Not Exactly New - Just Visiting One of My Old Haunts

Hello.

Some of you will remember me. Some fondly, some with bad memories or memories of my whining days.

We've been in our house now for 5 years. I've been laid off twice in 2 years and am now working 30 hours a week and going to school full time for my MBA. Single and liking it (I have no idea where I would find time for a man with my busy schedule)

Kids are great. Oldest is 20 and is a department manager at a national retail store. He has an 18 year old girlfriend who is literally "the girl next door" and she is going to college.

My daughter, the middle child, is in 8th grade, is an honor roll student and is a soloist in her school's choir, in a children's youth chorale and a member of our state's honor's choir.

My youngest is now in 5th grade and has a knack for building and tinkering with things. He is doing well in school and keeps me on my toes.

That's about all that is going on here...I hope everyone's lives are going great.

Andrea

I wasn't very happy with the job I was last laid off from. It was good money but it was sucking the life from me.

I like the part time job and maybe will stay with the company after I get my MBA. If not, they are a great place to work while going for my MBA and they are very flexible with my scheduling.

I am hoping that once I get my MBA I will not have to move to find a job...I love my house, my friends, my community, but if I have to move from Michigan to get a job, I will.

Life is good. It really is.

I'll buck the trend, I don't think her kids are all that in the cute department. not all kids are cute. they have other attributes that make up for that, but look at tweedle's aiden, that is a cute kid. and your kids mel, those are adorable kids. Her's are average. I wouldn't take a second look passing her on the street.

"I was just arguing global warming again this past week with someone. She watched Gore's POS movie and believes every freckin' work of it. I told her that he can't even get the hurricane on the cover to spin the right way, and that's just the START of the problems with that movie. Needless to say the conversation with her went downhill from there." -- a meteorologist friend

Wow, what a blast from the past. I remember you.

However, you probably don't remember me, since I generally fly under the radar.

Hey, it's good to see you! Click here to enlarge I'm glad things are generally going so well for your family. (I mean, the layoff isn't exactly going well, but the MBA sounds good...you know what I mean.)

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy.
