Back From Columbus!

Yes, I went to Columbus this past weekend to see my middle child and family. My youngest grandchild, Luke (2 months), was dedicated to the Lord at church on Sunday, and I wanted to be there for that. Stuart drove over from Atlanta on Sunday in time for church, so we had a wonderful time visiting with each other. Mitch's parents were also there, and we all got to eat lunch together before I left for home. How precious those two little boys are and how I miss them today! Guess I'll have to run out to Angela's this afternoon after work and see her bunch to fill the empty spot. I'm so blessed to have at least one child and three grandchildren close by. If they ever move, Steve or Mitch may be stuck with a live-in mother-in-law. ha. Bet that will increase their prayer life!! Or, maybe I'll just move in with Stuart or vice versa. I'm not gonna dwell on any of those possibilities before necessary but just thought I'd put the "threat" in for my sweet sons-in-law. Not much else to report on for now. Until next time, I love you Steve, Angela, Meredith, Ethan, Emily, Mitch, Jawan, Andrew, Luke and Stuart. Mom.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to all my sweeties!!! I hope all of you had a wonderful day filled with love for each other and most of all for God. My day has been very good. When I got to work this morning, there was a gift from the firm on my desk and on my way home from work, I got a call on my cell phone from a couple in my church asking to take me to dinner. So, I ate with them and had a wonderful time chatting and getting to know them better. Then, whenI got home, I had a message on my answering machine from Brian. I called him back, left him a message, and finally got a call back from him. We talked for at least 35 to 40 minutes and it made my day! Heidi was sick but I got to chat with her for a minute or two. I do hope they get to move back South sometime soon so we can all visit.

My weekend was wonderful as well. On Friday night, I picked up Emily and went to the church to help decorate for the Valentine banquet for Saturday night. Emily spent the night as usual and we returned to the church on Saturday morning to finish the decorating. Wow, was it ever festive and colorful. We had a wonderful turnout for the banquet (steak, baked potatoe, salad, tea and desserts) and the games we had planned were great. Everyone had a blast. It was cold on Sunday outside but very warm in God's house. We had a wonderful service.

Well, today the move began at work. I am now assigned to my original boss and a younger associate, which is great with me. He does most of his own work on the computer, and most of my job with him will be scheduling and filing. I'm moving back across the hall to my original desk where I started 15 years ago. ha. Two attorneys, two secretaries and one paralegal are moving back into our building upstairs with me, so I'll have "neighbors" at the desks down the hall. I love change and am looking forward to going in tomorrow morning to work on transferring all of my stuff.

I'm planning to go see my youngest grands this weekend as Luke (2 months) is being baptized/dedicated. I can hardly wait to get my hands on both Andrew and Luke. They are so precious! I think Emily is going with me, so we'll have a great time playing with each other.

That's it for this post. Until next time, I love you Steve, Angela, Meredith, Ethan, Emily, Mitch, Jawan, Andrew, Luke and Stuart!!!! Mom.

Better Late Than Never

I hope this makes sense. I had to take yesterday off due to vertigo. I'm back at work today but still feel a little woozy when I get up. As mother used to say, "I'm just bouncing off the walls." ha. There's not much to report of interest, so I'll just bore you with "stuff." Last weekend was good and involved (1) going to Meredith's 15th birthday party on Friday night, (2) keeping Emily overnight Friday night, (3) going shopping on Saturday with two church friends to get our Valenine banquet decorations, and, of course (4) church on Sunday. On Monday after work, I decided to go to Lowe's and look at carpet since I've already had the measurements done. Well, I looked at the many choices and came away discouraged. Maybe not discouraged but confused. I'm going to have to have someone help me with this decision. I'll be glad for volunteers!! I still haven't been told anything at work as to what transitions are to be made. Since my younger boss left, it practically wiped out my work load. My older boss (one of the owners of the firm) has assured me that my job is secure and they are working on some things. So until then, I'm just helping out whoever needs help and trying to s-t-r-e-t-c-h it out to fill the day. ha. A down day every once in a while is good but not on a long-term basis. I'd rather be busy!! As I said at the beginning, there's nothing really newsy to report - just wanted to update to make it worth your while to click in. Until next time, I love you Steve, Angela, Meredith, Ethan, Emily, Mitch, Jawan, Andrew, Luke and Stuart!!!! Mom.
