Some Random Thoughts

It's 11:30 at night and Jason is on his way home from work. I've been keeping myself busy with little projects around the house, like painting this mirror of mine from gold to pewter silver and finishing a puzzle that I had started with my in-laws while they were in town. (both of which I included pictures of). Other than that, things are pretty slow. I've really gotten out of my routine and have developed a horrible habit of sleeping in pretty late - like 12 noon! I guess its justified since Jason and I stay up till 2 or 3am every evening when he gets home from work. He's naturally a night owl and is quickly converting me to one as well.

But that all may change fairly soon since I've been interviewing with a couple different companies in downtown Nashville. The first position is for a reservationist/sales & marketing assistant position with Mortons part-time, with great hours though the pay isn't the best. The second position that I'm also interviewing for is with a huge law firm as a legal secretary. The pay is much better than Mortons, but with it will come regular business hours, 2 lawyers to assist and a state Senator when he's in town 5 months of the year and a very strict dress code (my least favorite part). Those of you that know me well, I'm a jeans and tee-shirt kinda gal. :-) I've interviewed with Mortons twice and tomorrow will be my second interview with the law firm, Adams & Reese/Stokes and Bartholomew. I think both places like me, I just have to decide between the two and its really quite a hard decision. I will say that a huge motivating factor is that we would really like to get out of debt asap so we can buy a house, so with me working a good-paying job would really help us out.

Another update I can give you is that Josh Brooks, Billy & Bettie's grandson that was critically injured in the car accident a couple weeks ago, seems to be doing better. Jason was visiting him quite a bit until his mom had to give him a fake identity in the hospital after an unfortunate event with a nosy and insensitive reporter who tried to conduct an interview with Joshua in his room. Since then, he is only allowed to have immediate family visit him. But from what we know, he is off the respirator 100% now and when Jason had visited him once last week, he actually recognized Jason and said his name, which was really exciting.

One final pic I've added is of my crazy sisters. I love this picture and had to add it, because I miss them a lot right now and this picture makes me smile. Yes, that would be Kris administering some discipline to Kati :-)
