8 Interviews later....


I feel like a runaway train lately. Feeling like I can't catch my breath.

I've been "looking". Working on my work "life" story, practicing answering those questions, making sure my suits are oh so appropriate.

Hoping that the people I meet with will "see" me. See my potential. See my fit.

Eight in person and phone interviews with eight different people for one position.

Seems a bit much, no?




Not very patiently waiting. I know it is a virtue & one that I really strive to attain but.... Honestly? I'm not there yet.

Eight interviews later and they decide that experience in a certain industry is a MUST.

Tears were shed. Eyes were dried.

So to look at the positive side, I've had a lot of practice now! On to the next!!

Fly Free, Fly High

When I think back at all that has transpired this past year one thing that has rocked my world to the core was the loss of beloved Lisa. If you didn't have a chance to get to know Lisa you still can. Her beauty is one that never fades.

She made me laugh, she made me smile.

There were times she made me drool. As in this time she posted a recipe for Krispy Kreme Bread Pudding which looked amazing!

My comment: Oh for SHUT THE F UP! Save me now. Can I come over when you make this? How about just shipping me some?

Her Response: You're hilarious, love that about you!
Schedule a dentist appointment for the next day!
Can also be made with powdered sugar donuts as well!
I would bake up a storm if you really were coming, if nothing else, you'd go home with tight britches dahlin'!

I miss those witty comments and the quick emails to check up on a girl.

I miss her beautiful posts. The images she found were breathtaking.

She was a beautiful woman who was one to uplift others. Always with a kind word and a funny comeback. She celebrated being a woman & lifted us all up with these beautiful pictures.

She was passionate about the beauties in her life.

I miss the SATC quotes and her love for Carrie Bradshaw.

Lisa, I know you had so much love in your life. I'm so thankful to have had you in mine.

We're halfway there

Thank you so much. So many of you stopped in, let me know you were thinking of us and praying for us.

I can't say enough thank you's.

We've known since Memorial Day that Mr. Potts' job was in danger with his company potentially being sold. He learned today that while things will be changing, he'll still be employed.

So half of what we've been so anxious/worried/stressed out about is behind us. We still have half of our obstacles in front of us, but I'm so thankful that we're at the half-way point.

Thank you all again for your thoughts and prayers.

I'll be back to regular posting soon.
