The Countdown

Do you know what today is?  That's right!  It's October 28, exactly 1 month until my new grand daughter is due.  I'm still not sure that it has even sunk in, yet.  But, in about a month or so, I will be a new grandmother!  I'm also ashamed to say that I have not picked out a "grandma" name.  I've got to get on the ball!  I STILL have not found anything that sounds fitting. 

Speaking of Justin and Chelsea, the last update I gave you had Justin out of a job.  That has not changed as of yet, but there is hope on the horizon.  He applied for a driver's helper for the upcoming holiday season with UPS.  He has an interview next Thursday!  I know it is only seasonal, but it's better than nothing!  It would be great if it would get his foot in the door with UPS.  But, I don't want to get ahead of myself.  He is also checking into taking some classes to keep his schooling going.  We all know that education is the key to a better future.  He doesn't want to live in Scottsboro for the rest of his life. 

Justin and his band, Wild Tangent, are playing a "gig" this Friday and Saturday night in Scottsboro.  They are actually going to get paid.  It probably won't be a huge amount by the time they divide it 5 ways, but it's a start. 

On a different note, Chase and Jordan had their pictures in the same local newspaper on the same day this week!  At first we heard about Chase's pic.  We immediately went out and bought a few papers.  There was an awesome shot of him diving to make a tackle.  Kevin said that Superman didn't have anything on Chase!  So, we were all happy about the pic.  The next day at school, I was showing it around to some of the people I work with.  Kevin called me after lunch and said that Jordan was in that paper, too.  His picture was in an insert about half-time shows.  He was standing there jamming on the bass guitar.  So, I was a proud momma, indeed!

I know it's killing you that Justin hasn't found a full-time permanent job yet, but try to have faith that the right job will come along. I know it's hard, though, because, like me, you're a "fixer" and want to try to make it all better.

Oh yeah, I forgot to add that a cousin of mine is called "Bella" by her granddaughter. I think that's precious, plus she's a young grandmother like you so it seems a more fitting moniker.

Another friend is called Honey by her grandkids. The oldest started calling her that because that's what he most often heard her husband, who is called "Bop" by the kids, use when referring to her.

Hope these help.
