the waiting...

is over. beginning monday i will be gainfully employed again and i couldn't be happier. as i said before, i've learned many things during this ten month period and hopefully am a better person for it.

that being said....there will be a few new photographs - not of apples, leaves or acorns - this afternoon. hope you stay tuned for those.

then have to be a responsible girl and read the notebook of information and prepare to hit the ground running monday morning. you would not believe how well i slept last night. no more panic attacks at 3:00 a.m. prayers are answered and hard work pays off.

i will miss you all during the day but i'll still be around visiting - it just may take me a bit longer than usual. thank you for the support during this time. your good wishes and cheerleading kept me going on some dark, lonely days. but i do think of how thrilling it will be to come "home" and catch up on your daily doings.
