Why does everything have to be so complicated? Or do I just make it that way? I liked life so much better when my mom and dad told me what to do, when to do it, how to do it, and when to stop it. Not that I ever followed directions but it still made life easier to have someone else to blame for whatever decision I made.

JOB WISE.......After all my speech and ranting and raving about retiring and asking everyone to pray about the decision etc etc etc., I just was given a very substantial pay raise from the school district. I was more than suprised since in the 30 years I have been there I think this is the 2nd district raise I have been given. Poor little broke district. I have gotten the mandatory state raises and all but this makes everything different. Now, I really need to talk to my financial whiz brother in law. So, keep praying. I do love my job just not right now. The first of school is a nightmare but after the first week or so it is wonderful.

HEALTH WISE.......I am also going to Houston next week to see a new cardiologist for a second opinion of my medical "stuff". I am going to just say that everything job wise, retirement wise, and all is on hold until I can get my health in line. I am going to say that is the # 1 priority right now.

AND IN CONCLUSION.......So, here I go again..................not knowing where I am going. It is so my life.

Ooooh, I hate to say it but those dollar signs affect my decisions in ways that I can't describe!

I'm glad you are putting your health first. That IS the most important. Then later after all the health stuff is taken care of...everything will just fall into place. God is in control.....I just know it! Wow...I sound like my mother. HA

I love you and you are always in my prayers.

Oh and congrats on your raise. It's about DANG time! You should have got that 20+ years ago!! :)

Thanks for going to Austin with us yesterday. It makes things so much easier when you are there. Hahhkope we don't depend on you too much--if so just tell me. We are happy about your decision to put your health #1 priority. Love you!!

Lynn - you have been in my prayers. I know what you are going through with the job decision (minus the heart issue) - it's just that the money helps so much! Roy is going through a very rough time right now and we are back to the cardiologist next Monday for the verdict. You know, he had bypass in 1999, stints in 2001 and hasn't been back to the doctor since. But, he is regretting that decision. He failed his stress test...miserably...and we are both anxious about what's coming. But, we know that the Lord will be there with His mighty hand doing things only He can do.
Take good care - don't see you often, but have so much fun when I do!
Hugs - Mindy
