First off, it’s way passed my bed time to be writing a blog post. I have had to get up at 4:15am to be at work by 5am for the last few weeks and its 11:45pm. So I’m pretty tired right now. Luckily though, tomorrow is my day off so I feel ok with staying up past 10(I know that’s pathetic). Life has been interesting here at the Claridge homestead. Danica’s full time job ends Sunday. The good news-she just got a job offer for a part time position that she is going to take!

Almost everyone at Cabelas has had their hours reduced due to lack of customers. Some of the guys in Hunting have had their hours chopped as low as 15 hours a week. The good news-About two weeks ago my manager pulled me aside and offered me a new job. My new title is Hunting Department Merchandiser. Yep, fancy way of saying I’m the stock boy for hunting and I get to try and fix the back end to front in problems. (T. W. S. S.)…..(I don’t know who is reading this, but if you watch the office, you should know what that means.) I get 38-40 hours a week and they’ll work with my schedule when school starts.

Danica and I are very excited for the baby and can’t wait tell he is here with us. We really don’t have much for him now and defiantly don't have any room for him right now. The good news-A girl from Danica’s work threw her a baby shower today and got the kid some cloths, different little things and a gift card to babies R us. Danica is going to have a couple more baby showers with people who care very much for her and the baby. Also, we are moving to a two bedroom, two bath at the end of the month and our rent will be less money than what we pay now.

There always seems to be some problem that Danica and I are facing, but we have kept our heads up and the good news just keeps coming. When I decided to write this post, I didn’t know what I was going to write about. I just wanted to tell everyone that Danica is doing really good. She is such a trooper and is defiantly cute pregnant! She is going to be such a good mom. I don’t know what this kid did in the prelife to get such amazing parents :) but he did something right!

I agree. You will both be amazing parents. Just keep doing the best you can and the Lord will keep blessing you.

Yes, the boy is a lucky one. We are excited to meet the little guy. I'm glad things are going well for you two. Congratulations on your promotion and more hours at Cabelas. You are doing awesome. I'm glad Danica got a new job as well. That is a relief for sure.
