Let's try this again

Claire's 3!!!!
Odd that this was once our little munchkin

She's learning new things all the time. She'll randomly see a truck for example and say "its red!" its awesome to watch her learn

Joe is still at TechMaster. He enjoys his job and does great at it! 

I'm still at CEC. Not THEE greatest job in the world. Some of the management makes me wonder how they got there..but oh well right? I leave there with a headache a lot but what partially makes it worth it is some of the kids are so sweet. The other day, I was dressed up as Chuck E and this little boy came up to me and said "you know what Chuck E, you're the cutest mouse i've ever seen." its the kids like that, that give me a hope for the next generation. The kids that come in and like to pick on the person in the Chuck costume (particularly if the person in the costume is short) they say "Your not real are you? Chuck isn't real. I just want tickets!" those are the kids that scare me in regards to the future America

I've been thinking a lot lately about how social media just SUCKS! I mean its a time killer. For real, you might be hard pressed to find someone without a phone, tablet or computer in their hands these days. And as soon as it dings, oh man, whoever is in the way of you answering it better watch out! 
I feel bad for my girl, I really do, she's going to grow up thinking that's normal. I'm not saying I'm not just as guilty. It just kills knowing that too. The only thing I can think of about why its so addicting, I don't wanna feel like I'm missing out. I'm here in SOCAL, I have very few friends and the friends I do have we either see each other at work or church events. It just sucks! I miss having coffee with a close friend of mine in the midwest and just talking for hours about everything. 

Before, when I was a stay at home mom, I just wanted to get a job to get out of my house and see what the rest of the world is up to, now that I have said job, I miss my family. I work typically during the weekends and Joe is off during the weekends. When he's at work during the week, its like 7am-5 or 6pm.. by the time he gets home, he's bone tired and we just don't get a lot of time together. I don't blend in with his family 100%. I feel inferior A LOT!!! Moving out here was no easy adjustment and lets just say, they didn't exactly make the transition easier. 

I miss my family. On Super Bowl Sunday, Joe's grandma fell and broke her hip. A few days before that, my sister got ahold of me to tell me our dad's heart rate is 25% and he's having a rough time breathing. I can't get back to the midwest because of the weather. UGH!
A couple weeks ago, my nephew was born. I've never NOT been there for a birth (with the exeption of 1, his dad was stationed in GA at the time of his birth) I miss the snow. I don't miss the ice and being shut in doors for days. (or the fact that I can't get back there right now)
 I miss familiarity.
