My people 2015

Friday, November 16, 2012


Jason and I have been married for over 17 years. I worked full time until Dylan was almost 2. I worked part time at FWB until Braxton was about 9 months. My boss begged me to do a monthly project from home which I did for a couple of years. I loved my job and the people I worked with. It really was hard when I quit but my kids came first. The bank was bought out & I lost my fabulous once a month job. I worked at a gas station (not my proudest moment - kind of had fun with a friend on Friday nights) for about 6 months. Had a crazy idea to teach preschool at my house. It was ok and worked out until mom got cancer. Then my dear friend, Angie asked me to watch her cute Riley which I LOVED and did for about 3 years. Now the kids are all in school all day and I'm just home. For the very first time ever I'm not working. To be honest, it's weird. I was completely lost for a month. I had this thought that with all of this time I would get so much done - cleaning, organizing, totally on top of everything. I was so very wrong! I feel more crazy now than before. I volunteer at the school quite a bit, still help with Grandma & Grandpa, and time just seems to fly between running errands for kids, appointments, carpool, dance, golf, soccer, wrestling, scouts, piano, and the list goes on and on. I am keeping my ears peeled for that perfect, layed back 10 hour a week fun job but until then I'll just keep swimming and enjoy my new job :)
 Spent quite a while looking for Dylan's phone and switching his service over to my old phone only to have him find it the day I switched the service over. Bless his heart!!
 My girl playing soccer with her little friends.
 Golf, golf, and more golf.
 Watching Tangled at the dentist office.
 Nati's class play - "The Little Red Hen". So cute :)
 Nati and Easton after the play - He's known as Buddy at our house.
 Braxton's play. He's the one on the left playing leap frog.
 Braxton and Grace after the play :)
Me with Riley. Such a sweet kid & I miss his funny, cute comments and personality.
Braxton was Student of the Week during the first month of school.

Months and months of work
Finding people
Waiting for responses
And more waiting
Wanting perfection
Excited and...
More stress
Looking through yearbooks
Bethany & I in the Light Parade. The one thing I was in charge of. It turned out great and the 40' trailer (thanks to Steph) was filled with everyone and their families. I started to exhale that night. But not fully until Saturday night at maybe midnight.
 Shavon, Kayla and Easton having loads of fun with glow sticks and candy.
 Ryan Anderson & I at the Homecoming Assembly. Kathryn did a fabulous job - way to go Kath!!
 The few that made it to the assembly.
Tailgate party before the big game. Cheryl, me, Julie, Bethany, Brandi and Shannon. Good job Beth!!
 Julie & I at the game. We've been friends since the 6th grade - love her!!
Kathryn & I greeting people at the dinner. There were only 2 people that I had to really dig deep to figure out who they were.
 Missing a few friends but we had a blast that night.
 We graduated when.... oh, that's right - 20 years ago. But we're still funny :)
 SHS Class of '93
