Default Remember me???????????

Hello Friends,

Well I've finally got around to checking in!!! My life has been completely turned around since I gave up daycare. All for the good.

In a nutshell---I love my job at the bank. Considering that I knew nothing about banking when I started. I left WalMart in October. I finally woke up and realized what a terrible company they are to work for. I now work a few nights at AC Moore Craft store for my old manager from WalMart. My stress level has decreased tremendously.

My kids are doing well in college. My son however, is still haunted by kidney stones. He had more problems this school semester. When he came home for winter break, he had surgery on 3 very large stones. Hopefully this is the end. He goes to the doctors for a follow up tomorrow.
We are headed to Tampa this Friday to take them back. My husband, mom, dad and I will then spend a relaxing week in Tampa.

Hopefully I will be checking in more often. Not sure if I can post everyday but I'll try.

I have read a few of the post from the Cruise of the Century. I also chcecked out the pictures. Boy do I wish I was there.

I have have missed you very much and I'm so happy to be back.

Of course I remember you Cheryl! Lucky you, escaped from daycare!!
Glad to hear everything is going well for you. Too bad you couldn't make the Cruise of the Century, it was a real "family feel"! But we're still all right here, so welcome back to the family!

Hi Cheryl,
I have not posted in awhile also. I am reading Lou Dobb's book and feeling frurstrated with the whole system of big companies like Walmart. I feel bad for people who have to go on food stamps because they can not make ends meet with Walmart pay. (Not that you had to but single mothers etc.)

I like to read your posts so it is good to see you are back in time for me. haha

I hope you had a good trip with your sons.

Karen

Welcome back! You seem as though the weight of the world has been lifted from your shoulders. Good to see you and even better to hear how wonderful you're getting along.

Well.... considering that you are a Bosox fan, and I am somewhat... I guess I'll acknowledge your return... Welcome Back!!! I was thinking of you just yesterday and wondering what was up with you.

Oh, when was the last time the Sox were in the Series??? Oh, that's right... the 'Stros were in there two years ago and the Sox???


Go Astros!!!! 8)
