Tagged again!
My friend Heather tagged me with this so I am playing along! :) Sorry it's taken me so long to do girl!

I must list 5 weird things about myself or my pet. I am going to list five weird things about my cats!

  • Chester drinks out of the toilet bowl. No matter how much fresh water you give him, he still does it.
  • Tommy enjoys Diet Coke. He will lap it out of your cup.
  • Chester eats people food and begs like a dog would when you sit down to eat.
  • Tommy likes to have his butt scratched.
  • Both cats will get into the tub after you have taken a shower and lick the water off the faucet and shower curtain.

Hump Day!
Well, it is Wednesday! And I have posted two days in a row now! I can just hear the applause.

So, not much going on here. Just work and that's it. (sigh) I lead such a boring life!

My friend Kristy that also works with me put in her two weeks notice today. She is going to another company that will pay her what she is worth. While I am excited for her, I am going to miss her terribly. I have asked you all to pray for her a few times in the past. She was struggling with some financial issues and this door opened up for her. I hope it was God answering her/your prayers! She does read me sometimes so if you are reading this Kristy - I love you and Good luck!

I may be getting a lap top. Good news! I'm excited about the possiblity of being able to have a computer at home that works so I can surf the internet and maybe even blog some more. My first plan of action if I do get this lap top is to purchase a digitial camera and start posting pictures! How fun right? :) Is it wrong to pray I get this lap top?

Okay, I need to run. Got to get some work done today.

Do me a favor? Tell your friends I am here? I miss all the comments. (I know, I know, I am selfish.....I just miss everyone!)

Okay, Okay, I am going to work now....

Have a blessed day!

Hello? Hello? Is there anybody in there?
Ok, so I know I have not written in a very long while. I hope people still will come in every once in awhile to see if I have written. Now that things are settled I hope to be writing/visiting everyday or at least every other.

I'll start with the things that have happened:

  • I got a new job. Same company/different poition. I asked God to help me get out of my current situation and he did. This job opened right up for me. I am so much happier!
  • I have lost 6 pounds. WOOHOO!
  • Dad has been very, very sick. Treatment is finally over. (For now) but for a few weeks or so I was not sure he was going to make it. I am still not sure he will but things are looking up. Thank you to all of those people who are still praying and thinking about us.
  • I was in the hospital a few days. My blood sugar bottomed out on me and I could not get it back up. I am not considered hyposglymeic and have to be on a special diet which I am NOT sticking to at all. (hangs head in shame) I know, I will try to be better.
  • Mom had surgery on her bladder but is fine. She was off a few days but is doing much better and back at work.

That's it for now.

So, how is everyone? I missed you and you and you…yes, you in the green….

Leave me comments people! I want to know how everyone is!
