Are You Still Deciding Your Benefit Package?

We recently found out that Charles has health and dental coverage with his part time Uhaul job. When I looked over the dental coverage I discovered it's better then my Century Link coverage!

To my surprise it actually provides 100% of preventative dental coverage, cost less and we don't have to change our dentist.

For vision - family will be covered, I'm staying with my employer's health coverage and Marcus and Charles are going with UHaul.

Please take the time to study your benefit packages. You could find that you'll save some money and get better coverage.

Charles giving an ironing lesson

Despite the fact the property management group had fired my husband he was the only source of onsite passwords, access codes, paperwork, etc, that still lived at the property. So the new managers would call him, almost daily and ask for help.
(I know...crazy)

We received a phone call, yesterday, that they would lowered our rent to the manager's rate for the next 2 months!

Charles also has a final interview with the TSA! And they have a vacancy!

The Lord answers our prayers at his own time and in his own way.

I recently realized that our Heavenly Father, wanted me to discovery that I was meant to be a mom and wife. And you know what? I truly love it!

My passion has been parenting our son and being a supportive spouse, these 18 years. At each "working stage", both have been challenging and demanding but it was the right choice for me and our family.

When your 18 year old son tells you that you've been a great mom and still gives you hugs, you know you've done some thing right. And isn't that our raise them into Godly men and go out on their own?

I want to let all the moms out there know that there is no right or wrong.

Let's quit beating up on each other and ourselves and support each other's choice.

When the weather is terrible I'm extremely thankful for doing my job from home.

We're Moving...Again!

We can no longer afford the apartment so we'll be moving very soon. Everyone is bummed but there's worst things in this world.

We'll put some items in storage and downsizing to a 2 bedroom apartment.

Charles and I have decided to seek employment in self storage management. The free apartment and utilities is a huge reason that we're looking at returning.

In the meantime, I pray for all the families that are dealing with making hard decisions in this rough economy.
