Light at the end of the tunnel

I had a job interview yesterday afternoon that went really, really well. I have a pretty good feeling about it, keeping my fingers crossed. It is something that I have never done before so I know it will definitely be quite a change, but after being in Daycare for 18 years I guess change may be a good thing. When Ahoskie Methodist Daycare closed in May, and after having Little People's University for 15 years, I told everybody I didn't want to do Daycare anymore......I wanted something different.......but I will have to admit I find myself really missing the little ones........and the parents too......well.......some of them not so much (ha)........

I can say I never in a million years would have ever thought I would find myself in the position of not having a job........but.......in April Colin got his news (on a Friday afternoon) that Lee Tractor was closing in a week.......and that same weekend (Sunday afternoon) I got my notice that the Daycare was closing May 30th.........what a devastating feeling.........so many emotions & thoughts & questions.........at our ages.......finding ourselves starting all over.......but......it just goes to show there is a definite plan for us all.........

Colin has since started working with Gay Implement in Seaboard and really enjoys what he's doing...........he's a Salesman in Southampton County, Va.

I have to say I would not have traded this summer with Corey for anything (except maybe the worries)........I have never been able to spend real time with him and he's 8......so it was great!......we did all kinds of 'fun' stuff together..........I think we really got close, I guess I should say closer because we have ALWAYS been close........being a mommy is the BEST job in the world......

These past 6 months have really made me stop & think about what is really important in life.....and it's not the material things.....it's the realtionships......

Sorry for going on & on & on........But say a little prayer for me & the job.......I'll hear from it around the 15th.....Wish me Luck and have a Great Weekend!

That's right, claim it! I didn't realize you were the Shari that use to own Little People's. I've probably heard your name a million times! Good luck and I can't wait to hear.
