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?

Even though many people think the country look is no longer popular, I still love it, and think I always will. I purchased this bedspread for our new apartment and it was delivered to my house today. I was afraid it would be a little too red, but when I opened the box, I was excited to find just the right color inside.... it's brick red with cream accents. I bought the little pillow you see in the center of the picture too. I can't wait to see how it will all look on "our" bed.
Next week will be my last week of work at my current job. I'm receiving lots of goodbyes and well wishes already, which makes me feel sort of sad. I'm truly looking forward to a new beginning, but knowing that I am closing another chapter in my life here brings mixed emotions. I have met many wonderful people here and developed friendships with several people that I will truly miss.
I think living in different areas of the state during my husband's career has been a very rewarding experience and I wouldn't take anything for it. If we had not done so, I would have never met a few very special people in my life, who will never know just how much they have touched my heart. I'm amazed at God's goodness and how he put the right people in the right places, just for me, to make my life a little more special. Thank you, God, for the wonderful people you have blessed my life with!

Really, I'm still here! I've not been reading blogs like I want to and have a lot of catching up to do, but I promise I will. Hubby and I are still in the process of moving a few things to set up his new "man cave", as he calls it. When he returned home from work yesterday, I had hung a cute, cute, cute Easter banner on his front door. His coworker teased him about it, but I reminded him that I will be living here with him soon. hee hee
My last day of work will be March 20 and I will be starting a new job the first part of April. I will have a couple weeks off in between jobs and hope to finish moving my things to the new man cave. (will no longer be called a man cave at that point) This place is little, but it has a lot of decorating potential. While sitting around in here, my mind is constantly racing with ideas of how to make it cute and livable for the next year. Of course, I don't want to spend too much money doing so, since this place is very temporary, but I do want to "smile" when I walk in the door.
I could get into trouble while living here. My favorite store, TJ Maxx, (and several other great stores) are just a block or two away from my home! What a dream come true! I hope I can discipline myself to not go into the store everyday. I hope to find the library here next week. I love libraries and look forward to checking out this town's book collection.
We ordered pizza last night and it took 1 1/2 hours for it to arrive. Needless to say, it was cold and they didn't get our order right. I had my taste buds set on a veggie pizza and it didn't arrive. I called the pizza place and they told me they could have one out within two hours. It was almost 9:00 pm then.... no thanks! Maybe another time.... from a different pizza place.
So, I sent hubby out to the grocery store (two blocks from home) to buy some Reese's cups for me. He came back with a 10 pack. I finished the last one this morning! hmmmm.... from veggie pizza to 10 Reese's cups.... what a healthy person I am.
On a healthy note: I have found a spot for our treadmill in this tiny little place. It will be in the corner of the livingroom, which is not very attractive, but at least it will be here. Maybe then, if I want a Reese's cup, I can walk out the craving on the treadmill. ha! Or at least, walk WHILE eating my candy.
It's raining here today.... raining ... raining.... raining. I have yet to see this new town with sunshine. Each time I have visited, it has rained. Rain, cold pizza, Reese's cups..... welcome home!
I promise I will bring my camera and post "real" pictures soon! Hope you guys have a wonderful weekend!
