Gaining momentum for the big day!

Waiting, in vain, for a new position. *sigh* I didn't get the job, so much disappointment all around. Trying, in vain, to understand God and His ways. *bigger sigh* *adding a pout*

Andrea crunched her car a couple of days ago, and she is so sad she actually blogged about it. Her first accident. Lots of tears. Leave her some bloggy love, will you.

We're trying to plan Thanksgiving (my most favoritest holiday), without, of course, actually doing any real planning. Here's the deal...we camp for Thanksgiving. Yes, I know it's weird, but since our extended families are where fun goes to die, we decided to change things about 5 years ago. All three of our kids aged 15, 18, 21 love camping. At the same time! How could we pass that up? The deal is, this year we live in Oklahoma, not Texas. And the folks that did the planning in years past live in Texas. So we have to be the grups this year. They also had the only real oven because of their fancy-schmancy camper. Oh, and the turkey deep fryer. I'm going to have to lie down now, I'm feeling faint.

So, for any of you who live near Grand Lake, Ok (I wish we were going to Grand Lake, CO!) and know anything about campsites, please help a sister out!

Thrilling tales of intrigue!...or not

All right, I haven't posted in a coon's age (how old is that, anyway?), and so, since I have nothing going on, I thought I'd tell you all about it.

I'm still waiting to hear on the last job I applied for at the University. Of course, since ORU is awash in controversy right now, they may not be making any decisions along that line anytime soon. *grinding her teeth and rolling her eyes* It really is the perfect position for me, and I'm trying to trust that God has this all worked out.

OH! Today is my 24th anniversary! YAY! We're going out to dinner tonight, and maybe doing something this weekend. I hope so - I need to get away!

I finished editing the book I've been shuttling to and from Texas for the last year. So glad to get that done! It's really strange to edit for someone you've never met.

We have a new dog - a "party colored" standard poodle named Danny, who is 10 months old. Big and goofy would best describe this hound. He knows all sorts of tricks. His favorites are steal the hat or dirty sock, and empty the trash can. Those are not my favorite tricks. Oh, and drink out of the potty. yum. Our small poodle is having a bit of trouble convincing Danny that he (Joe) is the boss. Much grumpiness ensues. Though, when no one's looking directly at them, Joe actually plays with Danny. That's pretty funny.

I have much more fascinating information, but I'll save that for another post. I wouldn't want you to have to go on heart medication or anything.

Much love!
