Life gets wild sometimes!

I'm apparently getting older than I thought, because I now have a 4 year old! Ashton celebrated his birthday on Dec 10th and it seems insane that he is really that old (and about half my height lol).
And, then there's Kingston... My little 1 year old. He celebrated his birthday on Dec 6th. This has also flown by extremely fast. Where did the last year go?!? And, him and his brother couldn't be more opposite! I love that they are so different! (and hate it sometimes). Ashton has always been fairly quiet, very non-aggressive, just a little sweetheart from day one. Kingston has been our roller-coaster child. He has been cranky, loud, out of control, and lately showing aggressive tendencies at work (hair pulling, grabbing at other baby's faces, etc)! He's only 1! We're definitely going to have trouble with that boy! But, he can also be super cuddly, insanely cute (with those adorable blue eyes and huge smile), and so much fun! I love my boys to death! They are so opposite, but play so well together and tie our family together perfectly! They are definitely the icing on my cake!

So, now that I've poured my heart out about my little angels, let's get more serious and whiny lol. Things have been a bit hectic lately. I went a couple weeks with one contact, thus a constant headache making me super cranky. We also have been having a problem with our water pump in our car. So, sometimes the temperature sky-rockets, and sometimes the heater chooses not to work. Yay! NOT! Also, finals have been creeping up this week and last week. Our computer crashed last week, making finals quite difficult, considering I am an online student. Luckily, we were able to get a new computer and I made it work somehow. Now, I only have one final left (history) and the entire thing is extra credit, so even if I choose not to do it, I will pass the class. I did my Math final today and probably failed it or got a very low grade. It's seriously a foreign language to me... I studied, got frustrated, tried to study more, gave up, took the final, now wish I'd not given up on studying. But, oh well- what's done is done I guess! Jay turned in like 7 resumes to different places... hopefully something comes up, but also it would be pretty sad if it did, seeing as how we would undoubtedly have to move. He applied at places like Chicago, New York, Saudi Arabia, Alaska, etc- everywhere but Utah, because there aren't any flight jobs here. Nice career choice but also sucky. I've gotten fairly comfortable here in the last 4 1/2 years and I don't want to leave! So, we are keeping our heads high and our spirits strong to get through life lately and it'll pay off hopefully!

Big changes in life...

Well the horrible has hit... Jason's couple of students he had have now run out of money, meaning he is out of work for the most part. UGH! Although a baby would have been a really great thing to add to our family right now, we are not going to try anytime soon. Thank you money problems!!! So, after much deliberation, I have decided to officially submit my candidacy for Team Lead position at work (again). I was Team Lead there for about a year and a few months just before I got pregnant with Kingston. I honestly don't mind the job at all. It puts me in a position of authority and I already know how to do all the necessary paperwork, scheduling, etc that go along with it. So, I think this will be a good thing. The hours will be great. I am currently working about 10 hours a week and this will put me at 32 hours a week. It will be hard to get back into that many hours, especially having another kid this go around, but I am excited to make more money. We're talking quadrupling my income. It still won't make up for Jason's but it will help a lot! So, I just have to wait until Tiffany says "yes" or "no" to it. She is conducting "interviews" in a week or two and, so far, I am the only one interested, so we'll see! Hopefully nobody else goes for it and it can be an easy process! Ah, the joys of life and money! One day we will dig out of our financial rut and be making big money- you know, when Jay hits 2,000 or 3,000 flight hours and can be an AirMed pilot (this is his goal). However, he is sitting at just under 900 hours right now, so it'll be a few years. Until then, we will hang on by our thread and keep deliberating when to expand our family. The only problem is that a month ago, I was anti-anymore kids. Now, I'm crazy baby hungry. A few months from now, I may turn the tables again and we may not ever have anymore. We'll see... if anyone reads this, I love you for it! I know I'm fairly boring and complain a lot, but I appreciate people who listen to me. xoxo Christy

Um, I looked in the mirror doing zumba today and realized I make a weird face while dancing. And, I have an annoying habit of chewing my gum while dancing or just letting my mouth hang out wide open lol. I wonder what everyone else thinks of it?!? For some reason, I get embarrassed and instead of smiling or trying to hide myself, I put on this strange face... there aren't even words to describe what it looks like. It's just weird!
