I am a Domestic Goddess!

I have canned!! Thats right, you did not miss-read. I have become quite the domesticatic women. A few weeks ago I canned green beans with my aunt. Granted, I just assisted her with it.... but this past week on Thursday and Friday, I canned pears and peaches all by myself!

I know, I know.... its not that hard. But for the first time I did it all alone and I am very pleased.

Here is a picture of my beautiful canned goods!!

It's only just begun....

sitting here

I am sitting at the front desk here at Telos. I dont mind sitting here doing nothing. It is a nice change from working with the boys which can be like hearding cats. Adam and I had a friend over last night for dinner and it was a lot of fun. Adam really likes working with him and I thought he was really funny. So...yeah. I am so excited for the Family reunion coming up! We have to go buy a tent, sleeping bags and sleeping pads still but we are very excited about it.
I am getting over a wicked cold right now and am looking forward to my day off tomorrow.

So... I just had an interview with my boss. He offered me the supervisor position of the mon, tues, sat afternoon shift. Which means that I will work 2-10pm. I kinda like that. I get to do some seriously fun activities with all the boys. That also means that I need to get better at consequencing the boys at the spur of the moment. I am making a list of things to get training on before I officially start the position. I also get health benefits and a $2 raise. I am telling you all this before I even tell Adam only because I cant really talk about it over the phone right now! I will keep you all posted about how it goes.
Adam got a $2 raise too. He was totally surprised. He has never had a job where they actually gave positive feedback to employees. They have told him that they recognize his hard work and willingness to learn. Finally an employer that sees how hard he works!!
