I just got a letter today from the La Verne Police Department. It was notifying us that a HIGH RISK SEX PREDATOR has moved into the house behind us, across the alley, one house over. He has served sentences for three felony sex crimes, two for children under 14, and was released from parole last month. This is making me sick to my stomach. I have seen this man before, and his car has driven by my house. He lives within 100 feet of us, and Rosie's bedroom window faces the alley he drives on. I'll definitely be keeping the blinds closed. Now, to get William to close that blasted gate....

Temp Job

Well, after a terribly un-fruitful job search, six weeks and counting, it looks like I'm going to take a temp position at Kaiser in Corona. The pay is almost as bad as LDS Hospital, ($3 less an hour than COH) and it's a thirty mile drive each way....but it's some money.

I heard back on two positions that I was really interested in that hired other people, so I don't really have any better prospects at this time.

It's been a big blow to my self-esteem. I've never tried so hard and had so little results. Even when I tried to leave PHB. I find it kinda funny that I'm taking a job doing medical billing and collections, when that is the former job I disliked the most.

Taylor just picked up an app at Chili's in La Verne. If he's working a few nights a week, we shouldn't go under too far financially.

Please keep us in your prayers.

Adoption Party

We're heading to Utah again next week. We have our court date for Taylor's adoption of Rosie to be finalized. We are so happy this is finally happening, and want to invite you to celebrate with us!

We are having an open house at my parents' house in Murray on Friday, August 11 from 6:30-10:00. If you are able to come, message me for the address (if you don't already know where they live)

We already know this will be a quick trip, so please don't feel offended if we can't visit everyone. If you come, you'll probably run into some familiar faces.

Resign or get fired

I had a shock at work yesterday. I got a call from the HR manager, who wanted to see how my job search was going. He said that even though my resignation was effective Aug 4, he said my managers were complaining about me. He told me to be prepared to leave this week, probably Thursday.

Then I come back to my desk, and my supervisor asks me to come into her office. She asked me to clean up my desk then and there.

So I'm done with City of Despair. Take this job and shove it!

I have 2, possibly 3 interviews today, so I'm not too worried about finding something else. And we might take a quick trip up to Utah this weekend.

Why I LOVE California

Current mood: happy

I just have to say, after a month as a California resident, I really don't see myself living in Utah again. Unless, of course, Taylor or I get a great job there. Here's a breakdown of some things I've done this month.

Went to 2 Nathan McEuen Concerts (Hollywood and Ventura)

Played with the fam at the beach in Ventura

Ate amazing clam chowder at Eric Erickson's on the Pier (Ventura)

Went swimming 15+ times

Went to a ward party

Got my first paycheck (twice as much as LDS Hospital)

Registered my car in Cali, but failed the DL exam (apparently, the speed limit laws are different here)

Partied at the Bluhms, including the 24 seasion finale

Went on the Silver Bullet rollercoaster at Knott's Berry Farm seven times in a row (till I was green in the face)

Purchased tickets for Les Miserables and Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at the Pantages Theater (for half price!)

Got tickets for Keane (June 21st)

Ate at El Pollo Loco, El Torito, Jack in the Box, Big Sky Sushi, Legends Diner, and Johnny Rockets

Went shopping WAY too many times, and finally found a comforter set for my bedroom

Got a 24 Hour Fitness Membership, and I actually go

Lost 5 pounds (despite all the food)

Learned how to do transcription for Cytogenetics Reports

Ate a cherry crueller doughnut from Tastees Donuts (the BEST on earth!)

Stopped taking prozac


(but I miss everyone in Utah)

Living in and lovin' Cali!

So, if you didn't figure it out...I kinda gave up on livejournal and picked up Myspace instead. Considering I only knew about 5 people on LJ, and 50 on Myspace...I changed my mind. I have some pics and post bulletins occasionally, so that's a better way to keep tabs on me.

Also, I've been in CA for two weeks. I'm living in La Verne, and I'm working at City of Hope Cancer Center in Cytogenetics. Taylor will be doing an accelerated flight program, and should be flight instructing (and making money) this fall. Words can't describe how happy this makes me. :)

Rosie's doing great, just graduated from preschool and can't wait to live in "CANNIFORNIA." We want to finally get her into modeling and commercials, so we are going to look at agencies this summer. Also, Steve gave consent for Taylor to adopt Rosie, so she should be Rosalind Bullock by mid-July.

So that what's up. Check me out on myspace.
