This is weird. I was just certain I had posted about some of this, but it’s not here. I hope I didn’t delete some stuff from a backup or something.


You’ve seen in separate posts about Hannah’s latest hospitalization. This is some of what’s happening with the rest of us.

Barry is now working for U.S. Cellular—just finished his training, in fact, and he really likes his job, the people he works with, and the company he’s working for.

Amanda has broken up with her boyfriend. She and Barry are finalizing arrangements for them to share an apartment in Knoxville. So it will lead to changes in housing situations for a lot of us.

Caty had her tonsils and adenoids (at one time she told someone she was having her androids removed) taken out on Valentine’s Day. She sounds completely different to me now.

We had a birthday party for my mom on her 84th birthday. It really seemed to be a great surprise to her. We had all of the grandkids there, too. She got a combination VHS/DVD player, and now she’s trying to figure out how to work it.

I need to get back to the hospital, so more news later.

Amanda’s job

leave a comment

Amanda has started on her regular call schedule now, working for U.S. Cellular. We’re very pleased for a number of reasons, not least of which being that U.S. Cellular was picked by voters as the “Best Place to Work” in Knoxville, according to an informal survey announced in the Knoxville News-Sentinel Oct. 17. We know that she has had nothing but good things to say of her training, and she is impressed with the people with whom she works. It’s good for her to be happy with her work.

Her boyfriend seems to be doing well at the Cedar Bluff Applebee’s also, and they like their new apartment complex. So that situation is all very good, for which we are thankful.
