Not much...

Hello to one and all. I really don't have much to say, but feel the need to blog just the same. The only real news is that we have been waiting to hear about a particular job that David had been interviewing for. It was with Cook Children's Hospital in Ft. Worth. David really wanted it and felt really good about his chances. Alas, it was not to be. We got the call yesterday. They went with a guy who already has some experience working with a foundation. Drat and blast! So now we go back to the drawing board. There are only two other possiblities out there at present, one in Seattle and one in Philadelphia. Neither of which has started interviewing yet. We realize that the right job just hasn't come along yet, but it is disappointing just the same and a little frustrating at the long wait in between interviews and decision making and all that. With that said, we also realize that we are truly blessed and we are much better off than many other families who are also out of work.
Just a little shout out to Chris--if you haven't checked his blog lately you need to. He has started blogging again in style!
In another week or so David and I are off to the island of Kauai in Hawaii!! Thanks to Cathy (David's sister with the timeshare) for the invite. Chris is going too and we are going to have a blast. Perhaps it will be our last hurrah 'cause if we don't find a job in the end, we will have to cut way back on our living expenses and try to join the ranks of the retired. I can't think of a better way to go out than in Hawaii!! I hope it doesn't come to that, but hey, we can party like it is the last time!!!
We are also looking forward to a visit in August from Sara, Wade and Matt. They are planning a road trip to Texas and we are excited!! The only problem may be if Sara gets the job she interviewed for this week. While we hope she gets the job, we will be so very sad if they don't let her off for the trip. Matt says that he will have to come by himself if Sara can't get off. I told him that he and Wade should come together, but we are pretty sure Sara wouldn't like that too much. Plus, Chris is coming home in Sept. for the BYU/OK football game at the new Cowboy Stadium in Arlington. Hopefully it will work out and we will get to visit with all our kids in the next few weeks.

welcome back to the blog world mom. I haven't written in forever either. Tonight is our 11 month anniversary!! I am making ranch chicken pizza with banana pudding cups for dessert. Yummo. And no, I would not be okay with Wade going to Texas without me. Ridiculous.

Mom... You are a great writer. You should blog more often!
