    Default Should I really be sad?

    We just found out my daughter (AmandaJo) got her new job! Good news really, but this means she will not be able to make it to the forum retreat. So if anyone would like to take her spot it is available, single bed at retreat center.

    Procrastinate. It frees up time to quilt!

    Happy and sad! So glad to hear she got the new job, but sad she won't make it. Did she by chance tell them when she accepted that she had a vacation already scheduled? Sometimes when you do that, they are more than happy to accommodate you and she could do both!!

    You be happy for her, Beth! We can all be sad that she's not there!!
    Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Yes, and they suggested that she postpone her vacation, that is when they will be having a large group of new county hires going to new-hire training.

    Jobs are much harder to get than reservations for a retreat. Be happy for her. Maybe she will be able to go next year!

    Plus, the extra income means more fabric to put on my wish list! Someone's getting a list of things to bring home for me!

    So happy she got the job! Please pray for my DD who has been looking for employment since June. Her unemployment benefits will run out soon and she is really upset. She applies herself every day to the job search. Prayers are asked. Thanks.

    AmandaJo, Congratulations on the new job. We'll miss you at the retreat, and hope you'll be able to attend next year!
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?
