Our Future New Home

We are moving! The house we are currently renting is being foreclosed on December 23rd. So we have to move. We love our ward and didn't want to move out of it. We have been praying we would find a house we could afford to rent in our ward. And our prayers have been answered!

We were at our Ward party and our friend Heather mentioned she was going to rent out her house, I asked how much and it was not in our budget. She then told me about this house! The family used to live in our ward and due to a job opportunity they moved and rented out their house. Their current tenants gave notice and are moving out at the end of this month! And it is in our budget!! We get to slowly move in after December 10th. We can't afford to pay utilities on 2 houses so it might be a fast move in and not so much a slow one.

The back yard is HUGE! We want to get a big fire pit and some backyard furniture. Our bedroom is the blue room. We will be painting it to match the rest of the house. Brown and Pink don't look good with blue :(

How going to the Movies is Heavenly!

David and I like to splurge once and a while and go to the movies. We usually go to a Regal Cinema down the street from us. I have been a Regal Cinema club member for years now and have earned free popcorn, movies and drinks numerous times.

Several friends told us we should check out the new AMC Theater's located in Lakewood. Lakewood is the next town over and is where WalMart is located. So we decided to check it out and go see the new Footloose movie. We paid for our tickets and the gentleman asked if we would like to become a AMC club member. I said yes if it is free like the Regal Club. He informed us that it is not free, it is $12 but they were having a special making it only $6! We declined and told him that we live closer to the Tacoma theaters and we were just in the neighborhood. He said okay but he guaranteed he would see us after the movie to sign up. I thought that was very arrogant of him but, hey he is confident in his job.

Once we walked into the theater we were SOLD! The seats are not seats but leather recliners!! You push a button and can lay almost flat if you want to! They are big and oh so comfortable! Even when you have your foot rest fully extended people can walk past you if need be without even touching you! It is heaven! I think David would agree that we could watch a 6 hour movie in that theater sitting in those recliners!
(David has a white aura lol!)

The arrogant theater gentleman was right. . . we joined the club!!!

Happy Birthday David!

David turned 29 on Monday! So now we are the same age! We have been celebrating all month. I got him a laptop computer and other gifts which he got as they arrived. On Monday we went to see The Three Musketeers in 3D! Then we went to dinner at Black Angus. David had top sirloin, loaded baked potato, green beans with bacon. I had prime rib, crab legs, garlic mashed potatoes, broccoli with Parmesan cheese.

The movie was great and the food was good. However, I will be taking David to Jak's in Issaquah the next time we want to celebrate by having a nice steak. No one makes a better steak in my opinion!

I am looking forward to spending more special occasions together! Life is so much better when you spend it with someone you love and loves you!

Thank you for your interest but we have chosen someone else!

I am so tired of being turned down for jobs. I had applied at Comcast Cable. I had made it through all 4 steps of the application process. I thought I did really well at the interview but apparently I didn't because I just got an email stating I was not chosen. To say I am disappointed is an understatement. Not only am I disappointed but I am scared beyond belief! Will I ever get a job? I just got notice yesterday that my unemployment will drop to $300 a week in 5 weeks. That is below minimum wage! We can't live off that! The only reason we are surviving now is because the house we are renting is in foreclosure so we are not paying rent. We can live here rent free until January 1st then we have to move.

I have been applying for jobs that pay $10 and up. I have yet to even get an interview. I am 1 of 600 people applying for 1 position. That is no exaggeration! I cannot stand on my feet for long periods of time so fast food and retail is out of the question. I have no idea what we are going to do or how we are going to survive. We will just have to have faith that the Lord will take care of us and continue to pray for employment. My heart goes out to people who have run out of unemployment all together and have nothing. I pray I do not become one of them!

New Glasses

David and I both got new glasses this weekend. I am still deciding if I like mine. Getting old sucks. What does that have to do with my new glasses you ask? Well with my old glasses that are rimless, I could look below my glasses to read. It seems the minute I turned 40 I could no longer see to read. Now I have these new, cute glasses however they have rims and I cannot look below the glasses to read and it is driving me nuts! I am too vane and to young to get bifocals!! But David looks hot in his glasses!

I want to start Blogging again!

I have wanted to start blogging again however I haven't because there is so much that has happened since I last blogged I felt overwhelmed. So instead of trying to get caught up I am just going to start from here!

The last job didn't work out. They laid me off after 3 months due to a decline in their business. So I am still unemployed. I do have a couple of leads on some jobs and advancing on the application process but I don't want to jinx anything so I am not going to talk or get excited about it yet.

Some of you know that I recently got married. . again. I became Mrs. David Lassabe on July 21st, 2011! It came as a shock to many of my friends because it seemed like it happened so fast. What many did not see or know is that David and I have been friends for a while. We met in May 2010 at a church service project. We hit it off and became friends. We started hanging out together, going to church activities , he would come over to my house once a week and take my trash to the curb and do other manly jobs around my house, we would rent movies together, he would come with me to run errands etc. We were seen together at most of our ward activities and at church. Many church members would ask me if we were dating. I of course told them no because we weren't. I would just tell them he was my substitute son. He is much younger than me and closer to my son's age then mine. I could not see my self dating him because of the age difference.

Gradually things started to change and we became close friends and then before you know it we decided to get married. He is my best friend and I cannot imagine my life without him. I feel like he has always been a part of my life. I love spending time with him. He makes doing even horrible things fun! We clean house together, go shopping (he loves to shop and I hate it!), dishes, yard work. No matter what the task he seems to have a positive outlook and finds ways to make it fun for us.

David loves me unconditionally and he treats me like a Queen! And this might come as a shock, he does not let me control him no matter how hard I try. I don't like that I am controlling and I do not do it on purpose. He really doesn't need to be controlled because he makes wise choices and we like most of the same things. He knows how to handle me and my controlling behavior as well as my mental illnesses! :^) When my brain tumor starts acting up or my heart attack comes on he knows just what to say and do to calm me down without making me feel crazy. He laughs later at the fact I am a hypochondriac.

When I am feeling down on myself he talks me up. He makes me a better person. He claims I make him a better person. I guess we are good for each other! I am counting down the days that we will be sealed together forever!

My first day at my new job!!

Today was my first official day at my new job. The weather last week was crazy and due to the weather and then Thanksgiving we all agreed it would be best for me to start today.

I think I am going to love this job as much if not more than I loved the last one. They are very similar in so many ways. I mostly just got acclimated to my surroundings today and filed out new employee paperwork. But I loved it!

I am looking forward to getting ramped up and becoming a productive asset to the company. What really made my day special is I got not one but two deliveries today! I am so lucky to have such an amazing friend. Joy'ce had flowers sent as well as a gift basket of edible goodies for me to share with the office. My marriage didn't work out but I gained one of the best friends in the world because of the marriage. Joy'ce has been such a blessing in my life and now I cannot imagine my life without her!
