Luckily I learned a lot about myself and I dyed my hair. With new hair comes a new attitude. ( and in a week or so will come new hair once again because my self hair dyeing skills are apparently really limited...should have left it to the professionals but my cheap self got the best of me).
I was also extremely blessed that with new hair came a new job as well. One I didn't see coming, and one I worked the least to get. In the past I have contacted managers and gone above and beyond to get an interview. This time I applied online on Monday, was called back in a couple of hours, interviewed on Tuesday, and was made an offer on Wednesday. I have never had such a wonderful experience with an HR department. The job is also in my hometown and where both my husband and I were born. It feels a wee bit sentimental to be working in my hometown. Like when I used to come back from college (pretty much every weekend because I was a homebody). It is still a night shift position, but it is only 3, 12 hour shifts and feels a lot more manageable. I am also going to work in L&D, Postpartum, Newborn Nursery, and Special Care Nursery, so I am ecstatic about the new learning opportunities, especially the special care nursery.
The new hair must really work for me because we also got a new rental. A house. So exciting. Not much more money that our current condo, but now I will have a garage and a garden next year...maybe even some mums this year! It is out in the burbs so it adds to the nostalgia of coming home. Life is changing really quickly, but I really feel God's hand guiding us forward. While it is a lot of change, it all feels so right.
So I will yet again try to reinforce some new habits, like blogging more than once a month. I am also going to tack on a million pictures to this post. Partly because I want to remember all of these times in our lives, and partly because I am not able to purchase a better camera until I prove to my husband that I use this one. Here's the proof baby, here's the proof.
Kim had an awesome bachelorette party!
Sisters, missing the other one.
We have some of the best friends and no better place to hang out than around a fire.
