As most people know, I am an assistant maanger for an apartment complex. I love my job! I love working with all the different people and love seeing all their backgrounds. I love seeing where everyone is from, we have them from all over! It is just so cool!

Part of my job is to take the applications and process them to get approved. We have 3 simple requirement, like all apartments do. 1) Possitive rental history- meaning you don't have and eviction, forclosure, or a lot of NSF checks. It means that you have 2 years of good rental history that your landlord would totally rent to you again if you came back. Simple as that. 2) Possitive credit- meaning you don't have 3 accounts and all or most are in collections. You have everything in good standing. and 3) you can prove that you make 3 times the rent amount as your income. This is sometimes hard, because there are quite a few people the get paid under the counter in cash. Not an easy thing to prove. Well, most of the time we ask you for your last 3 paystubs. We calculate your monthly income and if it is 3 times the rent you are good.

Well, Most of the time, we approve everyone, wether by themselves or with a co-signer. Other times, like yesterday, I have to be the bad guy and tell them that they are declines and to come and pick up their deposit. Normally people are very understanding and will just say okay and pick up their checks, unfurtunately, yesterday was not that easy. Without give to much info, the person was declined for not meeting any of the requirements. So, it has been my displeassure of being yelled at for 2 days by this person. This person keeps telling me how discrimative I am being towards him because of his last name. OMG!!!!!!!!! That is rediculous! I wanted to tell him that I didn't care if he was a >>>>> or a Smith. Either way he wasn't approved. So, he was telling me that he was going to sue us and me for discrimination, well I told him to go ahead and try, but it wouldn't go anywhere. He continued to yell at me for the longest time and normally I can just deal with it, but after 2 days I was so tired of it and hung up on him and that was all I was going to put up with. I was tired of being yelled at and tired of hearing the bad language.

Well, today, after hanging up on him I get another call from someone else that knows our policy for pest control and thinks that they are special enough for me to bend the rules for them. After telling them know and seeing if they want to schedule for next week, they just scream and hang up. OMG what is with people and yelling today! Days like this make me want to hind in my house and never talk to another person ever again, or just to punch them in the face, but I could never do either one.

I am a nice person, at least that is what everyone tells me! But maybe sometimes I think I need to be not nice so people don't think they can just walk right over me and treat me like that. But I never will, because that is just not who I am. Every time I will just smile, while yelling at them in my head, calmly answer them and tell them how it is. Heavenly Father has blessed me with patience and I am going to be putting it to good use at the is job with some people.

Friendly Reminder

Last night while talking to one of my dearest and bestest friends ever, lindi lu, she reminded me that I have not updated my blog in a while. So, here I am with my camera pluged in, looking at all the pictures that I have not shared with everyone. So let the stories begin.

When leaving for work sometime last month, Michael put Aaron in my drivers seat with me to say good bye. It starting like this...

and ended like this.....he wants to drive already! Smart boy!

Isn't that the cutest smile ever!!!!

Since I was little, I have always looked forward to the day I would have my son or daughter, and be able to take them to all the fun stuff for the holidays. Well, everyone that knows me, knows that Halloween and Christmas are my 2 FAVORITE holidays ever. Well, Monday night for FHE I decided that I wanted to take Aaron to the pumpkin patch. I know he doesn't quite understand it yet seeing how he is only 6 1/2 months old, but as you can see in the pictures below, he really did look like he had fun! He is so eexspressive. I love it.

I promise it is just the angle, but my little boy is not really that FAT. He is a big boy at 20lbs but not that big.

4 years of marriage

4 years ago today, I married my best friend. If I was told that day what my life would have consisted of, I would never have believed them. We have done so many wonderful things in this 4 years. We have moved every summer to a new place, Fresno to Daly City, Daly City to Taiwan, Taiwan to Pacifica, Pacifica back to Fresno. We have traveled to exotic places such as Tahiti, Mexico, Taiwan (for 1 year), Hong Kong Disneyland, and Mexico again. We have made such wonderful friends, Tans, Seastrands, Rowlands, Picaduras, Wisers and so many more. And now at 4 years, we have a BEAUTIFUL baby boy. We are both just so in love with him.
We have also had our really hard times. We have known what it is like to not have any money to even buy food or gas. To pay our tithing and have faith that Heavenly father won't let us starve to miss work. We have know what it is like to not know what we will be doing in a month or two. We have know the feeling of not knowing if we will be able to get jobs so we have enough money to pay the bills. We know the feeling of being completely alone in a foreign country that we are supposed to make our home for the next year.

But with all these situations we have made the best of them. We were fed before we could go hungry, and shown the light at the end of the dark tunnel hiding our future. We were provided with wonderful job even in the tough economy when everyone else was struggling. We were given friends to keeps us from being alone.

Heavenly Father has really blessed our lives in so many ways. We can not even begin to count the many blessing we have had in our marriage. We have been bless with a love so strong and unbreakable.

I am looking forward to the next chapter in our lives. I know there will be so many adventures to come. I know we will face so many difficult challenges, but know we can handle anything that gets thrown at us. We are a strong family. Heavenly Father loves us so much and tells us that everyday.

Michael you are my best friend. You have been the light that has guided me in the dark tunnel and lead me safely to the light. You have been my strength when I was at my weakest. You have always had so much faith in me and my dreams and hopes. You have helped me to believe in myself and reach some of my goal and start working on my other goals.

I love you so much! You really were a gift from Heavenly Father. He knew I needed you and blessed me to be the luckiest girl alive. To be able to call you my husband, eternal companion, my life. Thank you so much for this last 4 years! YOU ROCK!

Our trip to Mexico.. just the start!

We took Aaron to the pool on Tuesday. He is soooooo good when it comes to the water! And he looks so cute in his swim wear!

I don't know how any little 2 month old could get any cuter! Is it really possible?

Total Excitement!

Every morning Aaron and I have the same routine. 3 am feeding then back to bed, the 6am feeding and in bed with mommy the rest of the morning so I can go back to bed til 9am (when he normally wakes up next). After about 9 I wake up and what all the tv shows from the previous day on my lab top, play on the internet, 12pm feeding, then another nap for Aaron, I look up ALL KINDS of wedding stuff for both the weddings I am doing, then about 1:30-2:00pm I finally get my lazy butt out of bed and start packing and cleaning the house. 4:30pm i start dinner so it is ready for when Michael gets home (granted this last part has only happened a couple of time lol). But today was WAY different. 9:30am came and I received a call from one of my closest friends here in the bay area. She told me that she had gone to Fresno for a job interview and that it was killing her not to tell me until she found out if she got the job or not. Well, she call to tell me that SHE GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!! So, that means she is moving to Fresno with us late June to start working July 1st. I about jumped out of bed when she told me. I was so excited to have that news! We get to stay together. We had been saying how sad it was that we were leaving them and the Tans behind. Now they are going with us and we just have to get the Tans to come. (won't happen, his job is seriously TOO good to leave)

This is where my routine changed. After the call I got us out of bed ASAP and started to majorly pack. That was my major motivation to get the packing done. It made it more exciting to be going home finally! Then I packed the rest of the day with a few breaks in between. When Michael got home, however, I was totally exhausted of packing, so I took him and Aaron to the Hillsdale mall and Ikea for a date night about 45 mins from home. It is a great drive. I love it! So, all and all, it was a GREAT day!

Thank Fresno Community Hospital for hiring my freshly Graduated best friend so I can keep her and her husband with us in Fresno and not the bay area! No I just need Lucas Films to let Henri work from home so they can move down too! Keeping my fingers crossed!
