Blessing in disguise....Not sure yet...

The craziest thing happened this morning on my way to the Suburban....I was heading outside (we park behind our house) and I am just about to get in the car when something catches me out of the corner of my eye...it was something moving in the bushes in the median.....then all of a sudden a coyote comes strolling out and crosses the street....looks down the hill at me (it was maybe 100ft away) turns around and runs up the hill on the sidewalk....Talk about insane....I mean I know the highlands is right in the middle of a forest.....and I have seen the occasional deer running up the sidewalk....and I guess there were some black bear sightings by the park at the top of the hill....so I suppose this shouldn't have been out of the ordinary....but man I was totally awake for my drive into work.....

So today I took a page out of the Nana Anna book.....I tried to get everything done when I got home from work....Pumping, Bottles made for tomorrow, dishes, coffee made, and I even cleaned out the fridge (Thanks Molly, you reminded me I needed to do that)...man it felt good to get all this done...Of course I couldn't have done it all if Lila hadn't taken a good morning nap...So thanks to Lila too!....

With all my TV shows wrapped up for the season my DVR is looking pretty empty which has caused me to have a New Addiction....the Soap Net channel....Yup addicted in 1 day.....I Love the old episodes of 90210......I could watch them all day....I swear I am such a TV junkie.....

On to a more serious note.....this could be a blessing although right now I don't think that the reality has totally set in for Shawn and me....Tonight Shawn was let go from Zango.....his whole team was let go and some other employees.....hard times call for hard measures in the private sector....he leaves on a good note with good experience....It really steps up his job search in Austin and now possibly anywhere with good housing and salary......Hopefully his search will go well.....he has had a few bites in Austin so I will keep you all posted....Our lease is up in Aug....so we should have a game plan soon.....I guess this just bumps everything up and causes us to be aggressive in the job hunt....In the meantime I will be talking to my boss to see if I can pick up some hours to help out with money at home....we shall see how that talk goes tomorrow....it would be short term so who knows if they will let me.........

So I am ending with a video of Lila chatting....she is starting to make more noises....Enjoy!

Hang in there...I know if anyone can get through this it's you & Shawn! :)

Seeing that coyote would have woke me right up too! Remember there was a mother coyote & her babies hanging around the woods at work and they put up that dorky "coyote crossing" sign?

Take care!
