I am officially employed

So after a month of being unemployed and continually applying with many different companies I have finally been hired on. Banfield Pet Hospital in Petsmart has decided to take a chance on me. I will be the Front desk cordinator. Even though it does not pay as much as we need at this point it's still some money coming in. Also I have to take into consideration that I have made a career change so starting at the bottom is almost necessary. I am now able to apply for a school loan and start my studies. I am also so excited that I will be helping other peoples pet's and that I get a discount for my own pet's with the hospital and Petsmart. Benefits for Robert and me are also a plus since I really don't feel like going to Planned Parent Hood to get cheap birth control....

2 Year Anniversary Cinco de Mayo

For our 2nd anniversary we decided to go to the Moorpark College Teaching Zoo and watch a presentation of the various creatures they preserve there. We also got to walk around and look at them in their cages as well. My favorite were the primates. It was fun and well enjoyed.
We then went to Olvera Street, one of the original streets in downtown Los Angeles preserved as it was when California was still part of Mexico, to celebrate with the Mexicans. Robert bought a sweet wrestling mask and a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) t-shirt, I bought an awesome mexican dress, but I bought it small so I could wear it as a shirt-dress. So it's basically a child's size dress. I also bought a Jesus bracelet. We took some fun pictures on a fake donkey and ate delicious food. We had a great time and found things we plan to buy next time when we have more money and a place to live to keep it in.

All in all we definitely enjoyed our 2nd anniversary much more since it didn't snow like we had on our 1st anniversary.

Link's Birthday at the beach

Today Link turned 3, so we took him and Oscar to the beach. We drove to Port Hueneme where dogs are allowed. Man, when we arrived the boys were just full of excitement. Link was hopping all over the place. We took them down to the water and once we took Oscar's leash off he immediately went in, and enjoyed the waves splashing up on him. Link doesn't like the water much and would run away everytime a wave would come close to him. It was so cute. At one point Robert took Link's leash off, thinking he wouldn't do any harm, well, Link took full advantage of that and took off running. Robert had to chase him down. But other than that they had a great time. They loved every minute of it and got themselves tuckered out. They fell asleep on the way home. Happy birthday Link!!!!

Toys from Grandma & Grandpa Hale

My parents came back from Hawaii last Friday and brought us some nice goodies! Robert and I got some dark chocolate macadamia nuts, pineapple cookies, hang loose t-shirts, a pearl necklace and a Mark Twain book on Hawaii. But Oscar & Link got the absolute gift! They were so excited to see what Grandma and Grandpa brought them. They brought back some pineapple dog treats and toy bones with a Hawaiian print on them. I tell you, they were just extatic to play with their dog bones. Link learned how to fetch with his, and now that it's been a week these toy bones are still their favorite. Before Oscar goes to bed he likes to play with his toy bone by trying to make one of us tug on it with him. And Link likes to shake his around and then take it to bed with him. It is so cute to watch them play with something new and them get excited about it.
