“There are no limits with God;
His resources are far beyond your abilities.
Never say, “I can’t” without saying. “He can.”
Never feel you are weak without knowing that He is strong.
You will never have to hold back due to fear,
Because He is with you---
You will never have to be defeated,
because His victory is yours.
You will never have to settle for the ordinary,
because His life in you extraordinary.

Busy work week. Working full time takes alot of my time! haha I miss my days off in the week, but I've managed well, though that first couple weeks I was so tired. This past week they messed up my schedule so I had to close 3 nights instead of 2 that we are only supposed to have to do. But I have off today and Sunday, so it's nice to have the whole weekend off.
I'm doing laundry, stuff around the house, baking, etc....Need to run out to Sam's Club and Target later on. It was nice to sleep in and leisurely stay in my robe and drink coffee and check computer stuff this morning. I'm always rushed during the week so I haven't had much time on here lately.
The Boss that hired me and came 2 years ago to the store (same week I did) transferred to a store closer to her home so she'd have less of a commute. I understand, but she will be missed. She is a christian and a nice person, easy to work for, & a great boss, we had a kindred spirit & became friends. The other co-manager also left-2 weeks before her! So we've had alot of change at work.
So the new boss is a guy who has been managers at other stores but never worked at Hobby Lobby. So far this week he's been doing ok, we'll see as the Christmas rush starts how he does. lol
So what's been going on other than work?
We helped at our church's Harvest festival on Halloween. My mom came with hubby and me too and we each monitored a game the kids played and gave them candy. It was a fun evening. I love getting involved at church. I still have pics to upload this weekend. Katie dressed up as "Where's Waldo" and went to Madison's Freak fest with her friends.
And of course I went out the day after Halloween to find the 50% off candy sales to stock up.
I took my mom to breakfast at Perkins and shopping last Saturday. I had neglected her all week since I started working full time so I hadn't spent much time with her. We had a nice 4 hours together.
That same day we had to make a trip to the Sprint Store in Madison since we dont' have one here. My cell died (only few months old) the screen went black but I could hear texts coming in! So I needed it replaced. It was hard waiting and not having a phone, especially since we dont' have a house phone anymore. I got it back Wednesday. It had more ring tones on it, which was nice. I really do like this phone and the touch screen.
I just ordered this 3 piece Coffee table/2 side ottomans. Awesome deal at Target.com. Free shipping, $10 off (use code target10), 3% back shopping target thru Ebates.com, AND I got 5% cash back using my Discover card.
I saw a coffee table like this at World Market, but it was too pricey. So then saw that Target sold them and waited for a sale. the top flips over to use as a tray and you can store blankets or whatever inside.
I plan on finding 2 recliners to match this, waiting for a good deal, of course! LOL
Haven't had much time lately to experiment and bake for hubby with his Gluten free foods. Just trying to get a dinner made each night we'll all eat is challenging. haha
I did find on Amazon.com an awesome deal on PAMELA'S GLUTEN FREE PANCAKE MIX. We tried a sample from the dietician and it was good and "normal" tasting. My store sells this for $17.50 for a 4 lb bag. You can make ANY baked good using this mix and there's alot of recipes on the back of the bag.
Well going thru Amazon I have a free year of Prime shipping so it is shipped to my door for $13.50 a bag. BUT....if I sign up for their "subscribe & save" it goes down to $11.33 a bag. (I'll automatically receive a new shipment of this item in intervals I choose (like every 6 months) at this discount price. Plus, all subscription orders ship free.)
Great bargain, then I don't have to try to mix up my own gluten free flour blend (which I have plenty of recipes for, this is easier and we know it tastes good).
Don't forget to "fall back" tonight. Turn your clocks back one hour for daylight savings time. extra hour of sleep!
I have a full week coming up. Besides working all week, we have our annual Holiday Open Heart ladies event at church Tuesday night and our monthly Ladies Card Making class Friday night. 2 fun events!
HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!!
