Please don't touch that, keep your hands to yourself, put that back, KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF, don't touch that, no put that back, STOP HITTING YOUR FRIENDS" LOL all day long. At the end of everyday we sing "It was a great day" but by the end of that day Teach and I were so exhausted that we told the kids we were going to WHISPER the song today LOL.

    But it's all worth it when the parents tell you how much they appreciate you and how much the kids love you and never stop talking about preschool and their teachers or when one of them is upset or crying and you give them a hug and suddenly they are all better. When they are excited to see you or when you see the really quiet ones start coming out of their shells. We have one little girl who is seriously the cutest thing ever. She looks like Annie with the bright orange curly hair and she's just ADORABLE. She is also super quiet but more and more she's coming out of her shell and yesterday her and Hannah were playing and laughing SO hard. It was so heartwarming. We have another little girl who is EXTREMELY shy. She won't talk to you, she won't eat her snack, she won't do much of anything but sit there and stare and look sad. But each week, more and more, she is starting to come out of her shell. She's even said a few words to me, played a few games, done her craft and I'm pretty sure I've even seen her laugh a couple of times and it just makes you feel really good

    This has nothing to do with children, but that full moon was AWFUL. My girls were absolutely horrible and even Murphy was starting stuff with my parent's dog.

    Good news for today: IT'S FRIDAY!!!!! I get to hang out with a friend I haven't seen in weeks. My mom is coming into town to go shopping (which hopefully won't turn into a vent because she's been driving me crazy recently). I get to go home today and cuddle my girl dogs because it's getting cold and they're super snuggly. Oh, and it's Friday. Did I mention that?

    Sparks, it really does make it all worth it! Today 5 different kids randomly ran up to me at different times just to hug me! And this one boy "A" pretty much took right to me the first day I started there and he follows me everywhere and holds my hand and sits in my lap and stuff and he's too cute. Another boy "D" that talks to me a lot asked me why I spent so much time with "A" and I said "I don't know he just comes up to me" and he said "Well you're always having fun with him, and not me" and I said "well we can have fun, too!" and he asked me if I had a boyfriend, lol!! It was so cute. I love these kids, even when they act up.
