It's Easter Sunday. I did some last minute shopping yesterday for Caleb's Easter basket. Nothing fancy, just simple and little goodies for him to enjoy on a beautiful Easter morning. I also got him a cute Easter bunny but he didn't much care for it, lol! He dove right through the basket when he woke up this morning. It's pretty much a bit of a busy day. We went to church and he took a nap. As of this writing, he's still asleep. I'm going to take this opportunity to set up the eggs in the backyard so he can have a little fun egg hunting once he wakes up. I hope it won't be too chilly to be outside later. It's sunny but seems kinda a bit windy when we went out this morning. So I'm not sure if it will get better here in a little bit. Montana weather is fickle-minded like a woman, lol! Anyway, wishing you all Happy Easter!

We were excited to hear from my DIL. He called us last night and told us he did book a flight to Montana to visit us a week from now. We were indeed surprised. He lived in Arkansas and he's 72 years old. We never thought he's still up for plane travels. But he wanted to see his grandson again because it has been a while since they met. Caleb was less than a year old when they first met. First on Caleb's Christening Day, and the second time was when we went there to spend New Years. Since we move to Montana, I never thought we'd have this chance to see each other again. It was a pleasant surprise. Now we have a week to prepare for his visit. Our guest room needs a bed so we will probably take care of that first, lol! We just purchased this house recently so we're not really set up yet as far as the rooms are concerned. Not to mention Jeff and I are big time procrastinators, lol! So I guess it's a good thing that his Dad is coming over, so we're going to be pushed to take care of house stuff like buying a bed, and planning on where to take him for a tour while he's here for 7 days. We're excited and I hope Caleb gets to bond with his Grandpa soon.

It has been a while since I was last interviewed for a job. Today, I received a call from the bank that I was applying for a position in the Accounting Department. They wanted to see me for an interview later today. Oh boy, that got me nervous and at the same time excited. I never realized how much I wanted to go back to work until I got that call today. I had to dig through my stuff to see if any of my old office attire would still fit me, lol! I have gained weight since I gave birth so I'm not sure if I can still fit in any of my old clothes. Thankfully though, I found a nice pair of black trousers, white inner blouse and a blazer that still fits alright, I guess, lol! Well, I didn't look that awful when I carefully examined myself in the mirror. So I guess that would have to do.
Now the hardest part is actually preparing for the interview. I've looked online for possible job interview questions and outlined my answers so I can get myself familiarized with them. It feels like I'm preparing for a big school exams, lol! I want to do this right since I would love to have a job in Accounting but if despite my best efforts, I wouldn't get this, I'm okay with it. That is what hubby and I told myself, lol! Anyway, I can stay a full time housewife and mom as long as I like. No pressure here. I just wanted to try my luck in the corporate world again because to be honest, I missed the adult interaction and being in an office. So wishing myself goodluck on my 2nd job interview here in the U.S.
Anyway, this picture is where I used to work with almost 4 years ago. I was a PC Support Specialist (IS department) at Bank of the Ozarks.
