Good couple of days!
Yesterday was the last day of camp. We had a couple of kids not come because they started their long weekends early and we had two kids not feeling well (which was sad, I hate not getting to say goodbye on the last day). It was a good day at school, we got to play outside for a long time for the first time this week. Then, right at the end of the school day I got a text from Alex saying he was contacted to interview at Lampo! It is a Senior Inventory Manager position and we know nothing about it other than that it is a full time position working for Dave Ramsey. I don't know if it is a good fit for him personally or professionally but he is going in Monday to talk with them and we will see what happens.
Last night I helped at the sort for the consignment sale when it was over. I came home with a TON less stuff than I brought, I am sure I probably made around $250-300!!! I am so excited about that!
This morning we went to the chiropractor to help with the headache I got from sorting last night. It's very physical work. After we went to the Chabad synagogue which is a very Orthodox synagogue. One of Naomi's best friends is this denomination and they were at that synagogue for the weekend (normally they are at the other Chabad which is at Vandy, the dad is the rabbi there) so we were able to visit. Alex got called up to read from the Torah which is supposed to bring blessings to your family and Naomi got to stay there all day and play. We had lunch there and then Naomi stayed through dinner with her friend.
We went home, gave the twins a nap and then went to visit my coworker who happens to be the friend's aunt. She has two little ones too so the kids all got to play and Alex got Naomi and joined us later on. We were able to do some learning (the twins were repeating prayers along with her daughter who is 6 weeks older than them), I was able to relax with a good friend and we enjoyed a delicious dinner together lounging in her living room. Watching 3 two year olds walking around with drumsticks is hilarious! I also learned the twins will eat every bit of chicken off a drumstick and neatly clean up the bones by throwing them out.
It was just a great two days, I really am in such a great mood right now! I even managed to get a couple of dresses for Naomi for school and 3 days of Hanukkah covered for very little money. I think the 3 nights of Hanukkah covered for all 3 girls (although I might need to try to find more toy dinosaurs, not sure if the two packs I bought will split out to enough) cost me about $10 total. Not bad for 9 gifts! I bought most of it at the half price sale after walking around to see what larger items I had bought sold so I knew that I had made enough to cover the expenses.
