I know I've been MIA lately... It's hard to believe I haven't posted since August! Life has been kind of crazy, and between work, school, every day life, and the holidays, I just haven't really been online much outside of doing homework for the cost accounting class that I am so glad to be finished with! I think it was the hardest class I've had (mostly because the teacher was such a tool) I had to teach myself the course, but I still managed to eek by an A thankfully! I'm just relieved it's over now, and I get a little break from all things school until the 3rd.

Good news I hadn't mentioned yet; the manager that was making my life hell was pushed to leave on a good note (over getting fired for incompetence and laziness), and I had been given my old position back. I had applied for the inventory control clerk position two weeks after that and was told in the middle of November that I got it! Things have been a lot better in my department as I train my replacement. I could have stayed, but honestly, I'm tired of the way they use me for what ever function they want and cut my hours to give them a better CPH (cartons per man hour) The inventory position guarantees 40 hours a week, it's a step in the further progression of my knowledge that will help me in my career, and it relieves me of being the department's door mat. I should be starting my new position sometime in the next couple weeks! :)

I did write a little something for Christmas for a prompt made by [profile] frostydragon! at Spank_World here: http://spanking-world.livejournal.com/384590.html

The family is well, we had pictures taken for Christmas: https://pattoncreek-hoover-al.portraits.com/-jenniferjenks/gallery

I'm excited to see their reaction this year for Christmas. They've wanted to watch the Elf on a Shelf movie practically everyday since 'Jack' (Lucian named his elf last Christmas) appeared about two weeks ago :P The past ten days he's diligently been marking off on the calendar how many days until Santa comes. Too dang adorable :)

I'm going to do my best to be better about getting online more often to keep up with my friends here. I hope everyone is doing well and that your holidays are made of win!

I haven't updated in a while, but I and the fam have been well :) Lucian is almost fully potty trained! *squee!* He still has accidents every now and then in the mornings, but has been going without prompting these past few weeks, so I'm super proud of him :) He's got Fox, Cat, Dog, Nox, Mom, Dad, Egg, and Pig down pat. We went to see an arthritis doctor about Jason's hands and feet swelling (he's been coping with this since around 2008, we got him some meds to try out and see if they help) but while we were in the waiting room, Lucian impressed me and the people he was interacting with by phonetically spelling out 'triangle!' (I'm such a proud mommy!) Nox has been pulling up on everything and using it to move about, I see him walking any time now! He's also wearing 12 to 18 month clothes! Getting so big! XD

I've been coming home from work a couple hours early this week ...from feast to famine I swear!... Can't wait till the college gives me my tax info! They wait until the 31st *sigh* and I'm feeling impatient :P

Been doing a lot of writing! YAY! Next chapter has been updated below the cut ;)

Promised a few pics and videos from Christmas, I wanted to share a few from the trip to see my dad and extended family, but when we went to take pics, we got two and realized the memory was out (because I didn't transfer the Christmas stuff from Friday off the camera... boo on me! Oo

But, even without pictures and videos to share from the trip, we had a very nice relaxing visit outside of Lucian acting out a bit. The kids got lots of toys which Lucian has laid claim to LOL! And Jason and I also got some very nice gifts from the rents to enjoy. I got a few things from my Amazon wish list that I've been wanting badly! Some paint gear stuff to get me started painting with some real tools rather than the crap brushes I have now Yay! Now if I can muster up some time to work on something *eyebrow wiggle*

I know I missed day 6 where [personal profile] ashmedai gave me a fun question to answer. (I will be answering it tomorrow I'm hoping... I'm just kind of brain dead at the moment! Oo) Sorry my sweet! Your question requires thinking, so I want to take my time for it! ;)

This weekend has been pretty chock full of stuff that I've fallen behind pretty badly internet wise! oO

I woke up this morning with a smile on my face thinking about all the things I hold dear and appreciate.

I'm thankful for:

My kids, they make every day worth striving to be a better person

My husband, who taught me the meaning of commitment

My family, for giving me life, memories, and an understanding of what it is to love someone even if at times you feel like you've hated them

My friends, you've given me your heart, your shoulder, and inspiration, laughs, and joy

My cats, you always know when I need a nuzzle

My school, for giving me opportunity to be something more

My job, for providing a stable earning to feed my family

My health, so that I can rise every morning and enjoy life

There is so much to be thankful for; I couldn't possibly list it all (and if I did, it'd likely bore you to tears! LOL!) But I did want to drop by and say that I hope everyone's Thanksgiving has been good and to know that you are all loved *snugs and hugs!*

I did have a little video to share of Nox and Lucian ;)

I'm seriously glad to be home! I still have a few days left before I have to go back to work, and me and the family are relaxing.

So the smoky mountains... we left out a couple hours later than we'd wanted, but since the DVR had started deleting episodes, so we wanted to get some TV watching in before we left town to make sure we didn't lose anymore, so we didn't get to bed until around 2AM :P We did get the first four episodes of Doctor Who watched which was fun.

So the day was going pretty well. Had an okay day at work and got home at a decent time. I had just sat down to get comfortable when my dad called to tell me that my cousin, Ben, was found dead around midnight last night. No one is really sure what happened, but his girlfriend said she had left him on the couch to go to bed getting up in the middle of the night to check on him because he hadn't come to bed only to find him dead on the floor in his own vomit :( I spoke to his mom, and they think it may have been suffocation due to the fact he'd been drinking, but they won't know until the autopsy comes in. My cousin and I haven't been very close since we were kids as life goes on around us and everyone gets busy doing their own life things and kind of loses touch, but I am very sad to know I'll never see him again. I feel worse for his 8 and 12 year old daughters who not only lost him but on the 3rd lost their maternal grandmother... it's a tough pill to swallow. I'd like to go to the funeral, but it's going to be in MA, and I just don't have the money to make a trip like that on such short notice :(

This week has just flown by! I honestly don't know where the hours went! I haven't posted my positive updates since last Friday, so I'll try to sum up the week...

