So What do I do Now?

So as my time here in Montana gets shorter and shorter,so does at my time at my jobs here. Since I will be headed to Texas for a 2 week visit in April, and then be crazy with packing and moving in May, I have decided to make March the last month of work for me...

I only have a few more shifts left at the Boutique (a quaint downtown clothing shop where I work part time) and only a few more weeks at The Collins Mansion. I started working the summer I was 15 years old, when I took my first job at the Bulverde Bakery. Ever since then I have worked. Except for the months I lived in Australia, I have always worked. I am not sure what I am going to do with myself.

It's a weird concept not to be looking for a job in the place we are moving.

I haven't decided whether or not to be a working mom eventually (kinda just gonna see how it goes and see how I feel when the time comes) But I know for sure that I will want at least the first few months at home with the baby, so that means I won't start working at least until October or November of this year.

So anyway, my last months here I still have my responsibilities with the Malsmtrom Spouses Club, hanging out with my fab friends, getting ready for the move and preparing for Baby Beene. I guess it'll just have to be something I'll have to get used to.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Below are some of the jobs I have loved over the years!

2005 waitress at The Cotton Patch Cafe

Hello everyone! It has been suggested to me by several people that I should blogging since I will soon be moving around the world and having my first baby! There is so much going on that I feel the only way to let everyone know whats going on is to actually keep up with this blog:) I will try to post updates as much as I can so sorry if I end up sharing wayyyy too much! Here it goes, hope everyone enjoys!

Right now, I am nearly 19 weeks pregnant, it is March 12, 2012. We get to find out the sex of the baby in 2 weeks! I am excited to know for sure, but I just feel so certain that it is a boy already, so we'll see if my gut feeling is right.  I felt the baby move for the first time about a week ago. I wasn't quite sure if I was feeling the right thing, but after a few days I was sure. Sometimes I feel like it's so crazy that a person is actually growing inside me! It's still hard to believe that I am almost half way through the pregnancy sheesh.

As far as moving to England goes, Jeffrey and I are still waiting to get exact travel dates (will be sometime in late May or early June)because there are so many clearances we have to get done before they will issue them. For example, I have to be cleared by a regular doc, a dentist and mental check. Hopefully I will finish all the clearances this week, so we can get our travel arranged:) We have looked up housing in England and we think we want to live off base because it seems there are much better options, but we'll have to wait until we get there to be sure. We plan on selling both our cars and buying new ones once we get over seas. ( I am trying to talk Jeffrey into getting a Vespa! I have always wanted one:) -fun note there, in England you can buy child seats for the back of the Vespa, but its not legal here in the U.S haha.

Well, this is just what is going on right now, I am sure there will be more to come soon.
