Crazy Months

I know I haven't blogged in a month or so, but it has been crazy around here with school, holidays, birthdays, and Seans work. I have not had a moment to myself. Since I need to be done with school by June 15th, I won't have any time for the next few months. Here's a brief rundown since Cians Birthday....

1. We live next door to the trashiest group of people ever. They have at least 3 or 4 different families living in the 3 or 4 bedroom house. At least a dozen kids run the place and love to throw trash (empty cans, water bottles, juice boxes) over our block wall, into our backyard. Anyone who knows my husband, knows he won't tolerate such behavior. So what does he do, throws the crap back over the wall. The kids think this is a game and throw the crap back over. So Sean yelled at the little punks and hit one of them in the head with a can. Some women yelled at him and of course he yells back, "control your kids lady." That was one incident. He had another run in with some guy who was allowing his little kids to drive a remote control truck in our driveway. Sean was backing out and didn't see the truck, and almost ran it over. The guy got right in Seans face, cussing him out, trying to get him to get out of the van and fight him. Sean laughed in his face and told him he was a great influence for his kids. When Sean came back, the guy was waiting for him, calling him names and telling him I was having guys over all the time. Of course, that pissed Sean off even more and he yelled at me. As if it was my fault. Needless to say, once he calmed down he was more rational and decided maybe we should consider moving after the baby is born. Our lease is up June 1st and the baby isn't due until the 25th. Lots to think about for the time being.

2. The next morning, Sean took the day off and was chilling, reading Twitter when he noticed CNN announced something huge that had to do with his company. Of course he had to call work to find out if it was true, which it was. For the rest of the afternoon he was on conference calls with his boss and his associates. Of course no one knows what the future will bring, so everyone is panicking. Nothing will happen for at least a year, so its business as usual until then.

3. Of course last weekend was Easter. That was crazy. Sean bought 3 dozen plastic eggs to hide. I put all the baskets together, which took forever. The kids were up at 6am sneaking candy from their baskets. So Sean and I had no choice but to get up. The first ten minutes we let the kids have a candy free for what a sight. Then it was egg hunting time. Since Mary was out with us first, she had scoped the living room out for eggs and had a huge advantage over the boys. It was pretty cute. In the end, Mary found the most eggs and Declan found the grand prize silver egg. He was pretty proud of himself.

4. As if things weren't crazy enough at Seans work, he was at a meeting at a ballpark last Thursday when the P&L guy pulled him over to tell him there was a problem with their invertory again. This had been going on for the last 6 months, but got better in Feb. Well, March was really bad so Sean had the guy come into the store on Friday to go over all the paperwork with him. Long story short, for the last six months, since Seans assistant manager had started at his store, there had been tuns of high end electronics missing. Several of the employees noticed the guy leaving the store at closing with boxes and bags full of stuff. Of course none of them said anything to Sean until this week. So they went through the video and sure enough, the guy would go into the vault with empty bags and boxes, and come out with them full. Apparently he had been doing this for the last two years and three different stores within the company. They determined he stole about $50,000 worth of merchandise. (That he admitted to.) He has to pay it all back, or the company will press charges. Needless to say, everyone was fooled by this guy. An outstanding employee, very good at his job and Seans right hand man. Sean was really upset. More because he felt stupid for not knowing than anything else. So now he is short an assistant manager and will have to work more hours. On the plus side, he has an interview, finally with the manager of another department within the company this week. It would get him out of all this retail BS and more independence, which is what he's better at. Plus, no uniform and a pay raise! Keep your fingers crossed.

So that was been our month in a nutshell. Not very pleasant, but we're getting through it. Its time to focus on positive things like Fionns 4th Birthday on Thursday and BIN LAUDIN IS DEAD!!!!!!! Hope everyone is having a great week!
