It's February...

And I realized I haven't posted in a while... so here's just an update of sorts!

First of all- My new years resolutions have been going well.  I've far exceeded my "try a new recipe a month" because I've averaged about one new one every 1-2 weeks!  Thank you, pinterest!  Sometime soon I'll do a post linking the new ones I've tried so far :)  As far as exercising, I kind of cut back on it a bit.  We are also going to get rid of our Netflix subscription.  So instead I'm switching to walking.  I need to get a harness for Earl (he doesn't quite understand this leash attached to the collar concept and sometimes tries to pull out of his collar) and then I'm going to start walking daily (or as close to daily as weather allows) with both dogs.  This should be interesting lol!  The only one that's not going the greatest is the saving money thing.  Seems like lately we just can't get ahead.  And our spending hasn't been in excess.  I'm just not sure what it is.  Hopefully though we'll get a decent tax refund and can get caught up.  Anyone out there have any easy little "tips" for saving money? 

And speaking of money- I have a prayer request.  Brew applied for a railroad job a while back- and GREAT news, got invited to a "hiring session" on Feb 16 (which consists of watching a video, taking a test, and then getting an interview!)  If he were to get this job it would be a blessing in SO many ways.  First of all, he'd be making more than what we BOTH make together now (so I might have a chance to be a stay-at-home mom one of these days-- or at least will be able to take more time off  when I have a baby!!!)  Not to mention, railroad benefits/retirement are AWESOME, he would be home more than he is now, AND he'd really enjoy this job.  We are really praying that this is the job for him and that he gets this opportunity!  Any prayers you all can send too would be fantastic!

We watched the Super Bowl last night- though we didn't care who won lol  (We aren't big NFL people).  I didn't see ANY commercials that were overly spectacular.  Seems like it's been a while since there were any really funny ones...

Well I need to get off here and get ready & moving.  Got to leave in about a half hour.  I'm working half days (afternoon) today, tomorrow, and Wednesday, then full days Thursday and Friday.
