A few updates on the family, first of all here's a picture Erin sent me and I thought it was a good one, so I wanted to share it...
Hillary is moving back up to Nevada in two weeks. Erin got her a job at Home Depot, where she'll start working right away, and in the meantime she'll be looking for an office job with better pay and hours. It's just something she decided on impulse to do, there's nothing holding her back now that she's single again. I figured she'd end up back there at some point. She's going to live with Erin's friend, she went up there a week ago and met him and they hit it off. That's when this picture was taken.
Erin started her teaching job, they offered her a full-time Special Education position because the person in that position moved to another school. So now she doesn't have to do the half day Kindergarden and half day Special Education. She got to set up the whole program, so she was really excited about that. She also decided to wait until next summer to move to NY, that way she'll have a year of teaching under her belt before she goes.
Seth won in court...the guy never showed up. So he has to wait for the state to issue him another title for his car, and sue the guy in civil court to get all his money back, for the attorney fees, missed work, etc. Yay! I'm happy for him. In the meantime, he's been driving his girlfriend's mothers' car. He and Mary got back together a few weeks ago, I guess. He must've missed her, even though he didn't think he would...lol
Josh finally got his raise, and is now making almost twice as much as me...wth? lol He's doing really well, and happy. I was hoping I would get a raise in November, it will be two years working there, but the guy is moving out of the office so my brother will have to take over the entire rent again, and he just started paying insurance for his new wife and son, $15,000 a year...ouch...he wants me to look around for major medical plans to see what's out there. So I doubt I'll be getting a raise anytime soon. But oh well, that's life huh? ;)
As for me, this is my first weekend home in a while, and I've been catching up on some things here and relaxing. It's been an awesome weekend, but much too fast as usual. Hope you all are having a good one.:)
I think this layout suits me better, maybe I can live with it for a while...Sometimes when I put in a new layout, I lose all my widgets and have to start over, why is that? I probably forgot someone, but I'll still be adding to my links. What a pain. I miss EFX. I haven't decided if I'm going over there or not. For now, I think I'll just stay here and link to the people over there. The thought of starting yet another blog is just not enthusing me...lol
Well you guys all have a great day, catch you later. :D

I got this in an email, and thought it was nice:)
Sometimes we just need to be
A well-known speaker
started off his seminar by:holding up a $20.00
bill. In the room of 200, he asked, "Who would like this
$20 bill?" Hands started going up.
He said, "I am going to give this
$20 to one of you but first, let me
do this. He
proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill.
He then asked, "Who
still wants it?" Still the hands
were up in the air. Well, he
replied, "What if I do this?" And he
dropped it on the ground and started
to grind it into the floor with his shoe. He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.
"Now, who still wants it?"
Still the hands went into the air.
My friends, we have all learned a
very valuable lesson. No matter what
I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value.
It was still worth $20.
Many times in our lives,
we are dropped, crumpled, and ground
into the dirt by the decisions we
make and the circumstances that come
our way. We feel as though we are
worthless. But no matter what has
happened or what will happen, you
will never lose your value. Dirty or
clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still
priceless to those who DO LOVE you. The worth of our
lives comes not in what we do or who we know,
but by WHO WE ARE and
WHOSE WE ARE.
