Well, it has been a month since I last worked with Best Buy.

  3. Tried to Find a Job
  4. Been Re-elect­ed to serve on the Paul Revere Board of Directors
  5. Worked on coop­er­a­tive issues
  6. Cleaned my Desk
  7. Pre­pared for pho­tograph­ing a wed­ding in June
  8. Cleaned my Desk
  9. Helped Amy orga­nize stuff
  10. Cleaned my Desk
  11. Been to Dominic’s Spring Cel­e­bra­tion at School
  12. Cleaned my Desk… Did I men­tion this already?
  13. Been to Mikay­la’s Kinder­garten Program
  14. Tak­en a Shower

Okay, so I took a few more show­ers in between there, but late­ly I have felt like a bum. I don’t know what I would do if mom was­n’t liv­ing with us. She has kept us afloat.

But, I hope­ful­ly will have an assign­ment start­ing June 26th. It is sec­ond shift (yuck) but it is work, will last 3–4 months. So keep your fin­gers crossed.

Riley Update: He is get­ting that cute baby fat­ness. He looks just like Dominic and myself. He is so cute. We even do this ‘Bounce, Bounce, Bounce–Wiggle, Wig­gle, Wig­gle’ that he gets a kick out of.

And he just loves his dad­dy! When Amy plays with him, she will get a smile and maybe a chuck­le. But when I play with him, he must think I am hys­ter­i­cal, because I get these full-bel­ly laughs. It’s great!

Riley also loves our cud­dle time in the morn­ing. While Amy takes the oth­er kids to school, he comes and sleeps with me in bed, and we both get a few more hours in. We usu­al­ly don’t wake up until about noon. At which point, Amy comes in and com­plains that we both stink and need to get out of bed! Riley and I are both ‘heaters’ and give off heat.

OH! Before I for­get. A few weeks ago, Mom and I were up late watchin a movie, and she final­ly got him to sleep, so I stayed up a bit more and watched some TV.

I final­ly went to bed about 1 a.m. and just as I final­ly fell asleep, we wakes up. It was 1:30 a.m. I was so upset and frus­trat­ed, Amy was telling me to just calm down, it was okay, so I final­ly just brought him in bed with Amy and I. She turned on her side to face us, and I was kind of on my side with him in the crook of my arm.

Riley, looked at me, then turned and looked at Amy, then turned and looked at me. He did that a few times, back and forth, back and forth, final­ly he snug­gled back and sighed. It was like he was say­ing, “I have Mom­my, and Dad­dy, Mom­my, Dad­dy, Mom­my, Daddy–I can sleep now.”

He then woke up a sec­ond lat­er and did it again to make sure we were still there! It was so cute, I was no longer upset and frustrated!

Well, time for me to clean my desk. Talk to you all later.
