So, I am at the end of my contract, and working on the new one. Initially, I was really stressed because this new company wanted me to take a HUGE pay cut. We're talking more than $10,000/year. I think we have that worked out now--still a few bugs re:OT. There are a few other issues, but I think it will get worked out. I am keeping my options open, just in case. However, I think the worst part is all the paperwork. They want all this stuff--some of this stuff I haven't seen in 2 years! I'm trying to take care of all of this, work 3 nights in a row, get ready for a party here on Friday and try to leave for FL on Saturday! I think I might be overdoing it. I do have someone coming to clean the house tomorrow. That is a huge weight off my shoulders. I just want all this off my shoulders before we leave! It doesn't help things are stressful for Ralph at work this week either. I am convinced we will make it! Just pray we work together and don't take out our stresses on each other. We're doing great so far, but we're only half-way there. My next post should be of pics from Friday night! We are "celebrating" my 10th year in Ohio! I can hardly believe it, but it's true. It's a good thing I didn't see that coming when I came out here--I might never have come. :) Good night! I'm off to bed! Have a great day!


  1. I will be praying for you and Ralph this week!!! I'm glad you guys will be going to FL, it sounds like it will be a much needed break for both of you!:) I LOVE that you are doing a 10yr celebration-that is a great idea!! I'm sure it will be a blast! Have fun on your trip-I will be looking for the posts!:) Give Mickey a hug from Carter:)!

  2. Wellthat's a lot of craziness. We'll be praying that the week finishes well.I can't believe you've already been in Ohio 10 years! Amazing how time flies! Hope your pary is super and your trip even better. I would tell you to take lots of pics, but I know you will:)
