Well yesterday I turned.....38! Closer and closer to 40,lol! I actually had it off from work and so did Ben which is amazing. We went to Opelika and did some Christmas shopping and then he took me to the Olive Garden for dinner,mmmm! I got home and Caitlin had made me a german chocolate cake for dessert :) Thanks to my best friend in W VA for the card :)

I have been down the past couple of weeks....I guess it's the upcoming holidays and as always missing Matthew. I broke down in church last weekend. The sermon was alittle to close to home for me but I do have to say that the church we are going to is wonderful and a lot of the ladies knew it would be hard for me and surrounded me with love and prayer after.

I do hope that you all are doing good...I think of you all often. It's hard when we don't have internet and I can't connect like I want but that is going to change soon. We are catching up on bills and got Ben's little truck paid off :) We were behind when we both weren't working but thankfully we are and getting some extra hours. There is a lot of plants in our area that are shutting down and many people are out of jobs right now. It's so very hard! I'm just thankful that Ben and I are in the industry were they need people.

You all take care and stay warm! Sending you all hugs :)

Happy belated Thanksgiving!

I hope that you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Ben and I were both off and had his brother and family over. We all have a lot to be truely thankful for even through this rough ecomony. This time of year, the holidays, are always tough though.

I was off this past week but went in for a couple of days. They are really short staffed but the extra hours do help.

We are suppose to get snow flurries on Monday!! Yes I am excited. I haven't seen snow in about 6 years and actually miss it :)

Tomorrow will be a tough day for Ben. It will be 2 years ago that he lost his father. If you all could remember him in prayer, thanks!

I miss all of you and think of you all often. Hugs!

Happy November

Time sure does fly it is November already! I have been working at the hospital for a month now and love it. It sure does keep me busy but its going good. I do apologize for not being on here between work, husband and kids my days are over before I know it and time to start all over again.

Caitlin brought home her senior invitations for us to pick and pay for. Still hard to believe she will be graduating!

I hope that you all had a great Halloween. We went to the church and did trunk or treating and had a good time. I didn't stay too long, trying to get over a cold and it sure does get chilly here!

Still don't have internet service at the house but its coming soon I hope. Since Ben and I are both working full time now things are getting alittle bit better.

You all take care and have a great weekend :)

I'm not too sure I know what I'm doing on here yet but I'll get it! It will be easier to make adjustments when I get online service at the house.

Work is going good. I will start training on days in 2 weeks. Right now it's still 3-11. But I am learning a lot and they seem to think I'm catching on really fast. It's their whole computer system but once you get on it its not too bad.

I'm really going to enjoy the fall colors down here. It seems like when we have moved in the past it's always been to states that really don't have too much of Fall but here it will be different and I'm looking forward to it.

Ben starts with the Sheriffs department on Tuesday. He will be a dispatcher working nights. Its 2 on and 2 off then 3 on and 3 off. Kids are doing good. They had Fall break this past week and have Monday off as well for Columbus day.

Take care and I have visited blogs around here and you all look really good :)
