the universe is starting to take note of what I am going for, and it feels good. I had a job interview yesterday at ToysRUs (the first one after 2 months of applications) and it went really well. I definitely expect to receive a call early next week when they get my background check back with an offer of employment. The interviewer was impressed, the pregnancy didn't seem to be an issue, and it felt really good. She actually said, "I can't, of course, tell you that I'm hiring you right now but I think you are perfect for this job." Wheee! It's only going to be part-time right now, but that may be a blessing until after I have the baby. And it's with a company that I respect a lot. I am keeping the thumb screws on the universe until it comes through on this. I need this job.
We took lil man to the park yesterday after the interview and he tromped around as "Adventurer Lukas". He took all the hardest paths to everywhere he wanted to be, tromping over mud, huge tree roots, ditches, etc. Seemed to be having the time of his life doing it. And then when we finally got him in the playground, he acted so big. He actually rode the merry-go-round thing by himself, standing up like a daredevil and holding on with both hands. He thinks he's so big :). I only regret that we didn't have the camera with us so that I could take pictures.
*yawn* having trouble waking up today. I slept a full hour later than I usually do and felt like I could have stayed in bed for another couple of hours. This time change is really messing with me still. I just can't get to sleep and then I can't wake up. I hate spring forward time.
