New Job!

Hello everyone! I know, it seems like I dropped off the face of the blogging world, but it isn't true. I just haven't been all that inspired to blog about anything in particular. Well, that's not true, either. I just haven't been inspired to get off my lazy duff and post anything.

But today is different. I've gotten off my proverbial lazy derriere and done a post finally. Woo-hoo for me!

The big news today is that I got a job. I will be a checker at a local Safeway, working late hours, and not spending much time with my hubby. But at least I'll be home for the kids! I will only work about 4 days a week, but it gets me out of the house, and brings in some much-needed money. Ya'll know how that is, I'm sure.

Anywho, wish me luck, 'cuz I hope I don't kill myself......

Time of Mourning

Yesterday afternoon Doane's oldest sister was traveling home from vacation with her family, and was in a serious car accident. They were over an hour away from a city, so by the time the rescue workers got to them, her husband had died. Her three boys were taken to the hospital, then one of the boys was life-flighted somewhere else. My sister-in-law and her daughter are okay.
When I got the news, I was just in shock! You never know when you will lose someone you love. I have a great appreciation for this, as I was faced with a daily thought of "what will happen to Doane?" when he was deployed.
As a family (extended and immediate), we're all shell-shocked over this. He was a really good man, a great husband, and an awesome father. I wish there was a way we could take away, or at least ease, her pain. Please pray for us, and especially my sister-in-law and her family. And remember to hug and kiss your loved ones every day. I am so grateful for the promise of eternal families!
