A Day Off Well Spent

I know I am VERY late in posting this but i've been BUSY!

I don't get many true days off. Normally if I'm off at one job, I'm working at the other. And whenever I do get a day off, its just Rickey, me and the 2 little ones..Jason and Chad are always in school.
Well not on this day--
Started off the morning quite invigoratingly! wink, wink!! (is that even a word?) Anyways..sat around watchin tv and monsters inc with juju. After the kids had their mid-morning snack, Rickey asked me if I wanted to go to the park, and if I did then I needed to get ready. I assumed it was gonna be just the 2 of us with the 2 little ones, but I hear him tell Jason and Chad to hurry up and get dressed or they weren't going. I was excited because the all 6 of us don't really go anywhere all together anymore. Its always a space issue...that and someone is always grounded. We piled into the trailblazer and made our way to the duck pond. It was windy out but not too bad. We got outta the truck and there were geese everywhere! I swear there were like 15 of them. They were just a honking away! Juju was so excited! He wanted to follow them everywhere! Normally its just me, Rickey, juju, and xa when we come to the park. And juju runs around but not like really playin on anything. Well not today--Juju wanted to play and jump on everything because Jason and Chad were jumping on everything. I could tell Rickey was having fun too. Juju even went down the big orange slide with Chad. Not just one time like he normally does with me, but like 3, 4, maybe even 5 times with Chad. We all ahd a GREAT time! All the boys were exhausted when we left. Juju of course did not want to leave...had a fit like he always does. Poor baby--he was so tired.

2 Drive A Truck or Not

So my hubby has been on the grind the past week and a half tryna find a job here locally. Thursday he applied for this trucking company. He was told right away that he would need to call some guy the next day at 10am. Later that afternoon his cel phone rings from a Shreveport number. It turns out to be Sam's Town hotel and casino asking to meet with him on monday at 3pm. He couldn't be happier-finally after almost 2 weeks of applying for job after job he gets his first callback. It was so exciting to see the look on his face when he told me that they wanted to meet with him.
Well of course he still had to call the trucking company back, which he did by the way. And was almost immediately told that he could start this coming monday if he wanted to. Boy that was quick! Anyways he would be going to truck driving in Dallas. And then once thats over he would be on the road 15 days, then 3 days home. Because they would be paying for him to go to truck driving school, he would have to sign a contract to remain with the company for one year. ONE YEAR! He's not too sure about it for the simple fact that he would be away from the boys for so long. And plus, we've got all these plans to fix up the house the way we want it. How are we supposed to do that if he's gone all the time?
Well he's got a big decision to make. To drive a truck or not, that is the question?
