Couldn't resist after I saw this. Besides, I just got my first flat screen Computer monitor
and it's SO COOL to see these bright colors on a nice big monitor! (well, big to me!)
And....while I "have you on here" Please say a pray for my sister from Texas and myself
as we both head to Nebraska in the next couple days to help my other sister to BE WITH our mother. Mother is in the hospital and tho she is always SO STRONG and HATES to be sick, I'm fearful that her 90 year old body just won't cooperate with her strong mind this time.
Bitter sweet week-end. My girls are headed home. Joycelyn is coming home for a bridal shower tomorrow, then has to head home early Monday morning to get back to CEI, to work. Tia will be here till after THE Wedding.
This will be our "last" week-end with just us four before we become FIVE!
Next week-end will be strange as well. We'll all be together for about 24 hours to have some fun-filled UNwrapping of presents and probably some LIVER POOL game playing, then "the couple" has to head back to be at work on Monday! Oh, the joys of adulthood and working, ya know?
Three weeks from today life will change again. Joycelyn will be married, and Kittia will be on her way back to Florida.

HLA has been "stationed" mostly in Memphis, with most employees working in their homes.

home school families. The HLA office is now located 2.3 miles from our house and now
has a more professional office set up, with better equipped employees working in the
We found out about their move and went for interviews....Bob is working FULLTIME and I have been hired parttime. Bob's job is in the RECORDS OFFICE working on a computer!!! He has also been given the job title of "tasks" which could of course be a
variety of things, from putting offices desks, chairs together, to fixing old file cabinets, etc. The jobs will be endless because of his talents and williness to do whatever they ask him of course. But mostly it is working with a computer!
The HLA Staff is wonderful...all home schoolers (or past home schoolers) with a superb,
compassionate, caring, FLEXIBLE office! WE LOVE IT!!
I could go on an on how happy we are right now. Our desks are side by side, we often go to work together and it is SO MUCH FUN!!!
I am continuing with 2 cleaning jobs, with Bob's help when he can and there are some weeks have been working 50+ hours to get our work done.
I am also tutoring 4 hours a week (my true passion of teaching), which adds to our busy-ness.
