Tim talked to our son....looks like he's going to stay where he's at for the time being. I don't know if he went through with the lunch with the owner of the other dealership or not, but his present employer made a lot of promises so he's going to give it another chance. That's good I think. I hate to see him so unsettled at work with a new baby due August 4. We'll just keep praying it all works out for the best.
And speaking of work....
I'm taking our daughter out to put in job applications this morning. Where? Everywhere! She says she wants a job, but hasn't exactly been ambitious in the search and I am tired of ending up in fights with her when I try to talk to her about little things like, oh.....responsibility and being a little less slug-like. The fact that she stays out most of the night and sleeps most of the day is wearing thin. A hard dose of reality is about to be delivered. Keep us both in your prayers today. I'm going to need all the help I can get to remain calm and loving and she's going to need help to be even a little receptive.
Tomorrow is the preview day for the library's used book sale....one of my favorite days of the summer. You know me and books. Anyway, it costs $5 to get in and then the books are $1 each, 50 cents for paperbacks. It all raises money for the library and I get first shot (I am there when the door opens) at the donated books. I won't go again until Thursday when it is $1 per bag day....all the books you can cram in a grocery bag for $1. This is where I get the bulk of my books for the year. By the time the sale is over each year I've usually added close to 40 new books to my library.
Mom and her husband leave for Florida on Monday. Two years ago John received proton therapy for prostate cancer. This is a regular check-up. They are allowing two days to drive down, two days at the treatment facility, and on the way back John wants to go to the Okefenokee Swamp....he's gone hunting twice before at a place that stocks wild game from all over the world....he's shot a wild boar and some kind of African deer the other two times. I don't know if he's actually planning to hunt this time or not.
We get to babysit the Schnauzer while they are away. Should be interesting....she hates the new puppy.
Well, Megan's alarm went off and she is actually up and moving so I guess I'd better get ready to go, too. Have a wonderful Friday and if you're looking for something to read....stop back tomorrow for my Saturday Share links.
