Well, it has been so stinking long since I've updated. UGH! I think of post often, then I don't have time. Imagine that.

Work has been extremely busy. Okay, just in case you don't know. I manage a convenience store with a Subway in it. So that means I have a store, a gas station and a restaraunt. Fun huh! Actually I really, really enjoy my job. From the end of March until May 10 Subway had a $5 footlong sale. EVERY sub that we had you could get a footlong for $5. Sounds great huh! Actually it was great for the consumer. We were so busy we couldn't see straight. The sale ended, and the continued a new $5 every day value menu. Which now means that we have 8 of our menu items for $5 each day. This in turn means we haven't really slowed down much at all. Then on top of this, it is graduation time. LOTS of big party orders. So needless to say I've been a little on the tired side of life lately. In fact last weekend I came home from work on Friday and fell asleep at 6:45 (Jordan informed me of the time) and slept until 9:30 on Saturday morning.

Oh, today our fuel is about $.10 cheaper than the surrounding towns and then it is about $.20 cheaper than here in UC. Evidendtly we've been on the news this morning. Which means that my store is beyond busy.

We went camping the weekend of Memorial day. We went with Rob's sisters and their families. It was so much fun. It rained while we set up, and then not much after that. It progressively got warmer. The kids had a great time.

We have been attending a church in Muncie Indiana now. I know, I know, we keep changing, and we just joined a church, and it was a hard decision. Maybe sometime I can explain it all. Most people don't understand. We are thinking this may be the move that ends "most" moves.

Today I am off, the boys are doing their chores, with a little assistance. Zach has a dentis appoitment, so we will leave for the appointment and eat something (I'm thinking Taco Bell) and the go and see a movie. Horton hears a Who is playing at the cheap theater. We've all been wanting to see it, so this is the perfect time.

Well, I must go and "assist" with the chores of the day.

I sure miss my blog friends.

I didn't realize you had your own store to manage now!

Congratulations! That seems a fast climb up the ladder.

Good to see you post again. Now I'm hungry for a Subway footlong.
