Laid off but still getting by

It has been 2 months since Nick was laid off from his job with the wind turbines. They told us to expect a call back in June but after 2 months of sitting around he was beginning to get stir crazy. We looked into buying a house and made an offer on one but couldn’t get the financing approved in the end because of lack of income at the moment. So, I have been working at a daycare here in town for the past 2 months and losing weight very quickly from all the running and lifting I have been doing. This makes me happy! Nick just got hired on with a construction job and seems to be happy with it although it was a big paycut. So although we aren’t living lavishly we are getting by and happy.
Lulu is the funniest dog. She is wild and not scared of anything! She is quite the hunter–we have to keep her on a leash because she likes to follow her nose and we aren’t always able to keep up. We went camping last weekend and she drove everybody crazy with her leash under their feet and tripping them. But she had a blast and in the end we were all tired and dirty. Hopefully I am able to get back on here soon and update more often–off to wrestle 3 year olds right now—gotta put on my warpaint!

I worry about the environment. I cloud gaze often. I dream of the sea. Doodler. Waitress. Nomad of sorts. River swimmer. I have a small westie named Lulu that I sleep with like a stuffed animal. And maybe one day they will say, "and who was she really anyway?"
