House Hunting

We have been looking for homes in the town where my husband will be working.  It has been so much! Today we fell in love with a home!  We still have more to look at though and I cannot wait to see more. 
When you look at a home what is on your "must have" list?

I am Pleased To Announce

WE HAVE A JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Starting in January my husband will be an employee of the US Post Office.  We are beyond thrilled! 2 1/2 years of uncertainty, 1 year of unemployment and finally, we can make plans and settle in.  We went forward in church today to share our praise!  We are on cloud 9 and looking forward to Christmas and 2012.  Thanks to all of our family and friends who have cried with us, prayed with us and been there for us.  We love you all!

Round 3

Sigh.  This morning our Professor woke up wheezing and coughing.  So I took him straight to the doctor.  Luckily, it was mommy being nervous, but not so luckily he has a sinus infection and fluid in his ears.  So Round 3 of antibiotics here we go!

Smitten: A Book Review

I was able to read and review the book “Smitten” recently.  This is a Christian romance novel.  Actually it is four novels in one.  The authors are Colleen Coble, Kristin Billerbeck, Diann Hunt and Denise Hunter.  The central theme is about a small town whose main employer shuts down.  As the town, Smitten, faces the fear of the town shutting down, four ladies come up with an idea.  They believe they can save the town of Smitten by turning into a romantic town for tourists.  Each novel focuses on one of these four women; Julia, Natalie, Reese and Shelby.  This was a good, light, easy read.  Probably my favorite novel was the one focusing on Natalie.  All of them were good.  It certainly was not the best book I have ever read, but if light reading is on your list then this book is for you!

A Different Day

Yesterday I had a totally new experience.  I was the supervisor for an exam.  It was an all day event but a small one.  The site I supervised only had 13 candidates testing.  Some sites had more than 100!  I really lucked out.  It was an interesting day.  I was glad to do it though and look forward to doing it again at some point in time.  Now that I have worked as a supervisor for this company once, I will be eligible to supervise again.  So here's hoping! Have you ever supervised or proctored an exam?

Christmas Music

I LOVE Christmas music! I listen to it all day on the TV radio.  I have it on in the van.  I love singing it at church.  My husband pretty much hates all Christmas music.  LOL! So we have a deal, each year we put up our tree and decor the day after Thanksgiving.  Starting that very day we can play all the Christmas music we long as we wait til the day after Thanksgiving.  It is a pretty fair deal I think.  When do you start listening and decorating?
