25 years of work in one place... all over as I walked out the door on Friday.
I still can't believe it.
I thought I was going to be OK.... but I got choked up from the moment I walked in the door & realized, this is my last morning coming in.
The day went by in a blur really - going over final things with coworkers & getting to go out to lunch with a friend & then it was time to say the goodbyes. I hate goodbyes. Truly hate them. But I got out the door & got in my car & had a mini melt down. It was like I had the thoughts that this wasn't real life.... & thinking, what did I just do?
... but the further I drove away, the more excited I got about my new beginnings.
I'm just feeling like God is going to do amazing things... whether it be at this new job, or just putting me on a new path ... I dont know what lays ahead... but its going to be an adventure.
... & an adventure began really quick because I was home for just about an hour when I got a phone call from my dad that the ambulance was on the way to get my mom.
Well, she's been sick the past week... & when she got sick, she ended up slipping in the kitchen & couldnt get up. My brother & dad tried to get her up but she would just scream in pain so they had to call the ambulance so they could get her up. They thought she may have broken her neck, hit her head, thought her shoulder & knee was broken. Bad stuff....
So I got to the hospital.... & ended up having to wait for nearly an hour for the ambulance. WHAT???? ... I'm not sure what took so long. My dad even beat them & he left the house the same time they did - he beat them in about 10 minutes of time.
They did all kinds of scans & xrays & everything, thankfully, checked out OK...
Except I'll fast forward & tell you, she's back in the hospital. She still just is sicker than a dog & cant stop vomiting (gross, I know - imagine how she feels) - its not the flu or anything. She has no fever, & its just a different sort of sickness. Needless to say, she's in the hospital & getting a scope done this morning. Prayers all that works out & they at least get some answers to help her feel better. & for the soreness from her fall to ease up.
Saturday, I also got to deal with Bruno who isn't feel well. My poor boy. I'm getting ready nervous about him & wondering how much time I have left with him. Breaking my heart.
But I left Ricky in charge of the dogs for the day & went to go serve with my MSM girls at our church. Our church is packing up 1 Million meals for Uganda & our own church was in charge of making 150,000 meals. It was great that these girls came to serve together.

though everyone called me an Elf all night long ;) haha
We ended up leaving from there & went out to eat & then went to go see Wonder together.
OH MY GOSH... so good. SO much better than I expected. I'm really picky about books becoming movies... I totally approve of this one.
You should have heard all the crying from all our girls. Ahhh - their precious hearts.
Sunday had me back at MSM - I was all about these girls this weekend....
& then headed up to the hospital to see mom...
& then our girls bible study was doing a FRIENDSGIVING...
we finished up our last week in our Bible study we had been doing & then the girls invited some boys to come hang out & have a little Thanksgiving together.... except for turkey, we had pizza & instead of pumpkin pie, we had lots of cookies & brownies... way better if you ask me!
The churches Student Connection pastor came & did a devotional on gratitude & then we played a Girl vs Boy battle of the sexes game... it turned out really competitive & in the end - TIED... even after a tie breaker. It was a great time together. These kids are just so amazingly special.
So I stumbled in the house late on Sunday... & OH SO GRATEFUL I'm off this week...
though I already have a pretty packed week planned.... but just glad to not have to think about leaving my job - or focus yet on starting my new one. Let me get through Thanksgiving before I really start freaking out. Hint - I'm going to be a HOT MESS Sunday. Someone may need to call Ricky & check on him because I'm sure he's going to be nuts just being near me.
So... how was your weekend?
Have any Thanksgiving celebration?
You working this week?
