Wow

It's been one hellava week.

Monday Jonah had his two-year check up. He is perfect, of course (maybe a little short). That afternoon I had a job interview for a marketing position at a production studio. They were very impressed with my broadcast and sales background. Elora woke up that night with a high fever.

Tuesday I took the job. I will be in charge of booking their studios and production services. It is on a trial basis to see if I can make them enough money that they can afford to pay me. I will be working Mondays and Thursdays and events.
Tuesday evening after putting a snotty, low fever Elora to bed at 6pm, we went to Brandon's dad's house for Alan's birthday. Linda had invited all of the kids (including Kathy & Katie's fiancee, Jason) over for dinner. Dessert was one of the best cakes I've ever tasted. It was a super-fluffy apple cake (not apple spice) with butterscotch cream cheese frosting. Driving home our car broke down. After about 15 mins. we got it restarted but it took us another 15 mins. to figure out it would continue dying if we didn't drive in a lower gear for awhile. We made it home before midnight.

Wednesday officially began Jonah's real potty training. Ugh.

Thursday potty training continues. Elora's runny nose continues. We have to close our bank account because our visa debit card # is being used online by someone else (fortunately they've charged less than $30). Brandon and I start getting sick and our other car breaks down when Brandon is on his way home from work in SLC!!

Today potty training is going incredibly well today:) Elora and I are snot faucets and Jonah lost my newest Netflix dvd while I was putting Elora down for her nap. I have looked in every conceivable cravice in the house and still can't find it.

(And if you get your fingers on that apple cake recipe, pass it my way...)

Wow, that was quite the week. Potty training boys is tricky. Vance still has accidents every once in a while.
Sorry about the cars...that really stinks.
Congrats on the job. That sounds like a lot of fun. What do you do with the munchkins while you are at work?
