New Horizons

Life changes are now in full swing.

I've started my new full time job and will be in training for about two weeks - mostly getting to know their computer system and understand their expectations. This place is phenomenal in their professionalism and attitudes. The doctors I've met so far are over-the-top. I met four out of the ten yesterday, which was a suprise to my director. Whoo HOOO!!

And now that DH has my laptop re-plugged, I can now sit at this new Hy-Vee in town and surf my life away or even work for the missions group when needed, outside the home. It's perfect.

Transitioning for DH has been fairly comfortable up until yesterday. Transferring files to the new company is not going smooth and he's frustrated. I don't blame him. He's pulled back one employee for two half days this week to get this fixed. Not sure what the deal is there. I know he is stressed, too, that he can't call me whenever he wants to. I have a real job now. And it's going to be tough for him for a little while. Keep praying for him that things will smooth out.

DD#1 has an ultrasound this Thursday, so please keep them in your prayers, too.

Y'all keep safe and keep leaning on the One who will keep ya going. :)

Are you all ready for THIS?

OK, I know it's been since Sept. 11th since the last post, but honestly, there has been SO many things going on and it just didn't feel right dragging everyone along with us on this ride.

So here are the updates as of today: (and don't be shocked)

1. Haven't had Internet at the house for over a month, too expensive. Found a plan through my cell phone company for almost half the price of what we had before! That's a big WOOO HOOO!

2. Decided to close our business doors. Cleaning up jobs that we know will pay and then shut them thar doors. It's over. Now that's a big WHEW!

3. I have been offered a full time job WITH benefits at a Lincoln based optimology group working in their business finance department. I start the 14th of October! Yet another WOOOO HOOOOOOOO!

4. Bill has been offered a couple of jobs, thought about brokering out printing, too. BUT after weighing all the pros and cons, we think we've come to a decision for him to be a salesman for a local print shop who is NOT struggling, 'cuz they are bigger than we ever thought of being. He will be SUCH an asset to them and they are excited to have him on board. No more headaches with our own machinery or employee attitudes. Now how's THAT for a super duper YEEEEEE HAAAAAA!!!!!!

5. Our DD#2 has made an appointment (finally) with an attorney to get divorce proceedings underway. She is so happy, so lively, just a different woman. We pray that God will just keep helping her be strong for herself and those precious little ones of hers. PRAISE GOD!

6. House isn't selling, but we are able to stay a little bit longer in it than we had anticipated. We are thankful since we thought the biz and the house were going to have to go at the same time. Thank goodness we are only having to deal with one at a time now. HALLELUJAH!!!

7. So grateful for the friends and family that have been so strong for us during this distressing time. The phone calls, the cards, the emails have all been SO comforting to us. THANK YOU!

There really is so much more, but you all deserved an explanation for my lengthy absence on the blog and on the internet.

Thank you ALL for your continued prayers and support. BLESSINGS!
