During my walk yesterday I noticed some things I hadn't before. It was a beautiful fall day with the sun shining and a nice breeze. While walking I noticed the following:
-2 teenage lovers leening on a tree kissing.
-an older man sleeping upright on a bench.
-a young mother soaking up some sun on another park bench with her infant close by in a carriage.
-a motorcycle police officer reading his newspaper under a tree.
-parks employees standing near their truck.
Now I know that these things are not very exciting. They aren't even really interesting. I just enjoyed seeing so many people enjoying the day with me even if we wheren't doing anything together.

There really is nothing important in this posting. Just me talking about one of my many collections.
Oh check out my new find. Short Order Mom Blog. She's got some great, inexpensive & tastey receipes.

Things that have been said about it:
From this article on cnn.com http://www.cnn.com/2009/POLITICS/09/04/obama.schools/
Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty, a possible contender for the GOP's 2012 presidential nomination, said Friday the classroom is no place to show a video address from Obama. (YOU just lost MY vote)
"At a minimum it's disruptive. Number two, it's uninvited. And number three, if people would like to hear his message they can, on a voluntary basis, go to YouTube or some other source and get it. I don't think he needs to force it upon the nation's school children," he told reporters at the Minnesota State fair.
Florida GOP Chairman Jim Greer released a statement this week accusing Obama of using taxpayer money to "indoctrinate" children.
"As the father of four children, I am absolutely appalled that taxpayer dollars are being used to spread President Obama's socialist ideology," Greer said. ::insert eyeroll::
"The idea that school children across our nation will be forced to watch the president justify his plans ... is not only infuriating, but goes against beliefs of the majority of Americans, while bypassing American parents through an invasive abuse of power." (FORCED TO WATCH OUR PRESIDENT?)
You make me sick. He is our president. He is not trying to "brainwash" our children. Don't speak for me you ignorant POS. I AM the majority of Americans & I VOTE YES to this speech being viewed in schools by students!

I guess the powers that be felt bad for the Bean & made it stop raining right at 2pm. The sun sort of came out but it was mostly overcast & chilly for the remainder of the day. At least we wheren't being soaked & could hang on the deck.
By the time the party got under way we where all exhausted but we made due. We ate, sang happy birthday to bean, ate cake & opened gifts. It was nice that all our friends turned out & thats really what mattered.
We are especially thankful to Sean & Michelle for their help. If it wasn't for them none of it would of happened. I think I would of just sat on the floor & cried. Thank you guys!
Ohhhhh I didn't even mention the Turtle cake did I? Thats for another day.

So thats my boring mom update. Sophie is sleeping in her crib at daycare for naps & I'm proud of her.
Friday, April 24, 2009
Today she woke us up by smacking our faces. Back & forth, smack smack smack, over to daddy, smack smack smack. She is crawling and pulling herself up. She is walking & saying momma, dada. She scurries for the cat than grabs at her. She pulls toys out of her toybox. She throws them on the floor. She's eating three meals a day of all kinds of food. She giggles when you say in a semi loud voice "What are you doing?" She hates to sleep, she'd rather play. When she does she pulls her blanket up to her chin & snuggles it. She still has no teeth. She is tiny yet she makes faces as if she was an older child. She likes to observe things & not just jump right in. She has a smile that stops people in their tracks. She melts our hearts.
She's our bean & we love her more than life itself.

Being back to work is great. I get a break from the Bean. I get to interact with adults. I make money & can provide for my family yet again. The job itself is boring to say the least. It's a start up company so the phones don't ring. I mainly greet guests, order office supplies, lunch when needed, book the board & conference room & assist the Office Manager in day to day tasks.
Don't get me wrong. I take pride in any possition I hold. Be it running the company to washing the floors. It's my job. It's what I've been hired to do & I'll do it with pride because my name is on it.
I came to work yesterday Morning to a card on my chair. The card contained a $100 & a handwritten thank you from my boss (The President) Phil thanking me for doing a great job & I am off to a great start. After lunch as I was returning with my immediate suppervisor (Office Manager) Cassie we found a dozen beautiful yellow roses on my desk. We thought, oh how nice, it must be someone's birthday. Nope. It was another gift from Phil saying thank you yet again. Cassie had been given the same gifts as well since she is his assistant as well as office manager.
Just when I thought it couldn't get any better. The 4 VP's offered to take us out to lunch tomorrow to the Cheesecake Factory.
I've never felt so appreciated at a job before. This gig might just be the best one I've had so far. A girl could get used to this. :)
