What a crazy couple of weeks.....

It all started when I got laid-off from my job of 8 1/2 years.  The attorney I worked for joined forces with his sister in another Town..they didn't need a secretary there, and it was way too far for me to drive anyway.

Then, I went for four days to a wedding in Virginia.  It was my daughter's boyfriend's sister who got married.  I ended up knowing quite a few people there from high school.  Was very interesting.  I posted pics of the dresses I made in an earlier post.  Here is a pic of my daughter Shannon and me in our dresses.  These dresses were made from the same pattern!:
When I got back I went on two job interviews.  Was hired at a large firm in Downtown Buffalo, New York.  I've been out of the circuit for quite awhile, working for a solo practioner, that I didn't realize the money I could make working for a large firm.  It was a VERY pleasant surprise.  I start my job on Monday, Nov. 15th.  Very excited and a little nervous.  Now I better get sewing some new clothes, huh??

Meanwhile, my cousin who lives in Iowa has been wanting to get together with me for years.  Our family is dwindling and we thought we better get together sooner than later.  I haven't seen him in 25 years and we really missed each other.  He sent me a round-trip ticket to Las Vegas!!!  All expenses paid by him.  Boy, I truly owe him.  We had so much fun.  Spent two wonderful, quiet, exciting, fun days.  Cried and laughed over all our past.....
Here is Dan and me. 

This was my favorite exhibit, the Mirage had a place called The Secret Garden.  They had gorgeous Lions and these sweet dolphins.


Well, now back to reality....job monday....

Wow a lot has been going on with you! Congrats on your new job. Are you all settled in there by now? Your daughter and you look great in your new dresses. Good job on making two entirely different looks from one pattern. And what a great cousin to pay for you to go to Vegas. It must have been fun.
