How time flies! We have been moved into our beautiful apartment for quite a bit. I love it!

Kurt has been working for W.B. Mason, and W.B. only. He quit his second job so is now working 60 hours a week which is incredibly better then 80! 

I am working at Kohls and am getting quite busy through November. I worked about 40 hours the past couple of weeks. And yes, this week I do work 8-4:30 black Friday. My first time working the day after Thanksgiving! I hear it is crazy, but I'm not too crazy about it.

I have the opportunity to help a Special Needs girl with her first job, putting the merchandise in bags while I ring at the register through the holidays. The Managers thought I would be most compatible to helping her.  So Friday she will be helping me. I am thankful for the opportunity to help her.  It will be a long day Friday :)  I am very thankful for my job even as it's turning crazy busy because it allows us to be able to get gifts for each other and others and to travel to be with family. 

We started a Ladies book study at church for Sunday School. "Lies Women Believe, And the Truth that Sets Them Free." We read the book and fill in our own study book throughout the week, then go over it on Sunday  I am enjoying it very much! 

Kurt and I went up to visit my grandparents Friday night through Sunday. A very nice lady covered my shift at work! :) We spent Saturday morning Christmas gift shopping in Freeport at the outlets,  then went to Portland to shop at the mall in the afternoon, to my Grandparents to enjoy a great dinner, then back to Freeport for all the beautiful lights everywhere. And best of all, Starbucks Peppermint Mocha Lattes and a horse drawn carriage ride!  It was so lovely I will remember it forever.

We are going to New Hampshire for Thanksgiving.

Kurt has still been applying to Police Departments in Maine. He has been to a couple of interviews. They all really like him but there is always someone more qualified. That's life.  

In the mean time I am not letting life pass me by and am enjoying it to it's fullest!!
