A New Journey Begins & Some New Goodies


Hello Everyone!!

What an interesting and Stressful day I have had.
I'm going to start this post a little differently this time.
I'm going to talk about what happened today, which has led me to a new journey in my life.

Well, today I went to a job interview.
And I thought I would go in and they would say.... we'll get back with you in a few days. Or maybe not get the job at all. But that isn't what happened!!!
They hired me at the end of the interview and I start Wednesday!!!!

Oh, man.... everything is changing really quick!!!
I'm going to have to mentally prepare myself for this!!!
And I don't have much time to do it in!!!

With my youngest in HS now and she will driving next year, its time to make some extra money. Because we all know how quickly these years go and before I know it she will be applying to colleges. So Mom must get back out there!!!

I've always been happy just being a Mom and Wife. Taking care of the day to day things. And I never had any real interest in working outside my home.
This is going to take some getting use to. Major adjustments ahead for me.

Plus I can admit it.... I'm shy!!
It takes me awhile to warm up to people and situations.
I know eventually I will at this job.... but Lord please help me until I do!!!

Wish me luck ladies on this new adventure I'm getting ready to take.
And some prayers would also be very welcome!!!! :)




I wanted to share some non Christmas items I got on my trip to TN.

Trust me my pictures don't do these samplers justice.
They are so wonderful in person.
I love them.









This next one is my favorite!!!





I also got the wonderful prim hanging candle holder on my trip.



I still do need to get those pictures taken of my two quilts. Maybe tomorrow I can find some time to get that done.




Well, its almost midnight here and I am worn out. So off to bed I go.
But I want to thank all of you for stopping by to visit me!!!


Until next time....
Prim Filled Blessing to you ALL!!!

Congratulations on your new job! In times like these it's so nice to hear someone is receiving a job instead of losing one.

Hi Tammy,
Congratulations on the new job! I totally relate as I went to work when my boys were in high school after being a SAHM since they were born. It was sure different, but I'm still there and the boys are long gone from home. Hmmmm! I'm sure you will do great. Keep us up to date.

I know what you mean about extra money....we have one in college and our youngest starts high school next year....and needs braces....YIKES...it is always something!
Relax and have fun!
