The "goings on" in my life......

*I had a job interview last week - it was a strange one that is for sure! Whew!

*Spring Break was last week - Steve and I had the week to ourselves. We ate out, went mall walking, and enjoyed hanging out together. It was nice. (The kids visited their dad in Nashville)

*I had my eyes checked last week. I now wear glasses...bifocals...all the time...I will post a picture of my new eyes soon. I feel old.

*I have a job interview today (Wed)- this one is very promising and I am very encouraged. (They have already checked my references - found this lead through someone at church!)

*I am learning Quick Books Pro - but am having computer difficulties - very frustrating.

*I have started Christmas shopping. Yes Christmas shopping. I have finished for Steve's family. I have found the best deals on winter stuff! Totally cool!

*We are getting Sam a BB gun for his birthday. He will be 11 in a couple of weeks.

*Looks like Tori will be working soon...and after that driving regularly.

Now, I have to go get ready for my interview.
Easter Pictures...

Steve bought me a chocolate bunny and a chocolate egg! The first one for me in years - I just put them on my dresser to enjoy looking at them.

Here is a picture of my goodies as I found them next to the kids Easter Baskets Sunday morning...


Tori and Sam....



Sam dying eggs.....Tori decided she is too old!



Resurrection eggs....a wonderful way to explain how and why Jesus died for us. I have used them over the years teaching Sunday School and Children's Choir - but this year we sat down as a family and we took turns opening eggs and explaining the meaning of each.




Me and Steve....

Updates...

I will post some Easter Pictures soon!

Still looking for a job - in the Memphis market it keeps getting tighter and tighter with more layoffs. When will it get better. I emailed my resume yesterday to a job I had applied to before - and I said in the email "See, you should have hired me the first time!" Maybe that will catch their eye. :)

I am very discouraged on the job search front. Obviously, prospective employers don't know what they are missing. Ha!

(This is me trying so very hard not to be depressed)
