I started my own stuff

I decided to start selling jewelry. My friend showed me how a couple weeks ago and it is really fun and easy. So, I invested in supplies and another friend has candle parties once a month during normal months and then once a week during the holiday months coming up. I hope this works out. My mom also said she'd invite the girls from her BYU ward for a jewelry party. So, this might work out. I've been selling crafts since we were married so I thought I'd give this a try. It seems to be quite popular lately and since the holidays are upon us I hope the time is right to start this. We shall see!

Still looking and holding out

Jason went out today to 5 hotels and gave them his resume. I'm glad now that he is going to more than one place. All the eggs in one basket is a recipe for heartache. We all need our Plan B's. I've been tempted to get a job as a waitress with my friend. She says they are hiring. I don't want to get a job and then quit when Jason gets one. Plus I know I need to be home with the kids. I don't know. I'm sort of putting off making a decision. I know it's bad to do that but I guess I am hoping that if I wait long enough Jason will have a job and the decision will be made for me. I just don't want to make the wrong decision and put other people out. BLah...I don't like this situation...Logan is calling for help with homework. We just keep praying and hoping.

Bad News

Jason just found out that he didn't get the job and we've already lost unemployment. Life is getting pretty scary and stressful. I know there is a lesson to be learned and that trials are to make us stronger. It's the meantime that I'm worried about. Jason is pretty upset (understandable). I guess we've been fasting and praying for the wrong things. Now it's time to find out what the Lord's will is. I have to keep reminding ourselves..bad things happen to good people right?! Wow...sometimes life is just hard.

I picked a box full of peaches this morning from our peach trees. Riker and Chad helped me peel them and we blended them up and put them in the fruit dryer for some homemade fruit roll-ups. I'm going to make peach jam too and some kind of peach dessert for CJ's baptism this Saturday. He just got his new suit and is very excited for it. It will be close on Saturday because Jason, Tyler and I will be in a Parade Saturday morning in Midway to advertise for the show and then run and get ready for the baptism.
We still haven't heard back from Jason's "job" but he just left to go to LDS motion picture studio to audition for a New Testament project to be filmed next year. He is auditioning to be one of Christ's apostles. Good Luck Jason!
Brayden's football games will sometimes be at 4pm and so I'll be able to make some of them...yea!

Still Waiting...

Jason has been through 5 interviews including one in Indiana for a full day analysis. We are just waiting for the call to find out if he will be the next General Manager for the Courtyard by Marriott next to the Salt Lake City Airport. We are biting our nails.
On a lighter note...Brayden is home from Washington and had a marvelous time. And school has started and I only have Riker and Chad at home. Tyler and C.J. decided to go back to school instead of being homeschooled. I ok with that. I love homeschooling but the thought of all that free time is also appealing. I figured since I have the play I had better let them go to school. Brayden also decided to join the football team. He wasn't planning on it because of his recent injury to his knee at the reunion but in Washington he played pretty hard with his friends and his knee isn't bothering him at all. I only decided to audition for the play because he wasn't going to be in football because I wanted to be able to go to all his games. My rehearsals are every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings. His games are Thursday evenings. I'm really frustrated now because watching Brayden play is so great and I want him to feel supported. Jason has rehearsals most of those days too including Thursdays. Well, hopefully there will be a few Thursdays where we are off the hook. We started blocking for scenes yesterday and Jason and I were the only ones with our lines memorized. We were supposed to be all memorized by Sept. 1. I felt pretty good that Jason and I were totally prepared. It was really fun practicing. It keeps my mind off our other problems.
