How Long Has It Been???

OK... where do I start??? It has been so long since my last post, that I forgot my Blogger password! Nice!

Well, first I will start off by saying that my so-called 10-week Census job will end this week... boo-hoo! What was supposed to take 10 weeks, actually took about 3 weeks.
We were just too efficient! So I will have some time next week to update the blog more often! Hoooray!

Mark's parents visited us during Easte
r week. It was a great time for all of us! I worked the maximum amount of hours and Shayna got to play with her Grammie and Granddad! Because Mark and I were gone for the majority of the week, I only got one picture!!! From what I hear, the trio went to see a movie, played at the park, and went for walks! The weather was great so they had a great time! Also, Lynn cooked us dinner every night, did our laundry, and gave Shayna a beautiful hairdo every day! What more could we have asked for??? Art and Lynn even bought us an amazing grill for our wedding anniversary! We owe them many thanks and they both are certainly welcome to come here for next year's Easter Break, as well! Thanks again!!! I must add that I do have the BEST in-laws in the world!

Busy... Busy... Busy...

The past week has been a bit hectic for me. I started my new job with the Census Bureau and it has taken me a little while to adjust. I am walking for 4 to 5 hours straight, which in all likelihood, no one is used to. I am having a blast, though. My coworkers are great and the people that I speak to are so friendly. It seems that just about everyone I speak with is interested in the Census... and why not? As per Wikipedia, "The United States Census is a decennial census mandated by the United States Constitution.[1] The population is enumerated every 10 years and the results are used to allocate Congressional seats (congressional apportionment), electoral votes, and government program funding.[2] Some states or local jurisdictions also conduct local censuses."

This morning, Shayna ran in her very first race. A 1K event held in Seal Beach. I ran the 5K event and placed 845 out of over 1900 participants! I also broke my PR by almost a minute! Yay! Needless to say, Shayna was so very excited to receive a "Champions" ribbon at the end of her race!
