This year continues to surprise us with how differently it's panning out than we originally planned (Isn't that how it always goes?). We first had the whole no more moving back to DC surprise, then Camaron started his new job here in Phoenix (where we moved, close to downtown). Unfortunately, Camaron's job that we were all so excited for didn't quite meet all our expectations. The company was great, it was just that his department was stuck in one of those "This is how we've always done things around here, so that's how we're going to continue doing things" mindsets. So the job that had originally brought in Camaron to bring everyone into modern times, videography-wise, really let us down. Cam didn't get to use any creativity in his work, and would finish everything really quickly and was left being pretty bored all day. Such of waste of all of his talents.
Luckily, Camaron stayed close with one of the companies he interned for last summer. He ended up getting word that a job opening would be available soon, so we decided to jump on the opportunity. Of course Camaron was hired:) The change in Camaron since switching jobs has been so great! Not gonna lie, he was a little mopey for a while (but, could you blame him?). The new job has a schedule that lets Camaron be home during the day a lot more, so I decided to look around a little to see if I could get a job, too. And I did! It's a just a part-time retail job, but hello fatty discount on cute clothes! I can't believe it's been so long since I've had a job with a paycheck. I've been incredibly grateful for all of the time I've had to spend each day with our kids all day, but getting out of the house and working is also something I'm grateful for. I really function at my best when I'm not at home all of the time, so this has been a fun change.
And just to mix things up a bit more, we're thinking of officially starting potty training for Fox next week!!! Please pray for us.
