When One Door Closes

Yesterday someone asked me, Do you want a job? Now, this is someone who has asked me this before, and never has anything I deem Jesse-worthy going on. So I said no. He said, This time it's different, and proceeded to lay it all out. Easy work, close (VERY close) to home, and flexibility for when I start school. I'm sold. We'll see what happens.
Yesterday I made chicken soup to combat the deep freeze our city has fallen into. For Isaiah, I made tiny alphabet pasta and gave it to him with just enough broth to cover it. Basically, a bowl of noodles. He refused, complained, cried and finally threw up when I told him to eat what he was given. After all that mess, do you know what he asked for? Ramen - A BOWL OF NOODLES! *sigh*
In an effort to keep the dogs off the furniture, I purchased a ScatMat. A plastic mat that gives a slight electric shock (feels like a static shock, I tested it to make sure I wasn't going to fry them) and for the FIRST time in forever - the dogs are laying on their own blankets on the floor. It was a pricey piece of plastic, but well freakin worth it.

AND I found out why Daimean has been waking up in the middle of the night. He'd been setting the alarm on his cell phone for 3am!!!! Oh yes, that has been stopped.

Congrats! I hope it works out.

Where on earth did you find alphabet noodles? I would love to color them for BG to play with.

Yay for the potential job and and keeping the dogs to their own space. And why in the world was he setting his alarm for 3 am?
