Our oven is messed up. Our house, I think, is a little bit of a lemon. Things go wrong. The roof leaks, the boiler died, and our oven is broken. We need to get a plumber to check it out (it's gas) but I'm kind of sick of plumbers since the boiler. Don't get me wrong, I love our house. But it has some issues.

We got our grill and made the yummiest hamburgers in the world. It ruled. We were going to grill tonight, but it's cool out so we decided to use the oven. Now the oven isn't working properly. It sucks. I'm starving. And now we're arguing about what to do because we're both overly hungry. Should we order out? Should we just stick it in there even though it's not working properly? It's going to take forever to cook. This sucks. (It's in the oven right now.)

Anyway, I got them to give me even more money for my prospective job. The benefits are going to cost a lot more, and the time-off is a little bit less. I mentioned these things, and they offered me more money. So I'm definitely going to take it. I talked to my boss about it today. It was really hard. She was really negative about the new job at first. I mean, I know she just doesn't want to lose me, but it bummed me out a little bit. But I really need a change. I've liked my job and I've liked working for my boss, but I just feel like it's time for me to move on. If this job sucks, then I'll just have tofind another. I will remain part time
to do some work at the old place for a while, but I 'll have to work out a timetable for transitioning over. I'm excited, but also nervous and a little scared. They're hiring another person to work with me, and I hope I don't hate her. I mean, I barely ever hate people, but you never know. It could be bad.

In other happyish news, I received signs of impending fertility, so ttc should commence soon. We'll see what happens.

HI! I'm Mary Ellen's sister-in-law. My hubby and I are in the same boat as they are so she told me about you. I really enjoy reading your blog. I know how hard this road is and wanted to send you positive thoughts.

Good luck with the new job!
