God gave me you for the ups and downs. God gave me you for the days of doubt. And for when I think I've lost my way, there are no words here left to say, it's true, God gave me you.

Awesomely Horrible

So, I hope this post turns out okay because I'm posting via blogger app for iPhone.

I have so much to share and we don't have Internet at the house (we seriously live WAY out in the boonies) and work has been absolutely crazy and exhausting so cell blogging it is...

First... Boo got a HUGE surprise last night! After a year of searching he's HIRED! Wooo hoooooooo! His cousin Tony is a locksmith and was able to get Brandt a job where he works. We're still hoping he gets the longterm job were soooooo close to getting, but this is a wonderful opportunity for him to gain new experiences, knowledge, and people skills! Bless his heart, he's always done "men jobs" and if you stuck him in a retail position, he would be clueless! He's a sweetheart and has trouble telling people "no", so I'm happy he will learn how to communicate with other in a business atmosphere! Not to mention, it's always nice knowing someone who can help you if you lock yourself out! ;)

On the other hand... my job has not only put a HUGE boulder on my shoulders, but has also really worn out my heart lately! A little background: I've been with the same firm for over 5 years now and it's a tiny office so were all very close and it really feels or FELT like family there! I used to look forward everyday to go to work. Then came along... Jane (name changed to protect privacy and so noone gets offended for being nosey). Jane has ripped our office apart! We recently lost our receptionist because the sweet woman's social life was just too much for her so she just needed a break to go away and get help. This left me and two other girls to do our normal 40 hours/week work PLUS divide the receptionists job between us! We have been literally working our ASSES off!!! I never thought I'd say this, but I would so trade places with a stay-at-home wife/mother right now!!! So... Jane see how hard we work and because shes in a privileged position ("50-something-wanna-be-20", remember her?!?) she doesn't even see the decency of just being a kind individual to help us. The bottom line, my girlfriends and I go to work everyday now walking on pins and needles because if anything we say is even remotely insinuating Jane whatsoever, we get scolded! This is an EVERYDAY occurrence! I don't want this to turn into a gossip story so I'll stop there. It's been on my mind a LOT and I'm emotional about it because, like I said, it's like family! I've been praying tons lately about the situation and hopefully Jane and her poor attitude will eventually get better.

I've missed reading your blogs everyday! I can't wait until work calms down or AT&T would recognize that people live in the country and offer some uverse! Ha! Next week I have my sweet baby sis coming for spring break! I just don't know what to so with myself! I'll have spent a weeks worth with both my sisters in a month's time!!! I've learned recently there's noone who can take place of your family (close friends included too) and theres noone who will be there for you like they will so why put anyone else (aside from The Big Man) in front of them????

Happy Tuesday Pretties!!!


  1. Aww congrats to you and your honey on his being hired! That's exciting! And I'm sorry that your job is stressing you out, everyone always says "dont bring your work home with you" but, as a nurse, I know first hand how hard that is! You spend more time there than anywhere else and it weighs on your heart! Praying for a resolution for you girl! Have a GREAT week!!

  2. YAY!! So happy for Brandt!!! I'm doing the happy dance for y'all


Leave me some lovin'...
