Today has been the saddest day at Stampin' Up! My little buddy who sits next to me was laid off this morning. It's so sad seeing her empty desk. Already there were things that I needed to ask her about upcoming events and she's gone! I've been sad all day.
Tomorrow is going to be Black Wednesday. I'm going to wear all black. There will be a ton of people laid off. Everyone should know whether they have a job or not by afternoon.
I love our company. I'ts been a wonderful 9 years. I hope to retire from this company. I love the people I work with. They're a great second family. Well ... let's hope that I'm still employed tomorrow!
Well ... I'm just an ordinary granny with 28 beautiful grandkids, 7 fabulous children, and 1 fantastic husband! My fantastic husband and I met while both serving missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints, in the Gulf States Mission. This mission included Mississippi, Louisiana, part of Tennessee, and most of Arkansas. While in the mission field we were committed to the service of the Lord and of course no dating was involved. But two dates after our missions we were engaged and married two months later. Life has been wonderful with my Lynn! While raising our 7 children I helped supplement our income by teaching vocal lessons, babysitting, and doing hair, all in the comfort of my home. I'm currently employed at World Joy, a nonprofit organization improving health and education in the Atiwa District of Ghana, Africa. Now, we have been called to serve as full time Public Affair Specialists for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in the Africa South East Area, living in Johannesburg, South Africa for 23 months. We are beyond excited since we will have each other as full-time companions 24/7. It REALLY is a wonderful life!
