Good evening!! I totally forgot to chose the winner of the giveaway I was having. Today was such a crazy day. It started at 6:15am. I woke, got all the kids up, fed, and dressed. Tony has been having an ear infection for over a week and since he has no insurance he has been putting it off. Well he couldn't take it anymore so we took him to the urgent care. Dropped him off, dropped Nicki off at school, and headed back to the urgent care to keep him company. He was in and out in an hour and whatever they did almost instantly relieved his pain.......$300 later. YIKES!! I had to leave him with the kids because I had to be in Leesburg, VA (an hour or so from where I lived) at 10am for my first ever job interview (for an accounting position). Well everything was going great and about 10 miles away I heard on the radio there was a tractor trailer with a blown tire which caused traffic to do go to one lane. I had no idea where that was at in comparison to where I needed to be (I don't go out to Leesburg very much, well never) so I crossed my fingers it was well after my exit. OOOOOOhhhhhh no, 8 miles from my exit it was stopped traffic. I had 15 minutes to get to my interview. I call Tony, almost in tears because I was going to be late. I then called the HR lady and told her I would be late and she totally understood, she said several of their employees hadn't showed up yet. I ended up arriving 30 min late. Everyone was super friendly. I thought the interview was going really well, but who knows. I then had to rush back home so Tony could leave for work.

I am not too optimistic this job will work out. It is part time during the day which is great but to drive an hour each way, pay for daycare, and the gas may end up not being financially right for our situation. So although it was an awesome experience, I will not be heartbroken if I don't get the job.

WOW, so anywho, let's announce a winner already......
