life changes!

March 20, 2009

after 7 long months of Scot being technically unemployed, he was offered a (great) job yesterday! i am so proud of him. he really wanted this position and made it happen. he will be working for Goodwill as Lead Landscaper. the really cool thing about the position is that it’s a brand new division of Goodwill, so he is not only the lead, but the first person hired for that job and new part of the company. when he first told me about the job i was pretty confused – how can you landscape for Goodwill? all of the Goodwill stores i’ve ever seen are in stripmalls and just have sidewalks in front, maybe a few little trees in some squares of bark. turns out he’ll be traveling to many of the Goodwills in Wa and their further plan is to contract out to commercial companies. the amazing news is that in 90 days, we will all have insurance for the first time as a family! Scot hasn’t had insurance in years and right now we are not insured at all. scary times. another great thing is that Goodwill is in a great place – they have the money right now to start a new division, where other companies are laying off and cutting back. during hard economic times, people who otherwise would not shop at Goodwill do, helping their business.

this means BIG changes in our house. since Harper was born, we have been very spoiled. since Scot was working for himself, he set his own hours and we had a lot of time together. he will be working monday-friday at this job and saturdays doing his own clients so i don’t have to get a job. it’s going to be hard, but i am so proud of him and really admire his determination to support our family. i plan on finding some mommy and baby groups, and possibly a baby yoga class to fill up my weeks. i figure if i have things to do it will be easier. plus, with emily having her baby next month (!) i’ll be super busy hanging out with them since she’ll be off work for 10 weeks!

the h monster is in full hilarity mode these days. this week she found her “D” noise, and reaaaally likes it. all day yesterday and all day so far today all she’s doing is “dadadadadadada”. precious. the best part is that she changes the pitch so a lot of it sounds like questions. it’s awesome. also this week she has started a semi-strange leg thing where she pulls both her legs up and them SLAMS them down. i’m afraid that one of these days she’s going to hurt herself because she does it so hard. last night when i put her down, i could hear her banging her legs against the matress for about 5 minutes before she fell asleep. little weirdo. my new obsession is her hilarious hair patch on top. she has a square section of hair on top of her head that is sort of like a mohawk, it’s way thicker than the sides. precious little monkey.

side note to Mae: i have not forgotten about your email. i WILL find the time to write you back lady! shite, i helped name your kid… :D loves!

    I adore you and will continue to wait patiently, stalking your blog as per usual. You are a much more consistent blogger than me! Re: the leg slamming down thing, Piper has been doing this too. We finally figured it out this weekend: she’s learned that when she kicks while lying in the Pack n play her animal “friends” move. So now, she kicks everywhere, even in places/things without any hanging “friends”. (Which isn’t much, I think almost everything made for babies comes with innocent animals suspended from above.) The harder she kicks, the more movement. Hence the slamming. We think.
