Off to Vegas

We are leaving for Vegas to get a new car. Long story, but we could not get anything here in UT (Even St. George) for Durango so we are taking it to Vegas.
Everything is set. Just have to go in and get it. I love that part.
So, I'll update when we get back. The car we are getting is a Saturn Ion 3 in Storm Grey. Very Pretty, glad it is finally getting settled after a month of this.

I got through the interview and was asked to come in for an IRL interview...which will be 2 hours! ACK, but I'm so glad the first one is done!
My IRL interview will be Nov. 5th.
Now I have to start shopping for an interview outfit!
Praise Jesus! that this interview went well! Now more prayers for my IRL one to go just as well.

ACK! It is almost 1:00 and the butterflies are here!

How can I be this nervous for an interview? Maybe it is because I really want this job? OH, I hope they don't wait until 3:00 to call! They can call me anywhere from 1-3...

The nerves are going crazy big time!

So, today is THE day. The make it or break it day. Yep, I have my phone interview today. I made sure that I went to bed early last night so that I'm all rested up. My friend says they ask some really tough questions. I just hope that I don't sound too stupid when aswering them.
On the plus side I have figured out that I can type 48 WPM with no errors...which is pretty good for me.
The girls scouts stuff is going really well. Last night we had our Mod 3&4 training. It helped me a lot since I have never done girl scouts at all. I learned what to do durring a meeting, and what the girls are to get from GS. I think this program is going to be an amazing gift I can give K when she is older. When you give your daughter independence you give her the world, the know how to do what ever she wants to do. I wish that I would have been able to do it when I was a girl.
I think we may have a sleep walker on our hands. A has gotten up every night for the last 3 nights. He walks to his door and then starts crying. We get up and put him back to bed, he usually seems disoriented. Poor thing actually fell out of his bed a few nights ago and didn't wake up, just went back to sleep on the floor. Good thing I heard him or he would have been there all night. So, I'm actually glad now that we spent the money for a toddler bed, I think he would have hurt himself by now if we would have done the twin bed.

Wish me luck!

I have applied to JetBlue Airlines to be on their "Reservation Crew". I am so excited! Basically what I would be doing is taking reservations for people all in the comfort of my own home! I have a telephone interview next Wednesday and then it is just a sit and wait game. It would be an awsome opportunity, but if it doesn't happen that is ok too. The pay is pretty good for this job, but what I am most excited about is FREE airline tickets for me and my family. I know my parents could fly free, but I'm not sure how far into "family" the list goes. I would so love to be able to just hop on a plane to go visit my family for the afternoon and hop back home later the same day or next. How great would that be???? I'm so stinkin excited, but I know I shouldn't get my hopes too high!

More on Cars and Scrapbooking.

So, we have decided on the Saturn Ion. They have great safety ratings and Aaron gets fleet pricing for them so they are really inexpensive for us. That way we will be able to buy a used SUV to have for towing our trailer and for all the girl scouts outings that will be happening this year....
That's right I am leading a troop with my friend Kristi. Our girls are the same age and they are just so excited about it. Start saving your pennies for the cookies! HA...that is what Aaron is most excited about.
On to other news. I am taking over the play room. Gradually most of the toys have been moved to their bedrooms anyways, they just like to play in their rooms, and it keeps the mess contained a little better I think. So, I get to have a scrap room again! YEAH!! I'm so excited to be able to decorate it and make it my own. I think I'm going to keeps the yellow and add some blue touches to it. I can't wait until it is all finished! And everything won't be so dusty anymore, having my things in the unfinished part of the basement just made for a really dusty mess. I'm so excited.
A quick story. The other day I was sitting on the ground putting my shoes on and Aidan came up to me and said "Mommy your so pretty"...AHHH! What a way to melt any mommies heart is to tell her she is so pretty. I can't believe that a 2 almost 3 year old came up with that all on his own (and I know it wasn't planted because we were the only ones home)! Anyways, just had to share how sweet he is!

More about cars.

So, we are still car shopping. We can't agree on anything right now. We test drove the Nissan's, the Mitsubishi, and the Chevy and boy what a pain.
The first thing we drove was the sentra...We both liked how it rode, but the head rest hit me funny so I felt like it was pushing my head forward the whole time we were riding in it. I adjusted it several times, but they just didn't make that car for a person of my height. So we test drove a used (not by our choice) Altima. I loved it, but Aaron said it had way to much road noise for him. So the Altima was out. Next came the Mitsubishi Lancer, I didn't even ride in that one, but Aaron test drove it...he liked it. I felt the interior was really cheap and would fall apart in about 2 months time (esp. with kids). So, we went on to Chevy. We test drove the Cobalt. Neither one of us really liked it. So, we are back to square one now. We are going to look at Saturn's, hopefully this will be THE car. I have driven older ones, but not the newer ones. After that we are about out of cars and will just have to make a decision. We are hoping that our Durango will sell, the ad in the auto trader starts this Wed. so hopefully we will start getting some calls on it.

So, our car shopping still continues. At this point I am ready to just be done with this whole mess. We are hoping that this will all take place sometime this month. Let's pray that we can agree on something!

This is pretty neat.

I'm trying to win a free ipod. I've been wanting one for awhile, but not wanting to spend the money on one I keep putting it off. I've heard that this is actually true. I signed up for the blockbuster movies, and just have to get 8 people to sign up too. I would love to win one, but I don't think that will actually happen. But if you are interested here is the link....

car shopping

I think A and I have found a car. We have been shopping all weekend and looking at pros and cons of various cars. We test drove the hybrid cars...prius, and civic, the scion and have looked into many others. A test drove the Mazda 3 today (we had both kids so I stayed back, but sat in the drivers seat to make sure that I would be comfy driving it.) We both really love it, it is sporty, A says it drives really smooth. I thought it was the most comfortable car that I sat in, that is important when we are talking sitting in it for 710 miles! Another neat thing is we get the fleet pricing with this car also (a great RR perk, car shopping with no hassle!) which we would not with the Toyotas or Hondas.
We figured out that it will take us 10 years before the Prius would save us any money because it is quite a bit more expensive. We also found out that the batteries can not be recycled, so yes you are saving fuel, but littering the earth with a batterythat we would have to change about every 8 years...HMM not sure which is worse there.
So, we have our Durango up for sale on Auto trader and KSL, hopefully it will sell soon. And until it sells we will be limiting the amount of driving we will be doing because that thing is a big gas HOG!
The car we both really like. Posted by Picasa
