Well, now I can talk! Nate had applied for a job with Clatsop County Corrections. He passed the written exam, the PT exam and the interview. Yesterday the man doing the hiring came to Newport! He sat and talked with me, and went to Englund Marine to talk with Nate’s boss. He has an interview with the Sheriff on Jan 3 and an appointment for a mental exam on Jan 4. If he passes these last two tests, he should have the job! This would mean he would start in Feb for academy in the valley and our house goes on the market. As soon as we find out if he gets this job, we get a new car!! I will stay at out house while he is in academy and until the house sells, don’t really want to to live with parents and can not afford rent and mortgage. So, we will see how long it takes to sell this house. Nate’s boss is pissed because he did not say anything to him about applying for the job. But last time Nate said something, his job went straight to the papers and he heard that his kinda manager said “if they hire someone, Nate will probably be fired.” His boss doesn’t get it. So, pray he gets this job because if he doesn’t I don’t think Englund Marine will be nice to him anymore. We’ll see how the next few weeks go for Nate.

On another note, we where sick again!!!! This time, Ash got sick Sunday and was barfing all day. Then Monday night, Nate spends the night in the bathroom. Ash starts barfing again. Thank goodness Von was here, because I started getting sick early Tuesday morning. It was mayhem in this house, we are still recovering. None of us wants to eat and Ash is still going through diapers like crazy. But we are all hydrated and recovering. So, hopefully by x-mas we will be perfect. P.S. Tuesday was my b-day.. Happy Birthday to me

I am looking for a new home.
My name is Oxford and I am 3 ½ years old.
My family has a hard time keeping up with me, so I need someone who can take me places and keep me busy. I whine like crazy because no one pays attention to me and I shed a lot.
I love to run, eat and chase balls. I am about 85 pounds and strong.
I will follow you everywhere and I like to stay by my master’s side. I am good with other dogs and kids, but I do get excited and tend to knock them down. I like cats, but as soon as they run, I will chase them. I can be an outside or inside dog. I am house broken, micro chipped, neutered and up to date on my shots. I was adopted from a Corvallis pound and don’t want to go back. I need a committed family to take care of me. I come with my crate, flea medicine, toys and food. My family is desperate to find me a home, and I need someone to play with.
Call my house at 541-563-4456 and talk to Nate
I live in Waldport Oregon on the coast.

We had a great Thanksgiving. My mom and stepdad came down to hang with us. Brian helped Nate tackle some house projects that we didn’t know what to do with. So, we got some siding replaced and a new back porch light. I love it!! With it getting darker out, it is nice to see in the backyard for a change. Ash and I got sick over the holiday also. We decided to cook Friday because I went grocery shopping on Wednesday and was exhausted. I did not want to cook Thursday. I will never go to the grocery store on the day before I holiday again. So, Thursday we celebrated my mom’s birthday. I made a chocolate cheesecake that was awesome! But at the end of the night, I was not feeling good so I was taking it easy. We where all sitting on the couch and Nate had given Ash his first bite of cheesecake. Instantly he started fussing and I knew he was going to throw up. So I scooped him and ran to the bathroom and sure enough he puked all over me. And since I was not feeling well also, I was up all night doing the same thing. The next day we where better, but Nate cooked and mom and Brian helped. Nate got up at 4am with Brian and they hit the sales on Friday. So, my amazing husband went shopping at 5am, cooked dinner and installed a back light on Friday while I chilled on the couch most of the day.

So, we have installed a floor in our sunroom since then and I love it. It looks so much better then the indoor/outdoor carpet we had. It it officially Ash’s playroom and it is great. Toys come out and I can close the door and ignore it all if I want to. We survived the storm, lost power for about a day and a half. Not bad, but it was nice to get heat and hot water back. About four trees within a block fell and a neighbors roof was blown apart (just the tabs).

Not much otherwise. My last day at work is the 21st, then I start babysitting. Ash has fizzled on the potty chair, but at least we know he knows what it is for. He is trying to wink and it is very funny. One of these days, I will post the video of him trying. Nate and I are considering getting second car, which I really hope we do. One car gets old really fast and we have been doing it for over a year now. We’ll see, maybe….
