Excited all around!

#1. Barry set up my washer and dryer! Yay, yippee, I can do laundry! No seriously, I'm SO happy about it! I had been using my cloth diapers for the past 2 days, and they were getting ready! It was delivered today about 2, and we finally set it up at about 9. I washed my diapers, and am SO excited to do my fluffy laundry.

#2. I had a job interview today. That has good and bad parts to it. I do not want to work outside of the home, ever. I know and realize that I definitely may have to. It's just not something I want to do. After talking to Debbi, my awesome neighbor, she thinks I will be able to find someone from the ward to watch the boys. [side vent: DMU will increase Barry's financial aid to pay for the boys to go to daycare, or for someone to watch them, but will not increase it for me to stay home and watch them. I have to provide documentation that I'm working full time, and then fill out my daycare/childcare provider's information. To me, it would make more sense for them to increase the amount so I didn't have to work and could be at home with my boys...am I totally off my rocker for thinking this??: end side vent] I feel better about myself, knowing that I only applied for jobs on Sunday night, and have already had interest, that's a slight confidence booster.

#3. I've always always always wanted to know how to knit or crochet. Seriously I remember saving up my allowance to buy crochet hooks and yarn, but never learning how to do it. My best friend growing up, Anna, her mom was a HUGE crocheter! I still have dolls at my mom's that she crocheted big fancy dresses for! I think that she is why I always longed to do that. Anyway, back to my awesome neighbor, Debbi, well she has a neighbor that is in a knitting club for the spouses of DMU students. And she invited me! I'm SO excited that someone is going to teach me how to do it!

#4. Breaking Dawn comes out on Saturday! Enough said!

#5. I get to refer someone to my most favorite OB ever! I seriously love her, and am so sad to be in Iowa...but I guess it doesn't *really* matter since I'm not having more kids any time soon!

Now the not so exciting things about my day. Julian did not nap. Well I guess, if you want to get technical, he did sleep for 10 minutes in the car on the way home from our appointment. UGH! Trust me, he still realllllllllllllllllly desperately needs to nap!

I think that's all that's happened in Casa de Palizzi today...Oh yeah! We got cable, and internet today, so that is VERY exciting!
