Here and there...

I hope everyone had a nice St. Patrick's Day. I shopped all day. It was a lovely day. I promised you "real" pictures soon... well, I bought a new pig yesterday, and can't wait to show you its picture. However, my antique computer at home, for some reason, won't allow my new software to upload pic's. Next week, I'll be in my new home again, and I promise there will be pictures!

This cartoon reminds me of a dear friend that I used to work with a few years ago. He was a little short man with a full white beard who had the quirkiest sense of humor of almost anyone I know. I remember when he came to interview for his position and I saw him come through the door. I could tell he would be a funny person with a sense of humor... he was wearing a sailor shirt with a sailor's cap... for his job interview! He and I ended up sharing an office and he became one of my best friends ever... sort of like a father to me. He passed away a year ago from cancer and I think of him often. St. Patrick's day really brings back his memory, because he looked so much like a little leprachaun.

Thursday is my last day of work on my current job. Can I say I'm now happy about that? We had a really rough weekend (abuse investigation) and I hope I never have to be involved with anything like that again! I bought new scrubs yesterday (fun and happy scrubs) and am looking forward to moving on.

My baby turns 21 this month. Where does the time go? My children have grown into wonderful young adults and I am so proud of them.

We have a wedding that will be here very soon. Guess who doesn't have her dress yet? Yep, me! I shopped yesterday and found a really really nice one, but it is too late to order it. Yep, that's me! I do, however, have the option of buying the one off the rack... I may just go back and do that.

Hope your week is going well. What have you been up to?

Penny, you certainly sound like you are starting to enjoy the move. That's great. Good luck on the dress hunt. I've started looking, but right now don't have a clue.

Hi there Penny, when my daughter got married, I COULD NOT FIND a dress! the wedding was in late July and all the spring dresses were gone or on clearance. I finally found one about 2 weeks before the wedding! Good luck on your move and new job and happy birthday to your girl!
