So I'm thinking...

I need something cool up on top for my little blog title. I see everyone has one and I don't know how they do it. So I think I'm going to do a little cut and pasting...a little scanning and see if I can get something cool up there. BUT...any ideas are welcome. :) I'm just digi dumb and know I couldn't do anything on the computer.

Sooooo...the whole job thing. We have decided NOT to do it. I know I know...I've been struggling with the whole...is this a sign from God thing? But basically here is the run down. All my married life I've had to budget...we've had to budget in everything from groceries, fuel, new socks, etc. We've always struggled financially...just barely making ends meet. And it sucks. 6 months ago if they would have offered Shawn that wage we would have moved...no questions asked. As it wouldn't have been any different than what we were doing here...just scraping by. But now....now Shawn is making some good money and we have extra and I am able to go to the grocery store without mentally adding up my groceries. And I bought Mathew a new pair of sandals last week without going through the checkbook to make sure we had the extra money to spare. We are not struggling...we are living really great. For the first time in our lives. And I'm being selfish...but it's REALLY nice. So there's our decision...unless they really wow him. Shawn is still going to go talk with them as he has to take the boys to my parents anyway (they are spending a week with my folks!). We'll see...but at this point Shawn and I are in agreement..that it's really nice. We even went out to dinner..just the two of us and dropped the boys off at the drop in childcare center for an hour. :) Before...never would have been able to...or would have had to set money aside just to have that luxury. *sigh*

Alrighty...I gotta get to work...have a great day!

I know how to make a topper for you! It's kind of like digi scrappin and it's simple, but took me lots of playing. Shoot me an email. I should be online all day tomorrow...too much work to do. I also understand your point on the job. Maybe he will be wowed. Would be fun to have another hard core crafter here.

I saw you sketch interpretation over at So sketchy and just loved it, so I had to stop ny.

I have no idea how to do a header for my blog either, lol. Mine is empty too!

Good luck with the job thing, tough making decisions...

I wouldn't want to live in a very very small town again like where I grew up, but it may be the right choice for you if that enables you to stay home with your children (and that's your desire of course!) The downside of small-town life if that while it's great for LITTLE kids, teenagers get B-O-R-E-D without movies, restaurants, bowling, shopping malls, church activities. Just passing on my thoughts, not any judgement!!! Good luck to you!
