Good News, Sad News

Been super busy again lately, sorry for not posting. I'm trying to get a new job and also trying to get everything caught up with my current job in case I do leave. I've had a phone interview, a face to face interview and another phone interview for this one job that I want. Its so close to home and I'll make more money and it really seems like something I will enjoy doing. I should know one way or the other within a week or so. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!!!
A lot has happened, of course. Zach is almost 100% potty trained. He is in underwear throughout the day instead of a pull up and even stays dry most of the night. We got him a toddler bed that he loves too. The night we put it up for him, he put himself to bed an hour early. Its certainly made the bedtime routine so much easier. I was worried about him constantly getting out of bed or roaming the house in the middle of the night, but he's been doing really good.
I just signed Lilly up for softball so that should start real soon. She just brought home her midterm grades and I'm very proud. All A's with 2 B's in reading and spelling. She's really been trying lately. Her birthday is a little more than a month away. She's decided that she wants a dance party theme. I guess I'll have the Wii ready to go and also her little disco ball and stuff. I'm still trying to figure this one out. She's getting old enough now where I should have a separate party for family and friends.
Oh, I've also began volunteering at the day care to help out with the kids when I have spare time. I love holding the babies, but will go where they need me. Friday, they were horribly short staffed, so I had some toddlers. I really do love it.
We didn't really do much for Valentine's Day, but I'm not really a person to celebrate something like that. Hubby got me beautiful flowers, I got him a few little things and we went out to eat with Zach (Lilly was with her father) and had Chinese food. I did spend most of the day at the day care because I took the day off and hubby was sleeping since he had just come off midnight shift. The day after I went out and bought a bunch of Valentine candy for half off.
My step dad had his first wreck on Saturday. The weather was bad, we had lots of snow and ice and he isn't a very good driver anyway. He spun out, ran through someone's yard and hit and apartment building. Thankfully he is ok and his truck only has a dent. No damage to the building. I was freaking out, but he wouldn't let me come help him out. My oldest brother was already out and about and he stopped to help.
About a week ago, a guy I went to school with passed away in a car accident. He was a volunteer fire fighter from my home town, an EMT, he was in the army and did one tour in Iraq, he was a first responder and worked for the medical examiners office. He was a very busy guy. Such a nice and friendly person, it was sad to see him go. His best friend said at the funeral that he was now in Heaven helping to put out fires in Hell. And the next week we got sooo much snow. His best friend posted on Facebook that he knew it was because he was putting out fires.
I think that about sums up my past month.
