November Already?

Wow! It's almost that time of year again..CHRISTMAS!! For those of you who know me, I love Christmas!! It is going to be a crazy time this year, as we have the wedding just a few days before, but I think that my Grandparents are coming for the entire time, and they are always fun to hang out with. It will be fun to see everyone else (family, friends) as well, during the wedding. I just hope we get some snow!!

Anker has got a few more contracts, so that has been a blessing! We still need a few extra coins, as we need to get the car some tires and get a tune-up, Christmas, etc, so I have decided to take on part time job. I quit Sears in October, and I have enjoyed staying at home, but I am needing a bit more of a routine, so when I saw this job, I thought I had to apply! (that is a very long sentence) It is at a second hand bookstore downtown. I have had my first little interview yesterday, and I have an hour "hands on" interview this next week sometime. It sounds like I have the job, though. I don't think it is seasonal, either, so if all goes well, and if we all like each other, and if I like the job, and if nothing else comes up, I may just stay there for awhile. I love books, and I really like going to this store.

Last Saturday, Anker and I decided to go to Falkland, as we had heard of a really nice restaurant that serves really good and inexpensive breakfasts. After pushing back two times, we decided to go. It was a fun afternoon, and we also stopped at a Christmas Store in Westwold. It was a fun experience. They had a ton of Christmas stuff, lots of decorated Christmas trees, and fun ornaments. Definately worth the trip. They are open year round!

I have been praying for more friends about my age, that are in the same stage of life as me (us). I don't have alot of friends here, just ones that I can call on if I need to get out. I have a few church friends, but mainly ones that I just visit with at church, and maybe go out with a few times, there aren't alot of women that are around my age, married or single with kids, etc. I met a girl at church a few months ago, and we are finally connecting a bit. They have a little guy who just turned one, so that has truly been a blessing. My wonderful friend, Jill who I have grown up with is moving away, so I am very sad about that. She lives SO CLOSE to me, and it has been great getting together with her and her kids. I think I went there every day for a week a couple of weeks go:) I also got together with a few more of my friends from back home, and it was great to see them, and catch up. I hope that that keeps up.

I think that is pretty much it. We did get our pictures done at Sears in October, and we are doing Christmas cards this year. We didn't do a card last year, so I thought we would do a "First Anniversary" Christmas Card.

Have a great rest of November!!
