It just didn't work out. They weren't willing to be flexible with my schedule anymore and were scheduling me for more days than I wanted, so I was pretty much forced to quit. I'm happy though. The extra money was nice, but we don't need to have it. I think I'll take a break for the summer and then re-evaluate if I want to work another part time job.
I missed posting the weekly menu, I need to start doing it again. Maybe I'll do it Monday.
I took the picture on time, but I'm just late posting it. Here is the backside of our backyard over four years.
This year the hollyhocks didn't come back quite as strong. Some bug was eating them last year. I'm just hoping the bug doesn't come back again. It's also funny to notice that each year I've done something different with the stepping stones/rocks. It's hard to weed around them and this year I think I just don't want them at all.
The rose bush at the very end of the strip is all in yellow blooms right now. It's very pretty.
I've lately been thinking about wanting to use our GPS somehow for hikes or something fun. I've thought about geocaching, but didn't know anything about it and thought it was too hard to do. Until... I read this article in True North Parenting (a local magazine). It explained it all and said to go to www.geocaching.com to find caches. So I logged in today while Jackson was taking a nap and found that there is a cache just down the road, 0.2 miles away. It's crazy, I would never have thought that. I just thought they were all out in the forest or something. So now I'm totally into it and excited to start. I've entered some into our GPS, so maybe tomorrow I can go look for one.
My Dad took these while we were visiting them this last week. Jackon's newest favorite item are keys, any keys. I need to find some old keys that don't work and wouldn't be a big deal if he lost them somewhere.
This weekend I went to see my family and went to my cousin's college graduation party. I was told I've been slacking with sharing pictures of Jackson. So here is a pic of him at the park while we were over there. My dad took it. I'll try to post some more that my dad took tomorrow. I was also told they'd rather see pictures of Jackson than what we are eating for dinner, but too bad! I didn't do the menu this week, but I'll be posting the menu Sunday for next week. Posting our menu here has been working pretty good for me. It keeps me accountable and makes me do the menu, which makes me plan groceries better and makes me cook actual dinners.
