Updates...one at a time

Looking at the last time I got on this thing...it has been 10 days! I am so far behind, I am not sure where to even begin. I am just going to update on one subject each day and pray that I haven't lost too many of you along the way...from lack of posting! I will start with my job. AT&T is a huge company. I loved the people I worked with, my boss, and the kind people that I talked with on the phone. What I didn't/couldn't get over was the two solid weeks that I couldn't keep down breakfast or lunch! I had such anxiety about the phone and my numbers, that I was on the best diet ever! My Jenny Craig people loved it...I, not so much! So, after talking with Gary (my coach), he told me to think about it, but that my numbers were pretty good. I kid you not that at lunch that day, I got a call from a staffing company (one of the three that I had sent my resume to while laid off) and they wanted me to come in for an interview. Without making this too drawn out...I left AT&T (with the status of rehirable...as a sales associate) and went to work as a Member Services Representative (teller) at a Credit Union. It is a great place...very small, but it is the banking industry and better to find a job when moving as often as we do! (Did I mention that there isn't a call center around any other base that we would be stationed at?) Anyway, update number one out of the way! Only ten-twenty more to go!

Glad you found another job. Anything that gives you that much stress is definitely not your calling. God will equip you for what He needs you to do. Awaiting the next twenty... :)

Is there any chance that you will be going to Abilene for homecoming? I'm thinking about making the trip...IT'S A LONG TRIP...and I am thinking that if Estee is going to be there...I have to go!
