Small updates

Good news!!! My boss is letting me come back after the summer! What a relief! I was so afraid that I would have to come back and start begging for a job or interviews. This job has been such a blessing. I don't make as much as I did at Comcast- but for our sanity- it's worth it! Another great thing is that Jon's WalMart recruiter told him that they will have temporary positions and that I could apply for with a cover letter and resume before we get there. We're assuming that this isn't to work in an actual store- considering they're asking for a cover letter. I'm crossing my fingers that this isn't too good to be true! Maybe i'll be the girl who puts the beans in the coffee maker.. then gives the coffee to Jon to give to a big-wig... hehe just kidding.

Other than that- this week has been really busy. On Tuesday night after work a friend (Jess) and I went up to Thanksgiving Pointe for a cooking class. It ended up being more of a cooking show. It was fun though. It was a good break :-) The lady who taught the class was teaching about "frozen dinners". She had some cute ideas. I'm excited though because she gave some good and really simple recipes for chicken cordon bleu and ice cream cake (yum!). We had fun sampling her food and joking about the great "utah hair" that we saw. I'm going to make the ice cream cake at a group gathering this weekend- I'll post pictures of how it turns out- disaster or not!

And for all of Jon's fans out there... ;-) the masters application is IN! He won't find out if he got in until the end of May. Wish him luck!

ps... "Uncle Sam" got us a Wii ... if you couldn't tell from our last post :-)
(I decided we needed some sort of a picture in this long entry)
