Yes, this is an update....

I AM ALIVE... :)

This is going to be very random...!!! (surprise there, huh?!?:)

Everything is going well. I am settled into my new job and loving it.

Exciting events coming up...

Miriam is here for a visit!!!
Oct. 25th -- Her wedding!!!
Football Season -- The doctors who I work for are HUGE buckeye fans and every friday we get to wear jerseys and jeans. Which is way fun!!! O.H.I.O.!!
A possible trip to BG to visit certain people :)


Also, I have a very good friend and we'll call him "Sam." He is struggling with some things in his life right now that he knows he needs to change. I would like to ask everyone if they could remember him in your prayers. He's got a heart of gold, he's just having a hard time giving up some of his past friends.

Well, I guess that's it. I'm going to try and be better about getting on here more but I'm making no promises... but i'll see you all in another 3 months... if not before! :)

Now, you tell me something interesting... :)

Have a WONDERFUL day!!!

    Glad Tinker is doing so well. Chloe is not mad in the least surprisingly.

    Has she eaten any of your blankets yet?? She has a bad habit of sucking on "material" when she sleeps and making a hole in it! Beware. :)

    Hey Abby
    by simonc23236 at 05/16/08 8:06PM

Life... :)

Always an adventure...!!! I haven't updated in forever AND a day!!! :)

Everything is going pretty well for me. I'm back in school. Still don't like it, but for school it's ok. I've met a lot of new people. By far, the social aspect is the best part of school! ;)

I'm still working at Boston Market (unfortunately) but I'm looking for a new job. I had an interview about a week ago for a doctors office. I am praying so hard that I get this job. I think I would be so good at it!!! And a huge plus is she works there. :) They said they would let me know if I had a second interview between 1-2 weeks. So, any prayers would be greatly appreciated!!! :)

The sweetest thing happened in my bible class. I teach the 3-5 year olds. Last week I asked them if they would pray that if it's God's will that I get this job. I didn't say anything last night. And the little girl who said the prayer remembered!!! :) It just made my day! I love those kids so much!

They are coming to visit and possibly him in a couple of weeks! I'm excited! I've already started planning the weekend! :) CAN'T WAIT!!!

Well, I guess that's all for now!!! :)

Have an awesome rest of the week!!!

    Please tell Kay that her cinnamon drops were a huge success. (They were in the care package she sent me.) She wrote on the bag that they were great for pancakes, and they were. Both girls and Dad like them. I haven't eaten any yet. Wish you'd been here for a taste.
