When It Rains... It Pours...

It's true about a lot of things in our life right now. For one it has literally rained (and flooded) this past week in Knoxville. Yesterday I took Torri out with me to do some errands and we had to walk through about 2 inches of water outside Old Navy. We also saw lots of flooding on the sides of the road. But what I really wanted to tell you all about is this... Tim has finally gotten a job offer, and probably two more. It's hard to believe that you can go almost six months with out a single job offer, then get three at once.

The position he was officially offered is in Sevierville (it's in the Smokey Mountains, near Dollywood) to be an associate. It is contingent on him passing the bar, but Tim gets his results in about three weeks. And then he could start work immediately after. He would paid per case, and if he puts in lots of work, he could make a lot of money there.

The second is also an associate position in Johnson City. Tim is one of two people being considered and has a final interview with the firm in early October. This is the one I would love. It's far enough away from family to have our own lives, but close enough to see them at least once a month. The pay is 10% more then the one in Sevierville, along with having a boss who agrees that family should come before work. But again he would have to work long hard hours.

The third firm considering him is also in Sevierville. They are looking for an associate to do mostly paperwork. At that one he would not be doing many cases on his own, so unlike the other two positions it is salaried, not per case.
So we have a lot of choices ahead of us and some rain in the forecast tomorrow...

Family Night

So my mom got it in her head that she thinks we should have a family home evening together. Since we played games and ate, instead of having a spiritual lesson, I'm pretty sure it was more like game night, but at least we had fun. Tim & I tried to teach my mom & Torri how to play pinochle, then we played dominoes. Gabby started playing with us by making shapes and castles out of dominoes, then she just started sticking them down her shirt.

Gabby's Wild Party

Gabby & her friends had so much fun at the zoo; they got to see lots of animals, pet some animals, watch the bird show, pretend to run their own zoo, eat cupcakes, open presents, splash in the water, and ride in the wagon when they were tired. Gabby & Ramey even got into some of the presents.

Since Gabby was only getting clothes & bedding for her birthday presents, we had her open them at home with just us.

Lazy Days

Don't you wish your kid was as cute as mine? She may be the rottenest kid in the whole wide world, but at least she looks adorable while causing all that trouble.
Anyways, not much has been going on this week, just planning for Gabby's big 4th Birthday. We will have it at the Zoo with a few friends and family.
