Well, I think I am finally done working so many hours. The gal they hired and trained worked today all by herself and only called me 5 times.............not too bad for her first day alone. I will have to cover for Katie when she gets married in August and goes on a cruise for her honeymoon. I will be doing extra hours in Aug. Three full days per week and I need to figure out which weeks they are. Our adopted daughter needs me to come to Texas the end of July and stay for a week or two. Can't go into detail, but she REALLY needs me. If I'm not covering for Katie at that time, and if they will give me the time off, I have to figure out a way to have enough money to fly there and back and still have enough money for car insurance (purchasing a newer vehicle certainly raises ones amount of car insurance) and summer taxes that are due in the beginning of September. Hubby and I have been talking and so far we haven't been able to come up with a plan, but are not willing to give up on that yet! Anyway, I need to see if I can get the time off work first!

Just found out that my brother-in-law that has been so very sick with some auto immune disease also has Histoplasmosis, which in turn, triggered the auto-immune disease called Sarcadoesis (spelling may be wrong on that one). He is going this Wednesday to some medical center in Novi, Michigan that specializes in the auto-immune disease that he has. If it isn't treated in time, I understand that it will be fatal. Not a very pretty outlook! The only good thing is that we are finally getting answers to all the questions.

On a much brighter and cheerier note.......hubby and I are loving his being on first shift again. Although he has been on overtime ever since he went back to first, which means that he needs to get to bed by 8:30 PM 'cause he gets up at 2:30AM (all overtime is done in the mornging when it is cooler) I still spend most of my evenings alone. But at least we see more of each other this way. And I don't have to wait up until 1:30 in the morning to spend time with him!

Well, that updates almost everything. Except for my flowers, they are very beautiful outside this year. I will try and take some pictures and get them on here for you to see for yourself!

wow...you have a plate full. Don't overextend yourself so that YOU end up sick...we need you! I'm sure that your adopted daughter will understand if finances don't allow you to come. She wouldn't want you to struggle because of this trip, even though I know she really would like/needs you there. Do your best...then let it rest.

Am glad your husband is back on 1st. Even though he's in bed early, there's still something about having someone at home with you. Cherish your time together.
Hugs, dear friend. I've missed you.
