Well, the cruise was absolutely wonderful. No complaints -- lots of chances to relax, unwind, rest and eat.
We came back and B went to work and was fired. He called to tell me and I didn't believe it! Since he had a work truck, I had to go pick him up from the office and help him clean out his stuff from the truck. They gave him no reason -- just that they were going in a different direction, and didn't see him being part of it. They PAID for the cruise because he was such a great salesman. It made no sense -- and still doesn't, 5 weeks later.
So, he's been doing side jobs, thinking about going into business with this guy (that's been tabled, though), going on interviews and hopefully will start something in the next couple weeks.
The boys are totally enjoying the preschool program we're doing at the Botanical Gardens. The woman who runs it does a fantastic job and both boys eagerly look forward to attending.
I went to lunch today with a woman from my church's mom's group. I really like her - always have - but now I'm afraid I was a little too militant today in my dislike of mormons and my stance against corporal punishment. It's just like dating - but it feels like there's more at stake somehow - - because there are kids involved, and less time to focus, and it seems like more to lose if you don't connect, because there are so few chances TO connect when you're a SAHM of young kids. When I was dating, I always knew there'd be another guy along in a short time . . . now it seems trying to find a friend takes forever! Oh, well, hopefully she's not thinking I'm a complete basket case, because I like her AND her kids.
