Those of you who pay attention on Facebook already know this, but...
Bob is now employed! He is working for the Huntsville Wal-Mart, 40 hours per week (M-F, daytime). He was so excited that they liked him, he forgot whether he's to go in on Monday or be called in on Monday. Any rate, he has to do a drug test and provide some references, but he's in. The store manager was pleased with him, and told him that he will start off in the advertised position (stockist), but his immediate supervisor has been promoted to management in another store and Bob will move up to that position soon. We shall see. It isn't meant to be a career, just a way to make some money.
In other news, I got the bathroom walls painted. Bob wanted to do a "weathered" effect, so it took 3 coats so far, by brush, and needs a top coat on Monday. It looks really neat, and i think the whole thing will be nice when it's done. Of course, progress will be slower now that Bob's working, but we'll probably get more school work done.
We got all the wall paper off the hall and one wall in the living room. About 1/4 of it has been washed and scraped free of glue as well. We plan to paint it white, to be a clean background for all our pictures and decorations.
I cooked all day yesterday. Made yogurt in the crockpot (it's a little runny, but tastes fine), made "artisan" bread that is super easy and super yummy, and chocolate chip cookies from the King Arthur Flour book. They don't look like that special, but I think they are the tastiest choc chip cookies I've ever had. As well as making a decent supper.
The snow hasn't melted yet, so Bob took the children to Jesse's Mom's house to ride behind his 4-wheeler in an inner tube. It was a lot of fun last time. I'm home with Elijah so he can nap. I'm also trying a Lentil Chili recipe for lunch. Better go check on it.
