Since I haven't blogged in quite a while, I guess I'd better try to update everybody on what's going on in my life. This is the last week of finals and the last week of school!! I am so ready for it to be over. Don't get me wrong, I am very glad I did this--it has helped me tremendously. Very soon I will be where Kevin was just 2 weeks ago--pounding the pavement looking for a good job. I know those are hard to find and I will try to just let God direct me where to go to find one. I am glad that Kevin finally found a job--it was going to get scary really soon. I know this isn't much, but I really lead a very boring life. More later. Bye.

Will the bad luck ever end? I go out Sunday morning ready to go to church and guess what?!? The van won't start. Nick is ready to go because it's his birthday and he has big plans. He has all kinds of things he wants to do. We call Chris Nunn (a friend of ours) and ask him to come and get Nick. I call my mechanic and ask him when he can come look at the van. He asks me what is it doing? I explain to him and even take the phone out and try to start it again. By that time it is not making any noise at all. He asks me to turn on the lights and try to start it. They stayed on. He said it sounds like the starter. Well, I call friends (have to wait until after church) and make arrangements to get a starter for the van. My mechanic says he will come Monday morning to work on it. Fast forward to Monday morning--my mechanic comes here and looks at the van and he decides to try to jump the battery. Guess what!! it was the battery. It cost me about $50 less, but it still cost me about $100 that I didn't really have extra. Well, maybe one day we'll get ahead, I just don't know when. Hopefully next time I post I will be my old optimistic self. It just seems like I've had a lot dumped on me lately-- I guess I'm allowed a bad day every once in a while. I need to vent sometimes. It does get better, doesn't it????????????????????

Well, guys, Kevin hasn't found a job yet. He is driving to all the surrounding towns and putting in applications, but no job offers yet. Nick and I miss him and he misses us. It has been a long week for all of us. This Sunday is Nick's birthday- he will be 17! It just seems like yesterday I was changing dirty diapers. They grow up so fast. Kristie is doing fine- she like it in Emporia. I guess she likes married life, also. I know this a short post, but when nothing is happening, there is nothing to write. More later.

I went through and read all the blogs I normally read and I realized that of all the ones that have been too busy to blog I am behind the most (except for Taylor, who looks like he has given up). It has been a rough month. As you most know Kevin is now unemployed. Cut-backs at Federal Mogul, and he was one of them. I have been trying to go to school and with so much on my mind lately it has been really hard to concentrate on my classes. This is to the point that one of my classmates and friend has commented several times that I am not myself because I can't seem to pay attention or remember anything. Thankfully, she has been trying to keep me straight. Kevin has had several things fall through so he decided to do something radical. He left for Berryville, Virginia this morning at 4:18 a.m. We have friends there he will stay with. As it stands right now he will stay for 2 weeks unless he gets a job there. If he gets a job he will stay and try to come home Thanksgiving. He already has one interview on Monday morning so please pray for him-it pays really good and it was very similar to what he was doing at his last job. This is a big step for us because we have lived in Monticello together all of our 23 years of marriage. Kevin moved here when he was in the 7th grade. We are all scared to death because we will be basically starting over, but we think there are more opportunities in that area. We also feel God is leading us there. It's really hard to know for sure where we will eventually end up, but we know that He is with us wherever we are. He is driving his old beat-up, Honda Accord, 5-speed with over 200,000 miles on it and this a test of my faith today and tomorrow to try my best not to go insane with worry about him. But I KNOW that God will take care of him because I have asked. Thank you Lord. I'll try to keep you updated about the trip and job hunt. Thanks for all your prayers!!

Is it me, or is it just wishful thinking? Is there a little coolness in the air? Just a little when the wind blows??? I love this time of year when it starts cooling down just a little bit. It brings relief and hope that the heat will be over with someday. I love yellow, red, and yes, even brown leaves falling off the trees. Although this year I think the leaves started falling early because of the scorching heat and no rain. Fall just always gives me a little lift and that is something I really need right now. Bring on the cold weather!!!!!
