A night at the fair

I took the girl and the twins to the fair last night. Despite living in the same town where it's held for 18 years, it was my first time. I have very fond memories of my parents taking me to the fair, so it was nice to pass that on to my own children. They had a nice time and the twins had a blast riding the kids ride. The girl unfortunately was too big for the kiddie rides and too scared of the big rides, so only got to go on the carousel. But i let her get a henna tattoo,  and that made her happy. So good times all around. It's rare I feel successful in pleasing my children, so this is going down on the victory list.

I have been promoted!  I am now an asst manager (part time. But will hopefully become full time in the next 6 mths or so) at the dress store. It came with a raise, so that's awesome. Even though retail is not really my dream job, it's a great opportunity and has done wonders for my confidence.  And my wardrobe, Ha. It's a shame I am required to dress fashionably for my job. ;)  although for those of you who know me irl, you know I tend to be a rather eclectic dresser. So having to dress with intention has been an interesting journey for me. It's fun though. It's like I've been given permission to play dress up as an adult.

So all is as well as it can be for the moment. The kids just got progress reports and they are all doing pretty well. And now suddenly I am wondering what's going to go wrong. Usually about the time life is going smoothly something comes along to throw a wrench in the works. But. For now I will embrace the good and believe in its continuation.
