Today is officially the first Saturday Soren has had to work. It looks like busy season is upon us and the leisure of a five day work week gone. We knew this was coming and have heard all the horror stories of 60-80 work weeks, but so far we have been somewhat shielded. But the poor guy has 4 clients to get work done on today and its looking like it will take all day. It doesn't help that he has to wear business/sunday attire permenantly now. Monday through Saturday and then church meetings all day Sunday. At least that is what he thought this morning until he got to work and found everyone else in jeans. What a bummer. We ironed a shirt and everything.
I don't mind too much except that I no longer feel like I have Saturdays either. The only thing that distinguishes my days is that Monday through Friday I entertain myself and then I can a least count on someone else being home on Saturdays, even if he is studying. I think I will go eat lunch with him today which will be nice, but otherwise my activities today are pretty up in the air.
Good news to report though. I got a call from Baby Gap yesterday for an interview next week. Out of the 300,000+ jobs I have applied for that might be like the fourth call back. I take that as a good sign. This past week I have been fortunate to have a temporary job working on apartment turnovers at another complex. My neighbor and I have been making $15/hour to put contact paper in cupboards, paint rooms, and clean. It has been a lot more physically demanding than I would have expected, but the paycheck will be nice. It will help cover the cost of nursery decorations and birthing classes.
Speaking of birthing, the baby is still alive and well. He kicks A LOT and definitely doesn't let us forget he is around. We are still on schedule for a May 11 arrival and doing well. I can tell he is starting to slow me down a little more though. I'm sure that will only worsen. No names yet.
