Just Checking In!

It's my second week of working full time and I'm totally exhausted. I know it sounds like I'm being a baby but it's gonna take me a while to get adjusted to having to be somewhere every morning at 7:30.
This weekend I got a chance to finish the sweater I knit for Lillie. I got a lot of satisfaction from making this with my own two hands. It's not perfect, but it was made with love and Lillie thinks it's the most beautiful sweater she's ever seen! She's so sweet!

Crazy Week

Last week was a crazy week, lots of new stuff going on in my life. I was blessed with a full time job for the next 4 or 5 weeks. The secretary at Oakland High School is going to have surgery tomorrow and she asked if I wanted to fill in for her while she's out. When I said yes I really didn't have any idea what I was getting myself into...it can be quite chaotic in a high school office. But I will do everything I can to do a great job and endure the chaos until she gets back. Pray for me!! I haven't worked full time since before Amie was born 22 years ago, so I'm kind of scared about having to get up and go somewhere every single day.
Not only did that job come to me, but I've been offered another job after that that just fell in my lap. God knows my unexplainable fear of interviews and I think He has given me these jobs in spite of myself. I do have to say I'm sorry to Jill - my Wednesday scrappin' buddy. But my husband thinks it's time for me to act like a grown up and have a grown up job! LOL And with Christian going to college in the fall I understand where he's coming from. So here I go...into the grown up world of working full time...I hope I survive!
We had quite a scare last night when Adam called and said he had been in an accident while riding a friend's motorcycle. Turns out he was doing a wheelie while going 45 miles per hour driving around a curve on an old country road. Of course he lost control and ended up mashed into a chain link fence. There must have been angels softening the blows because was able to get up and walk (well, more like limp) away with very minor injuries...just scrapes and bruises. He even refused care when the ambulance arrived. Praise God is all I can say.
Well, I guess that's about it. Oh, wait, I'm supposed to be in The Tennessean on Wednesday along with my friend Jill. If you get that newspaper look in the Food section!
I hope you guys have a great week. I'll check in on Friday and let you know how my first week went.

A New Year

I've got new yarn...to make a beautiful sweater for Lillie.

I've got new scrapbook supplies...to do whatever it is I do with scrapbook supplies.


We have 2 new members of our family.

Meet Earl.

Christian impulsivly decided to buy a guinea pig (Earl). It's the only typical household pet we haven't had in our house. We've had the usual cat and dogs, then we've fish, many many hamsters, crabs, a rabbit, a hedgehog, and a ferret. But never a guinea pig. So before she goes off to college she wanted to experience life with a guinea pig.

And Randy.

Of coarse when Lillie came over a saw Earl she fell in love with him and became very upset that she didn't have one too. Good ole Uncle Adam witnessed her "drama" and immediately left and came home with another guinea pig (Randy). So now Earl and Randy reside happily in Christian's room.

That's how my New Year has started off.

I hope the new year ahead is a blessed and prosperous one for you and your household.

New Year's Eve

Well this is how we spent our New Years Eve...playing Dance Revolution with our kids. And ya know, it was a lot a fun. Even Adam danced. Then we played several rounds of Mad Gab before Joey and I went to bed...at 10:30!(even Lillie stayed up later than we did)