I was going on a pretty good clip with my positive posts, but Thursday was just absolutely horrid, and I was pressed to see the positive. Thinking back though, I got to sit down and read a couple books with Lucian where Nox was equally interested.



Spending time with the kids is always a plus. I honestly can't even remember anything more about that day other than it was draining. The days that followed were not bad but super hectic, so I just didn't have time to reflect and post. So, I'll do a brief catch up here as well as share a couple pics of the cat family (since I haven't shared pics of them in forever and [personal profile] ashmedai had wanted to see a pic of Kit-Kat (the female tabby that I've been told is a rarity :D)

...Brought to you by the letter P and the number 6! XD Can you tell I live with a toddler? LOL!

1) I was exhausted this morning... Nox was tossing and turning and my nose was chafed from blowing it all night last night. I was dreading work with only 2.5 hours of sleep, but the day actually went really smoothly. I didn't really feel like I was going to fall out like some days, and I think a lot of that was because I stayed pretty busy. My boss complimented Shannon and I for doing a great job right before I left which always makes me feel good. (I've also consecutively gotten at least an hour over 8hrs every day (since they have Shannon and I working six days but only really want us putting in 8hrs, I'm really looking forward to that pay check next week! Woot! =D)

2) Came home to the family and actually got in the pool with Lucian (verse watching from outside the pool... which is half the time :P) Of course we played with his new toy fish, and we also played catch with his water football when he wasn't demanding I piggyback him around the pool LOL! He made me get my exercise for sure! Jason made us a really nice meal of baked well seasoned tilapia and french cut green beans while Nox and I relaxed on the bed to breast feed after Lucian and I got our showers and played the daily color game (I have a ceramic fox cookie jar I picked up from Cracker Barrel (if you don't know, I absolutely ADORE foxes!) it hold a bunch of M&M's, and it's a 'game' Lucian wants to play every time he is brought to the bathroom to point at it and yell" FOX!" of course! :P

3) I made today my kick back and relax day after finishing my student responses for the discussion board. I've been dying to catch up on my emails, and the first thing I did was read the next chapter to a wonderful story [profile] ficwriterjet has been writing for me! She is amazingly good to me! *snuggles her tight!* It's a Once Upon a Time fic based off a plot bunny I had, and she has turned it into so much more! Please give her some love and check out the win! ---> https://www.fanfiction.net/s/9076372/1/A-Spell-Gone-Wrong

Now then, I'm going to do my best to widdle down the over 130 emails I have currently in my inbox! 0o

So, I'm a bit distressed. The work I'm doing has been okay so far, but the past two weeks I've gotten about 38 hours... which makes for a sorry paycheck when you are used to working an average of 50+ a week. I'm a little scared because yesterday and today I only was able to get 8hrs and then 9hrs with an 'expected' 8hrs a day on average while the volume is low... 4 days a week! Around 32hrs a week? Are you fucking kidding me?! =( I can't support my family on that being the sole provider, not to mention they are pulling $146.62 a week out of my check for insurance (normally $131) for back pay for the last month before I returned for work. It's really stressing me out :(

On the positive side, I had a rough week for school work, and the extra time gave me what I needed to get my final project done that I somehow managed to misread at first (most classes I've taken at CTU, the last assignment is usually an add on to the previous week's major project (this was a 10 to 12 slide Powerpoint with 200-300 words per slide) the next week was the same making the project a 20 to 24 slide project... I spent from 1PM to midnight working on that as I misread it to be an additive of quality management of 2 to 3 slides as it looked almost identical to the first... thankfully I noted the difference and was able to get it done on time! Yay! This teacher is also super fast with grading! =D

So, I needed a pic me up from the hell life has been throwing at me, and Nox complied by giving us a first time laugh! =D I of course rushed to get the camera as all doting parents are prone to do. I have a couple super cute brother pics of Lucian and Nox to share as well, Lucian loves his little brother so :)

So, Tuesday I was hailed to the ops manager's office walked up there by the manager of my department and my supervisor (to which I'm thinking oh shit, did I fuck something up so bad somehow that I'm going to be fired? ...I had the week previously had to cover both clerk positions doing everything myself, so I thought maybe I might have made a mistake by overlooking something. I'm very anal retentive about my work though, and thankfully that was not the case.)

First of all, it's been a great birthday! =D Lunch at Logan's then went see How to train your dragon 2 (which is super awesome and Toothless is made of adorable! Like that's a surprise right?) followed by a trip to the comic store to order figures for my pirates D&D campaign I'm running and an ice cream cone to top off the day. Lucian probably enjoyed the day as much as I did! LOL! He made a little friend at the comic book store and didn't want to leave :P

[profile] dillonmania was awesome enough to write me a ficlet for the Flash Rogues Roscoe(the Top) and Lisa (Golden Glider) that you can check out here! : http://dillonmania.livejournal.com/11077.html Thank you so much my sweet! =D

These guys are great and affordable! =D

Check out Nox's baby pics with Lucian that we took at the hospital! Go to https://www.bellababyphotography.com/ with access code: tfol0417jenks to see them. The photographer did an excellent job, and both kids were in a good mood making for great pictures :P (You have to check them out by 5/1/14 before they get taken down) We ordered the digital copy for $135, so expect to see them again without the logo as soon as the CD arrives! :) They sent them via email! So I can share them now! YAY! =D

I had originally planned to buy these after I returned to work, but Scott being the super sweet awesome best friend bought them for us as a gift :)
