I put in for a job today that I think I have decent shot at getting. It's with an agency I work with and am on good terms with their staff. It would allow me to do quite a bit of public speaking and writing and both of those are something I very much enjoy. I hope, if it's God's will, it works out!

Hope you all have a great Tuesday. I missed not being around here yesterday!!!
Good luck with the job! I will keep you in my thoughts & prayers.

Leaving work at 3:30 today to go to my son's high school baseball game. We only have 7 games left then the state tournament, if we qualify. We have have quite a few snow days to make up so school is now extended to May 30. I hate to see this school year end since he will be a senior next year.

Saturday we are visiting Gardner Webb University for "junior day". It is a 1/2 day of scheduled meetings and tours for high school juniors who are looking to attend the college. Ethan thinks that is where he wants to go and major in Journalism. It is a Christian university so we are happy about that but I'm sure I will have a lump in my throat all day just thinking about him leaving.

Have a blessed day everyone.
Thinking of you & Ethan!!

Enjoy your cool weather!

Good Morning Christmas Peeps!

I have been busy with chores all day. My granddaughter was eager to help so I am giving her small task to tackle. We got the music going and having fun while we are at it.

Now I need to finish this up and do SOMEONE'S dishes since they threatened to ground me!

Have a blessed day everyone!
