My New Home!!

My New Apartment!!
It's a small complex,about 30 units.
But a really nice large 1 bedroom.

It's got a beautiful little neighborhood.

Hopefully soon I can get out and enjoy it.

There's nothing like sleeping in your own bed!!

Well it's offical I am now in my apartment. I know I have no pics,
but when you leave at dark, and get home at dark, it kind of defeats
the purpose.

I loved sleeping in my own bed. I mean the things we take for
granted some times. The first night in my apartment, I had to go out
to Wal-Mart and buy a shower curtain, because I didn't have one.

I have purchased my first piece of furniture, a very comfy recliner.
It will be delivered next week. I will actually be able to sit
on something, not my bed, boxes, or the floor.

Once I get that in then I can see what other furniture I can fit in
there. I also bought a T.V. but it is still in the box, because I
just haven't had time to set it up yet.

Still traveling back and forth between the stores constatly, but I
will be able to come home and visit for a few days soon. I will be
home Nov 9 for the weekend. Hope to see all of you there!

Happy 3rd Birthday Bella!!

My miracle girl is three tomorrow. She is getting so
big and doing so good. She is pulling up things, and
talks all the time. She say's Praise the Lord and
it is so cute!

I miss her so much!! It has been a year since the kidney transplant,
and she is doing so well. If anyone ever doubts all they have to
do is look at her, and they will see miracles really happen!

A Place to call Home!!

Well it only took a month, but it's official. I have an address. I am so excited, because it means I can finally sleep in my own bed. I still have to move in, I pick up the keys tomorrow.

So I finally get out of a hotel, for a couple of nights at least.
Still doing lots of traveling and that is wearing me out.

I don't know if I will make it home or not. I am supposed to be home
towards the end of the month, the arrangements are made, but we are
without staff in one of our stores, and it is very possible that we
might not make it.

I took my 5 HOUR Management Assessment. Can you believe that?
It was really intense, and now I have to wait for over a week for results.
I have no idea how I did. But I will be sure to let everyone know when I do.

Living out of a hotel...

Hello everyone. I have been extremely busy since I got here to Kansas.
I haven't really had a chance to see anything. I have been working
non-stop, and I haven't even had a chance to get out and do apartment

I am living out of a hotel. It's not bad, but it will be nice when I have
my own place. A lot of things have happened since we got here, and I
could be making some changes pretty quickly.

There may be a open position for a Sales Manager in one of other
stores very soon. So it looks like I may be taking my assessment pretty
soon. It's 5 hrs and all about having tasks to do in a timely matter,
and seeing your coaching ability when it comes to associates. It would
be a good pay increase, but a whole lot more responsibility.

But I am just praying that the Lord will open the doors if that is what
He wants to happen.

Kansas Here I Come!!

I know it has been forever since I have posted, but I have been
very busy with many different things.
The first of which, is I am moving to Emporia, Kansas this Friday.
I know everyone is thinking why Kansas? Well the truth is I am
transferring for work, with my supervisor Lyneatte. We bought
out another company there and have some really great opportunities.

Everything is still up in the air. I have to get a place when I get there,
we have about a 3 or 4 day road trip to get there. Pretty amazing huh!
For all of you who know me....you are probably thinking "this is not you,
who are you?" The truth is I have changed a lot and feel like I am in the
best place I have ever been in my life. I trust the Lord completely and
believe with all my heart that He opened the door for this and that
He is going to bless me.

I know I have been on the abandoned blog list for months, but I promise
that I will do my best to keep you as up to date as possible. I might be
without internet for awhile,but please e-mail me! I will need laughter,
and encouragement to get through these first few weeks especially. I am
leaving my home of all my life, my church family of 15 years, my work
family of 6 years, and my family and friends,who even know as I think
about it I start to cry. I know I can do it, but I will need some
extra strength. I love you all and will miss you greatly!

Family Time

Well this year has come and gone, but my favorite
time of the year is the Holiday's. I love spending time
with my family. As you can see from some of these
pictures, we had a great time. The kids were spoiled
as usual. Bella had a great time! John was very entertaining.

It certainly was not the same without my sister Laura.
We missed you girl, but I hope you had a good time,
and you enjoy these pictures.

Wishing you all a great New Year's. I can't believe we
are going into 2006, may it be a wonderful year for all
of you. I know I am looking forward to seeing where
the Lord takes me this year!

Pucker Up!

That is a
santa hat!
