It's nice to find work so close to home.

This is very small and silly and dumb... but....
my propane tank is full!!!!
It's been a bad year, we couldn't afford to fill it and had to borrow from my parents, but, things are looking up, AND I CAN COOK AGAIN!!!
LOL, I've been grilling, using the steamer and microwave and electric skillet as much as possible, for fear of running out and not being able to dry laundry....
Now I have to work 4 days and can't celebrate the heck outta my kitchen...
bummer.
But look out on tuesday.... I may end up cooking enough for the whole block!

I celebrate the fact that everyone I knew in Houston made it thru Ike...........and nearly everyone's power is on though I miss one of my best friend's daily email jokes......she still must be without

Good to hear Suzi!

My biggest celebration is that my oldest son, Justin (14 yrs.old), is heading to an ACTS retreat with the youth church group. I had been waiting for months for an opportunity to come along for him and experience what I did back in February. Although he's wonderful, I know he'll get a lot from this powerful experience. Once he's closer to God he will be ready for anything. I'm blessed with him and all of my family. Just wanted to share.
