First of all, I need to mention that I have the most wonderful husband. He is so loving and supportive and I am so blessed to have him in my life. God is so good to me. :)
Thank you so much for all of your prayers for Walter's job. Walter got a new job and started Thursday of last week! He is working for Bengal Capital in downtown Chicago. It's a growing trading company and Walter is in charge of all their computer and networking stuff. It's great because he in many ways gets to be his own boss. So far he is really enjoying it. He takes the 5:30am train into the city and then comes home no later than the 4:30pm train. He pretty much works when the stock exchange is open. He enjoys working in the city again (about ten years ago he worked in the Sears tower) and the time to "check-out" on the train. Plus, it's so nice to have him on a consistent routine -- now I'm the one who's not around! :)
My jewelry business continues to thrive and grow. Even though the economy is struggling, our company and my business isn't. Our jewelry is so affordable, that people are still willing to spend and we make such good income that people consistently want to get involved. The most amazing thing is that Premier is 100% debt-free! That was a huge priority for the founders when they started the company in 1985. So, in these tough economic times, this company is around to stay! It's wonderful to be working with such an amazing, biblically-based company.
On another note...I'm so sad the Cubs let Kerry Wood go. I understand the reason why, but it's still tough. :( Oh, well. Life will go on.
Ooo...and to peak your interest...in honor of turning 30 in less than a month, I've decided to totally change my hair. Yep, I'm going to chop it! I have NEVER had short hair, so wish me luck. My hair appointment is on Tuesday and I'll be sure to post a photo. :)
