mixing things up at the Springer house...

We have had a lot of changes around here over the last few weeks, so I thought I'd share...

-Scott quit his night job delivering pizza. Though I will totally miss the delish freebie pizza, poor Scotty man was getting WAY too burnt out.

- I landed a SWEET job. My brother-in-law Danny works for a small programming company...long story short, they are all much too busy and important to do all the mundane contract work and formatting required for their job, so they offered to pay me 15 bucks an hour to do it from home. Oh, and they gave me a brand new laptop just to make my life a little easier.

I love you CodeSmart Inc...thank you for making all my wildest stay-at-home-mom dreams come true.

- Scott will be starting GRAD SCHOOL in two weeks!! He got his official acceptance today. We have been looking into lots of options and finally decided to take the "online" approach. I know it sounds hokey, like one of things you see on a cheap commercial...but this is totally legit. Scott will be getting his Masters in Accounting through the University of Phoenix. He will still work full time and do school at night. this will work out perfectly because the kids go to bed SUPER early and I just like to work anyway. Heaven forbid I actually get to spend time with my hubby.

Things should start to get a little crazy around here...stay tuned for more insanity!

That is awesome that everything is working out for you guys. I would love to have a stay-at-home job, but I am ok where I am at too. So I guess you won't be coming back to Utah?
