Yup it's 4 am and I'm awake! It feels kinda eerie! Like when I was awake all night when hunter passed! Mom got me all freaked out because she called me and said, "Did you hear the explosion?". And I was of course sleeping so no! She said the red barn at the bottom of the hill exploded! She's like you can feel the heat & see the light from your house. I did hear an explosion after she called. And I saw the light from my house. Dad's combine is gone :(. How very sad :(. He only got to use it one season I believe. He just got it last year in august. We were at the state fair and he couldn't stand it that they were delivering his combine and we weren't home lol. So pray the insurance company covers everything! Hopefully it wasn't arson! I would be very upset! I still keep hearing the sirens go off! It's bad! I pray the firefighters get it under control. There are a ton of other bales around there to catch fire! And mom said the heat is really bad. Hopefully it won't destroy other things like the siding on my parent's house. How crazy! Thanks for the prayers!

The Job Search

Well I have 3 interviews tomorrow!  Hopefully I find something.  I like this job I am doing now but the income is just not there...  We are struggling!  So I am praying something turns out.  Without anymore overhead because I cannot afford it. 

I also found another job to do from home called AmeriPlan.  It's a medical discount plan.  So I signed up and we kinda sorta have health insurance now!  That is exciting!  So I will be trying to sell these plans now.  I hope I get to help people.  And make some extra money!  :)  If you are interested in any of those plans you can visit my website:  or if you are interested in doing it for extra money:

I am bummed that I could not make it to the Timeless Keepsakes meeting tonight, again.  Last meeting was the day that Hunter passed so that was a good reason.  This time it's because we have Phoenix and Lucas had to leave for work for 8:30 because he is working midnights.  I am going to stop by there after my first interview tomorrow though because it's in Chesterfield.
