Yes, we are still alive!!!

So I called my parents last week and my dad goes, "We were just talking about you...You haven't blogged since you started working!"
I have had a major struggle getting used to this whole working thing! Especially since I don't get off until 5:00 (my last job I got off at 3:00). To top off getting used to a work schedule it has been a super crazy month!! It started off with Ali's graduation, a surprise party for my mom, Ali's graduation party, the 4th of July, and the craziness just ended with Youth Conference. In a perfect world I would have devoted an entire entry to each event and I hate that I never got around to it, but such is life! is an update on our life and what has been happening:

I'll start with my job. I LOVE IT! I love that I am able to finally have a job that uses my degree and is something that I truly enjoy doing. The week after I started they brought in another girl, so we split the duties of the legal department so that it is not overwhelming. I really enjoy my coworker and we get along really well. We definitely have our work cut out for us! The legal department at Renton Collections has had almost a constant turnover for the last 7 years, and the most recent employee left it a mess! Tons of documents were returned by the court or our attorney because there were errors and then she never fixed them! Since I haven't really gotten around to it, here is a basic rundown of my job: when the collectors are not able to get payments from the debt holders they turn the accounts over to us and I prepare the documents to start the lawuit and then later I will prepare the documents that will give us judgment against the debtor (which means that the court says we have the right to take a set amount of money from the debtor). Once we obtain judgment my coworker then prepares the paperwork that we need in order to garnish their bank account or their wage. My day is always full and almost always flies by! I love it!!
It is so nice to have a double income again! We are SO excited to be able to save money (and hopefully buy a house in the next year) and be able to afford to do some fun things again!

Well, I think that is enough for tonight....more to come tomorrow!

  1. Finally, I have been wondering what has happen to you. I believe that you need to call me back. I have now called you twice. Plus I wish you were off at 4 because that is when I usually called you before. Oh, well I am glad that you are working again too. Love ya!
