The Busy Giffs: Last Week & One Month.

July 15, 2011

Last Week & One Month.

So this week has been ridiculously busy...

My previous post was about the ridiculousness of our Cash Assistance meeting on Monday however, we DID get our Food Stamps for the month on Tuesday morning so that assistance is a HUGE weight off my shoulders, especially since they didnt get deposited the day they were supposed to.

Tuesday was the appeal for unemployment. I have ideas of how it went but until we get the letter in the mail, that's all I can say. I'm hoping for the best but continuing to plan for the worst.  If we win the appeal we will be recieveing a check that could help us, even if we don't recieve it right away. All we can do is cross our fingers and hope and pray that we win.

Wednesday was a much more relaxing day, Emma and I stayed in bed almost all day! I was supposed to have an interview at 6:30 but she called at 4 pushing it until Thursday so I truly had no plans for the day.  And it was a good thing because Emmalee ended up being a scootch all of Wednesday night until Thursday morning.  We got almost NO sleep and of course, Thursday was super busy. 

I had an interview at 12:30 for a nanny job and once again, I am not saying anything about it.  I SHOULD have a phone call today to let me know if they picked me.  Who knows.  I had a really great time with the three kids and the mom and I ended up talking for 45 minutes. It would be a really great if I do get it, but once again... being optimistic but not putting all my eggs in one basket.

However, the best part was Thursday night! Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2! Obviously, we went to the midnight show! I have taken my siblings to all of the movies the day they have come out (except Abby... she was too little for the first one!) We got there at 9:15 and got our seats and seriously, thank goodness we did becuase our theater was PACKED by 11 pm. It was amazing, go see it. That's all.

Even bigger than the final installment of Harry Potter... Emmalee was babysat while we went! It was the first time we left her with anyone other than ourselves. She was ony with my mom so I obviously wasn't stressed or concerned and Emma was wonderful for her I guess! I fed her right before we left, my rocked her to sleep and Emma stayed asleep until about 1:30! Mom changed her, gave her a bottle, and she went back to bed! We finally got home around 3:30 and after a change and a feeding she went to bed around 4:30. Ugh. Thankfully the only thing we had to do today was go to Emmalee's one month check up so we are NOT doing anything else otherwise!

As far as her check up goes, she is perfectly amazing and healthy. She is currently 22 inches long and 9 lbs 15 oz!!! Which levels her off at about an ounce a day and about 3 inches in the past month! her pediatrician says she perfectly healthy and we dont go back until her 2 month checkup!

So now that I've updated and don't feel terrible about reading all week instead of blogging I'm going to take a couple seconds to add more books that I read this week to my 50 Book Challenge!
