Good morning everyone! Well today I have good news and bad news. If you were my 11 year old son you would go with bad news first. I personally like it the other way around. So I will go with good news first: I got a job!!! I received the offer late yesterday afternoon! I am sooo happy. Only one day of "unemployment" and I nailed it. I didn't even sign up for unemployment, so that was good!!

Bad news: I am not sure I will be able to blog during the week for a little bit. I will have to get the kiddos off to school and head right into work. I will def try to get some things up over the weekends. As many of you know, I have worked from home for many a year! So this should be interesting. Thank you all for keeping everything crossed (you can now uncross) and ALL your prayers, they did work!!!

Ok, on to my page, lol!! I did this page with no picture, as you can see. On our recent trip to Florida we were upgraded to 1St class on the way home!! Well you would have thought you gave us a million dollars. I sat next to our 16 year old and we had so much fun. We couldn't even stand ourselves!! There is a lot of journaling (that never happens) on this page, because as I say to Kel and Dawn all the time "it's all about the story". ALL the embellishments are from DCWV Travel Stack, Chipboard Box!! So many to choose from! The paper is travel paper and I just can't remember where I got it.

  2. Fantastic News. Dont worry about blogging its after all a relaxation drop in when you can
