This is going to be cheesy and flaky, as all get out! I didn’t think a card would do justice, so I am writing you a birthday post. Today you turned 42, and I still find you as perfect as the fifth day we met!!!LOL
I never believed in the idea of a soulmate, but I knew God had someone planned for me. So even as a 15-year-old little girl writing on papers and stuffing it under my pillow, I knew you would come. Here we are both walking down that 40ish path some 21 years later. I just want to say, I love you to the last breath in my body. You are my husband, my best friend, my Ark tribe member, my encouragement, my metal pillar when I’m falling, and the love of my existence. Without you in my life, I would be a storm of crazy floating in the air, you center me. You gave me something to believe in when I didn’t have any reason to believe. You gave me friendship when I didn’t know how to give it back, and you gave me three awesome girls. Sadly with your toes!! I am just so grateful and happy to be your wife. I love you and even those toes!

Fishing Boat

I'm trying to save up for the Pelican Predator 10'3 fishing boat. It's 849.00! If you know anyone in Texas who wants to gift a boat because they don't need it anymore, that would be even better. At this rate it's going to take me a long time to save up!!!

Are You Interviewing Your Interviewer?

  Are You Interviewing Your Interviewer?

Interviewing is something we must all do at some point and time. It doesn’t matter if you are interviewing for your first job or your fifteenth job. The interviewing process hardly ever changes. I have noticed one common mistake that people make when they are looking for a new position and I am not talking about forgetting the resume. By now it’s safe to say we all know forgetting resumes can kill a job chance.

Yet, the other mistake I often hear about is people forgetting to interview the employer. We are so worried about the hair, clothes, shoes and pronunciation of our words that we forget the most important part of the interview. Do we know the company and what that company stands for? When my husband was stationed in Kentucky, I interviewed for a correctional officer position. Now back then I was shy and awkward. Okay, I’m still awkward, but not the shy little lady anymore! After I got off the phone with the correctional department, I found myself energized. I jumped up and went shopping for the perfect dress, shoes and prepared my greeting over and over. Finally, the interview day came. There I was standing before a group of three older men. They told me about the position and how much money the position came with, then it was my time to ask the questions.

1. Do I get a gun?
Answer: No

2. Do I get mace?
Answer: No

3. Are they locked up?
Answer: You are all in an area together, but you will get a little walkie-talkie so if anything happens you can push the button for help. You will be in a room with about 50 to 100 men. This is a minimum-security prison.

4. Does that mean killers are at the maximum facility?

Answer: No. We have murderers and rapist here too.

So, by this time, I’m mentally halfway to my car. I remember them asking for an updated phone number and me stuttering something like I’ll leave it on my way out. After the door opened, I ran to my car. I didn’t walk, I ran. I still wonder to this day, if they had me on camera. I would probably replay it repeatedly just for laughs, but I’m kind of flaky like that.

My questions helped me predict a potential early job exit. It’s better to know what a company is about then to get a job and quit within a few weeks of working. It’s also important to know how your potential employer feels about children and parenting. Do you have small children, or do you have children with special needs? If you have either one of these situations, you will have to spend time at meetings and be on a time schedule for picking up your children. Make sure you think before you sign on that line. These things are important because the wrong job can cause a world of problems and those problems flow into your family. Make sure the next time you interview for a job, you have your questions ready. You want to know if the potential employer is a fit for your family, just like he/she needs to know that you are a fit for the company.

I’m sure by now, many of you have heard of the group BTS. They have inspired a movement as it seems in tweens and teens across the world. Yes, I said the world people! These boys are nearly a billion dollar group and I think it’s because they are selling love.

My daughter explained ever so passionately that there is a difference between BTS and other groups. She stated that BTS teaches people how to love themselves no matter what. She revealed how upset she was after she broke up with her boyfriend last year, and how their music made her understand why the breakup was needed.

We Must Save America From America

Pay very close attention to the next few weeks. If the Republicans push Kavanaugh through without a true investigation, it will send a very straight and pointed message regarding women. Now is the time to vote more than ever because the future of our daughters depend on it. Are we looking at something like the beginning of a Muammar Gaddafi leader in the making when it comes to Trump? He might not have the military background that Gaddafi had, but I see problematic written across this canvas. There’s a reason why he wants to push Kavanaugh through so badly. We can’t look back a year from now and say we saw the wall tumbling down when we have the power right now to fortify it, by voting his protectors out.
I see him taking us down a path of destruction because he seems to be too compromised and is willing to get in bed with dirty people, a little too often. We hang around those we have something in common with. What does he have in common with the criminals that he’s had relationships with? If the Republicans can’t stand up, the Independents must stand up because we are the ones who make the difference in the elections. Stand up now.
