Stats Suck Sunday

My friend, Brody, who got me started with blogging some 6 months ago, says bullet points are the rule for Sunday's. Not many peeps read blogs on Sunday, so make it short & sweet.
  • Our daughter is still the only one gainfully employed in the family.
  • Have enjoyed several afternoons in the backyard this week. Reading, napping, contemplating.
  • Excited that Jeremy Camp will be live on this afternoon at 2:30 CDT.
  • My 23rd anniversary is 2 weeks from today. A card may be his gift....
  • The Penguins really, really stunk last night. The RedWings just totally dominated. Game 6 back in Pittsburgh on Tuesday night.
  • I'm not doing well on my blog posts lately. Being unemployed, I certainly have plenty of time!
  • Oldest step-daughter started summer school Monday. Taking 3 classes. She was laid off in April. Unexpected. So, at 41, she's going to finish her B.S. in Business Admin. Great effort. It's eating her lunch this 1st week!
  • Oldest granddaughter turned 15 the other day! I look back & amazed at how time flies! Especially when they live in Cleveland. The other 4 are ages 2 to 13. With #6 due in August! (same Mom & Dad). The other step-daughter & her hubby have 2 granddogs!
  • "cashing" in my Mother's day gift on Tuesday. A mini spa day. Start at 12:15 and ending around 4:30. Facial, eyezone treatment, massage, European manicure & pedicure. Lunch. I'm excited. I've never had a pedicure or a facial. Woo Hoo.
Keep us in your prayers for job opportunities. We have been vigilant in our search. Moving is a possibility. The worst thing about that is 20 years of "stuff" in this house......

Move here! You are going to have so much fun at the spa. You totally deserve it! I can't wait to hear all about it. I've been neglecting my blog lately. I'm sick of it. I want a whole new look. Maybe that will get me going to stay updated.

You will love the spa it is a great way to relax, enjoy it. I continue to keep you in my prayers. I still have not started a blog and I know I would neglect it. I barely have time to keep up with Twitter and Facebook.

Hi there! How exciting that you have a blog - we can stay caught up with the girls. I am so sorry about your husband's job (and yours). Both of our older sons lost their jobs in the past year. Michael found a job he absolutely loves as a result, and Matt is still looking.

The pattern and fabric you saw on my blog is for the hostess gift aprons. The bridesmaid dresses are a green silk, and I will try to post a picture of that pattern for you to see. I think they are going to be so pretty on the girls.

Missy told me about Amanda's new job - how exciting! I know that you are so proud of that sweet girl :)

I am praying for you and your husband to have a definite answer soon about jobs and where you will live. Uncertainty isn't much fun!

Thanks again for posting on our blog!!!
