"She's Alive!!!"

The new look is totally throwing off my game. What's happening here?

Just wanted to do a quick check in. Life has been moving really fast lately. It was a hard week, but it's been a great weekend so far.

We instated a new policy at work last week, and three people quit over it. What? I was totally taken by surprised. It is a good policy, and if people are leaving over it, good riddance. But it has made us suddenly short staffed at a very busy time of year. I am thankful for getting some overtime here and there, but it was kind of a rough week. Hopefully we will have our entire staff back next week (had a til six-er out sick and one out serving on a jury) and it will be easier on everyone.

Last night Brett came with me to see one of our part time girls perform in her Spring dance recital. She is SO sweet! She was a student at the school growing up, and last year when she started at a community college she came applying for part time work. She is one of our hardest workers. Never complains, loves the kids, and they are in love with her. I was happy to support her and come see her dance. Wish we had sat on the back row. Would have had more leg room and no drunk people behind us. Those were the two downers of our experience. But still glad we went.

This afternoon, we went and visited my dad who is competing this weekend in his second competitive barbecue cook-off. It was so neat! The best weather you could ask for, tons of friendly people and SERIOUSLY delicious food. They will be announcing the winners soon and I hope that my dad places. His brisket was ridiculous!

Tonight we are headed to Galaxy Drive-in with our Sunday school class. Not any great movies out, but always a fun experience and the absolute best weather for the drive-in. We love going =-)

I tracked Weight Watcher points this week, for the first time in probably two months. It was a long time coming, but I think I am maybe arising from the darkness I seem to have been walking through for a while. Praying for God's grace, mercy and strength.

Hopefully you will hear from me more, if there is anyone out there still checking in on me =-)
