+ per usual, as soon as i get a little comfortable with the leisurely, life picks up :) in the next two months i think we spend two weekends at home? we are headed to mccall idaho for some snow, then to vegas for some girl time, then over to wyoming for cabin time + snowmobiling, down to utah for a wedding, and the list goes on.. needless to say, the change of pace will be a little more my style. i am pumped!
+ i have been networking and emailing around since the day i got to boise, seeing if someone, somewhere, needed my help in tv. i knew that adding a little work into my open schedule would help me feel fulfilled and keep my head in the game. but....being a college graduate (can't be an intern) that is only here until june (only 4 months to work) made me pretty undesirable. however, god seems to always pulls through for me. (love that guy!) by some miracle, i connected with a local lifestyle show that saw my previous experience in the field and basically handed me a position on a silver platter the second i walked in. they're drafting up a short term contract for me but if all goes well, i will continue to produce for the show remotely after we move. i cannot emphasize the following phrase enough - like what?? i don't know when my streak of good career luck will end, but i am riding this wave for now!! i am thrilled to go somewhere where i really feel like i have a lot to contribute, instead of being a meek little intern. YAY for big girl life!!!
+ this past weekend, jordan and i watched my cousin's three kids while they took a quick trip for a funeral. i was mega nervous - i guess i just realized that i don't really know what to do with kids? my youngest sister is 15 so i haven't babysat in a hot second & i feel totally clueless as to how to entertain and keep three kids alive for a few days??? the three year old wanted breakfast saturday morning and i literally was like, "can a three year old eat cereal by herself? won't the spoon be way to big for her mouth? can she even lift a metal spoon???" I DON'T KNOW THESE THINGS. (i spoon fed her just to be safe.) although in no universe are jordan and i prepared to have three kids, they made me a little hungry for one, i can't deny it. (isn't babysitting other people's kids supposed to be birth control? come on!) on saturday night before her bed-time meltdown, the three year old chloe kept running up to me, squeezing my cheeks really intensely and squealing "you so cuuuuuute!" kissing me on the mouth and running away. i pretty much started sobbing right there, it was adorable.
+ and lastly, i just noticed this weird habit that i have a few days ago. guys, it's really odd. brace yourself. okay - i explain everything i am doing while i do it - like in "tutorial" fashion. i noticed that i do this while i apply my makeup (must be watching too many makeup videos, oops) but it has bled to other parts of my life. i explained how to properly clean the toilet yesterday. then i talked myself through my shower - shampooing, conditioning, shaving, the whole enchilada. i explained the proper form to myself while i do push-ups. today, i explained how to roll up sleeves jcrew style as i rolled up the sleeves of my jean jacket. ???????????? is this wacky or what? maybe it's not that weird, but it gives me this weird sense of satisfaction like i really know what i'm doing. like there's an invisible student standing next to me saying, "you roll those sleeves girl! look at that neat crease!" IDK. maybe there's a support group for this shiz.
