10 Inches Later and What Seems Like 5 Pounds Lighter

Finally, my first short haircut!

Besides cutting my hair off, Trey and I have been making our rounds saying goodbye. I'm all ready to move and now I'm just waiting for it. All I have left to pack is the kitchen. One of the hardest things about leaving is not leaving my home behind, but leaving our dogs. Trey's brother is going to dog sit for us, for no telling how long. This morning I dropped Bruiser off to get neutered. I hope he doesn't cry too much.

Mac Account Expired

My mac account expired and I didn't feel like dishing out the money to renew it.

So, for now I no longer have a host to hold my personal website. Just thought I'd let you know. Bye-Bye website.

I've Never Had This--

Short Hair.

A couple of months ago, I told everyone: I'm growing my hair out to donate it to a child who has cancer. Time has passed and here I am with long hair, headaches, and split ends. It's safe to say I'm ready to butcher my hair. I have an appointment this week and we'll see if I don't chicken-out. As much as I want to cut it, I’m also terrified that it will look hideous. If it turns out to be a bad cut, don't plan on seeing any pictures posted online. Either way, I'll at least write to let you know how the hair looks.

By the way, I'm cutting off at least 10 inches! That's the minimum to donate to this particular hair collection center.

Shacking-Up…..In A Small Space

Since I last posted, things have been moving fast. In a matter of days Trey and I will be moving to Fort Worth to start our new jobs. This weekend we made a trip to the area with Johnny and Joneil, friends from church.

Trey and I are in the process of selling our house here in Abilene and we’ve decided we’ll shack-up in an EFFICIENCY APARTMENT for a few months while we’re in FW and eventually buy a house there. I can barely believe it, but this weekend we found an apartment. When we move into our efficiency apartment I know it will be a drastic change, since our current house is over 1,600 sq feet and this apartment is only 400. Yikes! I’ll adjust and I’m looking forward to living below our means. Joneil told me she’s really proud of us because we’re not using this new job as an excuse to splurge and she said Dave Ramsey would be proud. Who cares what Dave Ramsey thinks because I’m secretly excited about living a much simpler life for a while. You wouldn’t believe how affordable our rent is, even if I told you and the surprising thing about it is that we’re in a really cool part of the city. We have access to two malls, tons of restaurants, shopping, churches, and no telling what else.

I haven't announced this until now, but I’ve been interviewing for a job at the University of Texas in Arlington. Well, today I drove to the Metroplex for a follow-up interview. The interview was great like all great interviews are, so I left saying to myself whatever comes of this so be it.

After the interview I began the drive home. I hadn’t even made it past Fort Worth and they called my cell to ask me to join the team. And of course I said no….yeah right, I said yes before they had a chance to finish the question.

So what will I be doing? They mentioned mopping and sweeping and ….no just joking. I’ll be working in the school of nursing as the Audio Visual Specialist. Sounds different, but it’s exactly in my field of studies. My position supports the school of nursing through distance education, live broadcasting of classroom lectures via internet, video production (my favorite)--- like promotional and marketing videos and probably a little bit of photography.

I’m really not too surprised I got the job, considering I had an army praying for me. I’m telling you the women at my church are prayer warriors. Bravo first to Christ and second to the women at Buffalo Gap Church.

I Still Love My Mac

My Mac is being stubborn.

The other day I was restarting it and it threw a fit. My three year warranty expired some time ago and the extended-extended warranty expired about a year ago. So, I had no choice, but to troubleshoot the computer myself.

I didn't panic and worry about my computer never working again, like I normally do when this thing occurs. Instead, I stayed calmed and focused on fixing the problem. About 20 minutes later, I resolved the error and continued on with my life as if the computer never stopped working.

I know one day I will have to say goodbye to my little Mac. When it eventually dies I know it will be bitter sweet, until then I'm going to enjoy the longevity of this old computer.

The Month of April Brought Snow To West Texas

On the side of our house we have a huge antique rose brush. It always blooms in spring. I took this picture maybe two days ago.

And this picture was taken today. I can't believe it's snowing in April.

Picnic In The Park

Yesterday, I planned a picnic in the park. Trey dusted off his motorcycle and I rolled out my scooter.

Once we got to the park we found a great spot to eat, but the only downside was the sun was blinding. Luckily. Trey brought his baseball cap and let me borrow it.

We felt like kids on a field trip with our brown bags.

It looks like I'm about to smack this duck. I was just trying to feed it.

Trey is such a show off...look at him with all those ducks.
