Stuff Happens

I want to start off by saying Jaelynn's birthday was a huge hit. Jaelynn was the star of the day! She had so much fun being the Magicians helper. Sometimes Jae is a little nervous and shy when it comes to getting in front of large crowds, but it was her day to shine and she loved it. I will post a couple pictures as soon as I have them in the computer.

As for the title "Stuff Happens", I just found out that Western Travel will be closing it's doors for good! As of January 1st I will be jobless. I know we've been slowing down for some time now, but it's still kind of a shock when it's official. We've made jokes about it for a couple of years, but it still seemed like it was going to keep tickin' for a while.

I started at western travel about 12 years ago. It's been a fun ride. I have been able to take advantage of some pretty terrific deals and have been to some pretty fun places. Places I would have most likely never gone.

I will miss the friends I've made here. Friends that have been through almost all of the major moments in my life right along with me. They were there for my wedding and they were there through both pregnancies. I hope that even though we won't be working together any more, we can still keep in touch.

On a positive note, there have been a few doors opened to me that I will be able to explore. JoAnn has some son's that own their own businesses and are always in need of a little help. I'm not sure what the positions would be but they have both offered to hire me if I need a place to go. I have also been advised of other positions with friends or family that might work out to my advantage too.

I guess it's time to move on to the next chapter in my life and hopefully be able to help provide for my family and find something I also enjoy doing. I'll keep my fingers crossed. Wish me luck!

Bummer, Lisa. This recession sucks. I have no doubt you'll find something that suits you and rock its house instantaneously though. Make sure you update your blog when you decide on something. We're all interested to hear where you end up.

All the best!

Lisa, thanks so much for the magicial, it was so fun to see the girls laughing their heads off, and Jae was so cute, especially when he said she was in love that was funny, and when he told her the rabbit bits, that was pretty funny to. She the cutest facil expressions. And Jamie had a great time. You'll definatly have to update us on the job thing. I really hope you find a job that appreciates how improtant you are, and gives you all your worth. Good luck Lis, and again, I'm here if you need me.

Jae was sure cute at her birthday party. Her expressions watching the magician were adorable. Thanks for the fun party!

I am sorry to hear about your job. All you need is one more thing to stress about, but it seems like you have some good leads. I'll keep my ears open for you.

I feel so bad for you. I am just glad that I don't have a job right now so I don't have to worry about losing it. It sounds like you have some prospects and I know you are a smart girl so I'm sure you'll get something. Hey Bryan's work is hiring if you want to become a stock broker!

Glad Jaelynn's birthday was fun. Sorry we missed it but we had some stuff going on!
