My new job and the Givaway!

Ok so I have been at my new job for a week. Its going awesome. In one week I have made $120 in tips alone, I thought that was pretty good. I alo have already obtained  regular customers (YAY)!! However on the downside I really butchered my finger good this week, just part of being a hair stylist LOL. Anyhow I am really loving my job. I am blessed to have it.

My daughter has her CRCT testing coming up in April. She is in first grade and it is mandatory for her to pass the Math section and reading section for her to be promoted to the 2nd grade. Reading she has mastered, she reads on a 3rd grade level. Math she does really well in except mastering the concept of money, i've tried everything I know to do to teach her but she hasn't really got the hang of it. If anyone has any advice on a way of teaching her this please let me know, I will try anything!!

So I posted my giveaway on my last post and only 2 people entered, maybe because I didn't anounce it so I did this time, go on and enter!

I hope everyone had a good weekend I hope to post again soon!! Have a great week!

WOW! Snow again!!

Well here in Dalton Georgia where it never snows got snow once again today. Had the weather been just right we probably would have had a pretty good snow, but our ground was mushy and wet from rain so it layed for a little while then melted, not before i got a picture however.

This was at the begining of the snow, we got a little more before it melted. Got my car out of the shop yesterday drove it and in started to run hot twice (NICE)!!! Found out today it needs a fan motor and a thermostat. Hubby is supposed to get it all fixed for me tomorrow while I am on my very first day of my new job.

I won my first award!

I got a comment that I won an award, but I have no clue how to get it or post it or anything! can anyone help!! I am so excited about it though.

My interview went great. I have to go back tomorrow and take a girl and boy with me to do a hair cut on each for her to show that I can actually cut hair, but then the job is mine! I haven't worked in over a year and this is such a blessing. We really needed it! I am hoping that here soon I will be hosting another gift card giveaway. I can do it to walmart again, but if anyone has any other suggestions, please let me know!!

All Good News Today!

Well my day was filled with lots of good news. First Frec (our mechanic) called today finally with a total price. We were thinking it would be about $600, we were so wrong, I was relieved when the price of $470 came out fo his mouth. We have alot of bills due out the next weeks, but we'll make something work somehow!!

Next Mia comes home from school with this big smile on her face:
Then she hands me her progress report from school, she is doing perfect. she is really smart, they wanted to test her for Alpha which would be really good for her, but I turned that down because I feel like when she really knows what its about she'll be able to make the decision on her own. I don't want her to feel pressured and at that age different, good or bad, is still different!

So what was next in my day filled with good news. My dad called me and told me he would give me the $100 I need to tag and isure my car if we could get it out of the shop. This was extremly nice if my dad. We have never had a great relationship due to life choices he made, but I still love him reguardless and he has always been there for me financially no matter what even though thats not what I wanted but hey didn't I say this was a good news post!!!!!

All in all I have had a wonderful day. I am so thankful for my husband, my kids and my family. They are what keeps me going.

Oh and one more thing, I have an interview tomorrow at Great Clips for a position, pray that goes well, I need the job!!!

Good night all!
