Let's see. What's been going on this week? There are so many little things that I think of telling you, then I blog something "big" and forget all the little stuff.
For one thing, I got my hair cut and permed last week. Wes really likes my hair curly, and I must admit that it does perk me up a bit. I got the work done last Thursday. The lady said to come back for any fixes that I wanted, and by Sunday morning, it was very obvious I needed some fixin'. I looked slightly like Bozo the Clown! I went back on Monday and asked her to give me some bangs and layer my hair all over, so it would curl and not just frizz. So she layered me, and now the frizz is gone, but so is a lot of my curl. I do have lots of body, however, so it's ok. Today is the first day it's actually looked decent. I was really about to cry, because I had saved my money for several months to get this done, it took all of it, and I had a frizzy mess to show for it.
Sam's Spring Break starts tomorrow, and he was chosen to be in a tour group that will sing in church over the weekend and next week. They're going to Las Vegas tomorrow, and I'm not sure where else they'll be. So if you're in Vegas (living there!) and go to an independent Baptist church having a singing group this week, the bass singer is my boy. Be sure you say hi to him!
Speaking of Sam, it seemed like he looked for a job forever. He finally has one, and it's a great one. He signed on with Direct TV/Verizon, selling their combined package for internet, TV, and phone service. He gets a signing bonus for the first four weeks, and a certain amount per day when he sells at least one package on that day. After that sale, he makes a commission. His first week, he has made 6 sales! Lord willing, this semester will be paid for shortly, and he can begin saving for next semester. He is doing great, very excited about his job, loving school, and having the time of his life. I can't wait to see him next month! It's a bonus for us. He leaves for summer tour the day of graduation, and we won't see him this summer until his group is at our church in August.
Our church is meeting in our home again for Thursday night Bible study. Our people seem to really enjoy meeting at our house. We fix coffee and hot tea, and everyone makes themselves at home. Wes is able to take his time teaching, and we have more time for prayer requests and prayer too.
I'm considering opening an Etsy shop. I think I'd like to focus on some baby things. I'm working on a little crib quilt right now, copied from one that was given to me by a dear friend when I was expecting Beth. I don't know if I'm doing it "right," but it sure is turning out cute. I'll keep you updated on the shop, and maybe share a picture or two of my quilt blocks so far. I know I won't open it till after our trip to Georgia, because I won't be available during that time, obviously! ;) That will also give me some time to work on some of the ideas I have.
Well, I think those are all the little things that have been on my mind this week. I've been doing better at staying off the computer. Thank you all so much for your comments on my post about being addicted to this crazy thing. You were each a true blessing and encouragement to me!
Have to run . . . almost time for Bible study!
