I do not like change, especially when it comes to plans that I have set needing to be changed.  I am currently having problems with my neighbors and we have deemed it completely unsafe for the children and myself (being pregnant) to stay here any longer.  They are recieving housing assistance so it is making it nearly impossible for my landlord to evict them.  So my fiance and I have decided that it is necessary for us to move within the next 30 days.  Which makes us have to push our wedding back ....   Sooo our new wedding date is set for April 5, 2009. 

 The next plans that this whole situation has changed is our building the house....  It takes too long to build so now we are just going to have to buy an already built house....   It's getting more and more difficult to find a house that both of us agree with.  We already have the money for the downpayment already saved up and ready to go.....   It's just finding the house now.....   We need a 4+ bedroom with 2+ bathrooms and on the Westend ( we are looking at one in Cascade).  

With all the other stress we have in our life it's feels good to finally be financially set...  Grant was the number one salesman of all the stores (nissan, pontiac, bmw, and hyundai) and grossed close to $10,000.  In one month!!!!   Granted that put him into the 30% tax bracket.....  I am FINALLY in a position where I am not relying on anyone else (state or man) financially.  It feels good to know that if Grant and I broke up tomorrow that I would be doing better than fine by myself, even with 4 kids....   I like my job and I make alot of money.....( $15.89/hr)  It's nice to know that even if I get sick for a week that I still have a couple thousand in the bank and I don't have to stress about how to pay the bills.  It has taken a long time,  but I am sooo happy that I have finally got to this point.....

Now this summer is going to be kind of hectic but I know the kids and I will be having a blast!!  I work Tuesdays and Thursdays through Sunday.  Cam and Ray have Swim Lessons on Mondays and Wednesday @ 9 am, Brea @ 10:30.  Rayne has gymnastics Mondays 4-5 and Cam has Basketball Wednesdays 4-5 and Soccer @6:30 Thursdays.    We also bought a year pass to the swimming pool!!  Camron really wants his hair cut into a mohawk....  and I just decided that it's just hair sooo why not!!   We can always shave it off.....  He wants it dyed though (orange and neon green??)  I don't ask, it's his hair.........lol........

My pregnancy has been another stress all together...  We've already had 3 ultrasounds because they thought I was losing the baby over Memorial Day weekend..... Everything is okay right now,  I have been sooo sick that I actually keep losing weight.  I try to eat as healthy and as frequently as I can even though I get sick at least 3 times a day!!  I just started back up with my exercising again this week. If I go to the gym for at least 30 minutes a day I feel alot better!!  I just seem to have more energy.... Which I need for the 3 kids I already have at home!! 

Well I am going to finish making supper...... I'll keep ya'll updated!!
